Top 50 Amazon Bestseller

One city of two million people and only three months to find her. What are his chances?

Isabel Antunes is content with her life as director of the English Academy in Lisbon. Then she’s hit by a man on a bike—a man her boss just hired to be her assistant. Despite Simon Ackerley’s repeated assurances to the contrary, Isabel believes he’s after her position, but she won’t hand it over without a fight. As if dealing with him all week is not enough, he shows up at church as well. Her only solace is in writing to the pen pal she knows as “Elliot”.

Simon Ackerley told his father that he was moving to Lisbon for the job. But that isn’t the only reason. Simon is looking for Amélie, the pen pal he’s written for fifteen years. A woman he knows everything about—except her real name and address.

When the biking accident reveals that Simon’s prickly co-worker Isabel is the elusive Amélie, he knows he has to win her trust before he can confess his true identity. If only he could tell her the actual reason why he’s come, he’s sure Isabel would treat him differently. But she’s not ready for the truth.

Adventures of the First Settlers on the Oregon or Columbia River, 1810-1813 – Amazon

“Well told and very interesting. There is much to be learned from this book of history, anthropology, geography, business and certainly of the human spirit. Highly recommended.” -John L.

In 1810, Alexander Ross joined John Jacob Astor’s Pacific Fur Company to explore the northwest region of America and gain control of the fur trade. For the next three years the Company and its men would face extreme hardships in the quest to create a monopoly in this potentially lucrative enterprise.

Ross provides fascinating details on the Native American tribes of the Columbia River in the early nineteenth century. He was in frequent contact with the Chinooks, but also came across Clatspops, Cathlamux, Wakicums, Wacalamus, Cattleputles, Clatscanias, Killimux, Moltnumas and Chickelis.

Throughout the book Ross provides a day by day account of what the Company did, where they explored, who they traded and fought with, even to smaller details of how they hunted and what they ate.

Life was extremely difficult for the adventurers. At points conflicts broke out with Native Americans, the deadliest of which was when the Captain Thorn of the ship Tonquin insulted a Native American causing the Natives to kill all those on board and destroy the ship. This action left the Company’s outpost without seaborne transport for the next year.

The conflicts with Native Americans, brutal forces of weather and geography, along with the tough competition from the more experienced rivals such as the North West Company, meant that the Pacific Fur Company did not survive past 1813, and during its three-year existence sixty one people lost their lives.

An Aging Star’s Race to Save His Family

Matt Martin is a Hollywood star from another era. He is still well known for his Westerns. His best roles – as well as his personal happiness – are apparently behind him. He contemplates spending his golden years alone. Although he plays a fearless hero, he now faces the most challenging role of this life with uncertainty. Here he employs Los Angeles private detective Bart Northcote to locate his estranged daughter.

Things turn around for Matt after he invites his daughter and the mother of his child to his idyllic estate. He kicks his alcohol habit, and enjoys his new found family. But not everyone is his entourage is happy. His daughter is kidnapped and held for ransom. Bart is given clear instructions. Neither the police nor the FBI will be involved. The matter will be handled “in house.”

Bart is drawn to Matt’s daughter, and idolizes Matt, who is now acts more like a vengeful villain in a cowboy film rather than the hero in a white hat. It is almost certain that someone close to Matt is involved in the kidnapping. In that case paying the ransom will not guarantee a happy ending, but could spell disaster. Can Bart find the culprits before it is too late?

“I adored this story! It was so extremely different from most werewolf romance, and it was awesome.” -Whitney (Shooting Stars Reviews)

Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she’d ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf – a werewolf who has bitten her.

Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids – certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with. Even when she’s bitten by a massive animal after a reckless night of teenage adventure and her body begins to change in mystifying ways, she can’t force herself to believe in what she’s convinced is impossible. Little does she realize she’s been infected with a disease a little more permanent than the rabies she feels fortunate to have not contracted.

Lycanthropy.

Her fierce denial is soundly shattered, however, when she is simultaneously saved and kidnapped by Bastian and his pack. Forced to leave small town Iowa behind and adjust to their way of life in a hidden society, Katherine must also deal with fighting the pull she feels towards the man – or wolf, rather – who has bitten her and disrupted her life so completely.
