No Quarter November: An Anthology

by Douglas Wilson

There is a time for rhetorical qualifications. That time was not No Quarter November.

During November 2018, Douglas Wilson hoisted the Jolly Roger and went merrily swashbuckling his way through the culture and the church. Where he might usually make careful qualifications and check all the “on the other hand” boxes, he instead wrote a series of blog posts that slashed right to the heart of various matters. From the worst of the worldly (sexual chaos and atheistic evolution) to the frailties of the faithful (lame church music and foppish liturgical garb), both foes and friends got skewered. This book is the resultant shish kebab.



The Untamed Duke (The Taming Series Book 2)

by April Moran

“Honeybee, I haven’t a drop of honorable blood in my body. I’m cold. Selfish. Hollow. And I greatly enjoy the reputation my cruelty has gained me.”

They call him the Winter Wolf.
Nicholas March has few morals. fewer friends, and a notorious lack of honor.
And his heart? What remains of it is cold, desolate and locked away. He learned long ago the lessons of betrayal. Never trust a woman. Recognize others will expect the worst. And no matter the cost, always retain control of any situation.

Grace Willsdown has no patience for Society’s silly games and no desire for the imprisonment of marriage. When a secret lien against her home is revealed, everything she treasures lies clenched in Nicholas’s palm. She must make the Devil’s bargain to save it all.

Five nights of pleasure and the claim will be dissolved. But neither Nicholas nor Grace anticipate the depths of their desire after their first night together. Consuming. Tender and brutal. Boundaries become distorted. What is the bargain? And what is true emotion?

Will they brave the storms and fires to unlock their love? Or turn their backs when the five nights are done?

***The Untamed Duke contain sexual scenes that are tastefully detailed, as well as strong language. If this disturbs you as a reader, please understand these instances are necessary and play an integral role in the arc and development of the storyline and the characters themselves.



Side Hustle: Season One, Episode 1 (Darcy Walker Side Hustle Story: Season One)

by A. J. Lape

Join Darcy Walker in season one of SIDE HUSTLE, a three-part serial where she leaves the Cincinnati, Ohio, area for the bright lights and bustling action of Los Angeles, California. Crimes are darker, people are more colorful, but one thing remains the sameâ??Darcy Walker solves crime one way: living life like a verb.

Darcy Walker excels at lies, deception, and outthinking the bad guys. She has the résumé to prove it. While waiting to attend the police academy, she takes her talents into pizza delivery. Little does she know, life as a delivery driver isn’t all pizza and wings.

On a late-night run to a customer’s home, Darcy’s delivery turns deadly. She stumbles into a murder mystery straight out of a Hollywood scriptâ??a blood-soaked crime scene with no known witnesses except a suspicious man with a Mona Lisa smile. To compound the trifecta, the victim appears to have a past he’s been trying to outrun. Uncovering his secret-filled life leads Darcy and some new friends on a high-voltage journey, intersecting with a former adversary.

When shadows of this old enemy surface, Darcy realizes black and white are an absolute as sure as the sun’s rotation. One wrong move could keep her from the academy, and one screw up could mean a friend of hers breathes his last breath.

In Side Hustle, solving crime takes a backseat to the moral dilemma she’s placed in: protect her dream or keep a friend alive. Will Darcy uncover who murdered her customer? Or will a Grim Reaper from the past end her and her friends’ lives first?

Readers call the Darcy Walker Series Stephanie Plum meets Veronica Mars meets The Blacklist.
