True Gladiator by: Nicole Grane

YA Romantic Adventure

True Gladiator

“The years of battling in the Coliseum had prepared Darius for the acts of a warrior. The council of his brother had taught him to fight only with honor. The love of this woman had given him the heart to accept who he must become. Juliet had called him her gladiator . . . and he was. He would fight for her, not Rome. And if it meant protecting her, Darius would kill without hesitation.”

From the moment Darius Magnus looked upon Juliet, his heart was no longer his own. A criminal in the eyes of Rome, as well as a favored Gladiator, Darius must find a way to free himself from the Coliseum arena and save his Juliet from an army of Celtic warriors and an arranged marriage to a villainous Senator.

FIRE GATE (Shinehah Saga, #1)

In a world where a Mystic’s torn flesh is worth more than six month’s wages and death-auctions are whispered about in every Okoru city, seventeen-year-old Mystic twins, Wyan and Lor, are determined to change it all—and survive.
Despite straining beyond his physical limits (not to mention his already thin patience), Wyan never inherited his Mystic abilities, and so mastery of Lor's element would mean sanctuary for both of them. But when Lor's plan unravels, Wyan is forced to take action on his own before the last of their kind—and his family—are sold to their graves. Within a land of unforgiving Fire and Ice, Wyan must find the one ally and master-warrior he never would have trusted before: himself.

Pinehurst by: Nicole Grane

YA adventure-fantasy


After attending years of public school and for reasons unknown, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Hollyander AKA Evie, finds herself suddenly "dumped" at Pinehurst, a stuffy private school for the Mageia—the children of magic. Gone are the days of Geometry and Keyboarding, Evie’s schedule now consists of classes that teach defensive spells and charms against the deadly creatures of the Underworld. She discovers that her magical abilities are far more pronounced than that of her classmates, or even her teachers for that matter. She's forced into sixth period PE, boys only “boot-camp” for Slayers; and is taunted by some of the students for being the only female Slayer—ever!
But life isn’t all that bad. She has a ten alarm crush on Antonio, a hunky nineteen year old Slayer who is assigned as her personal trainer. She’s ecstatic until she realizes that Antonio can also communicate with her telepathically—translation: he can hear every steamy thought she has for him.

After learning that her father has been captured and is being held hostage in Hell of all places, Evie seeks help from Antonio and Havoc, a feisty pixie who Evie’s sure is evil incarnate. The three of them journey into the Underworld, battle two-headed vipers, a troll, and spiders that are big enough to suck your face off. She’s propositioned by the Lord of the Underworld himself. Proving more powerful than expected, Evie is an acquisition he must have—as well as his ticket to the Outer World. The bargain: the safety of her friends and the knowledge to save her father's life in exchange for an unthinkable price.
