Cold Comfort

After she’s dumped by her faithless fiancé, Claire Spencer abandons her dreams of a family of her own. Instead, she plots her solo course and settles for a quiet life as an independent Williamsburg shop owner. So how does she become a killer’s target?

Sometime security consultant Riley, burned out, stung by his ex-wife, and haunted by a young girl he couldn’t save, vows never to work with women again. But when a thug tries to kill Claire and she winds up in Riley’s arms, his plans go all to hell. Knowing she’s in danger, he can’t walk away.

Old letters in a hidden trunk reveal long-buried secrets, leading Claire and Riley to political connections with organized crime and Mob hitmen. While dodging a speeding car, ducking bullets, and escaping through murky swamp waters, conventional Claire and freewheeling Riley struggle against their powerful chemistry—if she’s picket fences, he’s barbed wire. Opposites do attract.

The Recluse Storyteller

By Mark W Sasse / Genre: Historical, Literary Fiction / Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (20 reviews)

The Recluse Storyteller

The twins, beckoned by an ominous streak of light across the sky, climb Harper’s Hill to encounter an apparition of their missing father.

The reverend stands on a muddy ridge, the barrel of a rifle in his neck, looking down on a Vietnamese village, scarred by war and regret. 

The brash terrorist, Red Hat, desperately tries to walk away from life unscathed and unattached.

The stories haunt Margaret every waking moment, but they are anything but random. A fractured view Michael Cheevers’ red hat through a discreetly cracked door sends her off on adventure. A glimpse of the Johnson twins from apartment 2D transports her mind to the lonely hill on a Midwestern prairie in 1887. The regular letters from Reverend Davies bring her to the brink of exhaustion as she stares intensely into the heart of war, deep in the jungle of Vietnam. 

Margaret is not insane, at least not in a clinical sense. She’s like a midnight raccoon, painfully aware of her surroundings, gleaning crumbs of information at every turn. Her eyes peer incessantly in the night, stealing glances of the neighbors through partially opened doors. 

But the tales she weaves were not meant to merely hold empty court to the receptive dead air of her apartment. Her stories were meant to embolden the lives of the inhabitants of that drab apartment block because her story is also their story–and everything would be different if they could only hear the prophetic words of the rambling recluse. 

The Recluse Storyteller weaves five stories into one as the loner, Margaret, not only searches for meaning from her reclusive life, but also gives meaning in the most unexpected ways to the troubled souls of her apartment complex. Part adventure, part tragedy, and part discovery, The Recluse Storyteller bridges genres, bringing hope, life, and redemption to the broken relationships of modern society.

Ping – From the Apocalypse

By Susan Lowry / Genre: Psychics, Paranormal, Romance / Rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars (33 reviews)

Ping - From the Apocalypse

The plague should have killed Kate — it appears to have annihilated everyone else on its path. But with no electricity, no-one answering her phone calls, and the roads impassable until spring, the full extent of the disaster is unknown to her. Forced to wait, she contemplates existing as the last person on earth.

The awful effects of her illness linger and she wonders if she is losing her mind. There is a persistent voice in her head, that of a child begging to be rescued — a voice more real than the horror she finds everywhere in her search for survivors.

Eventually, her traumatic journey leads her to Jack — a brooding, secretive, and seductive man who insists that the messages Kate thinks she is receiving from a desperate child is just the result of her stressed imagination. His plans for the two of them are enticing and her attraction to him so persuasive, she’s ready to abandon the unlikely idea she could be telepathic.

The game changes jarringly when a most unexpected person arrives, someone who’s presence spurs Jack to confess a crime too horrible for Kate to imagine. But it’s too late now. Her frenzied escape and the distance between them will not stop the torment he has saddled upon her.

Please note that all reviews before October 2013 refer to the original debut novel, Ping, and not this new, completely revised edition, enhanced with additional chapters, richer characterization, and a more developed storyline. Feedback has been invaluable and reviews of the second edition are welcomed!

The Ping series tells of relationships within a group of people discovering extraordinary abilities when all seems to have been lost. It is about family, love, hope, and hidden potential. The post-apocalyptic setting is bleak and eerie at first but if you are looking for gory battles scenes around every corner, this book is not it. Ping – From the Apocalypse is PA fiction with a human touch.

The Boy who Lit up the Sky (The Two Moons of Rehnor)

Lydia Kalila, the Princess Royal of Mishnah, is forced into marriage with the son of her country’s mortal enemy for the sole purpose of producing an heir.  Duty comes before personal choice for a princess especially when her country has been at war for more than a thousand years.  Lydia’s pregnancy removes her brother and new husband from their respective lines of succession placing her yet unborn infant at the head of the both queues.  No one is happy about this, especially Lydia who dies during childbirth from wounds caused by the talon-like toenails of her very strange newborn son.

Grief stricken at the loss of his daughter, the Mishnese King hastily sends Senya, his infant grandson off to a decrepit inner city orphanage with the intent to retrieve him much later when things got sorted out.  At the orphanage, Senya is protected by the invalid Sister Meri who instantly falls in love with the little fellow.  She’s not bothered at all by his strange telekinetic and telepathic powers, flickering pupil-less silver eyes or wicked clawed toenails. The House Father takes a shine to the lad too and when Senya is six years old, he is summoned to the Father’s chamber.  The Father ends up in flames forcing Meri and Senya out into a snow storm running for their lives. 

Thus begins the tale of Senya, a prince created to be king of a planet but then tossed aside until his twelfth birthday when Lt. Taner, a Royal Guard detective is sent to retrieve him.  It is unclear to all whether Senya is the product of something good or something evil but in either case, it is very apparent that he is something more than just Lydia Kalila’s son.
