By Creston Mapes / Genre: Christian Fiction, Religion & Spirituality / Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (80 reviews)

Fear Has a Name: A Novel (The Crittendon Files)

It was more than a break-in. More than a stalking. It was personal. When a stalker targets his family, journalist Jack Crittendon must uncover who the person is and what his motives are—if he is to protect the ones he loves. It will lead Crittendon into a world of behind-closed-door secrets and faith gone awry, as does his investigation of a missing pastor, whose apparent suicide is more than it appears. Each move Crittendon makes weaves him tighter and tighter into a web of lies, greed, hypocrisy, sin, and danger. He believed he’d never give in to fear. But that was before. And holding on to his faith won’t be easy. Nor will keeping his family safe, and ending the terror. Because that might require him to step over lines he never dared to cross.

Indiscreet

By Kasey Michaels / Genre: Regency, Historical Romance, Romance / Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars (43 reviews)

Indiscreet

A Note from Kasey:

“In 1998 I was so ready to write another Regency historical, INDISCREET fairly flew from my fingertips onto the computer screen. And I had a ball! I had been so engrossed in history and wanted a break from more serious topics, so I wrote myself a romantic farce (I always write for me, what makes me happy at the time, figuring if I like it maybe someone else will, too).

Indiscreet has, according to reviewers and readers, one of the funniest Prologues in fiction. Even I still giggle a bit when I think of it!

But there’s a serious side to this romantic farce; two people who think they know who they are, what they want … and then get smacked in the face with the realization life doesn’t always fit into neat little boxes.

As I said, I had a grand time writing INDISCREET, and revisiting the book to prepare it for its e-book version delighted me all over again. It’s a good rainy-day-and-I-feel-blah-and-need-to-laugh book. Enjoy!”

Fondly,
Kasey

Say When (Something More)

By Tara West / Genre: Coming of Age / Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars (42 reviews)

Say When (Something More)

He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. It’s so hard to say anything when he’s trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin.

Then there’s the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I’m creating art, almost like he believes I have talent.

He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. Not like my ex-fiancé. Not like my father. He’s got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

And now I’m scared, because that means I’ll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too.
