A Norfolk Mystery
A missing woman. An anxious brother determined to find her. The life she never told him about. Can he unravel the secrets of the sister he thought he knew and find a way to bring her home?
When Sarah de Malmanche, a newly recruited environmental protestor, disappears under grim circumstances, her brother Ralph decides to launch an investigation. The incident leading to Sarah's disappearance seems to hold the key. But at first, neither Ralph nor the police make any headway.
When Ralph employs a few methods that aren't available to the Norfolk Constabulary, the investigation begins to bear fruit. But uncovering the life that Sarah never told him about and then getting to the truth of what happened to her, proves to be a hazardous business.
Why? Because there are people in Norfolk who don't want him to know the truth. And they also have their methods...
Why, when the exhilaration of sex has diminished, does the heartache of youth still persist?
David Dunlop has left his wife of twenty-nine years. Life had become dull. He sits before a dying fire in his small lonely apartment and revives memories of the women in his life, how they had stirred the fire in his chest. He remembers his first love, Annie, back when he was twelve. And then, much later, his first steady girlfriend, Wendy, and the ecstasy as love and sex had become interwoven. Carol came next, teaching him confidence. And then Gina, and with her he had never been more fulfilled. But Gina had also brought heartache. There was chubby Cynthia, and Grace who believed they would marry. There was Paula, already married. Paula only wanted sex. And then there was Jenny, his wife. But Jenny won't have him back. He can't understand why sex and love had brought so much pain, misery and now utter loneliness into his life, and why the fire in his chest has died.

Pearlie Jane's Soul Food Kitchen Volume 2 is the completion of a two volume anthology set centered around the the fictional character, Pearlie Jane Meadow, and her Christ Community Mission and Pearlie Jane's Soul Food Kitchen, where hungry souls can go to get a meal for a price based upon their ability to pay even if that is zero and an extra helping of love, respect, and compassion. In Volume One Pearlie Jane reached out to Jennifer, a girl in search of the love of her biological father and finds rejection and hard times instead. In Volume One she interacts with love and compassion with a host of characters that many Christians might ignore, Elizabeth and Felicity, prostitutes who were pulled into an association with a local criminal gang leader, Ben an ex-con who spent time in prison for armed robbery, and Leon the mentally challenged younger brother of a local crime boss. We also met atheist Billy Barger who was living a charmed life until his world fell apart and he found himself ...
There are two things you need to know about James Urquhart, science lecturer living in the 21st century and Elizabeth Bicester, Victorian Cambridge graduate.
They both keep diaries and due to a quirk in space-time they met each other at a cricket match at Hamgreen in 1873.
Surprisingly, James, who is just your average confused modern guy, finds Elizabeth is no Victorian prude, who wins him at every turn and returns his quickfire wit with equal gusto. It therefore takes a while and some considerable discussion regarding each other's customs and manners before they realise, they are from different times. And only a little longer to fall in love.
Thus, they'd rather be at home snuggled up reading a book or watching telly. Unfortunately, due to their inquisitive nature about saving the world from being taken over by social media, they find themselves buffeted about in time and alternative universes.
This is not easy. Trying to make sure you have the right clothes for the period is really ...
"A conventional thriller elevated by the author's masterly juggling of characters and subplots." -Kirkus Reviews
New York City becomes ground zero for a bioterrorism attack when a weaponized strain of avian influenza is released into the city subway. The result is devastating--a deadly pandemic that threatens the life of every American.
Evidence leads FBI agents Georgiana Reed and Mark Strickland to a cutting-edge research lab and a beautiful scientist, Dr. Suzy Chen. She had a secret connection to a group known only as the Organization and its sinister Director, who were operating to bring down the US economy. When Suzy's lover, Colonel Max Graham, finds suspicious documents in Suzy's desk, he must make the tortuous decision between protecting his lover and upholding his sworn oath to defend his country.
As Reed and Strickland draw closer to discovering the Director's identity, they struggle to hide the passionate love affair they began in Dead Love.
The government races to stem ...
"My name is Merkim, and I come from the sea."
In 1850, a struggling Irish farmer happens upon a young woman washed ashore on a desolate beach and nurses her back to health. Little does he know who she really is, but in appreciation for his help, she rewards him with a sacred gem and a promise. A promise that a hundred and fifty years later threatens to destroy an entire American family.
The tale takes the reader from that lonely Irish beach all the way to the mountains of the western United States and then drags you deep beneath the waves to the mythical faerie realm of Tir fo Thuinn. There, a mad king awaits, and his wrath over Merkim's Promise spares no one, neither faerie or human.
What if you could go back and re-live those painful, telling, moments in a relationship and say the words you meant to say, take a different path to happiness?
What if you were given those opportunities and assisted by the most unlikely of mentors?
What if life was more like a dream than a perfectly-ordered sequence in time, in that events blended one into another without reason at first, but suddenly made perfect sense?
Welcome to the Village.

