Unbreak My Heart (Childhood Sweethearts Reunited)

Product Description

Andre Le Court first set eyes on Kate Frost when he was two and she was a babe in her mother's arms. He's twenty-five now, and he still remembers the moment perfectly, the moment Kate Frost slipped inside his heart.

His family owned a big hotel, her parents worked there. Andre's father spent years trying to separate his son from the daughter of the hired help. Eventually he grew desperate and sent Andre away to boarding school.

Nine years later, Kate turns up on the doorstep of Andre's prestigious hotel with the paparazzi at her heels and the six-week-old daughter of her celebrity ex in her arms. She has nowhere left to run except back to the place where she left her heart all those years ago.

Andre lost Kate once. He can't lose her again. But he has an image to maintain, a reputation as a successful businessman. A bohemian young woman with beads in her hair is not a suitable wife for him, so he tries to change her to fit into his world.

Kate still loves Andre and sees tantalizing glimpses of the boy she adored. But most of the time she hardly recognizes the powerful, successful man he's become, his lifestyle so like that of his despised father.

Can they forgive each other for the pain of the past, accept each other as they are now, and rediscover the childhood love that was snatched away from them?

In Broad Daylight (Crime Rant Classics)

In Broad Daylight (Crime Rant Classics)

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly:
Ken Rex McElroy terrorized the residents of several counties in northwestern Missouri for a score of years. He raped young girls and brutalized them after they went to live with him or even married him; he shot at least two men; he stole cattle and hogs, and burned down the houses of some who interfered with his criminal activities. Thanks to the expert efforts of his lawyer and the pro-defendant bias of state laws, he served no more than a few days in jail, the author shows. In 1981, sentenced for the shooting of a popular grocer and free on bail, he was killed by the men of Skidmore, the center of his felonies; they closed ranks against all attempts to identify those who had pulled the triggers. Written by a first-time author, this is an engrossing, credible examination of the way vigilante action can take over when the law appears to be powerless. BOMC and QPBC alternates.

The author:

Harry M. MacLean is a lawyer and writer living in Denver. In law, he has worked as a juvenile court magistrate, First Assistant Attorney General, associate professor of law, General Counsel of the Peace Corps, and labor arbitrator.

His first book, In Broad Daylight, won an Edgar for Best True Crime and was a New York Times bestseller for twelve weeks. The book was made into a movie of the same name, starring Brian Denehey, Cloris Leachman and Chris Cooper. The book tells the story of the reign of terror of Ken Rex McElroy, his killing at the hands of Skidmore, Missouri, residents, and the subsequent cover up of the killing.

His second book, Once Upon a Time: A True Story of Memory, Murder, and the Law, tells the story of the 1990 trial of George Franklin for the murder of Susan Nason 20 years earlier. Eileen Franklin, his daughter, claimed to recover a repressed memory of the murder. Franklin was convicted on nothing but her repressed memory. His conviction was subsequently overturned, as explained in an e-book version of the book. This book was selected as a Notable Book of the Year by the New York Times.

MacLean's third book is The past Is Never Dead, The Trial of James Ford Seal and Mississippi's Struggle for Redemption. It tells the story of Seale's trial for the murder of two black youths in southwest Mississippi in 1964. It explores Mississippi's struggle for redemption by bringing these elderly Klansmen to trial for racial murders in the 60s. The book was shortlisted for the Saroyan Prize, offered by Stanford University.

Digging Deep: A Writer Uncovers His Marriages

Digging Deep: A Writer Uncovers His Marriages

Product Description

Three Marriages-Three Divorces.
Did I Just Marry the Wrong Women?

Eleven years after my last divorce I moved to Boston at age 66, after a lifetime in California, to live platonically with a 23-year-old female college student. I still thought my marriages failed because I had married the wrong women--crazy women. Finally, I realized that I must have had some role in destroying these marriages. Encouraged by my roommate, I embark on a journey to uncover my role. My attitudes about marriage had been profoundly influenced by my place on the cusp between the moralistic generation of the 1930%u2019s and %u201840%u2019s and the next generation that embraced "sex, drugs and rock %u2018n roll" and greater independence and equality for women. I was also deeply troubled by my choice of a career that seemed only to help the rich get richer. These issues propelled me to avoid dealing with my marriages. My memoir is a story of these marriages and divorces and uncovering my role through intense introspection and the writing process.

