London Road: Linked Stories by Tessa Smith McGovern (eChook Digital)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by TessaSmithMcGovern: GOLD MEDAL WINNER 2012 eLIT AWARDS, AMAZON BEST-SELLER

On the morning of her release from prison, the hottest day on record in England, Janice Bailey makes her way to a boarding house in London, and discovers a bizarre new world.

This moving collection of linked short stories begins with 'When Janice Bailey Walked', an award-winning story first published in the Connecticut Review, and continues with six more stories that take place on a single day, as told by the eccentric residents of Number 17, London Road, thus illuminating a little-known side of the most beautiful city in Europe.

Praise for LONDON ROAD: LINKED STORIES:

"...reminiscent of the writer who appears in one of the stories: the great Katherine Mansfield."

Cynthia Rogerson, winner, V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize for a Short Story, 2008, UK

KIRKUS REVIEWS: In seven short stories, residents of a London boardinghouse reach moments of clarity. On London Road, lined with scruffy shops, stands No. 17, a detached red-brick Victorian that's been turned into a boardinghouse. Its residents tend toward hard luck and desperation: Janice is just out of prison; Mandy is on probation; Bitty has a good education, but is scarred by her mother's frequent abandonments; and Isobel is mentally unstable. Nora, the landlady, writes romance novels but has experienced little romance herself, and her daughter, Anna, is disgusted by Isobel's outbursts.
Their interconnected stories take place on a day of unusually hot weather, and focus on one resident at a time, with Janice's story told in two parts. In each, characters have a chance to make a leap of faith in other people, or in the future. In "The Walls of Buckingham Palace," for example, Nora--who adores the queen--reflects on an uneasy encounter with Len, her local pub's new landlord, who drank too much and frightened her off: "But every night since, her sleep had been disturbed by longings she thought had long since been vanquished." It takes queenlike courage for her to return to the pub, where she finds that Len is apologetic, sincere, and kind. Pointing to a framed photograph of the queen, he remarks, "You remind me of her, you do"; nothing, of course, could better gain her trust and win her over.
Though spare and fast-paced, McGovern's (Cocktails for Book Lovers, 2014, etc.) tales evoke entire biographies. She focuses on illuminative details and subtle, turning-point moments, as when Mandy, a young woman on probation, reacts to her mandatory book group's reading of Katherine Mansfield's 1922 short story "The Garden Party." It stokes her resentment, as she doesn't even know if people still give garden parties. Mandy makes plans to shoplift again, but something about the book group leader's hopefulness and the invitation to give her honest opinion sparks her determination to win--maybe a literary argument, or maybe more chocolate wafers. Tales with subtle, positive but never saccharine transformations that feel fully earned."

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M Appel (The Permanent Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDFs sent directly by the author. I am grateful for reviews on LibraryThing, Goodreads, social media, and personal websites/blogs. And please consider adding to your LibraryThing bookshelf.

Description: On the outside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a pillar of the community: the youngest division chief at his hospital, a model son to his elderly parents, fiercely devoted to his wife and two young daughters. On the inside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a high-functioning sociopath—a man who truly believes himself to stand above the ethical norms of society. As long as life treats him well, Balint has no cause to harm others. When life treats him poorly, he reveals the depths of his cold-blooded depravity.

At a cultural moment when the media bombards us with images of so-called sociopaths who strive for good and criminals redeemed by repentance,The Mask of Sanity offers an antidote to implausible tales of evil gone right. In contrast to fictional predecessors like Dostoyevesky's Raskolnikov and Camus' Mersault, Dr. Balint is a man who already has it all —and will do everything in his power, no matter how immoral, to keep what he has.

Karmic Contract by DE Overman (self published)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by David_Overman (author): Please review

Description: At the age of 15, David asked the Universe for the answers to all questions. His thoughts were replaced by "right" thoughts", which resulted in a resolution of dualities, or of balancing them. in order not to be drawn in by the Hegelian Dialectic. In 1981,the RA material was channelled by a scientific team. The philosophy and way of the Universe, mirrored the information David received in 1971. The book is about service to others,as service to self, in a spiritual journey through the dimensions of the universe, as monism, a philosophical view shared by Albert Einstein, wherein the Creator is in all things, as All is One. The philosophy eliminates strife between the man made divisions between all humans regardless of race color creed or religion, by using empathy, and of being of service to others.

