Book: Opposing Counsel
Author: Lisa Phillips
Publisher: Amazon Digital
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Piper Lewis has made a name for herself as one of the best and brightest family court attorneys in Atlanta, Georgia. Her grandfather, the senator, and her father, the criminal court judge, might have gotten her hired into the prestigious law firm she joined after graduating from Harvard Law. However, it was her hard work that earned her flawless litigation record, serving the firm’s high profile clients. Just when it seems the senior partners are finally prepared to reward her dedication, Piper is passed over once again by the firm’s newest legal eagle. And it is not the first time her new associate has passed her over.
Cameron Michaels first saw Piper sitting in a library at Harvard. She was from one of the most prestigious families in the South, and he was a poor scholarship kid from the Mississippi Bayou. Seven years later, he still feels like the kid from the Bayou, when he is seated across a conference table from the one woman he has never been able to forget. When he realizes how gravely the senior partners have underestimated Piper, Cameron wonders if perhaps all those years ago, he did too.
Novel: The Tithe
Author: Elle Hill
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Genre: Paranormal Romance
“Every seven years, seven persons from each of the ten towns must go into the desert, where they will enter into the realm of Elovah, their God.”
No one knows exactly what happens to these seventy Tithes, but everyone knows who: the “unworkables,” those with different physical and mental capacities. Joshua Barstow, raised for twenty years among her town’s holy women, is one of these seventy Tithes. She is joined by the effervescent Lynna, the scholarly Avery, and the amoral Blue, a man who has spent most of his life in total solitude.
Each night, an angel swoops down to take one of their numbers. Each night, that is, except the first, when the angel touches Josh… and leaves her. What is so special about Josh? She doesn’t feel special; she feels like a woman trying to survive while learning what it means to know friendship, community, and love.
How funny that she had to be sacrificed to find reasons to live.
