“You came for me,” she whispered.

“Well yeah, you’re my girl, B.” I’ll always come for you.

Silence settled between us, but it was lighter now. Strained but lighter. The need to fix this, to fix her still burned through me, gnawing my bones like acid. But there was no magic cure, no quick antidote for this. It was a part of who she was. Just another part for me to love, to understand and cherish.

Because all of Harleigh’s parts, even the broken ones, made her who she was today. And there wasn’t a single inch of her I didn’t adore.

“How are you feeling? About the game?”

I gazed down at her. “It’s just a game, Harleigh.” You’re more important.

“We both know that’s not true, Nix. It’s your chance to get out of this place. This life.” Exhaustion clung to her words making them heavy.

“Can I tell you something?” I whispered.

Harleigh turned to me, putting us face to face. “Anything.” She smiled. A small uncertain smile, but it was enough.

Enough that I said, “Going to college… leaving The Row… playing for Albany U… it all fucking terrifies me.”

“It does?” No judgment shone in her eyes, only mild surprise.

“Yeah. It freaks me the fuck out.”

“But you’re so good, Nix.”

“Here. I’m good here. But it’s college, B. What if I don’t fit in there? What if I’m not good enough?”

What if I was the boy with the sad life story? The outcast? The charity case?

She leaned up, touching her head to mine and inhaled a shaky breath. “Isn’t it better to have tried than to always wonder what if?”

A small chuckle left my lips. “You make it sound so easy.”

“You’re good enough, Nix.” Her eyes drilled into mine, the flecks of dark green hypnotic. “And you’re worthy. You deserve this. You deserve a shot at something good, something better.”

“You do too, you know? You deserve the world.” And I wanted to give it to her.

“I can’t see that far yet.” She dropped her gaze, leaving a cold chill in my veins.

“Birdie, look at me.” I angled her face to mine. “If you can’t see it yet, I’ll see it for the both of us.”





Phoenix Wilder is fighting.

For the girl he loves and the future he isn’t sure he deserves.

But he’ll do it for her.

His Birdie.

His anchor.

The only girl ever to see him for who he really is.

Harleigh Wren Maguire is trying.

For the boy she loves and the future she thought was stolen from her.

But she’ll do it for him.

Her protector.

Her heart.

The only guy to ever make her feel worth something.

But Harleigh and Nix will have to figure out what they want and what they’re willing to sacrifice before they can chase their dreams of a better life.

Because sometimes love isn’t enough.

And the promises they made could end up nothing more than bittersweet memories.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon returns with Shadow Fallen, a brand-new entry in her Dream-Hunter series.

For centuries, Ariel has fought the forces of evil. Her task was to protect the souls of innocent mortals when they die. Captured by a powerful sorceress, she is transformed into a human who has no memory of her real life or calling.

And is plunked into the middle of the Norman invasion of England.

Cursed the moment he was born with a “demonic deformity,” Valteri wants nothing of this earth except to depart it and will do his duty to his king until then. When a strange noblewoman is brought before him, Valteri realizes he has met her before…in his dreams. When others come for her, bringing with them preternatural predators, he is faced with a destiny he had no idea was waiting. One he wants no part of.

The truth is that Valteri isn’t just a knight of William the Conqueror. He is the son of one of the deadliest powers in existence, and if he doesn’t restore Ariel to her place, she is not the only one who will be in peril. The world itself hangs in the balance, and he is the necessary key to hold back the powers of evil. But only if he can find a way to work with the woman who stands for everything in the universe he hates.

New Release – Ambiguous by Leslie McAdam

Ambiguous by Leslie McAdam is now live!

FREE with Kindle Unlimited

Love is for other people, not for me.

At least that’s what I believed, until I met him.

Julian Hill.

The most famous rock star on the planet. A music god with untidy hair and the voice of an angel.

I’ll never be anything but out, and he has very good reasons to stay in the closet.

After all, every move he makes is dissected, critiqued, and posted on social media, so he just wants a little privacy.

I understand that. Truly.

But no one makes me feel the way he does, and I’m pretty sure he has feelings for me as well.

Which is inconvenient since his record label hired me to sue him.

I should’ve sorted things out before I kissed him.


Ambiguous is a forbidden mm rock star romance about a fashion-forward singer who hates labels of all kinds (except for clothing), a dapper attorney who already has a (fake) boyfriend for a very good reason, and the possibility of love saving the day.