Savage Joy by Robert Dunn (coral Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by rgdunn (author): I'm a longtime LibraryThing author, and I'm offering copies of my forthcoming novel, Savage Joy, for readers who like books about music, The New Yorker magazine (where I worked in the 1970s - a basis for the novel), and the whole East Village scene in the early years of punk rock.

Hope you can review the book on Amazon and Goodreads!

Description: An East Village Tenement in the Beatdown Mid-’70s

New Yorker Magazine Literary Parties, Downtown Punk Bacchanals

Love, Music, Blood, and Madness

In 1976, Savage Joy author Robert Dunn (Meet the Annas, Stations of the Cross) moved to New York City, scored a $90-a-month East Village apartment, and got hired at The New Yorker magazine. All life-changing good fortune, and the foundation of this novel, Dunn’s most autobiographical yet.

In Savage Joy the narrator, Cole Whitman, straddles his uptown literary world and the budding Lower Manhattan punk scene. When an apartment in his building at 340 East 11th Street opens up, musician Slater Martin moves in, sweeping Cole along into his CBGBs world. Also moving into 340 is Cole’s elegant and mysterious literary editor pal Emily Prosser, whom Cole desires unrequitedly.

Cole needs a girlfriend, Slater needs a new band, Emily needs a new life. Together the three of them, along with a fiery female drummer called Sailor and a dweeby bassist, Wendell Walter, get a new punk group going, named, by Cole, Savage Joy.

What follows among the five of them is both joyful and savage, a feast of love, music, sex, violence, blood, and madness.

Snow White's Walk of Shame: And other odd short stories by Scott Baron (Curiouser Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by Scott_Baron (author): EBOOK giveaway. You will receive a gift copy direct from Amazon.

Description: Snow White's Walk of Shame brings you a quartet of quirky short stories with a twist. These four offbeat tales follow characters on a wild ride of Twilight Zone-esque adventures that leave you wondering where the winding road will lead you. A familiar fairy tale heroine finds herself in a rather unusual situation. Detectives in a tragic gangland shooting dig for answers as they slowly work toward a surprising truth. A green-technology guru creates world-saving breakthroughs, though they may not be what they seem. And a team of blood-collecting charity workers fall under suspicion of being something far more sinister.

My stories tend towards the offbeat end of the spectrum, so if you enjoy funny and unusual tales, this book is for you!

This is my sixth compilation, and is brand spank-me new. However, if you'd like to read reviews and get a feel for people's reactions to my prior books before giving this one a go, you can find reviews of them on Amazon and Goodreads:
https://www.amazon.com/Scott-Baron/e/B...
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

A select few reviews:

Like O. Henry, Baron's stories serve up creative twists and unusual characters. This latest book is no exception. A good, quick read, with a few stories that stayed with me long after I finished the last page. - Christopher Papastefanou – Writer/Actor The Hugo Allen Experience

Baron's stories are reminiscent of those found in The New Yorker—characters and profound twists on reality that entice you to read the book in a single sitting…and then make want to read them again! – Andrea W.

Scott Baron has a fabulous nasty wit. He is consistent with his style of writing and I still find myself comparing him to Kurt Vonnegut – P.

What a fantastic book of stories. Very rarely do I find such a book. Most stories are just that, stories. However, Scott baron creates characters and worlds that draw you in and hold your attention. - Tim S

Scott’s stories are the quirky kind of wonderful you’d expect if Christopher Moore and S.G. Browne had a bastard love child. Except for the Y chromosome issue.” - Constantine Valhouli, producer / director - Sex, Lies, and Superheroes

Lilly, the daughter of a much-revered Earl, lives a seemingly normal existence… on the surface. But behind the shroud of her status lies a secret – one that will put her at odds with others who wear the Mark of Magic proudly and those whom will bring her harm.
When given the opportunity to learn the truth about her heritage and her lack of magic, she flees her home, naïve to the danger she’ll soon face. With only a horse and an enchanted pendant to guide her, her perilous journey begins, but as the danger rises, she finds an unlikely ally in Andre, a man on the run from his own troubles.
Can they work together to root out the answers she seeks or could the truth be far worse than she could have imagined?

