Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
Borrowing Alex, by Cindy Procter-King
She'll return him eventually. Or maybe not.

Nikki St. James wants to get married more than anything. But what's she to do when her fiancé spends his days sucking up to her rich father instead of helping with the simple task of, oh, setting a date? Why...fake a fling with the best man, of course!

Nikki is the first to admit that ambushing Alex Hart and whisking him off to secluded Lake Eden is a tad desperate. But maybe pretending she's hot for the handsome history professor will kick-start the attention of her future groom. Besides, a sojourn at a lakeside cabin is exactly what uptight Alex needs. Not that Nikki cares what he needs or how sexy he is....

Alex is not on-board with Nikki's plan. Yeah...

Millionaire hotelier Cairo Kane has dealt with his fair share of tropical storms on the Caribbean island of Jamaica. Not one to hide from tumultuous weather, he would rather attack it, head on.

The Ghosts of Bayou Potomac, by Louis Tridico
President Beau Bergeron’s rookie year in office is turning out to be more than he bargained for. An aggressive Chinese admiral is pushing for a big naval showdown with the U.S. fleet in the South China Sea. And if that’s not enough to occupy Beau’s time, the sudden appearance of the ghosts of past presidents is about to push him over the edge. While they dole out advice, drink his beer, play practical jokes and ogle the first lady, Beau tries to figure out if his predecessors are helping him or pushing the country closer to war. His crazy college buddies aren’t helping, either, as they hatch a plan for a little bayou-style ghost busting – if they can get a voodoo priestess and a lucky rooster past the Secret Service. Can America s...

The Last Stoic, by Morgan Wade
"Morgan has written a book that is highly original and beautifully executed. The balance between the Roman world and the modern world is maintained with skill and adroitness, and the narrative is deftly woven through both of these time periods, never faltering or losing momentum.

The Last Stoic is a fascinating, parallel look at two societies who are not, as it turns out, as different or distinct as one might think."

- Helen Humphreys

** Long-listed for the 2012 ReLit Award for Fiction.**

The Last Stoic is a story of appetite and fear, both modern and ancient. Half of the story's narrative occurs in the time and place of the ancient Roman Empire; the other half occurs in the present-day United Sta...
