Wicked Origins by Paula Black

Wicked Origins by Paula Black

I have no idea what’s happening to me.
When a tornado dropped my car in a land of short, wild people, I was shocked. With no way to get home, no idea where I was and no clue how to communicate with the muchkins, I was completely out of luck. Then I found out that my car had landed on someone and killed them. Supposedly she was the Wicked Witch of the East.
If that wasn’t bad enough, now her ruby slippers magically appear on my feet, and slowly, I’m becoming her.
Now I need to get to Emerald City and see the Wizard if I want to stop the transformation and return home. But the yellow brick road is no cake-walk, and I don’t know what I’ll find at the end of this journey. Luckily, I have three brothers I meet along the way to help me on my journey. Each of them is vying for my affection, as if it doesn’t matter that my skin is turning green.
Wicked Origins is a modern YA Reverse-Harem Fantasy Retelling of L. Frank Baum’s original Oz tales.

On Sale for $.99
Avery Castle carries the weight of a thousand moments of sorrow.
Donavan Hardy carries enough anger for them both.

When they were young, Donavan learned sign language so he could talk to the deaf beauty. He cared, even when Avery’s influential father couldn’t be bothered with her “flaw.”

In spite of things, the bad boy made her fall in love with sound… with music.

They couldn’t have been any more different, but he was always meant to protect her, just like she was always meant to calm his rage.

And then, Avery’s world came crashing down when the love of her life disappeared without a trace, leaving her broken-hearted and pregnant. She loses her baby, the last bit of him she has left, and her world plunges deeper into darkness.
Seven years of hurt, confusion, and pain collide when they are thrown back together. Avery has to decide if the life she’s been living with the sizzling Cuban cop, whom her father approves of, is worth not having Donovan back in her life.
But Donavan is fighting for her forgiveness, to prove that deep-seeded secrets far greater than their love tore them apart.
Donavan will force Avery to return the key to her heart no matter the cost…

Make Me Stay 2 – New Release

When the story ends, you just know the couple walk away with a ‘Happily Ever After’ . . .

Donavan Hardy wished that was his fate. Donnie loved Avery Castle with every part of his being. It seemed they were about to have it all. Then his past came knocking, threatening to tear it all down. Avery’s father sowed doubt everywhere he could. Life was slipping through Donavan’s fingers. But nothing would stop him from being the man and father Avery and their children needed him to be. Not even if it meant facing his worst fears and reliving a past he thought was over.

Donnie had always been Avery’s world. They were destined to be together since they were kids. The fire between them could set the world ablaze. But could they truly ever be happy? She spent her whole life being the deaf girl, being told how to live, that was until Donavan claimed her and fueled her passions. She had to decide if it was worth it. The uncertainty, the danger. Was the passion Donavan made Avery feel worth the cost of her sanity?

Make Me Stay Two is a second chance contemporary romance about the trials and tribulations of love. In this captivating tale, love, hate and everything in between cast a singular spell. And if Avery and Donavan’s relationship proves anything… it’s that love is louder than anything else.

Being a princess is hard. Especially when you’re just a little OCD.

And your twin goes missing.

Sure, Princess Eloise is Future Ruler and Heir to the Western Lands and All That Really Matters. And yes, her life is structured by Protocol and full of little “habits” that help her get through the day.

But none of that matters when her twin sister disappears.

Eloise has to suck it up to try and get her back.

She sets out with her champion (a nervous, yammering chipmunk), her guard (the human incarnation of rectitude), and two horses (one an equine perfection, the other on a vow of silence). Like a kind of fantasy-world Gilligan’s Island meets Discworld, a quick little two-day jaunt turns into traipsing across realms. sniffing out a trail that is getting colder by the minute.

The Purple Haze is a humorous novel set in a world of weak magic, talking animals, and wäÿ töö mänÿ ümläüts. If you like quirky, clever characters, lively dialog, and fun, ripping yarns, then you’ll love this fabulous debut novel from Andrew Einspruch.

The Star of Whatever (The Western Lands and All That Really Matters Book 2)

The slightly OCD princess was doing just fine, thanks.

Then she got thrown to her death.

That might have put a crimp in things.

Princess Eloise, Future Ruler and Heir to the Western Lands and All That Really Matters, swallowed back her “habits” and went after her missing twin sister.

She found her.

Awesome!

And then they both got chucked into the mysterious, magical, deadly Purple Haze.

Less awesome!

While her champion (a nervous, yammering chipmunk) and her guard (the human incarnation of rectitude) rot in prison and her two horses desperately try to find some way to help, Eloise and her sister go deeper into the Purple Haze to discover the source of the inner tug they both feel.

The Heartbreak Cowboy by Mina Beckett Book Tour

*Old flames burn hotter the second time around…*

It’s been four long years since McCrea Coldiron watched Eleanor Mackenna
walk out of his life. He wasn’t ready for the marriage noose then and never
thought he would be. Single, free to do as he pleases, and running the
Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch are the things that make him sure he was
right to let Eleanor go… This is until she comes back to town with a
daughter he never knew about in tow.

Eleanor knows just how badly McCrea can burn a woman and how persuasive
he can be when he wants something, so she’s more than cautious about
his charming words and cocky grin when she comes home to arrange the
sale of her grandparents’ ranch. But when a flat tire in a thunderstorm
introduces four-year-old Sophie to her daddy, Eleanor knows McCrea’s love
for his daughter is genuine. Can she trust it will be the same for her? As
the icy walls around her heart begin to melt, Eleanor must find the courage
to trust her heart or run away from the man who has always owned it.

Being shown what he lost is a wake-up call for McCrea and he isn’t about to
let Eleanor or Sophie walk away. It’s time to prove he’s a man who believes
in love and happy-ever-after.
