Finding Harmony: Cypress Corners Series Book 1

by JoMarie DeGioia

Bestselling author JoMarie DeGioia brings heat, heart and humor in her Cypress Corners series of Contemporary Romantic Comedies!

A country girl committed to nature.

A city guy with his eye on the bottom line.

A battle of willsâ?¦a battle for balance

And a love that can tip the scales

Rick Chapman is climbing to the top rung of his father’s corporate ladder. Fulfilling Chapman Financial’s contract at Cypress Corners, Florida will finally prove his value to the company. And to his father. But one endangered weed, and the pretty plant girl trying to save it, could really screw up his plans.

Harmony Brooks loves her job as a plant conservationist at Cypress Corners, and the money she earns allows her to make up for a former boyfriend’s betrayal. He not only stole her parents’ money, he stole her heart. And that’s something she won’t ever risk again. But opposites attract, not that she or Rick ever expected to fall in love.

Can Harmony prove to Rick that he’s worth so much more than his father’s approval?

Or is Rick so blind he can’t see that loving Harmony is worth losing what he’s wanted for so long?

Smashed Nuts: Prequel – Excess Baggage Series

by Andrene Low

Sixteen hundred kilos of German Engineering. Enough alcohol to preserve a dead wallaby. A crazy wife in possession of both. How is Brenda supposed to avoid running into all three?

It’s something she finds out first-hand while navigating the murky waters of dating a married man. But is Hilton really worth risking life and limb over? If he’s the only thing between her, a decent meal, and not living in her car, then that’s gotta be a â??hell, yes!’.

Set in Surfers Paradise, Australia in 1977, against a heady backdrop of the sexual revolution, gold bikinis, and lots of sunshine, when a bloke could be rich enough to be viewed as attractive even if you had to wear a bag over your own head in case theirs fell off.

Hilton isn’t the only thing stopping Brenda from being hungry and homeless, but then working as a Surfers Paradise Meter Maid to make ends meet hadn’t been high on her list of life goals, either. She’s fine with strutting around town in a gold lamé bikini, tiara, and sash, but doing so while wearing high heels has her feet crying for relief. If it wasn’t for the excellent opportunities it provided for spotting â??willing targets’, she’d have given it up long ago.

Smashed Nuts is a prequel novella to Andrene’s seventies-based Excess Baggage Series and is a no-holds-barred look at the less than salubrious parts of the Gold Coast.

What others are saying:

“I went into this book knowing it was only a short prequel. I knew that when I bought it. That doesn’t mean that I’m happy about it being so short! GIVE ME MORE! I want more stories about being a meter maid wearing a gold bikini. I want more close calls. I want more disastrous liaisons. Damn it, I wanted this to be a longer book. It’s too good to be so short. Funny, nostalgic, but too short… ;)”

“Lots of laughs from the Antics of a poor young woman who wants the good life and has a unique idea on how to get it without doing boring jobs. Life doesn’t go to plan though. A fast paced short read. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.”â??

A Woman’s Guide to Perfection

by Alix Nichols

A WOMAN’S GUIDE TO PERFECTION has been described by its celebrity authors, Ines de Treize and Katherine de Neuf, as a “fountain of wisdom”.

This shockingly cynical lifestyle primer breaks down its advice into 14 actionable Guidelines, including:

  • The Perfect Woman always wears silk lingerie…
  • The Perfect Woman knows how to manage her boss…
  • The Perfect Woman lives in Paris…
  • The Perfect Woman never tells her current lover about all the previous ones…
  • The Perfect Woman is strategic in the choice of her pet…

Red flags, bullet points, vaguely relevant illustrations and a bonus chapter from a romantic comedy by Alix Nichols, AMANDA’S GUIDE TO LOVE, complete this “how-to” parody.

Disclaimer: A WOMAN’S GUIDE TO PERFECTION may or may not make you perfect. But it will make you chuckle.

If you enjoy biting and relatable observations and don’t mind a morally questionable tip or three, then this little book is for you!

