TORN by Laney McMann

Find Max.

That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.

Protect Layla.

For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her.

Every. Single. One of them.

In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

If young love worth fighting for keeps you up reading all night, you will love this second installment in the Fire Born trilogy.

And J. Taylor Publishing is giving away FIVE ARC copies.

Mac Thorne’s time as a Changeling is coming to an end.

It may have taken eighteen years, but Mac did finally manage to do what the Council wanted: she chose a teacher and renounced the in-between.

There’s just one last step. She must say goodbye to her human. Forever.

After being challenged in every way possible, Mac leaves what she thought would be the easiest task for the last possible moment. As midnight on July fourth draws near, though, she hasn’t found a way to give up Winn Thomas.

Nor does she want to.

With time running out, Mac stands at a literal crossroads.

Choose Winn, and she’ll be stripped of the only family she’s ever known—vampires, dragons, and her favorite demon. Even her own mother. Accept her position on the Council and rule as an equal to her twelve peers, and she’ll forget Winn ever existed.

Independence and freedom have never before been so limiting.

In this final chapter of the 19th Year Trilogy, it’s time for Mac to decide.

Responsibility? Or Love?

In the Arms of an Angel – 100 Word Challenge

Today, I’m participating in Julia’s Place 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups.  The prompt today is:

“…I’m exhausted. Shut the door behind you…”

Here’s my attempt.  Hope you enjoy.

In the Arms of an Angel

A young man appeared in the threshold of my hospital room.  I knew him right away, though I’d never seen his face.  Angels, even ones of death, have wonderful auras about them.  I clasped my frail hands to my chest and shed a tear of joy.

“You came,” I said.  “You heard my prayers.”

“Yes, Molly.”  His voice was light as air, sweet as honeysuckle on a vine.  There was such tenderness in his eyes.

“Good,” I said. “I’m exhausted.  Shut the door behind you, please.”

He held me as the door breathed closed.  The light faded.  Death is beautiful in the arms of an angel.
