Most nineteen year olds believe they are invincible. They wake up each day thinking they have all the time in the world to travel, to get an education, to fall in love.

Cole Dixon isn’t most twenty-six year olds. Still reeling from an unforeseen blast five years earlier, he is down to his last chance with nowhere to go and no inclination to get there.

Against both their wills, they set off together on a journey that will define them both for the rest of their days.

When a dark stranger, beautiful and haunting, approaches the flame-haired girl on a solitary stretch of beach, she senses that her life at the Healer’s Academy is about to change. 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.

The first book in the Pathway of the Chosen series, we meet Bronwen, a healer-in-training, who arrived at the Academy as a child with no memory of who she was or where she had come from. 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.

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.

His life’s about to get a whole lot worse…

When Venn is arrested for a murder he didn’t commit, he’s given a choice. Track down a missing professor of neurochemistry, in an operation that’s so politically sensitive even the FBI can’t be allowed to touch it. Or face life in prison.

Dr Beth Colby is having a bad day, too.

She’s used to dealing with death, in her job as a physician at one of New York City’s busiest hospitals. But two people she knows have just died mysteriously in the space of twenty-four hours. And before the day’s out, Beth herself will become the target of a shocking attack.

Events conspire violently to throw Venn and Beth together, and soon they’re locked into a desperate race against time to uncover the secret of Professor Lomax’s disappearance.

What’s the connection with the research he’s conducting into groundbreaking neuromodulatory drugs?

And why are Venn and Beth being hunted by not one but two professional assassins – as well as by the most powerful organized crime family in New York?

As the chase spreads from Manhattan to New England and back again, and the net closes relentlessly in on Venn and Beth, each of them must use their unique set of skills to the maximum.
Not just to uncover the terrible secret so many people are desperate to keep hidden.

But also simply to stay alive…

Relentless in its action, terrifying in its suspense, and riddled with twist upon shocking twist, OMEGA DOG is a heartstopping rollercoaster ride that will thrill and chill you in equal measure.

About the Author:

 

grant boshoff
While not having written for almost three decades I never lost that gnawing inside me. As a kid growing up in South Africa I wrote essays with abandon and whilst harboring almost no other artistic skills I found writing to be my one creative indulgence. But soon came rugby, then girls, and within a few short years that creative flame had been all but replaced by a passion for surfing, fast cars & motorbikes (and girls, of course).

Some years later, and a continent away, a girl came along – a very particular girl – and my prior passions became eclipsed. I don’t mind admitting that I cast aside my personal needs and devoted myself to the pursuit of making this beautiful creature happy. We started a family and built a business. Together we pursued both our individual and mutual dreams. She sculpted. I drove race cars. We lived, and loved, and laughed, and created a lifetime of memories. Yet, hidden inside, never revealed to even her, lay my long dormant ember of creativity, It’s dusky glow falling upon the odd letter or email or marketing piece.

But being the very particular girl that she is, she saw the glow, and teased it out of me, carefully breathing life back into it in the manner that only she can – and those that know her will understand.

So now twenty four years, four children, two grandchildren, business career, and racecar driving career later I return to my early love, to the creative indulgence of the written word.

Though I write partly for me, what I write is for you. And I hope that in my writing you find not only enjoyment and entertainment, but possibly also a thread of wistfulness that might fan a dormant ember in you.

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.

Death took everything from him.

Jackson Alexander was born with the voice of an angel and his only dream was to “make it”. But his devotion to his music meant he was too busy working to protect his wife. After her death, he made a promise to himself.

He’d never sing again.

Ridley Wells has a habit of picking the wrong men but she’s never ended up on the radar of a Mafia don before. Hiding out with her twin sister makes the most sense except she never thought her sister would be halfway around the world.

There’s a dark, broken spirit inside of Jackson that she knows she can heal. But the depth of her lies threatens the trust between them until Ri has to make a choice.

Trust him or break him all over again.

A breathtaking new thriller about a stunning future that is rapidly approaching. From the New York Times bestselling author of WIRED.

“Richards is a worthy successor to Michael Crichton.” –SF Book.com

When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster–bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head–he knows things are bad. But they’re about to get far worse. Because he’s being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?

As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights–or bring about its total collapse.

Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind’s Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

Leroy Watches Jr. is a shaman whose Power is a bit quirky. Sometimes it makes things worse.
Despite his flaw, he must save his soul mate from her addictions, her father, and Evil Incarnate, or she’ll be damned forever.

Trying to unite with his true love, Leroy embarks on a pilgrimage that takes him to the highest levels of European society. As he travels, his shamanic Power grows. So does the Dark Lord’s hatred of him.

He learns a lot. One thing he learns is his prospective father-in-law “has a few fleas.” Will Duane came a long way spiritually at his Grandfather’s retreat, but he’s got a long way to go. Will demands that Leroy and Cass be in love by Christmas. He’s used to getting his own way; Will is the richest man in the world.

If they aren’t in love, what then? You’ll find out. Leroy doesn’t know if he can find Cass by Christmas, much less be truly in love with the real woman. What if Cass’s addictions can’t be overcome? What if he can’t heal her soul?

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?

Understanding the life of Jorge Mario Bergoglio is essential to understanding how Pope Francis shepherds his flock – and the key is mercy.

What exactly do people find so attractive about Pope Francis? There is something about him that captivates and delights people, even people who hardly know anything about him.

Aldo Cagnoli, a layman who developed a friendship with the Pope when he was serving as a cardinal, shares the following: “The greatness of the man, in my humble opinion lies not in building walls or seeking refuge behind his wisdom and office, but rather in dealing with everyone judiciously, respectfully, and with humility, being willing to learn at any moment of life; that is what Father Bergoglio means to me.”

This book uncovers the life of the 266th Bishop of Rome, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

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

Brenda’s holiday season is looking pretty bleak. She hasn’t spoken to her half-sister, Rachel—the only family she has left—since Rachel stole her boyfriend, and Brenda hasn’t dated since.

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.

Brenda has already turned down their Thanksgiving invitation, but she doesn’t want to spend Christmas alone, yet she’s not sure she’s over her ex enough to face the two of them as a couple.

But then she collides with Alex—a handsome stranger in a coffee shop—and everything changes.

Alex has given up on family Christmases and miracles after watching his family slowly get wiped out, his brother the latest casualty.
He has settled on living life playing the field, not trusting his luck with having people he cares about stick around, but a chance encounter with a sad-looking beauty in a coffee shop arouses his curiosity.

To make up for the coffee he spilled on her, Brenda asks the handsome stranger one favor: to accompany her to her sister’s Christmas dinner. He agrees on one condition: that she go out with him in the meantime until then.
They both agree to end their arrangement after the dinner is over, despite mutual growing feelings of wanting more.

Brenda is determined to keep her heart protected, but can Alex hold on to the scared beauty for longer than the holiday season?

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

In the last winter of WWII a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join an absurdly desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan — he’ll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he’d once abandoned.

The Losing Role is based on an actual false flag operation during 1944’s Battle of the Bulge that’s been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.
