Caylie Marcoe – Choose Us
Riley Logan and Travis Grayson have been best friends for fifteen years. Riley never imagined that working as Travis’s personal assistant would land her the job of undercover spy on a televised dating show meant to find him love. Travis forced her into it and now the last girl she expected is the one she wants him to choose – her.
Theresa Kay – Dark Expanse
In a world of military space stations, planetary jumps and alien offensives, nineteen-year-old Eva Braebel's life has never been easy. She's small. She's female. And she earned the ire of a powerful General at a young age. With hard work and the support of her friends, she achieves more than she ever dreamed possible: A position as flight squadron leader and the man who she loves by her side. Eva just got everything she's ever wanted, but how long can she keep it?
Kat Nichols – Family Secrets
Sophia Morganthal is an orphan that not only found herself flung halfway across the country to live with relatives she never knew existed, but that those relatives came from a long line of witches that require her to be initiated into their coven within the year to prevent a battle for leadership. As Sophia learns more about herself, and what being initiated into Blackthorne coven really means, she must answer the ultimate question – would she give up everything for her family?
Regan Claire – Gathering Water
Della was handed a slim folder the day she turned eighteen. Inside it was the name of her mother and the identity of a family that never tried to pull her from the foster system she hates. When Della moves across the country to claim the only pieces of her mother that still remain, she finds herself pulled into an unimaginable world —one on the brink of war — and it takes everything Della has not to drown in a destiny she didn't choose. Can she move past her anger and pain to save the people she’s come to love, or will her enemies strike before Della has the chance to become the only weapon capable of destroying them?
Elizabeth Tuttle – Spark of Light
Nearly a century ago the world was decimated by a magical war. In their defeat, elves were captured by humans, cut off from their magic, and broken down into lifeless, drone-like slaves. Avery is different. Never completely broken, she must pretend in order to survive. But when love sparks the light inside Avery, her magic blooms to full force. It’s only once she is ripped away from this love that Avery finds herself at The Farm, facing truths she never expected and the possibility that she could be the spark her people need to reignite.

Sampler chapters from various stories, but Nook readers should be forewarned that some of the authors complete work is not available on Nook store. For example, Regan Claire's "Gathering Water" opens with chapters 4 and 5, but if you want to read more the story is not available on Nook. This one had ok characters, unspecified island setting, no paranormal elements in the two chapters here, just a basic intro to the heroine's arrival, and meeting formerly unknown family characters. Obviously written for young adults. The sampler is free, but not worth saving.

May 1, 2015 By Lenore L Kosinski Format:Kindle Edition THIS HAS EVERYTHING! It's no secret I'm a HUGE fan of ALL of the Rebel Writers, and this is the PERFECT way to get a sample of their first books!! Regan Claire – Gathering Water LOVED this unique and richly developed paranormal world! Della was a treat to read, and Cash (Della's cousin) was a surprise show stealer! The second half of the book had me on the edge of my seat, breathless to the very end! Theresa Kay – Dark Expanse This novella took me through all of the emotions, from hilarity to despair. I fell in love with pretty much every character in such a short span of time (Eva is da bomb for a lead heroine). It totally reminded me of why I love *watching* Sci-Fi, so it filled a gaping hole in my life. Caylie Marcoe – Choose Us Um, a best friends to lovers story?? YES PLEASE!! This book was soooooo cute and had the perfect balance of funny moments mixed with tension and obstacles. You will fall in LOVE with Travis and Riley. Stormy Smith – Bound by Duty Another unique and richly developed paranormal world! Loved the development of the heroine and watching her come to terms with these amazing powers of hers. Contains another show stealing secondary character (the best friend Bethany) and a totally swoon-worthy book boy. Elizabeth Tuttle – Spark of Light This book blew me out of the water! It had AMAZING characters that I fell in absolute love with (the heroine and hero are some of my faves of all time), and the ultimate in rich world building -- I could really picture how this world came to be, and it left my heart a bit broken. Kat Nichols – Family Secrets Who doesn't love a story with witches? This book is filled with a unique view of the typical paranormal world, and contains one of the cutest YA book boys I've read in a while. So as you can see, I am the ultimate fan and highly recommend ALL of these books, so this is a no brainer! Who doesn't love free samples??
