Louisiana Catch (2 Copies)
Modern History Press
A grieving daughter and abuse survivor must summon the courage to run a feminist conference, trust a man she meets over the Internet, and escape a catfishing stalker to find her power.
Ahana, a wealthy thirty-three-year-old New Delhi woman, flees the pain of her mother's death, and her dark past, by accepting a huge project in New Orleans, where she'll coordinate an annual conference to raise awareness of violence against women. Her half-Indian, half-Irish colleague and public relations guru, Rohan Brady, who helps Ahana develop her online presence, offends her prim sensibilities with his raunchy humor. She is convinced that he's a womanizer.
Meanwhile, she seeks relief from her pain in an online support group, where she makes a good friend: the mercurial Jay Dubois, who is also grieving the loss of his mother. Louisiana Catch is an emotionally immersive novel about identity, shame, and who we project ourselves to be in the world. It's a book about Ahana's unreliable instincts and her ongoing battle to deter¬mine whom to place her trust in as she, Rohan, and Jay shed layers of their identities.

A secret conspiracy. A remote mountain. A race to save the President's daughter.
Kate Miller has worked hard to carve out a secure job at the Mustang River Ranch.

There's no room in her life for anything that could threaten her newly found peace.
Former SEAL Jack Becker is hot enough to melt any woman's cool exterior. But his arrival coincides with the presence of a horse-loving teenager and her suspiciously well-armed bodyguards. Jack's mission is always his priority but despite simmering suspicions, his attraction to the beautiful guide becomes impossible to ignore.
But someone with sinister intentions is closing in. And when a simple trail ride to see the wild mustangs takes a shocking twist, both Kate and Jack will do whatever necessary to save the President's daughter. Can they save her and escape their enemies, or will any of them leave the mountain alive?

Twisted Threads (10 Copies)
Creative Edge Publishing LLC
Akira Hamada is driven by past failure. Two years earlier, she had a chance to kill her greatest enemy--Kaito Mitsui. Instead, the Yakuza boss forced her to become an assassin in his employ. Now Akira carries out the bloody business of the notorious crime syndicate and hates herself more each day.
When Mitsui hears that his sister's murderer will be on the cruise ship Starfish, he immediately tasks Akira with eliminating the man once and for all. This is what Akira has trained for, but a series of strange events on the ship tests her resolve and shows her a way to redemption.
Devon Lyons, on the other hand, has nothing to do with assassins. He's merely accompanying his aunt and uncle, Sara and Paul Lyons, on a free cruise. Little does he know that the two are the true targets of the charming Japanese tourist he has just met!
Akira knows that either Sara or Paul is the killer but doesn't know which one. She hopes seducing the handsome Devon will lead to better intel, but she is surprised to find herself trusting him. And soon, the pair finds themselves fighting for their lives on the high seas.

Overwhelmed with intrusions from a past filled with failure, Mary finds her professional practice beginning to crumble as she struggles to separate herself from who she once was. Once Upon a Time a Sparrow artfully weaves past and present into a fabric that reveals the dangers of denying the past, how our imperfections can make us whole, and the abundant possibility of transformation at any stage in life.

Eden: A Novel (3 Copies)

Becca Meister Fitzpatrick―wife, mother, grandmother, and pillar of the community―is the dutiful steward of her family’s iconic summer tradition . . . until she discovers her recently deceased husband squandered their nest egg. As she struggles to accept that this is likely her last season in Long Harbor, Becca is inspired by her granddaughter’s boldness in the face of impending single-motherhood, and summons the courage to reveal a secret she was forced to bury long ago: the existence of a daughter she gave up fifty years ago. The question now is how her other daughter, Rachel―with whom Becca has always had a strained relationship―will react.
Eden is the account of the days leading up to the Fourth of July weekend, as Becca prepares to disclose her secret and her son and brothers conspire to put the estate on the market, interwoven with the century-old history of Becca’s family―her parents’ beginnings and ascent into affluence, and her mother’s own secret struggles in the grand home her father named “Eden.”
