But what about the vow he made to never get close to anyone again?

While conducting a sting operation to bring down a corrupt landlord with council connections, Venn discovers all is not as it seems.

And why are Venn’s attempts to investigate the matter further being blocked from on high?

Category: Paranormal Romance / Dark Fantasy

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A MYSTERIOUS, MYTHOLOGICAL PAST

Amedeo is Cruxim, an enigmatic, immortal fallen angel who knows little about his dark past apart from a curious prophecy and an unremitting lust for blood. Destined to seek redemption as a vampire hunter, he nourishes his insatiable blood lust on the undead. But when the object of his erotic passion, the novice nun Joslyn, is turned into a vampire and enters a coven, Amedeo’s worlds collide. Shattered by the loss of his beloved, the dark hunter vows to wage an epic battle to rid the world of nosferatu once and for all, even if it destroys his vampire romance with Josyln, and even Joslyn herself.

A DARK QUEST FOR A DARK ANGEL

Joining dark angel Amedeo on his mission to decimate the undead is Sabine. As passionate, headstrong, romantic and immortal as she is, she is also half-woman, half-lioness. As a Sphinx—a winged guardian once believed to be a myth—she has protected mortals from vampires since sin saw mortals evicted from the Garden of Eden. Yet Sabine comes to the battle pursued by her own enemies. Archaeologist Dr. Claus Gandler has learned the secret of Sabine’s past and has vowed to torment her for eternity or find a way to destroy this dark huntress forever.

IMMORTAL EVER AFTER?

Captured and tortured by the evil doctor, Amedeo and Sabine are paraded as sideshow freaks in Gandler’s Circus of Curiosities, a travelling freak show. Only vampire Joslyn has the power to intercede. Will she prove this dark angel’s redemption, or his destruction?

Set in 18th Century Europe, this epic saga of forbidden love plays out amid a mighty battle of good against evil, fallen angel against nosferatu devil, and reason against madness in an adventure fantasy series a critic from Literary R&R described as “like the next Anne Rice series. There’s a love story alongside some pretty gruesome and evil stuff ” and others have called “compelling … dark, visceral and not for the squeamish.”

Someone, or something, is murdering tourists and dumping their bodies in the city’s scenic canals. With the help of a mysterious stranger, Jenna begins to piece together clues that are dotted throughout the city like blood spatter.

Determined to stop the killings, Jenna delves into a bloody local history that only raises more questions–but some secrets are best left buried. Jenna must put her combat training to the test as she struggles to unearth the truth about an ancient enemy.

You’ll meet new lawyer Jerry, who is two notches and one toga party below Bolo on the law firm totem pole. Of course, not everything Bolo touches ends in calamity. Some are near-misses, including Miss Lois, Miss Veronica, and Miss . . . . .

But let’s get back to the practice of law. The law is a jealous mistress, it’s been said. And she has plenty to be jealous about in the case of Bolo Jackson. Will Bolo’s “Invaders from Outer Space” defense work in court? How does Bolo solve a mystery that has stumped the legal community for decades? How does he deal with the ominous Sack of Death?

Practicing law in a small North Carolina firm back in the Andy of Mayberry era called for unorthodox tactics. You’ll see how Bolo and law partner Walt ended up in a threesome at the No-Tell Motel. You’ll be amazed what Bolo learns when he wiretaps the partners’ secret meeting. You’ll cringe at Bolo’s attempts to impress a visiting English lawyer.

And Bolo’s unpredictable romantic life, or lack thereof. Does steamy secretary Lois ever tire of hopping onto his lap? Does Veronica the Ice Princess ever warm up? And just how dense is Bolo, to escort a third gal to a function also attended by Lois and Veronica?

Somehow one young lawyer really was this dumb, and lucky. Despite all the catastrophes and near-disasters, everyone agrees that Bolo Jackson really is . . . Such a Good Lawyer.

Funny, charming, ridiculous, and strangely true, you’ll never look at the legal profession the same after reading this sequel to the popular Pardon Me for Protruding and Other True Tales: A Young Lawyer’s Life, Learning, and Loves. A memoir by Bolaride Jackson, Attorney at Law.

The Ian Fleming Files – Operation Armada and Operation Parsifal, a two-book box set collection by Damian Stevenson, is regularly $7.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars based on 37 customer reviews.

Category: Thriller

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Before James Bond there was Commander Ian Fleming or ’17F’ as he was known during World War 2 when the young British author served as an intelligence officer in Great Britain’s Naval Intelligence Department.

In his startling debut novel, Ian Fleming scholar and screenwriter of upcoming movie Fleming Damian Stevenson has crafted the ultimate origin story for one of popular culture’s most beloved icons.

