Surviving The Evacuation Book 1: London: Volume 1

Zombies. The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. No one is safe from the undead. As anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The British press was nationalised. Martial law, curfews and rationing were implemented. It wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned. The inland towns and cities of the United Kingdom were to be evacuated to defensive enclaves being built around the coast, the Scottish Highlands, and in the Irish Republic. Bill Wright, a Westminster insider and an advisor to a future Prime Minister, broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees. He watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. Then the power went out. He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, a decades old conspiracy, and his unwitting part in it. This is the first volume of his journal. (73,000 words)

But the appearance of this strange boy isn't the only thing that's changed. Bryn's symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she's plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what's happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn't find out his identity before it's too late, they both may not survive.

I Bring the Fire Parts I, II, III, & In the Balance (A Loki Series)

~ USA TODAY BESTSELLING SERIES ~

Sometimes the hero is the wrong guy at the right time.

When Amy Lewis prays for a savior, Loki Norse God of Mischief and Chaos isn't who she has in mind. Loki can't resist Amy's summons, but he can insist she help him outwit Odin, ruler of the Nine Realms. Can Amy trust a so-called God of Mischief? With a powerful evil calling him from beneath the city's streets, can Loki even trust himself?

This box set contains the first three installments of I Bring the Fire plus In the Balance. It is perfect for fans of The Dresden Files, American Gods, and Terry Pratchett.

***

Wolves: I Bring the Fire Part I

In the middle of America, Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma's house. She's being chased by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he's done wrong -- this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he's forgotten...

In this urban fantasy tale a nice midwestern girl and a jaded, mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he's forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, Earthly pleasures, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

***

Monsters: I Bring the Fire Part II

After being attacked by a serial killer, saved by Loki -- so-called God of Mischief, Lies and Chaos -- dragged to Alfheim, losing every cent in her bank account, and caring for her grandmother, Amy Lewis has lost her scholarship to veterinary school. But it's alright. She has a plan. If she manages to keep her day job as a receptionist, and her night job as a vet tech, she may be able to get her scholarship reinstated and save enough money for the dreaded 'miscellaneous fees.'

Too bad her day boss is unbearable...

Agent Steve Rogers has political aspirations, but when a suitcase nuke turns out to be something much worse and so-called Norse gods start showing up in his life, he has a priority shift.

Meanwhile, Loki's priorities and plans haven't changed at all. He wants Asgard to burn. Of course, earthly pleasures can be so distracting.

These three disparate characters have little in common, but they'll have to join forces to save earth from trolls, wyrms, frost giant invasions, and an old evil growing beneath Chicago's streets.

***

Chaos: I Bring the Fire Part III

In this final installment of the Cera story arc, the noose around Loki's neck is tightening. Ger?r, the frost giantess, wants him dead; Cera, the World Seed, wants his head--literally and figuratively; the FBI wants him in Guantanamo; and an old friend from Asgard wants to bring him home...whether Loki likes it or not.

Things can't get any worse, but when Loki's involved, it's certain they will. In the third chapter of I Bring the Fire, humanity's demons are unleashed on the Nine Realms and Amy Lewis and Steve Rogers get front row seats.

Chaos might be their only hope.

***

In the Balance: An I Bring the Fire Novella

Chaos can never really be destroyed ...

Loki, God of Chaos, gave Amy Lewis all his memories, and one request before he saved the universe. "Remember for me."

Amy knows Loki will find her, one way or another ... eventually. But as the weeks have ticked by she's lost hope.

Called into the FBI headquarters to identify a magical artifact, she gets the opportunity to find Loki for herself. In doing so, she tips the scales of not one, but two universes, and has to choose for herself what form she wants Chaos to take.

The fate of the Nine Realms is in the balance, and this time it is in Amy's hands.

