One would think the sassy, sexy hybrid Earthen Protector and Healer Alex Conner deserves some downtime after all she’s been through. But no. Instead, she finds herself trapped by the king of the Fae, and he’s not letting her go until he gets what he wants.

As alternate realities tangle her in confusion and bring her close to forgetting who she is and everyone she loves, will she unwittingly give the king what he craves? If she does escape, will she ever pick up where she left off with her sexy Adonis Ryan? And can she control the new power she never knew she could wield—one over life and death itself—or will she be entangled in a realm whose ruler is hell-bent on entrapping her and someone she holds dear, forever?

A thrilling YA Epic fantasy/HEA Romance that's enjoyable for all ages! 
Join the incredible journey full of magical beings, terrifying and majestic creatures, and the two young hearts destined to save a kingdom. 
When fate brings the young Prince Ryzyn and the rover girl Gem together, not only do their lives become forever entwined, their meeting also ignites the power within an ancient object—the Heart of Cyan. 
With the mystical Heart discovered, the wielder must prepare for an epic battle against a vicious, pervasive darkness that threatens all of Parlethis. Magical forces unite for the good of the land, but will that be enough to stop the Shadowland creatures from destroying them all?





If you love urban fantasy, supernatural suspense, magical realism, and paranormal romance, you’ll love my novels.
 Ms. Sinclair gives credit to the development of her imagination and passion for writing to multiple childhood destinations lacking indoor plumbing. It may sound odd, yet when your journey to adulthood consists of numerous backpacking, camping, and hiking trips to the most out-of-the-way and breathtakingly beautiful places in North America, the creation of games, worlds, and characters are the results. She would never trade the childhood her parents gave her, and she thanks them for raising her to have her own thoughts, dreams, and bountiful imagination. Oh, and she wishes to thank them for teaching her that one should never leave their jeans on the floor of an Everglades campground shower—lest they do the dance of the scorpions in the pants again!
 While attending college, Ms. Sinclair studied biological sciences and psychology, specifically animal behavior, but her love has forever been to write. There are boxes in her house filled with notebooks, journals, and logs with poems, stories, lyrics, and personal rants scratched into them with pencil, marker, pen, whatever she could get her hands on. Words demanded to be thrown out of her mind and onto paper by any means necessary. Ms. Sinclair’s studies have contributed greatly to the worlds, characters, and stories she creates, proving that no matter what path you take, it will all be part of where you end up—sometimes in spectacular ways!
 Since 2007, Ms. Sinclair calls Coastal Virginia home where she is a licensed school counselor currently following her dreams as a professional author & content writer. Ms. Sinclair's writes magical realism, paranormal romance, adult urban fantasy, YA epic fantasy, and romantic fantasy novels.
 Alex Conner Chronicles Reading Order: Trust, Truth, Forbidden, and then Only!

Taylor Johns Spotlight

TAYLOR JOHNS


What genre do you write?
Contemporary Erotic Romance
Which actress/actor would you like seeing play the lead in your book?
Kat Dennings
What type of books do you read?
The same kind I write… lol  I love reading about damaged men and the strong women that help put them back together.
Any favourite authors?
Oh lord, yes. Lots of them. There are my Wicked ladies- Brooke Lee, Cordelia Michelsen, Jane Anthony, Lainie Suzanne, Muffy Wilson, Shannon Youngblood, and Virginia Lee Johnson. I also love M.Never, K. Bromberg, J.Kenner, Sylvia Day, Harper Sloan, Maya Banks, Katy Evens, Christina Lauren, Samantha Towle, Jasinda Wilder, and Jody Ellen Malpas I think I’ll sop now before I get carried away. 😉

Do you think that book covers are important?
Yes and no.  A great cover can lure readers to a book, but what matters is what lies beneath the cover.
What is your favourite book?
Oh, there are so many, I just can’t pick one. The Driven series and Decadence After Dark series are my ultimate favorites.

What do you use as inspiration?
Everyday life and conversations I have with people.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Feisty. Sarcastic. Loving.

At what age were you, or what event happened, when you knew you loved writing and you were good at it?
My dad passed suddenly in 2014 and it made me realize that I should pursue my dreams before it was too late.
Do you base your characters on real people or are they completely imagined?
This is a yes and no question for me. I add a little bit of my husband in all my men and I’ve added a little bit of my best friend in a couple of my secondary characters. I’ve used their mannerisms, their quirks, and faults that I love about them.
What authors have inspired you along the way?
I really can’t say just one author gets all the credit. All the authors I’ve met and interacted with has taught me a little something about the writing world.  The indie community is an amazing place and I’ve been lucky enough to become friends with some of the nicest, most helpful authors that are out there.
What is your favourite quote or line from a book?
Ugh! This is a hard question. All my women are sassy and strong. But if I had to choose, I would pick a line from Lilly from my first book. “If I wanted to be used and thrown away, I would change my name to Bounty.”

Besides writing what do you enjoy doing?
Reading, listening to music, watching TV, scrapbooking, anything crafty, going fishing with the husband, finding new authors to read, help promoting my friends, annoying my bestfriend… I think that is about it.

Do you have any signings coming up?
No, but I am going to Indies in Indy in July as a reader. I’m so excited about. It’s my very first book convention and I can’t wait to fangirl and meet new authors as a reader.

Royal Attraction by Tiffany Truitt

Title: Royal Attraction
Author: Tiffany Truitt
Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: September 18, 2017 
Alexandra Ryans’s life has been anything but normal. Some might even call it a fairy tale. As the daughter of the former U.S. ambassador to England, she grew up within the palace walls, best friends with the three young princes. Adored by the press and the British people. What more could a girl want?
If only the press knew the real story behind her relationships with the Dudley boys. Then, they’d really sell some papers.
Oliver Dudley, youngest son and third in line for the throne, loves everything about his life. The fame. The parties. The women. The utter lack of expectations and responsibilities that come with being last in the line of succession. But while the world thinks he has everything he wants, there's one thing he was never able to call his own—the beautiful and spunky American Aly Ryans. But how can he convince her when she hates everything about his life? And what is he willing to give up to get her?
Tiffany Truitt was born in Peoria, Illinois. A self-proclaimed Navy brat, Tiffany spent most of her childhood living in Virginia, but don’t call her a Southerner. She also spent a few years living in Cuba. Since her time on the island of one McDonalds and Banana Rats (don't ask), she has been obsessed with traveling. Tiffany recently added China to her list of travels (hello inspiration for a new book).
Besides traveling, Tiffany has always been an avid reader. The earliest books she remembers reading belong to The Little House on the Prairie Series. First book she read in one day? Little Woman (5th grade). First author she fell in love with? Jane Austen in middle school. Tiffany spent most of her high school and college career as a literary snob. She refused to read anything considered "low brow" or outside the "classics."
Tiffany began teaching middle school in 2006. Her students introduced her to the wide, wonderful world of Young Adult literature. Today, Tiffany embraces popular Young Adult literature and uses it in her classroom. She currently teaches the following novels: The Outsiders, Speak, Night, Dystopian Literature Circles: The Hunger Games, The Giver, The Uglies, and Matched.
