Cryptid: Discovery

Cryptid: Discovery
Cryptid Trilogy Set 1
by Douglas E. Roff and Jacob A. Roff
Genre: Horror, Thriller

Adam St. James, software genius and savant Chief Technologist of the

massive American DataLab Project, had just returned to his home in

Barrows Bay, British Columbia from Tucson, Arizona. He had spent the

better part of the past month working on a pro bono assignment for

his father’s friend Peter Berg, Regional Director of the FBI,

working out of the Seattle field office. His favor for the FBI was to

secure the mother lode and Holy Grail of the FBI’s Joint Organized

Crime Task Force that Berg believed he had accidentally stumbled

upon. Mere fortuity had led him to what he thought was fifty years or

more of Mafia financial books and records detailing organized

criminality from Seattle to Miami and all points in between.

What Adam found was nothing even remotely resembling what Regional

Director Berg was looking for. It had been a small clerical error

made by a temp transposing a letter or two in a last name that led

Adam St. James to his incredible discovery. But this discovery was

too incredible, too massive to even contemplate as being authentic.

Adam himself did not believe it could be true. Would he be proven

correct or was the truth too immeasurably stranger than fiction?

If Adam had accidently stumbled upon a great discovery, it would mean

that he had fortuitously confirmed the existence of the cryptid of

all cryptids. Had Adam found scientific and verifiable proof of the

existence of an unknown species of creatures capable of transforming

to human form or was this some immense practical joke designed to

annoy and embarrass him and his father, noted forensic archeologist

and author, Edward St. James?

His journey will be fantastic. His discovery, if true, immense.

But will Adam and his eclectic family survive discovery? Will

humanity?

Cryptid:

Discovery chronicles the discovery of the Gens Collective, ancient

and primal beings previously unknown to humanity but living among

mankind as crypto humans.

They live among us.

Murder, intrigue, deception, treachery, lust and betrayal all come together

in the Cryptid Trilogy as mankind faces off against an unknown

species bent on its total destruction as the dominant species on the

planet.

Adam continues to develop his amazing natural abilities as he seeks to

understand and control them. How will this saga end?

Cryptid: Probe
Cryptid Trilogy Set 2
They live among us.

Working with his father, renowned archeologist Edward St. James, and his new

wife, Misti Alarcon, Adam St. James continues his investigation into

the Gens Collective and its rival rebel faction, the Black Shirts.

Both factions seek the demise of homo sapiens and have developed the

means to destroy humanity in what they call the Great Cull. And they

seek to destroy each other.

As Adam continues his dialog with Paulo Fortizi, leader of the Gens

Collective, he is met with deceit and duplicity at every turn. The

Gens Collective desperately seeks to find Adam, who they call the

Human, and recover their lost Library.

Adam continues to develop extraordinary new mental abilities with a close

group of colleagues and finds his new abilities are more powerful and

frightening than he could possibly imagine. Can he control his powers

or will they be his undoing?

With the addition of the beautiful and mysterious Alana McCarthy, world

renowned NSA computer hacker, and the equally mysterious and lethal

Nocera “Noki” Lee, Adam confronts his adversaries uncovering the

depth and breadth of the plot against humanity. Can they succeed?

Only Adam holds the key to prevent unleashing total

annihilation.

The mysterious Cardinal Bellinelli plots against the Black Shirts and the

Gens Collective to spark a war between the Gens and humanity he

believes will eliminate the Gens species on the planet. Does the

Vatican hold the answers Adam seeks? Which side will the Vatican

choose and why?

Murder, treachery and betrayal combine with unexpected twists and turns, as

events pit friend against friend, family against family, and species

against species. Nothing is as it appears to be, and new discoveries

shed light upon old grievances.

The Black Shirts and their charismatic leader, Saldana Ri, develop the

means to destroy the rival Gens Collective and humanity, but will

they unleash the devastation? Can they? What explosive secrets does

Saldana hide that could destroy her leadership and shift the balance

of power back to her rival, Paulo Fortizi of the Gens Collective.

