Samurai

The
Valiant Series Book 3

by
Joanna White

Genre:
Epic Fantasy

Okada
Akari and Sakamoto Megumi just may be two women in over their
head.

Okada
Akari is a samurai, the daughter of the Chief Advisor to the Emperor
of the Sakamoto clan. One day on a mission, she is captured by a
mysterious warrior and taken to an enemy camp—an enemy filled with
strange, foreign powers the likes of which her world has never
seen. What’s worse, a foreign stranger is supplying her enemy
with weapons her people cannot hope to fight against.
 Yet
that is only the beginning of her journey, one filled with war and
love, sacrifice, and darkness.

Sakamoto
Megumi has wanted to be a samurai her entire life. However, as the
daughter of the Emperor, training is impossible. When the Emperor is
assassinated, she is thrust onto a throne she never wanted. As
Empress, she must find a way to become a leader her people will look
up to, instead of a weak woman unfit for the throne. Her
generals are waiting for her to make a grave mistake. Falling in love
with her high general might very well be the mistake they were
waiting for.

Corruption
has touched worlds before, but this time, it will take more than a
few Chosen to stop it before it fills the hearts of everyone around
them – even the hearts of their closest friends and allies.

Hybrid
Magic

 

by

Genre:
YA Fantasy

 

 

Two
nations joined peacefully as one, but a band of assassins lurks in
the shadows.
 

 

Magic
isn’t uncommon in the Deravine Commonwealth, where people can be
gifted with the faculties of combat, healing, transformation, or
sight. Yet as a hybrid mage, Aaron Ztrong’s abilities aren’t so
easily categorized. He managed to save his parents during a dangerous
confrontation when he was only a young boy, and now a decade later
most people in his life expect him to do remarkable things with his
powers. Then there are those who fear what Aaron and others like him
can do. When Aaron’s life is threatened by a group calling
themselves the Defenders, he takes refuge with two other hybrid mages
and the teacher who is training them to enhance their abilities. As
the Defenders continue to hunt down hybrid mages, Aaron and his new
companions must find a way to survive.

Welcome
to Willow Creek Ranch. Owner and proprietor Katherine Ryan has
everything she wants in life-almost. The single mom of two works hard
to provide for her children on their Wyoming ranch. She values
coffee, books, and her children above all others (not necessarily in
that order). Her passion for healing, though, has led her down the
path of rehabilitating racehorses and developing a therapeutic riding
program for kids. The persistent thorn in her side, however, is that
for the last five years her ex-husband, Ethan, has still worked and
lived on the property with her.

 

With
a sister who’s a famous Hollywood actress and a business deal that
pulls her down to LA, she’s talked into a party where she runs into a
man she’s known for most of her life, but has been relegated to a
memory. Fate has some strange cards to play after Katherine returns
to Wyoming and life on the ranch.

The wrong decisions could cost him his job, his safety—even his life. But letting Karina go could cost him his heart… 

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

 

Although Marina Myles lives under the sunny skies of Arizona, she would reside in a historic manor house in foggy England if she had her way. Her love of books began as soon as she read her first fairy tale, and grew by leaps and bounds when she discovered Nancy Drew/Agatha Christie mysteries and rich, historical romances.
Dreaming of becoming a published author, she wrote her first ‘gothic’ story at age eleven. She went on to study creative writing at Southern Methodist University- where she received degrees in Communications and English Literature. During her time in Dallas, she had the unique experience of being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader.
Now with her loyal Maltese close by, she relishes the hours she gets to escape into worlds filled with tortured heroes, strong heroines, and their fiery-but not easily attained-love affairs. She’s busy being a wife (to her Italian-born husband) and a mother (to her two beautiful daughters), but she is never too busy to hear from her amazing readers.

