If you think the FIRST THREE PARAGRAPHS you peek at of this book are shocking - well, it's just the tip (oh, yeah!!) of "Numb".

Right between the eyes and right between the thighs, "Numb" grabs at ya' deep inside.

Action-packed from start to finish with a finale that will leave you gasping.

The Dancing Boy (English Edition)
The army had no use for Tom Gillet after he'd lost a foot in Afghanistan. If it hadn't been for a young Afghan kid called Shafiq, he would have lost his life. With his world turned upside down, and on the verge of PTSD, Gillet's family life crumbles. From an ex- army pal he discovers that Shafiq has been sold into sexual slavery to a Taliban warlord as a dancing boy. Grabbing the opportunity to start his own personal war, Gillet returns to Afghanistan to search for the boy. Betrayed by those he thought allies, a dramatic change of events take place when he receives news in Afghanistan that his son has been kidnapped in the UK by Al Qaeda and is to be used as part of a plan to blackmail him into disgracing the Americans present in Afghanistan. As he begins his search for his son, Gillet uncovers not only the extent of child sexual slavery present in Afghanistan and the UK, but Islam's plans to march into world domination.

Sangre (Daughters Of The Rose Moon)

“Valeria, he told me he loves me” She gave a proud smile in acknowledging that miracle “We made love” Blissfully recalling those moments of magic “I left him sleeping in bed and went into the bathroom” Visibly showing Valeria the bane of despair, she pulled up her pink cotton tee shirt, “Then this, Valeria”.

Having to see Sangre’s flesh for what it is, Valeria placed hand over mouth, “Does he know?”

Sangre hated to admit the truth to anyone, but had to tell everything to Valeria, “When the sun rises” Inhaling the air, as if courage were in the wind, “He will”.

Valeria knew Sangre better than anyone. She’d seen the tears and fears of this young woman in all its’ vividness. Event of this night was the last thing she ever wanted Sangre to have to deal with, “My heart is with you, dearest one” Placing Sangre’s smooth hand in her wrinkled one, “Get some sleep and things will be as they should be in the morning”.

“I just wanted….” Sangre looked downward in a pause and said a trio of words she never thought would come from her lips, “…To taste life”.

“And, you have, sweet Sangre” Valeria stood up and lifted Sangre upward also. She softly spoke to her, “Rest your eyes and your mind”.

“You are right, Valeria. Everything will be as it should” Sangre hugged her and rested head on Valeria’s shoulder, “I love you”.

“I love you, Sangre” Returning that hug and letting her go gently, Valeria traced both thumbs along those tear stained cheeks.

Sangre nodded and retreated upstairs to her bedroom for rest and a smidgen of solace.

Wishing to wash away the fiasco under a shower head, Sangre turned the silver knob to release a stream of warm water.

Closing her eyes as that liquid splashed against skin, she thought about Brian. His kisses, kindness and smile gave Sangre pause in her decision to leave him sleeping.

Wondering whether things could ever be normal between her and any man, suddenly was answered in a most unusual way.

Placing her hands forward against the white shower tiles, she began to second guess herself.

Holding head down and slowly opening eyes, Sangre’s choice was crystallized, as a stream of crimson color swirled down the shower drain…end of excerpt

**************

Brian fell in love with a dream.

Yet, this dream was a nightmare, for this woman was not what she seemed.

Her name was “Sangre”.

Confessions of a Predatory Lender -- KOSTENLOS bis Mittwoch -- Frohe Weihnachten!

Meet Christy. She's all about Palouse. She was born in the town of Palouse, in the Palouse region of Washington State. Her family name is Palus, and her father is a descendant of the Palouse tribe. Watered down to a few drops. Still, it's something she is proud of. If someone had told her that she will become a predatory lender, betray her best friend, fall in love with a thief, and help her bosses bust up the bank she works for, she would have laughed out loud. This is the summer of 2006, and everyone knows you can make a killing in mortgage lending. Christy and her BFF Megan moved to the big city of Seattle to do just that. While Megan is already dreaming of hot cars and designer clothes, "good girl" Christy's ambitions are more modest. At first!

