Water to Water

Water to Water
by Karen A. Wyle
Genre: Science Fiction
Two young Vushla questioned what everyone knew about death.
What should they do with the answer?

When the time comes for

Vushla to die, they go into the ocean and are dissolved away. Or so

Terrill has always believed, and still believes after taking part in

his father’s final journey. But when he meets a young Vushlu who

lives by the sea, Terrill must confront information that calls this

fundamental belief into question. Will the two of them discover

the truth? And what should they do with what they find?

Karen A. Wyle was born a Connecticut Yankee, but eventually settled in

Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She now considers

herself a Hoosier. Wyle’s childhood ambition was to be the youngest

ever published novelist. While writing her first novel at age 10, she

was mortified to learn that some British upstart had beaten her to

the goal at age 9.

My name is Ashley Ellis…

 

 
I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.
 
When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
 
With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosier’s clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father
 
…dead or alive.

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson

thumbnail_BIGSTICK_Teaser3.jpg

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson is coming soon on October 23rd!
A brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.

“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—USA Today bestselling author Jami Davenport

Big move . . . Jodie’s motto is “Don’t wait for the perfect moment—take the moment and make it perfect.” And that’s just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend’s boyfriend has just the answer.

Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He loves them. It’s just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem—because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.

Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him—around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn’t want. But maybe she’s just what he needs. . . .

Roone…

The plan was simple, go undercover, protect my best friend’s little sister. It should have been the easiest assignment of my life.

But Jessa isn’t your usual princess. She’s feisty, and sexy, and stubborn, and gorgeous. Did I mention she hates me? From the moment I carried her over my shoulder out of a bar fight, I’ve been persona non grata.

But the stakes are too high to mess this up. The monarchy is at risk.

Jessa…

I can’t stand Roone Scot.

There I said it. Shoot me.

We go together like lightening and water. His quiet, steady obstinance is going to cost me my job. A job I have worked very hard to keep. No one is messing this up for me. I’ve had enough crazy in my life.

Not to mention the way his eyes track me every time I move, makes me uncomfortable in an I-need-my-batter-operated-boyfriend kind of way.

But even if I wanted him – which I don’t, but if I did – I can’t ever have him. My life is not my own. I’ve known that since birth.

Martini bar in town. Now if I can just get through one meeting with him without
falling flat on my face, I might fall in love instead.Zane:

Author Bio
Heather Rayne is the dirty and flirty writing
collaboration between published authors Heather Guimond and Daryn Rayne.  They are two crazy, overly-caffeinated,
under-intoxicated flovers who enjoy fine vodka, wine, and are hell-bent on
world domination.

 

Heather Guimond
Heather Guimond is a Los Angeles native, a fact of which she
is abnormally proud. When she’s not trying to write something that will make
people laugh while simultaneously ripping their hearts out, she’s either
reading or doing her best to crack the whip on her three home-schooled
children. She loves all things witty and wise-cracking, as well most varieties
of smart-assery (just ask her very own smart-ass, her husband). Other favorites
include French roast coffee in copious amounts and the dirtiest Dirty Martinis
she can find. More than anything, she hopes that she writes books that stick
with the reader long after the pages have been read.
Daryn Rayne
Daryn is a former fashion model-turned writer, but her
dreams of fame and fortune on the catwalk were suddenly dashed when she fell
flat on her face during a big show.
Ashamed and hobbled, she released all her frustrations into a collection
of poetry called “Songs from My Poor, Broken Ass.”  Ever since, there has been no stopping her in
the literary world.

Lily Novak’s life in Crystal Cove, Maine is just about perfect. She has a

 

great group of friends, runs a successful day spa, and has managed to build her new life without anyone asking about her mysterious past. There’s nothing more she could want…except maybe to catch the eye of the gorgeous and introverted carpenter, who also happens to be her friend’s brother.
Ty Parker knew fear in the Army, but nothing like the panic of seeing smoke billow from Lily’s building. When a dryer fire brings him face to face with the heart-stopping Lily Novak—and her lacy black thong—he can’t deny the chemistry sparking between them.
As their feelings deepen, Lily’s evasiveness reignites the self-doubt Ty has been battling for years. Lily knows her secrets are putting her relationship with Ty at risk, but telling him the truth puts both their lives in danger. She’s just not sure she’s strong enough to sacrifice her heart to keep the man she loves safe from the secrets of her past.

