Stay Close, Novac!
by Jan Romes

Jessi Novac leads the quiet life of a romance author until someone leaves a series of explicit notes under her windshield wipers and heavy breathing on her answering machine.

Until NYPD can track down the culprit who's trying to scare the bejesus out of her, Jessi hides out at her grandmother's beach house in Myrtle Beach where she hopes to get her bearings. Instead, her life takes an even bigger tilt toward crazy when she meets her clumsy neighbor. She's suspicious of Ian Alexander, and attracted to him at the same time. Their relationship becomes a calamity of errors until strange things start happening at the beach house. Jessi clings to Ian for protection, but soon discovers her heart may be in more danger than her life.

Red Nova
by
Paul Centeno

DescriptionThe twenty-seventh century—also known as the Galactic Era—is a dark and crude epoch. In this cyberpunk and young-adult saga, Niralus Bisel, an admiral of United Earth Command, is assigned a top-secret mission to capture and send Liagon, a deadly alien, into a black hole known as Vacuity. The mission, however, turns upside down when Liagon escapes from his cell. Bisel must confront his nemesis and battle him to the death for the sake of defending humanity. When he fails, Liagon goes after his daughter for vengeance.

Behind the Walls
by
Elaine Orr

DescriptionThere’s something hidden behind the walls of the hurricane damaged house Jolie bought in her New Jersey beach town. Something someone seems willing to kill for. After Jolie and Scoobie find a small sack of jewelry as they do a mold attack on her bungalow, Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar. But the guy she’s most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. In between appraising houses and planning a fundraiser for the food pantry (can you say liquid string contest?), Jolie tries to figure out if there is more stolen bounty around town. Is the feared killer the same person who burned some vacant houses, or the as-yet unmasked Peeping Tom? And are they willing to kill again to get to the hidden riches?

Isia's Secret
by
Ray Stone

DescriptionEnda Osin is a sharp cookie when it comes to political intrigue. His daily column in the Herald is controversial and popular. Upsetting the incumbents of the White House and Downing Street over an embarrassing article, his editor has been forced to side-line him.

To help him is art correspondent, Jessica Du Rosse, a beautiful and sophisticated West Indian half his age and with whom he is soon falling in love.

The Lost Kingdom
by
David Leadbeater

DescriptionA secret mountain vault and the Smithsonian archives are being raided by a crazy Irish gang known as the 27 Club, working for a powerful global secret enemy. Ancient treasures are stolen, including the indecipherable Niven Tablets, once thought to show the way to a lost kingdom even greater than Atlantis.

Married or... merry?
by
Kate Papas

DescriptionThe International(?) Greek Book of Marriage, or 40+1 Reasons Not to Get Married!

What are the ingredients of a marriage? Pure love? Free sex? Nice home cooked food? Children playing around? Then, what about mother- in- laws, divorce, hatred and alimony? In my opinion, in Greece and all over the world, marriage is a mystery and -even worse- “the secret to a happy marriage remains a secret…”


A Shudder From Heaven
by
Danny Kemp

DescriptionA Shudder From Heaven is a story of two Spanish Catholic priests, one a Cardinal and the other a novice Jesuit who both commit suicide because of a young, ambitious Italian girl. Teresa Ramos, mother of Alvaro and sister to Cardinal Ramos, sets about taking her revenge for the death of her son and brother, but although her late husband was a police officer, she is far from educated in criminal ways. This is not a story that you may initially expect, and has an ending that could not be envisaged!

Death Knell In The Alps
by
Peggy A. Edelheit

DescriptionMy name is Samantha. I'm an author who's become semi-famous for stirring up and getting into trouble solving unusual mysteries. This time I should have known something was up when my crew and I were invited on an expense-free ski trip to the Swiss Alps. Suspicion kicked in when a creepy in-your-face message was found hanging in my hotel shower. What kind of vacation was this?
