By the author of the critically acclaimed novel, Casting Lots, William D. McEachern, Caledonia: A Song of Scotland is his second historical novel. Caledonia is the epic tale of Scotland’s struggle to become an independent nation. In the process, the story of Scotland is revealed in its people, the Picts, the Irish Missionaries, the Norsemen, and the Highland Clans. All the natural beauty and wonder that is Scotland are captured for the reader’s enjoyment, from the wind-swept Isle of Skye through the Highlands with its towering bens, with numerous waterfalls, across the moors, purple with heather, and dotted with sheep and the lowing, ruddy Highland cattle, to the reflecting waters of the lochs, some mysterious and mist-laden, like Loch Ness, or picturesque, like Loch Lomond. Told from the viewpoint of one clan-the MacDonalds of Clanranald-the reader is swept along through the major events in the history of Scotland, from the writing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320, the Massacre at Glencoe by the Campbells, the MacDonalds greatest enemy, through the Rising of 1745 under Bonnie Prince Charles’ to the decisive defeat at The Battle of Culloden and the bloody Highland Clearances under William, the Duke of Cumberland. Caledonia acquaints the reader with why so deeply ingrained in Scotland’s national psyche is its fight for freedom, both political and religious. Caledonia is the first novel in the series which will tell the story of the Scots not only in Scotland, but also in America.

BOOK BLURB

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends!

In HEARTS at SEASIDE…
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident–except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter–and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux–the most alpha male she’s ever seen–or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Synopsis:

Thousands of years ago, an ancient species from the sea saved humanity; now a cocky, free-diving photographer tortured by his past is the unlikely hero who must save the last of their kind from a global race between nations to control the creature’s power.

IN ALMOST EVERY BELIEF SYSTEM ON EARTH, there exists a single unifying mythos: thousands of years ago a great flood devastated the Earth’s inhabitants. From the ruins of this cataclysm, a race of beings emerged from the sea bestowing knowledge and culture upon humanity, saving us from our selfish drive toward extinction. Some say this race were “ancient aliens” who came to assist our evolution. But what if they weren’t alien at all? What if they evolved right here on Earth, alongside humans . . . and they are still here? And, what if the World’s governments already know?

Kelly Graham is a narcissistic, self-assured, freelance photographer specializing in underwater assignments. While on a project in the Amazon with his best friend, Chris D’Souza, a mysterious and beautiful government official, Freya Nilsson, enters Kelly’s life and turns it upside down. Her simple request to retrieve a strange object from deep underwater puts him in the middle of an international conspiracy. A conspiracy that threatens to change the course of human history.

 

 

Read an excerpt:

Freya elegantly glided in front of Kelly, breaking his train of thought. Her slender body slid through the water with grace and ease. She must have sensed his stare, because she turned her head to face him and gave a huge, regulator-filled grin. Kelly stifled a laugh.

He turned back to his equipment to check their depth—sixty-five feet. They were at the sea floor. It wasn’t very deep, but this was where it was supposed to be. He motioned his right arm to get Freya’s attention. He then signaled for her to look down and keep her eyes open. She gave the okay sign.

As they swam a little further, the structure came into sight just as Alexandro’s information had indicated. A large horseshoe-shaped wall, three-feet thick and six-feet tall, spanned more than two-hundred-fifty feet in diameter. Other than that, it was unimpressive—just an old stone wall. Surely, if a team had already been down here, they would have found an orb? Kelly pulled himself along the bottom, sifting through the sand, picking up each stone he came across. He shook his head and looked across at Freya. She seemed to be having similar poor luck, pointlessly rummaging through silt and mud. He swam across to her and pointed in front, indicating his intent to look on ahead. She nodded and watched as he flicked his fins, disappearing into a haze of ocean and sand particles.

Freya returned to her treasure hunt. All she found were rocks and the odd tin or soft drink can. Ugh, it was disgusting. Even the ocean wasn’t safe from humanity. She reached the outer edge of the stone wall and swam along, keeping close to it. Her gloved fingers prodded into each crack and crevice, not that she could feel anything through the thick material. Her mask was beginning to fill with water. She thought about Kelly’s instruction and began the mask clearing procedure.

