The Summer Solstice
by K.K. Allen

Enchanted (Volume 1)

After Katrina "Kat" Summer’s mother dies a mysterious and tragic death, Kat is hurtled into life at Apollo Beach. Her estranged and cryptic grandmother Rose fills Kat with legends of her Ancient Greek Ancestors from which the Summer family descends. Kat’s world begins to unravel as secrets from her heritage are exposed – secrets that her mother purposefully concealed.

Leading to her birthday, the day of the Summer Solstice, Kat becomes frightened when enigmatic visions and disturbing dreams haunt her. When her visions become reality, her fear turns to terror as powerful forces threaten the lives of those around her.

Amidst the turmoil, Kat meets Alec Stone, her gorgeous neighbor, who becomes her sole solace in an evocative world of mythological enchantment and evil prophecies that lurk around every corner…

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!

Burning Embers
by
Hannah Fielding

DescriptionCoral Sinclair is a beautiful but naïve twenty-five-year-old photographer who has just lost her father. She's leaving the life she's known and traveling to Kenya to take ownership of her inheritance--the plantation that was her childhood home--Mpingo. On the voyage from England, Coral meets an enigmatic stranger to whom she has a mystifying attraction. She sees him again days later on the beach near Mpingo, but Coral’s childhood nanny tells her the man is not to be trusted. It is rumored that Rafe de Monfort, owner of a neighboring plantation and a nightclub, is a notorious womanizer having an affair with her stepmother, which may have contributed to her father’s death.

Farewell to Goodbye
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionBook #1 of the Never Say Goodbye Series

Sometimes goodbye is not forever…

It’s been seven years since Melanie Rhodes was brutally attacked by a deranged serial killer. Now, sheriff of the sleepy little village of Spring Haven, Michigan, things are good. The worst crimes she has to deal with are kids partying on vacant property and the occasional domestic dispute.

Even when a woman’s body is found in the woods, she thinks she has a straight forward murder case on her hands. But when the second body is discovered she makes a startling connection between the two dead women. Both were attacked by serial killers in their past and both had lived to tell about it. Fearing the worst, she prepares to call in the FBI for help but before she can, her fears are confirmed. Another young woman’s body is found by a fisherman, and she too had been attacked by a serial killer in the past.

The FBI sends in Trevor Giles, their best monster hunter and a man from Mel’s terrifying past. As the bodies begin to pile up Mel and Trevor must learn to put the past behind them in order to work together to find the killer. And together they will have to use both conventional and unconventional means to unravel the mystery. Mel will have to dip into a talent she has vowed never to use again. She will have to “connect” to the killer’s mind in order to find him. Time is running out and the killer’s intentions are clear. The ultimate prize must be claimed: Sheriff Melanie Rhodes herself.


Jack and the Jungle Lion
by
Stephen Jared

DescriptionBattling giant snakes, poison pits and hostile headhunters after a plane crash in the Amazon, movie star Jack Hunter reveals himself to be something altogether different from the macho adventurer he plays in Hollywood. Luckily for him, he's marooned with movie-industry animal trainer Maxine Daniels and her two kids. The lovely "Max" has more than enough high-spirited courage and fiery determination to get them all home. But when terrifying natives capture the feisty heroine, fate calls on the handsome actor to become the hero he always pretended to be in pictures.

But Lyra doubts whether a wizard is capable of love. She’s torn—should she protect her fragile heart or risk new love?

Restoration

The Brutus Gate
by
Billy Ray Chitwood

DescriptionBailey Crane, auxiliary cop for the Phoenix PD, is set-up by the bad guys and nearly consumed by a warehouse fire as this adventure begins. One of the thugs utters a mysterious phrase, 'Beware the Brutus Gate,' and the boys in blue have a good chuckle and try to figure out its meaning. This simple string of words marks the start of a tale that leads our southern muser/sleuth to the worst criminal elements in our society, elements that reach the highest levels of government and politics. Bailey encounters the players of the drug world, murder, and political corruption with his special panache and contempt. It's a case that has it all, and there are some personal changes in the life of our crusader for truth and justice. Bailey's emotions run the normal gamut as he plods and ponders his new realities, his life, and the meaning of it all. The climax to THE BRUTUS GATE plays out at an old ranch on the Mexican border, just south of Yuma, Arizona. It's a fun caper you won't want to miss.
