Author: Cheri Marie and LB Russell
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017 Cover Designer: MGBookCovers Photographer: Kruse Photography Model: BT Urruela
We’ve been best friends for a long time. Always my protector, it only made sense that we’d end up partners at the Oceanside Police Department. Now, with a killer on the loose, possibly targeting me, emotions are high and feelings are surfacing that I’ve never felt before.
Since the day I met her, quivering and scared under the jungle gym, I knew she would be a substantial part of my life. The years passed and I felt myself falling. With Skye seemingly the target of some sick fucks obsession, I will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. But first, she needs to know how I really feel about her.
A killer is on the loose, Skye and my sisters’ lives are on the line.
Friendship. Love. A Secret Obsession. Murder.
If It Came Down To Choosing Between The People You Love, Could You Make The Choice?
“Don’t play stupid Skye! Us, I want to talk about us.” “Fucking Christ Colin, there is no us! What do I have to do to get it through to you?” “Say you don’t love me.” “What? Don’t be fucking ridiculous.” “Say it Skye. If there’s really no us, tell me right now that you don’t love me. That you don’t feel the same fucking way about me that I feel about you.” I take a step towards her. “I’m not going to say that because it isn’t true. I do love you. But like a friend.” “Just a friend?” I ask as I take another step closer to her, forcing her to take another step backwards, her back against the wall. Our close proximity is getting to her, I can see it in her breathing and her body language. Leaning in, I brush my lips against hers.

Title: Salem's Curse
Series: The Soul-Shifter Chronicles #1
Author: Sydney Bristow
Genre: NA Urban Fantasy
Release Date: February 18, 2017
Brilliant witch. Socially awkward. The last protector of the human race. 
So yeah, that’s me: Celestina Sykes. Now seriously, how can I save humanity when I practically go into panic attack mode just talking with a stranger? And guys? Yeah, right! I’ve never even kissed one, much less went on a date.
Not only that, but my witch-bitch Granny stole my memory of the week someone killed my mom, which was around the same time I mysteriously aged two years within a couple minutes, and you get an idea how awesome my life is. 
All told, I’ve got a few days to figure out whom to trust, finally make some friends who can help with this whole end-of-the-world-thing, and my social calendar is kinda booked. But hey, wish me luck…and multiply that by infinity because I think I’m gonna need it.
"Did you know,” Granny said in monotone, “that you are not eighteen years of age?” I replayed her statement in my mind, and…I sensed she believed the words she spoke, no matter how ridiculous they sounded. “The week your mother died,” she continued, “you physically aged two years…within an hour.” Granny looked at me, plain-faced, her mouth closed with no intention of saying another word. “What’re you talking about?” I asked, my lips lifting at the absurdity. “You sound like a lunatic.” “Do I look like a lunatic?” “Yes! Always. It’s your thing.”
Sydney writes about the type of women that populate the world. Well, okay, maybe they're not witches, vampires, and shifters, but you know - the strong, smart, and witty type.
