About the Book
The first time Amelie Fairfield fell in love, she started a war. Now, the part-human, part-fae fashion designer has sworn off romance to focus on her career. But when her name makes headlines in the worst possible way, there’s only one thing she can do to escape scandal—marry a human prince and make everyone forget about the career-killing rumors.
To solidify peace between the humans and fae, Prince Albert must take a fae bride. As sister to the fae queen, Amelie is the perfect candidate. If only she could say the same for the rakish prince she’ll have to marry. At least his devilish charm and good looks keep society fixated on him and not her.
But scandal becomes the least of Amelie’s worries when she embarks upon an engagement tour. She’ll need to convince the aristocracy that her arranged marriage is a true love match…without falling in love. Just when she thinks she has it all under control, the prince reveals a secret that suggests he might not be the man she thought. In fact, he might not be a prince at all…
Can Amelie juggle a world of fashion, unexpected espionage, and dating her not-so-fake fiancé? Or will her closed-off heart prove to be her biggest hurdle yet?

Married by Treachery
By Barbara Kloss
Available October 7
About the Book
Raquel never expected to marry a bear. To be fair, Prince Edom wasn’t actually a bear, but it was impossible to see his face through his mess of wild hair. Not that she needed to see his face. In fact, it was probably better that she didn’t.
Because she was going to kill him.
It had been seven years since Prince Edom had galloped off with her best friend through the magiked veil, and taken her into his magiked kingdom. Seven long years of resolve, of hard work and training, so that Raquel would be ready for this day: the day she would exact vengeance upon Prince Edom, for all the brides he’d stolen.
For all the brides he’d murdered.
Raquel vowed she would be the last, but she wasn’t prepared for what lay on the veil’s other side. It was not the lush and magnificent kingdom from the stories of her youth, and, as it turned out, its prince was not what she’d expected either.
No, Prince Edom was not what she’d expected at all.
Barbara studied biochemistry at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA, and worked for years as a clinical laboratory scientist. She was lured there by mental images of colorful bubbling liquids in glass beakers. She was deceived. Always an avid reader, especially of fantasy, she began drafting her own stories, writing worlds and characters that were never beyond saving.
When she’s not writing, she’s usually reading, trekking through the wilderness, playing the piano, or gaming—though she doesn’t consider herself a gamer. She just happens to like video games. RPGs, specifically. Though now that her kids are getting older, she’s finding she has to share her PS4 more than she would like.
She currently lives in northern California with her gorgeous husband, three kids, and pup. Author of the award-winning Gaia’s Secret Series, and SPFBO4 finalist, The Gods of Men.

About the Book
She will wed a fae sorcerer to save her mother’s life. He will kill her on Starfall night to save himself.
Venya’s mother is dying—and Venya’s only remaining option is to bargain with a feared fae sorcerer, Kassimir the Dark, for a cure. She is desperate enough to do anything—or so she thinks, until Kassimir asks an impossible price.
Kass is no ordinary fae sorcerer. There’s a demon bound to his heart, and the bonds are breaking. When they shatter on Starfall night, the demon will kill him—unless he can find a sacrifice to take his place. When a desperate elf maiden arrives upon his doorstep, an arranged marriage is the perfect ruse to keep her.
Venya finds Kass to be the opposite of the wicked necromancer she expected, and Kassimir cannot help but soften in the face of the shy elven librarian who unlocks his heart. Something forbidden and dangerous blooms between them—but the deadline of Starfall approaches, and Kassimir cannot evade the terrible price the demon has set.
A terrible betrayal looms, and one is doomed to die on Starfall night unless fate itself can be defied by love.

About the Book
She’s a pampered princess.
He’s a dark prince cloaked in secrets.
Their union could unify their kingdoms…or end in ruin.
Though she is heir to the throne, Princess Elena lives a pampered and sheltered life. Carefree and unaware of the dangers surrounding her kingdom, she has never learned how to navigate hardships or be a leader to her people, always allowing her parents to rule.
But when the humans declare war on her kind, Elena is blindsided by a sudden and startling marriage arrangement to none other but the Dark Prince himself. Horrified by this turn of events, Elena promises to do what is necessary, but that doesn’t mean she has to be happy about it.
Though Prince Tynan begrudges the arrangement, he’s willing to do what is necessary for the sake of his kind. Even if it means aligning himself and his kingdom with the prejudiced Light fae and their pampered princess.
So why does his magic stir beneath his skin the moment he sees her? And why is she so drawn to the dark fae she’s supposed to hate?
