The Devil’s Vial

by Byron Brumbaugh

The threat of global warming pushes some well-organized and very powerful people to scheme something drastic and lethal. Central to their plans is a small clear vial. These plans remain undiscovered until Richard Gregg, a convert to Buddhism struggling to apply what he’s learned to a westerner’s life, and four companions stumble across the conspiracy. Chased, shot at and beat-up, Richard and his friends know these powers-that-be are willing to kill to maintain secrecy and further their goals. Somehow, the conspirators must be found, along with what they are planning and how to stop them. A deadline approaches and whatever is done has to be done quickly, so options are limited. Throughout it all, Richard wants to remain true to his beliefs – most important, in every circumstance, he must act without violence and approach everything with compassion and loving kindness. It is not at all clear he will succeed.



Murder on the Candlelight Tour (Magnolia Mystery Wilmington Series Book 2)

by Ellen Elizabeth Hunter

It’s a dream come true for historic preservationist Ashley Wilkes: her restored Victorian house is on the Olde Wilmington by Candlelight tour. But her dream quickly turns nightmarish when a docent is murdered in the library, and her friend, history professor Binkie Higgins, is the likely suspect. As the bodies drop faster than dead needles off a dry Christmas tree, Ashley’s as busy as Santa’s elves: proving Binkie’s innocence, rescuing sister Melanie and a historic property from a ruthless developer. And, la-di-da, solving the Atlantic Coast Line’s 40 year old payroll robbery.

The Effect: Reality is changing!

by Remington Kane

From REMINGTON KANE
The Author of The TAKEN! Series & The TANNER Series
THE EFFECT: Reality is changing!

Noah Dobbs notices the changes, but assumes that his memory of things and events just isn’t as clear as he thought they were. However, when Noah begins seeing changes taking place in the world that he can’t explain, his search for answers leads him to, The Effect.

While most of the world remains oblivious to the changes taking place, there are others, like Noah, who are aware that reality is shifting.

The past is no longer written in stone and anything can happen.

Is time travel causing The Effect, or is it something, or someone, far more sinister?

Noah’s search for answers leads to more questions and The Effect is just the beginning.

The world will never be the same.

ENVY Deceptive Desires #1 (Romantic Suspense)

by Amarie Avant

He chose his family billions over their unborn child…

Raven Shaw once loved a boy so deeply and so fiercely that their separation sent her already tenuous hold on peace spiraling. A rough life topped by heartbreak is hardly the best way to begin motherhood, but with a babe on the way and Liam out of the picture, Raven is determined to be the best mother she could.
Liam Lemaître has a powerful family, and yet Raven once was his everything, and the only love he’d ever known. Deception drew them away from each other. Liam has realized that of all the material possessions he hasâ??and he has lotsâ??his assets honestly don’t add up to anything without Raven. Then suddenly, Raven stands before him, spitting fire and venom. And she has kept their child.
Two dynamic souls were kept apart by family and schemes far beyond their control. Can they somehow see past the lies and find themselves again? Will the truth set them free, or destroy their love forever?



Bull’s Eye Sniper Chronicles Collection (Betrayed Series Boxed set Book 2)

by Carolyn McCray

Yes, upon fan request the Betrayed series is continuing!
While Brandt and Rebecca go off to have some babies, don’t worry!
Davidson, Bunny and of course, Lopez are carrying the torch forward into more action packed adventures in the Bull’s Eyes Sniper Chronicles, the 2nd cycle of the Betrayed Series!

***Warning*** Before you purchase this collection please be aware that the Betrayed series is a set of extremely controversial religious/historical thrillers. Too controversial to be published in hardback. Please do NOT purchase this book if you were at all disturbed by the DaVinci Code or The Passion of Christ’s revelations.

We also strongly recommend that you read at the least 30 Pieces of Silver before reading this collection, otherwise the extremely controversial ending will not have the same impact.

Praise for the Betrayed series…
“Carolyn McCray’s 30 PIECES OF SILVER proves that Dan Brown’s crown is up for grabs. Part minefield and all roller-coaster ride, here is a story as controversial as it is thriller. Hunker down for a long night because once you start this book you won’t be putting it down.”
James Rollins
NY Times bestseller of Bloodline

Black Ops, Weapons, Tunnels, Caves, Supersonic Global Travel….Fasten your Seatbelts, while you read!
“Travel with the best black-op’s team, if you are up to another fast paced adventure of these globe trotting adventurers. Lopez is enjoying himself tremendously with a new assortment of transportation modes, while our sharp shooter Davidson saves the day!
I haven’t had this much fun reading a book in a long time. It is non stop action, loaded with tension relief through humor, has current global events, the kewlest hi tech toys one can imagine and is simply a fun and intriguing story of high risk takers! I can see this book as a box office hit movie in the future.
Carolyn McCray has outdone herself with this third book in the series! This book has all the potential for an international Bestseller. Well done!”
Claudia
Amazon Reviewer

Overview:
The Vice President’s step daughter has been kidnapped. But that’s not the problem. The problem? She seems possessed or has she just been driven mad by a cult that claims to have cloned Christ himself?

More praise for Bull’s Eye Sniper Chronicles…
“Crosshairs is an absolutely brilliant start for the ongoing missions of our special ops team. There have been some changes (all good) some new faces but the action is better than ever. This is another edge of your seat, nail biterâ?¦Lopez is way off the hook this time as he leads us half way around the world and then out of this world, Literally!!!!

Bunny is as beautiful as ever, she has done some growing of her own, she is able to go from Top Model to a gun wielding agent in the blink of an eye. It is one dilemma after another, the action is constant and sometimes very intense…I do recommend this for anyone who can take the religious reference’s for what they are, fiction.

I found this to be very entertaining and was happy to see some of my favorites back in the fray along with Stark working his magic from home on his keyboard and many screens….and surprise! Mom is a bigger geek than her son, a very cool, hippie geek that is.

I am looking forward to the next installment! Well Done Ms. McCray! On to the next.”
Anna Salaman

Only Death Will Do

by Mark Mueller

Quirky and unconventional, the Bard of Spruce Run returns in “Only Death Will Do,” a new whodunit of betrayal and murder. Newspaper editor Louis “Mac” McMurphy has scored the human-interest story of his career when he agrees to interview Austin Cogard, a prominent, yet reclusive author and gambler who owns a secluded, monumassive estate on Point Mountain in Spruce Run. But when Mac arrives at Cogard’s estate with his wife, WMNH Radio investigative reporter Maddy McMurphy, the pair finds Cogard near death, having been critically wounded from a gunshot in the hours following a high-stakes poker game that he had hosted night before.
In the ensuing days, Mac and Maddy meet with several poker party guests and delve into Cogard’s gambling past, only to discover that he has had a history of ruining people’s lives, and that some of his guests at that game were related to his past victims.
When Cogard perishes from the gunshot wound, there are plenty of motivated suspects to go around. As Mac and Maddy balance their family life with the demands of investigating this major news story, they meet the challenge with witty quips and flirtatious banter while they unravel the mystery of who murdered Austin Cogard.