She's the only American citizen in U.S. history officially listed as missing despite her whereabouts being known.

Our heroine's discovered lying under a heap of garbage behind a fast food restaurant in Phoenix: naked, suffering serious head trauma, her body covered in dozens of Yellow Jacket stings. When she wakes up from a lengthy coma, she discovers she has no memory of her past life. Doctors call her condition dissociative amnesia. They hold out little hope. The FBI can’t identify her from fingerprint or facial recognition software; the local police have no leads or clues. And no one comes forward to identify her. She’s a non-entity. A ghost.

But if she's a nobody, then why are there so many strangers threatening her life—anxious to finish the job somebody had started and bungled years before.

Jane Doe soon discovers the most powerful mob in America is tracking her day and night, as well as an FBI Special Agent who won't abandon her case despite being fired for insubordination. A mysterious organization made up of criminals and terrorists are threatening hundreds of lives if she fails to reveal a secret only she has knowledge of . . . but can't possibly remember.

Truth in Ruins by John Edward Lawson (Raw Dog Screaming Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by DogStarBooks (publisher): Given that Lawson is one of the founders of the bizarro genre we are giving away 100 ebook copies every month to raise awareness for our line of bizarro books. If you're unfamiliar with bizarro this could be a good entry point to the genre! Thank you for your interest.

Description: Through a series of dark bizarro adventures Truth in Ruins chronicles the world’s dying gasps. Sneak into the space where flesh is erased and sanity unspools, where casual brutality rules and hilarity ensues. Here flesh is as malleable as one’s morals, everyone is a serial killer, and one must always keep a shotgun at the ready to fend off trolls and kobalds. You have been warned…

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT TRUTH IN RUINS:

"Truth in Ruins by John Lawson was more enjoyable and exciting for me, though perhaps I'm biased by my fascination with ethical apocalypses and human atavism in all its forms. Really exciting stuff that could be very appealing to crossover audiences."
-Garret Cook, author of Murderland and Archelon Ranch

"John Edward Lawson's Truth in Ruins is a violent look at sex, death, and survival in a post-Apocalyptic America, one part Sarah Kane and one part Film Noir."
-JoSelle Vanderhooft for The Pedestal Magazine

"John Edward Lawson's Truth in Ruins is one of the most hyperbolic entries in the entire anthology. In Lawson's grim future humanity is divided into serial killers and profilers, with genetically engineered 'Humanzees' poised to take over after humanity's failure. It's self-consciously, cartoonishly, uber-violent, and narrative chunks are jammed together in ways that emphasize their incongruities, like a movie made of nothing but jump cuts. I sort of liked it, although I had to skim over some stomach-turning bits."

A computer guru with a disturbing past.
A fireman whose disfiguring burns ignite a chain of long buried secrets.

What would you do if you woke up one day looking like a completely different person? After Dr. Thea Donovan performs reconstructive facial surgery on severely injured fireman Malcolm Dean, she is ecstatic with the results. The Reflesh procedure she pioneered with software guru Erik Sorenson far exceeds her expectations. There’s just one problem: the patient doesn’t agree. In fact, the surgery altered his appearance to such an extent that it seems to have changed his personality from a caring, bereaved father and husband, to a man with psychopathic tendencies.

Then when a series of unsolved murders point toward Malcolm Dean Thea must confront the possibility that she has created a killer. And as she uncovers evidence to prove her patient’s innocence, she inadvertently reveals a thirty year old murder mystery.

Steel Victory by J.L. Gribble (Dog Star Books)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by DogStarBooks (publisher): The latest installment of this series is currently available through the Early Reviewer program. For those who are interested in providing an early review, but hesitate because they are unfamiliar with the series, we are providing the first two books in the series through the Member Giveaway feature.

Description: Steel Empires Book 1: Enter Limani

One hundred years ago, the vampire Victory retired from a centuries-long mercenary career. She settled in Limani, the independent city-state acting as a neutral zone between the British and Roman colonies on the New Continent.

