Dangerous
Secrets Book 1 
 
When
everything is taken from you, all you have left is what comes
next… 

 

The
perfect career became the perfect nightmare. Now the only solution is
for Colton Paine to leave his life behind to enter the Witness
Security Program. Though he has many regrets, abandoning Savana
Wyler, just as she’s entering remission from cancer—and before he
has a chance to tell her he loves her—rips his heart out. But
Colton will do whatever it takes to protect her, even leave
forever. 

 

Relocated
to a tiny northern Washington tourist town, Colton fights to regain
his footing in a new life constructed of lies. Haunted by thoughts of
Savana, he breaks the rules and keeps track of her. When the same
people who want him dead appear on Savana’s news broadcasts, it
becomes clear leaving wasn’t the answer.

 

Convinced
Savana is left unprotected, Colton abandons WitSec in a desperate
attempt to save her. But did his impetuous actions endanger them
both?

 

Tomorrow
was never more uncertain.

Thirty-four year old Vicki Laramie must learn to trust before she can love, but she might die trying.
 

While Vicki’s children grapple with the death of their father — a man whom she’s successfully fabricated as loving, a lie her rebellious teenager recognizes — she must find a way to support her family and find a role model for her boys. 


She never intends to fall for Staff Sergeant Chase, her best friend’s son, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She’d much rather choose a safer man to love, but her children have a voice in the decision she makes. 


With two deaths to deal with, a suitor after her money, a rebellious son, and Sergeant Chase’s repeated attacks, she can only hope to survive the danger she faces. If she doesn’t, her children will be left without either parent.

Snippet:
My heart raced. I hadn’t heard a car or even footsteps on the porch. The visitor had caught me unawares. I answered the door, opening it no more than six inches, the security chain in place.
Kelly stood in the amber glow of the porch light. The purple scarf and gloves he had borrowed in hand. I found myself staring, captured by the honey brown of his eyes.
It required considerable effort to pull my gaze from his smoldering eyes. I cleared my throat in a genteel manner to mask the effort. A foray of butterflies flip-flopped within my stomach. Couldn’t he turn it off for even a minute? I knew he had at the restaurant. There I’d experienced his cool regard from a distance. The animal magnetism seemed a better choice.
I glanced over my shoulder at the glittering tree lights, bidding them deference until later.

The only answer to this dilemma and any future ones would be shooting her dad

Evie lives an idealic lifestyle until she travels to Seattle. Here she believes her dreams can flourish. 
 
But will her love save her when she is involved in a riding misfortune?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
Snippet:
The only answer to this dilemma and any future ones would be shooting her dad. Evie couldn’t do it any more than she could run from the life around her. Dad had his own ideas of how to manipulate her life and he’d been semi-successful doing it for twenty-three years. In all honesty his manipulating help had proved welcome since high school but not this evening, aside from his invitation to dinner. When the doorbell rang, Dad continued his phone conversation and Mom had her hands full with preparing food, leaving her to play the part of hostess, or at the very least, door-woman.
 
Evie sighed in resignation and answered the door. Her heart jumped to her throat before plummeting at death-defying speed to the pit of her stomach. Justin Lyman, more alluring than he had been in high school, stood on the other side of the screen door. Frozen legs preempted her thought for flight, possibly compounded by the knowledge of him being the fastest runner in town, especially when dodging a linebacker intent on bringing him to the ground. Yes, shooting Dad seemed the easier choice.

The world didn’t end in fire and explosions…

Lying
in Ruins
Fate’s Vultures #1
by Jami Gray
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic
Romantic Suspense 
 

In a world gone to
hell, it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad…

The world didn’t end in
fire and explosions, instead it collapsed slowly, like falling
dominoes, an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild
weather and collapsing economies, until what remained of humanity
battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
Charity
uses lethal survival skills learned too early in her work as a
‘Hound, sniffing out pivotal secrets for one of the most powerful
people on the west coast. Her work is deceptive, deadly, and best
performed solo, which means when she has a run-in with a member of
the notorious Fate’s Vultures, she has no intention of joining forces
in some mockery of teamwork. The man might be sexy as hell, but she
travels alone. She will accomplish her mission and she will settle a
score – hopefully with the edge of her blade. But fate has other
plans.
As
one of Fate’s Vultures, a nomadic band of arbitrators known for
their ruthless verdicts, Ruin witnesses the carnage of corruption and
greed battering the remnants of humanity, and he bears the scars to
prove it. Now he has a damn ‘Hound showing up in suspicious
circumstances, leaving every cell of his body sceptical – and
painfully aroused. The woman is trouble, and Ruin has every intention
of steering clear. But when they realise they have a common enemy,
Charity and Ruin will have to set aside their distrust if they want
to achieve their mutual goal – justice and revenge.
Sometimes,
when the world’s gone to hell, it’s better to stick with the devil
you know…