Steampunk Fairy Tales

A Christmas Carol (Wisehouse Classics - with original illustrations)

A CHRISTMAS CAROL is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London on December 1843. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim. A Christmas Carol tells the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation into a gentler, kindlier man after visitations by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. The book was written at a time when the British were examining and exploring Christmas traditions from the past as well as new customs such as Christmas cards and Christmas trees. Carol singing took a new lease on life during this time. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales.

Dickens was not the first author to celebrate the Christmas season in literature, but it was he who superimposed his humanitarian vision of the holiday upon the public, an idea that has been termed as Dickens' "Carol Philosophy". Dickens believed the best way to reach the broadest segment of the population regarding his concerns about poverty and social injustice was to write a deeply felt Christmas story rather than polemical pamphlets and essays. Dickens' career as a best-selling author was on the wane, and the writer felt he needed to produce a tale that would prove both profitable and popular. Dickens' visit to the work-worn industrial city of Manchester was the "spark" that fired the author to produce a story about the poor, a repentant miser, and redemption that would become A Christmas Carol. The forces that inspired Dickens to create a powerful, impressive and enduring tale were the profoundly humiliating experiences of his childhood, the plight of the poor and their children during the boom decades of the 1830s and 1840s, and Washington Irving's essays on old English Christmas traditions published in his Sketch Book (1820); and fairy tales and nursery stories, as well as satirical essays and religious tracts.

When she expresses her reservations, he offers an even more outrageous proposition. Can she win the wager or will her body succumb to the wicked attentions of Lord Rockwell?

A Very Country Christmas: A Free Christmas Short Story (The Tippermere Series)

Festive fervour takes over and it isn't all seasonal peace and goodwill as expectations rise and it soon escalates from cosy dinner for two, to all the trimmings for ten!

With missing turkeys, loose horses, troublesome terriers and randy huntsmen, Lottie is hard pushed to find time for a kiss under the mistletoe, let alone find the opportunity to woo Rory with her sexy Santa costume.

But there is only one thing Lottie really wants for Christmas, and only one man can deliver it...

Lovin' Las Vegas: Books 1 - 3

"Kathy Ivan's books are addictive, you can't read just one." Susan Stoker, NYT and USA TODAY Bestselling Author

Welcome to Las Vegas, where fortunes can be won or lost at the whisper of a wager, and love can be as elusive as a dream. Meet these strong, independent couples, willing to risk it all on finding their happily-ever-after with the one that got away.

IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS

One little wager. What could go wrong?

That's what Charlie King thinks when her friends dare her to reach out to the one man she's never forgotten. There's just one catch--he's the older brother of her former fiancee.

Rodeo star Jared Drake is in Vegas for the Grand National finals when he spots Charlie. Their chemistry is instantly off the charts. There's just one problem--his role in her broken engagement.

This time around, can they beat the odds to happily-ever-after or will secrets from the past keep them apart forever?

CRAZY VEGAS LOVE

It's party time in Las Vegas when four former college roommates and best friends converge on Sin City. Add in a crazy drunken bet about finding "the one that got away" to see if there's a spark still burning after all these years--how bad could it be? The next day, after coming to her senses, Gloria Valenzuela had no intention of going through with the bet. Not until one of the other women played fairy godmother and arranged things so Gloria had no choice but to meet up with her ex.

A world famous country music star, Kyle Greenwood had everything he'd ever wanted except for the one thing he'd left behind--Gloria. Then fate in the form of his matchmaking manager lends a hand and brings Gloria back into his life.

Before the night is over, a simple practical joke escalates into more than either anticipate. Secrets from their past begin to unravel and threaten their last chance at happiness. Can they overcome their obstacles and hold onto their happily ever after?

MARRIAGE, VEGAS STYLE

It's party time in Las Vegas when four former college roommates and best friends converge on Sin City. Add in a crazy drunken bet about finding "the one that got away" to see if there's a spark still burning after all these years--how bad could it be? When Cynthia "Cyn" Evans finds herself without access to cash and credit cards, she tempted to cave in to her mother's demands to return home and become engaged to someone who's earned the family approval. That is, until she runs into Noah Cochran in the hotel lobby. What are the odds the one man she decided not to look for is right here in Vegas?

