Once Upon a Time…
In the Kingdom of Tränen, a King makes a promise to his dying wife to only remarry someone who has her golden hair. With time, the King finds his eyes are turned by his maturing daughter. Realizing her father’s intentions, Princess Aurelia tries to trick her Father by requesting impossible gifts: dresses created by the sun, moon and stars and a coat made of a thousand furs. When Aurelia discovers his success, she knows she must run away from her privileged life and escapes the kingdom disguised by the cloak and under a new name, “Allerleirauh.”
Aurelia enters the safe haven of the Kingdom of Saarland der Licht, where she is taken under the care of the handsome and gentle Prince Klaus. Hoping to not be discovered by her father’s courtiers, Aurelia tries to remain hidden under her new false identity. Unexpected love is found between Aurelia and Prince Klaus and is challenged with an approaching arranged marriage between the Kingdom of Saarland der Licht and a neighboring ruler. With the possibility of discovery hanging in the air, Aurelia must face the difficulties of her past with her father in her journey of self-discovery before the Prince and his entire Kingdom learns the truth of her real identity, and she looses him forever.

About the Book
Title: Spell Breaker
Author: Joni Parker
After Lady Alexin (Alex) breaks the spell around Seaward Isle, the inhabitants can leave the island for the first time in a thousand years. At long last, the Elves and Dwarves can return home to Eledon, while the mortals are given the opportunity to stay or leave through a portal to the mortal world. Alex chooses to stay with her Elf family only to be involved in a mission to rid the Elf World of its most notorious criminal, Sawgrass. Alex must eliminate him before he implements his plan to kill her Water Elf family and take over Eledon.
A few minutes later, Grandmother Lestin returned and took Alex by the arm. “Come with me, Alex, I want to show you something.” She led her to a two-story house, a few blocks away. It had white stucco walls and dark timbers with an old thatched roof. As they stepped inside, Grandmother Lestin burst into tears.
“What’s wrong?” Alex put her arms around her.
“This was my brother’s house, and I found out from Queen Narin that it was left to me.” Grandmother Lestin waved her hand over a plaque on the wall; the room brightened. “It needs to be fixed up. Your room will be upstairs when it’s done. Let me show you around.”
“What’s that?” Alex pointed to the plaque.
“It controls the crystal to give us light. Let me show you the kitchen.” She led the way through the parlor to the dining room, which was next to a small kitchen with a pantry and attached bathing area. Crystals brightened in each room as they entered and turned off when they left. Alex jumped between rooms to test it.
Grandmother Lestin removed some dusty sheets from the furniture to check on their condition as they toured the house. Back through the parlor and down the hall was Grandmother Lestin’s bedroom. Upstairs were two more bedrooms and a sitting area.
Alex craned her neck, taking in the layout of the house, the lighting overhead, and the idea of living here with her grandmother. It was overwhelming.
“Prince Darin has offered us a place to stay until the repairs are completed,” Grandmother Lestin said.
“This is a cute house.” Alex hugged her for several long minutes. “What happened to your brother?”
“He was murdered by an assassin.” She wrinkled her brow. “I’m the last one in my family...except for my grandchildren.”
“Was it that guy, Sawgrass?”
“Who told you that?”
“Prince Darin. He told me all about it.”
Grandmother Lestin stared away. “Yes, that’s true. They were murdered. And thanks to Prince Darin, King Henran is dead.”
“I never heard of a Marsh Elf or a Fire Elf before. How many kinds of Elves are there?”
Grandmother Lestin shrugged. “That whole topic is quite complicated. The Water Elves are the only clan of the original four that remains intact. That’s why there is only one king left—King Sidin. The rest have splintered into smaller and smaller groups. It’s impossible to know how many there are.”
“Is this Sawgrass still alive?”
“I don’t know. Don’t worry about him, Alex. We have a new life to build…together.” Grandmother Lestin embraced her. “Let’s get started.”
As they left the little house, Alex glanced back. There was a history of brutality that she never knew, and she wondered what had been done about this Sawgrass.

Pam Stanley is a Southern California transplant to Kansas City, and if you are in a great pub or night-life place there, he or she is probably standing right near you watching for you to do something funny or ridiculous so a good story comes out of it.

‘A cat must do what a cat must do. Only a cat may define the characteristics of a cat. And, this cat drinks Chardonnay.’
Freddie had been affected by reading that passage unlike anything else he had ever read. He knew authors used analogies for symbolism, but never before had he gotten a literary message so clearly. He identified with the cat completely.
He was Egbert and the world was his Anna.
Mother had always told him he was different and that he was special. In that very moment, the first time he had read Sydney’s words, Freddie finally felt clarity an understanding about who he was.
Like Egbert, he was so much further evolved than everyone else. He had lapped those around him.
The obvious derivative of that truth was that he had lapped Mother too. He was smarter and better than she, but he kept that to himself. Although Mother’s lithium pills kept her formerly wildly unpredictable mood swings more to a comfortable monotone, she didn’t always take them. He thought she might purposely skip her meds occasionally, she said she didn’t like how they made her feel…or didn’t feel. She would claim forgetfulness, but he suspected intent in missing them. It made it very difficult to predict her behavior or reactions to him and when Mother was truly angry, it scared Freddie. He knew from the past incidences that she was capable of anything, being old and decrepit hadn’t done much to contain her willfulness. It was best he kept insight like his superiority over her to himself.
As he thought about his Sydney, calm returned to him during the flight. He needed to let go of the frustration he was feeling from his brief Los Angeles trip. The experiences there had taken him away from his comfort area, and he was relieved to be returning to the sanity of Kansas City. He relaxed himself with further thought about Sydney the rest of the way there and his plans to be united with her.

