Daisy Dunlop thinks “heir hunting” is a perfect career. Too bad she has to work with her husband’s best mate, Irish PI Solomon Liffey. They’ve barely spoken since he took her husband Paul’s request to keep her safe far too literally and handcuffed her to the kitchen sink.

Solomon has no interest in babysitting a new partner, especially this one. The woman’s a bleedin’ liability. She has no concept of danger and could flirt for England at the next Olympics. As if that isn’t bad enough, she has a habit of sticking her nose where it’s not wanted, including into Solomon’s very private life.

Determined to keep Daisy safely out of his way, Solomon sets her the task of finding a missing lord. Her investigations land her in the middle of his case. Bullets fly, bombs explode, and the body count rises. When Solomon goes missing, the tables are turned. Now it’s his life that is in Daisy’s hands, and she has two missing men to find before it’s too late.

Barbara Houlton is a best-selling romance author, known for her achingly sweet love stories. However, her own love-life is nothing to write home about. Raped on the eve of her high-school graduation, she was left pregnant and scarred, both emotionally and physically. She has learned to hide the physical scars, but the emotional scars that taint her soul become harder to hide each day. Sarcasm, avoidance and denial have become weapons to keep her monstrous past at bay. Barbara avoids her home town at all costs. She denies to all those who are concerned for her that there is anything wrong. And those who try to pass her protective boundaries are met with her cutting sarcasm. Her emotional scars make intimacy a frightening thing, and those who try to grasp this beautiful rose are quickly met with her thorns. Instead, she loves through her characters, embracing her romantic dreams with every book she writes, and convinces herself it is enough.

When her father falls ill, she is forced to return home to Hamilton, New Mexico, a small town that comes with big problems, the biggest of which is Steve Meston. Steve has had a crush on Barbara since high school. But he is no longer the awkward, shy boy from her youth. He is now confident, handsome and relentless in his pursuit of her, despite her best efforts to put him off. His patient and steadfast love back her into a corner, and she finds that all her weapons are useless against his sweet love. Now she must stop avoiding and confront her past, or lose the one man who was able to get past her thorns.

Skulking around in the ruins on a planet swarming with treasure hunters, slavers, and bounty hunters isn’t good for one’s health. But Ankari Markovich needs a few archaeological samples for her latest business venture, a venture that might prove lucrative enough to move her family off the impoverished planet where she grew up. Unfortunately, she has no sooner collected her samples than she’s captured by a band of brawny mercenaries. The captain might be handsome, but he’s intent on turning her over to some finance lord who has, for reasons unknown, put a bounty on her head, a ridiculously large one at that. If she can’t figure out a way to escape before she’s delivered to the lord’s home world, she could be forced into a life of indentured servitude—or worse.

Captain Viktor Mandrake doesn’t usually take on piddling bounty hunting gigs, but when his intelligence officer informs him of a criminal on a nearby planet, he decides it wouldn’t hurt to take a shuttle down to collect the woman. But Ankari Markovich is trouble from the start, nearly eluding his elite forces, then fighting and tricking his people left and right. He finds himself admiring her spirit, but according to her warrant, she’s a criminal. The safest thing is to keep her in the brig and ignore her until she can be handed off to the man who wants her.

But the situation grows more complicated when other bounty hunters show up, wanting to claim Ankari for themselves. Thanks to this woman, Viktor’s ship is in danger, his crew members are going missing, and he’s fighting enemies he never asked for in a jungle in the middle of a hurricane. He’s either going to strangle Ankari… or fall in love. Either scenario could get him killed.

Homesick by Paul Joseph

Genre: Science Fiction, Space Opera

On New Ontario, a distant planet thought uninhabited by Earth, Astronaut Scott Anderson toils for more than 20 hours a day. Malnourished and subsisting on garbage, his body accumulates broken bones, abrasions, and other injuries as he cleans mortar off of bricks, breaks metal rods, and carries heavy burdens. When he does sleep it is in a filthy, over-crowded shack with other slaves. Inexplicably, though, Scott is ecstatic. He lives only to serve his Masters, a society of monsters as grotesque as they are cruel.

