Backlash
by Penny Childs

Olivia 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.

Unreasonable Persuasion
by
Neil Low

Description1940--In the dark misty streets of Seattle, there are no vacations from crime. Alan Stewart finds himself paired once again with the beautiful and dangerous Vera Deward and embroiled in a mystery that's shaking the entire city. This time, a well-known and aging heiress has disappeared. Has she simply departed early for a glamorous honeymoon, taking the train to Minnesota, as her much younger and newly acquired husband insists, or has there been foul play? Alan Stewart and Vera Deward race against the clock, tracking murder suspects through the murky cityscape looking for clues to the heiress's whereabouts. Clues that lead to shady hotels, underground catacombs in Seattle's Chinatown, and to heart-pounding confrontations on fast-moving trains. Can Alan and Vera unwind the enigma in time to save the heiress, or will this mystery elude them?

The Briton and the Dane: Birthright
by
Mary Ann Bernal

DescriptionTwo years have passed since Alfred the Great successfully defeated Guthrum, King of the Vikings.

The fair land of England is at peace. That is, until the harmony is threatened by Guthrum’s angry, vengeful, illegitimate son, Rigr, who is hell-bent on usurping his father’s throne.

Rigr demands his Birthright – an acknowledgement that he is the sole heir to the Danelaw, but his father refuses his claim. Rigr assembles his army; a motley, but formidable, cohort of disenchanted warriors.

Fearsome Guthrum, ruler of everything from Kent to Northumbria, is made aware of the threat and conjures his forces, meeting the rebellious host on the field at Thetford.

Thousands upon thousands of bloodthirsty warriors confront each other on the sunlit, windless plains of East Anglia. The victors will rewrite the course of history, and the fate of England is in the hands of the gods of war.
