*we still have no cover, so I’ll just leave the blurb for this one and the goodreads link!*
As her fingers move across the strings of her family’s heirloom harp, sixteen-year-old Clarion can forget. She doesn’t dwell on the recent passing of her beloved father or the fact that her mother has just sold everything they owned, including that very same instrument that gives Clarion life. She doesn’t think about how her friends treat her like a feeble, brittle thing to be protected. She doesn’t worry about how to tell the elegant Elena, her best friend and first love, that she doesn’t want to be her sweetheart anymore. She becomes the melody and loses herself in the song.
When Mack, a lord’s dashing young son, rides into town so his father and Elena’s can arrange a marriage between the two youth, Clarion finds herself falling in love with a boy for the first time. Drawn to Clarion’s music, Mack puts Clarion and Elena’s relationship to the test, but he soon vanishes by climbing up a giant beanstalk that only Clarion has seen. When even the town witch won’t help, Clarion is determined to rescue Mack herself and prove once and for all that she doesn’t need protecting. But while she fancied herself a savior, she couldn’t have imagined the enormous world of danger that awaits her in the kingdom of the clouds.
Casey has a new book in town and I’m sooo excited for this frenemies romance ❤

Demelza just shared with us her upcoming release for January: Enchanted! Do I need to tell you that it is a fairy-tale retelling? 😉
Release date: Jan. 05th
We just met through the newsletter of Lovelight Press new releases and OMG HER NEW BOOK SOUNDS AWESOME!
- Crash Into You, Roller Derby Romance #1
Release date: Dec. 30th, 2016
First of all, Joy revealed to us this week that she is actually… AMY MCNULTY! =O Amy decided it was best to “combine” her marketing efforts for both writing names, hence the big revelation ❤ I already knew it, as I’m proud to call Amy an awesome online friend, but I’m so happy to know she is out to the world, haha! (Sorry, that sounded SO. WRONG.)
Anyway, in other news, A Love for The Pages and A Love for The Mistletoe got new covers!
- A Love For The Pages
Release date: June 14th, 2014
Amy’s thoughts on the cover change:
“A Love for the Pages is now on its third (and hopefully final!) cover, giving a better view of the main couple of the story, June and Rockford.”
I personally loved the old cover, but the new one isn’t bad at all =O
- A Love For The Mistletoe
Published on Wattpad, Dec. 1st, 2014
Amy didn’t explain this change, but I believe she wanted to “brand” the series covers, if that makes sense? Haha! I did like this new cover better, as the title is more legible =)
I’ve met Kristi later last year through the Instafreebie craziness that took over my mailbox, haha! She just showed us the cover for her upcoming cowboy romance and my breath was stolen, haha! We don’t have a page on Goodreads for the book, so I’ll leave the blurb bellow this time =)
- The Cowboy Takes a Bride
Available on Jan. 19th
A modern day girl resorts to a classic solution
Meredith Hanover wants out. Living with the whims and demands of her despotic father has left her isolated from others and lonely. She has no life and the only solution is to get away and start again on her own. Having lost all hope she takes an offer to become a modern day mail order bride.
Jace Shepard’s father is dying. And despite the fact that Jace has already stepped up to run the family cattle ranch, his father isn’t content. The old man’s one request is to see his son settled with a wife. Too bad there’s no one in his small Wyoming town Jace wants to marry. Desperate to see his father happy, Jace hires a professional matchmaker. Not a believer in happily ever after, Jace will settle for the duration of his father’s life.
Striking a deal, Meredith and Jace marry with no intention of making it permanent. She’ll get away from her father and a chance to figure out her next move and he’ll get his wife. What could possibly go wrong?
I’ve already read two books from Liv (you can read here my review for Dragon Sun, from her) and I can say securely that anything she writes, I’m game to read. That said, she has a new book in town AND I MUST OWN IT.
- Wild City Life, Shifters At the End of the World #1
