If so, what kind of drama would their love story make? Wouldn’t they have unique challenges to overcome in scaling the zenith they seek, and in keeping it vibrant through time? http://www.rcostelloe.com

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America. It occurs in some form every 79 seconds. And nefarious minds are dedicated to the discovery of new methods for its commission. The same technological advances that make communication easy and instant have torn our identities from us and turned them into “objects” that can be stolen and misused. What if a male law firm partner hijacked the identity of a female associate? What if he used email impersonation and electronic forgery to set her up as the mastermind of an illegal scheme? And what if she was ultimately framed for murder as a result of his actions? Wearing the Spider, a debut legal thriller by Susan Schaab, explores these possibilities. “The Devil Wears Prada in legal technicolor. A smart, thoroughly-enjoyable tale.” –Liz Smith, New York Post Columnist & New York Times Bestselling Author of Natural Blonde and Dishing: Great Dish – And Dishes – From America's Most Beloved Gossip Columnist.

Haunted by her involvement in her parents death at the age of ten, Cassandra has never been confident in the love that others felt for her—not her adoptive parents, her friends and certainly not the man she loved with all her heart. So, after giving herself to her high school sweetheart on prom night, she flees from the overpowering fears and all those who supported her. And then after four years of sleeping with one strange man after another—whose names she couldn’t remember or never knew—she decided enough was enough. It was time to return to face those she’d left behind, particularly Brenden Carter. Brenden should hate Cass for running away from their love and with his daughter, but somehow even after years of telling himself he hated her–and doing a lot of womanizing himself–Cass’ smile still managed to get next to him.

A "compelling, high-octane novel of racial, tribal and ideological conflict" Scatterlings of Africa is a fast-paced thriller, set in Rhodesia's war against terror. Rhodesia became Zimbabwe in 1980. It's December 1972 and Lieutenant Ron Cartwright is obsessed with defending his country against insurgents in a vicious civil war. Comrade Gadziwa is equally determined to win the fight for Zimbabwe to be restored to his people. While abduction, intimidation, torture and worse are going on in the war zone, the cities, towns and many farms remain safe, idyllic havens where Ron's wife Angela and their young children live in relative comfort. But the stress of their separate lives is taking its toll, and the arrival of Angie's cousin Mark, who she hasn't seen since she was a child, adds fuel to an already tense situation. The tentacles of war spread, plots cross, and life will never be the same again... www.peterdaviesbooks.com

But why are they suddenly betraying him at the most inopportune times—like dates and business meetings? Set amid the rigid expectations of a polite society where mentioning bodily functions is taboo, Romance, Riches, and Restrooms is a tragically hilarious memoir about one man’s desperate quest to conceal and conquer irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) before he becomes a penniless hermit.
