The Pride of Bergenville by Michael Roblin

Enter for your chance to win 1 of 20 copies of The Pride of Bergenville: A Comedy of Errors.

The “Pride of Bergenville” is missing!

The year is 1821 and Elysse Abbing is one of the most beautiful women the world has ever seen. Maybe not number one, but certainly in the top five. So lovely that her village has bestowed upon her the nickname “the Pride of Bergenville”. Her horse, Arabella, is also magnificent to the eye.

On the same night, a young woman is kidnapped, another disappears, and Arabella is stolen.

The bumbling Sobey brothers have the horse. Their friend, Jack, has the kidnapped girl, believed to be the daughter of the wealthiest man in the county. Hopes for career changing ransoms are high but seemingly foolproof plans have proved anything but in their execution.

The Pride of Bergenville is a laugh out loud tale of mistaken identities, hidden trails, a lost cabin, a horse theft, a girl theft, an escape, another kidnapping, a jail break, a possible group hanging, and a large man known as the “Bull of the Woods”.

Will the ransoms be paid? Will the captives be safely returned? Will Jack and the brothers avoid prison terms, or worse, hanging for their actions? Read this classic comedy of errors to find out.

Summer on the Bluffs by Sunny Hostin

No PO Boxes.

Enter for your chance to win 1 of 100 Advance Reader's Editions of SUMMER ON THE BLUFFS, the literary debut of Emmy Award winner, renowned lawyer and journalist, and View cohost Sunny Hostin!

Welcome to Oak Bluffs, the most exclusive black beach community in the country. Known for its gingerbread Victorian-style houses and modern architectural marvels, this picturesque town hugging the sea is a mecca for the crème de la crème of black society.

Every summer, Esperenza “Perry” Soto, a beautiful and talented Afro-Latina lawyer, escapes the fetid heat of New York City for the gorgeous weather, cool water, and stunning views Oak Bluffs offers. Sharing a cottage on the beach, owned by her “Ama”, with her husband and two god sisters, Perry is looking forward to trading meetings and clients for days of languor and fun.

When Memorial Day arrives and the season begins, some of the nation’s wealthiest, most powerful, and famous from the worlds of politics, art, and entertainment meet to swim, dance, party, and chill. While a few can’t leave work behind, others indulge in a different kind of business affair.

But this summer on the Bluffs is different. Ama is going to give the house to one of her goddaughters and she has invited all three of them to spend the summer with her the way they did when they were kids. Each of the women want the house desperately. Each is grappling with a secret that they fear will make them lose Ama’s approval and the house...

Fortune Favors the Dead by Stephen Spotswood

*GALLEY GIVEAWAY*

Introducing Pentecost and Parker, two unconventional female detectives who could care less about playing by the rules, in their cases and in their lives.

It's 1942 and Willowjean "Will" Parker is a scrappy circus runaway whose knife-throwing skills have just saved the life of New York's best, and most unorthodox, private investigator, Lillian Pentecost. When the dapper detective summons Will a few days later, she doesn't expect to be offered a life-changing proposition: Lillian's multiple sclerosis means she can't keep up with her old case load alone, so she wants to hire Will to be her right-hand woman. In return, Will will receive a salary, room and board, and training in Lillian's very particular art of investigation.
Three years later, Will and Lillian are on the Collins case: Abigail Collins was found bludgeoned to death with a crystal ball following a big, boozy Halloween party at her home--her body slumped in the same chair where her steel magnate husband shot himself the year before. With rumors flying that Abigail was bumped off by the vengeful spirit of her husband (who else could have gotten inside the locked room?), the family has tasked the detectives with finding answers where the police have failed. But that's easier said than done in a case that involves messages from the dead, a seductive spiritualist, and Becca Collins--the beautiful daughter of the deceased.

When it comes to relationships and self-preservation, defense attorney Samantha Brinkman has always been cut and run.

He had the motive: revenge. As did many others who banked a fortune on the wrong man. That’s a point in Niko’s favor. So is his alibi for the day of the slaying. Until that alibi mysteriously disappears. As Sam’s feverish search for another viable killer begins, the investigation only leads deeper into Niko’s past and its secrets.

From the darkest suspicions to final judgment, fighting for Niko is Sam’s job. To do it, she must risk everything on a man who could make all her worst fears come true.

The Last Bathing Beauty by Amy Sue Nathan

A former beauty queen faces the secrets of her past—for herself and the sake of her family’s future—in a heartfelt novel about fate, choices, and second chances.

Everything seemed possible in the summer of 1951. Back then Betty Stern was an eighteen-year-old knockout working at her grandparents’ lakeside resort. The “Catskills of the Midwest” was the perfect place for Betty to prepare for bigger things. She’d head to college in New York City. Her career as a fashion editor would flourish. But first, she’d enjoy a wondrous last summer at the beach falling deeply in love with an irresistible college boy and competing in the annual Miss South Haven pageant. On the precipice of a well-planned life, Betty’s future was limitless.

Decades later, the choices of that long-ago season still reverberate for Betty, now known as Boop. Especially when her granddaughter comes to her with a dilemma that echoes Boop’s memories of first love, broken hearts, and faraway dreams. It’s time to finally face the past—for the sake of her family and her own happiness. Maybe in reconciling the life she once imagined with the life she’s lived, Boop will discover it’s never too late for a second chance.

Fake Truth by Lee Goldberg

The only thing more dangerous than fake news is fake truth in this exhilarating thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg.

Author Ian Ludlow writes great adventures…but after helping Chinese movie star Wang Mei defect to the United States, he becomes the accidental hero of a real-life espionage thriller. Now he’s stuck with the actress—and suffering a nasty case of writer’s block—when he stumbles into a secret Russian plot using “fake news” to outrage Americans into believing a terrifying lie.

It’s up to Ian and Margo French, his researcher-turned-spy, to discover the connection between a barbaric drug lord in Mexico, a homicidal maniac in California, a rogue citizen army in Texas, a raging TV pundit in New York, and two dead tourists in Portugal…before the president of the United States makes a catastrophic mistake that could resurrect the Soviet Union.

The only weapon Ian has against the global conspiracy, and the assassins who are closing in on him, is his vivid imagination. If his story isn’t a killer thriller, he’s dead.

Rosie by Lindsay Ward

Darbyshire by Maverick Alexander

Quarantine. Big Tech. Pirates. Nancy Pelosi. Drugs. Feminism. Political Correctness.

The Kindle giveaway for 100 copies of DARBYSHIRE: IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT by Maverick Alexander is live.

It’s Not Your Fault introduces ten new characters within the Darbyshire universe and really ramps up the nonsense that you either fondly, or not so fondly, remember from the inaugural book.

Unsurprisingly, many of the stories take deep dives into a wide variety of "interesting" cultural issues of our current society. With an overdose of hyperbolic language, as well as some tasteless jokes, the tales herein take a few metaphorical half court shots to satirically illustrate the fact that life isn't always about rainbows, butterflies, and selfies.

Remember, Darbyshire is a series of meme-grade, literary lampoons. Like funhouse mirrors, the fables warp the soberingly depressing reality of the modern world into something so exceptional­ly gay, even stoic, card-carrying members of the global lumberjack community won't possess the capacity to retard their ensuing titillation—all but guaranteeing what seasoned thought leaders describe as their industry's ultimate nightmare scenario: the widespread abandonment of faggots in forests everywhere.
