It's Not Over

Gwen

Lately, life definitely isn't how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn't. I don't know when exactly things started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage. To the only man I've ever loved.

Now, he's back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that our love is worth giving this another chance. I'm not sure if he's right, but I know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.


Harrison

Why is it that you don't know the depths of your mistakes until you've already made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that's what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me. She's no longer mine.

That's when I also realized that I would do anything to change the past. I have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We never should have ended. I'm in for the battle of my life to convince her to give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that it's not over.

Their opening: a temporal disturbance in the starstream, a hyperspatial thoroughfare used by myriad civilizations.

Only Bandicut and his friends have the knowledge and experience to act. But several of Bandicut?s company have gone missing.

About Series (Books 1-4)
Biankha has enjoyed a life all her own for near a decade. College in the city a state away, a tiny apartment, a mundane job she enjoyed?all a place for her to leave the responsibility of magic behind?and not just because of the human neighbors.
However?she?s forever tied to her home because of duties required of the high position she was gifted in life. A home she did all she could to escape for a taste of freedom and peace?only never setting a return date.
Her bloodline produces one heir per generation to serve as ?The Universal Librarian?Keeper of Ancient Knowledge?. A high, respected position to all supernaturals?and coveted prize for cons and thieves.
Currently her mother?s job in the small community she had no issue waving goodbye to. A mix of supernaturals owning nearly the entire town as suburbanized mob-bosses, retired elders, former bosses, and a dash of humans to keep up appearances. The All-American ?human? dream with the modest homes, safe streets, and schools not filled to max capacity.
The bonus of that position, returning to ?take her place at the elite table??the gods designed specifically for her a guardian to ensure her safety for life. As her father is for her mother. Although, Biankha is only part of a generation as never seen before. Yet Ancients prophesized their existence?one day.
The special bonus for Biankha?s return to duty?her guardian may be the boy she never got over. The ?bar? she set for all men she met. Not another man out there had a smile reserved for only her?nor eyes only she could see into his soul.

Jay, best friend of her older brother, became the live-in student her father must train not knowing who would be her true guardian in this life. He joined her family following the death of his father and subsequent abandonment of his own mother.
Friends for life became the crush that intertwined their hearts, building the foundation for what was to come much later. Revelations of their teenage secret affair fueled initially by youthful lust later exposes a bond unbreakable by even them.

A late night call from her mother in jail pulls Biankha back to the circus of home she?d been avoiding...and later has her questioning why she left. Until a semi-retired council elder and ?part-time boss? of his own empire stand to be their greatest nemesis?the same man that landed both of her parents in a human jail.
Biankha must help the family hold everything together?keep her parents out of prison?and get this guy for daring to mess with her family in the first place. Plans do change when they learn that his sights have been set on her and her magic, all along.
The twisted labyrinth of a single madman?s design uncovered a piece at a time?one fight at a time?until the puzzle can be successfully solved. The man they know as Clyde must be stopped before he takes out Biankha, her guardian, and family. Possibly wiping out their entire community too.

A comical, action packed look at supernaturals born and chosen to create a large extended family Biankha herself never understood the reach. Exposing their business model and way of life close to that of a 1950?s mob movie helped get a few cards on the table.
With the help of ?cooperating? neighbors, fellow hometown business owners with a similar thorn in their side, and shared desire to restore order, that the whole truth is revealed in ways no one expected or predicted, and threatens more than one girl?s life.
If Clyde?s going down?he?s taking everyone with him?if not shoving them in first!
The lessons Biankha learns?that is revealed in these pages?over time. The theme to this she discovered early on. Though the grass may be exciting and pleasant elsewhere?sometimes, the lawn at home is just greenest.

Keeping Her Curves: A billionaire romance, Ian & Juno's story
?Plus-size model Juno Bell breaks into billionaire?s mansion estate.? I can already see the social media headlines now?

Of course, with my luck, it isn?t the evil paparazzi who catch me in the act. It?s billionaire Ian Dekker himself. And weirdly enough, he?s amused by the whole thing (this time?let?s not get into the last three times?the man really needs better security). He even takes a photo of me on his phone in all my breaking-and-entering glory as a souvenir.

This whole thing is going to kill my career, I just know it. But I don?t care. Saving my dad?s big cat rescue from being demolished by Dekker and his big property development plans is the goal. My parents already endured enough at the hands of another rich guy without a conscience. Preventing it from happening again is the only thing that matters.

Only, Ian?s different from the other life-ruining billionaire. Still richer than sin. But different. He?s actually willing to help my family.

And what he wants in exchange?is me.

Million Dollar Marriage

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Evans comes a hot romance about two strangers and their race to fall in love.

If someone had bet Nell a million dollars that she would be saying ?I do? to a complete stranger on national television, she?d have called them crazy, but with her crushing student loan payments sending her deep into the red, she?s out of options. This should be nothing more than a business transaction?until she sets eyes on her groom, and everything changes.

The game is on the instant Luke spots Penelope ?Nell? Carpenter. He?s out for the money, yes, but getting a little dirty with Nell doesn?t sound too bad either. Everyone knows he?s not the marrying kind, so it?s a good thing it?s just for show. God knows he?s the worst guy his pretty wife should pick for real.

They have nothing in common, but if they want the grand prize, they?ll have to beat out eight other couples. Proving that total opposites attract should be easy enough?as long as they don?t fall in love in the process.

