Hitched: The Bachelorette (GK DeRosa)

Author: GK DeRosa

Expected publication: March 19th, 2019


 One innocent human girl. Twenty-five supernatural bachelors. Six weeks to choose the one.

When struggling actress Kimmie-Jayne Starr discovers she’s snagged the starring role on the next huge reality TV show, Hitched, she thinks all her dreams have finally come true. But as soon as she lands on the beautiful island of Mystic Cove, something feels wrong. 

Sure, the twenty-five bachelors are heart-stoppingly gorgeous, but she’s certain they’re all hiding something—something supernatural. As she gets to know the guys, protecting her heart proves impossible when she finds herself irresistibly drawn to more than just one. 

As a string of strange accidents on set grow deadlier, Kimmie realizes there’s much more to this dating show than she ever could’ve imagined. If she can’t figure out who’s behind these incidents, she’ll end up risking more than just her heart.

The Rise Of Magicks (Nora Roberts)

Author: Nora Roberts

Expected publication: November 26th, 2019

 Publisher: St Martin's Press


The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Year One and Of Blood and Bone concludes her stunning trilogy that the New York Times Book Review praised as "A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King's The Stand."

The first battle is already over, but the big fight for good and evil is yet to come: The young Fallon leads their army to Washington D.C., to drive the black magic out of the world. She is the chosen one to rebuild the world after the apocalypse and unite her inhabitants. There is a great burden on the young woman, because the family of her father's murderer seeks revenge on her and her sweetheart. But Fallon's mission is now easier than the interpretation of her feelings for Duncan, whose fate is inevitably tied to hers.

Prophecy (Cassandra Morgan)

Author: Cassandra Morgan

Expected publication: March 14th, 2019


In a land torn asunder by forbidden magic, four friends hold the key to saving the realm... or destroying it. 

Jayson, Jack, and Leo never imagined wandering through the woodlands of Ohio could cause them to be whisked away to a fantasy world - but that's exactly what happened. Trapped within the world of Chartile, a land on the brink of ruin, they have no clue how to wield their newfound and outlawed magic, let alone save a kingdom. With their new friend, Piper, they discover an ancient prophecy which may be the realm's last hope. And if the prophecy is to be believed, Jayson, Jack and Leo are the reincarnated souls of Chartile's ancient kings, their return long ago foretold to right the wrongs of the land. With an Elven Princess bent on taking every last bit of Chartile as her own, and a Dwarvik society on the brink of civil war, these friends must come together to save the realm, or risk losing everything. It's safe to say, getting home is the least of their problems. 

An enchanting young adult epic fantasy novel with dwarves, elves and magic, Prophecy is the first book in the brand-new Kingdoms of Chartile series. Exciting, fresh, and fun, Prophecy tests the power of friendship against the strength of evil. Teens and adults both will become obsessed with the incredible world author Cassandra Morgan has created.

Resurrection Girls (Ava Morgyn)

Author: Ava Morgyn

Expected publication: October 1st, 2019

 Publisher: AW Teen

 Olivia Foster hasn’t felt alive since her little brother drowned in the backyard pool three years ago. Then Kara Hallas moves in across the street with her mother and grandmother, and Olivia is immediately drawn to these three generations of women. Kara is particularly intoxicating, so much so that Olivia not only comes to accept Kara's morbid habit of writing to men on death row, she helps her do it. They sign their letters as the Resurrection Girls.

But as Kara’s friendship pulls Olivia out of the dark fog she’s been living in, Olivia realizes that a different kind of darkness taints the otherwise lively Hallas women—an impulse that is strange, magical, and possibly deadly.

Escaping Tatum City was all Lune wanted. Now that she’s out, freedom is beyond her reach more than ever. Her adoptive father knows her weaknesses. And if she fails to find Bren and complete her mission, he won’t hesitate to exploit each one.

To complicate matters further, Ryker, her wildly unpredictable companion, has a mission of his own. Lune quickly discovers that he'll do whatever is necessary to see it through too.

As the dangers of the outside world threaten to undo her, Lune must adapt to survive every new challenge. Because everything she knows, everything she’s been fighting for, is about to change.

Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Shatter Me series, THE ELITE TRIALS trilogy is the gripping story of Lune “Tatum” Avery as she fights for freedom in a futuristic dystopian world plagued by danger, secrets, and betrayal. An emotional, action-packed journey of resilience, second chances, and fierce love.
