MEMOIR MEETS THRILLER:

Laila Levin enjoys a successful marriage and a thriving career as an I.T. executive in Austin, Texas, but she can't quite shake her lifelong sense of not truly belonging anywhere.

When her company announces a major layoff, Laila finds herself caught between an unscrupulous CEO and her promiscuous boss. Then news of her college roommate's suicide stirs up a dark secret involving three devious friends from her past. One has betrayed a vow, another wants to rekindle their romance, and the third is out for revenge.

Suddenly for Laila, it's 1969 again. She's only seventeen, and she's left her sheltered home in Long Island for college in Connecticut. Amid protests of the Vietnam War, she's tempted by the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll that rule her generation. Laila gets swept up in a deceptive love triangle with two older locals and initiated into their unethical hippie family. Too late she realizes her search to belong has led to tragedy.

Laila must now juggle the demands of her perplexed husband and her baby boomer past forcing her to make choices that endanger her survival and challenge her conscience.

She learns that the lines between right and wrong are often blurred, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

Mary Baker and The Eye of the Tiger, by D.M. Cherubim. (Still 0.99?)

Check out this newly released YA magical adventure! A magical stone changes Mary Baker's life for the better, but its worth also puts her in danger. Pick it up for only $0.99!

"What a magical book! It reminds me of Roald Dahl's various stories with a mix of Harry Potter." -- Amazon reviewer

Mary Baker isn’t happy. She’s bullied by a mother who hates her and her mother’s boyfriend is a redneck plumber with a big gut. It’s only the mysterious surprises that keep happening to her that make her life fun. Or interesting. Like the anonymous gifts that come in the mail or the flocks of black birds that follow her. Then one day, a death and a mysterious, magical stone with symbols on it, called The Eye of the Tiger, bring her great wealth and a new life attending a school of white magic.

This sometimes amusing adventure includes misspells which hit the wrong people with funny results, and real spells and rituals that have powerful and serious consequences. Mary isn’t sure if her real father is true evil, but spirits hint she has a royal destiny.

All is going well until a hooded man steals her stone from a secret room. Now, her great wealth in jeopardy, Mary and her friends soon find themselves in real danger as they come up against a young sorceress who can’t decide if she’s evil or good and a truly evil wizard, who just wants the stone for the riches it will bring.

Hyalee Smith is dead, she just doesn’t know it yet.

Love in Reality: A Contemporary Romance (The Blackjack Quartet), by Magdalen Braden. (Still 0.99?)

This fun romance features twins, Lissa and Libby, trading places and falling in love with a TV producer. Their deception gets them into all kinds of trouble, but will love overcome it?

"What a cute and funny book! I loved the characters and if you are looking for an easy read and one that will make you smile then this is the book for you." -- Amazon reviewer

Never has the Philadelphia legal community generated so much passion -- it has to be the fictional world of former lawyer Magdalen Braden, who introduces us to The Blackjack Quartet with the story of a law student who discovers Love in Reality ...

TV producer Rand Jennings isn't looking for love -- he's looking for a flirty female contestant for his reality show, The Fishbowl. Pretty bartender Lissa Pembroke is bright, outgoing, and the perfect "Fish" to play the part. Although sparks fly between them when Rand approaches her with the role, she wants nothing to do with him or his show ...

Law student Libby Pembroke is too busy with school and work to have time for love -- or reality TV. She's temporarily switched places with her identical twin sister Lissa, balancing Lissa's job with her own studies and preparing for a summer internship. So while the handsome and charming Fishbowl producer knocks Libby off her feet, there's no way she's going on national TV, and acting like, well, her sister.

The irresistible chemistry between Libby and Rand can't be ignored, however, and soon Libby discovers that pretending to be Lissa gives her a freedom she's never known before. She goes on the show to be close to Rand, even though Rand still thinks she's the "flirty" twin.

When Libby decides to reveal the truth, will Rand forgive her deceptions? Or will exposing her secrets -- and her heart -- ruin everything?

A Brush with the Moon (Foxblood Series Book 1), by Raquel Lyon. (Still 3.99?)

After a fox bite, Sophie's life begins to change - secrets get revealed and danger emerges. This fantasy adventure will keep you on the edge of your seat!

"This book has everything that you could ever want in a novel. There are shifters, vamps, demons, inter-dimensional travel, a rotating love triangle, and the real life of a university student complete with trials, tribulations, and parties. Yes, this book is about werewolves and vampires, but that is where the similarity to most other books of the genre ends. Lyon takes this basic premise and runs far and fast with it, giving her audience a novel that cannot be put down." -- Amazon reviewer

One incident is all it takes to change your life. For Sophie it happened the day the fox attacked her.

When Sophie moves away to university, she is finally happy; reunited with her best friend and spending time doing the one thing she loves, art.
Life's perfect. Or is it?
In Fosswell, nothing is as it seems. People are dying, secrets are big, and danger hides in every shadow. Sophie's changing too; could it be anything to do with a recent fox bite? And why does she find a creepy, old house so compelling?
All becomes clear when she meets the seductive Sebastian and learns his family's secret.

Foxblood: A Brush with the Moon is a 75,000 word Young / New Adult novel, the first in the series, and it contains scenes not suitable for under 14's.
(Previously published as Foxblood:The Chase)

Reviews:

Foxblood begins with rather normal action of two young people conversing on the phone but as soon as the new accomodation is mentioned our antennae start to twitch (just as the author intended!) The prose is competently structured to move the story along and the characterisation is credible and three dimensional. The differing aspects of supernatural, extraordinary powers, darkness, menace and humour are blended in an optimum mix to make this an entertaining read. Robert Davidson.

This is young adult fantasy at its best! The pace put me straight into the story and I was engrossed.
Very convincing dialogue, not forced or contrived, good credible supporting characters and an impressive build up.
Jane

Your brilliant fantasy grabbed me and kept me riveted. Credible characters with emotional depth. Crisp dialogue. confident narrative. Vital writing. I love this story.
Carolina
