Jack King is a handsome, crafty vampire who tries to maintain his identity in a time when the daily erosion of privacy is the norm. He has managed to survive a changing world for decades and now must face an age of rapid globalization, fleeting romance, and social networks.

And just when his personal life takes an unexpected--and pleasant--turn, King learns his bloodline is worth a king's ransom. In a world where free markets and exploitation reign, one vampire is about to discover how mankind perceives his kind: as a monster, as a commodity, or as a being deserving of tolerance?

Episode One: 

Jack King has lived over a hundred years on earth as a vampire and is finally comfortable enough to reveal his life and musings to the world through a confidant. In between revealing his thoughts, Jack goes on a date with a girl who he really is trying to impress. The date takes an unexpected turn, and Jack struggles to keep his identity secret while trying to build enough trust with the new girl. Jack gives his thoughts on love, technology, as well as vampires and photography. 

Episode Two:

Jack and his trusted associate Ted, immediately get sent to Hong Kong on short notice to handle a client that has expressed deep dissatisfaction with the genetic engineering software they were given by Jack & Ted's company. While in Hong Kong, Jack finds keeping his identity a secret terribly difficult and must take on extreme measures just to survive. As we come to find out more in part two, we begin to see that Jack's trip is anything but just business. 

Episode Three:

Jack longs for a chance at a deeper relationship with Holly, a surprising set of circumstances might present him with such an opporunity, as Holly receives a chance at entering Jack's inner world. Meanwhile, Ted, his best friend and confidant, requests something from Jack that puts their strong and long lived friendship on the precipice. As Jack maneuvers through his interpersonal relationships, he faces a horror so frightening, it jolts the very foundation at the core of humanity. 

Episode Four

Betrayed, Jack finds himself a prisoner of psychopathic corporate scientists who want to find out what makes him tick. They will stop at nothing to violate his very flesh in order to gain the secrets of his biology, as well as his corporate knowledge of a drug that could change medical history. Separated from his girlfriend, Holly, and his best friend, Ted, the only ones who can save Jack from a terrible fate are an offbeat group of Chinese vampires with a rich culture and history. Thrust into their unfamiliar culture and running from exploitative humans, Jack walks a fine line between his assimilation and loyalty to his human friends and his acceptance and growing knowledge of who he is, what he is, and his growing role in the future of his entire vampire species.

“Maybe that’s why Holly was out here,” Chad surmised. “What if Michaels snuck into her room last night and dumped the cat there? Maybe she came to bury it again.”

“Then where is it now?” Ethan asked.

“Michaels took it again,” Quincy answered. “And that’s the only way it got out of its grave. Because dead things don’t come back to life. Not Billy Finch, not the cat and not Sols.” He aimed the light at Ethan. “And I know that’s what you’re thinking so don’t deny it.”

Ethan shook his head.“I wasn’t going to.”

“You believed us about Billy the other night,” Eejayce reminded Quincy.

“It was easy then,” Quincy argued. “We’d just found a dead family. But now it sounds crazy. I mean, how many dead people do we think are walking around?”

How many indeed? Find out in this modern-gothic zombie tale. Haunted by the murder of his little brother, sixteen-year-old Ethan Harris finds a kindred spirit when Shay Cassidy moves to the stormy coastal town of Emerald Bay. Like Ethan, the beautiful and willowy Shay is the product of a guilt-ridden, broken past, and she radiates a sorrow and fear that draw Ethan to her. But local bully Viktor Sols harbors his own dark and twisted desire for Shay and will stop at nothing to get her. After Sols is killed, a series of grisly murders begins, and Ethan, Shay and their friends find themselves in a pitched battle against a supernatural foe. Can they survive or will the shocking secret of the Sols family kill them all?

Huntsville, Alabama lies at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. It is a city of historical contrasts, at once Antebellum South as well as a modern concourse of technical prowess, a research and development center for the U.S. Army and NASA.

And here is where the McNallys call home.

They are successful professionals with civilian careers on Redstone Arsenal, but their success belies a foundering marriage. Jared, an engineer, is emotionally distant. His wife, Melissa, an intellectual property lawyer, pursues an affair to fill the void left by her husband.

Tipping the scales of their flimsy bond is a journal of a young man, Jacob Thompson. In the 1830s his father owned the plantation Fiery Hill, the original boundary of which includes fifty acres now marking the McNally’s home. Within the diary, Jacob professes a love for a slave girl named Nika, an African brought forcibly to America, not only with chains, but with a secret and dangerous legacy. That legacy is resurrected, and for unknown reasons targets the McNallys.

As a result, Jacob and Nika’s past intersect with Jared and Melissa’s present as all paths lead through an enigmatic African legend borne in the tribal myths of the Mande.

In a quiet, grand estate in the middle of the woods, Larissa Wagner reads a book. She spends her days wistful and restless, dreaming of distant lands and romantic adventures, hoping one day to become a proper, courtly lady. However, with the death of her father leaving the family in disarray, she resigns herself to the prospect of a modest, normal life. 

