Kinds of Us

 

Love
in Fenton County Book 5

 

by
Sarah Sutton

 

Genre:
YA Romance

 

 

DIAMONDS
MEET ROCK ‘N ROLL AND SECRETS MEET THEIR END.
 

 

In a life of
diamond bracelets and country clubs, I’m the perfect daughter. I
get all the right grades, volunteer at all the right organizations,
apply to all the right colleges.

 

And I hate every second of
it. At the rate my life is playing out, under the strict rule of my
parents, politicians and housewives will be my future.

 

Until I
meet Harry.

 

Harry’s a singer in a rock band with a voice so
beautiful that I actually feel hypnotized. Doesn’t hurt that he’s
hot either, and with the kind, flirty personality to match, it’s
the perfect trifecta. And even better, he sees the me I want to be.
He sees me as the girl who can break free of the life she’s trapped
in, who can control her own future.

 

The only problem? He knows
me as Stella, my fun, carefree alter ego—so drastically different
from Destelle, the girl who is trapped in the life her parents
rule.

 

But as we get closer, I realize Harry’s keeping a
secret of his own, something related to the dark past that he’s
trying to move on from, and when I find out, everything we’ve built
could come crashing down.

 

This
is the fifth book in the Love in Fenton County Series, but can be

Dark Mirror Image

 

 

King Keban’s gaze upon Princess Arianne will be punishable by death. However, her brother, the king, gave him another option—Now he will return home with the princess as his wife. He wonders at the turn of events, but only for a small moment. After staying there for a night filled with hair-curling cries and dreadful noises coming from her brother’s chamber, he could never leave her in that place…not even for his kingdom.

https://storyoriginapp.com/to/rzmL2xc

Once Upon Two Kingdoms

 

An arrangement made when Elizabeth was just a babe ties her to someone she has never met, never spoken to, never loved. Now old enough to choose, she desires freedom—a way to choose her own path—her own husband. The moment Elizabeth meets Patrick she knows he is her soul mate. But when you are bound to a crown how is any choice your own?

https://storyoriginapp.com/to/rzmL2xc

Her Prince Charming

 

 

A future worth rescuing, a love worth waiting for, and a dream worth sharing

Danger lurks in the court as Stanislav the high chancellor, seizes an opportunity to take the crown and the princess for himself. Caught between duty and freedom, Princess Alexandra has to choose to be free to find a happy ever after or marry Stanislav as he demands and let him take the crown from her. When Prince Christoffer offers a solution by marrying her…wouldn’t that mean another marriage without love? However, if she accepts his proposal, she will sentence him to death.

A Princess in Disguise

 

 

To save her love she must remain hidden…to save her kingdom she must reveal herself

Oleah has learned from books since infancy and swears she has a library instead of a brain. Why a farmer’s daughter needs all this learning escapes her, until fate sets her on a collision course with Anitolia’s plan to obtain absolute power. Anitolia is ruthless, so Oleah fears for Stephan who loves her unconditionally. Stephan has suffered much under Anitolia’s obsession. However, it will be Oleah who breaks his heart if she is forced to marry Anitolia’s son.

Kingdom by the Sea

 

 

A secret passageway conceals more than spider webs.

The common belief in two kingdoms is that Serena, the Princess of Delmar, wants slaves. Even her fiancé loses his love for her, in commiseration with the islanders captured in her name. When she discovers his betrayal with a slave girl, it could be the end for Linah and all the slaves held prisoner in Delmar. After all, a powerful yet brokenhearted princess could become a weapon too deadly for her opponents to survive.

Raven
Daughter Book 3

 

by
A.D. Trosper

 

Genre:
YA Paranormal Fantasy Romance

 

 

This
is the third and final book in the Raven Daughter series.
 

 

I’m
fully bound to Caius and I don’t regret it. I carry more than his
blood within me and I don’t regret that either.
 

 

Although
we found safety, we can’t hide because souls aren’t the only thing
at stake anymore and time is running out as we race toward the dagger
and whatever future comes after.
 

 

The
veils themselves are weakening. Everyone knows my secret. Old wounds
are forcing me to stop and face them. And now, I have more to fight
for than the Lost. I’ve never had so much lose.

Betrayed

 

Raven
Daughter Book 2

 

 

I
was never supposed to go to the Between. I was never supposed to fall
in love with Caius. And yet, I’ve done both. Since stepping through
that portal, I’ve done a lot of things I never thought I
would.

