The Secrets of Hawthorne House by Donald Firesmith

 

The Secrets of Hawthorne House

by Donald Firesmith

Matt's life changes forever when a family of druids moves into the dilapidated Victorian mansion next door. The story of an unlikely friendship, the clash of two completely different cultures, secret magic, and a search for the lost Hawthorne treasure.

Fifteen-year-old Matt Mitchell was having the worst summer imaginable. Matt’s misery started when a drunk driver killed his mother. Then his father moved him and his twin sister to the small town of Hawthorne in rural Indiana, as far as his grieving father could take from the ocean that Matt's mother had loved. At the new high school, three bullies are determined to make Matt miserable. And to top it off, Matt learns that the recluse who lives in the 'haunted house" next door is none other than Old Lady Hawthorne, the town’s infamous witch and murderer. Matt’s terrible summer is turning into an awful autumn when something quite unexpected happens. Old Lady Hawthorne’s niece and her three children arrive, and Matt meets Gerallt.

By the final week of October, the tall oaks lining Hawthorne Drive had reached the peak of their colors, and the first yellow leaves slowly tumbled down to lie on lawns and sidewalks. All along Hawthorne Drive, the modest one- and two-story houses had been turned into happy Halloween haunts. Throughout the neighborhood, bright orange lights framed windows and doors, and small fluttering ghosts hung from the branches of many of the smaller trees in peoples’ yards. Black plastic spiders sat on the cottony cobwebs that shrouded every bush, while jolly Jack-O-Lanterns stood silent guard at every porch. Front yards had become grave yards, and the occasional inept witch hung where she’d crashed headlong into a tree or the side of a house.

Yet the morning of Halloween had arrived with no change to Hawthorne House, making it appear decidedly underdressed with no sign of Halloween decorations.

“So Gerallt, doesn’t your family celebrate Halloween?” Matt asked as the Hawthorne children joined Tina and him at the bus stop. “You haven’t put up any decorations, and I haven’t heard you mention it all month.”

“Of course we observe Halloween, only we call it Samhain,” Gerallt said, exchanging cautious glances with his sister. Unlike Wiccans, who pronounce the holiday as Sow-in, Gerallt pronounced the Gaelic word meaning the end of summer as Sahm-wan. “It’s just that for us, the holiday doesn’t start until dusk and we always wait until then tah decorate.”

“Tonight is very special tah us,” Gwyneth added solemnly.

“It’s our new year,” Gerallt continued. “We have a feast tah welcome the spirits of those who will be born in the comin’ year and tah celebrate the lives of those who have passed in the previous year. Tonight, we’ll celebrate the life of our fathah and welcome his spirit when he visits us from the Spirit World…”

Before Matt could decide how to respond to Gerallt’s unexpected expectation that his father’s ghost was going to visit him, Gareth said, “Samhain ‘s my favorite holiday. I love trick-or-treatin’ and all the candy. Can I go with you and Gerallt tonight? Please? I promise not tah be a bothah or anything. Please, Matt?”

A geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books, written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers, and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He's also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered somewhat by his fear that the term "distinguished" makes him sound like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer whose beard is still slightly more red than gray.

By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his wife Becky, and his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.

Say You Love Me

Eva Rae Thomas Mysteries Book 4

by Willow Rose

 

Former FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas is back and embedded in a true nightmare reaching deep into her own family.

What would you do if your brother was accused of a horrible crime, and you were certain he didn’t do it?

Life is not done throwing Eva Rae Thomas curveballs.

A phone call turns her life upside down – once again. The call is from her father, the man she hasn’t seen in thirty-six years, not since he kidnapped her sister in a supermarket.

Now, he is back in Florida, and he needs her help. Her younger brother – who she didn’t know existed – has been arrested on Amelia Island. The boy is in a coma after being shot by an officer during the incident. But his father doesn’t believe the police, and he asks for Eva Rae’s help to prove it.

At the same time, a serial killer is planning one of the most horrific mass killings in history.

Will Eva Rae find it in her heart to help her father after what he did to her? Will facing him again set her free or pull her under?

SAY YOU LOVE ME is the fourth book in the Eva Rae Thomas Mystery Series and can be read as a standalone.

My Neighbor's Keeper

Charlie Henson Book 1

by Louy Castonguay

"My Neighbor’s Keeper," the first in a series, is centered on retired paramedic Mrs. Charlotte Henson, aka Charlie or Mrs. H. She’s sixty years old and a widow. Her husband, a former police officer, was run down by a drunk driver three years before. Charlie befriends shy six-year-old Bert, from next door. One evening, Bert comes to her door, dirty, tattered and crying. His mother won’t wake up and his two younger sisters, he says, are hungry. Charlie runs to the rescue, and ends up embroiled in a murder. Bert’s mother is crumpled at the foot of the cellar stairs. When Charlie realizes she’s under surveillance, she sneaks out the back door and down to the river, where her canoe is kept. She gets out on the river, at night, in a rainstorm, goes upriver and travels to a cabin hidden in the woods in order to buy time to solve the crime. Along her journey, she makes friends, and also gets help from her husband’s niece, Louise.

I am a double graduate from UMF. My first degree in 1989 was in Community Nutrition, with a minor in chemistry, the better to plot murders. My second degree, in 1994, was for the newly developed BFA in Creative Writing but had to be fluent in a foreign language. I'm Franco American, so aced that.
I have worked at various jobs throughout Central Maine, including shoe shops, egg plants, wool mills, office jobs, finally spending time as a volunteer driver for Community Concepts. Life experiences along the way have given much material for my books.
I am currently hard at work on the series, doing promotional activities and hope to have a web site up soon.  I'm also running a blog, Keeper Series, to keep my reader's abreast of my progress. I hope to have the next volume out by April.

