Lovelock Ones: Native One by Tricia Copeland
A dystopian young adult story
Despite unparalleled global warming and mandatory genetic typing, Jema and Troy’s high school experience in Port Orford, Oregon seems decent enough. But as a second worldwide flu epidemic threatens, their parents send them to a remote Nevada community. Lovelock is an ancient cave a group has transformed into a base camp. With Jema’s sister’s life in the balance, she and Troy must decide whether to risk exposing the group to save her. Will they jeopardize many for one? Find out in Native One, a young adult novella.
 
After the Noise Dies by Rebecca M. Gibson 
A historical new adult novella
"They turn off the lights with a click. I'm plunged back into darkness, back into hell."
Percy is a lieutenant in The Great War. After an evening attack, that leads to his hospitalisation, his reality begins to crumble. Believing himself captured by the Germans, he has but one hope...if only he can remember her face.
Ida waits in terror for news of her husband. Not long married, she feels lost without him. When the dreaded telegram arrives, she knows she will do absolutely anything to get him back. This is, if he'll let her…
 
Heart Of Life by Eleanor Lloyd Jones
A new adult romance
Trust no one.
Stick together.
Do it your way.
A life of hardships is an endless road for Jess, but with her soul mate by her side, anything is doable; everything is within reach.
Until tragedy strikes...
And when tragedy strikes, it leaves an unsettled feeling in its wake—a feeling that nothing will ever be quite the same again.

A Second Chance by Brooke May
A paranormal new adult story
Derek:
Life isn't all sunshine and love like they tell you when you are a child. Life is about pain, especially mine. I live mine with a daily reminder of the fact that I didn't fight for the woman I love... I didn't go after her when I wanted to.
My heart is wrecked, my chest in a vice, and yet I am somehow supposed to keep going, to live with it...
So day after day, I live with it, until Annabelle walks back into my life, and she is as beautiful as I remember.
Annabelle:
Free is how I have lived since I left Fetterman.
I try my best to ignore the pain of my past, but my mind always turns back to him and all the questions I have. I am stubborn, I'm well aware of that, and I've never been able to bring myself to go back there until now.
The man who is supposed to be my father is ill and I have business to do with him.
I don't expect to see him, Derek.
I don't expect him to be even more handsome than ever... angrier than ever.
I don't know what I expect, and I certainly don't expect a second chance…
 
Returning Home by Riann C. Miller
A contemporary new adult story
"You don’t meet the love of your life when you’re just a kid.
Samantha
I lost count of the times I was told to move on. To get over the boy who stole a piece of my heart and kept it with him long after he unexpectedly left town. You can’t force someone to love you and it’s impossible to love enough for two, but I tried.
My life moved forward. My heartache slowly lessened. My reasons for living evolved but my heart never forgot. That’s why when Luke Runyan finally returned home, he turned my life upside down.
Luke
My world revolved around her. I would do anything to make my girl happy, that included setting her free.
Without my permission, life marched on but when I closed my eyes at night, she was always the first to greet me. I should have known that returning home would wreak havoc on my life and I should have known even one glance in her direction would make leaving without her a second time practically impossible.
 
Half Full by Kate Vine 
A contemporary new adult story
 
Sometimes making the split second decisions are fruitful and give you the best outcome and that’s the best ones.
But what if you made a split second decision and it changed all your life.
Not in the best kind of way.
What if you had to live with regrets of that one night ?
What if that one night changed who you were and made you someone different?
What if that night made you look different?
One decision.
One push of the gas pedal.
...Everything changes...
 
The Heart Of Him by Katie Fox
A contemporary new adult story
One day. One hour. One second.
That’s all it takes for everything to change...
Cassidy Porter is barely holding it together. She lives everyday of her life with a heavy weight on her chest, searching for that one moment when she can catch her breath and not feel the pain that serves as a constant reminder of all that she’s lost.
Until him…
Samuel Copeland spends his days in the local coffee shop, watching and observing, trying to make sense of his life and the second chance he’s suddenly been given. He doesn’t know how to move forward or where to begin.
Until her...
Brought together by fate, or perhaps—more simply—the hearts beating within their chests, the two form an unexpected bond, one that has them asking: can two hearts be destined only to beat for each other?
 
