Did I mention the mouse? While we were trying to clean all the beeswax to make candles and lip balm, and before the bees and ants attempted to rob us, there was the mouse. Nothing quite says adventure like being bent over a hot stove, slowly squeezing hot wax through cheesecloth, trying not to burn yourself, and having a cute little mouse popping out from under the cupboards and scaring the bajeezus out of you. This happened not just once, but several times to the point we were just about the jumpiest people you had ever met. I had no clue this would be such an adventure. I was so drained from the day I went to bed an hour early. Sorry hubby, but I am tapping out.

Oh, to stop the voices in her head.

Other people’s voices, that is. As a pub owner with an extra special gift, all Cait Gallagher craves is a moment of silence. That, and to own the building her pub is housed in along with the heart of the building’s landlord, Shane MacAuliffe. Though she is irresistibly drawn to Shane, her vulnerabilities cause her to put up a tough exterior. When the two butt heads, more than sparks fly, and Cait finds herself trembling on the precipice of love.

Shane has watched Cait for years. Stubborn, beautiful, and with a trim body that he is dying to get his hands on, Cait is it for him. And yet, she continues to infuriate him by walking away from his kiss. Every time. At his wits’ end, Shane doesn’t know what to do to make Cait his own.

Unapologetic and fiercely proud, Cait must conquer her insecurities and reveal her true self to Shane or face losing everything.

Running her business as she pleases, Aislinn has danced around serious commitments her whole life.

When Dr. Baird Delaney moves his psychiatry practice to town and stops by her shop to pick up some prints for his office, Aislinn’s world tilts. Irresistibly drawn to his presence, yet convinced that the uptight doctor is a poor match for her free-flowing artistic soul, Aislinn is torn. Both Aislinn and Baird will have to suspend their beliefs as they tumble headfirst into a messy, unrepentant love that challenges both to accept each other unequivocally.

Morgan McKenzie has been on her own since she ran away from a nightmarish foster home at the age of sixteen.

Determined to keep her walls up to protect both her heart and the touch of magick she carries, Morgan fights against her growing attraction for the town’s golden boy, Patrick Kearney.

I am not even sure where to start. Nature is full of robbers for one thing. My partner in crime (Rachael) and I were given a huge bag of honeycomb from our friend that we have been getting the bee swarms from. Yesterday we decided to start the process of cleaning it to get the wax to make candles and lip balm. Everything was going pretty good. We put the dirty comb in cheesecloth and dipped them into very hot water, working the wax out. It was a pleasant cool day, so we decided to put the pots of melted wax and hot water out on the back deck to cool and separate, and we went to lunch. When we came back an hour later and we heard the loudest hum coming from the back deck. Thousands of bees had found our cooling pots of wax and decided they wanted it…ALL! And where do you think my bee suit was? Yup, under the table that was surrounded by grabby bees. Thankfully Rachael had her suit so she was able get the pots and clear the bees away. After much drama we brought everything inside and set the cooled wax out to dry on paper towels. Then came the ants.

Genre: Science Fiction | Action & Adventure | Horror

FREE for a limited time

Jon Hudson, lead investigator for the Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center-P, thinks his job is a joke. While other Fusion Centers focus on thwarting terrorist activity, Hudson’s division is tasked with handling paranormal threats to national security, of which there have been zero during his years at the DHS. When yet another Sasquatch sighting leads to a research facility disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site in the back woods of Maine, Hudson’s job becomes deadly serious.

Hudson and the local Sheriff, Ashley Collins, suddenly find themselves on the run from a ruthless ex-Special Forces security team, but the human threat is short-lived as something very much not-human destroys the facility and heads for civilization, leaving only a single clue behind — a name scrawled in blood: Nemesis. Working with his team at Fusion Center-P, Sheriff Collins and a surly helicopter pilot named Woodstock, Hudson pursues the creature known as Nemesis, attempts to uncover the corporate secrets behind its creation and accidental release and tries to comprehend why several clues lead to a murdered little girl named Maigo.

But as the body-count explodes, along with the monster’s size, it quickly becomes clear that nothing short of a full military response can slow Nemesis’s progress. Coordinating with every branch of the U.S. military, Hudson simultaneously searches for clues about Nemesis’s origins and motivations, and leads the counterattack that will hopefully stop the monster before it reaches Boston and its one million residents.

Witness the birth of a legend as Jeremy Robinson, bestselling author of SecondWorld and Ragnarok, combines the pacing of Matthew Reilly with the mystery of James Rollins and creates the first iconic American Kaiju* story since King Kong. Includes original creature designs by legendary Godzilla artist, Matt Frank.

*Kaiju is Japanese for “strange beast.” The genre includes classic monsters such as Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah.