But in a flash of violence and horror, her starry-eyed dreams are dashed, and her sheltered life of privilege and indulgence comes to an abrupt end.

Haunted by disturbing visions from the past, she finds herself hunted by a secret order, pursued by ruthless agents that will stop at nothing. Alone and on her own for the first time in her life, she descends deep into the darkness of a conspiratorial world. A work of alternative fantasy, Sifter evokes an original world that eschews genre conventions.

The Ultimate Flat Belly Solution

The Ultimate Flat Belly Solution draws upon recent health studies to show that most people are unable to lose weight and enjoy a flat belly due to one hidden but easily fixed problem: chronic glucose poisoning. 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American ingests 156 pounds of added sugar every year -- largely hidden in processed foods. American food companies inject High Fructose Corn Syrup into virtually everything. Even apples are sometimes deemed insufficiently sweet and need fixing.

As a result, the ultimate flat belly solution lies in controlling blood sugar levels by means of regular glucose monitoring... the use of a newly discovered, all-natural nutrient that is clinically proven to reduce blood sugar 30% and help the average person lose 17 pounds with no diet or exercise... and an easy-to-follow "pre-diabetic" meal plan that cuts out extra sweets from your diet.

The results are rapid weight loss where it's needed most: the hidden intra-abdominal fat that lies behind stomach muscles and that can lead to many chronic, even life-threatening health problems.
The Ultimate Flat Belly Solution shows you that the best thing you can do for your health is to achieve the flat-as-a-board belly that makes you look fantastic.

And here's the really great part of all this: The Glycemic Index was on the right track. The key really does lie in the Glycemic load and in limiting blood sugar. But the Glycemic Index wasn't precise enough. It didn't monitor the individual's own blood sugar. What's more, it didn't provide the tools that were scientifically proven to lower blood sugar.

But now we have those tools. New research, published in 2012, shows that nutrients such as Green Coffee Extract can have a dramatic impact on serum glucose levels. What's more, a recent study demonstrated that subjects who took 1200 mg of Green Coffee Extract a day lost an average of 17 pounds without dieting and without exercise.

Imagine how much weight you could lose if you also limited your calories and did a little exercise?
Glucose monitoring and the discovery of new blood sugar antidotes like Green Coffee Extract represent a revolutionary new advance in weight loss -- and will help millions of people achieve the flat belly we all want!

Cross Current (Seychelle Sullivan #2)

Salvage boat captain and sometime sleuth Seychelle Sullivan returns in Kling's follow-up to her well-received debut, Surface Tension, this time to aid a frightened Haitian waif named Solange. Seychelle—who's plying the South Florida waters on her tugboat, the Gorda, with her mechanic cum lover, B.J.—discovers the girl on a swamped boat and makes saving her, both from danger and from immigration officials, a personal crusade. The recent murder of some Haitian refugees and a creepy visitor to Solange's hospital room convince Seychelle that the frightened girl is in peril. 

More challenges come from tough guys with various agendas. Detective Victor Collazo, with whom Seychelle has a combative history, seems determined to thwart her effort and return the child. Border Patrol Agent Russ Elliott presses a similar agenda, though Seychelle's lawyer and best friend Jeannie does her best to parry his thrusts. Retired DEA agent Joe D'Angelo conveniently arrives to perk up Seychelle's libido (B.J. notwithstanding) and address some unanswered questions about her dead father, with whom he worked, and a surprise visit by Seychelle's black-sheep brother, Pit, threatens even more disruption. 

Savvy readers will be two steps ahead of the plot, which features several genre set pieces, but Kling writes with crisp assurance, especially about life in coastal South Florida, and her supporting cast, if crowded, is colorful.

Maggie Flynn’s simple country wedding in West Virginia’s enchanting Canaan Valley is everything her aunts hoped for, and Andrea Flynn and Kathleen Williamson are looking forward to a joyful weekend celebration. Murder is the last thing on anyone’s mind, but when one guest has multiple enemies present, it becomes a reality. Poison in a late-night cup of tea proves fatal, and it’s obvious that plenty of family members and their friends have reason to want the victim dead.

When a second murder occurs, members of the wedding party become even more certain that a killer is stalking the halls of the Alpenhof Hotel where they’re staying. Andrea and Kathleen join forces with Sheriff Ward Sterling to figure out who’s killing the guests in this quiet mountain resort. And there are clues—or are they just red herrings? A book of poetry, a flower garden, and artificial fingernails are among the discoveries the sisters discuss with the sheriff.

They’re hoping the investigation won’t put their lives in danger, but security at the hotel is lax and door locks are flimsy. If the sisters can dig up enough clues, maybe they can solve the puzzle before the killer takes aim at them. However, at bedtime they’re bracing their door with the back of a chair, just in case.
