Voted #1 Alien Romance on GoodReads

High school senior Alex Bianchi’s estranged father gets her an internship at Circe Operations Center to pad her college applications. But Circe isn’t your typical military base. It’s an alien-run operation center and not all of the aliens are friendly, especially the one that tries to kill Alex on her first day. When Ace, a dark-eyed Caltian, enters and saves the day, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Can these star-crossed lovers survive when they’re on the brink of intergalactic war?

About the Author:

..

Self-proclaimed geek-to-glam poster child who channels her inner geek by writing science fiction for teens even though she slept with a night light until she was in middle school for fear of alien attacks.

..
From the reviewers:
..

It’s a tiny bit Twilight, a tiny bit Men in Black…and a whole lot of fun!  -Lydia Kang, author of  The Fountain (upcoming 2013 from Dial/Penguin) 

..
If you are looking for a light read to make you laugh and fall in love right along with Alex Bianchi, this is the book for you. It’s sweet, exciting, and there are more than a few uber creative alien peculiarities that will keep you turning the pages. -GP Ching, best-selling author of The SoulKeepers series 

……
How to Date an Alien is a lot of fun. Alex is a sweet girl full of smarts and charm. Ace is a total hottie. Romance with gorgeous aliens -I’m in!   – Rashelle Workman, author of Exiled

….

I wasn’t sure I’d view an alien as hot, but Ace was yummy. I loved that Alex wasn’t the stereotypical pretty. Big hips and glasses FTW! Looking forward to the rest of the books in the series. -Karen Amanda Hooper, Author of Tangled Tides

Here’s the set-up:

Simeon Grist, seen before in The Four Last Things , is an up-to-date private eye, a hip survivor of the Woodstock Generation bemused by current L.A. life. He’s also a bit seedy, drinking too much and backsliding into cigarette smoking, with a wry outlook and heart of gold that keep him squarely in the hardboiled Hammett-Chandler tradition. Hired to find a 13-year-old runaway who left Kansas to become a Hollywood star, Simeon soon finds himself mired in L.A.’s seamy underworld of teenage hustlers, pimps and all-around losers. Using as decoys his teenage godchild Jessica and a young computer whiz smitten by her, Simeon uncovers a vast interstate ring involving a talent agency, a bent cop and high-tech kiddy-sex. While providing a nasty new meaning for a computer “menu” and some scenes not for the squeamish, Hallinan employs skillful pacing, L.A. color and Simeon’s attractive persona to grip readers right through the gory climax and somewhat reassuring ending.

Here’s the set-up:
Southeast Michigan, present day. The auto companies are sinking faster than an SUV off Luna Pier, and the job scene is the worst in America. But ever since his father hired on at flourishing Wolverine Motors, Milo Shoemaker feels like a winner. Doesn’t Wolverine make the best fire engines in the world? Their workers must be doing something right.
Then his dad drives over a cliff in the fog. Someone robs their house during the funeral. Did his father die by accident–or did his past catch up with him? To find out, Milo passes up college to take a job at Wolverine, where he uncovers dangerous truths about business, heroes, and the boss’s daughter. Maybe some secrets should remain… unaccounted for.

Kindle Nation Daily Bargain Book Alert! Kristen James’ Romantic Thriller THE ENEMY’S SON – 5.0 Stars on Amazon and Now Just 99 Cents or FREE via Kindle Lending Library

“The Enemy’s Son was FULL of excitement and action the entire way though! It was a definite edge-of-your-seat page turner. I think this book could easily be adapted into a movie and would appeal to both men and women with a perfect combination of action and romance.” ~5 star Amazon review

The Enemy’s Son

by Kristen James

5.0 stars – 3 Reviews
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

Cora discovers her father is in trouble… and the only person who can help her is the enemy’s son, Nick Holloway.

Her father couldn’t have stolen a million dollars, so how is he going to replace it? In one week?