 

 

THE WEREWOLF’S SERVANT
 

 

Thorncliff Towers is done up for Christmas, secure against wind and wolves. But Karina Petri is shut out, too, and the gypsy witch wants what’s inside. She envies the gifts, the feast, the pretty clothes, of course. But her true desire is for the love of Constantin Stoica. Her smolderingly handsome childhood friend agreed to serve Lord Draven after his brother was caught stealing last year. He suspects Karina was involved—and it would take more magic than she possesses to make him forgive…
 
 
Constantin has always been drawn to Karina’s dark curls, flashing eyes, and reckless ways. But trusting her has proven dangerous before, and this night holds more to fear than most. The wrong decisions could cost him his job, his safety—even his life. But letting Karina go could cost him his heart… 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Snippet:

 

Like the gingerbread that beckoned Hansel and Gretel, the aroma of Christmas Eve supper had lured Karina to Thorncliff Towers one year ago. She vowed never to return, but she was willing to eat her words for handsome Constantin.

Lost
Time
Jason
Davey Mysteries Book 2
by
Winona Kent
Genre:
Mystery, Amateur Detective
 
In
1974, top UK band Figgis Green was riding high in the charts with
their blend of traditional Celtic ballads mixed with catchy, folky
pop. One of their biggest fans was sixteen-year old Pippa Gladstone,
who mysteriously vanished while she was on holiday with her parents
in Spain in March that same year.

 

 

 

Now
it’s 2018, and founding member Mandy Green has reunited the Figs for
their last-ever Lost Time Tour. Her partner, Tony Figgis, passed away
in 1995, so his place has been taken by their son, professional jazz
guitarist (and amateur sleuth) Jason Davey.

 

 

As
the band meets in a small village on the south coast of England for
pre-tour rehearsals, Jason’s approached by Duncan Stopher, a diehard
Figs fan, who brings him a photo of the band performing at the
Wiltshire Folk Festival. Standing in the foreground is Pippa
Gladstone. The only problem is the Wiltshire Folk Festival was held
in August 1974, five months after Pippa disappeared. Duncan offers
Jason a substantial sum of money to try and find out what really
happened to the young woman, whose mother had her declared officially
dead in 1981.

 

 

When
Duncan is murdered, it becomes increasingly clear to Jason that his
investigation into Pippa’s disappearance is not welcome, especially
after he follows a series of clues which lead him straight back to
the girl’s immediate family.

 

 

But
nothing can prepare Jason for the truth about Pippa, which he
discovers just as Figgis Green is about to take to the stage on
opening night—with or without him.

Notes
On a Missing G-String
Jason
Davey Mysteries Book 1 
 
“A
highly entertaining caper set in a sleazy London underworld…Jason
is a well-crafted reluctant hero, and Kent’s writing is slick and
engaging throughout.” – 
Kirkus
Reviews

 

 

 

The
first time we met Jason Davey, he was entertaining passengers aboard
the Alaska cruise ship Star
Sapphire,
Eight ‘til Late in the TopDeck Lounge.

 

 

Then
he came ashore, got a gig playing lead guitar at London’s Blue
Devil jazz club, and gained a certain amount of notoriety tracking
down missing musician Ben Quigley in the Canadian north.

 

 

Now
Jason’s back again, this time investigating the theft of £10,000
from a dancer’s locker at a Soho gentlemen’s club.

 

 

Jason
initially considers the case unsolvable. But the victim, Holly
Medford, owes a lot of money to London crime boss Arthur Braskey and,
fearing for her life, has gone into hiding at a posh London
hotel.

 

 

Jason’s
investigation takes him from Cha-Cha’s and Satin & Silk (two
Soho lapdancing clubs) to Moonlight Desires (an agency featuring high
class escorts) and finally to a charity firewalking event, where he
comes face to face with Braskey and discovers not everything Holly’s
been telling him is the complete truth.

 

 

As
he becomes increasingly drawn into the seamy underside of Soho, Jason
tries to save Gracie, his band-mate’s 14-year-old runaway daughter,
from Holly’s brother Radu, a ruthless pimp, while at the same time
protecting Holly herself from a vengeful Braskey—nearly losing his
life, and Gracie’s—in the process.

 

 

Notes
on a Missing G-String is
the first novel in a new mystery series featuring jazz
musican-turned-sleuth Jason Davey.

