When mankind is visited by Three Great Apocalypses, the only thing standing in their way is a feckless but loyal, easily distracted yet occasionally ferocious German shepherd named Bones, a one-time cadaver dog with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. This is his amazing story.

In Bones, our hero must battle a plague of dangerous parasites that brings the dead back to life with the goal of destroying the planet. Shepherd finds Bones delivered to earthquake-devastated Los Angeles to hunt for survivors only to run afoul of armies of rage-driven rats and birds emerging from the rubble. And when mankind reaches its final hour and a pocket of surviving Indians are all that’s left of humanity, it falls on Bones to save the species before civilization is wiped out forever in Alpha.

Three Apocalyptic novellas of nature run amok, three interwoven stories that feature a German shepherd at the center of the things, three stories with so much action you might just explode reading them.

Surrender to Fate (Fate's Path Part One: A New Adult Romance Series)

How do you fight against fate? You don’t. You can’t. You can only surrender to fate in Jacelyn Rye’s new release!

Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.

For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.

Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.

Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.

Picture Perfect

By Alessandra Thomas / Genre: Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Fiction / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (107 reviews)

Picture Perfect

Fashion design major Cat Mitchell has a closet full of gorgeous clothes – and not a single thing fits. After two years of runway modeling for easy cash, an accident shattered her lower leg bone and her self-esteem in just one swift fall. Ten months of no exercise, prescription steroids, comfort eating and yoga pants meant returning to campus as a size twelve instead of her former size two.

When her gorgeous long-time friend with benefits sees her for the first time after her accident and snubs her in front of all her friends, Cat’s self-image hits rock bottom. Her sorority sisters all insist that she looks gorgeous, but all Cat sees is the roll of her stomach when she sits down, or the dimpling at the back of her thighs that wasn’t there last year. Cat’s therapist prescribes something radical to stop the downward spiral – nude modeling for a nearby college’s human form drawing classes.

When Cat faces her fears and bares it all for the class, she realizes that she’s posing naked in front the most gorgeous, buffest guy she’s ever seen in her life. He asks her out after the class, and after one steamy night and six weeks of perfect dates together, Cat’s absolutely smitten.

But when Cat goes home with Nate for Thanksgiving, she discovers something shocking from his recent past that proves that he hasn’t always been so encouraging of women of all shapes and sizes. Cat has no idea what to think, but she does know one thing – this might destroy their relationship before it’s even had a chance to get off the ground.

Before Cat can figure out whether the real Nate is the sensitive, adoring guy she fell in love with, or an undercover asshole, she’ll have to finally feel comfortable in her own skin – even if it means leaving him forever.

Don’t be jealous, it sucks. I can’t control it. My mind is a mutinous SOB that takes over when I go to sleep. I’m just a girl trying to get some shut eye while it decides to throw a rager that can land me just about anywhere in the world.

Nick is extraordinary as well. He can’t feel fear. Never has, never will. It’s worked out for him as a PJ in the Air Force, one of the most dangerous jobs in the military, but where it’s not helpful is with his social skills. Nick is cold, distant and apathetic.

He’s also my hero. And if he’s to be believed, I’m his.

A. J. “Jesse” Prieo, a small town Deputy Sheriff, led a life of comfort with a loving family by his side. All that changed in an instant when genetically engineered creatures were set loose on an unsuspecting world. The creatures, terrifyingly similar to velociraptors, were cynically designed to remove humanity’s surplus numbers. The situation soon spiraled out of control, and these ‘Raptors’ quickly became the new apex predator.

Helped by Cory Melkin, a former radical; Evelyn Phelps, a woman of many hidden talents; and Kate, a lost child who knows more than she is saying, Jesse must survive long enough to uncover the dark secrets that led to The Raptor Apocalypse and prevent the extinction of the human race.
