The Golden Boys: Dark High School Bully Romance (Kings of Cypress Prep Book 1)

by Nikki Thorne


West Golden—so easy to hate, yet so hard to resist.


Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.

Trust me.

He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.

West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.

This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.

Me.

The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match, and taking him down just became an inside job.

***
The Golden Boys are all smokin’ hot, but there’s only one guy for Blue Riley, which means this romance isn’t a reverse harem. Also, full disclosure, this saga does contain strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (well … eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the book for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will keep you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!

Smooches!

The Unveiled Academy: Two Complete Series: includes Paranormal University and Penny and Boots Series

by Michael Anderle


Claire Hinterland and Penny Hingston might be attending classes on opposite sides of the country, but they share something in common: they can see the ancient beings from myth and legend that are coming through the veil. Which results in both attending classes at Unveiled Academy.

Get both the Penny and Boots Complete Series Omnibus AND Paranormal University Complete Series Omnibus - 8 books total - to attend class and find out how to protect themselves and the world from these creatures.

Paranormal University:
At the University of Paranormal Studies, class is starting.

Claire just received her letter of acceptance despite the fact that she didn’t apply. Why does the university want her?

Because ghosts, vampires, werewolves, elves, dragons…They exist, and more are crossing into our world every day. The problem? Many of them want to kill us.

Claire has a rare ability to actually see these creatures. See? Heck, her best friend is a drunk leprechaun.

Coming from a small town, Claire thought her future prospects were flipping chicken at the local fast food joint. Now she’s traveling to Boston, where she’ll learn how to fight this ‘mythological invasion’. She never thought she’d be in a class called Vampires 101 but…

Claire’s a soldier in this new war – she will be humanity’s most dangerous asset.

And if Claire and her classmates fail? If they don’t learn fast enough and fight hard enough?

Well, graduation won’t matter too much when the world is reduced to ashes.

Penny and Boots:
Not everyone can see the ancient beings from myth and legend as they slip through the veil.

Penny Hingston can’t just see them… she’s best friends with one.

Perhaps that’s how Penny and Boots landed a recruitment letter for the Academy of Myth and Legend.

Who’s Boots? She’s a serpent. Not just any serpent — she’s a Rainbow Serpent, an ancient Australian Dreamtime legend come to life. It's actually not so unusual these days. Mythical creatures are tumbling through the Veil every two seconds. The Academy not only teaches its students how to fight the bad ones, but to protect the good ones as well.

That's why Penny joined. She’s only there to make sure Boots stays safe. Once she figures out a plan, she’s out. At least, that's what she’s trying to convince herself — and her new friends, including Cisco. It's only a coincidence that Penny blushes when he talks to her, really!

Hunter (A Hunter Novel Book 1)

by Mercedes Lackey


They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares.


Monsters.

Long ago, the barriers between our world and the Otherworld were ripped open, and it's taken centuries to bring back civilization in the wake of the catastrophe. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous creatures fighting to break through. Others are not so lucky.

To Joyeaux Charmand, who has been a Hunter in her tight-knit mountain community since she was a child, every Cit without magic deserves her protection from dangerous Othersiders. Then she is called to Apex City, where the best Hunters are kept to protect the most important people.

Joy soon realizes that the city's powerful leaders care more about luring Cits into a false sense of security than protecting them. More and more monsters are getting through the barriers, and the close calls are becoming too frequent to ignore. Yet the Cits have no sense of how much danger they're in-to them, Joy and her corp of fellow Hunters are just action stars they watch on TV.

When an act of sabotage against Joy takes an unbearable toll, Joy uncovers a terrifying conspiracy in the city. There is something much worse than the usual monsters infiltrating Apex. And it may be too late to stop them?

Blood Moon (Wildcat Wizard Book 1)

by Al K. Line


Books 1-3 on sale for a limited time.

Meet Arthur "The Hat" Salzman. Gangster. Wizard. Screwed.


When I was killed for the fifth time, and before breakfast, I knew for sure I'd made a terrible mistake.

