New Releases: 'Beautiful', 'Set up', 'Past', Ties', 'Blackmailed'

This week, we have FIVE new releases: a fantasy, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, historical romance, and regency. Something for everyone!! Be sure to check them out and leave in the comments which one you got :)


Warrior Beautiful by Wendy Knight
Working with the ex you secretly love to save the souls of the innocent is almost as bad as working with a mighty battle unicorn who would be thrilled to watch you plummet to your death.

Scout is used to pain. Her body has been broken, her heart has been broken, and the only thing keeping her together is her relationship with her younger sister. Lil Bit be-lieves in unicorns and terrifying monsters she calls soul stealers. But unicorns and monsters aren’t real…are they?

When Lil Bit falls prey to the mysterious disease sweeping the country, Scout has two options – believe the doctors who say it’s a pandemic or believe Lil Bit, who says it’s the soul stealers. She chooses her sister and goes looking for the unicorns who are supposed to save them. What she finds aren’t the cute pastel mythical creatures she expects. Battle unicorns are big and tough and full of attitude. Who knew?

Unicorns are real and so are the monsters. Soul stealers are reaping the souls of the innocent, and the unicorns are fighting to stop them. But to save the world, they need the help of humans – the enemy they’re dying to protect. And first to sign up for the fight is the ex-boyfriend Scout’s heart won’t stop loving, no matter how determined she is to hate him.

Contemporary Romance
Blue Ridge Set Up by Kimberly Rae
Not him. Anybody but him.

When Kayla’s great-aunt Lavender, an eccentric romance novelist, invites Kayla to come live with her in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the summer, Kayla accepts. No one will know her there. No one will be disappointed in her failure.

A failure she had kept a secret until Ryan Cummings destroyed her dreams.

What Kayla does not know is that her aunt attends Ryan Cumming’s church and has decided Ryan and Kayla would make wonderful characters for her latest novel. Aunt Lavender hires Ryan to build additions to her property, making sure he will be around as long as Kayla is.

Neither Kayla nor Ryan have any desire to be set up. However, as Kayla battles feelings of worthlessness—started when health problems got her sent home from the mission field—a friendship grows and blossoms, one that may become a reflection of the perfect love, the love that casts out fear, that Kayla has always longed to know.
Romantic Suspense
Past to Die For by Alysia S. Knight
Jana Hamilton starts running for her life the moment she sees her boss murdered and doesn’t stop even after she’s supposed to be safe in the hands of the U.S. Marshals.  When one marshal is killed and another wounded, she’s running again.  She ends up in a small Wyoming town with an honorable sheriff who wants her out of his house.  His nine-year-old son draws her in, while his Aunt plays matchmaker.  Life would be a lot easier if she could remember things like her name and past, especially with a killer closing in. 
Historical Romance
Breaking Ties by Jo Gafford
One hundred and fifteen colonists disappeared from Roanoke Island in 1587. No bodies. No graves. No trail led to their whereabouts. Until now.

On September 3, 2012 British Museum experts announced the discovery a previously unknown fort. Using laser technology to raise a patch on an original Lost Colony map, they pinpointed its location in modern day Bertie County, North Carolina. Only fifty miles inland from where the colonists were last seen, this clue offers the first conclusive proof of survivors.

Experts are now asking why this map – an Elizabethan treasure according to the writings of roy-alty and investors alike – turned up patched like a second-rate document. By whom? And what were they so desperate to hide?

The truth?

Buried beneath layers of intrigue for centuries, a chilling conspiracy has surfaced – one involving murder, blood money, and a betrayal of the fledging English colony so terrifying it can only be revealed in Breaking Ties.
