Join us July 21 - August 29 as we celebrate Pauline Creeden's books

Part Steampunk, part Fantasy, all Romance… When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother’s side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales. Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park and left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair. Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.

Sam Austin and his wife mourn the loss of their only child and decide to make a fresh start at the space station.

  Chira Kelly thought she didn’t need anyone…until she met Ben.

Because of one ugly rumor, Chira lives as an outcast at her school. Which is fine with her, because she works better alone. Always has, always will. And at least she has her one and only true friend, Tasha. When Tasha insists that they join a group to visit a possibly haunted abandoned old schoolhouse, she's wary, but joins her friend. Because of that decision, their lives are in jeopardy as a malevolent spirit targets the group. Tragedies and accidents pick them off one by one, and Chira finds herself drawn to the one person who can see the truth. But can he protect her?

Left Behind for the Hunger Games generation


In a heart-racing thriller described as Falling Skies meet The Walking Dead, Jennie struggles to find a safe place for what’s left of her family. But it seems as though there is no place sacred, no place secure. First the aliens attacked the sun, making it dimmer, weaker, and half what it used to be. Then they attacked the water supply, killing one-third of Earth’s population with a bitter contaminate. And when they unleash a new terror on humankind, the victims will wish for death, but will not find it…

When the world shatters to pieces around her, will Jennie find the strength she needs to keep going?  

RATING: 4 1/2 stars

REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I've read another of Pauline Creeden's books, and it was amazing. This book was just as well-written. It grabbed me from the very beginning, and just kept holding onto me. It's a mixture of sci-fi, dystopian fiction with a smattering of a Christian theme going on. It's a unique mixture that I'm not sure many authors could pull off as well as this author does.
The characters are very well-written. Jennie is an amazingly strong young woman who steps up to the plate as a mother figure to her younger brother, when most 19 year old girls are not anywhere as responsible as she is portrayed. I know I certainly wasn't. The relationship between her and Hugh slowly blossomed and when his life was in danger, it really came into its own.
As with the novel I read from this author as well (Abiding Flame), they both have an open storyline, where the ending could absolutely lead into a sequel.
