Samreen Ahsan

This multiple award winner is now putting the finishing touches on the [Stolen] time travel-romance series, in which 21st-century model and actress Myra Farrow is pulled back to haunted medieval Hue Castle. Coming next is

Once Upon a [Broken] Time

“Ask for anything,” I said, my breath still running wild from her kiss. “Ask for anything, and I’d lay at your feet.” Her eyes widened with surprise.

Staring at me for a few heartbeats, she gave a mischievous smile. “Are you sure, my lord?” Something bright danced behind her eyes.

“Anything, Bellissima,” I answered, drinking every drop of her beauty. Her lips parted in surprise for me calling her Bellissima. She was indeed the most beautiful woman in my world. “Name anything and I’d bring it for you but don’t ask me to catch the stars.” I returned a small smile.

“Ah!” she exclaimed. “I’m not craving stars, my lord but…” she paused to think. “Chocolate.” I drew my eyebrows, unsure what she was asking. “I want to eat chocolate.”

next ebook to hit the virtual shelves will be Dead Man Lying, the third Hawaiian Storm mystery.

Vanessa was just about to step onto the path when a koa tree exploded. Wood chips flew through the heavy air and the sound of a shotgun rolled up the slope.

Lani threw herself off the path, pushing the pudgy Jeffrey Sangster down. Behind her, Vanessa dropped to the ground and rolled, tearing her jacket on ragged volcanic rock. They held still, barely breathing, counting the seconds as the top half of the koa tree slowly toppled.

About the book

FBI Special Agent Vanessa Storm returns to Hana on Maui’s rain coast to investigate the death of a famous singer, and finds his whole family is hiding secrets. But the dead man may be the biggest liar of all.

The award-winning audiobook edition of Second World War-era novel The Jøssing Affair will soon be out, first on Chirp, and soon on Audible.

In wartime, love and trust are not always compatible.

Tore Haugland is a jøssing—a patriot—sent to a fishing village on Norway’s west coast to set up a line to receive weapons and agents from England via the “Shetland Bus.” Posing as a deaf fisherman, his mission is complicated when he falls in love with Anna Fromme, a German widow. Accused of betraying her husband, she has a young daughter and secrets of her own.

Although the Allies have liberated France, the most zealous Nazis hang on in Norway, sending out agents to disembowel resistance groups. When Haugland is betrayed and left for dead, he will have to find the one who destroyed his network. He will also have to prove that the one he loves was not the informer.

Alan McDermott

The bestselling master of the action thriller steps into the serial killer-police procedural with Fifteen Times a Killer, coming soon.

It took half an hour under the blazing sun before she reached the plateau, and Jess was ready to drop. She collapsed onto a log, and as she waited to get her breathing under control, she looked around.

There was no dead body, but then she hadn’t really expected one. Jess started to look for signs of disturbed soil, but again came up empty. What she did find were two crossed sticks lying on the ground. Standing over them and checking her app again, she saw that she was in the right place.

She took a few pictures on her phone, then turned to leave.

And found herself staring down the barrel of a gun.

Look for this new venture before the end of spring. And don’t worry, Alan is hard at work on a new thriller.

David C. Cassidy

As always, the master of horror has many irons in the fire. Just try not to worry about what his characters will do with them.

He hopes to release 1944 this year, and perhaps a few more.

He knelt slowly, steadying himself on the table with the three fingers of his left hand. With his right he fetched the remote and raised the volume on the LED display. Maybe he just didn’t hear right.

You heard just fine, old man. You just didn’t want to.

On the TV, an attractive brunette, a broadcast journalist from Channel 56, stood at the side of a secondary road surrounded by dense forest. A light dusting of snow had fallen.

“The four bodies were found not far from where I’m standing, at a campsite just down the road.”

DG Torrens

The award-winning and bestselling author of the Amelia’s Story series is hard at work on Amnesia, the story of a woman working to reclaim her memory, and her life, after a trauma she cannot remember.

Cassie repeatedly rubbed her wrist with her thumb until it was sore.

“Do you remember anything from that day, Cassie?”

The question unnerved her. She turned away briefly while contemplating her answer.

Her therapist studied Cassie while patiently awaiting her reply.

Cassie shook her head and dipped her eyes.

“That’s okay. Your memory will return eventually. It has only been two months. The brain is a complex organ and serves to protect us against trauma. Your mind has shut down and will return when you are better able to cope with the tragic events of that day.”

Memory’s Edge, Part Two

The USA Today bestselling author continues the heartbreaking romancce that began with Memory’s Edge.

It was all gone. All of it! Every last stitch of wedding preparation, her dress, John’s personal effects and recipes, pictures of them, everything. Instead of crumbling into a sobbing mess as most people who knew her would have expected, her hand clenched into fists and she screamed out her hurt and fury.

About the book

After a year of living with Gretchen after being attacked and left for dead with no memory of his former life, John’s memory returns when his wife and children find him. Leaving Gretchen weeks before their planned wedding breaks both their hearts. 

As they both face starting over, again, the pull to fall back into the familiarity of each other’s arms weighs heavily against facing the struggle to move forward.
