Blurb



Jesse’s only priority in life is protecting the people he loves, so he’s determined to see Rowan Harbor’s wards rebuilt. There’s just one problem: they’re missing an ingredient that can’t be ordered online.


Jesse volunteers to search for the missing component in the realm of the fae, but his boyfriend, Sean, isn’t letting him go alone. The town has an enemy among the fae, so they’ll need to keep a low profile. Along their way, they find unexpected allies, surprising enemies, and a whole host of problems.


The journey is a test of their endurance, but also of their relationship and their faith in each other. Can they find what they need and get back home in one piece in time for the summer solstice?

Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.


If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.

It’s Noshavember or NaNoWriMo month!

Sometimes it’s both, lol! I’m going to be short and sweet! I’m on my way to Omaha Nebraska and I’m leaving in the snow. Ugh. I hope that goes away, but I can’t guarantee it. Guess I’ll see! Google says it is an 8 hour drive. I figure 10 hour. If it is snowy, who knows! It may change my plans on when to leave to get home. We’ll see. I’ll be safe either way.

In the meantime, check out the two anthologies I’m in!

Destiny Whispers

A collection of short love stories to warm the heart. Compiled by four authors, all proceeds from the sale of this collection will be donated to a charity which supports homeless veterans.

Broken Prince Charming by Beverly Ovalle
I lost my way. Discharged, broken, I sought comfort from a bottle. A lot of bottles. I wore a mantle of guilt that I had survived, while most of my buddies died. My life spirals downward. Rock bottom is ugly. I realize I need help and reach out for it. Hidden among the homeless and despair is a bright light, with milk chocolate skin, bright blue eyes and a smile that cheers my soul.
Grace. She smiles and carriers a beacon of hope within her. Despite circumstances that would bring anyone else down, she forges her own path. A path different from her mother’s. Determined to support herself and leave the shelter behind, she has a plan. Nothing and no one will stop her.
She deserves a fresh start, and I’ll help her get it. Even if it means I’m left behind.

Finding a Memory by Mona Casey
When a young medium moves into a historical home with her husband, she meets the resident souls. Souls who lived during the turn of the century and found a sweet forbidden relationship. During their time on earth, it was unheard of for a single caucasian woman to live unsupervised with her African American butler and driver but that didn’t stop them. Their story is timeless and heartwarming with a tragedy tossed in.

On the Home Front by Tina Susedik
War is Over!
With a shout, radio host Erna Huber gave the battle cry that brought hope back to all the women waiting for news of their husbands, sons, and fathers. World War II was finally at an end, but what does that mean for all the women that kept America running while the men were away?
Ben Peters was one of those returning servicemen that was simply trying to find his place in the tumultuous social climate after returning from the Pacific, when one night during a chance meeting at the roller rink, he just so happened to bump into Erna. With her sharp wit, and bombshell appearance he was hooked from the get-go.
Can they successfully navigate the war between the sexes on the home front? Or will their relationship prove to be more than either one of them bargained for?
You know what they say, all’s fair in love and war.

The Oasis by Teresa Keefer
Ally had found her respite after the loss of her fiance in Afghanistan. Living with her grandfather in the Mojave desert and running his cafe and convenience store keeps her busy, even if it doesn’t keep her mind off the young man she lost. Her world is about to get mixed up when a wandering man shows up at their doorstep in the midst of a dust storm. His story is much like her own in that he also lost someone he loved in Afghanistan. Will his unwanted advice and kindness move Ally forward with her life after the devastating loss she had endured?

The Road to Eden by Beverly Ovalle

The civilization of Jannat Adn was slowly dying. Unable to procreate they searched the galaxy looking for compatible civilizations. They find one. It’s Earth. Not only are earthlings compatible, but gene markers show a common ancestor.

Pavolok is amazed at how different life on Earth is. Tasked with safely bringing aboard colonists, the Storm Area 51 Raid is the perfect opportunity to round them up. When the US Military tests a weapon on their own citizens, he steps in to save them. What he doesn’t expect is his body’s reaction to one of the human women. Her purple hair and violet eyes draw him instantly to her.

Amy joined the raid for the heck of it, along with her siblings. Naruto running and clapping cheeks appeals to her sense of humor. It’s not that she believes in aliens, just why miss the chance if they really are there? Transported to a space ship that really doesn’t live up to her expectations, she can’t seem to keep her hands off Pavolok.

