The Big Bad Wolf by Jus Accardo

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: March 5th, 2018

37823672

Synopsis:

Kensey Deaton comes from an elite werewolf lineage, but just because her family is royalty, doesn’t mean she’ll fall in line like some perfect little princess. She has plans and they don’t include an arranged marriage!

Slade McAlister has his own family drama. His Alpha father happens to be the most reviled wolf on the eastern seaboard, and it’s a stigma he can’t escape. So when his neighbor Kensey–the girl of his dreams and his nightmares–proposes a solution to solve *both* of their problems, he sees an opportunity he can’t ignore.

Kensey and Slade aren’t only from opposite sides of the tracks, they’re from opposite sides of the war. But if they can sell their ‘relationship’, they might just make it out of this with their freedom.
You know, as long as all that fake PDA doesn’t turn into more…

Excerpt

He took a sip of water and nodded. He eyed the new plate as the girl set it down in front of him. “Raw fish? You’re buying me a burger as soon as we’re done here.”
“It’s Japanese,” I whispered. “Odori don. When you pour—”

The maid leaned across him and poured soy sauce over his plate. The squid in the center twitched once, then started to squirm with spastic enthusiasm.

“What the—” Slade flinched and jumped back, falling out of his chair and taking the maid—and the soy sauce—with him. She let out a squeak as the gravy bowl flew from her hands and hit the wall behind us. The ceramic shattered, splintering into a thousand tiny pieces as salty brown liquid splattered in all directions.

I managed to extract myself from my chair as Slade was helping the maid to her feet. Once she was up, she scurried into the kitchen, mumbling something about towels, and he turned back to the table. “My apologies,” he said with a bow toward our out of town guests. “I wasn’t expecting my dinner to dance.”

My father stood, the look on his face anything but forgiving, but I didn’t stick around. I grabbed Slade by the wrist and led him up the stairs to my bathroom to clean up.

“Haven’t been in here in years,” he said as we passed through my room. “Your décor hasn’t gotten any better.”

I rolled my eyes and shoved him through the bathroom door. Once inside, I clasped his shoulder and pushed him on to the edge of the tub. “Neither have your manners.”

“How was I supposed to know the damn thing was still alive?”

“It wasn’t.” I ran a towel under the water, then rang it out. “It was dead.”

“Beg to differ. It moved. It fucking started moshing on my plate.”

I knelt in front of him then paused. This wasn’t going to work while he was still wearing the shirt. “It was the salt in the soy sauce. The muscles in the squid were reacting to it. Take your shirt off.”

He waggled his brows. “Finally.”

I sighed and grabbed the back of his collar then gave a hard yank. The material caught on his chin for a second before coming over his head. “Says the guy who insisted I was a horrible kisser.”

He snorted. “That was years ago.Like I said, you’ve gotten a little bit better.”

He leaned back and I didn’t miss the way he flexed, the hard planes of his chest moving in an almost mesmerizing way. I also didn’t—couldn’t—miss the scattered assortment of marks and scars.

“They’re not pretty, are they?” His voice was low calm, but the look in his eyes was anything but.

“Gavin?” The scars were a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, and left very little skin unmarred.

“For the most part.” He shifted, almost like he was uncomfortable with my scrutiny.

I cleared my throat and turned away. “Ya know, scars are a sign of honor in the wolf community.”

“Yeah?” There was a twinge of amusement in his voice and I was glad. “Then pick one. I’ll let you honor it with a kiss.”

Retrograde by Peter Crawdon

33887274

Synopsis:

“Venturing into spacer and traveling to Mars sounds like an exotic adventure, but the reality of living in lava caves hundreds of feet below the surface of a rocky, frozen, lifeless planet takes its toll on the Endeavor crew. Public interest has waned since the exhilaration of reaching the surface of Mars, and the exploration has moved into its scientific phase. The only viable option for long-term habitation lies beneath the surface of the planet, where humans can be shielded from harsh comic radiation.

Connor, Harrison, and Liz are senior members of the U.S. module. When war breaks out on Earth and rumors begin spreading on Mars, they find their core principles rocked by the devastation and loss of friends and family. Whom can you trust on an international mission when the world is at war? As the colonists struggles to figure out what really happened on Earth, grief and anger become pitted against camaraderie and the spirit of exploration.” Continue reading

Love or freedom…the choice is hers.

But the captivating twins aren’t what they seem…

As frightening truths are unveiled and a one-of-a-kind offer is made, Lena will have to decide whether love is worth the loss of her freedom, or if freedom is worth the ultimate cost…her life.”

Focusing Emptiness: A Mytho-Poetic Journey to the Lost Child by Michael P. Staples

31309933

Synopsis:

“Michael Staples was barely old enough to drive a car as he enthusiastically boarded the bus that would be his first step to one of the most dangerous places in the world. The family drama he had defended himself against all his young life had crafted a would of fantasy, distorting his ability to see the danger in that step. Neither his enthusiasm nor his fantasy world would last much longer–both were on a collision course with reality–the reality of defusing bombs as a Marine in wartime Vietnam.

Focusing Emptiness is a story of personal evolution and transformation–weaving the impact of traumatic childhood and life experience with the mytho-poetic language of the unconscious. It speaks to everyone who has experienced trauma in their lives and wondered if the resulting defense mechanisms have colored their life choices.

This books tells the archetypal story of seeking and finding the lost child. It is a personal and honest exploration into the effects of seemingly “small” traumas, the journey of a young man from the small orange groves of southern California to the reality of war, martial arts in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and the path to reclaiming and healing the inner landscape.”
