Drowning By Numbers

Drowning By Numbers

It's 1994. Blur and Oasis are in the charts. New Labour are on the near horizon. Ladbroke Grove is the place, a thriving hub of art, music and cultural diversity.

Emerging from the wreckage of another lost weekend, Indie Guitarist of the Year, Joe E Byron, hurries home on the Tube to face the consequences of his actions. Ten years on the road has taken its toll. He should be spending more time with Justine and the kids. Instead, he's restless, angry, and in conflict with his manager and the rest of the band. Dark habits threaten his marriage and career. The curse of addiction that will rob him of everything. And at the heart of it all, a yearning to be free, to take off and never come back.

But that can't happen. There's too much at stake.

Besides,

He's a god.<

He's a legend.

And the only thing worse than dying is the prospect of fading away. More info →

Jazz Baby

Jazz Baby

While all of Mississippi bakes in the scorching summer of 1925, sudden orphanhood wraps its icy embrace around Emily Ann "Baby" Teegarten, a pretty young teen.

Taken in by an aunt bent on ridding herself of this unexpected burden, Baby Teegarten plots her escape using the only means at her disposal: a voice that brings church ladies to righteous tears, and makes both angels and devils take notice. "I'm going to New York City to sing jazz," she brags to anybody who'll listen. But the Big Apple--well, it's an awful long way from that dry patch of earth she'd always called home.

So when the smoky stages of New Orleans speakeasies give a whistle, offering all sorts of shortcuts, Emily Ann soon learns it's the whorehouses and opium dens that can sidetrack a girl and dim a spotlight...and knowing the wrong people can snuff it out.

Jazz Baby just wants to sing--not fight to stay alive. More info →

Two Thousand Years

Two Thousand Years

"Women half Abigail’s age would envy her body - a body fitting a star athlete, a Hollywood actress, or a young lady desired by scandalous politicians. Her face showed depth of character, a result of more sorrow but also more joy than most of us could handle. And her hair. The breathtaking auburn curls remained, and though there may have been isolated streaks of gray throughout the voluminous strands, I found it impossible to not picture Christopher Dean playing with the curls in a café in Vienna, and Sergei Grinkov unknowingly causing pain, but more importantly comfort, as he caressed her hair after the attack by Ted Kennedy. And I couldn’t help but visualize John Kennedy’s jaw dropping to the floor when he saw her for the first time in so long, gorgeous in a purple dress, hair down though she so often wore it up. Some things I envisioned had occurred, others had not. But they were all unmistakably Abigail Phelps."

Abigail Phelps and John Kennedy Jr. weren't destined to live happily ever after. In this, the dramatic conclusion to the Abigail Phelps Series, we learn that there is something even better than a fairy tale ending. Sometimes it's better to have no ending at all.

"How do you know your heart is still beating? Do you have to see it or feel it to know? No, you just know. You know because you live. Well, Abby is my heart and I'm hers. We just know."

Scenes From Highland Falls

"I knew that Senator Kennedy would not accept defeat. He would not step aside and allow his horrible error to be a wake-up call. He would not reach out to me and suggest we put our bitter feud behind us. He would try again, for Kennedy men do not give up. They don't give up on their dreams of the White House, they don't give up once they decide they want to spend their lives with the woman they love, and they don't give up until they've gotten rid of anything standing in their way."

The delusions of a woman detached from reality? Or the scandalous, well-kept secrets of the greatest love story the world has never known? In the second installment of the Abigail Phelps Series, Abigail's stories become even more difficult to believe, and absolutely impossible to deny.

I’ve Loved These Days

"The very first time you met me you knew that he would never be the same again, didn't you? For the record, I was never the same again either. And while times have changed and opportunities have been lost, I still know in my heart of hearts that I never will be. But we can't go back, and we can't undo. What's more, I don't really want to. While my life is not perfect, it is uniquely, ridiculously mine, and I would not trade it." Abigail Phelps has written her memoirs, but the world has never heard of her. So why should anyone care?

Perhaps no one would, if the letter in which Abigail reflects on changing times and lost opportunities weren't addressed to Jacqueline Onassis, and the man who would never be the same weren't John F.

Summoned to the court of Les Baux, Estela and her lover, Dragonetz, are embroiled in two rival claims for power as their feuding liege lords gather in Provence. Although Estela is reluctant to leave her idyll with her young child Musca, and her pursuit of Arabic medicine, she welcomes the chance to show her musical skills and to support Dragonetz, who must use his swordsmanship to play peacemaker.

