Amora by Grant J. Hallstrom

“If she prefers to lie in a tomb instead of my bed, I cannot stop her,” the stern patrician declared.

Explore the path to redemption, forgiveness and healing as we witness the characters in Grant Hallstrom’s novel, Amora, struggle with their pains of loss and betrayal, the burden of guilt, and the drive for revenge.

This engaging historic epic is based on the true story of the noblewoman who inspired Justin Martyr’s petition to the Roman Senate, and is a story of sacrifice, a sweeping action-adventure and a moving examination of spirituality and faith.

Executive reviews:

“This is a powerful story that will, unquestionably, resonate with people of faith, but has enough universal appeal to find a home with crossover readers as well.”

“The core concept of the novel feels like Christian forgiveness on a collision course with revenge.”

“The ideas of vengeance and forgiveness as two sides of a coin is a really compelling underlying motif for this novel.”

“I loved the inexorable pull of vengeance and betrayal pulling on all the characters. Knowing that the merciless hand of fate is moving towards Leo, creates the kind of delicious tension that drives stories in this genre.”

“The novel does a great job zooming out for the big picture but also being able to really focus in on intimate human details and moments with these characters.”

“The blending of several distinct and quite separate storylines come together very well and provide an emotionally satisfying end to the book.”

The Day I Disappeared by Brandi Reeds

A terrifying crime reunites a mother and daughter in a novel of psychological suspense by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Trespassing.

Three months after four-year-old Holly Gebhardt was kidnapped, she was inexplicably returned to the same park from which she’d vanished…with no memory of the ordeal.

The troubling doubts about her involvement shattered the family, forever driving a wedge between mother and daughter.

Twenty years later, another girl goes missing under eerily similar circumstances. It’s just the latest in a series of kidnappings that Detective Jason Guidry thinks Holly can help solve. Though Holly has tried to move on with her life, a young girl’s life hangs in the balance. All she has to do is try to remember…

With her memory still mostly blank, Holly is missing vital pieces of the puzzle, and she believes her mother can put them in place. In desperation and fear, Holly and her mother come together again. But in a chilling rush toward the past, Cecily still has secrets she’s yet to share with her daughter. Should she dare to breathe a word, she could lose Holly all over again.

Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers a smart and sexy contemporary romance about a smoking-hot professional football player and the small-town girl he can’t resist.

We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.

My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected: he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes. Somehow we end up at his penthouse. I blame the gin and tonic.

The next day I learn he’s Jack Hawke—bad-boy professional quarterback with a murky past. The NDA he has me sign should be a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I sign it Juliet Capulet, so goodbye, famous football player with abs of steel, and good luck tracking down this small-town librarian.

But Jack keeps showing up in places I least expect him. Just when I’m sure he’s gone, he waltzes into my community theater and wins the part of Romeo to my Juliet. How’s a plain, mostly innocent girl like me supposed to resist a man like him?

Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

They say never mix business with pleasure. But when Beatrice and Ford aren't arguing, they're kissing.

Sometimes temptation proves too strong to resist…even if the cost is a heart.
