Secrets, passion, betrayal…
Coming back to his childhood home after years of absence, Ben is unprepared for the secret, which is now revealed to him: his mother, Natasha, who used to be a brilliant pianist, is losing herself to early-onset Alzheimer’s, which turns the way her mind works into a riddle. His father has remarried, and his new wife, Anita, looks remarkably similar to Natasha–only much younger. In this state of being isolated, being apart from love, how will Ben react when it is so tempting to resort to blame and guilt? “In our family, forgiveness is something you pray for, something you yearn to receive–but so seldom do you give it to others.”

Behind his father’s back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him. These tapes, with his eloquent speech and her slang, reveal the story from two opposite viewpoints.

What emerges in this family is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.

Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods–where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more–the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen’s demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her. Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen’s grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

Ever wondered what it might be like to be a mail order bride?

Or the groom, already married to a woman he’s never laid eyes on?

On the Canadian prairies in 1886, having a mail order romance wasn’t unusual. Noah Ferguson desperately needed help on his farm. Annie Tompkins knew she couldn’t go on working in Lazenby’s cotton mill.

So she’d been a little less than honest in her letters, was that really so terrible?

It was unforgivable, Noah fumed. He’d wanted an older widow, and Annie was a young virgin. But even that wasn’t the full extent of her lies.

Problem is, Noah hasn’t exactly been straight with Annie, either, and his secret has the power to break Annie’s heart.

Can even a special Christmas gift make their marriage work?

Now Rachel and the man Brenda once thought she’d marry herself are expecting a child, and Rachel keeps inviting her over to have dinner with them.

Three novellas and an unforgettable short story, now available together in one festive package!

A Cowboy For Christmas by Katherine Garbera
Annie Prudhomme never expected to be back in Marietta, MT and her family is fond of reminding her that she left them and the town behind in search of better things. A humiliating divorce that cost her everything she’d gained has driven her back home and her family isn’t about to welcome her back into the fold. She’s in town to rebuild the old home that she inherited and to move on once again.

Carson Scott never forgot Annie or the way she left. Now that she’s back in town he’s realizing that the old flame still burns hot but he can’t risk his heart the way he did last time now that he has his son to think about it. Being trapped together during a December snowstorm gives them a chance to rekindle their romance but is Annie back for good or is she just looking for a cowboy for Christmas?

Christmas At Copper Mountain by Jane Porter
Since the loss of her family in a plane crash, Harley Diekerhoff has led a quiet life and keeps to herself. Taking the temporary job at the Copper Mountain Ranch as widower Brock Sheenan’s housekeeper seems perfect for her. But her calm cocoon is invaded with the arrival of Brock’s pre-teen twins, Mack and Molly who’ve never experienced a proper Christmas and before she knows it, Harley’s determined to make their holiday perfect.

Annoyed at first by Harley’s interference, Brock is secretly pleased she’s changed Mack and Molly’s world. It doesn’t hurt that he finds Harley incredibly attractive, fierce, smart and passionate. It’s also an added bonus that she’s not afraid to challenge him and get his blood heated! But when sparks fly and the attractions sizzles between them, Harley’s not so sure she can handle something permanent with this dark, taciturn cowboy who doesn’t know how to let her in. But Brock is determined to hold on to her and praying for a Christmas miracle…

Home For Christmas by Melissa McClone
Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Rachel Murphy loves the scent of gingerbread baking almost as much as she enjoys creating custom edible houses at Christmastime. But she needs a bigger kitchen if she wants to make the most of her impromptu holiday business.

Enter Nate Vaughn, handsome venture capitalist turned Montana dude ranch owner and her brother’s boss. Nate’s commercial kitchen is perfect for the baker. And he thinks she might be perfect for him…as a business partner.

After being burned by a celebrity baker, Rachel’s wary of Nate’s interest in her gingerbread houses, not to mention his mistletoe kisses. She should leave the Bar V5 ranch and return to Arizona. Or can Nate convince her she’s already home?

Mistletoe Magic by Melissa McClone
Spending a quiet Christmas housesitting and reading novels about hot cowboys sounds perfect to Caitlin. Until a stray kitten brings her face-to-face with Noah, her crush from college. Watching the handsome vet in action melts Caitlin’s heart and brings back long-forgotten emotion. She would be safer back at the house lost in the pages of a book. But a toe-curling mistletoe kiss tempts her to stay. Maybe she won’t be spending this Christmas… alone.

