Fiction Friday

Happy Friday folks. Welcome to another Fiction Friday. Today I have a freebie for you: a romance from Rachael Perez.

Do you wanna know a secret?

I’m a terrible, rotten human being. The thing is, my great grandfather and his best friend had a dream. Then their sons had the same dream. And then their sons….you get the drift.

What was this dream? To strengthen and solidify the bonds of their long lasting friendship with the sanctity of marriage. This wasn’t possible for several generations because neither the Crane family nor the Black family had a female child. Until me. And Alicia. My planned marriage to James Crane was the talk of the Town. Every single female was envious of me. Many would have killed to be in my position. My husband to be was rich, easy on the eyes and a complete gentleman. The best part of this arranged marriage was, James and I were already madly in love.

Whatever could go wrong with such a fairytale love story? Everything.

It turned out that I was also the dumbest person in the world. I was provoked. That’s my only excuse for doing what I did. Now I’m caught in a web of my own making. Instead of uniting our two families just like my great-grandfather wanted, I was on track to turn our families into bitter, feuding enemies.

Next up check out some kickass sci-fi from Dayne Edmonson – GHOST RANGER is book 1 of the Seven Stars Universe series and is available everywhere! So what’s it about? I’ll let its lead character, Rachel tell you.

My name is Rachel. I died and rose again.

I was an ordinary high school girl when a viral plague spread across my planet. Those that died rose again as mindless zombies. Fortunately, science came to the rescue and gave me back my mind. As a conscious zombie, I gained exceptional powers – speed, strength and more. That, plus a secret heritage, changed my life forever.

The outside world didn’t accept my kind, however, and soon I decided to join the military. I trained to become an Army Ranger.

Now, as an elite undead killing machine, I must make a choice. Allegiance to my kind or to the Federation. Choose wrong and I could die…for good.

Another installment in the Seven Stars Universe by Dayne Edmondson, this is a young adult space opera adventure novel set a few years before his space opera novel “Emergence” and featuring a major character from the third book, “Ruin.”

Her bloodline says they should be mortal enemies. Her heart swears otherwise. Will her torn loyalties leave her vulnerable to a rising evil?

Minx’s hunting and fighting skills are legendary. But when adversaries trespass on the royal Fae lands, she’s nervous about her mission to restore the defense wards by slaying a dragon and returning with its powerful hide. And the ferocious warrior grows desperate when neighboring clans demand that she defeat not one, but two of the fearsome beasts in fights to the death.

Angered by the coercive demand, Minx tracks down her first red-scaled monster—only to be stunned when it shifts into a stunning young man. And when her handsome foe claims they share a common adversary, her attraction tempts her toward an unheard-of alliance against a dark new threat.

Will Minx’s quest to save her species drag them into a bloody war?

How to Kill a Dragon is the breathtaking first book in the Heir of Dragons epic fantasy series. If you like fierce heroines, forbidden romance, and magic gone awry, then you’ll love J. A. Culican’s fiery tale.

This strange kingdom, once a land of magic, is plagued by the same dark force that kidnapped the elemental deity of Light. Perils, monsters, phoenixes, and wishing trees abound, and the Witchhunters are trailing close behind.

Her only path to becoming a Lightbringer is also a journey in which she must face her own inner darkness.

While her powers are growing, so too is the danger that threatens not only to sweep this magical land into despair, but also engulf her own nature with it.

Will Lucy find the clues that guide her towards her destiny or will these evil forces spell the end of the Lumenary Prophetiae?

Midnight is the poster child of The Organization.

Or she would be if anyone outside The Organization knew about it.

Ten years ago, The Organization plucked Ilsa Deverell out of the latest in a series of terrible foster homes, trained her up to become the perfect monster assassin, and gave her a code name. Ever since then, they’ve had Midnight’s complete loyalty.

Until now.
