 Release Day! Purchase on Amazon
 
Release Date: June 17th 2014
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Book Two in the Lost Souls Series
 
Regan has a life in Georgia. She is going to school, has managed to make some friends, and has even found a new love interest in Colter. So what happens when she can’t hide what she is anymore? When do all the lies become too much to handle? And how much longer can she hold onto her sanity—while Agro pushes her closer and closer to the edge of no return—her ascension to Elite?

Colter is beautifully oblivious. Wanting so much to believe that Regan is safe, and Agro has been halted, he ignores Finn’s constant skepticism at the risk of their friendship. Overlooking what is so clearly right in front of him, Colter passes off Regan’s outbursts of emotion on her recent trauma. Colter can feel Regan—his one exception to his retribution—slipping out of his arms, but fighting her to stay with him may not be an option.

Colter and Finn are now at odds, and there is a newly formed alliance between Kaiden and Exile Max. Will this group of Collectors be enough to fight off the new enemies and old threats that emerge in the battle for souls when Regan is broken, and their group is on the brink of self-destruction?

The lost will be found, the Collectors will be exiled, and the Elites will reign.

About Book One, Retribution
retributionRegan Edison has just moved from California, to enter her first year at Georgia Liberty College, the place where jacked up Chevy trucks and hunting are a way of life. Regan hopes to start a new life for herself and she thinks that Georgia is just the place to do it. That is until she meets an unexpected stranger.

Colter Hayes is a member of the Collectors, a group of wrongfully punished lost souls. Colter and the rest of his team, Finn, Kaiden and Devon, work for the Requiem Council who pass judgment on those souls that are neither tagged for Heaven nor Hell. The Council has charged the Collectors with finding the lost in exchange for a chance at redemption.

When an ex-councilmember known to pass Retribution on lost souls sets his sights on Regan, the Requiem Council dispatches the Collectors to Georgia to work as protectors for Regan. The Collectors must fight to save Regan from a fate they know all too well, but can they work to earn back their chance at redemption or are their fates sealed forever?

Who is meant for Heaven?
Who is meant for Hell?
And who is just lost?

We weren't a relationship, we were a ticking time bomb...

Maggie Carpenter walked away from the hottest encounter of her life when she left the seductive glitz of England for summer break in her South Carolina hometown. Now that she’s returned to the International School in London—and sexy, privileged Samir Khouri is once again close enough to touch—she can’t help but remember the attraction, the drama … the heartbreak.

She can’t help but want him even more.

Samir can’t afford to fall for someone so far removed from his world, not when his time in London is running out. It's his senior year—his last chance at freedom before he returns home to Lebanon. There, he’ll be expected to follow in his father’s footsteps—not follow his heart to Maggie. But when a scorching secret hookup becomes a temptation neither can resist, they’ll both have to fight to survive the consequences … and find a future together.

Don’t miss this explosive sequel to I See London, and the riveting conclusion to Maggie and Samir’s story. This is a New Adult romance recommended for readers 17 and up.

Twenty-year-old Sanaa Griffin is about to get more than she bargained for when she wishes for love, happiness, and excitement on New Year’s Eve. Ripped from the job she always loved, she is reassigned to work for mysterious Mark Sakai and spy on the corrupt leaders of her city. War looms on the horizon, and Sanaa must help Sakai determine the key players and their weak spots before it’s too late.

Mark Sakai has many plans for Sanaa that will take her into a web of lies and danger, and her only protection is to learn to defend herself. But defense training under the watchful eye of Jiro, a strong and enigmatic young man she has a crush on, was not what she expected. Between falling in love with Jiro and the information she is gathering, Sanaa realizes Sakai is holding back secrets about her family and her deceased parents, secrets as to why she was chosen for this job, and learning the truth puts all of humanity in jeopardy.

REMOVED is the first book in a captivating post-apocalyptic series that harnesses the cultures and traditions of Japan and sweeps them into the future between Earth and a faraway land.

The epic romantic love story that is Miranda and Troy seems to be destined for a happy ending, but Miranda knows it's only a matter of time before her secret is discovered. A secret that will not only destroy their relationship, it will destroy Troy, too.

Can Miranda focus on her future with Troy while preventing her past from tearing them apart all over again?



Excerpt #1 –

It would be so easy to jump into his arms and drag him to bed, close my eyes, and let that physical part of me take over. I still wanted him so bad, but I wasn't supposed to do that anymore. I wasn’t supposed to use sex to mask my problems. Damn therapy.

"You could stay in here," he said.

"I don't think that's a good idea."

"I've really screwed things up, haven't I?" Troy stared at the ground.

"Troy, please don't do this."

"What?" He looked up.

"Make me feel sorry for you."

"At least I'd know you felt something for me."

"I do feel something for you." I sat down. "I love you."

He knelt in front of me, taking my hands. I watched as he brought them to his lips. "I love you, too."

I pulled my hands out of his grip.

"I can't do this. Not now. I know I said I was okay, but I don't know. Being here and remembering all the time we spent together in this room. You made me feel safe. I felt so connected to you. I thought you'd never hurt me, but I am hurt and sad and scared we'll never be able to get back what we had. I'm different, but you're different now, too."

"Please don't say that."

"I don't see how—" I began.

"No, we can fix this. I can fix it." Troy's tone showed his desperation. "Just, don't say there's no chance."

"It's how I feel. Even if we were to get back together again, it's not going to be the same."

Troy stood up. He had a defeated little boy look like someone stole his favorite toy, but he turned to me and made one more plea. "What can I do?"

"Give me some time, okay?" I stood up and headed to the door.

I didn't wait to hear his response. I closed the door behind me. As I headed to the living room, I grabbed a blanket from the hall closet and wrapped myself in it. I curled up into the corner of the coach and cried myself to sleep.
