Tahoe Chase by Todd Borg

Simone Bonnaire, a young French woman who lives in Tahoe, has a sadistic boyfriend who abuses her. Simone's only friend is Cynthia Rorvik, an older woman who provides comfort.

When Cynthia falls from her deck and ends up in a coma, her 92-year-old, former Olympic ski racer husband Joe Rorvik calls Tahoe Detective Owen McKenna and asks him to investigate.

McKenna discovers a string of deaths that look like accidents. But he can find no other connection between them until he learns that all of the victims opposed a new, proposed ski resort development in Tahoe.

As McKenna gets closer to a devious killer, he realizes that Simone is to be the next victim. But McKenna can't save her because she has left on a solo ski trek into the Desolation Wilderness, and she is unreachable except by the killer who has been following her and has already begun his final chase...

B Cubed: Born (B Cubed - Book #1) by Jenna McCormick

Born: Natural born humans are precious few and dwell in darkness.



Bred: Genetically engineered slaves who are the protectors of the Born.



Borg: The cybernetically enhanced enclave that split from the Born humans.

B Cubed: These three factions are all that remains of the human race after the world stopped turning. Scavenging in the darkness for what little is left, the war between them rages on though few know why. It begins with a child's prophesy and can only end when they unite.

Or die.



From the moment he spies her silhouette cast by the bonfire, Cormack understands what it is to yearn for something he will never possess. Breds are made to provide for the natural born humans, dig their homes deep beneath the surface of the earth and to protect them from the ever-present cyborg threat. A Bred who reaches beyond his station will be recycled immediately, yet Cormack cannot get her visage out of his mind. Until he unearths a box, buried long before the earth stopped spinning.


Task Mistress Allora has no wish to brutalize the Bred worker she finds hoarding treasure, but as a servant of the colony that raised her from infancy, she is duty bound to report anything unusual to the Overlord, even if it costs the blue-eyed man his life. Yet something about the way Cormack watches her forces Allora to reevaluate her understanding of right and wrong. For this genetically engineered soldier is her only protection against the cyborgs who seek what they have discovered, a journal written by the prophetess Cassandra and a way to end the warring between the factions forever.

The Roswell Conspiracy (Tyler Locke - book #3) by Boyd Morrison


After the 1908 Tunguska blast levels a Siberian forest the size of London, a Russian scientist makes an amazing discovery amongst the debris.


In 1947, ten-year-old Fay Allen of Roswell, New Mexico, witnesses the fiery crash of an extraordinary craft unlike anything she's ever seen.

More than sixty years later, former Army combat engineer Tyler Locke rescues Fay from gunmen who are after a piece of wreckage she claims is from the Roswell incident. Incredulous of her tale, Tyler believes the attack on Fay is nothing more than a burglary gone wrong. But when he finds himself locked in the back of a truck carrying a hundred tons of explosives and heading for a top secret American base, Tyler knows that he has stumbled onto the opening gambit of something more sinister than he ever imagined.

Because disgraced Russian spy Vladimir Colchev is after an Air Force prototype code-named Killswitch, an electromagnetic pulse weapon of unprecedented power. Although Tyler is able to avert catastrophe at the US facility, Colchev gets away with the bomb and plans to turn it on America itself. To complete his mission, he needs only one other key component, a mysterious object recovered from the Roswell crash.

In a desperate race against time, Tyler must unmask a conspiracy a century in the making to rescue the United States from electronic Armageddon.

First Contact (The Last War Trilogy - Book #1) by Michael R. Hicks


The Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack. 


For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against countless civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past.

Angel Fire (Fallen Angels - Book #1) by Valmore Daniels


My name is Darcy Anderson, and I am cursed with a dark power.  Whenever my life is in danger, something inside me summons 
elemental fire to protect me. I cannot control this.

One night, I was attacked in my home. The fire ... it raged out of control. 
I survived the inferno, but my house burned to the ground - with my parents inside. I was at a loss to explain to the courts what happened, 
and they sent me to prison for ten years for manslaughter.

Now I'm out on parole, and all I want is to return to my home town and rebuild my life; but the man who attacked me is back to finish the job he started.

I can sense the power in me growing. If I can't control it, it will control me 
and destroy everything - and everyone - I love.

Fantasy Inc. #3 - Wicth Hunt by Lee Moore

For Mature Audiences 18+ 


Fantasy Incorporated is a business that operates out of an old twenty story hotel building. From the outside, you would never know the type of business it is. Many folks know of it by reputation and once the good folks from the city tried to get it shut down only to get rebuked at every turn. It seems that most people have fantasies, and between consenting adults, almost every fantasy can be fulfilled here. 

A onetime membership purchase of $10,000 and a monthly fee of $500 is only the first step. Fantasy Inc. has their own doctors who will thoroughly examine every member monthly and conduct drug and STD testing to ensure the health and safety of every member. After all, most fantasies are sexual in nature, although many of them are also focused on power and dominance. 

Halloween is almost upon us, and it's time for another party at Fantasy Inc. Come inside... 

“Now, here’s how we’re going to do this. You will confirm your consent by placing your thumb on this scanner before entering the ball room. If your medical records aren’t up to date, you won’t be allowed to enter. Sorry folks, that rule is absolute. Once there, you can mingle, drink, party and of course, all the connecting rooms around the ballroom are unlocked for member usage tonight,” he said with a grin with all the applause that greeted this announcement. 

“For those of you who are new to this, I would like to point out the table over here where we have several games arranged. All participants in the games are of course volunteers and are not paid employees,” and you could hear some good natured boo’s from the crowd but he continued, “Hey, my legal department makes me say that!” He said with a chuckle, and got a smattering of applause. 

“What kind of games?” a young lady in a red dress shouted to Santo. 

Tonight there is going to be a Witch Hunt.
