Nightmare Awakes by Rebee Saltman

At twenty-five, Lydia Adaire’s life was over. She had said as much to herself many times. With no suitors and no real prospects for a future, her life was going to be well and truly over after her cousin’s wedding tonight. 

However, her own self pity did not compare to the real horror of actually dying. Being ‘socially dead’ was not the same as having a monster kill you in the garden. Lydia learned this first hand as the monster was ripping into her flesh and her life flashed before her eyes. 

Lydia Adaire’s life really was over. She was dead at the hands of a supernatural beast, before she could die a social outcast of London society. Resigned to her fate, Lydia was surprised to hear Herne-the-Horned, Fae Lord of Nimeton Forest, inform her, “No, Lydia of London, I suspect you are more alive than you have ever been.”

What do the Fae want with her? Is she safe from the monster? Will the secret society, The Order of the Argent Sword, learn her secret and lock her away? Will she find a new governess position before her Uncle turns her out?

Under for a Spell, by David Yuro

In 1955, four sisters were practicing the Old Religion and using White Magick for beneficial purposes, following the practices handed down by their ancestors for centuries. Then one of the sisters fell in love with Carl, a hateful, selfish man who teaches himself Black Magick. This situation led to an intertwining of the fates of two families, a weaving destined to bring the families together again decades later. The truth, hidden for a spell, will not lay buried forever. It will come to light, and it will not allow coded diaries, continental separations, alcoholic parents, or reticent witnesses from preventing it from escaping! "Under For a Spell" is told from the perspectives of those who intimately knew and loved the principal actors, each contributing his or her own vision to the events of this superb mystery and collection of journeys of self-realization.
