Romance

The Unlikely DefendersThe Unlikely Defenders
Scott Haworth
From the author of the popular Dark Moonlighting series:

What do a womanizer, terrorist, disgraced naval officer and convicted sex offender have in common? They are not typically thought of as the good guys. The Unlikely Defenders follows a large cast of characters as they struggle against both an alien invasion and their personal demons.

Through their stories a greater tale is told about an attack on Earth by a species known as the Kessiams. The insects swarm over the entire planet and affect the lives of every human being. Heroes are not enough to defeat the enemy. If humanity is to survive it will need the help of society's outcasts as well.

"A fabulously steamy novella. Time Thief is filled with blood-pumping adrenaline and passion." - Kate, Goodreads review

Bay North wants revenge, no, she craves revenge. Hunted for her psychic ability to steal time and forced to watch her family die, all she wants is to make the crime lord who's taken everything from her pay. But now he's set the ultimate hunter on her trail and Bay will need all her skills just to survive the gray-eyed, hard-bodied man out to kill her.

Ex-Navy SEAL Sean Archer has nothing left but a thirst for vengeance. After his team is killed in Afghanistan by a time thief, he came home a broken man. Now he hunts any of the monsters he can find, ready to rid the world of the dangerous mutation.

But when he finally tracks Bay to Denver, he doesn't see a monster or a mutation, he sees a tough, beautiful survivor who ignites a desire he can't deny. During a shootout, hunter and hunted find themselves thrust into a reluctant alliance that shatters all their defenses. Can Sean convince a woman honed in revenge that they can have more than vengeance, blood and killing?

Note to readers: This fast-paced novella contains a lot of action and adventure (think gunfights, car chases and a little breaking and entering), cool superpowers (stopping time and mind control) and a steamy romance (lots and lots of sexy steam between a muscled former SEAL and a gutsy time thief). It's a little bit paranormal romance, a touch science fiction romance with a side of romantic suspense. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

Includes preview of Book 2 of The Anomaly Series, Mind Raider.

SapienceSapience
Bret Wellman
In a dystopic future, where the government exerts complete control of the population, some children have become guinea pigs for extreme science. The president is breeding super soldiers to keep order through fear, but some of the soldiers think otherwise.
After escaping the clutches of a government testing facility, William Fay and his friends hide out in Newberry, a small and quiet town in northern Michigan. They take refuge in an abandoned mansion where they search for others of their kind. Upon discovering these others, William finds himself becoming attracted to one, Brianna Frost. However, the others want nothing more than to be rid of William and his friends, and Brianna would just as soon see them killed. Now he must win her trust while avoiding detection by the government.

Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Sapience captures the struggle between survival and trying to live a full life. This is a love story with fire power.

C'est la Vie (Raja Williams Mystery Thriller Series Book 2)C'est la Vie (Raja Williams Mystery Thriller Series Book 2)
Jack Thompson
Sometimes justice needs a hand.

C'est La Vie is a rollicking detective mystery thriller featuring Raja Williams and his partner Vinny Moore. Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja Williams is a wealthy Oxford-educated PI of mixed Caribbean descent who possesses a strong empathic power and a sixth sense for evil that gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. Vinny is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture.

When Raja gets a call from a frantic English professor whose wife has disappeared, he and Vinny head to Paris, France on another adventurous case.

The search for the professor's wife leads Raja and Vinny deep into the French underworld, including the club scene riddled with designer drugs, and a modern day white slave trade. Will they find the missing woman before she falls victim to the elusive international criminal known only as the Scorpion?

The writing style is lean and fast paced, with a hint of hard-boiled and plenty of humorous banter between the two protagonists, a la Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man. A colorful cast of characters, great dialogue and a suspenseful, twisting plot make C'est La Vie an entertaining tale that can be read as a stand-alone novel or as the sequel to The Color of Greed.

Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky.

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

Now she’s abandoned him for a glamorous American film star, leaving him with a one-eyed cat and a dirty flat he can’t afford. And there’s no respite at work: Daniel’s only client, 80’s rocker Brian Fey, is losing his court case against his old bandmates. The partners are concerned with his performance, not helping his chances for promotion in a cut-and-thrust contest between him, the office sycophant and his best friend.

DRY TORTUGASDRY TORTUGAS
AFN CLARKE
From best selling author AFN Clarke this powerful novel traces an emotional journey of self-discovery between a heart broken daughter and her estranged father. “Unforgettable”, “dramatic” and “uplifting”, it’s “an absolutely beautiful story that will stay with you long after the last word is read!”

