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

Louisiana Lament is the THIRD book in the Talba Wallis mystery series by Edgar-winning author Julie Smith.

Nobody knew who she really was … but her parties were to die for!

They’d be Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito if this were a movie. In Louisiana Lament, they’re P.I.s Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino—Talba’s young, African-American, computer-brilliant, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and a noted poet by night; Eddie’s pushing seventy, white, hopelessly tech-challenged, and pretty much burned out. Somehow, they make it work—with Talba’s tech-and-street smarts, and Eddie’s old-school hard-earned savvy, they even complement each other.

One stormy day Talba gets an emergency call from Janessa, the sister she barely knows, and arrives to find a body floating in a swimming pool—the mortal husk of Allyson Brown, known in New Orleans literary circles as the Girl Gatsby. Like Gatsby, Allyson was one of those mysterious rich people who move to town, give amazing parties, and seem made of moonbeams.

Investigating, Talba finds the reality behind the Gatsby glamour. Allyson was a con artist who neglected her children, ignored her bills, and lied like a rug. But she wasn’t the only bad actor on the local literary scene. Fellow poet Rashad leads Talba a merry chase, leaving a trail of clues in the form of poetry, while novelists engage in fisticuffs, unseemly preening, and unforgivable arrogance.

Before it’s all over, Talba finds out just how seamy, petty, and downright murderous her fellow literati can be.

2014 North American Book Awards Winner for Best Historical Fiction

On a humid day in June 1806, on the edge of Ohio’s Great Black Swamp, seventeen-year-old Susanna Quiner watches from behind a maple tree as a band of Potawatomi Indians kidnaps her four older sisters from their cabin. With both her parents dead and all the other settlers out in their fields, Susanna makes the rash decision to pursue them herself. What follows is a young woman’s quest to find her sisters, and the parallel story of her sisters’ new lives.

One sister is left for dead and two others are traded to a band of Wyandots for the price of a horse. Susanna spends the next five months searching for them, unaware that the man who loves her, Seth Spendlove, is also in pursuit. Part Potawatomi himself, Seth unwittingly sets off on his own quest to reclaim his heritage. He allies himself with a Potawatomi named Koman, and together they canoe through the Great Black Swamp and into enemy territory looking for Susanna.

Surviving snake bite, near-starvation, and captivity, Susanna transforms herself from the perennial younger sister to a capable young woman determined to find her family. Thieving Forest is a riveting novel that demonstrates the true wildness of the wilderness, and the rugged perseverance of those who find themselves there.

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

Ashley Hawthorne thinks of herself as the Cuckoo Girl. No matter where she is it feels like she doesn’t quite belong.

Everything changes when her eccentric aunt, Elspeth Grimm, leaves her the key to a safety deposit box in a bank that was destroyed during the Blitz. That box contains the first part of her true inheritance: an umbrella, a battered old notebook, a pair of aviator’s goggles and a locket. Each of these gifts is a unique part of who she really is.

Elspeth is a Grimm, a descendent of the brothers who purged this world of monsters by trapping them within the Concord. She is the Oracle. A keeper of all the knowledge we have amassed about the creatures of the Fae and other worlds. And someone intent on destroying the Concord has murdered her!

When Ashley looks through the goggles that night she sees curious creatures on the roof of the house across the street watching her. To the naked eye they look like crows but they are not. It is the first glimpse of the other place—the place where she will finally belong.

The journal is crammed full of things, but there’s no actual writing in it. Ash decides she’s going to use the book as a journal, and begins the first entry: My name is Ashley Hawthorne. The ink fades so she writes it again. My name is Ashley Hawthorne. Again the ink fades. She tries again and again until the ink scratches out an entirely different first line: That is not who you are!

DAKOTA DANE IS ABOUT TO TELL A LIE SHE’LL WISH SHE HADN’T. Because her lie is dangerous, sexy, and just showed up on campus, angry as hell and looking for her…

Ugly duckling Dakota Dane has a new boyfriend. He’s male-model gorgeous, built to perfection, wealthy, and smart. He is also a lie. As in, 100% fabricated. Does it matter that Dakota has a perfectly good reason for making him up? Not really. Not when Dakota’s made-up boyfriend shows up in the flesh.

So is she crazy? All signs point to maybe. But the walking, talking enigma with the deadly vibe isn’t about to give her any answers or let her out of his sight. And with college just around the corner, Dakota fears her dreams of a bright future have just collided with a dark rabbit hole…

Fate.