Secrets?
Stockholm
Sleuth Series Book 2
by
Christer Tholin
Genre:
Mystery Crime Thriller
 

“Dammit!
She’d made a huge mistake. She’d never make it out of here – they
were going to kill her.”

 

 

In
the crime novella SECRETS?, fledgling private investigator Elin
Bohlander takes on what looks like an easy assignment — at first:
to determine if her client’s boyfriend is having an affair with
another woman. To do this, Elin follows him to a secluded cabin in
the woods, where she soon discovers that what’s actually
transpiring is stranger than anyone thought. Having ventured too far,
she’s stumbled upon a hornet’s nest and put her life at risk. But
it’s too late. Can Elin win the unequal fight against a gang of
brutal child molesters?


 

SECRETS? is the second, standalone
book from Christer Tholin’s 
Stockholm
Sleuth Series
.
In the previous novel VANISHED?, Elin and her colleague Lars solve
their first case together.

 

If you like fast-paced action and
surprising twists and turns, then you will love Christer Tholin’s
sleuth series.

To
come to terms with his recent divorce, Martin, an attorney in Berlin,
plans a peaceful vacation – two weeks in a Swedish summer house

two weeks will change his life forever. He takes a liking to Liv, a
Swedish woman whom he meets in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, they
don’t get to have their first date – Liv disappears under
mysterious circumstances. Martin begins his search but soon realizes
he can’t find Liv in a foreign country by himself. He hires two
private investigators, and their discoveries make everything seem
even stranger. 

 

The
complexities in this suspenseful criminal case lead to a hunt across
Sweden. Martin comes close to finding answers, but his search lands
him in very real danger, eventually leading to the first deaths. Soon
he‘s wondering if he can get Liv and himself out of this situation
alive.

The
author grew up in the North of Germany, Schleswig-Holstein. Today, he
lives together with his family in Stockholm, Sweden, where he works

Already
for ages he has been a great fan of crime stories and therefore, had
the desire to write his own crime story with the characters acting in
Sweden. This crime-fiction is now available under the title
“Vanished?”.

 

The
crime novel starts at a slower pace – like Martin’s holidays, but the
tension goes up more and more. It comes to a number of surprising
turns giving new impulses to the story. Apart from that, the lovely
country Sweden is described with the view of a foreigner.

Meow for Murder
A
Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery #2
by
Bethany Blake
Genre:
Cozy Mystery
 
Even
an experienced pet sitter like Daphne Templeton can be fooled by
animal behavior: how can an adorably tiny fuzz ball named Tinkleston
be capable of sudden flying leaps with cat claws bared? But human
behavior remains even more mysterious, especially when Tinkleston’s
owner is murdered on the night of a gala fundraiser for Fur-ever
Friends Pet Rescue.
Accompanied
by her unflappable basset hound, Socrates, Daphne plans to take
charge of Tinks the Terror and leave the crime-solving to handsome
detective Jonathan Black. But while luring the prickly Persian out of
hiding, she uncovers clues that might take suspicion off her own
mother. Maeve Templeton already has a reputation as a killer—in
real estate. How far would she go to bag Sylvan Creek’s most
coveted property, the Flynt Mansion?
To
expose the truth, Daphne finds herself donning a deranged clown
costume on an autumnal adventure that might just be crazy enough to
work—if it doesn’t get her killed.

My review *****

I found Dial Meow for Murder by Bethany Blake the most interesting book I have read lately. It has all kinds of quirky characters that keep you interested and alert to what will happen next. It’s a pet’s lover Eden and a fantastic story to keep you warm on a winter day. Dial Meow for Murder is a story to be read by teens and adults alike. The writing is clean and wholesome. I enjoyed the story and the telling and recommend it to anyone who likes to read clean murder mysteries. It will become your and your family’s favorite story.

Dial Meow for Murder is the story of Daphne a pet lover and chef. She likes to cook for humans and for their pets and both love her concoctions. She has two special friends, a detective, Jonathan Black, and a surf guy by the name of Dylan. The one wants to protect her even from herself and the other wants her to go somewhere over the rainbow and be free with him.