When Nikki Kimble’s mother dies, she is left with a deep sense of loss and an aching desire to find her father Jake, who disappeared from her life when she was only three. She leaves Rhode Island in search of him, hoping for answers to a lifetime of questions. But when she finds him aboard a battered yacht in the Florida Keys, their worlds collide and sparks fly, threatening to destroy the fragile bond that hangs like a thread between them. As their lives start to unravel they find themselves in the path of a deadly hurricane, perilously adrift in a raging sea on Jake’s now damaged and leaking yacht, lost in the Gulf of Mexico. Fighting for survival they face off, and emotions run high as they are forced to discover the truth about each other that neither is ready to accept.

Dedicated by the author to his daughters, this deeply moving novel explores the fragility of human emotions and the strength of the human spirit to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles that life places in our way.

AFN Clarke is best selling author of “Contact” (memoir) and 7 novels that have captured the imagination of readers worldwide.

EIGHT Engaging Reads for Free!

by Alana on February 12, 2013

Bountiful Creek: a legendary love storyBountiful Creek: a legendary love story
Steven B. Weissman
In the spring of 1861, just prior to the onset of the Civil War, eighteen-year-old Martha Somerville finds her life rapidly changing along with the world around her. Determined to find a way to build a life with her love, Wilby, Martha focuses her energies on acquiring enough money to buy a plot of land to turn into a small farm. Her obsession takes her far from quiet Bountiful Creek, Virginia, deep into Union territory in Ohio. When war breaks out, she immediately sets her course for home before Wilby leaves to join the Confederate Army; but a wealthy suitor, a gravely ill companion, and a thief challenge her efforts to reach him in time. Yet even if she can successfully overcome her obstacles, her life dangerously parallels an ill-fated legend that threatens to keep her and the man she loves apart forever.

Worse Than Being AloneWorse Than Being Alone
Patricia Clark
Worse Than Being Alone is a riveting tale involving multiple cons, a vicious murder, romance, betrayal, and escape as it vividly explores just how far all of us are prepared to go to avoid being alone.

Kitty and Roni are building their fledgling investigative agency by following workers' comp cheats. Every PI's dream of catching real criminals seems to be coming true when they begin to suspect one of their targets is engaged in more nefarious activities than just a bogus comp claim. Their cat and mouse game gets twisted when they realize they are the ones being stalked.

A personal and potentially lethal inquiry emerges after Roni's father marries a woman with a checkered past, and they fear he has found his Worse Than Being Alone. When their investigation points to a shady past involving a trail of life insurance payouts and dead husbands, they wonder if Dad has married a Black Widow or an extremely unlucky woman.

As that case boils over, along comes the most talented con artist of them all. After his angry employer hires them to check him out, Kitty and Roni slowly come to realize he has the makings of a master criminal. They uncover numerous identities along with multiple workers' comp claims. Then here are his almost daily trips to the same bank wearing different disguises.

Surprises abound as Kitty and Roni break up a sex slave ring, thwart a bank robbery, nab a shoplifter, and document a Black Widow's treachery. A sudden death leaves them stunned as they second-guess their activities, forcing them to confront a murderer.

AN UNQUIET AMERICANAN UNQUIET AMERICAN
AFN CLARKE
Bestselling author AFN Clarke wrote AN UNQUIET AMERICAN in 2007-2008. The explosive revelations released by the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in December 2014 concerning CIA Black Sites and extreme torture during the Bush Administration, makes this powerful, provocative and eerily prophetic novel an even more incredible “must read” of our times.

Rufus Reed, ex-British Special Forces, is drugged, kidnapped, falsely accused of terrorism and “disappeared” to a secret CIA “Black Site” in Northern Europe. He’s to be broken “by any means possible”. But nothing is quite what it seems, and Reed is no ordinary prisoner. He was trained in counterterrorism and psychological warfare, and as he engages with his captors they develop a growing respect for his intelligence, level headedness and humanity. As doubts about his guilt grow, so does the horrifying possibility that they’re all just pawns in a larger, more insidious game being played out by right wing extremists at the highest levels of the US government, conspiring to ensure “their man” wins the Presidency of the United States. A game that makes not just Reed, but all of them expendable!

But could “their own” really betray them? As they grapple with the unthinkable, the moves and countermoves of competing forces explode onto the world stage. From a small Irish village to the Port of Al-Aqabah, the White House to the Israeli Knesset, the CIA Black Site to top echelons of the Vatican, events escalate at an unnerving pace until a mind-bending twist propels the action to a dramatic and unexpected conclusion.

Drawing on the author’s own experiences in the military and as the son of a British MI6 operative living in different countries, cultures and political systems around the world, this “controversial”, “politically provocative”, “can't put the book down” literary thriller tackles highly controversial issues and disturbing decisions in history from 1948 to the present, the far reaching consequences of which, we are still dealing with today.

About The Author
AFN Clarke, is the bestselling author of Contact as well as The Orange Moon Affair and The Jonas Trust Deception (Thomas Gunn thriller series); Dry Tortugas; Dreams from the Death Age and Armageddon (The Book of Baker Satire Series) and Collisions.
