Hubby nearly had a heart attack when he saw the Amazon alert pop up on his phone. I may have purchased 3 or 8 new bathing suits. I actually am only going to buy one, but I need to try them all on, and in multiple sizes. I just couldn’t bring myself to buy them in a store. Trying on bathing suits is a very emotional thing and must be done in the privacy of your own home. I really need to be able to scream and cry privately. I hate this time of year. It is the exact opposite of Christmas. During the Christmas season you get to hide under big sweaters and eat whatever you want. It is considered festive and social to eat cookies, and little cakes. Maybe even have a party where you trade treats. We celebrate food and worship it like a god. At least I do. Bathing suit season is the exact opposite. There is no hiding under big clothes. You stand there half naked, rolls out in full glory, and even the thought of a sweet treat is a sin. A SIN!!! This year I am just buying a bigger bathing suit than I need, so I can grow into it over the Summer. I plan on enjoying the sunshine with a few sweet treats included.

Genre: Literature & Fiction

FREE for a limited time

Young counter-terrorist cop Sam Archer arrives for work at the Armed Response Unit expecting a quiet day.

But unbeknownst to him, a storm is coming.

Three men have already been killed that morning. One committed suicide by the River Thames. Another was strangled in his car in Washington D.C. And the third was shot in the face in his high-rise New York apartment as he slept. The deaths seem random, thousands of miles apart. But they are all connected. By a shocking event fifteen years ago.

And this is only the beginning.

Archer, Chalky and the rest of the Unit suddenly find themselves plunged into a ferocious and violent confrontation, fighting for their lives. The enemy they are up against are brutal, highly trained, well-armed and anonymous. No one knows where they have come from. No one seems to know who they are.

But they have a vendetta. They will never forgive or forget, or show mercy.

And for some reason, they’re hell-bent on killing ten specific people before the end of the day.

As the Unit tries to find out who these killers are and locate the remaining targets so they can protect them, it becomes a race against time to see who can get there first. As the counter-terrorist unit and the vengeful enemy come up against each other all over the city, Archer and the team soon realise two things.

This enemy is more proficient and deadly than any they’ve ever encountered.

And one of their own ARU men is on the extermination list.

FREE for a limited time

Her friends think she’s crazy to fly half-way around the world for a man she met online… but, wouldn’t you take a chance to find true love?

Unfortunately for Annie, things don’t turn out as planned, which is bad, or is it?

Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway ’round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online — only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he’s on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter’s as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to.

Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.

Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger — until he met Annie.

Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo… and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter’s not normally one to poach his brother’s women, but he can’t keep his hands, lips, tongue, and other body parts off this sexy city girl.

When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end — or when Dylan finds out?

Corrigan Bain can see the future… but only about five seconds of it, and only what’s in front of him. He also can’t really control it, and on bad days is pretty positive he’s losing his mind. Still, whether it’s a gift or a curse, Corrigan uses his ability to help people when he can.

But when FBI agent Maggie Trent asks for help on a case, Corrigan’s tenuous grip on reality is shaken. She’s got some dead college students whose deaths aren’t actually accidental, but the only person who can prove that is Corrigan. He doesn’t want to, because doing so would mean facing something he’s been repressing for years.

He was twelve when he learned that monsters are real. They live in the future, and they don’t want to be seen. Now, Corrigan has to stop one of them.

Unfortunately, Corrigan Bain is also going insane.

Fixer is a non-stop sci-fi horror thriller, from the best-selling author of the Immortal series and The Spaceship Next Door.
