Black Hills Bad Boy by , Book Resume:

Bad to the bone. Sort of. Jack Treadwell's plan is simple: hop on his Harley and leave his boring alter ego--successful dentist from Denver--behind. He’s in the Black Hills to experience a new reality. The grit. The heat. The full throttle energy of a world famous motorcycle rally. Until his great adventure takes a crazy turn after he gets a temporary tattoo from single mom Katherine Robinson. Third time’s the charm. Or not. With two sons and two divorces on her plate, Kat Robinson doesn’t trust love-at-first-sight any further than she could throw the handsome RUB--rich urban biker—in her bar. But the money he pays her to play tourist guide on the back of his Harley will cover the rent after the wannabe bad boy is long gone. Like a dream. A crazy, sexy dream with lasting repercussions. Black Hills Bad Boy is Book 3 in the 10-book Black Hills Rendezvous series. If you’re a fan of connected stories with complex, three-dimensional characters facing compelling challenges, you won’t want to miss this contemporary series set in the Black Hills of South Dakota from Debra Salonen—past winner of Romantic Times Reviewer's Career Achievement "Series Storyteller of the Year" award. THE BLACK HILLS RENDEZVOUS series: BOOK #1: BLACK HILLS BABY - His sperm for a share in her gold mine? What could possibly go wrong? Hollywood heartthrob Cooper Lindstrom needs money to get his late mother's homicidal bookie off his back. Black Hills postmaster Libby McGannon has a trade in mind: Cooper's sperm in return for a share in her family's gold mine. Both wind up with more than they bargained for. BOOK #2: BLACK HILLS BILLIONAIRE - What if his $$ isn’t enough to save his first--his only--love? Success can hide a multitude of secrets, but when Hollywood's "wunderkind" producer/director Shane Reynard agrees to set Cooper Lindstrom's new TV sitcom in the Black Hills he knows he’s risking more than a boatload of money--especially when he meets a girl from his past: Jenna Murphy. A girl who has every reason to hate him. BOOK #3: BLACK HILLS BAD BOY - Bad to the bone...in his dreams. Jack Treadwell's plan is simple: hop on his Harley and experience life. The grit. The heat. The passion of the biggest motorcycle rally in the Black Hills. Life can't get any better—or stranger...until he meets single mom Katherine Robinson. BOOK #4: BLACK HILLS BACHELOR - A miner and a Hollywood princess? That sort of make-believe only happens in the movies. Single by choice. That's what Mac McGannon tells himself. With both feet firmly on the ground--or in his family's gold mine beneath terra firma--Mac has no time for the "Hollywood types" that have invaded his hometown of Sentinel Pass. But try telling that to his little daughter who believes Morgana Carlyle is a real life princess sent to be her new mommy. BOOK #5: BLACK HILLS NATIVE SON - A journey of discovery brings him the son he never knew, and the woman he was meant to love. Eli Robideaux’s vision quest takes him down a road he never wanted to walk—to the past. His mistakes—even the ones he made for the right reasons—have come back to haunt him. He doesn’t understand why, but stumbling across Char Jones feels like grabbing on to a lifeline that might keep him from falling into the bone-deep despair that had been his father’s ruin. BOOK #6: BLACK HILLS OUTCAST - Hiding out from life worked just fine…until he met Rachel. Ask anyone in Sentinel Pass. They’ll confirm: Rufus Miller is an enigma. An outcast. A mystery man content to live and work in his Black Hills cabin with little or no contact with people. Where’d he come from? What’s his story? What’s a Dream House? Those answers are pure speculation...until marketing guru Rachel Grey shows up with plans to make Rufus’s art the next big thing. BOOK #7: BLACK HILLS WHITE KNIGHT - A white knight? Hardly. His suit is Armani--not armor. A-list agent William Hughes leaves high drama to his Hollywood A-list friends and clients. There’s only room for one crusader in the family and that role falls to his saintly mother, a doctor who has devoted her life to the children of the world…seeming to forget she has a son of her own. But when asked to fly Daria Fontina and her two daughters to a safe house in the Black Hills, William doesn’t hesitate. BOOK #8: BLACK HILLS RANCHER - Picking the right twin to be a role model for his daughter should be easy--not dangerous. A stunt-woman? Cade Garrity’s new short-term tenant risks life and limb for a living? Oh, hell, no. The Black Hills rancher is a single dad with an impressionable young daughter who’s recently expressed an interest in bull riding. But when Jessie Bouchard drops out of the sky into his arms, he realizes he can’t let her go. BOOK #9: BLACK HILLS STRANGER - He’s no stranger to her. He’s her dream lover and worst nightmare combined. Jonas Galloway has a lot of nerve asking for help from Remy Bouchard—his high school sweetheart whose heart he broke after a terrible lie destroyed their hopes for a future together. But his seven-year old daughter, Birdie, has disappeared and Remy is the only one he trusts to find her—after all, Remy’s unique abilities saved his life when he was a child. BOOK #10: BLACK HILLS LEGACY - Nothing like an unconscious doppelgänger to ruin a perfectly good day at the Mystery Spot. Robyn Craine, new owner of The Mystery Spot, has big plans for the Sentinel Pass tourist attraction, and she gambled her surprise inheritance--a gift from billionaire Harold Hopewell that Robyn’s late mother chose to keep secret--to buy the adjoining piece of property to turn her business into a year-round travel venue. Robyn doesn’t have time to fall for Liam Temple, a handsome actor whose father is ready to go to war over Robyn’s land.