Amy hadn’t planned on having an alien in her life, but once she clapped him, she’s not willing to give him up.

I finished my beer and stood. “Crystal, listen. I know you don’t understand, and I know you don’t care, but this is really important to me. Would you please just consider letting in the possibility of change? Could you just open your heart up the tiniest bit to the magic of Christmas and see what happens?”

She said nothing.

Son of a Nutcracker.

It was a risky move, but I knew what I had to do. I had to leave her something to remember me by.

I snapped my fingers, and a tree appeared in the corner of the living room, covered in colored lights and adorned with brightly colored glass balls. The topper of course, was a jolly Santa, made to my likeness, with a red velvet suit, and real leather boots.

Her eyes widened then narrowed as she scowled at me.

“Pretty, isn’t it?” I snapped my fingers again, and a handful of wrapped presents appeared beneath it. “There’s gifts in those you know,” I whispered. “Technically, you’re not supposed to open them until Christmas, but you’re already on the naughty list, so I say go for it.”

Still nothing. My heart sank, and I realized I two weeks may not be enough time. This woman was practically dead inside when it came to Christmas. I snapped my fingers again, going for the full effect this time. Decorations covered every inch of her house now, and a fire roared to life in a fireplace underneath a mantle adorned with festive decor and brightly colored stockings.

Instead of looking charmed or excited, she stopped and scowled at me. “Will you please stop? It’s going to take me forever to undo this mess you’ve made.” She stomped her foot. “Stop it right now.”

“Not until you agree to let me come back tomorrow, and take you on a date. A Christmas date,” I elaborated. “It has to be a date doing something Christmasy.”

“Ugh, why would I do that?” she groaned. “I don’t even know you.”

I snapped my fingers again, and the house filled with the smells of Christmas as a tray of cookies, and candies, and even fruit cake appeared in the center of the table. Next to it were two huge glasses of fresh egg nog.

Her jaw worked back and forth as she took in the fragrant display of delectable treats. She was angry, I could tell, but also tempted. I couldn’t blame her. My mother’s cookies were pretty fabulous. Crystal stayed strong. I reached over and picked up a cookie in the shape of a tree, groaning loudly as I bit into it.

Chewing slowly and expectantly, I watched her for any sign of breaking but she gave none.

She was playing hardball. That was fine. I could play too.

I held my fingers up as if to snap them. “My next two moves are my head elf and a live reindeer. I’d think about giving in if I were you,” I warned.

My most important job as Santa is to rid the world of non-believers of all ages. But first, I have to make one of them my wife.

Crystal spent her entire life avoiding Christmas, and I have only two weeks to convince her otherwise. She is stubborn, but I am determined.

She will learn the magic of Christmas either on Santa’s lap, or over it.

The fate of Christmas depends on it.

Eskara has been enslaved to the evil warlock Garamond for the last three years, and tonight, on her eighteenth birthday, she is doomed to become a sacrifice for one of Garamond’s spells. She doesn’t want to die, but she is resigned to her fate.

Until Emmett steals her away, that is. The hot, gruff woodcutter doesn’t know why he’s drawn to the young witch, but when he sees an evil old man trying to kill her, he has to intervene. Emmett inadvertently claims Eskara, and he has to consummate before the sun goes down or they both die. But when Garamond uses his great power to steal Eskara away again, how can Emmett ensure she is safe, permanently?

Note: The bad guy is a total bastard. This 12,000-word short story contains much unpleasantness. If you prefer lighter stories, this one’s probably not for you

“First, you need to be cleansed on the inside,” he said. He led her to the magic workroom, where he crafted spells. Heart sinking, Eskara saw a stand with a square bag attached to it. A pipe ran down from it. She hated enemas.

“Why did I put ginger in the enema, girl?” He fired questions like this at her all the time. An incorrect answer would be followed by punishment. Her ass clenched at the fact there was ginger in the enema. She hated ginger. It burned worse than anything else. But she knew she had to answer his question. She had expected the enema to mean they were summoning the Water Elemental, since all four elements had to be called for the ritual to work, but clearly Garamond had other ideas.

“Because we need to invoke the Fire Elemental for the great bonfire tonight, Master,” she replied dutifully. Her stomach was filled with angry bees.