Not knowing Scott’s fate but fearing the worst, Captain Sally Buds embarks on a rescue mission that risks her life and that of her pilot, Ian Merryfield. What they find on New Ontario is beyond belief. Scott can no longer speak their language or even recognize them. With the best of intentions, Sally and Ian’s rescue becomes a kidnapping as a terrified Scott fights to continue his work for the Masters.

Back aboard the Kelthy, Sally and Ian uncover a chilling reality. Something terrible has happened on New Ontario. The Masters have consumed an entire civilization and in its place established an empire of unspeakable barbarism. And now, so far away from home and help, with the Masters’ rapacious attentions drawn to Earth, Sally and Ian must defend themselves and their planet from the mind control weapon the Masters are planning to deploy.

Homesick is not space opera. It brings to hard science fiction the vivid sights and sounds that are sometimes lacking in this genre, while maintaining the plausibility and attention to detail demanded by a sophisticated science fiction audience. It also includes nail-biting suspense and great character development. It is an unforgettable tale that will raise many interesting and timely questions our world may soon face.

Not only had her parents moved her from Atlanta to the middle of nowhere, but her boyfriend broke up with her in the middle of a crowded club and her parents grounded her for a month for sneaking out and stealing the BMW. All in one night! If she were back home in Atlanta it would be no problem. She could always find ways of getting around her punishments. But this was rural Georgia. And there was nowhere to go but woods and farmland. That is, until Finn showed up at her window.

Tessa O’Connor lives in a world of privilege and excess. Her doting parents want her to make a good match with a worthy gentleman and live a respectable life. She is beautiful and intelligent and she comes with a hefty dowry. There is no reason that she shouldn’t be able to find an eligible man and settle down.

Tessa herself is the reason. The men who are attempting to court her are, in her opinion, boring and conceited. Not only that, Tessa craves excitement and adventure, of which there is little in her social circles. By chance, she comes across an advertisement for a bride brokerage company seeking eligible women of good breeding to go west and find husbands.

One man on the list catches her eye and she begins corresponding with him, eventually agreeing to go to Montana to meet him. She can’t resist the possibility of finding someone different and even if she doesn’t, the adventure itself would be worth her time. Tessa makes a successful escape and sets out to make a new life in Montana.

Dean Samuels is a Montana rancher who is in over his head. His ranch is struggling and his two children are unruly and in need of a caretaker. It’s clear to his younger brother, Marcus, that he needs help. He tells Dean about a mail order bride service and convinces him that he should utilize it to find a wife.

After his wife, Sarah, had passed away, Dean never intended to marry again. His ranch and his children became his life. However, it becomes apparent that Sadie, his daughter, and his son, Jack, need stability and love. The demands of raising his children and keeping his head above water financially have taken a toll and Dean grudgingly gives in to Marcus’ idea.

Sarah had been the love of his life and Dean doesn’t intend to let any other woman into his heart. He’s locked those kinds of emotions deep inside, not wanting to take the chance of getting hurt like that again. Because Dean has trouble expressing his feelings in writing, his younger brother Marcus agrees to help write the letters to Tessa. Dean is happy to leave that part up to him.
When Dean and Tessa meet, sparks fly between the two strong willed people. Tessa is disappointed that Dean isn’t the romantic, sophisticated man she was lead to believe he was in the letters she received. Dean is aggravated that she isn’t a meek woman who is easily managed. Never mind the fact that she has no idea of how to take care of children and keep a home.

Dean and Tessa struggle to find common ground and make their marriage work. Will they each take the risk and open their hearts to one another? Can their marriage survive and will they find love and contentment in each other? Their future happiness hangs in the balance under the Montana skies.