Architect Jonathan West is on a big project when he learns his wife, Patrice, has been unfaithful. On a fishing trip in North Carolina's Outer Banks, he's wondering what to do about his marriage when he sees a ghost ship. On it is a spectral woman, gazing at him with a plea in her eyes.

A heartfelt tale of courage and romance, drenched in humor, adventure, and Cherokee traditions.
A treacherous journey leads to a spiritual awakening and a bright new future. Please note that it is a historic fact that the Cherokee were one of the five civilized tribes during the era of this tale. To be considered "civilized" they had to convert to Christianity, learn to read and write English, have a government with laws. This book is fiction. It is not trying to convert anyone to any religion or change the readers values in any way. It is a historic, romantic, adventure.

Deputy McPherson's years of wilderness survival did not prepare her for what would follow after the body of a woman was discovered in her district. After all basic survival skills didn't cover how to handle arrogant Interpol agents, French Diplomats and their lethal body guards, not to mention being sold out by your lieutenant. But all of that paled in comparison to the discovery that an animal believed to be a rampaging bear turned out to be a dragon.
In pursuit of justice McPherson didn't realize she'd stumbled onto a battle older than time itself. Good and Evil could take a back seat to the real world war between the dragon and the descendants of the woman from Revelation 12:17.

They were just six-years old when they became inseparable -- best friends, brothers, thick as thieves. But during senior year of high school, everything changed. Caleb was gay, a fact that Colin just couldn't accept. So the pair went their separate ways for four long years.

Andrew McLain looked out over the Scottish cliffs of Baroncrag and wondered if a curse was haunting his family. Over the years Baroncrag had weathered the backlash of scandals, bastards, gamblers, and whores. The McLain's always came out on top, but Andrew cannot shake the apprehension he feels.
Despite the dark mysteries and scandals of long ago, Andrew McLain had regarded it all as old history. But no longer. Now, it was beginning again.

This open access book was prepared as a Final Publication of the COST Action IC1303 "Algorithms, Architectures and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (AAPELE)". The concept of Enhanced Living Environments (ELE) refers to the area of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) that is more related with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Effective ELE solutions require appropriate ICT algorithms, architectures, platforms, and systems, having in view the advance of science and technology in this area and the development of new and innovative solutions that can provide improvements in the quality of life for people in their homes and can reduce the financial burden on the budgets of the healthcare providers.
The aim of this book is to become a state-of-the-art reference, discussing progress made, as well as prompting future directions on theories, practices, standards, and strategies related to the ELE area. The book contains 12 chapters and can serve as a valuable reference for ...

Who was he, where did he come from? And why was he here? And would the people he met ever be the same? Even he didn't know!
Then, one night he left his cemetery to show the world that a shadow could be more than just a random shape blocking the Sun.
The answers he would find there would challenge our concepts of life and death!
But would they accept him in the world of the living?

Whoever had done this had been brutal and thorough.
Sigrid knew she would kill them.
