Shadow of the Raven (Sons of Kings Book 1) (affiliate link)
By the mid ninth century, Danish raids on Anglo-Saxon kingdoms have escalated. Several bands even dare to overwinter on the coastal islands, particularly those at the mouth of the Thames, where the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia border each other. The kings of these lands must put past hostilities aside and take the first steps towards unity; steps they see as vital in the face of this newfound threat to their lands.
Alfred of Wessex and Eadwulf of Mercia are the sons of kings, whose futures have been determined since birth. But the turbulent events in their childhood years change the natural progression of things and shape the characters of the men they will become. Their roads to manhood follow vastly different routes, but both learn crucial lessons along the way: lessons that will serve them well in future years.
It’s Christmas and a quirky Romanian chocolatier shows up at Sweet’s Sweets, offering to create a special line of hand-dipped chocolates for Samantha’s customers. He says he will work for no pay, just to prove himself. But when she learns that he has connections to the wooden box which seems to give Sam her mystical powers, she discovers that certain evil people may do just about anything to take it away from her.
With the same combination of mystery, romance and that touch of the paranormal for which the series has become known, Sweet Holidays carries the reader into the special and magical world of northern New Mexico at the holiday season.
Unborn: A Dark Slow Burn Urban Fantasy (The Unborn Book 1) (affiliate link)
I was born into mystery—then shackled to darkness.
As the adopted daughter of Hades, I spent centuries discovering everything there is to know about the Underworld—except my place in it. Then a Dark One tore me from my home, and suddenly, solving the riddle of my origins is a matter of life and death.
While I race toward answers, evil stalks me through the dark alleys and shadowed streets of Detroit, hungry for what I am.
The closer it gets, the tighter necessity binds me to the lost family I discover and the surly fallen angel living in their home. His arrogant and brooding nature is untenable, but there is a fierceness buried deep within that seems to spark where I am concerned. And though I loathe him, I’ll need his help against what hunts me.

System Change: A LitRPG Adventure (System Universe Book 1) (affiliate link)
Fight, survive, adapt, and rely only on yourself.
That is Derek’s creed, and what’s got him through the System Integration on Earth.
Everything changed when the System came. Cute bunnies and beautiful butterflies became savage killing machines. Then the Invaders arrived with a single goal: to obtain ownership of this new habitable planet.
War has raged ever since.
None of this mattered much to Derek, aside from making living a little more perilous. He mostly kept to himself. He was the weird guy who owned a cabin that occasionally came into town for a drink and light conversation. After System Integration, that didn’t change much—he only got stronger.
After years of fighting monsters and Invaders alone he’s become quite adept at surviving. Who needs others to get in the way or worry about?

But she hates my guts for leaving her without a goodbye when we were kids, and I can’t blame her.

I haven’t changed at all.
