Blurb:


The darkness in Elnye is growing.
There is screaming in Exhile.

The mysterious woman, known only as “She”, is in a rage. Her pawn, Maleina has made a dangerous move and severed her communications with the dark mistress. Now as dueling dark forces, master and willing initiate, they begin to jockey for power as the stage is set for the coming war. 

Kaeleigh and her small band of loyal companions have escaped the dungeons of Elnye and found their way to the secret home of the Ehsmia. After breaking the vicious bond that enslaved Daegan to Maleina’s will, the walls between Kaeleigh and her Ferrishyn warrior begin to fall, as their feelings for each other begin to give way to passion.


The darkness is fractured, but its relentless quest for power goes unabated. A war is coming. However, the power of the Sol-lumieth has finally come together and found its light. A blinding light of freedom, that may be the salvation for all of Alandria.

Blurb:
A dying realm. 
The ancient evil of the Droch-Shúil has been unleashed. 
The Orchids have been silenced… but for how long? 

Daegan, elite of the Ferrishyn warrior tribe of Faeries, is charged with a mission to find the Sol-lumieth, a mysterious new power that could change the fate of all in the realm of Alandria. But he is conflicted by his purpose, and he cannot trust the motives of those he serves. He has too many questions and they must be answered. 

Kaeleigh, a girl abandoned as a small child just outside Missoula, Montana, is now 18. She is trying to discover who she is and where she belongs. In her heart, she feels she has family out there… somewhere. Desperate to unravel the mysteries of her past, she embarks on a journey that will forever change her along with her two best friends, Finn and Chel—who have secrets of their own.



Veiled Shadows (The Age of Alandria: Book 2)
Out Now!
Blurb:
Shadows linger where light is obstructed, and truth is veiled. 
Evil is an untreated disease in the once beautiful realm of Alandria. 

Kaeleigh is faced with a revelation that she must reconcile. She will decide if discovering the truth is worth the unknown consequences to both herself and her friends. 

Daegan, the Ferrishyn warrior, is conflicted by more than his loyalties, and is confronted with emotions he doesn’t know how to deal with. A choice must be made. A choice… that may cost him more than he ever wanted to give. 

The Droch-Shúil—enforcers and servants of the ancient darkness—continue to cast their shadow over Alandria seeking those who can be turned to their side. 

The magic of The Orchids is growing, but not everyone will survive what is to come. 

Veiled Shadows is the second installment in The Age of Alandria series: the story of the Sol-lumieth’s quest for freedom of self and the power to battle the evil of the Droch-Shúil.

All Falls Down by Ayden K. Morgen

All Falls Down
By: Ayden K. Morgen




Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 329        

50% of release day proceeds from All Falls Down will go to the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH), a 24/7 toll-free hotline connecting domestic abuse victims with services and support all across the United States, in honor of Cassie M. Combs.

Summary:

When Savannah Martin walks in on her abusive boyfriend and her best friend in bed together, she thinks life can't possibly get any worse. And then she wakes up in a hospital in Italy, scared and alone. With nowhere left to go, Savannah runs to the family who took her in when her mother abandoned her as a teenager.

But things aren't as simple as they were then.

For starters, two years of constant emotional and verbal abuse has broken Savannah in ways she's not sure can be repaired. And patriarch Matthew Talbot has been murdered, leaving his eldest daughter, Lexi, in charge of a global non-profit and her younger sisters.

Jared Corbit, Lexi's gorgeous boyfriend, is the only thing standing between her and whoever murdered her father. That doesn't stop Savannah from falling in love with him. She knows it's wrong, but she just can't stay away from him when he makes he feel like no one else ever has before.

Finding out his relationship with Lexi is a ruse should make things easier, but when the truth is finally revealed, Savannah's fragile world threatens to fall apart. There's a murderer on the loose, and he's gunning for the only family she has. To save their lives, she and Jared will be forced to make a decision that just might destroy her completely.

How is she supposed to let the man she loves be with another woman? 

All Falls Down is available at Amazon
Add to your TBR list on Goodreads.

