“The author, David Burnett, absolutely grabbed me from page one. I was intrigued by the handfasting ‘ceremony’ that was occurring and then after all of that the very first chapter threw me for a loop!” -Ashley’s Pretty Little Life

Incredibly romantic…incredibly heartbreaking…The Handfasting is a little of both.

For a decade, Katie had hoped and prayed that Steven would keep his promise and come back to her. When he does return, they rekindle their love, and they plan to marry.

Steven, however, is not Katie’s only suitor. Bill had dated her a few times years ago when they were in high school. Nevertheless, he assumes she belongs to him, and when Steven appears, he decides he must formally stake his claim. Katie rebuffs him, and his courtship turns violent.

Confused and humiliated, Katie accepts Bill’s declaration that no decent man will have her, now, and his proposal − a loveless marriage of convenience to a man she despises − seems to be her only option. People in her rural hometown expect them to marry, but Katie begins to consider how much she might risk to wed the man she truly loves.

“A most exciting successor to his first novel — and it is just as rugged.” -The Times

James Ogilvie had emerged from Sandhurst as a young subaltern bound for his baptism of fire in India.

Two generations of Ogilvies have served the 114th Highlanders, the Queen’s Own Royal Strathspeys.

James Ogilvie is the third generation.

But his career as a subaltern with the 114th Highlanders, The Queen’s Own Royal Strathspeys, has offered him ample proof of his superior officer’s observation that the Queen’s service ‘isn’t a damn bunfight for old ladies’.

Especially when after a severe reprimand for a disastrous patrol, James is sent on another during which, it is hoped, he will redeem himself.

Yet although this results in what is apparently ignominious failure, it brings an unexpected recruit who, in the ultimate confrontation at Fort Gazai, can help make all the difference between defeat and victory.

But only James can make the bold and risky decision to use this man, unorthodox though it may be, to bring victory.

And only success will justify the decision…

Award-Winner

Lifetimes of family secrets. Threats from every direction. A young woman forced to discover the truth.

Tessa Lamar, a Southern girl with a crazy family and a brand new college degree, wants nothing more than for her life to finally start. When her uncle dies unexpectedly, she inherits more than his old truck. As lifetimes of family secrets send her carefully planned world into a tailspin, she realizes nothing will ever be the same.

After learning that she is not only a Firebird, but also half Nunnehi–the Cherokee equivalent to fairy–Tessa is forced to fight for her life against a conjurer determined to kill her, Tribal Elders trying to manipulate her, a crazier-than-a-bat mother, wolves, snakes, and one pissed off ghost. Worse still, she’s caught between a gorgeous blue-eyed cop and a Nunnehi bodyguard who she can’t decide if she wants to throttle or kiss. Good thing she was raised by two tough Southern ladies.

Journal Of A Trapper: Nine Years in the Rocky Mountains, 1834-1843 – Amazon
by Osborne Russell
Rating: 4.3

Price: $0.99 Save $3.00

“Perhaps the best account of the fur trapper in the Rocky Mountains when the trade there was at its peak.” -Aubrey L. Haines

In 1834, Osborne Russell joined an expedition from Boston, under the direction of Nathaniel J. Wyeth, which proceeded to the Rocky Mountains to capitalise on the salmon and fur trade.

He would remain there, hunting, trapping, and living off the land, for the next nine years.

Journal of a Trapper is his remarkable account of that time as he developed into a seasoned veteran of the mountains and experienced trapper.

In Russell’s own words he explains to the reader “if you are in search of the travels of a classical and scientific tourist, please lay this volume down, and pass on, for this simply informs you what a trapper has seen and experienced. But if you wish to peruse a hunter’s rambles among the wild regions of the Rocky Mountains, please read this”.

Russell encounters grizzly bears, hunts buffalos, trades with Native Americans and suffers from the extreme conditions of his mountainous environment. His account is written in vivid prose that transports the reader to nineteenth century Northwest America.

Of particular note are his descriptions of the landscapes in which he lived. Although it had not been designated a national park during Russell’s time, his portrayal of Yellowstone is truly breath-taking.

This is the perfect book for anyone wishing to find out more about the lives of the mountain men, what they ate, how they hunted, what shelters they used and how they survived in some of the most inhospitable conditions.

Award-Winning Author

So what’s a nice Jewish girl doing at an Easter sunrise service?

Lawyer Rebecca Schwartz would pick the one with the body nailed to the landmark cross! Coincidence? Not so much. She’s there because her boy friend’s covering the service for the San Francisco Chronicle. The body’s there because someone’s making a statement he doesn’t want the press to miss.

Next: mass shellfish poisoning at Pier 39. A very different kind of serial killer is operating here—one who seems to have a grudge against the whole city.

