Blurb:

Ice-princess, Sara Sinclair, is the most un-Blue Blue Dragon of her Clan. And now her parents
signed a marriage contract to an absolute asshat. Sara has no interest in being
one half of a snobby Blue power couple. In fact, all she can dream about is
biting her obnoxious fiancé’s head off and burying him in the garden. Since
that can’t happen, her future seems like a lost cause, until she meets Ian, a
fire-breathing Red Dragon—who is everything her fiancé is not.

Now Sara’s jumped from the frying pan into the fire because dating outside of your Clan is
against Directorate law. Ian could be thrown in jail or executed without a
trial. But now that she knows what love feels like, she can’t imagine being
with anyone else.

Talk about a rock and a hard place…

Blurb:

Welcome to Summervale…

One of the USA’s top vacation spots. Situated in Upstate New York. It’s a sunny
coastal town. Population…

Oh, who cares.

The tourism ads paint Summervale NY as the perfect, picturesque town. It’s the
ideal location to have spring break in, or retire at.

But I know the truth.

 

17 year old Darcie Bell Ryder thought life would be different on the other side of
the tracks. In this town, you are judged on by what side of the river you live
on.

She was born a ‘have not’, but due to her father’s new social status and job, she
moves into the rich neighbourhood called The Circle, and becomes a ‘have’.

In the Circle, she is introduced to the other kids at the town’s annual back to
school bonfire on the beach.

Here she meets the handsome, and totally out her league, Dane O’Connell.

Even though they are from the opposite sides of the river, they share a connection
they both can’t deny.

But when the body of a teenage girl turns up dead on the shore, the mystery to her
death will either bring the teens closer together…

or tear them further apart.

 

In the first instalment of a new YA contemporary mystery series from L.L. Hunter,
there are secrets a plenty in Summervale, but only some will surface. The rest
will be taken to the grave.

Hosted by: LadyAmber’s PR

Blurb:

Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has….

 

Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But when she hears a rumor
that he hooked up with her, she gives him a choice: be her boyfriend for a
month to show other guys that she’s dateable – despite her overprotective and
very intimidating brothers – or deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of
the girl with whom he actually did hook up.

Bryce didn’t know the other Haley even had a boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his
back. And now, not only is he being blackmailed, he’s being blackmailed by an
honor student. His new “girlfriend” has two three-legged dogs, her father mows grass
at the country club, and she’s…well, difficult. And different.

Can something so fake turn into something real?

Publication Date: August 28th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: 
Some destinies are written in the stars. Others must be bought with blood…

The Zodia are real. Clawing their way from a long-forgotten tomb, they emerge, ravenous to claim everyone born under their star signs. Plotting to resurrect kingdoms no human knew existed, they are driven by a hunger for vengeance against the one who buried them: Aries.
Larken is a natural born sprinter, but even she can’t outrun the darkness closing in. A shelter-in-place order has been issued, causing widespread panic. Some brush the alarm off as a drill, until people begin to disappear… vanishing without a trace. Left with only one option, Larken’s brother does what he must to save her life… and calls forth Aries.
Considered a traitor by his own kind, only Aries has the power to stand against the Zodia. But he can’t do it alone. Mystically bonded to Larken, the pair must band together for the fight to come if either hope to make it out alive. Neither anticipated the passion that would ignite between them. Yet, in a world suddenly thrust into chaos, it may be the key to their survival.
The Zodia are out for blood with their attentions inexplicably focused on Larken. When long buried truths finally come to light, will their love be their salvation or their curse?
“A mesmerizing and haunting twist on a familiar tale you don’t want to miss. “ – Cameo Renae, USA Today bestselling author of the Hidden Wings Series

Title: With Shield and Ink and Bone
Author: Casey L. Bond

Cover Designer: Melissa Stevens at The Illustrated Author
Publication Date: Nov. 13th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: 
A hard-earned shield.

 

Days before she is to take her place as a shield maiden, like her mother before her, two deaths alter the course of Liv’s future. One belonged to a witch who called her by name, the other a chieftain from the north. Vengeance for the chieftain’s death comes in a wild fury that burns her village and slaughters her family. Left for dead, Liv pleads to Skuld – norn and weaver of the future – to spare her. A deal is struck that will endow her with the dark magic needed to claim her vengeance. But this power comes at an unfathomable price…

 

Ink made from the ashes of loved ones.

 

After his home is attacked, Calder races to warn neighboring villages of the threat. Little does he know he’s traveling into the path of fate that will lead him straight to Liv. Despite being broken, angry, and overwhelmed by power she cannot contain, it’s her willingness to defend others that draws Calder to her.

 

Armor forged from the bones of those she held dear.

 

Together, Liv and Calder discover they are two sides of the same sharpened blade. Rising from the heartache and fury in their pasts, they see a future together worth fighting for. With their strengths and hearts combined, can they become a force powerful enough to defeat the fleet of darkness coming for them? Or will the thread of fate that binds them unravel?

For sixteen year old Mattie Hathaway, this is her normal everyday routine. She’s been able to see
ghosts since her mother tried to murder her when she was five years old. No way
does she want anyone to know she can talk to spooks. Being a foster kid is hard

 Normally, she just ignores the ghosts and they go away. That is until she see’s the ghost of her
foster sister… Sally.

Everyone thinks Sally’s just another runaway, but Mattie knows the truth—she’s dead. Murdered.
Mattie feels like she has to help Sally, but she can’t do it alone. Against her
better judgment, she teams up with a young policeman, Officer Dan, and together
they set out to discover the real truth behind Sally’s disappearance.

Only to find out she’s dealing with a much bigger problem, a serial killer, and she may be the next
victim…

Will Mattie be able to find out the truth before the killer finds her?

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Blurb:

“Is there anyone you trust, Nefari?” Dao asks. “Yes. I trust death.”

 

For ten years, Nefari Ashcroft, princess of the Shadow Kingdom, has hidden. For ten years,
she’s endured the memory of everyone she’s lost. Half the shadow people are
dead, the other half are enslaved, and her once prosperous kingdom is nothing
but an elaborate mass grave.

 

Now, dark magic has allowed the Queen of Salix to wreak havoc on the realm; wraiths hunt from the
sky, the harvestmen march across the land, and the bone criers pick apart the
flesh of the corpses left behind.

 

Nefari was prophesied to rise and be the sword of the realm. With her bright magic, she
was born to conquer the darkness. And for ten years, she’s trained to do just
that. . .

 

It should be easy, since everyone thought she died the day her kingdom was destroyed. But staying
hidden – remaining ‘nobody’ – is simpler than accepting her past, enduring her
fate, and claiming her crown.

 

This book follows The Woe of Shadows (Heavy Lies the Crown: Prequel).

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!

Bestselling and award-winning author D. Fischer is a mother of two very busy boys, a wife to a
wonderful husband, and an owner of two sock-loving German Shorthair Pointers.
They also have a cat named Geralt, but since Geralt adopted them and not the
other way around, the cat is more of a tenant who occasionally purr-purrs for
his rent, if he’s not too busy murdering nerf darts.

Together, these misfits live in Orange City, Iowa.

When D. Fischer isn’t chasing after her children, she spends her time typing like a mad woman
while consuming vast amounts of caffeine. Sometimes, if her husband can manage
to remind her of the real world outside her office window, they hike!

Known for the darker side of imagination, she enjoys freeing her creativity through worlds
that don’t exist, no matter how much we wish they did.
