Blurb:

Capture his heart.

Steal his crown.

Noor is the unwanted, unloved third born of the Aten, chosen vessel of the sun goddess, Sol. While she has no chance at inheriting her father’s title, what she truly longs for is peace from his unrelenting hatred. Hope builds that she may finally be able to claim that reprieve when a missive arrives from the House of the Moon.

The new Lumin, chosen of the moon god, Lumos, seeks to broker peace with the Kingdom of Helios for the first time in ages. He envisions open trade routes and an end to archaic rivalries. His dedication to this cause extends to visions of a union between the two families by marrying one of Aten’s daughters, if one of the matches is a fit.

Driven by his own twisted agenda, Noor’s father is willing to sacrifice his daughters as pawns to steal the crown for him to further his despotic reign, pitting sister against sister in a brutal battle for power. But Noor must come out the victor, either by capturing the Lumin’s heart or stealing his crown. For whomever wears the crown of moonlight, holds the power of the moon itself. With such strength at her command, she could finally defeat her tyrannical father.

Yet this endeavor cannot be accomplished without great sacrifice. As Noor learns more about Lumin Caelum, guilt over her betrayal consumes her, burning hot as the sun itself. If only he wasn’t kind, and selfless, and exactly what she wanted. If only she had greater dominion over her heart…

Can Noor carry out her plan and end her father’s vile reign? Or will unlikely alliances allow a new day to dawn?

Heartbroken and lost now her mind has been shattered, but not her fiery spirit. The only way to exact revenge and to right all wrong doings is to train to lose greater control.

To succeed in finding answers and maintaining her sanity, important choices must be made, and the collateral damage will be monumental.

 

Was it better to remain silent and in control, or let her inner demon out?

Blurb:

A knightress with a heart of courage.

 

A prince who is hiding a dark secret.

 

Each the salvation their kingdom needs to survive. But first, they need to survive one another.

 

 

By bestselling author Randi Cooley Wilson, the Knightress Series is a heroic quest through a world of honor, romance, and gallant knights!

 

 

Seventeen-year-old Greer has an instinctual talent for both magic and combat, each earning her a coveted position with the Order of The Holy Knights. And while her warrior gifts are unparalleled to any other, the reason for her knightly acceptance and admittance to the chivalric order lies far deeper than skill—a hidden truth buried long ago—a secret that surges through her veins.

 

Prince Law is preparing to inherit the crown on his eighteenth birthday. A Mage, Law is the last descendant of dragons. But Law has secrets of his own—secrets his family has hidden from him. If allowed to take the throne, his dragon magic will protect his existence. That is if his enemies don’t slay him before his coronation.

 

Fearing for Law’s safety, his father beseeches the Holy Knights to protect his only heir. Much to her dismay, Greer is chosen as Law’s Knightress. She loathes the spoiled future king. He resents being tethered to a girl for protection. When the two are forced together on a quest to claim a royal jewel, they uncover family secrets and deceits.

 

To save the kingdom, they’ll have to put their trust in one another before a war is unleashed. With the kingdom’s future at stake, can Greer convince Law to walk away from the throne? Or will the pull of destiny be too powerful for him to resist?

Blurb:

I was born in the shadows of night. A witch destined to protect those who are vulnerable in their waiting hour. Like all those who came before me, this lineage was considered an honor, a gift given to a select few.

 

My existence was expected to be a promise of simplicity and rituality. The one clear path between life and death. It proved to be anything but.

 

As time passed, my mind began to wonder. My soul craving adventure outside of my darkened world. A life in the light… I could only imagine how spectacular that would be.

 

Some saw this curiosity as the beginning of my fall. To me, it was the start… of my uprising.

Whenever she’s not reading or writing, Brandy is spending time with her family and friends, throwing around crazy ideas, teaching, and singing like a rock star at a concert for no one else but herself. She loves plants, but unfortunately is a killer of anything that requires water but can’t voice (scream) their needs.

Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.

 

In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.

 

Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep.

Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.

 

To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.

Title: Pirates of Serpent Sea
Author: D. Fischer & Amanda K. Mann
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy
Cover Designer: Jacqueline Sweet
Publication Date: July 16th, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Remini Draven loved being a pirate. She enjoyed plundering villages and discovering legendary treasures just as much as the next guy on the Black Moon ship. But, when a deal was struck between the Captain of the Black Moon and a sniveling merchant, she walked away from life on the Black Moon.

 

The deal that was made was unforgivable. Genocide. The merchant wanted the Black Moon crew to steal an amulet that will destroy the sirens. Remi refused to be part of it. And now . . . now she has to find a way to save the sirens before the Black Moon reaches them, and the amulet.

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.

Blurb:

Fans of RED QUEEN and FALLING KINGDOMS will devour this action-packed fantasy series filled with romance and political intrigue. 

Seventeen-year-old Rema lives in a brutal kingdom where travel between regions is forbidden, people are starving, and looking at someone the wrong way can mean death. Nineteen-year-old Darmik is the king’s son and Commander of the King’s Army. He spends his days roaming the island, doing his father’s bidding and trying to maintain control over the people. 

When a chance encounter throws Rema and Darmik together, they share an instantaneous connection, but any sort of relationship between them is strictly forbidden. Darmik’s brother, the Crown Prince, notices Darmik’s interest in Rema and, in a calculated, political move, blackmails her. Faced with an impossible choice, Rema is forced to sacrifice her heart in order to save her family. 

As Rema is taken to the palace with the Crown Prince, Darmik confronts the growing rumor that a legitimate blood heir to the throne exists and is trying to overthrow Darmik’s family. In Darmik’s quest to hunt down and kill the threat, he discovers that nothing is as it seems. Locked in the king’s castle, Rema finds herself a key player in a massive power struggle. When Darmik shows up, she’s not sure if she can trust him. The line between friends, enemies, and loyalty becomes blurred. As truths are unlocked, Rema understands that she just might be the key to finding the rightful heir and restoring peace to the kingdom . . . if she can manage to stay alive long enough.
