Finding your soul mate is a dream Adeline Hamilton thought was just that … a dream. After several failed relationships, she realizes she’s not capable of falling in love. The only passion she’s ever had is teaching U.S. History at the local high school.
A week before Christmas, Adeline is all set for her best friend’s wedding, even though she dreads having to go to it alone. But when she’s given a Christmas wish that could change her future forever, she’s whisked away to the past, to a completely different place and time.

As their relationship grows, Adeline realizes that true love does exist. What she doesn’t know is that her wish can’t last forever, that soon she’ll have to leave the past behind.

It Must’ve Been the Mistletoe
Sea of Strangers
(The Ryogan Chronicles #2)
By Erica Cameron
Publication Date: December 5, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Know your enemy if you want to survive…
The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal.
Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow.

Every author has an agenda when they’re creating a book. Sometimes it’s as deceptively simple as “tell an entertaining story,” and sometimes it’s as gruelingly complex as “expose a dangerously vile aspect of modern society,” but it’s still an agenda. Often, there isn’t just one, and some authors have agendas or messages they thread through every book they write, even if they’re unconnected to each other.
For me, that thread is asexuality.
I grew up knowing I saw the world differently than everyone else, but not really understanding how deep that went. How could I understand that when I had no reflections of myself to help me? The first time I ever heard the term asexual was in biology class, and that was only in relation to the reproduction of amoebas. No one ever introduced me to asexuality as an orientation, and nothing I read or watched hinted at the possibility, either. I was raised in a liberal community, and I knew growing up that it was okay to want a relationship with anyone of any gender. There was never anyone who said it was okay to want no one. The lack left me stumbling through life trying to figure myself out by trial and error. It left me floundering in relationships because I couldn’t understand my own lack of desire.
Asexuality is categorized by a lack of sexual attraction to other people regardless of gender, aesthetics, personality, or other characteristics. Like all other orientations, asexuality isn’t defined by the type or frequency of sex someone has but by their physical, sexual, and psychological attraction to another person. Someone who is asexual does not feel sexual attraction to anyone no matter what. Gray-asexuals very rarely do. Demisexuals may feel attraction to some people, but only after they form an emotional bond or attachment. It’s more complex than that, of course, but those are the basics. I go into more detail in the Queership column Coming Up Aces as well as in several essays posted on my blog.
Proper representation can help the next generation avoid the uncertainty, confusion, and self-recrimination that I went through. This is why I put at least one asexual-spectrum character in each of my series and make a point of declaring their orientation on the page. If readers encounter the term and meet characters who fall somewhere on the spectrum, they’ll bring that awareness with them into their lives. Maybe it will resonate with them. Maybe the characters will remind them of a friend of theirs or a sibling. Maybe their basic understanding of asexuality won’t come into play at all until they meet someone later in their lives. Whatever the case, it is my hope that representation in fiction will cause a ripple effect that spreads a lot farther than the world of books, and that is why there is definitely one message you’ll find in all of my books:
I am asexual, and we exist.

