One Man's Opus by Boyd Craven III

One Man's Opus: A Survival and Preparedness Story by [Craven III, Boyd]

Man's Best Friend


Rick is like many Americans. He’s concerned with what he sees on the news, and how the country seems to be ready to tear itself apart. His biggest concern has been civil unrest. Already an avid camper, he sets out to secure his future, and career, by finding his own Eden.

Tina is a small business owner and knows what she wants in life. She and her furry companion find themselves at gunpoint when Rick walks back into her world and forever changes the dynamic between them.

One dog, who’s been the savior, protector, and companion… Opus. The owner of two humans that mostly understand him. Mostly.

When the police walk into an ambush, a series of events forces the couple to bug out. The problem with having to leave for a small town, at a remote location, is it really isn’t a secret. Small towns bring their own problems with crime, and power plays. Everybody knows everybody, and the gossip mill runs as fast as lightning.

Will the trio be as prepared as they need to be?

Traveller - Inceptio by Rob Shackleford


Traveller - Inceptio by [Shackleford, Rob]
If you were sent a thousand years into the past, would you survive?
With the accidental development of the Transporter, university researchers determine that the device sends any subject one thousand years into the past.
Or is it to a possible past?
The enigmatic Transporter soon becomes known as a Time Machine, but with limitations.
An audacious research project is devised to use the Transporter to investigate Medieval Saxon England, when a crack international team of Special Services soldiers undergo intensive training for their role as historical researchers.
The special researchers, called Travellers, are to be sent into what is a very dangerous period in England's turbulent past. 
From the beaches of Australia to the forests of Saxon England, Traveller - Inceptio reveals how Travellers soon learn that they need more than combat skills and modern technology to survive the trails of early 11th Century life.
Review: This is a really great sci fi book that leaves you thinking long after you've finished it. The plot is well thought out, and it seems like a lot of research has gone into it, meaning there weren't any plot holes that I picked up on! Really cool, unique too.

AM13 Outbreak Shorts

Check out my new Wattpad freebie here:

Prologue

AM13 Corrected - High Resolution
I’m glaring at him just as intently as he stares at me. His eyes are so familiar, which really they should be. I’ve spent so much time gazing into them, wondering what’s going on behind them, hoping that he feels the same way I do. But now, something’s off. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it’s definitely there all the same.
It’s not just the cold, unfeeling expression that he’s wearing, or even the red rims and the loss of color in the iris of his eyes—although I do miss the deep ocean blue. 
No, it’s much worse than that.
I bite my lip to trying to stop the tears that threaten to spill out. I want to speak, to ask him why, what’s going on, but my vocal chords feel strangled, constricted. It’s a struggle to even breathe. 
Time passes. I’m not sure how much because nothing changes. We’re still here, everything’s exactly the same. Me verses him in this weird standoff that I just can’t get my head around. All I know for sure is that this isn’t going to end well.
He starts getting anxious. His eyes begin to flicker from side to side erratically. A puddle of drool collects on his chin, and a low growl emits from his stomach—a sound that I’ve never heard come from a human being before. 
What the hell am I supposed to make of all this? 
I’m scared. Absolutely terrified. My palms are sweaty and I can feel my heart pounding in my ears. On top of that, my dry mouth is absolutely aching for something to drink. I’d kill for some water or something right now. 
But then he distracts me from my thoughts by moving. Finally something is going to happen, and I feel a strange sort of excitement at the prospect.
Then he dives for me and everything goes black.

The Good Dictator I: The Birth of an Empire by Gonçalo JN Dias

The Good Dictator I: The Birth of an Empire by [Dias, Gonçalo JN]
An unidentified object parked on the moon - and no one seems to know where it came from. Gustavo, a middle-aged computer programmer with a comfortable and grey life, decides to make a list of what he would need to survive a hypothetical attack. He becomes obsessed with the list, spends a fortune, robs a drugstore: his own family thinks he is going insane. However, after the attack, it’s the insane who are well prepared for a new era in society. First book of a trilogy.

