New From Bywater Books - For Now, For Always by Marianne K. Martin
Renee Parker knows what love is and what love does. She was only seventeen when she fought social services for the right to raise her four younger siblings. Fought and won. Now the challenge is to parent kids scarred by a step-dad's suicide and a mother's imprisonment. But Renee doesn't think twice about sacrificing her own future to give her brothers and sisters their best shot at life. Renee knows what love is and what love does.
But then a different kind of love threatens everything Renee has built. Meeting pediatric nurse Olivia Dumont convinces Renee there is room in her heart for someone outside the family. But not everyone approves of the choices of her heart. The watchful eye of social worker Millie Gordon is always on the Parker family. And Millie knows what's right and what's wrong.
Driven to desperation, Renee faces the most agonizing decision of her life..

A Nice Girl Like You by Tyree Campbell
Meet seven nice girls of science fiction--a corporate detective, a couple from a long forgotten colony, the last woman on Earth, an outcast teenager, a reclusive archaeologist, and a soft-hearted assassin. Now see them cope with murder, prohibitions, survival, loneliness, relationships, and revenge. Tyree Campbell deftly blurs the lines of what it is to be a nice girl in an out-of-this-world collection of stories.

November 11th, 2007
Years ago, Lorna Malachi, a frightened teenager, was plunged into a nightmare called Blue Ridge Women's Correctional Facility. Terrified and desperate to belong, she sold her soul one piece at a time. She survived to sit atop the ever-shifting trash heap of prison society.
Lorna has learned the hard way not to trust anyone, particularly penal system virgins like Kellie Holloway, her unrepentant new cellmate. But Kellie's pride and cluelessness guarantee that without help, she won't last long.
Together, Kellie and Lorna navigate through an oppressive, hidden world where the lines between right and wrong blur, sexual passion is forbidden but explosive, and love is the biggest risk of all.
