Once a pirate…

…Always her man

When Navy Lieutenant Carly Callahan is forced to bail out of her fighter jet during a freak storm, she plummets into the greatest battle of her life—two centuries before she was born. Rescued by a pirate captain who believes she’s an heiress, she learns she’s the pawn in his plan to exact revenge against his sworn enemy. Convincing him of the truth pulls them closer as enemies threaten to tear them apart.

Nobleman turned pirate Andrew Spencer has one goal: to ruin the man who destroyed his life. But the strangely garbed blonde he hoists onto his deck not only refuses to admit she’s his highborn target, but insists she’s from another century entirely. The more time they spend together, the more he wants to believe her talk of flying machines and the future. Her bravery and fire is enough to melt his cold heart and convince him to reconsider his plans. A desperate bid to fulfill their dream of a life together is their only option…if they can find each other again through time.

“An exciting story with action, suspense and lots of surprises. The book becomes spell-binding as the story continues. Definitely a great read.” -Jay

When the governor of Mississippi requests her help, Yankee transplant Darla Cavannah can hardly say no—even if the timing couldn’t be worse. She and her dreamy husband, Dr. Stephen Nicoletti, have just been approved to adopt a baby girl in China, and getting wrapped up in a high-profile homicide will almost certainly complicate, if not derail, all their plans. But as Governor Wilson Burnett relays the details of the case, Darla feels deep sympathy—and blinding outrage at a promising life cut short.

On the campus of prestigious Ole Miss, a young African American student has been found killed just hours after her initiation into a previously segregated sorority. The murder would be shocking under any circumstances, but this student is Caitlin Burnett—the white governor’s adopted daughter.

With public outrage building and media coverage intensifying, Darla’s partner, Rita Gibbons, proves invaluable. Her deep roots in the community—or “trailer trash cred”—helps considerably as the crime-solving pair sift fact from fiction. If this murder was racially motivated, why does the most damning evidence appear to have been staged? As the trail leads from Caitlin’s fellow Delta Betas to radical white supremacists and her father’s political enemies, the detectives close in on the disturbing truth—and a devious manipulator pulling all the strings.

“This is an excellent summary of the period, written in a slightly swashbuckling and entertaining style.” -J.D.

The French Revolution sent shockwaves across the world.

Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were beheaded, and in their wake came The Terror, where many more thousands of people lost their heads to the guillotine.

Yet, the repercussions of this moment event did not subside with the execution of Robespierre and other key figures in this murderous revolution.

Instead, it set in motion the rise to power of a young Corsican artillery officer, who would lead his seemingly unbeatable armies across the breadth of the Europe and become the new terror of the continent.

Charles Downer Hazen’s fascinating history, The French Revolution and Napoleon begins with a thorough study of France prior to 1789, explaining how a revolutionary fervor could grip the nation.

Through analyzing the development of the new French constitution and political system, Hazen uncovers how Enlightenment ideals underpinned the monumental changes that occurred through this period.

These ideals were, however, rarely met and Hazen goes onto discuss why the initial idealism of the revolution descended into anarchy, providing Napoleon the perfect opportunity to take power for himself.

Demons, demigods, and the one girl who could stop the darkness. Or bring it…

Kory has never been afraid to walk down a dark street at night for two reasons. One, she can see the bad guys skulking in the shadows, hear their footsteps as they approach, feel their presence closing in. And two, on any given day or night she’s more dangerous than them. Or so she thought.

She’s caught between simply surviving and following the path she was destined for. Rex, the powerful demon hunter, becomes her teacher and the chemistry between them is both undeniable and forbidden.

Relationships and loyalties are tested and, as Kory falls deeper into this new supernatural world, dark secrets arise, hinting that her destiny may be more than she bargained for. Is she simply another demon hunter or is her blood the key to something darker?

The first four books in JC Ryan’s bestselling Rossler Foundation series, available together for the first time!

The 10th Cycle

The truth about human history is about to be revealed. . . But will we be allowed to know it?

For thousands of years the truth about human history has intentionally been suppressed and exploited.

For decades scholars have been saying that the truth about human history will be found inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, but up till now no one has ever been able to find it. Those who tried have been ridiculed and persecuted.

Will Daniel Rossler and Dr. Sarah Clarke be allowed to uncover the real and true message? As they come closer to the truth, skepticism out of the academic community is replaced by evil and malicious adversaries, dumping them into a very hostile world where violence, deceit and duplicity become their daily companions. The mysterious Orion Society with its deranged and psychopathic members, the CIA, the Marines, the Mossad and even the President of the United States become involved. Not all of them have good intentions.

Ninth Cycle Antarctica

Was there a human civilization in Antarctica in the past?

Will we ever know?

In November 2002 a special U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to Antarctica to locate and rescue a film crew that has become lost. No trace of them is found, except for film footage of strange artifacts buried under the ice. Everyone who saw the film is warned to never talk about what they have seen – EVER AGAIN.

More than a decade later, in Boulder, Colorado, Professor Charles Summers is intrigued by the discovery of a 16th century map showing the coastline of Antarctica so accurately that when NASA investigates the maps they find that they must update their own current maps. . But this map predates any record of the discovery of Antarctica by 300 years. .

200 million souls are screaming for revenge.

The Sword of Cyrus will extract that revenge.

This time there is no escape.

In a secret laboratory in the Zagros Mountains of Iran, scientists, under the auspices of the group who calls themselves The Sword of Cyrus, have just developed a nanotech nuclear weapon so small it could fit into a mobile phone, yet it has the destructive power of 7 Hiroshima bombs.
