“On All Hallows’ Eve, after the stars align and the skies burn, I will return…”
Mark Hunter had recited the prophecy countless times. The exhibit about witchcraft in early Saint’s Grove was the most popular one in the museum where he worked. It just so happened to be his favorite exhibit too; it featured his ancestor Johan Jager, the witch hunter.
As much as Mark loved the legends, he never believed they could be true. But when the celestial event that the witch foretold occurs, it rips open the seals between worlds and unleashes the witch and chaos upon the unsuspecting town of Saint’s Grove and Mark has no choice but to believe. Luckily, not all evil has come through the portals; Alexander Kemp, who hunted witches alongside Mark’s ancestor, has come as well.
Witches, Alex assures Mark, are very real and very dangerous. And one of the worst ones has taken possession of Mark’s sister. The witch has come to Saint’s Grove to harness the same power that brought Alex across time and use it for evil. She has seven days to carry out her plan, before the rift between time and space closes.
As the time ticks down, Mark realizes he has another problem; Alex intends to use the rift to go home and Mark isn’t so sure he wants the man to leave. Now, he has seven days to defeat the witch, save his sister, and figure out how to ask the man he barely knows to stay in the future with him.

Everything changes on the evening someone tries to murder him. Albert narrowly escapes death and travels through time, crossing paths with a beautiful brunette who saves him.

Across the Universe by Elise Marion
Release date: October 11
Anika Butler lives a quiet, unremarkable life. Without friends, family, or a love life to keep her occupied, she spends her spare time daydreaming over the painting of a man who was born in the 1800s.
When she joins the other residents of Saint’s Grove to witness a rare lunar eclipse and planetary alignment, the man from the painting appears in front of her claiming to have traveled through time, and she will discover that she is anything but ordinary. When he tells her of their past lives together as lovers, Anika knows that it must be impossible … yet strange dreams begin to feel like memories, until she can no longer deny that something within her recognizes him as her eternal soul mate.
Isaac Parker lost everything when his fiancé, Aurora Barton, was murdered right before his eyes. The witch who killed her also afflicted him with a curse: he can never die, making it impossible for him to be reincarnated. When the eclipse and planetary alignment occurs, allowing him to travel through time, he returns to Saint’s Grove seeking the Star Anthame, the ancient weapon that was used to curse him. With only seven days to locate the relic and break his curse, this is his only hope for finding Aurora again in his next life. He never imagines he will find her in Saint’s Grove where he last saw her, now reincarnated as Anika Butler.
However, a witch with a grudge will re-emerge into their lives, forcing them to fight for their futures, and for love. If the curse isn’t broken, they may lose their chance at happiness together … not just in this life, but in all the lives to come.

The Ghost and the Belle by Rose Shababy
Releasing October 13
Always a loner, Irene Bell prefers to spend her days tending her little bookstore in the sleepy little Virginia town of Saint’s Grove. After all, she tells herself, what other company does a girl need when she has her books?
But when a much anticipated lunar eclipse and planetary alignments bring a meteor that tears a rift between realities, the entire town is thrown into chaos as mythology becomes reality.
A reality that includes a drop-dead gorgeous ghost named Benjamin Churchill, who appears naked and unconscious, smack dab in the middle of her store.
A chance meeting with a witch reveals he’s been cursed, his body and soul bound to his former office, now Irene’s bookstore. The only way to break the curse is to assemble the long-lost pieces of a mystical artifact known as the Star Anthame, a knife created by magic and cursed by the darkest witch Saint’s Grove has ever known. No one knows where the pieces lay, and worse, they aren’t the only ones looking for it.
Racing against a ticking clock, both Irene and Benjamin must fight the irresistible attraction between them.
Breaking the curse means Benjamin can finally cross over. Failing means he’ll be stuck between worlds for another thousand years. And no matter how hard they look, they can’t seem to find a way for him to stay.
What’s a girl to do when the man she loves is a ghost?