Noah Cochran can't believe his luck. The consortium deciding on the contract for the brand new casino complex has narrowed its choices down to five contenders, and his company is at the top of the list. But he's the only unmarried businessman in the running, and if he wants to make a good impression, he needs a fiancee--fast.

A fake engagement seems the ideal solution, until things spiral out of control. Will outside forces pull them apart when they've just found each other again, or can they hang on tight for their own happily-ever-after?

War And Peace (Penguin Clothbound Classics)

This beautiful Penguin Classics clothbound edition of Tolstoy's great novel is translated with an introduction and notes by Anthony Briggs, and with an afterword by Orlando Figes. At a glittering society party in St Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon's army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants to soldiers and Napoleon himself. In War and Peace, Tolstoy entwines grand themes - conflict and love, birth and death, free will and faith - with unforgettable scenes of nineteenth-century Russia, to create a magnificent epic of human life in all its imperfection and grandeur. Anthony Briggs' superb translation combines stirring, accessible prose with fidelity to Tolstoy's original, while Orlando Figes' afterword discusses the novel's vast scope and depiction of Russian identity. This edition also contains appendices, notes, a list of prominent characters and maps. "A masterpiece...This new translation is excellent." (Anthony Beevor).

In the Great Commonwealth of Beimeni, a subterranean civilization in North America, expansion long ago gave way to peace and prosperity in the face of the history's most devastating plague. Immortality is the reward for service and loyalty in Beimeni, a place where the physical blends with the metaphysical and power consolidates in the hands of those with a genetic edge. The fissures first spread slowly, then swiftly, until now the Great Commonwealth finds itself on the brink of economic devastation, challenged by forces from within that know its secrets and its crimes.

At the center of the conflict lie the Selendias of Piscator, founders of the resistance with an uncanny connection to the zeropoint field; and the Barao Strike Team, three researchers tasked with finding a cure to the Reassortment Strain, the plague that nearly wiped humanity from the Earth. Traveling from the uninhabitable but pristine surface to the habitable but inhospitable underground, this is a story about dedication to dreams, battle for survival, discovery and connection, song and celebration, undoing past misdeeds, and sacrifice for the greater good.

TEMPTED BY THE PACK

For Rafer Breaux, life in the Louisiana Bayou is harsh, violent--and deeply sensual. The Cajun werewolf lives for his Pack and he'll do whatever it takes to keep his brothers safe. The longer a wolf lives without his fated mate, the harder it becomes for that wolf to shift back. To remember that he is a man--and not a monster. And those mates can only be found during a blue moon. When a blue moon finally rises, Rafer will need every weapon in his sensual arsenal to tempt one special woman into his arms and the heart of the Pack.

Fighting to keep her family farm, Lark Andrews isn't looking for love. Even if the very sexy Breaux brothers make her dream of hot bayou nights spent in their arms. When the blue moon leads Rafer to her door, however, Rafer has her rethinking her position on all work and no play. Now, the bayou nights are heating up as Rafer fights to convince her, one sensual touch at a time, to give love and passion a chance. But Rafer isn't a one wolf deal. Is there room in Lark's heart--and bed--for Rafer and his Pack?

WOLF'S HEART

To keep the peace between two rival wolf packs, Cajun werewolf Jace Jones agrees to become the alpha of The Breed pack and motorcycle club. There's just one catch: he needs to mate the former alpha's daughter and he's damned certain she hasn't chosen him. His new mate is sweet and sexy as sin, but she's also been brutalized by the pack and the last thing she needs is one more wolf in her life. But before he can take his place as leader of the Breed, he'll have to teach his woman her place... in the club, in his arms, and in his heart.

