The disguised voice on the phone claims City Hall is infested with corruption caused by a murder “that wasn’t a murder,” but when Dora’s beloved Lt. Franny Hart investigates and tragedy strikes, the enraged natural born fighter won’t let it stand … NOT TODAY – Dora’s Rage Series, Book 1.
Deborah “Dora” Ellison’s job collecting garbage, usually by lifting and “tipping” the filled garbage containers with one hand, has made her freakishly strong. At her lover, Beach City Police Lieutenant Francesca Hart’s suggestion, she tries out for a new MMA league and finds she is a natural; she forces the owner to tap.
Dora loathes bullies. When she sees someone being bullied, she is apt to go after the bully, often with unexpected brutality.
The corruption that is so much a part of Beach City politics did indeed begin with a “murder that wasn’t a murder,” and is defended by the powers that be — both in City Hall and in the person of the city’s brutal enforcer, “Cranky” Franky Patella, who is every bit as brutal, and as wounded, as Dora.
The two are destined to meet, a meeting that will decide the future of Beach City.

The day Death comes to Lazarus Gaumond’s town and kills everyone in one fell swoop, the last thing he expects to see is a woman left alive and standing. But Lazarus has her own extraordinary gift: she cannot be killed—not by humans, not by the elements, not by Death himself.
She is the one soul Death doesn’t recognize. The one soul he cannot pry free from her flesh. Nor can he ignore the unsettling desire he has for her. Take her. He wants to, desperately. And the longer she tries to stop him from his killing spree, the stronger the desire becomes.
When Lazarus crosses paths with the three other horsemen, an unthinkable situation leads to a terrible deal: seduce Death, save the world. A hopeless task, made all the worse by the bad blood between her and Thanatos. But Death’s attraction to her is undeniable, and try though she might, Lazarus cannot stay away from that ancient, beautiful being and his dark embrace.
The end is here. Humankind is set to perish, and not even the horsemen can stop Death from fulfilling his final task.
Only Lazarus can.
“You’ll not only break the ice, you’ll melt it away with your new skills.” — Larry King

What is that magic quality makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their “Midas touch?”
What it boils down to is a more skillful way of dealing with people.
The author has spent her career teaching people how to communicate for success. In her book How to Talk to Anyone (Contemporary Books, October 2003) Lowndes offers 92 easy and effective sure-fire success techniques– she takes the reader from first meeting all the way up to sophisticated techniques used by the big winners in life. In this information-packed book you’ll find:
9 ways to make a dynamite first impression
14 ways to master small talk, “big talk,” and body language
14 ways to walk and talk like a VIP or celebrity
6 ways to sound like an insider in any crowd
7 ways to establish deep subliminal rapport with anyone
9 ways to feed someone’s ego (and know when NOT to!)
11 ways to make your phone a powerful communications tool
15 ways to work a party like a politician works a room
7 ways to talk with tigers and not get eaten alive
In her trademark entertaining and straight-shooting style, Leil gives the techniques catchy names so you’ll remember them when you really need them, including: “Rubberneck the Room,” “Be a Copyclass,” “Come Hither Hands,” “Bare Their Hot Button,” “The Great Scorecard in the Sky,” and “Play the Tombstone Game,” for big success in your social life, romance, and business.
How to Talk to Anyone, which is an update of her popular book, Talking the Winner’s Way (see the 5-star reviews of the latter) is based on solid research about techniques that work!
By the way, don’t confuse How to Talk to Anyone with one of Leil’s previous books, How to Talk to Anybody About Anything. This one is completely different!
The bestselling author of The Righteous Mind draws on philosophical wisdom and scientific research to show how the meaningful life is closer than you think
The Happiness Hypothesis is a book about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world’s civilizations–to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing. Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of The Righteous Mind, shows how a deeper understanding of the world’s philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims–like “do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” or “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”–can enrich and even transform our lives.
An Amazon Charts bestseller.

