11314891The Bringer by Samantha Towle

Death is sad, love is agony.

Max was her next job. She got his name just before he died and it was for her to lead his soul to heaven. She was a Bringer.

Then Max started pleading (as they often do), but not for himself, for his son, James.

Would she look after him, would she comfort him as he grieved for the loss of his father? James was a sensitive young man. He would take his father’s death very hard.

Well, Bringers don’t do that sort of thing; their exclusive role is to usher souls to heaven. They are not allowed to get involved in earthly affairs.

13373170Feathermore by Lucy Swing

When the one thing you live for is denied to you, do you let it go or do you fall?

Jade, like any other student at Brushwood High, awaits the start of the school year with a certain measure of dread. Worse, she is being threatened by a voice that only she can hear—a voice that lurks at the edges of her awareness, haunting her and warning her of something unknown. She has always been able to count on her two best friends, Claire and Nate, but can she confide in them now? About this? Would they even believe her?

Life takes a turn for the better when she meets Avan, a darkly handsome new student who, somehow, seems to drown out the voice and make her feel at ease.

But Jade soon comes to realize that good things don’t last forever. When everything spirals out of control, she is shattered by something she never saw coming. Dazed and despairing, she must now overcome tragedy and embrace her true existence and a new but dangerous love. Will she be able to save herself and those she loves, before it’s too late? Or will she let the surrounding darkness consume her?

13568218Forbidden by Amy Miles

Roseline Enescue didn’t ask to become an Immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend. Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America. Terrified her husband Vladimir will find her, Roseline enrolls as a senior in Chicago’s elite Rosewood Prep school. Mingling with humans is the last place he would look for her.But her transition into the human world isn’t easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Yet Roseline remains relatively unfazed by the petty hysteria until she falters into the arms of Gabriel Marston, reluctant MVP quarterback, unwilling ladies man, sensitive artist in hiding, and blah, blah, blah. Troubled by the bond that pulls her towards the mortal boy, Roseline tries to ignore him, but Gabriel is persistent. As their lives entwine, Roseline begins to realize that Gabriel is much more than he appears. His ability to toss a football the entire length of the field and grind concrete into dust pales in comparison to the glowing blue cross tattoo that mysteriously appears on his forearms.

Despite the forbidden bond between them, Roseline can’t help wondering what Gabriel is: He’s not human. He’s not Immortal. So just what is he?

13517980The Council by J.C. Isabella

Venna Greer is a witch suffering from a case of magic-induced amnesia, making her think she’s a normal girl. She lives in the sleepy town of Capeside, Virginia, with her foster parents and girl-crazy younger brother. Venna is secretly in love with her best friend, Henry Langley, and has a decision to make: tell him her feelings or not? But what she doesn’t know is that Henry has a secret of his own.

Henry Langley is a warlock, and his parents are members of the Council that rule the magical world. He’s having a difficult time deciding which to confess to Venna first: his love, the fact that he knows who she is, or that they are on the brink of a war with the potential to expose them to humans.

Time is running out. Venna is thrust into a new world. A world she once belonged to, and war that has more to do with her than anyone ever imagined.

13517978The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club by J.C. Isabella

Welcome to the big leagues. To secrets and scandals. It’s all about the game. Who’s playing. Who’s not. Who has no idea about the game. And…wait, what game are we playing?

I’ll leave that for you to decide.

Where to start is the big question for Chloe Baker. How was she supposed to explain to Zack Warren that she started a fan club for him when she was a kid? It was just a game. A way to make friends and have fun. She never thought it would spiral out of control. And never. In a million, gazillion years, did she think it would follow her to college. How could she tell him her best friend Lana kept the club alive? That she had nothing to do with the craziness?

Chloe didn’t understand why she cared so much about Zack’s opinion of her. She hated him. He hated her. They had very mutual feelings of dislike for each other. So he’d just hate her even more when or if he found out.

And that’s totally fine…she thinks.

Zack Warren had a soft spot for Chloe Baker. He likes the way she walks. He likes the way she talks. If he was poetically inclined, he’d write a sonnet about her ass.

It’s Zack’s junior year of college. He’s got things to worry about. Scouts from the major leagues. Baseball games. Contracts. Grades…. His father ran away to Vegas with Chloe’s mother. He didn’t have time to worry about a girl. But he did. He worried about Chloe a lot, especially with that jerk Max sniffing around her. It’s weird though, to like your stepsister, right?

But Zack could argue that he saw Chloe first. Way before his dad met her mom. He was too young to stake a claim. But just didn’t care anymore.

He’s done playing games.

The Book’s Opening

Over the years, that horrible vision of her, staring up at him from the freshly dug grave had faded. But in recent months, every time he closed his eyes to try and sleep, all he would see were those blue-green eyes of hers, staring up at him, like when he last saw her that night . . .

2940013012936_p0_v1_s260x420Satori Ranch by Mary Frisbee

A decrepit 1965 Volkswagen Microbus is discovered in a marijuana patch at Satori Ranch, an abandoned Oregon commune. Inside the bus are scattered human bones, determined by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department to be those of John and Mary Beth Brooke, who disappeared thirty years ago. Their daughter, painter and environmental activist Trout Brooke, is compelled to seek the cause of her hippie parents’ deaths. As she digs into Satori Ranch’s history, it becomes clear that dark events led to the deaths, as well as the desertion of the lovingly-built homestead that had supported twenty people in supposedly idyllic counterculture style. As she travels to meet and question the Ranchers, now scattered across the country from Boston to Berkeley, Brook’s determined search into the past results in danger to herself, with murder looming large as the explanation for the loss of her family. A murder mystery set partially in America’s ‘60s counterculture — a rich and unsettled time in history — Satori Ranch explores how parents’ past ideals can spill into their children’s present. Satori Ranch follows a strong lone woman pursuing answers about her past as she tracks down a murderer.
