And she would do everything she could to prove they were meant to be.

Her cupcake bakery went under, her roommate at her expensive apartment left her high and dry, and her girlfriend just reacted to “I love you” with “No thanks.” Her sophisticated metropolitan dream has crumbled all around her, and the only thing left to do is pull up stakes and return to the small town where she grew up.

What could be worse than limping home in defeat? The minute she steps off the train, Scarlett finds out: her first love, Joan, is waiting there to drive her into town, looking like the picture of sexy confidence. Joan was once a scared, self-conscious girl; now she’s come into her own as a mechanic and soccer coach, and Scarlett can’t help but wonder what might have been.

LATE NIGHT AT LUND’S
by Beth Lyons

Available in Kindle Unlimited
Fantasy / LitRPG

A dental hygienist walks into a bar…..

Dental hygienist Isa Chamberlin thought the biggest challenge in her life was getting over a messy breakup, but when she pops into a new neighborhood bar, she finds herself in a different world, one filled with wizards, spells, and monsters. Join Isa as she explores unfamiliar surroundings, uncovers new skills, and learns to level. Magic and monsters, allies and enemies, romance and danger, all of it just on the other side of a simple door.

“Wear these bracers with pride.” The half-orc slid first one bracer and then the other over Isa’s forearms. “Fight with your heart,” he said as he pulled the laces tight. “And come back with a story to tell. That is what an adventurer does.” …….

This novel is part of the growing fantasy sub-genre called LitRPG. Think of it as a novelized role-playing game. The characters have stats and abilities and gear, just like video game characters, and their successes and failures were largely determined by the roll of the dice – the 20-sided variety. If you like games, fantasy, and funny adventure stories, you’ll feel right at home at Lund’s Tavern.