Unbreakable by KM Neuhold
A contemporary new adult story
Amie:
My life was perfect. Perfect fiancĂ©, dream job working as a veterinarian at a local zoo, and crazy awesome friends. And then I got sick. The diagnosis was a complete shock, too much of a shock for my fiancĂ©. Now I’m trying to get my feet back underneath me and figure out what to do now that my time is running out.
Parker:
After years of crushing on my gorgeous, unavailable neighbor she’s finally single and I’m not about to miss my shot with her. The only problem is, something is going on with her. For some reason she’s spiraling out of control and I have every intention of being there to catch her when she hits bottom. She may think she’s alone in whatever she’s going through, but she wasn’t expecting me.

Infallible by Bailey Quinn Release Day

FIRE QUILL PUBLISHING PRESENTS        



An edgy romantic suspense novel written by award wining YA author Carlyle Labuschagne as Bailey Quinn 


                       
THE MOMENT DETECTIVE SCARLET ANNE MARTINS stepped into that prison, her resolve began to wane, a struggle she had long forgotten between heart and head. Unable to deny it any longer, the feelings she had for Alaric were strong—and her desperation to save him, would ultimately be what would killed them both.

For a super cop, her judgment in men truly failed her. But while her life, and anyone's who tried to stop her was in mortal danger, she had to forget every single detail about Special Agent Blade. Her primary focus was getting through the next twenty-four hours without killing anyone.

Thereafter, her purpose would be to find a way to put behind bars those who were framing her for murder, and the bombing in New York City. It would prove to be an almost impossible task, since she had become a fugitive in a foreign country.

This time, her drop-dead gorgeous looks and South African accent would work against her in every way—she would be recognized in a heartbeat on the streets. With nowhere to run, she made the decision to face the peril head on and ensnare the evil that was coming for her, and the only way to do that was by giving them what they wanted.


SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER

Once Bitten, Twice Shy by Kelly Martin Release

Party like it's 1989!

Today is the release day for the VERY LAST book in the Love in the 80s series: ONCE BITTEN, TWICE SHY (Who has the song earwormed in their brain now? You're welcome.)


“What sort of name is Johnny Slade?” My dorm mate, Amy, is laying with her face buried in her pillow, crying so much I’m fairly sure the mascara stains will never wash out. Glad it’s hers and not mine. Last time this happened, I was pillowless for a week. Not my favorite time of life.

“Then again, I guess he didn’t have much say in what his name was.” It is as compassionate as I can get. I’m trying to study. Trying being the operative word. I love Amy. I do. We’ve been dorm mates since freshman year, and we’ve had our share of ups and downs. She can be a little needy, and I’m not the coddling type.

As much as I love living with her, sometimes I’d like to be alone. This is one of those times. I have a massive chem test tomorrow that I’d like not to fail. I know I shouldn’t be mad at Amy, though. It isn’t her fault the dude she dated Saturday night dined her, wooed her, sexed her, and left her.
For the past three days, she’s been stuck by the phone, waiting for it to ring, praying it is Johnny Slade, a man I’ve never met, but I’m fairly sure—according to Amy’s description—has horns.

I wish I could help her. I take that back, I wish she’d help herself by moving on with her life. Seeing as that’s not happening anytime soon, I consider spilling the beans about my little…side business.
It’s for girls just like Amy: girls who have been used, abused, mistreated, or downright screwed over by the men in their life.

Some people might argue that I’m taking advantage of these poor souls in their state of weakness. I say, if they want to pay me, who am I to be their moral compass? I have bills to pay, and the revenge industry pays a hell of a lot more than stripping. And, dare I say it, more fun.

Amy sits up, rivers of black cake on her red cheeks that would make Frank N Furter green with envy. She sniffs a few times and takes a deep breath, “Do you think he lost my number, Nancy?”
Oh my God.

If I had a dollar for every client who called Once Bitten asking the same thing… I wouldn’t need to go to college. I could retire on a beach with a drink and a cabana boy making my every dream come true.

I start to say this to Amy, but I can’t. She’s my friend and I don’t want to hurt her. Yes, I want her to move on; getting lectured from me isn’t the way to go. “I don’t know, Amy. Maybe?”