AT THE VIKING'S COMMAND

Tyra didn't ask to be turned into a werewolf. She also didn't want to fall in love with a Berserker.

All she wants is to get on with her life. But a prophecy foretells that the werewolves will bring about the end of the world, so now the entire paranormal world is gunning for her new Pack.

A mercenary and soldier of fortune, Calder clawed his way to the top of the modern Viking world and he'll defend his brothers-in-arms to the last breath. But nothing prepared him for his reaction to the newly turned werewolf who shows up and demands his help.

There's no denying the intense sexual chemistry between them--a bond forged before they faced this danger--and soon the lines between duty and pleasure blur. But if Tyra wants to keep her Viking, first she'll have to learn the sweet pleasures of submission...

QUOTES

"She thinks we're a bunch of overconfident aristocrats descended from an ancient royal family led by a group of powerful men." Sampson

"The threat in those words doesn't escape me. I had kind of expected that he wouldn't pull me against him and kiss me senseless, but I hadn't expected having to leave this soon either. Hesitantly, I take one step closer and place the cake box on the porch before I turn around and walk away. This is starting to get old." Laurel

"I never seem to be able to call my mother by anything other than her first name. It probably has something to do with my Spartan upbringing. I don't remember her ever comforting me when she left me behind crying on Olympus. And yet I respect her, because I know very well that raising me has been no easy task." Sampson

"You won't hurt me, Sam. You hurt people who hurt me." Laurel

"I toss aside the towel and saunter into the bedroom. Despite the hard water pressure of the shower and the stretching, my body is still tight, and my muscles feel cramped. I could use a massage, but there is no time left to work out the kinks. I squat and search for a pair of boxers in my bag. Then I unzip one of the garment bags hanging on the closet door, take out a dark, custom-made suit, and put on a white dress shirt. I button up and loop a tie around my neck. As I push a cufflink through the hole of the sleeve, Laurel gets into my head. Laurel, who had driven me to the brink of madness by taking the cufflinks off. I can still smell the tempting scent of her skin, still feel her fingertips carefully exploring my abdomen. I feel myself getting hard when I think of the sensuous way she touched me. I can almost taste her. I almost did taste her." Sampson

"Is this really a demigod? I don't exactly know what my expectations were - it's not like I have anything to compare it to. But I certainly did not expect a demigod to be walking around in ripped jeans with a beat up face and complaining about a headache. I didn't expect someone with such sad, tired eyes. But I also know that under normal circumstances, that same face is flawless." Laurel

"This is me, Laurel. Complicated. No relationships, no expectations, no promises." Sampson

His life's about to get a whole lot worse...

When Venn is arrested for a murder he didn't commit, he's given a choice.

Track down a missing professor of neurochemistry, in an operation that's so politically sensitive even the FBI can't be allowed to touch it.

Or face life in prison.

Dr Beth Colby is having a bad day, too.

She's used to dealing with death, in her job as a physician at one of New York City's busiest hospitals. But two people she knows have just died mysteriously in the space of twenty-four hours.

And before the day's out, Beth herself will become the target of a shocking attack.

Events conspire violently to throw Venn and Beth together, and soon they're locked into a desperate race against time to uncover the secret of Professor Lomax's disappearance.

What's the connection with the research he's conducting into groundbreaking neuromodulatory drugs?

And why are Venn and Beth being hunted by not one but two professional assassins - as well as by the most powerful organized crime family in New York?

As the chase spreads from Manhattan to New England and back again, and the net closes relentlessly in on Venn and Beth, each of them must use their unique set of skills to the maximum.

Not just to uncover the terrible secret so many people are desperate to keep hidden.

But also simply to stay alive...

Relentless in its action, terrifying in its suspense, and riddled with twist upon shocking twist, OMEGA DOG is a heartstopping rollercoaster ride that will thrill and chill you in equal measure.

The Knowing: Book One

It starts with a school shooting.

