The Pocket Watch (The Trinity Saga, Book 1)
by Ronnell Porter
3.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Paranormal Romance

Imogen Stromholdt lives a very uninteresting and sluggish life; her days are about as fast as a snail riding a turnip. She so longs to have fun adventures of her own filled with daring plots and danger, but those dreams are as far away as a dream could be.

But her life quickly becomes filled with real danger when she meets a very suave and charming young man named Lucius Knight. Well, that, and the tiny vicious little monsters called Sea-Merrows that tried to drown her, a slightly egocentric Irish youth who can manipulate fire, and blood-thirsty vampires tracking her across the country. Not to mention the indestructible beings called Hollows that want to kidnap her by the orders of their undead master, Byron Barrowite. Other than that, she has nothing to worry about.

Imogen’s life just became a lot more interesting, and if she can just survive the giant dragon made of pure fire, she may learn just how much she enjoys getting into trouble. Her greatest weapon is her freedom of choice in this charming and darkly romantic tale of magic, murder, and destiny.

The Fate of Destiny (Fates #1)
by Danielle Bourdon
5 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Paranormal Romance

Up until three days before her eighteenth birthday, Farris Landry's life fit neatly into three categories: consuming, troublesome and downright tricky.

Consuming because of the unnatural passion (obsession) she had for writing 'stories'.

Troublesome for the mother who descended into the realm of the insane right before her eyes.

Tricky when she found herself on her own, forced to carve out an existence by the skin of her teeth.

Farris quickly discovers that consuming-troubling-tricky is nothing compared to the Chaos that ensues after a visit to her grandmother. Determined to go on with her life, Farris finds out the hard way that sometimes, Fate has other ideas. In the blink of an eye, her life gets turned upside down: a tornado rips through town, her loft catches fire, and an explosion decimates her workplace.

A stranger, Emerson Ferrera, inserts himself into the violence, becoming guardian and protector. Farris begins to suspect her grandmother's warning of impending death might more serious than she thought.

Tragedy and betrayal follow, throwing Farris into a tailspin. Will she be able to trust the stranger she's become close to, or will his deception tear them apart?

Find out if Farris' writing obsession is just a unique gift or a clue to a talent with a more supernatural twist in The Fate of Destiny, book #1 in the Fates series.

Dark Contemporary Fantasy

Dr. Hattie Sterling has dedicated her career to the study of bleedover, a new phenomenon in which parts of fictional worlds cross over into the real one. So far, bleedover's effects--vandalized billboards, extra scenes in movies, unpublished copy in texts--have been so small and so random many consider the whole thing a hoax.

Everything changes when grad students Ernest Packer and Masumi Yoshida conjure an apple out of thin air. Bleedover is real--and it can be controlled.

Sterling believes she can harness fantastical worlds to make ours a better place. But her college rival Corbin Lyell has other ideas. Obsessed with the pulp horrors of Lovecraft and Howard, he kidnaps Packer and quickly summons cosmic monsters into Riodola University. To fight back, Sterling must conjure up myths and heroes of her own before Corbin overruns the world with the worst horrors of the imagination.
