“I absolutely love this series! The author does such a wonderful job with such a straightforward storyline!” -Emily P.

The youngest daughter of the Duke of Westbrook, Harmonia Seaworth is gentle, beautiful and sweet.

She has never expected her life to be anything but ordinary and, as the last daughter left at Seaworth Manor, had thought it would consist of nothing more than caring for her ailing father and watching her sisters’ children grow.

Surely she wouldn’t be expected to find a husband before her father’s passing as well.

But it seems her father’s dying wish to see his daughters married well before he passes extended to her too. Only, left on her own, she isn’t exactly the type to foster a social life helpful in finding a suitable husband.

As always, her father, the Duke, is more than ready to see to things himself. Equally as common, as it seems for the Seaworth sisters, is that just as she relents to settle for the quickest and easiest match, the least likely suitor comes her way to make her feel things she never thought she could.

Now, pursued by Luke Seaworth, a distant cousin, Harmonia finds herself inadvertently falling into the arms of Philip Marshal, the newly-instated Earl of Swansea.

But can she trust Philip?

Or is all that she has been told about him true? And what about her father’s wish to see her wed to Luke?

Could he really be as terrible as Philip says he is, or is Philip the real rake, out to take advantage of her and the possible passing of her wealthy dying father?

“Excellent account, well written and a fascinating read.” -Catamaran’78

The War of the Roses was one of the most violent periods of English history.

For over thirty years periods of intense conflict broke out as opposing factions vied for power.

As the historian William Stubbs said, “Weak as is the fourteenth century, the fifteenth is weaker still, more futile, more bloody, more immoral.”

But out of this turbulence arose the strong, consolidated state of Tudor England.

R. B. Mowat’s brilliant study of these momentous years begin in the aftermath of Edward III’s death. He provides a fascinating overview the internecine warfare that occurred and the various prominent figures that rose up during the period to change the balance of power.

Mowat’s work uncovers who were the Yorkists who fought under the white rose and who were the Lancastrians who fought under the red rose and explains in detail the various battles that took place across the length and breadth of the country.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in one of the most formative wars of English history that brought the medieval period to an end and set up Henry Tudor on the throne of England.

Washburn County Deputy Amber Monroe is following in the footsteps of her sister, Jade. She devours everything she can during her detective training in hopes of being promoted soon.

Living in small-town USA has its advantages, like a sense of security, and disadvantages, like being close to Milwaukee and its crime. Washburn County has become the dumping ground of murder victims, courtesy of its neighboring county to the south.

When two men are discovered on the outskirts of North Bend, each with a bullet to the head, Amber’s team, led by Lieutenant Jack Steele, hits the highway in search of a killer.

Assisted by the Milwaukee PD, they go deep into Brew City’s underbelly, which reveals far more than anyone ever expected. Crimes involving murder and counterfeiting keep the team running in every direction, but it’s Amber’s attraction to a new man in North Bend that puts her front and center on the killer’s short list.

She doesn’t get far before the entire case turns upside down.

A baseball player, a fisherman – a young man looking for answers.

Perhaps no pursuits stir the passions of dreamers and poets like baseball and fly fishing. For Nick Grimes, a small town kid with big dreams, these two pastimes and sports are more than pursuits of the soul, they are means to an end. Or so he thinks.

We first see Grimes as a talented pitcher and a cocksure young man with his sights firmly set on a Major League baseball career. With his blazing fastball he uses to zip past hitters, his destiny as a big league ballplayer seems inevitable. He’s barely out of high school when he signs a professional contract to pitch for the Detroit Tigers organization. But when the minor leagues prove to be tougher than what he bargained for, he finds himself out of baseball and learning life’s hard lessons.

Whether fishing for trout in the mountains of Pennsylvania or learning about love, Grimes is a young man chasing happiness, his place in the world. He’s a man who must live life on his own terms, but does he know what he really wants?

Rejecting conventional jobs, Grimes embarks on a different life, that of a fishing guide. But he’ll find happiness to be an elusive creature, and the people he meets along his remarkable life journey will teach him some of its most valuable lessons.

There’s the woman writer with her own dreams, her own ambitions, who captures Grimes’ heart. His father, who gave up his own dreams to remain a factory worker, and a pitching coach who sees something special in Grimes, urge him to take second chances. But perhaps the most unforgettable character is Sir, Jon, a mysterious fly fisherman leading a Thoreau-like existence in the mountains, who offers him life’s most important lesson. His brief encounters with Sir Jon are wake-up calls for the young man, and will provide readers with some of the most unforgettable moments of this remarkable story.

Nick Grimes will learn all about love and sex, death, despair and dashed dreams, but perhaps most of all, hope and rejuvenation.

I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire shit either.

My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.

Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ’swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.

I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom.

For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.

But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.
