DESCRIPTION:

A suicidal former platoon sergeant, sole survivor of a Vietnam War jungle ambush, is haunted by what he perceives as his cowardly past. Debilitated by guilt and mourning the death of his wife, small town newspaper publisher Stan Przewalski lives in a PTSD-fueled world where it is impossible to distinguish reality from fantasy.

Returning from a Vietnam sightseeing tour, his suppressed memories resurface with a vengeance as he deals with a murder and a raging wildfire that threatens to destroy his hometown of Bull River Falls, Colorado. The overly medicated vet meets a magical creature who wears paratrooper boots and rock band tee shirts and commands a subterranean army that believes Stan is the answer to their fight against unscrupulous real estate developers.

While they sabotage cell phone towers and government buildings, these supernatural friends provide an unlikely path to Stan’s redemption.

DESCRIPTION:

Perfect book for the birder and anti-birder alike

A humorous look at 50 common North American dumb birds: For those who have a disdain for birds or bird lovers with a sense of humor, this snarky, illustrated handbook is equal parts profane, funny, and—let’s face it—true.

Featuring common North American birds, such as the White-Breasted Butt Nugget and the Goddamned Canada Goose (or White-Breasted Nuthatch and Canada Goose for the layperson), Matt Kracht identifies all the idiots in your backyard and details exactly why they suck with humorous, yet angry, ink drawings. With The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, you won’t need to wonder what all that racket is anymore!

• Each entry is accompanied by facts about a bird’s (annoying) call, its (dumb) migratory pattern, its (downright tacky) markings, and more.
• The essential guide to all things wings with migratory maps, tips for birding, musings on the avian population, and the ethics of birdwatching.
• Matt Kracht is an amateur birder, writer, and illustrator who enjoys creating books that celebrate the humor inherent in life’s absurdities. Based in Seattle, he enjoys gazing out the window at the beautiful waters of Puget Sound and making fun of birds.

Two years ago a forgotten prison lost its greatest pit fighter when Ashley Honeywood escaped. In her wake, Erica Storm has striven to become an even more powerful pit fighter, but has never been able to escape the shadow of the legend before her.

Now Honeywood has returned.

When Honeywood kidnaps Dexter Valentine, the man holding the prison society together, Storm sets out to track her. Having trained to fight twelve metre crocodiles barehanded, Storm’s next target had been the largest dinosaur carnivore that ever lived. But with the potential for rescuing Valentine and proving herself a hero in the people’s eyes, Storm has all the excuse she needs to take on Honeywood and show everyone that even legends can die.

However, having escaped the dinosaur prison world, Honeywood would only return with a very good reason. Along with her fellow escapee Abe Garza, Honeywood intends to expose Valentine’s secrets to the world. For the past two years she has not been idle and now knows precisely who Valentine is, and why he was given a life sentence. It is a secret Valentine is prepared to do anything to protect.

Facing mighty crocodiles and giant dinosaurs along the way, Storm and Honeywood come to blows in a clash which shows the world who the greatest monsters truly are … with Valentine trying desperately not to be crushed in the middle.

DESCRIPTION:

First sons inherit all. Third sons are promised to the church. Second sons do their duty and serve in the military—unless fate intervenes and turns their lives upside down.

Welcome to Second Sons of London, a new Regency Historical Romance series by bestselling author Alexa Aston, where seven men who are second sons lay claim to fabulous wealth and lofty titles and fulfill their destinies when they find their soulmates.

A self-assured earl who doesn’t like rules. A poised beauty mature beyond her years. Neither thinks they want or need love . . .

Major Owen Hasbury returns from the Napoleonic Wars as the new Earl of Danbury. He’s ready to enjoy life and make love to as many women as he can before settling down and siring an heir. His attitude irks his two closest friends, men who have come into recent titles and made love matches.

Louisa Goulding has a reputation as a bit of a bluestocking. She has served as her father’s hostess since her mother’s death years ago and has been an active part of the meetings in their home with her father’s War Office colleagues, giving her little time for social events. With the war over, Louisa wants to fully participate in the Season and finally live a life for herself, finding a husband who will give her children.

At the insistence of mutual friends, Louisa and Owen meet. She calls him out as a rake, telling him she won’t waste any time on him. But her beauty and intelligence intrigue Owen. He becomes friends with Louisa, even teaching her how to kiss, finally realizing the perfect woman is right before him.

Can Owen convince Louisa that he has changed—or will he lose her to another lord at the house party they attend together?

Find the answer in bestselling author Alexa Aston’s Empowered by the Earl, the third book in Second Sons of London.