About the Book
Title: Darkview: Psychosis
Author: R.J. Bathgate & M.J. Hall
Genre: Psychological Thriller / Horror
Jack Cyrus is in damnation! After witnessing the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, he has become plagued by dark memories and devilish visions, the result of post traumatic stress. Compounding his trauma, he is faced with the sudden death of his wife, from cancer, after returning home to Scotland. Lost and alone, and struggling to forget the horrific circumstances surrounding her passing, Jack has developed schizophrenia, experiencing chaotic, disturbed thoughts and demonic hallucinations.
On the sixth anniversary of his wife’s death, Jack receives a cryptic, hand written letter from her, telling him she is still alive. Suffering and held captive, she pleads with him to return to Darkview, the place she spent her last days, and rescue her from purgatory. Upon arrival in Darkview, strange things start happening, and what appears to be a centuries old mystery, starts unravelling itself. Jack must piece together the clues and lost fragments of his sanity to solve the unravelling mystery. Is any of it real, or is it just a manifestation of Jack's mind, or another facet of his schizophrenia?
Take a journey into the disturbed, delusional mind of Jack Cyrus … take a journey into Darkview … a small, remote coastal town, deep within the Scottish Highlands. The sleepy, isolated spot bears a sinister, horrific history, shrouded by a chilling secret. A secret one man must unveil, which will ravage his soul … and sanity!
Jack tightly grasped the cold wrought-iron gates and sighed, though not in relief. A dark, intruding thought had instantly crossed his mind. What was my evil? Burt, Jake, and Ann, had all committed despicable acts. Their punishment: trapped in this sombre dimension of Darkview. So why was he trapped here too, surrounded by the damned?
Jack couldn’t contemplate, nor fathom why he was here. He had spent his whole life helping people who couldn’t help themselves. It didn’t make sense. He could not visualise causing harm or suffering to another human being. The only exception had been Samson. Jack knew Samson would have killed A’isha, and himself, had he not acted. His actions that day were justified, but at the back of his mind, something else continued to trouble him.
As his hands pressed against the cold metal, he scanned beyond the gates. It was the first time he had seen the amusement park. He had not been aware of its existence before today. It all seemed foreign, except for the gates, which Jack, to his chagrin, recognised from childhood.
Once, these gates had been the entrance to the Fearann an Dorcha Estate, where the Laird David McNab, his wife, and only daughter, had lived, in a mammoth, opulent mansion surrounded by Japanese water gardens. When the Laird and his family perished, in the 1930 Blackwood Dam disaster, their home had subsequently laid empty for many years. During World War II, the building became a military hospital. Following the end of the conflict, it turned into an orphanage, where Jack ended up after the death of his mother and the mysterious disappearance of his father.
Jack had spent his teenage years in the old manor, but had no fond memories. Demolishing the manor years ago was a necessity, following a mysterious blaze that ripped through the entire building deeming it structurally unsound. Jack was relieved. It pleased him that replacement of the bane of his youth was now a venue where children could have fun. All Jack could remember from his days at the orphanage was suffering, combined with the constant fear of bullying and physical torment.
After sorely contemplating the past, Jack pushed against the iron gates. They screeched open to reveal a large forecourt shrouded in mist. Shimmering through the nebulous vapour sprung the rotating lights of a carousel, and an old, wooden, rickety rollercoaster, towering high in the air. Although the park was illuminated, and all the attractions and rides seemed to be in motion, Jack noticed that nobody was around. The place was completely deserted.
Lisa had led Jack to this place. He was right where she wanted him. Jack felt angry and frustrated, standing alone in the middle of the forecourt, arms folded, and waiting for Lisa to reveal herself. He felt like his journey had taken weeks instead of days. Ultimately, he just wanted to find Chloe and go home. He was tired, exhausted. These endless games of cat-and-mouse had left his body drained…
About the Authors
R.J. Bathgate, born and bred in Scotland, is the creator and co-author of Darkview: Psychosis. A father of two, and enormously proud of his heritage, he has studied psychology, social sciences, and is currently working towards an advanced diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling and hypnotherapy. His heart lies with new experiences and an interest into the unknown, particularly with writing. He has travelled the world from the dusty, wildlife-filled plains of Zambia, to the glaciers of Alaska, and the soaring peaks of the Canadian Rockies. He is extremely fond of NHL ice hockey, video games, good films, fine wine, and Jack Daniels. He originally wrote Darkview as a screenplay when living in Canada, but upon returning to Scotland, researched mental health issues, namely psychosis and schizophrenia. Inspired by this research, he brought in his lifelong friend, M.J. Hall, to help create a more realistic take on Darkview. The result is a story that combines traditional Scottish history with real life, catastrophic world events, told through the eyes of the protagonist, Jack Cyrus.
M.J. Hall was born in Stockport, Greater Manchester, at the turn of the eighties. Despite being born in England, he identifies more with his ‘adopted’ country, Scotland – he’s lived there since he was four, and his late maternal grandfather was Scottish, too. He presently lives in Edinburgh and is currently studying Environmental Science at the Open University, but has always dreamed of a career in music or writing, or both. He is vegetarian, loves animals (especially cats) and is devoted to his black and white moggy, Tahlula. He humbly admits being just a small voice in a big chorus, and his life changed for the better, or at least would never be the same, when his lifelong and best friend – R.J. Bathgate – invited him to collaborate on Darkview.

