Author: Nathan Williams

Lukas Dvorak—pacifist, scientist, and circus acrobat— is living his ideal life working as a research analyst for his employer Brooklyn Capital Management, an obscure Wall Street firm located away from the Wall Street establishment in Brooklyn, New York. On an ordinary weekday, this life is inexplicably turned upside down when he is abducted and accused of stealing $15 million from his employer. Faced with a new reality, Dvorak must rely on his own wits and resourcefulness developed from his past experiences as a refugee from war-torn Grozny, Chechnya and as a young American immigrant.

Dvorak is pitted against enemies seen and unseen as he races to track down the identity of his abductors before his past catches up with him. Dvorak receives help in some unlikely places and from an interesting cast of characters as he transforms into his new role as problem solver and escape artist. As he fights his personal struggle for survival, he finds more within himself than he could have ever anticipated.

Title: Breaking Limbo

Author: Kelly O'Callan

"You can't cheat your way into heaven - or lie your way out of hell."

Eleven souls, suicide victims resulting from various issues including: bullying, unwanted teen pregnancy, drug addiction, and sexual abuse awaken from a cocoon-like state, to find themselves on a mysterious realm named Destaris. An Oshlu (spirit guide), named Maree, has been appointed to assist the fallen souls, who are universally intertwined through life experience. The teens must complete their self-interrupted spiritual journey in order to free themselves from the limbo-like realm and move on to the next. Oblivious to their soul’s true desire, they are put through a series of tests that will ultimately deliver them, one by one, through a porthole to their final destination, Heaven or Hell. The group, quite content being free of their earth burdens, soon realize that they cannot escape their biggest nightmare: the inability to escape themselves. They race against time to complete their testing for spiritual growth, for the longer they remain on Destaris, the more they must cope with the return of their former earth burdens. On Destaris, these past hardships re-emerge with a cruel psychedelic twist, as the realm holds unknown bizarre powers beyond those of a simple Earth. Many resist cooperating, for fear of being claimed by the Devil, and become deeper entrenched within their limbo state. This frustrates Maree, as she needs to free every trapped soul in Destaris before she is freed herself. She loses patience when several become uncooperative, tempting her to force the teens out through any porthole she can.

Title: Cade

Author: Liliana Hart

Series: The MacKenzie Brothers #6

Cade MacKenzie is prepared to give his life to destroy the cartel that killed his lover, but the only way to draw them out is to present them with the perfect bait.

Bayleigh Scott has no idea who her new neighbor is, only that her body is drawn to him in ways she can’t explain, and the danger that surrounds him isn’t the deterrent she knows it should be.

More than fireworks explode between Cade and Bayleigh when she discovers the real reason he relentlessly pursued her, but by then it’s too late, because she’s already been drawn into a deadly game of desire, deception and revenge.

Title: The Illegal

Author: A.K. Dawson

It’s Kate Walker’s first day as a member of the Home Office Enforcement Team and she has been given a job to do. She not only has to evict an asylum seeker from the flat where he lives, but from the country.

The problem is that the immigrant, Vincent Mpolo, doesn’t want to comply. He manages to escape and Kate is blamed for his flight.

When it is discovered that Vincent left a dead body behind, Kate decides that she has to track him down. Professional pride is at stake and something else too: Kate isn’t entirely sure that Vincent is the murderer.

Her search takes her to the UK border and she soon finds out that it’s one thing for an illegal immigrant to enter the country, but quite another to escape.

The Illegal is a fast-paced thriller set in North East England. It is a full-length novel.

Title: Stalking Sapphire

Author: Mia Thompson

“I loved this book, I liked the style, I enjoyed the characters and I'm so pleased this is book 1 of a series” —Clare Parrott

“[Sapphire Dubois] kicks butt and takes names. You wouldn't expect that from a spoiled, rich girl… I loved this book.” —Ionia Martin

Despite the illusion Sapphire Dubois presents to the rest of the world, she is not just your stereotypical 22-year old Beverly Hills heiress; she hunts serial killers. While her fellow heirs spend their nights with trending celebs and drugs at the hottest club, Sapphire secretly spends hers luring, capturing, and anonymously handing over So-Cal’s most wanted killers to the police — just your average Tuesday night.

What Sapphire doesn’t know is that one of her adversaries is watching her every move, aware of both her true identity and her unconventional hobby. Needless to say, he doesn’t approve. Used to being the one who redefines the definition of predator and prey, Sapphire’s world abruptly shatters when a gruesome ‘gift’ arrives for her at the Beverly Hills Country Club. With her involuntary crush, handsome Detective Aston Ridder, close on her tail, Sapphire now has to rethink her routine strategy and figure out how to capture a killer who already knows she’s coming.
