A slow-burn romance between two outsiders from opposite worlds:

 

He’s the biggest outcast in town…

Chase Collins has never met a horse he didn’t like. Too bad he
can’t say the same for people. In his hometown Lutton, his poor
reputation follows him like a dark shadow. It’s best for everyone if
he sticks to where he belongs. At least on Wild Horse Ranch, he’s safe
from judgment. Then one day a familiar face from 10 years ago shows up out
of the blue.

 

She’s a wanderer who comes and goes…

Samara Grant is a nomad at heart. She doesn’t like staying put for
too long. But when her Grandma Bunny passes away, she has to put her
carefree lifestyle on hold to handle her affairs. She might have spent
childhood summers in Lutton, Texas, but it’s no place to live. She
wants to get in and out as fast as possible. Little does she know life has
other plans.

 

Together, they form an unbreakable bond…

After a series of near-death experiences, Samara decides to take back
control of her life. She asks Chase to teach her how to ride. Neither expect
to find common ground—and a fiery attraction—when Chase agrees.
But their blossoming relationship isn’t celebrated by everyone. The
closer Chase and Samara get, the more an unforeseen enemy seeks to tear them
apart…

About the Author

Wilder Page loves science fiction, cyberpunk, dystopian, and
post-apocalyptic worlds. Especially those with stories where the personal
stakes are high, and the costs of failure are very real. But he also
believes in the triumph of the human spirit, and whether the future will be
grim or bright, well… that’s a choice each of us has to make
for ourselves. When Wilder’s not writing or daydreaming he spends the
rest of his time running, traveling with his wife and best friend, or
playing video games with his two amazing little kiddos!

Kelgan Defthand is used to being top dog at the Academy of Magic where he
is Senior Apprentice Mage. Compared to his peers, he’s faster, more
skillful, and well aware of it, but when he finds himself beset by fearful
voices that come in the night, his confidence is shaken.

Adding to his worries, Kelgan is summoned to the headmaster, Sargal’s
presence; it looks like he’s really in trouble. But to his
bewilderment, he finds he’s being sent on a “mission” with
two very hostile-seeming aristocratic twins, Neroma and Nevander Di
Nerrill.

Upon embarking on this mission with the twins, Kelgan soon realizes the
world outside the cloistered Academy is a bit different than he imagined.
First of all, there seems to be women doing magic! Secondly, he’s not
the only one hearing voices.

Following a strange compulsion, Kelgan and the Di Nerrills find themselves
seeking out the source of the voices, hoping to put an end to it.

The fateful journey tests Kelgan’s underdeveloped skills to the
limit, and could come at an unbearable cost to both to him and his
companions. Once Kelgan accepts the challenge of Magehood, there’s no
going back.

EXCERPT

The Summons (which begins it all)

T

he voices came, night after night. “Too much.” “Too little.” “Too soon.” “Too late.” “Too few.” “Too many.” Then came the laughter, one high and mocking, one low and scornful.

The voices faded with the dawn. An hour of blessed sleep ensued before he rose to begin another round of the day’s obligations. This day, unable to keep his eyelids from drooping shut during his late afternoon tutoring session, he cut short a surprised pupil in the middle of an illusion. Muttering a feeble excuse, he hastened back to his room for an illicit nap. The sleepy chirping of birds settling in for the night startled him awake. He realized the lateness of the evening hour. For a moment he hated them, then he felt ashamed. They happily twittered, glad of every day. So should I be. Am I not doing what I have always wished for? So, should he be, but, of late, was not.

With a groan he rolled over the side of his cot and staggered to the small washstand with its apologetic mirror, Kelgan Defthand, Senior Apprentice Mage. Jokes about “SAMs” abounded among the lower classmen. He surveyed his hollow-eyed reflection with disfavor. It soberly regarded him—a snub nose, a wiry crop of sandy curls, indeterminate hazel eyes. Not exactly impressive. Only his lanky height set him apart from the crowd.

Kelgan had shown so much promise at the beginning. A dangerous promise. It had been so easy. As a latecomer to formal training at the Academy, he was already five years past the usual admission age of fourteen. His talent manifested itself during his toddler stage, but the death of his father kept him, the eldest of five, close to home. Only his mother’s remarriage had freed him.

