Blood Ops leader Dr. O is chained in the bowels of Steele City, the state’s maximum security prison, and the clock is ticking for Nina and Frankie to bust him out.
Now that supernatural creatures are out of the closet, Providence is descending into an Apocalyptic wasteland. With the abrupt shut down Blood Ops, Nina and Frankie are on their own to save Dr. O and the other supernatural prisoners from certain death. Not knowing where Demon Mayor Bertrand’s loyalties lie, they are forced to rely on some questionable allies to battle Leila, a powerful vampire/witch hybrid hell bent on creating a indestructible supernatural army. She also happens to be Nina’s mom.
Alliances are tested and relationships fractured as Nina and her band of supernatural crime fighting misfits are pushed to the breaking point.
About the Author:
Karen Greco is originally from Rhode Island and loves hot wieners from New York System, but can't stand coffee milk. She studied playwriting in college (and won an award or two). After not writing plays for a long time, a life-long obsession with exorcists and Dracula drew her to urban fantasy, where she decapitates characters with impunity. Steele City Blues is the third book in the Hell’s Belle series, after Hell’s Belle (the first) and Tainted Blood (number two). She writes contemporary romance for a small press under the pen-name Jillian Sterling, and has a day job in entertainment publicity. She does not speak in the third person all that often.

YA Romance Release Date: November 4th 2014 Clean
What does a high school boy do if he
thinks the girl of his dreams will be an assistant for the softball
team his mother coaches? Easy! He volunteers to be an assistant, too.
That's what Jace Waldron does in Fast-Pitch
might be his only chance to make a move on Stephanie Thornapple while
her boyfriend is away. But Jace's plans go awry, and soon he faces
the double challenge of coaching a team of mischievous preteen girls
and learning there is more to romance than physical attraction.
"The books has
some unexpected twists and turns as the likeable but somewhat hapless
Jace grows into a young man who takes responsibility for his life and
his choices. Softball aficionados will have a particular affinity for
this book because its game descriptions are extensive and detailed.
Those who don't know softball will come to like and admire the young
protagonist." Gretchen Hirsch, author and book doctor
"I enjoyed this
young adult novel by Clay Cormany. The story told from a guy's
perspective made it especially interesting. I think a lot of young
women would enjoy seeing romance from a guy's point of view. I also
liked that the novel was innocent without gratuitous sex or swear
words." Paulita Kincer, author of The
Summer of France and
the spin on a fastball, Fast-Pitch Love puts a new spin on the age
old boy meets girl phenomenon. And what a wonderful spin it is. Clay
Cormany weaves together the twin themes of teenage infatuation and a
girls’ softball team. Along the way he does a wonderful job of
mixing the excitement of youth sports with the impending showdown
between two suitors of the same pretty girl."
Love is an unusual coming-of-age story since it's told from the guy's
point of view. The characters are likeable and believable; the action
well paced. You don't need to be a softball player, or even an
athlete, to thoroughly enjoy Fast-Pitch Love." Louise

State Board of Education. His creative work has appeared in numerous
central Ohio publications, includingthe Columbus