“In the vision, I was sitting on a bench,” says Jomeini, her eyes distant. “The sunlight beat warm against the stone I sat on, but the wind that blew was brisk and harsh. A storm rode on that wind, a storm I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop. Afterwards, I drew this.”
Jomeini pulls another card from beside the others and hands it to Shasa.
“It’s a coat,” Shasa says, confused. She traces a finger over the handless, headless trenchcoat, drawn as though it’s blowing in the very wind Jomeini claims she felt during its vision.
“I assumed it meant that I wouldn’t be comfortable in my home much longer, that I would need protection from whatever storm was riding on that wind. I assumed it meant that Grandfather was taking me from my refuge, my home in Xavienke, and that I would need to find protection in Valadir. And it did, in a sense. But the drawing was also literal. Whose coat do you see?”
Chills brush across Shasa’s skin. “Color it yellow, and that could be Craven’s.”
Jomeini rubs her arms as if chafing away whatever memory fills her mind at that moment. Shasa wonders if it’s the same one she’s recalling, the sight of the dingy yellow trenchcoat Craven wore the day he snatched Shasa from right in front of the Triad Palace into an abandoned building and stole her magic then and there.
“What does the star mean, then?” Shasa asks. When Jomeini doesn’t answer immediately, Shasa continues thinking aloud. “Stars provide light in the night sky. They’ve held their places for years, giving sailors something to sail by.”
“But this one is a shooting star,” Jomeini says. “This one is setting off on its own course.”
“And you think it pertains to Tyrus?”
Jomeini shakes her head. “I thought so at first. I Saw Tyrus, yes. But I Saw others with him. Among his soldiers was a blonde woman I didn’t recognize.”
“A group of stars,” Shasa says inwardly. “With one straying from all the rest.”
“It means change is coming, and someone is at the center of it. I thought it was Tyrus, but now I’m not so sure. See the other star beside this? See how the bursts on the star go one way, so it looks like the star can be spearing to the left? But if you look at it this way…” Jomeini turns the card until it’s upside down. “Now the star could be shooting to the right.”
“So Tyrus isn’t leaving?”
“Not in so many words. It’s more complicated than I can explain, but something Tyrus is going to do will be as vast as the effort of crossing an ocean with no other guide but the stars. It’s going to change the world as we know it. And depending on what we do, that change is going to veer the races one way or the other. For good.” She holds the star picture one way. “Or for ill.” She turns it the other direction.
Shasa swallows and takes the card, experimenting. The star’s direction turns with each flip, more indecisive than the weather. It’s like the picture of a smiling man with a furrow in his forehead her mother used to draw. She would turn it upside down, and though the picture hadn’t changed at all, the man would look sad and menacing instead. All because of one or two carefully placed lines.
“So how do we get this change to veer in the direction we want it to go?” Shasa asks.
Jomeini doesn’t answer. Instead, she fingers the collar at her throat. The two girls sit in the boat in silence, bathing in the deep wake of their thoughts.
Book Title: Feasting With the Enemy (Scarlet Nights #3)
Author: Kate Hill
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Release Date: June 24, 2016
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
After more than a century sharing a bed and fighting at each other's backs, vampire warriors Blair and May have forged an unbreakable bond.
Now the mysterious New Reign is seeking additional members. Their philosophy--recruit or destroy. Using mind manipulation, they stir up dark memories from the past to tempt Blair and May into killing each other.
Given the chance to resurrect his murdered first wife and children, will Blair now sacrifice the woman he loves--his wife and blood child, May?
"Seductress," he said in a husky whisper while caressing her hair. "You always were irresistible, May."
"I'm glad you still think so."
He grasped her arms and tugged her on top of him. The sparse hairs on his hard chest teased her sensitive flesh. Their gazes locked and she lost herself in the depths of his eyes.
"Always," he said and kissed her.
His firm lips were both gentle and possessive. May loved the way he tasted and felt. She adored his scent and the comfort of knowing he loved her as much as she loved him.
She trusted this man with her very soul. Countless times over the past century they had risked their lives for each other, depended on each other and fought back to back against enemies determined to destroy them.
She and Blair were soulmates, husband and wife, partners against evil.
Tonight they were lovers and May intended to enjoy every moment.
Apparently Blair felt the same. He rolled May onto her back and kissed her again.
