Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
For Sure & Certain, by Anya Monroe
**She knits, cans jam, and lives in the city. He’s an Amish college student, breaking the rules. They're so right, it's wrong.**

Marigold, a recent high school graduate with a shady past, is looking to redefine herself. She doesn’t know what she wants exactly, but college isn’t it.

When she meets Abel, an Amish guy on Rumspringa, his ‘running around’ time, she doesn’t plan on falling for someone wearing a straw hat and suspenders. But she can't help it, Abel is the breath of fresh air she's been waiting for.

Abel, who’s moved to the city for a summer program at Jamestown, never imagined Marigold would be drawn to the life he was trying so hard to avoid. His family expects him to take ove...
GIFTED ((The World of Flesh and Blood Book 1), by Agapé Perez
In a world where one out of ten people are GIFTED with supernatural abilities, society has passed “The Genetics Act” outlawing all genetic anomalies—making it a crime to be GIFTED.

After being released from a maximum security facility, AgapĂ© is ready to pick up the shattered pieces of his life and win back Sarah, the woman of his dreams. But it’s complicated. His gift, his curse, it seduces his conscience—allowing the deceased and criminally insane to take refuge in his body. Can he preserve his sanity—keep the madness at bay long enough to destroy the evil spirits entombed within? Will he make it out alive, when assimilating back into society means being viewed as an object of consumption?

Eleven Days: An Unexpected Love (Days Trilogy Book 1), by Lora Lindy
REVIEWS:
"Loved the story. Could not put it down. A great mix of romance and mystery. Ms. Lindy adequately describes the emotions of her characters and takes the reader on an unbelievable adventure. This begs for a sequel. I want more from this author." -- Francine Fuqua, author.

"I just finished reading this book last night - could not believe a book would bring me to tears like this one did - I am hoping the sequel comes out soon as I want to see what happens next - and of course I have been putting my own "spins" on how the next book plays out - thanks so much for keeping me glued to my Kindle." -- Sue

Athena's Oracle: An Heirloom Vampyres Novella (An Ema Marx Novel 0.5), by J.D. Brown
Her love was doomed from the start...

Leena's 'gift of sight' secures her place as the next great oracle of Athena. Instead of being groomed for wifehood like other girls, Leena spends her days within the walls of the Acropolis, shuffled around by the clergy and doomed to be a virgin forever. Before her ascension, Leena decides to take matters into her own hands. With the help of her father's book of alchemy, she casts an incantation calling forth her own personal hero. But when that hero turns out to be a rogue vampyre prince with a haunted past, Leena begins to question if her feelings for him are the work of divine intervention, or a love spell gone horribly wrong.

Athena's Oracle is a prequel to the novels Dark Hei...
A Game of Proof (The Trials of Sarah Newby series Book 1), by Tim Vicary
A mother's worst nightmare - can her son be guilty of murder?

Sarah Newby, who left school at 15, and was living as a teenage single parent on an inner-city estate, has worked her way up to begin a career as a criminal barrister. But what should she do when her own son, Simon, is arrested and charged with a series of brutal rapes and murders?

Has Sarah, in her single-minded determination to create a career for herself, neglected her son so much that she no longer knows him? He has often lied to her in the past, so how can she trust him when he says he is innocent this time? And what should she do when she herself uncovers evidence that seems to suggest his guilt?...
Dark Heirloom (An Ema Marx Novel Book 1), by J.D. Brown
"You're a vampire" is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she's able to see in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn't understand is why the other vampires expect her to have all the answers. It's their fault she turned into one of them...right?

Jalmari's hatred for his old-man intensifies when he's ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run; there's no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture. But when a two-thousand-year-old premonition threatens to take the crown and his life, Jalmari sees no other ...
A Plague of Shadows: A New Adult Dark Fantasy (The Harbingers of Light Book 1), by Travis Simmons
A darkness seeps through the night. A plague that corrupts and turns people into mindless beasts called darklings.
The land of O lives in fear of magic. Magic comes from the darkness, just as the shadow plague does. The shadow plague brings the darklings who are mindless and corrupting. When Abagail comes in contact with the shadow plague, she knows she either has to control it, or be cleansed with sacred fire.

Abagail Bauer doesn’t believe in other worlds outside her homeland of O. She believes they are just fantasy, something that belongs to the books her father reads. But when her father finds she’s caught the shadow plague, he sends her to live with her Aunt Mattelyn in a world known as Agaranth. Mattelyn...
Deep Down, by Jack Parker
Alex Rivers has secrets.

Alex had enough problems. The last thing he wanted was to be thrown into a summer camp that is anything but. Shadow figures in the night, everybody acting strangely and a fight for escape was definitely the last thing he expected....
