Switched in Time

by Breanna Hayse

Nya Lynn Crow is stuck in a boring life. Her only real joy exists in attending BDSM and kinkster parties with her best friend, Tawni. However, even those events are being ruined by a woman who’s out to destroy her, and because of whom Nya ends up being drugged, beaten and left to die on a mesa in the Sandia mountain foothills.
She tries to walk home in the dark and stumbles on to ancient Indian burial grounds, only to awaken in the care of two very handsome ranchers who are strong, kind, and ridiculously old-fashioned. While they nurse her back to health, she finds herself yearning for modern conveniences—conveniences that she soon discovers have not yet been invented.
Flint Masters, stern cowboy and owner of High River Ranch, takes an instant shine to this beautiful but strange ‘half-breed’, but her lack of proper manners and inability to follow direction grate on his nerves. As a result, Nya soon discovers that all the fantasies and role playing games she so enjoyed enacting before at BDSM events are nothing like the reality of a real, old-fashioned spanking. She’s also quick to...

Khandarken Rising

The Last War Book 1

by Sylvie Grayson

The Emperor has been defeated. New countries have arisen from the ashes of the old Empire. The citizens swear they will never need to fight again after that long and painful war.
Bethlehem Farmer is doing her best to help her brother Abram hold things together in south Khandarken after their father died in the battles. She is looking after the dispossessed, keeping the farm productive and the talc mine working in the hills behind their land. But when Abram takes a trip with Uncle Jade into the northern territory and disappears without a trace, she's left on her own. Suddenly things are not what they seem and no one can be trusted.
Major Dante Regiment is sent by his father, the General of Khandarken, to find out what the situation is at Farmer Holdings. What he sees shakes him to the core and fuels his grim determination to protect Bethlehem at all cost, even with his life.

Ms Grayson has created a fascinating new world with a lot of the same old problems. Sci fi and fantasy rolled into one with a sure hand and enormous imagination.

Ropin the Rancher by Kellie Kamryn

November 11, 2019


Trudy glanced at her wrist. “Well, would you look at the time? I need to get going.”

Kit frowned in confusion. “What are you talking about? You just got here, and besides, it’s your appointment.”

Greg heaved a sigh and folded his arms over his chest. “Mom, you’re not even wearing a watch.”

Trudy scratched her wrist. “Huh… You’re right. It must be my intuition telling me it’s time to leave.” She hiked her purse onto her shoulder and stood. “You kids have a nice chat about me, and we will discuss it next week.”

Surprised, Kit gaped as Trudy hurried from the office, slamming the door behind her.

She turned to Greg. “What the hell just happened?”

Greg scratched at his head. “I don’t know. She told me she wanted to discuss something with me, but she felt better doing it at your office. Said she felt better with a professional present.”

Kit muttered under her breath. “That woman will drive me nuts one day…”

One of Greg’s eyebrows shot upward. “You’re talking about my mother.”

Kit rolled her eyes. “As if you don’t know your own mother.”

“You have a point.” He chuckled, lounging back into the...

Humans have always looked to the stars for signs of Extraterrestrials.

The ice is melting and they will soon be free.

A huge rift in the ice is discovered in Antarctica that stretches for 18 miles, (29 km) and 820 feet (250 meters) apart at its widest point.
When environmental scientists enter the ice rift to check out an anomaly on NASA's satellite scans of the area, they discover something far more life threatening than the raging blizzard trapping them in the rift. They are unarmed and unprepared for their ensuing fight for survival.