None of Our Hands Are Clean

by Ralph Thompson Jr.

Juan Smith is a young man looking for love, in a world where the concept of romance has lost much of its luster. Darlene Brown is a young lady trying to understand God’s purpose for her future.

How do people address the question “who’s the right one for you?” The wreckage of failed relationships is everywhere. Darlene and Juan face near-impossible odds. How do they get to know each other, and how will they learn whether or not they should be a couple?

by Ralph Thompson Jr.

Rick Bass is a junior at a southern commuter college. When he meets Elenore he is immediately attracted to her reserved yet captivating ways. When Rick finds himself in a dangerous situation far beyond his ability to cope, he uses drastic measures that change the direction of his otherwise dull, uneventful life and may cause him the girl of his dreams. Rick’s careless and thoughtless actions bring tragic results, yet he still believes God endorsed his plan. From the writer of “None of Our Hands Are Clean,” Ralph Thompson, Jr. tells a story of a young man who knows of God but is unsure about God’s direction in his life when things get out of hand. Is God truly the orchestrator when one choice leads to a life time of consequences?

Fall of the Western Kings by J Drew Brumbaugh

 

Child of Evil

Tirumfall Trilogy Book 2

The story started with "Fall of the Western Kings". Now "Child of Evil" continues the odyssey of Gant, the hero who killed Varg with his magical sword Valorious and who must now use his strength and cunning to find and neutralize the child born of evil. This child is prophesized to lead the demons of the western kingdoms to victory over the people of the east. Other characters accompany Gant to Ferd, the city where the child will be born. Amelia is a shape-changer who flies to the west to do reconnaissance only to be captured and imprisoned. Pris, the emperor and blossoming wizard, worries about the evil forces and knows the child cannot be allowed to unite the demonic powers. His untested magic will be key to stopping the impending doom. Dalphnia, Gant’s wife, is a woodland nymph who can control the trees of the forest and is determined to see her husband come through this journey alive. Can this unlikely group intervene in time to stop the child and the carnage that is sure to follow? Will it mean killing the child? Resolving this moral dilemma while outwitting the demons and getting back to the safety of their homes makes for a rousing adventure. "Child of Evil" is the second book in J. Drew Brumbaugh’s fantasy series, The Tirumfall Triology.

I live in northeast Ohio where I write sci-fi, fantasy, and suspense novels, along with a few short stories. Mostly I write stories I think I'd like to read with characters that are interesting enough that readers want to find out what happens to them. I also spend time teaching and training at the karate dojo my wife and I founded, building a Japanese garden in the back yard, and taking walks in the woods with our dog. I have six novels in print, the most recent being "Bula Bridge," a collection of short stories, and a co-authored children’s book. I continue to work on my next book and seem to always have several stories in various stages of completion.

Curse of the Gods

The Irish Gods Book 3

 

Amory Wright’s world is changing. Her son is off to college and her husband, Steven, has accepted a new job that moves them to Dublin. There, she begins to work for David Abernathy, owner of Love Spot. It’s her first real job—outside of being mom—and she discovers there’s more to herself than the country club veneer she has cultivated in the past.

David sees this too, and his charm and good looks tempt her in ways she’s never been tempted before. To make things worse, Amory suspects Steven’s trips for work may be cover for yet another affair.

As her life spirals out of control, she discovers that the person she is attracted to is more than a man: he’s the God of Sex, and he wants her to see him for who he truly is. And maybe—just maybe—she can break the centuries-old curse that haunts him to this day.

God of the Sea

The Irish Gods Book 2

 

God of the Sea, book 2 in the Irish Gods series, tells the tale of Ellie Selkirk―elementary school teacher, bartender, and one-time Seer. She has left the world of gods and magic behind and settled into an ordinary life. Gods are just too much trouble, and even worse, they’re dangerous.

Her life—and summer vacation—is upended when she meets Gareth Keir, front man for the band DeDanu and god of nothing. Intrigued by Gareth, Ellie decides to see where this romance will go, thinking it’ll amount to little more than a summer fling. Fate has other plans, though, and when Gareth’s brother, Declan, stumbles into the scene, injured and chased by Hunters, Ellie must decide how far she is willing to go make the man she loves the god he is destined to be, even if it means revisiting her own dark past.

Gods and Mortals

The Irish Gods Book 1

by D.S. Dehel

 

Maeve Devlin has no idea what to expect when she travels to Ireland for a vacation, but definitely not the supernatural or an old god obsessed with her. What should be a fun time reconnecting with an old love interest first turns thrilling, then confusing, when two men seem interested in a fling. And what’s with all the birds?

But when The Man with eyes like the sea— the man she’s dreamed of her entire life—appears, her life spirals out of control, and she’s thrust into a world of gods and heroes, magic and love. When gods and mortals collide, nothing goes well.

Gods and Mortals, the first book in the Irish Gods series, introduces us to modern day Ireland, a place where the old and new exists side by side, and the old gods mingle with mankind. It tells the tale of Maeve Devlin and the man she was destined for, and the one god daring to claim her for his very own.

Misadventures in Auckland by Barbara Russell

 

The Girl with the Dragon-Raccoon

Misadventures in Auckland Book 4

While other fifteen-year-old girls dream about having a blood-sucking boyfriend like in Twilight, Tyro has nightmares about vampires. 

She has her share of vampires, zombies, and werewolves because her mum is a dentist who attends to these monsters’ teeth. 

So, when her mother and a vampire client disappear from the dental clinic, leaving only a trail of blood, trashed furniture, and ripped clothes behind, Tyro suspects one of the monsters kidnapped them or worse that the vampire attacked her mum. 

Either way, she’s in deep crap. 

