Electric Candle
When a vampire finds his soulmate, the bond is forever. It's love at first sight. Or is it? Homicide Detective Jonas Forge has been a vampire for centuries. He's fought wars, seen life go from the simple colonial days to the modern high-tech world. He's evolved with the times, adapted to each new era, blended into each new life. The one constant is his best friend, mentor, and lover, Declan. Even though not fated to bond as soulmates, Forge and Declan are happy and settled in their life together. Until Forge's real soulmate falls, literally, into his life. Forge isn't thrilled with the guy, despite the pheromones attracting them to each other, and the feeling seems mutual. While trying to adjust to his clumsy soulmate and equally awkward feelings, Forge is also on the hunt for a serial-killer witnesses can't identify who's leaving a trail of bodies in its wake. Will the bond Forge is finally forming with his soulmate be destroyed when the hunter becomes the victim? If you like fated mates who aren't perfect for each other, a paranormal killer who might not be caught and found families then you'll love Elizabeth Noble's Electric Candle.
Dead Pretty
LIMITED EDITION COVER! EBOOK ON SALE FOR $0.99! From New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle comes a gripping psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. I'd once believed that nothing would equal the pain of losing my parents. I was wrong. I had barely even begun to process their deaths when it started. The love notes, flowers, gifts … all anonymously left on my porch. Then, I opened my door to a dead bird. At first, I thought it had died naturally. I knew that wasn't the case when I found my neighbor's cat the next day. Then, the murders started. The victims … women who looked eerily similar to me. I had a stalker. A murderous one. And I had no clue who he was. He never showed me his face. Not even when he carved his final message into me. I survived that night. But my life was over. It had ended the moment Tobias Ripley's infatuation with me began. So, I changed my name and moved away. Now, I live a life of solitude. I don't make connections with anyone. Until Jack Canti walks into my life with his sharp eyes and easy smiles. Only Jack isn't the man he says he is. And when the murders start again, I'm left wondering if it's a copycat. Or worse … What if Tobias wasn't the real killer after all … and the murderer has been right here with me all along?
Age Of Druids
Clíodhna has three children and a missing husband, and now finds herself in the middle of growing quarrels with the new church. When she encounters a strange man in the woods near her house, she discovers a kindred soul, someone to teach her to harness her own innate talents and powers. At the new church, she develops a friendship with one of the monks, and shares many conversations with him about life, philosophy, and theology. For once, it seems her life is becoming a thing to be savored rather than a thing to simply survive. Her new teacher, however, clashes with the ideals of the church. Her relationship with the monk is another source of conflict when a new church leader arrives. A few rash decisions means she must now change her own fate. That means choosing between her happiness—perhaps even her life—and her family. It might be better for all involved if she leaves her children with a trusted friend and disappears into another world. Can she flee a bad situation, leaving her children to the mercies of fate? Or does she have the power and ability to face the danger herself?
Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd.
A deadly virus, a rogue time machine. Can a retired Time Agent brush up her skills before the clock runs out on the world? Retired First Nations Temporal Agent Wilda Firestone wants nothing more than to run her Toronto costume shop for Time Tourists, spoil her cat, and drink her coffee. Her world is shaken when a deathly ill rogue time traveler falls on her doorstep and Wilda is dragged back into the fray to find the plague's source. As she traces the traveler's footsteps through time with her assistant, Mattea, they must travel to the luxurious court of Mansa Musa, the dark forests of pre-Columbian America, and fight against the heartbreak of true love. As they navigate politics, camels, and bandits, events take a dire turn when Wilda and Mattea discover a much larger conspiracy. As they get closer to the plague's source, they unearth a smuggling ring, get entangled in a convoluted coup, and discover horrific carnage. Just as Wilda gets close to the truth, she's imprisoned in a 12th century Norse stronghold by an unstable Jarl. When another rogue traveler jeopardizes both her escape plan and her mission, Wilda is in danger of losing herself in the depths of her own deliberately forgotten past. Can Wilda trace the deadly infection's source before the plague takes her down? Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd. is the first book of an exciting new series, the Toronto Time Agents. "If you like strong, quirky female characters, rich historical settings, and intriguing twists, you'll love Christy Nicholas' fun and action-packed adventure" - Patrick Thomas, author of Fairy Rides The Lightning and the Murphy's Lore series Buy Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd. to explore ancient worlds from your Kindle today!

BOOK REVIEWS
Beyond the Sea
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars rounding up L.H. Cosway's BEYOND THE SEA is an interesting one--and one that situates itself smack right between the well-known gothic tales: I see the naive, innocent Estella Shannon in the Northanger Abbey's Catherine Morland, Noah Dylan...

Hidden
| Contemporary Romance

One reason i always come back to Laura Griffin is that she delivers. Once again, HIDDEN is the perfect blend of suspense, a great plot and mystery that keeps you guessing. It's just the romance that's a bit lacking for me...plus the lies and omissions...

Weapons Master
| Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic

WEAPONS MASTER is quite a ride; think of an amusement park ride hat takes you through a mish-mash of action-adventure classic films and tv series and you'd have Anna Hackett's Galactic Gladiators in a nutshell. As someone who's been held as a slave...

Agony
| Contemporary Romance

AGONY by Kaylee Ryan is an angst-fest from start to end; having gone into this without realising that this is a duet made it worse because it ends on an unhappy cliffhanger, despite you know that this has an HEA down the end of the line when the second...

Hell & Back
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars rounding up... What starts out as sabotage--with vague implications for world security that's not brought any further than that--turns into a murder mystery in the brutal cold. Set mostly in the deep, chilly region of Antarctica, HARD LINE...

A Rogue of One's Own

A ROGUE OF ONE'S OWN is all that I expected of Evie Dunmore and more. Coming on the heels of her first book, which was a tough act to follow, this book more than lived up to it. I wasn't all that enamored of Lucie at first, but she grew on me over...

Well Met

A Casual Glance