Such a simple word, isn’t it? But there’s nothing simple about it. Not for me, anyway. Not when it comes to this man. I have no idea who the hell he is, where he came from, or what he wants, but his dangerous vibe tells me I should run away and never look back.

But I can’t.

Because as much as he scares the hell out of me, his sinfully dark gaze and what it does to me is ten times more powerful.

And I know I want something I shouldn’t. I should want my sanity. I should want college and parties and this dream I’ve waited for my whole life. I should want to keep that promise I made myself back in high school to make something of my life.

But now I’m looking at him, his powerful body, his predatory gaze, his sinfully shaped lips, and I know I’ll never be able to walk away. So I simply keep lying to myself about there being a reason for all this. I simply tell myself it must be fate.

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

The THIRD book in Edgar-winner Julie Smith’s Rebecca Schwartz series.

So what’s a nice Jewish girl doing at an Easter sunrise service?

Lawyer Rebecca Schwartz would pick the one with the body nailed to the landmark cross! Coincidence? Not so much. She’s there because her boy friend’s covering the service for the San Francisco Chronicle. The body’s there because someone’s making a statement he doesn’t want the press to miss.

Next: mass shellfish poisoning at Pier 39. A very different kind of serial killer is operating here—one who seems to have a grudge against the whole city.

And this is a very different kind of serial killer tale—a funny one. (If your don’t count the murders, or course.) Rebecca’s warm and witty, never takes herself too seriously, and on one occasion offers closing testimony with green hair. A highly embarrassing moment, but the bright chartreuse is all in the service of making her case.

No way does she believe her client would nail somebody—especially to a cross. And the things she has to do to prove it are hilarious and often unorthodox, yet always professional. Sometimes hyper-professional–the average lawyer simply can’t be bothered spraying herself with Thunderbird to fit in with her witnesses!

A wild ride through Baghdad by the Bay…and a great courtroom drama.

Category: Espionage / Christian Historical Fiction

 

 

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

Introducing the Virtues and Valor series part 1 of 7 serialized stories that tell the tale of a daring rescue and escape. Each part is told from the perspective of a different heroine, and each heroine is inspired by a true WWII heroine.

The Third Reich Seeks to Extract the Information She Alone Knows

MARIE GILBERT and her elder brother flee from Vichy France after the Gestapo arrest her father for suspicion of aiding Jewish children to escape the oncoming fascist front. Once in London, Marie is recruited into an experimental all female cohort dubbed the Virtues, a collection of seven extraordinary women with highly specialized skills.

Known only by her code name, TEMPERANCE, she is trained to operate a wireless radio and returns to her beloved France. With a new identity, Marie clandestinely communicates vital intelligence directly back to Headquarters but unwillingly attracts the attention and apparent adoration of a handsome but ruthless Nazi officer, Oberleutnant LEOPOLD SCHÄFER.

As the H-hour to execute their daring mission draws ever closer, Marie plays a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the unrelenting and merciless young Lieutenant Schäfer and the Nazi soldiers under his command.

TEMPERANCE’S TRIAL is part one of seven serialized novellas entitled the Virtues and Valor series.

Seven valorous women — different nationalities, ethnicities, and social backgrounds — come together as a team called the Virtues.

In 1941 Great Britain a special war department assembles an experimental and exclusively female cohort of combat operatives. Four willing spies, a wireless radio operator, an ingenious code breaker, and a fearless pilot are each hand-picked, recruited, and trained to initiate a daring mission in Occupied France. As plans are laid to engineer the largest prison break of Allied POWs in history, the Nazis capture the Virtues’ radio operator. It will take the cohesive teamwork of the rest of the women to save her life before Berlin breaks her and brings the force of the Third Reich to bear.

Some find love, some find vengeance, and some discover the kind of strength that lives in the human heart when all they can do is rely on each other and their shared belief. Courage, faith, and valor intersect but, in the end, one pays the ultimate price.

Introducing the Virtues and Valor series by Hallee Bridgeman. Seven serialized novellas, each inspired by real people and actual events, reveal the incredible story of amazing heroines facing the ultimate test of bravery.

A mutilated body has been discovered; a body not meant to be found, but now that it has, Pandora’s box is open and secrets never to be learned have been revealed.

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.

