What the Heart Knows
by Regina Puckett

After a night of celebrating with friends, Emily Warren is attacked by a colleague. She’s fortunate to escape the rape attempt but now suffers from terrifying nightmares, although she’s too ashamed to tell anyone. Her family suspect something and enlist Bill, an old friend of hers she’s not seen for a number of years, to try to find out what’s wrong. Under the pretext of a white-lie, he invites her out to his farm, where she will have to be careful she doesn’t reveal that her attacker is still in contact and threatening to finish what he started. This isn’t her biggest secret, though. Bill must never learn that she's loved him since high school.

Bill has two weeks to find out what is frightening Emily, but must also be careful she doesn’t discover how much he loves her.

The moment Bill and Emily meet again there is no denying the love they have for each other, but unfortunately, outside events soon come between them. They will have to fight for each other if true love is going to conquer all, and finally allow them to learn what their hearts already know.

The First Rule
by
Robert Crais

DescriptionThe Watchman put Joe Pike, Elvis Cole's strong, taciturn partner, front and center, and not only won Robert Crais new audiences but remarkable reviews. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel said "Robert Crais elevates crime fiction" and now with The First Rule he does it again.

The organized criminal gangs of the former Soviet Union are bound by what they call the thieves' code. The first rule is this: A thief must forsake his mother, father, brothers, and sisters. He must have no family-no wife, no children. We are his family. If any of the rules are broken, it is punishable by death.

Frank Meyer had the American dream-until the day a professional crew invaded his home and murdered everyone inside. The only thing out of the ordinary about Meyer was that- before the family and the business and the normal life-a younger Frank Meyer had worked as a professional mercenary, with a man named Joe Pike. The police think Meyer was hiding something very bad, but Pike does not. With the help of Cole, he sets out on a hunt of his own-an investigation that quickly entangles them both in a web of ancient grudges, blood ties, blackmail, vengeance, double crosses, and cutthroat criminality, and at the heart of it, an act so terrible even Pike and Cole have no way to measure it. Sometimes, the past is never dead. It's not even past.

The First Rule is the most astonishing novel yet from the master of the crime thriller.


Scarred Survival
by
Jackie Williams

DescriptionShe’s been a civilian for two years but only now does she realize that she’s been ‘one of the boys’ for far too long. Her prosthetic arm isn’t helping with her shattered self-esteem either. Things that never bothered her before are certainly bothering her now and that’s even before the arrival of the temperamental new guest at the rehabilitation centre.

Bunny on a Bike: Playboy croupiers in 80s London
by
Bev Spicer

DescriptionA Bev and Carol adventure Book 2

"A great insight into 80s London, attitudes to women and life as a trainee bunny, plus smatterings of celebrities, this book captures that careless sense of youthful immortality perfectly. A fab light-but-intelligent read." Amazon reviewer

"To say I liked this book would be an understatement, I absolutely loved it!" Amazon reviewer

"A wonderfully uplifting book that brightens even the dullest of days. The author has a way with words that delights the reader, and leaves her feeling better about the world in general." Amazon reviewer

Carol and Bev have no idea about what they want to do for a living. They see a newspaper advertisement for Playboy croupiers and, with a typical lack of forethought, decide to apply. After parading in bikinis and completing two gruelling maths tests (with a certain amount of cheating), they get the job. They do four weeks training at Victor Lownes' mansion in Tring, where there is free-flowing champagne and a well-stocked jukebox. They are commandeered to be photographed with Victor on his return from hospital, and are invited to attend one of his weekend parties, where they meet celebrities but are not terribly impressed.

Bev and Carol encounter unscrupulous landlords and exact a savage revenge. They deal blackjack to all kinds of punters, fend off lecherous pit bosses and almost fall in love. They get into all kinds of trouble and come out unscathed.

Bunny on a Bike gives the reader an amusing insight into life inside the casino and being young in 80s London. Along the way, Bev and Carol make us laugh with their very different attitudes to life. One thing is sure - they will be friends forever.

Bunny on a Bike is a memoir. It is anecdotal, unfolding chronologically, and told in the first person. Its tone is ironic, and its protagonists offer us an uplifting and humorous account of the process of becoming a Playboy croupier.

If you like frivolity and fun, if you like a dry kind of humour, if you like to laugh, you will love Bunny on a Bike.

There are three Bev and Carol adventures, which are all stand-alone books. For those who would like to know the order, here it is: 'One Summer in France', 'Bunny on a Bike' and 'Stranded in the Seychelles'.

Download a free sample to your Kindle and join Bev and Carol on one of their hilarious adventures.

Big Lake Burning
by
Nick Russell

DescriptionWhen mysterious fires begin plaguing the little mountain town of Big Lake, Arizona, it doesn’t take Sheriff Jim Weber long to realize that a serial arsonist is on the loose and has to be stopped before somebody dies or the entire forest goes up in flames. With the help of C.C. Callahan, a beautiful Deputy Fire Marshal, the sheriff begins the hunt while dealing with an upstart newspaper publisher hell-bent on smearing his good name and ruining his reputation. As the fires continue, fingers of blame are pointed and everybody in Big Lake wonders whose home or business will be the next to burn.

Time Will Tell
by
James Paddock

DescriptionAnnie seldom thought about her age, certainly never talked about that summer in 1943 when her mother birthed her, about the fact that her mother died that same year, or that it might have been in 1987–there was no way of knowing for sure–or about the fact that after 64 years she had yet to observe her 20th birthday.