“Correct. Get into position,” he ordered. She knew, by now, how to kneel for an enema. She got down on her hands and knees, then pressed her head to the floor and thrust her bottom up so the liquid would flow into her more easily. Her clit twitched as it always did when she had to take a submissive position. She hated that her body responded to this.

Something cold and fibrous pressed against the opening to her bottom. She gasped at the first bite.

“I carved the nozzle for your enema from a fresh root of ginger,” Garamond remarked. Of course. That pesky fire elemental caused Garamond to do some of the worst things. He must have drilled through the center of the root to ensure the enema would flow through it. Evil burning fire filled Eskara’s bottom as she felt him pushing at the root, until it found its place as she began to shake and cry.

Then, the warm liquid began to flow. At first, she was relieved because it distracted her from the burning in her ring of muscle. However, after several seconds, she realized the ginger inside the enema was doing something much worse to her body.

Rended Hearts ~ Riza Curtis

 

 
Length: 35,000 words approx.
 
Blurb
 

After a life on the run, witch Gabriel just wants to enjoy having a home. He’s perfectly happy pottering around his garden and using magic to quietly help people. Then the Alpha of the local wolf pack is attacked by a member of the local coven, and everything changes. There’s no love lost between the witch and the wolves, but Gabriel saves the life of the Alpha in an attempt to keep the peace.


Simon finds his mate in the witch that saves his life, but the coven is coming for Gabriel, and they don’t care who gets in their way…

Excerpt



“That’s better.” Simon couldn’t help his own smile after seeing Gabriel’s joy. His face was flushed pink from laughing, and he looked radiant in the soft light of the clinic.


“What is?”


Simon took a chance and moved closer. Gabriel’s eyes widened as he startled, but he didn’t seem alarmed. “Seeing you smile.”


Gabriel flushed a deeper red, a hint of confusion displayed on his face.


Simon took another step closer so that he was face-to-face with a flustered Gabriel. He brought his hand up to gently touch the side of the Gabriel’s face. His skin was softer than Simon had thought possible.


“Are you—” Gabriel broke off the sentence and moved back. Simon dropped his hand immediately. He didn’t want to make Gabriel uncomfortable.


Gabriel glanced at Simon and took a hesitant breath. Simon tried to look reassuring.


“Forgive me if I’m wrong, but you’re flirting with me? Why?”


Simon chuckled. Gabriel was adorable. “Because I like you.”


Gabriel frowned before glancing away. He didn’t seem satisfied with the answer.


“But wolves have mates,” he interjected.


Simon’s eyes widened momentarily. He hadn’t thought Gabriel would know about mates, but maybe this would be a good thing—maybe Gabriel would be more receptive, more understanding about the situation.


“Why do you think I am flirting with you?” Simon asked, dropping his voice to no louder than a whisper, soft and alluring.


Gabriel inhaled sharply, and his eyes widened. “Surely not?”


Simon didn’t know if that was positive or negative, but he couldn’t take it back now. He nodded, moving closer and crowding Gabriel against the wall.


“Don’t you feel it too?” he asked. “My mate?”

STORM CROSSED

                               

The latest stand-alone novel in Dani Harper’s Grim Series will delight old and new fans alike, transporting them to the ancient fae realm beneath the modern human world, where magic rules and menace abounds . . .

 

Heir to a noble fae house, Trahern is forced to watch helplessly as his twin brother is cruelly changed into a grim—a death dog—as punishment for falling in love with the wrong person. Trahern doesn’t believe love exists, but he will do anything to keep his brother alive—even join the Wild Hunt and ride the night skies of the human world.

 

Lissy Santiago-Callahan believes in love but has no time for it. She’s busy juggling her career as an academic and her home life as a single mom to a young son with Asperger’s. Her hectic life in sleepy Eastern Washington is made even more chaotic with the sudden arrival of a demanding fae and his unusual “dog.”

 

Mortal and immortal have nothing in common, and the attraction between Lissy and Trahern surprises them both. But when their desire places Lissy and her child in the path of a deadly faery feud, will the connection last, or will their separate worlds prove too great a divide?

 

Storm Crossed releases January 9th. It’s available for pre-order in Kinde eBook, paperback, and audio at https://www.amazon.com/Storm-Crossed-Grim-Book-4-ebook/dp/B073TTTGZD