(A Collapse Story)
Publication date: December 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Post-Apocalyptic, Romance, Thriller
I swore to protect her before I even knew her.
Now, it’s the creed I live by.
Uriah True is a dangerous man. His past is cloaked in secrecy, and he writes his future in the blood of the people he kills. After the Great Global War, he leaves the militias behind to prey on the scum that remain loyal to the cruel and tyrannical regime of the defeated enemy Omega in this dangerous and new post-apocalyptic world.
Some call him The Hunter. Some call him Death.
He calls it vengeance for what the war took from him.
Hunt, kill, repeat.
When he uncovers a plot that could bring death to the only person he’s ever loved, he’ll do anything to stop it.
The only problem? He may already be too late.
A thrilling novel from #1 bestselling author Summer Lane, creator of the smash-hit Collapse Series, Zero Trilogy, Bravo Saga, Unbreakable Seal, and the historical romantic thriller, Running with Wolves. Vigilante is a novel that stands alone, and is set within the Collapse Universe.
Summer Lane is the #1 bestselling author of 19 hit books, including the Collapse Series and hotly anticipated Resurrection Series. She owns Writing Belle Publishing and Writing Belle Magazine. She is also an experienced journalist and creative writing instructor. Summer lives in California with her husband, Scott, and their German Shepherd, Kona.
Interview with Summer Lane, author of the new thriller Vigilante
Why did you decide to write a story about Uriah True?
Vigilante was something that I was writing for fun, off the clock, so to speak. I’d been writing the book on my laptop on weeknights, snuggled under blankets in bed, with no intention of showing the story to anyone. I was more than halfway done with writing the first draft of the novel when I realized that a lot of people would probably enjoy reading the story. Uriah True has been consistently voted the fan favorite every time I take a survey or a poll. I thought, Why not? I told myself if the book happened to be done by November, I’d release it around Christmas. Uriah is my favorite character from the Collapse universe, so I was tickled to write this tale. He has such organic depth and character development.
How does Vigilante tie into both the Collapse Series and the upcoming Resurrection Series in January 2018?
Uriah True’s story hangs between the timelines of the two series – there is about a one-year gap between the storylines. Uriah’s novel fills in the blanks, plus it gives you some insight into his backstory that he never shared with Cassidy Hart. The nice thing about the book, too, is that it stands alone as its own adventure story. You can read it and know nothing about Collapse and still follow the story. It’s a straightforward thriller.
What is your writing method?
It depends on what I’m doing. If I’m writing something for work, my method is to set a deadline and break up my overall goal into smaller, attainable, day-by-day steps. If I’m writing something for fun, then I write after work or on weekends and write whatever comes into my brain. Of course, writing is always “for fun,” but I define the difference between work and fun as those books which have an impending publication due date and those that do not.
It’s almost Christmas! What is your favorite holiday tradition/pastime?
I love watching old Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music. Unlike a lot of people, I actually love going shopping during the holidays. I feel like a kid again, listening to the music, smelling the trees for sale in the parking lots, and slowly acquiring gifts for everyone I love. Gift-giving is so much fun. Perhaps that’s my favorite tradition.
When is your next release?
January 2018. Resurrection: Shadows of Omega will be releasing on the 26th. It will be my twentieth novel, and I plan on celebrating in a big way. J
Queen of Corona
I bet you thought I was going to fold. That I wouldn’t be able to resist that fine china-white powder resting right there in the sanctuary of my pocketbook.
But it stays tucked away the entire night, I swear. I ride my bike to the river to get some air. I sit down on the concrete bank and look out at the wilderness just across the water. At the narrow beaches spotted with bushes, fluo-green against the fading sky of late summer.
Here the riverside is wild, untempered. The bars along the water light up, the music gets louder. I go to the bar. As I’m standing in the endless line I can feel someone’s eyes on me. I count to five in my mind and I look up. Oh man, I think, here we go again. And I let myself fall into it one more time because I need anything to get myself out of this emotional hole I dug for myself.
At first, I’m confused. Because the face that is looking back at me is a face I know so well. A face so familiar and unfamiliar. A face I’d seen dozens of times, but not a face I’d ever called a friend. I stared at him as I tried to place him. He smiles back at me amused. The cogs in my mind begin to click. An actor. I know his face from the movies. That series on Netflix about the homicide detective addicted to porn.
I’m not drunk enough to get up the balls to sidle up to him all sassy and shit. But I don’t need to because he comes up to me. He looks me up and down and nods like he’s approving a shipment of the latest iPhone.
“Mind if I sit down?” he says in that Hollywood voice.
“Yes. I mean no. Why not.”
He says he’s here filming an episode where he’s chasing some jewel thief around Eastern Europe. He can’t believe I’ve never heard of his show. He doesn’t waste any time pouring me doubles out of the bottle the waitress brings over. He asks me if I want to dance and I follow him out to the dance floor. He’s a terrible dancer. He’s basically grinding against my pelvis and slobbering on me. Then he’s trying to get into my panties under my dress like we’re not out in the open and all these people aren’t looking at us. At some point, he grabs my hand and leads me towards the car he’s got waiting for him. I’m not good with cars, so I can’t say what kind of car it is, just that it’s shiny and black. The driver drops us off at one of the big hotels where he’s got a suite. He opens the door like he’s a sheik opening the palace gates. As if a hotel room that looks like millions of other hotel rooms around the world is going to make me go woozy with passion.
Pretty soon he gets back to his sloppy kissing. He’s got my dress off and he says he wants to fuck me like Charles Bukowski and I don’t know who he’s talking about.
I’m probably only fucking him because he’s famous, not because I really like him. What’s there to like in an arrogant middle-aged man with a paunch and a lazy eye? And what’s in it for him, fucking a girl young enough to be his daughter.
“Can I take a picture of you?”
I shrug and he takes it as a yes. He asks me to stop covering my breasts and to spread my legs. I feel horribly shy but it’s exciting at the same time to think this famous dude is going to be looking at my pictures later and reminiscing about our time together. But what if he posts them online? I should have said no. Julita tells me I’ve got a real problem saying no. I’m too much of a yes girl. A goddang people pleaser and where’s that been getting me? Not very far, eh? says the reasonable voice in my head. The other voice, the one that just wants me to take it easy and go with the flow, tells me that it’s fine. It’s just two consenting adults having a good time. Isn’t it?
We end up trusting celebrities almost implicitly, as if their fame is guarantee that they’re harmless. We trust them to tell us what’s fashionable and what’s not, how to eat and how to vote. And sometimes we let them fuck us just because they’re famous. And sometimes we let them get away with the worst.
He goes to take a shower and I walk around the room and look at the stuff lying around his room. There’s his passport on the table. I open it up and look at the picture, which looks nothing like him, he must’ve aged a lot in the past few years. I look at the birthdate and do the math. It turns out he’s 52, not 45 like he told me last night. I pick up my stuff and go straight out the door. I feel sick, not the throwing up kind, just the sick dismay of disappointment. Sick at how they think it’s okay to treat you like an empty shell of a person and then got the nerve to lie to you. I think this might be my breaking point. At last, you say.
I’m sobbing into my sleeve as I walk through the lobby and my mascara’s running all over the fucking place, so I sit down for a minute. In a flash, hotel security is coming my way and they’re asking me to leave and if I didn’t feel like a whore before then I definitely do now.