Veterinarian Noah Sullivan isn’t a Scrooge, but the Christmas Eve tradition of hanging mistletoe in the clinic’s waiting room annoys him. Kissing doesn’t belong at the Copper Mountain Animal Hospital. Noah rethinks his position when Caitlin Butler arrives with a stray kitten she found freezing in the snow. All he wants now is to maneuver the pretty preschool teacher under the mistletoe. If he’s not careful, he’ll wind up on Santa’s naughty list.

Navy SEAL Dan Hemmins goes head to head with soldier Sarah Metlin to prove once and for all that women can’t possibly qualify for an elite branch of the military, but when Sarah proves she’s not just one of the most qualified warriors he’s ever met, she’s also one of the smartest and sexiest, too, he’ll do whatever it takes to get closer to her, even if he has to challenge her to another contest…or three…or five!

When it comes to the love of his life, though, this alpha soldier does everything in his power to keep Jen Scott happy and safe. But when the tables are turned and Jen places herself in harm’s way for her job, their relationship is put to the test. Now Cash must learn to trust the woman he loves…or lose her forever.

YOURS FOR CHRISTMAS by ANNE MARSH. When Navy SEAL Zack Medina comes home to Strong, California for Christmas, he’s got more than a firefight on his hands. He needs to convince his estranged wife that ’tis the season to forgive…and that will take a Christmas miracle.

A battle of wills and a little mistletoe bring them together, but secrets may tear them apart.

She’s seen first-hand how transitory love can be after watching her mother fall in and out of marriage. Derek Tilden hammered home that truth when he joined the Navy to become a SEAL–he was the boy who couldn’t wait to see the world and she was the girl ready to plant deep roots. Now he’s back and asking her to marry him one last time…

They’re both in enemy crosshairs. Staying together is dangerous. Separating? Impossible.

FALL HARD (a SEALs Undone novella) by ZOE YORK. Jared Sutter has a simple rule when it comes to women: keep ‘em happy and keep ‘em at a distance. He’s got his reasons, and they all make sense until he falls for his neighbor and Cassie Bronson makes him want things he’s always kept off-limits.

Paradise Island, by Christopher Sherlock, is $2.99 today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Action & Adventure

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Paradise Island is a thriller set in modern day sub-Saharan Africa. The key protagonists are Candice Cain, a US photo-journalist; Carlos da Gama, the editor of a highly influential Mozambiquan newspaper and Courtney Regal, the owner and operator of a multi-national conglomerate with a South African heritage. The story opens with a dramatic, violent scene from Carlos’ early childhood, forty years before, in Angola and rapidly advances to Paradise Island, a semi-fictitious locale on the east coast of Mozambique.

Candice takes on an assignment to complete a photo essay on the effects of landmines on Paradise Island, a former holiday resort mined during the civil war in Mozambique. Candice has a tortured past – the only child of a professional soldier her father has brought her up like the son he never had, schooling her in all aspects of self-protection and the martial arts. At the time of the story Candice is building a reputation as a press photographer who exposes the dark side. She is still developing and has yet to come to terms with herself, especially her violent side.

Candice soon realizes that there is something sinister developing on the island when she fights off a gang of thugs who have been sent to kill her. During a series of fast escalating events, she meets Carlos da Gama, an investigative journalist who has come to Paradise Island to expose the situation.

Carlos was a charismatic student activist who was involved in the anti-apartheid at Wits University in Johannesburg in the seventies. Carlos was eventually deported by the South African security police and gained an international reputation as an outstanding journalist. Carlos is a brilliant orator, incredibly charismatic and without fear.

Candice and Carlos fall in love. They realize that a massive oil field is being developed which will inevitably destroy the marine reserve of the Paradise Archipelago, but that this finding pales into insignificance as they fight for their lives as they try to stop a revolution, masterminded by Courtney Regal, which is engulfing South Africa and its neighbouring states. Regal needs to eliminate Carlos and Candice if he is to succeed in his objective of gaining total economic and political control of the gigantic oil fields he has discovered.

The novel revolves around the uncertain future that faces sub-Saharan Africa in the new millennium as a result of corruption and the unscrupulous activities of big business. The novel reflects the underlying reality of modern day Africa – the continent may be an exciting place to live, but the subtext of violence, uncertainty and political opportunism is always present.

The DREAM which made her life a NIGHTMARE.

A string of murders dating back to 1987 and in all that time only one witness and she doesn’t even know she’s a witness!

