Shadow and Stone
(Frey Saga #5)
By Melissa Wright
New Adult, YA Fantasy
Paperback & ebook
February 4th 2020

No bargains unpaid.

After a perilous clash with the fey, the changeling who betrayed the paramount of their laws--and threatens the safety of both realms--has gone into hiding. As Frey and her Seven recover, concealed plans and furtive bargains begin to unravel, putting in danger their old guard and new.

They’re on unsteady ground.

Scattered and healing, those sworn to protect the North and its lord work to secure their footing. They are running out of time to cure the darkness poisoning the fey lands, before it overflows into the rest of the realm. But Ruby has gone missing, and this time it seems of her own accord.

They’re out of time.

If they don’t stop her, she’ll face the deadly changeling alone. But more forces are at play than it seems, and the fey lord confined on his lands by treachery and two half-human elves has made a bargain of his own.

Excerpt

“Dark magic,” Aster said, “can make even the strongest seed no more than ash.”

Fire. She’d meant Francine’s fire, the burning of the villages. Questions flared in Thea’s mind, but she bit her tongue. This was clearly a sore subject for the girl, and there was no doubt where she placed the blame.

Thea followed silently as Aster brought them through an exquisite gateway. “This is our new garden,” Aster said, pride warring in her tone with what might have been loss. Or Thea might have been imagining things again.

“It is the loveliest I have ever seen,” Thea told her. She meant it. Not simply because she’d never seen a Council garden, but because the entire space before them was designed as a labyrinth of beautiful flora. Woven lattices stretched skyward, balanced with blooms. Carved archways loomed overhead, dripping with green moss that shaded ferns and delicate blossoms below. As they moved through the twisting pathways, pools came into view, watched over by shaped brush in the forms of everything from dragons to butterflies.

Thea had never seen so much variety in her life, let alone a single day. She stared, in awe of variations she’d not known possible. Red honeysuckle, freesia buds as big as her fist, leaves with white-tipped spikes, and thorns that dripped a black-violet slime. Her fingers drew in reflexively; Thea remembered the warnings she’d heard when she’d been young. The light elves did not just possess the capacity for beauty. They created poisons as well.

She glanced up from the splendor, and found Aster watching her, smile thin. Thea had a momentary image of Isa—the young halfling girl who was strong and wild enough to keep the humans at bay—and made a vow to remember something else.

Don’t underestimate anyone.

Blood & Brute & Ginger Root
(A Bad Medicine Novella)
By Melissa Wright
Paranormal
ebook, 121 Pages
July 21st 2019 by Melissa Wright

Diana Coulton doesn’t have time for love. She’s got Bad Medicine—the family herb & book shop—to take care of, not to mention her chaotic sisters and censorious cat. No matter what Diana might want, romance is on the back burner for this Coulton sister.

Until the night well-meaning Bernadette decides to fix all that. Bernie knows better. Magic used to spur romance has a tendency to go haywire, all witches know that. She’s going to have to stop it.

If she can only remember how.

Before long, the local fire marshal shows up on Diana’s front step. But he’s not there to inspect the shop. He’s been caught in Bernie’s spell, and worse, he doesn’t even believe magic exists. Miles tries to get away from Bad Medicine, but he’s bewitched, and providence is not on his side.

Forces of nature conspire to throw Miles and Diana together, and time is running out to cure the enchantment. If they can’t figure out how to undo the magic hexing them, Diana could lose everything. But if they do, she might lose Miles.

Toil and Trouble Release Day Celebration

It's release day for Toil and Trouble

Join the celebration at the Havenwood Falls Book Club Release Day party and pick up your copy of Toil and Trouble at Amazon, Apple Books, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo.  



Toil and Trouble is a standalone novella in the shared world of Havenwood Falls, so you can jump into the series anywhere to read the titles you'd like. Check out all the titles from some amazing authors at HavenwoodFalls.com 


A cursed witch unable to use her powers. A shifter who’s lived this long by keeping to himself. A choice to save her—or himself.

Circe is a witch. Everyone says so. Her powers have yet to manifest, but even if they did, an ancient curse prohibits her from using them. She’s also an orphan, and the coven who raised her reminds her of both every day. Lest she fall in love and very bad things will follow.

 Yearning for a break from the coven’s rituals and meddling, Circe strikes out on her own in Havenwood Falls, far away from the constant reminders that someone wants her blood.

 Evan is that someone. He's a shifter—a truth he’s hidden his entire existence, and the single reason a council of mages hired him. And now, thanks to an unfortunate and binding deal, Evan has been charged with locating Circe. He should have dealt with her ages ago, but he keeps finding excuses not to. And it’s not only that he doesn’t trust the council’s motives, or that he has no interest in kidnapping an innocent girl.

 This job is all he needs to resolve his bargain, yet Evan can’t seem to follow through.

When the council tires of waiting, they take matters into their own hands. And Evan must decide: step out of the shadows to save her, or keep his own skin.