It ends with the return of an evil as ancient as the skeleton of the universe.

In the middle, normal garden-variety people must figure out how to live their everyday lives--how to survive!--after they discover that all those childhood horror stories ... well, most of them are true.

When the hot call comes over the radio: "Code Red! Active shooter at Carlisle Elementary School," Police Sergeant Jack Carpenter has one job and only one job. Find the gunman; take him out. He rushes into the school, fully armed and focused on cold, hard reality. But what happens to him in the next few hours shatters the world as he has always known it. And in the next three days, everything Jack Carpenter believes about himself, about life and reality, about good and evil and the whole nature of the universe will be challenged.

Can it possibly be true--seriously?--that invisible monsters prowl among us every day?

That there exists in the real world a winged creature more horrifying than any Hollywood-animated, computer-generated, mechanical unreality?

And that the single-minded mission of that beast--a creation of absolute, soul-less evil--is to kill Jack Carpenter?

That's crazy! Fairy-tale-science-fiction-horror-movie-bogeyman crap!

Bottom line: it flat-out cannot possibly be true.

But it is.

Interview with the Author

Q - What makes The Knowing special?

A - It's real. Some things really are unexplainable. As a paranormal thriller, The Knowing can be disturbing but it's not about zombies or vampires or people who turn into werewolves or giant bears or attack-gerbils. The characters in The Knowing are folks you could bump carts with in a small town grocery store, so when the unexplainable starts to happen to them, you realize the same thing could happen to you.

Q - Why did you write a series?

A - Because the story was too big for 1 book. Even for 2. Writing a series gave me the chance to tell a sprawling tale of spiritual warfare and dark psychic suspense that spans a quarter of a century. Something happened to these people when they were 12 years old, but every memory of that summer has been wiped from their minds.

Q - Is this Christian fiction?

A -There's no religion in it. There are scriptural realities, though, that most Christians say they believe--but really don't. Theresa Washington from The Knowing says it best: "The smartest thing Satan ever done was to get people to believe he don't exist." Some have called The Knowing dark and disturbing. I think I'd call it ... a scary story about supernatural spiritual warfare--that's mostly true.

Q - Why should readers give this book a try?

A - Because it's a paranormal thriller set in a small town that will capture your heart and mind, grab you in a reality so gripping you'll decide you can fold the towels later and the lawn will still be out there to mow tomorrow. Don't start the book at bedtime or you might still be awake at dawn.

Pilgrim's Progress: Updated, Modern English. More Than 100 Illustrations.

Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you ll begin to identify today s many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he s a true follower of Christ when he s really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you. The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original "Pilgrim s Progress" listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book. The text is tweaked just enough to make it readable today, for the young and the old. Youngsters in particular will be drawn to the original illustrations included in this wonderful classic."

Free-Wrench: Volume 1

The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic "fug." Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive. To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do. Nita's mother has lost her livelihood and perhaps soon her life to a terrible disease. Already the black sheep of the family for embracing engineering rather than art, Nita resolves to leave the safety of her home and do whatever it takes to find a cure.

Mail Order Bride: Susannah's Story (Book 1) (Sweeping Montana Romances)

Historical Western Montana Romance- meet Susannah and the Mackenzie cowboys!

After discovering an ad in the Matrimonial Times for a Montana cowboy looking for a mail-order bride, Susannah jumps at the opportunity to leave her job of hardship with the Davenports in New York for a new opportunity in Montana. She soon learns that the ad was posted in error, and in fact Jared was not looking for a wife- but he could use a writer at his newspaper. Susannah takes off immediately for Montana, thrilled to embark on a new life and career. She does not anticipate the being in Jared's life- even as a writer, not a wife-comes with a dangerous price, and that falling love is not something you can necessarily control.

