Book Blurb:

No one ever warned her magic came with a price.

When Callie Rycroft wakes to purple flames on the ceiling, she discovers that not only does the Faery realm exist, but she is the human who must save it. Chosen as Champion by the Faery Queen, Callie is tasked with finding the Cordial, a magical elixir to strengthen the portal between the Human and Faery realms.

The upside? Reece Michaels, the boy she's been crushing on for years, is assigned as her Guardian. Callie hopes by spending time together, he'll start to see her as more than just his best friend's sister.
The downside? She's in a race not only against time, but another Champion and Guardian-a Guardian who stands to threaten her developing relationship with Reece.
Magic, mistaken identities, and hidden agendas are the least of Callie's worries when she learns the Cordial requires a sacrifice. Will Callie be willing to risk all, even Reece, to complete her task as Champion, or will she let the portal fall, destroying both realms?

And now, the cover for FAERY MARKED.

Mary Waibel - Novel Debut: A Different Kind of Knight

I have the honor of hosting my friend and author Mary Waibel as she releases her new book, A Different Kind of Knight! Having been a reader of Mary's I can assure you, you are in for a treat.

Welcome to Valendria!

Picture Europe in the middle ages, and you'll be pretty close to what Valendria is like. Made up of five kingdomsBreneira, Palindore, Faldaera, Delphine, and LowenguildeValendria is a land filled with beautiful scenery and unique creatures.

Our first introduction to Valendria came in QUEST OF THE HART. Here, the neighboring kingdoms of Breneira and Palindore came to life as Princess Kaylee of Palindore went on a quest to rescue her betrothed, Prince Devlin of Breneira, from a sleep spell. Little was seen of Palindore, as most of our time was spent traveling the swamps and mountains of Breneira with our brave heroine. Magic is a force to be reckoned with in this world, as our its unusual creatures, such as the Golden Dragon, Aureal.

In CHARMED MEMORIES, we see a bit more of Palindore, as well as Faldaera. But most of our time is spent in the island kingdom of Delphine, as Lady Bri, the kingdom's best tracker, helps Prince Trevor search for his missing princess. Merfolk, magic, treachery, and betrayal are at the heart of this tale.

While in Delphine, we meet Prince Broderick, more commonly known as Brody. When his world falls apart, he leaves his island kingdom and winds up leading a rag-tag group of men against a variety of mythological creatures. When his path crosses with Princess Gabrielle, or Rielle as she prefers, he learns that more than dangerous creatures plague the kingdom of Faldaera. Come on a tour of the countrysides of Faldaera and Lowenguilde in DIFFERENT KIND OF KNIGHT and meet some exotic creatures such as griffons, wyverns, arrowhawks, and griffonvuls.
