Growing Amaranth

For as long as she can remember, the cottage was the whole world.

Amaranth has never known a life outside of the walls of her mother’s quaint cottage. With its magnificent gardens, the cottage has served as a wonderland of adventure and contentment her entire life. Without a care or concern for the outside world, Amaranth lives in peaceful ignorance--until the day that she meets William.

Suddenly the world is a much bigger place.

Even though she was raised to believe that boys are evil and untrustworthy, Amaranth cannot help but fall for the kind and gentle William. It was only when their dalliance is uncovered that Amaranth begins to realize the true darkness within the cottage. Torn between first love and the love of her mother, Amaranth must navigate her way through the shadows and decide who she truly is.

Unmasking Cassandra

Some people choose their demons, others are cursed with them…

Cassandra is not a typical princess—nor will she ever be. Cursed with the bountiful, scarlet curls of a Daemos' Own, she has been hidden away by her troubled parents to keep her—and their kingdom—safe. In her restricted chambers, she channels her brilliant mind into art and music. It is only with the kind aid of some unlikely companions that Cassandra finally begins to challenge the legends of old and rethink what it means to be a Daemos’ Own.

In a world that has forsaken her, Cassandra must navigate the desolate life she has been given while avoiding the animosity of her vengeful brother. For her, the road to recognition, redemption, and romance will either be her greatest triumph or her ultimate defeat.