Black Hills Rendezvous I by Debra Salonen Book Resume:

Lights. Action. Camera. Are you ready for your close-up, Sentinel Pass? Change hits the sleepy, Black Hills town of Sentinel Pass like a tsunami from a blockbuster movie when Hollywood heartthrob Cooper Lindstrom falls for the Pass’s favorite daughter, postmaster Libby McGannon. It’s only a matter of time until other locals' love stories, including the members of Libby’s Wine, Women and Words book club, get written into the script. This contemporary western romance collection includes the first FOUR books in a TWELVE-book series set in the Black Hills, Malibu, LA, and Louisiana. In this small town, secrets, mystery, murder and revenge are more than plot points in a script, when love is at stake. BLACK HILLS BABY Hollywood heartthrob Cooper Lindstrom needs money to get his late mother's homicidal bookie off his back. Black Hills postmaster Libby McGannon’s online “deal” sounds like a goldmine—exactly the kind of TV sitcom audiences love. Libby might be the ticket that pushes Coop back on top of the ratings, if he can keep from falling in love with her. BLACK HILLS BILLIONAIRE Success can hide a multitude of secrets, but when Hollywood's "wunderkind" producer/director Shane Reynard agrees to set his pal Cooper’s TV sitcom in the Black Hills, he knows he’s risking more than a boatload of money. He's risking a war with the brother he hates. What he didn't count on was making Jenna Murphy--his first love and biggest regret--a target. BLACK HILLS BAD BOY Look out, Sentinel Pass, Jack Treadwell's got a brand new Harley--and attitude. No more “Mr. Nice Guy.” He’s bad to the bone…sort of. Single mom Kat Petroski knows love-at-first-sight can’t be trusted, and happily-ever-after only exists in romance novels. She’s too busy—and too smart--to fall for a RUB--rich urban biker. Until she does. BLACK HILLS BACHELOR A miner and a movie star? Even Hollywood thinks pairing celebrity actress Morgana Carlyle with Sentinel Pass miner Mac McGannon is a bad idea. The only person who thinks it’s the best news ever is Mac’s young daughter, Megan, who insists Morgana Carlyle would make the perfect replacement mom. Even if Mac secretly agrees, it’s clear Morgana isn’t who she claims to be.

BLACK HILLS WHITE KNIGHT by DEBRA SALONEN Book Resume:

A white knight? Hardly. His suit is Armani--not armor. Hollywood agent William Hughes leaves high drama to his A-list friends and clients. The child of two career crusaders—a Member of Parliament father fighting social injustice and a pediatric doctor mother more devoted to the children of the world than to her own son--William left England for the least altruistic career he could find: L.A. talent agent. Sadly, one tragic missed opportunity to help a friend still haunts him. So, when asked to fly an abused woman and her two daughters to a safe house in the Black Hills, William can’t say no. When her powerful, highly connected, estranged husband’s war of words switches to physical abuse, Daria Fontina knows she has to leave California. But escaping to her grandfather’s home in the Black Hills means trusting a stranger--a handsome Brit with surprising depth and the kind of compassion that touches her heart. Too bad Daria has no intention of falling in love again. Ever. Black Hills White Knight is Book 7 in the 10-book Black Hills Rendezvous series. If you’re a fan of deeply emotional stories that make you root for true-to-life characters who earn every bit of their happily-ever-after, then you can’t miss Debra Salonen’s epic tale of love conquers all. Buy Black Hills White Knight to honor mothers who stand up to bullies and risk everything to show their children—and the world—that all women deserve to be treated with fairness and respect, and that love and happiness both are possible with the right partner.

