High Risk (Risky Business Book 1)

by Siena Noble


Six years ago, Kiera Anders resolved to put her painful past behind her, seeking a fresh start in New York. She didn’t count on her past finding her again in the form of Caleb Martin - her brother's former best friend and her first love. Now with millions to his name, a playboy reputation, and a closet full of skeletons, the cold and distant "Mr. Martin" is so different from the sweet Caleb she once knew.


But some things are hard to forget, and the passion that still sizzles between them can’t be denied. No other man could give Kiera that sweet taste of dominance and submission… and now that Caleb’s offering it to her again, how can she refuse? But things aren’t as simple as they used to be, with Kiera’s career on the line, a mountain of secrets between them, and Caleb’s sordid past threatening to catch up to him. It’s dangerous to mix business with pleasure… but it is worth the risk?

**This is the first book of the Risky Business Trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger to be resolved in book two**

by Em Brown


Note to self: don’t fall in love with a gangster.

Rogue Wave: A Small Town Beach Romance (Haven Island Series)

by Isabel Jolie


Sometimes, out of nowhere, comes the rogue wave…

You can ride it, or get pulled under.

 

I roamed the untamed ocean.

Set out to play the conservationist hero.

 

Those high seas? They remain lawless for countless reasons.

Over ten years, I saw the worst that humanity has to offer.

And accomplished… nothing.

 

The futility of it all left me disillusioned. Numb.

I returned to the island of my childhood summers.

All I wanted was to lick my wounds. Hide. Regroup.

 

Like a rogue wave, an idealistic beauty thrust herself into my world.

Tells me we can make a difference.

We can save the oceans.

We’re one with the sea.

 

Her naivety might be charming if it wasn’t like looking in a time-warped mirror.

Her natural beauty might be appealing if she wasn’t a college student.

 

The last thing she needs is a summer romance with a burned-out wreck like me.

 

She’s too young. She’s got everything in front of her.

 

And me? I’ve got commitments. And a past.

 

She promises release.

No need for guilt.

I aim for the crest, for a smooth, fun ride.

But when my past comes calling, will we both get pulled under?

 

The first standalone novel in the Haven Island series, Rogue Wave is a love story about two idealistic souls finding their way in a less than perfect world.

A delicious age-gap romance featuring two marine biologists with a desire to save the oceans, an unexpected adoption, and a resort island with a small-town atmosphere. The standalone contemporary romance novel is the first in the Haven Island series, an island where people come to shelter, right off the coast of North Carolina.

The Practical Navigator

by Chris Crowley


Perfect for fans of Scott Turow and John Lescroart, The Practical Navigator is a smart, fast-moving legal thriller where everyone’s motives—and desires—are in question.

Membership in the Great Arcadia, an exclusive East Coast yacht club, is pretty much limited to the rich and powerful in 1980s business, finance, and politics. But the sexually charged murder of Greek billionaire George Minot during their annual regatta off the coast of Maine opens a door into a secret world of addictive sexuality and excess beneath the starched sheets of the East Coast establishment.

Tim Bigelow is looking forward to spending a week at sea with the magical Cassie Sears, who has suddenly appeared in his life. He’s also there to celebrate his older brother, Harry—the retiring commodore of the Great Arcadia who’s on course for a major role in the White House. That prospect slips away when Minot is murdered and details start to come out, including the alarming fact that Minot saw himself as a latter-day embodiment of the Minotaur—the half-man, half-bull creature who lurked in the Labyrinth beneath the ancient city of Knossos in one of the oldest myths in the Western canon.

From the decks of the world’s finest yachts to the beds and boardrooms of some of the most powerful people in America to an electrifying courtroom trial in a dying coastal town, The Practical Navigator steers a course through its own labyrinth . . . a whirlpool of obsessive sexuality, murder, and despair.

The Munich Girl: A Novel of the Legacies that Outlast War

by Phyllis Edgerly Ring


Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun.

Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did—that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends.

The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.

Plunged into the world of the “ordinary” Munich girl who was her mother’s confidante—and a tyrant’s lover—Anna finds her every belief about right and wrong challenged. With Hannes’s help, she retraces the path of two women who met as teenagers, shared a friendship that spanned the years that Eva Braun was Hitler’s mistress, yet never knew that the men they loved had opposing ambitions.

Eva’s story reveals that she never joined the Nazi party, had Jewish friends, and was credited at the Nuremberg Trials with saving 35,000 Allied lives. As Anna's journey leads back through the treacherous years in wartime Germany, it uncovers long-buried secrets and unknown reaches of her heart to reveal the enduring power of love in the legacies that always outlast war.