 

Like
coming face-to-face with a god. Or encountering the one person in all
the worlds I didn’t want to meet. Or having a fairy floor me with
just a few words and realizing things are a lot more complicated than
just stopping the Lost.
 

 

Everything
is changing, secrets are revealed, and something that shouldn’t
even be possible has become reality. I never imagined any of this
could happen. My imagination was clearly lacking.

Raven
Daughter Book 1

 

 

***Raven
Daughter is a completed series of three books.
 

 

I’m
Jo and the death of my mother revealed a whole lot of secrets she was
keeping. Like the fact that my sperm-donor father was a freaking
angel who couldn’t keep it in his pants and slept with a woman he
should never have been with. Or the fact I’m not mortal and would
one day be a reaper of souls.
 

 

Reaping
souls, now there is something I never dreamed I would do, but here I
am doing just that. Or at least I was, until souls started becoming
Lost. And that’s when things went south.
 

 

When
I stupidly agreed to help discover what was causing the Lost without
reading the fine print first. Now a lot of immortals would like to
see me dead because of what I might become. To top it off, I ended up
blood bound to a powerful half-demon who is supposed to be a reaper’s
sworn enemy. Funny thing is he may be the only one I can
trust.
 

 

Warning:
Although this series deals with angels and demons, there is nothing
religious about them. Anyone looking for that within the pages of
these books will be disappointed.

Not even the promise of eternal love is enough to make Chloe risk Trent’s life

Eternal
Curse

 

The
Cursed Series Book 1

 

by
Kara Leigh Miller

 

Genre:
YA Paranormal Romance

 

 

After
pulling the plug on her mother’s life support, seventeen-year-old
Chloe Madison moves to live with relatives she hardly knows. Her new
hometown in the Adirondack Mountains is barely more than a pinpoint
on the map, but it’s shrouded in deadly secrets and strange family
legends. Chloe is determined to keep her head down, finish high
school, and get the heck out of there. Until she meets the enigmatic
Trent Halstead. Something intriguing hides beneath his quiet
self-assurance and hero hair. Maybe there’s something—or
someone—worth sticking around for after all.
 

 

But
when a rash of unsolved murders leaves two of Chloe’s classmates
dead, she begins to suffer from disturbing hallucinations that build
to the horrifying image of Trent as a murderous vampire. With nowhere
else to go, she’s stuck in a town she hates, surrounded by people
she can’t trust, and she’s pretty sure she’s going to be
lunch.
 

 

If
all that isn’t bad enough, Trent is hiding a lethal secret, besides
the whole immortal bloodsucker thing. He’s the not-so-proud owner
of an ancient, family curse—no Halstead will ever know true
love—and he’s desperate to find a way to break the curse. Could
Chloe be the key to his happiness or just another secret Trent wished
he never unlocked?

Choice

 

The
Cursed Series Book 2

 

 

Forced
to move to California with her father, the same man who abandoned her
ten years ago, Chloe is once again starting over. Only this time, she
has a perky new stepmom and an annoying baby brother. To make matters
worse, the sea of snobby rich kids at her new prep school pretend
she’s invisible. As if all that wasn’t bad enough, she has this
gnawing sensation that she’s forgetting something important.
 

 

And
then Trent Halstead crashes back into her life, bringing with him
everything she’s forgotten and the devastating news that there’s a
coven of witches after her, and no one knows why—until Chloe
discovers the answer in a box of old family photos. Now, she’s
keeping a secret that could save Trent’s life. There’s just one
problem: his salvation will come at a cost. Her destruction. And
that’s a price she’s not sure she’s willing to pay.

Chloe
is in a fight for her life. Literally. Held prisoner by the Rose
Coven, they are desperate for her to break the curse and restore the
magical balance, but Chloe adamantly refuses—until a nearly starved
Jax Halstead is tossed in the room with her. Now, hanging on to her
humanity might be next to impossible.
 

 

When
one act of mercy creates an unbreakable bond that threatens to
destroy everything she’s ever wanted, getting away alive—and
still human—is more important than ever.
 

 

Once
freed, her love and devotion to Trent is at war with the bond she
shares with Jax, a bond that’s only growing more intense by the
day. And now she must decide which is stronger. All while navigating
her senior year of high school, college applications, and waiting for
the Rose Coven to return. If that isn’t bad enough, Isach Zoya is
back. He knows the truth, and he’s watching her every move. What
else could possibly go wrong?

