How can one small-minded, angry person destroy the lives of so many people in her path, connecting them all together in a game of destruction and heartbreak? It is possible, but what pushes a person to enjoy inflicting pain to such an extent, leaving a trail of hate, anger, and defeat behind her, which only seems to make her stronger and more satisfied. Ms. Terri Plotski, owner of the Authors’ Book Agency, is that person, who, unknowingly, with a single thread of hate, has connected the lives of a small group of people, bringing them together with one single common denominator. Anger. The anger from this small group of people is building, but it has nowhere to go, or does it? Ms. Terri Plotski, owner of Authors’ Book Agency, has gone missing.

Blownup in Paradise Book by Deborah Brown

NEW RELEASE….
I’ve come a long way since inheriting my Aunt Elizabeth’s Tarpon Cove house and her beach cottages full of quirky residents. I strap a Glock to my thigh as easily as I slip into flip-flops.

Even Fab is going legit… mostly. When she’s hired to investigate some high-end boat thefts in Biscayne Bay, I go along to do what I do best. Chat up the help to get the real story.

Neither of us expected the case to explode—literally—and take out one of Miami’s richest men. And possibly a mistress, though no one’s found her body floating among the bits and pieces.

Somewhere in the Miami upper-crust’s phony smiles and even phonier alibis there’s someone who wanted to see Marshall Sacks dead. Someone willing to ruin Fab’s and my lives to keep their secret. It’ll take calling in every favor I’m owed to keep us out of trouble.

I rated this book 5 *****’s

My favorite among the Paradise series 

I so loved this story. Maddie and Fabiana never stop to amaze me with their friendship, adventures and their love life. Creole and Maddie is always my favorite couple. I was waiting for forever for these two and finally it happened. I cannot wait for their next adventure together. 

This book is full of twist laughter and above all swoon worthy. This book is hard to put it down. Love is worth fighting for. These two hot guys will do everything to protect their women though their women are both stubborn and fearless. 

My favorite among the series and am I looking forward for their happy forever after.

About the Author


I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Dear Broken Heart ~

You must be hurting deeply. Perhaps you’re also feeling overwhelmed and completely alone in this place of emptiness and grief. I’ve been where you are and my heart aches with yours. I want you to know there is someone who sees and someone who cares. His name is Jesus. The journey right now is dark and painful, but if you will travel with me using God’s word as our guide, it will eventually lead to a place of hope and restoration. A destination where God’s love ushers you into wholeness. Where His healing hand won’t just repair your shattered soul, but will establish you in the truth that you are deeply loved and understood. In contrast to your current sorrow, this may seem too good to be true. I get that, I’ve been there. At this point, I’m only asking you to trust that He is able. I invite you to spend these next six weeks at the feet of Jesus and allow Him to enter into your wounded heart through this very place of brokenness. Will you give Him permission to transform you in a way that far exceeds your own expectations?

~ Colleen Meissner Married for the first time at 42. Colleen knows firsthand the pain of heartbreak, being single longer than expected, and the battle against fear and insecurity.

Meet the Author:

 

I earned a Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University in 2010 and have been mentoring women for over a decade. The most common area of counsel I provide is to single women not ashamed to admit they want to be married and have someone to share their life with. These women often without realizing it, are battling soul wounds (emotional and heart wounds) from their past that are preventing them from fulfilling this deeply held desire of marriage and family.

I consider there to be no greater privilege than to have women trust me with their deepest struggles and fears and to travel along side of them on their journey from a place of being held in bondage by lies (“I am fat, ugly, a loser, unlovable…”) to a place of freedom and victory. I know this journey well, I have traveled it; it is hard and it is long, and you cannot do it alone. There are seemingly impossible hills to climb, valleys to crawl out of and side-roads leading to nowhere. Perhaps more than a mentor, I am a tour-guide, leading you as you navigate your way to healing and overcoming those things that have kept you from embracing the fullness of life that the Lord came to give you (John 10:10).

