Canadian Jordan Haines is on vacation in the Caribbean. After the summer he’s had, a couple months of fun in the sun is just what the doctor ordered. What he didn’t count on was meeting a beautiful woman on a private beach – or falling hard.

Crown Princess Astrid of San Majoria seems to lead a charmed life.

Her sanctuary on her family’s beach is broken one day when a tired windsurfer takes refuge in her cove – and works his way into her heart.

But it’s just a summer fling, isn’t it? After all, Jordan will be returning to Canada before long, won’t he?

When pictures of the two of them, and what looks like an engagement ring, appear in the tabloids, they have to deal with fallout – and the beginnings of a real relationship. Secrets kept become hearts broken as they try to discover if Jordan really has the heart of a prince.

$3.99 (KindleUnlimited)

It’s been six years since a terrifying breed of seemingly unkillable creatures emerged from the darkness to topple the unprepared governments of the world, in the process knocking mankind down the food chain.

Survivors called it The Purge.

A few brave souls rose from the ashes of the old world to fight back, often against overwhelming odds. Led by indomitable heroes, they risked everything to achieve a final, stunning victory over the supernatural “ghouls” in The Battle of Houston.

Five years later, what remains of the ghouls have fled back into the shadows, and humanity now resides in isolated communities in relative peace. But human ambition and greed have also survived, and with no laws to stop those willing to pursue them, it’s every man for himself.

Keo, one of the unknown heroes of The Battle of Houston, has found serenity in a small town in Texas. But he will discover that a violent past is not so easily cast aside when a madman rises to dominate those around him, and in the process shatters Keo’s new life.

It’s a brave new world, but monsters still exist—and thrive. And where there are evil deeds, good people must rise to stem the tide…on the Road to Babylon.

Back Side of a Hurricane by Robert Schwab Back Side of a Hurricane by Robert Schwab

$2.99

Tucker Nash is a man in motion, unencumbered by the need for reflection or deep thought, whose only personal and professional successes in life are due to his marriage to Bellamy Ducharme. His personal mantra is, “It’s a great day to make money.” In summer, 1989, poised to earn a promotion to the highest level in his father-in-law’s company in Wilmington, Delaware, Tucker learns from Bellamy’s sister that Bellamy, who is suffering from depression, is contemplating divorce. Having lost his mother six months earlier, and his father in the Vietnam war, Tucker fears isolation, loss of his professional identity and status, and cannot conceive of life without his wife and children. He enters counseling with Bellamy at the urging of her psychiatrist.

During counseling, Tucker discovers a lost memory of perhaps the only pleasant time he ever spent with his father, on a fishing trip somewhere in coastal South Carolina. The psychiatrist recommends that Tucker and Bellamy take a weekend away together to try to locate the site. The timing conflicts with Tucker’s need to increase his sales in advance of the upcoming company annual meeting, where promotions are announced.

Bellamy’s sister becomes critically ill on the eve of the trip, and Tucker goes alone, with Bellamy’s blessing. Impatient (as always) to succeed quickly, Tucker abandons plans and ignores advice, resulting in car trouble that strands him in rural South Carolina, short of his destination. He meets Earl Pitney, a master mechanic, a man scarred by his childhood, personal tragedy, and the Vietnam War, whose only ambitions are to be a great mechanic and to enjoy a quiet, peaceful life. Earl’s guiding principle is to sit still when trouble arrives, that “there is a back side to a hurricane where the wind blows in the opposite direction.” Tucker’s quest to find the cabin on Cape Leatherneck Island threatens Earl’s serenity, because Earl has been haunted by the island’s secret for many years.

As Hurricane Hugo bears down on South Carolina, Tucker struggles to find his father’s memory while Earl struggles to solve the mystery of Tucker’s car. If Earl gets his way, Tucker may lose his family and his career. If Tucker gets his way, Earl may lose the peaceful life he has worked so hard to build. If Hugo gets its way, everyone may lose.
