Amazon Companion by Robin Roseau

Maya Softpeace is a schoolteacher from the oceanside village of Gallen’s Cove in the world of Morehama. Gallen’s Cove is a peaceful village, except of course during winter gales.

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.

This is a fantasy novel of 142,000 words.

There Are No Men: A Romantic Comedy by Carol Maloney Scott

THERE ARE NO MEN is the debut novel of Carol Maloney Scott, a promising new addition to the romantic comedy/chick lit genre. Look for even more laugh out loud humor in 2015!

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?

Saved By You (The Islanders~Destiny Bay Romances Book 1) by Helen Conrad

DESTINY BAY ROMANCES-ISLANDERSby Helen Conrad, an award-winning, best-selling author (over 15 million books sold)Kane Carrington can’t resist a call for help from the girl he secretly loved in high school. He goes back to his Hawaiian home, only to find he’s still the “bad boy” to her golden girl image. But now he’s a man, not a boy and Annie Ventura can’t resist him. But does he have to destroy her memories of her dead husband in order to seal the deal?Contains love scenes.The books of this series are loosely connected.  Each can stand alone.  (Excerpt)Emotions were usually pretty deep with him. He didn’t like to let them get too near the surface. But for just a moment, he’d stopped and turned slowly, taking it all in, remembering a past that could never be again, missing it, missing home and actually feeling a slight stinging in his eyes. And that was when she got him.”Okay, you bastard, hold it right there. Don’t make a move.”At the same moment the voice hit him, both barrels of a shotgun were jammed very hard and very painfully into the small of his back, and he groaned in disbelief. He hadn’t even heard her coming up behind him. He shook his head. He was losing it.”I’d like to blast a hole right through you. How would you like that, you slime ball?””Hey, hold on just a minute…”The barrel jabbed him. “Don’t try to talk, dirt bag. Just start walking. I’m going to walk you right off my land, and then I’m going to call the cops. And the next time you come slinking around I’m going to blow your brains out. You got that?” She jabbed him again to get him going toward the road. “And you can tell Bart Carlson I’ll do the same for any other of his pathetic flunkies that he sends over here to screw up my life.”It took only one quick twist and a little leverage, and he had her on the ground, his big body holding hers down, the shotgun wrenched from her grasp and sent spinning in the dust.But that didn’t mean she gave up. Not by any means. She fought like a wildcat, spitting and scratching at him with fury. It took both his hands to hold down hers, and the full length of his body to hold her captive.”Cut it out, Annie,” he growled at her, annoyed that she wasn’t giving up even once she’d realized his superior strength. “I’m not going to hurt you.”The sound of her name was what seemed to still her for a moment. She stared up at him and he stared down at her, wondering if she had any idea that they had known each other before.She’d changed. But her hair was still blond, still a mass of shimmering tangles that seemed to go on forever. Her body was still slim and lithe, but there was a strength to her he wouldn’t have thought she would ever possess. She was still squirming beneath him, but it was beginning to feel good. He glanced at her cotton blouse, all askew and revealing the soft curve of her breast and a tiny strip of lace.”Don’t,” she spat at him fiercely.He looked up. Her face was older, naturally. The crystal blue eyes he remembered so vividly were wary, haunted by pain and struggle she couldn’t have dreamed of in her younger days. And she wasn’t laughing. In his memories, she was always laughing.There was no sign of recognition. Didn’t anybody remember him? Had he been erased from the minds of an entire community?

LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO by KELVIN F JACKSON

A CLASSIC TALE REBORN

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
bedroom window.

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.

Mainly moving her out of the hood

. Well now the hood had come to her safe haven and it was time to teach motherfuckers a lesson. Don’t
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
crashing in.

TEACH ME HOW TO LOVE show me the way to surrender my heart-Girl I’m So lost-Blared on the
stereo.

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.

“Extremely powerful read—the truth is I feel wholeheartedly connected with these characters and their story. I think everyone should read this book, especially those who enjoy angst, as this story is FILLED with it..” ~Katie Love Romance Books

“It’s been a LONG time since I’ve savored a story. This book was beyond amazing…it was more than words can describe. It flowed beautifully and was written masterfully. This was my first historical romance and I cannot wait to read books 2 & 3.” ~Bethany HEA Bookshelf

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?
