$0.99 on 9/18/2019 – Florette by Ann Sepino

“She didn't want to find love… until he found her.”

Florette doesn't believe in love, especially the kind that involves magical beings with butterfly wings on their backs. She is content to sit in her cottage and finish her clients' ballgowns in time for the Fall Gatherings. But a stranger comes knocking on her door, and suddenly her convictions about romance and magic start to shatter.

Blayze knows that because of an existing treaty, he can attend a run of the Fall Gatherings only once, and woo only one woman during that time. But instead of choosing a bride there, he finds himself falling for a reluctant seamstress outside of Flutterfae Grove. However, he soon learns that loving Florette is not so easy, especially when he realizes that her convictions are tied to a cruel past.

Before the Fall Gatherings end or her past comes back to hurt her, Blayze must convince Florette that their love is real, and she must find the courage to believe him.

In this standalone novel by Ann Sepino, experience a fairy tale set in the fictional village of Harowe, where an ordinary seamstress might just learn to believe in the magic of love.

$FREE on 6/20/2019 – Kissing Magic by Day Leitao

Kiss him. Don't fall in love.

Break a spell with a kiss. Karina has heard and seen enough weird stuff for this request to sound legit.

At 16, Karina has a shot at adventure—and an odd first kiss—when she's called to Whyland, a kingdom in another dimension, to save a guy she barely knows. Why her? No clue, but she's happy to help, and kissing Sian isn't torture, even if he isn't to be trusted. Karina's smart enough not to fall in love—or at least to tell herself not to.

Once in Whyland, she realizes that risking a broken heart is the smallest of her problems. Karina will need to stand between and ancient darkness and the kingdom. But what hope does she have against mysterious powers when she can't even control her own heart?

If you like fantasy and adventure with romance and some humor, give Kissing Magic a try. This novel is recommended for readers 13 and older. This is book 2 in Portals to Whyland series but you can jump straight into it without having read book 1.

$0.99 on 2/27/2019 – Current Affair by Ann Sepino

DARDAGAT had it all. He was a knight of the kingdom of Okeanos, a well-respected champion of King Ponteus, a friend of the said king’s niece and a fiancé to the kingdom’s princess. But when his betrothed unexpectedly falls in love with and leaves the waters for a land-dweller, Dardagat’s hope of ever becoming her groom sinks to the bottom of the sea.

CORDELIA bore it all. She was a Sea Witch, shunned by the other sea-dwellers not only for her looks or her breed’s nomadic lifestyle, but also for the danger she and her magic posed. But when a rare sickness spreads through the kingdom of Okeanos, she is persuaded to help the very creatures that hate her.

Now the two are stuck with each other, with Cordelia acting as the kingdom’s healer and Dardagat posing as her overseer. To make matters worse, Cordelia has been keeping secrets that the knight must never get wind of. But with each passing day, their heated debates turn into strong admiration – and an even stronger attraction – for each other.

Now the two most stubborn residents of the watery deep are going to find out that love can lurk beneath even the worst of deceits and the stormiest of seas.

$FREE on 10/25/2018 – The Golden Key by Cathleen Townsend

By 1918, Europe had spent over four years embroiled in the Great War. This terrible war to end all wars had consumed an endless stream of men—all shot, gassed, or obliterated by artillery in the trenches. Dieter, a German farmer, has no idea how his sons met their fate. He knows only that they are dead, and his wife, Gerda, refuses to accept it.

After he brings home a golden bird, still miraculously alive after being rescued from an iron box, Gerda declares she will go find the truth about their third son, Karl, whose body was never found. In a desperate attempt to keep his wife home, Dieter volunteers to search instead.

The bird guides Dieter safely to the front, but once they reach the battleground, they find only chaos. Exploding shells pepper the muddy ground as far as the eye can see. The fighting is so savage and constant that many bodies are never recovered for burial.

As his chances of finding his son’s grave tumble from slim to none, Dieter becomes trapped on the battlefield. It seems likely he will share his sons’ fate.

But the bird has other plans…

The Golden Key, by Cathleen Townsend, is a historical novelette that blends the harsh realities of war with a touch of magic and a heaping dose of heart.
Stacie Eirich

Townsend’s novelette The Golden Key starts off with the feel of a German folktale as Dieter finds a magical golden bird buried in a chest at the base of a tree. The plot’s tension builds at a steady pace…a quick read with plenty of action and a warm message.
