DESCRIPTION:

A dark and electrifying literary horror novel set in Venice about, the war between good and evil, A Beast in Venice is as powerful and moving as any work of contemporary horror.

While walking the misty streets of Venice one night in search of a good martini, Brigham Stone, former lawyer, now artist living in Venice, sees a man walk through a brick wall. His wife, Rose, thinks it's because he drinks too much. His gondolier friend, Mauro, is convinced that ghoulish creatures known as "shroud eaters" have returned to Venice after a centuries-long absence.

Brigham struggles to succeed as an artist in Venice, and to gain representation in a gallery in the world of Italian protectionism. Thankfully, he finds a rich new patron, Charles Raymond. Charles seems like a such a kindly old man with money and a taste for art. But he has other, more sinister, tastes lurking behind his nice clothes and friendly manner.

At the same time, strange things are happening in Venice. Bodies, butchered and devoid of blood, are found floating in the canals. Brigham is attacked by unknown assailants. He meets an alluring young woman who introduces him to the world of underground vampire clubs.

Drawn into a hidden world of torture, blood, and murder, Brigham must grapple with a hideous evil that on the one hand grants him eternal life, but on the other hand threatens to take his humanity, his marriage, and his life.

"A Beast in Venice" is a rich and disturbing horror novel; chilling and unforgettable, but at the same time, literary.

There he finds solace in the arms of a shy beauty who reawakens desires he thought he’d lost forever—and who makes him want to lose control, just when he needs it most.
 
Kelcee Todd sees beyond Dustin’s scars to the real man beneath: fiercely protective, strong yet tender. She wants nothing more than to feel his battle-hardened hands on her body. However, Kelcee is not the ordinary small-town girl she appears to be. Her brother is a killer with ties to the Russian mob, and after her testimony put him in prison, he’s out and eager for revenge. Now Dustin is her best defense, even if it could cost him everything. Kelcee could never ask him to make that sacrifice . . . but she can’t stop him, either.

“Full of action from the very first page.” ★★★★★ – Examiner.com

Aurora Sky narrowly escapes death only to end up as a vampire hunter with unusual cravings and heightened desires. To protect the people she loves, she will have to make sacrifices, and evade the biggest threat of all . . . a forbidden love. Fast-paced and full of twists, the Aurora Sky series takes an entirely new, sci-fi approach to what it means to be a vampire.

AURORA SKY (Volume 1)
If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it’s to get off the iceberg she calls home. Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora’s life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter. In Alaska. Basically she’s a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job . . . by hand.

Now Aurora’s stuck with an overzealous partner, a group of misfit friends, and a maddening attraction to a rebellious man keeping secrets of his own.

NORTHERN BITES (Volume 2)
Love bites.
Probation sucks.

Thanks to Dante’s recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen.

Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane’s tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings.

When a member of the unit’s team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer’s much closer to home.

STAKEOUT (Volume 2.5)
Noel Harper got a second chance at life when the government recruited her as an undercover vampire informant. Since the day they brought her back from the good-as-dead, she has wanted to prove herself worthy.

When a member of her investigative unit is murdered, Noel is paired up with a vampire hunter named Dante to spy on a suspect in Fairbanks. The problem? They’re not the only ones on stakeout. Taking down murderous vampires is one thing. Dealing with the past is another. But this time, Noel isn’t letting fear win. She’s calling in help from the other side and discovers a shocking secret along the way.

BAD BLOOD (Volume 3)
Aurora returns from boot camp to a new assignment, an unwelcome roommate, and the increasingly amorous attentions of a certain vampire hunter.

College is starting, and so is Aurora’s undercover work at a network of swanky parties known as “Tastings” for high rolling vampires who like their blood laced with fine wine. But Aurora’s not the only one on the prowl. An underground investigation is under way to find out who killed one of Anchorage’s most prominent vampires… and Aurora is a prime suspect.

DESCRIPTION:

“This book is overflowing with kindness, insight, depth and above all…love.” – Katherine Woodward Thomas: New York Times Bestselling Author of Calling in “The One”

If you are interested in deepening your emotional awareness and in developing your emotional intelligence in ways that enhance conscious co-creative living, then this book is for you. It is a drop of peace in the ocean of our busy lives.

  • Do you understand the role that your emotions play in your capacity for free will and conscious living?
  • Are you interested in the power of conscious choice?
  • Do you feel as though you are in charge of the decisions that you make in your life, of navigating your own journey?

    Designed to be read in just 10-15 minutes a day for 7 days, this deeply philosophical and highly transformational book guides readers through a 7-day journey of emotional discovery and expanding spiritual relatedness. Each day, practical and pragmatic suggestions integrated with emotional insight deepen our understanding and awareness of the way in which empathy sits in relationship with spirituality and emotional intelligence, supporting us in enriching the quality of our personal well-being, our relationships and our everyday lives.

    Our emotions sit at the core of our ability to build successful, healthy relationships in all areas of our lives. They play a key role in our self-development and in our ability to navigate our lives through conscious choice and conscious intention.

    Empathy isn’t simply a listening ear and something that we can offer others. In essence, true empathy is a state of being; a way of living that opens a pathway of spiritual relatedness with life itself.

    Spiritual empathy transforms our ability to relate with our full experience of life at a level of mindful and conscious awareness; awareness of ourselves, of others, and awareness of a greater, universal intelligence of which we are an integral and dynamic part.

    This is the first in a series of books about the intelligence of our emotions, each written to support and enable deepening layers of relational growth and understanding. Florence invites readers on a journey of self-discovery, beautifully combining conceptual knowledge of emotional intelligence with practical and pragmatic application.

    The format of the book is deliberate. Its bite-sized chapters make it accessible, easy to read and translatable into a kind of emotional toolkit that can pragmatically help to integrate emotional awareness into daily living in ways that will enhance all aspects of who we are and who we wish to become.

    Drawing on her extensive 25 year career as a therapist, Jenny Florence’s books are a journey of self-awareness, connecting the intelligence and creative capacity of our mind with emotional knowledge and understanding. She has a unique ability to talk about the complexities of our mind and emotions in a language that is accessible and without jargon.

    “We cannot change our past but we can change our relationship to our past. In doing so, we create change within our present, which changes the shape of our future. If we work on the premise that we are the source of change, it becomes clear that we will need to listen to ourselves without fear or judgment.”

    Our emotions are a powerful, human commodity. They can be our strongest, most supportive ally or they can disable us, leaving us feeling blocked, out of control and in pieces. Jenny believes it is our ability to listen and decide that will make the difference between a breakthrough or a break down.
