They are also protecting their eight year old sister, Page, and will do anything to keep her safe.

The brothers decide that Reagan and Haley need help with being kept safe as well, and as a group they set off to find the Zombie-free utopia Reagan is dreaming of.

Zombies are a daily problem, constantly threatening the lives of their group, but they’re not the only peril on the journey ahead. Militia groups of power hungry men are also a constant concern. And settlements of paranoid, suspicious people turn out to be just as hazardous.

Danger looms over every inch of the way, but Reagan, Haley and the Parkers are determined to get to their goal and remain together. Soon the Parkers become more to Reagan than just traveling companions and more than friendship starts to develop between her and Hendrix, the second oldest brother.

But at the end of the world, nothing can be as simple as life and death. Now, Reagan is going to have to schedule falling in love between hunting and surviving. Hopefully she can last long enough to find out if true love can still exist when everything else has started to fall apart.

But the killer isn’t exactly human.

A tenuous, tender friendship quickly evolves into something powerful and passionate they cannot wish away or control.

Sally of Monticello Founding Mother

by N.M. Ledgin

Teenaged Sally Hemings, mixed-race slave and sister-in-law to widower Thomas Jefferson, captured his heart while serving his daughters in Paris where he was U.S. Minister.

It was there a 38-year relationship began.

The historical novel, Sally of Monticello: Founding Mother, by Jefferson lecturer N.M. Ledgin, portrays a bright, assertive woman. She resolved his “inner conflict,” according to historian Winthrop D. Jordan, by ridding him of “high tension concerning women and Negroes.”

Ledgin based the novel’s timeline on Jefferson’s precise recordkeeping and collection of letters. Controversy over the affair and over recent DNA findings continues to fuel books and articles.

Sally decided voluntarily to return with Jefferson from slavery-free France to Virginia. They had several children who went free, and they left a mixed-race legacy now woven into the fabric of the nation.

This novel is an illuminating take on history. It is filled with emotion and adventure in the voice of a self-educated, sacrificing woman, whose passionate love and devotion helped guide one of our founding fathers.

Greek Romance – Very Sensual

by Chris Johns

WARNING:  If Man on Man Sex offends you, DO NOT read this book. Otherwise, enjoy! Sebastian is in a dreamy state of mind. He really is inside his dream, or so he thought.

There are two beautiful Greek youths welcoming him and preparing his body for their master. They bathe him and shave him clean. He looks into the mirror and is astonished by how beautiful he is now.

He then meets the master and is being offered sexually. With this beautiful godly master, Sebastian had the greatest orgasm of his life. Then, he wakes up.

It was all just a dream! But as he looks at himself in the mirror, something’s different… He’s shaved! He looks exactly the way he saw himself in the mirror in his dream. How could it be?

He keeps himself calm, hoping to find some explanation. But as he takes his History class that day with his secretly admired teacher, Tom, he gets even more confused. Teacher Tom is wearing a breech cloth like the Greeks and similar to that in his dream!

Something weird is going on and Sebastian can’t wait to figure it out…

This story is also known as “Sebastian’s Dream”

“We are going to be talking about the ancient Greeks today. I am dressed in the everyday dress of a Greek youth. For the remainder of this week’s lectures I will wear the different attire you might expect to see if you could go back in time to that period. Before any of you make the suggestion, I will not be dressing as a Greek athlete because as I am sure many of you know they were kept mostly naked, only occasionally being allowed to wear a breech cloth. I do however have two volunteers from another college that will appear in breech cloths for tomorrow’s lectures.”

Lots of ribald comments and Tom rode it looking at Sebastian all the time. When it calmed down, Tom spoke again.

“I don’t remember telling you on Friday about today’s subject but I am delighted to see that Mr. Cornell has entered into the spirit of this period. Sebastian, you could easily dress the same as me, or as a Greek youth and pass muster.”
Seb blushed and his classmates applauded and yelled, “Way to go Seb.”

Shit Kickers & Stilettos (Heiresses In Aprons)

by Rita Sawyer

Rosie’s uncle Teddy may not have been able to be around all the time, but he was always there when Rosie needed a dose of reality. Unlike her parents he believed that she needed to keep her feet on the ground even though she spent most of her time running charity and social events mingling with people who had their heads stuck in the clouds. When he dies she’s lost. Her friends try to be there for her, but her uncle does the unbelievable and leaves her part of his business. The other half he leaves to his sexy right hand man. He requests that the two of them move into his house for six months and find a way to make things work together, but since all she can do is stare at his ass and find ways to push his buttons Rosie’s not sure if this is going to work out.

Dade Sebastian would do his best to honor his boss’s last wish, but just looking at his niece he knew it was going to be as simple as it sounded like it would be. Then the lawyer throws him a curve ball by announcing he’s not just going to help Rosie learn to run the business. Instead he’s is named as co-owner with the company being split equally between the two of them. Together they’re supposed to make things work, but that’s hard to do when all he wants is for her to stay in the kitchen, or better yet in his bed.

