Cadence
Deception #2
by
Ker Dukey & D.H. Sidebottom

Release Date: December 5th, 2014






Cadence

Cade.

He had her love. Her devotion. He destroyed her with it!

Years I loved Faye Avery from a distance, watched my brother have something he didn’t deserve. She was always too good for him. Dante had a need for control and that grew with him from childhood, infecting her to bend to his whim.
When Dante abandoned her, the girl who put his future and needs before her own, I rediscovered the girl who lost herself to the heartache. She blossomed and flourished in the light of the love she deserved - until he robbed me of her. Breaking her down, dimming the essence of the woman she had become.
Dante had a darkness inside him that led him down a path of depravity. He was too far gone. He functioned on corruption, humiliation, power and retribution, and all for something that never happened.
What he forgets is this! I not only wear his face, I carry the darkness inside of me too, and my wrath will coat him with it so thick he will drown under the rain of my reckoning.
He wants Star, a memory of a girl he used to know. He stole Faye, a woman who owns my heart and is the cadence in mine.
I will find him.
I will take her from him.
And then I will kill him.

Out of Sync
Out of Sync #1
by
A. Bin Juran

Release Date: October 23rd, 2014

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult






I'm a magical misfit
I won't let it define me
A bolt-zapping disaster magnet
But at least I'm still trying
The guy I like asked me out
I hoped my luck was changing
Then my coven trials began
...they're harder than I expected
Now my life hangs in the balance
I don' know what I'm doing
But I do know this:
I'm not going down without a fight.

Out of Sync is a YA paranormal romance about a magical misfit who faces her perilous coven trials, falls in love and nearly dies more times than seems polite to mention.












Random facts about the characters of Out of Sync




  • Bree Flint's hands have a tendency to spark electricity when she’s nervous or agitated.

  • Bree's first brush with magic came at the age of eight, when she accidentally turned her teacher into a toad. Her grandmother, Miranda, has promised the school board that such incidents won’t happen again.

  • We've received word that Bree Flint has been dubbed 'the girl most likely to end up in a black hole of her own making.' Monroe School does not condone the use of such language, though we couldn't in good conscience ask you to sit next to her during Spells class.

  • Annabelle Foster, the "makeover specialist," can work wonders with hair and make-up charms. References and testimonials can be found on her site, as well as 'before' and 'after' pictures.

  • Charlie Cast's esoteric theories regarding the walking of dogs do not, as rumored, require canine participation.

  • Sophia Lucas's eye color fluctuates according to her mood. We apologize, but this feature isn't available in potion or spell form, she was just born that way. And no, her gorgeous golden hair did not come from a bottle either, we asked.

  • Reactions to Nate Harper include (but are not limited to) shortness of breath, fluctuation in heartbeat, a sudden (though fleeting) weakness in the knees, and, in one unfortunate case, foot-in-mouth syndrome. Yes, he's handsome; get over it.

  • Lee, the vampire, is an unabashed flirt. He's not above using his dancing abilities to recruit donors.





When I opened my eyes, I noticed that I had been perched upright in a hallway across from one of the purification pods. A disembodied voice congratulated me on completing my second trial, somehow aware that I had regained consciousness.

My throat went dry as my eyes searched for cameras, paranoia surging throughout my system. These people were crazy; there was no other explanation for what I had just been through.

I swerved away from the pods; sure, it would be nice to be clean, but that's how they got you — with the pristine, warm showers and scented soap. Before you knew what was going on, they would try to kill you again. In the back of my mind I wondered why they needed to clean you in between the attempts on your life, but I wasn't about to try to understand their crazy.

I just wanted out.
Once I found my way out into the open air, I saw the hooded figures had reconvened.

One of them was speaking, and I could hear him clearly, as if he was standing right beside me, drowning out my thoughts. "Your next testing phase will commence within the next few days."

A chill passed through me.

I steeled myself. No. Nope. Not gonna happen, buddy, I decided.
"The third trial is set by the coven which has shown interest in you, based on your scores, rank and lineage. If you pass, the elemental trials will follow throughout the next few months, according to the full moon..."

My ears buzzed as the announcer's voice began chanting from inside my skull. My body was still shaking off the numbness in my muscles and the contrasting heat in my limbs.

I had to find a way out of here. The cold air was biting, sinking into my skin, clawing at me from beneath my clothes.

The announcer's voice joined the crowd in chant, and the magic began to swell around me.





