Burglary Blues (Lexie Sarcone/Michael Riley Romantic Suspense Book 1), by Elisa Archer
Lexie Sarcone is just your average girl. She's a twenty-six year old, petite brunette with a feisty streak who carries a pair of handcuffs around since they coordinate so nicely with her badge and gun. Some men find that a turn-on. But not Lexie's ex-boyfriend. After he left her, citing her job as the problem, Lexie swore off dating. And working as a decoy for vice only solidified her resolve, but now that Officer Sarcone has transferred to burglary division, all bets are off.

Detective Michael Riley has a reputation for being a ladies' man. His chiseled features, gorgeous eyes, and sexy body have allowed him to get away with a lot of things. But underneath the good looks lies a competent investigator. The job is one of the few...
The Devil's Beating His Wife, by Siobhán Béabhar
If I could kill Baxter Bennett, I would. But he's already dead.

Ever since we were kids and my mama washed his family's dirty clothes, cooked their every meal, and consoled his finicky mother, I have hated how much power his white family held over mine. As a newly commissioned Army officer, he stood by and watched his brother and friends tie a noose around my brother's neck, string him up, and hang him until his legs stopped swaying.

He pledged to protect, honor, and cherish me; instead, when he returned from the War, he ended up stalking, terrorizing, and killing me when I did not return his affections. The decorated hero then turned the gun on himself and ended his life while he cradled my dead body. Through hi...
Taiwan Tales - One Country, Eight Stories: a Multicultural Perspective, by Katrina A. Brown
"...IN EVERY WAY AN OUTSTANDING COMPILATION." --Taipei Times

More than merely stepping through the streets and trails of a land, the narrated word allows one to learn about ideas, sense passions and glimpse dreams of a place and its people. Here are eight short stories about Taiwan: an island, a manufacturing powerhouse, a nation of Buddhism and Capitalism, a land straddling a geographical ring of fire as well as a political one, a country colored by both ancient traditions and high-tech modernity. Written by authors who have called Taiwan home, each tale offers an absorbing perspective on this unique country....
#Berlin45: The Final Days of Hitler's Third Reich (Hashtag Histories), by Philip Gibson
What if there had been social media during World War II?

Roosevelt and follows the thoughts and actions of the main participants through the capture of Vienna, the Battle of Seelow Heights, the liberation of the concentration camps, the Battle of Berlin, the death of Hitler and the eventual surrender of Reich forces....

But Beth doesn't understand just how different she really is.

One day, strange things start cropping up in her photos. Things that don't look human. Impossible things. Monstrosities.

Beth's search for Justine plunges her into a world she never knew existed, one filled with ancient and terrifying ...
