Anomaly Flats
by Clayton Smith
Category: Science Fiction > Time Travel

Somewhere just off the interstate, in the heart of the American Midwest, there’s a quaint, quirky town where the stars in the sky circle a hypnotic void….where magnetic fields play havoc with time and perception…where metallic rain and plasma rivers and tentacles in the plumbing are simply part of the unsettling charm. 

Mallory Jenkins is about to experience the unique properties of this place for herself – she’ll have no choice, considering the collapsed bridge that rerouted her urgent and mysterious trip to Saskatchewan, forcing her straight into the heart of town, where her Impala has an inexplicable breakdown. She intends to stay overnight - just until the auto repair shop can make the fix in the morning and send her on her way. 

But Mallory will soon encounter Dr. Lewis Burnish, a scientist who’s studied the town for a dozen years and knows more about its strangeness than even the locals do. And when she accidentally-on-purpose creates his evil clone, she’ll set off a series of events that could unleash the ultimate evil upon the town and wreak havoc on the world at large.
Life in a small town is like that sometimes.

Welcome to Anomaly Flats. Have some waffles, meet the folks, and enjoy the scenery…and if you happen to be in Walmart, whatever you do, don’t go down aisle 8. 


Don’t EVER go down aisle 8. 

Hadassah: One Night with the King
by Tommy Tenney
Category: Historical


Bestselling author Tommy Tenney expands the extraordinary story of Esther like no novelist has done before. 

Both a thriller and a Jewish woman's memoir, Hadassah takes readers to ancient Persia (now known as Iraq), into the inner sanctum of the palace and back out into the war zones of battle and political intrigue. This gripping drama of a simple peasant girl chosen over many more qualified candidates to become Esther, Queen of Persia, captures the imagination and fires the emotions of men and women alike.





Cursed
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Category: Paranormal


Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows. 



Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't? 

But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.

When the mob kills her cop boyfriend and ruins her chances for a new life, Marisa Peruzzo vows to bring them down—at the risk of destroying her family and the only life she’s known. She finds an ally in FBI agent Dave Armstrong, and though she falls in love with him, nothing will dissuade her from ensuring the mob's downfall, even if she has to go outside the law.

For FBI Agent Dave Armstrong justice means choosing between right and wrong, black and white, and nothing in between. There is no place in his city for criminals, and he is determined to put mob boss Carlo Peruzzo out of business. But Carlo is powerful, dangerous, and cunning, and so far has eluded Dave’s efforts to arrest him. Until Carlo’s daughter surprises Dave with an offer of help.

Marisa is a woman who operates outside the neat little box Dave has always lived in, and while he understands her need for justice, he doesn’t approve of her methods. Yet in the course of his quest, Dave falls in love with her, and his feelings make him question whether the world might actually be shades of gray.

Unfortunately, one of Marisa’s closest friends, a world renowned Italian soccer player, is on the wrong side of her father. The clock is ticking while she and Dave race to prevent yet another death.
