The Legend of the Blue Eyes (Blue Eyes Trilogy #1) by B. Kristin McMichael
Arianna Grace liked her boring, Midwestern, teenage life where she ignored the many unanswered questions of her childhood. Why were her parents dead? Why did she not have family? Where was she raised until she was five? When someone offers to explain it all, Arianna thinks she’s just getting answers. Instead, she is thrown into a world of night humans who drink blood.
On Arianna's sixteenth birthday, her world is thrown upside down when she changes into a vampire. Night humans, or demons, as some call them, live in normal society. Learning all of the new rules of a world she didn’t know existed might be hard enough, but it's further complicated by two former-friends that now want to help her take her role as the successor to her grandfather.
There is a war going on between the night humans. Sides have been taken and lines are not crossed. Four main clans of night humans are struggling for control of the night. Divided into two sides, clans Baku and Tengu have been at war for centuries with the clans Dearg-dul and Lycan.
That is, until Arianna Grace finds out the truth; she’s the bridge of peace between the two sides. But not everyone wants peace. With the night humans divided, Arianna is now a pawn in the war between them.
She must choose a side—her mother’s family or her father’s—and for once in her life, decide her own fate.
The Necklace of Goddess Athena by Effrosyni Moschoudi
on September 27, 2013
Phevos, a young time-traveler from ancient Greece, arrives in Athens shocked and confused. His enigmatic father has just sent him there, having given him his precious necklace, without offering any information.
Ksenia, a local young girl, gives Phevos shelter in the area of Plaka under the Acropolis.
They fall madly in love but the secrets he keeps from her torture him.
A shocking revelation causes him to tell her where he comes from and, at the same time, helps him realize that what he is meant to do is find his lost mother and Ksenia’s missing parents too. Soon, they discover they have a common past that, mysteriously, they remember nothing of. As their love grows stronger, they continue to unravel more family secrets that lead them to two precious artefacts offered by an Olympian god.
Now, they’re caught up in a conflict between two deities; one is a protector, the other, their worst nemesis. Can they find their loved ones again before their fierce enemy discovers their plans? And will Phevos ever remember what happened the last time he saw his mother?
My Sister and Other Liars by Ruth Dugdall
Sam is seventeen, starving herself and longing for oblivion. Her sister, Jena, is mentally scarred and desperate to remember. Between them, they share secrets too terrible to recall.
Eighteen months earlier, Sam was still full of hope: hope that she could piece together Jena’s fragmented memory after the vicious attack that changed their family forever. But digging into the past unearthed long-hidden lies and betrayals, and left Sam feeling helpless and alone in a world designed to deceive her.
Now, in a last bid to save her from self-imposed shutdown, Sam’s therapist is helping her confront her memories.
But the road to recovery is a dangerous one.
Because Sam has not only been lying to her doctors: she’s been hiding dark secrets from herself.
White Lies by Jeremy Bates
You Never Know Where A Lie Might Lead...
While driving to a charming village tucked away deep in the Cascade Mountains of eastern Washington, where she is to begin a new job teaching high school English, Katrina Burton picks up a young hitchhiker who turns out to be a drunken creep. Fearful for her safety, she lies about her destination in order to get him out of the car. But when she later discovers that he is a teacher at the same school, she finds herself feeding that initial lie with more lies.
Then Katrina meets Jack Reeves. Handsome, charismatic and strong, he is exactly what she needs to extricate her from the expanding network of lies. She falls fast and hard for him. But when Jack lands himself in the middle of a grisly murder, she must decide whether to turn him in--or tell yet another lie.
Cesspool by Phil M. Williams
A disgraced teacher stands between a crooked police department and a runaway girl.
James Fisher was the devoted teacher who taught his students to question authority. He was the devoted husband that didn’t know what his wife was up to. His life was a tragedy waiting to happen.
After the accident, he moved to a backwoods town, content to waste away while the world burned. He was awakened from his apathy by a small girl with a big problem. It was safer to look the other way. Getting involved would place James squarely in the crosshairs of the local police.
He was afraid, but he did it anyway.

Her Best Match (The Best Girls, #1) by Tamie Dearen
Feisty, stubborn, and bored with life in Texas, Anne Best is about to get more than she bargained for.
The lovely widow heads off to the Big Apple for a job interview, expecting no more than a few days adventure in New York City, only to find herself with a new job working for the most infuriating man she's ever met.
Billionaire Steven Gherring is one of New York's Most Eligible Bachelors, and he has every intention of staying that way. But Gram has other ideas. She's on a not-so-secret campaign to find a wife for her grandson.
As fearless as she is clumsy, Anne tackles every challenge (including her new boss) enthusiastically, with two lone exceptions... public speaking and recognizing her own feelings. Passions rise along with hemlines as Gram joins forces with Anne, a veteran matchmaker, to find the perfect match for Steven.
“If you like Hallmark movies, you’ll love The Best Girls!”
Remember 2 may or may not stay, how do you choose?
