A New Suspense-filled Fantasy Epic. When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded on the streets of Bunard, Willet Dunham is called to investigate. Yet the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers. As Willet begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word. Willet returns to the city, no closer to answers than before, but his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, a twist seen at the edge of his vision, and it's as though he can see their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he's been passed the rarest gift of all: a gift that's not supposed to exist. Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he's pulled into a much more dangerous and epic conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world--a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his own tortured past if he wants to survive.

The Messiah Conspiracy - The Race To Clone Jesus Christ : (Book One): A Gripping Top Ten Medical Suspense Thriller Conspiracy

The most gripping science fiction medical thriller you will ever read!

The Ideal Book to be reading this Christmas! Could this really happen in the near future? For all thriller fans and readers of Dan Brown, Sam Bourne, Scott Mariani and John Lyman.

The Messiah Conspiracy is a fictional thriller which takes place in the field of genetics and human cloning.

Hugely controversial, you will either love this book or hate it. Some will feel challenged and uncomfortable by the topic it deals with, and others will be drawn into it and unable to put it down... the question is, what will you think?

A young student at Oxford University has an idea for his doctor's thesis (PhD), which fulfils not only the criteria for 'originality', but goes far beyond it. For if Jason Dyke is right, his idea will soon change the world and shift the delicate balance of power from one nation to another.

Jason's idea is simple: In the genetics laboratory at Oxford University, he will clone Jesus Christ.

But when the CIA finds out about his plan, the President of America realises that if the UK succeeds, the balance of power will shift from the USA to Europe. And he realises that the only way to stop this happening is for America to create its very own clone of Jesus Christ.

The race is on...

Whoever reads this book will never forget it. And they will ask....one of two questions:-

1: Is it really possible?

2: When will it happen?



What people have been saying about this book:-

Awesome Read: 'I read many books and this one was one of the best I have read. I loved it and think I will read it more than twice. It was the kind of book that was almost impossible to put down. Very glad I bought it and would recommend it to everyone.'

A Thumping Good 'Must' Read!: ' 'Browsing the Kindle store for something to 'unwind' me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. The characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non-believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!! Far better than the Da Vinci Code by a country mile, I am certainly recommending this to all my many friends.' '

Well Written: 'I was looking at a different book, Dan Brown Inferno and this title came up on a reviewers comments suggesting it to be worth a read. I have to agree, it is. Loved the idea of cloning Jesus and for me it was written well, had page turning elements to it but I was disappointed when it ended. In a nice way though! It does leave one hanging...'

Totally preposterous, but enthralling! : 'I just happened on this book while browsing to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let's be honest - recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to anyone else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is - a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!'

Book One of Two Parts: Please note that Book One continues seamlessly into and is concluded in Book Two. Trying Book One is an excellent way to get to know this exciting new author! Alternatively, readers are recommended to purchase the full omnibus edition containing both Book One and Book Two. Readers may now borrow Book Two free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

Follow Crystal as she battles for freedom from celebrity cult, the S.O.T., and forms a team of ex-S.O.T. members, including a male model and the lead singer of a boyband, to bring the S.O.T. down. Will they succeed, or are they too spoiled to pay the price?

Searchlight

A heart-rending tragedy. A passionate love. A firm resolution.

Ambition

For as long as Crystal remembers, she has wanted to be a singer.

For as long as she remembers, her parents have feared the SOT, a celebrity cult that will make you famous, but destroy you in the process.

When Luke, leader of the SOT, sets his sights on Crystal will she have the courage to stand her ground, or will she give in?

Destruction

After the SOT deals a deadly blow, Crystal has no choice but to obey their orders to sign up for Searchlight. Searchlight is the biggest talent show on TV. With the SOT's backing, Crystal could win, but is she willing to pay the price? When she unexpectedly finds love, she is afraid that darkly handsome Juda could become an SOT target too.

At Searchlight, her dreams and nightmares collide. According to Juda, it's the darkest places that need light the most, but the SOT is much darker than Crystal imagined.