As
if having an unbreakable bond with Jax isn’t hard enough, Chloe’s
now forced to work with him on a major school project, and the more
time they spend together, the stronger the bond becomes. 
 
Fighting it
will most certainly drive her mad. But if she ever wants to have a
future with Trent, she has no choice but to resist. Unfortunately,
any hope she has of ever becoming a vampire and spending an eternity
with Trent hangs on breaking the bond, which is an impossible
feat.
 

 

Until
an unlikely source offers them a solution to their problem. There’s
just one catch—in order to fully break the bond, Trent’s immortal
life will be linked to her mortal one. And with two of the most
powerful covens in the world hellbent on killing her, the decision is
a no-brainer. Not even the promise of eternal love is enough to make
Chloe risk Trent’s life.

The
Five Elements Book 1

 

by
Nicole Wells

 

Genre:
New Adult Urban Fantasy Romance

 

 

Can
they find themselves and each other before time runs out?
 

 

Get ready for an award winning story that reached Amazon’s top 500 for all e-books (over 2 million), now fully revised!
Can they find themselves and each other before time runs out?
Enya’s dreams of making a difference in the world are devastated the summer after high school when she finds out she has a fatal disease.
A cross country road trip to Native American reservations helps her find meaning. But Jacob, her best friend and traveling companion, has longed for them to become something more.
Their expedition is just the start of an amazing love and spiritual journey, but a one-in-a-million phenomenon changes everything.
“I get the feeling like I’m reading Fault In Our Stars Part 2.”
Winner of the Readers’ Favorite 5 Star Award
… In the captivating novel, UpSpark, written by Nicole Wells, many essential themes – such as acceptance, forgiveness, trust, and love – are fully explored.
This story has many exceptional aspects … The author’s ability to interweave these various themes into one engaging, fascinating story is truly amazing. She develops the main characters in likable and relatable ways, and each one imparts important lessons. The last chapters are unexpected and memorable. Author Nicole Wells notes the novel, UpSpark, is Book One of the Five Elements Series. Everyone who reads this gem of a book will certainly anticipate the second one!    –   Deborah Lloyd  for Readers’ Favorite
Let me start by taking a moment to revel in the beauty of the name of this story, you won’t get it right away, I didn’t either, but reading this story, a story of absolutely everything. I’m at a loss for words.
The story follows Enya (another incredibly beautiful name) and her life, a life marked by everything extraordinary. What starts out as heartbreaking news to an experience of a lifetime (literally), this story covers it all. The author Nicole Wells has portrayed a picture almost too good and too pure to be true, and she is right, such hope, that too, set in a post-quarantine world is all you could wish for.
As unrealistic as it seems for an 18 year old Jacob to have such deep understanding of life and of love, Ms. Wells’ writing makes it very believable and very desirable too. It is a love story of the dreams and stars.
The story in itself is complex, and that is expected, nothing of this caliber could be any less; but the very understanding the author has put into the life of her characters brings them to you in a very real sense. […]
Read this book, it is intense. But you need to, it will give you pain, and it will give you hope.   – Oviya Nila Muralidharan, Book Blogger
Enya is 18 when she discovers she has Huntingtons, the same disease that devastated her father. Grieving the diagnosis, she impulsively goes on a road trip with her friends, and during the trip, she begins to have striking visions. These visions lead her on a journey she could never anticipate.
I was surprised to love this book like I did. Firstly, the representation of often overlooked characters was excellent. … the author wrote extensively about Native American communities and beliefs with such tenderness and beauty.
I resonated with the spirituality of this book and was inspired by it as well … Enya works through these and many other spiritual components without the writing becoming boring or heavy.
I always surrender to books, without trying to jump ahead or analyze them, but still, many books are written with a much-used formula you can see a mile away. In “Upspark” the author made several (big) unpredictable choices, which surprised me.
… She clearly knew Enya inside and out, and loved her characters, which made it a compelling read. I would highly recommend this book! – Bookstagram.reviews
UpSpark is a new inspirational fiction novel geared toward young adults or anyone looking to develop a sunnier outlook. … The story spans years of her unique life and details her lows and her highs. The inspiration comes as Enya comes to terms with the hand she’s been dealt. With the help of some supportive friends, she gains perspective. With that perspective, she also gains an extraordinary gift. This gift, as much as the Huntington’s, dramatically changes the course of Enya’s life.Enya is not your typical superhero. Her ability to see visions is pretty low-key. She doesn’t want a flashy life or fame, and her modesty is charming. … This highly introspective novel will cause you to take a step back and look at what’s really important. Via some complex characters with their own unique set of obstacles, Nicole Wells has crafted an inclusive novel that deals with some hard-hitting issues. The sensitivity is obvious, exploring the raw emotions surrounding coming out in a religiously devout family, and in dealing with the process of Native Americans being adopted into non-Native families. UpSpark is an elegant character-driven drama that will make you sob and smile, but mostly it will instill a sense of gratitude for whatever time we have. – Amanda Murello for Indies Today

