Channie Belks is trying to hide the fact she’s a witch.

When Women Were Warriors Book I: The Warrior’s Path

by Catherine M. Wilson

When she was a child, the author happily identified with all the male heroes she read about in stories that began, “Once upon a time, a young man went out to seek his fortune.” But she would have been delighted to discover even one story like that with a female protagonist. Since she never did find the story she was looking for all those years ago, she decided to write it.

In Book I of the trilogy, Tamras arrives in Merin’s house to begin her apprenticeship as a warrior, but her small stature causes many, including Tamras herself, to doubt that she will ever become a competent swordswoman. To make matters worse, the Lady Merin assigns her the position of companion, little more than a personal servant, to a woman who came to Merin’s house, seemingly out of nowhere, the previous winter, and this stranger wants nothing to do with Tamras.

And Justice For Her: Boxed Set Of Mystery, Suspense, And Romance Thrillers

by Brenda Hill

Is it ever acceptable to commit murder?

What if, as a good citizen, you waited for justice, but it never came?

In this stunning mystery thriller, a deadly secret society is dispensing justice by killing society’s undesirables, and the hits are so diabolically clever that no one even suspects it’s murder – until a traumatized food critic stumbles onto the scene.

Newspaper food critic Madison Young lives a safe, controlled life in a quiet California town below Big Bear, afraid of the dark, afraid to take chances. Since the night her parents were slaughtered, she’s haunted by his threats to return for her. But she’s forced out of her sheltered life when a paroled sex offender is murdered, and her out-of-town editor needs her to cover the story.

Reluctantly interviewing a witness, Madison jots down one word, a seemingly insignificant word that will link to a chain of murders across the country and to a secret society, a vast and deadly organization whose tentacles invade her own life. She traces clues, shocked when they reveal a connection to the man who murdered her parents, horrified when warnings to stop the investigation become deadly. When her editor dies mysteriously and a family member is threatened, Madison discovers no one is who they seem, and few can be trusted.

With the Society closing in, she turns to family friend, San Bernardino homicide detective Dexter Quinn, to unravel the deceit before she runs out of time. Together, they discover a terrifying adversary, one who’ll stop at nothing to protect the Society’s secrets.

Just Good Friends

by Rosalind James

Some bets were made to be lost.

Kate Lamonica isn’t Koti James’s type. Too small. Too dark. And heaps too much work. So it’s an easy bet that he can be her friend for six weeks without making a move on her, no matter what his mates would have said.

Kate can’t believe she’s made the bet at all. New Zealand had seemed like the perfect escape from the stalker who’d threatened first her peace of mind, and then her life. She certainly doesn’t need any more trouble. Why on earth has she agreed to spend time with a Maori rugby player who’s far too handsome and charming for his own good–and knows it?

But there’s more than one game Koti’s good at playing …

The Dead Hand Of Sweeney County

by David L. Bradley

It was just your average day surveying: discovering an abandoned cemetery and a lynching tree, dealing with a corrupt banker and an ax-wielding ghost. Then Addison fell in love with Eleanor, and things got scary.

Addison Kane is thirty-nine, a workaholic loner whose best friends are his landlady, a good book, and a shot of Irish whiskey. One rainy day while working out of town, he meets and falls in love with Eleanor the History Lady, who excites and challenges him like no woman he has ever known. Is this it? After all these years, has he finally found The One? What does her husband think?

At work, Addie begins investigating the Conley Land Trust and its creator, the dynamic Elizabeth Theodora Conley Burroughs, whose death in 1968 did nothing to loosen her grip on the land. Researching the trust, now valued at eleven and a half million dollars, he meets Dick the Turd, a ruthless banker with a plan to steal it. Then Addie sees the ghost of Isaac Cooper, and Isaac begins haunting his dreams, seeking justice.

With help and advice from instrument man Steve, Lawyer Frank, and retired Army Ranger Sergeant-Major John Tyler, Addie must try to thwart the banker. Somehow he must figure out exactly how to satisfy Isaac’s ghost, so he can sleep again. And if he’s ever going to find The One and settle down, now is the time.

It’s a hell of a job, but someone’s gotta do it.

My Emily

by Matt Patterson

This book tells the story of a hurting family, an amazing little girl and a mysteriously faithful God.

Emily wasn’t born perfect – so one might think.

She was born with Down Syndrome and many would jump to the conclusion that she would have very little hope for a life with any significance. Two years later came the diagnosis of leukemia. What little hope remaining turned to no hope whatsoever – or so one might think.

The life of this little girl, with all its perceived imperfections, had great meaning. Her loving nature and courage touched the hearts of everyone she met. She also taught them how to value their own lives – even with their many “imperfections.”

Note: A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will help families with special needs children, those who are battling pediatric cancers, as well as parents grieving the loss of a little one.
