Bestselling author Addison Moore tops today’s Buffet with Burning Through Gravity, her coming-of-age romance. One reviewer called it “a wicked, heated chase to the truth. Deception, lies, and scheming abound, with layers upon layers of shocks and twists. From its first page to its last, it’s an emotion packed ride.”

Addison writes contemporary and paranormal romance. Previously she worked as a therapist on a locked psychiatric unit for nearly a decade. She resides on the West Coast with her husband, four wonderful children and two dogs where she eats too much chocolate and stays up way too late. When she’s not writing, she’s reading.

Burning Through Gravity

Two beautiful souls. Two seemingly innocent deceptions.

Once they meet, Stevie and Ford explode into one another in a ball of lust, hotter than a July moon. Ford is assertive, dominate and in control, that is until Stevie brings him to his knees. He thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met both inside and out. Stevie thinks he’s sweet, and sort of goofy—of course it doesn’t hurt that he drips sex like honey.

Stevie is starting to fall hard for Ford. And Ford is all in with Stevie. She wonders if he could ever forgive her for what she’s about to do. She wonders if she wants him to.

They say love conquers all. But love never met two liars like Stevie and Ford.

His lie cost her a few sleepless nights. Her lie will cost him everything.

But a man’s got to make a living, and backing off is not in his DNA. Traversing the snowy alpine winter in the Sierras and the lonely deserts of Nevada, Reno must revert to his old ways to survive.

The City and the Stars (Arthur C. Clarke Collection: Vanamonde)

 Science Fiction > Dystopian

The City and the Stars (Arthur C. Clarke Collection: Vanamonde)

A billion years into the future, Earth’s oceans have evaporated-and humanity has all but vanished. The inhabitants of the City of Diaspar believe theirs is the last city-but there is no way to find out for sure. The city is completely closed off by a high wall, and nobody has left in millions of years.

The last child born in the city in millions of years, Alvin is insatiably curious about the outside world. He embarks on a quest that leads him to discover the truth about the city and humanity’s history-as well as its future.

The City and the Stars is a rewrite of Clarke’s first novel, Against the Fall of Night. While the author assumed that the old version would be replaced by the new version and eventually go out of print, he was surprised to find that the older version was popular enough to stay in wide circulation. Today, both stories are equally popular.

Any fan of Clarke’s would find this book a fascinating read, not just for the intriguing story and Clarke’s singular futuristic vision, but also for the purpose of comparing his approach to the same story at different points in his writing career. While The City and the Stars shares the general plot of Against the Fall of Night, many details are different-making an interesting study of Clarke’s progression as a writer.

HUNTER: A Thriller (Dylan Hunter Thrillers Book 1)

   Two people, passionately in love.
   But each hides a deadly secret.
   He is a crusading vigilante, on a violent quest for justice.
   She is tracking this unknown assassin, sworn to stop him.
   Neither realizes the truth about the other.
   And neither knows that a terrifying predator is hunting them both. . . .

From its first gripping pages, HUNTER takes you on a nonstop thrill ride: from the top floor of the CIA, to the marbled corridors of Capitol Hill…from the posh hotels of downtown Washington, to the city’s mean, violent streets. It introduces a colorful new hero for our time–and a dazzling heroine every bit his equal.

A spy mystery…a crime thriller…a passionate romance: HUNTER is a genre-bending novel unlike any you’ve read. Deviously plotted, filled with vivid characters, and propelled at a breakneck pace, it’s a tale as memorable for its provocative ideas as for a rousing climax that has readers cheering.
