In a matter of weeks, Trey is thrust into a jaded reality brought on by choices he makes and by the vile actions of those around him. It won't take long for him to look back and see the wreckage left in the wake of wanting.

Attorney Garrett Goodlove never thought he'd prosecute a medical malpractice case. Doctors swear an oath to help people, and those cases are usually honest mistakes blown up by ambulance chasers.
But when he learns of a woman bodybuilder who went into the ER with a case of heartburn and came out in a wheelchair, he starts paying attention.

Garrett is convinced: The surgeon must be stopped.
Teaming up with his daughter, a new law school graduate, Garrett must clear the reputation of their prime witness while battling the doctor's team of elite attorneys who are always one step ahead. The expenses are adding up, but it's too late to back out.

I was born an Elite and forged by the king.
I'm ruthless and soulless, a bastard to fear.
I'm merciless, I'm fierce, and trained to kill.
I'm broken, I'm evil, not worthy of her love.
My Baby Girl has a halo; she's truly an angel.
I always knew she's my soul mate, and yet I force myself to wait.
This wild need compels me to claim her and drives me insane.
My heart aches, my soul rages, and I refuse to have her near.
I can't crown her my queen; thus, the kingdom is not at peace.
The danger and intrigue shroud the Elite.
The wrath of war is in the air, and a woman's scorn is always a power to fear.

I pray he forgets his past deeds, his fears and believes in the greatness that he is.
No matter what he thinks, no matter where he goes, I keep my eye on him, waiting for his call.
I wait, I dream, I think of him.
I place my heart in his hands, knowing that he's my man.
Sometimes dreams come true, whether you're ready for them or not.

Classic horror from the prolific author of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, and thought by H. P. Lovecraft to be the best "weird tale" of all time.
"Algernon Blackwood's novella The Willows uses setting like a master. This story is considered by Lovecraft and others to be one of the greatest horror short stories of all time... I can tell you it creeped me out more than I thought it would. It's a simple tale: two men traveling the Danube by boat end up stopping at an island of willows to pass the night, and they begin to realize that they have trespassed upon a land that does not welcome them, and isn't really a part of our own world. I went in knowing that it greatly influenced Lovecraft, and the parallels in ideas and style are readily apparent in the last half of the story... A beautifully written, enjoyably creepy novella." -- ChicagoNow

He's forced out of the rut of his going-nowhere meat-life and must embrace his new after-life. With a gallows sense of humor, JJ fights his way through the five stages of grief on a journey you will never forget. Along the way he has to confront the bardo (his own personal hell) and delicately tie up his loose ends. If he's not careful, one of his loved ones will die. Life is not easy, even when you're a ghost. Using technology developed at the University of Arizona, JJ communicates from beyond the veil to tell his mind-bending story of life beyond death in his own words. "JJ's heartrending passage, kicking and screaming, through Elisabeth Kübler-Ross' five stages of grief for his lost life, is relatable for any reader who has lost a loved one too soon... The wry humor and raw emotional truth of JJ's journey will have readers rooting for him from death to eternity." Kirkus ...

Aspiring actress Elsie Faber navigates the treacherous waters of Hollywood alongside a cast of kooky friends -- a bloodhound named Sadie, a one-hit wonder's girlfriend and a call girl -- amongst others. While on her quest to nab her dream role, she supports herself by using a constant stream of lies to get into focus groups, which pay cash. Meanwhile, Elsie deals with the competing affections of two very different men.

Professor James Moriarty has one desire left in his shattered life... revenge.
All he wants is to shame the man who ruined him and stop the brute from harming anyone else. Then he meets amber-eyed Angelina Gould and his world turns upside down.
An exploding steam engine kills a man at the International Exhibition. While Moriarty examines the wreckage, Sherlock Holmes appears, sent to investigate by Moriarty's enemy. Holmes finds evidence that points at Moriarty, who realizes he must either solve the crime or swing it for it himself. He soon uncovers evidence of fraud and an unscrupulous company promoter. As he pursues those leads, he bumps into the alluring Angelina at every turn. She's playing some game, but what's her goal? And whose side is she on?
Between them, Holmes and Angelina push Moriarty to his limits -- and beyond. He'll have to lose himself to save his life and win the woman he loves.