The police don’t believe her, and Jack, the vanished vampire’s son, wants to take Tyro to Underworld City where hags, zombies, and all kind of were-beings live. He plans to talk with the underworld police that control supernatural creatures. 

That’s his chance to show her that not every monster is a thug, and perhaps, she’ll accept his invitation for the Disemboweller Ball. If only he could keep his true nature secret. No girl would be attracted by a guy who can turn himself into a half-dragon, half-racoon beast, with no fire to speak of, no super-strength, and very tiny wings. How lame is that?


Tyro would rather go to school wearing only her underwear than be alone with Jack. What if going to Underworld City is a trap? What if he wants to eat her? 

But unless she teams up with him, she’ll never know what happened to her mum. Armed with her courage and a bottle of garlic spray, she accepts to travel to Underworld City with Jack. 
After a monster killed her dad, her mum is all that is left of her family, and she won’t leave her in the hands of brain-eating, blood-sucking creatures.

The Boy Who Killed Santa Claus

Misadventures in Auckland Book 2

While other thirteen-year-old kids think about playing and riding their bikes, Hau has to deal with fairies. He sees them everywhere—small, green, tiny wings, with pointed ears like Legolas. And they talk to him as well. In fact, they don’t want to shut up. 

No one believes him, not even his mother or his best friend. Kids at school call him names, and he’s just as popular as a visit to the dentist. 

On top of that, he’s the only one who knows the truth about Santa Claus. Santa isn’t the nice, fatherly elf everyone believes. He’s a bloodthirsty villain. Yep. Newt witnessed it with his own eyes when Santa killed his father in cold blood right under the Christmas tree. But again, no one believes him.

Mummy Dearest – A Pharaonic Adventure

Misadventures in Auckland Book 1

by Barbara Russell

 

During a school trip to the museum, thirteen-year-old Tess wakes up an Egyptian mummy.

Cursed by a necromancer, Prince Seth has been inside a sarcophagus for two thousand years. Now, he has no intention of going back into his tomb. He wants a normal life, friends, and fresh food. So, he follows Tess home, bandages and all.

Ancient Egyptian mummies bring bad luck. Since Seth’s arrival, a car has almost run Tess over, and a lamppost nearly squashed her. With Tess’s soccer team, the Wolverines, qualified for the New Zealand Junior Soccer Championship, this curse could destroy its chances of winning. Even worse, evil Egyptian spirits chase her and Seth to take their souls into the world of the dead.

Unless they find the two-thousand-year old necromancer, who controls the spirits and who gained eternal youth by cursing Seth, Tess and Seth will be doomed forever.

I’m an entomologist and a soil biologist, which is a fancy way to say that I dig in the dirt, looking for bugs. Nature and books have always been my passion. I was a kid when I read The Lord Of The Ring and fell in love with fantasy novels.

When I discovered cosy mystery and crime novel, I fell in love with Hercules Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. Then I grew up and . . . Nah, I’m joking. Don’t grow up, folks! It’s a trap.

Sanctified by Maggie Blackbird

 

Jude headed up the shoveled walkway and pushed on the glass door. All was quiet inside the diner. He’d timed his break perfect at eleven o’clock. The breakfast crowd was gone, and it was too early for the lunch crew. Only Hank Snowball occupied a table near the back next to the window.

Jude strode up to the counter. Raven appeared from behind the swinging doors, having probably heard the bell tinkling overhead when he’d first arrived.

“Hey.” He removed his parka, slung the coat over the back of the stool, and sat. “I guess those lessons are going well, hmm? I haven’t heard from you.” He set his cell phone on the counter.

“I haven’t heard from you, either.” She flipped over his mug and poured the coffee.

He’d itched to call, but the kids’ reaction had kept floating through his mind. Yes, they seemed fine, but he’d had to make sure they had his attention before he tried sneaking around again.

“Honestly, my paperwork’s this high.” He raised his hand off the counter to indicate a stack of work. “And I had to settle in my kids.”

“How’re they doing?” Raven’s dark eyes brightened with curiosity.

“Fitting in. They like school. They know a lot of kids from their visits here. Same thing at church.”

She set her hand on the counter. Another good sign. She hadn’t made an excuse of being busy.

“Becky has a sleepover at a friend’s tonight, and Noah wants to stay at his grandparents’. It’s a sibling rivalry thing. When one’s at a sleepover, the other has to sleep somewhere else, too. It’s not any different up here.”

Raven’s skin glowed. “Cute. My nieces and nephews are the same way.” She pushed the menu in front of him. “What can I get you?”

You. Yep, he’d missed her. Missed their talks. Missed the flirting. Missed the company of a woman as stunning as Raven. “A bagel. And…” He leaned in. “Seeing how I have the night off…”

She squared her shoulders, and her gaze darted about. Jude’s shoulders also tensed. Second thoughts? God, no. Please. Hopefully she hadn’t changed her mind.

“I… Gosh, there’s so much going on. Nominations are on Monday night…” She clicked her painted nails on the counter.

“I’m a dad. I don’t get nights off too often. Say yes. Please.” He kept his voice low. And he meant please.

Her deep gaze pierced his, searching. Deep enough that he held his breath while the seconds passed, seconds seeming to drag on long enough to punch his contracted abs. Finally, she nodded.

“Okay,” Raven whispered, leaning in slightly. “We…can. Where’re we going? I—”

“I’ll get you. Take a walk down Turtle Road.”

She folded her arms across her flat stomach and again nodded. “What time?”

“Seven. I’ll have the kids dropped off by then. You can show me the camp. Do they still keep the road plowed?”

A ride out to Geoff’s Camp was the perfect spot. The small resort closed for the winter, but people still used the road. At least Jude hoped so.

“Yeah. They do.”

