The Dark Wolf (The Heart of Light Trilogy Book 1)

 The Legend Begins....

He is a trained warrior, a man that is almost unstoppable, with abilities beyond that of men or elves. Forged to become the ultimate weapon, Darvir is a man without a past, family, or friends. The only life he has ever known is one of slavery and bloodshed.

Elaine is intelligent, beautiful—a daughter of kings, yet she is an embarrassment and disgrace to her family for going against tradition and wanting to know the truth. Exiled to a remote part of the kingdom, she lies there in seclusion until a deadly menace forces her to flee.

When the paths of these two people cross, they are thrust into a web of peril and sorcery against impossible odds. As Darvir and Elaine both struggle to survive the myriad of dangers before them, an ancient evil is stirring and preparing to unleash a power which none can hope to prevail against.

The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck

Becoming a Christian is the best and worst thing that has ever happened to Sarah Hollenbeck. Best because, well, that's obvious. Worst because, up to this point, she's made her very comfortable living as a well-known, bestselling author of steamy romance novels that would leave the members of her new church blushing. Now Sarah is trying to reconcile her past with the future she's chosen. She's still under contract with her publisher and on the hook with her enormous fan base for the kind of book she's not sure she can write anymore. She's beginning to think that the church might frown on her tithing on royalties from a "scandalous" book. And the fact that she's falling in love with her pastor doesn't make things any easier.
With a powerful voice, penetrating insight, and plenty of wit, Bethany Turner explodes onto the scene with a debut that isn't afraid to deal with the thorny realities of living the Christian life.
Bethany Turner 
has been writing since the second grade, when she won her first writing award for her essay explaining why, if she could have lunch with any person throughout history, she would choose John Stamos. Do-gooders all around her chose Reagan, Thatcher and Gorbachev, but it was Bethany's ode to Uncle Jesse which walked away with the prize. More than 25 years later, her writing is still infused with pop culture and off-the-beaten-track ideas.

Bethany is a born and bred Kentucky girl who relocated to Colorado in 2001, three years after meeting the love of her life in a chat room, back before anyone knew that wasn't always a good idea. Thankfully, it worked out in this case, and she and her husband are the proud parents of two boys. In 2014 Bethany walked away from her career as a bank vice president to step out in faith as a writer. Since then, God has not only opened doors in the publishing world, but has also called her to full-time ministry serving on a church staff. She is an innovative systems administrator for a rural church that is passionate about reaching the unchurched.

Bethany's debut novel for Revell is a romantic comedy which stays true to her pop culture roots, and will be published in October 2017. Her home on the web is www.seebethanywrite.com.

Bethany is proud to say that John Stamos regularly ignores her on social media, even to this very day.

Then the government decides to sell the Liberty Bell and Reed and his friends risk everything to steal it – to take back their history and the liberty that has been stolen from them.
Jennifer Froelich's 
new novel, STEALING LIBERTY, is now available from Clean Reads books. Readers praised her debut novel, Dream of Me, as "well-orchestrated with outstanding imagery."

Jennifer worked for many years as a freelance editor and ghost writer before publishing her own work. She lives in Idaho with her husband, two children and a cat named Katniss.

Mary Lingerfelt

I love a good yarn, and it's my goal as a writer to provide entertaining, uplifting romances that satisfy the reader's desire for a good story. I strive to create genuine, complex characters who are worthy of love and respect, characters who struggle with the issues we all face, yet who triumph over their mistakes and obstacles to find God in a new and meaningful way.

I hope that my books will encourage readers to persevere in adversity, to reach out in faith, and to overcome obstacles in that greatest of all romances -- a love relationship with God.

Amazon Review:
This is a great book about god and love and family and friends.
I couldn't put it down.
I laughed, cried and was so into it as if I was there.
I want more!
Mary is a very good writer.
Thank you Mary.

The Mirror Masters

 Leah Ellis never knew why she was abandoned on the beach at two years old. That is, until her life takes a bizarre turn when she begins seeing images in mirrors she can't explain--cloaked figures using powers that manifest like lightning bolts, or flash-frozen beaches on another world beneath a purple sky.

She practices mirror-gazing, driven to understand these images and their possible connection to her forgotten past, and discovers a wild, boundless power coursing through her veins. Soon, she learns to control what the mirror shows her.
When new neighbors move in, Leah is shocked that they're dead ringers for the people in her visions. According to Brian, with the gorgeous ice-blue eyes, and his father, she is a MirrorMaster--an alien with a gift that lets her travel through mirrors, even to worlds light years away. Her birth parents sent them to take her back to her homeworld of Jantyr.
But Leah's long-lost birth sister activated an ancient device to trigger a cataclysm on Jantyr as a bid to consolidate her own power. Leah must return to Jantyr, master her newfound ability in order to disable the device, and thwart her sister's plans. Otherwise, the destruction will consume the entire galaxy, including Earth and everyone she loves.

AMAZON REVIEW 
I loved the imagination presented in this story and sweet, sweet Leah. Her past is a mystery, but when she finds out just how special she is, it doesn't go to her head. She wholeheartedly wants to help her friends, family and world she has little memory despite terrible odds. I liked how you got to travel to her alien world. The mirrors were lots of fun where she could see bits of history, spy on others, or use them as a portal. This had lots of adventure and a little romance. I found myself wanted to know how it would all end.