Love is a curse.
Three hundred years ago, Warin lost his humanity.
The night he met Thea was the night he lost his soul.
For more than two hundred years, Warin has roamed the wilds with only his blood brother Aleric for company, terrorizing villages and feeding on human life. Sating his dark hunger was all he ever cared for…
Until she crossed his path.
From the moment he meets his beautiful Thea, her emerald eyes and tender heart call to him like a siren’s song. But she is human, and unless Warin can uncover the truth of their connection, he’ll never be able to possess her the way he so desperately desires.
Enlisting the help of the Ancients of his kind always comes with a cost. Especially when Thea is revealed for what she really is: either a gift from the gods…
…or a curse on his bloodline.

Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release: December 14, 2017
Model: RJ Ritchie
He’s wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry.
Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry.
He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed.
She’s wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying.
Nothing ever goes right for Lark.
Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate.
That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out. They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman’s old one.
That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger.
It’s been two years since she’s felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly. We’re talking full-on, hysterical breakdown as he loads her car onto his tow truck while looking at her like she’s lost it.
Maybe being crazy isn’t all that bad.
The next thing she knows, she’s spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn’t be better—even though she still doesn’t have a car.
She thinks she’s in the clear, that she’s got it all figured out… well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again.
Now the ball is in her sexy stranger’s court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over.
Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.