Bad Boy from Jamaica by Basil Waine Kong, Ph.D., JD Book Resume:

Garnett Myrie came into this world on 27 September 1953 and grew up in the hills of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. When his uncle went to the United States as a farm worker in 1960 and brought back Black liberation literature, he became enamored with “Black Power”. He got himself in trouble when he became bold enough to put his fist in the air and shouted for everyone to hear: “I am black and I am proud.” Why should people hate me for loving myself? But he lived in a very conservative rural community where all the women adored the Queen of England and all the men aspired to become English Gentlemen. Eventually, he got used to being treated harshly, became fearless and refused to cry out in pain. He would rub cow-itch (Mucuna pruriens) and scallion on his palm to deaden the skin whenever he thought he was to get a beating, but he was no longer afraid of pain. Unfortunately, he occasionally forgot that he was handling cow itch and inadvertently rubbed his eyes with his fingers or take out his penis to pea which lead to several hours of enormous suffering as washing with soap and water did not help. He was an erasable child, however, each time the people tried to subdue him, like a cork, he would surface again. As he was not getting along in the country, his mother arranged for him to live with her sister in Kingston. While he worked as a security guard, he was introduced to and came under the influence of Dr. Walter Rodney, a radical university professor. When both he and Dr. Rodney became “Persona non-grata” for their radical activities, they escaped to Cuba. Dr. Rodney subsequently went back to his homeland (Guyana) 1980 to run for political office and was assassinated. Garnett joined the Cuba Army and was sent by Fidel Castro to fight in the successful war for independence in Angola. As he was fighting against the South African Army, he had orders to kill all white men he encountered. He became a killing machine. He was personally thanked and honored by both Fidel Castro and the First President of a liberated Angola, Agostino Neto. Having returned to Jamaica, he became a successful husband, businessman and father to a dozen children by ten women while he was happily married. As he grew rich and older, however, he was diagnosed with diabetes and became blind. He became more mellow in his old age and repented his “bad boy” ways to become an influential and beloved leader, husband and father.

When Paha Sapa, a young Sioux warrior, "counts coup" on General George Armstrong Custer as Custer lies dying on the battlefield at the Little Bighorn, the legendary general's ghost enters him - and his voice will speak to him for the rest of his event-filled life.

Savage Animal by Evelyn Glass Book Resume:

This is book 2 of the Prophets MC romance series. Book 3 is available everywhere now! He’s a savage beast – and he’s here to drag me back, kicking and screaming. VAL It’s been almost two months since I took my baby daughter and ran for the hills. We had to get away from my abusive ex. He’d given me enough black eyes and sleepless nights to last a lifetime. And my little girl deserves a better father than a devil like him. For a little bit, it seems like we’d made it out safe. I might be stripping to pay the bills. But it’s worth it if that’s what it takes to feed my daughter, to keep a roof over our heads. And there’s something liberating about getting on that stage. Up there, with my legs around a pole and pounding music in my ears, I can be anybody. I can be anonymous. Powerful. Free. And then it all comes crashing down. It started with a simple request for a dance. But when I saw who was asking, my blood froze in my veins. The outlaw biker waiting in the champagne room was like something out of a romance novel: Rugged, tatted, leather-bound, unbelievably huge. I gave him what he wanted. And that might just be the last thing I ever do. MERCER She looked more innocent than I expected. It’s easy to rationalize killing most of my victims – it’s kind of necessary when you’re a biker hitman like me. The scum on my hit list are usually criminals of some kind: low life thugs, dirty drug dealers – you get the idea. They deserve what’s coming to them. But Val was different. There was something in her eyes – something fragile. Special. Worth protecting. And when I find out she has a baby girl at home… The job gets that much harder. But my employer tells me I don’t have a choice. Get it done, he says. Put her down and move on with your life. So I go through the steps. I find her at the club where she dances. Take her to a room in the back. Tell her I know who she is – who she really is. Her jaw drops. I can see her eyeing the door. Getting ready to run. And then I tell her the ugly, bloody truth: I’m the man who’s been sent to kill her. *** STOP what you’re doing and check out this bad boy motorcycle club MC romance with a twist!

