Red Written
by P. T. Mayes

"Not quite the apocalypse, but something different."

On the morning of the 9th of July, Michael Wells wakes, looks at his reflection in the mirror and make a disturbing discovery. All his sins have been written across his face and body. The words are not tattoos; they are indelible stains, deep and red, written in a strange language. Michael has literally become a walking encyclopaedia of his deepest, darkest desires.

And he is not alone. The whole world has been touched by the same curse.

But Michael is unlucky: he has been given extra. There is a big MURDER on his chest, directly over his heart, but he has never murdered anyone in his life. Surely, there must be some mistake?

Meanwhile, not far away, a young woman named Eva Loh discovers that she too has been touched by the strange marks, but being a photographer she decides to document the ensuing chaos as society crumbles around her. She will record every last atrocity for posterity, even if it kills her.

Both Michael and Eva must fight for survival as they attempt to understand the strange forces that have torn their lives – and the life of every living person on the planet -- apart. Meanwhile new societies and religions, both good and evil, grow out of the ruins of the old world, determined to grab as much power for themselves as they can. What Michael and Eve don’t realise is that they both have important roles to play in this new and dangerous world. Their destinies await them.

And then there’s the sinless man, and he's biding his time, watching.

Red Written is dark urban fantasy/adventure set in contemporary Britain. It is aimed at MATURE readers and contains adult language and themes that are unsuitable for children.

Shadow Tag
by
Marjorie Doering

DescriptionPaul Davis, a top ACC executive is found dead in the boardroom of the Minneapolis-based company. The Board of Directors claims it was suicide. And why not? Davis was discovered with a pearl-handled revolver in his hand and a bullet wound to his head.

Detective Ray Schiller and his partner Dick Waverly, however, are far from convinced and soon find they may be investigating a murder. Why would Davis kill himself less than twenty-four hours after finally taking over his late father-in-law's company? The Board and Davis's successor are quick to provide answers, but their actions suggest they've got something to hide. And they aren't the only ones keeping secrets--not by a long shot.

What if your choices had eternal ramification?

Captain Of Her Heart
by
Barbara Devlin

DescriptionBook 5 in the Brethren of the Coast series.

Lady Alexandra Seymour is going after her man. To make amends for a past deception, when she enlisted her connubial conquest’s aid in a scheme of hearts, she tells newly inducted Nautionnier Knight Jason Collingwood, “I will do anything.” But she ends up making his bed, instead of warming it. Still, Alex will not be discouraged, as she vows to meet and surpass his challenge, but will he meet hers?

When Alex arrives in Plymouth, Jason tries to resist the temptation she presents, but the highborn daughter of a duke will not be denied. As his storm-battered ship is refitted, he mends the rift in his relationship with the woman of his dreams, but war gets in the way, as duty calls. When Jason returns, six months later, hoping to surprise Alex with a proposal, he’s the one in for a shock, and he fears his lady may never again hold him as the captain of her heart.