The visit of the Comte de Barcelone to Les Baux sparks bitter memories of the recent civil war and Lady Etiennette des Baux has no intention of ceding to her overlord. Nor does she plan to remain a widow. With good friends on both sides, Dragonetz weaves a precarious path through the rival factions at court where an uneasy truce prevails behind the chivalry of hunt and tournament.

Meanwhile, Estela faces her own demons. Confronted with her childhood abusers, threatened and attacked, she confides in her friends. Unfortunately, one of those friends is Dragonetz' worst enemy and Estela has no idea of what he is capable.

In this third volume of the Troubadours Quartet, Jean Gill, the 'master of historical intrigue', continues to weave the gripping adventures of Dragonetz and Estela seamlessly into real historical events.

The Jade Buddha

It is Hong Kong in the nineteen eighties. The British Crown Colony is on the verge of reverting to Chinese rule.

Life is hectic but tentative; there are fears for the future.

The governments of Hong Kong and the United Kingdom are doing all they can to calm local nerves while at the same time pressing Beijing’s rulers to the north for assurances that the rule of law will be maintained. Beneath the surface other forces are at work; criminal forces dating back centuries but still very much alive.

There is a triad war, a war where the winner will amass great power. Some triad gangs are opportunistic small time pimps and extortionists. Others are extremely well organised and control exceptionally high-value narcotics and other illicit business interests. And they are notoriously brutal to their enemies.

The agencies of law enforcement are involved not just in Hong Kong but across the globe. So too is Simon Garrett; unintentionally but intimately involved. Where not only his life is at stake but others who are dear to him.

Their futures are being controlled by a shadowy gangster who will stop at nothing to get what he wants; a green jade Buddha of immense symbolic power.

A Duchess Enraged

A Duchess Enraged

It's 18th century London, where an Earl loses a vast sum of money to his good friend, a Duke. To settle the debt, the Earl suggests that he marry his fourteen year old daughter to the Duke’s twenty-one year old son. The marriage takes place the next morning. She is terrified, and he is furious. Calling her an ugly dowd, he leaves immediately after the ceremony on the Grand Tour and does not return for four years.

When he returns, two adults who have barely met, and don’t even recognize each other must build a marriage. Can these two strong and determined personalities learn to overcome the resentments of the past, and convert the misunderstandings of the present into a passionate love affair on which they can build a life?

If you love a sexy romance this version is definitely for you! I guarantee, you'll never look at a library in quite the same way again. If you like sweet romance with NO sex, please buy "A Most Unusual Situation", the "Traditional" (sweet, no sex) version of the same story.

The novel is based on actual history, that of the Earl of March and Lady Sarah Cadogan. The historical details can be found in my blog at AHeyerLove.com. The Earl of Cadogan did marry his daughter, Lady Sarah Cadogan, to the Duke of Richmond’s son, the Earl of March, sight unseen as a way of settling an enormous gambling debt he owed the Duke.

They were married the day after the agreement was made, and the infuriated Earl of March departed on his Grand Tour immediately thereafter, not to return for four years. You can read the details on my blog, http://www.aheyerlove.com/blog/.

Because I like ladies with ships on their heads (see my blog also), I placed the costumes a few decades later in the 18th century, but attitudes towards marriage and the Grand Tour changed relatively little in that time. More info →

A Lady of Passion is my "After Dark" version of the The Secret Bluestocking. The stories are nearly identical, but A Lady of Passion is rewritten slightly to allow Isobel and Francis' relationship to have a strong physical component.

What would you do if you were intelligent, independent, wealthy and had an interest in archaeology? If you're the Honorable Miss Isobel Paley, you do as you please, but you would keep it as your most guarded secret.

Isobel's story is set in a time of social change, after Mary Wollstonecraft published her famous "A Vindication on the Rights of Woman," positing (correctly, of course!) that women were not inferior to men. Even so, Society hadn't yet changed to the degree that a free-thinking woman of means could be open about her "unseemly" interests.

Isobel happily pursues her intellectual (and other) passions without a care for marriage. She's perfectly capable of tending to her own life as a trendsetter in fashion during the Season and an archaeologist in Scotland during the summer. Marriage, she believes, is only the surrender of her legal identity, independence and fortune to the whims of a man. Further, celibacy, to Isobel, is a waste of youth.

