Featured Book - Strong at the Break by Jon Land

strongbreak.jpg“A riveting, fast-paced story that leaves the reader breathless.”

Sandra Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Tough Customer

LOGLINE: Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong takes on a right-wing militia planning to wage a second Civil War. Fifth generation Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong returns in her most personal and desperate adventure yet, an adventure that has its roots in a gunfight years before in which her father shot down the cult-like leader of a separatist church.

Two decades later that man’s son, Malcolm Arno, has become head of a militia movement bent on unleashing chaos and anarchy across the country. With all the guns and money he needs to unleash a second Civil War, nothing seems to be standing in Arno’s way. Until his actions run him afoul of Caitlin Strong.

Already mired in one investigation of drug smuggling over the U.S.-Canadian border and another involving an Iraqi war veteran who claims the army is trying to kill him, Caitlin finds herself embroiled in the search for the kidnapped son of her sometime lover, former outlaw Cort Wesley Masters. When the missing boy’s trail leads straight to Malcolm Arno’s fortified Texas compound, the three disparate trails Caitlin has been following converge in an explosion of violence that will put her teachings to the ultimate test.

From a battle with the Hells Angels on the frozen rivers at the border with Canada to a white slavery ring operating out of the desert wastelands of Mexico, the stage has been set for a battle like none neither Caitlin nor Cort Wesley has ever faced before where the stakes are nothing less than the survival of America as we know it.

Featured Book - Red, White and Boom by Karl Puttlitz 

boom.jpgSpecial agent Jeb Foster and Rapid Intervention Team he leads are recruited to help the Russians retrieve stolen weapons-grade nuclear material. Although the United States and other countries were assisting the Russians to secure those stockpiles, many were known to be vulnerable. When Jeb learns that not one, but muyiple thefts have taken place from supposedly secure locations, the search leads him and the team to secret cities where few outsiders have ever set foot. The body count of those who could have provided valuable information steadily mounts, making his task all the more difficult.

Sabotage leaves him stranded in the harsh Artic wilderness. Time is running short, Jeb fears the thieves will escape Russia with the stolen nuclear material. He knows that if the stolen material passes into the hands of waiting terrorists, who contracted for its theft, it will be for the sole purpose of delivering a devastating blow to a major American city.

Featured Book - Lebensborn by Jo Ann Bender

lebensborn.jpgThe story is in two parts: the first in France, the second in Germany at a Lebensborn, a home for high-class women bearing children for the Fuhrer. It
is a secret program and all records have been destroyed except those which were in homes in Norway.

It begins in France. An elite SS group, commanded by the charming but cruel Major Hurst, take over a small village. Antoinette Gauthier, her family, friends and members of the Resistance, even their pets, now find life difficult.

For Antoinette, this means becoming a servant for Major Hurst and his men in her home and living in the attic. She allows him to seduce her to learn secrets for the Resistance.

Discarded; then finding herself pregnant, Major Hurst sends her to Bavaria to a Lebensborn home. The women and staff believe she is a spy and treat her poorly. Antoinette’s pastry made for a baby-naming ceremony is enjoyed by Heinrich Himmler who sends her next door to his SS party house to be their new cook.

The Major’s finance from Berlin arrives at the party house. Tension builds when Antoinette is invited to join one of their wild weekend parties.

It all fits into her plan to rescue and escape with a downed English pilot. Captured by the Gestapo, she never gives up, but makes plans to get away. The ending is one of reconciliation. It takes place with most of the major characters many years after WWII.
