Maia has spent most of her life trying to run away from her past. When a chance encounter lands Maia in a dubious peace initiative, she has to walk down a road she had hoped never to tread. Little does she know that the real truth about her long-dead mother is somewhere down this path.

But before she gets to that, Maia will discover true friendship, face an unimaginable evil, and fight her deepest fears to save the world she loves.

A planet on the brink of extinction. An enemy from the dark-side of the universe. Only one girl and her secret stands between them.

The Truth About Thongs, by Stephanie Rowe

The Truth About Thongs, by Stephanie Rowe

You know that amazing moment when the guy you’ve been crushing on finally notices you? And you have a fantastic conversation? And then, the next day, he doesn’t even recognize you, let alone drop to his knees and declare he’ll be yours forever? Yeah, that hurts. And that’s pretty much Blueberry Waller’s life.

Freshman year might have started off as zero for Blue, but when she gets a part in the school musical as her crush’s mother, it’s her chance to get noticed by him. Yes, Heath is much cooler than she is. Yes, he’s a senior, and she’s a freshman. And yes, he has to kiss another girl in the play. But when he runs into Blue at a cast party, suddenly, she’s on his radar.

Things are moving fast, faster than Blue is prepared for. It takes her three best friends, and a very hot senior named Colin, to help her figure things out….until things suddenly become a lot more complicated than she ever intended…including a first kiss that’s all wrong. Or is it?

Fantasy

Dead Radiance by T.G. Ayer

Dead Radiance by T.G. Ayer

Bryn Halbrook had always seen the glow on the people around her. And she knows all too well what psychiatrists do to people who claim impossible powers. She’s always stayed below the radar, but when she discovers the meaning of the beautiful auras, she’s not sure why she was cursed with the ability to see the soon-to-be-dead and be unable to do anything about it.
But Bryn is on the brink of the unbelievable truth – she is a creature from myth. Valkyrie- a warrior maiden of the God Odin. And a Collector of Souls.

Aidan Lee just can’t do what he’s told. Visiting Craven was not supposed to be a time to fall in love. He’s just helpless when faced with the beautiful Brynhildr, but there is more to the biker dude that either Bryn or Aidan himself knows.

Can their fledgling love survive the secrets and intrigue, the reality of Odin’s realm of Asgard, the pressures of being a warrior of the gods,

But Bryn lucks out when the Trickster god Loki sets his sights on her. Can Bryn hold her own against the charmingly manipulative god long enough to discover what Loki is really planning?
Dead Radiance is a fantasy filled with passion and intrigue, betrayal and broken hearts, that will keep you turning the page.
