A funny, hot tale of a young woman in search of love.

Young, beautiful, and voluptuous, the Baroness finds that in Beardley Manor innocent flirtations can become hot escapades.
And soon Lady Chloe’s diary pages are filled with her adventures—and misadventures!

Rooms: a novel

It was just a letter. Cryptic, yes absolutely. But Seattle software tycoon Micah Taylor can’t get it out of his mind—the claim that a home was built for him by a great uncle he never knew, on the Oregon coast. In Cannon Beach. The one place he loves. The one place he never wants to see again.

Micah heads to Cannon Beach to sell the house and keep his past buried, but the nine thousand square-foot home instantly feels like it’s part of him.

Then he meets Sarah Sabin at the local ice cream shop … maybe Cannon Beach can be the perfect weekend getaway.

But strange things start happening in the house. Things Micah can’t explain. Things he can barely believe. All the locals will say is the house is “spiritual.” Unsettling since Micah’s faith slipped away like the tide years ago.

Ricochet

I felt detached from reality. Like we were spinning through space and nothing existed outside of ourselves. This was really, really dangerous. I couldn’t stop now. Every touch made me spiral faster, sink deeper. He already felt like a vital part of me, like I couldn’t remember what my life was like before him. There was no turning back.
“I love you so much, Lilly. It’s almost painful, it aches,” he breathed.
“That’s what love actually feels like, I think. When all the butterflies fly away and it feels like your heart is slowly breaking but you don’t want it to stop,” I whispered. I used to be unsure what exactly love felt like. But now I’m certain. It’s this. It feels like this. It’s dark, and it’s heavy, and it eats you alive.

The Hunter Killers: The Extraordinary Story of the First Wild Weasels, the Band of Maverick Aviators Who Flew the Most Dangerous Missions of the Vietnam War

At the height of the Cold War, America’s most elite aviators bravely volunteered for a covert program aimed at eliminating an impossible new threat. Half never returned. All became legends. From New York Times bestselling author Dan Hampton comes one of the most extraordinary untold stories of aviation history.

Vietnam, 1965: On July 24 a USAF F-4 Phantom jet was suddenly blown from the sky by a mysterious and lethal weapon—a Soviet SA-2 surface-to-air missile (SAM), launched by Russian “advisors” to North Vietnam. Three days later, six F-105 Thunderchiefs were brought down trying to avenge the Phantom. More tragic losses followed, establishing the enemy’s SAMs as the deadliest anti-aircraft threat in history and dramatically turning the tables of Cold War air superiority in favor of Soviet technology.

Stunned and desperately searching for answers, the Pentagon ordered a top secret program called Wild Weasel I to counter the SAM problem—fast.
