51HyZCpOPYL.jpg

by Danny Hauptman

Rise from the Ashes is Danny Hauptman’s first book – a shocking memoir about his life. He lays it all bare – his unhappy childhood and formative years, his experiences as a member of the Croatian Special Forces and his highly successful career in the security industry. The reader will inevitably be flabbergasted by the horrors inflicted on the author by his abusive parents and amazed by the author’s description of his life as a soldier, bodyguard, private military contractor and security guard protecting ships from Somali pirates.

by Alicia Quigley

Will passion revive her long-suffering heart or will she be doomed to a loveless arranged marriage?

This is the After Dark, steamy, sexy version of Letitia’s story. If you want the Traditional, no sex version, please see “An Honest Deception: Letitia’s Traditional Regency Romance.”

After the death of her wastrel husband, Alfred, Lady Letitia Morgan wants nothing more than to settle into the peaceful life of a widow. Her limited finances are enough to provide Letty and her two children that simple life.

Phillip Masham, Marquess of Eynsford and long-time friend of Francis, Lord Exencour, finds himself very much interested in Letty. Unfortunately for him, Letty’s opinion of men of the ton was quite soured by the late Baron Morgan. Not one to give up, the creative Marquess becomes Mr. Phillip Markham, a solicitor in the Inner Temple, in hopes that Letty will get to know him for who his is, beyond his title.

However, her well-meaning cousin demands that she remarry as soon as is proper; indeed, he feels it to be her duty as a woman and to her family. To that end, he moves to arrange her marriage to the Bishop of Mainwaring, someone for whom Letty has no feelings whatsoever.

Letty and Phillip embark upon an affair that may deepen into love, but will it survive the truth?

Bass Reeves Frontier Marshal Volume 2

51VMWOEdOJL

by Milton Davis (Author), Mel Odom (Author), Michael Black (Author), Derrick Ferguson (Author)

In the years after the Civil War, the greatest lawman to operate in the untamed wilderness frontiers was U.S. Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves. An ex-slave, Reeves took on the silver badge because he believe all men to be equal in the eyes of the law and so he would become an agent of that justice. In his actual career he captured over 3,000 felons and survived fourteen gun battles. A crack shot with both rifle and pistol, he was never wounded once.

Here, in this second volume of an ongoing series, the Deputy Marshal finds himself teaming up with a spitfire of a she-devil known as Quickshot Katy, chasing down desperate train robbers, protecting an army gold shipment and defending a vicious killer against an entire town demanding blood. Writers Milton Davis, Mel Odom, Michael Black and Derrick Ferguson have saddled up to deliver four new action packed western yarns starring the one and only Bass Reeves – Frontier Lawman.

Hold Back the Sun by [Bell, Warren]

Hold Back the Sun

by Warren Bell

It’s 1942.

High adventure fills the lives of American and Dutch fighting men in the opening months of the Pacific War. Brave women share their dangers and their love while empires crumble.

Exhilarated by savaging the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, The Japanese Navy moves quickly to seize the rich mineral resources of Malaya and the Dutch East Indies.

Two U.S. Asiatic Fleet lieutenants join the unequal struggle on the sea and in the air. Frank Rhea flies a floatplane off the old cruiser, U.S.S. Marblehead: scouting, spotting fall of gunshot, and attacking submarines. Jack Sewell commands the Gunnery Department of an equally ancient World War I destroyer: directing gun and torpedo attacks against warships and aircraft.

In Java, Captain Garret Laterveer takes a squadron of obsolescent fighters to Singapore and then Borneo to battle nimble Japanese Zeros.

Brave Dutch and British women enchant Frank, Jack, and Garret as the Japanese attacks roll down through the islands. Frank adores Dr. Cinta van Wely, who lives under the threat of revenge by a Japanese colonel she once insulted. Pamela Mallory, an exiled English noblewoman, ensnares Jack. Garret falls for Catherine van Zweden, a skilled nurse. Occasional victories boost the hopes of the Allies while colonial empires collapse around them. Then the Allies stake everything on the climactic Battle of the Java Sea.
