Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

Light Housekeeping: Marketplace and Internet Fairness Act and Cheap Reads 0 comments

broom.panMarketplace and Internet Fairness Act
Many of you live in a state where Amazon has a physical presence (known as a nexus) and state sales taxes are collected on your purchases. Customers who live in other states may have their purchases taxed in the near future if the Marketplace and Internet Fairness Act is approved.
Earlier this week six Senators introduced legislation that combines the Marketplace Fairness Act and the Internet Tax Freedom Act into a single bill: the Marketplace and Internet Fairness Act. Bipartisan support for the two bills in both houses of Congress could mean that the combined bill will be approved this year. “Amazon.com has long supported a simplified nationwide approach that is evenhandedly applied and applicable to all but the smallest volume sellers,” Amazon VP Paul Misener wrote in a letter supporting the Marketplace Fairness bill. The bill would allow states to require online and other out-of-state retailers to collect sales and use tax.
