Excerpt:

Nuzzling into her neck, he kissed her soft skin, and felt her heart beat faster. "Mmm, you smell earthy. I want to talk to you about something. Roberto was here earlier, as you well know. He told me some interesting information. Quite impressive, I might add. It explains to me why the hell you are so tired."
She looked at him with concern. "Is something wrong? Do you think I spent too much? Shade, I’ve tried to be so careful with our finances."
He shook his head and laughed. "Bel, when in the hell are you going to realize, I have more damn money than you can ever spend. But now, it seems you have contributed to that a great deal. Do you have any idea how much money your projects have earned this year?”
She shook her head. "Well, not an exact figure, no. Your people handle the negotiations, selling the plants for their oils. I know the crops have done well.

I know the visits to the winery are up and people like walking the grounds and picking the lavender and the sunflowers. They’re charged for what they pick. Both inns are doing well. Reynaldo says they have to turn away four out of every five calls because they’re booked. When I ask Roberto about the money, he says things are fine. He never shares specifics with me."

Death is no match for love...

Nobody knows what happens after death, except Amber Deliah Matthews.

Just before her seventeenth birthday, Amber loses her battle with cancer and is reborn into a less than perfect life. She remembers everything that led up to this moment and now finds herself left with only an unloving family and Oliver, a friend, and the only person who ever believed her story.

Amber has never wanted anything more than to be whisked back to the life she once loved. So, when Amber and Oliver are given the chance to venture back to Amber's first family, they embark on the journey of a lifetime.

Equal parts moving and achingly poignant, She Remembers is a captivating story about love, loss, and the threads that bind us all together.

Excerpt:

“Amber? Amb?” Oliver says, snapping me out of my daze. I blink as the images scatter away.
“Sorry,” I say softly. “What were you saying?”
Oliver takes on a wistful smile. He knows I was having a flashback; they happen so often.
“No worries. You said you wanted to go home. We have the money. We’re off of school because of this stupid suspension and literally right after our two weeks are up, we have April break. It’s the perfect time. You can go home. What do you say?”
My heart pounds in my chest when he says ‘home’. The reality of the situation dawns on me. We’re going back to Florida. We’re going to see my family. For the first time in fifteen years, I’ll see Mom. I’ll see Dad. I’ll see Micah. I’ll see Riley. Jack. Ellie. My friends. Shawn. I’ll be myself again.
But as much as I want to book a flight this very minute, I can’t. Today doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to Amber.

READ MORE

It belongs to her memory, it belongs to her legacy.
“Tomorrow. Tomorrow we book a flight.”
“Okay,” he answers.
I stand and flatten my skirt. “Come on, let’s go light her candle.”

Reviews:STC, teacher/school librarian on Amazon wrote:

She Remembers is a new novel by Ariana Glaser that will appeal to readers of young adult fiction. It is a unique story with an interesting twist-- a girl who dies of cancer at the age of 16 is reincarnated, but remembers every detail of her previous life. Amber’s desire to return to that former life is what drives her to take a bold step with only her best friend Oliver by her side.

With characters that make you think and a creative storyline, She Remembers demonstrates that Glaser is a promising young author. It will be interesting to follow her writing as she develops her craft.

C.O.M. on Amazon wrote:

This amazing young author writes a beautiful story with so many twists and turns (you will want to keep reading to find out what comes next) about life, death, family, friendships, feelings, and reincarnation. Whatever your feelings about reincarnation may be, it makes you contemplate your life here on Earth, your relationships, your friendships, and the importance of family (to name a few). It is a must-read that will touch your soul and help you to see the world in a different way that is uplifting and positive.

Jacqueline Kelly on Amazon wrote:

This novel is wonderful if you're looking for a quick and interesting story! The fourteen-year-old author is wise beyond her years, and she uses the concept of reincarnation to explore death in a way that makes it seem almost beautiful. Taking you through various twists and turns, She Remembers will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Sherman Lancaster has lived 119 years. The only thing he fears is living 119 more.

Sherman wields a divine sword named DeeDee and delivers God’s justice to those who cross the line. Sherman’s two great-grandsons are coming to stay with him. The boys believe it’s because their mother can’t afford daycare. Sherman knows the truth—one of the boys will become his apprentice.