His step-father, a miller and a kindly man, had insisted that Kelgan follow his heart and talent. He caught up with ease, quickly outstripping the other apprentices. He sailed through the basics of sorcery, cutting his apprenticeship from ten years to six as he rapidly earned the sobriquet of Defthand. Now he was a senior apprentice, just short months from graduation and only a bit older than his peers. During their recent lesson periods, his master, Sargal Wishworker, had begun to notice Kelgan’s slowed reflexes, wandering attention, and lackluster performances at even the simplest spell-casts. Sargal’s comments remained neutral, but his curiosity was obvious. The sudden inability of a senior star-pupil invited further scrutiny.

Kelgan acknowledged that his ego swelled with his ability, pride in his accomplishments earning him many a sour and resentful look from his less able fellows. Was that what was behind this? Could a disgruntled junior have concocted an oh-so-clever and spiteful retribution? No. This was sorcery far too sophisticated for a mere apprentice, even himself. The voices, more than just disembodied whispers, possessed distinct personalities. One, rash, impulsive and malicious, the other older, patient but infinitely cruel. He didn’t doubt that both represented pure evil.

A peremptory knocking at his door brought him back to reality with a start. He strode to the door and threw it open, giving no hint of the unease he felt at the unusual interruption.

“You are summoned to Magister Wishworker’s study,” announced one of the juniors with a smug smile.

A summons of this sort generally meant a dressing-down, and the junior made no effort to conceal his malice. Concealing his emotions, Kelgan acknowledged the summons with a curt nod, threw his cloak around his shoulders and followed the junior.

He paused to lock his door, remembering a past carelessness. The incident began innocently with a request from another junior.

“Senior Apprentice Defthand, can you help me?”

“Of course, Second Year Apprentice Notready,” he had replied, emphasizing the other’s title as he stared down his nose at the junior.

“It’s the increase spell, s-s-sir,” stammered the junior, “I just can’t seem to increase anything more than the tiniest bit.”

His mind gave an almost physical wince, as he recalled what happened next. The junior showed him the desiccated orange pip he wished to turn into a half-grown tree. Kelgan repeated the words of the basic increase mantra at least three times for the seeming dolt of an underclassman, who forgot at least three words every time, until at last Kelgan shouted the words himself. To his horror, the single orange pip became a small orchard, knocking the windows out of the dormitory and punching several nice holes in the ceiling.

Peals of laughter accompanied his performance. Three of his fellow year-mates, hidden in the closet, recited an echo spell every time he repeated the increase cantrip, thus tripling the effect of the spell. Pushing the memory from his mind with effort, he resumed his pose of superiority. Deliberately blocking any glimpse of his room from the curious junior, he stepped out and fastened the door behind him.

A blustery wind assailed them as they left the dormitory. The sky appeared leaden and the clouds hung low, obliterating any trace of the Manlost Mountains, which rose in jagged splendor from the Academy’s perch in the foothills. Below the school, Kelgan glimpsed his home town of Belleran. Beyond that sprawled the Bellerwald Forest and, almost farther than the eye could see, the autarchy of Bellermond. The Academy, itself, possessed no name. None was needed.

The first fat drops began to splash angrily on the pavement by the time they reached the Sorcerers’ lodge. Drawing his own dun-colored cloak more tightly around him, the junior smirked, said, “Here you are,” and turned on his heel.

 About the Author

Recently retired from a job as a university professor, and looking for a
diversion in sunny Southern California, Loran Holt did what any Southern
California does – took up writing, of course. Feeling that sword and
sorcery fitted her personality admirably, she set her sights on that genre.
Nightmasters is the result, and her first work of published fiction, but she
is already the published author of two books on the Silent Film era, with a
third on the way. Recently

USA Today bestselling author Magda Alexander brings you a tale of
heartbreak and love, loss and redemption in this Hollywood meets small town
summer romance.

 

An actor who’s lost his soul

There is nothing studios won’t give for my name in their movie, whether
it’s money, women, or fame. But fame bores me. Money? I have more than
enough. And women? Not interested in the Hollywood types. The one thing I
crave they can’t give me. The redemption of my soul. For you see, I
committed the ultimate sin, one I can’t take back. I can’t find absolution.
No matter how hard I try. Until I land in a small beach town for a summer
production and meet a waitress with a heart of gold.

A down-on-her-luck waitress

The last thing I want is another man in my life. The last one stole every
penny from me. Money I’d been saving to go back to school. If I work double
shifts at the diner, I just might earn enough. But only if I keep my eye on
the ball. Only if I’m not sidelined by distractions.

