“These books are chock full of fabulous, complex characters and a beautifully-detailed world of magic like you’ve never read before.”

– Reviewer

Bound by Duty, book one in the Bound series:

Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she’s an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she’s betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn’t even know his name. 

Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become. 

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?

Continue Amelia’s story in Bound by Spells and Bound by Prophecy. Then, enjoy the bonus novella, Bound Together.

“Each book keeps you guessing and will blow your mind with new revelations and twists you didn’t see coming. A fantastic group of characters that are three-dimensional and grow as people throughout the series.”

– Reviewer

“This is definitely a series that needs to be on your TBR pile! These books are chock full of fabulous and complex characters and a beautifully detailed world of magic like you’ve never read before.”

– Lenore

“With love, magic and a little bit of mayhem you will not be able to put these books down! They are definitely a ‘one-sitting’ read!!! You will love to hate the villians…they are truly the worst of the worst. Even the secondary characters will manage to steal your heart!”

– MissPhyre

“I highly recommend the Bound series. Smith delivers a unique twist on the usual magic and shapeshifter tale. There’s suspense, romance, action, and intrigue. The plot is great and will definitely give you a book hangover. But, it is so worth the trip!”

– Amazon Customer

Stormy Bio Pic

Stormy Smith calls Iowa’s capital home now, but was raised in a tiny town in the Southeast corner of the state. She grew to love books honestly, having a mom that read voraciously and instilled that same love in her. She knew quickly stories of fantasy were her favorite, and even as an adult gravitates toward paranormal stories in any form.

Writing a book had never been an aspiration, but suddenly the story was there and couldn’t be stopped. When she isn’t working on, or thinking about, her books, Stormy’s favorite places include bar patios, live music shows, her yoga mat or anywhere she can relax with her husband or girlfriends.

Bound by Spells (Bound, #2) by Stormy Smith
Publication date: March 19th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal

cooltext1889161239 copyAidan Montgomery hadn’t been prepared for Amelia Bradbury to walk in and then out of his life. He also hadn’t expected to find the powerful magic hidden deep within him for the last nineteen years, but he’s embracing it — finding more control and more answers every day. Now, with the help of Amelia’s best friend, Bethany, Aidan is on a quest to understand his destiny and find Amelia.

Amelia decided to stand by her duty, which meant walking away from her first chance at love. Trapped in Cresthaven at the Queen’s mercy, she spends her days with Micah — an ally she still holds at arm’s length — struggling to manage her heartbreak while keeping her mind focused on the task at hand. As she continues to unlock the secrets of the Keeper power, Queen Julia’s true motives reveal themselves, forcing Amelia to decide, yet again, how much she’s willing to sacrifice.

Will Aidan get to Amelia before it’s too late, or will the very power that sustains them keep them apart?

cooltext1921345213 copyToday, we’re talking about the amazing urban fantasy, Bound by Spells.

Read the first book in the series first, of course, but once you finish this one you’re sure to be salivating for the next release in this not-to-be-missed romantic paranormal series.”

From Amelia – Bound by Spells

I stayed true to the promise I had made myself. Once Micah drove us away, I hadn’t cried another tear. But as his SUV took me farther from Aidan, the madness within me spread, burrowing into every crevice and threatening to push me over the edge. I heard her voice, but couldn’t make out the words. It was all emotion and sound and color, but nothing I could understand. It was a feral agony and it consumed me.

I didn’t understand what made today different, but with every mile we drove, it got worse. I was in no physical danger. There were no threats. Still, my small violet light was reduced to a tiny flame as the dark blot of power the Keeper magic represented took over. After Uncle Derreck had explained my power came from five female Elders, I had taken to personifying my Keeper as a girl instead of just a thing. And right now, she was pushing me past anything we’d experienced to date. My head throbbed, sweat built on my forehead, and it sounded like a horde of bees had taken up space between my ears. My blood raced in my veins and the violet smoke I’d grown to love turned on me, swirling around my fingers and building in my palms, even when I willed it back down. She raged in my mind, wailing and screaming in a multitude of tones and pitches, making me want to bash my head against the glass of the window just to let it out and make it stop. Micah kept glancing my way, never fully turning to look at me, but watching me as the situation grew worse. Finally, he stopped the car and turned to me. “Amelia,” he said softly, reaching a hand in my direction. My head snapped toward him and I could only stare, panicked, at his outstretched hand.

“Don’t touch me,” I gritted out through clenched teeth. I hoped he could see the fear. I was teetering on the edge of losing myself to her and even with everything we’d been through, I didn’t want to hurt him.

He slowly retracted his hand and nodded. “Okay, I won’t touch you. But, Amelia, you have to control this. Or, at least, just make it back to Esmerelda’s. The room will quiet the pain.” He threw the car into drive and punched the gas as he continued to watch me out of the corner of his eye.

The room. I sighed audibly. For the first time, I was looking forward to the enchanted bedroom quelling my power. I could feel my mother’s bracelet in my pocket, but there was no way I was putting it back on. I knew nothing about the bracelet or what it may have been meant to do. The only sure thing was it had given me my power back, and right now, all I wanted was for that power to go away. If only Micah understood this wasn’t pain. Pain I could shove into a little box and file away in the back of my mind. This was agony. This was the very fabric of my soul being shredded into jagged pieces, slicing and splitting me open, then dropping to the ground beside my broken heart.

The excerpts are not full-length novels and are only intended to provide samples of multiple stories to expose you to new works. Included are contemporary romance, fantasy, science fiction, dystopian and paranormal stories.

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?

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? 

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. 

Stormy Smith – Bound by Duty

Amelia Bradbury is the last living Elder. She has power she can’t control and has been forced to hide, while a prophecy dictates her fate even as she fights for a normal life. She faces a betrothal she can’t stop and, on top of it all, she’s lost her heart to a human. When the whole truth comes to light, will Amelia choose her duty or her heart?

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 spark her people need to reignite.

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?