Enter FBI Agent Chloe Mather, a hard-charging ex-Marine who has no sympathy for the kind of maggot who could commit such a violent atrocity. A veteran of the war in Afghanistan, she was one of the first woman Marines to be deployed into an active combat area. She struggles with PTSD and the consequences of a fatherless childhood, yet this is a woman who accepts no pity and operates according to a moral code that is second to none. She’ll stop at nothing to find the psychopath responsible for this unspeakable crime. In Secrets of the Kill, Mather and this code will face the ultimate test.

What begins as a challenging homicide becomes more, much more, and Mather is pulled into an investigation that involves the mob, Israeli intelligence, and a radical terrorist faction.

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.

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

Are second chances worth the risk?

Is a childhood crush something that can ever be fully realized?

James Hardy has everything he has ever wanted in life. Almost. After years spent in the military, he has opened his own security business and employed both of his younger brothers in a world he not only embraces, but enjoys. He likes the adventure. He likes the excitement. He certainly isn’t looking for anything more — until she walks through his door and changes everything.

Mandy Avery has harbored a crush on James Hardy for as long as she can remember — and her memory stretches far. She goes to the Hardy brothers out of necessity, but as soon as she sees James she realizes that old feelings aren’t so easily shoved to the side.

James wants to keep her safe. No, he needs to keep her safe — even though he isn’t exactly sure why. Someone is trying to hurt her, and that’s not something he can tolerate. She’s grown into the type of woman he’s drawn to, though, despite his own rule that dating clients is forbidden.

Mandy wants to find out who is threatening her, but being around James is more than she can bear. Something in her very being is propelling her into his arms — even though she knows her heart is at risk with every kiss.

James eventually gives in — and immediately regrets his rash actions.
Unfortunately for him, it’s too late. He’s not willing to give her up — and he’s more than ready to die for her if that’s what it takes to keep her safe.

She’s unsure of their future, but Mandy can’t fight his pull. She’s lost — even before he’s ready for her to find him.

When things come to head, will James be able to save the only woman he’s ever really cared about? And will Mandy have enough faith to believe that what he’s offering is real?

When two strangers have nothing left but their dreams, they must forge a relationship in Nantahala, North Carolina, a small town known as Land of the Noonday Sun.

Cassandra is the beautiful, yet analytical daughter of a wealthy attorney. Destined to follow in her father’s footsteps, her life of privilege suddenly shatters, and she finds herself with no home, career, or money. A glimmer of hope arrives in a letter from the grave, promising a happier existence. Cassandra stands to inherit over half a million dollars if she can live in the sleepy little town of Nantahala for six months. Falling in love, however, was not part of the deal, and without warning, she finds herself fighting for two lives.

A man with a traumatic past is able to turn his life around and is happy with his chosen career as a whitewater guide. Everything changes, though, when fate hurls a woman into his path. His carefree life is in turmoil, and his former weaknesses threaten to overtake him. Will he be strong enough when tragedy strikes and is once again in danger of losing everything he loves?

Category: Literary Fiction

 

 

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

The FIRST of two books featuring troubled, fearlessly funny Eleanor Rushing, each a cockeyed (yet charming) work of literary humor by Kindle bestselling author Patty Friedmann.

***WARNING*** To open these pages is not to enter Disneyland! Before you purchase THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD, please be aware that the journey you’re about to take may remind you a bit of Alice’s in THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. Know that, while loved by many, this is an extremely controversial work of dark comedy. One reader said: “Not what I was expecting…the theme & tone of the story was dark/disturbed.” Heed this man’s words! This reviewer was also right: “Very interesting with a twist. Though it’s not for everyone, it sure grasps the attention for the right audience.” Yes, a twist! If you need bluebirds and honeymoons, seek entertainment elsewhere. Remember Alice’s words in that other twisted work of genius: “Everything is topsy-turvy here!”

