Having already lost both of her parents, Lucy loses the one remaining person she can rely on—and, worst of all, she loses her to a darkness she never knew existed, but to which she had always felt drawn.

Fear Has A Name by Creston Mapes – It was more than a break-in. More than a stalking. It was personal. When a stalker targets his family, journalist Jack Crittendon must uncover who the person is and what his motives are—if he is to protect the ones he loves


Ephemeral by Addison Moore – The last thing Laken Stewart remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield.  Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely.

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson – On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.

downloadThe Romanov Legacy by Jenni Wiltz – A family murdered in the dead of night. A treasure lost in the throes of revolution. A 90-year mystery that Lenin, Stalin, and the entire Soviet war chest couldn’t solve. One woman holds the key to it all: the missing fortune of Nicholas II, last czar of Russia.




Lynn’s Modest Musings

InsanityInsanity by Cameron Jace – After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. Only a hookah-smoking professor believes otherwise; that he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll’s paintings, photographs, and find Wonderland’s real whereabouts.

Double Star by Cindy Saunders – When Cepheus, a dark god, forces seventeen-year-old Ally Ashworth off an isolated overlook, she has no idea she’s falling into his world, or that the necklace she’s wearing is actually a key–one with the power to ignite the next world war.


Lillian Holmes and the Leaping Man by Ciar Cullen – At the cusp of the twentieth century, an heiress turned detective enters a world of deception and danger and must learn to trust her nemesis with both her life and her love.

Nimbus by B.J. Keeton and Austin King – Seedy corporations and airship factions, demons and rogues, zealots and thieves… Nimbus is an epic tale of power, greed, and corruption.

12979788Gears of Wonderland by Jason G. Anderson – James Riggs lives a normal life with a mind-numbing job, an overbearing boss, and a demanding fiance. Then he witnesses the murder of his best friend. Saved from the murderer by a strange man in a white suit, James is cast down a hole and into a world he always believed was a kid’s story. Wonderland.
