After tragedy tears Jamie Brandt’s life apart, her only goal is to finish high school so she can leave her small hometown behind. In the meantime, riding her horse is her main source of solace, until a mysterious stable hand shows up at the barn. There’s something not quite right about the handsome new employee, and the more Jamie sees of him, the more determined she becomes to figure out what he’s hiding.

Dothan Reed came to historic Huntsville, Maryland, for one reason–revenge. But his plan can’t move forward until he finds the missing piece he needs to enhance his powers. As the only surviving Nephilim, Dothan is not only weaker than full-blooded angels; his forbidden lineage makes him an outcast in both worlds. When he discovers Jamie is the key to locating an ancient weapon, he’s forced to interact with a vulnerable human girl–a task that becomes more appealing with each encounter.

Jamie soon learns Dothan isn’t the only one with a dark secret. Each new revelation further threatens her safety, and Dothan’s betrayal shatters her heart. Forgiving him seems impossible, but the thought of turning her back on him is equally painful.

As their connection deepens, Dothan will have to make his own difficult choice: continue on his path of vengeance, or protect the girl he loves. And when Dothan’s actions thrust Jamie into an unforeseen danger, he must seek the help of his enemy…or risk losing her forever.

What they’re saying about it:

“As I started reading about Jamie and Dothan, I kept trying to figure out exactly what Dothan was and how Jamie fit into the story. When it was revealed how the two of them were tied together, I had that ah-ha moment and could not believe it–but it all fell into place and made sense. Although Jamie and Dothan are young, the love they shared was amazing. Divine Fall is at the top of my must-share list…Kathryn Knight is an author I am always confident in recommending.” – A Novel Review (5 stars)

As a half-faerie, Melia is an outcast in the enchanted world where she lives with her two sisters and full-blood faerie mother. Their father has been exiled to the mortal world for breaking his faerie troth. He’s determined to return to the Realm of Faerie by harnessing the power of Umbra–an accumulation of psychic ash which dwells in the Void.

Melia becomes tangled in her father’s obsession by way of their telepathic connection. Uncertain about her own nature–is she evil or has she been tainted by her father’s contact with Umbra?–the half-faerie seeks aid from the Illustrator. The mysterious woman makes a strange mark on Melia’s forehead. The mark is meant to draw the help of a green-eyed stranger from distant lands. Before he arrives, a tragic accident destroys what’s left of the half-faerie’s already fractured family. Melia’s mother is unforgiving. The punishment she metes out will leave her middle daughter torn between guilt and ecstasy, challenge the bonds between three sisters, and complicate Melia’s relationship with the green-eyed stranger.

In Half Faerie, the first exciting installment in The Daughter of Light trilogy, Heidi Garrett weaves a fantastical tale of mythical creatures, complicated families, and their intriguing world.

beverlyhillsisburning_FBEVERLY HILLS IS BURNING by Neil Russell
Genre: Thriller, Action & Adventure
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:


“It was just after midnight when the girl in the blue diamond necklace fell out of the sky.”

In Hollywood, an ex-con movie producer, fresh out of San Quentin, is lucky if he can get a valet to take his car at The Ivy. Teddy Chessman got his own studio.

Why? Because Teddy controls the most important motion picture property to hit town since agents were invented. And attached to this expected critical and financial bonanza is the biggest female action star in the world, Valentine Jones.

But good plans die horrible deaths, and foolproof ones, worse. And now, the guy who loaned Teddy the money to buy the joint–Rail Black, a former Delta Force operator with a private fortune–is forced to take possession of Teddy’s dream. And the bad news is just beginning.

Exploding from ninety years in the past–when gangsters and movie tycoons roamed Hollywood and scratched each other’s wallets–Rail is sucked into a quicksand of unsettled scores, duplicity and death, where a couple of billion dollars in boxoffice seems like small change.

From Southern California to New York, Venice, Havana, Mexico and Cyprus, Rail must disentangle the past from the present and come to terms with his feelings for Barrie Fontaine, a long dead woman–and extraordinarily brave pilot–he has never met.

And somewhere, out there, is Matty Aspirins, a hitman on a mission all his own.

Welcome to Beverly Hills is Burning.

