There’s something so special about a Christmas Kiss.

And when it’s your first?

Never underestimate the power of that kiss!


Emma Louise Fallon, aka Elf, has two wishes for Christmas. Having spent the last few months bragging about her latest boyfriend, who’s turned out to be a womanizing cheat, one, she needs to escape her well-meaning family, and, two, she needs to avoid all men while she’s in a man-hating mode.

But stranded alone in a cold isolated cabin, when her girlfriend is forced to bail out on their vacation plans, Elf makes one more desperate wish: Can she please learn how to build a fire before she freezes to death?

The solo rustic life is becoming all too much for her. She’s convinced that a stray cat, who has decided to keep her company, has magical powers, that the local shop owners are secretly Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and nothing can stop her from laughing when the hot local Martian -come cop – come veterinarian – introduces himself as Rudi.

Will Elf need to break her rule about staying away from men, and rely on this hunk for helping her start a fire? Or, worse, yet, will she be able to control the fire that Rudi’s ignited in her?


Seventeen-year-old Jason Matthews made a wish when he’d shared a kiss with Katherine Conlin under the mistletoe at Dragonfly Pointe, fourteen years ago. Now an Air Force Captain and wounded warrior, he awakens in the hospital in Germany, where his dreams have been invaded by the girl from his past.

Once he returns home to the states, he finds out approaching Kat might be a little more difficult than he’d thought, since she’s been in a long term relationship for nearly two years.

But another year later, when Jason discovers she’s on her way to the Dragonfly Pointe Inn for the Christmas holidays, without her boyfriend, he seizes the opportunity to be reacquainted.

Kat had been expecting a proposal this Christmas, and when her boyfriend backs out, yet again, on the carefully laid plans she’s made for them, she realizes she probably wouldn’t be happy with him anyway.

Kat has often wondered what happened to Jason Matthews, the boy she’d made a wish with years ago, and the last thing she expects is to run into him again at the Dragonfly Pointe Inn.

Will there still be that special Christmas magic between them, to make those long ago wishes come true?

Award-Winning Author

South Pole Station, A.K.A the Butt Crack of the World, any teenager’s worst nightmare, and home to free-spirit Ionia Sonberg.

To shake up her bland, boring, stuck-on-blah life, Ionia defies her uber-controlling mother and adds a companion droid, Den, to the supply requisition. The droid’s arrival takes Ionia’s relationship with her mom from toxic to Seventh Level of Frozen Hell.

Ionia and her droid escape the station by stowing way on a cargo plane bound for Mac Town, the biggest city on the continent. But just as she reaches her destination, a terrorist attack forces her to choose between freedom and family loyalty.

Den’s primary programming dictates that he please his mistress, but accompanying Ionia across the Antarctic tundra into imminent danger does not match the definition of pleasure in any of his manuals. Yet, his greatest desire is to keep her from harm, and he’s willing to risk his very existence to ensure her safety. Whether she likes it or not.

Together they must travel over Earth’s harshest terrain to uncover a secret that may save or destroy them both.

British forces invade a stronghold of the Ottoman Empire, fighting German officers, Arab conscripts and Turkish troops. But as the British armies advance, the Germans suspect they have a traitor within their ranks. An agent – code-named Daniel – is transmitting messages to the British from the heart of the German headquarters.

If they can’t stop him, the war will be lost.

But as the Germans dig deeper, they discover an espionage ring called Nili made up of Zionist Jews supporting the British. They begin to close in on the ring. But will they ever unearth the true identity of Daniel? And what is the true purpose of the organization known as Nili?

In this gripping novel, Colin Smith interweaves the stories of British Tommies, German officers and Jewish nationals.

In a tale of intrigue and espionage the hunt for Daniel turns into a race against time, as the British prepare to meet the Austrian troops on the brutal battlefield at Huj.

Spies of Jerusalem brilliantly blends fact with fiction in a novel that will appeal to fans of Alan Furst and and John Le Carre.


Fear God and Take Your Own Part – Amazon
by Theodore Roosevelt

Genre: Non-Fiction
Price: $0.99 Save $3.00

“Its remarkable chapters are treated in a style almost brutal in its frankness and regard to truth.” -The Columbia Spectator

Fear God and Take Your Own Part is Theodore Roosevelt’s cutting criticism of pacifism and the lack of preparedness of his country under Woodrow Wilson’s administration.

Writing two years after the outbreak of World War One, Roosevelt saw that helpless nations such as Belgium were being utterly destroyed by the forces of war, yet the United States was following a policy a neutrality.

America itself was under threat by Germany, its merchant shipping was being attacked and the Lusitania had been sunk in 1915 causing the deaths of over one thousand innocent passengers. However, even despite this Roosevelt continued to see his beloved nation pursuing an isolationist and pacifist policy.

Roosevelt therefore uses this book as a call to arms. He urges the government to begin training its young men in preparation for the fight which he believed the United States must join.

This work is a collection of long essays in which Roosevelt comments on a wide variety of America’s foreign policy issues. As the New York Times states, one chapter provides a “slashing indictment” of Wilson’s “Administration toward Mexico, wherein Colonel Roosevelt charges that the President has, in effect, interfered in Mexico in the matter of purely internal affairs and has refused to interfere for the protection of American citizens.”

Although Roosevelt wrote Fear God and Take Own Part one hundred years ago it remains as pertinent for the twenty-first century as it was for the twentieth.

Avalon was the flagship of the Castle Federation in the last war, now twenty years past. The first of the deep space carriers, no other warship in the fleet holds as many honors or has recorded as many kills.

No other warship in the fleet is as old.

Accepting the inevitable, the Federation Space Navy has decided to refit her and send her on a tour of the frontier, showing the flag to their allies and enemies as a reminder of her glory – and then decommission her for good.

But Avalon has been a backwater posting for ten years – and has problems a mere refit can’t fix. The systems along her planned tour have been seeing pirates for the first time in decades, and there are rumblings of Commonwealth scouting ships all along the border.

It may be Avalon’s final tour – but it looks to be anything but quiet!
