Isabel thought her life was on track – she was doing well in college, moving quickly toward her future, and deciding who she wanted to be. Best of all, she’d reunited with Tom, the swim coach she had a secret affair with in high school. But it doesn’t take long for her history – and his – to start catching up with them. When Isabel goes back to her college life, after spending a blissful summer reuniting with Tom, things take a dangerous turn. Isabel gets swept up in a relationship with a dark, mysterious professor, with whom she begins a covert love affair that could ruin everything she has rebuilt with Tom. Worse, she starts to hear rumors from friends back home – rumors about a teacher having affairs with students. And Tom seems to be at the center of the controversy. Will Isabel’s instincts about what Tom’s been up to during their time apart drive her farther away, or will she forgo her new romance to run to Tom’s defense?

Tainted Love is Book Two of the Sweetest Taboo Series, a controversial and edgy contemporary YA romance series appropriate for readers sixteen and over. Sweetest Taboo, Book One of the series, was released on October 1, 2012. Book Three, Time After Time, is scheduled to be released on December 3, 2013.

YA Fantasy – Through the Portal

Through the PortalThrough The Portal
By Justin Dennis
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1466311138
Pages: 248
Genre: YA Fantasy

When Jem and Oliver accidentally fall through a portal to another world just before their first year of high school, they quickly discover that all is not well here. The first person they meet, a creepy old man named Atychis, almost gets them killed by a ferocious, fire-breathing dragon. They’re only narrowly saved when Sierra, a shy farm girl from a nearby town, uses illegal magic to help them escape. Allowed to stay with her family while they try to figure out a way back home, Jem and Oliver begin to learn of magic and the Regime that is oppressing it.

It isn’t until the Regime kills a woman that the three kids realize they have to do something to stop the Regime from taking over completely. After being framed for a crime they didn’t commit and banished from the town, Jem, Oliver, and Sierra take off on an adventure across this strange world in an attempt to defeat the Regime. New creatures and new kinds of magic are around every corner, but so are dangers that could have them wishing they were back safe at home.

Through the Portal is approximately 104,000 words and is the first in a trilogy.

One of the unique characteristics within Through the Portal is the use of sylph, a physical manifestation of magic that allows the user to manipulate it however they need while exerting minimal energy. Sylph makes transportation available through sylphcycles and sylphquads, and is just one of the exciting new concepts explored in this magical and complex world.

YA Urban Fantasy – The Darkest Lie

The Darkest LieThe Darkest Lie
By Angela Day
Publisher: Onyx House
ISBN: 978-0615724959
Published: November 2012
Pages: 470
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

He’s electrocuted two grown men. He’s knocked down a seven story building. He’s screamed defiance at the sky in the company of a jungle panther and a red demon, and done anything he needed to survive. But the thing Thane fears most is his sophomore chemistry class.

At 15, all Thane wanted was to be invisible for three more years. His one cardinal rule was, “If they don’t see you they won’t hurt you.” And then one thing changed, and that was the catalyst for his chemistry teacher framing him for attempted murder, opening a door that led halfway around the world, getting drugged, getting shot, being imprisoned, getting shot again, and finding out that there’s a hole ripped in the fabric of our reality where magic is seeping in.

That one thing was, of course, a pretty girl.

Now Thane is fighting to keep his humanity and questioning his sanity while everything he’s ever believed is being proven wrong. He isn’t invisible and he isn’t powerless and he can hear the song that holds the universe together, but knowing that science and magic are two sides of the same thing isn’t going to save him. The most powerful magic and the most advanced technology will fail and worlds will fall unless Thane can do one thing. He has to believe in a power that doesn’t come from magic or machine, and let go of the darkest lie he’s ever been told.

ISBN: 978-0985904500
Published: December 2012
Pages: 472
Genre: Young Adult, Coming of Age, Historical Fiction

Living today as if tomorrow never comes…

After surviving an attempted suicide, Tom Jones, a shy Christian adolescent, learns to use writing in his diary as a means of communicating with himself as his family settles in on a new life in West Texas. High school football in Texas seems to be the states’ unofficial religion, yet it’s the emerging of television, “the new God,” that starts to have a stronghold in shaping Tom’s newly found pop culture world of the 1970’s.

“The Game” begins when star quarterback Reggie Thomas moves in across the street and takes Tom under his wing, tutoring Tom on the road to the end of innocence. Will the duo score on a last
ditch drive to escape with their souls intact, or will they find out how easy it is to get lost in the forbidding world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll?

Just as the Stone Age and Ice Age were both lost to history, Tom’s diary journals how the Teen Age somehow got lost in history as this page-turner continues to unfold masterfully, sure to leave readers laughing at the anecdotes on an unforgettable journey down memory lane.