Then an accident outside her country estate brings Major Lord Francis Wheaton into her life and her home. Lord Francis, recently back from the Peninsular Wars, must convalesce at Isobel's manor, being too injured to travel.

What follows is the tale of two strong-willed individuals, both harboring secrets of their own, and their undeniable attraction to one another. Will Isobel succeed in keeping her secret? Will Lord Francis find what he needs? And just who is the mysterious Marcus Paley? More info →

Invigilator

Invigilator

A Tennessee teen in the mid-1990s, Eugene Weisman enjoys pretending to defend a so-called “alien”—until the game turns deadly and his life depends on what others believe.

Hand-picked to helm Program Invigil, Colonel Chester McGovern takes responsibility for detection, isolation, and eradication—then unleashes enormous inter-military power cloaked in black-helicopter secrecy.

Tiring of the clandestine wet-work biz, soldier of fortune Flynn Durbett settles down to run a weapons-smuggling ring for governments and underground patriots—but then old obligations renew, and his own opinions matter less than standing up for others’.

As Eugene attracts followers who declare him the true savior, McGovern lays siege to American citizens while searching for the missing black box in his obsessive mission to preserve life as we know it.

Do we really need to be protected? And who will deliver us?—the military, or a loosely organized rag-tag militia? Is it all fantasy, or a threat greater than we ever imagined?

Everybody has the right to believe, but only one can be the Invigilator.

The Yuletide Countess

The Yuletide Countess

Harriet Walcott, companion of Miss Isobel Paley (from The Secret Bluestocking), is the perfect example of a spinster: past the usual age of marriage and content to spend her days with her needlework and her painting, without a hope for love. Her fondness for her family, along with her ability to find joy in everything, endears her to most who know her.

On her annual sojourn with Isobel to Ballydendargan, Scotland, Harriet finds more than the peace and quiet of the countryside. She meets Miss Catherine Dalburn, governess to Lord Glencairn’s two children as well as the children themselves. The two women form a friendship and Harriet grows fond of the children.

While Isobel pursues her “secret bluestocking” interests and Lord Francis Wheaton arrives in Ballydendargan to continue his pursuit of Isobel’s heart, Harriet finally meets Lord Glencairn. A dashingly handsome man in his later years with twinkling blue eyes and beautiful white hair, he and Harriet become fast friends, united in their desire to see Isobel and Lord Francis finally admit their feelings for each other and marry.

Fate has a surprise in store for Harriet, who has long thought herself “on the shelf.” Are her feelings for Lord Glencairn more than friendship? Can he possibly feel the same for her, especially since he all but disappeared from polite society after his wife’s death ten years before?

The Yuletide Countess is a “co-quel” or “side-car” to The Secret Bluestocking/A Lady of Passion, in that the much of it happens in parallel with the other books. However, the point of view is strictly Harriet’s. More info →

Eye of a Fly

Eye of a Fly

Short description: Raised by slum-dwelling alcoholics, an autistic teen struggles to complete college and woo a handicapped girl—with bittersweet results.

Longer description: Eye of a Fly is a novel of tragedy and redemption with a cast of characters that includes:

* Ernest Wentworth, a profoundly introverted boy who inhabits a world of mathematics and music. *

Tiffany, his innocent younger sister whose friends practice voodoo.

* Warren, Ernest's talented but learning-disabled younger brother whose suicide triggers the novel's finale.

* Harry, Ernest's father. A former Hollywood screen writer, he has always dreamed of drinking hard, seeing the world, and writing like Hemingway—but only succeeded at the first.

* Annie, a handicapped but radiant girl who draws Ernest out of his shell.

***

JD Salinger for the New Millenium.

A brutal delight written with the compassion and wisdom of the greats, Eye of a Fly by Justin R Smith is one of my favorite books by a living author.

Written in simple, honest and accessible poetic language, it goes right to the reader’s heart. There is so much more to this story than the description would suggest. A truly beautiful transcendent reading experience cleverly disguised as a sincere and heartfelt urban coming of age tale, it is, in fact a journey into the heart of redemption of the human spirit.

And even being at times a real tear-jerker, the book has humorously slapstick moments which are so rude and outright funny, I nearly s**t my pants laughing. The scene at the butcher’s counter at the corner grocery store is one of those hilariously surreal literary memories that I will doubtless take with me to the grave — and quite probably beyond. Justin Smith with this splendid new book has earned himself a place as the new millennium's answer to JD Salinger. Bravo!

