Description

They stole her son. She wants him back.

From New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling author, Diane Capri, comes the high-stakes, fast-paced first installment in the Jess Kimball series. 

Jess Kimball’s son has been missing for ten long years. She spends every available moment looking for him. She’ll never stop. She’ll never give up hope.

She knows the best chance she has to find Peter is a tip from someone who’s seen him.

To keep her search in the public eye, hoping for the right tip to come her way, she’s climbed to the top of her field, investigative reporter for Taboo Magazine.

Which is how she met beloved Florida Governor Helen Sullivan. . .

Three years ago, Helen’s world shattered when her only son died in a senseless car crash, killing his best friend, too. Helen quickly discovered Eric’s crash was no accident and lured the killer to her son’s funeral to be caught. When the shooting ceased in the small country church, the shooter was dead and Helen believed her nightmare was over. Instead, she’d unwittingly escalated her duel with a cunning and patient assassin.

Now, Jess and Helen are driven to find the horrifying truth. . .

Who killed Eric Sullivan? Is the real killer still out there?

Recently knighted squires Raven, Romda, and Ravai are tasked to help a nearby priest. However, this simple errand turns into much more, as they will soon learn of a dangerous villain only known as “the Dark Beast.”

From local gossip, the Dark Beast sounds more like a character from a fable than a real person. But the Beast is on a mission to destroy an entire city, and Raven, Romda, and Ravai will have to leave their safe castle walls and venture into a country of unknown people and places to stop this villain.

As the trio travels on, they meet a host of people, all of them with their own stories about the Dark Beast. How could this fiend have escaped the kingdom’s gaze for so long? Is he even real?

Raven is skeptical, Romda is knowledgeable, and Ravai isn’t too worried about anything. The three knights have their own strengths, but will it be enough to defeat a being so superior? They may have no choice. The Dark Beast is coming…

A great gift for the fantasy lover, this adventure will please those who enjoy a strong build that culminates into an action-filled ending.

Author: Ruth Cardello

Page Count: 270

Genre: General Fiction (Adult) | Romance

Publishers: MontLake

Publishing Date: October 4, 2022

Description
Laughter and sparks set the stage for a fun romance from New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello about a farmer who switches places with his business-savvy twin brother and falls in love with the daughter of his brother’s biggest client.

I just found out I have an identical twin. I’d love the idea if he wasn’t an arrogant, overconfident businessman who is determined to save my farm even though I’m in no danger of losing it. When I agreed to switch lives with him, it was supposed to be for a couple of hours.

I was told to lie low, meet no one, and let him deal with the oil company that was sniffing around my property. I agreed to the switch only because it was the first time since we’d met that my twin had shown interest in my life, and I hoped it would give us a better understanding of each other.

Hours drag into days. I consider our initial agreement void and head to his office. I’m sitting at his desk, mostly minding my own business, when a beautiful woman blusters in, ready for a confrontation with my brother about an email. She’s the daughter of my brother’s largest client.

I only flirt with her to make her smile. What could it hurt to pretend to be my brother just a little longer?

I didn’t expect to uncover a plan to sabotage my brother’s company. I don’t want to believe that the woman I can’t get out of my thoughts and would love to get into my bed has anything to do with what I’ve discovered.

Save the company.

Save the girl.

I have no idea how I’ll do either, but when something is done out of love, it has to work out.

Description

As the High Prince of the demon-fighting thrax, Lincoln knows he must marry for political gain. Not that he minds. For all of his eighteen years, Lincoln’s been bound to his duty. Fighting demons is his life, and he’s never given romance a second thought. Instead, the High Prince lives for the days when he leaves his hidden realm to fight demons on Earth.

Then, everything changes.

Lincoln and his nobles become forced to visit Purgatory, the home of quasi-demons (who are mostly human with a bit of demonic DNA). Here Lincoln spies Myla Lewis, a lady warrior who enflames his heart, ignites his interest, and inspires his respect. Trouble is, Myla’s also a quasi. By thrax law, Lincoln must kill anything demonic—not date them.

For the first time in his life, Lincoln wonders if he’ll follow his duty…or heed the demands of his heart.

30,000 words. Takes place before Myla and Lincoln meet.

Two people find love in the embers of their painful pasts in this slow-burn romance from Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw.

For me, family is a curse. My father and brother made my life hell. My mother’s untimely death still keeps me up at night. Now that my brother, Donovan, has been killed in an accident, I can forget the past.

The last remnant is the childhood home I’ve inherited—and which I intend to burn to the ground. The only obstacle? Anneliese Nielsen, Donovan’s fiancée.

Donovan left her destitute, and selling this run-down house is her only chance to recoup her losses. I shouldn’t care, but…maybe it’s her eyes when she sees me. I look strikingly like my brother, a man she loved despite everything.

So we strike a deal. We’ll renovate the house together, but she’ll have to convince me to sell—or up in flames it goes.

But the more time we spend in the house, the more its terrible history threatens to come out.

And even more dangerous, the harder I start to fall for Anneliese.

Determined to make the best of a bad situation, Louise settles into her new role as Lady Louisa of the Crossroads—by far the most popular and desirable of all the courtesans in Lord Verdigris’s Hall of Harlots.

Description

FIRST BOOK IN A NEW SERIES BY INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR KELLY MORAN!

Wallflower Rosemary Fillmore has never endeavored anything more than a good book, a cool glass of sweet tea, and a cat to curl up in her lap after a long day of teaching teenagers how to dissect literary masterpieces. Dowdy and shy, hardly anyone in her quaint southern town of Vallantine, Georgia, knows she exists, and the only time she has an ounce of confidence is if the world is a fictional one. So, when three of her star students suddenly start to show an interest in her personal life, or lack thereof, she wonders what on earth the girls are after. Or why. And how it involves a certain town librarian. Because she hasn’t exactly agreed with how he’s been running the beautiful landmark into the ground since taking over, and frankly, she’s been more than a little upset about it. Besides, he is probably the sole person more awkward than herself, despite how kind or understatedly handsome he may be.

As the only living descendant of the original town founders, saving the Vallantine Library from destitution falls on Sheldon Brown’s shoulders. And he’s failing. Miserably. The one-hundred and forty-year-old historical building, erected by his ancestors, has been in near ruins for a decade, and the state of the library system is declining. What he doesn’t need adding to his burden is giggling teenage girls hanging out between the stacks, spying on him, and asking silly questions about their teacher. Even if the woman in question is Rosemary. Pretty, sweet, and utterly endearing Rosemary, who he’s been attempting to ask on a date since forever. Except he’s chronically gotten the impression she doesn’t approve of him or his attempts to save the library. But then a mishap one night and a strange challenge from an unlikely source changes everything, and he wonders if perhaps two introverted bookworms can get a happy ending, after all. 

I received an advanced copy of this ebook from the publisher for an honest review. This book is well written and the characters are described well. This book is set in Vallentine, Georgia. I enjoyed Rosemary, Dorothy, Scarlett, and Rebecca characters. This author’s writing style is great. This novella is a really sweet romance. This ebook is in stores for $1.99 (USD).