Her life seems normal, with her sister, friend and mother who keep her busy…that is until she finds the first dead body in the mysterious Flint Mansion and a skeleton woman starts stalking her. Dial Meow for Murder by Bethany Blake is a great murder mystery.

 
Bethany
Blake lives in a small, quaint town in Pennsylvania with her husband
and three daughters. When she’s not writing, cooking for pets and
people or riding horses, she’s wrangling a menagerie of furry family
members that includes a nervous pit bull, a fearsome feline, a blind
goldfish, and an attack cardinal named Robert. Like Daphne Templeton,
the heroine of her Lucky Paws Mysteries, Bethany holds a Ph.D. and
operates a pet sitting business called Barkley’s Premium Pet Care.

Someone has decided to become the moral compass for the women in town, and now they’re turning up dead. It will be up to Detective Lacy Pratt to find their killer before her relationship with Declan Matthews, brother to one of the victims,

Snippet:
Shadows darkened the path. Branches hovered above him, some with
lingering leaves, others bare.
“Taking a stroll, Matthews?” Lacy’s voice cut through the quiet.
He turned to see her walking toward him, her hands in the pockets
of her black jacket.
“Trying to clear my head.”
“And this is where you chose?” she asked as she came to stand next
to him.
“I have more good memories here than bad ones.”
A smile formed on her lips, though it didn’t match her eyes, which
were dark and tired. “I assume when you grew up here, there weren’t as many
people on this path running.”
He shook his head. “Lot more trees, less traffic. It was
secluded.”
Reaching her hand out to him, she touched his arm. “I remember.”
Declan slid a glance to her hand. “What a time, huh?”
She moved her hand down until it gripped his. “You might not
believe it, but I think of it fondly. It was hard to settle in here, to move on
from what happened to my family. You helped me settle, Matthews.”

 

He felt that unraveling feeling move over him again, with her hand
holding his. Perhaps that’s what caused him to pull her to him, embracing her
tightly as he warded off the rush of pain that attacked him.

I
have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write
both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many
influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not
help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa
Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura
Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list
by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my
desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my
dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my six year
old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs and a handful
of chickens. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty
of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my
laptop and coffee close by.

Internal battles, dirty politics, and sinister secrets

Case: 0
Annalise Storm Chronicles Book 1
by May Freighter
Genre: Dystopian Mystery, Romantic
Suspense
It’s
the year 2330. At the end of the twenty-second century, the human
race has divided into two distinct groups—purebloods and the
‘modded’. Those who are unfortunate enough to be genetically
modified are now nothing but servants for their pureblooded
masters.

 

Living
in this time, you know your place, and you do not cross the line. So,
when a violent death occurs in the Bronze District, Annalise is
ordered to take this as her trial run at Divinity PD to prove that
she can do the job as a member of the Human Possession
Department. 


 

To
defy her father’s wish to marry her off, and keep her Chief happy,
she is determined to solve this murder by any means necessary—even
if it means going to districts she has only read about in textbooks
and fighting her forbidden feelings for her servant.


 

With
internal battles, dirty politics, and sinister secrets, just how
exactly will Annalise solve her Case: 0? And more importantly, will
she live to see her next one?


Goodreads
* Amazon
Case: 1
Annalise Storm
Chronicles Book 2
It’s
official, Devlin is Annalise’s new partner. He’s charming,
caring—a perfect gentleman who caters to her every need. That is
until he starts to mix work with pleasure to convince her to marry
him as per agreement with her father.

 


With
her servant, Mavel, gone from her side, the cracks in the wall she
created around her begin to come undone. To take her mind off the
torment her heart is going through, she takes on another possession
case in her old school, Montgomery Institute. But, what starts off as
a simple case full of bad memories twists into a web of deception and
lies involving everyone she cares about.

What can we expect from you in the future?

That’s a tough question. I love writing with all my heart. It brings me joy to give life to my characters and tell their stories. It always makes me happy to see my readers enjoying the works I’ve created, too.

So far, my goal is to write 100 books I’m satisfied with. In these past ten months, I’ve released seven and have three more to go before the end of the year. Afterwards, I believe I will slow down to 2-3 books a year as I will have to write books from scratch again instead of releasing the material I’ve already written over the past three years.

To answer the question, hopefully, I won’t be buried under a mountain of other pen names out there. I have a lot of stories to tell and look forward to finding new readers.