It was meant to be a simple job. Steal item, deliver said item to my posh broker, get paid. Easy peasy wizard squeezy.

Blame it on the insomnia, my own greed, or maybe just stupidity, but I swear on my wand I didn't know what was in the bag. If I had, I'd never have got involved.

Soon, every gangster, spook, and magic abuser in the city wanted what I had. But they went too far, broke the Code. Backed up by my faery godmother, and a Stepford mom who's main goal in life was to be my sidekick, the body count escalated as the truth was revealed. And they all forgot one important thing.

The Hat's a goddamn Wildcat Wizard!

Voodoo Academy - The COMPLETE Boxed Set

by Theophilus Monroe


Being possessed has its advantages...

Sure, my soul-bound familiar could be a pain in the ass...

But she came with some pretty impressive abilities. 

A nasty Voodoo demigod, a Loa of Destruction, wants to steal her power. 

Ogoun, the Loa of War, has invited me to join the Voodoo Academy. 

If I master the arts, he tells me, I might have a chance to thwart the demigod's scheme.

But can any of these "gods" be trusted? 

They all have ulterior motives.

And I won't be a pawn in their war. 

But if I don't stop him, if he steals these powers... he could destroy the world. 

I'm an outsider. Not at all like the other students at the academy. I don't think they'll ever accept me.

But if I don't go, if I don't learn to control these abilities... it will mean the end of everything I hold dear. 

Go up and cick 'Read for Free' or 'Buy Now' to find out if Annabelle can master the Voodoo craft... or if the Loa of the Academy will exploit her to advance their own ambitions.  

Theophilus Monroe’s Annabelle Mulledy is a snarky badass heroine with attitude. Monroe draws on the legend and myth of Voodoo lore in a way that neither caricatures the arts as “demonic” nor glosses over the dark side of the Voodoo tradition. With dark magic, dragons, vampires, and a slow burn academy romance the The Voodoo Legacy complete series has something for everybody.

If you enjoy magic academy fantasy books and occult urban fantasy, especially books with a dark twist, then you will love Theophilus Monroe’s Voodoo Legacy.  Fans of authors like Michael Anderle, Martha Carr, Linsey Hall, or Ramy Vance will love this compelling coming of age urban fantasy epic. Pick up your copy today!

Aly Bennet has been in love with her friend Luke for years. She hasn’t told him how she feels for two reasons. 1) She’s the girl with HIV. 2) She lied about how she got it.

Aly never meant to lie. The words just slipped out on her first day of a support group for kids living with life-threatening conditions. It was the day she met Luke and Caroline, who would become her best friends and the closest thing she has to a family. After so many years, Aly doesn’t know how to tell her friends the truth. So she paints and she runs and she tries not to think about the future she can’t have.

But when a Boston prosecutor asks Aly to testify in a trial—and her relationship with Luke intensifies—things become complicated. If she testifies, Luke and Caroline will learn the truth—that Aly has been lying to them for most of a decade. If she doesn’t, a monster could go free, again.

Rock: Young Adult Urban Fantasy (Magic, Action, Adventure, Romance)

by Jan Mau Hill


◆Get thrown out the Guardian Academy - ✓

◆My new adventure turns deadly - ✓✓

◆Start a romance with a dangerous Mage - ✓✓✓

Who says you can't have it all?

I’m Samara Yancy, “Sam” to my friends. For seventeen years I’ve lived on The Rock. A city-state in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by mountains and evergreen trees. The land is lush, the air clean, and dampening fields keep the locals safe from Magic and the Mages who wield it.

Not long ago, I was at the top of my class at the Guardian Academy. After one teeny tiny misstep got me booted from out of there, I hoped a well-paying job on the Mainland would set me up for success.

But I didn’t realize that my new adventure would cause the authorities to label me a potential terrorist. Now, I’m up to my neck in eccentric Mages, including one who views me as his nemesis.

My only choice is to clear my name while trying to keep my ever growing circle of family and friends safe. I’ll just avoid danger while eluding the maniacal Mage who wants me dead.

Piece of cake.

If you like books that are full of action, adventure, with a hint of romance this book is for you.