In Anything For Love….
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before ping in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa’s Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so pe right into this fun, sexy romance.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

I rated this book 5 *****’s

Sexy, hilarious and emotional read 

I so loved and enjoyed reading Charlotte and Beau’s love story. This is such a beautiful story to read. It is so sexy, hilarious and emotional read. It has the family love and friendship. Beau not only an eye sore, workaholic but will blow your mind away. He is the sweetest guy that will make his woman happy even doing little things for her. I hope this guy is real. Many women will make him boyfriend of the year.

I loved the setting too. I bet if this location existed, it is beyond gorgeous. 

Love is so powerful. Charlotte heals Beau’s broken heart. She is not only as sweet as Twix that melt in your mouth but your heart too. This woman is simply beautiful. She will not only put a hole in your underwear but will laugh out loud with her writing. This book is a must read for me.

EMBRACING HER HEART
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]

Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.


Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.


Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed’s new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace’s sister Morgyn’s business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn’t ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

3 Ways the Internet Is an Invaluable Resource for Book Lovers

Do you remember the days of going into the local book shop to read the jackets of the latest books on the best seller list? While some had authors you followed religiously, others were new writers who caught your attention. You’d spend hours reading jackets while adding and subtracting from the pile that was growing on the table where you sat to scan the books you were interested in.

 

Royal Free Photo 

Even though you will still find those who are happy to spend an afternoon in Barnes & Noble, Borders, Waldenbooks or Books-a-Million, all the evidence points to the fact that those who shop for new books online by far outnumber those who visit brick-and-mortar shops. Why do you think that is? It could be the following 3 ways the Internet has become an invaluable resource for book lovers.

1. Social Media

From Facebook to Instagram, you won’t find a social platform that doesn’t have a plethora of pages dedicated to literature. Even YouTube, the second largest social network, has channels dedicated to the various genres and if you are lucky, you can even find authors reading excerpts from their latest books or explaining how the inspiration for the book came about. Even your own group of online ‘friends’ will share their latest literary finds and if you think this isn’t one of the key ways in which book lovers find new reading material, you may be among the few yet to create a social profile!

2. Blogs and Reviews

Then you will find blogs for book lovers so that you can see what others are saying about the latest releases from your favorite authors. In fact, you can even use the search engines to find blogs and reviews for book lovers if you can’t make up your mind whether or not to buy a book that has caught your attention. Many people find that they are more likely to buy a book based on what others are saying as opposed to the Madison Avenue marketing hype which almost always leads them astray. Most blogs and reviews offer a place where you can ask questions in the “Comments” section and this can tip the scales if you are yet undecided on any given book or new author.

3. Digital Books for Instant Download

It would seem that technology would leave us with more time on our hands, but unfortunately, that is often not the case! Even though we are living life in the fast lane, it’s like going through life in rush hour where traffic is jammed for hours on end. One of the real benefits of the Internet as a resource for book lovers is the availability for instant download on almost any book in print. Older books may not yet have been transcribed, but for at least a decade, any new book was published in the digital realm. Even authors now upload chapters of books to their publishers in digital format rather than posting hard copies as in days of old.
No matter where you happen to be at any given moment, the Internet makes it possible to find, buy, and read the latest books by your favorite authors. Are you still wondering how the Internet is an invaluable resource for book lovers? If so, it’s time to check out the Kindle app and Kindle e-books on Amazon. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and in the case of the Internet, that insatiable hunger for reading is rewarded with instant gratification.

What if you married a man who didn’t care about you?

And what if you were a boy whose only happy memories were a few soft words uttered now and again by a beautiful neighbor ten years your senior and whose voice and face and figure, back-lighted by the golden light of the setting sun, were all that would sustain you when your life was threatened every minute of every day in the mire of a squalid war nobody wanted?

