Heiress of Embers: A Sleeping Beauty retelling (Kingdom of Fairytales Book 2) 

by J.A. Armitage

What happened after the happily ever after?

With the dragons attacking and the kingdom falling apart, Azia must find out about her history to make changes to her future, but heading up the mountains to see the dragons is a downright insane idea. 
Fortunately for Azia, she was never one to let a spark of insanity stop her doing anything. With a cast of characters including a witch, a seer, dwarves and of course dragons, Heiress of Embers is the second spellbinding instalment of the Kingdom of Fairytales.

Following famous fairytale characters, eighteen years after their happily ever after, the Kingdom of Fairytales offers an edge of the seat thrill ride in an all new and sensational way to read.

Dating My Best Friend (Redefining Me Book 1) 

by Michelle MacQueen and Ann Maree Craven

Peyton:

The kiss was perfect. 

The accident that followed was tragic.

Eighteen months have passed and I haven’t seen Cameron since that night. My best friend kissed me and then ghosted me.

Fifty pounds later and I’m the F word. No, not that F word. This one has three letters that have haunted me my entire life. 

Now, Cameron Tucker is back. 

But who am I kidding? Peyton Callahan doesn’t get the guy. 

Cameron:

The kiss was a huge mistake. 

The accident ruined my life.

I kissed my best friend and then abandoned her. Now I’m back. 

I don’t regret loving her. I only wish she’d forgotten me and that incredible kiss.  

Because I know her. Peyton pushes buttons and pries into secrets. 

And this secret I’ve returned with? 

Let’s just say my label has a lot more than three letters.

When Wishes Bleed  

by Casey L. Bond

One Prince. One Witch. One Fate. 

The upheaval in my life began the moment a prince stumbled into my house and asked me to read his fortune. Any other night, I might have made an excuse to get him to leave, but this was no normal visit. My fingers prickled to touch him. So, I granted his request by handing him a single wishbone. When he snapped it, the wish … bled.


Hearing me suck in a shocked breath, he asked what it meant. Such an ominous omen could only mean one thing: his death was imminent. Fate revealed that he wouldn’t die of natural causes. Someone wanted him dead. Stunned by the revelation, the man I now knew as Prince Tauren disappeared into a night I feared he wouldn’t survive. 


The following day, I received an invitation to the castle. While it seemed the prince believed I could intervene and uncover who was plotting his death, his motives didn’t stop there. I was being summoned to join twelve other women in vying for the opportunity to be his wife and future queen. Going could mean jeopardizing my plans to reclaim my heritage and resurrect the House of Fate. But staying would guarantee Tauren’s death, and the blood of his wish would be on my hands.

The Wrong Costar

by Alexandra Moody

When Teagan lands the lead in her school play, the last thing she expected was for Hollywood heartthrob and notorious bad-boy Liam Black to be cast as her costar. The whole school is buzzing with his arrival, but she couldn't be more annoyed. How can she possibly shine on stage when the limelight is focused entirely on him?

Liam might be at Lincoln High to prepare for his next movie role, but just because he can act doesn't mean he's the perfect guy for the part. He's got a bad reputation. He doesn't take their play seriously. And, worst of all, he and Teagan can't stand each other.

They'll have to learn to work together if they want the play to be a success, but the more time they spend together the harder it is to ignore the sparks flying between them on stage. 

Good chemistry is just a part of acting though. Teagan and Liam are only pretending. Right?