Jared was definitely not planning to get married, and when he read Susannah's letter it took him a moment to realize it was his mother looking out for him that caused the mail-order bride ad to be printed. He saw an opportunity in the situation and decided to take a chance on Susannah- his newspaper could sure use a lady's touch! Not realizing that Susannah's move meant that she now became part of his close circle of family and friends threatened by an old rival of his, he felt a strong need to protect her from the danger she now faced. Unexpectedly falling in love with her did not make things any easier. Will Jared be able to keep Susannah safe and reveal his secret love for her?

The Forgotten Women Heroes: Second World War Untold Stories: The Women Heroes in the Extraordinary World War Two

This is a short collection of untold stories about the women heroes in the extraordinary World War Two.

These women have been footnotes in history, and at least one of them was a model for women in James Bond books and movies.

This book is an effort to remember these forgotten women and remove the shrouds from the memory of these amazing and courageous women.

Dr Raoul M. Fury's Compendium Of Modern Lies is a collection of funny, silly, worrying short stories for children and adults alike (i.e. chadults).

Containing somewhere between 0 and 1,000,000 short stories (I think it's 14), with a foreword, afterword and midword, and lovingly/resentfully illustrated by Dr Raoul himself, this anthology of short fiction is perfect to read on your own, with a parent or with a sleepy/scared child, or with a robot that is programmed to like short stories, or perhaps with a friend who you quite like but don't really really like.

Stories include:

- "How The Tiger Got Its Spots" - a fable about how the giraffe got its stupid long neck

- "Something Something Something DINOSAURS" - which I think is about dinosaurs

- "The Three And A Half Labours Of Schmercules" - a historically accurate story about a Greek demigod

...and many more! (if by "many" you mean "eleven")

This set includes:

The Trouble With Goodbye (Book 1: Leigh Anne and Knox)

Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she's never known.

Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.

With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she's hiding a terrible secret.

That's when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she's near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what's left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.

Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it's about courage and sometimes it's about fear. And sometimes you're too broken to know the difference until it's too late.

The Moment We Began (Book 2: Penny and Mason)

The moment they both believe all hope is lost is the moment something real finally begins.

I have loved Mason Trent for years, but I've only been sleeping with him for one.

None of my friends know about our secret passion. He's in my bed one night and in the arms of someone else the next. And it's tearing me apart.

I've done everything I can think of to make him mine, but the more I cling to him, the harder he pushes me away. I'm spiraling out of control, not sure how much more of this I can take. A girl can only bend so far until she breaks. And when I do, I break completely. I'm talking about one night of bad decisions, all leading to a my-world-will-never-be-the-same kind of moment. A moment where I need Mason more than ever. True to form, though, he's running.

But I intend to go with him this time. I'm willing to leave my money, my family, my friends behind for this one last chance to see if he could ever really love me the way I deserve to be loved. I'm willing to sacrifice forever if it means one real moment with him.

A Season For Hope (Book 3: Bailey and Judd)

Being dumped just before the holidays was my worst nightmare. I'd spent so many years thinking Preston Wright was the one for me that when he told me it was over, I thought I'd rather die than face the future.

I never expected someone like Judd Kohler to come crashing into my life. Literally. He was coming out. I was going in. My face got in the way. You get the picture. It was an accident. Running into him twice in one day, though? It started to feel like fate.

My mother always says Christmas is a magical time of year. A season for hope. All I know is that just when I thought I'd lost mine, hope somehow found its way back to me.

Just in time for Christmas.

Great Expectations (Wisehouse Classics - with the original Illustrations by John McLenan 1860)

GREAT EXPECTATIONS is Charles Dickens' thirteenth novel and his penultimate completed novel; a bildungsroman which depicts the personal growth and personal development of an orphan nicknamed Pip. It is Dickens's second novel, after David Copperfield, to be fully narrated in the first person. The novel was first published as a serial in Dickens's weekly periodical All the Year Round, from 1 December 1860 to August 1861. In October 1861, Chapman and Hall published the novel in three volumes.

