Are some truths worth risking your life for?

What if it meant admitting your nightmares were real—and so were your delusions?

Seventeen year-old Layla Labelle’s hallucinations have driven her to the brink—and she isn’t telling anyone. But when her dreams walk into her life in the form of Max MacLarnon, she is forced to rethink everything she thought she knew. Including whether or not Max actually exists.

Learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put her on a path toward her own destruction. When Layla’s world erupts into a dangerous reality, and every fact of her life forsakes her, she must remember who, and what, she is if she’s going to stay alive.

In a world where nightmares walk the earth, an ancient curse lives in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal. Layla will have to uncover the secret her ancestors are hiding, and make the biggest decision of her life—embrace who she is and follow the one she loves into a world of deadly myth and legend, or turn her back on her history, her destiny, and her love.

In TIED, Book One of The Fire Born Novels, what Layla and Max don’t know could kill them both. And unless they can find a way to stop the curse—the truth might tear them apart forever.

How far would you go … to protect the one you love?

The Kiss Of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1)

Book Beginnings on Friday

Today was the day a thousand dreams would die and a single dream would be born.


Friday 56

I still had some jewels left over from my wedding cloak, so I could have paid my own way as a guest, but that wasn't who I wanted to be anymore.
-Chapter six

Summary:

A princess must find her place in a reborn world.

She flees on her wedding day.

She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor's secret collection.

She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.

She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Like having to marry someone she's never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.

Summary:

When Eden returned back to her world, she believed that Jaxson would be right behind her. She was wrong. Now Eden is back home in her own world while Jaxson is stuck in Faeylon, a world that is as magical as it is treacherous. Eden wants nothing more than to return to Faeylon and find Jaxson, but that is easier said than done. She is locked away, her sanity in question for admitting that she sees fae and magical creatures. Determined to escape and get back to Faeylon, she will have to befriend unlikely people. She is willing to risk everything for Jaxson, but is he the same boy she knew? 
Jaxson paid a price for Eden’s safe return home, and that price was greater than Eden will ever know. Now he battles a dark force that threatens to consume him. Can Eden get back to him before it is too late? And when she finds him, will he be the same person she fell in love with?
Travel to the world of Faeylon where magic is everywhere and the creatures you thought were only in fairytales are very much real, but not as you imagined.
