From the Jacket Copy:
The first three contemporary western romance novels in the Six Pack Ranch series from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.
Rocky Mountain Heat:
Blake knows that wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off.
Jaxi may have once considered him a big brother, but now she has plans for Blake’s hands. She’s all grown up and ready to convince him that she’s just what he’s been waiting for. Except he can’t seem to see past the big “don’t touch” sign that’s apparently still hanging around her neck.
When the heat between them reaches volcanic levels, Blake must decide if Jaxi’s brand of trouble is worth fighting for.
Rocky Mountain Haven:
Having buried her abusive husband, Beth takes her boys away for a fresh start in Alberta. She definitely doesn’t want another man in her life—until one look at a sex-in-boots cowboy in a Calgary bar blows the dust off her sorely neglected sexuality.
Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth’s come-on, Daniel gives in to the powerful urge to let his normally controlled desires run wild. The lady wants anything-goes sex? She’s got it.
Too late Beth realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart…and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.
Rocky Mountain Desire:
Since Matt’s cheating ex split for the big city, no way is he giving anyone else the chance to drop-kick his heart. Physical pleasure? He’ll take—and give—with gusto, but nothing more.
Hope is scrambling to keep her quilt shop afloat after her sister/business partner ran off. Sex? Like she’s got the time. Besides, Matt would never knock boots with the younger sister of the woman who dumped him.
Yet there’s something combustible going on between them, and though it grows into more, it may not survive the arrival of the last person they ever wanted to see.

Three Great Mysteries In One Package!
Death By A HoneyBee 1
Josiah Reynolds, a former art history professor, was once a celebrity with wealth, social position, and a famous husband. Now all of that is gone. The professor finds her circumstances drastically altered. Retired, Josiah is now a beekeeper trying to stay financially afloat by selling honey at the local Farmers’ Market. She finds her world turned upside down when a man is found dead in her bee yard, only to discover that the victim is her competitor and nemesis. The police suspect the brutal death is murder and Josiah is their number one suspect.
Death By Drowning 2
In the second novel of the series, Josiah survives a forty-foot fall off a cliff only to discover that her nightmare is not over. O’nan’s body is never found and he may be alive. Josiah puts the past behind her but it reaches out, threatening to pull her off the cliff again. Matt, her best friend, and Jake, her physical therapist, stand between Josiah and harm. Even they can’t keep danger at bay. Once again, Josiah makes the rounds of quirky characters found in the lush Bluegrass horse world of Thoroughbreds, oak-cured bourbon and antebellum mansions.
Death By Bridle 3
Josiah is back on the trail of a murderer. Arthur Aaron Greene III is one of Kentucky’s most prominent horsemen, but he is found hanging from the rafters in a horse barn with stones in his pockets and a bucket of water under his feet. The only witness is a nine year old boy who can’t seem to remember exactly what happened. Relentless in her pursuit of the killer, Josiah stumbles into decades of lies and deception that include her dear friend, Lady Elsmere. Josiah discovers that she must go back to 1962 if she is to find out the truth at all!
The Book of You by Claire Kendal $ 1.99
From the Jacket Copy:
A mesmerizing tale of psychological suspense about a woman who must fight to escape an expert manipulator determined to possess her, Claire Kendal’s debut novel is a sophisticated and disturbing portrait of compulsion, control, and terror that will appeal to fans of Before I Go to Sleep, The Silent Wife, and Into the Darkest Corner.
His name is Rafe, and he is everywhere Clarissa turns. At the university where she works. Her favorite sewing shop. The train station. Outside her apartment. His messages choke her voice mail; his gifts litter her mailbox. Since that one regrettable night, his obsession with her has grown, becoming more terrifying with each passing day. And as Rafe has made clear, he will never let her go.
Clarissa’s only escape from this harrowing nightmare is inside a courtroom—where she is a juror on a trial involving a victim whose experiences eerily parallel her own. There she finds some peace and even makes new friends, including an attractive widower named Robert, whose caring attentions make her feel desired and safe. But as a disturbingly violent crime unfolds in the courtroom, Clarissa realizes that to survive she must expose Rafe herself. Conceiving a plan, she begins collecting the evidence of Rafe’s madness to use against him—a record of terror that will force her to relive every excruciating moment she desperately wants to forget. Proof that will reveal the twisted, macabre fairy tale that Rafe has spun around them . . . with an ending more horrifying than her darkest fears.
Masterfully constructed, filled with exquisite tension and a pervasive sense of menace, The Book of You explores the lines between love and compulsion, fantasy and reality, and offers a heart-stopping portrait of a woman determined to survive. Claire Kendal’s extraordinary debut will haunt readers long after it reaches its terrifying, breathtaking conclusion.
A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin $ 3.99
From the Jacket Copy:
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES AND BUZZFEED • Taking place nearly a century before the events of A Game of Thrones, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms compiles the first three official prequel novellas to George R. R. Martin’s ongoing masterwork, A Song of Ice and Fire. These never-before-collected adventures recount an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living consciousness.
Before Tyrion Lannister and Podrick Payne, there was Dunk and Egg. A young, naïve but ultimately courageous hedge knight, Ser Duncan the Tall towers above his rivals—in stature if not experience. Tagging along is his diminutive squire, a boy called Egg—whose true name is hidden from all he and Dunk encounter. Though more improbable heroes may not be found in all of Westeros, great destinies lay ahead for these two . . . as do powerful foes, royal intrigue, and outrageous exploits.
Featuring more than 160 all-new illustrations by Gary Gianni, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is a must-have collection that proves chivalry isn’t dead—yet.
