Birth of an Assassin
by Rik Stone

Set against the backdrop of Soviet, post-war Russia, Birth of an Assassin follows the transformation of Jez Kornfeld from wide-eyed recruit to avenging outlaw. Amidst a murky underworld of flesh-trafficking, prostitution and institutionalized corruption, the elite Jewish soldier is thrown into a world where nothing is what it seems, nobody can be trusted, and everything can be violently torn from him.

Angel Breaths
by
Sherrie Lowe

DescriptionAngelique and Louis are soul mates but they can’t be together for reasons beyond their control; one of them is on the earth plane and one is in the realm of the angels. Their bond is not a physical one but one of senses; each feels the others presence.

Heart Shaped Shards
by
Ria MacAlister

DescriptionBeaten once again and left for dead by the man she should have been able to trust with her life, Kate awakened from a coma to discover that not only has she lost the precious baby she carried, the beating also damaged her internally so that doctors didn't think she would ever conceive again. As if that weren't enough, Kate is also nearly blind due to the injury to her brain.

Scarred--not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually too--Kate moves in with her childhood friend to try to recover. Eventually her physical body begins to heal, but her emotional state seems to deteriorate with each passing day. It isn't until Patricia Daniels, an Irish psychotherapist, comes into her life that Kate finally starts putting the pieces back together in her shattered life.

Patricia (Trish to her friends) takes Kate with her on holiday to Ireland and Scotland. Through a series of kindhearted Celtic men, brick by brick Kate is finally able to bring down the fortr


Big Easy
by
Eric Wilder

DescriptionWhen someone begins killing New Orleans street people, it affects the City's tourist trade just beginning to recover from Hurricane Katrina. More than just simple acts of murder, voodoo is involved, the killer likely an actual Vodoun deity. Homicide detective Tony Nicosia seeks the help of gumshoe, and Big Easy insider Wyatt Thomas. Wyatt enlists Mama Mulate, Tulane English professor, and actual voodoo mambo. Together, they try to unravel the strangest mystery to hit the venerable City since the era of Marie Laveau. Big Easy is the first novel in the Wyatt Thomas French Quarter Mystery Series that includes City of Spirits, and Primal Creatures.

Jetting Away
by
Teri Heyer

DescriptionPriscilla Alexander can no longer take the stress of her job as an advertising executive in San Francisco. In addition, her soon-to-be-divorced mother has permanently moved into Priscilla's small condo. To make matters worse, Priscilla recently split from her dead-end boyfriend. So, after eating a to-die-for hot-fudge sundae at Ghirardelli Square, she decides to get away. Her destination? She'll fly to Australia and venture into the Outback, alone. As Priscilla has come to realize, sometimes escape is the only option.

WARNING: "Jetting Away" is a short story prequel to "Outback Love." It can be read as a stand-alone, but I'm sure you'll enjoy Priscilla's further adventures in my contemporary romance novel, "Outback Love." "Jetting Away" is approximately 5,680 words in length. It's a short, fun read with a touch of romance. You may feel compelled to drink coffee, eat donuts, savor hot fudge sundaes and jet away. Best of all, it's Free!!!

Hot Roast Beef with Mustard
by
James Paddock

Description

It’s a day like any other, except  for the money, and the hot roast beef with mustard, chocolate shake and hot apple pie at Charlie’s.

Naomi Wilcox’s life is in limbo before that Saturday when she finds herself driving too fast on a two lane backtop in Nevada, a bag stuffed with bundles of hundred dollar bills next to her, a new life ahead.