Will her bitterness and secrets push everyone she loves away?

If
the Broom Fits

 

by
Sarah Sutton

 

Genre:
YA Contemporary Romance

 

 

Halloween
really is the worst.
 

 

Blaire’s
got to be the only person on the planet who hates Halloween. At least
the only person in her small town, which practically worships the
holiday. Ugh. And it doesn’t help that her super-hot ex-boyfriend,
Lucas, is determined to convince her otherwise by making her take
part in “festive activities.” Apparently carving pumpkins and
watching scary movies is going to magically change her mind about the
holiday? Yeah, right.
 

 

But
Blaire has never told anyone the truth of why she hates Halloween or
the truth about why she broke up with Lucas. She’s definitely never
told anyone about how much she second-guesses that decision. Being
around him is so much harder than she thought, especially when it
looks like he’s starting to move on.
 

 

And
when she gets a letter in the mail from someone who broke her heart,
can Blaire overcome the negativity drowning her? Or will her
bitterness and secrets push everyone she loves away?

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY

Absent Shadows Trilogy: Destiny, Sacrifice & Deception

This YA paranormal romance trilogy takes place (predominantly) in Melbourne, Australia but also in the San Francisco Bay Area. The story is completely fictional; however the Melbourne settings are real locations which are some of the oldest parts of Melbourne, namely the Queen Victoria Market and the Flagstaff Gardens.

 

I’d like to share with you a bit of the history of this part of Melbourne so you will understand what inspired me to write this story about ghosts and vampires set in this area.

 

~~***~~

 

A few years ago, I was working in Melbourne around the corner from the Queen Victoria Market, which is not far from the Flagstaff Gardens. One day while out walking at lunchtime, I started sensing that the area was the perfect setting for a story about ghosts and vampires. There had been a strong resurgence in the popularity of vampires and ghosts, and I’d always been keenly interested in both. In fact, I’d done a late night ghost tour through the area just a few years earlier. It was on this ghost tour that I first learned the history of the cemetery under the market’s carpark.

When I set out to write the story, I decided to do a bit of research on the area. Of course I headed straight to Google and WIKIPEDIA. I read numerous accounts of the market and the gardens, and although not everything I read was consistent, it seemed the general consensus was that the area we now call the Flagstaff Gardens was originally referred to as Burial Hill and was the site of Melbourne’s first burials.

 

As Melbourne grew, the Melbourne Cemetery was built in the area that is now the Queen Victoria Market. This cemetery was used from 1837 until the early 1850’s. Then, in the early 1850’s, what is now referred to as the Melbourne General Cemetery was built.

In the early 1900’s there were plans to expand the Queen Victoria Market, so a number of bodies (approximately 900) were exhumed from the Old Melbourne Cemetery and relocated to other cemeteries. However poor records, deterioration of headstones and numerous other factors prevented the remaining bodies from being exhumed.

To this day, there is no doubt that a large number of bodies remain under the market carpark, but the exact number seems somewhat debatable. Some accounts suggested that there were originally over 10,000 bodies in the Old Melbourne Cemetery. However, another report suggests that due to a fire in 1864 which destroyed early records, the 10,000 bodies cannot be verified. So the question remains; are 9,000+ bodies still there today? Or is it a lesser number?

Regardless of the exact number, there is no argument that not all the bodies were exhumed. Therefore, when you walk across the carpark, you are walking over the top of thousands of bodies that reside as little as six feet below.

Now, with the Melbourne City Council in the midst of massive redevelopment plans for the area, the controversy lives on.

You can read all about the history by simply Googling “Old Melbourne Cemetery”. It makes for some very interesting reading, indeed.
