Rachel tests her deadsight on a suicide victim to see if he was actually murdered. Meawhile, Jet pays a visit to Louis for help in finding her "go-to guy."
She never thought she’d see him again…this is a second chance sports romance and first book in the Wild Men Series. Sky Colton Wild isn’t just the famous football player everyone sees on their television screen.
I met Colton one summer vacation when we lined up on opposite sides of a flag football field. He was the cocky kid with clear blue eyes and a constant smirk. When he picked me up over his shoulder and ran with me the length of the field, I wanted to hate him.
But somehow we were the last two left around the campfire that night. We talked for hours under the stars. And when he kissed me, I didn’t want him to stop.
The next morning, I left. I thought I’d never see him again. And for ten years, I didn’t. Colton Sky Rosewood was the one that got away, the fiery redhead with a temper to match. It felt like way more than a teenage crush, but what did I know back then? Plus she gave me a fake phone number, not to mention a false last name. I tried everything to find her, but it was like she’d disappeared into the ethers. Ten years later, I’m out for my morning beach run and I crash into…Sky Rosewood, just before she gets knocked out by an errant wave. I try to be a gentleman and give her mouth to mouth, but she comes to and tells me off, her temper still intact. And so is my crush. Except now Sky’s a woman. A beautiful woman who agrees to give me the right number this time.
I’ve got my second chance with the woman I never forgot, and there’s no way I’m letting her get away again.
Turns out I shouldn’t have been so cocky…
Five-year-old Joaquin isn't supposed to know anything about the world outside the protected environment where he has been reared. His mother is determined to insulate him from the clashes that took his father's life. But then his father's adoptive parent [note: ADOPTIVE parent, not an ADOPTED parent], Abdullah, enters his life. Later, Joaquin learns that his brilliant geography and history tutor, Senor De Guzman, is a converso; many conversos were Jews who were forcibly converted to Christianity. Joaquin discovers that the world he lives in is unsafe for anyone who is different. As time passes, Joaquin finds himself caught between faiths-the very fate that his mother feared, because the Inquisition does not tolerate dissension. Set in Spain starting at 1505 and continues as Joaquin matures, STOLEN FAITH is the sequel to STOLEN PEACE."

As a young man growing up near Valley, Nebraska, I dreamed of wild adventures and living “on the edge.” In simple journals, I recorded my thoughts and wild imaginings. As life provided new experiences, I captured my world through photography and words. Later in life, my wife and family encouraged me to share my tales of the North with others who share my enthusiasm for living big.In my book “Talkeetna Good Time,” I open up my heart and reveal intimate musings of a young boy determined to become a pilot and push beyond the expected. I married a young woman willing to accompany me on this amazing and often perilous journey. After a few years in the Canadian North, I moved my young family to a small bush community in Alaska.Most of the stories tell of ‘bigger than life” Alaskan characters that dwell in simple structures and endure unimaginable hardships to put down roots in the frigid land they love.
I will ever be grateful to the hearty folk who have become part of my story. As life itself, I share the humorous, the exultant, the threatening, and the utterly depressing.Dear to my heart are the wonderful creatures that roam the north. “Mary’s Bear” and “Don Got My Goat” are accounts of some of my encounters with nature’s bounty. My heart still remembers with fondness the cold nights with “shimmering ribbons of blue, green, and red that form a gigantic curtain, pulled across the lake by the hand of God.” Be careful as you read or you, too, may become infected with the “Alaska disease.”
The Barnes & Noble Review January 1998 Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa is the story of Peter Godwin's experiences growing up in Rhodesia. He recounts the story of that country's violent transformation into Zimbabwe, as well as his own personal metamorphoses from privileged boy to reluctant soldier to investigative journalist.
Godwin's story begins, "I think I first realized something was wrong when our next door neighbor, Oom Piet Oberholzer, was murdered. I must have been about five then. It was still five years before the real war would start." The Godwins enjoyed a typical genteel existence in 1960 rural Rhodesia, their household including a "garden boy," a "cook boy," and a nanny. Peter's father managed a wood- and sugarcane-processing plant. His mother, a rural government doctor, was often called to pronounce deaths or conduct autopsies, for which she brought along her "assistant," five-year-old Peter, who was responsible for shooing away the flies. Godwin's plans for attending college were squashed when he was drafted into the Rhodesian army and assigned to the "Anti-Terrorist Unit," which proved to be an important experience in his life. When he later looked at himself, he saw a man "coursed through with anger and despair. It was the face of someone who would kill an unarmed civilian for withholding information." Disturbed by what he had become, Godwin left Rhodesia after he got out of the army, only to return in 1981 as a journalist. Rhodesia was now Zimbabwe, and the "terrorists" he had reluctantly fought against were now the country's rulers. Godwin reported on theutterbrutalities in Zimbabwe and the fate of Matabeleland, a black minority region in Zimbabwe.
He described the army style of interrogation, in which "before they even began to question you, they would break one wrist," and wrote about the old mines where bodies of the dead were buried.
When Godwin's writings received worldwide attention, the Zimbabwean government tried to discredit him, and he received numerous death threats, escaping the country just hours before the police came looking for him. Mukiwa is not only a memoir but also a compelling adventure story that tells a personal saga that needs to be heard.