Pressing the palm of her right hand against the top of her mask so the bottom released a few millimeters from her face, she exhaled hard through her nose, forcing the water out. A stream of bubbles crashed about her head in a white-water curtain. As it cleared, a small metallic glint protruding from beneath one of the huge stone bricks caught her eye. She clawed her way to it, then started digging in the sand. The fine silt clouded up around her, obscuring her view. Using only her limited sense of touch, Freya kept tunneling under the wall. The familiar shape of a box began to form under her fingers. She dug beneath until she could grip the box with both hands. Tugging hard, she released the cuboid object from its hold in the silt. The billow of sand cleared.

She stared at her treasure. It was a small chest, copper-colored with a green oxidized coating on its surface. She smiled. Could this be it? Could there be an orb inside? The excitement power through her. She raised her head to see if Kelly was nearby, but he wasn’t anywhere to be seen. She swam in a circle. The inability to hear or feel anything was unnerving. She only had the power of sight and that was restricted to a straight line in front of her for one hundred fifty feet or so.

The light above her dimmed. Freya frowned and raised her head to investigate. Above her, the huge shadow of a shark glided by. She knew her mask would magnify any object, but still, the thing looked huge. Its blunt snout and thick body looked positively primeval—the perfect predator. Panic set in.

Damn, where was Kelly? Clutching her treasure, Freya lowered her head. She searched for the knife strapped to her right calf. Before she could find it, her gaze was met by the cold stare of reptilian eyes. A sea snake was inches from her face, rippling its body to hold its position. Its eyes were fixed on hers. She froze, holding her breath. Freya shifted her focus from the uncomfortably close predator to the shadow lurking behind it. Oh God. The shark?

It was Kelly. A brief feeling of relief washed over her, but it was snatched away by the searing pain of fangs plunging into her left hand. Freya gargled a scream through her regulator and dropped the box, letting it fall to the sea floor. The snake shot off into murk as Kelly tore through the water toward her. Her breathing slowed and her limbs grew heavy. Her eyelids slid closed. She blinked before her eyes closed one last time.

ISBN: 9780008207748
Series: Nadia Laksheva Spy Thriller #1
Purchase Links: Amazon 🔗 | Barnes & Noble 🔗 | Goodreads 🔗

 

 

A chilling and utterly compelling thriller that you won’t be able to put down!

The only thing worth killing for is family.

Everyone said she had her father’s eyes. A killer’s eyes. Nadia knew that on the bitterly cold streets of Moscow, she could never escape her past – but in just a few days, she would finally be free.

Bound to work for Kadinsky for five years, she has just one last mission to complete. Yet when she is instructed to capture The Rose, a military weapon shrouded in secrecy, Nadia finds herself trapped in a deadly game of global espionage.

And the only man she can trust is the one sent to spy on her…

 

Read an excerpt

‘Let’s see if you can really shoot. Give her your pistol,’ Kadinsky said to one of the henchmen, the one with a pockmarked face – Pox, Nadia named him – who immediately lost his sense of humour.

She took the weapon from his outstretched hand, weighed it in her palm. An old-style Smith & Wesson. God knows why the guy had it. Most blatnye preferred semi-autos, Makarovs or the older but higher-velocity Tokarevs. She checked that it was loaded, all six bullets nestling in their chambers. She glanced at Kadinsky, thought about killing him. But the other henchman, the fat one with slicked black hair – hence, Slick – had his Glock trained on her, his lopsided leer daring her.

Kadinsky waved a hand towards Katya, five metres away. He tilted his head left and right, then settled back against the soft leather, took a gulp of whiskey, and smacked his lips. ‘The red rose in the bowl of flowers behind her left ear. Shoot it. From where you stand.’

Slick’s eyes flicked toward Katya, gauging the angles. His leer faded.

Nadia stared at her sister and the rose. Most of it was behind her head. Only one leaf of the scarlet blossom was exposed. She swallowed, then lifted the revolver, and took up a shooting stance like her father had taught her. Right arm firm, elbow not fully locked, left hand under the fist, prepared for the recoil. She had to do it before anger built and disrupted her concentration. She cocked the hammer, lined up the shot, then spoke to Katya’s serene, trusting face: ‘Love you,’ she said. Then she breathed out slowly, as if through a straw, and squeezed the trigger.

Masonry exploded behind Katya. The crack was so loud that three other men burst into the room, weapons drawn. Kadinsky waved them back as Pox peeled the revolver from Nadia’s stiff fingers. Petals fluttered to the floor amidst a plume of white powder from the impact crater in the wall. Katya sat immobile, pale, the hair on the left side of her head ruffled as if by a gust of wind. A trickle of blood oozed from her left temple, and ran down her cheek.