“Then that’s what we’ll do. I’ll bring along some hot chocolate.”

The bell over the door tinkled. Jude swiveled in his seat as two old women came in. When Raven dashed off, he couldn’t resist checking out her long legs and perfect ass. The minutes would drag until he saw her again.

After dropping off Kyle at Jude’s for an overnighter, Bridget pulled up in the no-parking zone in front of the brown-brick, three-story building. Seven-thirty. The bar scene didn’t liven up until after ten o’clock. They couldn’t go that late because of Adam’s parole curfew.

To fit in at the bar, she’d kept her dress simple. Jeans, a t-shirt, and sandals. Only a hint of eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss. Her hair was bound in a long braid.

Adam emerged from the double-glass doors in his customary jeans, t-shirt, running shoes, and cowboy hat. With his hard onyx eyes, firm jawline, and the stony set to his lips, he’d fit right in at The Gator. He swaggered down the walkway and stopped at the truck.

With the windows lowered, his low whistle carried inside.

“Nice ride.”

“Thanks.”

Adam opened the door. His muscular form consumed the over-sized bucket seat, so much he removed his hat and set it on his lap. His waves of hair kinked. He adjusted the chair all the way back. “Yep. Nice.” He glanced behind him. “A guy could stretch out there, too. You always dug trucks.”

“We’re in Northwestern Ontario. Trucks are a necessity.”

“Not too many women drive ’em in the ’Peg. Hell, you don’t see many trucks at all. Lots of SUVs instead.”

“I’m not any other woman.” Bridget slid the floor shifter into gear.

“That you sure ain’t.” There was a huskiness to Adam’s compliment.

Warmth crawled along Bridget’s skin. She guided them away from the curb.

“This an Annihilator edition? Sure is sporty.”

“Yes.” Pride blossomed in Bridget. She loved her ride—bucket leather seats, ten-speed transmission, four-wheel drive, and a top-of-the-line stereo. There was even a moonroof and sliding back window Kyle preferred over air conditioning.

“Where’s the boy?”

“At Jude’s. We won’t be done until after nine. I thought it was best he stayed overnight so he can go to bed on time.”

“Oh?”

Bridget stopped at the light. When she turned her head, the breath jumped from her throat at the sight of Adam’s dark eyes that first glittered with distress and then eagerness.

“What’s wrong?” Bridget stirred her coffee.

“Nothing. What did you need to talk about?”

“I can’t believe he used to be your... best friend.” She shook her head.

A hot coal burned inside Emery’s stomach. Bridget was referring to Darryl. Emery stood and turned to the counter. He couldn’t let her see his face. “What do you mean?”

“Do you know what he’s doing?”

The moisture in his throat vanished. He shook his head.

“Did you know he moved back to the rez?”

Nodding, Emery opened the fridge and reached for a container of water. He poured a glass and sipped. The cold liquid washed away the heat in his throat, but sweat formed in the pits of his arms.

“I never thought he’d do this to us.” Bridget’s tone almost froze the ice water Emery held. “Especially after everything Mom and Dad did for him. Y’know, I used to really like him. I mean, whenever I’d go up to the rez and visit, he seemed genuine about his beliefs and so nice. But he’s taken this Traditionalists Society a bit too far.”

“What’s he done?”

“First, he joined team Clayton. Dad speaks about that weasel a lot. He’s always giving the church grief.”

Dad wouldn’t mention any problems the church was encountering. Whenever they spoke on the phone, he insisted Emery stay focused on his discernment. “I remember Clayton. Vaguely.”

“Darryl’s on band council. So’s Clayton. Put the two of them together at the leadership table and they think they’re Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.”

“I see...” As for Darryl’s rise in the political ring, this wasn’t news to Emery. He checked Ottertail Lake’s web site on a weekly basis. Seemed Darryl had made part of his dream come true.

“At the band council meeting, they voted against the donation Mom and Dad requested for Healing the Spirit. According to Darryl and Clayton, anything Catholic goes against their so-called traditional beliefs. You know what this workshop means to us. Especially Dad. He wants to give everyone the same chance he had to put the past behind them and move on.”

Darryl did... what? Perfect. There went Emery’s chance at making amends. Why was Bridget telling him about their parents’ problems anyway? If she expected him to fly home and confront Darryl, she was asking the wrong person. Returning to the reserve meant a fist in Emery’s face, or maybe two fists.

Wait. He must try to make amends. If he didn’t, he couldn’t write to the bishop in January. Still, only a fool would think to approach Ottertail Lake’s most stubborn, opinionated, hard-headed man.

Emery chastised himself for being a tad negative and judgmental. Darryl behaved in an all-or-nothing manner because he was passionate about his causes and beliefs—which had drawn Emery to Darryl in the first place.

Imagine being bold and courageous, the kind of man ready to stand proud and face ridicule, instead of silently obeying and quietly accepting. If Darryl had lived during the Indian wars, he would have tossed down the pen instead of X-ing the dotted line on the Treaty and died fighting for their freedom.

“Are you even listening?” Bridget was still speaking.

Emery pivoted. “Yes.”

She raised her black brows. “No, you weren’t.”

“Yes, I was. Tell me what else he’s done.” He sank in the chair to listen.

An Ojibway from Northwestern Ontario, Maggie resides in the country with her husband and their fur babies, two beautiful Alaskan Malamutes. When she’s not writing, she can be found pulling weeds in the flower beds, mowing the huge lawn, walking the Mals deep in the bush, teeing up a ball at the golf course, fishing in the boat for walleye, or sitting on the deck at her sister’s house, making more wonderful memories with the people she loves most.

Christmas Hope by Caroline Warfield

 

Christmas Hope

by Caroline Warfield

 

Some wars must be fought, some loves must live on hope alone, and some stories must be told. This is one of them.

