Want has been such a hit with readers that they demanded a sequel. The characters in Want, Juli and Isaac were compelling which drew the readers into the characters' lives. Today, we are excited to present~ Need, A Want Companion Novel!
When a book is released, it's an exciting time for the author but more so for the readers who can't wait to find out what their favorite characters have been up to! Today our readers are going to delve into Isaac's life after walking away from Juli and learn more about the kind of person he is.
But WARNING~ Need isn't a YA novel. It features some grown up romance, steamy passion, and certainly a few kleenexes!
Isaac Laroche is cursed. All he wants to do is hide out and feel sorry for himself. Never mind that he got caught sleeping with his seventeen-year-old piano student, or that he abandoned her when the truth was exposed.
Isaac’s feisty high school sweetheart has different plans. Heather Swann has returned to their hometown of Mobile, Alabama, to regroup after breaking up with her troll of a fiancé. She’s restless and looking for a diversion, but she bites off more than she can chew when she sets her sights on rehabilitating Isaac with her unorthodox sexual, mental, and physical plans.
The two quickly reconnect, but their happiness is threatened by family secrets, old vendettas and the death of a beloved father-figure.
Can Heather handle Isaac’s baggage, or will her own come back to haunt them both?

About the Author:
As a child, Kristy used to lose herself in an imaginary world by the means of a good book. Now that she’s all grown up, she gets to create her own fictional realms and make them come to life in ways that most readers might not expect.
Writing has always been a passion of hers but she never had the opportunity do so until now. After trying out numerous options, she realized that writing was what she loved the most and so she decided to give it a shot. As it turns out, her very active imagination helped her achieve her goals of creating believable plots with some ordinary, and some not so ordinary characters that move the stories along in one way or another.
As she keeps achieving her dreams of becoming a published author, she divides her time in between four children and a very understanding husband.
Birthdays are wonderful days to celebrate a new story! At Inkspell we are so proud to share with you Aubrie Dionne's latest young adult science fiction story about life on Paradise. If you thought the plants were out to kill the colonists wait until you see what else is on this planet!
Nova Williams has lost her one shot at Lieutenanthood and at love. Lieutenant Crophaven has promoted her rival, Andromeda, all because her lifemate, Sirius, sacrificed their mission to win back Andromeda’s love.
While sneaking out to prove Andromeda is a fake, Nova finds an alien ship hovering over their colony. Lieutenant Crophaven assigns her to a reconnaissance mission, giving her a second chance to redeem herself. Sirius must fly her and a research team to the vessel to decide if they are a threat. Thrown together with the lifemate that betrayed her, she battles with her own jealousy while her team battles for their lives.
Can she forgive Sirius in order to save her team and warn her colony?
A drone, as deep and low as the growl of a primordial beast, resonated in my gut and I yanked my hand away. My heart sped like someone had fired a starter gun to a race, and my chest tightened until I couldn’t breathe.
That blaring blasphemy wasn’t from my ship.
The sound tapered off, leaving me in silence. I stared at the bones, wondering if I’d imagined it, or if I should hide here in the ruins in case the sound came back.
What am I doing? I’m a team expedition leader, for crying out loud!
I pulled myself back together. Everyone else was attending the ceremony on the ship. The thick hull, designed to protect us from deep space, blocked all sounds from the outside world. I was the only one who would have heard it. The only one who could investigate. I thought about going back for help, but every second I delayed, the source of the sound could disappear. Besides, I didn’t want the credit taken away from me. Not this time.
I scrambled to the window and climbed over the ledge, throwing myself down so fast my ankles exploded in pain. Cursing, I hobbled up the embankment of the excavation site. The sound boomed around me, vibrating the crystals underneath my feet. I fell to my knees and covered my ears. It reminded me of warping metal, growling monsters, and screeching alarms all at the same time.
The sound came from the jungle. I pulled myself up the incline and peered over the edge. A dry, fiery breeze blew my hair back, and I looked above the rustling canopy.
My heart stammered then beat into a frenzy. A massive ring of a ship, twice as large as the New Dawn, hovered over the jungle. Spires jutted from the top and the bottom, like a two-sided pin cushion. Blinking reddish lights adorned the ends. The hull was a dull gray shield of impenetrable metal with no sight panels or markings of any kind.
The buzzing sound made my eardrums throb. I pressed my nose up against the crystal ledge and peered over as my whole body shook. The lowest spire, thick as a nuclear reactor, lengthened from the belly of the ship until the tip hovered a meter from the jungle canopy. A trap door opened, and a beam of white light seared a hole in the foliage. The smell of burnt vines choked my throat, and I cowered against the side of the ledge.
I have to warn the ship.

