Moving to a new town and taking on a new identity was supposed to keep me safe. News flash, it didn’t. Instead, it put me right into the most dangerous place imaginable. Cole Savage’s line of sight.
Stupid, perfect, and one of four members of the untouchable elite. They’re the Academy’s football stars, gods among their peers. And from the first day of school, he put a target on my back. All because of one stupid kiss.
My secrets are dark and dangerous. But based on the fury that drives Cole to ruin me, so are his. We’re both facing destruction, and he’s determined not to let me win.
He doesn’t know it, but he’s met his match. I’ll use his hate, and I’ll teach him that it burns as hot as his lust. And if he wants a war, I’ll give him one.

In one fell swoop, the resistance was shattered. Lives were taken. Hope was lost. Peace slipped like grains of sand through his fingers. So did the Crown of Stones. Now, forced into hiding, Ian Troy grapples for a way to save the realm—and free its people—from the sadistic clutches of Mirra’kelan’s new self-appointed emperor. Plagued with the knowledge of a tragic future, he strives to influence events and save those he cares for. But his magic has betrayed him, and Fate has other plans.
Marked by the crown, hindered by the transformation spell contained within, each cast brings Ian one step closer to becoming more beast than man. Each move brings the death and destruction foretold in his vision inexplicably nearer. With Langor on the brink of war, and King Malaq’s plan for peace hanging in the balance, Ian returns to the ancient past; seeking an end to the eldring spell and a means to thwart Jem’s growing domination. What he finds there sets off a chain of revelations that leads Ian places he never thought to go.
Entrusted with the future of his race, Ian becomes the linchpin for lasting change. But how much weight can one man carry? And how much is he willing to sacrifice in the name of peace?

There’s something about magic, action, and the supernatural that calls to my wicked soul. I enjoy most genre fiction, but am drawn to heroines like me and my weird circle of friends: not so slim, not that young, and even a wee bit cranky. But we also find joy and laughter, even in the darkest of times.
I fill my books with adventure, magic, loss, love, and casts bursting with diversity. Seriously, how boring would life be if we were all the same?
Okay, now the personal stuff.
I married the first boyfriend who made it past the four-month mark. Since we’ve been hitched over thirty-five years, I’m thinking he just might stick. The two cats? Well, they’re too spoiled and way too stubborn to move off the couch.
Take off your boots, grab a cold one and settle in for a magical good time.

Will and Maggie are just settling into the twentieth century when a note, discovered hidden in an old diary, turns their new world upside down. The message is from Dylan, and it urges them to return to the past to mend a rent in the fabric of time or risk altering events in both centuries. and not for the better. There are only two problems. First, they no longer have any stone left in the amulet, and second, even if they could somehow locate a new stone, what is it they need to change?
Richie Carnaby may have the answer to that question. Though he’s traveled through time himself, there are events from his sixteenth-century past he can’t recall, things that he should be able to. Could his selective amnesia mean that these occurrences remain unsettled, having turned on a course not set by destiny? But even if they are, what are Will and Maggie to do about it?
Back in the sixteenth century, Dylan is facing his own dilemma. Realizing almost at once that the threads of time have snapped and torn the very fabric itself, he is afraid the only way to mend the rent is to summon Will and Maggie back as soon as possible, but how? The stone has surely disintegrated, and even if a bit does remain, he hesitates to ask them to return and put their lives in jeopardy once again. Unless he does, however, the damage will remain undone, setting events on a course that was never meant to be. Can Will and Maggie find their way back to the sixteenth century and repair the tattered fabric, or will the threads of time continue to unravel throughout the centuries, altering history as they know it.

