A Smudge of Gray by Jonathan Sturak
Detective Brian Boise is about to embark on the biggest case of his career. After being thrust into law enforcement on the footsteps of his father, Detective Boise finds himself on the trail of a murder suspect he could never have imagined, the mysterious businessman, Trevor Malloy. Trevor is an irresistible hitman with everything going for him, while Detective Boise is a cutthroat detective going against the grain. These two men, both breadwinners and keystones of their families, play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. They are a contrast of each other and as their game progresses, their worlds contort and the line between black and white blurs.





















At age 19, Linda discovers that she and her stunning green eyes are not cut out for the working world. But, a New York City girl still needs cash. To get it, Linda dons her old Catholic school-girl uniform to fleece Times Square tourists for their travel money. 

Linda's scams really begins when she stumbles upon a smooth-talking character named Malik who offers the green-eyed grifter the opportunity of a lifetime. Malik is a part of a mob of con-artists. Together, Malik and the con mob help hone Linda's skill to help them commit the biggest con the crew has ever pulled. Their target? A billionaire's gambling addicted son and the boy's trust fund. But in Linda's first real con, this trust fund baby may not be the only mark.

Things go bad pretty fast. Linda soon forgets her role in the con and begins to fight for her survival. 

Fool's Eye is full of twists and turns, tricks and cons that will leave you questioning reality...and believing the con.





















When playing by the rules means stepping over the line…

Sometimes starting over means trying out assault and battery, especially when the object d’ violence is a cheating husband caught in the act. Restraining orders aside, safety comes in numbers and having certain … standards.

For Jessamine chaos and capitulation are facts of life. Giving up dreams to service her husband’s ambitions and enabling the same blind submission in her own daughter ends abruptly, leaving her rootless, homeless and destitute.

For some people, it is the kindness of strangers who make the difference but for Jes it is the unlikely alliance of the mother-in-law-from-hell, a devastatingly handsome basketball coach and a phalanx of determined team members who convince a woman of a certain age that beginning again doesn’t mean giving up or giving in.

The only problem is … there’s that pesky 90 day rule.





















After living on the streets of New York City for over a decade, Logan Ellis admits her perceptions might be a little skewed. But twisted or not, there’s a satisfying irony in watching a well dressed vampire stand in the middle of a ghetto alley, windblown trash scraping small circles near his feet. What she finds even more intriguing, is waiting for him to decide whether or not he’s going to kill her.

Kerestyan Nelek hasn’t quite made up his mind. As the Lord of New York, he can’t allow a homeless drug addict, whose memories are packed with knowledge of vampiric existence, to run free in his city. It’s not the first time he’s been in this situation with a human, it’s just the first time in thousands of years he’s come face to face with one who doesn’t seem to care. And that’s what makes the decision so damn difficult.

What horrors would you have to witness before you went numb? How many years would it take for you to feel that way? What would it take to make you care again?

Logan’s answers are simple: the worst humanity has to offer, almost thirty…and something she never expected.





















For them, nothing is off limits, even their husbands. During a drunken night out four married friends confess their desire to share their husbands with one another, and then they hire two convicted felons to help turn their fantasy into reality.

They forgot one important detail: even the most thought out plans is only as foolproof as the people behind them.

Martin Luther King Jr.: Brother Martin Has A Dream by Willard Sterne Randall & Nancy Nahra
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is today a mythic figure. But who was he really? Here, in this brief book, is the story of the man whose powerful words, moral courage, and organizational genius inspired America’s civil rights movement.





















Dr. Anna McIntyre’s life was going along just fine until someone else started living it. Her patient died because of an identity mix-up; her medical career is in jeopardy because of forged prescriptions; and her credit is in ruins. She thought things couldn’t get worse, but that was before she opened the envelope and saw a positive HIV test with her name on it.
Her allies are two men who are also competing for her affection. Dr. Nick Valentine is a cynic who carries a load of guilt. Attorney Ross Donovan is a recovering alcoholic. The deeper Anna digs to discover who’s behind the identity thefts the higher the stakes. Finally, when her life is on the line, Anna finds that her determination to clear her name might have been a prescription for trouble.














