Romance
that is destiny laced, fantasy infused, and dressed in a little night magic.
If he leaves, he can never come
back. But is he dumb enough to get in his car and drive away anyhow?
New York Times bestselling
author, Victoria Danann, begins a sizzling new series about an enclave of
modern day witches who are sexy, philanthropic and living in the Texas Hill
Country. They’re selfless to a fault when it comes to generosity, but when it
comes to the men they choose for themselves, they don’t settle for anything
less than the best.
“Enchanted from the very
first page. I couldn’t put it down!” – Night Owl Reviews 5* TOP PICK
While waiting for what would
probably be his last acting audition ever, the guy standing in line behind
Willem gave him a card with a phone number on it and said, “You’re a good
looking guy. If you’re definitely quitting, try the witches.”
Willem took the card for the sake
of being polite. He planned to throw it away, but didn’t. Crazy as it sounded,
it seemed like the card was bugging him. It even kept him awake when he put it
in the refrigerator.
He called the number, entered the
competition and won. Winning meant getting everything he’d never even dared to
dream about.

Katalina is haunted by graphic nightmares in which she bathes in the blood of violently murdered young girls. Sent to Rome to visit her aunt, she discovers her family’s grim past.

When Katalina forms an unlikely friendship with the dangerously charismatic vampire Toby, she finds herself in a tangle of violent secrets and crossed alliances. 
Now that she is exposed to a world her mom and grandmother fought hard to keep her from- a world brimming with royal vampires, powerful witches, and dangerous hunters-Katalina must choose her fate or lose her heart forever.

Excerpt:
“Have you heard the grim fairy
tale?” A deep voice from behind me echoes around the room.
          I
spin on my heels and Toby is standing in the doorway, the only exit available.
I feel trapped. A sudden sense of danger saturates the darkened room.
“Yes,” I reply.
          His
gaze is fixed on me, eyes glistening in the small amount of light that seeps
through the window.
          “I
have heard she still roams these parts on occasion.” He takes a step through
the door.
          “Did
you follow me?” I step back as he steps forward.
          “Would
it bother you if I said yes?” He pauses for a moment before he stalks toward
me.
          I
stand my ground knowing fully well that I shouldn’t fear him; he has saved me
twice now from other vampires.
          “Would
it bother you?” he repeats.
          I
stare up at him. His face truly resembles a vampire; his skin is translucent in
the dim light and his pupils are dilated.
          “Yes.”
          “Why?”
He leans closer to me.
          “Why?
Because that’s just weird.”
          “What
if I told you that I can’t stop?” he whispers.
          Alarm
bells ring in my head and I look at the door behind him.
          “I
won’t hurt you, Kat. Don’t be afraid.” His voice has turned to velvet.
          “I’m
not afraid.” I stare up at him.
          He
steps closer to me and his proximity is dizzying. I can see the vein in his
neck pulsing and the dark danger in his eyes as he stares at me through black
lashes.
          “Aren’t
you? Your heart rate seems to disagree with you.”
          I
swallow the lump in my throat. “I’m going back down to the festival.” I step
around him, and as I pass, he takes my hand in his. His skin is cool and
smooth. His touch alights me with anticipation. I turn to look up into his
beautiful face, confused as to where this exchange is leading. His carnal gaze
sets me on fire.
Leaning in to whisper in my ear,
he inhales. His voice changes from a purr to something deeper, more dangerous.
“Do you know what it takes for me not to taste you? Your sweet blood sings to
me. I am possessed whenever I am near you. I seek you out and resist the urge
to hunt you, like the predator I am. It is a game I play unbeknownst to you.”
His breath tickles my neck.
          I
close my eyes and hold my breath waiting for something to happen. Wanting
something to happen.

          “You
don’t have to be afraid of me,” Toby whispers against my cheek before I feel a
gush of wind and he is gone.

Day of the Orphan
Dr
Nat Tanoh
Genre: Fiction, General Fiction
Publisher: Acorn
Publication Date: May 25 2018
ISBN: 9781912145560
Book Description:
Like many eighteen-year-old boys,
Saga’s prime concerns are: listening to music his mum calls “hop-hip”, learning
about girls from his suave best mate Ibrahim, and making sure his considerable
tummy is well-fed. In his affluent, liberal and relatively protected suburb
life is pretty good, especially when his mum’s special peanut soup is on the
table.
However, in Africa, childhoods
can be snatched in an instant, especially when you live in a dictatorship. When
his friends and family are dragged into the conflict, he is given no choice.
Chubby Saga becomes an unlikely revolutionary, but these are very dangerous
times. Their violent President Brewman has built their country on fear and even
he, himself, is terrified. Spies, traps and double-dealings lie everywhere. Can
one happy-go-lucky schoolboy really stand up to a murderous regime? How long
can he stay one step ahead of the Zombie soldiers that will do anything to stop
him?
This thought-provoking coming of
age story touches on many of Africa’s biggest problems today.

Excerpt:
After the
quasi-formal welcome, the headmaster and form master hastily stood aside,
moving backwards towards the blackboard so the Deputy Minister could take over
by posing his questions directly to the students as part of his verification
process. The bodyguards also placed themselves at the two front corners of the
classroom behind the Minister, and commenced an inexplicable process of
touching their earpieces with equally inexplicable regularity.
Mr Com, who now
had the floor, asked if anyone would volunteer to go first, and a still very
annoyed Saga impulsively raised his hand before any of the others could. The
New Patriotism issue was indeed a very sore point with Saga. He was still
plagued with guilt that he had not been present to defend his bosom friend,
Ibrahim, when he was beaten up badly by New Patriotism fanatics who happened to
be students in their own school. Subconsciously, it was as though he thus felt
the urge to be the one to face any New Patriotism ‘onslaught’ from officialdom
within their school. As to how he would deflect such an onslaught, he had
absolutely no idea. It was a subconsciously inspired impulsiveness so he simply
had to wing it.
‘Well, well – I
see we have an eager beaver in our midst,’ he smiled at Saga, who did not
return the smile. The headmaster, and the form master, and all the five men and
one woman who made up the Minister’s entourage, however, giggled rather
obsequiously at this sally. They truly understood the meaning of grovelling to
those on high. The Deputy Minister turned and rewarded them all with an openly
condescending smile.
‘Okay mister
serious young man, let’s start. So, tell me, who is your mother under our New
Patriotism?’ Mr Com boomed out his question.
Saga knew the
answer he was to give and did so correctly. ‘My mother is the Great South Party
of President Brewman!’
Mr Com was
pleased. ‘Not bad, not bad,’ he said, and nodded happily towards the
headmaster, who gave an equally satisfied beam in response.
‘And who is your
father?’ Mr Com boomed yet again.
Saga again
answered correctly. ‘My father is the Great Leader of our nation, His Supreme
Excellency and President-For-Life-Until-Further-Notice Field Marshal Brewman.’
Both Messrs Com
and Money now beamed in unison. The entourage and form master were not far
behind in this beaming effort.
‘Well done my
boy, well done.’ Mr Com smiled a vastly complacent smile at Saga.
‘Tell me, my
bright, young friend – so what would you like to be when you grow up?’
This was far
from being a question about future careers such as wanting to be a doctor or
lawyer or pilot. Saga knew he should answer something along the lines of
wanting to grow up to be a dedicated follower of the President or the Party.
However, Saga inhaled and dropped his bombshell. ‘I would like to be an ORPHAN
when I grow up,’ he said with utmost seriousness.
