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

Is it possible to be in love with a man you’ve never met?

Card Shop owner Amanda Jensen admits Jonathan, the illustrator she’s worked with for two years via email and texts, touches her in ways no man has ever touched her. But how does he feel about her?

Having no idea, she’s been dating Bradley. He’s rich and successful, well able to offer her security and a lifestyle that assures she’ll never want for anything, and he wants to marry her. But he does not touch her. Could he ever? Could love between them grow?

Already confused and lacking confidence in her own judgment, a customer’s intriguing nephew, Max, enters her world, encourages her to follow her dreams, and tests her heart, but he has secrets he won’t share for reasons he won’t state. Is it possible to be in love with two men simultaneously?

Making decisions to keep the shop she’s wanted all her life afloat, to settle her confusion about what she really wants in a man, Amanda has more questions than answers. She’s torn and riddled with doubt. This is one time, she can’t afford to make a mistake.

Three men. Three very different relationships. Jonathan, who touches her soul and might or might not love her. Bradley, who doesn’t touch her soul but offers her security and a life free from worries. Or Max, a man who attracts her, supports her, but carries secrets he won’t share.

Amanda must decide. Which man will be perfect for her? Her soul mate? The man with whom she can build her best, most fulfilling life? Which man will inspire her to say, “He’s the one. He’s My Imperfect Valentine?”

When Edy Phelps falls hard for her best friend, she knows nothing can come from it.

Except he can’t. In a world erupting with possibilities for the boy with a body of steel and dreams of the NFL, everything seems promised while nothing at all is; when he’s denied the girl he wants most.

Two hearts. Two families devoted through generations of friendship. Could Edy and Hassan really risk all that? And yet … how could they not?

Diego de la Torre is part of that pack now, but brotherhood comes at a price when blood is spilled. Meanwhile, Kayda Garnett returns home with a college degree to find her family torn apart by the same tragedy. Only half-Yavapai, she is considered an outsider, but finding a peaceful alternative to the violence may finally win her the respect of the tribe.

Despite best laid plans, California bikers incite a gang war, the FBI undermines local police, and vigilantes take the fight to the streets. What starts out as a simple murder may soon run Sanctuary red with the blood of brothers.

Category: Literary Fiction

 

 

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

A dazzling adventure, filled with all the electrifying beauty and horror of the human condition.

Akin takes place in a time void of technology and full of lore passed down by generations of ancient cultures. Across an arid land lay scattered city states and villages of people separated by social and political hierarchies. Through this vast archaic world, Akin manages to illustrate vivid human experiences that are unquestionably universal, regardless of the places we live or where we come from.

The novel centers on the journey of a boy whose struggle for survival begins when his thoughts and ideas begin diverging from values he was raised to follow. As he traverses into adulthood, his eyes open to truths about his family and community that his young mind had previously been incapable of understanding. Haunting memories of events witnessed as a child drift through his mind, creating rifts and questions he is forbidden to ask.

A tale of suffering, hope, and the human condition told against the grueling scenery of an immeasurable desert terrain, Akin is a powerful story brimming with a rare humanity.

As they overcome obstacles and start to see a future together, one final snag causes Kelly to question their happy ending. Is Will actually better off without her?

Ho-hum, thinks our hero. But suddenly all three cases begin to converge in an entirely ominous way–the toxic dumping, the dock leases, and the too-good-to-be-true casino job. How is that possible? Could it be Tubby’s been set up as the fall guy in a Mob effort to expand its gambling empire?

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

Love dragons and magic?

This spellbinding Young Adult fantasy series will plunge you into a world where fantasy and reality collide.

One is Come is the first installment in a YA fantasy saga full of hidden plot twists and turns. The centuries-old prophesy of the One is being fulfilled, and the ancient dragon clans are coming out of hiding to remake the world. The king of the magic users will stop at nothing to be sure the prophecy is fulfilled the right way–with his oppressive government ruling. As they struggle for power, Haylwen (14) and her brother Cadarn (16) just happen to be caught dead center.

How can you save the world when you don’t know it needs saving?

In this first book, meet fourteen-year-old Haylwen Rightad. She doesn’t think “crazy” runs in her family, but she might be wrong. Fish seem to listen when she talks. She finds herself wearing jewelry she can’t remember putting on. And then there was the explosion at school…and her ex-principal trying to kidnap her…and her brother? Don’t even ask. All she wants is to be an ordinary teenager. Live a normal life. Go to school, make friends, and not have to move a zillion times. Oh, and getting the bullies off her back? That’d be nice, too.

What Haylwen doesn’t know is WHY all this crazy stuff is happening to her. But she’s about to find out. The bad news? Things aren’t going to be “normal” any time soon!

With a mysterious prophecy, magical secrets and more than a few dragons, ONE IS COME is the first book in the adventures of siblings Haylwen and Cadarn as they come to discover they have powers they never dreamt of — and a destiny only they can fulfill.

