Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic (Dowser Series Book 1) [Kindle Edition]

Meghan Ciana Doidge

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

Blood of Rome: Caratacus (The Blood of Rome Chronicles Book 1) [Kindle Edition]

John Salter

AD 43, the misty and mysterious island of Britannia lies across the channel from Gaul, standing alone as the legions of the Roman Empire gather and turn their attention to her shores under the leadership of the Emperor Claudius. Most tribes capitulate immediately and choose to surrender unwilling to go to war, some side with the invader and fight against their fellow Britons but one stands resolute and ready to defy Claudius, the Catuvellauni.

Led by Caratacus, his tribe choose to resist the largest Empire the known world has ever seen, against overwhelming odds and superior military might, fighting for his entire way of life and the very existence of his people. Caratacus is determined to take the fight to Rome in a way never witnessed before and more successfully than those who have opposed its legions as they attempt to crush all those who stand against them.

Blood of Rome: Caratacus is the first chapter of the Blood of Rome series based on historical fact. It tells the story of a genuine warrior’s struggle and that of his people as they begin one of the longest wars of resistance against Rome and its legions.

Blood of Rome Retribution [Kindle Edition]

John Salter

Three years have passed since the Claudian invasion of Britannia in AD 43. Caratacus has been forced to retreat to the west, where he now leads the free tribes against the Roman occupation of their land. From his mountain stronghold, he launches devastating attacks upon the legions, seeking retribution for the death of his brother and thousands of Britons. The war has just begun, but it’s not a war that Rome is used to fighting as Caratacus’ warriors strike and then vanish into the hills and mist.

The Roman war machine has been halted in it’s tracks and now struggles to come to terms with the tactics used by an enemy employing the guile and cunning of a wolf, and the ferocity of a wounded bear, an enemy they believed should have been brushed aside already. As the conflict continues and battles rage, a fight to the death ensues, a fight between a warrior’s honour and an empire’s strength, both determined upon victory.

What are these shrieks in the night in the small, historic Texas Gulf Coast town of Anahuac, and what is the Ghost-killer? Worse yet, why is the last person to hear the shriek dead, his body now as devoid of moisture as a 3,000 year-old mummy? Sometimes doing a favor for a friend and client can wind Bill Travis hip-deep in trouble, and this time is no exception. To get to the heart of the matter, Bill must take his wife and his dog along for the trip and make contact with Wolf Dillard, a self-styled Sasquatch hunter who has a story to tell that is beyond belief.

This edition also contains the short story “The Woodsman” at the end.

Eternally Yours (The Afterlife Series Book 1) [Kindle Edition]

Gina Ardito

Jodie Devlin’s suicide is not the end, merely the beginning. With her future as a living human being irrevocably destroyed, she must become an employee of the Afterlife until a new existence can be created for her. In the realm on the other side of death, she’ll learn how to retrieve ghosts who have lingered too long on Earth. If only she didn’t have to work beside a good-looking, arrogant man who baffles and challenges her at every turn.

It’s no wonder Luc Asante is so bitter toward women. His former wife ordered him taken off life support, condemning him to service in the Afterlife as one of Death’s bounty hunters. Now he has a trainee—a female trainee who’s as soft-hearted as he is hard, as impulsive as he is methodical. In a place where perfection is the norm, she revels in her imperfections just to drive him nuts.

Traveling through time and space to bring peace to lost souls, Jodie and Luc will be forced to come to terms with their differences and their pasts, to discover a love that might bind them for eternity.

As dawn breaks, the pale body of a beautiful, raven-haired young woman is discovered in an errant swan boat, adrift on a small lake smack in the middle of a jewel-like park in Downtown Orlando. It looks like a suicide: Snow White in a fractured fairytale. Body language expert, Julie O’Hara, isn’t buying it. And that’s a BIG problem, since Julie is the one person most likely to figure it out.
