Can music heal a fractured soul?
Or will it tear them apart forever?

Thirteen years—that’s how long Isabeau Montgomery has been living a lie. After an automobile accident took her mother’s life, Izzy hid herself away, surviving the only way she knew how. Now she is happy in her carefully reconstructed life. That is until he walks through the door of her bar…

Black Phoenix singer/front man Noah Clark came to Long Island City with a goal—one that doesn’t include an instant, electric attraction to the dark-haired beauty behind the bar. Coaxing her into his bed won’t be easy, but he can’t get her pale, haunted eyes nor her skill on the piano out of his head.
Can Noah help Isabeau overcome the past? Or will her need to protect her secret force her back into hiding and destroy their chance at happiness?

Renee Charles Changes in Autumn!

Ex-animal control officer, Autumn Reynolds always had a soft spot for injured animals. So when one shows up on her porch with a gunshot wound, she has no choice but to help it. But she gets caught in the maelstrom when the injured wolf turns out to be a hot werewolf and the shooter comes back to finish the job. Now she's going to become a wolf, or die trying. Fortunately, she has her own Alpha-male who owes her one. However, Autumn fears if she does survive, she might lose her heart in the process.

Conner Grayson owes the beautiful woman his life and feels obligaged to help her through her first change. Though he recognized her as his mate, as her Alpha, he won't deny Autumn the right to choose once she becomes a wolf. That is, if he can resist the overwhelming need to claim her as his own.  

As Renee was prepping her post to visit with me today, we were tossing out ideas as authors are often wont to do, when she came up with a zinger of an idea...

Maybe a paragraph about what inspired this story and why it's different than most werewolf stories. What do you think?
I, of course, shouted a resounding, FABULOUS! Because of the recent influx of shapeshifter, vampire, werewolf stories, coupled with the fact that I am an avid fantasy reader, I'm always looking for a story that stands outside its genre. But it's often hard to figure out which of those books are the best choice, right, Renee?

Right! It's a good question AJ. There has got to be thousands of werewolf stories out there. But, Changes In Autumn is not your typical werewolf story. This Novella stands apart from others in this genre in that it avoids the typical ‘Alpha male finds his mate and mounts her’ angle. Instead, it chronicles the changes Autumn goes through to become a werewolf…physically, mentally, and spiritually. I really wanted to take on the perspective of Autumn discovering she is about to become one of those creatures that go bump in the night. I love a good, steamy werewolf story, don't get me wrong, but I had to think there would be a significant freak out factor about more than "hey, this hot guy is my mate, lucky me." That being said, one of the 'changes' happens to be meeting and claiming her mate, but not until Autumn comes face to face with the fact that she is, for all intents and purposes, becoming a monster. I like to be surprised, caught off guard by a story. So, that is the experience I try to provide for my readers as well.

Sounds wonderful! And for all you readers out there, here's a sneak peek inside Changes in Autumn!
    “I will not do this to you. The change has begun and have to choose your mate.” His words came between short ragged breaths. “If we make love, you will no longer have a choice.”
     “There’s always a choice.” Even as the words left her mouth, her body denied it. She hummed with an awareness of him that could not be ignored.
     He shook his head. “Stay in the water until your skin doesn’t itch anymore. I’m going to put a couple of steaks on for us.”
     The click of the door closing behind him when he left her alone echoed through her aching
body. Autumn refused to believe that what she felt wasn’t real. She was so aware of him that she could feel him leave the next room after he got dressed. Her awareness of him was like a rubber band that stretched tighter and thinner the further he moved away from her.
     If what he said was true, she feared it was too late. She’d already chosen.

The Chronicles of Kerrigan are here!

I am thrilled to be one of the lucky people chosen to show off the brand new covers for...
The Chronicles of Kerrigan
by Wanita May
Whoo Hoo!
*Cheers Whistles Confetti*

Read on to find out more about this amazing series by my friend and agency mate, Wanita May!
How hard do you have to shake the family tree to find the truth about the past?
Fifteen year-old Rae Kerrigan never really knew her family's history. Her mother and father died when she was young and it is only when she accepts a scholarship to the prestigious Guilder Boarding School in England that a mysterious family secret is revealed.

Will the sins of the father be the sins of the daughter?

As Rae struggles with new friends, a new school and a star-struck forbidden love, she must also face the ultimate challenge: receive a tattoo on her sixteenth birthday with specific powers that may bind her to an unspeakable darkness. It's up to Rae to undo the dark evil in her family's past and have a ray of hope for her future.
Nothing is as it seems anymore.
Leery from the horrifying incident at the end of her first year at Guilder Boarding School, Rae Kerrigan is determined to learn more about her new tattoo. Her expectations are high, an easy senior year and a happy reunion with Devon, the boy she’s not supposed to date. All hopes of happiness turn into shattered dreams the moment she steps back on campus.
Lies and secrets are everywhere, and a betrayal cuts Rae deeply. Among her conflicts and enemies, it appears as if her father is reaching out from beyond the grave to ruin her life. With no one to trust, Rae doesn’t know where or who to turn to for help. Has her destiny been written? Or will she become the one thing she hates the most—her father’s prodigy.

Rae’s half a year away from Guilder and just accepted a position as an agent for the Privy Council. She’s given a mentor, Jennifer, who fights like a demon – she’s fast, tough, and incredibly beautiful. Rae bonds with her, and just at the right time, she finds a new friend when Devon disappoints her again.
A memory from Book II comes back to Rae and haunts her. Something about where her parents took as a child evokes a hidden secret that she’s determined to solve. When the Privy Council asks her to go undercover to found out more information about the Xavier Knights – another agency similar to the Privy Council, Rae dives in head first. Through the mystery and secrets, she begins to question what the PC represents and loses herself in the confusions about the past, the present and her future.

Why would a prince marry a commoner?
This fairytale wedding has a twist; the new Queen has a tatù that even the King knows nothing about.
The newly crowned King and Queen of England have requested the help of the Privy Council. Partnered with her ex, Devon , the two must pretend to be couple and work as body guards protecting the royal couple as they entertain at Buckingham Palace and on holiday. They need to found out who wants the queen dead and also comes to terms with their feelings for each other.
Can Royalty be protected in time for the annual Royal Tea Charity? And will Rae ever be free from her father’s grip, even after his death?