Oh, and one other thing: Your money back if it’s too disturbing for you. Direct your request (as well as anything you need to get off your chest) to Friedmann’s publisher at julieorleans@cox.net. We’ll also give you a free book of your choice. But whether it’s your cup of tea or not, THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD remains to many discerning readers:

A tour de force whose heroine falls somewhere between the Southern elegance of Walker Percy and the zany dark comedy of THE CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES. Here’s the set-up:

Surrounded by the splendor and excess of old money in New Orleans, Eleanor Rushing is a wry and witty young woman who first locks eyes with the love of her life at a City Council meeting. What starts as an innocuous infatuation with Dr. Maxim Walters, a Methodist minister who just so happens to be married, quickly turns into obsessive passion: she orchestrates an automobile accident outside his house, stuffs envelopes at his church, follows him on a business venture, sets up camp in the tools shed in his backyard…

Eleanor’s voice is both acutely perceptive and macabrely unhinged. She considers herself blessed with the ability to “remember everything,” except that her recollections and impressions seem to be at odds with everyone around her. By the time her “relationship” with Dr. Walters begins to spin frantically out of control, we’ve become her willing and faithful admirers. She’s so smart and funny—although a thoroughgoing fruitcake–that we can’t help but love her. Don’t we all have a friend like that?

Magnificently showcases Friedmann’s touted powers of psychological acuity and laugh-out-loud dark humor.

Who will like it: Fans of contemporary literary humor, especially in Southern fiction; humor and satire in general, and in particular THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, CATCH-22, RUNNING WITH SCISSORS; masters of dark, offbeat humorous fiction like Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Christopher Moore—and of course the New Orleans hometown favorite, John Kennedy Toole.

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

The SECOND book in the Eleanor Rushing series.

LOVE (AND COSMETIC SURGERY) IN A HURRICANE

It’s been seven years, and Eleanor Rushing is still waiting for Maxim Walters, the love of her life, to leave his wife and move into her rambling mansion on St. Charles Avenue. But when she meets Dr. Richard Kimball—tall, dark, handsome, and a plastic surgeon—her life takes on a whole new direction. Smitten, she decides to go under his knife to alter her looks, and her life. But the summer of 2005 has other plans in store and Hurricane Katrina interrupts Eleanor’s transformation.

As the water rises, self-absorbed Eleanor, thinking only skin deep, floats on the surface of the disaster. She and her longtime housekeeper Naomi wade through the flooded streets of New Orleans, and wind up in Houston along with Dr. Kimball, who gives Eleanor more plastic surgery—with questionable results. Finally home in New Orleans, she finds Katrina has put a different face on things there too.

Because this is Patty Friedmann writing, there are a lot of laughs in delusions, mental illness, and outright ruination: Not so much because anyone finds it funny, as because Freidmann, who herself had to be rescued twice during Katrina and who in turn rescued cat named Nookie, can put a humorous spin on anything. Case in point: Who names a cat Nookie?

WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES, THE UNITED STATES OF TARA, Tennessee Williams, with his vast understanding of the (slightly insane) female psyche, and Ellen Gilchrist.

*Although this is a sequel, it may be read as a stand alone novel.*

The sequel to “Vegas to Varanasi” catches up with Anna and Kiran a couple of years after the event that brought the once “ugly duckling” high school acquaintances together. But will their romance continue to flourish in the face of a whole new set of insecurities brought on by middle age?

First, there’s Kiran, who has an unexpected health scare. While his doctors assure no permanent damage has been done, there seems to have been some damage to his personality, as the normally respectful and reserved Kiran begins behaving erratically and overtly. Anna wants to hope that this is temporary, sparked by the visit of Kiran’s womanizing, free-spirited cousin, Seth. But is this just the midlife Kiran surfacing?

Anna has midlife issues of her own. Now forty-eight, she’s navigating the onset of perimenopause and all the delights that come with it, from facial hair to mood swings to body temperature issues. On top of that, her two-year-old granddaughter is starting to show signs of a behavior disorder, bringing with it a whole other level of stress and worry.

Will Anna and Kiran finally find their happily ever after? Or end up stuck in a midlife mess in this romantic comedy of accepting change, and “the change.”

As she probes the victim’s tangled relationships, Skip finds a Southern family to rival any in Tennessee Williams, including Ham’s live-in lover, feisty and swiftly rising star Ti-Belle Thiebaud; his father George, enmeshed with family members in a bitter disagreement over the family’s lucrative Po’ Boy chain; and Patty, his distraught stepmother.

In this tale of southern kinships gone awry, she’s assisted by her long-distance love, Steve Steinman, and her gay landlord, Jimmy Dee. Meanwhile, Melody’s dangerous yet exhilarating journey tugs at the heart and raises the pulse rate.

As the last descendant of a long line of witches, Lauren is the victim of a four hundred year old curse. Her life depends on her surviving a challenge set down by three damned souls, a challenge that will take her to hell and back. Literally. And Satan doesn’t do tea and scones!

