Author: Angela Corbett

A love so strong, even eternity can’t separate them. Evie Starling has lived a relatively uneventful life hanging out with friends, gossiping about boys, and driving her 1966 Mustang.

All of that changes when she moves to Gunnison, Colorado, to start college and meets two mysterious men. For centuries, Alex Night and Emil Stone have yearned for Evie but they each have their own reasons for wanting to be with her. When both men claim to be her soul mate and tell her about an unbelievable past, Evie learns that she's not the person she thought she was. Soon, Evie finds herself in the middle of an age-old battle between the Amaranthine Society, the soul protectors, and the Daevos Resistance, the soul destroyers. With a past she doesn't understand, and a future rife with danger, Evie has to decide who she can trust. But Alex and Emil aren't the only ones who want Evie, and her soul is about to become the rope in an eternal tug-of-war.

Eternal Starling is her debut novel and the first book in the Emblem of Eternity trilogy.

Author Bio

As a child, Angela Corbett’s most prized possession was a set of read-along books. She used to follow along with the narrator on the stereo and dream of when she would be able to read by herself. Her childhood reading habit led her to consider her future career. However, after consulting with her parents, she realized she had already exceeded hobbit height and since fairies and dragonslayers were tricky jobs to get, she decided she wanted to create worlds of her own. She started writing poetry in elementary school and worked as a journalist in high school and college, but could never leave her love for writing fiction behind.

She is a graduate of Westminster College where she double majored in communication and sociology. She has worked as a journalist, freelance writer, and director of communications and marketing. She loves classic cars, traveling, and escaping in a good book. She lives in Utah with her incredibly supportive husband and their five-pound Pomeranian, Pippin, whose following of fangirls could rival Justin Bieber’s.

Places to find Ever Wrath

“We’re surrounded here.” Shade lunged toward the first soldier who reached her, a goblin with chainmail armor tainted with dirt and grime from never being cleaned, and a helmet fashioned to look like a stag with broken horns. It’s black and red eyes stared her down as it flashed its dirty, sharp teeth at her. Green skin, dark and thick as leather, surrounded that mouth, and she swung her sword toward him as he reached out to grab at her arm.
She managed to slice the hand off and shove him hard enough with her foot to make him lose his balance, sending three others tumbling backward down the stairs as his screech followed them. They were replaced almost immediately with more demonic figures and fallen faeries, all marked by evil with blackened tongues and dark, deceptive beauty. She sliced though one soldier’s wings, his scream deafening over the hollers of the crowd, making her want to hold her head to block out the noise. It was disorientating, but she fought against the murkiness and continued to fight the horde of Unseelie hungering to destroy them.

Home Matters by Julie N. Ford

According to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous when she can't even get a decent acting gig? Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. Even though she has no design training and has never even held a power tool, she refuses to let that stop her. She's confident that her destiny is finally within reach.

When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.

Silver Linings by Kaylee Baldwin

Drew Westfall wants nothing more than to forget what he had to do in the name of "smart" business. Cutting off all ties with his parents—including handing over the entire contents of his trust fund to a charity—he takes off for Bridger, Colorado where his best friend has an extra room for him. It doesn't take long for him to realize that his business degree won’t do him much good in a town as small as Bridger, but he's broke and has nowhere else to go.

Eden Torresi has every reason to wallow. Not only did she lose her mother, but she had to drop out of nursing school and is in a relationship with a guy unwilling to commit. But Eden isn't the wallowing type. Instead, she chooses to spend most of her time taking care of the seniors at Silver Linings Nursing home. When she learns that her boyfriend's new roommate is down on his luck, her caring nature makes her want to reach out to him and offer what help she can. But the more time they spend together, the more complicated things get, especially when the seniors of Silver Linings decide to play matchmaker.

Righting a Wrong by Rachael Anderson

Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year ended in a fiasco. Only Jace Sutton knew the real reason why—that she was a spineless coward. Now, seven years later, her father's been in an accident and needs help, and Cambr has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and boards a plane, hoping against hope that Jace is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past.

If only life worked that way.

Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she’d led him on, bruised his heart, and left town without a backward glance, he was forced to pick up the pieces and try not to hate her for it. Eventually, he put it behind him and moved on, creating a life for himself in his beloved hometown. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jake instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs.

If only it were that easy.

Lost and Found by Karey White

Lydia was supposed to have an adventurous and exciting summer. Instead she's done nothing more than read and eat takeout. Now it's time to go home, and what does she have to show for it? A big fat nothing. Unless, of course, her trip to the airport somehow turns into something more than just a flight home.

Blake feels like he's been sent on a wild goose chase. While work is piling up back in Denver, he's on the other side of the country, hunting for some mysterious box that his grandfather left him. Well, no more. Nothing inside that box could possibly be more important than the opportunity to make it as the youngest partner at his firm. So he's going home, and that's that. But that's before he discovers his flight has been cancelled.

When these two strangers meet at the airport, they make a split-second decision to search for the box together. Maybe with both of them on the hunt, Lydia can have her adventure and Blake can find the box. And maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even find some romance.

