Petals
by Laurisa White Reyes
Genre: YA Contemporary

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.

denial, she no longer trusts her instincts. One man embodies her
past, the other could be her future, but which one holds her heart?
Isadora must choose between her family and two very different men.
Either way, her choice could cost her everything.
In a game of kings, bishops, rooks, and knights there are no guarantees.

Out
by Cara Dee
Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance
***
I guess I always figured coming out was something you did for friends
and family, and maybe it is, but it’s personal too, you know? The
person I was last night is new. I wanna get to know him.”

I had two things on my list when I arrived in Los Angeles. One, track
down Henry Bennington, the uncle and guardian of my little brother’s
best friend, and tell him to get his ass back to Washington. He
needed to do something about his nephew, who was turning into a
douchebag. And two, figure out just how non-straight I was. For the
past two years, I’d had all these fantasies, and now was the time
to explore them, far away from my sleepy little town.
Nowhere on this list did it say, “Get Ty’s uncle into bed and fall for
him.” I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with another city either.
But between brunch, making new friends, and discovering the man I was
meant to be, I lost sight of the future that had once seemed pretty
damn vivid. How the hell was I supposed to merge my old life and who
I used to be with the new dreams Los Angeles and Henry had awakened
in me?
(Standalone.)

I’m often stoically silent or, if the topic interests me, a chronic
rambler. In other words, I can discuss writing forever and ever.
Fiction, in particular. The love story—while a huge draw and
constantly present—is secondary for me, because there’s so much
more to writing romance fiction than just making two (or more) people
fall in love and have hot sex. There’s a world to build, characters
to develop, interests to create, and a topic or two to research
thoroughly. Every book is a challenge for me, an opportunity to learn
something new, and a puzzle to piece together. I want my characters
to come to life, and the only way I know to do that is to give them
substance—passions, history, goals, quirks, and strong opinions—and
to let them evolve. Additionally, I want my men and women to be
relatable. That means allowing room for everyday problems and, for
lack of a better word, flaws. My characters will never be perfect.

Wait…this was supposed to be about me, not my writing.
I’m a writey person who loves to write. Always wanderlusting,
twitterpating, kinking, and geeking. Advocate for equality and Autism
awareness. There’s time for hockey and cupcakes, too. But mostly, I
just love to write.

A military police officer on the verge of a new beginning. A beautiful woman
devoted to her career and her dream of putting down roots. The
hardest thing they’ll ever do is to take a chance on love . . .
Navy Chief Master at Arms Jackson “Jax” Faraday is at a crossroads. He has
to decide whether to reenlist or get out while he’s young enough to
make a difference in the civilian world. Either choice could mean
leaving behind his girl: his K-9 partner, Bella. But when she’s
injured during a training session, Jax’s only concern is making
sure she’s okay.
As the Navy base veterinarian, town local Risa Reynolds is right where she
belongs: close to her parents in a farmhouse full of animals—with
room to grow. She’s seen enough to put military men are on her “not
happening” list, because they always leave.
But when a tall, hazel-eyed sailor arrives in her clinic with his dog in his
arms, Risa finds herself falling hard. And all kinds of rules will
get broken when Jax, a man who sticks to the straight and narrow,
learns that there’s no predicting the twists and turns of the heart

Gail Chianese’s love of reading began at
the tender age of three, when she’d make her grandpa read Fourteen
Country Rabbits over and over and over again (and correct him when he
skipped parts). While she’s branched out over the years by reading
mystery, women’s fiction, and urban fantasy, she always circles
back to romance in the end. That’s probably because she’s married to
her real life hero. Her wonderful hubby has served in the US Navy for
the past twenty two years and he’s done things he can’t tell her
about. But it doesn’t stop her from being extremely proud of him
and the sacrifices he makes for her, his family, and his country.
He’s also uber-supportive of her dreams and of their three
children. Living in Mystic, CT and a member of Connecticut Romance
Writers of America, Gail loves to hear from readers.

