Will they be strong enough to hold on?

Bestselling author Sarah Fine presents an emotional standalone novel sure to thrill new adult romance readers everywhere.

Last semester, Romy escaped from an abusive relationship with the guy she’d thought was the man of her dreams. This semester she’s putting herself back together, determined to reclaim her passion for art and for life. When she signs up for a painting class at the local art co-op, the possibility of passion becomes very real — in the form of her teacher, Caleb. Both mysterious and seriously hot, Caleb bares his soul on his canvases, and Romy’s fascinated by what she sees.

Caleb is just trying to keep his head above water. Caring for his traumatized, unstable sister is getting harder every day, and his paintings are so dark and bleak that no one is buying. Teaching classes at the co-op is no longer enough, and now he’s going to have to sell more than just his art to the wealthy, sex-starved women in his classes. But when Romy comes along, she makes everything more complicated. She sees the truth in his paintings — a truth no one else has realized, until now.

Romy and Caleb might have a real shot together — one that could heal them both. But when ghosts from their pasts re-emerge, determined to keep them apart, will they be strong enough to hold on to each other?

“I LOVED IT!” – Caroline Leavitt – New York Times bestselling author.


Set in 1965, The Firecracker King depicts a quiet lakeside neighborhood that is shocked by the brutal murder of a beautiful teenage girl. 

Jake’s idealism is battered by hatred and betrayal as he tries to survive in a dangerous adult world. Part mystery, part coming-of-age story, part thriller, THE FIRECRACKER KING builds its pace to a breakneck ending, yet along the way contains a full measure of humor and insight.

–A.C. Crispin – New York Times bestselling author. (The STARBRIDGE Series, Star Wars – THE HAN SOLO TRILOGY; Pirates of the Caribbean – THE PRICE OF FREEDOM)
“Bayan’s description of the firecracker slugfest out on the lake had me howling with laughter. Not many authors can say they’ve achieved that. The only thing I can compare the writing to (and it holds up very favorably) is Stephen King’s THE BODY – the story that inspired the film STAND BY ME.”

NEW RELEASE! A Sky Full Of Stars by Cynthia Frazier-Buck

In the small town of Star’s Haven, North Carolina, there’s always been a line between the Posh and the Common. That line is a railroad track. 

Becca Miles, a wealthy high school student with everything going for her, has a crush on Brendan Reed, a poor but impossibly good-looking classmate. Their senior year is almost over, so Becca takes matters into her own hands to get the guy she wants, even though he’s from the other side of the track.

When Becca and Brendan give it a shot, their lives are complicated by their best friends, both of whom make things difficult for the would-be lovebirds. Meanwhile, at home, Becca must also contend with her father, who has strong opinions about how she should live her life. Never mind that Becca is eighteen and can make her own decisions. 

It seems everyone in town has an opinion, good or bad, about the budding relationship between Becca and Brendan. As long as anyone in Star’s Haven can remember, the Posh and the Common do not mix. No one knows that better than Becca, but she chooses to follow her heart anyway. 

In this retelling of Pretty In Pink, two teens find the courage to follow their hearts, even when the people closest to them keep telling them it’s not worth it. All Becca and Brendan want is the chance to find out for themselves.
