Everything You Dream Is Real

by Lisa de Nikolits

Genre: Speculative Fantasy Fiction, Romance

From the award-winning “Queen of Canadian Speculative Fiction” comes a futuristic, multigenerational love story and a gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller. Filled with a cast of loveable, unforgettable, and entirely unique characters, the novel is a fabulous, adventure-filled sequel to highly-acclaimed The Rage Room – or read it as a standalone. Mad Max: Fury Road meets a futuristic True Romance in a highly original and imaginative novel.

Eleven years after a world war destroyed the consumer-driven, plastic-based existence of 2055, a new order of players jostles for power. Streaky electricity, ravaging drought, a scarcity of food, and deadly Monarch butterflies make for an increasingly desperate situation.

Worlds collide when both Mother and Sharps’s children are kidnapped by the unstable plastic surgeon Alpha Plus and taken to The Fountain of Youth compound. There’s flowing water and beautiful people and beautiful clothes and an incongruous convent where children wear smart uniforms and are tutored by nuns. Lovely, until they discover that a subterranean sex trade funds the compound and the man who leads it is mad. Can Mother, Sharps, and the others take down Alpha Plus and his army? Or will they too become pawns in his bid for world domination?

Hilarious and at the same time poignant, Everything You Dream Is Real is a fabulous, adventure-filled sequel to highly acclaimed The Rage Room that will delight fans both new and old.

Shedding light unto the darkness overpowering the globe and all its elements, the Seers face a losing battle against the Corrupts, who crave nothing but wealth, world-domination and a bleak universe of despair under their control. Kyle Wynn, who dives deep into the distorted life of a new Seer, learns as much as he can from the last remaining Elders as well as fellow-Seers, even if it means leaving behind everything he once believed in. While embarking on a crucial mission to keep the Corrupts at bay, the Seers try to strengthen their numbers before they come face-to-face with the Corrupts. Fearing the massive inevitable coming battle may be their very last, this immortal war threatens not only the pillars of Earth but existence in its entirety. It’s a race against time across the globe as the Seers search of the last ancient remnants left behind by the Original Seers, that is key to humanity’s survival, as they fend-off the Corrupts lest they fall into the wrong hangs.


About the Author

James Hai is a new author who has written a number of fictional suspense and scifi thrillers. With hopes of bringing them to life as he debut.

James has dabbled in the arts of various kind as a youngling; from drawing, painting, writing lyrics and songs during grade school years to singing horribly and loudly to the tunes of many oldies – like Whitney Houston, Elvis, Madonna, Roxette, Bette Midler, Cindy Lauper, Tina Turner and even earlier songs like Patsy Cline and Ben E. King, only because the songs had meaning in the words. And thus began James’ passion with words . . . writing.

Before he could even write his first piece of lyrics or stories, he had made up short stories and orally told them to family and friends through out the years. It was in telling these stories that he saw how alluring and intrigued people got when they listened to or heard a GOOD story. The better the story was the more intent they focused and the longer they gave attention to it.

Through the years working in the corporate world in recruiting, sales and business in general, he had learned how important story telling was. Key to his success in all those fields was his ability to tell a good story (of the company, of the people, of the product, and of the services he worked for) that allured and intrigued the customers enough to give it an ear to learn more.

That gift has always been a part of him, from his earlier years as his family fled as refugees with the eventual opportunity to live an American Dream. He continues to hone this skill, from his secondary school years living away from home and being raised by the SVDs (Society of Divine Word), a religious and dedicated organization of men & women who trained people to be religious and spiritual in their own unique way, until his graduation earning a Bachelors Degree in Philosophy and finally moving back to secular life.

After orally telling short random stories for so long, family and friends suggested he share those stories to a broader group, the general public. He now concentrate on sharing newly created stories with the inspiration of giving inspiration, shedding light in times of darkness, and giving hope when it seems hopeless. As he would state: Life can be Good, if you know how to appreciate it!

Flames of Winter Series, Book One

 

Historical Romance, Regency Romance, Historical Fiction

Date Published: January 12, 2022

In this Regency romance by USA Today bestselling author BREE WOLF, a young miss succeeds in escaping an unwanted marriage, only to end up finding love.

 

A kidnapped young miss.

A protective Scotsman.

And a cabin in the woods in the deep of winter.

 

England 1804: SARAH MORTENSEN, daughter to BARON HARTMORE, is desperate…desperate to escape yet another horrible match her parents arranged for her. Once, she saw it as her duty to save her family from ruin, to sacrifice herself in order to repay her father’s gambling debts.

But enough is enough.