However, I can’t seem to evade my worry of my biological clock, and my fear that time is running out. I’ve always wanted to be a mother, and with each passing day, there is a greater chance that might be a dream of mine that will never come true.
And if the clock isn’t loud enough— my controlling and overly judgmental mom is. Her snide comments never go unsaid and her numerous failed attempts at setting me up with any new bachelors in town are enough to spur small town gossip for months at a time. Never mind the fact that she tried to set me up with Old Man Bucky down the street from her— the frail but sweet widow who walks with a cane and has grandchildren my age.
But this isn’t about my mom or her obsessive need to see me settle down and pop out the grand babies she so desperately wants. This is about the emptiness that has lingered inside of me for so long that I worry I will never fill it.
I have a lot to be thankful for in my life. I’m in good health. I run a successful cafe that I inherited from my grandparents and an incredibly handsome best friend who is willing to help make my dream of becoming a mother come true.
It may not be the most conventional way to start a family, but there is no one that I trust more. Besides, we agreed that it would only happen once. Regardless of the outcome, we walk away with our friendship intact. I know this is crossing the line of friendship, but this is my one shot. It’s one night.

Best friend extraordinaire, Nadine Garrison, is back for book two, but she’s got her own problems this time.
Sure, in retrospect, going into business with some guy I’d only been dating for six months sounds impulsive.
Okay, it was impulsive, but it was a good opportunity, and Heath put in as much money as I did. We were equal partners. Until he made an unauthorized withdrawal.
It’s not like he absconded to another country with the money. No, he sunk every dime into a foolproof investment. In my defense, I was vulnerable when we met, and Heath was only supposed to be my rebound guy. I never dreamed I’d have to financially rebound from him.
So now, while he’s busy hawking snake oil, trying to grow his downline, I’m out here just trying to maintain my sanity, stay on top of my game for my sales job, and keep our juice bar afloat.
But there’s always time for vengeance. Heath stole my money; I’ll take his beloved personal trainer. It’s a start.
Wick puts my body through the wringer, in the gym and out, but he’s so not my type. His storm-cloud eyes might see right through me, and his filthy mouth definitely takes my mind off my troubles for a while, but there is not a more arrogant man in the world. Like I said, so not my type. So, why do I keep seeing him?
A broke bitch can still be a bad bitch. And the more time I spend with Wick, the badder I want to be.

Cameron Pompeo has always seen things, felt things, he could not explain, the biggest of which is a young girl named Jocelyn, who appears nightly in his dreams. When his cousin Reed Pompeo suddenly shows up in his dream, Cameron realizes that not only does Jocelyn exist, but she will be important to them both.
After a tragic accident kills her mother, Jocelyn Parker struggles with her guilt. She pushes away the two most important people in her life as a form of self-punishment and tries to convince herself that she made them up, despite the fact that a sense in the very depths of her soul tells her that they’re real.
A cruise to the Mediterranean finally brings the three of them together. There, they make real memories and promises to each other, but what happens when the cruise is over? Will their love be strong enough to survive the outside forces that threaten to destroy their happiness?

Doctor Frank Enstein spent years becoming a sought-after cosmetic surgeon and not for the same reason as others in his field. For him, it wasn’t about tits and it certainly had nothing to do with ass. His motives were deeper, purer; something only someone with a similar tragic past would understand.
He merely put up with long lines of superficial women demanding exuberant changes to perfectly fine bodies. It was a means to an end, and finally it was all paying off.
His assignment with a new burn unit at Eastport General Hospital was the job he wanted—a place where he could really make a difference.
When a busty barmaid tries to start up a conversation, she threatens to drag him back into the practice he left behind. No matter how attractive she is, that couldn’t happen.
Taking a step backward isn’t part of the plan, but maybe it should be.
About C.A. King, USA Today Bestselling Author I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche. Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time. To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger. People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years. I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different. I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes – I want them to know they are making a difference. Fast forward to today… I am an award-winning & USA Today Bestselling Author with over 50 books available across multiple fantasy sub-genres. Awards include: 2020 USA Today Bestselling Author Hamilton Spectator Readers’ Choice Award in the Best Local Author category 2017 & 2018 & 2019 Brant News Readers’ Choice Award: Best Local Author 2017 Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards: Best Novella/Short Story 2017 Silver medal 2017 SIBA Awards – Best Novella 2017 SIBA Awards – Best New Adult 2018 Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards: Gold Medal in the Fiction – Supernatural genre 2018 Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards: Bronze Medal in the Fiction – New Adult genre 2019 Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal Winner in the Fiction – Supernatural genre 2019 Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal Winner in the Young Adult – Fantasy – Urban genre City of Brantford Featured Artist February 2020 Burlington Post Readers’ Choice Award in the Best Local Author Category 2020 Toronto Star Readers’ Choice Award in the Best Local Author Category 2020

