Getting involved with an angel, especially a half-Fallen one, might not have been Eden's best idea. Still, she never thought a summer fling with Az would end up costing her mortality.
Now, there's no way of telling what will happen when Eden's fingertips graze human skin. The power that builds inside her, Touch, strips away morals and logic. Some people only feel a high; others are overcome by their darkest thoughts.
Worse, word's gotten around that her Touch can kill her own kind, a skill Luke and the Fallen are desperate to harness. The last thing Eden needs is the rumor to spread. Especially since it's true.
With the Fallen closing in, and loyalties in doubt, Eden must rely on the guy who broke her heart to keep it beating. Working with the Upstairs, Az is determined to defeat Luke and win back more than just Eden's loyalty. But Eden will be damned, literally, before she lets him off the hook that easily.

The Valley Of Dreams - A Classical Horror Story
"And above all his memorable epic of the sensitive aesthetic mind, The Valley of Dreams, in which the youthful hero responds to the magic of that ancient Welsh environment which is the author's own, and lives a dream-life in the Roman city of Isca Silurum, now shrunk to the relic-strown village of Caerelon-on-Usk. But the fact remains that his powerful horror-material of the 'nineties ans and earlier nienteen-hundreds stands alone in its class, and marks a distinct epoch in the history of this literary form."

In the far future, humankind has left a destroyed Earth behind. No one misses the Earth; it's location a mystery and its existence beginning to be considered a myth. Until rumours spread that something unbelievable, miraculous and valuable beyond compare is there. Those in charge want it, and an official mission to recover the Kamilifu mtoto of legend is launched, but they are not the only ones in the hunt. Criminals, mercenaries and hired killers converge on the dead home world. But is Earth as dead as they think? And are humans the only one searching?
Aletheia is a melancholy goth living in New Orleans. Her dark moods have been her constant companion for as long as she can remember, but never more so than when her good friend and fellow tarot reader is murdered by the serial killer ravaging Jackson Square. The third in a string of murders, the supernatural killer creates gruesome tableaus, carving astrological symbols into the victims' chests and leaving tarot cards in their hands. In the wake of her friend's murder comes Martin, the unconventional detective with Santeria tattoos on his arms; Lilly, an eccentric and detached tarot reader with a propensity for saying unusual and vaguely prophetic things, and Edgar, the emotionally needy drug dealer that's infatuated with Aletheia. Employing occult knowledge, intuition and tarot cards, they each try to solve the murders as the killings pile up amidst a complex web of social relationships.
Leaving a dying Earth behind them, the remnants of humanity head towards their new home on a distant planet.
However, they never reach it, instead crash landing on a barren and hostile planet that no human was ever meant to survive on. With no water, and no hope, they must find a way to keep the human race alive in the wastelands of Icarus.
Mackenzie Miller leaves behind the only life she knows to join the Diviners in their search for water, wandering directly into the greatest dangers Icarus can offer.
There's more to worry about on Icarus than just dehydration. When Mackenzie learns what truly lurks in the deserts, dying of thirst is the least of her concerns.

THE AMISH LOVE OF CLAIRE MILLER
Claire Miller was a simple woman; she wanted to live her life how she saw fit, make her own decisions - and, most importantly, have control over her own life. It wasn't, she thought, an absurd thing to ask.
Unfortunately, her father didn't feel the same. He had controlled the family since long before she was born; and since her mother's death three years ago it had only become worse. It was stifling, overwhelming, and sometimes so much Claire felt as if she could barely breathe without unwanted criticism. It wasn't as if she wanted to abandon their way of life; she just wanted a little more autonomy.
Which is why she sat in their dimly lit living room with a book on her lap, studiously ignoring her father - and her sister Susannah - as they went on and on about their latest obsession; finding Claire a husband.
Hannah is a young Amish woman who struggles to deal with her father's depression after his wife died unexpectedly. A few years have ...

Former Navy SEAL Nixon Swagger is home.
After twelve years of service and twice as many deployments, all Nix wanted was quiet. He'd sought the solace of the land he'd grown up on and found the peace he needed to silence the noise and figure out his next move. Nixon's stay was supposed to be temporary. He wasn't supposed to meet a feisty, head-strong woman who made his pulse race and set his body on fire. Falling in love hadn't been part of his plan. Taking a government contract to stop a homegrown terrorist group hadn't been either, but when the organization threatens to attack Philadelphia, he had no choice but to accept.
McKenna Wilson was living. Every day was the same. Raising her two teenage siblings didn't leave time for much else. Most days, she was okay with that. Then she bumped into the sexy war hero and, in an instant, her world changed. She had no idea falling for Nixon would be so dangerous. Now she was going head-to-head with the small-town's dirty sheriff who was ...

This is their story.
