“I LOVE it! It grabbed me at chapter one and held my interest until the very end. In fact, I finished it in a day!” -G.H.

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author

Buckle up, Kate, it’s going to be a rough ride.


I’ve wanted Kate since I first laid eyes on her, which is insane–she’s half my age and my employee, but I can’t stop wanting her. Needing her.

And when she accidentally discovers my dirty little secret, I have no reason to do the right thing anymore. So I’m going to make her mine in every sense of the word.


I had a crappy 21st birthday, and now I’ve got the hangover from hell. To make matters worse, I have an early morning meeting with my overbearing,pain-in-ass boss, Malcolm York. Instead of using my internship to learn about the ad business, I’m Malcolm’s personal assistant. Assistant? Errand girl, more like.

But when I discover what he’s been hiding, all bets are off.

Hero. Monster. Saviour. Butcher. Madman. Recluse.

There he is troubled by dreams of blood and fire, tormented by memories of his own deeds.

But fate has not quite finished with the victor of Afael.

He receives an impossible message, and as he follows the trail a suspicion grows to a certainty within him. War is coming again, and Narak must leave his beloved wolves and once more take up his twin blades. Once again he must become the general of the six kingdoms, the terror of his enemies, a hero, a butcher, the bloodstained god.

During the era of Augustus, there is a wild, untamed land far in the north, where no Roman sandal has yet trodden, and there Maroboodus, the son and adeling of a Goth lord Hulderic simmers with rage over the many injustices their family has to endure.

Maroboodus is not alone in his malcontent. Competition for survival and glory is a brutal, daily struggle. Life is harsh indeed for the tribes of the north and while god Woden’s people, the troubled Goth nations have spread south and east from the islands of Gothonia, surging over the sea Rome calls Mare Gothonia to find new homes, the family of Maroboodus has taken dangerous lands in the east, pushing the old tribes of the Svea from the coasts. There, death by spear and hunger is part of daily life. The tribes of Maroboodus, led by the mighty Friednot and Hughnot of the Goths, live by the Long-Lake, enduring Saxon raids and Svea hostility. Only family ties and wise alliances can help them, because even the Thiuda of the noblest of the ancient Goth families, their old relative the Boat-Lord, resent and fear those who would build something on their own.

Alliances get strained when high lords die, and old grudges will risk everything when the tribes should remain strong and united. In such a time, the troubled Maroboodus finds his patience and endurance sorely tested by another injustice after a victorious battle, and seeks to change the fortunes of their family, even against the wishes of his father, Hulderic. He does so by allying with their nemesis, hoping to grasp a high-born woman as his own and to bring glory to his name and family.

Will the boldness of Maroboodus change the fate of the squabbling, threatened Goths, or plunge them, and Maroboodus, whose blood is plagued by an ancient curse of Lok, into the arms of their enemies?

In this historical fiction adventure story of ancient Germania, we embark on the road of the trials of Maroboodus the Goth, as he eventually becomes one of the mightiest Germani kings.

One story. Two couples.

I proposed on our first date. She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes. It was a whirlwind, but we were happy… Until we got greedy and wanted a family.

It was a life I couldn’t give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn’t on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn’t have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn’t understand. Finally, we were successful… Until we were forced to bury our son.

We were left broken, battered, and destroyed. They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us.

This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine. The retrieval of my wife and our family.

Suddenly, doors are being opened for her and she has a fabulous, new job that’s reigniting her zest for life.

Bianca expects her friends and family to be supportive of her budding romance with Eric, but to her surprise, they’re all on Team Max and they rally behind him when he launches a campaign to win her back.

The Times Top 10 Bestselling Author

Sam Tynnan is convinced that with his latest novel, The Prophecy – a unique interweaving of ancient prophecies with current-day Islamic terrorism – he’s written the thriller of the year. But when he finds himself targeted, he realizes that some people are determined to bury what’s he’s written.

Adel Al-Shaffir, Egyptian-born, heads an Arabic language ‘activity’ tracking centre at the forefront of hunting down the world’s leading terrorist, Abu Khalish.

But as Tynnan’s manuscript starts being played out in real-life with a chain of bomb attacks and his path collides with Al-Shaffir’s, the question begs: could what Tynnan’s written be used to avoid the prophesied Armageddon of his manuscript?

Or are both of them merely being used as bit players in that script, a terrifying odyssey in which ultimate conflict is unavoidable. A case of art mirroring life or life mirroring art? – with the stakes as never before.


The Art of Health: Simple and Powerful Keys for Creating Health in Your Life – Amazon
by Aarti Patel, N.D.
Rating: 4.8
Genre: Non-Fiction
Price: $0.00 Save $4.99
Make sure price is still $0.00 before clicking “Buy”.

The Art of Health is a fresh and revolutionary approach to health care that teaches you how to take charge of your own health and avoid getting caught up in the expensive, circuitous, fear-based, and often ineffectual medical system. It seeks to highlight what is often overlooked, which is that you, the individual, can be your own best source of vitality by tapping into your innate ability to create a healthy life. Dr. Patel draws on her own experiences treating patients, who have achieved significant improvements in their health and quality of life by following the guidelines covered in this book.

The business of mainstream medicine is getting rich off of Americans who are suffering from poor health and chronic conditions. Prescription drug spending in our country was about $457 billion in 2015, as reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, the 2012 National Health Interview Survey, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showed that Americans spent $12.8 billion on out-of-pocket natural product supplements. These amounts only reflect what is spent on medicine itself, not to mention exorbitant costs for visits to see medical or alternative care providers and other associated procedures.

Meanwhile, a 2009 issue of The Archives of Internal Medicine reported that the risk of developing common chronic disease goes down by as much as 80 percent from simply following a healthier lifestyle. Where can people go for in-depth guidance on how to improve their lifestyles when a typical health care visit is only 10-15 minutes long? The goal of mainstream medicine and the goal of individuals who want to be healthy are often at odds, and have been for a long time. There are so many simple things we can do and learn for ourselves that will increase quality and longevity of life, yet these things are often overlooked in favor of quick fixes, “cures,” fads, and over-reliance on the medical system.

The Art of Health bypasses these sales pitches of mainstream and alternative health care to bring health back to where we live–life itself. It helps you develop more artful, simple, and effective means toward a healthier lifestyle that is more in tune with your body and who you are. The book also presents a creative approach instead of making health into a formulaic chore or burden. The featured recommendations in this book are not extreme, costly, torturous, or promising of miracle results. Yet they can significantly help prevent illness or improve the symptoms of an existing illness, and potentially even reduce dependence on pharmaceutical drugs or other treatments. Most importantly, they can improve overall quality and enjoyment of life.

Simple yet powerful, this book utilizes the metaphor of health as a work of art, and will help to free up your mind and body by providing a solid blueprint for turning your life and health into your very own creative masterpiece. The Art of Health will introduce you to an innovative approach toward health care, including topics such as:

How to pay better attention to your body and its signals

Why understanding how chronic symptoms are interrelated is a key to healing

The importance of choosing long-term health instead of quick fixes

…and much more