The Road by Cormac McCarthy Book Resume:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

100 Oklahoma Outlaws, Gangsters & Lawmen by Laurence Yadon Book Resume:

The only thing wilder than Oklahoma in the late nineteenth century are the tales that continue to surround it. In the days of the Wild West, Oklahoma was teeming with assassins, guerillas, hijackers, kidnappers, gangs, and misfits of every size and shape imaginable. Featuring such legendary characters as Billy the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, Machine Gun Kelly, Belle Starr, and Pretty Boy Floyd, this book combines recorded fact with romanticized legend, allowing the reader to decide how much to believe. Violent and out of control, the figures covered in 100 Oklahoma Outlaws, Gangsters, and Lawmen often left behind numerous victims, grisly accounts, and unforgettable stories. Included are criminals like James Deacon Miller, the devout Methodist and hired assassin. Righteous and devious, he often avoided the gallows by convincing others to admit to his murders. Rufus Buck, a man of Native American descent, targeted white settlers. His crimes against them became so heinous as to cause the Creek nation to take up arms against him. The answer to criminals such as these came in the form of Hanging Judge Parker and other officers of the law. Although they were greatly outnumbered, they provided some balance to the chaos. This historical compilation covers every memorable outlaw and lawman who passed through Oklahoma.

Plain tales from the hills by Rudyard Kipling Book Resume:

Plain Tales from the Hills (published 1888) is the first collection of short stories by Rudyard Kipling. Out of its 40 stories, "eight-and-twenty", according to Kipling's Preface, were initially published in the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, Punjab, British India between November 1886 and June 1887. "The remaining tales are, more or less, new." (Kipling had worked as a journalist for the CMG—his first job—since 1882, when he was not quite 17.) The title refers, by way of a pun on "Plain" as the reverse of "Hills", to the deceptively simple narrative style; and to the fact that many of the stories are set in the Hill Station of Simla—the "summer capital of the British Raj" during the hot weather. Not all of the stories are, in fact, about life in "the Hills": Kipling gives sketches of many aspects of life in British India

A visionary addition to American literature.” —Star Tribune An electric debut novel set against the twilight of the American gold rush, two siblings are on the run in an unforgiving landscape—trying not just to survive but to find a home. Ba dies in the night; Ma is already gone. Newly orphaned children of immigrants, Lucy and Sam are suddenly alone in a land that refutes their existence. Fleeing the threats of their western mining town, they set off to bury their father in the only way that will set them free from their past. Along the way, they encounter giant buffalo bones, tiger paw prints, and the specters of a ravaged landscape as well as family secrets, sibling rivalry, and glimpses of a different kind of future.

Buffalo for the Broken Heart by Dan O'Brien Book Resume:

For twenty years Dan O’Brien struggled to make ends meet on his cattle ranch in South Dakota. But when a neighbor invited him to lend a hand at the annual buffalo roundup, O’Brien was inspired to convert his own ranch, the Broken Heart, to buffalo. Starting with thirteen calves, “short-necked, golden balls of wool,” O’Brien embarked on a journey that returned buffalo to his land for the first time in more than a century and a half. Buffalo for the Broken Heart is at once a tender account of the buffaloes’ first seasons on the ranch and an engaging lesson in wildlife ecology. Whether he’s describing the grazing pattern of the buffalo, the thrill of watching a falcon home in on its prey, or the comical spectacle of a buffalo bull wallowing in the mud, O’Brien combines a novelist’s eye for detail with a naturalist’s understanding to create an enriching, entertaining narrative.

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn Book Resume:

An Instant New York Times Bestseller! Winner of the Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe for New Talent Author Award Filled with mystery and an intriguingly rich magic system, Tracy Deonn’s YA contemporary fantasy Legendborn offers the dark allure of City of Bones with a modern-day twist on a classic legend and a lot of Southern Black Girl Magic. After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus. A flying demon feeding on human energies. A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down. And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts—and fails—to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw. The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there’s more to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report, she’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates. She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets—and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she’ll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down—or join the fight.
