In the Presence of Krishnamurti: Mary’s Unfinished Book

Mary Zimbalist was Jiddu Krishnamurti’s assistant, traveling companion, hostess, and the person closest to him since his brother died in 1925. Krishnamurti asked her to write about what it was like to be with him. From his death in 1986 until her own in 2008, she worked diligently and continuously at doing this using her extraordinary daily dairies as her source. She never finished, but this beautifully written testimonial to a remarkable man conveys a sense of him and their relationship that is unequaled. It is unfinished, but it is not incomplete.

Take some romance, throw in a little bit of historical fiction and add a dash of time travel and science fiction and you have the basis for this interesting story. … The premise for Thunder Mountain is intriguing and will appeal to fans of both historical and science fiction. This is an easy, light read, and I am interested in revisiting these characters on their future adventures.”

Hunter’s Home: Hunter’s Saga Books 1-3

As Alex Hunter watched in outrage through the scope of his rifle, as a large uniformed man threw his mother from porch of their homestead and into the yard. She landed hard, kicking up dust from the hard packed earth of the front yard. She gathered herself quickly as the man walked down the steps and stood over her. She made it to her knees, hands raised imploringly to the man. Outrage quickly became boiling anger as he watched his mom’s rough treatment. He could see her pleading with the man as he approached to stand over her, his face a mask of rage as he glared down. The man, the leader of this group at a guess, barked a few short angry seeming words down at his mother in reply. The next instant hot anger became sickening horror as the man quickly stepped back and drew his sidearm. With no hesitation the muzzle flashed and Alex heard the distant report of the chemical powered pistol that ended his mother’s life.
Horror became unthinking shock as his mother’s body, the center of Alex’s world, slumped to the ground like a puppet with it’s strings cut. This couldn’t be happening. “What? Why?” Alex’s head was spinning incoherently as the man holstered his weapon and started barking orders to his people. They immediately started to fan out to search the barn and the surrounding area.
Shock became stone cold rage. Alex watched the leader turn and start walking towards the house. Something cold and dark was swelling in Alex’s chest. The man was just crossing the threshold back into the house when his head exploded in a fine red mist. The cold eyes of a killer looked out at the world from Alex’s face as he jacked the next round into the chamber.
The first 3 books of Hunter’s Saga! Off planet invaders have attacked Alex Hunter’s world and killed his mother. Vengeance and a need for information drive him forward. Pursued across the landscape, Alex and Keisha Wilson are joined by a squad of the Planetary Security Force to confront this evil from the stars.
Alex and Keisha must also confront the growing feelings they have for each other before their emotions lead them into disaster.

How Nina Got Her Fang Back

**She got issues. Big issues!**
It’s been a while since Nina Statleon-ex-coffin lover, current chicken wing lover-lost her vampire mojo during a particularly brutal OOPS case. Her friends Wanda and Marty are worried. Nina clearly hasn’t dealt with the emotional fallout caused by losing one’s immortality.
And it’s time to call in the Big Gun-paranormal psychologist January Malone. Her friends will get Nina to the therapist’s office, even if they have to lure her with the last bag of Cheetos in Manhattan.
Of course, the girls couldn’t possibly know that Doctor Malone has an agenda. A forced agenda involving blackmail, which may just save one life…while ending another. It goes against everything January, a white witch, has ever believed in, personally and professionally.
But the alternative means putting her trust in a foul-mouthed ex-vampire, her werewolf and halfsie friends, a demon, a zombie, a bear and their assorted mates…
Yikes!

Hot Mess 4

[Siren Publishing: The Stormy Glenn ManLove Collection: Erotic Alternative Romance, M/M, HEA]
*Lany*
I had once thought that my life was the comic relief for the universe. Today, I was positive I had been right in my line of thinking. It was the only way to explain how I ended up sitting on the floor of my favorite Thai restaurant, surrounded by armed men and hostages.
It was my anniversary after all.
*Salvador*
I wanted to go to Lany the moment I stepped into the Thai Rose and saw him kneeling on the floor next to Eddie, but dealing with the people threatening him with guns came first. I didn’t want him in the line of fire if trouble started. Of course, knowing Lany’s luck, just being on the same city block put him in the line of fire.
He was a hot mess.
Note: This book is written in the first-person point of view of both main characters.

History of a Pleasure Seeker

From the acclaimed author of “The Drowning People” (“A literary sensation” –“The New York Times Book Review) “and “Natural Elements” (“A magnum opus” –“The New Yorker”), an opulent, romantic coming-of-age drama set at the height of Europe’s belle epoque, written in the grand tradition with a lightness of touch that is wholly modern and original.
The novel opens in Amsterdam at the turn of the last century. It moves to New York at the time of the 1907 financial crisis and proceeds onboard a luxury liner headed for Cape Town.
It is about a young man–Piet Barol–with an instinctive appreciation for pleasure and a gift for finding it. Piet’s father is an austere administrator at Holland’s oldest university. His mother, a singing teacher, has died–but not before giving him a thorough grounding in the arts of charm.
Piet applies for a job as tutor to the troubled son of Europe’s leading hotelier: a child who refuses to leave his family’s mansion on Amsterdam’s grandest canal. As the young man enters this glittering world, he learns its secrets–and soon, quietly, steadily, finds his life transformed as he in turn transforms the lives of those around him.
” ”
“History of a Pleasure Seeker” is a brilliantly written portrait of the senses, a novel about pleasure and those who are in search of it; those who embrace it, luxuriate in it, need it; and those who deprive themselves of it as they do those they love. It is a book that will beguile and transport you–to another world, another time, another state of being.

Hexad: The Factory

Dale dug furtively, feeling like a muppet but unable to get the previous evening’s conversation with Amanda out of his mind. A stupid, drunken conversation, full of conjecture about the possibility of time travel. Then one of them, he couldn’t remember which, had come up with the idea that if it really was possible at some point in their future then they’d go back in time and bury proof under the apple tree in the garden.
Dale knew he was acting foolish, and prayed Amanda didn’t wake up to find him digging in the dirt. He couldn’t help it though, however ridiculous it seemed. There was that nagging at the back of his mind: what if?