And this is a very different kind of serial killer tale—a funny one. (If your don’t count the murders, or course.) Rebecca’s warm and witty, never takes herself too seriously, and on one occasion offers closing testimony with green hair. A highly embarrassing moment, but the bright chartreuse is all in the service of making her case.

No way does she believe her client would nail somebody—especially to a cross. And the things she has to do to prove it are hilarious and often unorthodox, yet always professional. Sometimes hyper-professional–the average lawyer simply can’t be bothered spraying herself with Thunderbird to fit in with her witnesses!

A wild ride through Baghdad by the Bay…and a great courtroom drama.

“Fast-paced compelling YA debut.” -Giselle Green, #1 bestselling author

When fifteen-year-old nerd and gamer Max Anderson thinks he’s sneaking a preview of an unpublished video game, he doesn’t realize that…

2) He’s playing the ultimate history game, transporting him into the actual past: anywhere and anytime. And 3) Survival is optional: to return home he must decipher the game’s rules and complete its missions–if he lives long enough. To fail means to stay in the past–forever.

Especially after rescuing a beautiful peasant girl from a deadly infection and thus provoking sinister wannabe Duke Ott.

Shattered.

Destroyed.

Ruined.

That’s what I did. I took everything that we had, and crushed it all, destroying Garrett in the process.

Like a dream or quite possibly a nightmare, Garrett walked back into my life.

And now, I’m torn, torn between what I want, the man I’ve always loved, and what I think I deserve.

But am I too broken to have the future I’ve always wanted?

Kyle Sander is an expert at starting over.

But his perfect life came screeching to a halt the day Ronnie Axel skipped town without a good-bye.

A decade later, the little rich girl he’d loved is back, looking sexier than ever. Finally, he has the chance to work her out of his system. Too bad he’s never been able to separate sex and love when it comes to Ronnie.

This time, their connection is stronger than ever. Unfortunately, the years apart didn’t fix their issues. Ronnie’s obligation to the Axel fortune threatens to tear them apart a second time. But it’s the family scandal involving her that might make their separation not only permanent, but…deadly.

Pastor Joanna Benally leads a double life. On the outside, she’s dedicated to the work of turning around troubled churches. But inside, she is lonely and unfulfilled, keeping everyone at arm’s length to hide the shameful secrets of her past.

When Jo is sent to Newark, Ohio, on church business, she is knocked off her feet by a handsome redheaded young man who claims he is Cain, history’s oldest murderer—and a vampire. He’s taken it upon himself to butcher sinners, sadistically using his telepathic abilities to enjoy his victims’ terror and pain. As Jo struggles with the ethical dilemma of how to respond to this murderer, Cain slowly dismantles her carefully constructed isolation.

Then, when Jo kills two men in self-defense, an unexpected chain of events ushers her into a reality she never imagined possible. She learns she’s a “beacon,” a genetically marked vessel for the magnetic power that enables vampires to feed off of humans.

As danger and betrayal emerge in unexpected places and the line between good and evil blurs, Jo must choose between the truth of radical love and the safety of false appearances.

Action-packed, romantic, and thought provoking, Beacon explores the possibility that vampirism is both scientifically possible and part of God’s plan.

Sometimes second chances can kill you.

From the moment he woke that early March morning, Chase Hampton knew, once he was released from prison later that day, he was never going back. No matter what.

Born into a wealthy but flawed North Carolina shipbuilding family, Chase was somehow immune to the dysfunction. The sky was the limit for the 18-year old football prodigy, until one terrible event changed the course of his life and prison became his new home. Through the highs and lows of his incarceration, there was one person he couldn’t forget, no matter how hard he’d tried: childhood best friend Bailey Masters. For reasons unknown to him, she’d shunned him ever since her mysterious return to Foggy Harbor at the beginning of their sophomore year.

Now, seven years into a twelve-year manslaughter sentence, Chase is given an unusual second chance, one that comes with its own set of rules. Suddenly, he’s thrust into a position he’s not ready for: the tip of the spear in a quiet war against an American enemy. A war that could cost him his family . . . and his life.

Who is killing the Gods?

Man created The Machine. The Machine gave to each man or woman a world of their own design, to do with as they pleased. They became Gods – omnipotent, absolute rulers; but also vain, arrogant, hedonistic and brutal.

Now someone is killing them.

The enforcer, a servant of the Gods, is tasked with finding the killer, but first he must train a new apprentice. Given a list of worlds to investigate, they set out trying to find a key to the identity of a killer they cannot hope to overcome. In their travels they come across worlds dedicated to the study of butterflies, to the perfection of music, to eternal war, and to a magical storybook existence where animals talk and act like characters from a children’s story; and on each world they find a brutal disregard for the people who serve the Gods.

As the death toll mounts, and the pressure from their masters to find the killer increases, they learn more and more about the strange universe of The Machine, and about themselves. But soon they face the ultimate question: is the killer a monster…or a hero?