Katya, lips trembling, beamed at Nadia. ‘Still alive,’ she said, her voice hoarse. She touched the graze with an unsteady forefinger.

Nadia began to shake. She folded her arms, refusing to give Kadinsky the satisfaction.

Spotlight: Soul to Soul: Creating a Successful Relationship by Joseph McKeaney

The issue of relationships and partners will undoubtedly form one of the more complex issues we are likely to face in our lives. As contemporary people, we are singularly unprepared for the full range of issues and hidden elements within relationships that we will ultimately encounter.

The modern idea of confidence, happiness and self-empowerment is to strive to acquire wealth, status, material possessions, and this is equated with the fulfilment we are all seeking. In tandem with this, to develop a co-relationship with a partner, a bond which is both enriching and satisfying, but nowhere in the structure or content of secular life are any indications given as to how we achieve the latter i.e. how to prepare oneself and how to choose a partner who matches our own nature. In fact, this is singularly missing from our modern cultures. In ancient times, this facet of life consisted of a whole branch of arcane science = the Science of Types or Essence Types.

When we reach adulthood, we only possess the vaguest idea what type of partner will fulfil our nature; the person who will be the ‘ying’ to our ‘yang’. It is a mystery to be solved, and we blunder along in many cases, with a line of failure behind us, because we lack experience and we can only be described as immature or naive. We have no idea, in general how to measure others or even what will make us happy in this life – everything is a gamble in many respects.

Our task is to educate ourselves in relation to our own intrinsic nature and also, that of others. It is only through understanding human nature and all of our contemporary weaknesses, faults, and peccadillos, that we can hope to have the necessary insights to avoid incompatible partners in life. We can save ourselves a vast amount of hardship and pain by doing a little preparatory work – in advance. This is partly the raison d’etre of this current nexus of materials. We will take a forensic look at the make-up and psychology of our contemporary relationships and just as important – the art of relating. Much is determined by communication, and communication is based predominantly on the qualities of the people in any given relationship – this is a universal rule.

 

“Soul to Soul:  Creating a Successful Relationship” by Joseph McKeaney is currently available from Amazon UK in hardback, paperback, and e-book.

It is also available from  Amazon US.

DAYS OF DESIRE
by Tina Donahue
Genre: Historical Romance
Pub Date: 7/4/2017
In a pirate’s lair, nothing is as it seems . . .
Shipwrecked!
When Royce Hastings is found washed up on the shore of a verdant tropical
island, he tells the natives he is a merchant headed for Mozambique.
The truth, however, is far more mercenary. Noble by birth, the once
favored Royce has lost his fortune and family; now he is a hired
henchman on the trail of an elusive pirate. His “shipwreck” was a
fake. He’ll stop at nothing to infiltrate the island and capture
his prey. His mother and sisters’ lives depend on it.
The last thing Royce expects is to be captured himself. But the lovely young woman
who tends to his wounds in the tropics quickly takes hold of his
heart. Simone is the island’s healer, and her skilled ministrations
not only awaken his soul but disturb his conscience. His path has
been predetermined; his identity must remain concealed at all costs.
Yet the passion he feels in Simone’s sultry, loving arms cannot be
denied. With his loyalties torn, Royce must make an agonizing,
unthinkable choice. . . .

Prologue

Mozambique—1717

 

“Diana Fletcher is mine.” Benedict Bishop pinched snuff generously

between his stout fingers. “You will make certain to deliver her.”

In times past, Royce Hastings would have dismissed Bishop as the

swine he was. Not now. Circumstances were not in Royce’s favor, his

loved ones’ future in his hands. If he made a wrong move or didn’t do

everything Bishop demanded of him, his mother and sisters would pay

with their freedom, virtue, and perhaps their lives.

Quelling his outrage, he simply listened and endured.

Bishop sniffed the tobacco. Face contorted, he sneezed explosively into

a lace-edged handkerchief then blew his nose. The resultant honk mingled

with the din outside the shadowed room. Horse hooves clopped, carriage

wheels clattered, merchants hawked their wares. Slaves were among the

items purchased.