Sherman has sent legions of demons back to hell. He’s killed enough men to decimate a small country—but the odds are stacked against him this time. Before an apprentice can be named, Sherman must confront an enemy who threatens to unravel everything and doom him to another 119 years behind the sword.
He’s old and he’s tired.

Sherman Lancaster lives by a simple code to which there are no exceptions: The Guilty must pay.

Excerpt:

The boys were wide-eyed and fully convinced they were dreaming. Whether it was a nightmare or a fantasy hadn’t been decided. They wanted to say something, but their vocabulary failed them. Everything they knew about the world changed. Their one constant was Sherman. They turned to him for comfort but found none.
Their great-grandpa was no longer the old man they knew. In the warmth of the Clearing, Sherman pulled off his coat and toboggan. Wearing only boots, jeans, and a tee-shirt, Sherman resembled their great-grandpa, but it was a slight resemblance only. His bald head was gone. In its place was a brown, floppy mop that touched his ears and curled. His skin was healthy, tight, and brown, and his ugly, black and sinister-crimson age spots vanished as if erased by God’s time-eraser. He was changed, new, and somehow fresh.
Sherman was young again, looked as young as Piper and Sebastian’s mama and daddy.

READ MORE

Muscles ran like steel cables through his chest and arms, and his leg muscles bulged and threatened to shred his jeans Hulk-style each time he stepped. He looked taller, and a ruler would have proven it a fact. He stood three inches taller and weighed a couple hundred pounds more. His ears and nose were again proportionate to his head.
This wasn’t Sherman’s young body. It was his spirit body, a term that would’ve meant nothing to Piper and Sebastian if Sherman had told them, so he didn’t. He let them think he was young again.
The zigzag doorway zipped itself shut behind them, and the Clearing came to life.

Excerpt:

Max informed Lein Shade's mate was on her way here, and he’d like for her to make herself scarce. Lein looked at him warily.

"Do not be deceived, Master."

Max laughed. “It seems Shade hasn’t been seen or heard from since his visit here and I need to console his lonely mate."

Lein shook her head. "Beware of a trap."

Max stroked her face. “She was mortal, only recently turned. He keeps her locked away. I think I can handle it."

Lein looked at him with skepticism. "Never underestimate the power of an angry woman."

Max smirked. "She’s not angry, Lein, she’s sad and heartbroken. I've got this under control. If Shade’s gone, the estate is vulnerable. I need to see what she knows."

Lein would do as she was told, bowed to him, and left, but she had her doubts.

Reviews:Kindle Customer on Amazon wrote:

First of all, The Medici Queen series, is absolute book crack. Once you start, you can not, and do not want it to end. This story is highly erotic, full of action, and romance. I've laughed and cried with all three books. this one hurt more though.

MJ on Amazon wrote:

The Medici Queen is full of spectacular scenes and excitement! Once you start this book it will be incredibly hard to put it down. It’s chalk full of details on everything from love, hate, jealousy, deceit, and old endings to new beginnings ( I don’t want to give anything away). This paranormal is not your typical romance story. No, it’s filled with mystery that you’ll want to solve all the way to the end. A Top notch book that will curl your toes!

A large sum of money. A skilled Private Investigator. A missing book. How could any of these elements ruin one's life? Quite easily, when the work follows you home, threatens to destroy all you know and love,and promises to unleash forces beyond humanity's comprehension upon the world. James Riley is a man with secrets; some seemingly harmless, but when the doctors start forcing the memories to unchain, reality and the truth have only one conclusion... One shattered night.

Excerpt:

He was making for the door. At first, Shamus thought it was Father Malone. But why would the priest be running down the aisle towards the exit?

Shamus called after him, “Malone? Malone, it's me, Shamus. What are you doing father?” The man stopped briefly before entering the narthex. He was tall and heavyset, unlike Malone.

Shamus shouted. “Hey, you! Stop right there. Whatever you're doing. Stop!” But the man was gone before he had finished speaking. Shamus gave chase, but by the time he got into the narthex, the main doors were wide open, and the man was long gone. Shamus ran outside into the wind and rain. But the only thing he saw was two ravens leaving their perches in an old oak tree, at the far end of the pathway. They seemed to be heading north, right into the heart of the storm.

