DESCRIPTION:

Margaret Manning has spent the better part of her life conforming to the expectations of other people–first her father, then her husband. To break from this tradition, she becomes a writer of cozy mysteries and is in the process of living out her dream of opening her own bookstore–The Indie Book Nook–featuring self-published authors. But when she perceives her husband is behaving similarly to some of the unscrupulous characters in her books, she fears that she will lose him or–maybe even worse–that she is losing her mind.

While abandonment is nothing new to Margaret–she hasn’t seen or heard from her mother since she was six years old–the fear of losing her husband is devastating. As she struggles to find the strength to mend her shattered marriage, she must also cope with her obscure health issues, her daughter’s precarious behavior, a disingenuous neighbor, and an unpredictable mother-in-law.

Who in her life is a friend and who is more of a foe is not always apparent, and it’s up to Margaret to figure it all out.

DESCRIPTION:

Sabriel meets Romeo and Juliet in this stunning and atmospheric novel—the first in a duology—from the author of Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound.

When the mysterious fog of the Ruining crept over the world, the living died and the dead rose. Only the walled city of Viyara was left untouched.

The heirs of the city’s most powerful—and warring—families, Mahyanai Romeo and Juliet Catresou, share a love deeper than duty, honor, even life itself. But the magic laid on the Juliet at birth compels her to punish the enemies of her clan—and Romeo has just killed her cousin Tybalt. Which means he must die.

Paris Catresou has always wanted to serve his family by guarding the Juliet. But when his ward tries to escape her fate, magic goes terribly wrong—killing her and leaving Paris bound to Romeo. If he wants to discover the truth of what happened, Paris must delve deep into the city, ally with his worst enemy . . . and perhaps turn against his own clan.

Mahyanai Runajo only wants to protect her city—but she’s the only one who believes it’s in peril. In her desperate hunt for information, she accidentally pulls Juliet from the mouth of death—and finds herself bound to the bitter, angry girl. Runajo quickly discovers Juliet might be the one person who can help her recover the secret to saving Viyara.

Both pairs will find friendship where they least expect it. Both will find that Viyara holds more secrets and dangers than anyone ever expected. And outside the walls, death is waiting. . . .

“First Mistake” is both a love story about defying the odds (even certain death) and a spiritual memoir about the search for identity, partnership, and the meaning of life.

For 40 years, he has been with her on her journey to make sense of the world around her — from South African Apartheid to the AIDS epidemic to the fight for marriage equality — and with her as she grew in love, faith, and purpose. “First Mistake” is a memoir that should speak to anyone who, like the author, is still on a quest for the meaning of life.

It begins with a disappearance…
In the waning days of World War II, the Obake Neko is the last surviving Sen-Toku–a huge secret aircraft-carrier submarine created by the Imperial Japanese Navy. As the war comes to an end, the Obake Neko sets sail back to Japan with a cargo of unimaginable value. In the chaos of Japanese surrender, the clandestine vessel and its crew vanish in the seas of the South Pacific.
Fifty-five years after the war's end, former U.S. Navy pilot, Bud Brennan breaks into Pearl Harbor's submarine museum in Hawaii. Bud's son, Mike, is still raw from the death of his wife and grappling with a new career but still jumps in to help his dad.
But when Bud's antics garner the attention of the Navy's JAG, Mike realizes his father may possess knowledge about the near-mythical Obake Neko and its fabled cargo–knowledge that is also of great value to the Japanese Yakuza.
Now, Mike must scramble to learn the whole truth of his father's decades-old connection with the legendary Japanese submarine and fight to defend his father from relentless military authorities and deadly Yakuza operatives.
Even decades later, the Obake Neko and its legendary cargo are still worth killing over. Can Mike discover the truth and protect his dad before deadly assailants succeed in silencing Bud forever?

Get Book One in the brutal, passionate, and stunning MEN OF BLOOD series, a brand new Medieval Romance series from Dragonblade Publishing. Purchase or read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

1410 A.D. – A man of honor, Sir Tristin LaDeux is the fearless and fierce captain of the Homme du Sang, a chivalric order, called to defend The Church and enforce its edicts. Known throughout Europe for his dedication to his cause, Tristin thinks nothing of embarking on a mission to arrest a common woman, suspected of witchcraft, and bring her to justice.

Practical, intelligent, and beautiful, Bell Heather Caire is determined to make her own way in life, using her skills and knowledge as the village apothecary. She spends her days making salves and powders, worrying not for the ways and means of men — especially the selfish, depraved Willem Mason, a man as determined to have her as she is determined to be left alone.

When Tristin comes upon Bell Heather bathing in a waterfall, he is immediately enchanted, but when he discovers that she is the witch he’s been ordered to arrest, everything within him revolts. His head tells him to follow orders, but his heart and his body crave the lush little wench with dirt beneath her nails and light in her soul.

As Tristin gives in to his desire for Bell Heather, she realizes she wants more than just herbs and solitude–she wants Tristin and the fire he ignites in her blood. But can these two have what they want most when the very thing Tristin believes in is trying to destroy him? And does Bell Heather have a chance against an evil man willing to risk everything to break her?

Can the man of blood and the lovely bloom find a place for themselves in a world ready to tear them apart?

The Blood and The Bloom is a part of the MEN OF BLOOD series, but can be enjoyed as a stand alone.