Twenty years ago, Victory adopted a human baby girl, who soon showed signs of magical ability.

Today, Victory is a city councilwoman, balancing the human and supernatural populations within Limani. Her daughter Toria is a warrior-mage, balancing life as an apprentice mercenary with college chemistry courses.

Tomorrow, the Roman Empire invades.

What are they saying about Steel Victory

"The innovative combination of genres is appealing, and Gribble's multiple story lines—invasion, anti-creature bias, and intercity politics—mesh very well together….This is a solid first effort that sets the stage for more installments in an intriguing world with complex characters."
—Publishers Weekly

"A deviously raucous romp through a modern world filled with were-creatures, mercenaries, and Victory—a fanged kickass heroine who must squelch her adopted city's political divisiveness before the Roman Empire can break down the proverbial gates and tear her world apart."
—Diana Dru Botsford, author Four Dragons and The Drift

"Strong characters rule in this unique debut. Magic, murder, and mayhem wrapped up in one package—definitely my type of book!"

Steel Magic by J.L. Gribble (Dog Star Books)

Offered by DogStarBooks (publisher): Due to the latest installment of this series (Steel Blood) being offered through the Early Reviewer program we are making the first two books in the series available. That way those who are interested in Steel Blood, but worry about jumping into the middle of a series, can catch up on what they have missed so far.

Description: Steel Empires book 2: Magic is dying…

Funerals are usually the end of the story, not the beginning.

Newly graduated warrior-mages Toria Connor and Kane Nalamas find themselves the last remaining mages in the city when a mage school teacher mysteriously falls ill and dies. But taking over the school themselves isn’t in the cards. They’re set to become professional mercenaries—if they make it through the next 18 months as journeymen first.

The debate over whether to hunt mutated monsters in the Wasteland or take posh bodyguard jobs is put on hold when a city elder hires them to solve the mystery of the disappearing mages. Toria and Kane’s quest brings them to the British colonial city of New Angouleme, where their initial investigation reveals that the problem is even greater than they feared.

But when a friend is kidnapped, they’ll have to travel to the other side of the globe to save her, save themselves, and save magic itself.

What They’re Saying

"In this return to Gribble's unique world-blend of fantasy and alternate history, readers will relish the compelling portrayal of magic and the sometimes easy-going, sometimes sexy, sometimes heart-wrenching tests of the warrior-mage bond."
—Jen Brooks, author of In a World Just Right

"Well-written and a fun read, Steel Magic by J.L. Gribble is filled with mystery, sacrifice, and challenges that will keep you turning the pages until the very end."
—Jennifer Brozek, author of Never Let Me Sleep

Description: Josephine Stepwell Harvell is certainly not lucky in love; from Buddy Washer, the Arizona mistake, who got her pregnant and then got arrested trying to smuggle weed in the belly of a Santa Claus suit, to O.W., a truck driving brawler who pawns everything including her sewing machine to cover bets, Josephine knows that love isn’t easy. Go Love's muddy relationships finally twist together amidst the weirdness of a southern funeral in Lonoke, Arkansas, a place where housewives string cottonmouth water moccasins from tree limbs to tease out rain, or to make a man impotent for cheating. Anything at all's possible in such a place. Just as the African women shout out during the funeral, go love is the command the novel's inhabitants must finally live by, even when life offers up a truckload of reasons to do the contrary. Even if it kills us—go love.

What They're Saying About Go Love

"Michael Gills' vivid, headstrong characters brim with desire, blame, and—most of all—rich storytelling at its heartiest. Gills writes the saga of the Stepwells with such breadth and depth that their lives seem both historic and intimate. Go Love is a murderous, tender, swaggering tale that, in the end, is an unwavering argument in favor of love—the uncompromising variety—and Gills is absolutely convincing."
—Julianna Baggott, author of Girl Talk

"We already know Michael Gills is one of America's best short story writers, but with the publication of his first novel Gills now shows himself to be one of our best novelists as well. Worthy of comparison to Faulkner and O'Connor, this is a great novel by a great writer."
—Eric Miles Williamson, author of 14 Fictional Positions and Welcome to Oakland

"…incredibly complex…"
—Deseret News

"Go Love, a debut novel by Michael Gills, offers a fresh perspective on the struggle to love and to be worthy of love, the impossibility and the necessity of loving."
—PsychologyToday.com

SUSPECT: A Murder Mystery by Angel Berry

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by A.Berry (author): Pdf ebook

Description: A robbery gone wrong?

