Where Souls Embrace (Jasmine Cottage Book 4)
by Maureen Driscoll
Genre: Historical Romance/Victorian/Gothic
3.99 at time of posting! Kindle Unlimited!
From the author of the Kellington and Emerson Regency romances, comes the fourth book in the Jasmine Cottage series set in the early Victorian era.
Lily Winslow has had a difficult time making ends meet since the death of her parents a few years earlier. She has sought work as a companion, but it has been difficult to find a position with a ten-year-old brother in tow. She finally finds a job in a lovely home, but her employer keeps risking his life in pursuit of conspirators who wish to kill the queen.
Oliver Wadsworth has been a spymaster for well over a decade. Known for being calm under pressure, his entire life is upended when Lily Winslow moves into his home to care for his grandmother. As he tries to protect his family in a race to find the conspirators in a deadly assassination ring, he realizes he has a lot to live for.
WHERE SOULS EMBRACE is the story of finding love and blending a family. It’s very little history with a fair amount of graphic language of a sexual nature. It’s also a great deal of fun.

Safe and assured that they are free from the threat of demons, their love flourishes. Yet, on one horrific night, their lives are shattered by tragedy and betrayal. They learn that no realm is beyond the brutal reach of the Demon King.

And a lost nation must be reclaimed.

Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen: A Novel
by Susan Gregg Gilmore
Genre: Genre Fiction/Coming of Age/Small Town & Rural
1.99 at time of posting!
Sometimes you have to return to the place where you began, to arrive at the place where you belong.
It’s the early 1970s. The town of Ringgold, Georgia, has a population of 1,923, one traffic light, one Dairy Queen, and one Catherine Grace Cline. The daughter of Ringgold’s third-generation Baptist preacher, Catherine Grace is quick-witted, more than a little stubborn, and dying to escape her small-town life.
Every Saturday afternoon, she sits at the Dairy Queen, eating Dilly Bars and plotting her getaway to Atlanta. And when, with the help of a family friend, the dream becomes a reality, she immediately packs her bags, leaving her family and the boy she loves to claim the life she’s always imagined. But before things have even begun to get off the ground in Atlanta, tragedy brings Catherine Grace back home. As a series of extraordinary events alter her perspective–and sweeping changes come to Ringgold itself–Catherine Grace begins to wonder if her place in the world may actually be, against all odds, right where she began.
Intelligent, charming, and utterly readable, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen marks the debut of a talented new literary voice.