A nude young woman, her skin as dark as night, fanned Bishop with

ostrich feathers. The air she produced did naught to relieve the oppressive

heat and humidity flowing through the open windows.

Sweat bathed Bishop’s ruddy face and numerous chins. He blotted each.

Another female slave knelt on the polished stone floor, kneading his

fleshy calves and naked feet.

He cleared his throat. “Tristan Kent will hang, of course, along with

Diana’s brother, Peter.” His beady eyes gleamed. “That will teach her to

try to get away from me.”

Only a woman gone mad would willingly be at Bishop’s side. Old

and ugly, he stank of rose water, the scent heavy and cloying. “Have

you considered Diana never joined you here because she and the others

might be dead?”

“Impossible.” He set his powered wig more firmly on his head. “Natives

have heard of a white man and others on an island off Madagascar. From the

description they provided, that man has to be Kent and his pirate crew. They

also mentioned a white woman. Who else but Diana could be with them?”

“How can you be certain the natives spoke truthfully?”

“Woolding.”

Nasty business that consisted of a rope wrapped around a victim’s

skull, then tightened until his eyes burst out. The perfect torture chosen

by barely civilized men. “How many did you have questioned and killed?”

“Enough. Once my agents dispatched several, those remaining were

eager to divulge everything. Except the island location, which they swore

they didn’t know. I believe them.” He flicked a persistent fly from his

brocade coat. “Even a witless savage wouldn’t willingly die or risk his

children’s deaths to keep such a secret. The whereabouts are for you to

discover. My crew will help you capture Diana, the others, and islanders,

if there are any. The natives should bring a fair slave price, compensating

me for losing the Lady Lark. However, if the vessel’s about, you’ll return

it with everything else.”

As easily as that. The man was either stupid or insane. “Have you any

idea who Tristan Kent truly is? Not romantic rumors on how he treats his

crew and captives, but fact. Mainly, what he’s capable of.”

“He’s taken enough ships from me to prove he must hang. I will not

rest until he does.” Continue reading

Every night a man appeared from the recesses of her mind as if he was waiting for sleep to claim her. She couldn’t see his features fully, yet he was the epitome of sensuality, of male magnetism and allure. They never touched, yet her skin burned as if he’d run his fingers across her flesh; her lips tingled as if a kiss as light as air had landed on them. He teased her in her dreams and she yearned for him.

She’d wake in the morning, frustrated and horny and no closer to discovering who was haunting her dreams. She figured her dreams were being invaded, but couldn’t work out how or why. Her ability was visions. She could touch a person and catch a glimpse of their future. Sometimes she could see the past from touching inanimate objects. The dreams were way different from anything she’d ever seen or done before. Yet somehow, they were connected. She just needed to figure out how.

that Georgia is a witch, she has to pull herself together.


In the meantime, the Witch Hunter has woken and he wants nothing more

Georgia and her Aunt. His plan of attack? Take control of Zak’s
body.
Zak not being himself has put a serious crimp in her sex life, but there
are other things to consider, like how to create the mother of all
spells that will immobilize the Hunter – and save a coven of
witches. To find the answers she seeks and recover what she’s lost
will take all of Georgia’s courage and a touch of the power she
feels flowing like electricity through her veins, but she’s up to
the challenge.
First Witch is the second book in Jane Hinchey’s paranormal romantic
suspense series, Awakening. If you like sexy vampires, sultry

Romantic Comedy

Date Published: June 2017

Five Wishes Series, Books 1 & 2

 

The Five Wishes Series: Novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Five Wishes…A happy ending is just a coin toss away. Each novella is approximately 100 pages with NO cliffhanger.

 

Book 1: Going Down:

Marion MacAlister wants to nail her audition, not get nailed. Truly. Honestly. All right…maybe she does want to get nailed, but that’s just because her hottie landlord and local diner owner Mack Ryan is confusing her. Can friends become lovers? Especially friends who might not even be friends in the first place?

 

Book 2: Man Candy:

Raine Harper is in love with Wade Gates. But Wade likes women who are model thin, and Raine is model thin plus a whole lot of pounds. Desperate to make him love her, she trains just a little too hard and passes out in the arms of superstar movie star Dirk Adams. Dirk thinks Raine’s junk in the trunk is perfect and proposes to make Wade jealous by becoming her pretend boyfriend. Pretend soon seems very real. Is Dirk a great actor, or is something really developing between Raine and the movie star?