The 2012 Paralympic Games are still six years away but already the sixty-five year old Terry Ravenscroft is putting together a team for the Throwing the Zimmer (Walking) Frame competition – should such an event be included. And when he has time to fit it in, of course.

Stairlift to Heaven, the journal of an old age pensioner, is an irreverent, hilarious look at one man’s life after retirement. Although written by an old age pensioner, non-coffin dodgers should not be put off by this. Everyone will be old someday, and there are valuable lessons in coping with old age to be learned here. Stairlift to Heaven ill advise you on how to cope with the multitude of maladies that accompany advancing years (including the aforementioned prostate gland problem and the countless bladder examinations it brings with it); learn how to cope with increasing forgetfulness; how to become adept at dealing with junk mail; how not to go about capturing a Christmas goose; how to cope with increasing forgetfulness….sorry, I forgot I already mentioned that: discover why you might be well advised to avoid swimming lessons; why you might like to give faith healers the widest of a wide berths; and how to deal with the neighbours from hell. But most of all learn how you can have lots of FUN whilst you’re doing it.

Late Fall – 2010

Reuters – Estimates say that nearly three thousand people nationwide, and fifteen thousand people worldwide have died of the H1N1 virus or Swine flu and nearly eighty thousand cases have been confirmed in hospitals and clinics across the United States and the world, the World Heath Organization reported. The influenza pandemic of 2010, while not nearly as prolific as the one that raged in 1918 still has citizens around the world in a near state of panic.

New York Post (Headlines October 31st) – Beware! Children Carry Germs! – Halloween Canceled!

New York Times – (Headlines November 3rd) – Swine flu claims latest victim – Vice President surrounded by family and friends at the end.

Boston Globe – (Headlines November 28th) – Swine Flu Vaccinations Coming!

Boston Herald – (Headlines December 6th) – Shots in Short Supply – Lines Long!

National Enquirer – (Headlines December 7th) – The Dead Walk!

There would be no more headlines.

It started in a lab at the CDC (Center for Disease Control), virologists were so relieved to finally have an effective vaccination against the virulent swine flu. Pressure to come up with something had come from the highest office in the land. In an attempt at speed the virologists had made two mistakes, first they used a live virus and second they didn’t properly test for side effects. Within days hundreds of thousands of vaccinations shipped across the US and the world. People lined up for the shots, like they were waiting in line for concert tickets. Fights broke out in drugstores as fearful throngs tried their best to get one of the limited shots. Within days the CDC knew something was wrong. Between 4 and 7 hours of receiving the shot roughly 95% succumbed to the active H1N1 virus in the vaccination. More unfortunate than the death of the infected was the added side effect of reanimation, it would be a decade before scientists were able to ascertain how that happened. The panic that followed couldn’t be measured. Loved ones did what loved ones always do, they tried to comfort, their kids or their spouses or their siblings, but what came back was not human not even remotely. Those people that survived their first encounter with these monstrosities usually did not come through unscathed, if bitten they had fewer than 6 hours of humanity left, the clock was ticking. During the first few hysteria ridden days of The Coming as it has become known, many thought the virus was airborne, luckily that was not the case or nobody would have survived. It was a dark time in human history. One from which we may never be able to pull ourselves out of the ashes from.

THE BOMBS FALL (book 1)

Zachary Christian is Delta Tower resident 8652. He has been stuck inside his tower since the bombs destroyed the world he knew, causing near total extinction. The reason for the war is still a mystery, but ever since that day the world stands still, trapped by the nuclear winter and the Guardians who patrol the exits. Zachary should feel lucky to be alive, but he is haunted by past mistakes which he never got a chance to put right. The only way out is the New Omega Lottery. The prize is a place in Omega, a giant glass tower in the center of their barren world where the new government, The Conservators, rule. Nobody from Delta has ever won. But when Zachary meets Emily he knows she is not from Delta. Convinced there must be another way out, he vows that he will find it. But he doesn’t realise that The Conservators have already found him, and they have their own agenda.

CALL OF OMEGA (book 2)

With the roads destroyed and the bridges near collapse, Zack cannot believe what he has learned about The Barrens. He has a job to do, and so he must try to put things right.

But there are those in the shadows who want him to fail, and when Zack learns of a mysterious group who The Conservators refer to as Drifters, he must decide if he is courageous enough to withstand their test.

