A Feeling Like Home

Not when her dad gets sick, not when her relationship implodes, not even when her parents send her to another-freaking-state for the summer to live with her sister. Paige just wants to have fun, spray paint a few walls, and block out everything stressful, including her growing concern that she might be sick as well. To make things worse, her parents threaten her with boarding school in the fall if she can’t prove she’s changed her bad habits.
Just as Paige begins to feel settled in Texas, her dad’s worsening Crohn’s disease brings her home to Seattle. When her own health fails her, she has the choice of staying at home and receiving care. Or, she could go back to Texas and prove for once and for all that she’s more than her mistakes and more than a disease. Torn between two worlds and two versions of herself, Paige must decide where, and with whom, she truly feels at home.

Beneath the Starlit Sea
NA Romantic Fantasy
Sorceress Illyse prefers to isolate herself from the age-old conflict between her kind and the humans of Sjökanten, but not at the expense of her own life. Captured by the king's men and threatened with death for the crimes of her coven, she strikes a bargain: put an end to the murders of human citizens at the hands of a mysterious sea-bound entity, or be forever imprisoned in ore as so many other sorceresses have.
Bound by an iron band that limits her power, Illyse and her fox familiar join with Garit Darling, a medical practitioner and mystery unto himself. Together, they delve deep into forgotten lore and forbidden romantic entanglements, despite a ban on relationships between sorceresses and humans. However, when it is discovered that Garit's past is more closely tied to their investigation than either realizes, soon their passion and distraction from the crimes may just be at the cost of Illyse's potential freedom--and Garit's life.