 

When the Great War is over, will their love be enough?

After two years at the mercy of the Canadian Expeditionary force and the German war machine, Harry ran out of metaphors for death, synonyms for brown, and images of darkness. When he encounters color among the floating islands of Amiens and life in the form a widow and her little son, hope ensnares him. Through three more long years of war and its aftermath, the hope she brings keeps Harry alive.

Rosemarie Legrand’s husband left her a tiny son, no money, and a savaged reputation when he died. She struggles to simply feed the boy and has little to offer a lonely soldier, but Harry’s devotion lifts her up. The war demands all her strength and resilience, will the hope of peace and the promise of Harry’s love keep her going?

Guardian's of Light Series by Renee Wildes

 

A Guardian's Heart

Guardians of Light Book 1

by Renee Wildes

 

Strength can be drawn from pain…if the heart can heal faster than it bleeds.

Dara Khan Androcles was trained from childhood to be a healer. But as a demon-possessed invader threatens Safehold, and she defends a wounded warrior on the battlefield, her hidden inner dragon thirsts for blood.

When she lifts the warrior’s blond, blood-encrusted hair away from his ear, she discovers he is more than King Hengist’s outlander ally. He is an immortal. The elven heir to the throne of Cymry.

Loren ta Cedric senses something different about flame-haired, falcon-eyed woman who saves him. A healer, wreathed in raw, dark power, who wields knives with deadly skill. A mortal who prays to the Lady, not the human gods. Now he owes this thoroughly distracting female a Life-Debt. Which, in the heat of their flight to Loren’s homeland to raise an army, somehow becomes Life-Mate.

Dragon-human and elf, peasant and prince, logic says they have no future. Yet the power of their unlikely bond could be the only thing that saves their world from a demon poised to tear it apart.

Warning: This new twist on Cinderella contains a grouchy dragon, a sentient war mare with the dry wit of a certain English Dame, and a fiery heroine who strikes serious sparks with a mercenary elf.

A Guardian's Hope

Guardians of Light Book 2

 

As a child, invaders butchered Maleta’s parents and left her ravaged body for dead. Now, reborn as a finely-honed weapon for the Gray Goddess, Maleta has shed the burden of emotions for one goal—regain her homeland for her brother.

Cianan ta Daneal’s mission to the fractured land of Shamar is twofold: to overthrow a despotic queen, and to save a life. For months, he’s been haunted by recurring visions of a beautiful swordswoman slaughtered by a skeleton army. He never expected to lay eyes on that woman and recognize her as his Lifemate—or that she’d turn and run like hell.

Uniting Shamar’s diverse peoples in revolt is easy compared to the delicate task of wooing a woman who flinches from his touch.

Slowly, Maleta dares to hope that her country, what’s left of her family, and her shattered heart are safe in Cianan’s steady hands. But when the cold blade of fate strikes true, can she trust his love is strong enough to pull her back from the Abyss? 

Warning: This new twist on Sleeping Beauty contains an assassin nun who knows no fear. Okay, just one fear, but it’s a biggie. And an Elven paladin with the Devil’s own negotiating skills. To coax her heart out of hiding, he’s gonna need every one of them.

A Guardian Revealed

Guardians of Light Book 3

 

Years ago, the pull of the full moon and a powerful curiosity drew Finora into a human fisherman’s bed—a man who stole her selkie skin and took its location to his grave. For seven years, trapped on land, she has searched fruitlessly. Hope fading with every passing year.

Tasked with finding and returning dragons to his mountain homeland in the east, Trystan follows a slim lead westward across an unfamiliar sea. When pirates attack his ship, leaving him with injuries too severe for his werewolf to heal, he comes face to face with the most unexpected of rescuers—Finora, her two, half-human children, and the biggest damned dog he’s ever seen.

Tristan and Finora’s attraction is instant, undeniable, and hopeless. Finora is pulled to the sea, Tristan is tied to the land. But Finora can help him complete his mission, and share one night of searing, heartbreaking passion. And memories only the deepest of betrayals could shatter…

Warning: Contains Celtic legends, seven-year curses, dragons with bad attitudes, imperiled children, a grumpy sea goddess, and wave upon wave of soul-searing pleasure.

A Guardian's Dream

Guardians of Light Book 4

 

Plagued with nightmares of a goblin child tormented by monsters—and with her usual cures having no effect—dream faerie Pryseis journeys to the Shadowlands to heal the child in person even though doing so risks the wrath of the faerie council. And, if she’s away from home too long, her very existence.

Caught and imprisoned by an ungrateful goblin sorcerer, she’s now trapped underground, chained, her despair growing as her time ticks down yet warmed by the memory of a man she has only touched in dreams.

Benilo ta Myran drained his spirit healing powers during the war, but he has no choice. The beautiful faerie in his dreams is in trouble, and not even his worried king and queen can stop him from trying to save her before the darkness snuffs out her light.

Finally they are together—chained side-by-side in a goblin dungeon. Their only hope for escape is to break the law to merge their powers in a ritual so intensely erotic it binds them for life. However short and nightmarish that life might be…

Warning:
Beware beautiful faeries and hot elves appearing in your dreams. They may lead you astray…and steal your heart.

A Guardian's Destiny

Guardians of Light Book 5

 

On what should have been Verdeen’s proudest day, she is blocked from advanced warrior training because no war mare chooses to bond with her. Burning with humiliation, she accepts a lesser assignment to the Isle of Ice, serving as bodyguard to human riever, Daq Aryk. 

Verdeen’s never paid much attention to men, so focused was she on her training. But she quickly realizes hieing off into a distant wilderness with Aryk is a bad idea. He makes her lose all focus and perspective.

