Heart of Time
Ruined Heart, Book 1
by Sky MacKinnon
Genre: Fantasy, Lesbian Romance
***
***
For Eona, manipulating time is second
nature. It gives her an edge in her dramatic circus performances, but
it also separates her from the other artists in her troupe. She has
always known that her unique kind of magic could make her a target,
but she couldn’t have prepared for being kidnapped, manipulated and
imprisoned by a megalomaniac sorcerer.
In order to figure out what he wants
from her, she needs to explore her own magic, the bond she feels with
a mythical creature, and the feelings she has for a certain beautiful
elven woman.
There are about twenty illustrations
in the book, drawn by artists from all over the world.

see her for dust.

Leave the Pieces Behind
by Shirley Anne Edwards
Genre: YA Romance
***
***
Bree Apollo is an average fifteen-year-old girl: she loves chocolate,
baking cupcakes, and her neighbor, the hunky and all around popular
seventeen-year-old Foster Quinn. Except Foster is clueless about her
feelings for him, instead treating her like a kid sister and begging
for her homemade desserts. As a fellow chocolate lover, he should be
Bree’s for the taking, if it weren’t for his oh-so-perfect
girlfriend.
After she overhears Foster making fun of her to his friends, she’s
devastated. And not even chocolate can take away the pain. She
intends to wallow in grief for a boy that was never hers to begin
with, but Austen, her eccentric new neighbor has other ideas.
The strange boy down the street always wears a black fedora, walks
barefoot, and focuses all his energy on building a treehouse in his
backyard. For some reason, he’s elected Bree to help him. At first,
she turns him down because he acts too awkward and takes everything
she says literally. But after learning of his autism, she decides to
help with his construction (forgiving him for not being a chocolate
fan), even though she doesn’t know a think about power tools.
As Bree and Austen grow closer, Foster notices Bree no longer worships
the ground he walks on. He wants her to go back to that doting
version of Bree, but Austen has become more important to her than
she’s ready to admit.
Austen may just be the one to help her move on from Foster.
Like two pieces of a puzzle, they fit together perfectly.

On Christmas Eve, a horrific car accident leaves Carly Perez without a
mom. After a year of surgeries and counseling, Carly’s life is
nearly back to normal—except for the monsters—vague, twisted
images from the accident that plague her dreams. When her father
insists on spending their first Christmas alone in Guatemala with a
slew of relatives Carly has never met, she is far from thrilled, but
she reluctantly boards the plane anyway.

That’s where she first spots the man with the scarred face. She could swear
she has seen him before. But when? Where?
In Reu, the Guatemalan town where her father grew up, Carly meets
Miguel, her attractive step-cousin, and thinks maybe vacation won’t
be a total waste after all. Though she is drawn to him, Carly’s
past holds her back—memories that refuse to be forgotten, and a
secret about the accident that remains buried in her subconscious.
And everywhere she turns, the man with the scarred face is there,
driving that unwelcome secret to the surface.

Excerpt:

 
Lexie awoke with a start from a
sound sleep. Gaping into the blackness of the strange bedroom, she discovered the
storm had abated and she detected the creaks and groans of the old house. Then
a crack from the floorboards made her flinch.
It came from Will’s
side of the bed. She reached out to shake him, but he didn’t move.
“Will?”
She received a
muffled grunt.
Another crack in
the floor, but this time it happened right next to her side of the bed. An odor
lingered in the air.
Is
that coffee?

A column of
light glittering to her left made Lexie’s mouth go dry. The oddity soon took on
the shape of a man.
His strong
frame, long arms, and tapered hands came into view. Good-looking, despite the
cruel curl of his lips, his chiseled features, and engaging eyes, made her
insides tingle. But when the cut of his old-fashioned red vest, long black
coat, and white ascot tie took shape, Lexie understood this wasn’t some hazy
fantasy. She didn’t fantasize about men from another century.
Lexie clutched
her bedsheet as a fearful scream rose in her throat.
“Please, my
dear, don’t bore me with your petty shrieks,” the figure said, his tone
condescending.
Like a lightbulb
getting enough electricity to reach its wattage, his image brightened, bringing
out his details. Lexie scrutinized the buttons on his coat, the fine craftsmanship
of his high black boots, and grasped the identity of her visitor.
Then a loud pop rang out, and he was gone. It
happened so fast, Lexie questioned if it had happened at all.
“Welcome to Altmover Manor, Ms.
Arden.” She recognized the voice of the apparition. “I hope you enjoy your stay.”

 

This time, Lexie did not hold back her scream, and as she opened her
mouth …
