Circle of Five
by Jan Raymond

The Pha-yul trilogy Book 1

Circle of Five is the first book in the Pha-yul trilogy.

After a sudden lightning storm, Sam, Cassie, Ryan, Maya and Seb find that they’ve acquired strange and amazing powers. Confused and scared, they turn to Mr. Harris, a teacher in their school, who offers to help them control their powers.

But is there more to Mr. Harris than meets the eye? His cryptic explanations about their powers, how and why they manifested, leaves the five kids with more questions than answers. Can they trust Mr. Harris? Is he telling them the truth, or does he have his own reasons for helping them? What is the truth behind the secret society that he belongs to? The children try to figure out the answers as they work towards gaining control over their powers.

Unknown to them, danger lingers near. They have to face the threat and put their lives at risk. They must learn to trust one another and combine their powers to survive…will they make it? Are their powers strong enough? And will they finally find the answers they seek?

Gran-sdur:The Games, the second book in the Pha-yul trilogy is now available on Amazon.

Cicero's Dead
by
Patrick H. Moore

DescriptionCicero Lamont dealt drugs in massive quantities making huge profits and lots of enemies until one night he was introduced to a steel bumper in a hit-and-run and now he's dead. His daughter, Jade, has also just learned that her mom has committed suicide and now her brother, Richie, is missing. Jade hires Nick Crane to find Richie and to track down whoever murdered their father, but as the old saying goes, 'be careful what you wish for', because 300 million dollars cuts an awful lot of family ties.

The Beauty in the Beast
by
Regina Puckett

DescriptionWhy does everyone across the university campus call the Medieval Literature lecturer, Dr. Alec Knight, a brute and a beast, when Holly Day insists there has to be a better man hidden deep within him? Is there really a concealed beauty in the beast or is Alec just as terrible as the rest of the world believes him to be? One snowy day, out on a cold stone wall at the center of the university when everyone else has left for the Christmas break, Holly finds out the truth, after which neither she nor Alec will ever be the same again.

BEYOND: THREE PATHS
by
Maureen A. Miller

CSI East Coast Episode III
by
Roger Grubbs

DescriptionThe beautiful and brilliant CSI Agent Samantha Powers (Sam) along with her partner Jonathan West, a best selling novelist, are at it again. This time the stakes are higher than ever with bodies showing up daily. The only problem, law enforcement has a suspect but no way to prove it.

What begins as an apparent homicide turns out to be something totally unexpected. Before long bodies are showing up, and Sam is convinced they are all connected. While there are witnesses, something strange happens to each and every one of them.

Certain the city will panic if the killer isn’t stopped immediately, the mayor places the job of solving this crime squarely on Sam’s shoulders. Now under pressure and with the help of dedicated police officers, she and her partner work around the clock.

Before long they realize this serial killer is always one step ahead of the law. The only DNA evidence left at the scene matches the victim—until they finally get a big break. Minute amounts of skin found under the fingernail of a young woman reveal another source, a male. Now with a suspect in their sights, they set a trap; but what happens next will totally blow them away. See if you can follow the leads, but be prepared for a few surprises as you join us in this search for the elusive killer in CSI East Coast Episode III.


Flying to the Light
by
Elyse Salpeter

DescriptionSeventeen year old Michael Anderson and his Deaf kid brother, Danny, find themselves in mortal danger after their parents are kidnapped. Michael discovers Danny has a special gift—he knows what happens after a person dies—and now others want to know too. The brothers must outwit and outrun Samuel Herrington, a lethal biophysicist, the FBI, and even fellow Americans in a harrowing cross-country chase, because whoever gets to Danny first will have the power to rule the world.

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.
