The Pagan’s Prize, Miriam Minger ~$2.99

The Pagan's PrizeHer first novel was called “a fabulous debut” (Romantic Times). Since then, Miriam Minger has swept readers into her unforgettable romances–and now, she presents her most exciting and passionate novel yet…

Rurik: The bold Viking warrior traveled alone on a mission of conquest. But along the way a golden-haired captive inflamed him with longing. He took up his sword to defend her…then swore to claim her for his own.

Zora: A beautful princess betrayed by treachery, she spurned the powerful man who held her prisoner–and vowed never to yield. He had been sent as a spy to pave the way for her people’s surrender. But his furious hunger for her heated touch–and her aching need for his burning caress–led to a fiery passion that was a greater prize than any kingdom.


“Another fine example of Ms. Minger’s amazing talent.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.” ~NYT bestselling author Johanna Lindsey

A Single Deadly Truth, John Urban ~ $2.99

A Single Deadly TruthOn February 18, 1952, a five-hundred-foot oil tanker named the Pendleton snapped in half as it battled sixty-foot seas in a winter storm off Cape Cod. The rescue of the Pendleton ranks as one of the most heroic events in the history of the United States Coast Guard. That much is true.

In a work of fiction, A Single Deadly Truth tells that another ship sank that same night, just a few miles from where the Pendleton went down, and the ship’s sole survivor remained committed to taking the story, and the ship’s location, to his grave. Until now.

A Single Deadly Truth features a thirty-five year old college professor and part-time harbormaster named Steve Decatur who spends his summers living aboard an old wooden sailboat in the town of Harbor Point, Massachusetts. When Decatur’s friend, a lobsterman and diver named Chris Blanchard, is found dead off Cape Cod, Decatur is called on to retrieve the man’s boat. Along the way, there’s growing evidence that Blanchard’s death was a murder, not an accident.

To the end, Decatur remains persistent in uncovering the truth and in doing so he uncovers a much larger crime.


“I couldn’t put it down….I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense.” ~ Amazon.com Customer Review

It’s the summer of 1879, and Annie Fuller, a young San Francisco widow, is in trouble. Annie’s husband squandered her fortune before committing suicide five years earlier, and one of his creditors is now threatening to take the boardinghouse she owns to pay off a debt.

Annie Fuller also has a secret. She supplements her income by giving domestic and business advice as Madam Sibyl, one of San Francisco’s most exclusive clairvoyants, and one of Madam Sibyl’s clients, Matthew Voss, has died. The police believe his death was suicide brought upon by bankruptcy, but Annie believes Voss has been murdered and that his assets have been stolen.

Nate Dawson has a problem. As the Voss family lawyer, he would love to believe that Matthew Voss didn’t leave his grieving family destitute. But that would mean working with Annie Fuller, a woman who alternatively attracts and infuriates him as she shatters every notion he ever had of proper ladylike behavior.

Sparks fly as Anne and Nate pursue the truth about the murder of Matthew Voss in this light-hearted historical mystery set in the foggy gas-lit world of Victorian San Francisco.

If you were within arm’s reach of 30, had a few dollars in the bank, and were just a little bored, what would you do? Cara O’Flynn decided to quit her job, find herself an entrepreneurial endeavor, and with the help of her sister Teagan, become wildly successful. A little cliché perhaps, but sometimes it’s best to take a breath and trust the plan.

The problem – Cara didn’t plan for three careers in as many days, nor did she anticipate the new guys that dropped in her lap. Worse things could happen. So, of course, they did.

When you’re Irish, all things, good and bad, come in threes. It’s inevitable. She should have remembered not to forget that part.

Cara and Teagan bring laughter, intelligence, and family tradition to every experience they encounter. Hot Tea is the first novel in this series.

Gary Ponzo‘s Frugal Find Under Nine:


Description:
Winner of the Southwest Writers Novel Contest, Thriller category!

FBI agent Nick Bracco can’t stop a Kurdish terrorist from firing missiles at random homes across the country. The police can’t stand watch over every household, so Bracco recruits his cousin Tommy to help track down this terrorist. Tommy is in the Mafia. Oh yeah, it gets messy fast. As fast as you can turn the pages.


Accolade: 
A Touch of Deceit is a fast-paced thriller from page one. It includes the perfect amount of personal lives of the characters along with the crime story and combines the two nicely.

The main characters are well-developed and though the story switches point of view often, it is easy to keep track of whose mind we are in. The characters include many members of the government, the law, as well as terrorists and all are believable.

I hated to put A Touch of Deceit down and would definitely read another Nick Bracco thriller. If you like thrillers, you should read this book.

An excerpt from A Touch of Deceit:


There was a time when Nick Bracco would walk down Gold Street late at night and young vandals would scatter.  The law was present and the guilty took cover.  West Baltimore was alive with crime, but Gold Street remained quarantined, reserved for the dirtiest of the dirty.  That’s how Nick remembered it anyway.  Before he left for the Bureau to fight terrorists.  Now, the narrow corridor of row houses felt closer to him and the slender strip of buckled sidewalk echoed his footsteps like a sentry announcing his presence.  It wasn’t his turf anymore.  He was a foreigner.
     Nick scrutinized the landscape and searched for something out of place.  The battered cars seemed right, the graffiti, even the shadows seemed to darken the proper corners.  But something was missing.  There were no lookouts on the concrete stairwells.  The ubiquitous bass line of hip-hop was absent.  The stillness reminded him of jungle birds falling silent in the prelude to danger.  The only comfort came from the matching footsteps beside him.  As usual, Matt McColm was by his side.  They’d been partners for ten years and were approaching the point of finishing each other’s sentences.
     “You’re awfully quiet,” Matt said.
     “Did I mention that I don’t have a good feeling about this?”               

     “Uh, huh.”  Matt tightened his collar against the autumn chill and worked a piece of gum with his jaw.  “That’s your theme song.”

Her mother, Katherine Swift, was a renowned children’s author who died when Eden was very young. Now Eden, recovering from a divorce and disillusioned with her glamorous life, returns to the childhood home of the mother she barely knew. She moves in with her uncle, archaeologist Kyle Swift and his wife, Louise.

Eden gets more than she bargained for when Kyle gives her the journal her mother had kept from the age of thirteen until her death. Eden is spellbound by the powerfully written, intimate diary that chronicles a life of hardship, madness and tragedy. But her fascination turns to horror when she discovers the shocking truth about her mother’s life.

Eden turns for comfort to Ben Alexander, Kyle’s colleague, not knowing that Ben has a secret of his own that could ruin Eden and her career. Now Eden must make a heartbreaking decision as she struggles to lay the ghosts of the past to rest and come to terms with her own future.

Shifting gracefully between Eden’s world and Katherine’s, Secret Lives seduces with the power of its images and the lyricism of its prose.
