Paperback $14.95

"A skilled knife fighter since the age of nine, Chalice knows what it's like to live life on the edge—precariously balanced between the dark and the light. But the time has come to choose. The evil sorcerer who kidnapped her over a decade ago requires her superhuman senses to steal a precious magical artifact…or she must suffer the consequences.

Desperate to break the curse that enslaves her, Chalice agrees. But it is only with the help of Aydin— her noble warrior-protector—that she will risk venturing beyond the veil to discover the origins of her power."

Banged by the Flash
by Michelle Hoff
Kindle edition $.99

"Jenna Hudgens has more celebrity crushes and imaginary boyfriends than a crowd of tweens at a Justin Bieber concert. As if that isn't enough, she works for one of the nation's trashiest celebrity gossip blogs.

Delusions aside, life will never be perfect until Jenna snags a real-life husband sexy enough to grace the cover of GQ. Frank Roberts, a badly dressed, paranoid hobo with disgusting facial hair, four-hundred-dollar sunglasses, and a major hatred for the paparazzi, is not the one...or is he?"

Her Stanford scholarship money is about to run out, so she lets her best friend talk her into running a sports ring on Stanford’s big game.