A summer they won’t forget

But when a stranger stumbles into my diner one stormy night looking for a
meal and a place to stay, I offer the unthinkable–shelter in my home. When
he’s gone in the morning, I think that’s the end. But I’m wrong. Dead
wrong. Because the stranger returns, and this time he wants much more than
my couch. He wants me in his bed.

 

If Tomorrow Ever Comes is a standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA, smexy
times, and lots of pies.

 About the Author

Magda Alexander loves piña coladas and walks in the rain. Okay,
enough of that. Rewind.

Magda loves reading steamy romances which she’s been doing since she
was ten. Ummm, that’s not quite true. Steamy romances did not exist
when she was ten, and if they had, she’s pretty sure her mother would
not have allowed her to read them. She did read the hand-holding,
longing-glances kind, along with her catechism, which got her into trouble
more than once. Let’s just say Mother Superior was not amused.

As soon as sexy romances came into existence, thank you Rosemary Rogers,
she’s been lapping them up. So when it came time to write one, guess
what she wrote. A no-brainer, right?

Magda, a lifelong learner, graduated from the University of Maryland where
she majored in Business Administration (because her family had to eat) and
minored in English (because she needed to dream). She’s lived in
Maryland most of her life and now resides close to the Catoctin Mountains in
a city whose history dates back to colonial times.

Finding out who you are has never been so deadly.

In the ruins of San Francisco California, survivors of an epidemic that
swept the nation have pooled inside the cities, restructuring life as we
know it. Now it’s the strong against the weak; the rich Golden against
the poor Dreg.

The Golden govern everything. Living above the city in four sectors, they
look down on the Dreg slums. Against all odds, the Dreg have become
survivors. Unable to afford proper care, their immune systems have adapted
to protect them against the diseases now infecting the Golden.

Seventeen-year-old Kade Shaw is a privileged Golden. Kade and his family
have the best money can buy, living in the wealthiest area of Sector One. A
bored rich kid, Kade’s tired of his mundane life, and regularly sneaks
out to the skate park and the slums to take risks and feel alive—maybe
even kiss a Dreg girl or two. Until one night at an illegal party,
everything goes horribly wrong.

When the cops accuse Kade of falsifying his Golden status, an offense that
carries a death sentence, he is forced to question his true heritage after
his powerful parents won’t save him. Then, on the eve of his
execution, he’s rescued by a guerilla Dreg group—but why? What
do they want from him? As he lives with them in squalor, trained in raiding
for food, fighting, and how to survive, he slowly gains respect for the Dreg
people, seeing them as more than “other”, confusing the age-old
lines of good and bad. But despite his infatuation with Saya, a beautiful
Dreg girl, Kade still wants his old life back.

In the brewing deadly war between rich and the poor, Kade must make a
choice between fighting for his Golden status or helping the Dregs who saved
his life. Golden or Dreg?

Having fun means breaking the rules. But the risks are greater when
you’re Golden.

In the ruins of San Francisco California, survivors of an epidemic that
swept the nation have pooled inside the cities, restructuring life as we
know it, pitting the rich Golden against the poor Dreg.

Kade Shaw and his best friend Marcus are two very rich, very bored Golden
teenage boys looking to break away from their predetermined lives, if only
for a little while. Building a skate park seems the perfect way to have a
place of their own, somewhere they can have fun and break some rules.

When fellow students begin to fall sick and school is forced to close, Kade
begins to question what he knows as normal. After their Dreg contact makes a
strange request in exchange for the fiberglass they need for the park,
Kade’s unsure if a chance at freedom is worth the risks they are
taking. He knows the risks shouldn’t excite him and he should be
thrilled being a Golden—but something is missing.

Will he ever be satisfied with his life? And how can he take his rightful
place as an elite Golden when all he wants to do is break free?

 About the Author 

D.K. Dailey has a problem: kind of like I see dead people but for writers.
Good thing she fuels that creativity to build worlds and create people who
do what she says-well, most of the time. She often says, if she wasn’t a
writer, she’d be certifiably crazy.

Dailey’s writing journey started as a child when she began writing sci-fi
short stories, a result of watching countless hours of Star Trek on a shared
TV with her parents. With an inborn passion for telling stories, writing
songs and poems, her hobbies erupted into a career path after she penned a
play in college and then her first novel. As a writer of color living in
Northern California being immersed in a tapestry of culture and history has
consistently inspired and helped D.K. Dailey pen numerous books.