Excerpt: 

"Savannah, wait," Jared calls, grabbing my arm when I fling the front door open and step out. He pulls the door closed behind us before releasing me.
I immediately start walking again. My heart races and my left eye does that twitching thing it does when I'm about to cry. I just want to be away from him, away from me, away from wanting things I have no right to want from him.
He doesn't take the hint though and jogs down the steps after me.
"Jared, please," I whisper when he catches up to me. The wind is blowing hard, another storm moving in. I wish it would just blow me away. I could live in Oz with Dorothy and Toto. Adventures. Munchkins. Yeah, I could do that. "Let me go. Please, just let me go."
I'm not sure if I'm pleading with Jared or if I'm begging God to sweep me away with the wind, but neither listens to me.
"Savannah, stop," Jared says, grabbing my arm again.
I jerk to a stop, flinching away from him and the shock of his skin on mine. He takes my reaction for fear and immediately lets me go. Regret and guilt dance through his expression, wrecking me.
Tears start trickling down my cheeks.
I'm so tired.
I'm tired of barely sleeping.
I'm tired of avoiding him.
I'm tired of feeling guilty.
I'm just tired.
"Savannah," he breathes, his eyes widening when he notices my tears. He lifts his hand and it hovers in the air between us as if he can't decide if he should touch me again or not.
I sniffle.
He reaches out and grabs me instantly, pulling me in to him. And I go. Willingly.
My head nestles into the hard warmth of his chest. He wraps his arms around me, his head settling atop mine. For a minute, everything is perfect. All the guilt and doubts and self-loathing vanish, and it's just me and him. We both sigh in relief, in regret… and then I start crying in earnest.
"Shh, beautiful girl," he croons, running his hands up and down my back.
His touch is gentle, soothing, complete perfection. And so wrong.
Everything is just so wrong with this.
"Let me go," I cry and try to push away from him.
He shushes me again, refusing to let me pull away.
It doesn't scare me, but I fight harder.
I can't do this with him. I can't.
"You're okay," he soothes and I realize that I'm saying it out loud. Crying over and over again that I can't do this.
A sob catches in my throat and I slump against him, defeated.
"You're okay," he says again, rocking us back and forth.
For just a minute, I let myself believe him. I sink into his embrace. His warmth surrounds me. His heart hammers against mine. He smells so good, and I feel so safe, so secure.
"Why does this feel so right?"
I'm not sure if I'm even meant to hear his question, but I do. And I have no answer.
For just a minute, I don't want one. I just want… him.
Oh God, what am I doing?

River's Revenge - Book 3 of The Sanctuary Series - Available Now

I'm so excited to announce that River's Revenge is finally available.


Buy it now at AmazonBarnes & Noble or iTunes.


Jonathan and River are reunited but must hide the true nature of their relationship until all the carefully woven lies supporting the revolution start to unravel. Nothing but the truth can save them. Not only must they convince the citizens of New Eden that the prophecy is real, they must also prove Jonathan is the true son of Ephraim or face certain execution.



An excerpt from River's Revenge
River clung to Jonathan. They’d had five days together alone in the cave but now it was time to leave. Gabriel and Eli were waiting for them at the bottom of the cliff.
Gabriel would take Jonathan home to Reuben’s ranch. She’d go to Sanctuary Mountain with Eli.
Jonathan pressed his forehead against hers. “I don’t want to let you go.”
“I know.” She couldn’t let him see how hard this was for her or he wouldn’t let her go. “It’s only for a few weeks.”
“But you’ll be with him.” Jonathan growled the word.
River knew he was worried about the blood bond she shared with Eli. “I’ll be fine.”
“I can’t stand the thought of him touching you.”
She cupped his cheeks with her palms as she leaned back. “I won’t let him touch me when we’re alone, but Eli and I have to convince everyone that we’re a mated pair. So we’re going to have to at least hold hands in public.”
“That stupid blood bond should help sell the deception.”
“It will.”
Jonathan groaned. “Is that supposed to make me feel better?”
“No, but hopefully this will.” River pressed her lips to his.
Jonathan tangled his fingers in her hair and took control of the kiss. He hooked his forearm around the small of her back then jerked her body against his.
River’s eyes fluttered shut.
“Hey! What’s taking so long?” Eli’s shout intruded.
River pulled back then gave Jonathan a quick peck on the mouth. “We need to leave before he decides to climb up here and get us.”
“Let him.” Jonathan’s eyes still glowed with his wolf’s light. “It’ll take him at least an hour with that bum knee of his.”
“Jonathan.” River smiled and shook her head. “That’s not very nice.”
“I can think of all sorts of nice things to do while we wait.”
Gabriel’s form suddenly filled the opening of the cave, blocking the light. He shouted, “Jonathan!” then ran inside. He wrapped his long, muscular arms around Jonathan and River then squeezed the air out of both of them.
Jonathan grunted then laughed. “Hey, Gabe. It’s good to see you, too.”
Gabriel squeezed them even tighter. “I’m so glad you aren’t dead.”

Jonathan laughed again. “Me too.”