Legwork (Casey Jones Mystery Series Book 1)

Legwork (Casey Jones Mystery Series Book 1)

Product Description

“Casey Jones joins the ranks of smart and gutsy heroines. The South will never be the same. Don't miss her." --Janet Evanovich

‘WE ENDED LUNCH CRABBIER THAN THE CAKES…’


So notes wisecracking detective Casey Jones, and you know right away you’re in good hands. Casey’s as beautiful, badass, big, and big-hearted a private eye as ever wrestled a perp to the ground. And don’t think she can't-- she mentions her 170 pounds of pulchritude every chance she gets and shows it off to expert advantage in numerous encounters both personal and professional.

First the professional—need we mention she’s tough as a Florida gator? Pick a fight with her at your peril. Next the personal. She’s the old-fashioned kind of private eye who can love with the best of them, but when it comes to lust she’s in a class by herself. Fortunately for the reader, she’s downright hilarious on the subject. (As well as almost all others.)

As the title itself attests, Katy Munger’s Casey is the direct descendant of Archie Goodwin, Rex Stout’s famous leg man, whom mystery fans will remember as perhaps the most accomplished wisecracker in all of detective fiction—until this doll came along, that is!

Though Casey’s riotous narration makes the whole series a laugh-a-minute to read, Munger herself usually has something deadly serious up her sleeve.LEGWORK’s about crooked politicians, crooked business deals, old grudges, ancient crimes, and everyone’s favorite, dysfunctional families. Set in the Raleigh area, it sports an Old South patina of patrician families gone rogue and murder behind the antebellum columns, all deriving from one of Casey’s “babysitting” jobs, this one for a politician with a corpse in her car. (Casey babysits--read “bodyguards”--because, due to a tiny prison sentence once upon a very bad husband, she doesn't actually have a private investigator license.)

But she’s got a PI to work for and wouldn't you know, he’s Munger’s wicked idea of who Nero Wolfe would be if he were a slob instead of a portly epicure. Both weigh a sixth of a ton, but instead of Chef Fritz’s fine repasts, Bobby D. dines on Little Debbie snack cakes, Hostess treats, and especially Krispy Kreme doughnuts, his favorite and Casey’s-- which you are guaranteed to crave by the time you get to “The End”.

LEGWORK (and the rest of this fine series) will appeal to fans of all female sleuth mysteries—private eyes like Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, Sara Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski, Laura Lippman’s Tess Monaghan, Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone, and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.

But let's not forget their tough and witty male antecedents—if you ever flipped over Philip Marlowe, Spenser, or of course, the immortal Wolfe and his buddy Archie, you’ll fall in love with their kid, Casey.

About Thrall

Welcome to Braedyn Murphy’s life. She’s a typical—if shy—sophomore navigating the slings and arrows of high school life with her two best friends, Royal and Cassie. Then a new boy, Lucas, moves into the house next door, and Braedyn finds herself falling in love for the first time.

But Braedyn’s normal life comes crashing down around her ears when she learns she’s a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons - and that she might play a critical role in an ancient war between the Sons of Adam and the Daughters of Lilith. Turns out the right answers aren’t always clear or easy. And as for “good” and “evil” – it all depends on how you choose to act.

Inspired by the ancient Mesopotamian myths of Lilith and her offspring, Thrall explores first love, strong friendships, and taking on adult responsibilities against the backdrop of powerful supernatural forces and life-and-death stakes.

Three hundred years after nuclear war destroyed most of the Earth, Southshaw exists as a lush oasis in a desolate, charred world steeped in radiation. The Ancients were able to keep out the mutants and preserve Southshaw's mountain valley, establishing a peaceful and thriving community built on faith and simplicity of life. Technology is forbidden, as the pursuit of knowledge is believed to have led to the nuclear apocalypse twelve generations ago. It is Semper's duty to manage the community and provide spiritual leadership to Southshaw's citizens.

Dane is in line to become the thirteenth Semper of Southshaw. On the eve of his sixteenth birthday, however, he finds that the ghost stories from his childhood and the frightening tales of mutants in the north are not just legends. But the legends are not entirely true, either. And suddenly he's faced with a choice he never expected to make: should he take his place as Semper, obeying his cruel uncle and twelve generations of Southshaw Truth, or should he follow his heart and risk exile and death to unearth the real truth? An exotic huntress, a mythical ghost-man, and a tailor's daughter hold the keys to his answer. And to the survival of Southshaw--and possibly all of humanity--itself.