Her Dying Wish – Sexy Memories of an Erotic Romance – ADULT ONLY – Get it Now!

by Gregg Dean

  An undertaker finds a most unusual erotic letter in the hands of one of a deceased woman.

The undertaker was an old man, nearing retirement. One of the old school, he was confused by the changes even in his own form of employment where death was its single consistency. He found solace in that. That some things would never change and the familiarity of those things brought security. Eight days before his retirement he was making final adjustments to a recent tragic case. The woman was still young, at least by his standards, forty was still young. She was tall and elegant, even in death. Peering into the box where she was to sleep, he found petals strewn across her chest, and reaching in carefully picked them up from the woman. He removed them from the clutch bag she was holding and in doing so dislodged it from the woman’s hands where it opened.
He wasn’t keen on the clutch bag and tutted his disapproval. He preferred the dearly departed to depart empty handed. A person should leave the same way as they came in, save for clothing. Some decorum must be observed on these occasions. He tutted again; at best some religious token – a crucifix or a bible – was tolerable, but a clutch bag?
The deceased’s husband had insisted on it as this was the final wish of his late wife; to be buried with her clutch bag.
He tried closing the bag but a folded sheet of paper was caught in the catch.
He reasoned that the paper was probably a mundane item, an unpaid bill, a receipt from the dry cleaners, a tax demand. It was undignified for anyone to leave the world reminded of its more base aspects.
He unfolded the paper and placing a pair of gold-framed pince-nez over his bulbous nose, he scanned the document. It was a letter, some ten years old, presumably left in the clutch bag by accident. It was a good thing he had found it.
Making himself coffee he sat down and read it:

My dearest, precious Michelle, while I am so far from you I want you to hear my fantasy. I say fantasy but as you read it I am sure you will recognise the moments that have made our lives so special. Think of it as a fantasy patchwork. A fantasy made from patches of wonder and treasured moments.

Scorpio Moon

by Emmeline Costa-Wagner

Imagine you could change the course of history…

Imagine you could change someones heart…

Imagine you could move through space and time instantly…

Scorpio Moon is a contemporary romance thriller revolving around love, magic and time travel. The story is set on the east coast of South Africa in the subtropical city of Durban, during a time of great change.

The story is woven around the metaphysical journeys that the main male character, Luke Ross, experiences as a result of dark magic.

Luke has an overwhelming desire for adventure and danger. His innate power is fearlessness. The woman in his life, Maxine, goes to dangerous lengths in order to resolve her feelings of isolation and obsession. Her power is to evoke change through magic.

Maxine does not realize the full magnitude of a spell she performs. It corrupts their lives and twists their emotions to the brink of madness and Maxine is propelled into deeper isolation.

The spell is the complication that initiates the dark journeys which Luke experiences. His journey’s span the countries of Germany during WWII, future Langley in the USA as well as present day Durban, South Africa. Luke’s experiences in these countries are all interconnected by historical events.

Max and Luke are separated by time and space but united by their shared, desperate love, even when it is on the brink of collapse. Their story is one of real love overcoming seemingly insurmountable difficulties and gaining strength because of it.

Midnight (Knight Blood #1)

by Alexandra Lanc

Enter the thrilling urban fantasy world of the Knight Blood series, a set of novellas that explores a darkening world, where one person may make all the difference — for good, or for ill…
Life has always seemed impossible for IxBryn Rowan, and it’s about to get even more complicated.

IxBryn is a Knight Blood, an immortal human rendered by science to bring about harmony between the two races of Earth, the humans and the vampires — at least, that was the plan. A terrible tragedy occurred, and IxBryn is now the only surviving Knight, hunted for the potency of her blood, which will render any Immortal nearly unstoppable for a time.

With nowhere left to turn, IxBryn makes her way to Variance, the most prestigious and important City on Earth, to stay with her cousin Bristol, the only person alive who truly understands her, and in turn stumbles upon a secret war breeding within the shadows — a struggle in which she soon becomes the prize.

With danger at every turn, IxBryn may have to learn to rely on those who appear untrustworthy — even the labeled sociopath Zarrod Kingsbury, an Ancient vampire, and one of the Elite, who has interests of his own.

The first novella in the Knight Blood series, Midnight introduces readers to a parallel Earth, where vampires roam free, fate is never concrete, and where home can be found in the strangest of places.

Candida-The Making of The Princess of Darkness (Candida- The Making of The Princess of Darkness)

by Robert Meacham

The same energy Candida feels, I feel as I attempt to convey some reason-ability to her story.

Candida does this in a most powerful sway of realizing the truth of her desires and demands.