Now
Jason’s back on shore, and he has a regular gig at a jazz club in

Jason’s
son, Dominic, is studying film at university. When Dom asks his dad
to help track down a missing musician for a documentary he’s making,
Jason leaps at the chance.

 

 

Ben
Quigley played rhythm guitar in Jason’s parents’ folk group Figgis
Green in the late 1960s. And he dropped off the face of the earth
four years ago.

 

 

Jason’s
search ultimately takes him to Peace River, Alberta – 300 miles from
Edmonton in the Canadian north. And what he discovers there is both
intriguing – and disturbing.

Someone has to hunt down, and kill, the monster of Mermaid Cove. That someone is me

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

 

Dagana: The Last Mermaid
by Kody Boye
Genre: Fantasy Thriller
I have always loved the ocean. Beautiful and tranquil, it seems like it can do absolutely no harm.
Until the night my parents go missing, and then are subsequently found dead.
Both have been viciously mauled by something off the Gulf—something even the medical examiner claims is an ‘unknown animal.’ But the worst part? I swear I saw something in the water the night they were both killed.
But this is no chance occurrence. As the body count begins to rise, and as more tragedies unfold, I realize that something has to be done.
Someone has to hunt down, and kill, the monster of Mermaid Cove.
That someone is me.

Truth, like love, isn’t always obvious

Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

 

Between Wild and Ruin
by Jennifer G. Edelson
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Truth, like love, isn’t always obvious.
Seventeen-year-old Ruby Brooks has never had a boyfriend. After moving to small-town La Luna, New Mexico following her mother’s untimely death, boys aren’t even on her radar. Ruby just wants to forget the last horrible year and blend in. But when she discovers an ancient pueblo ruin in the forest behind her house, and meets Ezra, a bitter recluse whose once-perfect face was destroyed in an accident he won’t talk about; Angel, La Luna’s handsome sheriff’s deputy, and Leo, a stranger who only appears near the ruin, Ruby finds herself teetering between love, mystery, and other worlds. What happened to Ezra’s face? And why is she so attracted to the one boy in town everyone despises? As Ruby unravels her own connections to both Ezra and the pueblo ruin, she’ll learn surfaces are deceiving. Especially in the heart of New Mexico, where spirits and legends aren’t always just campfire stories.
Set against a Northern New Mexico backdrop, Between Wild and Ruin is a young adult coming of age story that captures the wild and whimsical pulse of New Mexico through the eyes of teens Ruby Brooks, Angel Ruiz, and Ezra Lucero. The first book in the Wild and Ruin series, Between Wild and Ruin explores the time-tested credo ‘never judge a book by its cover’ through a paranormal lens, weaving Puebloan and Hispanic folklore and Southwest cultural narratives into tightly written, high-concept fiction ‘brimming with mystery, intrigue,’ and as Kirkus Reviews puts it, an “intriguing historical drama and an over-the top quadrangle romance.”

Daughter of the Sun
Cult of the Cat Book 1
by Zoe Kalo
Genre: YA Contemporary Mythological Fantasy
EGYPTOLOGY. MAGIC. MYSTERY. AND CATS, LOTS OF CATS…
Sixteen-year-old Trinity was born during a solar eclipse and left at the doorsteps of a convent along with a torn piece of papyrus covered with ancient symbols. Raised by nuns in the English countryside, she leads a quiet life until she’s whisked away to the Island of Cats and a grandmother she never knew.
But before they can get to know each other, her grandmother dies. All that Trinity has left is a mysterious eye-shaped ring. And a thousand grieving cats. As Trinity tries to solve the enigma of the torn papyrus, she discovers a world of bloody sacrifices and evil curses, and a prophecy that points to her and her new feline abilities.
Unwilling to believe that any of the Egyptian gods could still be alive, Trinity turns to eighteen-year-old Seth and is instantly pulled into a vortex of sensations that forces her to confront her true self—and a horrifying destiny.