With the means of destruction of humanity complete, it’s a race against

time to prevent genocide on a global scale. Can Adam stop the

impending holocaust? Can anyone?

With the fate of mankind and the Gens Nation hanging in the balance,

forces array against Adam and his teams trying to prevent the

conflagration that could signal the demise of intelligent life on the

planet.

New tech, new weapons and new adversaries, along with new powers never

thought to exist, entertain the reader throughout the novel. New mind

journeys and psychic powers begin to reveal themselves as both the

savior and destructor of humanity.

Canada. Citizen of the US and Canada. Worked for US and Canadian

governments as well as a long career in finance and trade finance. I

between a man who is a complete anathema to her family – but makes

Millie feel alive – or to languish in her status quo.

RELEASE BLITZ

Title: Crave

Series: The Gibson Boys #3

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Contemporary Romance

BLURB Hadley Jacobs is over Machlan Gibson.

Sure, she’ll always be a little weak to the dimple in his right cheek and the way his five o’clock shadow makes him ruggedly handsome. But that’s not enough to cover every other thing about him because they all drive her nuts. Like how he’s won’t admit he’s wrong even when he knows it and how he drives his stupid car a million miles an hour on wet asphalt. As she rolls back into town and takes a seat at Crave, she won’t take the bait. She’s over him. Mostly.

Machlan isn’t over her.

It’s not because he hasn’t tried. He reminds himself over and over that she’s not the girl for him. After all, she drives him insane with her sassy attitude and the way she calls him out on everything. She beats him at poker, even though she doesn’t know the difference between a straight and a flush, and when she looks at him with her bright, blue eyes, it’s unnerving. When she climbs onto that bar stool and orders a drink, he puts it in front of her and ignores the sparkle in her eyes. He’s not over her, but she won’t know that.

But she does know that. And he knows she’s not as over him as she’s pretending to be. When life forces their hand this time, there’s more on the line than a pile of poker chips. It’s their forever.

Crave is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.

SAVOR ME

KITCHEN GODS, BOOK 3

BETH BOLDEN

M/M ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: 10.02.18

Savor Me Cover

COVER DESIGN: AngstyG

BLURB

When Chef Xander Bridges leaves the warmth and safety of his car on a cold, stormy night and approaches a stranger, the last thing he expects to find is a future. He’s wanted to leave his job for a while, but with no good opportunities on the horizon, he’s been stuck in a long, painful rut. But when he befriends the stranger viciously tearing up his own vineyard, Xander discovers something inexplicable. Maybe he’s not the bitter, sarcastic man that everyone, including himself, has endured for years.

Maybe, with someone like Damon in his life, he could be something more. Something better.

Damon Hess doesn’t just want more, he demands it. With his alcoholic past, there are no gray areas for him. Only black and white. In love or not. Sober or drunk. But the chance meeting with Xander opens Damon’s eyes, and gives him a vision full of something he hasn’t experienced in years: hope.

Hope that he can expect companionship and affection, hope that he doesn’t have to grapple with his family’s questionable Napa legacy any longer, and most importantly, hope that there’s a future worth believing in. But the longer he and Xander spend cultivating that future, the more Damon realizes that the key is so much simpler than he ever imagined–it’s Xander.

Savor Me is an 80,000 word contemporary m/m romance starring an irascible man with a soft, gooey marshmallow center and another who knows he likes men, but has never been with one before. It is third in the Kitchen Gods series, but can be read as a standalone.

EXCERPT

Hands down, it was one of the best meals Damon had ever eaten. Even though he’d watched Xander prep it with his own two hands, it was a marvel that he’d done it with only those hands. It

was a far better meal than any he’d ever had at Terroir, and that was prepared by an entire staff and countless pieces of expensive equipment.

Xander had come to his house with a bag of groceries and a knife, borrowed a pan and a pizza cutter, and had made an astoundingly delicious meal. It was talent and drive, all wrapped up in one package.

