Heart of the Empire by Carrie Summers

Heart of the Empire (The Broken Lands Book 1)


Two young people fighting for justice…

On opposite sides of the war.

Tainted magic spills from a crack between worlds. Quakes rattle the Atal Empire, opening rifts that sunder towns. As the land shatters and betrayals cleave the Emperor’s court, ancient power awakens in a flame-haired young woman.

Savra, a miner on a remote coast, lives in innocence of her Emperor’s savage rule. Only her father’s disappearance–and the rumors of his rebel connections–break her illusion. But when she’s suddenly torn from her home, turned pawn in the plots of madmen, a chance meeting with a young man provides the first glimpse of her tangled destiny.

For nineteen years, Kostan has been groomed for one thing: ascension to the throne. One of thirteen imperial Scions, he bears a wound that won’t heal until his twenty-first birthday. On that date, the shape of the Scions’ scars will determine the next Atal Emperor.

Savra secretly fears she carries her father’s rebel blood. Kostan despises everything the Empire stands for. Neither desires a fight, but as the Empire crumbles around them, they stand on opposite sides of a war. Each can be part of the Empire’s salvation, but only if they can bridge the chasm dividing them.

Tangled fates. Epic stakes. Read it now and join thousands who have entered the Broken Lands.

The Hardest Ride by Gordon L. Rottman

The first book of bestselling author Gordon L. Rottman’s acclaimed “Ride” series! A USA TODAY and Amazon bestseller, this wonderfully crafted tale of 1800s Western life won the Western Fictioneers’ Peacemaker Award for Best Western Novel 2014, was a Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award Finalist for Best First Western Novel 2014, and was a Western Writers of America Spur Award Finalist for Best Traditional Western Novel for 2013.

The Texas-Mexico border, the winter of 1886—The Great Die Up. A raw rift separates Mexicans and Anglos. A loner cowpoke and a mute Mexican girl fight man and nature to reunite.

Out of work cowpoke Bud Eugen comes across Marta, a mute sixteen-year old Mexican girl whose family has been killed by Indians. Bud reluctantly takes her along, even though he’s never had to accommodate another person in his simple life. He’s unable to find anyone willing to take her. In spite of his prejudices, Bud grows to like the spunky girl (and her excellent cooking).

Eventually, they both find work on a border ranch. Here, the relationship between the girl and the young cowboy hesitantly grows. But banditos raid the ranch, kidnapping the rancher’s daughters and Marta. Bud, with twelve other men, pursue the banditos into the most desolate reaches of Mexico. Ambushes and battles with banditos, Rurales, and traitors are constant, and the brutal weather is as much a threat as the man-made perils. Life and death choices are made at every turn as one side gains the advantage, then the other.

The rancher’s daughters are rescued, and the exhausted party turns back. But Bud presses on alone, against insurmountable odds – determined to fulfill an unspoken promise to Marta.

LIVING IN LOVE by Masood Ssekalema

LIVING IN LOVE: A Marriage and Relationship Guide for Couples


DO YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR RELATIONSHIP MORE PASSIONATE? MORE INTIMATE? MORE LOVING? DO YOU WANT DEEPER AND MORE CONNECTED SEX?

LIVING IN LOVE is your ultimate relationship guide.

One of the biggest myths about relationships is that intimacy can’t last forever. It can. We simply need to cultivate it, just as we cultivate our skills in parenting and our careers. This book equips couples with skills to do just that.

Our sexual well–being goes hand in hand with our overall mental, physical, and emotional health. This page–turning relationship guide in the tradition of Professor Barbara De Angelis’s HOW TO MAKE LOVE ALL THE TIME, and Ellen Kreidman’s LIGHT HER FIRE, discusses at great length the mental, physical, and emotional factors that promote healthy relationships. It also discusses how couples should work on these factors to enjoy more fulfilling sex into old age.

Sex is, without doubt, a physical act—it can happen even without intimacy. However, in a loving relationship, it should be the physical expression of intimacy, and should come from a place of love and connection. In other words, sex and intimacy should be inextricably linked: intimacy should build sex and sex should build intimacy. This insightful and exciting book discusses how couples can make that possible.

Here is a sample of the topics you will find in the book:

1. Bad conversational habits that ruin intimacy
2. Bad communication habits that ruin intimacy
3. Seven exercises that improve sexual performance in men and women
4. Knowing your love muscles and keeping them fit for sex
5. How to set the mood for lovemaking
6. Foreplay board games to spice up your lovemaking
7. Taking your penis to the “Gym” with the Hydromax
8. How to effectively manage sexual problems of women

The Culper Ring by Charles River Editors

The Culper Ring: The History and Legacy of the Revolutionary War’s Most Famous Spy Ring


*Includes pictures
*Includes correspondence between the spy ring and explains the results of their activities
*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading
*Includes a table of contents

After the siege of Boston forced the British to evacuate that city in March 1776, Continental Army commander George Washington suspected that the British would move by sea to New York City, the next logical target in an attempt to end a colonial insurrection. He thus rushed his army south to defend the city.

Washington guessed correctly, but it would be to no avail. Unlike Boston, New York City’s terrain featured few defensible positions. The city lacked a high point from which to launch a siege, as the peninsula of Boston was fortunate to have. Moreover, Washington wasn’t sure defending the city was necessary, hoping that an expedition launched toward Quebec like the one Benedict Arnold had led in late 1775 would keep the British away from New York anyway. However, Congress thought otherwise, and demanded that Washington defend New York.

