Gabriella By: Alan Hardy http://www.amazon.com/Gabriella-ebook/dp/B009H7SCMA/ref=sr_1_1? ie=UTF8

LOVE AND PASSION ON A CRICKET FIELD?! IT'S A WICKET WICKET TALE!! Have you ever imagined what a story would be like that combines romance and a game of cricket? Well, imagine no more, and read 'Gabriella'. This is 'Roman de la Rose' updated from medieval France to present-day England. No longer a question of plucking roses, or even stealing cherries, but more of whipping off bails and knocking stumps over. You’ll love this bawdy, comic account of love and sex during a cricket match, where red balls, long-handled bats and probing deliveries are ideal metaphors for the game of love. This is a game of cricket played in a way you’ve never seen before. Watch the love contest between Gabriella, the aristocratic hot totty, and Jim, the virginal working-class rebel. Read of Jim’s balls smashing against Gabriella’s body and rearing up between her legs as she pads up and tries to fight off his probing deliveries. Thrill to Jim’s vicious balls divesting Gabriella of her sexy clothing until she stands defiant in her naked and beautiful glory. Read spellbound as Gabriella comes close to losing Jim to a rival. Find out the truth about Gabriella’s parentage. Follow Jim and Gabriella with ball and bat as they play out cricket’s equivalent of sexual intercourse. Will Jim and Gabriella live happily ever after, or will someone destroy Gabriella’s plans?

In Jen's Words By: Jennifer Brown http://www.amazon.com/In-Jens-Words-ebook/dp/B007S2743O

Jennifer and Justin Barnes have been raised by their older brother Jacob since they were teenagers…little did Jacob know, he was raising a third personality as well. The Barnes have been through it all. The loss of their parents in a car crash, rape, and incarceration. But nothing could prepare them for what they are about to deal with. When Jacob decides to run for mayor of Springwood, Ohio someone else decides to haunt him and his family, using his younger sister’s alter personality as leverage in their game. After Jen’s mental disorder is made public, the first of many shocking revelations are made, including who her biological father really is. She is ordered into custody in the mental health wing of Springwood Memorial as a case is built against her for the murder of Davis Cauley, a former local news anchor. Jacob gets his sister released in time for the holidays, only for another murder to occur. The body of Brenda Sowers, Davis Cauley’s sister is found in Mercy Park, the same area where her brother was found—in a storage shed, with hedge clippers in his back, and Jen across from him with no memory of what happened. More incriminating evidence links Jen to Brenda’s murder, as Black Friday looms. The big weekend draws Jacob to the mall, where he’s in for another surprise. A photo of his brother sent to his phone reveals another huge secret, involving all of Springwood. As the Barnes recover from what has been a very turbulent Fall, other secrets are lurking and waiting to be revealed as a family faces a trial of issues to come.

Also as a holiday treat keep your eyes out for Tis The Season to get Burned coming out in time for Christmas.

But the firm is struggling to survive amidst the turmoil and media attention surrounding the shocking arrest and upcoming murder trial of Olin. And Audra must face the fallout left from her explosive revenge while trying to heal and recover from the trauma of her past. Audra thought she had ended the evil lurking within and that her revenge would set her free. Unfortunately, it's only the beginning. Because evil never dies, it only assumes a new form.

Welcome to Audra Tanner's personal hell. She had heard the rumors about her employer. The whispered secrets. But she had thrown herself into work to escape the pain of her miscarriage and demise of her marriage. Idealistic, she thought if she worked hard she would be rewarded. She thought wrong. Savagely initiated into the brutal underbelly of the firm, Audra learns too late that the rumors are true. Now after five years of careful plotting, Audra is ready to push the wheels of justice in motion. Her goal of retribution has turned into an obsession and she will stop at nothing until everyone responsible pays.

Title: Bertha and Tillie Sisters Forever Published by Fedelli not sure about the exact date Author: Fran Lewis http://www.fidelipublishing.com/

Bertha, a thirteen year old teenage girl living in the South Bronx, is having trouble dealing with everyday issues that children face in school and just growing up. She is uncoordinated, not very pretty, and has trouble doing any physical activities. Bertha has a sister named Tillie who is very pretty, very agile, and has no problem making friends or doing all of the things that Bertha cannot do. They are total opposites. Tillie and many of Bertha’s cousins enjoy laughing at her when she tries to ice skate, take dancing lessons, or even bowl. Bertha attempts to do all of these things, but can not. However, she is smart, sassy, and has a great sense of humor, which helps her to deal with these experiences and others. Growing up can be difficult when you are overweight or not really good at sports or dancing. I hope you will learn from reading my book that you can be anything that you want to be, and no one can stop you from reaching your goals and dreams. Not everyone is born athletic, beautiful, thin or a genius. However, everyone is smart or excellent at something, whether it is drawing, jumping rope, or even running track. Who you are as a person is what makes you special. I hope that you enjoy reading about Bertha and Tillie and learn that there is a little bit of Bertha in everyone.
