Beautiful young women attract attention.
Sometimes, it's unwelcome.
Emmaline Patterson Clarke is a beautiful young bride with a heart only for her husband, but one night, at a BDSM club in San Antonio, Texas, acting the part of a submissive in the arms of her sexy husband, she attracted an admirer of the worst kind - a stalker, who'd stop at nothing to possess her. She represented everything he wanted - young, stunningly beautiful, blonde, submissive, and married to a member of the military reserves, who, with a little strategy, he could easily have shipped overseas, leaving him alone with the woman of his dreams.
But Emmaline wasn't a submissive at all. She was a practicing dominatrix who stood six-foot-three in her six-inch chrome stilettos, and what's more, she was far more intelligent than he suspected.
There wasn't much Emmaline loved better than a sting, and there was nothing at all she loved better than all-out war.

But the wounded magician is keeping a dark, awesomely powerful and utterly shocking secret hidden until he is fit enough to unleash it. Only by uncovering the truth about the mysterious magician will Rodwell survive his encounter with Camballi and ensure the ones he loves aren't dragged into the dark and dangerous conspiracy that's slowly infecting the doctors, nurses and patients at Turpenton General Hospital.

Water-Gazersby Elizabeth Schultz(FutureCycle Press) Price verified 5 hours ago
Elizabeth Schultz's sixth book of poetry, WATER-GAZERS, confirms and inspires our dependency on and our fascination with water. With particular attention to lakes and oceans, her poetry considers water not only as a source of multitudinous life, but specifically as a source of joy, of surprise, and occasionally of distress and disaster. The rhythms of water are the rhythms of her poetry. Schultz's poems allow us to contemplate our diverse relationships with water as we share it with other living beings, as we travel across it, as we abuse it, and as we listen to it in our dreams.
Shards of Summer takes you on a trip to the beach that you won't soon forget. Flashing back to the mid-1940s--the perfect decade for a gritty noir--Shards immerses you in that era's prevailing feeling of postwar disillusionment, a sense of female dominance, and a sultry atmosphere. Shards of Summer invokes the great pulp dramatists of the day, like James M. Cain, but Kelly Jameson brings a fresh perspective to a well-worn, male-dominated genre, going beyond character archetypes and revealing layer upon layer of female (and male) desires and fears. Sexy and smart, Shards of Summer shows flashes of brilliance.
An England torn apart by conflict.
