The Spirit of the Wolf

Author: Karen Kay  The Spirit of the Wolf

The end of a curse hides behind a riddle—and the final clue in the heart of a woman.
The Lost Clan, Book 2
Grey Coyote stands on the knife-edge of desperation. An ancient curse dooms his people to a half-life in the mists, neither living nor dead—unless he can solve a deceptively simple riddle. As time runs short, he’s sure the answer lies in beating a white trapper in a game of chance.
Among the trapper’s possessions, though, is a prize he never expected: A golden-haired woman as beautiful, delicate and stubborn as a prairie rose.
One moment Marietta Welsford is wondering how long it will take her hired guide to finish his game so she can hurry home to Rosemead, the English estate to which she hopes to lay claim. The next, she is abandoned with a man whose magnetism tugs at her body and soul, and makes her heart out-thunder the storm.
With so little time to lift the enchantment, Grey Coyote at first views Marietta as a trickster-sent distraction. But as sure as the star that guides him, it soon becomes clear she is the clue that could ultimately free his people…and capture his heart.    
Warning: Sensuous love scenes and unsolvable riddles might cause sleepless nights filled with unbridled passion

Being Proud, Not Loud

Being Proud, Not Loud Author: Myrna Fay Flick 

Review from a teacher: 

Highly engaging!

I read Being Silly, Not a Bully to my 1st graders. It is the first one in the Discovering The Difference series and a short chapter book that is highly engaging. The children were buzzing about the topics and had a lot in common with the characters. Using the questions in the back, we had a lively discussion.  Not only did they learn more about standing up for themselves and others, they learned about being kind and accepting others regardless of culture and ethnicity. I was lucky enough to have Myrna available online to talk with my students and answer questions. This was quite a treat and an amazing experience for them!  All of my future students will enjoy more books in the series. Myrna is truly an amazing author!

CORA

CORA Author: A.L. Hawke 

Cora has it all, but she doesnt have a man. They keep dying on her.

She is the immortal Greek goddess Persephone, drinking and reveling in a Malibu beach house in the twenty-first century. But no matter her wild antics or psychotherapy, nothing can ease the pain over her latest husbands murder. Except perhaps the prudish but handsome Mr. Gabriel Cartwright.

Gabe is a young East Coast realtor whos hired to transfer her things to her new home in Toronto. Cora likes him. He has such a kind and sweet heart. But her lover holds secrets. He is a member of a nymph race that Imada, an ancient order of gods, has been hunting to extinction; a race Persephone has fought millennia to protect. Thats why she hired him. She wants to be close to him. She wants to care for him. Only Imada cares for Gabriel toothey want him dead.

Cora will protect her man or tear Imada apart trying.

Content warning: CORA features a goddess who enjoys bad language, romance, and sexual situations. Although Cora is the same goddess as Persephone four thousand years earlier in A.L. Hawke's Cora: Rise of the Fallen Goddess, this contemporary urban fantasy is suited for an adult audience.

Before Columbus discovered America, Conchobar washed ashore! A young man is lost at sea and survives a terrifying ordeal only to arrive in a new land with nothing but his memories. His father abandoned him and left him with a curse. His mother gave him a name befitting a king, then died during childbirth. The monks of Skellig Michael raised him to be a pacifist and prepared him for life as a mason, not for the harsh realities of a fierce new world. Conchobar is rescued by one village, captured by another, and becomes a pawn in their never-ending war. Banished by one, condemned by the other, he must become a warrior. In addition to the enemy villages, he must fight the curse that follows him wherever he goes. He discovers that he has the gift of telepathy. Will his extrasensory perceptions be enough to break the curse? Conchobar must adapt or die. Evil surrounds him and there is no going back. The Adirondack Spirit Series is an epic, multi-generational family saga, and it all starts with this ancient ancestor, Conchobar. Are supernatural tendencies hereditary? If you guessed yes, maybe you are descended from old souls too. The year is AD 549. Start your Adirondack adventure with The Curse of Conchobar―A Prequel to the Adirondack Spirit Series.
