Enter the world of Dragonlands with the first three novels from this bestselling epic fantasy series.

Includes:

Hidden:
The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.

Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.

Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.

What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

Hunted:
The fog that trapped the people of Hutton's Bridge for eighty years has disappeared, but now so have the villagers.

Fearing the worst, Tressa and Bastian must navigate a new and dangerous world in search of their people. Among their allies are a healer, a warrior, and even a dragon--but their enemies are far greater.

Hutton's Bridge has long protected a powerful secret, one the dragonlords will kill to control. As the realms rise, Tressa and Bastian risk everything to save their people, until one must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Retribution:
Tensions are mounting in the Dragonlands. The dragon hordes are mustering, each with its own agenda. But Tressa must conquer her personal demons before answering the call to war.

Gravely ill, her body undergoing mysterious and frightening changes, she travels to a distant land for the answers crucial to her survival. What she discovers rocks her to the core.

As the battle begins, a long-slumbering magic--dark, powerful, and brutal--awakens. And Tressa learns the ones you love most can become your greatest enemies of all.

Every Fear (Kindle Edition)

By (author): Rick Mofina

On an ordinary morning, Maria Colson takes her baby son Dylan to the corner store. She turns her back for only a few seconds. When she looks again, she sees his empty stroller, as Dylan is being abducted into a waiting van. Maria climbs into the van, but is violently thrown to the road where she is left for dead as the vehicle vanishes without a trace.

As Maria fights for her life and her anguished young husband keeps a beside vigil, the FBI and police across metro Sea-Tac and Washington State search for Dylan.
Seattle Mirror reporter Jason Wade is under pressure to bring in a big story, and the Colson kidnapping could be it. It’s certainly a bizarre case with pieces that just don’t add up: The Colsons are a hard-working couple. Former high school sweethearts. No problems. No enemies.

Then Jason and his dad, a private detective haunted by his former life as a cop, discover a grisly murder of a young woman that is somehow connected to the Colsons.

Now, in a dark Seattle underground of desperate dreamers and ex-convicts, Jason embarks on an investigation that parallels one led by Homicide Detective Grace Garner.

They're both hunting for the one piece of the puzzle that connects the baby’s disappearance with a spine-tingling case of revenge. And time is running out, because whoever took little Dylan Colson is more dangerous than anyone could ever imagine.

With Every Fear, Rick Mofina takes suspense to a whole new level in a heart-pounding story that moves like a true crime case torn from today's headlines.

Rick Mofina is a former journalist who has interviewed murderers on death row, flown over L.A. with the LAPD and patrolled with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police near the Arctic. He's also reported from the Caribbean, Africa and Kuwait's border with Iraq. His books have been published in nearly 30 countries, including an illegal translation produced in Iran.

His work has been praised by James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Tess Gerritsen, Jeffery Deaver, Sandra Brown, James Rollins, Brad Thor, Nick Stone, David Morrell, Allison Brennan, Heather Graham, Linwood Barclay, Peter Robinson, Håkan Nesser and Kay Hooper.

The Crime Writers of Canada, The International Thriller Writers and The Private Eye Writers of America have listed his titles among the best in crime fiction. As a two-time winner of Canada's Arthur Ellis Award, a three-time Thriller Award finalist and a two-time Shamus Award finalist, the Library Journal calls him, “One of the best thriller writers in the business."

You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there’s a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth’s population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there’s a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted… Such as curing your mother’s cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she’s a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she’s come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition—including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she’s been crushing on, and who doesn’t seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.

You Qualify or you die.

Learn How To Avoid Mistakes When You Starts With Ketogenic Diet To Help You Lose Weight!



This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to avoid some common mistakes while on the ketogenic diet.
If you have been trying to lose weight for some time, you have definitely come across the ketogenic diet. This may have led you to get started on the diet but somehow you were unable to achieve the success you had hoped for. You then make conclude that the Ketogenic diet does not work. However, are you sure that the ketogenic diet does not work or you made some mistakes that affected your success while on the diet? To ensure that you are successful with the ketogenic diet and achieve the goals you have set out to achieve, we will look at common mistakes that many dieters make and how to avoid these mistakes in order to get the success that you desire.