Will he be brave enough to follow his heart, or will he fall under the spell of The Republic of New Omega?

EVERYBODY IS SOMEBODY (book 3)

Life in Omega Tower is not what Zack expected, especially now he understands the relationship between the Conservators and the Drifters. He had his chance to make a choice, and now Zack feels a long way from home. But with the help of his new friend Serena he takes his first Renunciation Pledge and vows to become a good citizen of the Republic.

But tensions are rising and rebellions are forming in the Republic of New Omega. Desperate to protect Leonard, Serena promises Zack that she will get a message to him. But when she comes to him begging for help he is faced with another dilemma. He turns to Emily, swearing to do whatever it takes to help Serena. But there are others who have invested in Zack, and they have other plans.

MAN IN THE MIDDLE (book 4)

With new alliances forming in the Republic of New Omega, Zack is forced to question what he has learned so far. Who can he really trust? But when he learns of a plan to try to save those trapped by the regime he must put his concerns aside. With Emily stuck inside Omega Tower under the threat of denunciation, he is willing to risk everything to save her. Even his life.

But a mysterious transmission changes everything. Whose voice is it? Could it possibly be real? The walls are closing in on President Grayson, and control is getting harder to maintain. But if the regime should fall, who and what are waiting to take its place?

RISE OF A HERO (book five)

Europe is at war, and with ChemWeap attacks and the transmissions from the north fast approaching the borders of New Omega, President Grayson is forced to take a drastic decision. But when Emily learns of her father’s plans she only has one question on her mind; where is Zack?

President Grayson thinks he has her on a tight enough lead, especially since the shock result of the Denunciation Ceremony. But he has underestimated her strength and belief in one of the most powerful human emotions. Is it Zack that Emily loves, or is it simply the freedom of choice?

ODDS, ODDNESS, ODDITIES–WHERE ELSE BUT NEW ORLEANS?

Darkly comic writer Patty Friedmann once again has spun what could be painful tragedy into a thought-provoking tale of family loss and personal redemption.

George and Anna Duffy have a peaceable enough marriage until a swimming pool accident claims the life of one of their six-year-old twin boys. The voice of the survivor, Gregor, is the purest, most innocent since those of Salinger’s youngest characters. Adultery and gambling are odds-risking distractions for Gregor’s parents. So what are the odds their story will come to a good end? Maybe not so hot, but, since it’s Friedmmann, a good ending’s a very good bet. Said The New York Times, “The odds are very good indeed.”

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

THE HRU-ARGH ARE COMING; AND THEY’RE NOT VERY NICE!

Once he was a hero to millions; now he’s just a thief.

When Dan Robinson steals the space ship and travels to Tau Ceti E to pass it on to his boss, everything seems to be going smoothly.

Then the Hru-argh attack begins, and suddenly smooth is hardly the right word.

Dan ends up on the surface of the hot heavy planet, many kilometers from any human settlement, without the food, water or oxygen to reach safety. And he has to put up with Helen, even though he’s sure that she is only using him, and there’s something about a knife, and diamonds, that he really doesn’t want to know about.

Together, they find evidence of alien life, and set off in search of what maybe their only hope for survival, and man’s first contact with an alien intelligence, unless you count a devastating attack from space by the Hru-argh as first contact.

Meanwhile, many light years from Tau Ceti E, an enormous, dragon-like creature named Heldon is doing to her best to save the Galaxy from attack from Outside, and she really doesn’t want another extended war involving the belligerent and malodorous Hru-argh, so she sends Jashna to deal with their attack on Tau Ceti E. With his usual light touch, Jashna destroys the whole of the Hru-argh force, but he is not in time to save the Human settlements.

Anyone who knows the Hru-argh will hardly be surprised that their reaction to the destruction of their ships is to bring together the largest force of fighting ships in the history of the Galaxy, determined to annihilate the few remaining survivors on Tau Ceti E and then seek out and conquer the home system of the Humans.

Jashna has been sent off to deal with the threat from Outside the Galaxy, so it is left to a diminutive blue hominid going by the name of Stave to prevent a long term, extended and bloody war. He’s strange, and more than little creepy, but he has the motivation to get the job done; no matter what the cost to the parties involved.

In a Science Fiction thriller, told with more than a hint of humor, we find out what happens to Jashna in his intergalactic quest, how Stave achieves his ends, and how Dan finds something not only to live for, but to die for.