The Lyncis Optima Concordat

The Lyncis Optima Concordat

The Dinarians are the bearers of two incredible gifts. It was they who first gained the ability to traverse space. As they did so, they became aware of the fact that every heavenly body, whether it be star or planet, has its own unique gravitational signature - its cosmic fingerprint, so to speak. This knowledge prompted them to depart from the use of propulsion and the vast amounts of fuel expended in travel. Each of these signatures would become the means of moving from point to point. If that signature is selected, a craft is drawn there based upon the signature without the use propulsion. As they continued to map the Lynx region of space they were able to continually expand their familiarity with the whole of the region. At the same time they observed, from a distance, those other races who would soon gain the ability to leave the surface of their worlds - to take flight. These fledgling races, upon doing so, were approached by the Dinarians with an outstretched hand of friendship. Over time, a number of different worlds gained the ability to travel space and others would also follow. The Dinarians decided that something would be needed to prevent any of the travelers from ever encroaching upon or taking advantage of any of the others. An agreement was formed and all who joined were given the secret to the Dinarians’ expertise and knowledge of the region. That is the first of the two gifts. The second is the impressive station where member worlds convene. The Lyncis Optima is the jewel of the galaxy. It was built as a gift to those member worlds and the Dinarians are the perpetual hosts. For millennia it has served and those who maintain it are privileged to do so. In circuit it visits the homes of its members and the ambassadors convene in the Great Chamber which is positioned at the nucleus of the station. Together they make up “The Lyncis Optima Concordat”.

Neil expects professional development when he steps into Anne's shoes to teach in France. What he finds is passion. For one man, Luc, and for Alsace itself. Can he ever go back? And should he? When Neil and Anne swap lives for a year, they both find that there is more than one kind of love.

'More than One Kind of Love' challenges conventional views of family and responsibilities, making us question what risks we would take, and which relationships matter most, when tough choices have to be made.

For fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Kristin Hannah, Hilary Boyd.

From Larcombe Manor, Phoenix and Athena have battles to win against vicious gangsters on home soil and urgently need to identify factions within the organization plotting to take it in a different, far more sinister direction.

Will Billy keep his promise and find the letters in time, or will A lose her friends forever?

Billy wants adventures--and Holy Jotter, does he get them!

Mark Kelly, National School Principal:

"Fanpenciltastic sparkles with wit and humour, artfully smuggling the learning of words into a beautiful story of a pencil on a quest. Billy the Pencil is a character that children will love, bursting with energy, helping whoever he meets as he journeys through the world. The quality of Tessa's writing is matched by the gorgeous illustrations that stud the story. Very impressive indeed. My nine-year-old loved it."

The Little Giants as the Mysterious Six in the Tangled Case of the Ghastly Chicken Yegg (Volume 1)

The Little Giants as the Mysterious Six in the Tangled Case of the Ghastly Chicken Yegg (Volume 1)

What if what you thought was just another mystery to solve ended up being something far more important that you ever dreamed—far bigger than your mind could ever imagine? What if the King Himself, Jesus Christ, were involved in your every waking moment and leading you into incredible adventures and exploits for His glory? Well, that’s just what’s going on as the Savior helps this group of young sleuthers solve the mystery of Robyn’s disappearing chickens. He calls them His Little Giants, for that’s what they are—His powerful warriors in ‘little people suits’ who are unknowingly following His lead every step of the way. The story involves five ten-year-olds who belong to a detectives’ club and find themselves working on a new case involving missing chickens. The club is comprised of Bailey, the brainiac, who likes to read the dictionary, Jack, the gallant—who eats like a horse, Emily, the rich girl with freckles and pedicures, Dexter, the gifted maladroit and Robyn, the lover of all God’s creatures. They ‘accidently’ run into Oliver, a new kid from Great Britain who talks weird and thinks of himself as brilliant. Eventually, they invite him to try passing a test to be able to join their club. The test? Solve the mystery! They find themselves in life-threatening situations like thunderstorms, dark caves, dealing with Edgar the Terrible and having to approach the crazy man who’s rumored to eat children. While the group works out the mystery of the missing chickens, they’re also working out the issues of trust, judging and grace. Trust, by asking God for His divine intervention, judging, by listening to rumors and jumping to the wrong conclusions. And grace, by putting it into practice with Oliver, who they try not to gobsmack on a regular basis for being such a know-it-all. Mysteries abound as Jesus’ Little Giants follow His lead as they introduce the little lost British lamb to the King and uncover far more than they had bargained for! More info →
