A Mystery-Thriller-Romance for Everyone
You probably know USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Amy Vansant from her wildy popular and bestselling Pineapple Port Mystery Series, but have you tried her Kilty series? It has a touch of paranormal, but is more like OUTLANDER in that the fantasy bits are less important than real life. There's romance (but no graphic sex), dark thrills (but nothing graphically gory), action-packed (but no real cursing)...and as usual, Amy's trademark humor! Works for cozy-ish and classic mystery-thriller lovers!
If you're looking for a mystery-thriller with humor, action and romance with an adorable-yet-hunky time-tossed Highlander — this is for you! Fans of Janet Evanovich would like it very much, for example...

Fantasy from Kate Avery Ellison
Kate Avery Ellison decided she wanted to be an author when she was five years old, and with hard work, determination, and the support of loved ones along the way, her dreams of telling stories for a living came true in 2011 with her first novel, The Curse Girl, and continued with her Amazon bestselling series The Frost Chronicles and numerous other fantasy and science fiction novels. She loves putting a dash of mystery in everything she writes, an ode to her childhood spent reading Nancy Drew, Agatha Christie, and Sherlock Holmes, and she can't resist adding a good twist in the story wherever she can.
Kate wishes she could live in a place where it's always October, but until that's possible, she makes her home in humid Atlanta with her husband, son, and two spoiled cats. When she isn't dreaming up her next novel or holed up writing it down, Kate can be found binging her favorite shows on Netflix, reading on her Kindle, building intricate train track configurations with her toddler, and playing board games with her husband and friends.

Romance from Petie McCarty
Petie spent a large part of her career working at Walt Disney World -- "The Most Magical Place on Earth" -- where she enjoyed working in the land of fairy tales by day and creating her own romantic fairy tales by night, including her new series, The Cinderella Romances. She eventually said good-bye to her "day" job to write her stories full-time. These days Petie spends her time writing sequels to her regency time travel series, Lords in Time, and her cozy-mystery-with-a-dash-of-romantic-suspense series, the Mystery Angel Romances.
Petie shares her home on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee with her horticulturist husband, a spoiled-rotten English Springer spaniel addicted to pimento-stuffed green olives, and a noisy Nanday conure named Sassy who made a cameo appearance in Angel to the Rescue.
My first five books released by the now-closed Desert Breeze Publishing--Everglades, Catch of the Day, No Going Back, Angel to the Rescue and The SEAL's Angel--are temporarily unavailable while I change publishers.

Drama and Romance from Jacky Gray
According to Book Viral, "Gray certainly knows how to spin a saga, more importantly she knows how to pitch the tone. The plots are compelling, the characters superb and the writing excellent. It's the kind of alchemy that, on the rare occasions it comes together is hard to replicate." Jacky writes edgy, character-driven tales packed with fun, drama and snarky wit, but above all, romance.
Bryant Rockwell Series
Described as a pitch-perfect blend of drama and romance for fans of Ten Things I Hate About You and Glee, these young adult stories are snappy, eclectic and edgy. An enjoyable read which will appeal to anyone with a sense of humour and an ear for the ironic.
Dealing with issues of self-image and peer abuse, this well-written, intriguing series shares many elements with Thirteen Reasons Why as the complex characters grapple with issues such as sexuality, bullying and misread signals. It gives a convincing depiction of mercurial teenage relationships and that dreadful sense of hope and fear combined around transforming friendships into relationships when you don't quite dare take the plunge in case your feelings aren't reciprocated.
As a special gift, exclusive to AuthorsXP's lovely readers, Join Jacky's Newsletter and get free copies of the first two Bryant Rockwell books. You will hear about all of Jacky's deals and latest releases.

Fairy-tale Romances from Dani Haviland
Start the Fairies Saga - Revenge, intrigue, and passion with a light-hearted twist!

Sharing is part of her personality, so creating books and photos to share all over the world makes her happy.
Her tenacious and perky attitude is reflected in many of her cyber children, whether they be a British lord stuck in 18th century North Carolina or a 6'7" time traveling 'fairy' who is out to champion anyone who is having a rough time dealing with difficult life situations.
THE FAIRIES SAGA -- Time travelers: fairies, according to the auld folk, people who suddenly showed up in strange clothes, confused about where they were, and without friends or family. Fairies either kept quiet and adapted to their new time period…or went insane.
Bounce between the present day and the 18th century, survive mobs and mayhem, using nothing but grit and guts, give or take a knife of two.
**The books in The Fairies Saga are numbered for historical sequence only. Each is a stand alone story. If you decide you want to know more about a character: where they came from or where they eventually wound up, check out your book's number and go from there! (Much like the Star Wars movies)

Sweet Romances from Nicole Ellis
I write contemporary sweet romances and cozy mysteries. I live in a small town in Washington State, near Seattle. I love to write about small coastal towns, although those that I write about are figments of my imagination.
I used to be a tax accountant, but realized that writing romantic stories about people falling in love or making my amateur sleuths discover secrets about their suspects was way more fun than depreciating assets.
There's never a dull moment in my household, with a tech geek husband, two small boys that keep me on my toes, two cranky cats, and a mischievous house rabbit. Tidbits of my everyday life have a tendency to find their way into my fiction, so watch out! :)