Washington thus did what he was told, and it nearly resulted in the army’s demise. In the summer of 1776, the British conducted the largest amphibious expedition in North America’s history at the time, landing over 20,000 troops on Long Island. British General William Howe, who had led the British at Bunker Hill and would later become commander in chief of the armies in North America, easily captured Staten Island, which Washington was incapable of defending without a proper navy. Washington’s army attempted to fight, but Washington was badly outmaneuvered, and his army was nearly cut off from escape. The withdrawal across New York City was enormously disorderly, with many of Washington’s troops so scared that they deserted. Others were sick as a result of the dysentery and smallpox plaguing the Continental Army in New York. In what was arguably the worst defeat of the Revolution, Washington was ashamed, and he also felt betrayed, by both his troops and Congress.

However, unbeknownst to nearly everyone, Washington had some men remain active in New York City: the now famous Culper Ring, one of the Revolution’s first major intelligence efforts. The ring consisted mostly of a group of civilians in and around New York City who spied on the British forces and Loyalist Americans and reported what they saw and overheard ultimately to Washington, who took a personal, hands-on approach to their management. After modern histories brought their story more fully to light, these spies have since become the subject (with the historical facts somewhat altered) of a recent hit television show, Turn: Washington’s Spies.

Without question, the relatively little-known clandestine actions of these patriotic men and women contributed to the eventual victory of the long struggle for American independence, and several good books cover part or all of the history of the Culper Ring. However, the main sources consist of the correspondence, much of which has somehow survived, between the members of the ring and their military handlers. Like other spy tales, theirs is a story of courage fraught with constant suspense at being found out and facing a caught spy’s usual fate of imprisonment and execution. Indeed, around the time the ring was being organized, America’s most famous spy, Nathan Hale, had been caught with maps of British positions on Long Island in his possession and had been summarily hanged.

The Culper Ring: The History and Legacy of the Revolutionary War’s Most Famous Spy Ring profiles the members of the ring and their activities. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the Culper Ring like never before, in no time at all.

Dark Space Universe by Jasper T. Scott

Dark Space Universe (Book 1)


A STANDALONE SEQUEL TO THE BEST-SELLING DARK SPACE SERIES
THE UNIVERSE IS DARKER THAN WE THOUGHT…
Lucien Ortane is a Paragon in the Etherian Empire. His job is to explore the universe and spread Etherian doctrines of peace, justice, and immortality to sentient beings everywhere. Like all Paragons, and most citizens, Lucien believes that Etherus, the benevolent ruler of the Empire, is exactly who he claims to be: the one true God and creator of the universe.

But not everyone is a believer.

The Academy of Science circulates a petition to send a mission to the cosmic horizon and learn the true nature of the universe. Over a billion people sign it, and Etherus grants their request, but with a dire warning: evil is lurking in the dark.

Undaunted by this warning, three hundred million scientists from the Academy prepare to leave the Empire on what will be the longest and most incredible journey in history.

A small group of Paragons also join the mission, each of them for their own reasons. Lucien Ortane tells himself that he’s going in order to settle other people’s doubts, and to keep a bunch of hapless scientists safe. After all, he’s a Paragon, one of Etherus’s most faithful servants.

Yet even the faithful have doubts. Is the universe infinite? Does it have an edge? Is it shaped like a sphere, or connected like a torus? Did it need a creator, or does it cycle endlessly, god unto itself? These are the questions that the Academy is trying to answer, but the answers they get could be their undoing. God or not, Etherus was telling the truth about one thing: evil is lurking in the dark….

Handsome, rich and highly intelligent, Peter Gerard seems destined for a brilliant career in the US diplomatic service…

Joining him on his first foreign assignment will be his fiancée, the beautiful Cynthia Barbee.

But in one day, Peter’s plans are suddenly shattered.

First, by the news that a plot against the government has been uncovered in his home town, Simonton, Connecticut.

Then, by Cynthia’s cruel refusal to join Peter in Simonton for the winter, where the State Department and FBI now plan to send him on a top secret mission.

Angered and deeply hurt, Peter rejects Cynthia and announces that he’d marry the first girl he met rather than crawl back to her…

Ever since a motor accident left her older brother, Noah, both a widower and an invalid, the lovely but lonely Nancy Jones has devoted her life to him.

Seeing him tormented by her sacrifice, she convinces Noah that she does indeed have a life of her own by claiming to be engaged.

So when she chances upon Peter Gerard and hears his announcement, Nancy soon finds herself asking if he’d marry her.

For, much to Nancy’s surprise, Peter agrees.

What follows is a story of romance and intrigue, as the two newlyweds return to Simonton with a cover for their hasty marriage.

But in this peaceful little town – where everyone is both a friend and a suspect – will Peter be able to confide in Nancy and reveal the details of his secret mission?

With blackmail, night-time prowlers and bloodshed eclipsing their ‘honeymoon’, Peter and Nancy’s impulsive agreement proves to be much more dangerous and reckless than they imagined…

Holly is deeply in love, and her new husband’s career in the Foreign Office allows her to rub shoulders with diplomats and ambassadors, feeding her love of adventure. The future seems full of promise until her inept attempts to assist her husband in his career—and become a heroine in her own right—leads her to trust the wrong person. Suddenly Holly is plunged into a terrible conflict of loyalties, where she must choose between saving her nearly-broken marriage–and her beloved brother’s life!