Whatever Happens
Violet Page is having a rough time. This former popular girl is lost. Her parents uproot everything after her younger sister?s suicide, moving states away to escape the lingering pain of loss. She doesn?t fit in anywhere, but finds herself strangely drawn to the boy she watches view the world through a telescope.
Finnley Crawford isn?t your typical boy next door. Being autistic has always set him apart from kids his age. None of them quite knows how to approach him or interact, leaving him only one friend in the form of his support dog. His lack of friendships lead him to a unique love of space and aspirations of one day reaching the stars. For in the stars, he sees a peace and beauty he can?t find on Earth.
The more time these two seemingly opposite teenagers spend together, the more they learn it isn?t what?s on the outside that counts. So much can be found on the inside if you only care to look.

Second Treatise of Government
A highly influential figure in the Age of Enlightenment in England and France, whose works helped inspire the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, John Locke was one of the most important political theorists in Western history. In The Second Treatise of Government, a major contribution to the principles underlying modern democracies, he achieved two objectives: refuting the concept of the divine right of monarchy, and establishing a theory of government based on the ultimate sovereignty of the people.
In A Letter Concerning Toleration, composed as early as 1667 but not published for political reasons until 1689 ? after the "Glorious Revolution" ? Locke pleaded for religious tolerance on grounds similar to his argument for political freedom, i.e., that all men are by nature "free, equal, and independent," and are entitled to freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of worship. To help guarantee the latter freedom, Locke called for separation of church and state.
The basis of social and political philosophy for generations, these works laid the foundation of the modern democratic state in England and abroad. Their enduring importance makes them essential reading for students of philosophy, history, and political science.

One Good Deed
The #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces an unforgettable new character: Archer, a straight-talking former World War II soldier fresh out of prison for a crime he didn't commit.

It's 1949. When war veteran Aloysius Archer is released from Carderock Prison, he is sent to Poca City on parole with a short list of do's and a much longer list of don'ts: do report regularly to his parole officer, don't go to bars, certainly don't drink alcohol, do get a job--and don't ever associate with loose women.

The small town quickly proves more complicated and dangerous than Archer's years serving in the war or his time in jail. Within a single night, his search for gainful employment--and a stiff drink--leads him to a local bar, where he is hired for what seems like a simple job: to collect a debt owed to a powerful local businessman, Hank Pittleman.

Soon Archer discovers that recovering the debt won't be so easy. The indebted man has a furious grudge against Hank and refuses to pay; Hank's clever mistress has her own designs on Archer; and both Hank and Archer's stern parole officer, Miss Crabtree, are keeping a sharp eye on him.

When a murder takes place right under Archer's nose, police suspicions rise against the ex-convict, and Archer realizes that the crime could send him right back to prison . . . if he doesn't use every skill in his arsenal to track down the real killer.
Slay All Day
What happens when a monster hunter falls for his prey?

Harrison Key has one job?hunt and destroy monsters. He?s taken out vamps, shifters, demons?it?s all in a night?s work for him. He protects the innocent and destroys the wicked. Case closed. The job doesn?t pay much and the benefits are literally hell, but a hunter is born to the work. Gifted with super strength and speed, Harrison was created to fight monsters. There is nothing else for him in this world.

Then he meets her.

She looks like innocence but makes him think of the hottest sin. When Harrison first meets Elise Aine, she?s surrounded by vamps who are only too eager to take a bite. Harrison stakes the vamps and intends to walk away from Elise, but she has other plans. She says that she?s under supernatural attack. Elise desperately needs his protection, and she?ll pay any price. One look into her dark and gorgeous eyes, and Harrison can?t walk away. He doesn?t want to walk away. He wants her.

What Harrison doesn?t know?could just kill him.

Elise isn?t human. Not by a long shot. And she?s got big plans for Harrison. Sure, the guy may think he?s a hunter, he may believe that his job is to rid the world of the wicked, but he?s dead wrong. And with her help, Harrison may just turn out to be the wickedest one of them all. Because he?s not really a hunter. He?s something far, far more interesting. And hot. Smokin?, in fact.

He just needs to let his wild side out to play?

As the queen of the fairies, Elise was born to trick and deceive, and, with way too many enemies closing in, she needs the most powerful protector imaginable at her side. Harrison is her destined mate, if he?ll just stop fighting monsters long enough to see that deep inside?he is a beast. A beast like no other. One that can blast fire and soar into the skies. A beast who can only be bound and tamed by love.

Betrayal burns deep and cuts hard.

Can the queen of the fairies show a hunter that even monsters can love? Or when he finds out the truth about her, will rage be all that Harrison knows? Either way, things are about to get red-hot. Watch out for the flames and smoke.

Author?s Note: SLAY ALL DAY is a stand-alone with action, humor, and plenty of hot times ahead. Sit down, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!

Now, as Thrawn?s TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennic?s secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets. 

As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protégé Eli Vanto returns with a dire warning about Thrawn?s homeworld. Thrawn?s mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: duty to the Chiss Ascendancy, or fealty to the Empire he has sworn to serve. Even if the right choice means committing treason.

Nope?
Still doesn?t cut it.

Dear Fate?yeah, that?s the one.

Dear Fate,
What the actual hell?
What exactly did I do to deserve the life you paved for me?
Did I bother you so?
Was I awful?
Did I not pray enough?
You took my life into your hands, fate, and you twisted it.
You turned it into a broken mess, and you made it ugly.
You made meugly.
A life for a life.
An eye for an eye.
That?s how it goes, right?
Her life. Now mine.
Someone is coming for me, but you already know that, don?t you fate?
Did you plan it?
Did you even try to tell them it wasn?t my fault?
That it was an accident?
That I didn?t mean for it to happen?
Or is this part of your sick and twisted plan?
I have one last question, fate, before you go?
Have you got a hero for me?
Because I?m going to need one.
