Five years crawled by at a painfully slow pace for young vampire, Beth; each year more agonizing than the next. The powerful unyielding spell which masked Amon’s whereabouts showed no signs of weakening. Influenced by the binding ritual and Amon’s blood surging inside her, Beth will stop at nothing, and risk everything, to find him and turn the tables on Osiris, Isis, and Hathor. In foggy streets of London, lives are threatened by a new breed of hunter, and nothing is what it seemed. Beth once again finds herself surrounded by betrayal. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Philippe and Amon – knowing that her decision will change one life forever. But whose?
 
I was born and raised in Sunny San Diego, California. A creative writing class in junior high sparked my desire to tell stories; however, Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles was my true inspiration to sit down a write a novel. Interview with the Vampire was published in 1976 and has gone on to become one of the best-selling novels of all time.

After reading the chronicles of Vampire Lestat, the driving passion to write my own vampire legend tingled in my fingertips. In 1996, I completed and copyrighted Immortal Kiss. It sat patiently on a shelf for 14 years. In 2010, while packing to move, I stumbled upon it tucked away in my closet. I dusted it off and sat down to read. I fell in love with the story all over again; though, being 14 years old it needed some modernizing. I set forth on the journey of reviving Immortal Kiss. 

In 2013, 3 years later, Immortal Kiss was off to the publishers and agents. In 2014, it found a home with World Castle Publishing, and 1 year later, Immortal Kiss, was hot off the press and available to the public. 

Currently, I am modernizing and reviving its sequel, Bound By Blood, that I completed and copyrighted May 2001.

Other completed works in the queue to modernize and revive are The Vampire Within (2004), A City of Vampires (2007), and The Soul Collector (2010). Future works for creation are The Ten, The Old Ones, and Vampire Amon. 

When I’m not writing, I hang out with my 5 Basset Hounds, Edie, Lucy, Stuart, Morgan, and Dexter. I love pizza and shoes. Can’t live without either.

The Baller’s Secret Baby
by Normandie Alleman
Genre: Sports Romance, Contemporary Romance
 
 
 
He may be a player, but this stud’s not shooting blanks.
NICK
I’m nobody’s baby daddy.
I don’t care how many stunning women throw themselves at me,
looking to turn one hot night into an eighteen-year paycheck.  
I’ve got way too much on the line to throw it away for one night of pleasure.
 
Ball is life, and basketball is my first priority.
I’ve got a championship to win.
But when I see that familiar face shaking her pom-poms on the sidelines,
I’m transported back to childhood, 
Back to the days before a fiery plane crash ripped us apart,
forcing us to grow up overnight. 
Those were the days when Eden Evans stole my heart.
This time, I might be ready to give it right back to her.  
 
EDEN
I have no interest in a man who comes with groupies. 
With a rock legend for a father, I’ve seen the toll fame takes on a marriage. 
The last thing I need is a guy with more Twitter followers than Justin Beiber. 
 
So when Nick Barnes dribbles his way back into my life,
my heart and head go into battle.
I can’t fight my desire for the sexy baller with his eight-pack abs
and panty-dropping charm.
And when that little stick shows an unmistakable plus sign,
suddenly, everything is on the line.  
With a secret baby on the way, will Nick realize that having the home court advantage is what he’s wanted all along? 
 
This is a standalone romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Light on basketball and heavy on steamy romance, this is the first book featuring members of the Barnes family. To celebrate this new release, for a limited time, this edition of The Baller’s Secret Baby also includes the first TWO BOOKS of the Web Master Trilogy as a special free bonus – Her Web Master and Tested by Her Web Master.

First of all, I’m a wife and mother. I’m also a new grandmother. That alone would fulfill any woman’s life. To be honest it does. But…..
I’m also a writer. Someone who loves to tell stories of love, suspense, heartache and of course happily ever after. For most of my life, I’ve written those stories for myself. A type of therapy, I suppose. I love the characters I create. They become part of who I am because there’s part of me in them.
So…. Now that you know this about me. I hope when you read my books, you fall in love with them.
You should also know that I’m a Newfoundlander. What is that you ask? Well we’re a proud people who live on an island, off the east coast of Canada. Some people believe Canada ends with Nova Scotia. It doesn’t. If you keep going east, there is a beautiful island full of amazing people and magnificent scenery. That is where my stories are set because let’s face it. The best stories always come from the places you know and love.

past. But when need outweighs common sense, he hires the would-be country
singer for a short stint of housework at the ranch.

woefully small bank account. What’s a woman to do?
Jack Ward thought his life was on track: he was a detective
in the Houston Police Department and he’d met the woman of his dreams. Then
Fate dealt him two low blows: his woman broke up with him and he was wounded in
a takedown. What’s a man to do.
When Jessie headed to Fort Mavis to claim the restaurant
left to her by an unknown relative, the last person she expects to see is Jack
now working as a sheriff’s deputy. The first time they see each other, shock

she realize sometimes goals have to change…for the better? It takes a near
disaster for them to find the answer to that question.

woman. That all changes when Malibu Barbie comes into the western style bar and
orders a Pina Colada, with extra fruit.  With her California tan and white
shorts she sticks out like a rose among a field of cacti.  He didn’t do
one-night stands, plus he had too much going on in his life to get involved
with a blond-haired bimbo. Causing a scandal was the last thing he needed. He
was so close to achieving his personal goal, and no woman was going to mess it
up.
Jennie Reynolds took this little vacation before she starts her
new job.  Driving a U-Haul cross country was a challenge and she’d never

middle of Fort Mavis, Texas.  She was tired and annoyed, but the guy
sitting next to her met numbers one through five on her, a-guy-must-have list:
Long black hair, stone-gray eyes, tall, lean muscular body, and he was close to
her age. Too bad she couldn’t stick around long enough for numbers six, seven
and eight, great in bed.

