Le Grand’s Carnival Fantastic isn’t like other traveling circuses. It’s bound by a charm, held together by a centuries-old curse, that protects its members from ever growing older or getting hurt. Emmaline King is drawn to the circus like a moth to a flame…and unwittingly recruited into its folds by a mysterious teen boy whose kiss is as cold as ice.
Forced to travel through Texas as the new Girl in the Box, Emmaline is completely trapped. Breaking the curse seems like her only chance at freedom, but with no curse, there’s no charm, either—dooming everyone who calls the Carnival Fantastic home. Including the boy she’s afraid she’s falling for.
Everything—including his life—could end with just one kiss.
By A Charm & A Curse by Jaime Questell was one of those super highly anticipated books that I pretty much threw down everything and started to read the second it arrived in the mail. I was looking forward to … Continue reading
Nothing good comes from living in the Devil’s swamp.
Willow Bell doesn’t think moving to the Okefenokee is half bad, but nothing prepares her for what awaits in the shadows of the bog—or for the boy next door, who might just be the trouble people speak of.
Beneath his wicked, depthless eyes and the allure that draws girls to him, Beau Cadwell is mystery to his core. Where Beau goes, chaos follows. His lips are full of twisted grins and lies
, the girls say. He’s evil in disguise
, warns Gran.
It isn’t until girls wind up dead in the swamp that Willow wonders if maybe Beau is more intense than she can handle. His riddles tell her that he’s someone to be wary of, but his touch tells her that she can trust him. Problem is, which is true? It’s hard to tell with a boy like him…?

All is fair in love and hockey…
Claire O’Connor is back in Juniper Falls, but that doesn’t mean she wants to be. One semester off, that’s what she promised herself. Just long enough to take care of her father and keep the family business—a hockey bar beside the ice rink—afloat. After that, she’s getting the hell out. Again.
Enter Tate Tanley. What happened between them the night before she left town resurfaces the second they lay eyes on each other. But the guy she remembers has been replaced by a total hottie. When Tate is unexpectedly called in to take over for the hockey team’s star goalie, suddenly he’s in the spotlight and on his way to becoming just another egotistical varsity hockey player. And Claire’s sworn off Juniper Falls hockey players for good.
It’s the absolute worst time to fall in love.
For Tate and Claire, hockey isn’t just a game. And they both might not survive a body check to the heart.

I am Anda, and the lake is my mother. I am the November storms that terrify sailors and sink ships. With their deaths, I keep my little island on Lake Superior alive.
Hector has come here to hide from his family until he turns eighteen. Isle Royale is shut down for the winter, and there's no one here but me. And now him.
Hector is running from the violence in his life, but violence runs through my veins. I should send him away, to keep him safe. But I'm half human, too, and Hector makes me want to listen to my foolish, half-human heart. And if I do, I can't protect him from the storms coming for us.
When a copy of The November Girl showed up in my mailbox, I was pretty excited. I had fallen in love with the beautiful blue cover and the synopsis was really intriguing to me, so I was really excited to … Continue reading