Author Interview - Cheri Allan Talks About Her Free Book "Luck of the Draw"


What was the inspiration for your book?
I write what I love to read. I adore quirky family dynamics, 'real' people, romantic comedies and small-town settings, because they are relatable. I wanted to write a novel about characters I might meet in real life; and, I don't know many billionaire/doctor/cowboys. :)
Introduce us briefly to the main characters.
Kate Mitchell is a recently-widowed single mom who has come to a crossroads in life. She's told to "quit or recommit" to her job and retreats to a cottage in NH to figure out her future. Jim Pearson is the sexy local carpenter who has a bad habit of saving women from their personal disasters only to be left in the lurch. Neither wants the complication of a romance!
Tell us about the setting.
Luck of the Draw is set in the fictional town of Sugar Falls, New Hampshire, which is a loose amalgamation of all the places I've known growing up here. The story takes place at the edge of Whisper Lake, a picturesque but relaxed summer retreat, and readers will quickly feel at home enough to take off their virtual shoes and dip their toes in the water...
What makes this a great read?
Luck of the Draw is, on the surface, a light, humorous novel about a woman discovering her true passion in life. But, at it's heart, it's a hopeful story about second chances both in love and in life with the message that one should never give up. Happily-ever-after is right around the corner!

Juicing: Recipes by Darrin Wiggins

Genre: Recipe Book
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

101 juicing recipes may sound like a lot but let’s be honest and acknowledge the fact you might not like some of the ones presented in this book. You should buy a few juicing recipe books in order to have enough variety of recipes that you stick to your goals. Whether that is detoxing, improving your health or losing weight you will get bored drinking the same juice day in and day out.

Some of the recipes will call for a blender also to ensure you are getting maximum variety and can add other health enhancing foods into your diet that juicers cannot process. Have you ever tried juicing a banana? Don't! Just blend it.
The main benefit of juicing is the fact you are consuming more fruits and vegetables. In a society where we live a processed life it can seem difficult to consume enough healthy food and juicing alleviates that. Add juicing to a healthy lifestyle and you will be well on your way to having optimum health and a body you love to live life in.

101 Juicing Recipes is perfect for anyone looking for new and exciting juicing recipes to add to their daily life.

Author Interview - David Haskell Talks About His Free Book "Too Much Information"


What was the inspiration for your book?
Basically the amount of government overreach you see from the TSA at airports all around the country got me to thinking about what it might be like if (when) it became even more invasive and intrusive. Thus the Thermo-Magnetic Imaging (TMI) machine was born, and the story concept along with it.
Introduce us briefly to the main characters.
Rob Folsom is a civil rights advocate who ends up representing an airport screener, Rosa Perez, who was fired for showing compassion for one of the passengers. Most of the characters are associates of the two main characters, or else employed by the mega corporation, SecureSystems, that came up with the TMI technology in the first place.
Tell us about the setting.
For the most part, the story takes place in and around the large metropolitan airport where Rosa works, as well as the SecureSystems research campus where the new technologies are developed.
What makes this a great read?
Tough question lol - I hesitate to call my own story "great", but I do hope it's an entertaining and compelling read due to the fast pace and intertwined story lines, and in particular if it gives readers a chill and makes them really think about where things are going with this invasion of privacy stuff, then I feel like I've done my job.

The Man That Time Forgot by Alan Mechem

Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

Just open any book or talk to any history professor and they’ll tell you that history is filled with nothing but glorious battles, great leaders, plagues, large fires, earthquakes, famous inventors, Egyptians and Louis Pasteur.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. History, in fact, is filled with a whole lot of nothing.

Andrew Adams knows that only too well.

He’s an ordinary man living his life in the all too abundant and mundane spaces between those great moments. Just like all ordinary men he spends much of his life wondering what the point of it all is, struggling to form meaningful relationships or find his place in society. Andrew’s life follows a daily routine much like that of many others: he wakes up, does the minimum required to get himself through the day - careful not to learn too much or create a lasting impression on anyone - and then goes back to bed.
There’s only one, ever-so-minor inconvenience that continually stands in the way of Andrew’s ignorantly blissful life

Time-travel.

Since before he can remember every time Andrew sleeps he’s randomly flung through time and space, never knowing where or when he’ll wake up. The only thing he can be certain of is that the location he arrives at won’t be anywhere exciting.

