(Contemporary romance that does not contain explicit language or sex.)

 

...I scrunched up my eyes in an attempt to see. "Why do you sound like you're in another room? You're going the wrong way. You have to walk to us."

The darkness was so complete, like a black room with no light. "Okay, on three, we're all going to scream. Someone will hear us. Mom and Dad are for sure caught up by now. One, two, three!"

"Help!" We screamed as loud as we could, over and over. When we couldn't scream anymore, our throats too sore, a flickering of light came back on and the skeleton waved at me.

"Welcome to the haunted house, where guests stay forever and the dead linger on to play."

Not-quite-sixteen year old Lizbet Moore expects a boring last month of summer vacation -- and she gets what she’s expecting until a fifteen hundred year old Fae named Eamon shows up in her backyard disguised as a down-on-his-luck garden gnome. When Eamon slips an ancient amulet around her neck, the memories of Lizbet’s many past lives, including her first life as Morgan Le Fae, come slamming back to her to change her summer plans in a way she could never have expected.

Forced to go on the run when murderous monks show up at the back door, Lizbet hops a plane to Scotland accompanied by Eamon, the whispering voices of her past lives, and geekily cute James, the college boy from next door. Not only does she have to dodge the monks, but she’s racing against time and greedy land developers to prevent the entire race of the Fae from being destroyed.

The only thing Lizbet knows for sure is that if she fails and can't produce a few live fairies at the end of her journey, she is going to be grounded for life...and probably for her next life, too.

 

Beneath the dark streets of London they played a dangerous game with trains. Now it is their only chance for survival...

Britain in 2075 is a dangerous place. A man known only as the Governor rules the country with an iron hand, but within the towering perimeter walls of London Greater Urban Area anarchy spreads unchecked through the streets.

In the abandoned London Underground station of St. Cannerwells, a group of misfits calling themselves the Tube Riders seek to forget the chaos by playing a dangerous game with trains. Marta is their leader, a girl haunted by her brother’s disappearance. Of the others, Paul lives only to protect his little brother Owen, while Simon is trying to hold on to his relationship with Jess, daughter of a government official. Guarding them all is Switch, a man with a flickering eye and a faster knife, who cares only about preserving the legacy of the Tube Riders. Together, they are family.

Everything changes the day they are attacked by a rival gang. While escaping, they witness an event that could bring war down on Mega Britain. Suddenly they are fleeing for their lives, pursued not only by their rivals, but by the brutal Department of Civil Affairs, government killing machines known as Huntsmen, and finally by the inhuman Governor himself.

Excerpt from The Tube Riders (Chapter One)

"As the others said their goodbyes and left, Marta stood for a moment, looking out across the park towards the huge elevated highway overpass that rose above the city to the south. Half finished, it arched up out of the terraces and housing blocks to the east, rising steadily to a height of five hundred feet. There, at the point where it should have begun its gradual decent to the west, it just ended, sawn off, amputated.

Years ago, she remembered her father standing here with her, telling her about the future. Things had been better then. She’d still been going to school, still believed the world was good, still had dreams about getting a good job like a lawyer or an architect and hadn’t started to do the deplorable things that made her wake up shivering, just to get food or the items she needed to survive.

He had taken her hand and given it a little squeeze. She still remembered the warmth of his skin, the strength and assurance in those fingers. With his other arm he had pointed up at the overpass, in those days busy with scaffolding, cranes and ant-like construction workers, and told her how one day they would take their car, and drive right up over it and out of the city. The government was going to open up London Greater Urban Area again, he said. Let the city people out, and the people from the Greater Forest Areas back in. The smoggy, grey skies of London GUA would clear, the sirens would stop wailing all night, and people would be able to take the chains and the deadlocks off their doors. She remembered how happy she’d felt with her father’s arms around her, holding her close, protecting her.

But something had happened. She didn’t know everything – no one did – but things had changed. The government hadn’t done any of those things. The construction stopped, the skies remained grey, and life got even worse. Riots waited around every street corner. People disappeared without warning amid tearful rumours that the Huntsmen were set to return.

Marta sighed, biting her lip. Her parents and her brother were gone. Marta was just twenty-one, but St. Cannerwells Park was the closest she would ever get to seeing the countryside, and the euphoria of tube riding was the closest she would ever get to happiness.

She gripped the fence with both hands and gritted her teeth, trying not to cry. She was tough. She had adjusted to Mega Britain’s harshness, was accustomed to looking after herself, but just sometimes, life became too much to bear.

As the rain began to get heavier, tears pressed from her eyes and rolled down her cheeks."

Lauren Phelps has never learned to love in the right place.

When a long term engagement turns into a dead end, Lauren decides on a fresh start a hundred miles away. She arrives determined to make room in her heart for her childhood friend Blake, a young pastor newly installed in a distant suburb of Boston.

He should be the ideal match for a Christian woman ready to start on married life, but Lauren’s reverence for the beautiful world around her goes unappreciated by him, and she’s wondering if she will ever be understood. Waiting for a pragmatic romance to take shape isn’t enough to fill all her lonely hours, so she agrees to a side job looking after the flower garden at Mrs. Tripp’s vacation house…

When Benjamin Tripp comes to spend the summer at his mother’s beach house, he brings his wine and his paintings, and intends to leave everything else behind. But his half-acknowledged longing for a meaningful relationship refuses to be forgotten. The freedom of one night stands has proved less satisfying than he thought it would be, and he can’t stop searching for something he doesn’t know how to find…

A chance conversation about modern art sparks a friendship that leaves Lauren unsettled. How can Benjamin understand so many things that she holds true, and yet reject the faith that sustains her? And what will she do when he challenges her to choose between her God and her heart?

Love Divine is an exploration of the Christian faith, a meditation on the dynamics of relationships, and a closer look at what makes us stop and wonder at the world round us.

Tuesday’s Freebies to Feed Your Reader (10/28)

the best moments in reading 

The moon glimmered brightly that Seattle October night. Magical; cold, crisp and clear -- as it almost never was. Streams of miniscule princesses, pirates and even oversized vampires trekked to Savannah Wentworth’s historic estate. She would log 2,100 pieces of candy before closing the door for the last time. It was sold, the ancestral home; papers would be signed the following day. She didn’t have to pass out candy, or face curious neighbors … or make dozens of candied apples or litter the front porch with pumpkins and hay bales. But she did. Family traditions ran deep.

While that bittersweet night was an ending … a new beginning arrives with a broom, a couple of black bags, and two helping hands. Somewhat annoyed, she unknowingly meets Austin Douglass, self-made tech mogul, and the estate’s new owner.

Savannah is a member of Seattle’s old-money elite with an impeccable pedigree and business prowess … until, of course, it was swept away in the economic downturn. To settle debt, she sold everything, including the ancestral home. And Christmas is just around the corner.

Austin Douglass grew up on an Eastern Washington wheat farm. He knew two things and promised one; the hum of the combine and a sun-scorched day’s labor, and that he wouldn’t stay there. Now, in IPO preparations, he needs deep-pocket investors. Life has little prepared him for entertaining Seattle elite. Through a colleague, he meets someone who is.

Savannah is a traditionalist, Austin, a minimalist. They are polar opposites. She is losing her family estate, he is gaining one.

As the holidays brighten the city and snow falls ever so magically, as time-honored Christmas traditions are celebrated, can these two breach their differences? Journey with them and discover if there is a path leading … Home for Christmas.

 

Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your memories.

Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she's supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.

Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah's memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soulmate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.

While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.
