SYNOPSIS
I never meant to fall for a prince… now nothing can be the same again.
It wasn’t meant to be this way… My life with my daughter was safe and protected; perfectly controlled.
Then he came and smashed everything I knew, everything I thought I knew, into pieces.
He broke my heart with his lies and deception, but now he’s under my skin and I can’t go back to the life I once had. All roads lead to him, the king of my heart, the man I would change everything for.
But with royalty comes obligation and expectation. Everyone wants a piece of him.
Inside the palace walls, he swears to keep us safe, yet I know the promise isn’t his to make.
Can he be the person his country needs while also loving us? Can I be the woman who stands proud by his side, or will I always be the daughter of a drug addict who has no place in the higher realms of society?
He says we can make it work, that we can fight tradition and give his people something new.
I wonder what price we will pay to be free to live our dream.
A heart-stopping Rags to Riches tale.

Marc Sanderson’s love of stories grew up alongside his love of science and history. Unable to decide which was most fascinating, he studied science, literature, history, education and law, all of which pop up in his writing. Currently a full-time writer of romance and fantasy, he loves finding ways to infuse his passion for learning and the natural world into his stories. When he’s not reading or writing, he can be found studying the ecology of the local streams, restoring the eelgrass beds of the local estuary, hiking up mountains, watching documentaries or indulging in romantic comedies. Lately he’s taken up cooking as a hobby and is trying diligently not to poison his wife.

What is an "eco-romance"? These are contemporary romances with ecological themes running through them. I hope the stories will help raise awareness of the vital part our environment plays in all our lives and convey the urgent need to reform environmental policy on the federal, state and local levels.

The news said 33 miners were trapped when the mine collapsed. 

And why wouldn’t they? 33 people were pulled out of the ground. 
The men were buried 700 meters below the surface. There was no way in or out. 
But the miners who were rescued all said the same thing: 
They said there were only 32 miners during the cave in. That they counted and they counted—every day—every few hours to make sure everyone was taken care of. 
Then one day they count again, and there were 33. A stranger was in their midst. 
Something escaped from the earth during that rescue that never should have seen the light of day. 

Demons, monsters, psychopaths, undead, mad-experiments, and terrifying paranormal encounters. 

The last confession from a serial killer will take your breath away. 
Why should you be afraid to leave an audio-recorder on overnight?
What could go wrong if you meet the Devil on Tinder?
Why does your reflection smile more than you do?
The Grim Reaper's scythe isn't to harvest you. He's there to protect you from what's waiting on the other side. 

Early readers are saying:

IN BETWEEN DAYS & Giveaway




In Between Days
by Anne Jamison

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Young Adult

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
BLURB:

Chicago suburbs, 1985. The high school. The mall. The blood-stained Mercedes. Misogyny. Homophobia. Class warfare. Cocaine.

(And the first semester isn’t even over yet.)

The Jocks with their pastel Izods. The Barbies. The loser Burnouts.

High school in the 1980s had rules. Barbies and Jocks can mix. Barbie cheerleaders steer clear of the losers. Punks want to burn it all down.

Samantha Ward doesn't love the rules, but she plays to win. So when a snarky Burnout goes after her in a face-off, of course she fights back. Of course she fights mean. She may not get his sex joke, but she knows he made one. About her. In front of the entire cafeteria. And what's worse, she feels a tingle when she looks at bad-boy Jason.

How could she know her mean girl put-down would launch a war? Or that the school she knows hides a darker world she never even dreamed of?

In Between Days is a pitch-perfect story of first love, friendship, and enemies; of loyalty, betrayal, and the power of secrets. This darkly funny, suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of The Outsiders and The Breakfast Club.

"GRIPPING AND UNPUTDOWNABLE." --Christina Lauren, international bestselling authors of Dating You/Hating You “THIS WAS a bittersweet tumble into eighties high school nostalgia, with all the angst, sexual tension and emotional confusion involved with first love, and so well done it was a non-stop read to the end.… (Oh, and one of the best first kisses I have EVER read...),” says one reviewer

Author's Note:

This is a historical novel that contains period language that is, and was then, and should be, offensive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EXCERPTS:




Turning to the swim team, who looked like coiled springs ready to shoot out at any moment, Samantha smiled sweetly. “Thanks, guys, but you should save it and bring it to your next meet. You know, somewhere it’ll count for something real.”

 ”Because you?” She looked Jason Devlin up and down and her upper lip curled as if a cockroach had crawled across her chicken, “You?” She sounded incredulous. “I mean, it’s true I don’t speak totally disgusting well enough to understand anything that’s coming out of your mouth, but it doesn’t matter. Because you know and I know no one cares what you say or do. Really.” She looked right into Jason Devlin’s eyes and she did not flinch. “You know. No one cares.”

She turned to her lunch, took a beat, then turned back, eyes wide. “Oh, are you still here? Look. Run along. Stop trying to make yourselves look better by talking to people who do matter. Go do some drugs or burn something down, or whatever it is that you do . . . do.”  She shrugged her pretty shoulders and began delicately slicing into her chicken.

Murmur of approval from the jock and Barbie tables. A few calls of “Face!” and burning sounds.

It was almost too easy. It wasn’t a game she’d signed up for, but that was no reason to lose.  

Jason Devlin raised his eyebrows. “Check it out, man, shallow and cold. You know, usually it isn’t the shallow water that’s so—” His tone grew sharper, which told Samantha she’d struck a nerve. “What’s the word? Oh, that’s right, frigid.”

High fives and snickers. Jason looked at Samantha once more in that same appraising way, and then at Dave Watson. “Dude, good luck diving there,” and he slouched off, fist bumping with some outstretched hands from the outlying tables.

These congratulations didn’t escape Samantha’s notice. They didn’t surprise her, either. It was part of being popular that a lot of people hated you. Without ever saying a word to you. It was just part of the deal,

Samantha sighed. It wasn’t like she loved every part of her life or every one of her friends. It was more that, as she scanned the lunch room—and she did this on a daily basis, the way a general keeps an eye on the territory he needs to hold—she didn’t see a lot of better alternatives. Samantha was at the top, because she could be. And falling from that height, especially if pushed, would be painful.

She turned to her table. “Oh my God. Whatever.”

Almost Home
by Kimmie Easley

When you know you’re in love with the right person, and you know why, and you know it’s for all the right reasons, and you know they’re all good…
Well, you just know.
Or at least you think you do.
That’s not me.
I don’t recognize good. It’s too few and far between. It’s been that way my whole, entire life.
And, unfortunately for him, it’s also become Avette’s new version of normal, thanks to his unyielding love for me. My husband’s blinded to all of the yuck and disgust that fucks me up from the inside out.
It’s a talent or a gift. Maybe a curse. Whatever it is, it’s not one I possess.
But the worst part is I see what he wants.
He wants me to feel the same. To see him in the same light. But that’s not how my heart was created. I can’t feel or love the same way that he does.
Life doesn’t mean the same to me as it does to him.
No, not until my entire world changed.
Hi, I’m Trini Baker, and I’m an addict.
