Beyond Nostalgia

Beyond Nostalgia

Product Description

Praised as a monumental romance, a Gone with the Wind for the 20th Century, Beyond Nostalgia is an unforgettable love story that shows us what it is like to love and be loved so intensely that life can never be the same again.

New York teenagers Dean Cassidy and Theresa Wayman live in a world of hard concrete, dark bricks and tough breaks. They both come from dysfunctional families at the bottom rungs of the social ladder, where happiness never comes easy. Theresa's father was shot dead at a bank robbery a few years ago. Dean's father is alive, but he has a mean temper and a nasty tongue that constantly cuts into the heart of his family. And as if all that isn't enough to deal with, Dean's mother is a paranoid schizophrenic and Theresa's is a hardcore alcoholic.

But on a cold, damp night in the spring of 1967, things suddenly look up for the underprivileged kids. It seems fate is finally in a benevolent mood when the free-spirited Dean and downright gorgeous Theresa meet at a high school dance. From there things only get better.

For the next year the youths, who've always been knocked around, bring the light of hope into each other's hearts. Together they manage to beat back all the negativity that keeps coming at them, and they have the time of their lives.

Unfortunately, though, fate is an unpredictable force. And when Dean's better judgement lapses, just one time, the mistake he makes causes Theresa to be pulled from his arms. After that the years slip away and the two lovers push on with their lives the best they can. They both get married, and Dean has two lovely kids, but the sun never sets on a day that they don't think of one another.

Is it possible that destiny might reunite Dean and Theresa someday? If it does, what would the consequences be for them and their families? If it doesn't, could they ever be truly happy again?

American Sailor Kurt Reid is a hothead and a hard case—a man who hits first and asks questions later. As scrappy and rough around the edges as Jimmy Cagney, it’s no wonder that when the ship’s captain turns up dead, it’s Reid who takes the rap.
Falsely accused and under the gun, Reid jumps ship and vanishes into Shanghai —only to get caught in a web of intrigue, betrayal, and murder. In a world where nothing is what it seems and everything is for sale, he’s soon out of his depth, drawn into a spy game in which the winner takes all . . . and the loser takes a knife to the back.
Will Reid live up to his reputation as the Spy Killer? He’ll have to learn the rules fast, because with players like the sexy White Russian secret agent, Varinka Savischna, in the hunt, the game is about to turn as seductive as it is sinister.
As a young man, Hubbard visited pre-Communist China three times, where his closest friend headed up British intelligence.  In a land where communists, nationalists, war lords and foreign adventurers schemed for control, Hubbard gained a unique insight into the intelligence operations and spy-craft in the region—a knowledge that informs stories like Spy Killer.

Product Description

At six feet tall, Emily Lucas towers over the "normals" in her Seattle high school. When she discovers, thanks to a pediatric endocrinologist and his X-ray machine, she’s still growing and will likely hit six foot three, she struggles with her inability to blend.

Emily blames her MIA, giantess mother, Marilyn, for her excessive height and embarks on a mom-quest to find her. So begins a journey that leads Emily to Arizona to meet her birth mother.

Then there's Emily's ex-best-friend-gone-wild, Trix. She has an attitude that won’t quit, two non-parents who don’t take care of her as much as she takes care of them, and a tendency to hook up with too many guys in her search for acceptance.

When she finds out she has a chance to graduate early and study her passion–fashion design–at The Art Institute, she realizes she needs to pull herself out of her downward spiral and focus on her goal. But she might already be too far gone.

Emily and Trix, who have grown apart but whose lives still wind around each other like helices, work separately to figure out how to fit into a world that doesn't much like girls who can't, or won't, conform to what's ordinary.

Hollow Strength

Hollow Strength

Product Description

WILL THERE BE WAR BETWEEN THE US AND IRAN?

June, 2014. The world is shocked as Iran's newest and most powerful destroyer, the Shaheed, explodes and sinks on its maiden voyage, killing a full cadre of VIPs, including a dozen of the most powerful clerics in Iran. The ship's executive officer, Commander Mohsen Saeed of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, ashore during the explosion, frantically works to uncover the truth behind the sinking of his ship. Unfortunately for Saeed, learning that truth puts him and his family in grave danger; he is targeted by death squads who want him to carry the secrets he has unearthed to his grave. Meanwhile, accusations of blame for the sinking of the Shaheed bring the US and Iran to the brink of war. As the net of pursuit draws ever closer, CIA officers Joe Cerrato and Cynthia Banks struggle to get Saeed and his family out of Iran before they are caught and executed in cold blood. Full of authentic detail from an author who has served as a field officer in the Directorate of Operations of the CIA, Hollow Strength serves up a compelling picture of the Iran of tomorrow, and the perils of real world espionage operations.