Keep Me In Your Heart (The Friessens Book 32)

by Lorhainne Eckhart


A Friessen family celebration turns tragic when the marriage of one daughter is preceded by the heartbreaking loss of another.


Three days before Sara Friessen’s wedding, her older sister, Chelsea, who is married to the son of a notorious criminal, disappears without a trace. The police have no leads, and her husband, Alaric Taft, has also gone missing. To find the couple, the Friessens must come face to face with the kind of deadly underworld they had never expected would touch their family.

Andy Friessen lives and breathes only one thing: protecting his family. He soon discovers the secret behind what has happened to his eldest daughter, and he’s plunged into a cat and mouse game, stonewalled at every turn by authorities who are supposed to be helping him. For the first time in his life, he’s forced to admit he’s in over his head. The Friessens are stronger together, so, in desperation, though he swore he never would, Andy ultimately calls for help from his cousins, Brad, Jed, and Neil.

As the cousins dig deeper into the days before the disappearance, they discover that Alaric was hiding a very dark truth, one that put a target on Chelsea’s back, and someone would have gone to great lengths to keep it from coming to light. The lines between good and bad have suddenly become blurred. All the Friessens want is a happy ending, but the more they search, the more the evidence points toward their worst fear—that their nightmare has become reality, and Chelsea could be lost to them forever.

Jesus Ascended. What Does That Mean?: Jesus’ Final 40-Day Lesson (Organic Faith Book 1)

by Scott Douglas


★★★  Discover the Power of the Ascension  ★★★

Something happened.

Jesus rose. But Christ didn't just rise from the dead. He ascended to Heaven.

We hear the stories about Peter and John and all the heroes of the New Testament, and they're unstoppable Christians--fearless and bold. And sometimes we wrongly assume that they just got that way. That Christ died for their sins, and bam! They're instantly changed! On the contrary, the disciples were actually quite cowardly in their actions after the Resurrection.

It wasn't until after the Ascension that they were on fire for Christ. So, what happened during the forty days? Something happened.

There's more written about Christ's ministry before his death than the events that happened after his Resurrection, but when we look at Ascension, we begin to see that there's power in small details. We begin to see that something happened after the Resurrection--something happened to transform the lives of believers and make them more than followers.

Looking at what happened after the Resurrection, and further at the Ascension of Christ, we start to see what happened to transform the followers--and in seeing this we might just be transformed ourselves.

Something did indeed happen during the forty days. Jesus was not done teaching.

This is the first book of the Organic Faith series. Each book in the series is a stand-alone title. The second book, Bethlehem, the Year Jesus Was Born, is also available.

Being Authentic: A Memoir

by Morhaf Al Achkar


Our existence is fragile. I learned that in many intricate ways, so I do not take today for granted. I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not even know if tomorrow will come.


On the eve of Thanksgiving 2016, I received the diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer. Next to dying, I fear the spread of cancer to my brain and losing my ability to think, speak, or write. This loss would be devastating to me.

The fragility of our life made me want to be authentic. Therefore, I am writing this memoir to be authentic—we become our true selves when we author who we are.

I am afraid of being forgotten. Death does frighten me. But more than dying, I am scared of having no one remember me or, even worse, of being recognized differently from who I was. At the same time, I have never thought that I was entitled to ask others not to forget me. But, not to be forgotten is precisely what I yearn for.


While I am writing for the other, I am simultaneously writing for myself. I am one of the readers and will test the subject as it gets written. My criteria are stricter. I want to say, “This is my narrative.”

I need to be able to say, “This is my narrative.”

The Dig (Matt Turner Series Book 1)

by Michael Siemsen


A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa. Mystified experts, confounded by the impossible timeline they receive from traditional dating methods, call upon a stubborn twenty-something with a unique talent. Matthew Turner's gift is also his curse: whenever he touches an object, his consciousness is flooded with the thoughts and feelings of those who touched it before him, be it last week or centuries ago. It's a talent that many covet, some fear, and almost no one understands.


Despite being exploited as a child and tormented by the unpleasant experiences imprinted on him from the various items he's "read," Matt agrees to travel from New York to the forests of Kenya. There, threatened by unknown enemies, and helped by a beautiful but prickly ally who begins to understand his strange ability, his mind journeys back in geological time to make a discovery so shocking that it forces us to rewrite all human history.
