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

Naomi is a skilled mediator who has an uncanny knack for getting everyone to agree. And she is newly engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Brock. Life is pretty sweet. But on the winter solstice of 2012, she learns that a Native American goddess named White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman has drafted her. She has enhanced Naomi’s powers of persuasion so that she may mediate a peace agreement in heaven between all the pagan gods and goddesses and the Christian God.

The goddess has also given Naomi a team: Shannon, her Counselor and best friend; Joseph, a Ute skinwalker and her Guardian; and an Investigator who often causes more trouble than he is worth. Together, they embark on a journey that will change all their lives – one that will end in a time out of time, on a windswept plain, and with all life on Earth in the balance.

About the Author:

 

lynne cantwell

 

Lynne Cantwell has been writing fiction since the second grade, when the kid who sat in front of her showed her a book he had written, and she thought, “I could do that.” The result was “Susie and the Talking Doll,” a picture book illustrated by the author about a girl who owned a doll that not only could talk, but could carry on conversations. The book had dialogue but no paragraph breaks.

Today, after a twenty-year career in broadcast journalism and a master’s degree in fiction writing from Johns Hopkins University (or perhaps despite the master’s degree), Lynne is still writing fantasy. She is also a contributing author at Indies Unlimited. She lives near Washington, DC.

As his hands reach for her forehead, gliding across it with intimacy and purpose, suddenly, she remembers who he is, and who he has been. Yet, still, Bronwen wonders why she was chosen, and fears what the mysterious man’s presence in her life will mean. Before he turns to leave, she asks why he has come and why it has been her he sought.

His reply silences her.

“Rexaria,” he whispers, low and gruff, yet louder than the tumbling sea and the screaming gulls flying overhead.

Somehow, Bronwen understands.

Kingmaker.

Soon, we learn that there is much that she keeps hidden. Her fire-streaked hair marks her as a Northerner, far from her homeland, yet she recalls nothing. Until she is visited by Conri, the High Lord of the Wolf Tribe, who lets her remember. But what will those memories be? Follow Bronwen as she explores what it means to be god-touched.

Against his wife’s warnings, Simon agrees to help Cardinal Genovi expose the conspiracy behind a modern-day cult. But Simon should have listened to Grace; she’s more than smart and alluring … she is usually right!

Twisted Linen is a fast-paced conspiracy thriller offering a chilling view of a possible future

Also a fine choice for the Judeo-Christian reader who’s looking for clean writing that’s free of foul language.

It’s a suspense mystery that you won’t want to put down…

For decades Simon LaCroix faithfully served as Special Agent in Charge of Vatican Security, but now he and his wife Grace, want a safer life apart from Rome. Their bug-out plans are interrupted when a top raking Cardinal summons Simon to the Papal Office and discloses a diabolical threat against the civilized world. A modern-day cult called the Golden Dawn plans to use the latest in genetic science to usher in a Final World Order, and Cardinal Genovi demands Simon’s help this one last time. But there are deep fractures in the Church, unexpected betrayals, and dark secrets concealed in Grace’s past that hold dire consequences.

From the majestic city of Rome to the picturesque city of San Sebastian, Spain, Simon and Grace race against time to expose the conspiracy behind the cult’s insidious agenda. The situation turns deadly when a kidnapping ensnares Simon and Grace in a net of deception, deceit and divided loyalty. And where it all leads . .
a dark nightmare into the underbelly of the occult with demonic consequences not revealed until the very end.

An Israeli woman living in New York has been murdered. She has been raped and butchered; an outrage that ignites a fuse that burns all the way back to Tel Aviv.

They say that blood is thicker than water but is it thicker than the bonds of patriotism? Mather will ponder this question and many others as she fights to bring an innocent woman’s murderer to justice, and prevent a geopolitical atrocity from taking place on American shores.

. . . Annie’s closest friend in Fire Mountain, Caroline MacLaren, is determined to see Annie come out of her shell after almost two years of mourning. A chance meeting with Heath turns into an offer to be a part of the MacLaren Foundation Board and an opportunity for a life outside her home sanctuary which has also become her prison. The platonic friendship that builds between Annie and Heath points to a future where each may rely on the other without the bonds a romance would entail.

However, without consciously seeking it, each yearns for more . . .

