THE GARDEN ON SUNSET
A Novel of Golden-Era Hollywood (Hollywood's Garden of Allah Novels Book 1) by Martin Turnbull
Have you ever wanted to climb into a time machine and visit Hollywood during its heyday?
Right before talking pictures slug Tinsel Town in the jaw, a luminous silent screen star converts her private estate into the Garden of Allah Hotel. The lush grounds soon become a haven for Hollywood hopefuls to meet, drink, and revel through the night. George Cukor is in the pool, Tallulah Bankhead is at the bar, and Scott Fitzgerald is sneaking off to a bungalow with Sheilah Graham while Madame Alla Nazimova keeps watch behind her lace curtains.
But the real story of the Garden of Allah begins with its first few residents, three kids on the brink of something big.
Marcus Adler has a lot to prove after his father catches him and the police chief's son with their pants down. He flees Pennsylvania for Hollywood with his mouth shut and his eyes open, and begins to write the lines all those starlets will say out loud. Can a smart, sensitive guy find his own voice in a town that's just learning to talk?
Kathryn Massey's childhood was a grinding routine of auditions, but she couldn't care less about being a movie star. When she takes off with her typewriter, determined to become a newspaper reporter, she finds that breaking into the boys' club is tougher than breaking free of her bossy mother. To make it in this town, she'll need some serious moxie.
Gwendolyn Brick is a sweet Southern beauty who's come a long way to try her luck on the big screen. She's hoping the same succulent lips the guys want to kiss will land her more than a bit part on a casting couch. She's going to need some help keeping everyone in line.
Nobody gets a free pass in Hollywood, but a room at the Garden on Sunset can get your foot in the door.
Banished Saga Book One by Ramona Flightner
I want more from life than she can imagine.
If she knew of my interest in Gabriel, she'd have a fit of the vapors. She'd bemoan his humble beginnings and lack of wealth rather than recognize his integrity or his loyalty to his brothers. If she saw how he stares at me, as though I'm a puzzle he's trying to solve, she'd lock me in my room. He fascinates me, as no one has since that awful day.
How can we surmount society's prejudices and allow our love to grow?
GHOSTS OF TSAVO

But she’ll need more than that if she’s to unravel the mystery of the Ghosts of Tsavo without being eaten in the process. All this while surviving the machinations of her best friend’s dashing godfather and the efforts of her safari guide to feed her to any lion willing to drag her away. What is a ghost-chasing widow to do?
This is Case 1 in “Society for Paranormals”: A series concerning dead husbands, African legends and the search for a perfect spot of tea. It's for those readers who adore “Pride & Prejudice” and would love to experience a supernatural safari in colonial Kenya.
FIRE ON THE PLAINS OF INDIA
by Roger Kenworthy
Fire on The Plains of India is Volume 3 in the Nathanial Kenworthy adventure series. In this page turning tale, Nathanial ends up in ancient India and witnesses first hand an atomic war between two brothers, Bhuvanesh and Mahajan. While this duel is reminiscent of the deadly conflict in Rome between Romulus and Remus or the biblical rivalry between Cain and Abel, nevertheless, the outcome can wipe-out the lives of millions of people and not just a single soul.
Caught up in the passion for the journey, our time traveler is tittering between joining his past and leaving his present when he is unexpectedly abducted by the cruel Mahajan. As a psychological battle takes place between the two, the bodies begin to pile up as the plains of India turn red from the blood of the countless warriors killed in battle.
As the war rages on, Nathanial is no longer an asset to his captors and he is prepared to meet the benevolent gods. As he is about to meet his end, good fortune smiles down upon him from an unexpected source. While his future is alive, death from the skies shakes the countryside, the towns, and the villages… and the blood of innocent men, women and children baptizes the streets, rivers and valleys of this mystical land.