It is set among marshes in Kent, and in London, in the early to mid-1800s, and contains some of Dickens' most memorable scenes, including the opening, in a graveyard, where the young Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch. GREAT EXPECTATIONS is full of extreme imagery -poverty; prison ships and chains, and fights to the death-and has a colorful cast of characters who have entered popular culture. Dickens's themes include wealth and poverty, love and rejection, and the eventual triumph of good over evil. GREAT EXPECTATIONS is popular both with readers and literary critics, and has been translated into many languages, and adapted numerous times into various media.

Upon its release, the novel received near universal acclaim. Thomas Carlyle spoke disparagingly of "all that Pip's nonsense". Later, George Bernard Shaw praised the novel, as "All of one piece and consistently truthful." During the serial publication, Dickens was pleased with public response to GREAT EXPECTATIONS and its sales; when the plot first formed in his mind, he called it "a very fine, new and grotesque idea."

LEGEND OF THE LAST VIKINGS - Free Alternate Ending

In 1066 upon the death of Edward the Confessor, Harald Hadraada, King of Norway challenged for the crown of England, claiming it was his through his bloodline. He led a large force of over 400 longships to England and after a few initial victories was defeated during the Battle of Stamford Bridge, near York, by Harold Goodwinson. Only 24 longships returned to Norway.

Two weeks later Harold Goodwinson and his army, exhausted by the forced-march from York to Hastings, were defeated William the Conqueror. And the rest they say is history. Or is it?

Questions remain. What happened to the Vikings after Stamford Bridge? Where did they go? What did they do?

Well Legend of the Last Vikings is just one possibility..............

But why an Alternate Ending?

When I started researching the book, I was amazed to discover that the Silk Route was not just one route, but instead a whole network of routes reaching from Eastern Europe and criss-crossing Asia. As such I had to decide which of these routes my characters would travel along. Before I could make this decision I had to research the routes. In doing so I found so much fascinating information on each, trying to decide which route to "travel" was not easy. Even though I eventually settled upon a route, I did not want to waste potential stories so decided to write an alternate ending which in effect gives the reader a two-for-one.

Synopsis Chapters 1 - 33

I was going to give a summary of the chapters 1 to 33 but have decided that too much action, adventure, character building and meaning would be lost in doing so, so I have kept this to a minimum by providing the following synopsis.

On returning home to Norway after defeat at Stamford Bridge in 1066AD, our hero, Ulf Uspakson, herald to King Harald Hadraada, realises an era is over. Then he remembers the story of a Swedish Viking Adventurer, Yngvar Vittfarne (Yngvar the Far Travelled), who went missing on a journey to the East and in a last fling of youth decides to try and trace him - somewhere on the Silk Route. No easy task!

The alternate ending starts at Chapter 34 with the conclusion of the adventure in China's Taklamakan desert - or is it?

After leaving Shanguo and crossing the Tien Shan mountains, the crew, as I affectionately call this motley group, follow the course of the Jaxartes River (Syr Darya) to the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan. They then cross the Karakum and Barsuki deserts, they loop around the top of the Aral sea. Approaching Astrakhan from the North East, they are tired and weary after such an arduous journey. As always trouble awaits and the crew will have to summon physical and mental strength from reserves hidden deep within themselves.

He was a completely normal neighbour on the outside. But inside? I was the only one who knew what went on in there. I've sat below this open window for years listening to the enjoyment of the scandalous women he takes home each weekend.

I couldn't help but play with myself as I listened. I enjoyed getting off before hitting the town with Sarah. She was a little more adventurous than I was, and we usually went our separate ways, but not tonight. Tonight, she would bring me along on one of her sexcapades.

My cravings became much more real after that night. Sarah wasn't around this weekend to help me satisfy them, so I decided to find out exactly what happened on the other side of my neighbour's window...

