Love, Lucas by Chantele Sedgwick

Emancipated by M.G. Reyes
Six very different teens who have been legally liberated from parental control share a house in Venice Beach, acting like a family, and living their lies. No parents. No limits. No alibis. One witnessed a crime, another might be a murderer—and one’s been spying on them all.

Joyride by Anna Banks

The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker (The Witch Hunter, Book One)
Elizabeth is one of the king’s best witch hunters, until she’s accused of being a witch herself. When she is saved from execution by a powerful and dangerous wizard, Elizabeth is forced to redefine her ideas of right and wrong, of friends and enemies, and of love and hate.

The Saga of Gudrid the Far-Traveler by Nancy Marie Brown
Gudrid longs for more than a quiet domestic life. If Leif Eiriksson could sail west and find a rich new land, why not her? What else lay beyond the western edge of the world the Vikings knew?
