DESCRIPTION:

A riveting fantasy, an adventure story, a poignant tale of love and heroism and friendship, A Deck of Cards is a novel by acclaimed author Daniel Kelley.

While playing a game of Speed in their family room, 19-year-old Alyssa Lewis and her 5-year-old sister Sammy witness the appearance of a man who claims to be the Jack of Diamonds. As implausible as this seems, several others – the acerbic Queen of Spades, the seductive Jack of Clubs, and the somewhat slow King of Diamonds among them, follow the Jack’s manifestation.

Alyssa and her best friend Mags find themselves fascinated by nearly every aspect of the cards’ lives, both in and out of the deck. And as they pursue explanations while getting to know them, intrigues abound. The Jacks of Hearts and Spades use chicanery and guile in an attempt to acquire life for themselves. The Jack of Clubs enters a relationship with Alyssa’s friend Tonya that can’t possible survive the few days of life the cards are allotted every decade or so. Alyssa and Mags find themselves exploring their own tangled past in their search for what the future will hold.

Mysteries come alive, and enticing secrets are revealed. And Alyssa learns more about who she truly is than she thought possible.

A Deck of Cards is a tantalizing story, an enchanting narrative. Kelley’s works are known for their phenomenally real characters and scenarios, and A Deck of Cards is yet another masterpiece. Brilliantly written and laced with rich humor, this 72,000-word novel is the ideal companion for a quiet evening, a day at the beach, or pretty much anywhere.

DESCRIPTION:

From a beguiling voice in Mexican fiction comes an astonishing novel–her first to be translated into English–about a mysterious child with the power to change a family’s history in a country on the verge of revolution.

From the day that old Nana Reja found a baby abandoned under a bridge, the life of a small Mexican town forever changed. Disfigured and covered in a blanket of bees, little Simonopio is for some locals the stuff of superstition, a child kissed by the devil. But he is welcomed by landowners Francisco and Beatriz Morales, who adopt him and care for him as if he were their own. As he grows up, Simonopio becomes a cause for wonder to the Morales family, because when the uncannily gifted child closes his eyes, he can see what no one else can–visions of all that’s yet to come, both beautiful and dangerous. Followed by his protective swarm of bees and living to deliver his adoptive family from threats–both human and those of nature–Simonopio’s purpose in Linares will, in time, be divined.

Set against the backdrop of the Mexican Revolution and the devastating influenza of 1918, The Murmur of Bees captures both the fate of a country in flux and the destiny of one family that has put their love, faith, and future in the unbelievable.

DESCRIPTION:

They think I’m too wild to run my father’s company. Maybe they’re right.

Graduating college should have given me some relief, but not when my father was waiting in the wings to hand over his railroad company.

The world thought he’d gone mad. A tycoon handing off a man’s man type of business to his daughter!

To a GIRL! Especially when he has a son.

But my brother isn’t interested in anything that doesn’t have surf and sun involved.

Though I’m not ready for that kind of responsibility, I have no choice. Luckily enough, my dad’s righthand man, Rogan, is there to back me up.

My brother’s best friend. Go figure.

I need his help more than ever now, though. My father passed away unexpectedly, leaving me to fend off the wolves alone.

Though my handsome new sidekick is less than thrilled to have a younger woman running the show, we make an incredible team.

And then he asserts himself. As much as I hate to admit it, the man is hotter than sin and has my full attention.

Unfortunately, our passion gets in the way and the board forces my man to leave.

It’s time for me to grow up. To fully step into my father’s shoes.

That’s all fine and dandy, but I don’t wear flats.

I’m a high-heel kinda gal, and I get to choose who stands beside me and behind me.

The only man I want at my back is the one I want in my bed.

Every good girl deserves a bad boy. ~ Weston

I always get what I want. Every time.

But not with her.

The beautiful woman my father forced on me through our billion-dollar firm has curves that make me ache.

This single mother with brilliant business sense has a side hustle and still kicks ass at my firm daily.

There’s no way in hell she’s giving in. No matter what I try.

Not even when Valentine’s rolls around. And I pull out all the stops.

Her denial has me needing her like I’ve never needed anyone else.

Where this girl is concerned, I’m not asking for a friend.

I’m asking for me. For today. Tomorrow. Forever.

This is book 1 in a 3 book series. You will have to read books 2 and 3 to complete the story.

DESCRIPTION:

She craved his touch–and they had yet to kiss.

Book 5 in the exciting new Soldiers and Soulmates series from bestselling author Alexa Aston has arrived. A widowed duchess at loose ends, longing for love. A colonel with no family who unexpectedly becomes an earl. Two stubborn individuals who are drawn together by passion–and also find friendship . . .

Dalinda Baker wed the Duke of Gilford after one brief meeting, escaping a cruel, unloving father before he could betroth her to a stranger. The much older duke gives her confidence, stability, and two sons before he dies of a heart attack a dozen years into their marriage. With her young boys away at school, Dalinda is at loose ends and visits her brother, where she meets a sinfully handsome stranger.

Rhys Armistead toils as a working-class groom when he is plucked from obscurity by the Earl of Sheffington, whose sickly son might never live to succeed him. Rhys’ mother is a distant cousin to the earl and Rhys is next in line to become Lord Sheffington if the heir apparent passes. Treating Rhys as a second son, the earl purchases a commission in the army for Rhys, who spends a dozen years fighting on the Continent until he receives word that he has inherited the earldom.

Turning to Dez, his closest friend from the war who recently returned to England when he unexpectedly became an earl, Rhys visits the new Lord Torrington–and is taken with Dez’s twin sister, Dalinda, a vivacious widow. The couple spends one magical night together but Rhys realizes the duchess is far superior to him socially and offers her friendship instead of marriage.

Can Dalinda convince Rhys that they are a perfect match–or will his stubbornness keep them apart forever?

Find the answer in bestselling author Alexa Aston’s fifth book of Soldiers and Soulmates, To Win a Widow. Each book in Soldiers and Soulmates is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

She’s in my face, crazy one minute and begging me for attention the next.

Her father’s status and popularity in his run for President of the United States has him worried about his only little girl.

And that “girl” isn’t too thrilled with having a shadow, especially one she’s not supposed to touch either.

I used to be one.

Things heat up fast when we’re pushed into a maze of confusion.

Things aren’t at all what they seem, and I’m not even sure the Senator’s little girl is, in fact, his.

Time to back off and catch my breath because unfortunately I’m falling for this one, and she’s way out of my league.

It’s only when her life is in danger that I realize backing off isn’t an option.

She’s mine, and her pretty little body is mine to protect, no matter what.

There’s just one rule. Don’t touch the asset.

Hard to obey when she wants these hands all over her.