A cute package.

Damon had been telling himself not to notice—or if he was going to notice, then he should just ignore the attraction. But sitting across from Xander, staring at him in the candlelight, it was much harder than he’d imagined. Especially when he looked relaxed and much more at peace than he had that night a year ago.

At first he’d been too worked up himself to notice the anxiousness that Xander wore like a cloak. Or a very difficult-to-scale wall complete with archers equipped with fiery arrows and soldiers pouring boiling oil.

But tonight his guard had fallen a little, and despite everything, Damon wanted desperately to believe it was more than just quitting a job he’d really hated.

Damon wanted to believe the smile on Xander’s face had something to do with him.

“Thank you,” Damon said. “If that was an audition, you nailed it.”

“I know.” He was a little smug, and it was more than a little adorable. The way his nose scrunched up, the eye crinkles, the expressive look in his dark brown eyes.

Damon had imagined he might be in danger, hanging around Xander all the time, especially considering the impression he’d made on him in such a short time, but this was Trouble with a capital t.

“You’d better watch yourself. Not sure your head’s gonna fit back through the back door,” Damon teased.

“You wanted a chef,” Xander said, spreading his arms. “You got one.”

“They’re sort of thick on the ground in Napa,” Damon softly insisted, “but it turns out I’m particular.”

“Imagine that, a Hess particular.” The sarcasm in Xander’s voice cut through the dreamy romantic quality of the candlelight and let in a little of the real world. Specifically his family.

He couldn’t exactly tell Xander he didn’t ever want to talk about his family. After all, this land was their legacy, and his trust fund was making the restaurant a reality. Truth was, he really didn’t want to talk about them, and it felt like Xander brought them up as some sort of defense mechanism. Damon still didn’t understand why, and this was definitely not the first time it had happened.

“What’s your deal with the Hesses?” Damon asked. Might as well be honest, at least before Xander walked back in the house and signed the contract that would tie them together for the near future. Of course, that also meant the question had barely made it out of his mouth.

Something ugly churned deep in his stomach, exactly the opposite reaction he should have had after that incredible meal.

What if he changes his mind?

“Nothing,” Xander said, but his chin was jutting out again, and his fingers were drumming anxiously against the wood tabletop. It sure didn’t look like nothing.

There was a definite voice in his head, begging him to leave it, to make sure he didn’t drive Xander away with his insistent questioning. After all, Xander wasn’t signing with Hess Vineyards, he was signing with Damon, who stayed as far away from his family as possible.

But Damon’s last name was still Hess, and it wasn’t going to change.

“Really?” Damon asked.

Xander sighed. “I said it was nothing, and it is. It’s stupid.”

“I don’t want it to interfere,” Damon offered. “Not with what we’re about to build.”

“It won’t. I promise. I know you’re not your family. And to be honest, that’s what it is. I’ve had a few run-ins with Hess employees. But you’re not like them.”

The thing Damon had discovered before coming back to Napa, and definitely after returning to the Valley, was that he could run as far and as hard as he could, but his family was still his family. Time and distance couldn’t alter his blood, no matter how much he wished otherwise.

Blurb
Life had always been good to me, and I made sure to keep it that way.
My mom had given me the only tool I’d need to succeed—manipulation. Add to that
the fact I was beautiful, confident, and rich, and I was on my way to having it
all.
My name is Annabelle, and I was the stereotypical head cheerleader,
dating the star quarterback. The school was mine, and I couldn’t wait to be
crowned prom queen.
One night, my world changed forever. All I believed my future would
hold was ripped from my grasp in a ball of flames. I lost my identity, my
boyfriend, and my friends. Suddenly, I was the monster nobody wanted around.
A scarf hid my true identity, and I was left staring at the beast in
the mirror. My appearance now matched the ugliness I once had inside, but I’d
do everything I could to prove I still had some beauty buried deep within.
Sometimes, you have to lose who you are to become who you were meant to
be.