Excerpt:
- I’ll ask you something and you may not decline. – Said Rute with a seductive look.
- Tell me.
- Today, you will have to have dinner with me as a way to repay you for all of your work.
Gustavo gave a little laugh and placed his right hand on Rute's left arm.
- You don’t have to repay me; I did it because I like your company.
- I won't accept a no, please.
At that moment, Gustavo felt like kissing her thin lips, but he thought that perhaps he was misreading her signs and feared being rejected.
- I accept the invitation, then. But first, I will go home, take a shower, change, and bring some wine to water the food.
- Perfect. – Rute answered with a pleasant smile.
While he dressed up for dinner, Gustavo found himself a little nervous, he liked Rute and felt attracted to her, but he wonder if she felt the same way and it everything seemed so fast and recent that it was best to just have a single peaceful, relaxed night, in good company, and not to try any foolishness. He left home very elegant, with two bottles of red wine and with his hands sweating in anxiety.
When he arrived, Rute was already dressed with one of Marta's beautiful dresses, which was somewhat weird for Gustavo. She was still cooking dinner, and they had an exciting talk which lasted the entire dinner, always watered with red wine, which soon made Rute a little tipsy, since she had not drunk for a long time. They talked about the past and their previous relationships. Rute confessed that she missed her two daughters and her father a lot, but she did not mention her grandson, because she did not want to give the image of being grandmother, she didn't even mentioned having missed her husband, because she actually did not feel that way. Gustavo talked about the list, his obsession with the attack, his idiotic parents-in-law, how they had gotten hold of power and the complicated political situation in which he was involved. He did not know whether or not he should kiss her, if he should make a move, if he was mistaking things; Rute on the other hand, felt like kissing him, but she was afraid he took her as an old woman, that the nine year difference would be too much for him. A little after finishing dinner, there was an uncomfortable silence; Gustavo did not know what to say, nor what subject to bring up, he thought silence was a signal it was time to depart, besides, tomorrow he would have to wake up early for the agricultural tasks. He got up, and when he was ready to speak, Rute got up with him and caught his hand softly; she thought of saying something to keep him from going, but she simply looked at Gustavo’s blue eyes; he was filled with courage and approached Rute’s face and lips slowly. After the first kiss, many others came and their hands ran across both of their bodies with more and more intensity; they got into the small bedroom without stopping their kisses as they took off their clothes as they took off their clothes in a clumsy manner and ended up naked on the old bed that Gustavo had brought a few hours ago.
Review: This is a really cool and unique story, the author takes a very different approach to power and the end and rise of the world. It's a very good start to the trilogy and left me wanting more.

Red Night by RK Close

Red Night (Vampire Files Trilogy Book 1) by [Close, RK]
"RK Close has delivered a fast-paced, intriguing novel that seamlessly blends the supernatural and the everyday into one un-put-downable read." - Elicia Hyder, Amazon #1 Best Selling Author, The Soul Summoner Series

“A cross between Twilight & True Blood.” ~ Amazon Reader Review

She knows what hides in the shadows…and now they know about her…

I could go for a man with bite, and I don’t mind a little danger. But when I’m working a routine PI case and meet the seductive and mysterious Adam, it doesn’t take me long to realize he may be way more bite than I can handle.

I’ve just learned vampires aren’t only scary stories told in the dark of night. Adam is the real deal. And, if having one immortal after my heart weren’t enough to convince me, there’s another one after my blood.

A serial killer with an appetite for young blondes is on the loose in Phoenix, and it looks like he’s added me to the menu. I’m a pawn in a game played by beautiful monsters, and one wrong move could mean “game over” for me.

Adam might be the only one who can save me, or he might be the wildest—and deadliest—mistake I’ve ever made.

Review: I love Samantha Young's books, she always brings  a steamy sexual chemistry to her characters that draws the reader in, and this one is no exception. Bailey and Vaughn are a classic case of opposites attract in the best way possible. Their relationship is fun, exciting, and takes you on an emotional rollercoacter. Absolutely loved it!

The Marked One by Chevoque

The Marked One (The Marked Series Book 1) by [Chevoque]
All Aaliyah had ever wanted was to be invisible…

To not be stared at. To not have to display her lifelong pain everywhere she goes. But society is too blind to see that beauty lies beneath the skin.

Aaliyah only reveals her special mark—a facial birthmark—to the closest people in her life. But when Aaliyah’s friend paints her in a portrait titled The Marked One, her birthmark is exposed to the world. Now no amount of makeup can keep Aaliyah’s secret.

Tristan Gerardo appears to be a successful CEO, but he is hiding many secrets…

What many don’t realize is that his successful public persona is a mask for his own pain—both of losing a sibling, and his failed marriage.

Tristan buys a portrait called The Marked One, and is shocked when the subject of the portrait arrives for an interview at his company. He pursues Aaliyah, and while she is cautious at first, she feels an ease around Tristan that she’s never experienced before.

Little by little, Tristan’s secrets are exposed…

While Tristan struggles to keep Aaliyah from finding out how his sister died, she discovers he is still married. He assures her she has his full loyalty and the divorce is just a matter of time, and she desperately wants to believe him. But his estranged wife re-enters his life, and Tristan must figure out how to convince Aaliyah that she means the world to him.

How can Tristan make Aaliyah realize that he loves her for herself, and not because of her notoriety as The Marked One?

Twenty-four-year-old musician Charlie Stone has always played the classics. It’s just another day of playing the same old songs when he notices her—Anna Garrett, a beauty with cold-bitten, rosy cheeks and a coffee cup clutched in her hands.
