Barren

Now available! Barren by Anna Hedley

All the women of Yarn have died. King Daniel sends out his twelfth best warrior, Blair. But having learned from the first eleven that warriors aren’t to be trusted, he orders Ren, scholar and advisor, to go with him.

Blair thinks the Amorphous, a race of formless and seemingly omniscient beings, know more about the death of the women than they’re saying. Ren suspects Blair’s prejudices are skewing his judgment, and they’re looking in the wrong place.

If they’re going to solve the mystery and set Yarn right, it’s going to take understanding on both their parts.

Iced Out

Now available! Iced Out by K.M. Penemue

Signal takes the job because the CIA doesn’t want to.

Signal’s primary duty is to follow up on small or incomplete leads given to the U.S. government. This time, the lead could be big: Sex trafficking in Macau, China, with an American working behind casino owner James Song.

Drake is sent to the glamorous Diamonds Hotel and Casino to look for evidence. While there, he meets Victor Mason. Victor is pleasant, handsome, and just happens to match the vague description of the American Drake is looking for.

But in the colorful, glittering casino world, nothing is quite what it seems. The enigmatic James Song certainly isn’t, and Drake is quickly running out of time to sort lies from truth.
