What happens when a Regency lady crosses paths with a spy? Sparks! Lots of them. And that’s what the Secrets of the Zodiac is all about. The Lady Dauntless is the fourth book in the series, but it’s a great place to start reading, even if you haven’t picked up any other titles. (But the first one, A Heartless Design, is free!)

The roguish hero, Logan, is an agent of a super-secret group called the Zodiac, which is sworn to protect Britain against all enemies. Logan’s tough, but he meets his match in Gemma. She’s clever, competitive, and knows just a little too much about the enemy he’s investigating. So of course she catches Logan’s eye…

I love Jane Austen’s books. I also love James Bond movies. So it was no-brainer to write about spies in a Regency setting. On the one hand, I get to dream up gorgeous ballgowns and write witty conversations. On the other hand, I send my characters running for their lives though the London underworld. Whether they’re evading bad scones or master criminals, there’s always something happening. All my ladies have skills that go way beyond the usual expectations for the age. Gemma, for instance, is a sharpshooter and also may know a little bit about smuggling (no spoilers!) I also wanted to make my hero different, so Logan comes from a lower-class background than his fellow agents, and he also may know a little bit about piracy (no spoilers!). Why should dukes get to have all the fun?

The Lady Dauntless was especially thrilling to write because the action takes place not just in the ballrooms (and bedrooms) of London, but also in Scotland, with some side trips to Bermuda—and what’s more James Bondian than that? Unfortunately, I didn’t actually get to travel to Bermuda for “research.” Maybe next time!

The first book in this action-packed, wildly original fantasy series by New York Times Bestselling Author Jasmine Walt.

In the city of Solantha, mages rule absolute, with shifters considered second-class citizens and humans something in between. No one outside the mage families are allowed to have magic, and anyone born with it must agree to have it stripped from them to avoid execution.

Sunaya Baine, a shifter-mage hybrid, has managed to keep her unruly magic under wraps for the last twenty-four years. But while chasing down a shifter-hunting serial killer, she loses control of her magic in front of witnesses, drawing the attention of the dangerous and enigmatic Chief Mage.

Locked up in the Chief Mage's castle and reduced to little more than a lab rat, Sunaya resists his attempts to analyze and control her at every turn. But she soon realizes that to regain her freedom and catch the killer, she must overcome her hatred of mages and win the most powerful mage in the city to her side.

Incognito - a darkly entertaining thriller by Khaled Talib

Incognito - a darkly entertaining thriller by Khaled Talib

When I set out to write INCOGNITO, I was told by industry people it was impossible to kidnap the Pope.

You can't just write a novel and create a scene where he gets kidnapped. It has to sound believable, even though the premise is fiction.

But I found a way that sounds plausible after researching everything about the Vatican. Now, advanced readers, including one known industry personality in the United Kingdom, has this to say after reading the novel:
"The premise of such a kidnap is really darkly entertaining and sometimes I think almost highly likely!"

"Dark" seems to be the keyword as another reader left a review on Goodreads that reads, "Definitely the darkest intellectual thriller novel I've read this year!"

Incognito is a story about religion and politics, particularly Islamophobia, Christianity, the refugee crisis, the sudden rise of fascism in parts of Europe and NATO's fear.

The protagonist Ayden Tanner does not believe in God. But he is assigned to find the Pope who is missing.

The question is, how much effort will he put in this mission? Will he risk his life to save someone who has nothing in common with him?
