A Shade of a Vampire, by Bella Forrest

On the evening of Sofia Claremont’s seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake. A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to The Shade, an enchanted island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine – an island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is selected out of hundreds of girls to take up residence in the tree-top harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal prince.

Flying Away, by Caroline A. Gill

When Iolani Bearse was five years old, she lost her father to war. When she was nine, her mother died in a freak car accident. When Lani was fourteen, eerie green lights invaded, tearing her from the only home she had left.

Living as a runaway, dragging a horse and her cousin Eleanor across the countryside, Lani must learn to survive. Now Lani is the only person between the horrible, greedy lights and the last bit of family she has left. Her own heart is barely beating, but powerful memories pull her to Malcolm St. John. She fights what she feels, buried deep within her shattered soul.

St. Nick, by Alan Russell

When Santa Claus is a cop, you better watch out.

It’s not looking like a very merry Christmas for San Diego cop Nick Pappas. Suspended from his job, alienated from his family, and persecuted by the press, he’s sorely tempted to turn his gun on himself. Except for his first name, he couldn’t possibly have less in common with jolly old St. Nicholas. But when a local mall decides it needs a secret Santa to help collar some vicious muggers preying on its holiday shoppers, Nick’s persuaded to red-suit up so as to take the naughty punks down and avert a ho-ho homicide. For a chance to bust bad guys, Nick’s willing to deal with crying kids, pushy parents, and a chronically cheerful “elf” sidekick. But the biggest challenge for this cop-turned-Claus is one that would confound even the real Kris Kringle: making a pair of next-to-impossible Christmas wishes come true for two children in need…before it’s too late.

Now, Clara will have to fight if she wants to save the Mansion… and the one that hides at its center.

A Step Outside of Normal, by RS Leergard Laurie Gienapp

A Step Outside of Normal presents seven situations which are almost, but not quite, normal. Not really supernatural, not really fantasy, not really general fiction. Instead, they’re each a little bit “off”. And short, to suit your busy lifestyle.
Hell of a Day is about a young man who has to deal with divorced parents who don’t like each other… but with an unusual setting. Sunnybrook Acres is a story of a retirement home, with an unexpected cadre of residents. Pirates looks at the world out of the eyes of a young child. Always is a tender story about loss, except that maybe it’s not so tender. Xyxyx examines the beginning of the world, but perhaps not our world. The Double presents a young woman who appears to have a doppelganger. And Rage—well, you’ll just have to read that one.

Will the handsome prince still be at the side of this unexpected fairy-tale princess when the clock strikes midnight?
