“…it gives a very unique look into the solitary life of a scout and hired gun in the real old west. A must read.” -goldpan2000

1903.

Tom Horn awaits execution for the murder of fourteen-year-old boy.

He writes this memoir.

Tom Horn was born in Missouri, in 1860. His parents, who were deeply religious, regularly beat him – on one occasion leaving him laid up in the family barn, where he needed a week to recover.

Their attempts to beat him into submission soon ended when aged just fourteen years old, he left home and headed West.

With $11 in his pocket after selling his rifle, and nothing to stay for after his beloved dog had been shot, young farm boy Tom Horn traveled through Kansas and reached Santa Fe in 1874.

Horn went on to become many things.

He was to become a pivotal figure in the cattle business, making a name for himself amid growing hostility between cattle barons and settlers as a government scout and interpreter for Generals Wilcox, Crook and Miles in the Apache wars.

He was assistant to the infamous Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts, and was known as the ‘King of Cowboys’.

He was a Pinkerton, a cowboy, a range detective and a gunman with potentially lethal ability – yet he was well respected and known as a gentleman who was true to his word.

In this account of his life, he recounts the shocking events that led to his imprisonment for the murder a fourteen year old boy.

It was a crime for which he was hanged in 1904, and many think he was wrongly accused.

Life of Tom Horn is a compelling western and a story of guilt, innocence and justice amongst the Apache Wars.

“Terrific action at sea, on land and in the air … breathless pace. Evans ranks as a top adventure writer.” –Publishers’ Weekly

The year is 1939…

Captain David Cochrane Smith, intelligence officer, is sent on an assignment to extract the American war correspondent, Hannah Fitzsimmons, from Franco’s Guardias. He must get her out of Spain before she’s tried and shot as a spy. But in rescuing the American he makes a narrow escape from German officer Kurt Larsen, a man who will dog his footsteps throughout his wartime adventure.

Smith wants command of a ship – but he’s told that his services in Intelligence are still required. En route to a new posting in Montevideo, his ship is attacked and he is taken prisoner in spite of his heroic efforts to destroy the enemy warship. The Brandenburg, the German ship he is imprisoned on, is setting out to support the Graf Spee, a pocket battleship which can do immense damage to the British fleet – but only with the Brandenburg’s help.

Smith will be shot as a spy if he is found to be more than the naval officer he claims to be, and Kurt Larsen, on board the Brandenburg, is more than suspicious of the British officer…

The captain is the only one who realizes the danger the Brandenburg poses to the British navy should it reach the Graf Spee in time. Desperate to buy time for the British fleet, and aware that he has a very personal stake in the upcoming battle, Smith will have to go to extreme lengths to sabotage the German war effort…

Will he be victorious in his battle for the seas? Or will he and his men become Orphans of the Storm…?

Will I find my twin and learn exactly what they did to me before it’s too late?

Award-Winning Author

Be careful what you wish for-

Meg Zabrinski wants a child. She’s a successful scientist, a well-known environmental advocate, and a tenured professor. She doesn’t need a man in her life to make this happen. But having a baby alone is a weighty decision, so she retreats to her isolated mountain cabin to write and think. When Henry Firestone–an old foe from her distant past–drops out of the sky on Christmas Eve with three young children and a baby, Meg tells herself she’d be crazy not to consider all her options–especially when she’s always nursed a secret crush on the handsome rancher. Although the sparks between them ignite a mutual passion, Henry makes it clear he’s done having children. Falling in love with Henry Firestone and his beautiful family would require Meg to give up her dream. Can the Lone Wolf assimilate into a new pack, or was this Big Sky Maverick meant to be alone?

They say timing is everything-

Henry Firestone doesn’t recognize the “angel in snowshoes” who comes to his rescue in the middle of a blizzard, immediately, but Meg Z. knows him. Twenty years earlier, the media paired them as rivals to the death. Meg championed the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone, while Henry argued just as passionately that wolves would put ranchers on the Endangered Species List. She’s still beautiful, independent and headstrong, and Henry’s now free to admit that he always had a thing for her. Unfortunately, he’s fighting for sole custody of his late daughter’s four children. They are his biggest priority. He’d do anything to keep his family together–even sleep with the enemy in hopes that she might join his cause.

“A beautiful novel …deserving of 5 stars … images so profound I felt like I was actually living Megan’s life with her.” -The San Francisco Book Review

Award-Winning Author

MEGAN KIMSEY, born and raised in a small Colorado town on the edge of the La Plata Mountains, grows up haunted by images. Straddling cryptic glimpses of events that foretell her own future, and events remembered from a past in the highlands of Ecuador and Peru more than 400 years before she was born, she must challenge her Catholic upbringing and the stigma of a mental breakdown following a childhood tragedy, before she can strike out on a quest for meaning.

Megan’s story shifts between present tense and flashbacks that recount her nervous breakdown and grief, when, as a teenager, a child she loves freezes to death on the family’s front porch. And later, when her father, the one person who believes her strange visions aren’t hallucinations, dies in a hit-and-run accident. His death and the belated birthday gift he leaves for her, launch her on a quest to face her phantoms and piece together the riddles in her dreams.

Megan’s journey leads her to South America and an expedition among the remnants of the Inca Empire, and finally, to a wind-swept outcropping high atop Cotopaxi Mountain in search of the frozen child she sees in her dreams. Accompanied by a team of archeologists and an indigenous woman of wisdom who becomes her mentor and guide, Megan must confront her ghosts and claim her own redemption.

“…characters are likable and believable, the dialogue concise, and the conflicts and story line flow smoothly to a satisfying conclusion.” -Duke of Earle

The mayor of Fulton Springs, Alabama, has one thing on his mind: His reelection, and the money and power that come with it. He’s an old pro in the political game and quick to sell out the public to special interests if the price is right. He says all his decisions are made in the best interest of his citizens, so they should just shut up and follow the rules.

Restaurant owner, Frank Standish, is tired of having his business hamstrung by all the new taxes and regulations that crop up at each city council meeting helmed by the mayor’s lackeys. The cronies in office are choking off his livelihood and stomping on his freedom. So Frank decides to do something about it.

Backed by a surge of grassroots support, Frank and his family and friends at The Bull, a local bar and barbecue pit, mount a blue-collar revolt against government run amok. Frank runs on a groundbreaking political platform: a promise to serve only a single term on behalf of the freedom-loving citizens of Fulton springs, imposing his own strict term limit to insulate himself from the influence of outside interests. His strategy resonates wildly with the voters who orchestrate an underdog campaign to unseat the mayor — a concerted effort that refuses to be silenced by slanderous propaganda, corrupt authority, vindictive police or even bullets from a gun.

With a red-hot rebellious streak steeped in rich southern tradition, this is the story of Frank Standish and company, who are sick of the city telling them what to do. And they plan to make a change, whether the mayor likes it or not.

Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers. Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked. Confidentiality is our special obligation.

Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age ten. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home.

When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in.

Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him.

When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman.

Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after…

A deadly carnivorous insect.

A group of scientists trapped in the remote Brazilian rainforest.

One horror filled night.

Entomologist Howard Duncan has a generous grant and a wealthy lover. Now he’s on the verge of a find in the Brazilian rainforest that will reenergize his career: the rarely sighted reptilus blaberus, an insect like no other.

But something has changed – nature has started producing an antidote to the fungal infection that previously held the insect population in check. Skeletons provide Duncan and his team with an ominous first clue about the potential consequences. And as the hunters become the hunted, the team must fight for their lives if they want to survive the terror-filled night.
