By: Heather Renee and Lela Grayce

Even monsters can have human faces...

When Lavinia Maycott's home is attacked by villainous pirates, she isn't sure how to find peace being a survivor. With her family murdered, she has only one place to go. However, her betrothed's estate isn't the safe haven she was expecting.

Alone and running for her life, she finds acceptance with a small group of rebels intent on fleeing the island in search of safer territories. When that proves more difficult than any of them realize, Lavinia must choose between letting harm come to her new friends or sacrificing herself to save them.

It will take all of the courage Lavinia didn't know she had to make it off the island alive, but even then, vampires and pirates roam the seas, making nowhere safe.

Glass Kingdom (True Story of Cinderella)

(Fantasy and Fairytales Book 4)

by M. Lynn

A hidden princess is an obedient princess.

On the shores of Madra, tradition is law.
For Princess Helena Rhodipus, this means wearing masks to hide from common eyes.
For the people, it means bowing down to a king who cares little for them. 
Wanting to rid herself of the rules holding her back, Helena escapes into the city, unrecognizable without her mask. 
She only wants a taste of life outside her walls before returning to the only place she’s known, but she hadn’t counted on him.The boy who makes her forget about her brothers’ worries or her father’s wrath. 
What if Dell is the freedom she’s been searching for her entire life?
As she begins to believe it’s possible to be both princess and normal girl, the kingdom she loves is thrown into chaos, and her once-solid family shatters, proving they’d been made of glass all along.

 

Dell Tenyson has nothing. 

The unclaimed son of a dead merchant, he sleeps in the barn behind his step-mother’s grand house. 
The life suits him. He only wants to get through each day and make it to the next. 
Injured in a street fight, Dell wakes to find himself embroiled in a world of spies and plotting with an unknown girl right in the center of it. 
He doesn’t know who she is or where she’s come from, but Dell vows to do whatever is necessary to protect her. Even if that means fighting in the halls of the palace or blowing apart the castle walls. Saving princes or battling raging fires. 
A coup is coming to Madra, a battle for the kingdom’s very soul. 
Maybe winning doesn’t mean saving the crown, but only surviving its fall. 

Inspired by the Cinderella story, this is the fairytale as you've never seen it before. 

Glass Kingdom is book one in a duology that is part of the Fantasy and Fairytales series.

Allie has always thought of herself as a loner—until she moves to a new town and finds herself caught up in a dangerous world of immortality and power she never knew existed.
Surrounded by strange new friends and even stranger circumstances, the dark void of her past casts an ominous cloud over Allie’s new life. Sparks fly between Allie and Aidan as she finds herself drawn to him and his friends in ways she can’t explain. 
As Allie approaches her sixteenth birthday, a latent Immortal power awakens deep inside her. She must learn to adapt to her power before it overwhelms her. But she’s sixteen years behind her peers, and as one of the most powerful Immortals of her generation, she has precious little time to catch up. 
As her first gifts begin to emerge, Allie finds her footing, but she still feels like the normal mortal girl she always thought she was. 
But there is nothing normal about Allie Carmichael. 
Allie’s past harbors dark secrets she can't even fathom. Secrets that could not only change her life, but the lives of everyone around her.

Step into Magic: Book 1

by Day Leitao

Not special. Not chosen. But she's got magical shoes.

14-year old Karina doesn’t know what she wants, but knows what she’s found—fascinating silver shoes. Fascinating, dangerous, and potentially evil. On the upside, they do bring cool visitors. When a princess invites her to go to Whyland and save her kingdom, of course she accepts. There’s that little “let’s destroy the shoes” detail she’s not crazy about, but hey, free trip, alternate world. 

But Whyland is nothing like she expected. Karina finds herself stuck in a kingdom she doesn’t understand, with no clue on who to trust. Before saving anyone, she’d better save herself—if she figures out how. 

To make matters worse, as much as the princess is fierce, determined, and brave, she'll jeopardize everything just to reconnect with her boyfriend, almost boyfriend, or whatever. And that might just be their doom.

Immortal Plunder (Pirates of Felicity Book 1)

by Kelly St. Clare

There are three types of people in the Exosian Realm—males, females, and pirates.

I’m a pirate. One with six overprotective fathers for a crew. And if I’m telling the honest truth, not just the pirate truth, having so many fathers is working pretty well for me so far.

When I’m caught eavesdropping on the pirates of Malice, they retaliate with violence, and my fathers become set on revenge. But simple payback cascades into shattering misfortune.

Unexplainable magical happenings and impossible creatures propel me toward a fate much darker than stealing plunder. A terrible beast drags forth horrible truths of my fathers’ pasts which call my entire life into question. Now, my sheltered upbringing is swelling into a furious storm that I must, for the first time in seventeen years, navigate without my crew. 

An intense russet-haired landlubber seeks to help me. A savvy silver-eyed Malice pirate strives to hinder me. But the further I drift, the more I wonder—am I helping or hindering myself?

Can I stand on my own two feet to claim victory?

And if so. . .what will that victory cost?
