I am not sure what I just committed to. A friend on Facebook is rounding people up to do a secret Santa, and it sounded easy and kinda fun, but then she sent me a HUGE list of instructions. Maybe the list isn’t that bad and I just need another cup of coffee to read through all of it. I’m just not sure. I like the part where I get lots of presents, but I am not keen on asking six of my friends to join. It’s an actual friend who is organizing it, so I trust her. I vowed this holiday season to do more fun stuff and things that were out of my comfort zone. If I can get away with not recruiting six friends I think this might actually be fun. Let’s give this a try and see what happens.

A fierce sandstorm hits southern Algeria and uncovers a lost ruin, its location unknown to modern man… until now. A team led by slacker archaeologist, Harrison “Hank” Boyd, is called in to investigate the find.

In way over his head, Hank must lead his team through countless dangers and survive brutal encounters with enemies both human and inhuman alike. And if that’s not bad enough, a shadowy group with a thirst for violence and a blind ambition is hot on their heels and will stop at nothing to obtain what has been found.

Hank and company should have heeded the warning left by the ancient civilization who built this place. Expertly carved into the face of the golden relief found at the ruin entrance and written in perfect Latin is ‘liberate te ex inferis’… save yourself from hell.

Matthew James’ debut novel is an action-packed thrill-ride reminiscent of Jeremy Robinson, Matthew Reilly, and James Rollins. Sit back and enjoy yourself while getting lost in an adventure like no other.

For twenty long years, Gigi Goldstein has been pining away for her best friend’s guy. She knows it’s wrong and it has to stop, but she hasn’t been able to let go ever since they all met on the bus to summer camp back when they were seven years old. The same week that her best friends finally announce their wedding date, Gigi loses her high-profile design job.

When Gigi finally realizes she can’t escape the present by returning to her past, she’s forced to reexamine her life and find the true meaning of love. But will she be able to mend fences and forgive herself before she loses her one real shot at happiness?

Genre: History

FREE for a limited time

This true story of survival, determination, and incredible luck will lift your spirits and inspire you to never give up on your dreams!

Some people are born lucky. Others make their own luck. As a boy, Hank wanted nothing more than to fly like the fighter pilots he admires in the skies over Amsterdam. When the lives of Dutch citizens are turned upside down with the Nazi occupation of Holland, his dreams will have to wait as he witnesses the tragic unfolding of events affecting those around him before finding himself in a fight for his own life. He must go into hiding before his sixteenth birthday despite the fact that he is not Jewish.

After the war, his life takes another unexpected turn when he is enlisted by his father in the American Army in Germany where his inability to speak English results in hilarious missteps at every turn. He can roll with the punches if the Army will teach him to fly, but when he learns that pilot training stopped with the end of the war, it seems he’ll never reach his goal.

Undaunted, Private Hank evolves into a suave and popular soldier. He learns what it means to be American, arriving in America broke but determined to pursue his lofty goals in a manner only this quirky and very lucky Dutch-American would even think of trying, flying by the seat of his pants to some of the highest levels of aviation.
