The Unexpected Bride (The Great Wedding Giveaway Series Book 4)

Wanted: nanny. Needed: wife.

Laurent Fletcher has to admit his life would be a whole heap better if there was woman in it. His kids are running wild, and his dog is acting crazy; he’s been finding it tough to juggle everything since his wife died, and run his successful custom-built furniture business.

Emma Peabody is a British nanny, looking for a new life in the New World. When she arrives at River Bend and finds two small motherless children, a miserable pet and a man who’s placed his emotions in the deep-freeze, she realizes she’s joined a broken family and it will be down to her to put it back together again.

The kids and the dog are easy—all they need are routines and love. Their father is something else. Laurent isn’t about to drop his guard and let Emma work her magic—and it doesn’t help that she finds this dark, brooding man incredibly attractive…

In Canterbury, as the virus rages out of control, one troop of Royal Marine Commandos fights a 360-degree battle for survival, while also racing to rescue the Channel Tunnel survivors from a relentless siege – all before Hellfire missile strikes and carpet bombing kill anyone left alive. Across the Atlantic, the crew of the USS John F. Kennedy risks a catastrophic reactor meltdown to get out of the path of a ten-mile-wide tide of the dead; while, onshore at the Naval Air Base, Wesley’s tiny team maintains a lonely vigil – which turns horrifyingly dangerous as the edge of the storm hits, pushing desperate civilians ahead of it. In the air above, Gunnery Sergeant Fick leads a hand-picked fire-team of spec-ops Marines halfway across North America to take and defend an airfield on a remote island – but learns to his cost that it is a place with a terrible history, and very dangerous secrets. Finally, out on Lake Michigan, Alpha team races toward extraction… but first must fight their most harrowing battle yet – this time against the living, who are both more treacherous and a hell of a lot better armed than the dead.

By Whit Gentry / Genre: Psychological, Mystery & Thrillers / Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (89 reviews)

Revenge... No Statute of Limitations (The Jake Littleton Series Book 1)

A cryptic, mind-boggling mystery awaits readers as this saga unfolds a bitter sweet expression of Revenge

The best description of the story is its believable—characters, actions, and locations. The story starts fast and quickly explodes into multiple stories as the kidnapper maintains his captives, the FBI conducts their task force investigations, and the lives of the husbands and wives are exposed. As the stories progress, action escalates and leaves the reader little time to catch a breathe. The twists are stimulating and the conclusion is unforeseen and rewarding because revenge has no statute of limitations.

The affluent estate community of Evergreen, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, is stunned to discover four women have been kidnapped. The Evergreen Police chief and the Sheriff of Boulder County willingly gave the case to the Denver FBI office. Three months passes with no ransom requests, no bodies, nor any specific suspect, the FBI team theorizes the women are no longer alive based on history of other cases.

The four women are friends and neighbors: one in her early forties and a mother of two preteen girls; one married to a doctor and a successful business woman; one a princess, unhappily married, and a social butterfly, the fourth woman is the matriarch, a closet alcoholic, married to a successful attorney who plans to be the next US Senator for Colorado. Months into their abduction with no beauty salons, nail salons, withdrawal from children, and alcohol, the women’s true personalities begin to blossom.

The twenty-eight-year-old kidnapper questions who will be changed the most, him or his captives. He has promised to release them in seven months, allowing them to return to their lives with new perspectives and tell the FBI what happened. But will he keep his word? Moreover, what could be the driving reason behind the women’s kidnapping?

Revenge is evident, but by whom and for what reason?

