Dr Camden James is a rural vet, not a wedding planner, so he quickly feels out of his depth when, in a fit of generosity, he offers to glam up his sister’s budget wedding in a secret move designed to surprise her. With only six weeks to make this the wedding of his sister’s dreams he needs to move fast.

Stumbling around in the largely female world of weddings he gets a lead on the go-to girl for wedding flowers – Georgiana Mac Intyre. Georgi, reeling from a very public breakup, is not interested in men in anyway shape or form. Not even super-cute vets – even when they are clearly interested in her.

Cam shamelessly uses his story to get her to help. It has all the elements; romance against the odds, true love, orphans (you can’t have good story without an orphan or two), and a bride.

The Wrong Sword by Ted Mendelssohn
Genre: YA Fantasy (Historical, Comic)
Price:  $4.99

For a thousand years, Excalibur has been the sword of heroes.  Unfortunately, its new owner isn’t one.
&
Henry of Sanbruc, medieval smartass, makes a pretty good living selling “magic” swords to gullible knights. When he’s forced to steal the real thing from the Chapel Perilous, his troubles are only beginning: For Excalibur is not just the sword of heroes…it’s also the sword that won’t SHUT UP. It communicates with its owner, it knows what kind of owner it deserves, and Henry doesn’t even come close.
&
To keep Excalibur and the world safe from the appalling Geoffrey Plantagenet, Henry will have to masquerade as a knight, crash a royal wedding, rescue a princess, break a siege, penetrate the secrets of the Perilous Brotherhood, and find Excalibur’s rightful bearer, all while trying to reach an accommodation with a snotty, aristocratic hunk of steel that mocks him, takes over his body, and keeps trying to turn him into the one thing he hates most…a hero.
*
What They’re Saying About It:
^
“The Wrong Sword delivers many laugh-out-loud moments, and the conniving Henry is more real and likeable than perhaps even King Arthur himself” – Sarah Zaske, YA Fantastic Book Review
^
“It’s a clean, light, hilarious read.” – Anna Frost’s Den
^
“The Wrong Sword is a wonderful twist on the legend of Excalibur. It is filled with enough magic, humor, and danger to satisfy the most adventurous spirit. Fans of young adult fantasy should certainly give The Wrong Sword a try.” – Long and Short Reviews

4 out of 5 stars ~ “This delightful Regency tale takes historical fiction one step further, by exploring relationships that time and death cannot sever by introducing paranormal elements. Lauren Hunter’s extensive research into this period is evident and creates a traditional setting for this non-traditional story. Her use of humour and dialogue brings the characters to life, crafting an engaging story with witty repartee.” ~ Mrs. Rabbit

Kidnapped by human monsters, Grace Thorne was ripped from her quiet intellectual life and left deeply scarred.

Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis

Where to Get It:

*
There are worse things than death, worse people too.
*
The “talk” was bad enough, but how many teens get told that they’re a goddess? When her mom tells her, Persephone is sure her mother has lost her mind. It isn’t until Boreas, the god of winter, tries to abduct her that she realizes her mother was telling the truth. Hades rescues her, and in order to safely bring Persephone to the Underworld he marks her as his bride. But Boreas will stop at nothing to get Persephone. Despite her growing feelings for Hades, Persephone wants to return to the living realm. Persephone must find a way to defeat Boreas and reclaim her life.
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis is an exciting, imaginative, and modern retelling of the Persephone myth – no easy feat. Greek myths are steeped in tradition that defies retelling unless you are unafraid to turn the mythos on its head; Ms. Bevis does this masterfully.” ~ Micki
*
“I enjoyed Hades and Persephone’s sweet romantic relationship. Persephone has her flaws, but she is likable and learns along the way. The author’s writing is descriptive and entertaining. I am looking forward to the next book.” Rebecca Foote @ Paranormal Muse
*
“At times I felt as though I was a ghost seeing everything develop around me with all the character and the issues they face and sympathizing and empathizing.” ~ Shh… I’m reading

Michaela’s Gift by Cordelia Dinsmore
Genre: Light Fantasy, Middle Grade, Young Adult
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:
Musa Publishing       Amazon      Barnes & Noble        Smashwords
*
*
*
Michaela Cochran and her family make the trip to her father’s ancestral home every year, but this year is special. Michaela is now twelve, the age when every girl in the family receives a special gift. When Aunt Sharon explains that Michaela’s gift is a magical ability to bring one of her drawings to life, Michaela begins making plans. What she wants most is a castle high on the mountain, where her family can live together. But if she can’t figure out how to resolve the growing hostility between herself and her mother, her gift is meaningless.
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“This was a very sweet story. Almost twelve-year-old Michaela makes her yearly trip to visit her grandparents at her father’s ancestral home in the mountains. Very interesting (unexpected) things happen there, and as is the custom for the twelve-year-old girls in her family, she’s about to receive a gift. (But not an ordinary gift; this one has a bit of magic attached).
*
Michaela and her mother butt heads, as many mothers and daughters do. She seems like a realistic pre-teen who wants to be independent but who still needs her mother. And there are a few mysteries that the reader wants to get to the bottom of. (Like, why are there ghosts in a certain room?) I don’t want to spoil the plot here, but I will say that the story was unique and held my interest. I think this book would work especially well for readers aged 8 to 12.”
