But one day, the peace is broken by a band of Amazon women, who round up the villagers. “This village has broken our centuries-old agreement,” the head Amazon explains. “We keep you safe from the demons that would overrun this world, and for that, you must tithe to us so that we may be free to keep the demons at bay.” And tithe, it turns out, includes fresh Amazon recruits.
Maya finds herself the most unwilling of recruits taken away from Gallen’s Cove, and soon finds herself bound to Malora, the Amazon queen, as her companion. Maya, a schoolmarm at heart, struggles with the Amazon life and finds herself failing for the first time in her life, failing to fit in to the new lifestyle expected of her.
And then Maya meets her first demon.

Divorced thirty-something Claire doesn’t know who’s in her dating pool—but she’s doing her best to avoid shark infested waters. Leaving her clueless and insensitive husband behind was a smart move after losing her fertility, but now she’s riding the wave of flying toupees, strange men in leather thongs and drunken nights in painfully impractical shoes. Claire desperately wanted to be a mother, but now she’ll settle for one middle aged man worthy of a second date.
After a long drought, men are flooding her shores and she’s drowning in choices. There’s Justin, the 25-year-old IT boy-genius with the GQ looks and cougar fetish, who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. A woman would have to be a blind, lesbian nun not to fall for him, but he reminds Claire of her wasted youth. And then the charming but mysterious Dr. Nathan appears, but he’s cheating on her with his medical mistress—a demanding cardiology practice.
To further rock her boat, Claire’s ‘stable’ career in publishing has been tossed about by her floundering company’s launch of a new line of trendy, salacious books. Cookbooks aren’t selling these days, but erotica is flying off the shelves—and challenging Claire’s attitude about sex, work . . . and her tempestuous new life.
When her best friend convinces her to buddy up to the aspiring writer who just moved in across the street, Claire rejects the idea—he has already caught her in more than one embarrassing and scantily clad situation. Giving in to her friend’s nudging, she tries to ignore the details she discovers about him, including his hard rock night gig and his mesmerizing blue eyes, in the hopes his literary talents can pull her publishing house up from the bottom of the ocean.
Claire’s dilemma begs the question: Are there NO men or TOO MANY?
Destiny Love and her son Jayonne are thrown into turmoil when a home invasion goes terribly wrong. Caught in the middle of snakes greed and decietful conspiracy, Destiny and her son are forced to go on the run from one of the most notoriously feared gangsters in Brooklyn.
It was 2:30 in the morning and she had finally pacified her two year old son Jayonne to sleep. Musiq
Soulchild’s CD was spinning on her stereo system and teach me how to love was playing at a low volume.
As Dez sat on the side of her bed finishing off the last of her blunt, she heard voices whispering outside of her
She looked over at Jayonne sleeping quietly in his crib as she put out her blunt, reached over and
grabbed the AK47 propped on the wall next to her bed. She knew the day that she unwillingly inherited her
cousin Hova’s enterprise that this day would soon come. She grabbed the remote and turned up the stereo.
When she turned off the light in the bedroom she sat on the floor next to the bed facing the bedroom
door and braced the stock of the assault rifle against the wall to cushion the recoil. It had been three months
since the Feds had arrested Hova and left her holding 3 kilo’s and $47,000 in her house where he kept his
stash. Dez was well known as Hova’s favorite Cousin and felt obligated to hold him down because he’d
done so much for her and Jayonne.

Fuck with Destiny! Dez figured that they’d probably got into the front door easily enough because she
always kept it unlocked when she was home. She felt that if you couldn’t feel safe at home, you couldn’t
feel safe anywhere. The two masked gunmen approaching her bedroom door were caught off guard by the
music and too stupid to realize there was something strange about the front door being unlocked.
“I didn’t hear music when we passed by the window, but I did smell weed smoke. You think she is in
there getting some dick?” questioned BG.
“I don’t know but I’d like to fuck that fine ass bitch! After we take her money, I might take that pussy
too!” said Jake.
“But what if she is in there with somebody?”
“Then we’ll just have to smoke whoever the fuck it is!”
As they made their way to the bedroom door the light in the hallway alerted Dez to exactly how close
they were to the door by the shadows of their feet. Her heart hammered in her chest as she loaded a round
into the chamber anticipating her bedroom door being kicked in. As her eyes narrowed in anger she was
thinking these bastards want to violate my home and threaten me and my baby’s life? Time for them to die!
She looked over at Jayonne sleeping in his crib and said “mommy loves you” as the bedroom door came

The light from the hallway filled one side of the room, but Destiny was off to the side of the empty bed in
the shadows unseen. They stood with guns pointed at the empty bed confused looking like target practice
dummies. Destiny pulled the trigger and the small room turned into Vietnam.
“Brrrraat! Braat! Brrrrraat!” screamed the chopper ripping both men literally in half with two sweeps.
The shorter of the two went the quickest and was dead before he hit the ground. As he lay on the
carpeted floor his eyes were stuck open from shock beneath the black ski mask. There were large smoking
holes and splattered blood stains on the wall where BG had been standing. As Dez slowly walked forward
and stood over BG holding the assault rifle pointed at his head, she noticed his eyes were still open. She
removed the .380 from her double D honey complexion tits and put 2 slugs between his eyes.

How do you fight against fate? You don’t. You can’t. You can only surrender to fate in Jacelyn Rye’s new release!
Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.
For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.
Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.
Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.
Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.
Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it’s with another.
But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself.
Sarah and Will hold tightly to their past, but steadfast promises begin to wane. Life continues, filled with romance, drama, and two souls yearning to understand the challenges brought with coming of age, and learning that fate is ultimately in control. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?

One last momentous beating ends with two deaths and changes Gabriella’s life forever. She stumbles away within an inch of her own life and begins a journey to an unexpected southern home which is none other than Lulu’s Café, where she tries to mend her severed spirit. Lulu is the petite charismatic southern belle, who wisely takes on the challenge of helping the young woman heal. She enlists the support of the enchanting southern gentleman, Crowley J. Mason IV, whose ocean blue eyes seem to hypnotize Leah (as they know her) from the start.
Leah is an unwanted stranger in Crowley’s quaint southern town of Rivertown, South Carolina. He holds her at arm’s length as he tries to decipher the mystery of her recent past, but before the young lawyer realizes it, he finds Leah tucked protectively in his arms. He wants nothing more than to help her heal…if she would just trust enough to let him in.

As her determination to find justice for an innocent victim drives her on, she can feel the heat from the bullets flying in her direction. No stranger to trouble, Zoe just might find herself in over her head this time.