Second Chances 101 by Donna K. Weaver

Thirty seven year old Francie Davis, a recent widow and empty nester, gets to attend college at last. She’s sure her luck has changed when she also lands a job on campus that will pay her tuition, as administrative assistant to a history professor. When her handsome new boss yells at her on the first day of work, Francie worries she will never be good enough.

For Professor Alex Diederik, life is going downhill fast. Not only is his bitter ex-wife trying to poison their only daughter against him, but now his one place of solace—his work environment—is being complicated by his attractive new administrative assistant. She drives home his feelings of failure as a husband and father, and Alex wonders if hiring her was the right thing to do.

Francie will have to put aside her hurt and insecurities or risk her dreams, while Alex must look outside himself if he’s to mend the breach with his daughter. And, perhaps, find someone who can help heal his pain.

Immersed in Love by Jennifer Griffith

Lisette Pannebaker speaks five languages and has a brilliant business plan—personal language immersion. Clients can hire her to shadow them and speak all day in any language they need to learn for business or travel—whatever.

But there’s a major hitch: she’s far too pretty. Clients with less than honorable intentions sign up just have Lisette at their side. Solution? A make-under. Way under.It works like a charm. None of her male clients show her the least bit of interest.

Until… Erik.

Erik Gunnarsson is charming, kind, and smart—everything she’s ever looked for. Even though he seems to have a secret and she swore she'd never date a client, Lisette is tempted to shed her disguise—even if it means jeopardizing her career.

     High school sweethearts manage to make it through college into the working world still together and going strong.  From the start of their relationship Jake has made very clear his apprehension to marriage.  Kenna understood going into this nine years ago that with Jake there would never be a ring or white dress.
     Now seeing their friends so eager to make such a serious commitment in their own relationships a crack begins to form in Jake and Kenna’s once solid foundation. 
     Will Kenna ever open up and share her dreams with Jake?  Can Jake overcome his childhood issues?  Is Kenna willing to accept things just as they are forever?  Will her desire for a more serious commitment make her change her feelings for her one love?  Is Jake enough alone or does Kenna demand more than he can give?  Can they move forward full throttle into their future together?
Chapter 10
Graceful under normal circumstances is not a word to describe me, drunk me is a hot mess.  The room spins around me as recognition of my words to Jake consume me.  I didn’t mean to let that slip.  Calm, cool, collected Kenna was who I was supposed to stick to, not blubbering heart- broken mess Kenna Jean.  I haven’t called him Jakey since high school. What the hell?! 
            Before I make it to our bed, Jake is pulling me into him.  The kiss consumes me.  I’m all slobber and tongue, I’m drunk, and I don’t care.  I want this man. I need this man, his love, his heart, his comfort, his connection.  He is my all.  There is nothing seductive or sexy in the way I begin pawing at Jakes clothes.  They are preventing me of being skin on skin with him.  He pulls away, leaving my mouth hanging open, as I’m still trying to kiss him.
“Kenna, I don’t love you enough, huh?”
            Then he’s on me again, now with his shirt off and mine too somehow.  He’s got me, now completely naked, against the wall before I can think.  He lifts me wrapping my legs around him as he slams into me.  Oh my goodness, mother of everything good in this world, this is hard, fast, good.  Take me; let me die right here, because I am a happy freaking woman.  The pace is relentless and my head is spinning from my buzz and the euphoria of my building orgasm.  My entire body is liquid; I am at Jakes mercy.  He drops his head licking, sucking, and nipping at that sweet spot in the curve of my neck sending me over the edge.
“Not done yet, angel.  Drunk or not, you will know just how much I love you.” He growls against my neck, in that oh so sweet spot, driving me wild from the vibrations of his voice. 
            With that I am placed on our bed.  If someone asked me my name right now, my answer would be ‘ooooohhhhhhh’.  He is everywhere, all over me.  He enters my core again sending more aftershocks through my body.  He continues to slam into me at an insistent pace, I don’t know how he hasn’t gone over the edge, but I am certainly not complaining.  When he begins caressing and kissing my breasts, I am lost in sensation.  There is a gentle tug at my nipple before he comes down with his mouth sucking hard.  Through the pain I am sent over the waterfall again.  Damn, multiple orgasms are the shit.  I was a pool of liquid before, now I am floating in an ocean of emotion. 
            Jake seems focused, determined, like this is a mission.  I can read the self- control on his beautiful face.  He is trying to make his point to my body.  The only thought I manage to form is, for so few words, he sure has communicated quite well with me.  He slows, now every touch is deliberate and delicate as I am trembling uncontrollably.  He nuzzles my neck and shoulder as I finally feel his warm seed spread through me.
“I love you, Angel.  Don’t ever think you are not enough or my love isn’t enough.  All I am is for you, all I have is yours.”  He whispers.
            I am unable to speak or stop the tears from rolling down my face.  I just nod my head against him in agreement. He kisses my tears away as he pulls out of me.  Turning us both on our sides, he holds me into him, my back to his front as I literally pass out.

About the Author

Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