There will be no intermission.

“Neil Russell is the king of adventure thrillers… BEVERLY HILLS IS BURNING is a tour-de-force of hot action, cool suspense, and steamy sex. …a once-in-a-lifetime ride with producers, screenwriters, Mafia hitmen, and money. Lots of money. You’ll love this book.”

Gayle Lynds
New York Times Bestselling Author
The Book of Spies

“I just want to tell you what a joy it was to dig into BEVERLY HILLS IS BURNING. I loved the way the two plot lines dovetailed so effortlessly. Your knowledge of old Hollywood made my favorite era in the town come to life.

I laughed out loud so many times, I couldn’t keep count! Your dialogue so reminds me of Raymond Chandler. I felt he was your “ghost.” Every time I came across one of your many metaphorical gems, I had to post it on Facebook.

I’ve got you up there as one of my five favorite writers (including Chandler, as you already know); toss in F.Scott, Le Carre, and Martin Cruz Smith, and there you have my perfect poker game.

And either you or Chandler would be winner take all, no doubt about it.

Seriously, you are my new fave regarding dialogue. Smooth as butter, true to character, no matter the gender, personality, or the time period. You had me at the very first line–and kept me until the last word.

Just hope you’re working on the next in the series.”

INNOCENT_Kindle_CoverINNOCENT by Callie James
Genre: Young Adult (Teen) Romance
Price: $ .99
Where to Get It:

Will Moore has been Missy Jamison’s best friend for years, and until recently, she hadn’t considered going “there” with him for fear of losing the only relationship she trusts. But senior year is almost over and dating other people hasn’t worked out, not with Missy’s crazy home life constantly pushing her further into Will’s safer world, making her attraction to her BFF more difficult to ignore.

When a forgery incident at school lands Missy under house arrest and banned from spending time with Will, she’s unable to ignore her dysfunctional home life any longer. In a desperate attempt for self-preservation, Missy finds herself back with Will and this time things are different.

But the direct violation of her mother’s edict proves the perfect catalyst to push her pill-popping mother over the edge and Missy’s home life past the point of no return. Now her only chance for normalcy will require Missy to ask herself if staying silent for so many years was truly about protecting herself from her past, or more about protecting a mother who never protected her.


I enjoyed reading this well written book…so much so, that it was one of those books I couldn’t put down and therefore ended up reading through the night. The characters are well defined; I cared about the emotions of, and situations pertaining to, Missy and Will, and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to become of them. Callie James writes with passion, enthusiasm…and humor. Sprinkled throughout some serious topics are some hysterical gems that kept a smile on my face throughout the seriousness. Serious topics were handled realistically, and thoughtfully. I highly recommend this read! (Amazon – Kristi)

I loved this book by Callie James! I read her other book, Student Bodyguard For Hire, and loved it too. I was so excited when I found out this book was out. I completely connected with the characters and read almost the entire book in one day. Once I got into it, I just couldn’t put it down! I highly recommend this book! I don’t want to spoil anything, but make sure you have a fresh box of tissue with you when reading. (Amazon – Catherine Nicole Diane Duke)

The brief colliding encounter suddenly starts a relationship between two strangers that takes off under odd circumstances. When intimacy begins, their relationship turns into a conflicting set of needs. Ian is tenderhearted and respectful, but Rachel desires aggressiveness from a man. The clash of desires threatens to tear them apart. As a result, she is faced with the decision to leave the man she loves or finally confront the painful secret of her childhood.

Feast Cover-mdThe Feast: A Parable of the Ring by Kathryn Elizabeth Jones
Genre: Christian fiction
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:

Virginia had experienced the power and direction of the five stones; now, she would need to use them again.
For entirely different reasons.

Keeping her marriage together was not the only thing on her mind. Having a child wasn’t going to happen in the usual way, and Virginia was determined that adoption was the answer. If she did all of the right things, said all of the right words; if she remembered the five stones in her journey to get her child, God would surely have to answer her.

It wouldn’t be too difficult.

What they’re saying about it:

“The Feast is a book that manages to both instruct and entertain. I found the book thought provoking and a pleasure to read. I thoroughly recommend it to all those readers looking for a book of quality, one that is worth the effort to purchase and read.

