The news reporters called it a disaster.
The doctors called it a miracle.
I could still walk. I could still talk. I could still remember every little detail about the train crash.
Until I couldn't.
Six weeks later, I lost my memory.
I woke up believing that it was the morning of the accident.
Six weeks after that, it happened again.
I have retrograde amnesia. I've damaged a part of my brain which allows me to recall the recent past. In other words, I have an extremely limited short-term memory - six weeks to be exact.
The train derailed eighteen months ago.
I've relived that morning twelve times.
When I meet Spencer Hale, I put up a huge fight.
I won't let him in. I can't let him in. But with each day that passes, my walls begin to come down.
I get one step closer to loving him.
And one step closer to losing him.
Welcome to the train wreck that is my life.
"If he's gross, I'm bailing."
That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?
He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.
But Jenny didn't tell me the full story. She didn't tell me about the debt she owed. And now Quinn Cane wants his money's worth, and he's going to make me pay whatever way he can.
"A debt needs to be paid."
The woman who came to meet me didn't owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes. Still, the debt will be paid either way.
She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirty girl. Pure. Innocent. Mine.
Then she whispered my damned name and invaded my world, changing its reasoning.
She wasn't meant to break the rules. But she rolled my dice and won.
Rescued by strangers from a watery grave and given a new identity.

The grand epic set during Napoleon's invasion of Russia: a vividly detailed view of nineteenth-century Russian life by the author of Anna Karenina.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels ever written, War and Peace is Leo Tolstoy's magnum opus, a groundbreaking work of literary realism, and a psychologically acute examination of Tsarist society in the Napoleonic Era. The narrative follows the fates, fortunes, loves, and betrayals of five aristocratic Russian families from an elegant soirée in 1805 Saint Petersburg to the abandoned and burning Moscow of 1812.
With a panoramic cast of characters, including peasants, soldiers, nobles, and historical figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Mikhail Kutuzov, Tolstoy presents a hugely ambitious portrait of the human condition. First published in 1865, this edition of War and Peace was translated into English by Louise and Alymer Maude

Praise for Enchantment's Reach:
'... magnificent... possibly one of the best fantasy books of its kind ever written. It's just that deep, that soul-searching -- that good.' Micki Peluso, journalist, author.
'It just doesn't get any better than this... simply great writing! If you are searching for a great read with a deeper meaning that will leave you in contemplative thought, then this is the book for you.' Dennis Waller, author.
'Expect to be enchanted by the story, by the characters, by the fluid narrative that transport you to another world and keep you captivated to the end... I suspect this book is parading as fantasy while introducing us to glimpses of another reality which few of us suspect, except in our subconscious, is much closer to the unseen world of the archetypes that give form to our perceived reality.'

On the surface a traditional Bildungsroman describing the narrator's journey of self-discovery, this huge and complex book is also a panoramic and richly comic portrait of France in the author's lifetime, and a profound meditation on the nature of art, love, time, memory and death. But for most readers it is the characters of the novel who loom the largest: Swann and Odette, Monsieur de Charlus, Morel, the Duchesse de Guermantes, Françoise, Saint-Loup and so many others -- Giants, as the author calls them, immersed in Time.

This first crime novel written by Alan Fisher is not a story of brutal murders and mutilated bodies. His gentle story is more of a puzzle where readers are asked to look at the evidence shared throughout the book and find the killer before their identity is revealed.
June 2014. Oliver Cole graduates from Hendon Police College as a Detective Constable and heads off to his choice of posting to Northumbria Police in the North East of England. Cole is a shy but highly regarded new recruit with a talent for puzzle solving; from his first day he comes under the instructional wing of long-serving Detective Chief Inspector Jack Collier and his education really begins. Within weeks the body of a young girl is found neatly laid out on a gravestone in a local churchyard with an unusual addition of a noose around her neck. Cole is instructed to work with DCI Collier to find the killer but soon another body is found in identical circumstances and a picture begins to unfold of a serial killer.