Nick claims he wants to help Cora and says he’s deceiving the Hollways to keep her safe…but what if he’s playing both sides? He could be using her attraction to him against her. Nick is ordered to take Cora out into the wilderness to a remote cabin to keep her father in line. Cora can’t allow herself to trust Nick, no matter how sexy he is.

Nick isn’t the only one offering to help. Alexander Pierce could scare the devil but he can also track down anyone in a day. He warns Cora that if she wants to find her father alive, he’s the way.

Soon she’s running from her feelings for Nick, running from creepy Alexander and the rest of the Holloways, and trying to find her father somewhere in the city of Eugene. To make matters worse, everyone thinks she has access to the missing money.

The clock is ticking…

50,000 Words

PREVIEW
Everyone was lying to everyone else. She couldn’t trust Nick. Alexander had told her some useful information, but he clearly had some ulterior motives. Maybe he wanted to make Nick look bad, or get rid of Jerry, or both. She guessed he had included her in his plan.

She slowly made her way to a light sleeping state. Only minutes later, or what seemed like minutes, a touch pulled her harshly back into the dark, small room.

She smelled Nick and started to say his name when his hand gently covered her mouth.

“Cora, we have to get out of here.”

He wasn’t whispering. Where was Alexander? She pushed him away to say, “What will happen to Jerry if I disappear?”

“Do you want to know what will happen to you if Jerry doesn’t repay that money?”
He leaned close. “That’s why Alexander’s here.”

“Does Keith think you couldn’t do away with me?” she asked. He shook his head and started to say something. She interrupted. “Nick, I can’t leave. They’ll kill Jerry.”

“Alexander will kill you.”

READING GUIDE
The Enemy’s Son is nonstop action, danger and romantic suspense. Contains language, some violence and sexual situations.

One Reviewer Notes
“I had to get this when I saw Kristen James has a new book out, and I’m glad I did. Cora steps into a dangerous mess right away and the action carries you through right to the end. It kept me guessing – what’s going on with her father? Was he framed or did he embezzle money? Who really is the bad guy? There’s the Holloway family and Alexander Pierce who is after Cora for different reasons. The romance between Cora and Nick Holloway adds another interesting layer and complication to the story as she tries to save her father. I sat down to read this and couldn’t quit until I saw how it all turned out.” – Amazon Reviewer

We meet up with Caitlin and Mike on a corporate retreat/fishing trip to Alaska that ends up ANYTHING but relaxing. The scenery is breathtaking and the is action non-stop--even explosive.
Fireweed
by Casey Clifford
5.0 stars - 5 reviews
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here's the set-up:
Laptop--check. Fishing rods--check. Waders--check. Bug Spray--check. Tackle box--check. Gun--why?
The Raffertys never thought they'd need a gun on a corporate fishing trip to Alaska. But when a death occurs while fishing, and a sniper attacks the lodge, Mike and Caitlin have more to handle than trophy fish or agendas. Staying alive becomes their goal, but that's not so easy in the Alaskan bush.

This is book 2 in the Affair Series which started with Back Ribbon Affair. The protagonists Caitlin and Mike Rafferty are now married and dealing with the challenges of dual-career marriage. Like past married couples in movies and TV series, they often find themselves in challenging situations that their unique skills help them resolve.
One Reviewer Notes:
Casey Clifford has done it again, but better! This is the classic gothic type mystery with everyone in a remote location and a killer on the loose that has to be one of them. This time the remote location is a fly-in fishing lodge in Alaska, and the protagonists, Mike and Caitlin Rafferty who starred in her debut novel BLACK RIBBON AFFAIR, are up to their necks in deadly corporate intrigue on what is supposed to be a team-building vacation. I found myself on the edge of my seat, trying to find out who did what to whom, and why, and hoping that the characters I'd begun to care about were not guilty--or about to die! Great suspense, great setting details, great character variety and motivation. Clifford kept me guessing to the very end, and that's the way I like it!

