Take it Like a Vamp

Take it Like a Vamp

Take it Like a Vamp by Candace Havens Vampire Nick Christos might've been born in the Middle Ages, but the good old days seem tame compared to the last eight years he's spent ruling the Supernatural Council. His only respite is with his cute neighbor Casey Meyers, a woman he wants more than any undead man should. Sure, he's forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but there's no way he'll test his own strength by getting too close to a human, and he's not willing to risk her life--not with bloodthirsty family on the prowl out to ruin Nick's life. When said Nick's kin shows up, the innocent Casey is caught in the middle of a centuries old fight, and Nick's biggest fear is realized. Now, instead of keeping his hands off his neighbor, he'll risk everything to save the human he's come to love.

Mistake It Like a Man

Real Men Don’t Get Embarrassed…We Merely Appear Sunburned Ever had your doctor give you valuable diet and exercise advice, then gone out for a cheeseburger and fries to celebrate the fact that you’re not dead yet? Do your teens flee the room in dismay when you try to use their jargon to prove that you’re still “groovy”? Have you ever been smitten by romance, pulled your wife close to you, and asked her to give you one good reason you should not make passionate love to her at that very moment, only to have her remind you that you are standing in the grocery aisle? Dave Meurer has been through it all. And he’s got a tale or two (fifty, actually, in Mistake It Like a Man ) that will shed some light, albeit fluorescent, on all kinds of common manly experiences. “Dave Meurer vividly illustrates the humor that is American family life. But be warned: Amid the chuckles, he masterfully weaves some serious food for thought.” -Bill Shepson, Editorial Director, Advance magazine “Dave Meurer has done it again. He’s taken the commonplace and turned it into high comedy. He has the ability to make you giggle gleefully while meditating meaningfully on the spiritual issues that matter most.” -Ellie Kay, Author, speaker, and “ America’s Family Financial Expert” Story Behind the Book “Humor is the secret weapon of the nonfiction writer. It is an attempt to say important things in a special way that regular writers aren’t getting said in a regular way—or if they are, it’s so regular that no one is reading it.” —William Zinsser “I see my humor writing as guerrilla warfare for the kingdom of God . People let their defenses down when they’re laughing, and that’s when I can make some serious points about love, grace, conflict resolution, male/female differences, raising kids, and work—all in a nonthreatening way. Even ‘nonreading’ guys read my books, because everyone wants and needs to laugh.” — Dave Meurer

The Last Guardian of Everness

The Last Guardian of Everness

The rave reviews for John Wright's science fiction trilogy, The Golden Age, hail his debut as the most important of the new century. Now, in The Last Guardian of Everness, this exciting and innovative writer proves that his talents extend beyond SF, as he offers us a powerful novel of high fantasy set in the modern age. Young Galen Waylock is the last watchman of the dream-gate beyond which ancient evils wait, hungry for the human world. For a thousand years, Galen's family stood guard, scorned by a world which dismissed the danger as myth. Now, the minions of Darkness stir in the deep, and the long, long watch is over. Galen's patient loyalty seems vindicated. That loyalty is misplaced. The so-called Power of Light is hostile to modern ideas of human dignity and liberty. No matter who wins the final war between darkness and light, mankind is doomed either to a benevolent dictatorship or a malevolent one. And so Galen makes a third choice: the sleeping Champions of Light are left to sleep. Galen and his companions take the forbidden fairy-weapons themselves. Treason, murder, and disaster follow. The mortals must face the rising Darkness alone. An ambitious and beautifully written story, The Last Guardian of Everness is an heroic adventure that establishes John Wright as a significant new fantasist. It is just the start of a story that will conclude in the companion volume, Mists of Everness. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

But the discovery of a body, murdered between mantras, suggests there’s more chicanery than channeling going on in this suspicious sect.
