A talented runner fully committed to Olympic dreams, Sabrina Rice's future was shattered by a devastating diagnosis. One forfeited scholarship and several years later, she has new goals and dreams that have nothing to do with running--something that's become far too painful to think on.

Until the day she sees Brandy Philip running across the community college campus, easily outpacing security. Sabrina immediately recognizes world-class speed, and it's all the more painful that it belongs to a teenage graffiti artist. When a chance encounter brings the two young women together, Sabrina becomes Brandy's best hope for staying out of juvenile hall. Soon, Sabrina begins to feel an uncomfortable nudge that her new life is just about to be toppled...that God may be calling her to minister to this talented but troubled girl.

Richard Fitzwilliam was tasked with watching over Georgiana and seeing her married to a deserving gentleman. The problem is finding a gentleman he approves of; not even his closest friends are deemed worthy of her hand.

When scandal breaks and all Georgiana’s worst fears seem to come true, will Richard realize in time how deep his affections run, or will they lose their chance at happiness?

 

A door that leads nowhere…
a key to open it.
A map of a land that doesn’t exist,
and a monster that does.

Four sisters; a hypochondriac scientist, a mordant writer, and two feisty twins aspiring to be pirates, set off to retrieve their eldest sister who has been kidnapped into an unknown world.

Their adventure involves a grim prophecy from the oracle Sybil, help from a rugged viking named Barnabas, and the ever terrifying presence of Brakkus the dark-hooded villain who is in constant pursuit of them. The four sisters must work together to outwit the creature Brakkus, face their fears, and unravel the clues of an ominous prophecy to find their sister before time runs out…

“Follow the river of blood and you will find a coffin of leaves... You will find her in the clutches of two great forces seeking power. They both prowl behind curtains of violence, but one can deliver only evil and the other, possible freedom. The one you seek is in the jaws of the deliverers, but you must hurry, for like meat thrown to dogs she will be ripped apart.”

 

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.

*** EXCERPT ***

On Saturday, having spent Friday night apart, they agreed to rendezvous at her apartment at 10am. She had forgotten all about the conversation, the week being hectic enough without his antics. So when she answered her door at 10am, she was surprised and delighted to find a giant bouquet of balloons standing there.

"Hey, what's up?" came Garrett's voice from behind, as if nothing was out of the ordinary. She adopted a straight face, holding the door open.

"C'mon in," she replied, and he and the giant balloon bouquet stepped in, awkwardly. Once he had discarded his shoes and coat, he plopped himself on the couch, letting the balloons float to the top of her ceiling. Standing, the strings hung in her face, and so she ducked under them, sitting beside him.

"What's all this for?"

"Well..." his grin was mischievous and his eyes were sparkling. He was clearly having a good day today, with colour in his cheeks and a spring in his step. He reached up, pulling down a red balloon and shook it. It rattled, something inside was bouncing around. "I was thinking about all the awesome things you do for me. It always kind of starts like a balloon, really small, and then the situation gets bigger and bigger until it explodes. But in the midst of that chaos, that explosion, there you are, with something awesome, to fix it." Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a box of safety pins. Opening the lid, he extracted one and unpinned it.

Watching, fascinated by what he could possibly come up with next, Sephora covered her ears and holding the balloon away from her face, he popped it.

Red latex exploded everywhere, and just as he had hoped, a gift fell into her lap...

Can Anna begin a new life without him?

 

If you're a fan of Veronica Mars, Nancy Drew, author Janet Evanovich's books on Stephanie Plum or author Meg Cabot's Size 12 books on Heather Wells check this book series out!

Sixteen year old Kait Lenox has a reputation as the weird girl in her high school, mostly because of her ex-best friend turned mean popular girl, Ariel, but maybe it has a little to do with the fact that Kait has a hobby crashing funerals. At one of these, Kait is outted by the most popular guy in school, Ethan Ripley. Yet, instead of humiliating her for all the world to see, he asks for her help, and Kait finds herself entangled in a murder mystery. Not only is the thrill of the mystery exciting, but more importantly Ethan knows her name! A little sleuthing is well worth that!

 

In real life, she’s given up on the fairytale ending...

After having her heart broken twice, Alicia Dayne has sworn off men, decided to concentrate on her career, and is delighted to win a lucrative contract to make a commercial for Highborn Mattresses.

She could make the most awesome fairytale commercial ever—except for Jonas Highborn, who isn’t exactly thrilled with her Princess and the Pea ideas, and really doesn’t want a prince in tights representing his company.


Though he’s trying to keep his grieving mother happy by letting her have charge of the commercial shoot, and though Alicia’s trying to keep in mind that this annoying guy is her boss for the moment, they can’t seem to keep from clashing.


Throw in an overly-handsome prince, a matchmaking mama, and a stunning rose garden, and maybe, just maybe, Alicia can be convinced they have a chance at something real.

Because while she might not be a real princess, sometimes an ordinary girl’s got to take a chance, even when it seems too good to be true.

When did Happily Ever After become so complicated?

 

With Love, Cowboy by Lacy Williams, a sweet inspirational romance
 
When the love of his life is injured in combat, Ryan Michaels promises himself he won't let any more time go by without ensuring she knows that he loves her. His problem? Ashley still sees him as the goofy high school kid that followed her everywhere.

Ashley Reynolds returns home to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, a wounded veteran, with her Military Working Dog at her side. She's concerned about her aging parents and doesn't have time for a relationship--especially not one with a college dropout like Ryan.

But as Ashley dives back into the life she left behind, she discovers there's much more to Ryan than she thought... there's a man of honor and integrity. Will she open her heart and let Ryan in?

*  USA TODAY on Lacy Williams’s historical romance ROPING THE WRANGLER:  "A great pick to toss into your beach bag for one of those last weekend trips before the leaves start to fall… a sweet inspy romance that will draw you into the old west and send you away smiling."   
 
*  Wendy the SuperLibrarian on Return of the Cowboy Doctor:  "Writing is never easy, but sometimes I think achieving "sweet" (or "gentle") is exceptionally hard for a writer to pull off.  Lacy Williams is my go-to author for when I simply want a sweet, gentle read that won't send me into a diabetic coma."
