Finding Kyler Synopsis: 
Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.

You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…

Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian. 

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise. 

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin. 

He’s off limits. 

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit. 

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand. 

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.

Loving Kalvin Synopsis: 

A friends-to-lovers second-chance romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Standalone with HEA and no cliffhanger. 

Lana 
I knew it would end in disaster, but I didn’t listen to reason. I didn’t care. Because I loved him so much. 
Kalvin Kennedy ruled my heart. 
Until he destroyed it. 
Shattered it so completely that I became someone else. Someone I loathed. Someone who repeatedly lied to her loved ones.
So, I ran. 
From him. From myself. Desperate to hide my new reality.
But I could only run so far. 
When he reappears in my life, I’m terrified. Unbelievably scared of facing the consequences of my actions.
Never mind that I still love him and want him so badly—there’s too much at stake now.
How can I trust him with the biggest secret of all when he’s likely to rip my world apart again?

Kalvin 
Lana was always far too good for me. Everyone knew it but her. 
I tried to stay away, but I was weak. 
And I hurt her. 
Crushed her until she barely resembled herself. Forced her to follow a path she would never have willingly chosen. 
And then she was gone.
And my world has never felt as empty, as lonely.
She begged me to stay away. Not to find her. To forget she ever existed.
But that’s like asking me to slice my heart in two and toss half aside.
I’ve never believed in fate, but when I rock up to the University of Florida, I’m ready to eat my words.
Because she’s here. Like I hoped she would be. And I’m determined to prove I deserve a second chance.

BOOK BLURB They say there is always a calm before the storm. A time when you think you’re safe, protected from the destruction that you know is going to eventually come. Harper was that calm. And I? I was the motherfucking storm.   As kids we were best friends. She was the light to my darkness. I used to protect her from her bullies, now I’ll become her most feared one.   Seeing her for the first time after three years was like a bucket of ice water being poured on me. It chilled me to the bone, making me irrational, angry.

I’m the all American golden boy.   Having her back in my life is awakening something inside of me. She reminds me of everything good, everything I’ll never have and I refuse to let her stay.   She has to go and the only person dark enough, dirty enough to scare her away is me…   Breaking Harper isn’t as easy… I thought I knew everything, turns out others are just as good at hiding their secrets as I am.   Damaged, dark and falling off the deep end.

Author: Lisa Suzanne
Genre: Rock Star Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Release Date: December 13, 2019



Blurb

I’ve never seen Emily Clarke as anything more than my little sister’s best friend.

One drunken mistake later, she’s my wife.

My first thought is how to get out of this, except our wedding video has gone viral and record sales are skyrocketing. My manager thinks following the newlyweds on the second season of my band’s reality show will keep up the momentum.

I just have to get Emily to agree to faking this marriage for six months, and then we can quietly divorce.

Right?

Wrong.

Nothing is quite that simple when feelings blur the line between a contract and reality.

I ended up with more than just a hangover when I found myself waking up married.

Boston, Massachusetts

Eleanor MacAllister stood outside of her parents’ apothecary and watched as a crowd began to gather around another home of another colonist loyal to King George. She had heard the noise of the group and stepped outside to see what the commotion was. Watching as the British troops lined up in front of Ebenezer Turnball residence and took aim at the mob forming in from of them. Leaning against the door, she stood and observed as her father and mother closed the shop early so they would not become a causality themselves. There was something different about tonight; it felt different; she could feel something in the pit of her stomach that told her they needed to leave and leave now. The crowd size grew as did the number of redcoats that lined up in front of the angry colonists. Boston, with every passing day, became more and more resistant to the crown. 

“Eleanor, come.” Peggy MacAllister motioned to her daughter to follow. Her father George MacAllister took Peggy by the hand attempting to pull the woman inside and through the back door of the shop. 

“Eleanor, come, hurry now.” Peggy MacAllister pled, but Eleanor was resistant and stood her ground. 

“Go, mother, I will be fine. I will stay out of sight. I promise.” 

Eleanor watched as the crowd grew and the danger ever increasing. Maybe it was the danger that excited her, she wasn’t sure, but she did know that this night would to end well. Her family was often the subject of many of these mobs, but on this night, she was a bystander. 

It was only a few months when the mob turned on Eleanor and her family, Many knew of her family’s history or had heard the stories of her grandmother The Witch Brianna MacShane and some in Boston were convinced that Eleanor and her mother Peggy had brought their craft to the Americas. Eleanor would often hear stories of her grandmother, and yes it was true, in a sense, that the MacShane’s were well-known healers from their homeland and that their knowledge had been passed from generation to generation for as long as the sun and moon had risen.

Peggy MacAllister would tell the story of her great grandmother as Eleanor would write the stories down in her book- the book passed down from generation to generation. The Journal contained the stories of the MacShane’s, the Healers of Ulster, County Donegal and of the O’Neill Dynasty. The book was a window into the history of her family. The stories contained within the pages, went from as far back as time itself, a time where myths and legends were born. A time when healers were not persecuted but instead revered for their knowledge, celebrated for their healing abilities and often held in high esteem. Those days long gone, the stories within the book told their stories- stories of pain, of loss, of love, triumph, and sorrow. Each passage contained passages all penned by one scribe- the keeper of the book for each generation. Now, it was Eleanor’s turn; she would scribe for her mother as well as herself just as her mother and grandmother had done for their mothers and grandmothers.
