As a security specialist, Vivien Flowers is a perfectionist. So when two very important paintings she had been hired to protect are stolen, her  highly structured world is turned upside down and she must get them  back. It’s too bad art theft is not very high on the Los Angeles Police  Department’s list of priorities. So when Vivien is joined by a handsome  insurance agent eager to prevent the multi-million dollar claim from  being paid, they use any means necessary to track down the location of  the stolen paintings. But is Vivien willing to become a thief herself to get the paintings back? The answer leads her on a journey of intrigue,  deceit, crime and even love as she travels from Los Angeles to Paris and discovers the true brilliance she is capable of.

What they’re saying about it:

I totally loved it! defiantly not my usual type of read. I was a bit  skeptical at first but intrigued by the storyline. Leti Del Mar tells a  story that captures you and then doesn’t let go, I couldn’t put the  story down! Vivian is an amazing character who is so determined, witty,  hardheaded, but at the same time easily hurt. She blends well into the  world of art and security, and when she meets Walt/Nathan the book  couldn’t get any better!

MY TEMPORARY LIFE by MARTIN CROSBIE
Genre:  Romantic, Suspense
Price: $3.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)
*
*
*
“It has everything, simply everything-a coming of age, a romance, and a thriller rolled into one delightful read.
8
From the very first sentence, we’re drawn into the harsh Scotland schoolboy world of Malcolm and Hardly. Malcolm’s summers in Canada with his mother offer little comfort. He survives by running; running through the streets, running between Scotland and Canada, running from himself and his past.
Flash ahead 20 years. In Canada, Malcolm meets Heather, a woman haunted by an evil secret. When they camp at the Lake at the end of the World, they discover there is nowhere left to run, for either of them.
Like the great 19th century writers (but with a lighter touch), Martin Crosbie takes Malcolm from a life focused on the primary needs of food, sex and basic survival to loftier aspirations. He enters an intangible, often illusory world of evil that requires enormous human faith; and tosses the reader onto a thrilling rollercoaster ride. Again and again he refuses to walk away from heart hammering danger.
8
Mr. Crosbie’s deft character-development pen never allows the reader to question Malcolm’s choices. He has prepared for this journey since his boyhood days in Scotland. This time, he’s not backing down, whatever the cost.”
8
There were moments of magic, scenes filled with foreboding, passages that were poetic and ruminative, others that were breathtaking. The masterful handling of Malcolm’s mother, was brilliant. There were many scenes, especially toward the end, that were fast-paced and made the book impossible to put down.”

Revenant by Allan Leverone
Genre: Horror, Supernatural Suspense
Price: $3.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon.com (Kindle)
*
*
A sacred Navajo artifact, imbued with a shocking and dangerous power.
*
An amoral con man, willing to stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
*
And a tiny northern Maine town, isolated and vulnerable.
*
Last November, Paskagankee, Maine was shaken to its core, held hostage by a centuries-old curse, terrorized by a brutal killing spree stopped at the last possible moment by new police chief Mike McMahon and beautiful young patrol officer Sharon Dupont.
*
Now, just as the pair – and the town – is beginning to recover, a new horror comes calling.
*
Billionaire Seattle software designer Brett Parker is in Paskagankee to check on the progress of his newly-constructed summer retreat. But he’s not the only new resident in town. Max Acton, murderous sociopath and Arizona cult leader, has gained possession of a long-hidden sacred Navajo artifact with the ability to reanimate the dead.
*
Acton aims to use the stone in a murderous plot to kidnap Parker and steal his revolutionary new software design developed for the U.S. Department of Defense, selling it to the highest bidder and making millions. He doesn’t even need to get his hands dirty. All he needs is a victim to kill . . . and reanimate . . . and force to do his bidding.
*
All he needs is a revenant.
*
And the revenant is angry. And he’s deadly. And he’s unstoppable. And the town of Paskagankee will once again become a battleground between the living and the dead . . .
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“I first read Paskagankee, and I can tell you that it was a book that had me sitting on the edge of my seat, definitely a page turner. So, when Revenant came out, I of course had to get it also. Revenant was, In my opinion a well written, well researched book, that made you feel that you were right there.”
