In the climactic fifth book of the Shards of Excalibur, Ariane, Wally, Flish, and Rex Major are on a collision course, converging on the resting place of the final piece of the sword: the hilt, long ago removed from its original hiding place by the descendants of King Arthur. When Wally uncovers its surprising location, far closer to hand than they’d ever guessed, it seems all Ariane and Wally have to do is claim it and reforge the sword to defeat Merlin forever.
Except…how, exactly, do you reforge a magical sword? Especially, how do you do it when the richest man in the world is on your trail and pouring all of his enormous resources into stopping you?
When the pieces of the sword are at last reunited, the long-closed door into Faerie swings open wide. Who – and what – emerges from it may destroy everything and everyone Wally and Ariane have fought so hard to save – and allow Rex Major to snatch victory from the very jaws of defeat.
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Amelia Judd’s Lucky in Love, the third in the Silver Bay romance series, now available at Audible. Elizabeth also narrated the first two books in this series – A Venture of the Heart and Crashing Together – also available at Audible.
A fun and sexy stand-alone Silver Bay novel by award-winning author Amelia Judd.
Single mom Claire Bennett needs to find a boyfriend. Fast. Problem is, she doesn’t have the time or desire (or maybe even the ability) to manage a relationship right now. Determined to avoid her pending public humiliation, Claire resorts to hiring a fake boyfriend.
Though unable to deny her troublesome attraction for her new faux beau, Claire’s confident her plan will work as long as she keeps her feet firmly planted on the ground. Never again will she get swept away in a whirlwind romance that leaves her dizzy, flat on her butt, and full of regret when it ends.
Having played many positions in his career, retired soccer star Ethan DuBois happily agrees to take on the role of pretend boyfriend. After all, spending two months with the beautiful, intelligent, and intriguingly independent Claire promises to be an amusing distraction from the real – and infinitely more frustrating – reason he’s back in Silver Bay.
But being with Claire soon makes Ethan realize he wants her as his partner for more than a short-term pretense. Will the clock run out before Ethan convinces Claire that life is always better when you’re part of a team?

The fourth shard of Excalibur might come with a price Ariane doesn’t want to pay: her mother.
Seeking to recover the shards of King Arthur’s sword Excalibur before Rex Major (the ancient sorcerer Merlin in a modern-day guise), Ariane and Wally have traveled around the world, and their quest is not yet over. Ariane’s magical powers as heir to the Lady of the Lake, combined with Wally’s clever thinking, have enabled them to hang on to two of the three shards they’ve located so far – but Rex Major still has one shard of his own and will stop at nothing to claim all the pieces for himself and use its power to rule Earth and invade the magical realm of Faerie.
And now Major has his eyes on a big prize: Ariane’s mother, who went missing after she refused the power of the Lady of the Lake.
Thanks to Wally, Ariane knows her mother is alive – and that Rex Major is trying to find her. If he succeeds, Ariane fears she’ll have no choice but to surrender the two shards she and Wally possess, because she’ll do anything – and give up everything – to have her mother back with her again.
Ariane and Wally race to the Caribbean as they try to find Ariane’s mother and the fourth shard of Excalibur before Major does. As they struggle to stop Major, Ariane and Wally face desperate danger…and must make the most difficult decisions of their lives.
