Featuring Last Winter Red by Jennifer M. Eaton
Sacrificial Oath by Terri Rochenski
An impetuous act unwittingly makes Alesuela the fulfillment of the Sovereign’s Blood
Oath to their Goddess. In five days, she’ll be forced to make the greatest
choice of her life: become the virginal sacrifice already promised, or
force the man she loves most to die in her place.
With an impossible choice in front of her, she searches for ways to undo the oath,
and in her quest, finds not everything in her life is as she expects.
The Amulet of Ormisez by J. Keller Ford
There is only one way to save Elton Fletcher’s brother from an insanity-ridden
death. After years away from home, fighting for his people, Elton returns
to discover his only sibling, Cayden, possessed by greed and malice, and
responsible for malicious, unthinkable deeds. Cayden, though, isn’t the
only one afflicted by the Amulet of Ormisez, and Elton finds himself in yet
another battle, where the price of failure could be his own life.
Birthright by Lynda R. Young
Christa can mask the pain and hide the scars, but running from a birthright is
impossible. She’s tried to escape her grief by fleeing to a small town in Florida. Much to her frustration, the locals think they recognize
her even though she's never been there before. To make things worse, a man named Jack spouts outrageous theories about her.
Both spur Christa to bolt, to start fresh yet again, but there’s
something about Jack that intrigues her enough to stay. The only problem? Someone else
wants her to leave, and they won’t stop until she’s dead.
Petrified by Kelly Said
A mysterious storm has replaced summer with winter, devastating crops and smothering Castle
lands in snow. Prince Sterling August stands alone as a leader, lost
in personal grief as well as a desire to help his people but with an
inability to do either.
The answers he needs await him, but without Lochlyn, a woman who’s just as isolated as Sterling, he’ll never
see what stands before him, cloaked in illusion.

she knows, survives a man with whom she can be properly paired.
The Outside, though, holds secrets the government struggles to keep, and what
Emily discovers on her quest for a mate will change her life forever.
