No Way Back (Mia’s Way #1)
By Chloe Adams
Sometimes bad things happen to beautiful people.
The wealthy daughter of a high-ranking politician, seventeen year old Mia Abbott-Renou has everything: designer clothes, wealth, spring breaks in Monte Carlo. She lives blissfully unaware of her family’s secrets, until the night she is raped by the son of her father’s greatest political ally.
Her father forbids her from going to the police and threatens to throw her out if she does. It’s a critical election year, one that his party might lose, if the public sours on his doting father image when they realize his daughter is an underage lush and party girl. He can’t risk splintering the party in a nasty court battle that’s certain to draw way too much press, even if that means sacrificing his daughter.
Mia’s world is shattered twice, once by the men who hurt her, and once by the betrayal of her family. She does what her father says. But the rapists strike again and beat their next victim near death.
With the help of her best friend and a couple of unlikely allies, Mia must decide: does she risk losing everything to do what’s right? Or does she turn her back on the truth and preserve the family name?
What’s privileged girl to do, when her perfect little world isn't so perfect anymore?
Me Since You
By Laura Wiess
Expected Publication Sept 2013
“Laura Wiess’s masterful prose kept me turning the pages. This is the first book in a very long time that made me say, ‘Wish I’d written this’” (Ellen Hopkins, author of Crank, onSuch a Pretty Girl).
Sixteen-year-old Rowan is still reeling from her father’s suicide four months ago, after he failed to stop a man from leaping off an overpass to his death. The only witness is Eli, a teenaged boy wrapped deep in mourning for his own father, killed in action in Afghanistan. When Rowan and Eli meet, they recognize kindred spirits, and begin to navigate grief and its aftermath together.
Rowan can’t understand how her father could choose to leave her, and acts out, pushing away friends and taking risks with her safety. Rowan’s mother, wracked with her own guilt and sorrow over failing to save her husband, stops going to work and collects stray cats for comfort. Grief, fractured and unpredictable, rules their lives now. Rowan is lost—and sinking. But Eli represents a lifeline for Rowan, and as they struggle to make sense of what’s gone and what is left behind, they begin to fall in love. Me Since You is Laura Wiess at her finest—a beautiful, gripping and painfully honest examination of adolescence.

Royce St. John is a Special Operations Team Leader for the Secret Council of Elders. "The Council" consists of both mortal and immortal members. Their primary function; to make sure humans continue to believe Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, and other mythical beings were just that, a myth.
Royce’s mission - to recover a set of missing coins. The coins originally belonged to Merlin, who "spelled" each of them centuries ago. Stolen by rogue warlock, they have fallen into circulation among the general population. Royce had successfully recovered the first coin in the set, when things went terribly wrong.
Damn Witches! They boxed him up like last year's Christmas decorations and dumped the spelled crate into Charleston Harbor. When Royce regains consciousness, he is trapped in a box, pissed, and two years behind schedule! He fumes as he waits, not so patiently, for the moon to trigger the crate's unlocking sequence. He only hopes his body is fully restored by then, and that all of his parts are located in their proper places!
Becki’s world is about to change in ways she never dreamed possible. Her crate holds secrets she may not be able to handle, and a man who steals her heart the first moment she sees him.... walking naked through her living room!
