Insurrection

Dark Desires Origins Book 3

by Nina Croft

Genre: SciFi Romance

Malpheas is one of the most powerful demons from Earth, but when he wakes up from cryo on the other side of the galaxy, he notices something is wrong—he’s human. Oh, hell no. In order to get his powers back, he must remove the sigil on his arm by carrying out three good deeds. But acts of kindness aren’t exactly his strong suit. Working undercover as a security officer investigating a suspicious death, he’s assigned to work with Hope, the most softhearted woman he’s ever met. If she can’t teach him how to be good, no one can.

Hope is in a pot of trouble, and if anyone finds out what she did, that pot would quickly boil over. She just needs to lay low until she can figure out a way to fix this mess. But when she’s ordered to show Mal the ropes and introduce him to everyone, sorting out her problems becomes impossible. Mal is sexy as sin, broody as hell, and believes she can help him change his bad-boy ways. Fine. If that keeps him from discovering her ties to the rebellion, she’ll teach him how to be a perfect angel.

As they work together, though, it becomes clear that Hope isn’t the only one with a hidden agenda, and their irresistible attraction to each other just adds fuel to the fire. When secrets are exposed, they must make the impossible choice between doing what’s right and doing what’s necessary.

Light meets dark, good meets evil…and love can hurt like Hell.

Wading through the morass of Michelle’s life in order to find out the truth while also handling Council politics and issues proves to be more complicated than Kate could ever have anticipated.

Going Coastal

Kate Matthews Mystery Series Book 1


A client dying on her massage table is traumatic enough for Kate Matthews, but when the police declare that death a homicide, her life is upended as she is cast as the major suspect.


None of this is what Kate expected from her move to the peaceful, beach town of Santa Barbara, California. After a near-fatal heart attack, an early retirement from her Los Angeles law firm, and a change in careers, Kate envisioned a quiet life with her wife, Alicia, and their grown children.


Since her client, Celia Tucker, held a politically-influential position on the California Coastal Commission, the murder becomes a media event. Kate finds herself and her family sucked into the maelstrom. The former lawyer has all she can do to find the truth behind Celia’s death without adding her own name to the body count.

Jane DiLucchio is a late bloomer when it comes to writing.

She spent many years as a teacher (first elementary school and later at the community college level), massage therapist, and backyard farmer before giving in to the little voices that kept sounding off in her head.

Since there’s a thin line between a psychotic and a writer (psychotics try to convince everyone that the voices they hear are real; writers write it down and tell everyone its fiction), Jane finally decided to give in to the voices rather than undergo intensive psychotherapy.

Jane and her wife are raising their two cats in a loving home in Southern California. (Actually, the cats allow Jane and Sue to live with them in return for certain personal services, but that’s another story entirely.) Jane continues to raise crops, travel, write, and spend time with her friends and family – all activities she loves.

A Shiver of Shadows

The Hell Gate Series Book 2

by Hunter J. Skye

There's more to the darkness hiding in the reclusive, mountaintop country of Andorra than just garden variety evil. There's something dangerously wrong with her beautiful immortal hosts too.
Gifted with flesh again by the Grace of God, three-hundred-year-old former ghost, Colonel William Grayford, will move heaven and earth to find his beloved. But Europe's most wicked monsters stand in his way. Something more painful than death awaits Mel, if Grayford can't find her in time.

Witch in the Woods Witches of Grimm Prequel by C.M. Adler Genre: Dark Fantasy

 

 


Witch in the Woods

Witches of Grimm Prequel

by C.M. Adler

Genre: Dark Fantasy 


"Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived near an enchanted forest with her sister and her father. One day, while her father was gone selling firewood to the neighboring villages, her sister fell ill. Out of desperation, the young girl ventured into the forest for help and there she found a woman who gave her everything her soul desired...

Ambrosine lives next to an enchanted wood, which is no big deal when you know how to spot a magic hoax nest and trap nasty little night fairies. 

And certainly no big deal when there is not even a witch in the woods.

When her little sister Rosaline encounters a strange new creature, she falls asleep and a dangerous fever dream threatens her life. With their mother dead and their father gone, Ambrosine gambles with the deepest desire of her soul as she fights to save her sister.

Based on the Grimm fairy tale, The Tale of the Rose, this is a highly entertaining and bone-chilling story of the first Witch in the Woods."

Mother

Witches of Grimm Book 1


The writer's voice and creativity is absolutely amazing throughout the story
- Amazon Review

Once upon a time there was a girl who grew up near an enchanted wood. She was the delight of her father. The most precious gem of his heart.
And one evening in the spring, on her sixteenth birthday, 
she clutched her infant daughter to her chest and ran for her life.

A century later, a young girl named Maia found true love. Or at least she thought she had before her happily ever after turned into cries of, "Witch! Witch! Witch!" After an impulsive deal with a rumple goblin, Maia escapes the pitchforks and torches by taking her chances in the enchanted woods.

But there's a witch in the woods.

Cerelia hasn't seen another human soul for over one hundred years until a beaten and bloody pregnant girl stumbles into her magical garden. While fighting off witch-hunting villagers is one thing, dealing with rumple goblins is quite another. What will be the cost of saving Maia's child?

Mother is the first book in the Witches of Grimm series. A gripping fairytale retelling of Rapunzel's Mother Gothel, Mother is a magical story of love and sacrifice.

Kissing Crows

Witches of Grimm Book 2

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful, curious girl who lived in an enchanted forest by the sea. Her mother loved her so much that she kept her in a tower, safe from anything that might ever harm her. And it was there, beneath the bright spring sun, that the girl wished she was free to fly with the crows…

Rapunzel lives in a world of mist fairies and mermaids, a world in which her gothel, Cerelia, has always kept her safe from all the evils of the world--rumple goblins, night fairies...and men.

As Rapunzel grows older, the fairy tales stacked high in her tower and her companion crows are no longer enough.

And so she makes a wish…

Prince Charles Marcus of Aubergen is restless, refusing to be content with the details of his arranged life. To escape the suffocating formality of his younger brother’s royal wedding, Charles takes his small boat out onto the sea.

Then a storm hits.

After surviving the storm and fighting off mermaids, Charles wakes in a strange cave to Rapunzel’s curious sea-green eyes. At that moment, Charles knows he has found his true love in this beautiful Lady of Crows.

But will true love be enough to keep them safe from Cerelia’s raging fear? Or the dark magic festering in the enchanted woods?

Kissing Crows is the second book in the Witches of Grimm series. A dark fairytale retelling of the classic “Rapunzel,” Kissing Crows is a powerful tale of forbidden freedom.