Lost in Infinity

Lost in Infinity

Product Description

This book is not for everyone.

'Lost in Infinity' is a novel that many readers will find hard to define. In fact, it's much easier to list what it is most definitely not, than what it really is. It's not necessarily a tale of suspense or a thriller. It's not a mystery by normal standards. It's not inspirational, romantic or full of laughs. Depending upon your perspective and final take on the tale, it's not even entirely fiction.

This book is not for everyone. 'Lost in Infinity' is a novel intended for a very specific niche audience…

The author would have you believe this is a "psychological roller coaster wrapped in the factual memoir of a chronic insomniac suffering from apeirophobia (the fear of infinity)." He would go on to explain that the "novel unfolds the history of his life as he tries to unlock repressed memories through a near schizophrenic relationship with his own splintered subconscious." This is a clever ruse to suck in his niche audience. This book is not for everyone.

Influenced by Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut and Carlton Mellick III, the novel offers a unique look into the private confessions of a self-absorbed blogger on the precipice of a mental breakdown. The recurring theme of déjà vu leads you through the work giving glimpses of a dark past while offering anecdotes that eerily relate to most readers. Mixing in humor and satire with a confused childhood spent under the microscope of therapists keeps the mood light while he digs deeper into his past looking for the root of his problems. The narrator pulls back the curtain and reveals his dark inner turmoil as he fears a slow deliberate path toward schizophrenia. A repetition of events and recollections leads the reader through the twisted break the author fears while touching on life's everyday issues and questions. He delves into sleepless nights, stress, relationships and the pitfalls of education and careers while he openly offers opinions on religion, suicide, insomnia, depression and the meaning of life.

Many casual readers will be turned off by the jumping timeline. Some will be confused by the author's back and forth focus on his missing memories. The first person pseudo-oral narrative will leave others simply frustrated. The rest will grow sick of the author's defense mechanisms, most often hiding behind his pretentious recollections of growing up a childhood 'genius'. This book is not for everyone.

Now that you've been properly warned and many have moved on to their next light read…

'Lost in Infinity' is part social commentary, part psychological mystery and part diary. What begins as an egotistical journal from an overconfident, yet anti-social, bratty blogger slowly dissolves into the twisted chaos of a mind on the brink of collapse. The reader is eventually forced to decide if the book is a cry for help from a man attempting to rationalize his schizophrenia or a clever ruse to make them stop and contemplate the meaning of existence. 'Lost in Infinity' will leave the reader questioning everything they thought they knew about the author's sanity, about their own life, about existence and the infinite universe beyond.

Product Description

Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2012 Quarterfinalist

Dixon Azel loves sunshine, processed cheese, and network news. He drives a modest car and lives in a modest home. He is tall, good-looking, and has a charming smile. Dixon Azel is in imminent danger of going to hell.

As a demon soul broker in the employ of The Corporation—the business side of hell—he's hit a run of bad luck. The younger brokers say he's lost his touch, and the boss has given him an ultimatum: meet the quota by year-end, or go back to HQ for retraining.

There was a time when he would have no problem convincing ten lonely singles to trade a soul for the object of their desires. Dixon refuses to believe that time has passed.

Dixon's reputation is nearly restored when a scandal ensnares him, shaking his beliefs of good and evil in the corporate marketplace. Disillusioned and reckless, Dixon abandons a century of caution to pursue the final soul for his redemption: the unwinnable woman who challenges everything he knows.

He must choose whether to cling to the career he has mastered but hates, or risk all to explore the dangers of sleeping with the enemy.

A satirical Urban Fantasy set in the American Southwest, INFERNAL STOCK was written by a survivor of corporate bureaucracy. Full of dark humor, it is the tale of an affable guy working for a heartless corporation, where the CEO happens to be Satan.

