‘scuse Me While I Kill This Guy

by Leslie Langtry

Then again, they don’t know she’s from a family of top secret assassins. Somewhere between leading a Girl Scout troop for her kindergartner–would nooses count for a knot badge?–and keeping their puppy from destroying the furniture, Gin now has to take out a new target.


Except this target has an incredibly hot Australian bodyguard who knows just how to make her weak in the knees. But with a traitor threatening to expose everything, Gin doesn’t have much time indulge her hormones. She’s got to find the leak and clear her assignment…or she’ll end up next on the Bombay family hit list.

All I Need Is You

by Julia London

When a wedding planner’s first gig teams her up with a sexy stuntman, will she crash and burn…or be airlifted to love?

Tall, lithe ex-stuntman Eli McCain may speak with a Texas drawl, but this modern-day cowboy prefers hurricane windsurfing to herding cattle. Along with three friends, he cofounded Thrillseekers Anonymous, an extreme sports club that caters to the ultrarich and superfamous. But when the club agrees to stage a huge—and hugely profitable—extreme sports–themed celebrity wedding, Eli gets furious; he’s still bitter about getting jilted at the altar and wants nothing to do with veils or vows.

Copper-haired chatterbox Marnie Banks dove headfirst into wedding planning after she was laid off from a dot-com start-up. The union of megawatt stars Olivia Dagwood and Vincent Vittorio may be her first solo wedding job, but it could make all her dreams come true: She’ll make Hollywood connections. She’ll finally move out of her parents’ house. And she’ll meet a decent guy, for once.

But when the wedding turns from extreme to extremely disastrous, Eli and Marnie must work together against the elements, their bickering clients, and their own smoldering attraction to save the day. Will the sparks flying between them ignite into something real and passionate…or will they both end up burned?

Faculty Of Fire

by Alex Kosh

Zachary Nickers has lived his whole life in the home of an ungrateful guardian who never saw his true potential. But when he’s recruited to attend an elite boarding school called The Academy with a covert mission, his intelligence is about to be tested to the limit. This is a world where Craftsmen (skilled users of magic) are trained, and with this schooling, can alter the course of good and evil forces. There are faculties of Air, Water and Earth to master at hand. But rote memorization is the least of Zach’s worries with Alice, a tempting young vampiress, seducing his attentions at every turn, not to mention some pretty potent cocktails, which in this school run as freely as tap water. Just when all of Zach’s defenses hit rock bottom, the Academy is invaded via teleport by Stone Trolls working for the Empire’s greatest enemy, the Tabernacle Emirate, everyone at school is taken prisoner. With the help of a kindly old vampire (who is actually Alice’s great grandfather), Zach, and his crew manage to escape and to fight back. But their sighs of relief might be a little too premature…

Behind the stone tower of The Academy, things are not always as they appear. And upon closer inspection, Zach and his comrades are about to discover that the Tabernacle Emirate might actually be a front for a dangerous power that just might be closer than they think. And it’s up them to uncover what motives the esteemed faculty really possesses. Forget veritas and the golden rule. At this academy, it’s every captive for himself…and the teachers aren’t necessarily as smart as they look.

It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers.

Joe Klingler’s debut novel twists from the shadows of a war long past to headlines hiding Washington secrets behind corporate incompetence when two warriors face off. Both skilled at violence. And deception. Both accustomed to winning.

Claire Ferreti, the sniper who will soon hunt him, sips sake in Washington D.C. with her lover, a young General whose specialty is rarely discussed.

When a boy finds a small machine, the rider and sniper embark on a collision course that leads to a typhoon-ravaged jungle, a test of skill and ideology, and Claire’s unconscious body bleeding in the mud. In an instant she becomes the hunted, a tool for survival, and an unforeseen threat as the General pursues her into a labyrinth of cyber-secrets where political expedience and financial reality collide like a fireball piercing steel pipe.