Aryk faces a difficult task: molding six warring clans into a peaceful whole. He’s got nothing against women warriors, but Verdeen is young and inexperienced, her beauty a potentially fatal distraction. She’s a shield-maiden, not a bedmate. But the way she melts at his every touch erodes all his good intentions…and sense.

One kiss unleashes the kind of feverish desire that should occur only once in a lifetime—with a mate. But as their quest takes ever more dangerous twists and turns, their bond could be the one thing that unites a nation. Or make Aryk’s worst nightmare a blood-soaked reality.

 

Warning:Contains fire and ice, ever-gratuitous sex and violence, sword play and self-play, spying and lying, noble intentions and betrayal. In other words, a rollicking good roll in the proverbial hay.

The Merculians by Caro Soles

 

The Memory Dance

The Merculians Book 3

Merculian is usually a peaceful world of artistic, fun-loving and sensual hermaphrodites. The planet has always been safe, most Merculians blissfully unfamiliar with the dark powers that lurk beneath the surface of familiar things.

The trouble starts when the aliens arrive. Celebrity dancer Triani picks up a mysterious Terran male in the Pleasure Gardens, and an Ultraati rope dancer dies. Seemingly unrelated, these two events unleash powerful forces that disrupt the lives of everyone around him. Secrets from his carefully hidden past boil to the surface, flooding him with fear. When his beloved Giazin is threatened, he risks his life to save his child. Yet the mysterious group known as the Watchers will not let go. Can Triani free himself from the grip of these formidable beings or will they force him to betray his human lover?

XYZ by William Knight

 

XYZ :

One Man, two kids, ten devices and an internet-sized generation gap

by William Knight

Genre: Humorous Fiction

 

 

From a former Guardian and BBC writer, and author of The Donated, comes a hilarious story of mid-life crisis, family, technology, and coping with the modern workplace.

 

Jack Cooper is a depressed, analogue throwback; a cynical, alcoholic Gen-Xer whose glory days are behind him. He’s unemployed, his marriage has broken down, he’s addicted to internet hook-ups, and is deeply ashamed of his son Geronimo, who lives life dressed as a bear.

When Jack’s daughter engineers a job for him at totally-lit tech firm Sweet, he’s confronted by a Millennial and Zoomer culture he can’t relate to. He loathes every detail – every IM, gif and emoji – apart from Freya, twenty years his junior and addicted to broadcasting her life on social media.

Can Jack evolve to fit in at Sweet, or will he remain a dinosaur stuck in the 1980s? And will he halt his slide into loneliness and repair his family relationships?

XYZ is for every Gen-Xer who ever struggled with a device, and for everyone else who loves emojis ... said no one ever.

‘Essential reading for anyone in the workplace over 40, and a handbook for those cocky bastards who are not.’
Paula (Boomer, wannabe GenX)

 

 

Goodreads * Amazon

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48132492-xyz

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TTWHYL2

Humans have inflicted terrible miseries on each other over the centuries. From the Second World War, to the slave trade, and to government-inflicted famines. But civilization has never been so damaged as when some arse invented emojis.

We built catapults to shoot each other, camps to hide in, bats to play cricket with; we used cans for football and for kick-the-can — I think other kids used to call it prisoner, or something — but kick-the-can did exactly what it said on the tin. We made marble runs from builder’s sand, Hungarian goulash from mud, bows and arrows from bamboo, snail houses from grass and sticks, targets from bricks and slides from plastic. And when all that failed, we had our push bikes for motocross.

I didn’t know any different, but my childhood weekends were paradise. What more could a boy have asked from life than to have two ready-made mates who wanted to do the same thing at the same time, and if they didn’t, we threw stones at a bottle to see who got to decide?

William Knight's writing credits include The Guardian, The Financial Times and the BBC, among many others publications, where he has written about the successes and failings of technology.

He currently lives in Wellington, NZ, where he works as an IT consultant and writes blistering content for technology firms.

The Donated, (first published as Generation), is a thriller based on the dangers of experimenting with viral DNA and ignoring science. It features a techno-phobic journo.

XYZ is a mid-life car crash. Jack Cooper works for a super-cool tech firm and can't operate his own mobile phone. Besides, his life is falling apart because his family is addicted to the internet.

Other novels, The Fractured and Foretold, may be available "one day" he says.

The Game Plan by Breanna Hayse

 

The Game Plan Series Book 1

by Breanna Hayse

The book that began the Contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon is Back and it's BIGGER AND BETTER than EVER!
#1 Multi-Genre Best Selling Author Breanna Hayse brings you The Game Plan:
A story of love, hope, healing and discipline under the power of an age-play relationship.
***
After being abandoned by her father, twenty-year old Cassandra Johnson fought against being loved by anyone. Even after her mother married ex-Dolphins Quarterback Big Bill Johnson, she resisted every attempt to become part of her new family. Her resistance includes any interaction with the older Johnson boys who seem to enjoy nothing more than bossing her around. After the sudden passing of her mother, Cassie grows tired of living under the thumb of her dominating family and decides to press for independence. She starts by asserting her obstinate and willful disposition and defying all rules laid out for her. 
When Bill goes to Japan for three months on business, he leaves Rob, the oldest of his sons, in charge. After the deliberate breaking of several house rules and multiple temper tantrums, Rob decides that a change to the "Game Plan" is necessary to bring Cassie under control to prevent her from hurting herself. The first thing on his list is taking the brat for a well-deserved trip over his knee for a bare bottom spanking! 
Over the years, Rob had watched Cassie grow from an awkward little girl to a beautiful young woman. He struggles with his feelings when his interest in Cassie goes far beyond just curbing her naughty behavior. Her dream of having a life free from control is soon shattered when Bryon, the second oldest of the Johnson boys, adds some firm-handed discipline of his own.
The stubborn young woman soon finds herself facing more than just an old-fashioned, over the knee, bare-bottom spanking. She quickly learns that the Age-play lifestyle can lead to the healing of a long-broken and hardened heart. Even though she immerses herself in the joyful role of being Rob and Bryon’s Little girl, she wonders if she is truly wired for the type of relationship that they offer her. She also questions her ability to accept being Rob’s ‘big girl’ and give him what he longs for by becoming a true submissive.

