Born Of Oak And Silver

by Marie McKean

YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE LIFE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN.

All that you can do is make the most of what you’ve been dealt—fight a good fight, resist being beaten by circumstance, and hope that somehow, despite it all, you’re able to accomplish the impossible.

But even then you cannot change the fact that you were born cursed.

I am one of those unlucky few upon whom the Curse of the Four Fathers has fallen.

It is I who must bear the burden of having a life that is unchangeably intertwined with the Fae. A sorrow made all the more great by knowing that where they are tragedy, loss, misery, and despair most assuredly follow.

As a Druid it is my responsibility to uphold the boundaries that keep the worlds of the Tylwyth Teg, and our own, separate. As a man it is my only ambition to protect the family and woman I so desperately love.

The only problem: I’m not sure this curse will allow for me to do both.

Treasure Me

by Christine Nolfi

Petty thief Birdie Kaminsky has arrived in Liberty, Ohio to steal a treasure hidden since the Civil War. She’s in possession of a charming clue passed down in her family for generations: Liberty safeguards the cherished heart.

The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue’s author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie’s ancestor.

If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can’t help but wonder if she’s found one—Liberty’s feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn’t know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up—as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it’s possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine.

The Fizgig

by Jill Cox Vogt

Poet Daisy Young believes that when life hands you lemons, eat chocolate and get on with it, but no amount of Whitman Samplers gets her mind off her drowned fiancé – until she flees from Nashville to a small town in East Tennessee’s mountains and becomes best friends with Luke Strann.

The last thing she’s looking for is love, and certainly not with Luke, who’s as opposite from Brody as Fleetwood Mac is from Prince. Still, he’s a poet, and she’s been itching to know someone who’ll read her poetry. When their physical attraction can’t be denied, their relationship transforms into a “no promises, no demands” love affair.

It’s easy for Daisy to accept. After all, memories of her fiancé rule her heart, and according to Luke’s Elvis-loving, Harley-riding friend, Raleigh, Luke has a back door woman named Allison. But the more fun she has with Luke—hiking mountains, shooting fireworks, meeting a mysterious, prophetic woman in a red satin dress—the more frustrated she is with their uncertain future.

She calls it quits. Her year-long lease is up. Should she give up hope and return to her family in Nashville?

Then a near-fatal accident brings about the truth of Luke’s attraction to Allison, and Daisy must make the decision of her life.

Thimblerig’s Ark

by Nate Fleming

You already know about Noah. Just wait until you read the animal’s story.

Thimblerig is a little groundhog with big problems.

He’s a loner con-artist who’s losing his mojo; the wild dogs who run the forest harass him at every turn; he’s having vivid nightmares of apocalyptic floods; and worst of all, he believes he sees unicorns when everyone knows unicorns are only the stuff of legend.

But what one animal might call a problem, Thimblerig calls an opportunity.

In a moment of inspiration, he comes up with the ultimate con: persuade as many suckers as he can that a world-ending flood is coming; the fabled unicorns have told him where the only safe place will be; and only he can lead them to safety.

All for a reasonable price, of course.

When the flood really does come, Thimblerig has a choice: either save the ones who trusted him, or lose everything.

And that’s when he discovers that his problems have only just begun.
