4.3 out of 5 stars Amazon
Paranormal Romance

When an earthquake hits her hometown, teenage Livvy thinks this is her chance to make her dull life exciting and indulge her special skill of reading others' emotions. Amid the disaster, she is threatened by looters and fights back with a newfound quickness and strength. Livvy is aided by the arrival of Jake, a gorgeous boy who has an otherworldly ability to bend others to his will.

Jake sweeps Livvy into the world of the Empaths, paranormals who have everything she has ever wanted. She learns she shares their power of feeding on other's emotions; happiness energises them, fear makes them fast, anger makes them strong and lust makes them hypnotically charming.

When Livvy meets the Empaths' opposite, one with the ability to stop their powers from functioning, she is caught up in a supernatural battle. Livvy soon realises that judging on first appearances is a mistake and one that could cost her life.

A bite sized paranormal romance for young adults, Emotionally Charged is a novella of 26,000 words, or 120 pages, about a third the length of a normal novel.

Book 1 of the Destroyers Series (Second Edition)

Sixteen-year-old Janelle never thought the gray spiral birthmark on her arm meant anything special. That is, until she meets Gary, a boy her age with a birthmark exactly like hers. Gary’s attractive, brooding, and perfectly normal…except for the fact that he materialized out of a dangerous hurricane right in front of her. Janelle’s certain of only one thing. Gary’s mark—and hers, too—mean something, but he’s reluctant to tell her what.

At last she squeezes the truth from Gary about their markings. And the truth is utterly terrifying: Janelle and Gary are more connected to the destructive power of nature than she ever dreamed possible. And learning the truth about herself is only the start of her nightmare.

Snow, Blood, and Envy
by Jenn Haus
4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon
YA Paranormal Romance

With aspirations of being an animator, sixteen-year-old Nivi Nash thought she knew all about fairy tales. Take one beautiful damsel in distress, add a charming hero, and don’t forget a cackling villain. Throw in some pretty colors, a few songs, and mix well.

But caught in a real one, she learns the hero—though still hot—isn’t always charming, the story far from pretty, and the villain absolute evil. On the run for her life in a stolen SUV, she isn’t worried about her beauty, but happily ever after? Yes, she wants that the most. It means she’ll live.

The kiss always at the end of these tales?

Most of the time, okay maybe half of the time, the thought of that lip lock is far, far away where these stories are supposed to be. But tied to a stake on the side of a snowy mountain, the thought of her not-so-charming hero’s kiss burns away the reality of the knife hovering above her skin.

Twisted Vengeance (Rick Burns, Twisted Series)
by Jeff Bennington
4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Supernatural Mystery

In Bennington's [Twisted Vengeance, 2011] latest supernatural thriller, Detective Rick Burns has spent a lot of years on the Indianapolis police force, but he's never seen anything like this. When a man is found gruesomely murdered in his own home, it's just another case in a two-year streak of unsolved homicides afflicting the Indiana capital. One more case, one more headache for the troubled detective. Without any clues, leads or anything to link the cases together--except for the particularly brutal ways they were carried out--it's getting to be more than Rick can handle.

Propping him up are his father--a retired cop moonlighting as the station's janitor--and Rick's plucky sister-in-law, Stella. Together, they form a pretty good support group, or so they think. What they don't realize is that they're half of Rick's problem: Rick promised his late older brother, Roger, that he wouldn't let Stella remarry a cop; that's getting to be a problem, seeing as Rick is falling in love with her. And while it's nice to have Pops nearby for help when the going gets tough, Rick's dad is just as likely to remind him that his brother was a better detective.

Pops has a point; Rick is often willing to let good police work and common sense take a backseat for the sake of dramatic plot twists. Although that unprofessionalism makes it hard to strictly classify the book as a gumshoe novel, it doesn't make it any less compelling as a mystery--thanks, in particular, to the appearance (and subsequent disappearance) of a young boy. Rick spots the pale, sickly youth at the scene of the latest crime. Driven by the desperation of only having one lead, Rick decides to follow it, no matter where. Bennington's simple yet forceful style will keep readers guessing as the investigation takes Rick from the clean streets of Circle City to the darkest corners of the human heart. The truth leads Rick to places he never would have expected--and to questions he might not want answered. A brutal, emotional thriller that earns its stripes.
