Marya Helwe is twenty-one, but she’s never had a boyfriend. She’s never been past second base for that matter. Her over-protective Syrian parents have ensured she’s stayed as sheltered as possible, despite the fact Marya is American born and raised. But Marya manages to convince her parents to let her go on an archeological dig in Jordan, and she’s determined to make the most of her first taste of independence.
Almost instantly, Marya finds herself drawn to two very different men: Ash, a wealthy and dashing Jordanian, is exactly the kind of guy Marya’s parents would have hand-picked for her; and Luke, an American archaeologist with a “bad boy” streak and a mysterious link to the ongoing Arab Spring. Ash pursues her, while Luke tries to avoid her, and as Marya untangles her feelings about both men, as well as herself, she catches the fever for freedom.

New Gay Series to Pay Tribute to Sixteen Candles Movie and Other Awesome John Hughes Movies and Era of the 80es in General. Sam never liked his birthdays because not a single one of them was happy… When he turned 1, he fell face-down into his birthday cake; when he turned 5, he broke his left arm and when he turned 7, he broke his right arm and his left leg; when he turned 12, his house caught fire. Now Sam is about to turn 16 and he is dreading the day. The only birthday wish he has is for Jake who is the Mr. Popular of Arcadia High to even acknowledge his existence, or better yet give him a happy-birthday kiss.
But Sam knows that it’s not gonna happen. Or is it?
What they’re saying about it:
BoyMeetsBoy Reviews – I stayed up way too late to finish this one last night. The whole “John Hughes” feel was captured really well and I absolutely loved Sam and his birthday drama.
Multitaskingmomma Reviews – My wishes came true while I was reading this book. Turning 16 is probably one of the best reads about a young man and his finding love at 16. It is funny, engaging, and a very light read.

Zena McGrath is a detective working for an International Police Organisation at their Dublin Office. A routine day is turned upside down when she receives a call from her boss in the New York office.
A number of Catholic Priests have died in mysterious circumstances, the latest being an Irish Priest based at the Vatican. The Vatican authorities claim the deaths are due to natural causes. Brian Evens; Zena’s Superior officer based in New York tells Zena she must fly to Rome and meet a high-ranking Vatican Priest to discuss the case.
When Zena arrives at the Vatican she is greeted by Cardinal Donatello, a mysterious figure who has responsibility for training priests in the secretive and highly dangerous art of Exorcism. He reveals to Zena that the Priests who have died were all Exorcists and takes her on a shocking visit to see a Priest who is possessed by evil spirits.
Cardinal Donatello reluctantly reveals the seriousness of the problems the Vatican is facing in the eternal battle between good and evil and Zena herself has a chilling encounter with a demonic presence. Although shocked and disturbed by what she has seen at the Vatican, Zena is persuaded by Cardinal Donatello to allow the Vatican Authorities to fight the evil in their own way and not pursue her investigation.
Zena convinces Brian Evens that there is nothing to investigate at the Vatican and prepares to return to Dublin, only to be summoned to New York when another Catholic Priest is discovered brutally murdered. Zena flies to New York with a Bible given to her by cardinal Donatello and an evil presence following her every move.
During the course of the murder investigation in New York Zena is persuaded to take part in a Satanic Ritual in order to let her see into the past and reveal the murderer of the Priest. Whilst in a trance she sees the people responsible for the crime and the shocking truth leads her back to Rome and the culprit.
Cardinal Donatello is deported to New York to stand trial for his part in the crime and during the course of the trial the whole shocking truth of the Catholic Church’s battle against evil and the extent of satanic worship is revealed to the incredulous world. Cardinal Donatello is found guilty of his crimes and the revelations spark worldwide revulsion against all forms of religion, something that Zena with her insights into the world of Satan had warned of.
Zena returns to Ireland as the overthrow of world religions gathers pace to find peace and to try and rid herself of the evil spirits that are haunting her. Her quest leads her to the Holy Land in an attempt to find God and inner peace.

Wealthy real estate speculator Nick Campenelli, who wants to legalize prostitution in Clark County, and former pastor Louis St. Louis, running on a ‘clean-up-Vegas-by-getting-rid-of-the-whores’ platform, are the front runners.
They’re also front runners on the suspect list for a string of murders. Kennedy O’Brien, four-year detective with cop blood running in her veins, and her partner Wilder “Wild Thing” James, a veteran, are determined to find the man who’s murdering prostitutes who work the wrong side of the street, and they don’t care how important or politically active he is.
The killer is a man with a mission. He stalks the women before he kills them, leaving a “BEFORE” photo on their bodies, and sending an “AFTER” shot to the local news hound. Ed Hershey, an aging newscaster with just the right amount of grey in his hair, is determined to turn this story into a network gig, and his interference, along with the LVTVS legal team, are making Kennedy and Wilder look bad. Campenelli’s good looks and charm, and St. Louis’ vitriolic hatred of prostitutes are muddying the waters too, and now the killer seems to have taken a liking to Kennedy.
