Ninth Crossing: Discovery
by Kate Gordon
4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Paranormal Romance

Reagan Sullivan is a thoroughly modern woman. She's thirty-one, an honors graduate of Yale, and a six year veteran of the Secret Service, sworn to protect the vice president of the United States--who happens to be a widower. A good looking widower. Despite these accolades--and distractions--Agent Sullivan is a no-nonsense woman in every respect.

Her younger sister, Heather, currently a Rhodes Scholar PhD. candidate and an Olympic rowing medalist, is also a product of the twenty-first century. Together they're an unbeatable combination ... and not bad on the eyes either.

When Reagan meets two Irish elves--one of whom kidnaps her from a ladies bathroom in Oslo, Norway--her world changes dramatically. These elves are nothing like you imagine. Both are well over six feet and strikingly handsome. And both think Reagan is quite fetching herself. And they're not guarding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but they do have a twinkle in their eyes and romance in their hearts. And coursing through Reagan's blood is . . . an Elven ancestry???

If that wasn't enough to ruin a girl's day, when Reagan meets her fifth great grandmother, Eimile, born in Ireland in 1630 ... and she turns out to be the current-day queen of the Western Realm ... and she puts Reagan's life in danger to save the kingdom ... well, things get a little more than airy-faerie. They get downright terrifying!

Despite an outward appearance of tranquility in the Western Realm, not everything is as it appears. A Civil War is brewing, the vice president of the United States is in danger, and Reagan has to come to grips with a discovery that changes her life forever.

Humor and light-hearted romance, yes, but a serious story about corruption, power, deception and the length to which men - and women - will go to achieve their ends. Elf or human.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon
YA Paranormal Romance

Something is killing innocent people around Rylie Gresham's town. The police think it's a wild animal, but she has other suspicions. There are new kids at school, and they have a lot in common with her: gold eyes, super strength, and a habit of turning furry. It seems Rylie's not the only werewolf around anymore.

It's up to Rylie and her werewolf-hunting boyfriend, Seth, to stop the killings. But saving lives doesn't come naturally to a monster, and territory battles could risk the life of her sickly aunt--not to mention her own. Rylie has no choice but to stand her ground, protect her home, and stop the murders before anyone else gets hurt.

LONG NIGHT MOON is a dark fantasy novel for young adult readers who enjoy a splash of horror with their paranormal romance.

by Katie Jennings

Paranormal Romance

Her name was Blythe, and she was Fire.

She fought for what she believed in, and wouldn’t hesitate to unleash the fire in her blood on anyone who threatened those she loved.

But when an alarming truth is revealed regarding the one man she’s both hated and longed for her entire life, she finds herself in an awkward position of both acceptance and denial. But whichever way she looked at it, she was reminded that there was an evil out there gunning for her and her family, and she would stop at nothing to destroy him, even if it meant sacrificing everything she had and everything she was.

Fortunately for her, she had help. But even with the companionship of a skilled and lethal bounty hunter, Blythe couldn’t escape more of the truth, no matter how hard it was to swallow.

Because the evil she’s fighting has a story to tell, and she’d be a damn fool not to listen.

Paranormal Romance

Enter a seductive life of immortality, whirlwind romance, family secrets, and mansion passages...

Seventeen-year-old Breya has been seventeen a long time. Ever since her first love, Ash Donovan, kissed her and dropped dead at her feet, she hasn't aged a day. Her only sign of ailing manifests in the shortness of breath that comes every so many decades, when the instinct to seduce another victim comes knocking.

Only when she meets the mysterious Calecko and is kidnapped into a cult-like family of wealthy comrades who claim to be like her do the secrets of her heritage start to come to light. The part of herself she has been running from is dangerously at home amongst these people, but another part of her still questions and struggles with the moral transgressions of what she is, and what her kind do.

After finally finding a place of belonging in this world, will the right choice prove to be denying herself and the best chance she has of a normal life with these people? Or will her immortal instincts and the allure of affection that does not kill win out over any moral obligations?

It is more than her own affairs that are stirred up, however, upon her instatement into the family. Before she can make any lasting decisions, she is caught up in a web of jealousy, lust, discrimination and treachery that will not soon let her off the hook with so simple a decision, and a love triangle that beats all and demands an even greater sacrifice - one that will rock the world as she knows it to its bones.