Every diet or eating lifestyle has its pro and cons alongside challenges that make first timers find it harder to adopt. Before we get to see what mistakes or pitfalls come with Ketogenic diet, let’s first understand what the diet entails. In a nutshell, the ketogenic diet emphasizes on increasing your intake of fat and protein while reducing your intake of carbohydrates. The ketogenic diet is meant to restrict carbohydrate intake in order to control your blood sugar levels. Since our body’s main source of energy is glucose, if your body is low in glucose, the body is forced to find other sources of energy to sustain the body’s metabolism processes. Once under the “starvation” mode, your body is said to undergo ketosis. Simply put ketosis is a process in which the liver begins to synthesize ketone bodies and fatty acids as alternative sources of fuel. The stored fats are thereby broken down in the liver into fatty acids and other products that we now call ketone bodies. The ketone bodies are then oxidized as the main energy source to provide fuel for your body in place of carbohydrates.

The ketogenic diet was initially designed to help people suffering from epilepsy but with the availability of epileptic drugs, the diet is not as effective for those suffering from epilepsy. However, there has been a lot of success with the diet being effective in helping people lose weight. For you to lose weight with the Keto diet plan, you need to restrict your carb intake to less than 50g in a day. You should then meet your daily calorie requirement from food sources that offer high amounts of fats and lean protein to sustain metabolic processes. With that understanding of the ketogenic diet, let us now look at how you can lose weight with the ketogenic diet.

ONE JUMP PUTS IT ALL ON THE LINE…
Former SEAL Rio Donovan is one hundred percent pure, sensual trouble. Home from the front lines, he has a new mission: fighting fire as a smoke jumper.

Voted #1 Best Indie Book of 2015 by ReadFREE.ly!

Amazon #1 Bestselling Author - over 1 million books in circulation.


The past and the present collide with stunning results in the latest Reed Ferguson mystery.

Potential client Brad Webb asks Denver private investigator Reed Ferguson to look into the decades-old murder of Brad’s grandfather, Dewey Webb. Dewey was a Denver-based private detective who died mysteriously in 1955, and although Reed is intrigued, he doesn't see much promise in solving the case. After all, the police didn't find Dewey's killer at the time, and seventy years have passed, leaving a cold trail. However, Reed accepts the case, and as he is drawn back into both the underworld and the elite society of 1950s Denver, he realizes that Dewey had discovered secrets that someone still wants to keep hidden today, even if it means resorting to murder. Can Reed piece together old and new clues to find the killer, or will the past come back to harm him?

Great for fans who love a fast-paced, humorous read, without a lot of swearing or sex.

More Great Reviews of this private investigator series:

Kirkus Reviews:
The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect detective Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.

5 star review:
Oh how I’ve missed the Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe characters that saw me with a flashlight in the dead of night flipping pages to see what happened next. Thank you Ms. Pawlish for bringing back to life this long-lost art of the detective battling against all odds and getting to the bottom of things.

Seeing the future comes at a price. What price would you be willing to pay to save thousands of lives?

Mark Taylor knows his actions scream guilty—but he was only trying to stop the horrible terrorist attack.

His frantic warnings about September 11th are ignored but put him in the government cross-hairs where he learns what being labeled an 'enemy combatant'really means...

In exchange for a vial of dragon’s blood to save her brother’s life, Melanie Hall offers herself up as a sacrifice to one of the British dragon-shifter clans.

An ending that will leave you speechless...



What if you were born as a fully formed adult? Completely aware of your surroundings, fully able to speak, walk, think, and recognize, by name, all of the items you could see? The only thing missing, the only nagging void in your memory: your identity.

How do you think you would react to such a situation? Would it even be possibly to take it calmly? Or would there be a sense of panic? A rush of nauseating adrenaline so thick, so heavy, that it would leave you literally gasping for air in a room full of it?

Imagine just how frightening that could be.

Now, let's throw a single wrinkle into the mix. Suppose that you awakened into this new existence with one tiny clue as to who you were. A single word. A name. Which you somehow believed to be your own, despite the fact that you had no memory of any previous existence in which that name applied to you. Would this concept of a name, supposedly your own, in any way alleviate the stress of finding yourself suddenly coming into existence?

I'd like to say it did for me, but that simply wouldn't be the full truth. You will find that out soon enough though. But my only fear is what you might think once you learn the truth.

I am Sal.

This is my story.

