Romance: THE LADY THE DUKE AND THE GENTLEMAN

Miss Antoinette Byrd feels ready to marry. As her friends and cousins find their happily every afters, she dreams of the day her own handsome husband will meet her at the end of the aisle. Finally, her parents, who have been hesitant due to her immaturity and rebelliousness, agree to let her see some suitors.

Antoinette is immediately won over by Duke Alexander Godwin, a man who has it all. He is handsome, incredibly wealthy, a Duke, and one of the bravest, wittiest, most charming men she has ever met. Every minute by his side feels like she is being swept up in a fairytale romance about princes and princesses.

And yet, her parents keep her options open with other suitors. Antoinette is at first unsure why they are not locking down Duke Godwin as soon as possible, but as time goes by she begins to realize that, however, dreamy Duke Godwin is, they have very little real chemistry. In fact, of all her suitors, one seems to shine brighter than the rest… But is he the right man for her?

In the midst of Christmas celebrations, the return and near loss of a dear childhood friend, a threat to her family’s wealth, and her sister’s marriage hitting a seemingly insurmountable hurdle, Antoinette feels pressured to make her choice. And deep down, she knows that the choice she most wants to make is one that would break her parents’ hearts. But choosing the wrong suitor would break hers.

Fantasy: KATRINA HATES THE DEAD

What would you do during the Apocalypse? How would you survive?

Those are the questions that have plagued Katrina for years. All the good boys and girls were raptured up to Heaven, leaving the rest of humanity to ask a single, solitary question: “Why not me?”

Hellspawn rose from Hell and rampaged across the world, eviscerating all they came across. It was bedlam, Hell on Earth. There was nothing anybody could do to stop it.

Then the Hellspawn got bored and settled for a quiet life in the suburbs. They squatted in the homes of the people they once mercilessly murdered.

And that’s where Katrina Hates the Dead starts. Humanity survived the rampaging demons and now has to work and live alongside them. They steal all the good jobs, and leave humanity cowering is squalor.

Katrina is a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end. She fights minotaurs, Cerebus dogs, zombies, demons, and more, as she fights across the plains of oblivion.

But the book also explored the deep pain and angst of a society that was forsaken by god, decimated by Satan, and left to live in hunger.

And yet humanity is strong. They persist. But everything has a breaking point, and after watching friend after friend die at the unforgiving and unjust hands of fate, Katrina’s had enough and sets out to face off with the Devil to earn back her old life.
