Markal, an apprentice wizard, is thrust unexpectedly to the head of his order when his master is decapitated by a gray-skinned assassin. The order’s walled gardens have the power to restore their dead master to life, but only if the apprentices can protect his body long enough for their sanctuary to work its magic.

When a barbarian warrior named Bronwyn invades the gardens wielding a soul-binding sword and accuses the order of harboring a powerful sorcerer, Markal thinks she is another assassin come to finish the job. But Bronwyn is a paladin, a holy warrior from across the mountains, and her presence is a harbinger of a greater threat than Markal had imagined, a necromancer with the power to command the dead.

Together, they must join forces before the necromancer destroys Markal’s order and overruns Bronwyn’s homeland.

Violet Webster is a bride on the run. The last thing she wants is to get married, especially to a stranger twice her age. However, agreeing to be a mail-order bride had been her only option and it paid the steep passage to San Francisco so she could locate her father. She’d find him too, if only her betrothed’s son would stay out of her way.

Garrett Sutherlin is on a mission. Delivering the striking, ebony haired beauty to his father’s doorstep not only paid off his debt, the effort would grant him freedom from the man’s condescending hold. As far as he’s concerned, Miss Webster made her own bed.

Unfortunately, his father will be the one to lie beside her.

Jack Leonard’s father, Billy, is an alcoholic.

Billy isn’t a bad guy. Friends would say he’s the life of the party; his family might refer to him as harmless. After all, he isn’t a mean drunk … he’s a happy drunk.

Unfortunately, these things tend to run in the family, and Jack is on a path to join his dad in the bottle.

Then Jack meets a girl, and what once seemed inevitable, loses its luster. Samantha fills many of the little holes in Jack’s life.

Fast-forward twenty years and his life is almost perfect. Or so it seemed. The Leonard family is going to be tested … and only time will tell if they can survive.

Heart-Pounding Suspense! At a Stress-Reducing Price!

A quartet of cold-sweat-producing mysteries and thrillers set in yesterday, today, and tomorrow — all from the fertile, twisted imaginations of co-authors Bette Golden Lamb and J. J. Lamb.

Descend into the dark depths of the psyche of a female serial killer … hopscotch across the U.S. and the Pacific on a terrifying paper chase that exposes financial fraud, high seas piracy, sex-trafficking, and murder … take a journey into the desolate future where corporations have eliminated government to rule over a rapidly dying world … go for a second opinion after learning a money-hungry cardiologist may be involved in illicit and deadly medical practices.


Fertility counselor Zondra Vesey is on a mission, a noble mission.

For ten long years she dedicated herself to help make one man the star specialist in the highly competitive field of infertility treatment. Her thanks? Woman after woman now sleeps in his bed, fills his life—as she once did.

Instead of loving her, his surgeon’s hands sliced her open, mutilated her insides, and left her sterile, as barren as the women who flock to him for the miracle of motherhood.

Zondra is angry, grief-stricken, and filled with sorrow—a deadly mission burn s deep within her. She will, she must save her sisters from similar suffering.


How far would you go to retrieve a quarter-million dollars?

Investigative journalists Paige and Max Alper drop everything and hopscotch from San Francisco to San Diego to New York to Hong Kong to take up the paper chase.

Along the way they are pursued, trapped, stripped naked, kidnapped, and set afire. A supposedly simple treasure hunt turns into an international adventure involving piracy, white slavery, kidnapping, and murder.

They end up with a lot more than the original $250,000 inheritance from Paige’s sea captain uncle, the black sheep of the family.


In this terrorizing sequel to The Organ Harvesters, the bloodless war of 2020 has destroyed all governments and left monster corporations in control globally, unhindered to waste the planet’s natural resources, and to manipulate the world’s population with iron-handed control.

There’s one last chance to save life on Planet Earth—roaming at large under a death warrant, Dr. Zoe Hidalga leaves behind both her daughter and her lover, mystic Asher Wind Storm, to return to Sanfrancorp to join the Defys, an underground resistance group that has spread throughout the world during the past six years.

The time has come for redemption, a time to save the people and shut down The Organ Harvesters and end corporate domination.


In the sixth of the Lambs’ patented “not-for-the squeamish” medical thrillers featuring RN Gina Mazzio, Gina and long-time love Harry Lucke are deep into marriage plans when a particularly nasty murder intervenes—the bookkeeper in a doctor’s office has been raped and carved up.

Worst part? The carving occurred before the murder.

Gina soon discovers the same doctor is suspected of being involved in illicit and deadly medical practices, plus two or three hideous murders.

The doctor, aware that Gina is on to him, hires a vicious hit man to kill her … and Harry … and anyone else who gets in the way.

“Great mystery, good fun. Dry humor salted throughout the story. Second Hobbes mystery I’ve read and I enjoyed them both.” -Pete

Set in the Cotswolds, this is the next instalment in the adventures of Inspector Hobbes, Mrs Goodfellow and Dregs, as narrated by the still disaster-prone Andy Caplet. It is a rip roaring, funny and moving tale of Andy’s infatuation with a dangerously beautiful woman, starting off during investigations into sheep deaths and the mysterious disappearance of pheasants. These incidents appear to be connected to a rash of big cat sightings, and something horrible seems to be lurking in the woods.

Is Andy’s comedy romance cursed to be unsuccessful, or is the curse something much darker, something that will arouse his primeval terrors?

But when he recognizes the beautiful woman from the elevator—the one he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about for months—his best behavior is being held by a thread. Matt’s always sacrificed for his family, and nothing is more important than their happiness, but the more time he spends around Kennedy, the more he wonders if her supposed “right match” might just be the wrong brother.

But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she’s not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy?

Erin isn’t sure she can trust Drew with her heart, but she’ll need his help to track down the treasure. She heads into the New Mexico wilderness with her brainy best friend Camie and a feisty orange cat. The wilderness holds its own dangers, from wild animals to sudden storms. Plus, the sinister men hunting Erin are determined to follow her all the way to the treasure, no matter where the twisted trail leads. Erin won’t give up an important historical find without a fight, but is she ready to risk her life—and her heart?

Just how far will Erin go to find the treasure and discover what she’s really made of?

One thousand years in the future, humans no longer rule…

In the early twenty-first century, humanity marveled at its greatest creation: Artificial Intelligence. They never foresaw the consequences of such a creation, though…

Now, in a world where humans must meet specifications to continue living, a man named Caesar emerges. Different, both in thought and talent, Caesar somehow slipped through the genetic net meant to catch those like him.

Eyes are falling on Caesar now, though, and he can no longer hide. The Artificial Intelligence wants him dead, but others want him to lead their revolution…

Can one man stand against humanity’s greatest creation?