A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health

A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health

Product Description

A Glimpse of Heaven features the ancient Bright Beautiful School of Thought, or Ming Chia, a philosophy that supports the theory that the quality of our lives would be greatly enhanced if we took True Responsibility for our own health and wellbeing. In order to begin enjoying the blessings of True Health, Dr. Glen Hepker says it is important to initiate ownership of the notion of the True Responsibility of Healthful Interaction - displaying dignity, decency, goodness, and grace in our daily interaction with others, and figuring out how to truly mean it, No Matter What. He emphasizes the importance of Acting Without Acting - doing the right thing for the right sake without the need for selfish recognition, and examines the Same Boat Theory, which sets forth that the primary fault of humankind is the notion that you are there and I am here. Outlining the benefits of the Bright Beautiful School of Thought, the author guides readers down the path toward True Appreciation of the Miracle of the Moment - realizing glimpses of heaven…learning how to gather deep objective insight congruent with loving spine-tingling bioelectric sensations AT WILL. This is a true skill that can be mastered while curtailing the pernicious weight of habitual cyclical thinking. In A Glimpse of Heaven, the author's words modestly depict a beautiful, altruistic, benevolent, and well-rounded health and wellness philosophical way-of-life - while conveying a powerful message whose purpose is to assist in making the world a better place.

November Surprise: A Lucy Bricker Novel

November Surprise: A Lucy Bricker Novel

Product Description

•Twenty years
•Six presidential elections
•One consuming love affair

For Lucy Jones, the distinction between love and politics is hazy at best. Both can be all-consuming, and either can lead to a heart-breaking loss or an exhilarating win. Whatever the case, if you’re seen as a loser, you probably are one. Lucy first learns this lesson in 1988, when she’s a shy girl, battling a high school bully and rooting for Dukakis. Through the years Lucy will experience stunning victories and agonizing defeats as she makes the choices that define her. Meanwhile, she also struggles to define her relationship with Monty, who comes in and out of her life like the changes in public opinion. Is Monty simply a one-night stand, a kindred spirit, or the love of her life? And by 2008, can he offer her a change to believe in?

Over the course of twenty years and six presidential elections, Lucy grows and adjusts with the times. Filled with snarky political and pop-culture references, November Surprise is about the journey we take to believe in a candidate, in love, and in ourselves.

November Surprise is a companion piece to Campaign Promises, which is free on Amazon. They can be read in either order. Both have a liberal slant.

Everburn

Everburn

Product Description

“The city wasn’t attacked, Oliver.”
“What?”
“Look out at the guardhouses on each point. Neither one is damaged. How could an attack have come from the sea without damaging those? And where are the attacking ships and soldiers?”
“Not sure, I guess. There are clear signs of fighting, though, and no signs of meteors. Someone was here.”
Ponce grabbed a burlap sack that had lost nearly all its grain on the ground and held it up. “But who attacks and takes no spoils and causes no casualties? You think the city could have staged it?” That sounded stupid the second it came out of his mouth. “Let’s follow the trail.”
The damage path turned southeast from the pier and up the defensive hill but didn’t break through the outer wall, so they had to go back up through the city gate to follow it.
...
The market square shared the eastern part of its district with a chapel. The chapel had a huge grassy courtyard in front of it, and in the center of that courtyard stood a lone tree that was always burning. Ponce had never had the chance to get close to the tree or the chapel; both were supposedly bewitched and were heavily patrolled at all times. It sat on the head of his curiosity like a crown. The trail passed through the south edge of the market and ended at this tree. The crackling fire seemed to drown out a nearby guard's angry murmurs.
“Look at that, Oliver . . . the trail stops in front of the only thing in town more mysterious than the trail itself.”
The city of Arkis stands on the precipice of rebirth and destruction along with all of Lencia. Its greatest hope for survival is Ponce, a city architect, inventor, and unfettered young man whose soul is in constant search of greater possibilities. He has spent his entire life trying to figure out what’s really going on in the world, and when the is city mysteriously attacked and the path leads directly to the mysterious tree burning perpetually at its center, Ponce is pushed to the limit—and he escapes.

Ponce is thrust into the center of an ancient wager between the same cosmic leaders—Sotare and Perfidious, good versus evil—who hold Lencia’s future in their hands. Through redemption and love, Sotare uses Ponce to try and heal a broken world while Perfidious uses him to destroy it. The love of a woman sent to tempt Ponce will determine the victor and restore—or destroy—Everburn.

More C.S. Lewis than J.R.R. Tolkien, Bunch’s debut is a sweeping epic that strips bare the dangers of conformity and reminds us all that great things can be accomplished with nothing more than devoted friends and unflagging perseverance. His multi-layered allegory has a mythological complexity rarely seen in the fantasy genre, looking far beyond the physical world to expose universal, underlying truths as razor sharp dialogue and well-developed characters drive this rich, detailed world toward its ultimate date with destiny. A riveting journey full of danger, intrigue, and almost unbearable tension, Everburn signals the arrival of an important new voice in the world of fantasy.