This is the story of Jacqueline and Tommy, their lives stubbornly paralleling with no convergence in sight until one cold night she sees him starving to death on a crowded street filled with happy tourists.

The town is famous in the region for its chronic stillness…Consequently, every ambitious person who grows up there eventually leaves in search of better opportunities.

Life in Mbengwi, Cameroon, is not easy for Austin-or for anyone else. While growing up, he bears witness to the worst parts of life and the cruelties of human nature. These things keep his homeland trapped in a cycle of misery and suffering. In a country overrun by poverty, death, unrest, and corruption, he sees no future for himself. The only way to escape the cycle is to flee to a place Austin believes to be free of all these troubles, a place where he hopes his dreams will come true: the United States of America.

However, when Austin arrives in this supposed promised land, he is met with a crushing revelation. He finds America to be rife with all the same problems he thought he’d escaped, merely in different forms. Rather than give in to disappointment, he decides to combat these obstacles with a firm resolve. Before long, though, these obstacles threaten to overwhelm him. This realization prompts Austin to rethink how he sees the world and the challenges it throws at him.

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

A book full of inspiration, failure and triumph 
 
This is a book that you will enjoy reading and reflect about your life and how blessed you are. This book is so inspirational. It will touch your heart is so many ways. I can relate to some of the scenes especially while growing up. People do not know how blessed they are and should be grateful. 

It is a book about failure and triumph. Being poor has many privileges. You will be inspired when you read the very first few chapters of the book. In order to be successful, you will encounter so many failures in life. You will learned from your mistake and live with it. This book is about second chance of love. It is a very sweet book. I enjoyed reading this book so much. If you love to travel, make this on your bucket list and begin a new adventure.

Book Description:

In the not-too-distant future, Italy is in disarray. It has voted to leave the EU in an attempt to regain control of its laws, finances and commerce. Even so, the country’s economy is shrinking and its national debt rising. There is a marked escalation, too, in unemployment, bank loans and immigration. Production and service companies are in difficulty. The only thriving business areas are the black market and organised crime. There is discontent and protest on all sides.

In Florence, the local Mafia boss, more accustomed to gunrunning and trading in plutonium, is involved in organising a silent auction for the sale of one of the world’s most valuable lost paintings – a sixteenth-century masterpiece, which was appropriated in World War II by Stalin’s Trophy Brigade. A British art expert is set to buy the picture on behalf of his client, a South American billionaire – yet surprisingly two Italian undercover intelligence agents, acting as antique dealers, submit the winning bid.

All the while, human beings continue to harm the Earth by destroying land, sea, air, animals and trees. Global climate change, polluting the atmosphere, depleting the ozone layer: these are some of man’s crimes against Nature. But time is running out. Nature has lost patience with humans. Unless something is done immediately to reverse the destruction of the ecosystem, Nature will retaliate by deploying the terrifying forces at her command. And as a first step in wreaking her revenge, she instigates a reign of terror by the deadliest creature on Earth.

I rated this book 4 ****’s

A book about friendship, lies, disaster and love  
 
This book is an amazing read. It is a book about friendship and their wildest dream. It is a book about lies and individuals just want their evil needs to conquer and ruin other people. It is a book about disaster. Humans are the only ones that ruin the earth and the nature. When you do not take care of nature, it will haunt you and  make big damages that kill thousands of people and their homes. This book is about love which is my favorite part. Love moves in a mysterious way and happens to two people who are deeply in-love with each other. 

This book is an amazing read. It is full of adventures especially if Italy is in your bucket list. The book is so informative too which can help and prevent if that disaster will happens to you. It is also a book about compassion which is my other favorite character of a person in real life. This book has an everything you need to enjoy your alone time and reflect life.

