Clarity

4.2 stars on 182 reviews.

Romantic Suspense.

Her world has always been dark, but he might be able to change everything…

Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods, where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more; the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen’s demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her. Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen’s grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

Please note: This is the first book of a three-part series. Cliffhanger alert! 

Awaken

(Fated Saga Fantasy Series Book 1)

4.3 stars on 297 reviews.

Summer fun is coming! And other than turning thirteen, twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, are looking forward to a typical summer… well, typical for them. Which means their uncle (and guardian) will pull into the Cobbscott Campground and park his travel trailer for the entire summer.

Normally, they’d never spend more than a couple weeks in any one place, their uncle preferring to move around. But only until summer when they’d be Cobbscott bound. Why did he do this every summer? Why did he prefer to move around? The twins have never thought to ask.

Their only concern being that their friend Sebastien would be in Cobbscott as well… the one person who also happens to know their secret- that they can read each other’s minds.

Arrival at the campground goes as expected and within hours, Meghan and Colin are already making plans to meet up with Sebastien. But before they do, the campground gets some unexpected visitors.

Visitors with reserved campsites. Sites that have been reserved, but unused, for years. The twins always wondered who reserved and never used these campsites and now that they have seen the owners, the twins can’t help but get an ominous feeling.

These visitors dress strange and act strange, taking hikes into the woods wearing wing tip shoes and overcoats, disappearing into things clearly too small to fit so many people, and they never stop peering into the sky as if expecting to see something terrible.

And when unexplainable and frightening events follow their arrival, the twins start to realize that this summer, will be their least typical of all…

Across Great Divides

4.5 stars on 26 reviews.

Historical Fiction.

On sale for only $0.99!

Across Great Divides is a timeless story of the upheavals of war, the power of family, and the resiliency of human spirit. When Hitler came to power in 1933, one Jewish family refused to be destroyed and defied the Nazis only to come up against another struggle—confronting apartheid in South Africa.

Sixteen-year-old Eva and her twin sister, Inge, witness their lives in Berlin change before their eyes. Their best friend, Trudy, betrays them when she becomes a member of the Hitler Youth. A valuable family heirloom, a beautiful emerald and diamond pendant necklace, is confiscated by the Nazis as they continue to harass Jewish families and businesses.

Their younger brother, Max, a member of the underground resistance, sees even greater danger ahead. Their father, Oskar, a diamond merchant with a thriving business, refuses to leave his beloved Germany and believes Hitler will eventually fail. Their mother, Helene, the elegant matriarch of the family, holds her family together.

The family is conflicted whether they should leave home. But after the devastation of Kristallnacht in 1938, they finally flee Germany with the help of the underground resistance after hiding many diamonds. They seek refuge in Antwerp, but war follows them as Belgium is occupied by the Germans.

A young German man, a nun, a countess conspiring against the Nazis, and a winegrower secretly hiding Jewish children, help them to escape Europe. They hike over the Pyrenees Mountains while eluding German patrols and Spanish informers. Then, they spend agonizing days on a ship bound for Rio de Janeiro that is targeted by a German U-boat. As Rio’s diamond business is corrupt, they decide to go to South Africa, another diamond market. Click here to read more on Amazon.

Unfortunately, there was a distance growing between the two of them, and the passion between them wasn’t flaring as red-hot as it used to burn. Was it possible that Simon wasn’t as crazy in love with her as he used to be, or did their problems go much deeper than that?

Simon Hudson loves his wife and his infant daughter so much it hurts. And he was getting tired of holding back his emotions from his worn-out, exhausted wife who had seen their baby girl through her first year and a half of life without complaint.

Will their differences and emotional distance tear the two of them apart? Or will a precious gift from Santa help them heal their misunderstandings and have the merriest Christmas they’ve ever had?

She came to the company to find a Killer:

Kate Meyers finds herself grief stricken after the news of her brother’s death at a construction site owned by the wealthy Trent Farrington. After speculation of faulty equipment and wrongdoing, the police eventually clear his company. Kate takes it upon herself to find whoever was the hand behind her brother’s demise and lands a job with Farrington Construction to do her own investigation. When she meets Trent, Kate instantly dislikes and distrusts the strikingly handsome millionaire and thinks he’s involved. She can’t wait to get evidence against him. Her greatest pleasure would be to see him pay for what he’s done—behind bars.

Trent Farrington finds himself intrigued by the company’s newest employee, but previous bad experiences with women have taught him to be cautious. However, he is drawn to the alluring beauty, but he’s puzzled that she seems to hate him for some unknown reason. He’s used to women throwing themselves at him, and her attitude shocks him and is refreshing all at the same time.

