But the friendship starts to change when Victor develops deeper feelings for her. If that wasn’t complicated enough, newcomer James Turner, an emancipated minor with a dark past, wanders into her sights.

Fading is the first book in an exciting new fantasy romance series by award-winning author Cindy Cipriano.


About Fading:
One-liner for Fading?
He could be the boy of her dreams – literally.

More details?
Seventeen-year old Leath Elliott has given up on dating boys from Woodvine, NC when James Turner wanders into her sights. Leath is captivated by James, an emancipated minor with a dark past and begins to wonder if he is the boy of her dreams.

Where did the idea come from for Fading?
One of the locations in the story is Judaculla Rock. This is a real 3,000 year old petroglyph located in western North Carolina. I’ve visited the boulder several times and was intrigued by the legends and speculation that surrounds Judaculla Rock.

What genre is Fading?
Young adult.
But – Fading crosses genres. It’s a paranormal romance colliding with a dystopia. Fading is also a crossover, appealing to young adult and older readers.

Who would enjoy reading Fading?
Anyone who has ever been in love with two people at the same time. J

Favorite lines from Fading:
I wanted to touch him. So I did. (pg. 1)
The first time I held hands with Victor Santana, it wasn’t romantic. Not at all. (pg. 3)
Victor’s strong hand cradled mine, and he became my tether to reality. (pg. 3)
His warm lips brushed against my ear as he whispered three little words. “I can wait.” (pg. 6)
Name James Turner. Age 17. Parents Emancipated Minor. (pgs. 10-11)
“I don’t usually get this close to a girl, unless I’m going to kiss her,” said the boy, giving me a playful grin. (pg. 23)
When we were apart, it seemed as if all of eternity passed before I saw him again. (pg. 110)
To one boy, I’d gladly give my heart. To the other, my life. (pg. 130)
I wondered how long a person could live like this, so completely torn in half. (pg. 130)
She could have any boy in the restaurant. Why was she falling all over mine? (pg. 147)
But right now I had him. The boy of my dreams. (pg. 174)
“I will never stop loving you,” he said. “Not even in death.” (pg. 268)
James is sort of a two-sides-to-one-coin kind of guy. Was it difficult writing his character?
Definitely, but so worth it!
*sighs* 
He’s drop-dead gorgeous and funny, but he hovers over dark territory. It was a challenge writing him because I wanted my readers to see what Leath sees in James.

And Leath’s other love interest, Victor, was it hard to write him?
Not a bit. 
*sighs again*
Victor is the definition of the perfect guy. He’s good-looking, funny, confident and charismatic. Not to mention he has an exceptionally beautiful heart.

Who is your favorite character in Fading?
Ever. The girl you love to hate. I think we’re all hoping that in the end, she’ll do the right thing. The problem is we lose a faith in her each time she opens her mouth.

Who designed the cover of Fading?
The talented Marya Heidel. Isn’t it stunning?!

How many books are in the Fading series? There will be 3-4 books in the series. I have finished the 2nd and I am working on the 3rd.

For eighteen-year-old Rouen Rivoche, being a fairy princess isn’t about fancy parties and happily ever afters.

Rouen’s people are the dark Fae whose powers of lightning, thundersnow, and all things Winter make them cold, severe, and 100% intolerant of rebellion.

Plus, to be with Syl, Rouen’s masquerading as a glam goth-rock star and human high school student. Honestly, Rouen doesn’t think things could get any more complicated.

Then, she discovers she must become Queen of the Winter Court or all her people will die. No pressure.

Now, dark forces are amassing in the Winter Court, turning Rouen’s people against her and blocking her path to the throne. Even Syl with all her powers of white flame and Summer can’t stop this new kind of evil.

French Vanilla and Felonies by Erin Huss ~ Review

Title: French Vanilla & Felonies (Cambria Clyne Mysteries #1)
Author: Erin Huss
Genre: Adult, Romantic Comedy
Length: 248 pages
Publisher: Gemma Halliday Publishing
Release Date: March 13, 2018

Reviewed by: Jasmyn
Note: Was originally read as the title For Rent

When Cambria Clyne—klutzy, twenty-something single mom—takes the job of an apartment manager at an LA complex, she hopes her run of bad luck is finally coming to an end. She's got a nice home for her daughter, a steady source of income, and the cute maintenance guy is certainly a nice perk! But her luck takes a bad turn again when a dead body turns up, a crime spree takes over the community, and Cambria finds her complex squarely at the center of it all!

With her dream job suddenly on the line, Cambria dons her detective hat to get to the truth—after all, she's watched enough crime shows on TV to know how to catch a perp! Or so she hopes as she wades through a streaker in apartment 40, an ex-con with a shady agenda, an overly frisky retired couple, and the suspiciously sneaky dealings of the dentist in apartment 36. But will Cambria be able to catch a killer... or will she get caught up in his game and lose it all?

**********

For Rent (or French Vanilla & Felonies) was a really fun read. Light-hearted, at times ridiculous, with just enough of the feels to string your emotions along a little. Cambria is a struggling single mom. And when she lands the job of a lifetime, she'd do anything to keep it. Bad luck follows her though, and she finds herself under attack (verbally) from the apartment residents that are convinced she's responsible for the recent crime spree in the building. 

The residents are just beyond belief. They are some of the best secondary characters I've read in a long time. Each is very unique and stands out (some are ridiculous - but it's a comedy so that's ok) and has their own reasons for wanting Cambria gone.

But job of a lifetime remember? Cambria's attempts to solve the serious crimes around the building, along with the ones she seems to make up as she goes, never turn out well. And of course, the cute maintenance man is always there to see her fall. The sparks begin to heat up here but they do take a little longer to actually fly than some romances.

The mystery part of this book is just as prevalent as the romance and really adds that extra layer to the story. But please remember - this is a comedy - so don't get upset when things go crazy.