Meet the Author:

 

Born in Surbiton, Surrey in 1944, Alan Moore lives in Barnes, SW London, with his wife, Amber. They have two daughters and a son, who between them have two boys and two girls with another boy expected in May. Alan was educated at Oundle School in Northamptonshire and at London University, where, as an external student, he obtained a BA degree in English. Thereafter, for 25 years, he single-handedly ran his own book publishing company, which at one stage was producing up to 20 titles a year. Now, at the age of 74, he has self-published his first novel.
Interview with Alan Moore:

What made you write a book that tackles the topic of mosquitos as a threat?

In a complete reversal of normal experience, I wasn’t bothered by mosquitoes when I was younger.  It’s only as I’ve grown older that they’ve targeted me. When I go to Nice, they seem to know I’ve arrived back in town and line up on the windowsill waiting to bite me again!  It’s because of this that I decided to write a book that highlights the menace of these potentially dangerous creatures.

 

Do you have another profession besides writing?

Yes, I’m a part-time book publisher.  For 25 years I single-handedly ran my own publishing company and at one point was producing 20 titles a year.

 

What is the last great book you’ve read?

The three volumes about Cicero by Robert Harris: Imperium, Lustrum and Dictator.

Your favourite travel spot?

I think that’s probably self-evident.  Florence, Italy.

 

What is your next project?

I’ve started writing a book which is based on my younger years and my relationship with my godfather, an extraordinary man.  During the time I knew him (he died in 1973), I met fascinating people, I did extraordinary things, I was spoilt beyond belief, and I learnt to love and respect my elders.  The provisional title of the book is Uncle Cyril and Me.

Content Rating: PG-13 + M (There are some descriptive sex scenes but not throughout)

Book Description:

Do the vast amounts of information and technology available hold humans hostage? Does analog communication create a vulnerability?

The political climate in the world is unnerving. North Korea is running missile tests, but where are they getting their deadly supplies? Meanwhile, terrorists are hiding in plain sight, using American technology that is out on display in libraries and museums for the world to see, but are using analog methods to gather and assemble their information. No internet searches equal no red flags which lets the bad guys believe they are operating undetected. But the Cyber Assassin Technology Services (CATS) team is on the job. As Juan and Julie Rodríguez send their operatives out across the globe to track down these foot soldiers also known as Analog Information Mules, they’ll discover the horrible potential treats, and learn about each other along the way.

Mike and Marge control ePETRO, an oil shipping business with offices in London and New York, but they don’t have the same business goals in mind. Marge intends to sell the North Koreans uranium in addition to oil obtained illegally from the government-sanctioned Middle East. But Mike may have other plans, mainly, keeping the profits of these sales for himself. Then there is the mysterious Steven Christopher, who oversees the AIMs, and is working several angles behind the scenes. Steven is the only one trusted by both Marge and Mike, but why?

The CATs team has feet on the ground, with Ernesto and Tyler following two women through Washington, D.C. as they visit the Smithsonian looking for nuclear fusion processes and down the Texas coast where a dangerous package makes its way onto a ship bound for Asia. Jamie, an Irish man with a heartbreaking past, joins the team in Texas and finds not only a new job, but acceptance. George and Summit travel across Asia following the oil and some suspiciously mislabeled furniture. After a rocky start at being paired up, Mercedes and Brayson head to Panama and are watching a previously known Dark Net data center, but Mercedes is soon extracted to help out in D.C. She quickly becomes embroiled in Steven Christopher’s world. Brayson is left behind alone in Panama and, still recovering from a lost love, learns that he can’t truly be a part of the team until he has forgiven himself.

While Juan stays with Quip and his supercomputer ICABOD, tracking his team members and relaying constantly updated information at the team’s nerve center, Julie heads to London. Julie finds herself in the center of all the trouble as she goes undercover in the ePETRO offices. When Julie disappears, Juan drops everything to find her. Quip loops his wife EZ, a Unified Communications expert, to help monitor and control the CATS team movements so that operatives can find the culprits in their different theaters of operation.

