Discovery by Brina Courtney

Discoveries can be dangerous. Discoveries can be deadly.

Nine months ago, Teagan Matthews’ boyfriend disappeared and took her sense of stability with him. But when the opportunity to live with her aging grandmother in Salem arises, she decides it’s time to get on with her life. A new home, new job, and new friends are adding up to a beautiful summer…

…until a young girl’s body shows up one night in town, wearing a pentagram necklace exactly like Teagan’s.

Now a guy looking remarkably like her missing boyfriend has arrived in Salem along with a mysterious stranger who may have some answers that Teagan has desperately been searching for. Teagan must now decide who to trust. It’s a matter of life… and her death.

Masquerade by Cambria Hebert

I’m disfigured. Scarred. Ugly.

When I look in the mirror, I see a stranger. When I look over my shoulder, no one’s there…

Yet I feel watched. Hunted. Afraid.

And then he tells me I’m beautiful.

He tells me I’m safe.

I believe him.

Until someone tries to kill me.

Secrets abound, danger is near, and still… my heart desires a boy with whiskey-colored eyes and far too many secrets.

Secrets that could cost me my life.

To stay alive I have to look deep, beneath the masks everyone wears, to find the truth.

To find myself.

Hear No by Lizzy Ford

It’s only the end of the world at stake …

Nathan’s job for the past three thousand years has been to clean up supernatural messes. Jaded, ruthlessly effective and selfless, he’s seen it all and can handle anything – demons, homicidal angels, even bad bosses.

His latest challenge: A creature named Shadowman is seeking out the three keys it believes will open portals between earth and hell. Nathan must eliminate the human host guiding Shadowman to the keys. Except Nathan isn’t expecting the woman anchoring Shadowman to the human world to be beautiful, witty, innocent and completely unaware of the creature manipulating her. Worse, she makes him feel alive for the first time in his long existence, and he haphazardly discovers she’s meant to become the love of his life.

Life becomes more complicated when Nathan helps rescue one of the key holders, a deaf girl charged with protecting the secret of who Shadowman really is: the first of four demons headed to the human world, intent on bringing about the Apocalypse. They will succeed, unless Nathan kills the woman he loves, and sends the demon back to Hell.

Unknown by Melissa Pearl

A young adult epic fantasy set in a colourful medieval world. Embark on a treacherous journey into the unknown. Unseen (Book 2) and Unleashed (Book 3) also available.


One prophecy…Two seekers…A journey into the UNKNOWN.


Darkness is covering the land. As the city of Mezrah grows with power and greed, the rest of the world can only stand by and wait for their inevitable destruction. The only hope against this growing power is an ancient prophecy that people have stopped believing in.

Then a star begins to fall.

Princess Kyla of Taramon stopped trusting in the power of light the day her father died. Trapped in a city she does not care for, under the watchful glare of her mother, the queen, she struggles to accept her fate.

Then a star begins to fall.

Jethro has loved Kyla for as long as he can remember. Learning that she was to marry his cousin drove a wedge between him and the feisty princess. Watching her from a distance is a torture he is unable to free himself from.

Then a star begins to fall, sparking an ember of hope and sending these two seekers on a treacherous journey into the unknown.

Forged by Greed by Angela Orlowski-Peart

Young Adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel.
Two Seattle 16-year-olds, Jatred and Jasmira, are not your typical star-crossed lovers. They are not even your typical Shape Shifters. Sure, they try to live an ordinary life. At least, as ordinary as the Prince and the Princess of the rivaling ancient Races–the Winter wolves and the Summer leopards–can live. But eventually they learn that not much about their existence can be normal. Especially when the Races’ two commanding Goddesses are involved.

One of the Goddesses is on a quest to tilt the scale of power to her side. The other will never let it happen, even if it means kicking Jatred and Jasmira’s love to the curb. Nothing is off limits, including removing Jatred’s memories of Jasmira.

To complicate things even more, there are the Universe’s powers to consider. They are trapped in an ancient Amulet in order to protect the stability of the world. But the Universe has a mind of its own, and when the powers are unleashed, the forces of nature are disturbed; earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions shake the Earth. All Shifters of both Races are summoned by their respective Goddesses to fight in the name of, or against, the normalcy of the world.

Kiss of Fire by Rebecca Ethington

Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn’t know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn’t want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won’t let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.

The scar is the reason she is being hunted.

If only she knew that she was.

If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now, she is being stalked by a tall blonde man, and is miraculously throwing her high school bully ten feet in the air.

Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar; only he knows what it means, and who will kill her because of it.

  1. I actually wish I drank more lol. … not in the bad way that that sounds. But there are so many tasty sounding drinks! Yet I just. don’t * shrug * It could be because my 21st birthday experience was having 1 drink and then having an allergic reaction that cause one of my eyelids to totally puff out lol.. ya.. great bday pics! haha BUT if I did.. This would totally be on my list! I’m Also totally Downloading Unknown! I mean it’s free. And the girl on the cover looks like she won’t take any crap- and she’ll say something while doing so haha.

  2. I’m not much of a drinker, but I think the Martini sounds good and it’s pretty. 😉 The Candy Corn Hot Chocolate is something I will be making for my kids, They’ll love it.

  3. Both of these drinks sound delicious and the books are all perfect for fall!