The murder of a jewelry store owner is committed under cover of darkness. Two of his assailants, residents of the Sanctuary, a nearby homeless shelter, are found laying dead beside him.

And on a crisp November day, a deaf, intellectually disabled young woman who saw the killer's face is convinced that she is being stalked by a murderer.

As the police investigate, the search for Jerry, a third accomplice on the run, turns up with no leads.

But Mary Ann Hernandez, the director of the Sanctuary, accuses Alphonso's son, Tommy, of having ties to the two men found murdered near his father, and when Tommy doesn't disclose all he knows about his father's death and then lies about his alibi, he becomes a prime suspect.

The question is: Who's the culprit?

Traveling in Scandinavia by Klaava Media (Klaava Media)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by Klaava (publisher): Chapters from our travel books that are Scandinavia related.

Description: Few regions of the world have been praised as frequently as North Europe in recent years. One day the news is all about the best work-life balance in the world (Denmark), the other day we hear about the best school system in the world (Finland), the happiest nation of the world (Norway), or the best country for women to live in (Sweden).

This book focuses on the northernmost countries in Scandinavia: Finland, Norway and Sweden. If you want to discover what the secret sauce of those nations is, this is a good place to start. We have selected chapters from travel guidebooks, cultural guides and even from a cookbook to show you some of the many tourist sights and cultural curiosities of the North. Authors Kim Anton, Erin Dahl, Ari Hakkarainen, Kari Ojala, Russell Snyder and Soile Varis have contributed sections from their books to this collection.

The countries are large and varying in geography: everything from the sea, archipelago, vast forests, mountains, fells, lakes, and fjords to marshlands establish the natural environment. Most people live in capital cities and regional centers, leaving the great outdoors wilderness for all of us to experience.

Each country has its own language and culture. Swedish, however, is the common language for these countries. Today, English is widely understood everywhere in the Nordic countries as the school system has been teaching foreign languages (often multiple) for decades. Cultural differences between Nordic nations are obvious, but from traveler’s point of view not dramatic. Cultural differences between Nordic and other European nations, however, can be surprisingly wide, but that’s where a guidebook can help.

Here is a taste of Scandinavia for you to explore at the comfort of your reading nook – perhaps before heading out to the North yourself. As the selection of writings show, there are plenty of destinations to see and things to do: city life, mountain biking, fishing in pristine rivers, camping, island hopping, road touring, Arctic adventures, or hiking in the wilderness. If something is missing, Finns will invent it (e.g. wife carrying competition), Swedes will sell it to the world (e.g. entire country available on Airbnb), and Norwegians will win the cross-country skiing world championship (again).

Description: For fans of Red Rising, The Atlantis Gene, and Lucifer's Hammer

Bored with life as a farm hand, Storm accepts a request made by a local astronomer to be a messenger boy. Little does he know his world will be blown apart when he reaches his destination in the capital. Intercepted then befriended by a strange giant of a man ensconced under the nation's government buildings, he is told the awful truth—the world has just months before it falls under the magnetic pull of the Dark Star, the invisible binary twin of the Sun.

Storm learns that a resulting pole shift is about to change the face of the planet. But he also learns the Dark Star does not mean the end of all life on Earth. The powerful elites know this too and have already set into action plans to further their own ends.

To survive the coming catastrophe, Storm, his family, and his friends must negotiate the increasingly brutal security forces as well as teams of assassins acting for the elites. Improbable as it seems, survival is possible, so long as they are ready to fight...

The elites make use of advanced technologies to hide the intruder from outer space until they are safe in their sanctuaries. They have created distractions and chaos to control the growing unrest: They have triggered long planned for global conflict and economic collapse, and they have prepared many prison camps. The world as Storm knew it will never be the same again, but he is already adapting and changing...

