Come along on this journey filled with vampires, witches and prowling were-panthers -- where the heartaches of love and betrayal become twisted by the hands of fate.
Lenora and Leonia are two very powerful witches, but, more than that, they are closely bonded sisters.
When Leonia meets Orin, a hot, steamy man that seems to have stepped straight from a dream, her entire life is turned inside out. Embracing her chance at love could mean having to change everything she is -- everything she's known.
Lenora doesn't harbor any love for her sister's new love interest. There's just something about him that doesn't resonate with her, but for Leonia's sake, she does what she can to keep the peace. In the meantime, she sets her sights elsewhere. She takes pity on some unfortunate souls from a nearby village, consequently creating the first vampires.
Now, it's up to Leonia and Orin to correct her misguided mistake before it's too late. But the stakes are high. The price could very ...

The Jet-Four Statelines Flight Forty-Six, London to New York. A full complement of crew and passengers and something 'not entirely satisfactory' with the undercarriage.
In the air, Captain David Crooke, veteran fighter-pilot of World War II, faces a situation becoming increasingly more unstable. He was prepared for trouble with the passengers, but now it appeared a crisis was likely to explode in the crew quarters.
On the ground, Robert Fleming, a discredited pilot, tried to persuade the authorities -- and himself -- that he knew how to get the Jet-Four down in one piece. When they told Crooke on the radio a few minutes later, he replied: 'It's crazy -- but then flying is crazy. And as a matter of fact, I'm crazy. We'll do it.'

From Malki Press comes the first book in the Badwater trilogy.
When her village is consumed by the advance of industrialisation and her folk are cleared from their homes, a young girl defies her position and sets out to return her older brother.
Accompanied by a blue-skinned man, familiar with violence, the pair traverse an indifferent and harsh landscape, attempting to reclaim her kin, a part of his soul, and some semblance of peace. A task seemingly impossible as their oneiric odyssey through suffering, cruelty and the fabric of time distorts all they know.
A Badwater story.
"Toman is a master manipulator. His ability to have the reader giggling at his vivid grotesquery, then reeling in horror in the turn of a page is second-to-none. I loved this book, and now I fear for my psychological health. A powerful, deliciously bleak dive into the dark heart of man."
- Euan McBride, author of A GIRL IN A POOL.
An ocean away from Badwater is the frozen wave, before it a ship of desperate souls. A butcher. And a girl.
From Malki Press comes a grim fable of survival, cruelty, hope and how to properly preserve longpig. A Badwater story.
"Dark and disturbing. The sense of dread and foreboding seeps through its very core."
--James McCulloch, writer of CITY OF LOST SOULS.
"But God Made Hell by Stephen Toman, published by @malkipress is a new novella, the second in a trilogy, charting the journeying of a shipwrecked crew split up by suddenly frozen seas and unpredictable melts, some of them travelling alone, others in teams, and their unsparing human resourcefulness in the face of an expansive, alien wilderness, where their lives lie beyond the reach of human laws --- beyond justice, beyond judgment, beyond reason. This tale carries critical undercurrents that attack imperialist expansionism and climate change, not least by the topological violence of the strangely active landscape which threatens ...

"Longing came hurrying, a train I could never catch except for a glimpse, the smoke intoxicating my lungs in an addictive way until I was completely devoid of anything concrete, devoted to a ghost of demands. I braided words in my attempts to swim above the dark, bottomless ocean. A safety net taking me back a place I could call home, leading me to the lighthouse as a numb moth that takes every gleam for the sun. Now I share the rope for you to hold on to. "
"Longing" is Giulia de Gregorio Listo's first poetry collection. Feeding on the absences that live inside us, her poetry seeks to translate what is it that we so deeply long for, our incapacity to find a proper name for this feeling, and how what lack in us is often what makes us whole.

One minute, I'm about to lose my job.
Then the next minute, I'm falling for my boss.
In my defense, I didn't know that Jace was the new owner of the company that I worked for.
He was just a hot billionaire that I met in a coffee shop.
One that I wanted to explore a relationship with.
I wanted to flaunt him.
To make other women jealous.
But of course, life works in mysterious ways.
The flaunting went down the drain when he became my top secret at the office.
Handing him my V-card was the beginning of an end.
It led to something that I wasn't ready for.
Sleeping with the boss was scandalous enough.
But expecting his baby?
That was a whole new level of crazy I'd never experienced before.
Pregnant with Boss's Baby can be enjoyed as a complete standalone with a very satisfying HEA. There is no specific reading order to the Billionaire Bosses series and you can start this series from whichever book you prefer.

Avoiding the wealthy inhabitants on the upper levels of Station Kelly Kornienko is bot-programmer Triana's number one rule. Well, number two, right after "eat all the chocolate."
But when one of her cleaning bots finds a dead body, all the rules go out the airlock. A highly connected security agent interrupts her routine with stories of missing bodies, and Triana can't ignore him; it's cooperate or find a new job. A girl has to pay the rent, even on a crappy studio compartment.
Working with a shiny detective beats a shuttle dirt-side, so Triana lends her programming skills to Agent O'Neill's investigation. Together, they find more victims and evidence of a major cover-up.
It will take all Triana's technical talents, most of O'Neill's connections, and some really excellent croissants to stop the murders, save her job, and ultimately, her life.

"Do you think he doesn't care about the hours he's putting in?" Vickie asked.
"I get it," Bobby responded, clearly annoyed. "And I'm not saying Taylor doesn't care about the work. I'm only saying that... well, it's not like him to be late."
Vickie shrugged and returned to her work. "The chances are he went to that breakfast place the two of you love so much."
"It's called Il Fornaio, and it's not only a breakfast place," the mechanic replied and resumed his task. "Actually, the fact that they serve breakfast is incidental. They're an Italian place, so they serve Italian food for all three meals of the day. And a couple more meals too if you're a hobbit."
"You're Korean, though, so why don't you go more for the Asian food?"
"I'm Chinese-American, thank you very much," Bobby said. "And it's not a trait that defines who I am or what I eat. I happen to like me some authentic Italian food, so there."
"Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you." She sounded genuine in her apology. "Still, ...

He might well gaze, but he could not, under any circumstances, tell her the truth."
