"This is not the night you die." After years of working for a loan shark, Robert is done with blood and violence. All he has to show for it is a bag of money and a lifetime of regrets. There's no other way out of his line of work than in a body bag. So Robert decides to die. But on the night he chooses to seal his own fate, destiny offers him a chance at redemption. When Robert saves a handsome young escort from a terrible death, he has no idea he is setting in motion much more than one last attempt at proving that inside the hardened shell, he is a decent human being. Charming, quick-witted, and full of smiles, Nathan is all Robert could dream of. He's also ready to fall into the arms of his gruff protector. Robert, on the other hand, has never been with a man and will first need to fight his own demons if he is to accept that his whole being wants to make Nathan his. With his former boss hunting them both, time is ticking, and Robert might just not get the chance to decide before it's too late. More importantly though, Robert will stop at nothing to protect the man who's made him feel alive again, the man who is the only thing between him and the abyss. * "I never had to think much about death before, but I did yesterday.

After passing through the portal to another realm… ...Ted Finley must put his trust in unlikely allies to survive. The Realm of Souls is a war zone, and Ted and Natalie are behind enemy lines. Badly injured and powerless, the two strangers to a new world must rely on a mysterious woman and her village to live to see another day. Erica LaPlante is down to her second-to-last option. Only a coordinated effort from Jennifer, Dhiraj, Travis and the rest of the gang will keep Erica from her last resort: death and regeneration. But fugitives at large can't hide forever, and some of them won't live long enough to clear their names. The Light, the Dark and the Ugly is the fourth novel in a YA Sci-Fi Fantasy series that features exhilarating combat, deadly foes, sharp humor, and a little romance. Author Bryan Cohen's Ted Saves the World series breaks darker ground in a chilling, action-packed fourth installment. Q & A With The Author Q - How would you describe the Ted Saves the World series? A - That's a stumper! I've always loved reading books and watching TV shows that mix genres together. It's like a buffet. How can you choose just one? Ted Saves the World is a combination of several different genres. It has the elements of a YA sci-fi fantasy series, but you might also call it a collection of paranormal books for teens and young adults. I've always loved horror books for teens and coming of age series best sellers as well, so you'll find a few dashes of each in the series too. Q - Why did you want to write superhero novels? A - I love challenges. Every year, I try to take on something new. I'd written some nonfiction, but I wanted to try writing young adult books for boys and girls alike. That's why it was important for me to write super-powered male and female characters. Also, given the recent boom of Marvel superheroes on the big screen, I wanted to take my own crack at the genre. Q - What does it mean to you when readers buy your books? A - It's an honor. Who knows if I'll ever be one of the young adult best sellers at the top of the list, but it's so amazing to see people reading my books. Like most writers, I used to think I wasn't good enough, so I didn't try. With the encouragement of my friends, family members, and readers, I was able to give this series a go. I'm eternally grateful for each reader who puts my books on their virtual shelf. Young Adult Sci-Fi and Fantasy Superhero - Suitable Age Range: 12 - 18+ yrs.

A daring mission takes Tory and Rebecca and their friends into the heart of the Army of Boulogne, where Napoleon is plotting invasion. But while their success may save England, they must still face the bittersweet consequences of their decisions when they return home. Dark Destiny is the thrilling conclusion to M.J.