Heel Lead

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction

Because life is one big ballroom – and all we can do is dance… Former UK
dance champion Caroline Elliott has two burning passions in her life:
her sexy, young Spanish lover Antonio, and the weekly Ballroom dance
class she teaches to a diverse group of enthusiastic locals in the
small English town of Castleham where she lives. But Caroline has a
problem. The numbers attending her class have dwindled, and unless
she can somehow breathe new life into it, she will have no choice but
to close it down. A dance display at the local Arts Festival might
just be the perfect opportunity to showcase her students and pull in
those much-needed new members. How difficult could it be? With the
date of the display approaching, however, illness, affairs and
relationship break-ups threaten to crush Caroline’s hopes. As she
battles to keep rehearsals on track and soothe her students’
rampant nerves, she must also conquer the demons of a long-ago
tragedy in her own life. Will she be able to let go of her fears and
step into the spotlight once again? Heel Lead is an emotional,
passionate and poignant story that entertains while it tugs at your
heartstrings. In this short yet compelling novel, author Dawn K.
Henderson presents a captivating tale of the power of love, dance and
the ties that bind us.

Dawn K. Henderson: Storyteller, poet & author
Goddess in training and ballroom diva (at least in her imagination)
12 years ago, Dawn walked into her first Ballroom dance class and the
love affair began. Since then she has tango’d and quickstepped,
waltzed and rumba’d through life. Although at the time of writing
Heel Lead, she is without a permanent dance partner, she is fortunate
enough to have good friends who lend her their men occasionally –
she usually hands them back undamaged.
As D. K. Henderson, she is the author of The Skull Chronicles series of
metaphysical adventure novels .
She lives and writes in the mystical, magical county of Wiltshire,
England surrounded by crop circles, the ancient & mysterious
stone monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury, and her own family of
crystal skulls. When she isn’t wandering the ancient downlands that
inspire her novels and poetry, you’ll probably find her pottering in
the garden, foraging in the hedgerows or attempting a nifty Cha cha
or elegant Waltz on the dance floor.

From the author of THE HALLOWED ONES and NINE OF STARS comes a new novel blending the magical and the real…
“This is war,” the dragon said. And she believed him.
Di fled rural West Virginia to study music and pursue a bright future as a violinist. But when a mining accident nearly kills her father, she is summoned back home to support her family. Old ghosts and an old flame emerge from the past. When Di gets a job as a bookkeeper at the same mine where her father worked, she is drawn into a conflict pitting neighbor against neighbor as the mine plans an expansion to an untouched mountain.
If the mining company’s operation goes forward, there will be more at stake than livelihoods or the pollution of the land: Di has discovered a dragon lives deep within Sawtooth Mountain, and he is not happy with this encroachment upon his lair. When catastrophe strikes, Di must choose between her family’s best interests and protecting the dragon – the last surviving bit of magic in Di’s shrinking world.
In every fight, sides are chosen. And there can be no yearning for what has been left behind.

past. She keeps food on her plate and clothes on her back by

A small town in the Deep South isn’t where most gay men would choose to go
looking for love. But open hearts will find a way . . .
Growing up in the Bible Belt, Paul Dunham learned from a young age to hide his
sexuality. Now he’s teaching psychology at a conservative college
in Georgia—and still hiding who he really is. If Paul hopes to get
tenure, he needs to keep his desires on the down-low. But when an old
college crush shows up on campus—looking more gorgeous than
ever—Paul’s long-suppressed urges are just too big for one little
closet to hold . . .
Brandon Mercer has come a long way since his freshman year fumblings with
Paul. Now he’s confident, accomplished, proudly out—and the
sexiest IT consultant Paul’s ever seen. When Brandon asks Paul to
grab some coffee and catch up, it leads to a steamy reunion that puts
their first night of passion to shame. But when Paul’s longtime
crush turns into a full-time romance, he receives an anonymous email
threatening to expose their secret to the world. If Paul stays with
Brandon, his teaching career is over. Yet if he caves under pressure,
he risks losing the one true love he’s been waiting for. . .
