Tess – Valkyrie Awakening by Andres Mann

Valkyrie-Awakening
This book combines two previously published novels: Tess Awakening and Tess Valkyrie. Since the second novel is a sequel, the combination provides the full story of Tess’s confrontations with the evil Amir.
A fast paced action novel set during the second Gulf War in Iraqi, three remarkable people are caught in a web of obsession and deceit. Tess is a military helicopter pilot; beautiful, aggressive and relentless. She gradually awakens as real woman due to the love of two men. Jake is a brilliant CIA operative that saves her from committing a mistake that could affect her career. Amir is a wealthy, sophisticated but dissolute Iraqi general who initially captures Tess during a battle and becomes obsessed with her. Tess must fulfill a promise that involves taking something from Amir. Tess and Jake attempt to go after him in Istanbul, Paris and London. Amir persuades her to spend time with him in France and England in exchange for what she is seeking. Here she meets Fadime, his alluring and decadent sister. In the end, Amir deceives Tess. She returns to Iraq, flying dangerous missions and rescuing wounded soldiers. An unforeseen event changes everything.
Tess and Amir square off in an epic struggle to define their destinies. Aided by Jake, Tess’s friend and co-pilot Carmen and their colleagues, Tess must overcome Amir’s vicious attacks motivated by his continuing obsession with her. They repeatedly clash in a succession of encounters taking place in Baghdad, Amman, Istanbul, Sorrento and New York. Carmen finally meets her soul mate in Nicola, who helps her overcome the traumas of her youth and becomes a valuable member of their team. The two women respond to their challenges by drawing on their skills as fierce warriors, battling the evil Amir, who not only hurt Tess but plans to take over the Iraqi government. Their struggle leads to a series of violent and bloody battles in the air and on the ground. A heartbreaking loss at the end is redeemed by a final poignant resolution.

These days I spend most of my time freelancing – being my own boss! But it wasn’t so long ago that I was a not-so-mild-mannered admin assistant like my heroine Laila. I always thought office life would be so much more interesting if it involved a little less paper work and a little more sex on desks…. so that’s the story I decided to write.

No Limit by L.P. Dover


Book Description

Murder. Lies. Betrayal.

I deal with those things every day. My name is Jason Avery, one of the best undercover agents in the country. I have yet to fail on a mission, which is why I’ve been sent to Vegas. Countless women have been abducted, tortured, only to show up dead in the middle of the night. It’s my job to find out which sick f*** is responsible. Unfortunately, every lead sends me to a dead end; at least, until Aylee McFadden shows up at my door.

Aylee is a stubborn, headstrong FBI agent and also one of the sexiest women I’ve ever seen with a gun. In joining me, it gives us the leverage we need to get on the inside. She fights me at every turn, but soon realizes there’s more to me than tattoos and a dirty mouth. I can’t get enough of her. Now that we’re in the game, we’re one step closer to solving the crime. However, gambling with money isn’t what the big boys want. They want the one thing I’m not willing to give.

It’s a no limit game, and if I back down I lose everything. I will lose her.

Teaching Tori by Annie Rehmann

Resized-RGB-Teaching-ToriTori has put up with Gerard’s bullying for so long, she is surprised when Tom, a visiting adviser to her school, turns into an ally she doesn’t really want. Fiercely independent and wary of people (except for children, of course), she is perfectly capable of dealing with Gerard by herself.
Despite her efforts to keep Tom at an arm’s length, he manages to gain her trust, and a tender relationship starts to form. A future with Tom looks certain until a misunderstanding leads Tori to pull away from him. When she recognises her mistake, it is too late to win him back.
The breakup affects her greatly, down to the one constant she could always fall back on in times of crisis: her love of teaching. Tori fails to meet her own high expectations of an inspiring teacher which leads her onto a downward spiral of feelings of inadequacy and guilt.
After weeks of misery, Tori takes to the hills of Central Otago to clear her head. High up in the tussock country she loves so much, she realises that it is time to move on and let go of the past.
The decision comes as a relief, but a sudden weather change gives Tori little time to dwell on it.
Will Tori make it home safely to put her decisions into action? And will Tom ever find out what happened to her?

