Taken by Magic, Jasmine Walt

Even as Sunaya’s fairy-tale romance with her handsome, powerful Chief Mage is celebrated in the media, all Sunaya wants is to get past the endless duties and social engagements of her new role, and spend a bit of private time with Iannis. Doing her best to ignore the many naysayers poo-pooing their match, she counts down the days of these last stressful weeks before the wedding and much-needed honeymoon.

But as it turns out, dealing with snooty mages and uppity politicians are the least of Sunaya’s troubles. For Sunaya and Iannis have failed to reckon with an ancient and powerful enemy, who does not want their union to take place, and will go to any lengths to separate them — including murder.

Torn from their friends and family, faced with harrowing dangers with no one to call to for help, Sunaya must fight for her love and happiness against overwhelming odds.

Whether or not she survives to see her wedding day rests entirely on Sunaya’s shoulders.

And despite being ill-prepared for the challenges ahead, Sunaya has every intention of making her latest enemy regret their attempt to keep her from the man she loves most in the world.

Enforcer Annia Melcott is no stranger to adversity.

A damned good investigator and a loyal friend, she’s fought rebels and terrorists, taken down dangerous criminal gangs, and risked herself time and again for the sake of her city.

But when Annia’s life goes up in smoke, she decides she’s had enough. Hoping to lose herself in an adventure or two, she travels to the Southern continent for a much-needed respite.

The first mission she snags is simple enough — escort two mage children and their guardian back to their ancestral home, and make sure they don’t get killed or kidnapped by bandits. But while Southia’s verdant lands are beautiful and compelling, they are also rife with ancient, wild magic that the world has forgotten.

Evil shamans, powerful goddesses, and vengeful ghosts lurk in unexpected places, and if Annia isn’t careful, she might very well become their next victim…


Author’s Note:
This is a backstory novella that takes place concurrent to the events in Taken by Magic. It is also a prequel to Tempted by Magic, Book One in the brand-new Mischief and Magic series, coming Spring 2020!

Tainted, Alexandra Moody

tainted am

Find out what it means to be tainted in this post-apocalyptic future where the secrets are as deep and dark as the fallout shelter humanity survives in.

Elle Winters lost everything when the day of impact transformed Earth’s surface into an icy, desolate wasteland.

All she has ever known are the artificial confines of underground fallout shelter, the ARC. Under the Council’s rule, ruthless officials roam the hallways, community comes first and everyone lives in fear of failing their annual testing.

With one simple blood test you could be taken away without any warning or a word of goodbye.

There are only a few people in the ARC who Elle truly cares about and she desperately tries to keep them at arm’s length for fear of losing someone else. Especially, her best friend, Sebastian, who she denies her feelings for, even from herself.

Chilling secrets and mysterious disappearances plague the ARC, but Elle would never dare to voice the forbidden questions that linger on her lips. That is until they take the wrong person.

No one is truly safe in the ARC and Elle is about to experience her own personal apocalypse. With nothing left to lose she will risk everything to uncover the truth about the tainted.

Will she find what she’s looking for or are some secrets better left buried deep underground?

It’s not much of a life, taking bounty hunts on vampires.

But as a disgraced former deputy, Lincoln Marshall’s not exactly knee-deep in job offers, and airplane tickets are expensive after the apocalypse. His dying father is all the way across the country in Northgate. It’s Lincoln’s last chance to see him, and he’ll do whatever it takes to get there — even though the werewolf pack in Northgate is still out for his blood.

Sophie Keyes, the one and only Historian, needs Lincoln’s help. She fears the gods may be out to kill her. So Lincoln drags her back home despite his better instincts — only to learn that home’s not exactly safer than Reno. Some preternatural monster is killing hospice patients in Northgate.

Sheriff Noah Adair is convinced the killers are werewolves. The werewolves are convinced Lincoln Marshall is the killer. And Lincoln thought surviving the post-apocalypse had been bad enough before all this crap.

God is dead. Lincoln Marshall knows who killed Him…

It’s been a month since the apocalypse destroyed the world as Lincoln Marshall once knew it. The new world is populated by deadly faeries, wild shapeshifters, and humans without a god. Lincoln’s sins can never be absolved now that God is dead. There’s nothing left for him but the bottom of a whiskey bottle.

Until Cesar Hawke comes seeking help. The undersecretary of the new Office of Preternatural Affairs has manifested uncontrollable magical powers. The only cure lies beyond the frontier of the untamed faerie worlds — a land that no mortal man can survive. He needs Lincoln to escort him to the Winter Queen through hostile territory riddled by killer unicorns, doppelgangers, and false prophets. No big deal.

Lincoln Marshall once conquered Hell. He’s certain he can conquer the Middle Worlds too — and if he can’t, he’s happy to die trying.

Killer. Heartbreaker.
Husband…?

Blaine

I hurt, break and kill for a living. The Family point, I deliver. But this time, they ask too much. This time, they want me to marry the one woman who knows my secret. She has reason to hate me, I know, but I’ll take her, I’ll break her, and I’ll make her mine.

That’s the only way I can keep my secret.

Mira

When I ran away eight years ago, I thought I’d escaped the underworld I’d always known. I made a life for myself. I thought I was free. Then my past came knocking at my door. Now I’m marrying the son of London’s biggest crime family. A man who hates me as much as I hate him. He’s ruthless, brutal, and dangerous — everything I’ve always feared.

He’s taken away the life I built, he’s taken my freedom. And now, I fear he’s taken my sanity, too.

How else could I be falling in love with him?

My dream of becoming prima ballerina is dead.

It takes months of depression before I pull myself out of the bleakness and attempt to start living again. With a new job as an assistant to the wealthy but elusive Sachov family, I find myself caught up in a tangled web of desire, pain and sexual awakening that will either destroy me entirely or bring me back to life.

My name is Rose, and I am their muse.
