When opposites attract...

The last thing Jenna Landry wants is to fall in love. The former rock musician is getting ready to start a new job and a new life in L.A., and she's only back in her hometown for the summer. Nothing could tempt her to stay any longer than that...not even the sexy doctor next door.

Michael Stone has a reputation for being as cold as ice. So what is it about his free-spirited neighbor that sets him on fire? The strait-laced M.D. has his hands full with his career and his teenage daughter, and even if he were looking for a relationship, he knows Jenna is all wrong for him.

So why does being with her feel so right?

A Dead Red Oleander (The Lalla Bains mystery series), by RP Dahlke. (Still on sale?)

This exciting mystery finds Lalla Bains shackled to a truck in the middle of a cotton field. Can she unravel her own mystery?

"This is an enjoyable read with great characters and interesting plot. Good combination of romance and mystery splashed with humor throughout. " -- Amazon reviewer

3rd in the Lalla Bains mystery series:

"Janet Evanovich meets aero-ag pilots." Emily Anderson for The Kindle Book Review

5 stars from Fiction reviews:
"The main protagonists and all the supporting characters, have larger than life
personalities, which lend themselves to some great dialogue exchanges and some
pretty strange and esoteric action scenes. In preparation for the couple's
forthcoming nuptuals, Lalla's relatives have arrived in California, from Texas
and now the fun really starts!!"

When a late in the season emergency forces Lalla Bains to accept a greenhorn ag pilot for her dad's cropdusting business, she sighs in relief . After all, he comes highly recommended, his physical is spotless, and with a name like Dewey Treat, what could possibly go wrong?
Then her quirky relatives arrive from Texas and things go south in a hurry: Dewey Treat drops dead, his tearful widow claims he was murdered, clobbers Sherriff Caleb Stone with his own gun, and makes a run for it. Lalla, convinced the widow is innocent, sets out to prove it--against the express wishes of fiancé Caleb Stone.
Feds, local law, suspicious ag-pilots, nutso relatives, and her daddy's new sidekick, Bruce the goat, make life a living hell for Lalla. Will her nosey nature solve the crime and save the day? Or put them all in mortal danger?

266 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 80 reviews.

Mad Dog and Englishman: A Mad Dog & Englishman Mystery #1 (Mad Dog & Englishman Series), by J M Hayes. (Still on sale?)

This police procedural is a whodunnit set in a small-town Kansas. Get this funny mystery on sale today!

"I just loved this book. Based in small town Kansas, the author creates a fantastic sense of place. He writes with great humour, causing me to laugh out loud on more than one occasion. The book is packed with interesting and very realistic, although sometimes odd, characters for whom things never quite go as they intend. The story itself really rips along and keeps you engrossed right to the end." -- Amazon reviewer

"Summer in Benteen, County, Kansas, is a season possessed of all the gentle subtlety of an act of war. Winter, of course, is no better, but remembrance of its frosts and blizzards and winds that begin to suck away your life before you walk a dozen steps has grown faint by the early hours of a Sunday morning in late June.”

While some try to sleep, and some like Sheriff English and his ex-wife try sex, the Reverend Peter Simms takes an early walk in the park and encounters someone counting coup. When the Sheriff’s part-Cheyenne brother, Mad Dog, arrives to meditate, he finds the Reverend’s mutilated corpse.

Mad Dog is the obvious suspect and begins to hang out in the town jail while Sheriff English widens his net and picks up not only several suspicious characters, but an increasingly dark history for the Simms family. The case grows stormier. Soon, so does the weather. As a tornado gathers to hurl its fury on the hapless town, the fury of the killer rises to meet it."

190 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 18 reviews.

Big Dragons Don't Cry (A Dragon's Guide to Destiny), by C. M. Barrett. (Still on sale?)

In a metaphysical world, dragons, tree huggers and kittens make this a great fantasy. Get it on sale today!

"Big Dragons Don't Cry is a deeply moving portrayal of man's destructive attitude towards animals and nature which challenges our established notions of dealing with such issues. The author's greatest feat is to deliver this hard-hitting message without ever `preaching' to her reader. Instead, the author creates wonderful characters such as the water dragon Druid and the cat Tara, who form bonds of companionship that override prejudices and illuminate this story." -- Amazon reviewer

Book 1 of A Dragon's Guide to Destiny. Book 2: Dance with Clouds. Book 3: House of the Moon.

A dragon with low self-esteem, a kitten with attitude, a woman who feels too much, and a man who feels too little collide in "a great fantasy read, with all the things we love." (Amazon reviewer)

Morale in the country of Oasis has never been worse. The Earthers, a tree-hugging sect, beg forgiveness for their crimes against twigs and weeds. The Godlies preach penitence and suffering and inspire their followers into submission by threatening them with an afterlife spent being chased by a fire-breathing dragon.

All Oasans fear the dragon in the swamp at the country's edge, and they don't know that he fears them. Druid, a water dragon who puts out fires, steams up when he learns that a cunning opportunist intends to exploit dragonphobia and have the dragon killed so that he can level the swamp for suburban housing.

Tara, a kitten with charisma, is trying to bring humans back into balance. She needs to enlist Serazina, a young human woman who hides her ability to read emotions in order to avoid imprisonment in the Ward for the Chronically Crazy. Serazina's troubles grow when Phileas, Guardian of Oasis, chooses her to be the mother of the heir he so badly needs. Before he can consider fatherhood, he needs to stem the mysterious rumors that he's soft on dragons.

Somehow these four must overcome communication difficulties, mutual mistrust, and delusions of human superiority to save the country. Otherwise, even though Druid doesn't breathe fire, Oasis will be toast.

Better Than Ever, Again, by Mitch Davies. (Still on sale?)

Ben gets a dream job on a yacht in the South Pacific. This sea adventure is on sale today!

"The book is a sailing person's dream....a lot of seafaring terms and fun details for folks who enjoy being on board a ship/boat. The beautiful landscape of Tahiti was also well described, along with some mystery and, of course, romance. The mystery was trying to determine what the real motive of the ship's owner was. He wasn't around too often and didn't really check on the crew." -- Amazon reviewer

Who hasn't dreamt of sailing in the South Pacific as the owner of a sleek, gleaming yacht? Ben Beck finds that dream job as a crew member sailing on just such a ship.

With a history of working 'too good to be true' opportunities, he still can't believe his luck. Sailing excursions in Tahiti for a year then sell the yacht and get a nice chunk of the proceeds.

The ad said, "No Sailing Experience Necessary" and he had the qualifications.

His fellow group members include Carl, the millionaire boss, Duane, a hard-to-please captain, Purrette, a serious beauty and Rudy, a potential danger.

After a confusing start of mis-information, Ben isn't sure of exactly what he's gotten himself into. How many partners does he have? Where exactly are they going?

And then there's Tahiti.

Can they sail the southern seas without any mishaps? When Ben finds out what's really going on, can he save the dream?
