Most good daughters would say they owe their fathers everything. Marisa Peruzzo, Mafia princess, would. She owed him for killing her fiancĂ©. She owed him for destroying her mother. She owed him for chaining her to the 'family business'. And she owed him for taking away her lifelong friend. 

Payback's a bitch.

FBI meets Mafia Princess:

Dave sat up straighter when she entered the bar. Sandro had promised the contact would have useful information and be immediately recognizable, but he never specified male or female. Was this his informant? Carlo Peruzzo's daughter. The Mafia princess herself.

Her gaze scanned the room until she saw him. Though her lips were pressed in a straight line, a sparkle flashed in her eyes as if she knew just how she had shocked him.Dave realized his heart rate had kicked up a few notches when their eyes had locked. His jaw would have dropped if he hadn't been the kind of guy trained not to show his emotions.

She walked purposefully toward him, making her way through the crowded tables. Black designer jeans hugged nice curvy hips, and her full breasts were covered with a pink plaid, pearl-button western shirt. Interesting color choice. A leather belt wrapped around her waist, and his focus narrowed. Best he could tell the belt was pink, too. And there were some kind of pink jewels inlaid in the buckle.

He hid a smile. The only thing that would complete the color coordination was if she had on-he looked down, yep, pink cowboy boots. Pretty-in-pink cowgirl-Mafia princess. That certainly wasn't an image he expected to see. With her head high, and her gaze fixed on him she seemed unaware-or unaffected-by the attention she garnered. And she certainly got a fair share of stares. He saw more than one man pause with a drink halfway to his mouth, head swiveling to keep track as she walked past.

Dave had never seen the high-and-mighty Mafia daughter in anything other than expensive business suits, with her hair pulled back and her makeup understated, but tonight she wore this chic knock-off cowgirl look well. With her dark wavy hair swinging free around her shoulders, her smooth olive skin glowing, and lips a luscious color of pink to match as well, she could raise the lust level in a saint.

Dave was no saint.

26 year old Alyssa is fed up with being mistreated by men after a few bad relationships. She needs a break and just found the perfect opportunity. She's decided to go to work as a jillaroo, a female trainee farm worker, on a cattle station in the Australian outback named The Oasis.

There she meets a cowboy named Kent. He's a rodeo champion and handsome to boot. Together they make a bet. As time goes on, they both want out, but neither wants to be first.

Through a series of mishap and adventures from the city to a fast-flowing river in the outback where Kent must save Alyssa from drowning, and she begins to have feelings for him despite her better judgment.

Alyssa is a city girl at heart but as the longer she spends in the outback, the more enticing it becomes. The place intrigues her to the point that the excitement of city nightlife is waning. Then, unexpectedly, she saves The Oasis.

Despite her past experiences, love is growing between Alyssa and Kent. But then Brandt, Alyssa's obsessive ex-boyfriend, tracks her down.

Can Kent save her one last time? What will she do? Find out the answer in this western romance, guaranteed to be a fantastic trip through the Australian outback filled with danger and adventure.

Misty Wright is an emerging author in the contemporary fiction genre. One reviewer claims THE GREAT GIFT is "contemporary romance at its best!" Western fiction is rising in popularity again and so is historical romance. You can find the best of both genres in The Great Gift, perhaps best described as an historical western romance. This book is clean with no explicit scenes, making it an appropriate read for young adults who may be tired of the usual fare in YA romance.

The Demon Isle Witches, A Contemporary Supernatural Series

A vampire mentors three sibling Witches as they struggle to balance life, with duty, as protectors of The Demon Isle. 

Contains mild language and sexual content, similar to TV 14 rating. 

In Volume One: 

Off the coast of New England is the Demon Isle, a place notorious for its weird stories, ghostly encounters and mythical creature sightings. It is New England’s hot spot for tourists; especially tourists interested in the Supernatural and paranormal. 

What these tourists do not know… and what the long time locals do know… is that all the stories and rumors about The Demon Isle are true! 

But no magical hot spot can go unprotected! And neither does The Demon Isle, which has been under the watchful care of the Howard Witches since its inception. But protecting the island from its magical inhabitants and intruders can prove hard on a normal day, and today, is not one of those days! As the sheriff of The Demon Isle needs help solving a murder, one she fears is magical in nature. 

Michael Howard, a death reader, along with Charlie Howard (a little more than human) set off to help the sheriff of The Demon Isle solve this mystery when they meet a damsel in distress that turns out to be more than she appears. 

Meanwhile, their sister, Melinda, gifted with prophetic dreams, races against the clock to save the life of a dear family friend, currently haunted by a malevolent spirit in search of a body to possess. Melinda’s powers alone, however, will not be enough. She will need both of her brothers to save this friend’s life and banish this spirit. 

But when the moment comes to save her, they find the siblings suddenly have an unexpected choice to make: allow the possession, which might harm if not kill their friend, or to banish the spirit before it can pass on a message, which the spirit claims is from a deceased Howard witch.

Running away from home! Who doesn't sometimes dream of it? To go someplace else, to be somebody else!

