This is my last New Releases post for the year. It’s hard to believe that it is December already. There are 3 books that are coming out this month that I am excited about.

Evil Lurks Beneath by Jennifer Anne Davis
Upon a deathbed, a secret is whispered-breathing life into a long dormant evil.
Mabel finds herself locked in the kingdom’s legendary dungeon-not for a crime she committed, but simply for existing. When she manages to escape, she comes face-to-face with the man sent to kill her, righting a wrong committed twenty-one years ago.
When Declan discovers something from his father’s past, he realizes it has the power to destroy the kingdom of Valdis. As the Crown Prince, he has an obligation to protect his people. Suddenly torn between duty, family, love, and loyalty, he must decide how much he is willing to sacrifice for what is right.
Brielle has always enjoyed living a quiet life at home with her books, despite being the daughter of the duke of Miervades. However, when the king and prince arrive unexpectedly at her father’s doorstep demanding back taxes, a bargain is made, leaving her as the insurance. Finding herself engaged to the Crown Prince Declan, Brielle is thrust into a world she knows little about.
One kingdom. Three people. And a secret big enough to destroy it all.
The Book Witch by Melanie Karsak
The Chancellor Fairy Tales #5
Add to Goodreads
A bookish witch struggling to tame her magic.
A single father fighting to keep his business afloat.
They say opposites attract, but there have never been two more opposite people than Stone Schneider and me. Stone, the brawny owner of the Chancellor Brewery and Biergarten, is my definition of nemesis. His noisy pub is a constant source of irritation. Where my bookshop brings beauty and stories to the world, Stone brings a Friday-night cover band.
Even though Stone has the most adorable, bookish child on the planet, that handsome tapster and I cannot find a way to get along. If Stone could stop being annoying for five seconds, I might ask him out. But when Stone breaks yet another business agreement between us—just in time for the holiday season—all bets are off.
Despite my coven’s warnings, it seems like just a little book magic would do the trick to bend things my way. But in Chancellor, magic has a mind of its own, and Lady Winter will have her way this Christmas season.
Meet Paige and Stone in The Book Witch, a delightful holiday-themed, sweet, clean romance set in the magical small town of Chancellor. The Book Witch is a stand-alone novel in a shared quirky, magical town.

The Heretic Royal by G.A. Aiken
The Scarred Earth Saga #3
GODS SAVE THE QUEEN!
Ainsley Farmerson has always planned to break free of the family business—and the family drama. But what was once farming, smithworking, and bickering over the dinner table has turned into open warfare between sisters. Sides have been taken, lives are on the line, and Ainsley has no doubt which sister must be queen. She’ll do whatever is necessary to take down the soulless Beatrix. Even if that means joining forces with angry battle nuns, irritating monks, and overbearing centaurs.
Gruffyn of the Torn Moon Clan has no time for human beings. And yet . . . there is something about the uncontrollable princess that he can’t ignore. Maybe it’s the way her eldest sisters underestimate her. Or her bravery facing down dragons and mad queens from distant lands. Whatever the reason, Gruff is willing to fight by this human’s side. Not only for the entertainment value, but because she’s right. Beatrix must never be queen. So whatever he has to do, whoever he has to destroy, Gruff will battle beside Ainsley. Fast. Hard. And with absolutely no mercy . . .
