41zCMnZ-TgLCREATUS TALIS

For four thousand years, creatus elders have insisted that the creatus population concealed themselves from human beings because humans had hunted the creatus almost to extinction…

But one woman’s research reveals that when creatus first arrived on this planet, humans didn’t fear the alien beings that looked so much like the human race. That is, until the creatus started to breed with humans, creating a ferocious killer feared by humans and creatus alike. A creature so fierce that its legacy of death and destruction has fed nightmares for millennia. And now, a new breed of creatus has been born — or rather, reborn.

Vev, one of the first generations of creatus talis, finds herself torn between her younger family members and a forbidden love as she fights to save the young talis from being turned into a weapon — or worse, annihilation.

41zUjYtaZMLTHE ANGEL’S SONG ~ COMING JANUARY 1

He has learned a great deal about himself from his journey and he realizes that the time has come to make peace with his brother and his past. When he arrives in the small town where he grew up he finds that he has a granddaughter that he never knew existed, and she almost the same age as his daughter. The two girls grow up as close as sisters. But one is more beautiful than a star filled night sky, while the other has a physical condition that keeps her from spreading her wings and discovering her own self-worth. As the girls grow into women the love they have for each other is constantly tested by sibling rivalry, codependency, and betrayals. Are these two decedents of Cyrus Hunt destined to repeat their father’s mistakes? Or will they rise above their human weakness and inadequacies and honor the bonds of blood and family that unite them?

419c6LAZhmL._SY346_BEFORE WE WERE STRANGERS

Something happened to her mother that night. Something no one wants to talk about. But she’s determined to uncover her family’s dark secrets, even if they bury her.

Five-year-old Sloane McBride couldn’t sleep that night. Her parents were arguing again, their harsh words heating the cool autumn air. And then there was that other sound—the ominous thump before all went quiet.

In the morning, her mother was gone.

The official story was that she left. Her loving, devoted mother! That hadn’t sat any better at the time than it did when Sloane moved out at eighteen, anxious to leave her small Texas hometown in search of anywhere else. But not even a fresh start working as a model in New York could keep the nightmares at bay. Or her fears that the domineering father she grew up with wasn’t just difficult—he was deadly.

Now another traumatic loss forces Sloane to realize she owes it to her mother to find out the truth, even if it means returning to a small town full of secrets and lies, a jilted ex-boyfriend, and a father and brother who’d rather see her silenced. But as Sloane starts digging into the past, the question isn’t whether she can uncover what really happened that night…it’s what will remain of her family if she does?

51VMerdX6hLLOVE, HOPES, & MARRIAGE TROPES

KINDLEUNLIMITED

A wedding and a murder…Star football player and NFL hopeful, Michael “Bumper” Hackett is getting married. Word’s going around that it’s a shotgun wedding, and there just might be some truth to it, seeing that the bride-to-be is showing a baby bump. But before the ceremony can even get started, the poor groom collapses from what appears to be an asthma attack. Unfortunately, things aren’t always what they seem.

Romaine knew it was a bad idea to have a wedding at the funeral home, but newly elected justice of the peace and sole proprietor of the Ball Funeral Home & Crematorium, her Auntie Zanne, thought it was a perfect way to advertise her business. Instead, it’s another murder that’s been dropped on her doorstep. That can’t be good for business!

Add to that, Romaine’s beau from up north shows up out of the blue and has her hoping for her chance at happily ever after and escaping her tiny hometown of Roble. First, though, a murder has to be solved and Romaine pairs up with her Auntie Zanne (against the direct order of Romaine’s first cousin, Sheriff Pogue Folsom), and aims to catch the killer before the Friday Night Lights go on

51cDj-Bjf9LHER MR. MIRACLE

Veronica “Ronnie” Clark has had it up to here with her family. So she shoves her suitcase into the trunk of her car along with that billowy, lacy, monstrosity of a bridal gown and hits the road. Unfortunately, her old Volvo gives out, leaving her stranded on Christmas Eve in the nearly deserted seaside town of Ocean City, Maryland. Oh, boy, does she ever need a miracle!

