Blond Cargo
by John Lansing

"A pulse-pounding thriller with a charming protagonist" (Kirkus Reviews), this gripping ebook continues the story that began in The Devil’s Necktie.

Jack Bertolino’s son, Chris, was the victim of a brutal murder attempt and Vincent Cardona, a mafia boss, provided information that helped Jack take down the perpetrator of the crime. Jack accepted the favor knowing there’d be blowback. In Blond Cargo the mobster’s daughter has gone missing and Cardona turned in his chit. Jack discovers that the young, blond, mafia princess has been kidnapped and imprisoned while rich, politically connected men negotiate her value as a sex slave.

A sizzling whodunit for fans of James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell, Blond Cargo taps into the real-life crime world to deliver a thrilling, action-packed story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the explosive, unprecedented finale.

Farewell to Goodbye
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionBook #1 of the Never Say Goodbye Series

Sometimes goodbye is not forever…

It’s been seven years since Melanie Rhodes was brutally attacked by a deranged serial killer. Now, sheriff of the sleepy little village of Spring Haven, Michigan, things are good. The worst crimes she has to deal with are kids partying on vacant property and the occasional domestic dispute.

Even when a woman’s body is found in the woods, she thinks she has a straight forward murder case on her hands. But when the second body is discovered she makes a startling connection between the two dead women. Both were attacked by serial killers in their past and both had lived to tell about it. Fearing the worst, she prepares to call in the FBI for help but before she can, her fears are confirmed. Another young woman’s body is found by a fisherman, and she too had been attacked by a serial killer in the past.

The FBI sends in Trevor Giles, their best monster hunter and a man from Mel’s terrifying past. As the bodies begin to pile up Mel and Trevor must learn to put the past behind them in order to work together to find the killer. And together they will have to use both conventional and unconventional means to unravel the mystery. Mel will have to dip into a talent she has vowed never to use again. She will have to “connect” to the killer’s mind in order to find him. Time is running out and the killer’s intentions are clear. The ultimate prize must be claimed: Sheriff Melanie Rhodes herself.


Thunder Rising
by
Robert Shaw

DescriptionBrutalized and left for dead, her daughters kidnapped to be sold, Emeline Bransford kills nine men to take her children back. Now they are on the run, beyond the Frontier and alone on the trail west. When a meteorite falls from the sky and unleashes a creature the likes of which have never been seen before, Emeline and her daughters must join forces with Lone Eagle and his courageous people to fight the beast. In Thunder Rising, Robert Shaw has created a different kind of western, a tour-de-force of action and adventure set in an indeterminate past, with sci-fi overtones and featuring one of the toughest female leads readers will ever meet.

A Suitable Wife
by
Carol Burnside

DescriptionSam Moreland is desperate to keep his daughter out of the clutches of her abusive mother seeking custody. He resists legal advice to provide the court with a complete family unit because past relationships have soured him on love.

Though she yearns for children, Rosie Baxter knows a failed pregnancy has likely left her barren. She remains single rather than bring her problems into a marriage and concentrates on her business with its financial woes.

A temporary marriage pact means Rosie provides Sam with the illusion of family in return for an influx of cash into her store. But kisses for show become all too real. When outside threats shake their growing bond, each must trust the other with their darkest secret or lose their best chance for love and happiness.

Riptide
by
Amber Lea Easton

Distraction arrives via sexy screenwriter Noah Reynolds. His take-me-to-bed looks mask a past ripe with scandal.

Trail of 32
by
Paul Rega

DescriptionTHE ASTONISHING TRUE STORY of a group of thirty-two boys and leaders who accomplished an amazing feat in 1972, when they rode their bicycles from Wood Dale, Illinois to Jacksonville, Florida.

An innocence was lost when twenty-six young boys in a small rural town set out to accomplish something bigger than themselves.

Wild
by
Cheryl Strayed

DescriptionAt twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