Everything that inspired the James Bond books is here: the suave and ruthless central character, his demanding boss, a bevy of beautiful femme fatales, formidable villains bent on world domination, their homicidal henchmen, exotic locations, crackling wit and all the cool cars, sleek guns, ingenious gadgets and monstrous hardware one would expect to see lavishly featured in a gonzo story about the author of Casino Royale, Live and Let Die, Moonraker, The Spy Who Loved Me, From Russia With Love, Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, You Only Live Twice and The Man With The Golden Gun.

James Bond was born from the ashes of World War 2 and The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada is all the more powerful for its attention to historical reality. This is no flight of fancy. The book has been lauded by Bond experts for the way in which it convincingly takes us inside Ian Fleming’s mind as he executes the dangerous missions that inspired his best selling books.

Damian Stevenson researched his novel for six years, interviewing hundreds of people connected to Ian Fleming’s life and reading everything ever written about him. The result is an instant classic that will appeal to Bond fans and lovers of good writing everywhere.

OPERATION ARMADA MISSION BRIEF

June 14, 1940. Naval Intelligence operative Commander Ian Fleming a.k.a. ’17F’ is parachuted into occupied France with two million pounds in gold. His mission: to negotiate the purchase of sixty battleships from the renegade head of France’s Navy, the mysterious and charismatic World War I legend Admiral Darlan. Fleming is assisted in his quest by the French Resistance led by the beautiful saboteur Denise Astier. Plans go awry and 17F is forced to improvise when German Army Group B, led by the sadistic General Bock, makes a run for Admiral Darlan’s ships. Hitler needs France’s battle-cruisers and destroyers to mount ‘Operation Sealion,’ his planned invasion of Great Britain. Ian Fleming has four days to get to Darlan before the French fleet is annihilated by the Royal Navy. With General Bock on his heels, and a traitor close to home, 17F finds himself in a race with the biggest stakes imaginable.

OPERATION PARSIFAL MISSION BRIEF

It’s January 1944 and in the dark world of political assassinations, 17F has become code for ruthless efficiency.

He prevented Admiral Darlan and General Bock from forming a dangerous alliance in Operation Armada. Now he must do the unthinkable: save the life of Adolph Hitler to ensure an Allied victory.

A stunning young German woman holds the key to solving the enigma of Parsifal but she may be a double-agent working for the psychopathic diamond billionaire Wolfgang Krupp.

17F must resist her seductive allure or risk the worst case scenario: a Nazi victory.

The second book in the Beirut Trilogy, BRIDE OF A BYGONE WAR is set in the spring of 1981, following the American elections, when Lebanon hopes for fresh political winds that might end their seven-year civil war. Enter Walter Lukash, a midlevel CIA officer assigned as intelligence liaison to the Phalange militia. Lukash soon becomes a pawn in a Levantine game intended to draw the U.S. into conflict with Lebanon’s Syrian occupiers. Unfortunately, Lukash is too distracted by problems arising from having abandoned his Lebanese bride five years earlier to see the trap until it springs.

SYNOPSIS:

Beirut, 1981. Walter Lukash, a journeyman CIA case officer, has been posted in the Middle East for eight straight years and is ready for a quiet desk job back in Washington. When he is ordered to Beirut instead for a two-month secret liaison assignment with the Phalange militia’s intelligence unit, his superiors believe they understand his reluctance to accept.

What they don’t know is that, five years earlier, Lukash secretly married a Lebanese woman against Agency rules and abandoned her soon after the outbreak of war. More than that, his new Irish live-in girlfriend, whom the Agency considers a security risk, has followed him to Beirut from Amman and Lukash has defied orders to break off the relationship.

When the two-month assignment is extended to two years, Lukash realizes he can no longer avoid painful realities and choices. But before he can straighten things out, he is caught in a deadly three-way intrigue between the Phalange, the U.S. government and Lebanon’s ruthless Syrian occupiers that threatens to unleash the full force of Syrian-backed terrorism against Americans in Beirut.

BRIDE OF A BYGONE WAR captures the unique atmosphere of Civil War Beirut with a lively and intelligent style that draws the reader into deep identification with the characters and the action.

MURDER MOST VIRAL!

It’s a chilly November in 1994, and thirty-one-year-old Geoff Kavanagh surreptitiously splits his time between science fiction novels and cyberspace in his parents’ dilapidated, overgrown, uptown New Orleans mansion. Until his mother finds him dead from a suspicious fall off a ladder. Maybe he should never have posted about seeing his father murdered … because way too many people on the TOWN, a pre-Facebook virtual community, knew things about his family he didn’t even suspect. Decades-old skeletons start falling out of closets after Geoff’s untimely death, thanks to New Orleans Detective Skip Langdon. Langdon finds Geoff’s gorgeous mom strangely uninterested in her son’s fatal fall, but Mom’s apparently the only one. It seems the post has gone viral. Suddenly all the TOWNSpeople have theories—and ambition as cyberdetectives. What’s a murderer to do but kill his way out?