How do you like your Sci-Fi epic?

Packed with thrills and treachery? Boiling over with action and intrigue? Effervescing with humor and drama? Bursting with more aliens than you can shake a stick at?

Well, this might be just the one for you.

These are human-interest stories, with a smattering of medical terms, where appropriate. It’s about what happened in the hospital and outside the hospital during a turbulent period in history. I learned about life and death in hospitals, which has tempered my understanding of the world ever since.

Sometimes life brings you to a split second when you suddenly understand everything is about to change forever.

But now Stan knew he didn’t want to be the shallow bad boy Marilyn had described. He wanted to be the man Carrie Moon had loved.

Loving him was all that had kept her alive. The emptiness of her marriage had made the ache of lost love burrow deeper into her heart and soul.

Carrie stood transfixed between worlds: life, but emotional death if she left alone as he wanted, or death in all forms if she stayed, and the fires reached them.

On a cool October evening in 1994, attorney Karen Moon enters an enchanting little jazz club, in San Diego and unexpectedly falls hopelessly in love with the star attraction, trumpeter Stan Benedict. Although Stan is a world class flirt, who has every woman in the audience longing to go home with him, Karen hears a deeper truth in his music. Behind the performer’s confident, shallow mask is a vulnerable, lonely man longing to be loved.

Karen risks her chance of partnership at Warrick, Thompson by secretly crossing ethical boundaries to save the club from destruction by her client, Waterfront Development. She and Stan begin a tumultuous affair that culminates in an unplanned pregnancy and a hasty marriage. But their relationship is increasingly threatened by the demands of Karen’s job as a highly paid securities lawyer and by the rising crescendo of Stan’s frequent infidelities. Through mounting heartbreak, Karen struggles to hold on to Stan until they are swept apart by a tide of personal and professional loss.

Thirteen years later, longing for forgiveness, Stan reappears in Karen’s life. Now a superior court judge and married to Warrick, Thompson partner Howard Morgan, Karen is faced with Howard’s threats to destroy her if she leaves their marriage.

Ride Your Heart ‘Til It Breaks is an unforgettable, intricately woven tale of passion, loss, self-discovery, and redemption.

Book Part of Kindle Unlimited? No

Category: Religious Fiction

 

 

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

Nearly everyone, including myself, hope that the Rapture of the Church occurs before the start of the Tribulation, similar to the storyline that was characterized in the ‘Left Behind’ series. This is a recent concept that was only made popular by John Darby during the latter part of the 19th century. For the nineteen centuries prior to that time, most religious leaders held to a different view of when Jesus would return for His saints.

What if the Resurrection and Rapture did not occur at the beginning of the Great Tribulation? Would Christians lose their faith and follow the wooing of the Antichrist? Or would they return to the Bible to see if the Rapture might still occur at another time? These are some of the questions that went through the minds of the revival crusaders, as they watched the news about the signing of a peace treaty between Israel and the Mediterranean Brotherhood of Muslim nations.

Major shock waves reverberated throughout the Christian Church when no one was raptured and everyone was left behind, as Hans Auntay Khrysto negotiated a peace treaty between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations. Faith becomes a central issue with some people growing stronger, and others falling away to follow the luring of the Antichrist. Those Christians who chose to endure were able to function within society by simply continuing to take the Great Commission into the world, and moving the local church underground during the growing persecution of the tribulation period. However, when the temple is desecrated during the middle of the Tribulation, people are forced to accept or reject the mark of the beast. Christians must flee and seek a place of refuge during the Great Tribulation or face certain execution.

There’s an arsonist on the loose in rural Wilton, Indiana — and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep from being found out. Even murder.

Mack to ease the lingering pain of her husband’s death. First, though, she has to help her dad sell his home of forty-plus years. It just might be the hardest job she’s ever tackled. He’s a hoarder; she’s a neat freak.

The night she returns to Wilton, Sam plows into a mangy mutt on a rain-slicked country road. Bump, the dog she rescues, has a history that drags Sam and her family into a web of danger, making her father a prime suspect.

Feuds and secrets run deep in Humboldt County. Sam can’t leave until the arsonist is uncovered. Not that she’d want to anymore, since veterinarian Clint Chastain has stolen her heart.

In Memories and Matchsticks, N. Gemini Sasson combines comedy and romance as accidental female sleuth Sam McNamee rediscovers love in a sleepy Midwestern town.
