Book Description


When a jaded sheriff is drawn to an exasperating woman in trouble, anything can happen 

Laurel Thomas is tired of experiencing life from the outside looking in. She likes the warm welcome she's received in Tidal Falls and wants to make a home in this friendly little town, far away from her egocentric family. But when her uncle arrives, the past catches up to her. 

Jack Garrett is satisfied with his uncomplicated life. He has a good job as the sheriff of his hometown, a nice home, and a beautiful teenage daughter. Jack struggles against his attraction for the disorganized new hire at the department, Laurel Thomas. She threatens everything he's worked so hard to avoid—like falling in love. 

Can two people with enough emotional baggage to sink a ship find a way to give each other a chance, or is this match doomed to drown? 

Book Review

When Jared came and snagged up Sara from Jack in Book 3 of the Wounded Heart series I was feeling bad for the sheriff who just couldn't seem to catch a break. Then Laurel with the fantastic shoes and fashion sense gave me hope. As expected the fiery Laurel is in every way a match to the stern Jack. As he admits to himself life with her is not ever going to be boring.

Add in her rather colourful past with Uncle Mike and Jack's already complicated life with a teenage daughter in tow becomes even more complex. Can he get the Uncle and Lauren to trust him enough with their family troubles? Or will the person who was following Lauren end up hurting her as badly as he did her cousin?

Find out how it all goes down when you read this latest instalment in the Wounded Heart series from Tidal Falls.

Click Here to Get - The Tomb of Hercules (Wilde/Chase 2)

Book Description


An ancient warrior

For archaeologist Nina Wilde it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. Her studies of an ancient text have convinced her that a tomb containing the remains of legendary warrior Hercules may actually exist. If she can locate it, it will be the most important historical find ever to be unearthed.

An incredible treasure

As Nina and Eddie Chase, her ex-SAS bodyguard, begin their search it’s clear that others want to find the tomb – and the unimaginable riches contained within. Then Chase’s attention is diverted by the re-appearance of a face from his past...

Book Review


The discovery of Atlantis was kept a secret so as not to let out the details of the villain's plan to wipe out 98% of the earth's population with a biologically engineered plague. However Dr Nina Wilde is now in a new position of power at a multi nation funded agency. Right by her side is her former body guard and current boy friend Eddie Chase. They are still adjusting to regular office hours, in Eddie's case not so successfully, when they get plunged in to one more wild chase!

The book is not as much fun as The Hunt for Atlantis (Book 1 in the series), because there just seems to be scene after scene of action with no breathing space to build up the story. Still its living up to the masala movie standard and has the hero survive all kinds of odds to finally manage to rescue his love and realize that he wants something more permanent in the nature of the relationship.

Book Description

Following in the tradition of Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly, Andy McDermott takes us a roller-coaster ride in search of the legendary Atlantis.

Archaeologist Nina Wilde believes she has found the location of the lost city of Atlantis and now she wants the opportunity to prove her theory. Someone else though wants her dead! 

With the help of ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase and beautiful heiress Kari Frost, Nina faces a breakneck race against time around the world, pursued at every step by agents of the mysterious and murderous Brotherhood of Selasphoros. From the jungles of Brazil to the mountains of Tibet, from the streets of Manhattan to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, the hunt for Atlantis leads to a secret hidden for 11,000 years which in the wrong hands could destroy civilization as we know it...

Book Review 

If you enjoy movies where a whole lot of stuff gets blown up and the hero survives all odds to come out victorious in the end, you are going to love this book. While I was more interested in the Atlantis angle, and that was the original reason I picked up the book at the library, I was perfectly happy to go with the Crash, Bang and Flow of the story once I realized the masala novel it was.

Book Description


One kiss can change everything. Dulcie has had a secret crush on her co-worker Rowan for ages, but she’s too shy to let him know, and preoccupied with raising her rebellious teenage sister. When she bumps into him in the darkness of a haunted barn, she can't resist stealing just one kiss. 

That kiss enchants Rowan. If only he could figure out the identity of the woman whose kiss haunts him. While running from a troubled past, he may find that the woman he least suspects could lead him out of the dark forever. 

Book Review

Dulcie has been considered dull, uninspiring and run of the mill. The one thing that she is not considered is passionate, however an exciting turn of events helps her discover that when she is not paying too much attention to what the others will think, she can be quite passionate. An unexpected opportunity to kiss Rowan in the dark without him even knowing who it was is what it takes for her to discover this.

The trouble is that in the light of day she would never presume to be so bold. The quiet and sober reputation is so firmly in place that when Rowan wants to trace the identity of the mystery kisser he actually asks for her help to find the woman. There is just no way that he can ever connect Dulcie with that super hot kiss he shared in the dark.

So where does that leave our lovely Dulcie? Does she accept that this is how its always going to be, or does she do something about it? Find out when you read the story!

Get The Dalai Lama's Cat and the Art of Purring

Book Description

“What makes you purr? Of all the questions in the world, this is the most important. . . . . Because no matter whether you are a playful kitten or sedentary senior, whether you’re a scrawny alley Tom, or sleek-coated uptown girl, whatever your circumstances you just want to be happy. Not the kind of happy that comes and goes like a can of flaked tuna, but an enduring happiness. The deep down happiness that makes you purr from the heart.” His Holiness’s cat is back—older, a bit wiser, and as curious as ever. 

In this book, the Dalai Lama sets for his lovable feline companion the task of investigating The Art of Purring. Whether it’s the humorous insights gained from a visiting Ivy League Psychology Professor, the extraordinary research of a world-famous biologist, or the life-changing revelations of a mystical yogi, His Holiness’s Cat encounters a wealth of wisdom about happiness. And what she discovers changes the way she sees herself forever. With a much loved—and growing—cast of characters from the local community and His Holiness’s residence, as well as encounters with intriguing strangers and celebrities from far and wide, The Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring will transport readers in another unforgettable story. 

Along the way they will come to understand how elements of contemporary science and Buddhism converge. And, once again, they will feel the warmth of compassion and nonattachment that radiate from the heart of the Dalai Lama’s teachings about our quest for enduring happiness.

Book Review

This is a book that takes the story of His Holiness's Cat( HHC) further. We learn more about the characters we were introduced to in the previous book and of course each one teaches us a lesson. When the Dalai Lama leaves for an extended teaching tour, little Snow Lion is left with the mission to find out what makes her purr! Serena, Sam, Franc, Sid, Lobstang, Chogyal and a whole slew of characters continue to live lives around HHC and learn from mistakes of the past. Somewhere along the story you manage to pick up a whole lot of heavy philosophy without even realizing it. 

Beautifully written. Must read!