Once the house settled down for the night, Mrs. Murray, the resident ghost, was out on her nocturnal prowl

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019
An avid gardener, artist, musician and writer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has fond memories and lots of stories that evolved from a childhood growing up in a haunted Victorian mansion. 


Told she had a ‘vivid imagination’, the author used this talent to create stories in her head to pass tedious hours while sick, waiting in a doctor’s office, listening to a teacher drone on about something she already knew, or enduring the long, stuffy family car rides. The author lived her stories in her head, allowing her imagination to lead her into a different world, one of her own making. As the author grew up, these stories, imaginings and fantasies took to the written form and, over the years, she developed a reputation for telling a good story. 


Emily-Jane can now boast that she is an award-winning author of several books, including King Henry’s Choice (Clean Reads 2019), Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (Telltale Publishing 2018), Mrs. Murray’s Hidden Treasure (Telltale Publishing 2019), Queen Mary’s Daughter (Clean Reads 2018), Gerlinda (CFA 2016) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, To Be a Duke (CFA 2014) which was named Finalist and Silver Medalist in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards and several other books. 


A retired teacher of music and creative writing, she writes about the extra-ordinary in life and her books, short stories, and articles are receiving considerable attention. For more information on the author, check out her website at: http://emilyjanebooks.ca

There is a hidden treasure in the grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest. 

 
 
Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies from searching for this treasure. 
 
 

Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected to this treasure. And so the adventure begins. Who will find the treasure first?

Snippet:
Once the house
settled down for the night, Mrs. Murray, the resident ghost, was out on her
nocturnal prowl. Satisfied that the house was safe and secure for the night,
after all the musical vibrations that shook the rafters earlier, she took her
place at the end of Mary’s bed and waited patiently for the girl to stir from
her sleep and take note of her presence.
            “What?”
Mary groaned, pulling her eyes open as she emerged from a deep sleep. “What
now?”
            “We
need to talk.” The wispy figure of what was once a very distinguished looking
lady, sat down at the end of Mary’s bed and looked the girl firmly in the eye.
            “Now?”
Mary groaned. “It’s the middle of the night. What time is it?”
            “What
difference does it make? Sit up and let’s talk.” The ghost was not going to
take ‘no’ for an answer. And, it would appear, feigning sleep would not send
her away either. So, Mary pushed herself into a sitting position and rubbed her
eyes again, hoping to eradicate the sleep that threatened to make them close.
            “Where
are the others? Where’s Brunny?” she asked.
            “Asleep
in their little space. And it’s not a natural sleep either. They’re all in the
deepest of sleeps, all except Elizabeth, who slipped out of the house a few
hours ago, just after the lights went out and your family snuggled in for the
night.” Mrs. Murray slid a little closer to Mary. “She’s still not right, that
Elizabeth. She’s good and well shackled by that witch.”

Athina
Paris lives in South Africa but spent her formative years in
Mozambique, where she was born and went to school. Years in convents
and boarding schools prompted a deep curiosity and the need to
liberate her mind, which quickly developed into an avid interest in
reading and storytelling and led to a lifelong obsession with the
written word and books. By fifteen she had read most of the classics,
discovered ancient civilizations and became fascinated with various
mythologies; a love she has kept to this day.

 

 

Raised
in a culture where meddling is seen as ‘caring’, she became a
spectator of human nature. Quiet and shy, she preferred recording
conduct rather than participating in what she calls familial mass
hysteria, and so built a treasure-trove of relationship observations
from which she eventually drew backgrounds for the characters in her
romantic novels.

 

She
studied Interior Design, but soon felt the pull of her dormant talent
and turned to Creative Writing, as she realised the significance of
those notebooks packed with ideas. She soon followed it with
Scriptwriting.

 

 

Set
in faraway and exotic places, Athina’s epic romantic work takes her
characters on voyages of self-discovery while dealing with
catastrophic love lives and an imperfect world.

 

A
stint as a high school English teacher polished her skills. However,
she has recently vacated the position to concentrate on her
professional goals of writing, editing and proofreading.
