Title: Denai Storm
Author: Tiffany Shand
Genre: Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance
After her husband, Jason is kidnapped, Denai witch Cate McCray will stop at nothing to get him back. Along with her team of enforcers, Cate and her allies venture into the country of Setara to find Jason and bring him home.
But going into the heart of the Covenant’s territory comes with its own risks and saving Jason could have dangerous repercussions. Back at home, the team faces a killer lurking on the streets of their city. What kind of new enemy have the Covenant sent after them now, and what price will they all have to pay for going up against them?
With a wave of her hand, Cate sent the Elody crashing to the floor.
“Guards, stop her!” Elody screamed.
Blasts of kinetic energy hurtled towards Cate. She raised her hand, deflecting it away from her as she advanced towards Elody.
“Charlie? Drake? Where are you?” Steve asked. “We’re under attack.”
“We’re kind of busy right now, Dad,” Charlie answered.
“Remember that stunner I gave you for your birthday? Did you bring it?”
She felt in the pocket of her dress. “You said only use it in a dire emergency. Of course, I brought it.”
“Good. Use it on Cate and get the hell out of there.”
Drake yanked Charlie out of the way as a kinetic blast came at them. She felt the burn of invisible energy against her skin. Drake hurled fireballs at the Devas which barely stunned them.
“What about Jason?” Charlie prompted, pulling her stunner out of her dress. “We can’t just leave him here.”
“We—” Steve cried out.
Charlie’s heart stopped for a moment. “Dad? Dad, are you okay?” she asked. “Jalen? Alva? Are you there?” She glanced at Drake when no response came. “You need to go. Go help my dad, I’ll stay here with Cate.”
“Not bloody likely!” Drake protested.
She’s fists clenched. What was it with men and their over protectiveness? Hell, she might be younger but she was still a McCray.
A Deva came at them, about to strike Drake. “No!” Charlie cried. A blast of energy shot out of her hand, sending the Death Dealer crashing across the floor. She looked down at her hand in surprise. “That’s new.” She met Drake’s gaze. “Please, I can’t lose my dad and it looks like I can handle myself against the Devas.”
Drake’s jaw clenched. “I will be right back. If anything happens, I will not be happy with you, little witch.”
Drake shimmered out as Charlie turned her attention back to the battle. More Devas seemed to be appearing, Cate took them out one by one. How long before the blood rage finally consumed her?
Charlie raised her hand but nothing happened. Whatever strange power she had channeled wouldn’t be triggered so easily. She’d panicked before; so she gave into her panic and raised her hands. An invisible whirl of energy sent the Devas crashing away from her aunt and made Charlie’s long brown hair stand on end.
Elody hurled her own power at Cate, sending her staggering back a step. Cate raised her hand again, locking Elody in place.
Charlie grinned. Good, no witch could escape the control of the Grand Mistress, the leader and high priestess of all witches. Another Death Dealer came at her, clutching her by the throat before she could react. She gasped, hands flaying as she tried to fight him off.
Devas were strong; his hand locked around her throat like a vice. Charlie tried to summon her new ability again, nothing happened. Nor could she call out to Cate. Instead, she reached up, grasping the Deva’s throat. Charlie’s Denai medium powers usually only worked on spirits, but still, she reached out to compel him just as she’d seen her aunt do. Her eyes flashed black as she unleashed the power of her own touch on him. The Deva laughed, then his eyes widened as his body exploded in a burst of silver sparks.
Cate clenched her hand into a fist when she set her sight on Vicus. The Deva leader gasped as her power locked him in place.

“Where Dreams Merge (Jasmine Cottage #2)”
Author: Maureen Driscoll
Genre: Historical Romance/Victorian/Gothic
Release Date: July 20, 2017
The second book in the Jasmine Cottage Victorian Romance series follows Grace Moore as she matches wits with writer Carter Beckett, the Earl of Wainwright.
Grace Moore has avidly followed the career of Carter Beckett, who pens pieces for a London newspaper. Never shy to contradict him, she has sent him several letters about his work. What she didn’t expect was for the man himself to visit the country not far from where she lives, even more handsome in real life than his pen and ink picture in the paper.
Carter Beckett is restless. He is attempting to write a novel, but the words simply will not come. However, once he meets the lady who has been his most outspoken critic, he realizes he has finally found his muse. Once the two begin writing letters to each other through alter egos, love of the written word turns into the love of a lifetime.
WHERE DREAMS MERGE is the story of two people reaching beyond their day-to-day lives to find love. This book contains explicit language and graphic sexual scenes. If you don’t like sex with your books, this one isn’t for you, though the author hopes all readers end up with their soul’s mate.
