Family Saga

Good Morning all! With the Holidays approaching, I've decided to run some Family Saga's today. Maybe you'll find some families here that remind you of yours, or maybe some that are more embarassing than yours... who knows! Enjoy these Family Sagas for free!

Happy Hour
Every woman has that group of friends in her life ~ her "go to girls" The friends that she can turn to who "get it." The ones who are there for you no matter what. The ones who laugh with you and cry with you. The ones that will always be there. These are the women of Napa Valley.

Jamie is the editor-in-chief of Wine Lover's Magazine, a single mother and caretaker to her senile mother-in-law ~ a woman who thinks her daily caregiver is Dean Martin. Jamie is still recovering, financially and emotionally from the death of her husband several years earlier. And when she finds what could be the key to happiness, can she open the door and let it in? Or will her feelings of guilt and betrayal hold her back?

Danielle is a vintner and the divorced mom of two. She's basking in what she knows is going to be a successful launch of her new wines. Wines she created on her own after her divorce. But what she doesn't expect is for her daughter to come home with news that will shock her to her core. Will an old flame help her accept the changes that are coming and find the love she's been missing in her life for so long? Or will a tragedy that no one sees coming change their lives forever?

Kat is a sommelier, co-owner of a magnificent restaurant with her chef husband, and mother of a blended family. But is being deeply in love with your husband enough to get them through the teenage years, step-children and exes? And what happens when old faces return and she's faced with the knowledge that not everything is what you thought it was. What happens when she finds she was mad at the wrong person and finds out the "right one" was in the wrong? Can she forgive and move on? Can love overcome everything and truly bring a family together?

Alyssa is an artist and gallery owner with a secret of her own. One she was hoping would stay buried deep in her closet. But the time has come for her to put someone else first, to face the past and to deal with her demons. What she never expected to find was love and her "home."

No matter what is going on in their own lives, no matter the heartache or joy they're experiencing these four women are always there to love, support and encourage each other.

Prince in the Mist
Fact one: By tradition and treaty, Fae do not interfere with the human world—it is against the rules.

Fact two: For a Royal Fae prince who suffers from the ennui of immortality, watching and interacting with humans—especially lovely, spirited human females—can be entertaining.

Fact three: When entertainment changes to affection, and affection becomes love, rules will be broken.

His name is Breslyn, Prince of Dagda of the Tuatha Dé. He is a royal Fae, immortal and endowed with more than eye candy looks. He is a being with immeasurable powers but life for him lacked something—so he looked around, and found...humans.

Watching their lives and interactions, from another dimension filled him with feelings he had thought long lost in the ennui of immortality. The more he watched--the more addicted to their antics he became. An affection for the human race grew inside the heart Fae are not supposed to have, and it was inevitable that he began to have preferences with regards to them.

In 1314, when Scotland’s rule was in jeopardy and the British were about to take more than they should, he chose a side--and then he saw her, and nothing would ever be the same for the prince ever again…

Their intent is to give her over to their boss who gathers young girls for his traveling brothel. She must escape, but how? If she does get away, how will her family and friends accept her after they find out what has happened to her?

The Billionaire of Aspen Estates
The Billionaire of aspen estates is the first book in a new series by M.D. James. Think of a mixture between Downton Abbey and a V.C. Andrews book and you'll have this first book of the Concord Series. 

Jonas is a pre-teen boy living happily in an orphanage when his long-lost Uncle comes for him. He is transferred to a world of wealth and riches and finally gets to learn all about his mother. But, all is not as it seems. Soon he is running for his life and must find a way to stop those that wish him dead.

The Scion of Abacus, Part 1 (of 6)

The Hymage of Aaria rules an entire continent as its tyrant. For a millennia, the Eikos caste has been subject to him and to the Synths, who consume the powerful hyma drug in order to awaken their ether and work magic. 

Toven Aimis is a poor Eikos boy who passes a test and is taken to be trained as one of the Hymage's Synths. At the University where he is schooled, Toven begins to understand that his ether is quite different than that of the others around him, for he is able to do things with magic that should be impossible.

He finds himself at the center of a thousand-year-old conspiracy, though what his part is in that plot, he does not yet know. What he does know, however, is that he is no mere Synth. A thousand years ago, the true mages died out, but all evidence points to Toven possessing their superhuman ability to manipulate the physical world.

The question now is whether Toven can use his power to right the many wrongs of the Hymage and bring equality and justice to the Aarian Dominion, or whether he will simply become the next in a long line of tyrants. Because power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Approximately 35,000 words, or 140 pages.
