The Viking Mist
Ariella Moon
(The Two Realms Trilogy, #2)
Publication date: March 2nd 2022
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

When a fairy kills a fairy, they forfeit immortality.

Never over three centuries, since the Last Fairy King was assassinated, has a noble fay been murdered in Fairy…until now.

The mysterious murder leads to an astounding discovery. Mab, Queen of Fairy, accuses Talfryn’s parents of stealing an elixir that restores immortality. She holds his fay father hostage, forcing the Halfling to enter the Viking realm to retrieve the potion.

Talfryn has five days to navigate the world of lethal Cold Iron, locate the human mother he has never known, and recover the elixir that could mask the murderer — a quest he cannot survive without aid from Fenella. Will the Thaness of Thorburn honor their alliance, knowing the venture would jeopardize her freedom and second chance at love?

In 16th century Scotland, Fenella believes Talfryn is dead. Her covert plan to regain her thanedom and safeguard her life hinges on marrying her kidnapper’s son…for love. With weeks until their wedding, she can ill afford to break Edward’s trust, or his heart…again.

Will love be lost…or found?

In this sequel to The Beltane Escape, shape-shifters and secrets abound, time bends, fates interweave, friendships fray, and no one is safe.

The Heart Rehab Experiment by Starla DeKruyf

The Heart Rehab Experiment
Starla DeKruyf
Publication date: May 10th 2022
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Pete Redd used to have it all: a solid marriage, two spirited daughters, a fancy home, and a career as a top realtor at a big agency in L.A. He was happy, he was fulfilled. Until a recurrence with cancer took the life of his wife, and along with it—his purpose for existence.

Fast forward six months.

Newlywed Tess Cavanaugh is tired of her freeloading dad lounging around her house dressed in her fluffy pink robe, his morose mood, and most recently—his constant interference of her sex life and plans to start a family.

Desperate, Tess hires self-help author and Interventionist of a successful program, Jules Sweeney to break her dad out of his depression and launch him out of her house. Unaware of Jules’s exact career and possibly blinded by her infectious quirkiness and confidence, Pete agrees to a program he isn’t privy in the details of. Jules has sworn off men after being hurt one too many times, including unintentionally by a father suffering dementia. Despite Jules’s attempts to keep things professional, Pete’s adorkable personality and hot dad-bod immediately win her over.

The problem?

Starting a relationship based on deception is risky. If Pete discovers the truth regarding the program and the self-help book, Tess’s entire plan could unravel, spiraling him into a worse state than he was in before. And if the program is successful and Tess gets what she wants—her dad out of her house—the saying, be careful what you wish for may never be truer.

COVER


BLURB

♥ One night makes everything perfect ♥ 

Siena

I am only here because of my PR job. I do not have time to be distracted by his chiseled jaw and perfect body. Or those tattoos. Who am I kidding? He’s a successful race car driver so he will not give an awkward curvy girl like me a second glance. But he does. He won’t take his eyes off me, and before I know it, I’m pressed against his muscular body, seeing promises in his eyes I know I shouldn’t believe.

Rex

I have no interest in doing this stupid photo shoot and I want to get out of here in a hurry. That is, until I see Siena. Her gorgeous body and pouty lips make me rethink my self-imposed vow of celibacy. So when the female model doesn’t show up, I pull Siena into the shoot with me. I’ll use any excuse I can to get my hands on her curves and maybe just talk her into being mine for forever. 

Can a jaded billionaire athlete and an ambitious career woman lower their defenses and take a chance on forever?  

Steamy short insta love romance between a possessive man and the woman of his dreams. No cliffhanger, low drama, high heat, with a steamy sweet happily ever after. 

Note to readers: Falling Fast was previously published with the title Ride. This version is revised and updated.

COVER


BLURB

TRIX
I love my job, but there’s something not quite right going on at Aces, the club where I bartend. I’ve been keeping an eye on things, but I’m not sure who to trust and what’s really going on. I’d be disappointed if the owners are behind it, but I find people often disappoint.

Everything about the new guy, Sebastian, is dubious. There’s something he’s hiding and not just how he doesn’t belong behind a bar. It’s too bad I also want to jump on him and never let go. It’s a real problem.