READ MORE

Disheartened, Shamus went back inside and searched the building for any sign of Malone. But he was nowhere to be seen. However, what he found sent shivers down his spine.

The stone altar, which was not to be touched, had been broken in half, its religious paraphernalia cast to the floor and scattered about. On the inside of the broken altar was an empty cavity, large enough to fit a book or at least part of one. The church was nearly 300 years old, so whoever placed “whatever” inside the alter had done so a long time ago.

Humans have always been obsessed with aging and death. Throughout history, the quest for a way to remain forever young has consumed mankind. What if two men stumbled upon a way to ensure eternal youth? What if it changes their lives, not only for the better, but in ways they never could have imagined?

Immortal is a story filled with adventure, mystery, and thrilling twists. Follow these men as they stumble upon not only their greatest discovery, but possibly their ultimate undoing.

Excerpt:

Daniel woke to Tim’s pleading.
“Daniel are you awake? I keep hearing footsteps in the hallway.”
Daniel glanced at the bed-side clock. “It’s 3:00. Go back to sleep.”
“No, seriously, go check it out.”
“Why me?”
“Wait, listen.”
Daniel got up, walked to the door and put his ear against the wood. What he heard sent chills down his spine. Slow, deliberate footsteps coming from the end of the hallway. Too slow to be an actual person. Too deliberate to be the gait of someone out for a late stroll.
“Holy shit, dude.”
“What the fuck is it? Go check.”
“Why me, you coward?”
“You brought us here. It was your idea. You need to go check it out.”
“Why don’t we just go back to sleep? The steps obviously aren’t meant to do us any harm.”
“How do we know that?”
“Because they haven’t tried to get into our room yet.”
“Yet? Maybe you can accept yet.

You seem to like ghosts. I on the other hand, despise the whole concept.”
Suddenly the steps ceased exactly in front of their door.
“Daniel, what the fuck!” Tim whispered.
Daniel reached for the doorknob.
“Wait, don’t,” Tim whispered hoarsely.
Daniel put a finger up towards his frightened friend. Slowly he turned the knob and eased the door open. Tim pulled the covers over his head. Daniel stepped into the hall.

A Unique and Thrilling Read.

Immortal is unlike any novel I’ve previously read. The author seamlessly combines mystery, suspense, and philosophy into a superb tale about life, death, and everything in between. I highly recommend this novel.

on Amazon:

Can we reverse the aging process by thoughts and actions?

Very impressive novel, never mind first novel! David tells a well-rounded story and makes his characters real and compelling. I like the shorter chapters as it kept me wanting to keep turning the pages and see what happened next. Add in two major surprises and David took me for quite a ride. Looking forward to what comes next!!

A wolf without a mate. A witch who doesn’t date.

Kingsley gave up on meeting his fated one until Eva walked into his life and threw him a curveball—a puzzling dilemma he doesn’t know how to resolve. Her cheery laughter thrills him, her generous curves devour him, and her scent…dear God, her scent undoes him.

Eva had given up on men, but there is something about Kingsley she can’t resist. He is persistent, driven, affectionate, and different from the men in her past. But Eva is dangerous… Still, the Artic Wolf won’t take no for an answer, but witches and wolves don’t mix...

Excerpt:

Slapping his hands over his quivering nose, threatening to elongate into a full-fledged snout, he tried to hide the effect of the delicious siren that caused transformation to his physical features.  Her essence wreaked havoc within him, stirring up the beast inside and threatened his true self to break free.  He breathed out a long exhale, inhaled slowly, and then blew out the air he withheld, once again until he couldn’t take anymore.  Lifting from his seated position, he forced his legs to move toward the back of the church instead of what he wanted to do, which was slide over three chairs to sit next to the delicious morsel he itched to savor.  One foot in front of the other he willed himself forward, pacing away from her, though his heart balked at his escape and his taut nerves protested each laborious step.  He caught her gaze following him as he stalked through the endless hallway.

  Ignoring his rational mind urging him to ignore her, he glanced back at her to find her shy away from him with a partial smile.

Gods of thunder.  Her smile could bring warriors to their knees!