Determined to escape her latest fiancé, Sarah places her trust in the Dowager Countess of Whickerton, known far and wide as Grandma Edie. After all, no one is as shrewd as the dowager countess…or as daring. Her plan is outrageous. Her intentions, however, are pure.

And so, Sarah agrees…to a feigned kidnapping…hoping to win her freedom.

KEIR MACKINNEAR, second son to the chief of CLAN MACKINNEAR in the Scottish Highlands, questions his own sanity when he finds himself kidnapping a shy, wide-eyed English lass from her London home in the middle of the night. He ought never have gone along with the Dowager Countess of Whickerton’s ludicrous plan! Yet here they are, hiding out in a cabin in the woods in the middle of winter!

Only the two of them!

Not counting two horses, an old goat, a handful of chickens and a haughty feline by the name of Loki.

What could go wrong?

After all, the dowager countess is not known to be wrong. Ever.

Yet what slips Keir’s mind is that Grandma Edie loves nothing more than to play matchmaker. And while she is certainly determined to save Sarah from her vile fiancé, she might just have an ulterior motive.

Why not hit two birds with one stone?


Some stories can be told in one book. Others cannot. This is one of those stories.

Once Upon a Kiss

by Shilpa Suraj

 


 “Kissing you means I’m beyond redemption.”

Orphaned at a young age, scraping together a life below the poverty line, Karam Bakshi has only ever wanted one thing. Success. With unrelenting focus and backbreaking effort, he has carved out the life of his dreams. And then he saw her and forgot that he had goals or a plan or even something as basic as ideas.

Shikha Sachdev, only daughter to a mining magnate and jilted fiancée to one of the most powerful men in the country, has never wanted for anything. And then she met him and realised that until that moment, she never had wanted anything. Not like she wanted him.

When passion collides with reason, when the heart goes to war with the brain, and old scabs rip open under the onslaught of new wounds, there is nowhere to hide, nowhere to run, and only one option left; gamble with everything you’ve got. Win and reach for a lifetime of happiness or lose and you lose everything, including your very sense of self.

Can Karam and Shikha ever find common ground? Or are they destined to orbit each other like the most tortured star-crossed lovers of eternity?

Read an Excerpt from Once Upon a Kiss


Karam stiffened at the sweet voice and the even sweeter sentiment it oozed. He didn’t do sweet. He turned slowly to face her. 

“Slumming again, Princess?”

Anger flared on those perfect features, but she composed herself a second later. You had to admire that level of control. She would have made the perfect politician’s wife. Kanak, on the other hand…a reluctant laugh huffed out of him. 

“Why are you like this?” she asked now, her tone bored but her eyes alive with something he recognised all too well. The same emotion thrummed through his veins, heating his blood and kickstarting his heart. 

He took a sip from his flask, a deliberately long one. He wanted to smack his lips, the gesture as pointed as it was obscene, when she stepped closer to him.

“You didn’t reply to my last message.” The soft words only stoked the heat.

“Didn’t have time.” The words were a low snarl in response. 

She cocked her head, those pretty hazel eyes seeing right through him and to the lonely, angry, always hungry boy he’d been and apparently, never outgrown. The boy who’d longed for a better life, for a full stomach, for a night without being whipped or beaten, for an affectionate touch, for someone, anyone really, to love him. 

A boy who’d thought he’d deserved better. A boy who’d wanted something pretty, something special in his life. A boy who’d dirtied and ruined everything he’d held in his hands. Including this woman.

He’d kissed her. And she’d lost everything. Her rich, powerful fiancé had ended their engagement, her family had shunned her, humiliated by her actions and her business had lost investors. Apparently, they’d been backing the woman who was going to marry Aakash Thakkar. Not someone who’d kiss an alley rat like him. 

“Go inside,” he told her softly.

But when did she ever listen to him?

“No,” she said, equally softly, stepping forward and into his space. 

“You really need to find a rich, pretty boy to practice this shit with, Princess.” The words were hoarse, his chest starting to heave. 

“But I don’t want to,” she murmured, her fingers pushing the hair back from his forehead, running through the strands. She gripped the back of his neck, the contact feeling like a brand on his skin.

“What do you want?” His hand fisted around his flask even as the other one gripped her hip, the skin soft and satiny under his callused palm. Her saree pallu whispered down one shoulder and slipped to the ground but neither of them noticed, their eyes only on each other.

“What. Do. You. Want?” The words were dragged from him. 

“You, Karam. Always you.” 

This time when she kissed him, he didn’t just go up in flames. He swore he’d burn the world down for a chance to do this again. And again.