. . . The MacLaren Development Company is booming with Heath at the helm. His meetings at a partner company with the young, beautiful marketing director, who makes no secret of her desire for him, are a temptation. But is she the type of woman he truly wants?

. . . Annie’s acceptance of the deep, yet passionless, friendship with Heath sustains her, lulling her to believe it is all she needs. At least until Heath drops a bombshell, forcing Annie to realize that what she took for friendship is actually a deep, lasting love. One she doesn’t want to lose.

Each must decide to settle, or fight for it all.

Second Summer is the first book in the MacLarens of Fire Mountain Contemporary novella series. Heartwarming stories of difficult choices, loyalty, and lasting romance. Watch for Hard Landing in the Spring of 2014.

Reychel is a slave girl surrounded by magic, lies and manipulation. Her best friend disappears in the middle of the night leaving Reychel to face her fifteenth birthday, the day her master burns his brand into the back of her bald head, alone.

Oubliette (released June 2011):

Reychel thought she was finally free. She was wrong.

Everyone saw her gift of prophecy as a blessing, but her gift is uncontrollable. No one alive can teach her to manipulate her unique gift and the answers she needs lie buried within a madman’s journals.

She’s thrust in the midst of a brewing war and the only uniting factor for her people is their belief in the Prophet. Will Reychel learn to control her gift or will she be forced to deliver a false prophecy that could lead her people into a violent war?

Severed (released November 2011):

Reychel knows her gift of prophecy will lead to madness and now she is at her most vulnerable. The enemy army will attempt to sever her from everything she’s ever known: her homeland, her friends, Mark, and her gift. Even at her weakest, she refuses to give up on her desire to end the war between the Malborn and the Serenians. Reychel would do anything, even come back from the dead, to conquer the enemy and reunite with Mark.

Category: Fantasy

 

 

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.

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?

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

House of Blues is the FIFTH book in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon Series by Julie Smith.

DISTURBING FAMILY SECRETS, A CURIOUS KIDNAPPING, AND COLD-BLOODED MURDER HAUNT THIS GRITTY AND MYSTERIOUS SOUTHERN DRAMA.

Sugar Hebert arrives home from a ten-minute errand to find her husband shot to death and the rest of her family missing—including her daughter Reed, heir apparent to the Hebert restaurant dynasty, and Reed’s eleven-month-old daughter.

Detective Skip Langdon’s hunt for a murderer and the missing Hebert heirs embraces worlds within worlds—splendid but dangerous Garden District digs, Faubourg Marigny drug dens, broken-down projects, lowdown bars, an elegant hangout for crooked politicos, and a dealer’s crib masquerading as a sultan’s palace, harem and all. A palm reader warns Langdon of danger, but it comes when she’s least prepared for it. Before long, the mob’s involved (maybe there’s a reason Hebert’s Restaurant won the lucrative casino contract), and so are family secrets so ugly they’d make Tennessee Williams wince. Everyone has them—the Heberts, the mob princess, even the crooked cop.

And Langdon finds she should have listened to the damned palm reader.

What happens when your perfectly programmed wife starts craving more? One unsuspecting man is about to find out.

Tim McNamee is a young IT professional from Southwest England who lives in an area known to the central European powers in Brussels as Sector 9G. He made the decision years ago to buy a cyborg bride named Mina and is finally ready to tell the story of why he opted for an electronic lover. Marriage is tough enough for average couples, but the complexities of being wed to an artificially created person presents unique challenges.

Mina is, by all accounts, content with her husband. She owes her existence to Tim, but over time yearns for something different and special. More love, more life, more fun, more friends, more laughter, more thoughts, more things, more “more”. Her restlessness causes her to search for answers to the nature of her being and the pursuit leads to an underground religious group known as the Association of God’s Children. However, it also results in Mina exiting her habitation zone without permission from CyberG, the company that built her.

The couple find themselves entrenched in a serious predicament. Mina is caught between Tim, the only love of her short life, and a spiritual search that threatens to reveal more about the nature of her being than she could possibly imagine. Tim thinks of her as an independent person, but his sensibilities are tested when she claims to have supernatural powers. Will Mina’s yearning for something more become their undoing? The authorities are closing in and time is running out for a happily ever after.