King
A childhood friends to lovers romantic suspense novel.
What if you’ve known the love of your life since he was six years old and happens to be your little brother’s best friend? But the man whom Callie runs into in the middle of the desert in Morocco isn’t the little Brandon Rossi she once knew. He is a work of art.
Brandon Rossi is the boy-next-door in a rock star package. As the front man of the rock band Canis Major, a visual artist, and an avid stargazer, he expresses his thoughts and feelings through his music, arts, and tattoos. When he hits an invisible wall that hinders his ability to create, he starts on a quest to find inspiration. Who knew Brandon’s ultimate inspiration comes in the form of an unconventional beauty with golden eyes? He did. He always knew because she was the one who got away.
Calliope Chen-Bisset is a hard-working Parisian art gallerist who has gone through many hurdles in life. She was once broken, but she has tried her best to put herself back together—piece by piece. She doesn’t think she’ll be whole again until a blast from the past reminds her of who she is. The years haven’t dulled their connection. They’ve intensified it.
Brandon is willing to lay down everything for her, but will Calliope open up to him like she once did? Will she let a little fact that he is her little brother’s best friend stop her? Or will it be her past that cast a shadow on their future?
This book has mature situations and some domestic violence themes, though without graphic depiction, which may be considered triggers for some. However, it is also a story of rising from the ashes stronger. Reader discretion is advised.
C. R. Alam loves to write heartfelt and steamy love stories with strong yet vulnerable characters readers would root for. There hasn’t been a main character she’s written about whom she didn’t fall in love with despite their shortcomings. She’ll laugh with her characters, cry along with them, then laugh again in the end. When she’s not reading or writing, you’ll most likely find her in the kitchen, cooking, baking, or eating while wearing her trusted Birks, sweatpants, and “I’m emotionally attached to fictional characters” T-shirt. After a whirlwind decade of living abroad, C. R. now lives in Durham, NC, with her husband, daughter, and cat.

Marriage, parenting, and making ends meet is a long road to haul─and I’ve screwed it all up. My ex thinks I’m a deadbeat. My daughter has lost all faith in me. As a long-haul truck driver, I haven’t been there for either of them. Now that I’ve been caught driving my rig without a license it proves them right.
Since I’m on probation, I’ve been forced to take a co-driver on the road with me and prove to him that I can safely pass my commercial license, even though I’ve been doing this for a decade.
This is my last shot to continue with my company and prove myself to my broken family. I’ve missed a lot but I’m going to make it up to my daughter. I’m not going to blow it. Not this time. I’m going to get the money my daughter needs. There’s a financial bonus in my future if I can talk Jake, my co-driver and probationary instructor, into hustling his laidback, rule-following ass into finishing the job early.
As Jake and I travel together, the long drive and miles ahead of us bring us closer than I’m comfortable with─or am I? Suddenly, I’m feeling things I never thought possible with another man. Could Jake be the “ride or die” I’ve been yearning for my entire life? Is the road less traveled the one I’ve always needed? Am I scared? Hell, yes!

One of the rapists is Ben’s best friend, Clint, the son of a Congressman who is also a family friend and the author of the letter of recommendation that helped Ben get accepted to Yale.
Over the following days, Ben finds out that no one cares about the girl. His parents don’t. The rapists’ parents don’t. Even Ben’s older sister isn’t concerned.
