Dragon Fire Academy 1: First Term: an academy reverse harem romance

by Rachel Jonas

Seriously? Four dragon warriors need to stalk my every move?

I get it. They think I’m dangerous, but I’m only on their island to learn. Not to destroy it.

This is another unfortunate side-effect of being the freak who descended from all three supernatural lineages. The bloodthirsty dragons, the destructive wolves, and the disloyal witches. Some believe that, when I transition in a few months, there’s a slight, teeny tiny chance I could unleash hell on the supernatural world. Call me crazy, but I’d know if I harbored that kind of power inside me.

… Wouldn’t I?

My entire life, all I’ve wanted was to be normal. Hence the reason I didn’t think twice about trading in my crown for a stack of books. I’ve got three terms on this island to prove the naysayers wrong, including my chaperones—Kai, Ori, Paulo, and Rayen.

These four are gorgeous, but also ominous as heck. Babysitting me has clearly taken their focus off something they’ve deemed more important. So, now they go out of their way to make my life a living hell, with hopes that I’ll give up and leave.

Thanks, guys.

You could cut the tension between us with a knife, but what’s weird is I don’t hate them all the time. There are even odd moments when I catch them watching me. And not in their usual “wish-you-were-dead” sort of way.

Even if I survive the academy, there’s still no guarantee these four and I won’t kill each other before graduation.

Gone Girl: A Novel

by Gillian Flynn


Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn. 

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?   With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

Bone Point (Gina Mazzio RN Medical Thrillers Book 8)

by Bette Lamb et al


BONE POINT
GINA MAZZIO RN MEDICAL THRILLER SERIES
Veterans are being murdered.

This is #8 in the fast-paced Gina Mazzio RN medical thriller series
BONE POINT will not disappoint

Long-time fans will rejoice—now we know love does conquer all. Gina is pregnant—this after doctors said it would never happen.
But five months into her high-risk pregnancy, Gina's veteran brother, who suffers from PTSD, vanishes.
Why has he abandoned everyone and everything?
Although under bed-rest orders, Gina takes off to find him.

What she discovers is that Vinnie's been swallowed up in a derelict, soon-to-close VA psychiatric hospital with a corrupt administration involved in greed, malevolence, and murder.
Vinnie could be the next to die.

This action-packed, shocking, take-no-prisoners tale of medical suspense is definitely not for the faint-hearted. But fans of the more hard-boiled medical thrillers (and also of Patricia Cornwell) will eat it up; as will lovers of strong women detectives, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction, especially fans of Tess Gerritsen.

Advance praise for BONE POINT:

"The Lambs are real masters of taut action and edge-of-the-seat suspense. Bone Point is another outstanding entry in this exciting series of medical thrillers."
—Margaret Lucke, author of Snow Angel

Praise for the previous Gina Mazzio Books:

"Deftly plotted and artfully executed, Bone Pit is a compelling read that provides a shocking look at the world of contemporary medicine and Big Pharma."
—Sheldon Siegel, New York Times best-selling author

"SIN & BONE is a chilling, gripping thriller by a talented writing couple."
—Marcia Muller & Bill Pronzini, MWA Grand Masters

"BONE DRY ... a medical thriller not for the squeamish."
—Publishers Weekly

From The Authors:
Writing about RN Gina Mazzio and her boyfriend, RN Harry Lucke, has been a fun experience. It's also a privilege to tell about characters who dedicate their lives to helping others. Many of the people our protagonists work with (as in real life) spend each and every day, perhaps not with murder, but certainly in pain, distress, and danger. We hope most of our books bring the positive recognition that nurses deserve.

BETTE GOLDEN LAMB, a registered nurse, has developed parallel careers as a painter, sculptor, and ceramist. Her art works can be found in a number of galleries and private collections. In addition to co-authored books with J. J. , she has had three other books published: THE ORGAN HARVESTERS and THE ORGAN HARVESTERS BOOK II and THE RUSSIAN GIRL.

J. J. LAMB is a career writer - journalism, short stories, and novels. In addition to fiction co-authored with Bette, he is the creator of the Zachariah Tobias Rolfe III private eye series, the latest of which, NO PAT HANDS, was nominated for a Shamus Award.

The LAMBS live in Northern California and are members of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime.

BONE POINT is the eighth book in the Gina Mazzio RN medical thriller series, which includes BONE DRY, SIN & BONE, BONE PIT, BONE OF CONTENTION, BONE DUST, BONE CRACK, and BONE SLICE.
Also, SISTERS IN SILENCE, HEIR TODAY..., and THE KILLING VOTE were co-authored novels.
The Lambs also have three action-packed boxsets: Bone Set I, Bone Set II, and Smorgasbord of Suspense.