Anti-Romance (Kindle Edition)

By (author): Cassia Leo

Laney Hill is screwed. On the bed. On the treadmill. On the hood of a BMW. And on her boss’s desk. Then she’s screwed again when she steps into the free clinic and finds out she has gonorrhea. That dirty prick gave her gonorrhea! She’s totally going to break up with him...until he breaks up with her...because he’s married!
A spur of the moment date with her hot musician neighbor, Kade Masters, goes from smoking hot to red-hot disaster in two seconds flat. Then, a night out drinking with friends leads to a fateful--yet awkwardly-sloppy--kiss between her and her best friend George Bratton.
Laney is ready to go into hibernation-mode, when George receives an invitation to his ex-girlfriend's destination wedding in London. Self-destructive George and gonorrhea survivor Laney make a deal to go as each other’s dates. It will make great material for Laney’s “Anti-Romance” blog and maybe it will help George finally get over his ex. 
Pushing aside thoughts of Kade, and his "big engine that could", Laney jumps at the chance to escape to the magical land of the royal family. But her magical vacation soon turns into a royal, steaming pile of lies.

Artemus Black. Perennially down-on-his-luck Hollywood PI whose Bogie fixation is as dated as his wardrobe. With an assistant who mocks him relentlessly, an obese cat that loathes him, a romantic life that's deader than Elvis, money problems, booze, nicotine, and anger management issues, how much worse can it get? When he takes a case that's supposed to be easy money working for a celebrity whose colleagues and surrounding paparazzi are dropping faster than interest in the star's big comeback, the cakewalk turns ugly and Black finds himself in a web of deceit, betrayal, and murder - and bad hair days.

The first in a series from bestselling author Russell Blake, Black is a detective mystery with a difference that fans of the genre are sure to enjoy.

+ + +

Q&A with Russell Blake

Q: Why delve into detective mystery? You're an action/adventure thriller author.

RB: I've always loved books by authors like Michael Connelly, Elmore Leonard and Raymond Chandler. The resolute PI up against crime, danger, and beautiful dames. I got this idea about six months ago for a Hollywood PI who's down on his luck, barely hanging on, dealing with personal issues, tormented by everyone around him...but all of it colored with a really dark sense of humor. I wanted a kind of black cynicism that scathingly comments on the show biz lifestyle, a la Get Shorty, but fresh - something that hadn't been done before. So I gave it whirl, and enjoyed the characters and the plotting so much that I've written the second in the series already, and am finishing the third.

Q: Tell us about Black. What makes him tick?

RB: He's kind of a loser. He's got anger management issues he's in therapy for, but it's questionable how well that's going. His therapist is a hack, and somewhat mean spirited, so that's not helping. He got screwed over by his young wife back in the day when they were both in a band that went huge - only Black got into a bar fight the week before the beginning of the big tour and broke his hand, so they replaced him. And then his wife had an affair with the attorney who wound up handling the divorce, as well as doing him out of most of his royalties. So he's a bitter guy. A string of loser entrepreneurial disasters left him struggling, and a PI as a last resort career. Watching a character like that go through the day, where the world is against him, is just...funny. In kind of an evil way. Those with a similar sense of humor to mine will find it a hoot. Others will probably think I've lost my mind. They're probably both right, but that's a different story...

Q: Give us some background about the supporting cast.

RB: Let's see. We have Roxie, who is the assistant from hell. She's extremely dry and deadpan, and she gives Black unending crap whenever she can. She's hot, a singer in an art rock band, about 17 years younger than him w/full-sleeve tats, and delights in tormenting him about everything from his vices to his wardrobe. There's Mugsy, who's an obese stray cat that adopted Black, and who barely tolerates him - but loves Roxie. Black's parents, who are filthy rich throwbacks to the sixties whose harebrained business enterprises wound up making them ten fortunes while Black scratches out a living, recur in each book. They're all about peace and love and positive energy and the Summer of Love, and drive him batty - and further enrage him with their success, which he views as a personal sleight from a universe that hates him. His LAPD detective buddy, Stan, is even more cynical than he is, and their interactions are some of my favorite bits in the books. And of course, there's a cast of characters that could only happen in L.A., which seasons the whole story in a way that's distinct to the place.

Q: What's next? More BLACK books?

RB: You betcha. I foresee a bunch of them. I've never had this much fun with characters in my life, so expect to see more where that came from...