**Only .99 cents!!**

Time Out

The Game Plan Series Book 2

The sequel to the original contemporary Age-Play book, the Game Plan, is here and bring you more fun and antics of the Johnson family as they grow together in Age-play and BDSM relationships.

You’ll meet Krissy, Bryon’s sweet little girl, as she is introduced to the concept of age play and discovers herself in the process. Suzanne and Glenn are back, and Suzanne explores her own femininity and puts pride aside to face her fears and needs as a Domme. Of course, we can’t forget Rob and Cassie as they grow and indulge in their own D&S lifestyle. Worlds collide as Cassie and Krissy fight over Daddy Bryon, Bryon and Glenn fight over Suzanne, and Rob seems to be the only voice of reason that is heard. And that's just the beginning...

Publishers Note: the Age-Play Dynamic of the BDSM lifestyle is the most trusting and intimate of all. It values innocence, trust and nurturing of consenting adults. If you enjoy this genre, please check out many more of my AP stories, including a nonfiction piece (The General's Little Angel) which shares how I was introduced to the dynamic.
Thank you for reading!

There are more twists and turns, sizzling hot sex, and well-spanked bottoms than this quiet little suburb of Miami can handle!

The End Zone

The Game Plan Series Book 3

The #1 Best Selling Age-Play Author who launched the world-wide contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon with The Game Plan and Time Out, brings you
THE END ZONE
***
Life was like a Chocolate Mousse Parfait for Cassie Johnson—especially since entering the BDSM lifestyle with the two alpha male brothers, Rob and Bryan. Her Dom and her Daddy Dom give her everything her Little heart desires—love, attention, pleasure, guidance and even discipline. They both belong to her, in and out of the bedroom, and her life finally feels stable, satisfying and secure. But then her happiness takes a turn when Daddy Bryon announces the probability that he will make his relationship with his girlfriend, Krissy, a permanent one. Throwing salt on her wounds, Cassie learns that both her Doms are interest in sharing her wonderful world with Krissy!
The Little Green Monster is let loose as the young woman faces the pain of being pushed aside and replaced. Devastated when her Little mode is carelessly ordered to ‘grow up,’ she decides to end BDSM, Age-Play and her engagement to Rob. Nothing, or no one, will change her mind.
Except for Dorian Graye, the Whip Master and the ‘king’ of the BDSM community. 
Distraught by Cassie’s withdrawal, Rob and Bryon decide to take her to meet their mentor. Cassie can’t resist either Dorian’s charm or his raw ability to read into her needs, and instantly sinks into her Little place. The powerful Dom and his beautiful wife, Meredith, take her under their wing to teach her how to release her fears and open herself to play, passion, and freedom. 
Self-doubt disappears in the presence of her new aunt and uncle. Cassie discovers the love of a BDSM family, all of which are equally happy to put her across the knee for a humiliating, bare bottom spanking as they are to spoil her with stuffies and ice-cream sundaes. The more she releases her Little to them, the greater the joy and freedom she receives.
She has only one concern, and that is if the magic spell of Graye Manor will disappear after they return home. There she must face the likelihood that both her Little space and her men will be shared with the other Little girl. Is her Little ready for such a Big step?

Touchdown

The Game Plan Series Book 4

Breanna Hayse, the #1 Multi-Genre Best-Selling author and founder of the contemporary Age-Play Phenomena, brings you BOOK 4 of the beloved Game Plan Series! TOUCHDOWN
****
Following the unannounced departure as the two older Johnson boys take their shared sub on vacation during Spring Break (End Zone, Book 3), Kristina Barker is left feeling abandoned, disposable and hurt. A vague text message from her boyfriend/Dom, Bryon, makes her question the reality of everything she had grown to love—including him. 

Being home alone while the other three explore the pleasures offered at Graye Manor wasn’t what she signed up for when she agreed to become part of the BDSM household. Heartbroken and discouraged, she turns to Domme Suzanne Bichat and discovers that her age-play aunt is also struggling with her relationship with Glenn, the youngest of the Johnson boys.

Both women decide that a change is in order, starting with a no limit/no restriction evening of action and adventure at a local bar—and no boyfriends or alpha males are around to stop them! However, too many drinks and a bout with a stripper-pole results in Suzanne’s ex-husband being summoned to drag the inebriated Domme from the club with little Krissy in tow. Sir Douglas Bichat, a handsome Brit and an honored dominant of The Gentlemen’s Club (TGC), employs his special skills as a loving, but firm, Daddy Dom and brings a sense of security and value to the two hurt girls.

Even while trapped in an unspoken love triangle with his ex-wife, and tormented by his own desire for her, Doug hold true to TGC’s Code of Conduct and places Suzanne’s needs above his own. With Krissy’s help, he finds a way to draw Glenn into the mix and ensure Suzanne’s happiness.

Little does he know that a void in his heart would soon be filled as the four of them grow into a family based on old-fashioned values and loving discipline. With Krissy as a niece, Glenn as his mentee, and, surprisingly, Suzanne as a Middle, Doug’s hands are happily filled with teddy bears, model ships, ice-cream cones, sand castles, and an occasional paddle to be applied to a cheeky bottom.

