Demons by K.F. Breene
Book 4 in the Darkness series
Genre: urban fantasy

About Demons:
It’s been a long road, but Sasha has finally claimed her role as the least knowledge mage in history. She’s also acquired a new, incredibly grumpy bodyguard, and a spunky new BFF. With her team by her side, she learns the ropes of this new profession.

Her experience level is about to be fast-tracked, however.

On a routine trip to check out a perimeter breach, she encounters a hideous demon called by an experienced magic worker. It is this terrifying discovery that unlocks a deeper problem: Stefan’s troubled past and the reason he gravely mistrusts the Mata.

While Sasha struggles to fight the physical demons, Stefan struggles to fight the demons of his past. If he fails, his future in Sasha will be lost.

The Book

Saying Goodbye, Love Is Learning To Say Goodbye by Mahima Martel
Genre: Literary Fiction

About Saying Goodbye, Love Is Learning To Say Goodbye:
What is love? Is it a possession, something to confine and put on display? Is it declarations for the whole world to hear, or is it a precious space within the heart?

After a tragic event in which agents and parents keep them apart, Frankie and Alex maintain a long distance love affair throughout the turbulent Sixties, away from the prying eyes of the press and the fans. Separated, their love breeds strength to overcome obstacles that once held them down. Individually, they blossom creatively and their talents soar to new heights. Within the secrecy of their relationship, they learn greater lessons of love, lessons not defined by society, but by the heart and the soul.

A true lover knows what the other needs and will often make great personal sacrifices for the well-being of their lover. Sometimes the strength of love is being able to say goodbye.

Frankie couldn’t help it; she was so excited to be alone with him. “So, how was your incredible and inspiring trip?”

Alex sat down across the table from her with a bowl of fruit loops and a cup of tea. “Where to start? Australia was out of this world. Heard some incredible Aborigine music, and then a mad Aussie got me wasted. India was a spiritual hell hole, and I spent most of my time with the chattiest of Hindus, but a real nice fellow. South Africa, my guide, Cebo, was a crazier driver than you.”

“Crazier than you?” Frankie asked with a smirk.

“Crazier than you,” Alex restated strongly and laughed. “I jammed with a Zulu band, and they gave me the name Luyanda.”

“Sounds like a girl’s name,” said Frankie.

“Shut up. It’s very manly. It means love to grow,” he said.

Frankie looked at Alex curiously. “Love to grow? Your love is still growing?”

“Yes, apparently I am blossoming, like a budding flower,” he said with a smile and batting of his eye lashes.

“Girl,” teased Frankie.

Alex playfully kicked Frankie under the table. “Smarty,” he said and munched on a heaping spoonful of Fruit Loops. “Peru was a bit sad.”

“Why was Peru sad?” questioned Frankie with a mouthful of cornflakes.

“I saw this young man play guitar. He reminded me of myself years ago, but untouched and not jaded. His soul and his playing were pure. Not only have I lost that, I’m afraid I never had that. It made me think my entire life has been a waste.” He gazed at Frankie. “What do you see when you see meplay?”

Frankie sat back in her chair, thought for a moment and said, “Myself.”

The answer stunned Alex. “You see you?”

Curling her knees to her chest Frankie rocked forward. “Yes. I see you in me. I feel you in me. I feel your nervousness and anxiety. I feel what you play. It touches me, and I understand it all.” She could tell by Alex’s expression that her words made an impact, and she continued. “Alex, you‘re very talented. You need to start believing in yourself. You have traveled the world to discover music, but you don’t realize music has been inside you the whole time.”

Alex laughed. “Leave it to Frankie Freud to figure me out.”

“I’m going to start charging you,” she teased.

“Well, in that case, I do have a present for you.” said Alex and reached for his bag. “Check this out.” He pulled out the boomerang clappers and slapped them together. “Boomerangs as musical instrument, cool ‘eh?”

Frankie leaped from her seat and grabbed the boomerangs from his hands. “Wow! Are these for me?” she asked excitedly and danced around the kitchen wildly clapping the boomerangs.

Alex tugged the boomerangs from her hands. “No, they’re for me.”

“So I don’t get boomerang clappers,” she said with a pout.

“No, I have something else for you,” he said sternly.

He pulled out two jewelry boxes and rattled them both to hear the contents of what was inside. “Here, this is for you,” he said handing Frankie one of the boxes.

“Who is the other one for?” she asked.

“Sarah,” Alex replied flatly.

Frankie didn’t respond; she suspected the answer. She carefully unwrapped the paper and unfolded the tissue paper to find a beaded design hanging from a safety pin like ribbon. She glanced at Alex curiously.

“It is a Zulu love letter. I made it for you on the plane to Peru, spilled beads all over the cabin floor. Anyway, the bead colors tell the story of love,” explained Alex.

“What does it say?” asked Frankie.

Alex patted his lap and Frankie joined him. He pointed to each bead and explained, “The black beads mean heartache, the turquoise means I lose hope you will marry me, the red means longing and the green is jealousy.”

“Doesn’t sound like such a nice love letter,” said Frankie.

