What would life be without books? 
Probably different things for different people.

For me, it would be hell. 
I love to read. It’s a great way to relax. I enjoy reading while at the same time soaking in my big, super isolated bath. The water stays warm for at least 30 minutes, so that’s definitely a couple of chapters in the book of choice for that day. 

What was life like without books? 
What did life look like before the stories were printed?
Well, even without books there were thankfully still stories. It was only relatively late in history that they were put down to paper, or in our case, digitally available. Stories have always been there. From the earliest rock paintings (pre-historic comics?) to travelling storytellers, people have always been entertained by tales of heros, countries & worlds far from home and strange mythical creatures. 

Life was hard. 
There were no 9 – 5 work days. No holidays. No weekends. Especially for the majority of the people. For those who didn’t have status or money, life was one laborious day after the other. There was no internet. No TV. No radio. Most couldn’t read. They trudged through their lives with only the stories to entertain them.
Millions found release from their difficult daily life in the tales they were told. They could escape to another life. One that wasn’t so burdensome. One where there were fairies, heros and heroines that won the day. Where the villains lost and received their due. 
It was an escape. 

And now?
Well, stories are still a release from daily life. Even if the manner of storytelling has changed. Small travelling acting troops have been replaced with hundred-million-dollar movie projects. We can even stream our favourite tales when we want, through the multitude of streaming services. There’s something for everyone. 
And the demand for stories has increased exponentially. Millions of books are available at the click of a computer keyboard (or phone). You can read them, watch them or listen to them whatever takes your preference. 
We are surrounded by stories. 
Real-life ones and made-up ones. Hundreds of genres and sub-genres opens the readers attention to new and established authors. 

All I have to do is look up my favourite subjects and I am once again surrounded by new tales that call at me to read. 

Looks like I’m in for a lot more long reading baths.

Here are some more great books from friends. 



A rebel with a cause.

Rebel has the best job in the world. She’s a bounty hunter.
And her targets are vampires, werewolves, shifters, and other supernatural entities.
Yes, she’s a supernatural bounty hunter.

It’s not an easy job, but it’s necessary, and it’s training.

Because Rebel has a quest, one that might kill her, but then, that’s a typical day in the human’s life. Yes, she’s human, but that hasn’t stopped her yet, and it won’t stop her now. She will learn who or what exactly killed her brother.



I almost killed Death. Seriously, you would think supernatural beings could cross roads safely. Luckily for me, Death can’t die however hard a car hits him. The guy was unharmed but unimpressed—and strangely attractive in a rain-soaked, not-dead way.

But I have a horrible feeling Death followed me.

I discover why when my stalker Death introduces me to three other friends who’re looking for me too. Guess who they are?
When Heath, Joss, Xander and Ewan inform me they’re the Four Horsemen, I know they’re not lying because nobody can lie to me. Even worse, I can’t lie at all and I’ve no idea why—I swear my parents cursed me when they named me Verity. Needless to say, none of this helps my social life.
Social life? Gone. I’m now helping my four dark and dangerous new companions police the supernatural world. This wasn’t how I predicted my life, but pursuing demons, vampires and fae is a hell of a lot more interesting than my boring job in tech support.

I leave my old life to move in with my smorgasbord of gorgeous guys and that’s where the trouble starts. There’s a weird bond between us all—broody Heath, gentle Joss, arrogant Xander, and the enigmatic Ewan who watches me with suspicion.
I’m a little concerned by the whole ‘Four Horsemen and the Apocalypse’ scenario and exactly where I fit in. Something big threatens the world and our connection takes hold in a strange but not entirely unpleasant way. Who wouldn’t want to be the centre of four
guys’ world?
My bond with the Four Horsemen is about to become complicated on oh-so-many levels.



A darkness falls over the land when the Queen of Rurith dies.

Consumed with grief, King Ivar blames their son, Prince Leif, for her demise, and locks him away in the castle.

The Prince is left in total despair, until a girl, with hair the colour of a red sunset and green eyes shows him mercy.

For six years she visits him in secret, giving him hope where none existed before.

But Ruith hides many treacherous things that threaten to bring the Kingdom to its knees.

Until the Prince and his beastly curse are released.


The primal rule of winning: don’t fall in love with the contender.

Three months shy of my eighteenth birthday, I’m forced to return to Colorado. Even though it’s been six years, and the wolves of my all-male pack don’t recognize me, I recognize them. People who shun others because of their gender are hard to forget.
Especially Liam Kolane—son of Heath, the crudest and cruelest Alpha to have ruled the Boulder Pack. Liam is as handsome as he is infuriating, as kind as he is punishing, and he makes my traitorous heart race, which is unfortunate. After all, he’s a Kolane. Like father like son, right?

When Heath dies, Liam vies to become the new Alpha and no one dares to challenge him.
Except me.
Thus begins a treacherous game.

The rules: winner takes all…including loser’s life.