Young lawyer Gaby has recently married and should be having the time of her life and yet a strange recurring dream is haunting her; she visits a psychologist and a psychic as she desperately attempts to figure it out. Then……it hits her; the memory floods back! Suddenly everything she thought she knew about herself, her family and her past is cast into doubt.

Someone she loves is a KILLER.

But who will believe her? He is popular, successful, charming and credible. The police will say that she has no evidence. People will call her mad, paranoid and spiteful. She must act fast; he is becoming more frenzied and is eyeing up his next victim.

Gaby selects her allies with great care, trusting few in her duplicitous new world and knowing every new piece of evidence she uncovers makes her more vulnerable.

She sets about assembling the evidence: secretively and urgently, before he strikes again. However, he gets wind of her suspicions and this time when he kills, it’s someone very close to Gaby, someone who knows the truth.

Suddenly she realises that she is up against more than just him: he has eminent and influential friends and the scales of justice are rigged against her.

What would you do? What will Gaby do?

A book that will make you wonder if you can ever trust anyone again and the safe answer…..is NO.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Darna shouldn’t have been born – priestesses aren’t supposed to have babies – and she most certainly shouldn’t see dragons. After all, no one else does, except in Anamat, or so the minstrels say.

She sets out for the city of Anamat. Along the way, she meets Myril, an older girl with frequent premonitions and an eerie sense of hearing.

Then there’s Iola, who is so dragon-struck that she actually wants to be a priestess. She’s blind to the corruption in the temples.

Thorat is Iola’s champion. He sees dragons as much as the girls do, but unlike them he blends easily in to a crowd.

Apart from these four, the city seems to be nearly as dragon-blind as the provinces. Darna scavenges for scraps, but apprenticeships cost more than she’s likely to earn. When she’s offered a sack of gold beads for a small bit of thieving, she takes her chances… and ends up angering the dragon herself.

Once Again , by Deborah Heal, is regularly $3.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Religious Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

FROM PROFESSOR RANDALL’S NOTEBOOK…

Field Research Location:
Columbia and Waterloo, Monroe County, Illinois.

Goal:
Discover where Fort Piggot was located on the Kaskaskia Trail, while staying clear of attractive, single colleagues (ie. Brett!) so as not to commit career suicide, while also keeping the “rewinding time” program secret, so Uncle Sam doesn’t turn into Big Brother.

Merrideth Randall’s day job is teaching history at McKendree College. But after hours she turns to her first love, historical research. And she has a tool other historians can only dream of—a computer program that rewinds time!

Merrideth makes a virtual visit to the 1780s, hoping to be the first to locate Fort Piggot. Along the way, she gets a first-hand look at the lives of the courageous pioneers of the Illinois Country, who withstood Indian attacks, hardship, and loneliness to settle the rich land.

One of the settlers is James Garretson, who risks his life to take the Gospel to the very tribe that wreaked havoc on his family. Merrideth is amazed that he could forgive a crime so huge. Hero or fool, James Garretson is the ancestor of her colleague Brett, a physics professor at McKendree College.

With her findings, Merrideth is able to help Brett with his genealogy, but she can’t tell him everything she learned—like that he inherited his black hair and green eyes from James Garretson, or that his aunt’s poetry is eerily similar to the verse Garretson’s wife Isabelle used to compose at her spinning wheel.

Brett has rock-star status on campus, but amazingly enough, he seems to be pursuing Merrideth—in spite of her firm policy against dating co-workers. She would love to tell him about her amazing program, but discretion is not his strong suit. She has secrets about herself that she’d just as soon he didn’t find out either. One virtue Brett does have is patience, and he’s quite willing to wait for Merrideth to figure things out.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

An out of this world Christmas sci-fi mystery!

There is a continual pairing of pretty, delicate aesthetics and dark visceral imagery. This novel is a true mystery for teens and adults of all ages that touches on uplifting messages.

The story starts in…20,000 BC where two children, a girl age nine and a boy age six, stroll to the edge of a marsh. They wear tight-fitting material that shimmers in the bright sun, and their shoes are off revealing webbed toes. The children explore the area. In thick foliage, they hear whimpering from small, brown, wolf-like pups with stripes similar to a zebras. The girl takes one of the pups. The loud angry cry of an animal frightens the children. They see in the distance a full-sized wolf standing upright on its rear feet. The wolf drops on all fours and begins chasing them. Fear registers on their faces. The howling wind drowns out their distressed cries. The girl sets the pup on the ground, and they dash up a hill running for their lives. The wolf is sure to catch the slower boy. The girl stops and bravely faces the approaching menace. Almost as if in slow motion, the wolf is closer to her…closer…ever closer. The wolf cry’s Arrrrrk! Arrrrrk! She can see white fangs. The wolf’s eyes flare wide…closer…

In current times, a seventeen year old girl on an archeological dig finds the children’s footprints left from 20,000 BC. The footprints become the discovery of the Century.

