"All the Blues Come Through"

March 21

 

Not all heroes wear capes . . .

In fact, some prefer cat hair-covered leggings and a lab coat. Meet Ryan Bell, the painfully single twenty-eight-year-old botanist credited with creating a miraculous air-purifying flower capable of saving mankind from itself. There’s only one problem . . . only Ryan can grow them.

When Ryan is contacted by a mysterious Greek assembly claiming to have replicated her game-changing scientific feat, she drops everything to meet them. Upon arriving at their isolated utopia, Ryan quickly realizes her hosts are more myth than scientists. They attribute their green thumbs not to years of botany study but rather to the godly blood of being Descendants of the Olympians. And there are some major Greek hunks among the crew.

While Ryan is adamant that her famous flowers were developed by years of research and hard work, the Descendants have a much more viable explanation for her fantastical botanic talents: she is the missing Descendant of Artemis. Moreover, she is the one missing piece in their plan to rescue Zeus and the rest of the exiled Olympians.

Talk about one epic identity crisis. Magical demigod, or not, the fate of civilization—both mortal and godly—now rests on Ryan’s shoulders.

"The Fire She FIghts"

April 18

It’s dangerous to be an extraordinary woman.

Four women firefighters, Ruby, Dana, Brazil and Jessie choose the extraordinary while expecting the danger of the literal fire. None of them anticipate the fire lurking in the dark corners of the firehouse.

How do you protect yourself against someone labeled a hero?

Is it better to secure your own place in a flawed system or fight for something better?

The Fire She Fights brings bold representation to the realities of working in a male-dominated field.

In this compelling addition to women’s fiction, the lives and friendships of female firefighters are illuminated—especially as they support one another in a system meant to keep them out.

"How Did You Find Me?"

May 16

 

How Did You Find Me...After All These Years?  is an engaging story about young love and how life can change in a heartbeat. 

 

In the autumn of 2014, Dennis was at a party that became a turning point. The question "If your physician gave you 60 days to live, who would be one person with whom you would like to talk or have dinner?" was asked to everyone in attendance at the party.

 

Dennis' answer was a surprise, even to himself. Among the party-goers, there were many people who named movie stars and famous political figures. He thought about his answer the next day and made a decision.

 

What happened when he put his answer into the search bar of a social media site  forever changed his life.