Award-winning authors, Breakfield and Burkey, take readers on a new techno-thriller adventure with their 9th book in The Enigma Series. The Enigma Dragon is a chilling journey across four continents, and twelve cities that uncovers terrifying possibilities of what is to become of our world if the CATS team cannot defeat our enemies.

Lost at Windy Corner Book By Aaron Linsdau

Lost at Windy Corner: Lessons From Denali On Goals and Risks
Lost at Windy Corner: Lessons From Denali On Goals and Risks by [Linsdau, Aaron]

Lost near lethal crevasses and cliffs in a blinding whiteout blizzard is the last place anyone would want to be…

Windy Corner on Denali has claimed lives, fingers, and toes. What would make someone brave lethal weather, crevasses, and slick ice to attempt to summit North America’s highest mountain? Denali has claimed over one hundred lives. It seems like the place for risky adrenaline seekers.

 

 

In this book, the author shares the lessons Denali teaches on managing goals and risks. Everyone takes chances at some time in their lives, even if it’s driving down the highway. Becoming a risk manager rather than a risk taker is what will keep you alive during difficult times.

Experience the cold, solitude, and uncertainty of life on high mountains. Apply the message, build resilience, and overcome adversities in your life.

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

A beautiful book of  inspirations and survival 
 
My husband will enjoy this book as much as I do. It is a beautiful book of inspirations and survival. I loved the photos and the quotes at the end of the chapters. This book is full of adventures. I loved how the main character is fearless and enjoy the best times of his life. I cannot imagine how gorgeous the view is. I would rather take photographs than climb as I have fear of heights. This book is not only  amazing but the tips are very helpful too. If you love the wild scenery like Alaska, this book will amazes you. I enjoyed reading this book.

Antarctic Tears: Determination, adversity, and the pursuit of a dream at the bottom of the world

Antarctic Tears: Determination, adversity, and the pursuit of a dream at the bottom of the world by [Linsdau, Aaron]

Emotions run high in this true polar adventure. It’s a story of triumph, harrowing danger, and outright adventure. In 2012, Aaron Linsdau left his entire life behind.

Gone was the engineering career. He told his family and girlfriend that he wanted to pursue a dream to do something no other American had ever accomplished. He wanted to be the first to ski from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back without aid or support. Alone.

The journey to the South Pole covers over 700 miles through the most forbidding frozen terrain on the planet. The temperature is always below zero and gale force winds routinely roar across the ice. The polar plateau is devoid of life. There are no plants, animals, or insects. Antarctica provides no shelter, no protection, and is unforgiving of any mistake.

But before the expedition was to start, there was much to do. Linsdau trekked 100 miles across the Greenland tundra. He skied across Yellowstone in the winter, camping in -45 degree temperatures. Towing tires up mountains and eating 4000 calories a day was preparation for Antarctica.

Previous expeditions have lost tents, helplessly watching them blow over the horizon. Many explorers have quit or been rescued. What began as a brave adventure into the unknown turned into a battle for survival.

Linsdau takes the reader to Antarctica. They experience incredible storms, skiing blind through whiteouts, crossing invisible crevasses, and skirting disaster. The book shows what happened every day of the expedition.

The air is cold enough to freeze water in seconds and cause frostbite in minutes. Only outer space is less hospitable. Driven by passion, he sacrifices nearly everything to make his dream come true. This is a story about personal discovery, testing the limits of human endurance, total dedication to achieving a goal, and never giving up even when both body and equipment fail.



There were many surprises during Aaron Linsdau’s expedition to the South Pole… 


Antarctic Tears is also available as an audiobook in a 9CD box set or as MP3 files on a USB thumb drive.

“I finished your book and it was a great read. I still cannot fathom someone subjecting himself to that kind of environment. -Pulling all of your own supplies, and doing it solo for several months is incredible. I’ve read a lot of human endurance books, but your trip ranks right up there in difficulty.”   – Ed Lavino, Jackson, WY, author of Prevailing Westerlies