Douglas Frantz, author of the bestselling "Nuclear Jihadist," and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee describes Hollow Strength with just two words:

"Eerily accurate."

Jeff Stein, author of “ A Murder in a Time of War," veteran Washington Post journalist and “Spy Talk” blogger, says:

“Art Keller has definitely been there, done that. As a former CIA operative in the agency division responsible for tracking black market nuclear weapons, he has seen enough to make his hair stand up straight permanently, and in "Hollow Strength" he'll make yours stand up, too.”

JM Le Duc of Suspense Magazine writes:

"In 'Hollow Strength,' Art Keller accomplishes two things: he tells a great story from the mind of one who has been in the ‘business,’ and he has an uncanny knack of letting his reader know what Iranian culture is truly like. The story begins with the sinking of an Iranian naval vessel by its own government and the captain who figures out the plan. “Hollow Strength” centers on the proud Iranian Naval officer who realizes he is being used as a pawn by the Iranian government and his attempt to bring his family to the United States and the two American agents who devise an intricate plan to try and help him.
There is a lot of background information in the beginning, but once the action begins it is non-stop. It is a heart-throbbing thriller that will keep you glued to the page. If you enjoy espionage and are into the U.S./Iranian political tug of war, Art Keller’s “Hollow Strength” is a no brainer. You will love it."

Deathscape (Broslin Creek Book 2)

Deathscape (Broslin Creek Book 2)

Product Description

#1 Amazon Romantic Suspense Bestseller!

When artist Ashley Price finds Detective Jack Sullivan buried alive on her farm and rescues him, she doesn't expect gratitude. But she also doesn't expect him to accuse her of being in league with the serial killer who put him in the grave. Focused on raising her young daughter, Ashley wants nothing to do with Jack.

Hell-bent on an old vendetta, Jack is prepared to ignore the sizzling attraction between them. He's not going to fall in love with a suspect! Except, the more time he spends with her, the more he falls under her spell. But can he trust her, or is he walking into another deadly trap?

"A delightfully chilling suspense tale." (Night Owl Reviews)

EXCERPT:

Jack didn't understand her, and he didn't like what he couldn't understand. She couldn't be pinned down, could not be classified. Probably the very reason why she was getting under his skin every possible way.

He'd even dreamed about her. Naked dreams. Just the thought gave a tug at his groin. Hell, the only thing he knew about her for sure was that his body, very inconveniently, lusted after hers.

He walked out to the road and drove up to her house, even if he hadn't intended to visit Ashley tonight. The last time had been plenty enough, watching her paint, watching her fight against her jumble of emotions that had threatened to pull him in.

Her downstairs lights were on but not the upstairs. He leaned the new shovel he'd bought next to her old broken one, then ran up the steps and rang the doorbell.

A few seconds passed before the key turned in the lock and the door cracked open a few inches.

"Unless you have an arrest warrant, go away." The dark circles around her eyes said she hadn't seen much sleep last night. She wore black slacks made of some soft material that clung to her long legs, and a long-sleeved fitted cotton shirt that showed off her curves.

Predictably, his body responded. The irony that he kept coming back to her like a lover in the night didn't escape him. He watched her for a long minute before words he hadn't meant to say came out of his mouth. "Let's say I believe you."

She still hesitated a long second before she finally stepped back to let him in.

She looked all alone and vulnerable and completely lost. And completely hot, regardless. She had barely a touch of makeup on, the simple black slacks and cotton shirt she wore hardly seductive. Her body didn't need enhancement—all curves and mile-long legs. She was a knockout, pretty much. The sight of her certainly knocked him back a pace every time he looked at her. But something deeper than her physical attributes drew him now, and he got his first inkling that he might be in trouble.

He needed to say good night here and go about his business.

Her gaze came up, her eyes wide-that impossible shade of green that haunted his dreams. She blinked hard, fighting to be strong. But underneath it all, she was broken still on so many levels.

He didn't think at all before he stepped all the way up to her. His arms went around her, and he pulled her closer, tucked her against him. Every inch where they touched, his body came alive.

For a split second, as she leaned into the offered comfort, instant lust cut through him, the urge to have her mixing with the urge to protect her. But, before he could have done something stupid, she pulled away.

