Excerpt - Dead Reckoning by Rachelle McCalla

Dead Reckoning by Rachelle McCalla Risky maneuvers are no novelty for stunt pilot Ginny McCutcheon…until danger follows her to the ground. Someone's targeting Ginny—and former air force pilot Ben McAlister won't rest until he finds the culprit. He'll stay glued to Ginny's side until she's safe, whether the stubborn beauty accepts him there or not. Ginny tries to resent Ben's protectiveness—and instead finds herself falling for the man whose fierce determination so perfectly matches hers. But trusting Ben means going home, something she can't bear to do. Until someone gets very close to grounding her—and Ben—forever. Excerpt of chapter one: She didn't have time to blink. Ginny McCutcheon flew her plane low over the wide-open high plains of eastern Wyoming and was just pulling out of a loop-the-loop when she spotted another plane bearing down on her. Her evasive maneuver was pure reflex—she snapped into a vertical bank, swerving off t

Excerpt - Dangerous Reunion by Sandra Robbins

Dangerous Reunion by Sandra Robbins A murderer on tiny, safe Ocracoke Island? Deputy Sheriff Kate Michaels doesn't want to believe it—until someone at the crime scene starts shooting at her. Then Nashville detective Brock Gentry shows up. Brock broke her heart years ago when he called off their engagement. Now, torn apart by a case, Brock seeks sanctuary on the island. Yet as the threats against Kate escalate—and Kate's sisters are targeted—she turns to the man she's never stopped loving. Even if their reunion is more dangerous than it ever was before. Excerpt of chapter one: Murder didn't happen on Ocracoke Island. But with a gunshot wound in the center of Jake Morgan's back, Hyde County senior deputy Kate Michaels knew it had to be murder. She glanced at Grady Teach, self-proclaimed island historian, who had discovered the body. "What were you doing at the beach so early this morning, Grady?" Before he could answer, the police e

Prayer and Incense

I'm over at Girls, God, and the Good Life today: Camy here! Thanks so much for praying for me a couple weeks ago. I finished my manuscript on time and thought it turned out rather well, if I do say so myself. :) While I was writing, I totally could feel the prayers of people for me. I don’t know how to explain it. I just knew people were praying. I really felt God’s supernatural power working in me to help me get my book done. Read the rest at Come join me!

Thoughts on my new Nook

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.26.2011 My old Nook had a crack in the plastic right over the forward page button on the right side, and I kept forgetting to NOT use the button so the crack was getting worse (as in, the plastic was pulling even further apart and leaving a gaping hole). So, Captain Caffeine bought me the new B&W touchscreen Nook for an early birthday present. The new Nook has so much I really like about it. It’s extremely light, it’s touch screen is extremely responsive (the touch screen on my old Nook was just really not very responsive at all), and the battery life is amazing. What I didn’t realize is that unlike the old Nook, the new Nook does not support .pdb files. This is not as much a problem for the books I’ve bought from Barnes and Noble. All the books are automatically downloaded to my Nook (via wireless) from my library as .epub files and I don’t have to do anything except click the little cover. However, there are two problems. A) Bei

Excerpt - Her Guardian by Sharon Dunn

Her Guardian by Sharon Dunn Julia Randel was thirteen when she was kidnapped by a cult leader. It took her seven years to escape. Two years later her captor's trial is about to begin—and so are threats from his loyal followers. Julia is relieved when her father hires bodyguard Gavin Shane, but she's furious when he rushes her to a safe house. After years under lock and key, she doesn't want to be forced into hiding again. But with cultists seeking to stop Julia's testimony at any cost, it'll take both Julia and her determined protector to set her free for a new life—and new love. Excerpt of chapter one: Professional bodyguard Gavin Shane glanced around the small department store as a sense of foreboding spread through him. He looked at the young woman he had been hired to protect. His client, Julia Randel, picked up a bottle of tester perfume and sprayed it onto her thin wrist. A smile graced her pretty face. She didn't seem alarmed. The

Excerpt - The Innocent Witness by Terri Reed

The Innocent Witness by Terri Reed Faith sustained Vivian Grant through her horrible childhood and loveless marriage, but how much more can she take? Her husband has been killed. Her autistic son is the only witness. And someone is twisting the evidence to place the blame on her. Viv has no one to trust—and danger is closing in. A failed protection detail cost former Secret Service agent Anthony Carlucci his job—and his self-confidence. He's not going to fail anyone under his care again. Anthony will risk anything to keep Viv and her son safe…including his heart. Excerpt of chapter one: One o'clock in the morning. Her son's bed was empty. Anxiousness jump-started Vivian Grant's frozen blood. "Mikey?" she called out as she frantically searched her eight-year-old's closet, under the bed and in the connected bathroom. Empty. A thud had awoken her. This wouldn't be the first time he'd tried to escape the house in the middle of

Weddings and Wasabi available in both print and ebook

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.07.2011 I just found out (like a few days ago) that the ebook version of Weddings and Wasabi , is now available! This is the fourth book in my Sushi series . What's even better is that it's only $2.99! After finally graduating with a culinary degree, Jennifer Lim is pressured by her family to work at her control-freak aunty’s restaurant. But after a family dispute, Jenn is determined to no longer be a doormat and instead starts her own catering company. Her search for a wine merchant brings John into her life—a tall, dark, handsome biker in form-fitting black leather, who’s Hispanic to boot. It would be wonderfully wild to snag a man like that! Shy engineer Edward tentatively tries out his birthday present from his winery-owner uncle—a Harley-Davidson complete with the trimmings. Jennifer seems attracted to the rough, aggressive image, but it isn’t his real self. Is she latching onto him just to spite her horrified family? And if this spark
