Thirteen year old fashionista Coco Franks has finally made it into the popular group when her dad decides to move the whole family to the country so they can 'bond'. Social death is looming, her shoes are covered in mud and all Coco wants to do is get herself back to her city friends. After all, things can't get any worse, right?

 

Imagine if someone offered you millions of dollars to solve a simple secret code. Would you try to solve it in your spare time or postpone everything in your life until you figured out the solution?

Brock Manion, a talented graphic artist living on the Southern California coast, is faced with just such a dilemma. After graduating from UCSD, his life is fueled by two dangerous passions—surfing big waves and racing a 300-mph jet dragster. Among the male members of his family, the courage to perform death-defying acts seemed to be genetic—something built into their DNA. The allure of danger led them to take risks for the sheer reward of an adrenalin rush. However, possessing an extra Y-chromosome does not provide the type of courage needed when confronted with a spiritual dilemma.

Return To Violet illuminates the power of forgiveness and reveals how it affects the hearts and lives of those who least expect it. The story provides readers with suspense, adventure, humor, passion...and perhaps even a bit of enlightenment.

 

Since early childhood, Yvonne has had many reasons to suspect that she is different from the other people:
She often experiences telepathic and psychic phenomena.
She is eminent for her high intelligence and good character.
She never wishes to harm anybody; she wouldn't know how, either.
As a result, the others underestimate her and show it to her at the first opportunity.

During adolescence, new problems appear:
Gangs of hostile persons seem to be lurking for her everywhere, always ready to deride and terrorize her without any apparent reason.
Moreover, she is constantly dogged by negative omens, bad luck and odd coincidences.
Every time things seem to be getting better, finally everything goes wry and she ends up worse than before.
She comes to believe that she is a target of visible and invisible evil forces.

Reaching adulthood, her life takes an unhoped turn for the better.
Her wildest dreams seem to be on their way to materialization.
But is it so?

 

Introverted and bookish, Jessica Tye isn't coping well with her new life in London. She pours out her feelings in a long, rambling letter to Kennedy Orr, star of the dazzling hit musical MARINA, a show with which she's become completely obsessed.
Of course, she has no intention of posting the letter, of looking like just another silly fan. It's simply a form of emotional release, isn't it? To be torn up afterwards.....

Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.

Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.

The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.

 

Maid of honor, Farley, has five days to put together a society wedding and only three groomsmen to help her. Plus a best man she hates. And loves. ...Definitely hates.

For some reason her friends and employers, CK and Ryan, have decided to move their wedding day up by eight months. There’s no way Farley can pull off a New York extravaganza worthy of an heiress in such a short amount of time.

Then she finds out why they’re in a hurry.

Determined to succeed, Farley uses anything and everything at her disposal, including making Ryan’s friends play bridesmaids. Working closely with best man, Brad, while still keeping her distance isn’t quite as easy.

If only what happened in Atlantic City could have stayed in Atlantic City.

It’s a crazy dash to the alter for everyone as Farley fights to thwart sabotage, corrals Ryan’s kooky friends, and does her best to ignore feelings that refuse to be filed under “big mistake”.

Will Brad find a way to prove they’d be great together? Or will stubbornness and pride get the better of both of them?

And she’s given up on ever getting Ethan, the boy she’s liked forever, to notice her. Desperate, Mandy makes a wish to simply be happy.

Enter Desiree, a hippie from Woodstock serving a fifty-year indenture as a Wish Mistress (aka a genie). Years of only granting and never receiving her own wish have left Desiree bitter. Arranging for Mandy to right her biggest wrong – the exact thing Desiree would wish for – only makes things worse.

Still, Desiree does her job and grants the wish and happiness arrives for Mandy in the form of Lexi, her childhood imaginary friend come to life. Magical wishes have conditions though: Once started, the wish cannot be altered or revoked. Also, once Mandy is truly content with her life again, Lexi must go back to where she came from. However, the longer Lexi is alive the more she loves being alive, and she’ll do whatever it takes to stay that way.

Winner of the SILVER MEDAL in the 2014 Readers' Favorite annual International Award Contest—Category YA Paranormal Romance. Ever since she can remember, Sonia has had to abide by her parents' ridiculously unfair rules like not being allowed to date or even kiss a guy. The only reason she thinks she's being held to these rules is when Sonia was eight, she took a sip of her friend’s drink, causing her friend to do everything Sonia asked. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Sonia is finally about to learn why; she's a Huldra, a dangerous, yet seductive and magical Norse forest maiden who with just one kiss, has the ability to control humans and appropriate parts of their souls. Keeping the rules hasn't been a problem for Sonia because she's never really been attracted to any guy. But when Anthony transfers to her school, every last rule flies out the window. There's just something about Anthony that she can't resist—the way he seems to be hiding a deep, dark secret that is connected to her, the way his mysterious blue eyes cause her heart to beat more rapidly, his athletic, god-like physique. The closer she gets to her eighteenth birthday—the moment she matures into a fully realized Huldra—the more she finds herself obsessing about him. As graduation day approaches, Anthony starts to show interest in her, but she would never have guessed how life-changing and how dangerous Anthony's secrets are, and how overwhelmingly intense a relationship with him could be.

Nobody noticed as it swept around the globe - until billions began to die. Then it got a name: The Lethargy. Everyone just gave up, all interest in life relentlessly gnawed away.

Marcus was different - he became something else: Awoken. A man able to bend reality to his will and peel back the layers of the complex world he found himself alone in.

His only true desire was to help safeguard mankind's future, so The Commorancy was constructed - a fabled safe haven for those lucky enough to get an invitation after passing his strict and convoluted entry requirements. But there are those out to ensure humanity is wiped from the planet entirely, led by a tattooed red man that will stop at nothing.

Three hundred years living a life that was never meant to be means that Marcus' grip on reality is becoming severely warped. When fifteen year old Letje finally gets her invitation she finds herself completely out of her depth. Haughty goats, an almost mythical man obsessed with changing his clothes at every available opportunity, and doors that go whoosh don't help her situation as the very future of mankind hangs in the balance.

With elements of fantasy, sci-fi and gothic otherworldliness The
Commorancy is an exciting new dystopian series that revels in the bizarre.
A vividly constructed world with engrossing characters transports you to a
future all too possible yet fantastical. Entertaining, thought provoking, and
odd - in a good way.

 

In this coming of age debut trilogy, USA Today bestseller Micah Caida turns dystopian young adult fiction on its ear with a breathtakingly fresh science fiction, fantasy story that is as much a thriller as it is a romantic tale.

Rayen’s memory is blank. Her future's in question. Her power is dangerous.

I awoke in an unknown desert landscape that I felt I should recognize, yet I have no real memory of this place or…who I am. A strange ghost told me my name and that I’m seventeen, but he disappeared just as I could have used some help. I was captured along with others my age who said the land was called Albuquerque, then I was handed over to a private school where at times things are as familiar as the nearby mountain range and as alien as seeing a reflection of my face. Everyone thinks I’m a Native American runaway, whatever that is, but the school has offered me a place to stay until they learn my true identity, or my memory returns. As if things aren’t confusing enough, while stuck with a cocky computer-savvy boy and a gifted, but oddball, girl the three of us discovered a secret that threatens the existence of this world - and the future. In the middle of all this, I'm drawn to a seventeen-year-old boy who is as deadly as he is attractive and thinks I’m the enemy.

"I was totally captivated by every scene in the first book...The imagination of Micah Caida takes the reader on an exhilarating journey…TIME TRAP is originality at its best." ~~Amelia Richard, SingleTitles