The rogue hesitated, did not answer and Shade watched as the warriors circled, ready for the kill. Alec nodded and this fucker belonged to them. The rogue’s fear spiked as he was surrounded, and he spat on Alec and said, “Angel.”

Alec’s beast emerged as the young rogue spit at him. Eyes red and fangs bared, he screamed to the heavens, “There is no master named Angel. Kill him!” He watched as a frenzy of warriors tore into him, ripping his limbs free, tearing his head from his body, and leaving nothing recognizable when they were done. Angel. Who the fuck was Angel? And what hell was about to rain down on us now?

Shade watched as the blood spattered, and he turned his back and walked outside for a smoke. He was done for the night and ready to get the hell home to a shower and his woman.

Alec saw the warriors ripping the rogue to shreds and followed Shade outside to find him leaning against the wall, smoking a cigarette. “I know every vampire master on every continent. There is no master named Angel. Does Angel mean anything to you?”

Shade scuffed his heavy boots against the pavement, “Nope. And if you don’t know…” He turned his head to look at Alec, Shade’s bloodied hair and face in such a contrast to Alec’s. “…then we got more hell than either of us could imagine, brother.”

The world is ever-changing. Most men change with it, other men refuse to adjust, and a few men move the world with them.

Whether in primitive days or the ends of civilization, these poor fools find themselves in the worst straits their lifetime had to offer. A gardener. A political writer. A prisoner. A slave. A detective. They’ve all made their beds in the world, but some aren’t ready to lie in them just yet.

Some will drag the world down with them if they can.

Excerpt:

The boy with the green eyes stomps over, Aaron at his heels. “What in the hell is going on?” the boy barks. I note how his rifle is still slung across his back–he must not see us as a threat–but I’m not waiting around to find out for sure. I stand and grip Taylor’s arm again, this time harder. She tries to tear it away, but I’m latched on. She grunts in frustration. “Stop!” I yell at the boy, my shrill voice echoing through the woods. Amazingly, he listens. “I’m two seconds away from teleporting us out of here if you take another step,” I lie.

Understanding sweeps across his face, then awe. It settles into caution.

Aaron holds up his hands in surrender, asking, “Can I at least go break up the boys before they kill each other?”

READ MORE

I hesitate, reluctantly nod. Their sparring sounds like two disgruntled hogs – ear-splitting and brutal. I don’t need another dead friend. Besides, Aaron knows I wouldn’t leave without him. “Then we’ll talk about all this.”

“Get your paws off me,” Taylor spits at me, tugging.

I ignore her.

“You can let go of her, ya know,” the green-eyed boy says. “None of this is necessary.”

I flash him a deadly look. Like I believe anything he has to say. I’ll give them a chance to explain, but I have the upper hand…or so they think. As far as they know, I can get us out of here whenever I want.

While Aaron tries to break up the fight, the bearded man in flannel eyes me. The Changer woman whispers in his ear. I get a better look at her. She reminds me of Blythe in a way, with her silver-laced dreads and laugh lines around her mouth and eyes, but she’s sturdier. Broader. And her irises are celery green.

“Ow!” Cole howls.

We turn to see Aaron twisting Cole’s arm behind his back. Cole falls to his knees. “You gonna chill out, man?” Aaron asks, but he’s not menacing about it. It seems to pain him.

Cole growls but nods, wincing.

The man he attacked staggers to his feet, blinking his one good eye, the other one already swelling shut. Blood drips from his nose and over his lips. “Fuck,” he stammers, blood spraying. He’s lost his hat somewhere in the fray, mud smeared up one side of his face and matting his blond hair.

Cole appears to be untouched, minus a few scrapes and sprigs of foliage in his dreads. His massive shoulders heave with exhaustion. He gave it everything he had. Aaron can’t help but chuckle humorlessly. “I guess you paid attention during. L...” He stops himself from saying his name. A shadow passes over his features. “Training.”

What a great ending to this series. Mira, Cole and Taylor were amazing. To keep fighting after all that happened in book two—respect. There was a chance for humanity to redeem itself at the end of this—and I honestly did not know if that would happen. I’d like to think that people would see the error of their ways and do the right thing, but today’s climate demonstrates otherwise. I was really happy with how this wrapped up. Many were lost along the way, but I was glad those who remained got the ending they did. Such a great series.