In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter.

When Vanessa dies of the flu, Walt is devastated. But she isn't the last. The virus quickly kills billions, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. As Raymond and Mia hole up in an abandoned mansion, where they learn to function without electricity, running water, or neighbors, Walt begins an existential walk to LA, where Vanessa had planned to move when she left him. He expects to die along the way.

Months later, a massive vessel appears above Santa Monica Bay. Walt is attacked by a crablike monstrosity in a mountain stream. The virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job--and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.

Erotic. Exotic.

Michelle is that young, French artist who faces all she cannot understand or resist in the form of a sexy millionaire, Mickey. He interrupts her prayers in a church at the end of one of those lost, dark alleys. He touches her gently on the shoulder, and she turns to look him in the eyes and sees the brick wall of death.

Dan and D’arcy Dugan, on the other hand, are the perfect corporate couple. Only he wants her to be the pillar supporting his career and she wants her past, and the “love of her life” back. Who wins? The one who stays alive.
Jean Bouchard saves Michelle by making her a class-act corporate wife, and then finds that she has not only returned to her Brazilian lover, but has also added his corporate rival from America to her romantic adventures. Then their world explodes.

Where is Michelle destined? Hell. Mickey designs the journey, and Jeanne never sees her again. Is there any hope for such minds and emotions in this dark, erotic thriller? Read it when you are lonely and wonder what else there is out there.






















India: 1946. Blessing Ashish murmured. Such a name for a man cursed by a million gods For forty-eight years, his family toiled as slaves in the fields of the high-caste Lal family, and all because of one small debt. Ashish and his family knew nothing of the hatred for the British seething around them, nor of the struggle for independence that simmered throughout India. At fifty-four, Ashish was old and worn out. His wife had died long before how many years, he had no idea. Even though he had four sons to work beside him in the fields, every day was a struggle to survive. Sometimes his only daughter worked, too, but she also cooked and cleaned and kept the clothes in repair. His wife had named the girl Shridula Blessings. Perhaps the name will bring you more fortune than it brought me, Ashish told his daughter. His words proved to be prophetic in ways he could never have imagined. And when the flames of revolt brought independence to India, they seared change into the families of Ashish and Lal.

Results Not Typical by Catherine Ryan Howard


Through their Ultimate Weight Loss Diet Solution Zone System, Slimmit International Global Incorporated claim they're making the world a more attractive place one chubby at a time. Their slogans "Where You're Fat and We Know It!" and "Where the Fat IS Your Fault!" are recognised around the globe, their share price is as high as their energy levels and the counter in the lobby says 5,000,000 slimmed.

But today the theft of their latest revolutionary product, Lipid Loser, will threaten to expose the real secret behind Slimmit's success...

Aaron, the hunky Director of Security, must find the Lipid Loser or face losing his job. Marianne, head of Slimming Operations, offers to help him, but what she reallywants to find is the secret prototype she's been working on, the Much, Much More Muffin. Meanwhile Slimmit founder and CEO Nicola is struggling to stay conscious in the magic underwear she needs to hide her newly acquired muffin top. Her daughter Emmy--overweight and so deemed "unacceptably beyond corporate Appearance Policy parametres"--is pushing paper in Slimmit's basement and dreaming of a skinny life, one she doubts attending Fat Club meetings is going to bring her.

And so the race is on to find the Lipid Loser and save Slimmit from certain disaster. If their secrets get out, their competitors will put them out of business. If the government finds out, they'll all go to jail. And if their clients find out... Well, as Slimmit's Slimming Specialists know all too well, there's only one thing worse than a hungry, sugar-crazed, carb addict--and that's an angry one.

Can the secret behind Slimmit's success survive the day, or will their long-suffering slimmers finally discover the truth?