While Kate searches for the evidence to implicate Trent, she has to work closely with him. However, the information she uncovers isn’t exactly adding up against him. She dislikes how her traitorous body reacts whenever he is near, although he appears to enjoy her reaction immensely. She vows to leave the company as soon as she collects the evidence, but she soon learns nothing is as it seemed… Whoever is involved might be an outright killer!

Kade looks up at his executioner with no fear or hate, watching . . .waiting. At six months old, he could hardly do much more as his grandfather agonizes over the task of taking the life of his only grandson. 

Born with the rare ability to control the Divine, Kade has the potential to become one of the most powerful Chosen to ever exist. Taken from his parents, at the age of ten, by his grandfather, a Master Chosen, Kade is taught to harness the power of the Divine for good. After a decade of training, Kade learns the harsh reality of the dangerous world he is about to be thrust into, as his Master is brutally murdered right before his eyes.

Fashionably Dead

4.5 stars on 1,054 reviews.

Paranormal Romance.

Vampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist. 

At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead? 

Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator. 

To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One. 

Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride.

Sacred Light Spirit Eagle

3.8 stars on 37 reviews.

Near-death Biography.

Cristael Bengtson is a quiet woman, a dreamer. A mother, a grandmother, a teacher, a caretaker for her dying mother, she has lived a life of secrets and silences. For Cristael is a visionary and a near-death experiencer.

A lifelong visionary  -  Cristael was seventeen when she saw a vision of the great eye of God, looking down at her. It was an experience of total love. After this experience she continued to have visions. Then when she was in her twenties her husband threatened to have her committed to the State Mental Hospital in Las Vegas, New Mexico because of her visions.

Cristael realized that no one around her could understand her seeing angels and having conversations with Divine intelligence. Silenced, she went to college and graduated, then got her divorce and began her career as a music teacher and a classroom teacher. She withdrew from life to teach and to raise her children alone.

As the years went on, her children left home and her parents died, and Cristael was left totally alone. She struggled with breakdowns and with years of bleak depression, winding up being totally dependent on her older son. And still her visions kept coming to her.

Near-Death Experience  - Fifty years after her first visionary experience, Cristael had her Near-Death Experience. And after years of struggle and loneliness, she knew she could no longer allow herself to be silenced or censored. But how could she stand up to the risk of rejection by the people she cared about? And could she accept the fact that there were those who would ridicule her and seek to discredit her and her life of visions?

Are Cristael’s visions and her near-death experience delusions? Or are they glimpses of glorious realms where the human soul really does live for all of eternity?

“Cathedral of Dreams” won the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Finalist Award.

In Newcity, everyone is content. Bad feelings are not allowed, because your monitoring chip will alert the police to bring you in for treatment. Getting better is mandatory. Unchecked emotions made the world outside Newcity dangerous, unruly, and violent. At least that’s the official story in Newcity.

Keith knows something is wrong. Strange visions lead him to become one of the few who escapes Newcity. He finds freedom and companionship outside, but pressure building to revolt against the city’s insidious regime of social control. Leadership is thrust upon him, with only his visions for guidance, only a small band of friends for support–and the fates of both Newcity and the outside world at stake.

Cathedral of Dreams is a compelling tale of a dystopian future and personal heroism.

A Real Piece of Work

4.6 stars on 178 reviews.

The Dakota Stevens Mysteries.

An Amazon Kindle Countdown Deal!

Regular price $4.99. On sale for $0.99!

A Real Piece of Work, the 1st novel in the Dakota Stevens Mystery Series, delves into a world of forged and stolen art, secret identities and murder.

At the close of a case in Key West, PI Dakota Stevens and his associate Svetlana Krüsh return to New York, where the city is in the grips of its worst blizzard since 1888. When an art dealer stumbles in from the storm and hires them to find a stolen painting, they think it’s just another case, but in no time they’re neck-deep in a world of unstable artists, seductive gallery owners, mysterious collectors, deadly henchmen and a stunning femme fatale.

In a thrill-ride of a mystery that leads from Manhattan to the Catskills to Washington, D.C., what begins as the simple recovery of a painting soon reveals an international art scam and a chilling secret hidden for decades.

Dakota Stevens is a former FBI agent with experience in the field and the lab, a modern PI who combines the wit and grit of Marlowe and Spenser with the sleuthing skills of Sherlock Holmes. However, Dakota’s “Watson” is anything but. A Ukrainian-American chess champion with runway legs, predator eyes, and fluency in seven languages, Svetlana Krüsh is much more than a sexy sidekick, bringing worldly sophistication and a razor-sharp mind to their cases.

A fast-paced and intelligent mystery in the noir tradition, A Real Piece of Work is a pristinely well-written page-turner for readers who like a great story told with literary style.

