Meet Mace and Ember in Book 1 Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things by Martina McAtee




17 year old Ember Denning has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her own father dies, Ember learns her whole life is a lie. Standing in the cemetery that’s been her sanctuary, she’s threatened by the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen and rescued by two people who claim to be her family. They say she’s special, that she has a supernatural gift like them…they just don’t know exactly what it is.

They take her to a small Florida town, where Ember’s life takes a turn for the weird. She’s living with her reaper cousins, an orphaned werewolf pack, a faery and a human genius. Ember’s powers are growing stronger, morphing into something bigger than anything anybody anticipated. Ember has questions but nobody has answers. Nobody knows what she is. They only know her mysterious magical gift is trying to kill them and that beautiful dangerous boy from the cemetery may be the only thing standing between her and death.

As Ember’s talents are revealed so are the secrets her father hid and those in power who would seek to destroy her. What’s worse, saving Ember has put her cousins in danger and turned her friend’s lives upside down. Ember must learn to embrace her magic or risk losing the family she’s pieced together.

#FundFirstNight 

This Halloween, we urgently need your support to help children, toddlers and babies who’ve been accused of witchcraft. The crimes inflicted on them are sickening. Many will be abused and tortured. Others may even be murdered. 

That’s why I’m writing to ask you to donate £5 of your ‘Trick or treat’ money to help us give a traumatised child shelter for a night. 

These accusations aren’t part of some Halloween-inspired game. There’s no fancy dress, no face-paint. This is all too devastatingly, shockingly real. Our research shows that 80% of accused children will run away or be abandoned by their parents. 

Just think about that for a second. A parent abandoning their child because they believe they’re a witch. And this is something that’s happening day after day, week after week. 

It’s so important that these children have somewhere to turn – and that’s just what our Safe Child Emergency Centre offers. But this centre wouldn’t exist without the ongoing generosity of people like you. We receive no government funding. 

That’s why we urgently – and I mean urgently – need your support this Halloween. Please can you donate £5 to fund the first night for a child in our emergency centre? Or better still, set up a monthly Direct Debit for the same amount. 

Our centre gives children protection, medical care, legal support and counseling. Children receive a comfortable bed and, most importantly, are cared for by adults who know they’re just a little boy or girl, not a witch. 

For some children, this will be the first time in their young life that they feel safe. And that feeling – that sense of security – is something only people like you can make possible. 

So please – donate £5 or whatever you can afford and help pay for a child’s first night in our emergency centre. 

Thank you, 

Dr Emilie Secker


Please support the Thunderclap to help raise awareness and raise money to help the kids!

Crystal Lake, Montana - Book 1


By Christa Ann
Genre: Contemporary western romance
Heat level: 3 flames (sensual to sizzling)





Summary:
Widow Shannon Ward lives for her job and her children.  Her closed off heart helps her hide from the pain of losing her husband suddenly. Her four best friends and children decide she needs to get out and live again.  A ‘girls only’ vacation to the Mountains of Montana might be just what she needs. Finding love again is farthest from her mind and definitely not on her to-do list. However, a certain sexy rancher could change her mind…
Rancher Ryan Collins finally divorced his high school sweetheart. The only good thing that came out of the marriage were his three children. Ryan is done with love and women. He's happy with running his ranch and being a bachelor…or so he thinks until he meets Shannon.
Two hearts closed off from love and determined to stay that way, until that first glance. Will Shannon and Ryan risk their hearts one more time or just walk away?