It’s not easy to be “normal” when nothing is at it seems, and no one is who they appear to be.

Book Part of Kindle Unlimited? No

Category: Military Fiction / Historical Fiction

 

 

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

Rolling Thunder is an historical novel about the decisive role politics played during the Vietnam war. Its characters range from men in the field to the Pentagon and the White House. Fighter pilots and Special Forces warriors try to do their best but are hampered by President Johnson, Secretary of Defense McNamara, and their staff members who despise the military. Only one aging USAF general, who fought in Korea and WWII, is on their side. His clashes with his Commander in Chief, Lyndon Johnson, are epic in proportion and startling in content.

In Rolling Thunder, the time is late 1965 and 1966 in war zone places such as Saigon, Hanoi, Bien Hoa, Da Nang, and Tahkli. While back in Washington, LBJ sits over lunch and personally picks bombing targets in an attempt to fight a limited war. In Vietnam the war knows no limits

There, as the hostilities escalate, the fates of three men intertwine: USAF Captain Court Bannister, overshadowed by a famous movie star father who fought in WWII as a B-17 gunner, driven to confront missiles, MiGs, and nerve-grinding bombing raids in order to prove his worth to his comrades — and to himself…Air Force First Lieutenant Toby Parker, fresh from the States, who hooks up with an intelligence unit for a lark, and quickly finds his innocence buried away by the lessons of war…and Special Forces Colonel Wolf Lochert, who ventures deep into the jungle to rescue a downed pilot — only to discover a face of the enemy for which he is unprepared.

Airline stewardesses come under attack when they are forced to spend the night on a fighter base in Vietnam after their airliner develops a problem.

Through their eyes, and those of many others — pilots, soldiers, lovers, enemy agents, commanders, politicians, profiteers — Rolling Thunder shows us Vietnam as few other books have, or can. Berent captures all the intensity and drama of that searing war, and more, penetrates to the heart and soul of those who fought it. Rolling Thunder rings with authenticity.

Feeling vulnerable Fiona searches the paper and an advert catches her eye which leads her to Lorne’s rescue centre. During a home check to see if the girls’ flat and a dog are suited, Lorne witnesses Linda’s horrendous injuries. She urges the girls to let her take up their case. Little does she know that more victims will come forward to accuse Gibson of being a multiple rapist.

When her daughter is involved in a life-threatening accident, it’s difficult for Lorne to keep her head in the game. But Lorne and her ex-MI6 husband, Tony, are determined to end the repulsive slave trade and bring the criminals to justice–even if it means Lorne ends up locked in a cage herself.

James had assured him that his daughter was safely away in Miami. So when he sees the woman he’d met on the beach talking to James, even hugging him, Chase regretfully moves her to the top of his suspect list.

It’s not until James invites them both to join him in his private dining room that they discover each other’s true identities. Lansing convinces Chase to become his daughter’s personal bodyguard until the situation with the threats is taken care of. Being thrown together twenty-four seven is the last thing Chase wants, considering the unexpected feelings he has for Shay. Distraction can make a man careless. But he accepts, determined to protect her and her son with his life.

For the first time since her divorce, a man stirs Shay’s passion. More importantly, he makes her son smile. The last thing she expects is to fall for her ‘bodyguard’, a man determined to keep his heart at bay, but she does just that. Can she convince Chase he really is her happily-ever-after? Or will secrets uncovered ruin any chance of a future together?

Humor…Romance…A touch of suspense…A story to warm your heart and make you laugh!

At thirty-two, newspaper reporter Molly Hacker vows to never attend another wedding until she has had her own. And that’s a problem because Molly’s younger sister, Hannah, is going to be married in one year. Armed with snark, wit, and fabulous good looks, “Picky Molly” embarks on a quest to find Mr. Right in her hometown.

Things get complicated fast. In no time at all, Molly has four “men of interest” and the memories of a lost love to send her overanalytic, befuddled mind into serious overdrive. Determined not to let her “helpful” girlfriends help her right out of another relationship, Molly tries to keep mum on the state of her love life. Her BFF male coworker, Randy, becomes her closest confidant as he stumbles over romantic issues with his new Mr. Right, Kyle. Meanwhile, Molly’s BFF gal pals aren’t too happy about being left out of the loop.

Tweaking Molly’s last nerve is the town’s most visible socialite, Naomi Hall-Benchley, who, for self-serving reasons, is hell-bent on setting up “Picky Molly Hacker” and she doesn’t care who she has to manipulate or hurt to do it. Just how far will she go?

“Molly Hacker Is Too Picky!” takes the reader on a yearlong romp through Molly’s mind and a joyride through her life. Her dating life, town secrets, a group of quirky, crazy characters, and Naomi’s machinations collide head-on at a holiday gala that will change the social landscape of Swansea forever. As the New Year rolls in, Molly gets earth-shattering news. Can she go on? Will life ever return to abnormal again?