When not immersed in books - be it writing or reading them - Ainat can usually be found nestling a cup of coffee in the company of her husband and twins. A former fast-food employee, T-shirt seller, and glorified secretary, Ainat eventually found herself with Bachelor's and LL.M. degrees and working as a lawyer. A few years later, listening to a catchy pop song about dream fulfillment, Ainat decided to buy a clunky little laptop and get to work. Ten novels and a much better laptop later, she came to the realization that hitting the double-digit mark meant it was time to publish and start consuming coffee (though not necessarily in that order).

When she isn't writing, editing, or mothering, Ainat enjoys reading promiscuously (which, to her, means she's reading several novels at a time while committing to none), watching political dramas and sci-fi series, and taking embarrassing memos-to-self complete with accents and dramatic pauses that should never be unleashed, ever.

Ashley Smith spent her life being shipped from one family member to the next. When Ashley's estranged father dies, she finally has the money to go to college and the chance to find a place where she belongs.
Within days, Ashley has found the one thing she's always longed for – a family. She may have even found love. Theres only one problem. Ashley likes Colin... a lot, but so does Randi, and everyone likes Randi. Randi's approval is the single easiest way to belong. Falling in love with Randi's crush is the single easiest way to find oneself on the outside for the next three years.

When Ashley arrived at college, she never dreamed she’d find this kind of happiness. Will she allow herself to hold on to this happiness, and Colin, or will her fear of losing her friends, the only friends she’s ever known, dictate her actions?












After lunch, Colin finally decided he was tired and went to his room to take a nap. I tried to get some sleep too, but found I wasn't able to. Instead, I laid around my room, reading, and enjoying the quiet.

Around seven that evening, Colin came to my room to see what I was doing and if I wanted dinner.

!I'm not really hungry. I'm actually still full from lunch."

"Okay. I think I'm going to heat up some of our leftovers from yesterday and then watch a movie. You in?"

The events of the past two days were beginning to catch up with me, and I was starting to feel a little loopy from lack of sleep. Laying down in front of a television to watch a movie did not sound like a bad idea at all.

"I'm definitely in. I'm just going to get changed real quick. I'm freezing."

Our dorm seemed to get progressively colder as the weekend wore on. I wasn't sure if there was a problem, or the school was just trying to save money while most of the students were away, but it was starting to get really cold.

I put on my warmest, comfiest sweats, grabbed my comforter and headed to the lounge to meet Colin.

"What are we watching?" I asked when I got there. He was sitting at a table eating what looked like turkey and mashed potato sandwiches on the dinner rolls I made.

"I haven't quite figured that out yet. Any suggestions?"

I walked over to the cabinet that housed the dorm's meager collection of movies. "I probably haven't seen any of them, so it's really up to you."

Colin put his sandwich down and walked to where I was standing.

"What are you in the mood for — funny or scary?"

I looked up at him. "Never scary."

He laughed. "Funny it is." He plucked a movie from the shelf and put it in the DVD player.

I sat on the sofa, waiting for Colin as he finished his meal and cleaned up. He turned off the lights in the room before coming over to sit beside me.

"Good call with the comforter. It's freezing," he said as he sat down.

"Here." I offered him part of the blanket. "We can share."

He moved closer on the sofa, covering his legs, and we settled in to watch the movie.

I'm not actually sure how or when it happened, but sometime during the movie, Colin and I shifted. No longer were we sitting next to each other with space between us. Instead, we were wrapped together in my comforter, my head on his chest and his arms around me, tucked into his side.

I didn't want to move. I was afraid even to breathe, fearing if I moved at all, he'd move and somehow I wouldn't be here anymore with his arms wrapped around me.

I had planned on going to bed early that night, but not quite like this. Before I knew it, I felt myself dozing off in Colin's arms. I was so warm and comfortable, and as I was nodding off, it registered in my brain where I was, and I thought there really was nothing better than falling asleep in Colin's arms.

And I realized, just a short time later, that I was wrong. There was one thing better than falling asleep in Colin's arms and that was waking up in them.

"Ashley."

I heard a voice gently say my name, and when I opened my eyes, they were looking directly into Colin's.

I blinked up at him, still unwilling to move.

"It's getting late, Ash. Let's get you to bed." He gently unwrapped his arms from around me and helped me up. I was still in a fog.

Colin took my hand and walked me to my room. When we got to the door, I turned to look at him. He had such a tender look in his eyes that it left me speechless. He reached up and brushed my hair, which had become unruly, away from my face. Then, he leaned down and kissed my forehead and said quietly, "Good night."

His gentleness took me by surprise — so much so that I just stood there, watching his retreating body as he walked back toward the lounge.

That night, I slept fitfully. Even though I'd been dozing comfortably in Colin's arms, out of them, I was restless. When I did sleep, he was in my thoughts. He invaded more than one of my dreams that night.
