1929 Jonathan’s Cross – Book One (The 1929 Series)

By M.L. Gardner / Genre: Sagas / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (386 reviews)

1929 Jonathan's Cross - Book One (The 1929 Series)

What would you do if you lost everything?

That’s exactly what I asked myself the day I watched the stock market plunge 777 points on September 29th 2008. On that same day I began a manual on how to survive the coming Depression.
Much to my surprise, it wanted to be a fiction novel. 1929 Jonathan’s Cross and a large cast of characters were born.
Jonathan Garrett, Aryl Sullivan, Caleb Jenkins and their wives were faced with that very question.
The answers and the resulting storyline surprised and intrigued me.

They lose their business and homes, automobiles and possessions. They find themselves suddenly in need of a home and rent rundown tenements from Jonathan’s business rival, who delights in tormenting them.

Lucky to find work at all, they accept low paying manual labor positions. Their wives are forced to learn domestic skills and rely heavily on each other for support.

The glue that holds the group together is Maura, Jonathan’s former house maid. Full of hard love and sound advice, she does her best to see them through a journey full of twists and turns, disappointments and delights.

Maliciously Obedient (Obedient Series #1)

One playboy CEO. One curvy, determined administrative assistant. One hidden camera.

What could go wrong?

Lydia Charles is determined to show her boss that getting caught reading Fifty Shades of Grey in the parking lot can help the company bottom line. Preparing for the biggest work project of her life, a romance book marketing campaign, she never expected that an actual romance would interfere with the business of romance. Tough and cynical, her last office relationship exploded in her face. No man was worth it.

Until Matt Jones, a boss she didn’t know she had – a boss who took the Director of Social Media job she was gunning for – swept her out of a promotion and off her feet. Lydia didn’t want to respect him, much less like him – but her body had a mind of its own, turning traitor in chance encounters. After a steamy elevator episode that left her missing her panties – and most of her resolve – she decided that maybe it was time to let him get inside her – in more ways than one.

When he closed off to her unexpectedly, hurt feelings unleash a torrent of tension, with his order to follow his command triggering malicious obedience – following the exact letter of the law – in her. Interest from Matt’s eccentric millionaire friend Jeremy left her hot and bothered, with threesome dreams that made her want to obey – but in the bedroom. Not the boardroom.

What Lydia didn’t know was that “Matt” was really Michael Bournham, the CEO of the company, part of an undercover reality television stunt. Keeping his hands off Lydia’s luscious curves was becoming an exercise in restraint, but what was harder? Keeping his heart from her. For Michael, Lydia’s malicious obedience ignited a night of unbridled passion in the office that made him forget everything – including the rolling cameras – until it was too late.

Sometimes the best way to break the rules is to follow them…

Since Tomorrow (The SINCE TOMORROW Trilogy)

By Morgan Nyberg / Genre: Dystopian, Science Fiction / Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars (29 reviews)

Since Tomorrow (The SINCE TOMORROW Trilogy)

An old man rides a workhorse through the night, across mudslides, past stores abandoned for decades, past the rotted corpses of automobiles invisible under mounds of blackberry. Rain courses from his rabbit skin poncho. He carries a sword and a spear. He knows where to find the murderer. He will face him alone.

SINCE TOMORROW is a novel of a world in the remaking. The old man, Frost, remembers the “good times”. Those who live on his “farm” among collapsed warehouses and the foundations of vanished houses struggle to maintain human values. But when others in this makeshift world are driven only by greed and the need for power, all values must ultimately be replaced by the simple instinct for survival.

In this full length novel Morgan Nyberg takes the reader to the West Coast of Canada, where the city of Vancouver has been transformed by climate change, pandemic, economic collapse and earthquake into “Town”, a squalid, lawless place inhabited the desperate, the diseased and the dying. Taking advantage of this state of affairs is the formidable Langley, who grows poppies to produce “skag”, a crude form of opium. Langley has amassed enough power to control a small private army. Now he is determined to acquire Frost’s farm for himself. Recklessly opposing Langley is Frost’s fearless but impulsive granddaughter, Noor.

SINCE TOMORROW demonstrates that there is room in the post-apocalyptic genre for exceptional writing. Morgan Nyberg tells nothing – he shows everything. In clear, sensuous prose free of commentary or explanation – prose as addictive as Langley’s skag – he leads the reader toward that climactic night with Frost on his horse, and farther, to the threshold of a new, perhaps happier, era.
