Long Live: An Elemental Magic Fantasy Romance (August 1)
Since losing her mom and the man she loved, all Isla Belthare wants is peace and quiet. But when an attack on her family forces her to travel to the Aataran mountains, she crosses paths with a powerful elemental being.
When Isla discovers her fate may be entwined in an epic battle against a dark, unknown force, she must choose between protecting her family and sacrificing it all to stop the deadly enemy.

A Dance of Blood and Destiny (August 8)
Eighteen-year-old Princess Kaia is done bending to the will of her overbearing mother. She'd rather be open about her love for her forbidden vampire boyfriend than be forced to marry an elven prince.

You'll find forbidden love, African mythology-inspired fae, dragons and a mystery plot in this fantasy tale.
