As the United States enters World War II, military commanders send their best officers to set up an amphibious training camp on Florida’s desolate Gulf coast. Major Occam Goodwin anticipates challenges—swamps, snakes, alligators, hurricanes—and the daunting task of turning twenty thousand green recruits into warriors. But when his surveyors discover a murdered black family deep in the forest, he must dance delicately around military politics, and a race war that threatens the entire war effort.
*
Here, in this harsh but mystically beautiful land, young recruits test themselves to the limit in love and combat; politicos and tycoons offer aid with one eye to profit; women patrol the coast on horseback, looking for German subs; a postmaster’s daughter, the only child on base, inspires thousands; a determined woman bravely holds together her family and the emotional soul of the camp. Amid tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the soldiers and their country hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to find his destiny.
&
Based on the true story of Camp Gordon Johnston, this novel is about young men on the brink of war, and a country on the brink of civil rights, a tale of soldiers and officers, daughters and mothers, death and redemption, and a man unyielding in his integrity, compassion, and struggle for justice.

Everything in Arabelle’s life is coming together. She has confidence, great friends, she’s even dating Naak, a wealthy Thai socialite. But there are too many models in Bangkok. Arabelle’s broke, she can’t find an agent in New York, and Naak isn’t as wonderful as he first appears.

Slowly the Shadows creep back into Arabelle’s mind, bringing with them thoughts of hopelessness and despair. The vile Shadows know something Arabelle’s refusing to remember and, if she’s not careful, they’ll use it to destroy her.

Based on a true story, Arabelle’s Shadows takes us on a journey through the struggles of growing up, not quite making it as an international model, and attempting to overcome a crushing depression.

From a Siberian prison to a Chinese temple, from a Kenyan wildlife preserve to the very ends of the earth, every answer they find only raises more questions.

And the only revelation more terrifying than the demons’ plan for the human race is the discovery of the unspeakable act committed by Zelda herself which set all of these events in motion in the first place.

‘You got me back. You always said you would.’

Ash DeMorgan, graduate, orphan, ice maiden, has long since consigned the fairytale nightmares of a troubled childhood to the realm of fantastical childish imagination.

Now, lured back to Dublin, the scene of her tragic past, Ash encounters a city pulsing under the dangerous sexual influence of a new street drug the locals call Rave. Nothing is as it seems. Ash is about to discover that her nightmares are real, ancient Irish myths are larger than life and roaming the streets of the medieval city, and she has become the prey in their erotic hunt. A step back into her past is about to become a high adrenaline race for survival.

Connal Savage, outcast, assassin, and living, breathing hunk of ancient mythology, has lived a thousand years servicing a debt of revenge. Dead inside. Until he encounters his boss’s granddaughter, an infuriating woman who threatens to lead him to hell with all his good intentions, who manages to chip away at the hard encrusted defences of a lifetime spent at war and burrow herself deep into a part of him that hasn’t breathed for centuries. He is about to discover that when it comes down to the wire, when you’re bargaining with the Grim Reaper for the life of the one you love, you will do anything…

thereluctantweddingplanner-200 (2)The Reluctant Wedding Planner by Eva Scott
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Price: $3.99
Where to Get It:
Musa Publishing       Amazon

^

^

Dr Camden James is a rural vet, not a wedding planner, so he quickly feels out of his depth when, in a fit of generosity, he offers to glam up his sister’s budget wedding in a secret move designed to surprise her. With only six weeks to make this the wedding of his sister’s dreams he needs to move fast.

Stumbling around in the largely female world of weddings he gets a lead on the go-to girl for wedding flowers – Georgiana Mac Intyre. Georgi, reeling from a very public breakup, is not interested in men in anyway shape or form. Not even super-cute vets – even when they are clearly interested in her.

Cam shamelessly uses his story to get her to help. It has all the elements; romance against the odds, true love, orphans (you can’t have good story without an orphan or two), and a bride.

As an anthropologist, Holly McCartney is more comfortable in a museum than shopping on Rodeo Drive.

Though he resents her for some reason, she can’t fight their irresistible chemistry—especially when the paparazzi force her to stay at his mansion.

Photographer Nate only agrees to help Holly survive Hollywood for her sister’s sake, but she soon gets under his skin in a way no other woman has.

What they’re saying about it:

A Must Read Tale of Love and Loss

“From the first chapter of Tree Change, I cared. I cared about the characters and what had happened and what would happen to them. A riveting mix of romance and drama this debut novel by Tea Cooper is set in Sydney and the north coast. The settings are depicted with vibrancy and colour, as are the characters. Tea’s grasp of characterization, descriptive language, plot and themes of love, loss and preservation have an originality that shines through and embraces the reader until the final page.”–LorryH Amazon Five Stars

$
Taste The Sea
“I could taste the salt on the sea breeze as I lost myself in this delightful story about Cassia and Jake. My heart bled for Cassia when she returned to the home they had both shared to find she had been replaced by another woman. I can’t reveal more in case I spoil it for other readers but not is all as it seems. A fabulous tale of love lost and found with a decent dash of mystery to keep the heart pounding.”–Ann B Harrison Amazon Five Stars

Genre: Fantasy, Steampunk
Price: $3.99

When Eizenfeng’s leading wizards combine science with magic, the world changes dramatically. Technological      advancements, coupled with racial and economic tensions propel the country toward war with a longtime ally. Jeunelux is oblivious to the building turmoil; scorching days harvesting tomatoes and her annoying older brother are more pressing concerns.

Suddenly, strange dreams that haunt her nights become reality.  Jeunelux, along with two other untrained and unlicensed teen wizards embark on a quest to save the girl’s father, rescue a giant, and prevent a war. The three friends must quickly hone their magical skills and take on responsibilities beyond their years to save innocent lives.

What they’re saying:

“Duck Blood Soup is geared toward teen readers but the political, military, and emotional      story lines appeal to a wider audience.  Duck Blood Soup humanizes the antagonists, has characters that are neither invincible nor untiring, and introduces new races of creatures.  Incorporating firearms, airships, and railroads further differentiates Duck Blood Soup from other fantasy novels.”

(Scotland 1388: Fergus Scott of Eildon is sent northward to investigate reports of a new power rising in the Highlands. Enticed into the power of the ferocious Alistair Mor, Wolf of Bedonoch, the lovely but quick tempered Seonaid aids him in his battle against enchantment and death.
&
As witches gather to recreate the terrifying Book of Black Earth, and the army of Donald of the Isles marches to confront Alistair, Fergus must try and save his soul and his country.

But this is a book of a long and grand adventure, that Mr. Archibald weaves history through with his fiction to make the story that much richer. It’s full of the sense of time being against you, making you want to read faster and absorb every part of the journer, mysticism, legend and some magic. Yet another excellent book. If you’ve read the other reviews I’ve written for Malcolm Archibald’s books, you can see I’m a big fan and that’s for a reason