Fragged (Fragged (A LitRPG Short Story Series) Book 1)

by Zachariah Dracoulis

A LitRPG short story with crafting, nudity, gratuitous violence, dinosaurs, and profanity. What more could you want?

Zoey has just been screwed over by someone in her clan, a screwing over that resulted with her getting hit with a permadeath and having to restart from scratch in the dystopian game world of Thren, a land of dinosaurs, rabid humans, and more than a few other deadly threats.

Carry On Quack: The Hilarious Adventures Of Dr Quack

by Christopher Wood

Lower Malden – a village typical of contemporary rural England – is Chris Wood’s traditional setting for his wickedly funny, debut comic novel, CARRY ON QUACK.

Country doctor Edward Thomas, has flaws that beat even Mr Bean’s well-documented eccentricities and the wild improbability of hotelier, Basil Fawlty. Chauvinistic, egotistic, Edward, is married to long-suffering Elizabeth, who has so far tolerated her husband’s complicated OCD issues dominating their family life. But Elizabeth reaches breaking point when she discovers her husband dressed in her underwear – and her Manolo Blahniks – if only he get them on!

Edward is characteristically unrepentant and Elizabeth moves back to Mother, leaving her husband to supervise their two odd-ball and opportunistic teenage children, Neville and Jessica. In Elizabeth’s absence, 14-year-old Neville soon indulges his puerile fantasies and nineteen-year-old Jessica drops college to become a model.
As the three abandoned Quacks struggle to come to terms with separation and looming divorce, charismatic, handsome hypnotist Guy Westlake steps in to seduce Elizabeth. Edward hits the bottle and whilst under the influence, is framed by his vengeful secretary, Mrs Willoughby, who lands her boss with a voluptuous, man-eating blonde.

Having been deprived of meat for umpteen years by veggie Elizabeth, Edward puts up only a token struggle. Meanwhile, into this cocktail of romps and regrets, strides the long arm of the law, smoothly outwitted by a vicious goat and left to the mercy of canine predator, Lucifer.

Other topics thrown into this heady concoction are alternative therapies, the occult, and Freudian slips that have nothing whatsoever to do with underwear. Or perhaps they have everything to do with underwear…a conundrum resolved by the ubiquitous Adolphus Hunt, private-eye-extraordinaire, whose efforts at extortion and knack for grasping the wrong end of the stick, makes him the perfect foil to the plot of Chris Wilt’s surprisingly insightful and endearingly humorous, comedy of errors.

A Special Interest

by David Belisle

To leap-frog the polls, a Canadian grass roots political party does the unthinkable.

It’s political activism at its most active. GAP policy advisor Ronald Greenwood has some explaining to do.

A quick read, Belisle wrote this political satire as part of Anvil Press’ 3-Day Novel competition. He maxed out at 33 pages per day.

Double Lives (Johnny Wagner, Godlike PI Book One)

by Matt Cowper

A bomb, thrown by a supervillain, kills one of Z City’s superheroes. There’s footage of the death, and plenty of witnesses. It’s an open and shut case for the Division of Superhuman Crime. The supervillain is going to prison, never to breathe free air again.

But the superhero’s widow, of all people, believes the villain was set up, and she’s hired Johnny Wagner, the self-proclaimed Godlike PI, to investigate the murder. Equipped with a God Arm, Johnny is a determined, resourceful, and powerful private eye – except when the god on his arm is acting ornery, or when the women in his life drive him to distraction, or when he worries about paying off his many debts.

As Johnny struggles with his questionable decisions and the arrogant bellowing of his god, he finds both the villains and the heroes of Z City have him in their crosshairs. Everyone, it seems, wants the truth of the murder to remain buried – and they’re willing to ruin or kill anyone who digs too deeply.

Can Johnny solve this case without getting vaporized or – even worse – going deeper into debt?

Featuring high-octane action, forbidden romance, scheming government officials, and a villain who dresses up in a squirrel costume, Matt Cowper’s latest novel takes superhero fiction to astounding new heights. Welcome to Z City, a place you’ll never want to leave, even when someone’s firing a lambda beam at you!
