ROMANCE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE: The Cowboy’s Virgin (Western BBW First Time Romance) (Arranged Marriage New Adult Romance)

by Ava Walsh

He asked if he could kiss me. Who does that?

After her dad died, curvy 19-year-old Lauren Jones is ready for a change. Taking up her best friend Jane’s offer, she moves from Atlanta to a small village in Colorado to live with Jane and her boyfriend. They seem very happy, but Lauren’s decided that love just isn’t for her.

Too bad that Jane’s a notorious matchmaker.

Cole Harmon is a cowboy who looks exactly like Lauren’s favorite actor, Dermot Mulroney. He always hangs around Jane and Adam’s house so he’s hard to avoid. His lean muscles, tight abs and the V that disappears into those worn jeans are sending hot flashes through Lauren’s body, even though she’s determined she’s not on the market.

But when Lauren gets to know Cole better and hears about what happened to him, she realizes that she could develop feelings for this cowboy with a wounded heart.

There’s just something about a cowboy, isn’t there?

Slowly but surely, Lauren finds herself falling in love with the village and the cowboy. Is it too soon to want him? What will he say when he finds out she’s still a virgin and doesn’t know what she’s doing? Can she find room in her heart as she makes a new start for herself?

NOTE: This book includes bonus stories!

This is a 9,000-word stand-alone story with an HEA, so no cliff-hangers! It includes stargazing, hot cowboys and steamy love scenes and is definitely intended for 18+ readers.

Hitler’s Legacy – The Dialogues

by Joseph Appel

This work of historical fiction is written as a series of dialogues from the stand point of both supporters and survivors of the Nazi party after the events of WWII. In it, Joe Appel works to bring a human picture of the motivations and consequences of that often de-humanized era. Rather than looking at historical documents in the cold light of reason, this book portrays the circumstances as they would have been experienced in the eyes of the people involved.

The debates between the interviewer and the historical figures are often heated and penetrating. It is Joe’s hope that these dialogues will bring life to these characters, characters so often framed in black and white. Only through the living experience of those involved can the motives behind the Nazi party be explored, exposed, and resolved.

The Three Elizabeths: Early Australians

by Suzanne David

In the spring of 1813 a bewildered young woman stepped off the ship she had been traveling in for 209 days. It was the end of a grim journey and the beginning of a new life. Elizabeth Manning, well born and well educated, had been wrongly convicted of theft. The result was seven years transportation to the prison colony in New South Wales. Elizabeth’s life changed when she achieved the status of being an emancipated convict and became the governess to the younger children of Elizabeth Macarthur, the wife of an important but troublesome land owner, John Macarthur.

Elizabeth Macquarie is the wife of the new Governor of New South Wales, Lachlan Macquarie, a dour Scotsman, whose vision for the future of the colony is at odds with those of John Macarthur and many of the existing population.

The three women are strong women who have great influence, and use their power and status to advise, guide and encourage those in the Sydney community who need their support.



Arnival’s Adventures. Part 1. Lucky Sword.

by Valery Hrykyan

As a child I often dreamt of being a knight (I guess many boys did) and doing the chivalrous things – defending the weak, accomplishing feats in the name of ladylove and so on. First of all my gorgeous wife and then some of these childhood dreams gave me a lot of inspiration for the story.

The book tells about adventures of a young knight called Arnival. He is a poor a knight, who is in love with the daughter of a king’s cousin. His home country Vivania was attacked by hostile neighbours and is in desperate need of great warriors. The war will be a harsh trial not only of Arnival’s strength and bravery, but also of his brain. How does he manage?

Please feel free to read a couple extracts from the book:

Extract 1.

“Who is responsible for the night patrols, and why did this movement escape the notice of the duty guards?”

“Your Majesty, the area between our armies was overgrown with bushes, and it was impossible to see anything in the dark,” the Count of Zilier explained.

“Give him twenty lashes to improve his eyesight and hearing!” shouted the king.

“But Sir, I am a noblemanâ?¦”

“Not any more! I am confiscating your property and adding it to the royal domain!” Rogvan replied in a fit of uncontrollable rage.

Later, when he had cooled down and realised that such a punishment could harm the morale and the loyalty of the other vassals, the king changed his orders. However, the Count of Zilier still harboured a grudge against his sovereign and decided to take his revenge at the first available opportunity. He was sure that the war would provide him with such a chance.

Extract 2.

Frowning, the Duke of Mazène looked at the envoys. In spite of his noble background, he despised etiquette and always said what he was thinking, without mincing his words.

“So, you scoundrels, have you come to ask for peace?” he snarled at the men from Lotré.

“Your Grace, we are noblemen. Why are you speaking to us in this manner?” they stammered in response.

“Where was your nobility when you attacked us with those Prennian mongrels? Have you sold it to someone?” the Duke of Mazène went on yelling. “We’ve had a peace agreement for ten years. Or has your memory gone the same way as your nobility?”

“The Duke of Lotré asked us to tell you that there has been a misunderstanding.”

“What has your duke misunderstood? That attacking someone else’s town is a violation of the peace agreement? Don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes!”

“Our master is proposing some termsâ?¦”

“What? You dare to suggest me some terms? I see that you Lotressans have lost your conscience as well! I will be the one dictating the terms!”