 

Tell us about a favourite character from a book.

I love Watson from Sherlock Holmes. People often think that Sherlock is the one who should get the trophy, and he is the main character in his own right, but Watson managed to become a friend to such an oddball and still not pick up any of Sherlock’s bad habits or addictions. He can easily stand on his own, protects those he loves and cares about, and he is a good friend. What else can you want in an awesome character?

 

Describe your writing style.

Every author’s writing style changes and morphs throughout their career. It can depend on many factors such as what they’re reading at the time, their feelings, thoughts, emotions, heartbreak. I don’t believe my writing style has yet stabilised. I know that I have my own voice in my works. My stories often talk about life and the choices we make, prejudice, love and hate, being backed into a corner, manipulation, greed, lies and deceit, etc. There is also some of my philosophy hidden between the lines.

 

What makes a good story?

Mystery. A story without something hidden or kept from the reader until the very last pages makes for a boring read in my opinion. I even left an “Easter egg” of sorts in Helena Hawthorn series. I often wonder if someone will catch on to it or not.

 

A day in the life of the author?

I think I’m expected to say something like: “I wake up every morning and write 5,000 words. Then I have some food and write some more.” In my case, that’s not entirely true. It depends on the day. Some days, I can wake up early, get my fill of green tea and something to digest while I dive into the story I’m working on. My word count typically varies between 1,000-5,000 words a day. If I’ve not written for a few days or weeks, the word count is ridiculously low but does increase with each passing day.

Then there are days when I’m faced with edits of my book and want to pull my hair out. Staring at the MS of 100,000 words and wondering why on earth I wound up writing so much! Life would spare me so much stress and grey hair if a magical fairy turned my books into readily edited and proofed manuscripts when I went to sleep.

I think the most common denominator of every day is being alone. Sure, I have a lot of emails to respond to or messages on FB to reply to, but human interaction is greatly limited in my case. It gets very lonely, so I am glad I don’t live alone. If I did, I would most likely go crazy.

 

Advice they would give new authors?
Don’t slack off on marketing. Marketing helps with exposure of your work. If you abandon it after a week or a month, your sales will dry up and so will the attention your book receives.

If you get a bad review, don’t let it get you down. Each bad review will sting less and less until you grow so used to them that you won’t have to worry about them too much. Not everyone is going to love your work. It’s the reality we must accept. But, the first 1-3 bad reviews can really upset authors and keep them from writing more stories. Some authors I know stay away from reading their reviews because they stress them to the point where they can’t focus on work.

 

What are you currently reading?

Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I thought getting into the classics may be a nice change of pace and give me some new ideas.

 

How long have you been writing?

Since 2012, but the first time I published was in October 2016.

Bestselling
author Richard Bard returns with his highly rated 
Brainrush thriller

new bioweapon that threatens the soul of every mother in
America.

When
a freak accident gave Jake Bronson near-superhuman mental powers and
landed his loved ones in the crosshairs of an Islamic terrorist, the
only way out was with guns blazing. But Jake was unable to put a stop
to his nightmares or his murderous nemesis, Luciano Battista, in that

minions have brought the fight to American soil–along with the most
terrifying bioweapon that has ever threatened the free world. They
demand vengeance, and Jake’s family and friends are caught in the
crossfire.

California’s beaches and Mexico’s deserts to the depths of a raging
underground river and the treacherous Venezuelan jungle, Jake and his

hidden past.
After
waking up with amnesia from a six-year coma, Jake Bronson’s past is
lost to him. But that doesn’t mean the past hasn’t been looking for
him–or that it will let him live when it finally catches up.

Jake’s
placid, anonymous life in Italy is shattered by the arrival of an
assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him–and he has no idea
why he’s in their crosshairs. He’s saved only when an American
scientist intervenes, wielding strange technology that briefly
reactivates Jake’s dormant memories and deadly skills. As unknown
enemies continue to hound Jake’s every step, the scientist helps him
reconnect with lost friends and loved ones who believed him long
dead.

Any
happy reunion is forfeit, though, as Jake’s murky history and
mysterious talents conceal a terrible secret that–should it fall
into the wrong hands–could trigger the extinction of the human race.
Averting this apocalypse means Jake must risk everything to reawaken
his true self and stop an ancient order from unleashing humanity’s
ultimate judgment.

A
gifted boy forced to grow up too fast… A father who will do
anything to protect him… A madman bent on destroying them both.