Viciously assaulted while on a film shoot in New Zealand, she flees her husband aided by Bill a young corporate attorney. Furious, her husband employs two mercenaries to pursue the pair through the wilds of the East coast. Unaware of the deadly nature of the chase, the two fugitives quickly form a bond that develops into a heated and desperate romance. While Bill finds himself embroiled in her battle, Yayoi must come to terms with her past or be consumed by it.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by A.Berry (author): PDF EBOOK

Description: Long pig was always better from the young..."

Chubby, nine year old Mongrel was smart — Isaac had told him so. He knew that he had been cursed since birth, and he knew that it was only because of Isaac that his mother had allowed him to survive inside her womb.

On the fateful day that his mother finally left him, surviving on the outside proved to be difficult as well...

"Any evil will lurk in the dark and jump on a small thing as prey."

...and as he sat there alone on his favorite fourth step and waited — waited for Isaac to return with his mother — he found that what came through the door was not Isaac.

What dragged him from his home was not Isaac, but everything that goes bump in the night, and Mongrel soon discovered that the bogeyman would never, ever hide beneath the bed.

Mongrel is a short tale from the novel Horror Classics

Cracking Up : A Novel by Joan Komlosy

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by joankomlosy (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: Jools Holland: "Entertaining and well-written".
Sir Ranulph Fiennes: "Joan's matter-of-fact lively style of writing, spiced with the mention of household names from the rock and pop world, is sure to entertain".

'Cracking Up' is loosely based on the real-life experiences of Joan Komlosy.

For Lily Francis, coming to terms with a broken marriage, children going their separate ways and the dole queue beckoning is hard enough. But when the landlords want the flat she's been renting for 25 years - the only stable thing in her life - the term 'midlife crisis' takes on a whole new meaning.

Now a reluctant 'born again singleton' Lily, an impoverished antique dealer and struggling freelance journalist begins to rebuild her life and attempts to start again. If only her once successful husband hadn't dragged out the divorce she would have been self-supportive and the family silver might not have ended up in Bermondsey market.

'Cracking Up' is humorous, touching and entertaining and will appeal to anyone male or female, who has had to start again from the bottom - older, alone and flat broke - there are many out there.

Description: "It's often said that we all have a novel in us. Or at least, a tabloid exposé. Who the hell has a piano concerto in them, and what's more, what kind of surgery is required to remove it without causing serious trauma to the patient? This is the story of the surgery and the trauma." Matthew Halligan is a washed-up journalist and jobbing musician. When contacted by a childhood music teacher who is now in prison, he tells how he got his first opus from brain to page to stage, while eking out an existence as a jazz pianist round the bazaars. A tale of sex'n'violins, tricky woodwind passages, prison choirs and preposterous conductors. Well, one preposterous conductor in particular, who makes such merry hell of the proceedings that thoughts turn murderous. . . Warning: if you have romantic notions about the elegance, charm and intelligence of musicians, pour yourself a stiff drink before proceeding. . . They usually do.

Description: "I highly recommend this novel and author to readers who love Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, and traditional Regency romances!" - Austenesque Reviews

A fun confection with a romantic spirit and droll English characters.

‘You forget yourself, your lordship. You have no rights to allow or disallow anything I may choose to do. You have, in fact, no claim over me whatsoever – a circumstance for which I thank the Lord on a daily basis! I am neither your ward nor your dependent, and I will not allow you to talk to me in that odiously overbearing fashion!'

High-spirited Artemisia Grantley, niece of the Duke of Wentworth, has never made any attempt to conform to the feminine ideal expected of a lady of quality, nor has she ever had the benefit of an unfavourable opinion formed against her. But when the Marquess of Chysm enters her life, it seems to her that his lordship is always at hand to witness her shortcomings and bring them to her attention, inciting her temper and leaving her feeling inexplicably flustered.

As she reluctantly embarks upon her first London Season, a scandalous family secret and a conspiracy that stretches all the way to Napoleonic France threaten to entangle her with the one person she could happily throttle.

