Friendship of Desire
by Ann Pratley

Painful Deliverance Book 3

Tom and Samantha. Feisty friends from childhood who feel like they know each other inside out, until the day comes when one of them suggests they go to a BDSM club together, and become formal play partners. Pushing the limits of what each of them can individually stand in their lifelong friendship, they attract and repel like magnets, until the time comes when they must choose how they will relate to one another - and what kind of relationship they will go on to have in the future.

Whilst on this journey of discovery, the two of them meet and make a new friend - Alexis. A young woman with a hidden and secretive past, and a mystery surrounding the relationship she has - or has had - with a renowned business entrepreneur who begins to integrate himself into Samantha's life, unknown to any of them whether he has done it for him, or for her … or for Alexis, being the mysterious link from his past.

Beneath African Skies
by
Gillie Bowen

DescriptionBeneath African Skies is based on the true story of the siblings' young lives in 20th century Africa: hyena, crocodile and cobra attacks, gold rush mania, crater plunges, near-fatal accidents, typhoid fever and murder are just some of the ordeals they must face. It is the story of coping with death and the horrors of the Second World War: both as an RAF fighter pilot and as a pregnant and lonely bride in war-time Britain. Above all, it is the story of their survival and their love for each other.

The Perfect Day
by

Friedman learns of The Perfect Day, a plot to strike terror into the hearts of Americans by a zealot known only as Ali the Sand Viper. Friedman must solve the murders and do what he can to prevent the unthinkable, a terrorist assault on the tourism capital of the world.

But to find out, Maya must decide to leave the ones who love her most.

The Devil's Path

Richard Turner

At the request of President Lincoln, Scott must do everything in his power to find a missing Confederate professor who has disappeared under suspicious circumstances.

Mansfield Lark
by
Katie Oliver

DescriptionGemma Astley has succeeded where so many others have failed. She has somehow managed to tame tearaway rock star Dominic Heath and stop his womanising ways for good. But just as they find happiness, Dominic’s secret aristocratic past becomes public knowledge, and jeopardises everything.

Angel of Death
by
James Paddock

DescriptionCJ and Stella are to be married in eight days. Yes, finally, they are doing the deed. They’ve been declining new, involved cases (Stella is now a licensed P.I.) in preparation for the honeymoon to New Zealand, but the call from Parker DuPont in St. Petersburg, Florida has them on a private jet and then settled into a luxury stateroom aboard the French super yacht, Angel of Paradise. They have their own steward who calls them monsieur and mademoiselle. Their client, and yacht owner, billionaire Édouard Philippe Monnier, is paying three times the going rate to prove that his son, one of two 23 year-old identical twins, did not commit suicide, as the medical examiner has determined.

Dark Water
by
Jan Ruth

DescriptionPart Two of Wild Water

The tragedy and comedy that is Jack's life; is there a future for him and Anna, or is the past too destructive?

Jack Redman, estate agent to the Cheshire set and skilled juggler of complex relationships. Someone to break all the rules, or an unlikely hero?

In this sequel to Wild Water Jack and Anna return to discover that history repeats itself. Anna's long-awaited success as a serious artist is poised to happen, but her joy, along with her relationship with Jack, is threatened by old scores.

Simon Banks is a depressed and unstable man with a plan. He wants to wipe out his past by buying a brighter future, but Jack Redman stands in his way.

Will Jack ever escape the legacy of lies and deceit left by his ex-wife? Can Jack and Anna hold it all together, or will tragic repercussions from Jack's past blow them apart forever?

Jaffareadstoo (top 500 Amazon reviewer): 'There is never a lull in the narrative, the plot is allowed to evolve beautifully, and there some really lovely, light moments which offset the darker elements of the story. All too often sequels can become a bit of damp squib with less on offer than what has gone before, but rest assured that this is not the case with Dark Water.'

DescriptionA Samantha Jamison Mystery Book 3

★★★★★ EDITED BY AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR & EDITOR, WINSLOW ELIOT

SERIES: #1 THE PUZZLE is (FREE) #2 WITHOUT ANY WARNNG #3, 86 AVENUE DU GOULET #4 A LETHAL TIME #5 MOUTH OF THE RAT #6 DEATH KNELL IN THE ALPS #7 NO HOPE IN NEW HOPE & MEMOIR:THE RIVIERA IS BURNING

REVIEWERS:
"original style" "protagonist talks turns around and talks to the reader."
"You come away feeling like you know the people in her books personally."
“This 3rd novel by Peggy Edelheit is like the first 2, hard to put down!”
“I like the twists and turns in the plots. The characters are fun and believable.”
"I have read everyone of her books and love them all.”
“The villain's identity was a well-kept secret until the end.”
"The third Samantha Jamison Mystery is a fast-moving, unpredictable, totally enjoyable novel.”
"Never saw the end coming! I can't wait for the next adventure!”

***In between writing novels all I wanted was to visit my friend, Martine, enjoy the sun, the Mediterranean and the French Riviera. But then Martine insisted I come sooner to help her, saying she'd explain in more detail once I arrived. Strange things were going on in the mysterious gardens of 86 Avenue du Goulet next door. I agreed. But once there after renting this empty villa, I became ensnared in a deadly maze of misdirection, hostility, lies and a history of buried secrets and intrigue: a French gardener, a cat lady and the mysterious house of red light.

Backlash
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionOlivia isn’t like other girls. Olivia can do things. She can stop a man’s heart with the touch of her finger. But being different comes at a price. Locked away in a remote government funded facility Olivia dreams of having her freedom. Of living outside the fence surrounding the facility. Of having a life. But these dreams, she knows, can never become reality. Unless she’s willing to kill.

Oliver isn’t like other boys. Oliver can do things. Or, should we say, he can make other people do things. Like his twin sister Olivia, he is locked away from society. It is much too dangerous to have him outside of the walls of the facility in which he lives. He dreams much the same as his sister, of living on the outside. He dreams of all the things he could make people do. All the terrible things. But to get out he will need Olivia to help him. And so far she’s resisted him. But he knows all he needs is one little chance. Just one little chance. Because unlike Olivia, he is more than willing to kill to get what he wants.

Lillian Stone lives by one simple rule. Never love someone. Because they will only wind up dead. She knows this from bitter experience. You see, Lillian isn’t like other women. Sticking to the rule has been easy for her over the last ten years. But one dog and one lightning strike will alter the course of her life forever.

Roen Cutler finds Lilly standing on her back deck in the pouring rain with lighting striking all around her. He wonders if she’s lost her mind. Fear for her draws him to her. And one touch will alter the course of his life as well.