“But you see it’s all surrounded by the white beads that mean hope and the brown beads is like giving new life,” explained Alex. He put his arm around her waist. “The letter as a whole reads, despite all the heartache, impatience, longing and jealousy. I have hope that we will have a new life together.”

The Beckoning Of Beguiling Things by Calinda B
Prequel of the Beckoning series
Can 24 hours really change your life? Marissa Engles is about to find out. When she heads to Las Vegas with her sisters and her best friend, she meets sexy, Thunder from Down Under dancer Chris King and hits the jackpot, in more ways than one.

A secret magical society, The Numina, is planning to influence big change in her through her interplay with King. An evil sorcerer is hell bent on preventing the exchange. A powerful male is watching her from the sidelines, making his agenda known. And King himself has a dark secret that may prove Marissa’s undoing. When all these worlds collide in one night, Marissa must choose the outcome – play it safe and walk away from heartbreak, or ignite a maelstrom of passion, mystery and transformation based on a one night stand? Everything hinges on whether she’s willing to leap without looking…

The Beckoning Of Beautiful Things by Calinda B
Book 1 of the Beckoning series
It's Marissa Engles birthday and she's ready for change - big time. What's she looking for? Sexy, sexy, sexy, is the first thing that comes to mind. Ever since her parents died eleven years ago, completely derailing her life course, Marissa Engles has hidden inside her creativity, using her artistic expression to escape the world. It's her only island of safety from an upbringing filled with lies and deceit. What's she looking for? Sexy, sexy, sexy, is the first thing that comes to mind. Memories of magic and strange, supernatural abilities haunt her. Yearnings of excitement and passion compel her.

Sexy she wants, sexy she gets. When she meets Daniel Navid, sparks fly – literally – from her fingers to his. Daniel awakens her psychic, telepathic abilities, using them to teach her that she's far more than she ever dreamed. As her powers awaken, she’s slowly swept from her safe world into one of suspense and terror, dazzling, electrifying light, and unimaginable sensual pleasures.

With her faithful Doberman by her side, Marissa uses her creative imagination to restore her skills as a Light Rebel. As her metamorphosis continues, a world of both horror and breathtaking radiance is revealed to her. Her ultimate challenge comes through confronting pure evil - the demented sorcerer known as El Demonio de la Muerte - and through the passionate, transformation she experiences with Daniel Navid, the most powerful man alive.

The Beckoning Of Broken Things by Calinda B
Book 2 of the Beckoning series
In The Beckoning of Broken Things, the second book in The Beckoning Series, bestselling author Calinda B explores suspenseful darkness laced with steaming hot passion and metaphysical discovery as Marissa Engles fights her way to her truth. Through her terrifying journey, she encounters demons and devils galore as she navigates the crazy world of Warplandia, a place of shadows and mysteries, and embraces her new reality as a wealthy woman possessing extraordinary abilities living in Brazil.

Is Marissa Engles crazy? Or is she a paranormal Light Rebel who can shape form and manifest things using the electricity buzzing through her veins? Her aunt and sister think "Crazy." The locked mental facility they've put her in thinks "Delusional."

She's so drugged up, she can't tell if they're right. She only knows she's got to get free of the mental hospital. She has to find her missing soul bound lover, Daniel Navid, who commands the darkest of the dark. Only her new pal, Rafe Caldwell, another mental patient "inmate" with more than a few dark secrets of his own, thinks she is what she says she is. And he intends to find out more - lots more. Together they embark on a journey of suspense, intrigue, magic and mayhem that takes them into paranormal worlds Marissa could not have imagined.

Reviewers say: "The steam, the intrigue, the characters, the innovative powers and how they're cosmically much better than most ordinary "powers" that supernatural beings have in paranormal romance novels." 

"...there are some huge plot twists and things that you'd never expect to have happen do. I had tears at the end!!! Will there be more?" 

"Calinda B pulls you right into the believable-fantasy world (which is hard to do), and doesn't hold back any punches."

The Beckoning Of BadAss Things by Calinda B
Book 3 of the Beckoning series
Choices, choices…should Marissa Engles choose the Night Numen, her soul bound deadly lover who walks among demons and commands the darkness, or the Stealth Numen, the trained assassin who slips between her world and the Shadowlands? They’re yummy lovers and alpha males, the baddest of the bad. She shares a potent, psychic, mind to mind connection with the Night Numen. The Stealth Numen makes her feel like a teenager. So they could just as easily kill her in a heartbeat? They both love her, right? These are the thoughts that occupy her waking hours. 

Meanwhile, she’s training to go on a deadly, suspense-filled, dangerous journey in a place where Earth rules don’t apply. She needs to find the three sisters who forged her sword, and retrieve a piece of her soul. No-one has lived to tell about. She’s extremely powerful but still hasn’t attained mastery of her skills. She hopes she’ll be able to pull it together when it counts. 

Just when she thinks she’s made progress, another alpha male drops into her world, challenging her assumptions about love. Will she make the right choice? And what about the ruthless sorcerer who wants to thwart her at every turn? Suspense, mystery, challenges, sizzling encounters and endless opportunities are ahead when Marissa faces The Beckoning of BadAss Things.
