Just My Luck

Karma's a beach.

Marty has terrible luck, and she knows exactly why. While working as a housekeeper at a ritzy hotel in Maui, Marty made it a habit to steal from the guests. What better way to stick it to the rich snobs they have to clean up after than to take their stuff? Marty knows how to get her luck back: She just has to return Every. Single. Item.

When Marty meets Will, a new guest who is staying for the summer, she does the one thing she always promised herself she'd never do—fall for a tourist. But Will's special, different from the other guests at the hotel. Maybe Marty's luck is finally turning around.

When a string of events threatens their relationship, Marty has to find a way to get those items back to their original owners... or she’ll be saying goodbye to Will forever.

An ordinary human girl turned alien princess finally chooses her own destiny in this epic adventure.

On Earth, Delaney is a normal teenager who recently graduated high school with a fantastic best friend and a loving boyfriend.

But Delaney isn’t on Earth. She’s on Xenith, a war-torn planet half a galaxy away. Originally mistaken for an alien princess, Delaney has gone from kidnapped imposter to the recognized heir to an alien throne. Oh, and she’s engaged to the prince of an enemy nation whose ruthless father is on the warpath.

Torn between two planets, two fates, and two loves, Delaney is finally ready to choose her own destiny in this stunningly epic conclusion to Chani Lynn Feener’s Xenith Trilogy.