You could say that Selene Vanream has a lot of problems. First there’s the Rot that’s slowly killing her, despite everything Ilyse and Micah are doing to find a way to save her. 

Then there’s Andrew, the ghost of her boss who is anchored to the living world. Selene would like to ignore him, but anchored ghosts with unsettled business turn into anchored beasties, so she can’t write him off. The government has sent a team to post up at Affairs of the Dead and keep an eye on her, which includes making sure she plays up to Andrew to keep him from turning. 

On top of that, someone is using Selene’s new power to create anchored ghosts for their loved ones to keep around. Not good since the culprit doesn’t have a clue about that whole anchored beastie angle. Now Selene has a criminal to catch while trying to stay out of the hands of government goons who have stripping her reanimation power on their agenda. 

When Micah and Ilyse finally find a way to save her, Selene thinks she can cross one bad thing off her list–until she learns the terrible price that must be paid to keep her alive. Full plate doesn’t cover it. Overflowing plate doesn’t cover it. Selene’s plate has damn near exploded.

Sometimes death is only the beginning… 

Selene Vanream died—for two minutes. After being revived, she spends over a month in a coma before she awakes, free from the Rot and the reanimation power that caused her so much trouble. No one can explain how Selene survived killing Renton while he possessed her reanimation power, and her reunion with Micah is marred by the choices they each made to save her and stop Renton. 

But even though she’s Rot free, she isn’t problem free. First, she no longer has a job at Affairs of the Dead. And Ethan is missing and she can’t track him down. Not only that, ghosts that were sent to the Afterlife with unfinished business have somehow crossed back and are trying to settle the score in violent ways. If that wasn’t enough, Selene discovers that dying briefly has more consequences than she realized, because when she was revived, not all of her came back. Now she’s straddling both the living world and the dead, and she will find out what it means to come back to life but leave part of her soul behind.

A.J. Locke is originally from Trinidad & Tobago and currently resides in New York City. She knew early on that she wanted to be a writer, penned her first novel at fourteen, and hasn’t stopped since. Creating is her passion, and other than writing she enjoys drawing, painting, graphic design, and any other creative whim that may take her.

The Billionaire Bachelor’s Surprise Baby

The Billionaire Bachelor’s Surprise Baby
by Ella Jade
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Can an unexpected baby and a quirky nanny tame a wild billionaire?
I knocked up a twenty year old waitress but in my defense I thought she was twenty-two. Seriously.
It was a sex-fueled fun three weeks with no strings until she got possessive of my time and my money. No one tells me where to be and when to be there and no one is entitled to my fortune. I broke things off and went about my privileged life. She resurfaces nine months later with a baby she claims is mine.
Can we say paternity test? She drops the kid off on my doorstep and leaves. Now I’m in over my head and have no idea what to do until a hot nanny shows up and all is taken care of. Including me…
Cocky fitness club owner Kyler Barton is having one hell of a ride. His business is booming and his social life couldn’t be better. From society girls to strippers he’s had them all and shows no sign of slowing down. Until… the mistake he thought he was done with nine months ago delivers a surprise package. His life changes in seconds when he’s left to care for a baby he has no idea what to do with.
Jenna Cranford can’t seem to find herself. At twenty-five she has no ambition to pursue a real career. When she shows up on Kyler’s doorstep hoping he’ll donate to a charity gala she’s organizing he mistakes her for his new nanny. Jenna adores kids so she gladly steps in. But for how long?

Kyler is overwhelmed with the responsibility of being an instant father. Can Jenna help him become the man he needs to be for his son? There’s an immediate attraction between the two. But when Jenna’s insecurities seep through and Kyler’s ex comes back for their baby, demanding they become a family, things get a whole lot more complicated.

Ella Jade has been writing for as long as she can remember. As a child, she often had a notebook and pen with her, and now as an adult, the laptop is never far. The plots and dialogue have always played out in her head, but she never knew what to do with them. That all changed when she discovered the eBook industry. She started penning novels at a rapid pace and now she can’t be stopped.
Ella resides in New Jersey with her husband and two boys. When she’s not chasing after her kids, she’s busy creating sexy, domineering men and the strong women who know how to challenge them in and out of the bedroom.  She hopes you’ll get lost in her words.
She loves connecting with readers.

What inspires me to write? I’m not really sure there’s one specific inspiration. I’ve always been a storyteller. Characters and dialogue constantly play out in my head. I’ve developed whole books around one or two sentences of conversation. The chatter in my head keeps me motivated and I just follow the flow of the tale. 
 
I take my computer with me most places, but when that’s not convenient I have a notebook in my bag. You never know when that inspiration will strike. It can be an inopportune little bugger. The shower is a big creative outlet for me. If I’m stuck in a scene I find the hot stream of the water helps me figure it all out. Another inspiring time happens to be right before I drift off to sleep. Some of my best plots come when my eyes are fluttering, trying to fight slumber. Luckily I have a good memory and can work it out the next morning. But there have been a few times when I’ve had to get up in the middle of the night and jot some notes down.
 
My creativity inspires me too. I like to see how far I can stretch my imagination and how deep I can go with the emotions of my characters. My favorite part of the writing process is opening that blank document for the first time. There are so many possibilities. Creating relationships, conflicts and back stories drive me to write. But no matter what I put those people through I know they’ll always have their happily ever after because I control the outcome. That’s the best part of my job.