Here is the story of a loveable mutt named Gumbo, who-longing to be SOMEBODY-abandons his watchdog duties and follows the streetcar tracks downtown to the historic French Quarter of New Orleans. There he discovers a world of new experiences and meets a colorful cast of canine characters, including a dancing poodle and self-appointed tour guide named Pompon, the blue-ribboned Champion Stella de Chateau Blanc, the fearsome Catahoula Hound and, finally, a nameless, homeless dog who visits Gumbo on the moonlit levee like a sad dream.

On his journey, Gumbo learns that the identity he seeks is not to be found in new places, however exciting, or in new acquaintances, however distinguished. For Gumbo, the road to self-esteem leads right back home, where he loves and is loved and where he is, after all, somebody very important.

Passion will bring them together...but pride may rip them apart.
Dashing aristocrat Evan Blake has seduced some of London's most beautiful women, but he has one ironclad rule: never touch a servant, because she must say 'yes' or risk losing her livelihood.

That rule is sorely tested the day Marian Willows comes to work at Blakewood Manor.
Mischievous, smart, and independent, Marian challenges everything Evan thought he knew about women, life, and love.

But reality cannot be ignored. Master and servant, aristocrat and commoner...even as passion unites them, society's rules and the couple's own prideful natures tear them apart.

When Marian's life is in danger, will Evan risk everything he has - his money, his title, his life - to save the woman he loves?

Set in England and Paris during the years of the French Revolution, PASSION AND PRIDE is about illicit desire, forbidden romance, and a love that conquers all.

Why Quantum Physicists Don't Get Fat

Finally say goodbye to unwanted weight!

1. Have you tried to lose weight only to wind up gaining it all back (and more)?
2. Have you repeatedly dieted and been unsuccessful  at losing your unwanted weight?
3. Are you tired of trying to hide your weight gains from family and friends because weight loss plans just don't seem to work for you?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, you're no different than millions of Americans; you've been frustrated by your seeming inability to lose your unwanted weight. It might surprise you, though, to learn that the specific diets you've tried aren't the problem. Would it surprise you further to learn that YOU definitely aren't the problem either?

The problem is not the weight loss plans and neither is it you. The problem is the science! The diets you've tried have failed you because they are based on old, outdated science. Science that has, in fact, been replaced, right under your nose, by an amazingly accurate and incredibly reliable one called quantum physics.

Why Quantum Physicists Don't Get Fat will teach you, in simple, everyday language, to unlock the awesome power of quantum physics to inject any weight loss plan with nitroboosting rocket fuel. You'll quickly find that the great-feeling, slender body you've dreamed of is just around the corner!

Libby the Loser. That's what everyone used to call me behind my back. I wasn't popular, I wasn't strong, I wasn't brave.

All that changed after a chance encounter in a Canberra nightclub. Afterward, I began to dream; dream I was something else. A powerful creature of muscles and claws, something powerful and confident and everything I wasn't.

I dreamed I was in love with a man I'd barely met.

The dream world is a beautiful, wondrous place, but there's a shadow in my dreams. An eclipse, broken with a gunshot. Then I wake up.

Now my dreams are coming true. My body is changing for real. I'm shedding Libby the Loser like an old skin. I'm growing into something else.

But there are others. Others like me, and they don't get along. People are disappearing. People are dying.

The shadow is falling over the real world, too, and everything has changed.

Shadow People: how meth-driven crime is eating at the heart of rural America
Shadow People - Scott Thomas Anderson
Genre - True Crime
Rating - PG13
4.3 (22 reviews)
Free until 5 February 2013
Literary Nonfiction. Sleepless and paranoid methamphetamine addicts often see "shadow people" in the darkest hours of the night. Yet it is the addicts themselves that cast a shadow over the most peaceful corners of America, driven in large numbers to commit fraud, identity theft, burglary, domestic violence, elder abuse, child abuse, assault and murder.

In 2010, award-winning journalist Scott Thomas Anderson began to explore the link between crime and methamphetamine, spending sixteen months as an embedded reporter with rural county law enforcement agencies and traveling to dozens of small towns battling the epidemic across the United States. 

The result is SHADOW PEOPLE, an unflinching look at the havoc and heartache meth spawns in the open countryside—a window to how the drug is threatening America's wide open country spaces, fueling crimes against citizens, breaking families apart, devastating innocent children and tearing away at the psyche of each community through which it spreads.

"My heart sank. I dumped my father’s ashes in the heart of communist Vietnam – over a thousand miles from the death of his comrades – over a thousand miles from the smile of that girl. How could I have been so stupid?"

Only the bumbling, overweight, thirtyish, stay-at-home Martin Kinney could have mistakenly flubbed his dying father’s request with such gusto. This thousand mile mistake awakens the ghosts of long-held family secrets and puts Martin on a fateful course with an unlikely romantic interest – a young, beautiful, yet troubled Vietnamese woman named My Phuong.

With its cross-cultural setting and unlikely romance, the 61,000 word novel Beauty Rising creates a powerful, unique voice in today’s literature. In a swift-moving, dialogue-driven prose which is funny, honest, tragic and unpredictable, Beauty Rising explores the depths of culture, family, and love as the Vietnam War, a generation removed, continues to hang on the periphery of society, cursing families and causing destruction.
