Bodyswitch
by David Callinan

So you think your body belongs to you – think again!

Jack Madigan has the perfect life. He runs a mission in the Bronx helping New York's poor and homeless, the lost souls of the city. His wife Kerry works on a campaigning newspaper. They are not rich but they are fulfilled. And they are about to have their first child.

Sadistic sociopath Ernie Mason is released from prison; the poor black kid from the Bronx brutalised by a lifetime of abuse, drugs and crime until he becomes a killer; a walking time-bomb. He gets drunk, steals a car and goes joyriding in central Manhattan.

Jack says goodbye to Kerry after a routine medical examination and she crosses the busy street.

Ernie Mason hits Kerry full on, killing her instantly and killing himself.

The bottom falls out of Jack Madigan's life. But then he is made an offer no other human being has ever received. The chance to say a final goodbye to Kerry on 'the other side'.

But there is a price to pay.

He must allow a recently departed soul to occupy his body while he is in spiritual limbo to be given one last chance of redemption.

That's when the cosmic switch clicks and a dark soul enters Jack Madigan's body.

Guess who?

Princess
by
Staci Stallings

DescriptionA Contemporary New Adult Romance Novel

From the outside looking in, Anthony Russell has it all. As the star basketball player on a winning college team, everybody knows him and loves him. His face is plastered on publicity poster after publicity poster. He's even gotten offers from the pros to forego his senior year for the glitz and glamour of the Big Show. But Anthony has a secret that's threatening to swallow his life whole…

Heather Nolan would be the perfect poster-girl for academic overachievers. She's got straight A's and every professor in her cheering corner. But the life Heather thought she was studying so hard for is in danger of coming to a neck-snapping halt if she can't come up with a way to pay the bills. Bitter and angry that the basketball team seems to get the royal treatment while "real students" are forced to scrape by, Heather spitefully takes the only job available-tutoring. However, the lessons she teaches about English and what she learns about basketball soon pale in comparison with what she learns about herself.

PRINCESS represents the collision of two college students, both with dreams and goals, both with real-to-life issues that are complicating everything. Like many new adults, Heather wants to manage life on her own terms, but paying for everything has become impossible. Anthony, on the other hand, seems to have it made, but in this contemporary romance, not everything is as it seems. The meeting of these two souls challenges both of them to let go of pride, prejudices, and pre-conceived notions about life and each other. Watching the coming of age journey is fascinating.

Battle Of Fortune Wells
by
Daniel C. Chamberlain

DescriptionThe great Comanche people, once considered by military experts to be the finest mounted fighting force in the world, were surrendering to the U.S. Army. The last to surrender were the Quahadi people led by the famed “War Chief” Quanah Parker and were relegated to a reservation made up of Comanche, Kiowa and some Apache people in the Southwest Indian Territory. But reservations were not prisons, and many of those who lived there simply left to hunt or wander and often they attacked isolated ranches and buffalo hunters encamped in areas that once had been the great Comanche Nation.

Sign of the Dragon
by
Neil Low

Description1940--Seattle--The eve of WWII. Imperial Japan threatens to conquer Asia and the entire Pacific Theater. Despite anit-war protests and Congressional intervention, critical supplies and support are flowing into Japan from America's West Coast ports, including shipments of scrap iron and steel from Seattle's trolley lines, enabling Japan to make its war machines to expand and tighten its grip on Asia. Because it can be used to make munitions, brass becomes the most coveted metal of all. Alan Stewart teams with Tiger Lee, a sexy American operative on a mission to disrupt the spy network led by the White Dragon, a dangerous Japanese samurai whose movements are shrouded in mystery. What begins as a hunt for justice quickly turns into a maelstrom of revenge and a race against the clock as politics become personal and loyalties are tested from every side.
