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.

Called by Magic, Jasmine Walt

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!

The Raging Ones, Krista & Becca Ritchie

raging

In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds.

Franny Bluecastle, a tough city teen, dreams of dying in opulence, to see wealth she’s never known. Like the entire world, she believes it’s impossible to dodge a deathday.

Until the day she does.

Court Icecastle knows wealth. He also knows pain. Spending five years in Vorkter Prison, a fortress of ice and suffering, he dreams of life beyond the purple that haunt him and the world that imprisoned him.

Mykal Kickfall fights for those he loves. The rugged Hinterlander shares a frustrating yet unbreakable connection with Court — which only grows more lawless and chaotic as their senses and emotions connect with Franny.

With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space.

Against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way they do.

Hell’s Hinges, SM Reine

Sophie Keyes has made a mistake that might destroy the universe.

The Traveler has an offer: go back in time, fix your mistake, and save the world. Easy. Except that fixing Sophie’s mistake means destroying her life, and Lincoln Marshall won’t stand to see that happen. Not if he can time travel with them to find another way.

Their attempt to jump into the past goes awry and dumps them into Reno 2006, where Elise Kavanagh is in hiding with James Faulkner. It’s a delicate moment in the timeline, and if Lincoln takes a single wrong step, he’ll change everything. He can’t go to Elise for help. He can’t speak to the woman he’s loved for years, touch her again, kiss her… Not unless he’s willing to bring the universe that much closer to destruction.

For the Godslayer, Lincoln might be willing to lose it all.
For the Traveler, it might be a step too far.

War is breaking out in Reno 2006, and the consequences threaten to ripple through time — assuming that they don’t make the entire world fall apart first.

Spellsmoke, SM Reine

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.

Pretty things don’t distract me.

In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game.

I don’t love.
I hate.

Even a pretty boy like him.

Hayes

Two wrongs don’t make a right.

Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. And if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved.

It’s only fair she replace her.

Between battling the Dragon God’s sinister will, evading Salcombe’s sabotage attempts, and securing the future of her people, Zara’s got her work cut out for her.

And when she finally reaches the death god’s lair, the price she’ll be forced to pay for his help might just break her…

Ragnarök Rising, Nora Ash

Five possessive gods and the end of mankind. That’s my fate.

I always thought the end of the world was a myth. But then, I also thought Norse gods were make believe, too.

They’re not.

Five of them are coming for me. They claim I will only survive if I surrender to them, body and soul.

But they don’t realize it’s about so much more than carnal servitude. I am so much more than they could ever suspect. So much more than even I knew.

I am the only one who can stop Ragnarök from covering the world in ice and darkness. The only one who can save gods and men alike from annihilation.

And in the shadows lurks betrayal so deep it will change the fate of the world…