In
Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a
cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual
consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his
brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to
infiltrate the world’s most secure networks. But the scientific
advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are
slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast
foundation–who may die before realizing his dream of
immortality–and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at
nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.

Caught
in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex,
whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the
impasse.

When
Jake’s family and closest friends are simultaneously abducted in a
globally coordinated kidnapping scheme, he races across two
continents before uncovering the first clue to their whereabouts,
unaware that his hostage son and teenage siblings crash-landed in the
jungles of South China, where they must find every ounce of their
courage and wits to survive the wilds and escape the ruthless drug
lord who is hot on their heels. Can a seven-year-old boy learn to
kill to save his family?

successful 
Brainrush thriller
series, now unleashes the heart-pounding series finale in a two-book
ride that will take your breath away.
Jake
Bronson’s family and friends are mourning him. They’d watched as he
sacrificed himself so their lives could return to normal. But normal
wasn’t to be. The megalomaniac whom Jake had killed during his
suicide assault left a legacy of videos that damn Jake and everyone
associated with him, leading to a price being put on their heads,
dead or alive. They go to ground, unaware their every move is being
tracked by a new breed of young, tech-savvy jihadists about to
unleash vengeance on America’s homeland–with Jake’s family and the
unsuspecting citizens of Los Angeles in their crosshairs.

As
the jaws of the terrorist trap begin to close, Jake’s eight-year-old
son, Alex, faces a threat of his own. He carries a deadly secret that
endangers the world, and now that his father is dead, Alex is the
only one who can deal with it. He slips away to heed the call of
unearthly visions that demand his presence, and his journey draws him
to the back alleys of Bogota, Columbia, where he encounters a group
of terminally ill orphans. One of their siblings has been abducted by
child traffickers. Alex can’t ignore their cry for help, and the
unlikely alliance plans a nothing-to-lose rescue mission that has
little chance of success.

But
the bloodthirsty outcry against Alex’s family and friends reaches
beyond those who wish them harm, as do the visions that reveal their
dark secrets to Alex. Help is on the way…

along the shores of the Mississippi—have finally been unearthed,
years after they disappeared. He remembers every satisfying kill . .
. each woman’s terror and agony. But there’s only one he truly
wanted. And fate has brought her within reach again . . .
He Knows You

Everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one

Thursday, September 7th, 2017
THE
FORGER
Elite
Crimes Unit #2
by
Michele Hauf

 

Genre: Romantic Suspense


Pub
Date: 8/8/2017
 

 

Olivia
Lawson’s bosses at Scotland Yard don’t take her work very
seriously. Art and antiquities? Bor-ing! But her latest
investigation, at London’s world-renowned Tate, is turning out to
be far more explosive than anyone expected. In fact, the vandalized,
booby-trapped painting hanging on the gallery wall would have blown
her off her feet if it wasn’t for the tall, dark-haired stranger
who tackled her at the last second—a stranger as finely sculpted as
any masterpiece in the museum.
Ethan
Maxwell is working this case for the Elite Crimes Unit because it was
a choice between that and lockup. A (barely) reformed art forger,
he’s got the expertise to lead Olivia through a dangerous manhunt.
But the crime may have a more personal connection to him—and the
all-too-real feelings he’s developing toward Olivia could pull her
into the line of fire too . . .

 

THE
THIEF
Elite
Crimes Unit #1
 
The
Elite Crimes Unit works behind the scenes of Interpol—and employs
some of the world’s most talented criminal minds. Because as
everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one
. . .
The
old farmhouse in the French countryside is a refuge for former jewel
thief Josephine Deveraux. Admittedly, there aren’t many men in the
vicinity, but she has her cat to cuddle up with. It’s a far cry
from her former life, constantly running from the law, and she’s
enjoying her peace . . . until the intruder in the three-piece suit
tackles her. He wants her back in the game, helping with a heist—and
he’s not above making threats to get his way.
Little
does Josephine know that notorious—and notoriously charming—thief,
Xavier Lambert, is after the very same 180-carat prize she’s being
blackmailed to steal. To his chagrin, he’s doing it not as a free
agent, but as a member of the Elite Crimes Unit—the team he was
forced to join when his brilliant career came to a sudden end. And
little does Xavier know that his comeback is about to include a
stranger’s kiss, a stinging slap, and a hunt for missing
treasure—along with the infuriatingly sexy woman who’s outfoxing
him . . .