They stared at each other for a moment.

She's going to be a complication, he thought, not for the first time.

"I shouldn't have- This isn't why I came. I came-" He had no idea how to finish that sentence, so it was a good thing she cut him off.

"To soften me up and see if I spill something?"


"Spine-chilling suspense that will leave you on the edge of your seat." (The Romance Reviews)

But I have come to learn that life happens independent from what we want."

The Purples

The Purples

Product Description

*An Amazon Breakthrough Novel Semifinalist*

“If you believe the papers, we sprang from thin air in 1924. At the time, people started turning up dead in Detroit—which was nothing new, even back then. But when twenty Jewish men get put on the spot in three days, it gets noticed. They blamed it on us, but the truth is not one of those crimes was committed by the Purples. Technically speaking.”

Shunned by his community... locked up for trying to help an innocent girl... ambushed by rivals and left for dead in the Detroit River: Joe Bernstein has a few scores to settle, and a bold plan to seize control of the Motor City in its booming 1920s heyday. With his faithful “agent” Abie, his brilliant but fragile brother Max, and an out-of-control enforcer named Grabowski (not to mention a couple of carnivorous creatures known as "the babies"), Bernstein gives rise to the infamous Purple Gang—so named by local merchants because the gang's members were said to be "tainted, like spoiled meat."
Bernstein's boys set their sights on taking over the Detroit River, the pipeline connecting dry America to wet Canada. But Joe also must contend with having “a sweetheart in the nut house” and rising tensions within his gang. Worst of all, the D.A.”s office has brought in an amputee war hero named Riley—who seems to be one step ahead of Joe”s big plans.
A fast-paced thriller that builds to the climactic Collingwood Massacre (a seminal event that changed Detroit forever), THE PURPLES blends richly-detailed historical fiction with nonstop action, all narrated in the wry voice of the smart, self-deluding, and unforgettable Joe Bernstein.
“Corruption in 1920s Detroit is brought to life in vivid detail in this accomplished book.” —Publishers Weekly
“Fast-moving and funny, The Purples has a hard edge, a soft heart, and an original voice.” —Michael Balkind, Sudden Death

W. K. Berger is an award-winning journalist and author whose work has been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, and Esquire. His books have been published internationally by Penguin and Random House.

Amazon.com Review

Excellent writing but there are cautions when writing about real criminals and a real gang that existed in the 1920's so personally I would like it better if researched and the story nonfiction. However, if like some crime history, enough facts are not available, this fictional twist could be very informative.

This is fairly strong. There's enough in the excerpt to pull the reader in and want to get more. There's not quite enough to get complete buy-in but that may well be achieved in the next few chapters. It's original and enticing.

Product Description

*An Amazon Breakthrough Novel Semifinalist*

“If you believe the papers, we sprang from thin air in 1924. At the time, people started turning up dead in Detroit—which was nothing new, even back then. But when twenty Jewish men get put on the spot in three days, it gets noticed. They blamed it on us, but the truth is not one of those crimes was committed by the Purples. Technically speaking.”

Shunned by his community... locked up for trying to help an innocent girl... ambushed by rivals and left for dead in the Detroit River: Joe Bernstein has a few scores to settle, and a bold plan to seize control of the Motor City in its booming 1920s heyday. With his faithful “agent” Abie, his brilliant but fragile brother Max, and an out-of-control enforcer named Grabowski (not to mention a couple of carnivorous creatures known as "the babies"), Bernstein gives rise to the infamous Purple Gang—so named by local merchants because the gang's members were said to be "tainted, like spoiled meat."
Bernstein's boys set their sights on taking over the Detroit River, the pipeline connecting dry America to wet Canada. But Joe also must contend with having “a sweetheart in the nut house” and rising tensions within his gang. Worst of all, the D.A.”s office has brought in an amputee war hero named Riley—who seems to be one step ahead of Joe”s big plans.
A fast-paced thriller that builds to the climactic Collingwood Massacre (a seminal event that changed Detroit forever), THE PURPLES blends richly-detailed historical fiction with nonstop action, all narrated in the wry voice of the smart, self-deluding, and unforgettable Joe Bernstein.
“Corruption in 1920s Detroit is brought to life in vivid detail in this accomplished book.” —Publishers Weekly
“Fast-moving and funny, The Purples has a hard edge, a soft heart, and an original voice.” —Michael Balkind, Sudden Death
