Teenager Emma Watts doesn’t believe in true love. After all, she’s worked for two years in her family’s PI business catching cheating husbands in the act. Then Owen Emerson arrives (while she’s in the middle of a stakeout, no less), claiming Emma has inherited a deceased aunt’s ability to supernaturally match soul mates.

Owen Emerson is a Protector, a person fated to protect Matchmakers for eternity.

But as he soon finds out, Emma Watts is anything but professional. Fortunately, when she has her first vision matching two friends, she has no alternative but to believe Owen’s claims. But Owen isn’t the only one interested in Emma. When the supernatural world discovers how to exploit Emma’s matchmaking abilities for their own, she has no choice but to trust the man who holds her life, and her heart, in his hands.

The Book of Maggie Bradstreet

Maggie Bradstreet is a curious girl of thirteen with a mind of her own, which can get her into trouble in Puritan New England. She wants nothing more than to prove to her brother’s friend Job that she is no longer a child, but when witches are discovered in their community of Andover, Massachusetts, her world turns upside down. Maggie’s diary tells of excitement turned to horror as more and more people are accused of witchcraft, and her best friend’s mother is taken off to jail. She tries to save her friends and in the end must save herself.

Amber Magic (Haven Series #1)

The humans have no magic and are hunted for sport, but that is about to change. War is coming….

The Sun Dragon spawned nine lesser dragons which devoured their parent for the power the elder possessed. These young dragons fought for choice bits of the Sun Dragon, but each only managed to eat a portion, thus giving them specific powers.

These Nine Eyes, or Jewels, form the basis for all magic in the world.

Random Acts of Crazy (Random Series #1)

By Julia Kent / Genre: Coming of Age / Rating: 3.6 out of 5 stars (214 reviews)

Random Acts of Crazy (Random Series #1)
I never intended to pick up a naked hitchhiker wearing nothing but a guitar. A guitar. Really. I don’t collect guys like that (don’t ask what kind of guys I do collect), but when you spot a blonde, tanned, sculpted man with a gorgeous smile and his thumb poking up and practically begging you to stop – you stop.

And I definitely never thought I’d be staring into the bright blue eyes of Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, an indie rock star I followed like the slobbering fileshare fangirl I am. How he came to be nude and lost six hundred miles from home is quite the tale, but how we fell in love is even more unreal.

Because someone like Trevor Connor, headed to Harvard Law next year, isn’t supposed to want someone like me, a rural Ohio chick majoring in Boredom at Convenience Store University who is all curves and frizzy blonde hair and manners so unpolished they have sharp edges that make you bleed.

But he did.

When his best friend, Joe Ross, the bass player for Random Acts of Crazy and a man who makes Calvin Klein models look like Shrek, drove eleven hours through the night to rescue him, though, it got real complicated. It’s one thing to like two different guys and be torn.

What do you do, though, when maybe – just maybe – you don’t have to choose?

Every girl deserves something sweet…

Lydia Vanderwalk has an obsession with candy, so when she invents an NEB (non-existent boyfriend) who turns out to be the male hire-a-date equivalent of a jumbo box of Hot Tamales she knows she’s in trouble.

Lydia has worked hard to have the right job, the right wardrobe, and the right everything else, in the quest for the appearance of perfection. When she needs her NEB for a golden career opportunity, she enlists a talent agent friend’s help to produce perfect date Phelps. He was supposed to be pure eye candy, but there’s more going on beneath the surface than Red Hots looks and Pop Rocks spontaneity.

Throw in a banking wunderkind ex-fiancé, a trio of cutthroat couture-climbers, and a designer of questionable orientation and origin, and Lydia soon learns that what you see is often much less than what you get when it comes to people and not everything in life can be solved by a Jolly Rancher and a shopping spree.

Camelot & Vine

Telling lies is second nature to Casey Clemens, whether to strangers on national television or to her mother on the phone. Casey’s got a decent condo, a cleaning lady, and a rich boyfriend (never mind that he’s married). If Casey feels dissatisfied, all she has to do is fantasize about her hero, King Arthur.

It feels like an acting career, sort of, until the day before Casey’s 40th birthday, when she loses everything she never cared about, falls through a gap in time, and accidentally saves the real King Arthur’s life. He’s grateful, but he has enemies, war encroaches, and an actress with an honesty problem has no place in a war camp. Not if she wants to make it back to the 21st century alive. Not that she could go back if she wanted to. Not that she wants to.

Dumb White Husband vs. The Grocery Store (A Short Story)

By Benjamin Wallace / Genre: Humor & Satire / Rating: 4.1 out of 5 stars (59 reviews)

Dumb White Husband vs. The Grocery Store (A Short Story)

John is a dumb white husband. That is to say that he loves and cares for his family, is successful in his career, popular around the neighborhood, can dress himself (often without injury) and is capable of reasonable thought. Demographically, however, he functions like a 4-year-old that can’t quite master the intricacies of the potty.

It isn’t his fault. He studied hard and got a college degree. He works hard and earns a comfortable living. But, like all other dumb white husbands, he leads a dual life; competent member of society by day, helpless male by night, weekends and holidays.

He has served for years as the nervous legal department-approved foil of commercials, TV and movies. And, for this service, we thank him. No one has ever cared to look inside the mind of the dumb white husband – probably for a fear of what we might find – but, if we took a minute to consider it, we may see that he’s not as dumb as we all think. But, he probably is.

In this adventure, Dumb White Husband goes to the grocery store.
