Announcement from KG MacGregor –

I’m excited to announce the return of Anna & Lily in Without Warning, the first book in The Shaken Series. If you’ve been following my blog, you already know that Bella Books is bringing back the stories of Shaken, Stirred & Strained, all under individual covers with new and expanded scenes. Please visit the Book Page at my website to read the synopsis, the Xenaverse inspiration for these stories and Chapter 1.
Book Description
On a day that begins like any other, a violent earthquake strikes Los Angeles, plunging the region into chaos. Two strangers, trapped in a collapsed shopping mall, find each other amid the rubble and join forces to escape. Hampered by injury and darkness, they dig their way through one crumbled store after another, emerging long after most have given up hope for survivors.
The ordeal leaves both women shaken, but their shared triumph sets them on a life-changing course, igniting a connection like neither has ever known. Anna Kaklis, whose perfectly planned life never included falling in love with another woman, is thrown for a loop, but she doesn’t doubt her heart. Lily Stewart, abandoned too many times by people she trusted, won’t let herself believe that Anna’s love will endure. Without Warning is the story of their courageous journey through adversity and their promise of steadfast love.

Redback by Lindy Cameron

Tribal warlords or multinational warmongers; insurgents or terrorists; politicians or rebels; the only real differences are scale, ideology, and how close they get to the action. After rescuing hostages from a Pacific Island, the Redbacks – a team of Australian retrieval agents led by Commander Bryn Gideon – stumble across the explosive plans of new terrorist group Atarsa Kára.

US journalist Scott Dreher’s story on computer game training for real war reveals disturbing links between his government and known terrorists; Ashraf Majid leads his first mission for Atarsa Kára; and an assassin dispatches people on his hit list.

Gideon and Scott uncover the connections between these incidents and a mysterious international group with no common political or religious affiliations. And when they finally join forces it’s a race against time to unravel a crazy conspiracy to ...Well, it’s enough to say that these new bad guys have no problem playing both sides of the terror divide against each other.

I can’t rave enough about this book. Redback is comprehensively imagined, packed with incident and detail, and is more absorbing and more vividly written than most of its ilk.

Redback is the new espionage thriller by the author of Golden Relic and the Kit O’Malley mysteries (Bywater Books USA).

Lindy Cameron is contributing editor of the true crime anthology Meaner Than Fiction; and co-author,
with Fin J Ross, of the forthcoming Killer in the Family (Five Mile Press).

This is a two story odyssey about the lives of four women who are inextricably linked and how they fight their own personal demons to find the strength to love. A curious mix of intrigue, deception and finally understanding follow all four.


Lauren Walker and Maggie Sullivan meet in a quiet lakeside vacation point and have a spontaneous attraction to each other that sparks immediately. The speed of their romance is only superseded by the pace of events that crashes around them.


Tragedy appears to be the middle name of Harriet Aristides, and she wears the glove so well it is hard to believe she will ever be truly happy again, after a terrible accident robs of her of the woman she loves. Corporate intrigue and the promise of wonderful discoveries, however make up the rest of her life. Incredibly she enters the unknown realm of a field trip into the jungles of South America with a small team of people who work for her.


Nichola (Nicky) Ralston has a personal secret of her own, which if it came to light, would dramatically change the way that Harriet views their friendship. As they become close in the confines of the jungle, Nicky sets about innocently to change the way Harriet looks at life and leads her back to a place where she can love again.


As things begin to change in Harriet’s world, a situation insidiously enters her life. Drawing her and Nicky’s, lives to that of Lauren and Maggie, will she allow herself to forgive and forget?

The citizens of Sweetwater are planning the marriage of two of their own, a valley rancher/business owner and the town's schoolteacher.

Jesse Branson and Jennifer Kensington, thinking they have already experienced the worst life can offer, find them- selves facing new and unexpected threats to their happiness.

While Jesse and Jennifer fight to save each other and defend their love, the town of Sweetwater faces its own threats from Eastern developers that see the town as nothing more than a means to a profitable end. Will Jesse and Jennifer again prove that their love is stronger than those who have vowed to destroy it? Will they show they have what it takes to survive and build a life together on the frontier? And what of the town they now call home? Will Sweetwater remain the amiable town they enjoy or will it be ruined by outsiders in search of quick riches?

Where Shadows Linger - Sequel to In the Blood of the Greeks!
Book #2 in the Eva and Zoe Series

By MaryD

Boy, this has been a difficult and long drawn out birth but Where Shadows Linger will be available in a few weeks - it's gone to the printers! I'm very excited and proud of this novel. It picks up a year after Eva and Zoe emigrate to Australia. It wasn't just the refugees that had a tough time in this novel; the author got a good workout as well through various Herculean trials and tribulations - this truly has been a blood, sweat and tears job but it's been worth it. I hope you all enjoy it as well. As I mentioned yesterday if you are going to the Burbank con, you can pick up a copy at the Bard's Banquet. And if you don't have the first novel "In the Blood of the Greeks", that will be there as well. Cover art is by Calli and artwork of Eva and Zoe was drawn by Lucia Nobrega.

The mini synopsis:

Having survived Nazi-occupied Greece and the liberation, Eva Muller and Zoe Lambros are still very much in love, wanting nothing more than to fulfill their dreams and hopes for the future. Emigrating to Sydney, Australia, the two women find themselves making new friends and forging a new life together. However, it is not long before their happiness is marred by prejudice, and the machinations of old enemies that plunge them into mortal danger. Will their unique connection be destroyed? Will they lose their new-found friends? Or will Eva and Zoe's love prove strong enough to overcome the shadows of the past that continue to linger in their lives?