The week of Spring Break transforms each of them as the past is revealed, the future is uncertain, and the present exposes lust, temptation, unbridled sexual delights, and regrets. With the support of her new ‘parents’ and ‘brother,’ Krissy prepares for Bryon’s return home where he will be confronted with the truth and a decision that could permanently shatter the foundation of love and trust.

YES! There is more!
Be watching for Rob and Cassie’s wedding at Graye Manor, a shocking surprise, and the reunion of two amazing Doms in Book 5- Unnecessary Roughness!

BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I'm a native Californian gone 'wild', and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.

In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.

My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I've devoted my 'spare' time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.

I was formally 'dungeon trained' as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on 'the real deal.'

I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can't find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

Buried by Sian Claven

 


Home is where the heart is...or the hatred.

You can feel the love and care someone puts into their home just by walking into it. Equally, you can feel the hatred and malice when you step into a home where dark deeds have been done.

Alex and his team of so-called paranormal investigators are given the opportunity of a lifetime when they are able to film inside one of the most haunted, and cursed, locations in their area.
The Jackson Mansion.
The thing that makes this mansion truly unique is that it is built completely underground. Determined to uncover the dark secrets of the mansion's past, and prove himself a notable investigator, Alex doesn't care what it takes. The mansion, however, has other ideas, as well as some rather restless occupants.

Excerpt Three

From Chapter Nine

1892

 

Wallace Jackson had just inherited a mansion back in his family’s hometown and he was curious about it, specifically about its morbid history. There was a rumor circulating that the Jackson Mansion was cursed and that in each generation a Jackson family member was doomed to be a killer.

Wallace didn’t hold with such nonsense. He was a firm believer in science and fact, and there was no such thing as curses. Still, he travelled to the mansion and was delighted when he discovered it was built underground. He found a bedroom and made it his own, directing the servants on where to pack his goods before he went to explore the mansion. It would make an excellent place to conduct his experiments.

He lived at the mansion alone, preferring to be left in peace to work, while his family remained in Jackson where his children went to school. His wife had not been saddened by his departure; he was rarely home anyway and she knew how important his work was.

He turned one of the rooms into a laboratory of sorts and spent countless days working there. His meals were served there, his tea was served there, and eventually he moved his bed in there so that he wouldn’t waste any of his time at all. It was a dream come true for Wallace Jackson, and one he intended to continue to live until his last breath.

There was, however, a nagging feeling. Something in the pit of his stomach that made him question whether or not the mansion was complete. A little voice kept gnawing at him, telling him he had to expand the mansion, grow its reach.

So he called contractors in, told them what he wanted and set them to work. It would fall into his daily ritual. Eat, Work, Eat, Work, check on the progress of the building, Eat, Work and rest. Every day was the same as the one before and would be the same as the one that ensued.

Unfortunately, though, the construction quickly burned through his savings and he had to find alternative ways to make money. He knew there was a need for women to have abortions safely and without judgment and without the law interfering. He mentioned it to his servants and they brought forth the first girl desperate to have an abortion. She paid the price for it and Wallace executed the abortion skillfully, putting the tiny baby body into a jar. It was little more than a head, but he wanted to study it anyway, so these abortions would not be a complete waste.

There was an endless supply of women who needed his help and many came from the bigger cities under the guise that they were on a Christian retreat, or on holiday with friends, just to enlist his services. His plan worked perfectly; he was able to support his family in Jackson, his renovations of the mansion and his scientific studies. Senators brought mistresses, mayors brought daughters, and everyone in between came from miles around to use his abortion services.

Soon he had a fair collection of babies in jars that lined his laboratory and it got him to thinking about them. He wanted to dissect and study them.

He started with the earlier and smaller ones he preserved. He cut them open, examined what had developed and what had not, and made notes on each one.

It wasn’t long before he heard the voices of his ancestors talking to him, guiding him, telling him how to renovate the mansion and what to use the dead babies for.

Soon he experimented with attaching different body parts to the aborted babies to try and bring them back to life. He tried attaching them to each other and pulsating them with electricity. He tried attaching them to various animal bodies. Soon he began to order foreign creatures from out of the country to experiment on. He brought in various kinds of cats, dogs, exotic birds, and then started to bring creatures of varying kinds.

Hunting the Devil by Suanne Schafer

 

 

 

Hunting the Devil

by Suanne Schafer

Genre: Medical Thriller, Crime Mystery, Dark Romance 

 

 

When Dr. Jessica Hemings volunteers for a medical mission in Rwanda, she becomes entrapped in the maelstrom of Rwandan politics and the enmity between Hutus and Tutsis. Her Tutsi features plunge her into the Rwandan Genocide. Dr. Cyprien Gatera, Jess’s superior and a Hutu radical, commandeers her clinic, slaughters her patients and her adopted sons, then forces her to treat his wounded. She escapes and survives three weeks in hiding before finding refuge at Benaco refugee camp in Tanzania.

There, Jess vows revenge. She searches for Gatera with the help of Michel Fournier, a French lawyer-turned-war-correspondent, and Dr. Tom Powell, her long-time lover. When an unknown informant passes information to Jess about her nemesis, she returns to Rwanda, despite warnings from the Belgian Secret Service that Gatera plans to assassinate her. In their final showdown, Jess must decide if revenge is best served cold—or not at all.

Suanne Schafer, born in West Texas at the height of the Cold War, finds it ironic that grade school drills for tornadoes and nuclear war were the same: hide beneath your desk and kiss your rear-end goodbye. Now a retired family-practice physician whose only child has fledged the nest, her pioneer ancestors and world travels fuel her imagination.

She originally planned to write romances, but either as a consequence of a series of failed relationships or a genetic distrust of happily-ever-after, her heroines are strong women who battle tough environments and intersect with men who might—or might not—love them.
