Burning Violet, AP Watson

Not all scars are visible. But even the invisible ones can cut deep enough to permanently mar your soul.

I would know.

My soul has been broken for over half of my life. The ones who should’ve loved me pushed me away. And others who pretended to care for me just caused more damage.

To my family, I was a constant reminder that ripped us apart. To most, I was nothing more than a pretty face. I begun to doubt redemption and respect would ever be possible… until I met him.

He was everything I needed and everything I couldn’t allow myself to want.

But if I couldn’t outrun my past, maybe he could burn it all away.

Burning Bright, Chris Cannon

BB_1600 (1)

Bryn is back for her senior year at the Institute for Excellence, also known as shape-shifting dragon school. She isn’t sure which is scarier, the life-force-sucking dragons stalking campus or the fact that she’s officially betrothed to Jaxon, a guy who will never love her. Not that she could ever love him, either…

That’s just ridiculous.

Senior year should be fun. Her parents are alive, she’s finally fitting in, and she’s learning how to be a Medic. But what’s with Jaxon giving her strange looks?

He runs hot and cold, and he doesn’t even have the excuses of being a hybrid fire-and-ice-breathing dragon like her. One minute they’re having a great time and the next, she wants to blast a fireball at his head. The marriage contract of doom looms over them — unless this match not made in heaven kindles a flame…

UL Ebook Final

Princess Raya of Paruth lived alone on a deserted island in a towering lighthouse, forgotten by time.

With only a loyal albatross as a friend, she had a little hope or joy in her life until he washed up on her shore in the middle of a raging winter storm.

Prince Trevor or Galder left his father and kingdom behind to travel north in search of a wife. It was time to settle down and forget Ella Carina, the woman who chose to love a peasant and follow her heart instead of choosing Trevor and fulfilling her duty to her people.

He didn’t heed the warnings about the North Sea in winter, and his ship, crew, and captain paid the price.

Raya and Trevor must work together to find a way off the island, or risk being trapped there for the rest of their lives. But sometimes the simplest lessons are the hardest, and each will have to learn that the only thing that can truly set you free is love.

You Deserve Better, AP Watson

You Deserve Better-FINAL-high

As a woman with a past full of heartache, I’d heard the words “you deserve better” more times than I cared to admit.

And while I thought Jacks was my definition of better, his betrayal certainly was not. The idea we’re all destined to find some great love was a reality I wanted to give up on. I had known true happiness, and it was in the arms of Jackson Carmichael.

I was supposed to say I didn’t miss him, but that would have been the biggest lie I’ve ever told.

He’d been my best friend, the one who had understood me, the one who had known my deepest secrets and admired me in spite of them. That kind of love was hard to erase.

I’d tried to move on with someone else, but the memory of what Jacks and I shared always lingered in the back of my mind. When he had asked to reestablish our friendship, I knew better than to agree. But after tragedy struck, the need for friendship and truth destroyed the walls I’d built around my heart. As the time came for me to choose between the man I always wanted and the safety my heart so desperately craved, I was forced to answer the question I’d been avoiding for months:

Are second chances worth the risk?

ebook (3)

Fourteen-year-old Callum Silver sees dead people.

It’s not a gift. His family thinks he’s crazy. Sometimes he thinks he’s crazy. He has no friends. He’s forced to live his life surrounded by nothing but the searing pain, sickening smells and desperate moans that accompany the murdered ghosts who seek him out.

When he’s offered a place at Camp Wanagi, the ten weeks in the French countryside isn’t a vacation, it’s a lifeline. A way to meet others like himself and prove his ability can offer more than years of loneliness and expensive therapy bills.

Run by a mysterious group known as the Oracle of Senders, Camp Wanagi brings together teens from around the globe who all possess the unique ability to see the dead. While Cal is relieved to find others like him, he learns quickly that not everybody experiences the spirits as he does. Some of the campers revere their abilities and don’t understand his hesitation, while others- like quiet bookworm Meander Rhoades -have good reason for wishing they could get rid of their ‘gifts’.

While researching their final project, Cal and Meander find an unmarked grave which reveals aspects of their abilities neither knew existed, forcing Cal to decide if the torture of seeing ghosts is worthwhile and, more importantly, if being a part of the Oracle of Senders is necessary, dangerous… or both.
