Sometimes following your heart can end up destroying the ones you love.
When seventeen-year-old Eviana Dumahl is faced with the responsibility of an arranged marriage and clan leadership, she is forced to choose between the life required of a mermaid and one of a teenage girl simply infatuated with the wrong guy. Kain, her devoted fiancé would make a wonderful husband except that she’s been in love with Brendan, a shape-shifting selkie, ever since they were kids. Choosing to abandon her family, her clan, and her life with Kain will have dire consequences far beyond anything she could have imagined.
A war is brewing amongst the clans and Eviana unwittingly becomes a pawn in the intricate schemes of a twisted mastermind. With Brendan’s life on the line, she has no choice but to involve those who she once considered friends. Amidst encountering senseless tragedies and immense loss, Eviana discovers that she is more valuable as a clan leader than anyone ever suspected. Her survival is not only dependent upon the loyalty of her friends, but also on her acceptance of a life that she had so adamantly tried to escape.
Promises is the first book of The Syrenka Series trilogy following Eviana and her friends through the perils of growing up in a discrete world that inherently threatens human society.

Today is the cover reveal for Soul of Flame (Imdalind #4) by Rebecca Ethington!
Soul of Flame is releasing on December 2, 2013
The Time for the final battle has come.
Edmund's armies have surrounded the Rioseco Abbey, trapping the few survivors inside. The sight that Ilyan was given a thousand years ago is about to come to pass.
If only Joclyn was able to fight.
Joclyn is tormented by the hallucinations that Cail’s mind has left her with, her magic an uncontrollable torrent that even Ilyan cannot control. Her moments of lucidity are broken by fears of dripping pipes and bleeding walls, and a desire to kill Ryland that she is trying to ignore.
Love may be the only key to her sanity, to her strength, and to Edmund's death.
But that love may stand in her way, and a single choice may tip the scales and secure their future, or destroy their fate.
Rebecca Ethington has been telling stories since she was small. First, with writing crude scripts, and then in stage with years of theatrical performances. The Imdalind Series is her first stint into the world of literary writing. Rebecca is a mother to two, and wife to her best friend of 14 years. She was born and raised in the mountains of Salt Lake City, and hasn't found the desire to leave yet. Her days are spent writing, running, and enjoying life with her amazing family.
meets, and quickly falls in love with, Beau Brogan, who seems to be perfect in
the fact that he died in 1910…
Malyn Reed has been able to see spirits her entire
life. Now that she’s almost seventeen, she has learned to differentiate between
the living and the dead, making her gift feel less like an evil curse. She
ignores the spirits she encounters on a daily basis, which has made living side
by side with them slightly easier…until she moves to Dandridge, the second
oldest town in Tennessee.
Beau Brogan was a hard working country boy from
Dandridge, Tennessee who loved his family and stole the hearts of many southern
belles. But all of that came to a tragic halt at the age of nineteen when his
life came to an untimely end. For the past hundred years, his spirit has been
entombed in a ghostly life of loneliness and misery that he wishes would just
end…until the Reeds move in.
Janae has been a writer since she was old enough to hold a
pencil. Her genre of choice was poetry and short stories—until now. After
falling in love with so many books over the past decade, she decided that she
wanted to write a novel of her own and bring life to the characters that haunt
her mind. It wasn't until 2012 that she pursued that passion and started on her
first YA novel. 115,000 words later, For Always was born.
Having grown up in an historical Dandridge home that was
used as slave quarters during the Civil War, she experienced several things
that couldn't be explained. Due to these events, she sought out and joined an
investigative team called Eyewitness Paranormal. Her interest in ghosts and the
unexplained, combined with her love for telling a story, made writing the For
Always series inevitable.
Janae was born and raised in East Tennessee, where she
currently resides with her husband, two children, and their hairless dog,
Slick. In her spare time, she likes to read, play tennis, and spend time with
her family on the lake.
In order to reunite the Council and save both our world and theirs, the Guardians need to assemble three missing pieces of an ancient relic called The Shoma. But their search is derailed by their love lives and entanglements. Surrounded by evil and under the threat of annihilation our lives depend on this one team. But with all the sex, scandal and secrets, who has time to save the world?

Book 1: The Girl
The prophecy says I will fall in love with team leader and Angel, Marcus Cane. The prophecy also says that our love will cause his mission to fail and end the world.
This human is not worried. Why?
Because I do not intend to fall in love with Marcus.
The truth is I hate him. I hate his warm brown eyes with flecks of gold, his chiseled face and broad shoulders.
I hate how over protective he is just because a few thousand demons are after me.
In fact, I couldn't care less about Marcus or his perfect telekinetic girlfriend.
And when I see him holding her, I don’t die a little inside…
Just because she has wings,
doesn’t mean she’s an Angel…
It's front page news on every Angel gossip rag:“Marcus & Ameana: Gone The Way Of “Brad & Jennifer.”So, Who Is The “Angelina?” Emmy Baxter—a mere mortal!”
Ameana tries to avoid her ex and his new love by focusing
on the other evil out to destroy the team. But soon her pain
turns to fury.
And before the end…a girl plots revenge, a leader is on the edge
and an Angel falls.
