Synopsis

The award-winning creator and screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Games of Thrones) brings you an action packed thrill-ride in her debut novel which will engage and excite fans of Maximum Ride, Dean Koontz's Watchers and The Last of Us.

It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.

Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.

Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.

But now Ellyn is a widow, back in Far Hills, Wyoming with her two young children, and having a tough time. And no matter what it costs him, Grif will do his duty. To the Army – and to help Ellyn and her children, while ignoring that he has never stopped wanting her.

Book 3: Hidden in a Heartbeat
Rebecca Dahlgren comes to Far Hills Ranch hoping for answers to her unknown heritage. But from the first moment, she finds foreman Luke Chandler hard to miss. The sexy cowboy with the sleepy eyes that aren't interested in sleeping means just the sort of trouble her patrician grandmother has always warned about.

Luke has his own reasons for wanting to steer clear of anything like commitment. But the secrets behind Rebecca’s dark eyes keep luring him on … even if it means baring his own heart.

Synopsis

From Karolina Robinson, Winner of the Centre of Excellence Awards 2017 - Creative Writing...

On one of those magically white winters nights, my mother took me in her arms and shut the doors behind her.
We left my drunken father in the name of a better life. And the name of that better life was Tom, a local gangster with the face of the devil himself.
The next thing I saw was my mother’s bloody face bashed into the ground and teeth scattered around her lifeless body.
I looked at him and thought to myself - PLEASE, DON'T KILL ME.

"The intensity, the drama and harsh reality will leave you gasping."


This story has haunted me all of my life, through the daily flashbacks and nightmares.
It has taken me some time to build up the courage to let this story out of my heart.
And now, with every single word I can live free.
Finally.

REVIEW
I have now enjoyed all of Anne Allen’s novels, and I’m becoming a big fan. She is a very ‘lively’ writer who seems to enjoy giving her readers a wonderful set of characters in a soft, almost velvety setting. Her books also offer a strong historical element, most often World War Two when the Germans invaded the island.
In the sixth novel in the set, Fiona and her twin brother, Nigel, discover hidden artwork in the walls of an antique shop. They attempt to discover whom it belonged to but, when Nigel ‘supposedly’ kills himself, Fiona attempts to discover the truth.

I must say that The Betrayal has a very different feel to it than the other novels in the set. The island is still lovingly described, the characters just as interesting and well developed, but the underlying mystery is so prominent in this story; in fact, in parts, it is almost a thriller. The pacing is faster right from the opening chapter with Teresa and Leo deciding whether to run from the invading Germans or not. And the ending is just as exciting. All in all, totally unputdownable!

To sum up, this is a wonderful novel, with tons of pace where pace is needed, and a setting so lovingly described, it is almost a character in the book. I am happy to recommend this story, in fact, all of them, to anybody who enjoys a well-plotted mystery populated with convincing and always credible characters.

Synopsis

In seventeenth-century London, thirteen years after the plague and twelve years after the Great Fire, the restoration of King Charles II has dulled the memory of Cromwell's puritan rule, yet fear and suspicion are rife. Religious turmoil is rarely far from tipping the scales into hysteria.

Elizabeth Cellier, a bold and outspoken midwife, regularly visits Newgate Prison to distribute alms to victims of religious persecution. There she falls in with the charming Captain Willoughby, a debtor, whom she enlists to gather information about crimes against prisoners, so she might involve herself in petitioning the king in their name.

"Tis a plot, Madam, of the direst sort.'

With these whispered words Willoughby draws Elizabeth unwittingly into the infamous Popish Plot and soon not even the fearful warnings of her husband, Pierre, can loosen her bond with it.

This is the incredible true story of one woman ahead of her time and her fight against prejudice and injustice.

Synopsis

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs wild in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such heinous acts? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? The action takes place in Jersey, Cornwall, Manchester, London and other places not of this world. Set in 2015, Random Bullets is a crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

If I tell you that I was disinherited by my crazy father, you might understand why I feel a degree of sympathy for Edward. I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on the subject of Inheritance. They’d heard that my book, Random Bullets, deals with the subject of disinheritance and its aftermath.

"Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn't put it down," "crime with a twist," "An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder," "Kinetic... really zips along at a pace, I was really drawn in" are just a few of the reader reviews that Random Bullets has received.

Random Bullets is available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook editions.

Synopsis

He sees what she's long hidden ... especially from herself.

Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.

After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:

Conscientious? Oh, yeah.
Intelligent? Absolutely.
Agreeable? Not so much.

Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious.

And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life as single parent to his three kids, scrape against his career as high school principal and -- oh, yes -- definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

... or is it?

Synopsis

(Prequel to Jack's Heart, Book 5 of the Wyoming Wildflowers series)

When his Irish eyes are smiling, she's in danger of losing her head ... and her heart.

Eleanor Thatcher refuses to be charmed by the Irish balladeer she hires to strum up business for her Gloucester, Mass., beach restaurant. She's far too practical for a workplace romance ... or to fall for a fantasy-spinner like Aidan Padraic Cahill McCrea. Yes, she feels his spell, but bitter reality has taught Eleanor that dreamers drift on, leaving heartache.

Cahill finds the woman he wants to share his future with in strong-minded, too-serious-for-her-own-good Eleanor. But he must convince her of his staying power. And his time to make her his bride is running out

Synopsis

It should have been a beautiful friendship.
Pat was always desperately shy, always scared of saying the wrong thing.
Then she met Johnny, and he did the talking. It was the 1970s, and he was a Liverpool docker. They were poor, but as long as Johnny was around Pat was happy.

Then came tragedy and she misses him more than she can say.
Now kids torment Pat, knocking on the door and running away.

She's hardly talked to a soul in years until a new neighbour arrives next door. Sixteen-year-old single mother, Mildie, is just as lonely as Pat.

Racial prejudice has turned Mildie's family against her - she is white, and her little boy's father was black.

Her family called him terrible names when they told her to go. She does her best to manage, but it's hard to cope when you're young and on your own.

She's terrified social services will take her son away. They both need a friend, but Pat makes a terrible mistake. She tries to give the little boy a present. It's just a little thing... she got it free with a pot of jam and can't understand why Mildie's so very upset.

Now Mildie thinks Pat's just like all the rest - the ones that call her names. The misunderstanding drives a wedge between them, and it's up to Pat to face her fears.Can she find the words to make it right?

Sweet Little Things is a nostalgic, heartwarming and sometimes heartbreaking story set in 1970s Liverpool. 

Not to be missed by readers of Lyn Andrews, Dilly Court and Kitty Neale.

Filled with nostalgia and hope this heartwarming story is a look back to gritty 1970s, Liverpool.

Synopsis

The Coach and the Professor
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English was hijacked the day she became academic adviser to the Ashton University men's basketball team. The hijacker was C.J. Draper, the team's infuriating, irreverent and sexy new coach.

C.J. has never let adversity stop him - if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting Professor Trent derail him. If he chose to rattle her ivory tower it was just for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . wasn't it?

When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, who will win?

Synopsis

Would your life unravel if someone you knew committed suicide? Theirs did.

Faye's heart still belongs to her first love, Jack. She knows he might have moved on, but when she decides to track him down, nothing prepares her for the news that he's taken his own life. Faye is left wondering how to move forward, and whether or not Ethan will let her down again.

And when she tells her friends, the news ripples through their lives too.

Abbie finds herself questioning her marriage - and wondering if she was right to leave her first love behind. Poor Olivia is juggling her job and her boyfriend with supporting her friends and trying to deal with a death of her own. And Jack's death has hit Beth the hardest - even though she never met him. Is she about to take her own life too?

While the four friends take it in turns to explain what happens after Jack's suicide, third-person flashbacks are skillfully interwoven to add a real richness and depth to this heart-wrenching story.

*Perfect for fans of Maggie O'Farrell, Elizabeth Strout, Patrick McGrath and Nathan Filer.*