When he’s inexplicably freed soon into a ten-year sentence in federal prison, Decker suspects another setup. And private investigator Harlow Mackenzie knows he’s right. She has evidence that a power greater than the Russian mob was behind the raid that ruined Decker’s life.
The next move in a nationwide cat-and-mouse game of high-level sedition is up to them. Fueled by revenge and an obsession to clear his name, Decker has only one mission: to destroy a growing conspiracy before it’s too late.

What woman doesn’t want her relationship to be romantic? With all the millions of romantic fantasy novels read every year by women, why can’t romance be transferred to real life and real relationships? Romance… Push The On Button! author, Paul Gaughan does exactly that. He bridges the gap between romantic fantasy and romantic reality. The subtitle explains the main thrust of the book – How To Turn Your Man Into A Romantic. It informs in detail the differences between men and women especially when it comes to romance and why this is so. For the first time, the author makes the compelling assertion that romance is actually a need for a woman in her intimate relationship that should be recognised. Paul goes on to reveal that the resistance to romance men have is rooted in their caveman DNA but how a woman can work with this to not only increase romance in her man but also his intimacy tolerance so the two of them can become romantically connected at a very deep level.
Throughout the book Paul draws upon his counselling experience with couples to explain the blocks to romance but also the solutions to flood romance into a long term relationship. It also teaches in detail how romance can also increase the sexual pleasure for a woman and how she can immunise herself from low sexual desire. It reveals the two different switches women need to switch on to unlock the pleasure of deeper intimacy. Exercises are provided to increase intimacy and connection for any relationship.
Archaic, traditional views promoted by men ditch romance in the fantasy category based only on immature, emotional and initially physical attachments. However, Romance… Push The On Button! explains the science behind romance in intimate relationships where successful couples can actually keep romance flourishing for decades. The science is surprising as positive actions romantic couples take actually change their DNA.
This revolutionary volume reveals how any woman can once again experience the romance that young lovers have when they are entirely smitten with each other. But more than that, it provides the insight, the tools and the know how, in order to keep romance burning in your relationship for the rest of your life.

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.
At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.
At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.
By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.
Love never fails, right?
But for Ramsey, it did.
Love failed him.
I failed him.
The entire world failed him.
At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.
Move on, he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.
Start a new life, he urged.
I don’t love you anymore, he lied.
There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.
So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

His package ended up inside my box.
Calm down, perv. My mailbox.
As soon as I saw what was inside,
I knew two things:
It belonged to my hot neighbor, and he had a dirty secret.
Normally, I was more of a cat person. As in, if I had to choose who lives, I’m going to take the cat nine times out of ten. It’s not that I particularly like cats, I just don’t particularly like most people.
My neighbor wasn’t most people. He lived in the apartment across the hall, and he was your typical, buttoned-up, fancy shoes, smells like a Calvin Klein commercial, looks like he actually flosses kind of guy. I mean, seriously? Wasn’t flossing just made up by dentists so they could go on their little power trips once every six months?
The point was, this guy very obviously had his life all put together. He was Mr. Perfect, and If you asked me, he needed to be brought down a few pegs to wallow with the rest of us.
Cue his long, thick, package penetrating my tight little mailbox.
I know. It’s absolutely sick. It was such an obvious ploy to hit on me. Forget the fact that the mail lady put it there, my neighbor and I both knew what kind of game he was playing. Oh yeah, we totally knew. It was on. It was in, if you would.
I accidentally dropped a knife on the package a few times back in my apartment. It basically sprang open on its own, and I had no choice but to look inside.
His dirty little secret was staring me right in the face. As it turned out, Mr. Perfect wasn’t so perfect. Who knew?
Hint: I knew. And I was absolutely going to enjoy every second of what was coming.
My orders are simple.
Take her inheritance.
Get rid of her.
The bookish little recluse is worth more than she knows.
She’s an unassuming librarian.
I’m the brigadier of the Russian Bratva.
She has no friends.
I command a small army.
She’s a modest virgin.
And now she’s mine.
