My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.
Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.
Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.
Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.
While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

Juneau set off on a cross-country journey with her new companion, Miles, to find her clan, which led them to a game preserve in New Mexico. Now Juneau’s people are finally within reach, and she will stop at nothing to save them. But she has a target on her back too, because unbeknownst to her she is the key to unlocking everything. To rescue her people—and herself—Juneau must discover what she and her abilities are truly capable of.

I wish there was only today, just right now, and no forever.
It seems fitting that I fell in love in Paris, the most beautiful city in the world. And if I pretend, I can almost believe that my life is normal and everyone I care about is safe.
But as long as I’m with Vincent, “normal” doesn’t exist. Gorgeous, charming, and witty, he’s everything you could ask for in a boyfriend—but his destiny is so much more.
Even more terrifying than his destiny are his dangerous enemies, enemies who will kill for immortality. How are Vincent and I supposed to be together forever if we’re always in danger?

Since Linda’s enraged husband refuses to notify the police, Kallene steps in to initiate a missing person search, not knowing it would soon become a murder investigation—or that she’d soon fall for the charming lead detective.

The Scooter: A Resister’s Vision of Life in 2050 is an optimist’s view of what life could be in thirty years. It dips into humankind’s past and present and predicts a future that is as bright as we want it to be. It is the story of a Frenchman who, in his quest to discover what tomorrow will bring, reads only disastrous scenarios reflecting what he perceives to be a society-wide collective depression. He gives himself a challenge. During an epic journey from the North of France to Holland—traveled entirely by kick scooter—he must take observations from personal experience, layman’s research, and conversations with his contacts from around the world, and use those sources to come up with a better solution than the predominant dire forecasts.
This book is therefore an act of resistance. It asks us to pause and consider, “Were things really better before?” and, “Are we truly on an unstoppable downward spiral?” The author’s answer is a resounding “No!” as he uses separate stages of his slow-motion road trip to illustrate his argument in eight selected areas of daily life. The book posits that freedom is the key to progress, and in our attempt to achieve it, humankind will cure past ills and lay a foundation for a fulfilling future. Lighthearted, unpretentious and with an undercurrent of truth, the visions range from tracing easily predictable progress—the next steps on the road we’re already traveling—to more daring or even utopian meanderings. It is all meant to provoke the reader’s reaction, because by imagining it, we are already starting to make it happen. A breath of fresh air in the midst of despair-filled news cycles, The Scooter will delight readers who want to clear their vision and focus on a future that we could all look forward to.
Karima Delli: “Fresh, simple, and joyful: A positive vision of the future while traveling to Holland on kick scooter. It will make you want to live in 2050!