Here is a story collection about love, death, humor, and the glue called family. In one narrative, a man wakes up one morning to find the odor of dead fish won’t go away, but no one else can smell it. In another, a couple’s visit with friends to watch the Academy Awards has the protagonist envying his friends’ lawn and lifestyle. In these and eleven other stories, Christopher Meeks balances tragedy and wit. As novelist David Scott Milton explains, “In this collection, Christopher Meeks examines the small heartbreaks of quiet despair that are so much a part of all our lives. He does it in language that is resonant, poetic, and precise…. If you like Raymond Carver, you’ll love Meeks. He may be as good–or better.”

What happens when an idealist volunteers to introduce Shakespeare to a group of unruly kids? Bedlam. Tears. And hard lessons learned. Convinced that children can relate to Shakespeare’s themes—power, revenge, love—Mel Ryane launches The Shakespeare Club at a public school. Teaching Will is a riotous cautionary tale of high hopes and goodwill crashing into the realities of classroom chaos.
Every week Mel encounters unexpected comedy and drama as she and the children struggle toward staging a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Woven through this fish-out-of-water tale is Mel’s own story of her childhood aspirations, her acting identity, and the heartbreaking end of her onstage career.
In the schoolyard, Mel finds herself embroiled in jealousy and betrayal worthy of Shakespeare’s plots. Fits of laughter alternate with wiping noses as she and the kids discover a surprising truth: they need each other if they want to face an audience and triumph. Teaching Will is an uplifting story of empowerment for dreamers and realists alike.

Category: Paranormal Romance

 

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

“My mom had always told me – when you meet “the one,” you’ll know; they’ll captivate your heart the moment you lay eyes on them. I had always wondered, though, if my mom’s words of wisdom were finite – if they applied to everyone. Maybe those who had found their one great love were the lucky few, and maybe the rest of us would have to settle for less than earth-shattering.”

Seventeen-year-old Kat Walsh is a Gifted – a human with paranormal abilities. With her mom a former Angel and her dad a dream prophet, it’s always been in her genetic make-up to be extraordinary. Unfortunately for her, the world can’t handle the strange or unusual. So when she slips up and uses her powers at her high school in Ireland, the entire student body treats her like a freak – even the ones she thought were her closest friends.

Broken, but hopeful for a fresh start, she allows her parents to enroll her in a boarding school buried deep within the forests of a small Colorado town. At Midland Pines, School for the Gifted, she feels as though she can finally be herself; she makes new friends and even has the attention of the most popular guy in school – Levi. Everything feels normal again… or does it?

Not long after her arrival, weird dreams of an alluring boy whom she’s never met surface during the night, and the eerie, shadowy trees encircling their school seem to call to her. As these disturbing, yet enticing developments intensify, other bizarre occurrences happen – students and staff turn up missing, and mystery visitors leave gifts while she sleeps. With all of these other things vying for her attention, a desperate Levi has to fight even harder to keep her interest. But with the dreams of the attractive boy slowly captivating her heart, Kat has to make a choice – will she settle for ‘great’ Levi, or will she search for her elusive dream visitor, possibly stumbling across ‘amazing?’

From the author of the Alyx Rayer Chronicles, comes a refreshingly different Young Adult series with plenty of love, suspense, and a new take on the Paranormal.

Recommended for readers 16 and up due to mature content.

There was only one rule in our neighborhood—never break an oath. But oaths are easy to take and damn hard to keep.

Now I’m staring at my best friend, lying on the floor in a pool of blood, my bullet in his gut. Where the hell did it go wrong?

About the Author:

 

giacomo giammatteo

 

I live in Texas now, but I grew up in Cleland Heights, a mixed ethnic neighborhood in Wilmington, Delaware, that sat on the fringes of the Italian, Irish and Polish neighborhoods. The main characters of Murder Takes Time grew up in Cleland Heights, and many of the scenes in the book were taken from real-life experiences.

Since this is a bio some of you might wonder what I do. I’ve had a successful 30 year career as a headhunter, recruiting top talent for some of the world’s best companies–Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Abbott Laboratories, and many high-profile start-up companies.

During that time I’ve completed more than 500 searches, which translates into evaluating, editing, and writing thousands of resumes. I have also interviewed and done reference checks on more than 1,000 candidates. I’ve learned what companies want to see on a resume–and, perhaps more importantly–what they don’t. You’ll find a lot more information in the book and on my website.

Getting back to the bio–when my kids were young I left the Northeast and settled in Texas, where my wife suggested we get a few animals. I should have known better; we now have a full-blown animal sanctuary with rescues from all over. At last count we had 45 animals–11 dogs, a horse, a three-legged cat and 5 others, and 26 pigs.

Oh, and one crazy–and very large–wild boar, who takes walks with me every day and happens to also be my best buddy.

In the evening I help my wife tend to the animals, and at night–late at night–I turn into a writer.