Love on the Ranch by Ciara Knight


Love on the Ranch by Ciara Knight releases October 16th!

Add it to your TBR TODAY: http://www.bit.ly/LoveOnTheRanchTBR

Elizabeth McKinnie will no longer accept men ruling her life. After the Civil War devastated her family home and having no way to survive, Elizabeth accepts one of the mail-order bride proposals presented to her and her sisters. She chooses a man who promises to treat her as an equal. Her sister convinces her to switch suitors, proclaiming the weather in Texas would be more suitable for Elizabeth’s weak lungs. Agreeing, she heads west to meet the mysterious cattle baron she knows little about.

Jeb Clayton grew up as a poor son of a drunkard. He has worked his entire life to ensure he never starves again. He is a man who understands cows better than women, especially after watching the fairer sex manipulate his father into an early grave. Still, he begrudgingly agrees to marry a sturdy bride to produce sons who can help build his ranch into an empire. Yet, what he sees getting off the stagecoach is a whisper-of-a-woman with undesirable birthing hips.
When Elizabeth’s and Jeb’s futures are threatened will they join forces, or will their bitterness be their end?
EXCERPT REVEAL

Susan rolled Elizabeth’s head from Jeb’s shoulder and patted her cheeks. “Wake up, dear.” She smacked her harder. “Wake up.”

Adrenaline pumped through Jeb. If there was one thing he couldn’t witness, it was a woman in trouble. It did things to him he didn’t like.

Charles pounded on the wall behind him and the horses slowed.

“Elizabeth?” He turned to her and found her lips blue and her eyes rolled back in her head. His muscles tightened, his gut twisted.

The stagecoach rolled to a stop and the man on the end opened the door and everyone spilled out of the carriage. Jeb lifted Elizabeth and handed her off to the man that had been at her other side.

By the time Jeb reached the ground, Susan was on her knees at Elizabeth’s side, and everyone stood around, looking down at her gasping for air.

He found himself matching her breath for breath. “Anyone know what’s wrong?”

“No, she was fine the entire way here. Until you boarded the stagecoach,” Susan said with clipped speech.

Charles put his hand on his wife’s shoulder. “I doubt it’s him, dear.”

She shot a sideways glance of disapproval at Jeb.

“What else? Anything else change at the stop? Perhaps she ate something that she had a problem with?”

“Dress.” Susan looked up at him. “Her dress. She changed it. Maybe the corset is too tight. We could—”

He didn’t waste any time. If there was one thing he’d learned raising cattle, time meant everything. The faster you worked, the better the outcome. He slid his knife from its holder, rolled Elizabeth onto her side, slid the knife carefully under the neck of the material, and sliced down. Then he cut the string and yanked the corset loose.

After a second, she gasped for air and coughed. He rolled her over and saw the color in her lips and face returning.

“You’ll be fine now.” He stroked her cheek with the back of his knuckles and found her skin softer than any horse mane he’d ever touched.

Jeb watched as Elizabeth’s green eyes blinked and focused on him. “What happened?”

Susan huffed behind him. “You are an animal.”

Jeb looked up at her. “What are you talking about? I saved her life. That stupid-looking, impractical dress nearly choked her to death.”

“My dress?” Elizabeth said in only a whisper. She blinked, then her eyebrows pulled tight toward the center. “What did you do to my dress?” She shrieked and shot up but swooned again. With a hand to her head, she took a moment, then reached around her back. “Oh, my dear lord, what have you done!”

Charles cleared his throat. “I think he did what he thought was best to save your life.”

Susan glowered at her husband, and he shut his mouth. The man was controlled by a woman. That was never going to happen to Jeb. Ever.