Here's a compelling book and gift for nonfiction readers. It's a true story about the training and eventual practice of a physician. That was a lot easier for her than what was going on in her home.

Joyce DeBacco meint:
If you don't mind American English spoken by a backwoods country gal in the early part of the 20th century, So Wonderful as Want is women's fiction with romance.

The story centers around a young woman whose childhood dream of marrying well seems doomed until she meets an ambitious land developer who's interested in more than just her Southwest Florida riverfront land. Her dream within reach, she now must choose between the man who can make that dream come true, or the man who's been there for every joy, every sorrow in her life. Sadly, she chooses the dream. Years later, she's had it up to her jeweled earlobes with the grand life. Then the two men who love her decide to enter local politics, and she has another choice to make. Will she choose the candidate who wants to further develop the sun-kissed coast, or jeopardize her marriage by supporting the one who wants to preserve it for future generations?

So Wonderful as Want E-book or paperback.

"Joyce writes with such feeling and her knowledge of the south and the era is evident in her words. My emotions ranged from laughter to sorrow to frustration and even anger as I followed Dinah's journey over the course of 20 years. There is never a dull moment and I would be happy to read more. I would like to know what happens to Dinah over the next 20 years. I feel she is just getting started. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a genuine taste of life and adventure."

Stanley's Life

Stanley is living two different lives. In one life he is handsome, rich, famous and about to marry the girl of his dreams. In the other life Stan is broke, insecure and struggling to survive. Can one man really live two separate lives? You are about to find out!

Welcome to Stanley’s Life.

~

A romantic black comedy by Tony Passarelli

------------------------------------------

Review from amazon.com:

Stanley's Life is a short story about a man who has lost control of his life in reality, but has created a successful life in an online fantasy world. There he is rich, successful, funny, witty, charming and romantic--all the things he has not been able to achieve in real life. In Dreamland he has met and fallen in love with KTBABE. He has planned an elaborate wedding in Dreamland, paying attention to every detail.He has bought his bride an exclusive island as a wedding gift. The guest list is being made and the invitations will be sent out shortly. It will be the event of the year in Dreamland.

In real life KTBABE is Kate Wate. She is married to Gavin Wate. The relationship has turned to dust and Kate has found enjoyment in Dreamland, living out her fantasy of a happy life with Stanley. Stanley has fallen in love with her after seeing her picture and corresponding with her on line. When she presses him for a picture of himself,he finally sends her a picture and a romantic poem. The poem is his--the picture is not, for Stan looks nothing like his brother Andrew who is handsome and trim. When Kate receives the picture and the poem, she decides to leave her dolt of a husband and surprise the charming Stan. She is in love with this wonderful man.

Stan's world collapses when he realises that she has arrived at his door. She is a beautiful woman who fell in love with the Stan who lives and works in Dreamland, but he knows the real life Stan is nothing like him. He goes to drastic lengths to avoid seeing her dismay when she meets him.

After they finally do meet Stan's life changes forever. Everyone expects Kate to turn tail and run, but Kate is not your average woman. To find out what really happens you have to read "Stanley's Life."

For me there are lessons in this story. The internet and online gaming makes it easy for people to escape into a fantasy world, but reality is still what it is and eventually they have to face it. On one hand the choices they make in their fantasy life can be a reflection of what their potential could be in real life, if they learn to believe in themselves. On the other hand reality can be more painful than they can deal with when they are forced to face it and the results can be tragic.

Take a chance and read something different. Read STANLEY'S LIFE and consider his world from your own point of view.

Hidden In Plain View
Gabriel Horn considers himself a London boy. But part ownership of the Back to Front Club, a gay bar in the centre of Soho, doesn’t somehow generate the same excitement as his previous employment, an active operative for MI5. When Sir Adrian Gold, Shadow Minister for Defence, offers him the opportunity to repay the government for the shoddy way they forced him out of Thames House, he accepts. His mission: to assassinate the leading Ministers of the British Government. Trouble is, when the body count begins to rise, those closest to him begin to die. Tracked by Scotland Yard and MI5, it isn’t until the CIA become involved that he finds himself trapped in a jigsaw of murder and treachery to avoid an international scandal capable of bringing the British Government to its knees.
