Infinity Born

by Douglas E. Richards

A breathtaking near-future thriller. From the NY Times bestselling author whose books have sold over a million copies.

When DARPA’s billion-dollar program to create Artificial Superintelligence is sabotaged, US operative Cameron Carr is tasked with finding the culprit. He’s been on high-stakes missions before, but this time the stakes are nothing less than the future of humanity. Because the race to evolve a superintelligent computer is on, and power players around the world will stop at nothing to get there first.

In the right hands, Artificial Superintelligence could lift humanity to towering heights. But in the wrong hands, this technology could represent the greatest threat humanity has ever seen . . .

Ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, Infinity Born is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller that explores the deadly perils and mind-blowing possibilities that await the human race–including both extinction and immortality.

As our phones and computers become ever smarter, Infinity Born takes an unblinking look at a technological tipping point that is just around the corner. One that will have a profound impact on the future course of human history.

King Me

by Charlotte Mattox

*** THIS IS A SAMPLE ***

Drugs, money, and murder; this is what you find when you tango with drug lord, King Barnes.

The streets have ruled King Barnes’ life, and he lives by their code… until one night when a rival gang member deals out some of his own street justice.

Savia Lewis is a medical student and a genuinely nice girl. She has no idea how her world is about to change with a simple act of kindness. Her decision to help the wounded man who sought refuge at her home will soon turn her life upside down.

Secrets, lies, and revenge are the agenda for King’s arch rival, Joker. He threatens the couple and jeopardizes their newfound happiness. Joker holds the secret to a past that neither lovers are aware of.

As the lovers fall hard for each other, King faces a choice that could rip them apart. The danger mounts as friends become enemies and new bonds are formed.

It is a deadly game of chess in King Me.



A Million Doorways

by K. Martin Beckner

Thirteen-year-old Ethan Brook is new to Rocky Creek, Kentucky, the town first introduced in the Southern Gothic novel Chips of Red Paint. Separated from his friends and mourning the tragic loss of his father, he feels isolated from all the things he has ever known and loved. But his outlook on life begins to change one day when he takes a summer job working for the mysterious and eccentric Zelma Green. With nearly a century between them, he finds in her an unlikely kindred spirit. His new friend loves to tell stories about her life, taking him on a journey spanning over eighty years, from the happy days of her youth, a time of horse-drawn carriages, to the darkest moments of her life. But just as Ethan starts to settle and make peace with his new circumstances, he becomes shockingly aware of a soul-crushing deception in his life, a deception hidden away for years like the mummified body down in Zelma Green’s cellar. As terrible secrets unfold, Ethan faces a decision: does he run, or does he stand and face the truth and his fears head on?



As Deep as the Ocean (Blue Penguin Bay Book 1)

by Serenity Woods

By the bestselling author of the Three Wise Men box set (USA Today bestseller list, November 2016).

Blue Penguin Bay Book 1: As Deep as the Ocean

“Marry me,” Mac said. “To save the vineyard. It’ll be strictly business.”

He’s right, Winifred Cartwright thought. It was just a contract, a way to access the money tied up in her inheritance. It didn’t mean anything.

Fred knew she mustn’t think about his broad shoulders. About the intriguing tattoo that curled around his arm, how his muscular body gleamed when he worked in the warm sunshine, or how his ocean-blue eyes heated her from the inside out.

She mustn’t think about the stolen kiss, the way he’d slipped his arm around her waist to pull her against him. The soft touch of his lips on hers.

“It’ll be strictly business,” he repeated.

Yeah, right.



The House of the Seven Gables (AmazonClassics Edition)

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

A portrait of Colonel Pyncheon looms over his family in the house of the seven gablesâ??an ominous reminder of the curse he left behind over a century ago.

The shadow still falls over the New England mansion’s current residents, siblings Clifford and Hepzibahâ??unless they can expose the one secret that offers an escape from the hex.

Set in seventeenth- and nineteenth-century Massachusetts, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s gothic tale was inspired by the Salem Witch Trials and by a family home that still stands today. With the town’s horrific history, the house became, for Hawthorne and his readers, an important metaphor for ancestral burden.