And like Christmas magic, her Mr. Miracle appears. Adam Rone stops to offer her assistance, and once the tow truck drives away with the Volvo, he suggests she stay at Ocean Dreams, the hotel he owns and operates in the tourist town.

Ronnie is drawn to the compassionate single dad, and the attraction they feel is undeniable. But when she learns all he’s going through to keep his family together, she can’t bring herself to reveal to him that she’s running from hers. All she wants is for him to take her in his arms and kiss her, but he keeps asking about that stupid wedding dress!

Look for all the titles in the Ocean City Boardwalk Series… where life isn’t just fun in the sun—love is waiting on those sandy shores!

A murder…broadcast for thousands to see…has just become a viral sensation.

A brutal, methodical murderer, known as the Facebook Live Killer, has cold-bloodedly killed vibrant, beautiful young women in front of the whole world. The heartless bastard streams the footage on Facebook Live.

The latest killing stuns the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Known for its sun, sand, and sea, the vacation paradise hasn’t seen a murder in over ten years. Now the residents fear a murderer lives among them…taunting them…terrified this is only the beginning.

For Massachusetts State Police Detective, Lieutenant Mason Conrad, the case couldn’t have come at a worst possible time. His life is in the midst of an upheaval. Newly divorced, he is heavy in debt with a child to raise. But he knows the clock is ticking. Someone who blatantly kills in this manner won’t stop.

Moving to the island five years ago, Ettie Harwell came with secrets. Secrets she had hoped never to reveal. Then, the haunting dreams returned. Night after night, visions pull her back into the world she’d prayed she’d never have to face again.

The murders have thrown Mason and Ettie together, plunging them into, not only the Dark Web but a dark world. They have no choice but to track down a demon-possessed killer before he strikes again…and time is running out.

Fragmented, the first book of Boston’s Crimes of Passion series, is a stand-alone romantic suspense.

forbidden, sexy office romance stand-alone from USA Today best-selling author Sedona Venez.

Jayla is trouble, and she’s just my type of woman.

I was damned when I watched her stroll into the office building her first day of work. In a matter of minutes, she shattered my control.

I’ve been obsessed with her bombshell body since that day.

But I’m her boss.

So, my fixation on her is totally inappropriate, especially when she hasn’t shown a bit of sexual interest in me—or so I thought … up until recently.

I’m a Dom, and I sense she is a natural submissive, albeit one who seems inexperienced with men. My instincts tell me that the right man can not only bring out her external beauty, but sexually awaken her as well.

Now that I’ve set my sights on her, I’m not going to back down until I get what I want.

And, as everyone in the office knows, I always get what I want.

As with all my books, this stand-alone is safe with no cheating and a guaranteed HEA.

The Valiant was supposed to save us. Instead, it triggered the end of the world.

Earth is in shambles. Everyone, even the poorest among us, invested in the Valiant’s space mining mission in the hopes we’d be saved from ourselves. But the second the ship leaves Earth’s atmosphere, our fate is sealed. The alien invasion begins. They pour into cities around the world through time portals, possessing humans, forcing us to kill one another.

And for whatever reason, my brother is their number one target.

Now the fate of the world lies in the hands of me, a seventeen-year-old girl, but with the help of my best friend, Justin―who’s suddenly starting to feel like more―maybe if we save my brother, we can save us all…

Gun for hire.

I didn’t care what you called it, the end result was always the same.

You paid me for a job, you got results. The Marines trained me to shoot, but life taught me to aim. Working for the best personal security firm in the business was a stepping stone. Put in my time, build the résumé, then move on. I didn’t do attachments, on any level.

Until a smoking-hot former one-night stand crossed the street in front of me, holding a kid who was my spitting image. She tried to play it off, deny he was mine. She said she didn’t remember me, right before she turned around and ran. She thought she’d made a clean escape.

But she was about to find out how merciless a bodyguard could be.

AUTHOR BIO:
Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.