What happened to the children from so long ago?

Make Me a Real Girl, by Rachel Humphrey – D’aigle, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars based on 63 customer reviews.

Category: Fantasy

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Witches of The Demon Isle- A Little Bit Funny, A Little Bit Romantic, and Around-the-Clock Supernatural Trouble… Rated Similar to TV 14, for mild language, some violence and implied sexual situations.

The Howard Witches, three siblings charged with protecting The Demon Isle…

Charlie, the werewolf.
Michael, the empathic death reader.
Melinda, living under self-inflicted house arrest. Her gift: prophetic dreams of people about to die.

Their mentor, the four-hundred year old Vampire, William Wakefield. Charming, ridiculously handsome, and walking a dangerous line between sinking into darkness and living in the light. In constant temptation to declare his love for the one witch that could be his undoing.

The story begins with an unsolved murder. One that will change everything…

Come stalk the streets of The Demon Isle… you’ll go up against witches, vampires, werewolves, demons, guardians, shapeshifters, ghosts, ghasts, mermaids, faeries and a host of other devious supernatural creatures waiting to wreak havoc on The Demon Isle. Where fans of the paranormal come to vacation and immerse themselves in fantasy. Where magic comes to life, mysteries abound, and you might just find yourself laughing, crying, and most definitely, falling in love.

In Volume One:

Melinda Howard is the Demon Isle’s weird girl. The one that’s been holed up in the Howard Mansion for the last four years. Why? No one knows the truth except her family… a long line of witches charged with protecting the Demon Isle, along with their mentor, the four-hundred year old Vampire, William Wakefield.

Another reason Melinda doesn’t mind her self-inflicted imprisonment. She gets to spend her days with the charming vampire, who also happens to be her best friend. Only now, she’s spending her night’s with him too. He just doesn’t know it…

Any other girl would enjoy the nightly thrill of her vampire crush invading her dreams. But not Melinda as her dreams have a tendency to come true. Although typically, they don’t include the handsome vampire she’s crushing on, but rather horrifying visions of people about to die.

But she cannot stay under self-inflicted house arrest forever. And if her brothers or William get their choice in the matter, Melinda will be out of the house partying with her friends, giving her affections to a human, not a vampire, and digging into her role as a witch.

A role her eldest brother Charlie lives for and a role her second brother Michael would rather live without. Nevertheless, when duty calls, usually from the local sheriff needing help with some tourist who’s gotten themselves into trouble, life screeches to a stop, and duty takes over.

Such is the case when the sheriff needs help with an unsolved murder investigation; one she fears has a supernatural cause. To assist her in the case, she calls upon the skills of The Howard Witches.

However, what they learn might be more than any of them can deal with, or accept. Worse yet, they fear what this discovery will do to Melinda, as it returns them all to the core of her self-imprisonment.

Back to the lives, she could not save…

In a moment of restlessness, Tate Grayson sold his multimillion-dollar company and spun his love of sports into a radio talk show. Life, and love, is too short to take seriously—a fact he enjoys rubbing in uptight radio host Noelle Butler’s face.

After the death of her parents, a tragedy she blamed on herself, Noelle vowed to live a controlled, focused life. Now a psychologist, she channels her need for connection into her radio show. But when the arrogant sportscaster next door tells listeners men shouldn’t get married, she’s all too happy to yank the silver spoon out of his overprivileged mouth.

Their heated on-air arguments are a hit, but when the station director forces them to do a joint show for two weeks, Tate and Noelle object. They can’t stand each other, despite the attraction sizzling beneath every interaction. But if they can’t pull the struggling radio station back from the brink, they’ll lose their jobs.

The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic series: The Ending Series.

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family…they’re all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them–with the rest of the world–but I didn’t. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I’d ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O’Connor, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We’ve all had to start over. I’ve been stripped of my home, my dreams…all that is me. I’m someone else now–broken and changed. Other survivors’ memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won’t let them consume me. I can’t. My name is Zoe Cartwright, and I survived The Ending.

We’ve been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing–we’ll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we’re strong…we’re survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.
