Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She’s sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she’s happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant.

But Darby has rules about dating, ones she’s culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?

Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.

Kylara Vatta is the only daughter in a family full of sons, and her father’s only child to buck tradition by choosing a military career instead of joining the family business. For Ky, it’s no contest: Even running the prestigious Vatta Transport Ltd. shipping concern can’t hold a candle to shipping out as an officer aboard an interstellar cruiser. It’s adventure, not commerce, that stirs her soul. And despite her family’s misgivings, there can be no doubt that a Vatta in the service will prove a valuable asset. But with a single error in judgment, it all comes crumbling down.

Expelled from the Academy in disgrace–and returning home to her humiliated family, a storm of high-profile media coverage, and the gaping void of her own future–Ky is ready to face the inevitable onslaught of anger, disappointment, even pity. But soon after opportunity’s door slams shut, Ky finds herself with a ticket to ride– and a shot at redemption–as captain of a Vatta Transport ship.

It’s a simple assignment: escorting one of the Vatta fleet’s oldest ships on its final voyage . . . to the scrapyard. But keeping it simple has never been Ky’s style. And even though her father has provided a crew of seasoned veterans to baby-sit the fledgling captain on her maiden milk run, they can’t stop Ky from turning the routine mission into a risky venture–in the name of turning a profit for Vatta Transport, of course.

By snapping up a lucrative delivery contract defaulted on by a rival company, and using part of the proceeds to upgrade her condemned vehicle, Ky aims to prove she’s got more going for her than just her family’s famous name. But business will soon have to take a backseat to bravery, when Ky’s change of plans sails her and the crew straight into the middle of a colonial war. For all her commercial savvy, it’s her military training and born-soldier’s instincts that Ky will need to call on in the face of deadly combat, dangerous mercenaries, and violent mutiny. . . .

NY Times, USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Never reap a harvest sown with blood.

150 years ago, in Haven, Kansas, a witch was burned at the stake. This October, in Haven, Kansas, a boy plays a prank on his big sister. Suddenly, crows fill the skies, a female scarecrow plagues the town, and teenagers are dying left and right. Amidst the violence, strange things keep happening.

Lora Townsend discovers a secret room behind the wall of her bedroom, in which a dark and foul Book of Shadows has been hiding for over a century. The book belonged to an ancestor who documented the spells and stories of the strange woman he loved…a woman the town later killed for practicing witchcraft.

There are whispers on the wind. The death toll is rising. And Lora and her family seem to be the center of it all. They must call upon Lora’s small knowledge of magic to help them. Will they be able to take the town back from the witch, and can they manage it without losing their lives in the process?

Despite his usual blunderings and an inability to throw straight, Andy displays genuine courage.

Hobbes: ‘I always knew you’d get ahead one day’

Rise of the Iliri: Books 4-6 – Amazon
by Auryn Hadley
Rating: 4.8
Genre: Fantasy
Price: $0.99 Save $5.00
Make sure price is still $0.99 before clicking “Buy”.

“Love these books!! I stayed up late, let the housework slide and read while I was eating dinner because this author sucks you in and refuses to let go.” -A. Hayes

WAR, HEARTBREAK, MORE WAR…AND UNBREAKABLE DEVOTION.

Auryn Hadley overlays a compelling sci-fi action fantasy with a heart-warming tale of everyday community, the heart-wrenching reality of war—and the loss it mandates. The Terran emperor’s war to eliminate the iliri grinds on, and the Conglomerate of Free Citizens, blinded by prejudice, fails to recognize that the Emperor is intent on destroying the Conglomerate as well. In four years Salryc Luxx has risen from conscripted army private to assassin to queen of all iliri. But the unthinkable occurs, and she must rise above unimaginable grief to lead the liberation of her people.

Always exciting, as well as sexy, and action-packed! Women readers will thrill to the reverse harem idea that pushes the boundaries of epic fantasy in this groundbreaking series that may remind some of Avatar without the scary beasts; or even Game Of Thrones, but happier, with more color. Fans of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern will find Sal’s planet Ogun a thrilling destination for their next fantasy fix.

Each book is a complete novel, not a cliffhanger. And because the iliri have insatiable and exotic sexual instincts, this set may be unsuitable for humans under 18.

INSEPARABLE, Book 4

The intersecting worlds of the iliri, grauori, and men collide when an alliance is declared, and the humans renege. In the midst of offering an olive branch to other races, they seem secretly hellbent on destroying them all—and they begin by putting Sal on trial and disbanding the Black Blades. Auryn Hadley offers up deft commentary on racism between communities—melded with fantastical action-adventure in a world at war, and passionate erotic romance.

True to its title, in Inseparable, on the world of Ogun, it’s the connections between all beings—human and otherwise—that will save or destroy them. It’s Sal’s unbreakable devotion to her tribe that keeps her alive—and the steamy interactions with her mates—old, new, and surprising—that keep the pages turning.

TENACITY, Book 5

A jarring emotional roller coaster, Tenacity tells the age-old tale of pure love amidst a struggle between good and evil—but with a heaping dose of the light-hearted. This one has plenty of laughs. And plenty of heartbreak.

Lieutenant Salryc Luxx and her elite Black Blades push forward to liberate an enslaved nation from the emperor’s reign of terror. But the battle’s not without consequence. Bombarded by the thanks of those she rescued, and the disdain of those whose families she could not save, Sal can’t sleep, she can’t eat … but she cannot stop fighting, either.

The Emperor is losing. He knows Sal’s responsible, and he knows exactly how to destroy her—go after those she loves most.

RESILIENCE, Book 6

Resilience asks how far mankind will go to protect their pride. Because it seems they’ll guard it at the expense of all else. In an epic tale reminiscent of a futuristic Lord of the Rings, it’s the iliri who must decide whether to risk their lives for the ungracious human race.

Salryc Luxx has been summoned to a meeting with Parliament representatives of the Conglomerate. This time, she’s neither slave nor prisoner, but the powerful leader of the iliri. As she struggles to submit to her destiny as their leader, she is inspired by her people’s trust in her and their desperate hope that if it is the iliri and their allies who manage to defeat evil, perhaps humans can learn to respect them.

When she refuses to confide in him, claiming it’s for his own good, he severs the friendship out of wounded pride and a wounded heart.

But when Victoria’s activities are brought to light in the eyes of the magistrate, Phineas must find a way to acquit his friend—and dare he hope, future wife?—of the charges.