Starshine: Aurora Rising: Book One: Volume 1

SPACE IS VAST AND UNTAMED, AND IT HOLDS MANY SECRETS. "Now two individuals from opposite ends of settled space are on a collision course with the darkest of those secrets, even as the world threatens to explode around them." The year is 2322. Humanity has expanded into the stars, inhabiting over 100 worlds across a third of the galaxy. Though thriving as never before, they have discovered neither alien life nor the key to utopia. Earth struggles to retain authority over far-flung planets and free-wheeling corporations while an uneasy armistice with a breakaway federation hangs by a thread as the former rebels rise in wealth and power. Alexis Solovy is Earth Alliance royalty, her father a fallen war hero and her mother an influential military leader. But she seeks only the freedom of space and has made a fortune by reading the patterns in the chaos to discover the hidden wonders of the stars. Nothing about her latest objective suggests the secret it conceals will turn her life- not to mention the entire galaxy-upside down. But a chance encounter with a mysterious spy leads to a discovery which will thrust Alex into the middle of a galactic power struggle and a sinister conspiracy, whether she likes it or not. When faced with its greatest challenge, will humanity rise to triumph, or fall to ruin? "Aurora Rising" is an epic tale of galaxy-spanning adventure, of the thrill of discovery and the unquenchable desire to reach ever farther into the unknown. It's a tale of humanity at its best and worst, of love and loss, of fear and heroism. It's the story of a woman who sought the stars and found more than anyone imagined possible.

Werecat: The Rearing

A finalist in the 2016 Romance Review Readers' Choice Awards!

For Jacks Dowd, a college senior who feels ungrounded from his family and life in general, an alcohol and sex-infused weekend in Montreal sounds like a pretty good escape. His Spring Break binge takes a detour when he meets Benoit, an admiring drifter with startling green eyes. A hook-up turns into a day, two days, and then a full week in Benoit's hostel, making love and scarfing down take-out food. But at the end of the week, Benoit demands that Jacks make an impossible choice: stay with him forever, or go back to college and never see him again.

There's something dangerous about Benoit, but Jacks has fallen for him brutally. The night before Jacks is supposed to return to college, he finds Benoit in Mont Royal Park, where they first met, to try to work things out. Benoit springs on Jacks an unfathomable secret: he's a mythical creature, half man and half jungle panther. He traps Jacks in an abandoned cabin and performs an occult rite so they will be mated forever.

About the series

The 'A Poor Man at the Gate' series follows the fortunes of young Englishman Tom Andrews, a petty smuggler turned 'pirate' and his friend Joseph Star, a part-Carib freed slave.

They settle in industrial Lancashire at the beginning of the first great industrial boom; as unscrupulous businessmen they quickly become very rich. Wealth allows Tom to buy a landed estate where he hopes to be accepted by the local aristocratic families. This expansive and meticulously-researched historical saga tells of Tom and Joseph's triumphs and disasters as they aspire to create powerful dynasties to rival any in England.

The Legacy Human (Singularity #1): Volume 1 (Singularity Series)

What would you give to live forever? Seventeen-year-old Elijah Brighton wants to become an ascender-a post-Singularity human/machine hybrid-after all, they're smarter, more enlightened, more compassionate, and above all, achingly beautiful. But Eli is a legacy human, preserved and cherished for his unaltered genetic code, just like the rainforest he paints. When a fugue state possesses him and creates great art, Eli miraculously lands a sponsor for the creative Olympics. If he could just master the fugue, he could take the gold and win the right to ascend, bringing everything he's yearned for within reach... including his beautiful ascender patron. But once Eli arrives at the Games, he finds the ascenders are playing games of their own. Everything he knows about the ascenders and the legacies they keep starts to unravel... until he's running for his life and wondering who he truly is. When immortality is the prize, winning the Game is all that matters. The Legacy Human is the first in Susan Kaye Quinn's new young adult science fiction series that explores the intersection of mind, body, and soul in a post-Singularity world... and how technology will challenge us to remember what it means to be human.
