Sworn To Raise

Seventeen-year-old Ciardis has grown up in poverty, a cleaner in a small vale on the outskirts of the empire. But beneath her empire’s seemingly idyllic surface lies a hidden secret. Whispers of an inept crown Prince are growing ever louder–intensified by the five year anniversary of the soulbond initiations.

Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to train for the Companions Guild. She leaves her home and sets off on a personal journey to become a Court Companion. A position she’d never thought possible for a lowly servant to obtain, she must prove that she has the skills to attract a Patron.

But she must master those skills quickly. If the legends are true, only Ciardis can harness the power to raise a Prince in an Imperial Court sworn to bring him down.

Sworn To Transfer

Eighteen-year-old companion trainee Ciardis Weathervane has won the friendship of the royal heir and saved his claim to the throne. Yet her interference in the inheritance rights leaves more harm done than good. The Ameles Forest lies unprotected and it’s inhabitants are dying.

As humans begin to die in gruesome deaths, the Emperor dispatches the royal heir to the forests with the solution to the kith concerns.

With enemies closing ranks in Sandrin, Ciardis can little afford to leave the city’s nest of vipers to take on a new task. But she’s given no choice when her loyalty to the crown and courts are called into question.

To keep the Companions’ Guild happy and the favor of the Imperial Court, Ciardis will be tested in frightening new ways, especially when she’s faced with an obstacle that could risk the lives of her friends and the family she never thought she had.

Sworn To Conflict

Ciardis Weathervane fought for the living dead and won. But worse than taking on a mass murderer, was her discovery that she had been deceived by her friends. Now she needs to not only fight a war in the North and survive, but also decide where she stands in the midst of competing sides.

A threat to all she holds dear lies in the North and her heart is not the only thing she might lose. A massive army awaits in the mountain pass, surging closer to the gates of the southern lands. Nothing the Algardis army has done so far has dissuaded their march forward and Ciardis finds out that her powers to enhance are needed now more than ever.

As she faces her greatest fears on the battlefields and her heart is torn between her love of Sebastian and loyalty to her family, Ciardis must choose her fate carefully. For in her path, lies the destiny of the empire.

Wolf Spell

by M.R. Polish

Flirting with boys and hanging out with her best friend pretty much sums up Esmerelda’s life, but it’s all about to change. At eighteen, the toughest decision she should have to make is whether or not to go to college, not helping her dad pick out a casket for her mother. But, it’s not until wounds heal instantly and flowers bloom in front of her eyes that she begins to question her sanity.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing, could prepare her for being kidnapped and flown out of the country, only to find out her kidnapper is a warlock. Sanity? At this point she is sure either hers or his is gone. Magic isn’t real, it’s in stories and fairy tales parents tell little kids. Or is it? But there’s more, much more… her blood is the secret gift bestowed by five dead witches and there is one warlock who’ll stop at nothing to get it. To end the curse to his power and save herself, she must awaken the witches from their graves. Shouldn’t be hard, right?

With life as Esmerelda knew it officially over, it isn’t until she meets Ian that she starts to feel normal again. He’s all the eye candy plus a Guardian wrapped up in one hot package. But, the feelings she has for him aren’t welcome because they make her forget the danger she’s in. And forgetting could mean her death.

For his wife’s sake, Sara boldly tells Adam that he is killing Abby with so many babies so close, but Abby is already dead.

Adam did not call Sara to tend the birth, but to give her his children. Though Sara knows Abby’s girls belong with their father, how can she leave them with a man who seems not to care for them? As much as she loves and wants the girls, she decides that she will only take them long enough to teach Adam to love them.

As a child Adam heard the words, “I do this because I love you,” with his father’s every abuse. Adam is afraid to love his children, afraid that in doing so, he will hurt them. Without Abby to protect them, Adam must find someone else, and he can think of only one woman strong and brave enough, Spinster Sara Lapp.

Moonless

by Crystal Collier

In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially later when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.

Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they’re echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights.

Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.

We Are Savages

by Jessie Atkin

We Are Savages is the story of 12 year old Tris and what she finds when she runs from the responsibility of her household and descends through a rain grate into the child run world of Nowhere. “You go to bed angry or sad enough you can wake up just about anywhere,” the Savages tell her. Nowhere is a brick utopia hidden in the sewers; made up of sweets, sports, hammocks, and fireflies. But even this haven, free of parents and protocol, is not everything it seems. Haunted by dark specters known only as Phocydes, feared for their reputation of consuming children whole, Tris works both to hunt and to hide from these hooded shadows. But something about them is familiar; something about them fires her curiosity more than her fear. And Tris slowly begins to realize that, no matter where you go, fear and responsibility are not things you can escape. The only thing to do is face them.

Trail Of Thread: A Woman’s Westward Journey

by Linda Hubalek

Taste the dust of the road and feel the wind in your face as you travel with a Kentucky family by wagon train to the new territory of Kansas in 1854.

Find out what it was like for the thousands of families who made the cross-country journey into the unknown.

In this first book of the Trail of Thread series; in the form of letters she wrote on the journey, Deborah Pieratt describes the scenery, the everyday events on the trail, and the task of taking care of her family. Stories of humor and despair, along with her ongoing remarks about camping, cooking, and quilting on the wagon trail make you feel as if you pulled up stakes and are traveling with the Pieratt’s, too.

But hints of the brewing trouble ahead plagued them along the way as people questions their motive for settling in the new territory. If they are from the South, why don’t they have slaves with them? Would the Pieratt’s vote for or against legal slavery in the new state? Though Deborah does not realize it, her letters show how this trip affected her family for generations to come.

This series is based on author Linda K. Hubalek’s ancestors that traveled from Kentucky to Kansas in 1854. Twelve old quilt patterns are mentioned in the letters, and the sketched designs are in the back of the book for reference.

An Unlikely Hero

by P.F. Ford

Living in a cozy, small town, tucked away in the south of England, unremarkable average guy Alfie Bowman has been heard to describe himself as a refugee from a failed life. In his own words he’s ordinary looking, starting to lose his hair, a little bit shorter than average, a little bit heavier than he should be, and a lot less fit than he really ought to be. Most definitely an unlikely hero!

At the ripe old age of 50, he’s escaped an unhappy marriage and just wants to re-start his life, relax and have some fun, and maybe do some writing – if only he could find something to write about!

So when he stops in the pub for a couple of pints on the way home one night, the last thing he expects to have to do is save a stunning young woman half his age from a fracas with an enormous thug with huge fists! But that’s exactly what he does do, because, as far as Alfie’s concerned, there are some things you can’t just stand by and ignore.

Waking up in hospital later that night he wonders if maybe getting involved hadn’t been the best decision he’d ever made after all! But he soon learns that the beating he’d been given had nothing to do with events in the pub…

So who beat him up, and why? Who is the stunning young woman and what’s she doing in town?

Join unlikely hero Alfie Bowman as he turns amateur sleuth to answer these two questions, ably assisted by friends Positive Pete and Dry Biro. Find out how he outwits abrasive ex-wife Gloria, share a close encounter with local gangster Nugent the Nutter, and see how this ‘refugee from a failed life’ manages to deal with the beautiful young woman who sweeps into his life.

And if that’s not enough, there’s his attraction to gorgeous and mysterious neighbour Sophia. After a disastrous marriage he believes women are a mystery he’ll never quite understand – and anyway, he just knows that if he ever does get the girl she’s going to end up being disappointed! So, much as he would like to get to know the seemingly aloof and mysterious Sophia, he’s also having to deal with his own fear of getting involved. It’s a seesaw of confidence, but will it ever develop into a serious romance?