From the reviewers:

WOW in just 15 minutes of reading I downloaded an app for my kindle which enlarge my use of it 10 fold, not to mention apps like Calibre etc etc JUST BUY IT, youll be happy the minute you start to read it, you will say to yourself, “why diddn’t this information come with my Kindle.”   –  RAS

This is superior to the book that comes with the Kindle Fire. It has more info and it is easier to find what you want.  – E.M. Marks

This book is perfect for us beginners to read instructions in layman terms. I’ve passed this book link on to several other friends with Kindles that could use the help. Thank you, it’s been a great help.  – “brandysmom”

I’m a librarian in a relatively poor school district and I bought a Kindle so the kids could have more exposure to technology. With a limited budget, I need all the help I can get. This book has been so helpful! It goes way beyond the basics with lots of good info on how to get free books and other reading material. And there’s info on useful apps to enhance the Kindle. And every section of the book describes how to do things on each of the various Kindle models. It definitely is helping me maximize the use of my Kindle.  –  Joan Reichel

I bought this book for our new Kindle Touch and Kindle Fire and these guys nailed it! The book was extremely useful in helping my family and I navigate our new toys. Great tips for all Kindle devices all in one book!  –  Candace Cheatham

I bought this book for our new Kindle Touch and Kindle Fire and these guys nailed it! The book was extremely useful in helping my family and I navigate our new toys. Great tips for all Kindle devices all in one book!  –  Thomas E. Kirchner

I liked the many, many links, internal (to other chapters, etc.) and external (to books, websites, etc.). I was totally amazed that Steve and his team had managed to compile this book within 2 weeks after the kindle Fire was released. And they did a very good job of it. What is neat is that this guide also covers all the other Kindles and as I also own a 2nd generation Kindle that is just making this guide that more useful to me.  –  AA Westenberg

I cut my teeth as a writer covering the Cape Cod Baseball League and other sports for what was then called the Cape Cod Standard-Times and later the Boston Globe, studied the craft of writing with Robert Lowell, Kurt Vonnegut, Monroe Engel and Carter Wilson, and served as Fiction Editor of the Harvard Advocate.

In 1999 I founded a small independent publishing company called Harvard Perspectives Press (named after two of my favorite institutions from my undergraduate years, the Harvard House of Pizza and the Harvard Wine Company), and it has done astonishingly well, with a couple of niche bestsellers, other work that we have been proud to publish, and now some stunning successes with the Kindle publishing platform.

I have three wonderful children, and along the way I’ve been an author, a community organizer, a bookseller, a publishing executive, a marathoner, an elected official, and some other things unsuitable for mention here.

Bruce Grubbs has been hiking, backpacking, and cross-country skiing throughout the American West for more than 40 years. He participated in the technical first ascents of the last major summits to be climbed in the Grand Canyon, including Buddha Temple, Holy Grail Temple, the striking pinnacle at Comanche Point, Malgosa Crest, and Kwagunt Butte. Bruce has spent more than 400 days hiking in the Grand Canyon. He continues to enjoy long backpacking treks in the more remote sections of the Grand Canyon, as well as hiking and backpacking trips elsewhere in the American West.

Outdoor writing and photography have long been serious interests of Bruce’s. His first published article was in a local Arizona outdoor magazine 35 years ago, and he has since been published by Backpacker Magazine and several regional publications. About 20 years ago, his writing focus expanded to include books, with the publication of Hiking Arizona with Stewart Aitchison. He has since written twenty four more published books.

Earlier, Bruce worked eleven seasons as a wildland fire fighter for the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management. His positions included fire lookout, engine foreman, helitack foreman, and fire station manager.

He was part owner of an outdoor shop for eight years, selling hiking, backpacking, climbing, and skiing gear. He started and continues to run a successful computer consulting business, offering personal computer support and website design to individual clients and small businesses.

Bruce has been a professional pilot for more than twenty years, and holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate with multiengine rating. He also holds a Flight Instructor certificate with instrument rating. Currently, he is an active, part-time air charter pilot with more than 7,000 hours of flight time.

Other interests include Amateur Radio, where he served for several years as the Amateur Radio Emergency Coordinator for Coconino County, Arizona.
