Illiya (Taylor Neeran Chronicles Book 1) by [Mathews, J J]

A.D. 3485

Human expansion into the stars has been under way for over a millennium as fresh worlds are colonized and newly discovered alien species are invited to join a loose commonwealth of planets that now extends beyond the Orion spur of the Milky Way galaxy. 

However, not all species are peaceful. A hundred years of war to repel the Xathen invasion turned into an uneasy truce that has lasted for nearly thirty years. Exploration of systems has resumed, with the Zanzibar sent to complete the survey of a planet on the fringes of Xathen space. When the Xathen declared war over a hundred and thirty years ago, contact with the first survey ship was lost, and they never returned home.

These are the chronicles of Taylor Neeran – university student, daughter of an absentee mother and passenger on the Zanzibar. Taylor has come along for the trip to explore a new planet, earn a few extra course credits, and get to know her mother.

Well, that was the plan.

When Taylor triggers a diplomatic incident with the planet’s inhabitants, she soon finds herself struggling to survive alongside her alien companion, lost in the wilds of the planet she would come to call home…

In this coming-of-age tale, Hayley discovers there’s more to not only the Order of Knights but the world around her and the strength that lurks inside her heart.

Lost Angels (Prequel)

Busy collecting prayers, on top of watching over the Archangels, it’s another day for Jude Thaddeus to prove his perfection to Father God. He intends to uphold his impeccable record and become an Archangel. Nothing must come between him and his desire.

Except…

After years of planning, Lucifer has discovered a means to kill his siblings, the Archangels. It’s a perfect plan. One he’s sure Jude will not see coming. Neither will the Archangels who’ve now become complacent, self-righteous, judgmental, and arrogant.

The battle begins when Ava, the woman chosen to veil the Sacred City of Ashbourne, cries out for help.

Everyone has a plan, a need, or a desire, except they forget the one plan that matters most—God’s. The outcome is shocking, one that triggers a never-ending battle, and unveils a love story like no other.

The Seer (Book I)

What if you wake up one day to find every fairy tale, nightmare or the romantic bedtime story you were told is more real than what you thought it was? You could be one of those beings you thought were most evil and frightening? And still be that girl who will find a love like no other.

Who really is Alexandra?

Protected from a world of angels, demons, vampires, and hybrids, Alexandra thinks knowing nothing about her father is the biggest of all the secrets her mother holds. Until she has an accident on her motorcycle.

Speed-loving Alexandra is paralyzed, then wakes up a few minutes later completely healed. It’s difficult for her to draw the truth out of her protective mother and to understand why she sees visions of angels. Somewhere out there, there’s a man they call the Vangel, who is both her foe and soulmate. Some say he wants Alexandra dead, but no one remembers his face.

Is he Alexandra’s current boyfriend, her maybe-next boyfriend, or someone she’s yet to meet?  The answer lies in her past, which she can’t know until she gets the Ring that will protect her from the fatal consequences of unveiling the truth. Will Alexandra be patient enough to wait? Or will her curiosity bring the world tumbling down?

“I was unable to put this book down once I started reading it. It’s all of 80 pages or so and is a relatively fast read. Within those pages we glimpse a bit of Elven life on the planet Elveron as well as the all-important “coming of age” for Maia. “On Fire” is a superb introduction to Cox’s Elemental series but will stand alone with no problem. Do yourself a favor and get this book!” ~ Larry C

Like Annat, Yuda is a Shaman; a Wanderer with magical powers, able to enter other worlds. As Annat learns more about her powers, the children join their father on a remarkable train journey to the frozen north and find a land of mystery and intrigue, threatened by dark forces and beset by senseless murders that have halted construction of a new tunnel. But Annat’s doll, her only remembrance of her dead mother, may hold a dark secret – and when her brother Malchik is kidnapped, Annat and her father must travel onwards to find him before it is too late.

The Ritual: Book One of the Plagueborne Trilogy by [Lüthi, Mitchell]

A devastating plague is sweeping the continent of Greater Virren…

Yet the city of Rothenberg remains inexplicably untouched…
The Council has grown convinced of their immunity, even as their neighbours are consumed before them. As the world teeters on the brink of collapse, a zealous religious order has re-emerged. They claim to have discovered the source of the plague… but can they be trusted?

The plague will never reach Rothenberg…

If she trusts the wrong person, she’ll face the gods’ judgment.

Lost Reaper (Reaper's Ascension Book 1) by [Russell Nolan, Shelley]


The first dead body I ever saw was my own

For twenty-five year old Tyler Morgan, being murdered was easy. Easy in comparison with working for the Grim Reaper. 

Jonathon Grimm may have brought her back from the dead in exchange for working as a reaper for her home town, Easton, but she has to find his lost reaper before she can enjoy her second chance at life. 

Only … the lost reaper isn’t actually lost. He has a new body, a new life, and no intention of turning himself in. 

He could be anyone – the intriguing detective, Sam Lockwood: the handsome, wealthy Chris Bradbury; or the serial killer stalking the women of Easton. Women who bear an uncanny resemblance to Tyler. And what is the ancient secret that has motivated Grimm to choose Tyler for such morbid work?

As the killer closes in and Grimm’s deadline draws closer, Tyler discovers she is fighting a much bigger threat than the Grim Reaper and time is running out for everyone.

A fast-paced, supernatural thriller, Lost Reaper will appeal to male and female readers alike with its combination of great storytelling, action and romance.

I wanted the sun, the beach, and the women in bikinis looking for some attention. I wasn’t counting on intense attraction and soulful green eyes. After all, how hard could it be to get one woman on a plane back to Houston… 

Amelia: 
I couldn’t believe I’d fallen for Michael Smith’s BS. He was my boss at Genotym, Inc. and I should’ve known better. I liked the attention. I liked to feel wanted. When I found out he was stealing from the company- I’d had enough. Sure, he tried to deny it, but I had the proof on a USB. 
I quit, told him he needed to come clean, cashed out my 401K and took off to Grenada to lick my wounds and figure out what I’d do next. When I was almost mugged on the streets of St. George’s, a handsome stranger came to my rescue. He was the sexiest man I had ever seen. He seemed like the type that left broken hearts in his wake. I wasn’t looking to get involved but when things go from bad to worse who else could I turn to for protection. Even if I had everything to lose, including my heart…