Description: For Jacks Dowd, a college senior who feels ungrounded from his family and life in general, an alcohol and sex-infused weekend in Montréal sounds like a pretty good escape. His Spring Break binge takes a detour when he meets Benoit, an admiring drifter with startling green eyes. A hook-up turns into a day, two days, and then a full week in Benoit's hostel, making love and scarfing down take-out food. But at the end of the week, Benoit demands that Jacks make an impossible choice: stay with him forever, or go back to college and never see him again.

There's something dangerous about Benoit, but Jacks has fallen for him brutally. The night before Jacks is supposed to return to college, he finds Benoit in Mont Royal Park, where they first met, to try to work things out. Benoit springs on Jacks an unfathomable secret: he's a mythical creature, half man and half jungle panther. He traps Jacks in an abandoned cabin and performs an occult rite so they will be mated forever.

The Hunters: Monster Hunting 101 by Richard Bamberg (Verdandi Press)

This is an audiobook.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by RichardABamberg (author): This is the audio version of the first book in the urban fantasy series, The Hunters. I'm requesting listeners to review the book on Audible.com. This is a mature subject matter book, not for young teenagers.

Description: When Jesse's old girlfriend calls him requesting an immediate meeting late at night, he thinks of a lot of reasons she might have called. None of them are anywhere near the truth. Instead of a late night booty call, Gail brings him into a world he didn't know existed, ghouls, werewolves, and ghosts and they all seem to be after Jesse's blood. Gail wants Jesse to put a silver bullet in her heart to keep her from becoming the monster she hunts, but there's no way Jesse is going to kill the girl he once loved. He convinces her to let him restrain her for the full moon. Luckily, a local Adult Intimacies store has all the bondage gear he needs. Now he just has to fight off a pack of werewolves single-handedly while keeping her from ripping his own throat out. Sex, guns, and werewolves, what could go wrong?

Come See About Me by C. K. Kelly Martin (Amazon Digital Services)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by chronic (author): Looking for honest reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads or other platforms.

Description: Twenty-year-old Leah Fischer's been in a state of collapse since the moment police arrived on her Toronto doorstep to inform her that boyfriend Bastien was killed in a car accident. After flunking out of university and cutting herself off from nearly everyone she knows, Leah's saved by Bastien's aunt who offers her a rent-free place to stay in a nearby suburban town.

Initially Leah keeps to herself, with no energy for anyone or anything else, but it's not long before her nurturing neighbors begin to become fixtures in Leah's life and a much needed part-time job forces her to interact with other members of the community. And when Leah is faced with another earth-shattering event, her perspective on life begins to shift again. Soon Leah's falling into a casual sexual relationship with Irish actor Liam Kellehan, who has troubles of his own, even as she continues to yearn for her dead boyfriend. Clearly she's not the person she thought she was...and maybe Liam isn't either.

Praise for Come See About Me

"Her writing is very special, it’s real and raw and authentic, but her skill with telling a story that makes you feel all the things right along with the narrator is so, so, so much more pronounced with the freedom that comes along with writing for an adult audience. While I know the self-publishing route is a tough one, I hope that Come See About Me has some success so that we’ll maybe see more adult fiction from Martin—it’s just that wonderful."
~ Clear Eyes, Full Shelves

"All of Martin's books are deeply written, touching, sad and funny and a combination of all of this put together...This is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read."
~ Bookshipper

"Oh, how I love C. K. Kelly Martin for not shying away from the sexual needs someone feels even after losing their love...The beauty of a character like Leah is that, if you have someone like C. K. Kelly Martin writing you, you’re going to spring to life from the pages...Bits of reality, woven together with Martin’s sincerity and artfulness, form someone you really, truly care about."
~ Happy Owl Books

"There are many ways to grieve, endless ways actually. And I felt every ounce of Leah’s pain...This was an amazing read."
~ Lives and Breathes Books

"There's a very fragile balance of being on your own for the first time and learning that...you're not as shielded from pain as you think you are. It's that last part that will make this book appealing to both older teens who are mature enough to handle the intimacy aspect, and it's this very last part that will make this book appealing to adults, as well...Martin's book is the real deal and will appeal to those who like contemporary fiction, strong characters, emotionally powerful stories, and who enjoy their sex steamy."
~ Stacked