Author Interview #316: Olympia Heights: The Pantheon by Amy Leigh Strickland

September 17, 2014
By

Our interview is with Amy Leigh Strickland author of Olympia Heights: The Pantheon (4.4 stars, 31 reviews, $0.00 – FREE). A brief book description before the interview: They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but for Zach Jacobs, that just isn’t true. It’s hard enough being seventeen– juggling school, football, friends, and teenage romance– but Zach’s about to find out just how complicated it can get when he begins to suspect that maybe he was the lightning. Teenage woes hardly seem significant when you’ve got lightning shooting from your fingertips and a couple of murderous Titans trying to settle an ancient score.

Author Interview with Amy Leigh Strickland

1.   Give me the elevator pitch: what is your book about?

Olympia Heights: The Pantheon is the first book in the Olympia Heights series. It’s about a group of teenagers in Miami, Florida who find out that they are the Greek gods reborn into mortal bodies. They have to juggle their school work, their social lives, and attacks from vengeful titans all while figuring out who they are and why they’re here.

2.  What makes this series special to Young Adult readers?

When teens reach out to me to tell me what they liked the most about Olympia Heights, it tends to be their connections to the characters. It’s a large cast, and every character was inspired by the traits of their Theoi identity, making them a very diverse group of personalities. There are lots of different characters to relate to. Different people latch on to different characters.

On the surface this is a series about teenagers shooting lightning, talking to animals, seeing ghosts, lifting cars, etc. Beneath that are the universal YA themes: discovery, responsibility, and identity.

We are highlighting two exciting New Book Releases for September 2014 from our New Book Releases List (click to see all the new releases). If you are looking for something new to read this is a great place to start.

Deadsville

Urban Fantasy/Mystery.

Tavie has just died, but that isn’t the end of her existence. Instead, she ends up “living” in Deadsville, where the dead play games, look for entertainment, and wonder when they will move on.

Reapers walk the streets occasionally, taking “deadies” who are ready to move on.

All of that’s normal until two deadies are murdered in a way that the residents of Deadsville have never seen before. They need someone to figure it out before more bad stuff happens. They need Tavie, that is, Detective Tavie, as she was known in the living world. Tavie isn’t exactly happy about the promotion to Deadsville Sheriff. She sees gods of the dead, people who died in bizarre ways, and is presented with a mystery that requires unusual creativity to solve it. And that’s all before the dust settles from her arrival in the land of the dead.

Nothing in Deadsville is ever boring. Read more on Amazon.

Predator

Young Adult.

“Predator is a fast-paced, creepy page-turner! Bashman had me at the opening sentence and she’s still got me. I want more!”  —Nancy Holder, New York Times Bestselling Author, The Rules

“Every twist and fascinating revelation fell into place smoothly, with an ending that will leave readers wanting more. With this kind of originality on the page, it is exciting to speculate at the surprises Bashman will unveil next.”  —Suspense Magazine

The hunt is on! Sixteen-year-old Bree Sunderland must inject herself with an untested version of her father’s gene therapy to become a werewolf in order to stop a corrupt group of mercenaries from creating a team of unstoppable lycanthrope soldiers.

When Bree went with her scientist father to Ireland, she thought it would be a vacation to study bog bodies. She never expected to fall in love with a mysterious young Irishman and certainly never expected to become the kind of monster her father said only existed in nightmares.

Dr. Sunderland discovers that lycanthropy was not a supernatural curse but rather a genetic mutation. When they return home, her dad continues his research, but the military wants to turn that research into a bio weapons program and rogue soldiers want to steal the research to turn themselves into unstoppable killing machines. Bree’s boyfriend Liam surprises her with a visit to the United States, but there are darker surprises in store for both of them. Read more on Amazon.

Breakaway Hearts

(The Kelly Brothers, Book 2)

4.3 stars on 33 reviews.

Contemporary Romance. Sports Romance.

Regular price $3.99. On sale for $0.99!

A new contemporary romance series that’s a sexy, modern twist on Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Can he melt her frozen heart?

Hockey star Ben Kelly has retreated to his mountain cabin in the ski town of Cascade, BC, to recuperate from a season-ending knee injury and contemplate his future in the NHL. He never expects to run into the one woman who got away. Nine years may have passed, but nothing has dulled the explosive chemistry between them. Now he wants more than just one night.

Hailey Eriksson had Olympic-sized dreams until an accidental pregnancy from a one-night stand halted her ambitions. Her life was shattered when her son died. Nothing will keep her from fulfilling her promise to him to make the Olympic team, especially not the charming Ben Kelly. Unfortunately, he’s out to sweep her off her feet this time, and she finds him harder and harder to resist with each passionate kiss. But when he learns about the child he never knew, will their rekindled romance be on thin ice?

Warning: Contains two hockey stars with ice in their blood, a hero who is willing to battle his fears for a second chance, a heroine with a mean slap shot who lays it on the line in a bet, a small town full of busybodies, and a meatloaf that should be served with a four alarm warning. This story may also bring tears to your eyes (and not just because of Cindy’s cooking).