He’s a cursed man who had no idea why this happens to him, clueless to how it all started or how it can be stopped. Rarely does he find a place to fit in and, on those rare occasions that he does, he can only stay there until he loses his fight against sleep.

Andrew Adams has all but given up hope and given up on life.That is until he meets someone else like him who sets in motion a chain of events that will lead him on a journey of discovery and answers to questions that perhaps even he didn't want to know. With the help of a mysterious and tenacious woman, an old drunken priest and a seven-foot, psychopathic assassin Andrews life is about to be given a purpose. Finally he might start to view his abilities as a gift instead of a curse and perhaps learn that there’s always something to be thankful for.

Peer Pressure: Helping Your Child Best Deal with Its Power and Pull by Mark David Richardson


Read on: Kindle, PC, Mac, iPad, Tablet, Smartphone
Genre: Parenting
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

Someone once defined a teenager as a person who watches his weight by giving up candy bars before breakfast. Anyone who can hear a song by Bruno Mars played three blocks away but not his mother calling from the next room. A whiz who can operate the latest computer without a lesson but can't make a bed. A seeming expert on everything, yet never seems to study. A connoisseur of two kinds of fine music: Loud and Very Loud. And a romantic who never falls in love more than once a week.

Pre-teens and teens are that and so much more. They are our children, created by God and loved by us. They have passions, plans, personalities, and God-given gifts and abilities. Raising them is both a challenge and a blessing, and helping them to navigate the pitfalls of adolescence is a parent's most pressing task.

How do we help our pre-teens and teens handle peer pressure, the culture's sway, the desire to date, and all that seeks to influence their hearts and minds? Answering that question is the focus of Mark David's Richardson's parenting series.

In this first installment, parents will:

~ Understand the power and pull of peer pressure
~ Discover how a teen's brain development makes them more susceptible to peer pressure
~ Gain practical tools to counteract peer pressure
~ Be given action steps to make an enduring difference in their children's lives

The epic survival tale continues in this Book III of ADAM’S CHRONICLES. All over the battered world a handful of adults and their closely related children are restoring life almost totally wiped out by the massive meteor. People are caught in a tight genetic funnel. To thrive, the two groups of surviving humans must pool their genetic material and carefully plan the next generations.

Adam Boatwright leads the genetic engineering necessary to give survival diversity to both animals and humans. The highly intelligent apes are in the process of being integrated into society and are treated as hairy people.

Conflicts must be resolved.

ADAM’S NEW WORLD IS AN ACTION ADVENTURE THRILLER.
The new society begins its long growth spurt, but transportation by boat is too time consuming and too dangerous. Infrastructure building starts with salvaging planes and ships. Stored fuels are running too low for that to work, and scarce gasoline must be replaced.

All the while, life must be restored and Adam must keep secret his long life, thereby protecting the future from traffickers in immortality. Can he orchestrate it all while directing a handful of middle-aged survivors with very young children, all spread widely over the planet?

Jason Sloan is known as Harper's Crossing's resident Romeo, and he's never had to work too hard to live up to that nickname. With his easygoing charm, whiskey-colored brown eyes, and sinfully sexy half smile, women just seem to fall all over themselves when he's around.

Well...most women, anyway. Katie Lawson's the one woman who isn't putty in his hands, and she's the only one he's ever wanted in his arms.

Katie Lawson left Harper's Crossing in the middle of the night ten years ago, immediately after her high school boyfriend Nick's funeral. She left behind all memories of Nick, and she left behind her life-long best friend, Jason Sloan.

Now she's on the fast track to junior partner at one of San Francisco's top law firms. She's made a life for herself that's all about maintaining order and sticking to the rules. Rule #1 is keeping herself way too busy to think about all that she ran away from. If she can do that, after all, she can keep everything under control.

But that rule is about to be broken. She's headed back home to be the maid of honor in Nick's little sister's wedding. It's time to face the truth she's been avoiding all these years, the same one that sent her running ten years ago - that maybe she didn't lose her first love the summer after high school. Maybe her first love has been waiting for her all this time, at home in Harper's Crossing.
