Hunting for a Highlander by Lynsay SandsEnter for a chance to win an early Kindle copy of Hunting for a Highlander, Lynsay Sands' newest Highland romance featuring the Buchanan brothers.

Lady Dwyn Innes feels utterly out of place among the eligible women who’ve descended on Buchanan Keep, vying for the attention of the last unmarried brothers. She isn’t long-legged and slender like her sisters, or flirtatious and wily like other lasses. Since her betrothed died, Dwyn has resigned herself to becoming an old maid. Yet a chance encounter with a stranger in the orchard awakens her to a new world of sensation and possibility...

After weeks away, Geordie Buchanan returns to find his home swarming with potential brides, thanks to his loving but interfering family. But one lass in particular draws his attention from the moment he spies her climbing a tree. Lady Dwyn is not nearly as plain as she thinks. Her lush figure and eager kisses delight him, as does her honesty. But the real test lies ahead: eliminating a hidden enemy, so that he and Dwyn can seal their Highland passion with a vow.

For generations, the princes of Ilara have married the most beautiful maidens from the ocean village of Varenia. But though every girl longs to be chosen as the next princess, the cost of becoming royalty is higher than any of them could ever imagine…

Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that’s ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince—while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land.

Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor’s dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home—a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren’s brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen…and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave.

In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie.

Any Resemblance to a Coincidence Is Accidental by Stephen C. Bird

Any Resemblance to a Coincidence Is Accidental by Stephen C. BirdSurreal, way-beyond-prime-time satire. Iconoclastic, politically incorrect, non-linear, over-the-top and jam-packed with losers. Experimental scenarios blend humor and horror. Emotionally disconnected characters shuttle between their waking and dreaming lives. Superficial silliness juxtaposed with deeper, darker sociological and philosophical commentary. Profane, funny fiction for adults with open minds.

Please refer to the Blog Posting on the Stephen C. Bird Author Profile Page for Reviews and Quotes from Goodreads Reviews for "Any Resemblance To A Coincidence Is Accidental".


The Dragons and the Snakes by David Kilcullen

The Dragons and the Snakes by David KilcullenEnter for your chance to win 1 of 5 finished copies of THE DRAGONS AND THE SNAKES: How the Rest Learned to Fight the West by David Kilcullen!

In THE DRAGONS AND THE SNAKES, eminent soldier-scholar David Kilcullen asks how, and what, opponents of the West have learned during the last quarter-century of conflict. Applying a combination of evolutionary theory and detailed field observation, he explains what happened to the "snakes"-non-state threats including terrorists and guerrillas-and the "dragons"-state-based competitors such as Russia and China. He explores how enemies learn under conditions of conflict, and examines how Western dominance over a very particular, narrowly-defined form of warfare since the Cold War has created a fitness landscape that forces adversaries to adapt in ways that present serious new challenges to America and its allies.

THE DRAGONS AND THE SNAKES will not only reshape our understanding of the West's enemies' capabilities, but will also show how we can respond given the increasing limits on US power.
