CAPTURING THE DEVIL
(Stalking Jack the Ripper #4)
JIMMY Patterson / September 10, 2019
In the shocking finale to the bestselling series that began with Stalking Jack the Ripper, Audrey Rose and Thomas are on the hunt for the depraved, elusive killer known as the White City Devil. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse has them fighting to stay one step ahead of the brilliant serial killer—or see their fateful romance cut short by unspeakable tragedy.
(The Lost Princesses #2)
Northern Lights Press / September 24, 2019
A second princess. Another key to the treasure. And a cruel king desperate to squelch the growing rebellion. Raised in an isolated abbey, Lady Maribel desires nothing more than to become a nun and continue practicing her healing arts. She’s carefree and happy with her life…until a visitor comes to the abbey and reveals her true identity as one of the lost princesses. When King Ethelwulf’s army arrives at the abbey to capture Maribel, she flees with Edmund Chambers across the desolate Highlands in an attempt to reach Adelaide’s rebel army. Edmund can no longer hide his love for her, but can Maribel give up her dreams of becoming a nun to love him in return?
HEART OF A ROYAL
(Daughters of Peverell #1)
WhiteSpark Publishing / October 15, 2019
Brought to the palace as a newborn, the royal life bestowed upon Mackenna Sparrow was never meant to last forever. With Princess Alina engaged to be married, Mackenna’s presence as companion is no longer required and, like it or not, she must return to the birthright which should have been hers – that of a commoner. But not everyone at the palace wants her gone. When the truths she’s based her life on start crumbling as fast as her future, will she find the courage to trust – both herself and the prince she’s fallen in love with?
(The Lost Princesses #3)
Northern Lights Press / October 29, 2019
The third lost princess. The final key to the treasure. And a battle for the throne. Growing up deep in the forest as a poor charcoal burner’s daughter, Emmeline has always known her identity as a princess of Mercia, and she lives in fear of being caught and killed. When her adopted father returns from town with news regarding the imminence of war, Emmeline has no wish to join the rebellion against King Ethelwulf. Forced into marriage with Prince Ethelrex, Emmeline has one goal—to escape. But Ethelrex takes his marriage vows seriously, including his promise to love and cherish his wife, and has no intention of letting Emmeline get away. As the battle for the throne rages, will the prince be able to win the battle for Emmeline’s heart?
Thomas Nelson / November 12, 2019
There is more than one way to drown. When the worlds of three struggling teens (including one mermaid) collide, all three will do whatever it takes to survive, and Coral might even catch a prince in the process. But what—and who—must they leave behind for life to finally begin? Taking a new twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved—yet tragic—fairy tale, Coral explores mental health from multiple perspectives, questioning what it means to be human in a world where humanity often seems lost.
THE PIPER’S PURSUIT
Thomas Nelson / December 3, 2019
In 1424 Hamlin, Katerina faces threats from all sides. An outbreak of rats has overtaken the town, a mysterious beast of unusual size appears to be stealing away the village’s children, and her stepfather, the mayor of Hamlin, is a dark presence inside the walls of her own home. Katerina is determined to hunt and kill the Beast of Hamlin herself before more lives are lost. When Steffan, the handsome but brash duke’s son with a less than admirable reputation, comes to town seeking glory and reward, Katerina reluctantly decides he might be the ally she’s been looking for. But there’s more to Steffan than she suspects, and she finds herself drawn to him despite her reluctance to trust any man.
An Austentacious Romance
HarperTeen / December 3, 2019
Lady Victoria Aston has everything she could want: an older sister happily wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to while her time away in the fields around her home. But now Vicky must marry—or find herself and her family destitute. Armed only with the wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she enters society’s treacherous season. Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky’s exact circumstances. Most unfortunately of all, Vicky’s books are silent on the topic of the mysterious accidents cropping up around her…ones that could prevent her from surviving until her wedding day.
BRAND OF LIGHT
(The Droseran Saga #1)
Enclave / December 3, 2019
There’s a price on her head, and it has everything to do with the brand on her arm. After a catastrophic explosion, Kersei Dragoumis awakens in a derelict shuttle, alone, injured, and ignorant of the forbidden technology that has swept her into a nightmare. The brand she’s borne since childhood burns mysteriously, but the pain is nothing to that when she learns her family is dead and she is accused of their murders. Across the quadrants, Marco Dusan responds to the call of a holy order-not to join them, but to seek a bounty. Gifted-or cursed-with abilities that mark him a Kynigos, a tracker sworn to bring interplanetary fugitives to justice, Marco discovers this particular bounty has nothing to do with justice and everything to do with prophecy. One that involves the hunter as much as the hunted.