Annie has always had a love of language, especially writing. At school, she thrived on the challenge of expressing herself with clarity not only in her native German, but also in other languages. For a while, Annie aspired to be a journalist one day, but she decided that she wasn’t thick-skinned enough and instead trained as a primary teacher.
Annie started to write her own fiction, in English, a few years ago, resulting in her first novel “Teaching Tori”.
When Annie isn’t teaching, reading or writing, she spends time with Ralph and teenage daughter June on their off-grid solar powered house project. She loves tramping in the South Island with Ralph, June and her two dogs Freddie and Pepper.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book started with a scene at the start – Tori is seeking refuge in the toilets after a verbal attack by her principal, and Tom, a visiting adviser to her school happens to see her. The characters and storyline grew from there. I wanted to write a book that I would love to read. It had to be compelling, and it had to move the reader.
I also wanted to give an insight into life as a teacher in New Zealand, and to share some of the wonderful scenery of the South Island.

I have gleaned many ideas and settings for my stories by traveling to well known cities in Europe, and also through the small villages, each with their own special story, which have enabled me to create believable and sympathetic characters.
Currently I teach English to Muslim immigrants from Iraq. Both of these experiences were so enlightening, giving me an insight into the spirit and courage these people, whom I admire tremendously and respect, portray in their everyday lives and their story is so compelling I will be writing a novel about their lives

30 Below by Wendy Stenzel Oleston

30-Below-Book-Final-REVISED-Cover-4-draftSex. Faith Quinn didn’t have much experience in that department, at least not until she met Lucas. But then again, a lot of things changed when he stepped into the picture. They fell in love the moment their eyes met and as wonderful as it felt, it also set in motion a chain of events that would ultimately change the quality of their lives forever. Honesty, trust and stress-free living become nearly impossible to find as this couple willingly steps outside God’s design for sex and marriage. This leaves them asking the question: what would things have been like had they followed the wise design of their loving Father from the beginning?

30 Below is the first in a series called “Degrees of Discernment” which follows Faith and Lucas through other life issues that cause their moral temperature to rise and fall.

I wanted to write a book with steamy yet respectful sex between a couple. I also wanted to show the contrast between jumping into a relationship without knowing a person and taking your time to let a relationship build naturally. In addition, I wanted to bring awareness to mental illness and how people who are afflicted can live perfectly normal lives and deserve love and respect just like anyone else.

A Date with Fate by Tracy Ellen

Book Description
Welcome to the world of Anabel Axelrod!

Hold on to your seat for the beginning of a fun ride! This is not your traditional romance wrapped up in a nice box and tied with a HEA pretty bow. A Date with Fate is the debut novel by Tracy Ellen, and the first volume in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series. Experience action, sex, wit, romance, mystery, mayhem, friends, family, flashbacks, fantasies, much laughter, and an “OMG!” cliffhanger–all in one roller-coaster ride of a wild weekend!

Smart and sexy bookstore owner Anabel Axelrod is happily satisfied with the routine of her life. She enjoys her work, the occasional company of good friends and family, and casual dates with men that are willing to follow her ironclad rules on dating.

Not too tall, deliciously dark, and definitely not handsome, the mysterious Luke Drake is a new man in town. When they meet, Anabel realizes Luke is the same man that she saw briefly in her bookstore months ago. They had never actually spoken, but sparks flew and worlds collided when their eyes clashed across the room that day.

It soon becomes apparent Luke has set his sights on Anabel, but he is no follower of rules and control is his middle name. Falling crazy in lust and sharing her darkest desires with an experienced man like Luke was definitely not in Anabel’s plans. She loves being single and will allow no man to control her, but Luke has persuasive ideas of his own.

But Anabel’s intense desire for Luke Drake is not her only concern. The slutty wife of a friend has gone missing, an employee at her store is attacked by an abusive ex, and the man who broke her heart years ago returns to town. Anabel’s orderly life dissolves into chaos. In A Date with Fate, the question remains–will the sassy, blonde bookseller follow her own rules to stay single, or will she understand that life is never simple and a certain mesmerizing complication may be worth the risk, even if it kills her?

The next two books in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series, Courted by Karma and In Love by Design, are available for purchase at all major booksellers. Adieu to Destiny is available for preorder and will be released in November 2014.

*This series is meant for the entertainment of an adult, mature audience. Please do not buy/read my books if scenes containing strong sexual situations, moderate violence, and explicit language offend you.