“You really think so?” Hope. I don’t like hope. Hope kills more than guns, in my opinion.

I smile and pray it doesn’t come off plastic. “It’s possible.”

Amy sits up on her knees straighter, a huge grin reaches from ear to ear.

I wait for it…

I think Bon Jovi sang it best with “Shot Through the Heart.”

It’s like a jolt of understanding hits her right in the guts all at once. Her smile contorts into a Ronald McDonald grimace and, with a sob I’m sure they hear two floors above us, Amy falls face first into her pillow.

I shouldn’t say what is running through my mind. It is tacky and impolite. Truthfully, it does no good now. The deed, as they say, is done. Can’t put the horse back in the barn—as my Grandma Molly said with a warning glare every time she decided to have the “sex” talk with me.

Amy beats me to it. “How could I be so stupid to lose my virginity to him?”

More sobs.

I throw her a tissue box ‘cause I’m nice like that.

“I don’t know, Amy. How could you be so stupid to lose your virginity to him?” Tactful? No. But damn, it is a question I’ve wanted answered since she strolled in here Sunday night with her hair teased and distressed more than normal, her tights ripped, and her shirt pulled way, way off the shoulder even for her. I don’t think he was easy on her.

Amy shakes her head in the pillow. “Dnwo loo lear bet wiered a feing a foudee-foudee…”

Muffled pillow talk isn’t my major. “Sorry, didn’t catch that.”

She lifts her head and glares at me with through squinty, tear filled eyes. “Don’t you ever get tired of being a goody-goody, Nancy? We’re seniors in college. Don’t you ever want to throw the virginity card out the window and have some fun once in a while?”

I don’t mean to laugh. I can’t stop myself. I’m a horrible person. “Yeah, ‘cause you look like you’ve been having fun the last three days.”

Honestly, if that’s what it feels like to get close to someone, to let them get close to me, then no. I’d rather stay where I am in life and do what I do to make ends meet, thank you very much. I get close. I take pictures. I turn to blackmail. I get paid for it. What is wrong with that?

“That’s not what I mean.”

“I go out.” I sigh, this chemistry test won’t study itself.

“You go to the library and study. That isn’t going out.”

If she only knew. Most of those “study” trips were dates with the exes of clients. Revenge is different for everyone. I aim to please.

Amy dries up her tears mighty quickly and looks at me like she pities me. Oh for the love of…
“I feel sorry for you. I really do.”

Funny how coherent she sounds now. “That a fact?”

“It is. You have no life. No prospects of a boyfriend, and yeah, maybe Johnny Slade did break my heart, but at least I put my heart out there. What have you done?”

Gotten paid to serve up revenge. “Nothing as worthwhile as you.” I grab my book and my bag. There is no way I’m getting any studying done here tonight.

“Where are you going?”

“Out.”

“Fine,” she huffs.

“Fine.” I head for the door when our phone rings.

She looks at me.

I look at her.

I know what she’s thinking. She’s wishing for Johnny Slade.

I know what I’m thinking… I hope it isn’t a client. So far I’ve been lucky. She’s never answered a call for me, but I know the time is coming. I need to be honest with her, but now isn’t that time.

She reaches for the phone. I throw my stuff down and dive for it.

It fumbles out of her hands and into mine. “Hello?” I say before she can grab it from my hand.

“Is it Johnny?” she whispers.

I motion for her to be quiet.

“Once Bitten?” the female voice on the other end of the line says.

Amy’s big, black stained eyes plead with me to tell me who it is. I’m pleading with her to let it go. 
“Hi, Dad. It’s good to hear your voice.” I say, causing Amy to run from the room in an outburst of epic proportions.

“Excuse me?” The young woman on the other side of the line doesn’t seem to catch on very quickly.

“Never mind. Please talk quickly. How did you get this number?”

“Friend of a friend.”

Just like they all do. “What can I help you with?”

“My name is Dana Knox.”

I nearly drop the phone. I know her! Holy cow! Dana Knox has been all over People Magazine and Teen Beat for the last six months or so for dating Senator Harris’ son: Beautiful Socialite Tames Wild Political Heir Romeo.  “Chad Harris needs to pay.”
