Desperate and alone in the woods, Sally has nowhere to

and their daughter Devon, who inherited her father’s investigative instincts. Devon’s search for the truth takes
her dangerously close to the powerful Pierson clan and its enigmatic heir apparent, Blake Pierson. But with Olympic show-jumping

"THE LAST SPYMASTER"
Nam-a-rama: by Phillip Jennings
Everybody knows War is Hell. Only the Few and the Proud
know what fun Hell can be.
Here it is, folks: "How the cow ate the cabbage" in the CLASSIFIED words of the President hisself
[sic]. TOP SECRET stuff. EYES ONLY. If you want to know the real story (and you know you do)-
"Nam-A-Rama" is "Catch 22"
meets "Apocalypse Now." It''s the wildest, wackiest, saddest and truest war story ever told, because it''s all made-up, which
means it''s all real-from the oatmeal dropped on the VC (the Marines won''t eat it) to the naked movie star parachuting into
Hanoi; from the jarhead who calls in air strikes from a Bangkok brothel to the "Sky-Kyke" who fills out the Marine Corps''
diversity quota; from the businessmen demanding a long inventory-reducing war to the Pentagon brass hoping for a glorious
medal-worthy one; from the locals who''ll do anything for a Yankee dollar to the grunts nobody ever asked and never will.
It starts and ends, like all the best adventures, in the air. Almost-Captain Gearheardt and his buddy, Almost-Captain
Armstrong, are ferrying bodies (live in, dead out) for the CIA''s Air America, but they have never forgotten their TOP SECRET
orders, given when Gearheardt was delivering pizzas to the Oval Office for the CIA: Chopper into Hanoi and buy Uncle Ho a
beer. Then either shoot his ass or shake his hand (the instructions get vague at this point).
And so they do, Semper Fi,
pausing only to get an aircraft carrier black-flagged for bubonic plague, have an affair with Mickey Mouse, cleverly decode
the message sewn into a lusty spy''s black panties, commandeer a Russian truck complete with a midget Chinese ''Uncle Sam,
'' avenge themselves on a Cuban torturer, and dutifullyexperience all the Honor and Glory of the next-to-the-next-to-last
war that never (God forbid) made the Nightly News.
And they do it all for laughs. Because if they were to stop laughing,
where would the heartache end?
Phillip Jennings'' unpredictable novel of Vietnam is an American classic in the making,
a not-so-longing look at the absurdity of a war in which the damned and the innocent share the same hootch, the same Commander-in-Chief,
and sometimes even the same body-bag. You won''t stop laughing, or thinking.
Highland Warrior: by Connie Mason
Ross MacKenna and Gillian MacKay battle with their swords
for the honor of their clans, but what weapons can they use in their duel of passion when an alliance forces them to wed?
Wish Come True: by Patricia Kay
wanted—no, she needed—money, and fast. Her roof needed replacing. Her kids needed tuition. Her car was not long
for this world. Her ex-husband was a cheap creep. Until one day her wildest fantasy came true—she won the lottery. She—and
her family—would never want for anything again. She should be the happiest person on earth—right?
Wrong. Because suddenly everything
changed. Her wish came true, but now what? These days there was only one special man who seemed to want her for who she was-and
not what she had. It almost made her long to go back.

Utterly stunned, Mia is wary and delighted -- she may have suffered a broken heart, but her breathtakingly handsome lover
is back to reignite the passion that existed between them. Little does she know that Rafael has returned to give his newfound
son a proper upbringing back in Calandria -- even if it means seducing Mia into marriage. But when Rafael finds himself truly