Twelve Years a Slave

By Solomon Northup / Genre: Historical, Biographies & Memoirs / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (065 reviews)

Twelve Years a Slave

The harrowing true story that inspired the critically acclaimed film
The son of a freed slave, Solomon Northup lived the first thirty years of his life as a free man in upstate New York. In the spring of 1841, he was offered a job: a short-term, lucrative engagement as a violinist in a traveling circus. It was a trap. In Washington, DC, Northup was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years on plantations in Louisiana, enduring backbreaking labor, unimaginable violence, and inhumane treatment at the hands of cruel masters, until a kind stranger helped to win his release. His account of those years is a shocking, unforgettable portrait of America’s most insidious historical institution as told by a man who experienced it firsthand.
Published shortly after Harriet Beecher Stowe’s abolitionist classic Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Northup’s memoir became a bestseller in 1853. With its eloquent depiction of life before and after bondage, Twelve Years a Slave was a unique and effective entry into the national debate over slavery. Rediscovered in the 1960s and now the inspiration for a major motion picture, Northup’s poignant narrative gives readers an invaluable glimpse into a shameful chapter of American history.

Endless Days (The Firsts Book 2)

Cherise wanted a quiet, normal life…something she had never had. After a traumatic loss, she decided she needed serenity, so she moved halfway across the world to the American states, to a beautiful, quaint village in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. And there, with fresh air, tall trees, and lovely neighbors, she opened a little patisserie, and settled into a wonderful, normal life. Her family had already told her she couldn’t run from her destiny.

Turns out, they were right. The last thing she ever wanted was to see a vampire again. But suddenly, a very damaged one shows up, stripped of his memory, unable to keep human blood down, and in need of help that only someone with her skills could provide. Damn’t! She should have known that something would ruin her perfect quiet life of solitude, gardening, and baking her incredible French pastries. No matter how desperately she wanted to send him away, he needed her. The family legacy couldn’t be denied…she was born to use her empathic skills to help supernaturals bridge the two worlds. Okay, she would help him and send him on his way quickly so that she could get back to her gentle life. Of course, it figured that this vampire was more than an average vampire…he was one of the first bloods, ancient vampires… powerful, rare, arrogant. Cherise had never been attracted to the large, oversexed vampires. So why did her heart race and breath quicken when he came to her for help? Stick with the plan, she told herself, get him well and out of the village. Only it wasn’t going to be that simple when she discovers he’s been the target of horrible torture and abuse. It will take all of her skills to help this man become whole and well again. And maybe more of her than she’s ever had to give before. Maybe she would discover that even an empath doesn’t know what’s in her own heart.

Everyone knew that Melanie’s Uncle Max had a weak heart. When Aunt Peg finds him dead on the cold floor of their championship kennel, surrounded by eleven whining, prize-winning Standard poodles, she isn’t shocked…and doesn’t panic. But Melanie is surprised when, three days after the funeral, Peg shows up seeking her help. One of her prize pooches is missing — and it’s beginning to look like Max’s sudden demise is more a matter of… murder.

With her four-year-old son Davey happily ensconced in day camp, Melanie manages to maneuver herself into Connecticut’s elite canine circles. Posing as a poodle breeder in search of the perfect stud, she mingles with sophisticated exhibitors and professional handlers…and soon starts feeling a little out of her clas. Until she meets Sam Driver. Although the irresistibly attractive breeder is soon wooing her with seductive candle lit dinners, Melanie resolves to be wary.

Then the killer strikes again, and Melanie realizes that she has been barking up the wrong tree. As events — mysterious and romantic — culminate in the celebrated Westminster Dog Show, she suddenly finds herself on a long leash of intrigue and greed…hot on the scent of a chilling secret to die for.

Breakaway (Portland Storm Book 1)

She’s reaching for a breakaway pass.

Dana Campbell has spent the past seven years in self-imposed isolation for a crime she didn’t commit. The danger is well in the past, but her panic attacks make it impossible to have a normal, healthy relationship with a man. Even her counselor has given up on her. She has to find someone she trusts to help her fight through the panic, or her seven-year ordeal will become a lifetime sentence. There’s only one man she feels safe enough to ask.

He got caught with his head down.

As the captain of the NHL’s once elite but now fading Portland Storm, Eric Zellinger knows a thing or two about keeping his focus on the job. Questions are flying about his ability to lead the team back to the playoffs. If they don’t make it, he might be shipped out of town. It’s the worst time possible for his best friend’s kid sister to divide his focus. How can he give her what she needs without jeopardizing both the Storm’s playoff hopes and his future with the team?

It’s her only chance, but it’s his last shot.