VOLUME TWO in the WOOD COW CHRONICLES series.

For untold ages, the Granite Hulks at Tilk Duraow have been the impregnable center of the High One’s slaving system. Overpowering. Impenetrable. Final. The point from which there is no return. But now, fifteen-year-old Helga’s revolution—one she hardly expected to begin—is way bigger than she ever dreamed. Tilk Duraow itself is in danger. Unexpectedly finding common cause with a troupe of oddball characters, Helga and old comrades are reunited in a chain of events that portends the Overending. Now even the High One himself is no longer safe. The Overending opens a crack…

Rick Johnson’s slightly skewed reality brings readers another mind-bending, genre-busting adventure. Fantastic and quirky, exhilarating and addicting, this entertaining adventure takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end. Ridiculous, but deadly serious. Hits you hard in the funnies, while turning your mind inside out.

They insist she pick a new mate and try again, but she’s sworn off love and the possibility of ever having a real family.

When a ship from the thriving planet of Urslat crashes on Zerris, Marlee rescues the ship’s daring captain, Tyris. His ship is grounded, winter is setting in, and he won’t survive without help. She offers him a deal…he can live with her if he pretends to be her mate so the Council will leave her alone.

Tyris agrees and a hungry desire sparks between them as they battle the harsh winter and primitive conditions. Their attraction grows, and soon, keeping their distance becomes impossible, even more challenging than the snow, the Council, and, for Marlee, the risks of a real relationship.

Will she risk her heart one last time for a chance at her dream? Or will Tyris be her undoing?

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Since her divorce two years before, Kelsie Collins has been determined to guard her heart and steer clear of seemingly ‘perfect’ men. An easy task considering the kind of men her matchmaking mother and her best friend, Nanci, keeps setting her up with. She allows them to set her up, knowing their hearts are in the right place and that there is no risk of her letting any man close enough to hurt her again. Her growing experience in ways to slip out of those ‘dates from hell’ prompts her to start writing a bad date survival guide. One aptly titled – OPERATION: DATE ESCAPE. And it’s during one of those escapes that sexier than sin firefighter Cole Maxwell comes to her rescue.

Cole isn’t sure what to think when the sexy redhead he’s just ‘rescued’ from a bad date informs him that he’s too ‘perfect’ to date. That’s a first. He’s had relationships end because the women couldn’t handle the risks that go along with his chosen profession, but never because he’s too perfect.

When his crew gets called out to rescue someone who is stuck in a tree, Cole finds himself once again coming to Kelsie’s rescue. This time he’s not about to let her get away without agreeing to give him a chance, even holding her high heels hostage to make it happen. She finally gives in and things heat up between them like a 3-alarm fire. But there’s more than passion between them and Cole sets out to prove to Kelsie that he’s nowhere near ‘perfect’, but he is the ‘perfect’ man for her. Can he get past the wall she’s built up around her heart? Or will he end up being just another chapter in her book of men she ran from?

Winner, 2010 EPIC Ebook Award for fiction in the Mainstream category.

When she was a child, the author happily identified with all the male heroes she read about in stories that began, “Once upon a time, a young man went out to seek his fortune.” But she would have been delighted to discover even one story like that with a female protagonist. Since she never did find the story she was looking for all those years ago, she decided to write it.

In Book I of the trilogy, Tamras arrives in Merin’s house to begin her apprenticeship as a warrior, but her small stature causes many, including Tamras herself, to doubt that she will ever become a competent swordswoman. To make matters worse, the Lady Merin assigns her the position of companion, little more than a personal servant, to a woman who came to Merin’s house, seemingly out of nowhere, the previous winter, and this stranger wants nothing to do with Tamras.

What if your very existence threatened the heart of power?

It’s the 21st century, right now, in America and on the surface everything looks just fine. But the commonly accepted image of society is an illusion. A clandestine force usurps the desires of individuals, and those who won’t conform must be crushed to preserve the appearance of free will.

Aranka is just a sixteen-year-old girl but a fluke in her genes makes her a threat. Those with power will stop at nothing to protect their supremacy. She is kidnapped by doctors who claim she’s sick with Ebola but it’s only a matter of time before it’s her turn to die.

A diverse band of outlaws from every corner of the globe represent the only hope of resistance. Kenyen, a young doctor, infiltrates to the heart of the oppression but he can’t stop the terror. He just wants to save one life. In the process he uncovers “the Seed,” the first flicker of hope in a thousand years.

This is the first book in The Kyrennei Series – a dystopian fantasy thriller of today’s world. The second book is The Fear and the Solace.