I won’t accept a liar into my life. Not again. So why can’t I stop thinking about him? And why, when I need him the most, is he right there?

First, we need to get to the bottom of what’s going on at Aces. Then, I expect the truth. All of it. Maybe when everything is out there, I’ll be able to decide if the feelings I’ve been having for Sebastian are real or not.

SEBASTIAN
Moving to Denver from New York was one of the best decisions of my life. I’m part of a family now that is unlike the one I grew up in. I only wish I didn’t have to leave behind the most important person in my life.

I thought going undercover at Aces for Higgins Security was going to be a straightforward assignment, but Trix complicates matters. I’ll find out what’s going on but telling lies to the woman I know is mine is going to have consequences.

She’s suspicious, rightly so. When tragedy strikes my past, it means my son, Drake, is moving in and more lies pile up. I hate it.

Can I keep my woman safe and prove to her I’m exactly the man she needs when the line between a lie and the truth has been blurred? I have a job to do, but nothing is going to stop me from making Trix mine. My life is changing with Trix and Drake at the center of it. She might not believe it, but we’re forever and I’ll reveal everything. Right after I find out who’s behind what’s been happening at Aces.


**18+. If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone and the fifth in the Higgins Security series, but it would be more enjoyable if you’re caught up with this Denver family.
Warning: This story may contain casual cannabis use, but not to worry, they live in a legalized state and are responsible members of society.**

Warp

Life taught me not to trust. Family betrayal cuts the deepest of all, and my kin’s given me plenty of reasons to go by my road name “Warped.” A Nomad, I make a point of not getting too attached. Then I become a godfather, and my wall begins to crumble. Against all odds, their godmother, Jess, would infiltrate my defenses with a fiery kiss that shows me I can have everything I’m not worthy of. A better man would let her go, but she’s become a light in the impending darkness encircling me as my past rises from its grave and refuses to let go.

 

Jess

I spent my life chasing after my dreams and defying the small-minded views of my tiny southern town. When I saw a chance at a life in California, I took it. I never imagined a tattooed biker with dark eyes full of malice would play a starring role in my fantasies. I knew he was off-limits, but too much to drink has me crossing lines and set things into motion I never thought possible. The connection we share is something I’ll risk everything for.

 

Is this a new beginning or the breaking point?

COVER 


BLURB

SILAS
I’ve grumbled and sneered about doing the food for a Valentine’s Day speed dating event at Aces since the moment I was told about it. It seems like a horrible way to meet someone. How can you make a connection in five minutes?

When I do one more check to make sure everything is ready for the break in the middle of the event, all my protests fly out of the window. I don’t need five minutes to make a connection, all I need is one glimpse of her.

Watching her talk with other men has me on edge. It’s only a matter of time before I can make my approach. Then I’ll make her mine. She’s going to learn there are some perks to dating a chef and I’ll be doing a lot more than dating Paisley.

PAISLEY
To say I was resistant to the idea of MatchMakers Inc. speed dating event would be an understatement. My best friends talked me into it. I couldn’t argue with shaking up my love life and I did make a New Year’s resolution. Everything else is going so well, but when it comes to love it’s been one mistake after another.

Spending my Valentine’s Day at the event instead of on my couch eating ice cream and watching romance movies doesn’t sound like a good time to me, but I promised I’d give it a try. I’m skeptical about the whole thing and I don’t feel a spark with any of the participants, but I’m determined to see the night through.

I’m not expecting a man to set his sights on me. He’s not even part of the event, but I can’t deny there’s something about him. With the way he looks at me and the way he makes me feel? Dating is not where this relationship ends, not even close.

**18+ If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet and spicy but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone but is related to my Denver Family series (Banks Ink., Suburban Outcasts and Higgins Security). Meet Silas in Healing Her Home (Banks Ink. Book 5) and Faking Her Home (Banks Ink. Book 6). Meet Paisley in Built Dad Bod Tough (Dad Bod Series – Men Built for Comfort).**

This Valentine’s Day, our heroes and heroines are skipping the dating apps and attending one of MatchMakers Inc. famous Speed Dating events. Is five minutes enough time to feel a spark of chemistry? Can love truly be in the air?
Go on a speed date with us and find out!