The guide at the end of the book is an excellent reference that contains a wealth of wisdom.

Too many books today are poorly written in the telling style and lack substance. The Feast is not one of those. It’s a book which I’m sure makes the author proud and is a worthwhile addition to the works of Kathryn Elizabeth Jones.”

What would you do if someone you loved disappeared? What would you do if you were told they’d never existed? This most awful of nightmares comes true for Eva when her closest friend, Annie, vanishes. Even Annie’s parents deny her existence.

The uncertainty of the early months of 1939 has been eclipsed. Eva’s comfortable, normal small town life becomes despairing and desperate, until a friendly hand reaches out to her. The elderly and eccentric Lola shows no surprise at Eva’s tale. Neither does Gabe; young, handsome and distant. They have answers that lead to more questions, and information that leads to confusion. The pair guide Eva through a new and frightening world towards her beloved Annie. Eva is sure that her search has absorbed every part of her, until she realises how close she’s becoming to the mysterious but tender Gabe.

As Eva learns more about the hidden world now exposed to her, the depth of which seems infinite, she finds that people can be lost and all memory of them forsaken. Gabe and Lola are lost, just like Annie; but unlike Annie, no-one is looking for them to guide them home. Eva, now attached to Lola and deeply tied to Gabe, struggles to believe that nothing can be done to help them.

Eva’s search is littered with many things – doubt, discovery, love, belonging and a myriad of scary jigsaw pieces; lost friends, the giving of gifts, a library of books, a troubled conscience and a brilliant pianist. Can Eva piece it all together to see the picture or has she missed something? Does Eva find Annie? Will Gabe reveal his story and are his and Lola’s other lost friends a help or a hindrance?

Those are the emotions Ben Carpenter feels as the lone survivor of a terrible night, three years before, where fate was so unkind.

Resolved to a life of loneliness, Ben is sideswiped when envy takes hold after he’s asked to stand as Best Man at his best friend’s wedding.

Before he can deal with the idea of opening up to love again, tragedy strikes…just not for Ben this time.

As secrets to his wife’s betrayal come to light, Ben is faced with the reality that an opportunity to heal stares him straight in the face—albeit, in the form of Hannah.

Is there really such a thing as second chances?

If there were one day that she could change it would be the day she was taken.

After her parents’ divorce, seventeen-year-old Izzy Scott and her mother move to the old town of St. Augustine to begin a new life, a life beyond the media attention and the memories of the traumatic experiences that left an everlasting affect on their family.

The former ballerina is trying to adjust to the outside world without suffering a panic attack and exposing who she is – all while getting through her senior year at a new school. That’s easy to say until she meets local boy Mason Winchester, a boy with a tragic past.

Mason has a reputation for violence, but a love for motorcycles. At the age of eleven he lost his mother to cancer and from then he has been running from something, but could never really get away.

Like any other angry teenager, he just wants to be left alone and to have nothing to do with anyone else because he believed that he had nothing to offer. That changes the moment he saw what was in the new girl eyes.

Tragedy wasn’t new to either of their lives but among the secrets and the memories the one thing they both never excepted was to find hope.

.99 Days: Aug 14-15
Genre: Action, Adventure, Chick-Lit, Contemporary, Historic Military
Where to Buy:

Desire and Prejudice is about the healing power of true lovemaking and the damning power of ethnic bias.

When Jasmine and Adam first meet, they are both totally caught by surprise; their inner feelings are the magnetic force that draws them to each other. Their burning desires toward one another are unstoppable, but they are condemned by their separate lives – he is a French official and she is a Muslim.

They find ways to be with each other when they couldn’t.

The poetic letter takes the reader into the minds of two lovers desperately wanting one another, but each holding back because of their cultural backgrounds and the fear of getting caught in their dangerous game.

The erotic descriptions are vivid enough, but scarcely the right quantity of description to know precisely what is going on.

Desire and Prejudice is much more than “boy meets girl, they fall in love”; it tells a realistic, believable story that readers haven’t heard before.

These characters, nor the twisted end of the story, are definitely not the stereotypical a reader can predict.