Heartbreak

Not everything is what it seems to be, and not everyone is who they say they are. Crystal is tough, but she's only human. There's only so much heartache and betrayal one girl can take.

Then she is tested and forced to make a choice.

It's a choice between light and darkness.

Good and evil.

Faith and despair.

Choosing God could mean choosing death.

Surrender

Everyone has a limit...

...and Crystal is steadily getting closer to hers. She thought she could escape the SOT, but now they have her and there seems to be no way out. Some people think she has everything, but she knows she has nothing. Is she ever going to break free? And is the mysterious Juda a friend or foe?

Everyone is scared of something...

...and fear itself is the worst enemy of all. Crystal wants to hold on, but her fears enable the SOT to drag her to darker depths than she ever thought possible; depths from which she must claw her way back if she is ever going to regain her freedom.

The pressure is on, and Crystal must either fight or be broken. It all comes down to one question: Who will she surrender to?

Insurrection

The Determination of a Victim.

Crystal has survived eighteen months of trauma at the hands of the SOT. She now has two options: she can either fade into obscurity, or fight. She chooses to fight--along with her team of unlikely alliances. But as their plans come together, doubts are never far away. Can she really trust her team, or will they give up at the first hurdle? And, are they on a suicide mission, or can they really bring down the SOT?

Crystal will stop at nothing to achieve her aim, but she must pay a high price, and decide whether the cost is worth it.

Unlikely Love: A Clean & Wholesome Love Story, Book 1 (The Carlisle Sisters)

Bethany Carlisle has been summoned home to Texas, along with her two estranged sisters, Tracy & Jennifer, to settle the significant estate of their abusive father, Jonas. After raising his family in poverty & turmoil in the dilapidated embarrassment that he had the nerve to call a 'bed & breakfast', Jonas had somehow turned it all around after the death of his wife and the departure of his daughters. Cozy Cabins, now better known as The Sea View Resort, is considered to be one of the top 10 resorts in the country. And it is worth a fortune; a fortune the Carlisle sisters are about to inherit now that Jonas has died.

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. Rather than simply selling each of their stakes and returning to their own lives like all three of the sisters would like to do, Jonas had just one stipulation in his will: to receive their fair share, the sisters had to remain at The Sea View and play an active role in its day to day management. Failure to do so would result in the forfeit of their portion of the inheritance; an inheritance worth tens of millions of dollars.

So, rather than heading back to each of their own lives with a fat check and a fading memory of what was once their lives, the sisters are thrown together in an endeavor for which none of them is sufficiently qualified. Luckily, they have Jonas's old partner, Greyson Merrick, to help run the business and teach them what it takes to run a top-notch, luxury resort. Only Greyson, who was led to believe by his unscrupulous (and now deceased) partner that he was in line to inherit the resort, is not so keen on sharing the wealth.

It's not that he doesn't have enough wealth and power of his own already. Greyson Merrick has plenty of both. But he helped grow The Sea View from the beginning and it's only fair that it pass into his hands. So, needless to say, he's reluctant to help the Carlisle sisters steal his legacy from him.

But when the youngest sister, Bethany, decides that a private, face-to-face meeting between she & Greyson is in order and shows up at his penthouse apartment unannounced to explore their options, things quickly escalate. During their discussion, Greyson unexpectedly takes control of the situation and surprises Bethany with a passionate kiss. She considers stopping him, aware that their relationship should remain a professional one, but cannot bring herself to do so. There's just something about this man that makes her want...more. And when things start going wrong at The Sea View and a note demanding $5 million arrives at the main office, Bethany finds that it's nice to have someone on whom she can depend.

Between the memories that returning home has stirred up, the stress of dealing with her sisters & the attraction that is quickly growing between she & Greyson as they work to protect The Sea View from its saboteur, Bethany is overwhelmed. But Greyson may be exactly who and what she needs to get through her difficult time. It's an Unlikely Love that seems to have shown up at exactly the right time in her life and she'd be crazy if she didn't at least give it a chance!
