Amazon Synopsis: An ancient fundamentalist organization executes several attacks simultaneously across the globe. In the Pentagon a deadly viral compound is unleashed and the airborne virus turns the Pentagon’s population into zombies. A Secret Service agent, coerced by the terrorists to assassinate several heads of state, sends the world into chaos.
A former Army officer stranded in the Midwest is forced to fight for his life while his fiancé is trapped in the Washington, DC quarantine zone.
They must each fight for their own survival as the nation battles to end the zombie threat before it becomes a global pandemic.
See, this is the type of book that makes me drool. Its got all these delicious action-y elements, the biological bent with virus, and a terrorist attack. It just makes my cold, miserly little heart go all mushy. – $5.99 on Amazon today.
Amazon Synopsis: Harmony Black is much more than your average FBI special agent. In addition to being a practicing witch, she’s also an operative for Vigilant Lock, an off-the-books program created to battle occult threats—by any means necessary. Despite her dedication to fighting the monsters threatening society, Harmony has become deeply conflicted about her job. Her last investigation resulted in a pile of dead bodies, and she suspects the wrong people are being punished for it.
While on a much-needed vacation, Harmony gets pulled back into action. This time, though, she’s gone from solo work to being part of a team. Their target: the Bogeyman, a vicious and elusive figure…and the creature that destroyed Harmony’s childhood.
Surrounded by quirky, fascinating characters as dedicated to one another as they are to their new partner, Harmony must learn to trust her team—and a new romantic interest—on a dangerous and deadly mission that conjures up memories she’d much rather forget.
Okay, so lets be honest, this probably isn’t going to be that good. However, I’m instinctively drawn to this whole idea of a supernatural tale with a kick-ass heroine (aka Anita Blake before all she became interested in was sex.) – $5.99 on on Amazon today.
Amazon Synopsis: Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.
Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze.
As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.
Yes, this was on my list last week. I don’t care. This is MY you can buy me for Valentine’s list 🙂 …and I seriously want this book so bad. Just not bad enough to spend the $13.99 Amazon is asking for it right now.