As each birthday passes, we become older and wiser. However, vampires don't age like we do. Since Lily has become a vampire and gotten married, we've waited patiently for the rest of her story. Today is that happy day when we finally get to read Lily Drake's second book! T. Michelle Nelson has created a character that isn't the usual simpering wallflower but is a strong woman...a mom...who has found the man who promised her a "happily forever after".
With a doting husband and a new job training a vampire military, Lily Drake was living up to the prophecies of being the best. Her life was seemingly perfect, until tragedy strikes bringing her a loss she's not sure she can endure.
The hard-working super mom / vampire slayer, Lily Drake, has just learned problems still exist even after you become immortal.
As everyone knows, even if you find your soul mate, you don't always get a happily-ever-after. Lily may have found temporary happiness being a newlywed, but the honeymoon is over. When she finds her husband going out for late night bites with another woman, Lily has to fight to try and regain what she wants most, love and a happy family.
If Lily thought being a single mom was hard, she’ll find being married can be a bloody mess.
After a romantic dinner at The Cove, Mount Vernon’s finest restaurant, Lily was not only stuffed but sleepy. She reluctantly changed into her hunting clothes, strapped on her custom-made sword and pulled her hair up into a tight ponytail. As she looked in the mirror, she caught the reflection of her delectable husband lounging on the bed behind her, watching her every move.
Stretched out like a lounging predator, Valentine smiled when he realized she was watching him. His infectious smile and irresistible laugh had made Lily fall in love with him. From the moment she’d laid eyes on him, she’d known he was trouble. She just never dreamed that trouble would be all hers.
“How am I supposed to leave when you look as delicious as that steak dinner I just had?”
“I think you’re supposed to wait thirty minutes before vigorous exercise. Just think of it as biding some time and hurry up and get back home to me.” He wagged his eyebrows.
“I feel like I’m neglecting you and Keaton with all this work Rose has thrown on me.”
“Baby, it’s important. I know that. When these recruits leave, we’ll tell her we need to take a family vacation and I’ll spend so much time with you that you’ll sicken at the sight of me!”
“Not possible, but that’s a deal. Talk to Keaton tonight and figure out where you guys want to go. I should get moving. I don’t want your cousin to make me look bad.”
Val chuckled. “We’ve already decided. I want to take you to New Orleans. As much as you love good food, you’ll never want to leave there. And baby, remember, training the recruits isn’t a competition.” Val paused, then crowed. “Well, with you and Matty, it’s always a competition. Regardless, please be careful tonight.”
Before Lily could do more than narrow her eyes at him, he continued, “I know you’re badass, darling. But you’re still my wife, and I worry. Be careful for me.”
Lily leaned down and gave her husband a light kiss on the lips and agreed. She knew what it was like to have confidence in a mate’s abilities, yet still worry. She was concerned about him every night he left the house to hunt.

| GoodreadsWhen all is lost, he will have to make the ultimate decision.
Kellen St. James was just your average seventeen-year-old prodigy, until he eighty-sixed the Lord of Faerie and proposed to the Celtic Goddess, Calienta. But then everything in Kellen’s life gets turned upside-down when he and Cali end up on the run from a seriously irritated group of faeries. The worst part? They have zero idea why they’re being hunted.
Suddenly, Kellen is stuck in the middle of another prophecy that foresees him turning away from Calienta and embracing the dark. He’ll be forced to take sides in a struggle to claim his birthright, while discovering secrets about his father’s past. Meanwhile, his passion for Cali grows stronger, even as the prophecy threatens to tear them apart.In the end, will Kellen and Cali survive the fates? When the ultimate power is within reach, which side will he choose?
Excerpt“Kellen, come on,” Gabe said, grabbing my hand, his other hand on Alistair’s arm.Unarmed, I had enough common sense to realize when I needed to take cover. Staying hunched over, the three of us made our way to a series of boulders at the edge of the lawn and took shelter.Gabe’s face held a look of confusion. Despite our situation, I couldn’t help feeling guilty. I’d never told him about Calienta’s identity, about Faerie, about…anything. Man, he was gonna be pissed. I didn’t even want to think about what Alistair was going to have to say about it.“Man, what is up with these EMO freaks? And what the H is going on, K?” Gabe asked.“Yes, Kellen, what…what he said,” Alistair demanded, actually appearing to turn maroon in color.Peering over the rock, I crouched down again just as a portion of it exploded, missing my head by inches. “This really isn’t the best time,” I said, keeping as low as possible behind the rock while still sneaking peeks to try and find Calienta. Then I located her, fighting directly in the middle of the action.She shot a wall of water at Cana and some of the other creatures, dousing the flames that resulted from their offense. The intense sound of a raging waterfall filled the vicinity as she fought back. Her defensive tactic appeared to be working at first, until Cana froze the water and it exploded into hundreds of jagged pieces—pieces that headed straight for Calienta.Calienta knew how to protect herself. I understood that, but I refused to hide behind a rock any longer while she risked her life. Launching myself out from behind the boulder, I grabbed her hand and pulled her to safety just as the ice would have hurt her. Alistair and Gabe scrambled to make room. Calienta crouched down behind the rocks with me. Mud stained the bottom of her beautiful dress.Calienta puffed a strand of hair out of her eyes and scowled at me. “You know, I had a plan, Kellen.” She sounded ticked, despite the lilt of Ireland in her voice.Though she made no secret of how I’d pissed her off, we both knew that I’d already sensed her feelings. All I had to do was to be near her and I would be able to recognize her emotions as strongly as if they were my own. That’s how I’d recognized that her love for me carried the same weight as mine did for her.“Maybe,” I said, “but I have plans too, and they all involve you. So let’s cut the Indiana Jones routine for the time being, if that’s okay.”Thank you to all the people who are taking part in this tour!Date

Don't forget to see how Kellen's and Cali's Love Story began!
The world is about to be cloaked in darkness.
Only one can stop the night.
Kellen St. James has spent his entire life being overlooked as an unwanted, ordinary, slightly geeky kid. That is until a beautiful girl, one who has haunted his dreams for the past eleven years of his life, shows up spinning
tales of a prophecy. Not just any old prophecy either, but one in which Kellen plays a key role.
Suddenly, Kellen finds himself on the run through a Celtic underworld of faeries and demons, angels and gods, not to mention a really ticked off pack of hellhounds, all in order to save the world from darkness. But will they make it in time?
