Summary: A New F/F Fantasy Romance from the author of Cynthia and Eve. Book 1 of 'The Fae Souls'. When I first arrived at the mansion, I couldn't remember anything. My name, how I'd got there or who the people were around me. I knew I was a woman, and the pink dress and brown ankle boots I wore felt vaguely familiar, but nothing more. It wasn't long before I was told my name was Celina. I was given a suite to stay in and encouraged to prepare for the mysterious Prince Eldran's masquerade party. I found everything I needed in my suite, other than the answers I sought. Fragments of memory hinted at dark experiences, at love and loss, but there was no context and I was uncertain about my history and what the future might hold for me. A stranger at the time, Sorcha found me alone as I sought solace in an empty room. I discovered she too had missing memories, and in her I found a person to talk to. A friend and more, but did we have a chance? A Masquerade in Time is a romantic novella of just over 20,000 words, which contains strong steamy content and language.

Summary:

"At first, I tried to pretend that I wasn’t different. That these urges I felt were no more than just sinful lust of the flesh. But when I’m near him I can’t help but close my eyes and bask in his essence; so fresh, like the smell of the Earth rising after the rain. How can I silence the desires of the flesh? I find myself dreaming of him at night. I find myself craving to taste him, and his body tells me that he desires the same. But I am so afraid."

Johanan is a sweet Amish farm boy with a secret. He and his best friend Amos share a bond beyond what would constitute as "just friends," a love that dare not speak its name.

But when they are discovered by their fathers locked in a kiss, it results in a confrontation and the end of their innocence. They are forbidden to see one another again, and their sacred bond is deemed an abomination.

Will Amos and Johanan ever see one another again, or will they remain forever separated by the punishment for their sin?

Summary:

ελπίδα. Elpída. Greek. Meaning hope Hope. v. /ˈhōp/ to want something to happen or be true and think that it could happen or be true

Michael and Christy attended prom, graduated high school, and Michael leads the USATF tryouts. With Oxford University on the horizon, his future looks bright, and he believes life has returned to normal after Christy’s rescue. He couldn’t be more wrong.

Christy has been free from a life of slavery for more than a year and has made remarkable progress due in no small part to the love he found with Michael. But the recent prosecution of a past abuser has shattered the life he so painstakingly built out of nothing but a mountain of horror. He now faces the daunting task of building a new life—yet again. Twelve-year-old Thimi has been missing since Christy left Greece and, unbeknownst to everyone, has hidden out in a vacant mansion in Glyfada. Learning of Christy’s survival is the only thing that brings him out of hiding. People, open spaces, even the most common of sounds frighten him beyond reason. A mere ghost of a boy, Thimi arrives in the US with no knowledge of the outside world—the only constant in his life a purple marble. Lost, shattered, and afraid, only hope gives them the strength and courage they need to begin anew. Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime.~Herbert Ward
