Title: 
Family Business 2

In his typical jaw-dropping fashion, Carl Weber returns with part 2 to his New York Times bestselling series The Family Business. He's brought along a friend in bestselling author Treasure Hernandez and together they've added more drama and new family member's to the mix.

Welcome to the world of Duncans. By day they are upstanding citizens running one of New York's most respected car dealerships; but by night, they're criminals who control most of the East Coast drug traffic. No matter whether they're on their day or night jobs, one thing is true about the Duncan's: there is never a dull moment to be found.

Baby momma drama has taken over the Duncan clan as a mad scramble ensues to find out who has fathered the Duncan sisters' new babies. Meanwhile, Orlando Duncan, the family's new CEO and a man with his own baby momma problems, has just developed a new product that may make the millionaire Duncans into billionaires. Orlando only has one obstacle in front of him, and it's not law enforcement or one his family's many rivals: it's his mother, and she may be his most formable opponent to date, because she's making the family take sides.

Can a civil war within the Duncan family be averted before it tears them apart? Read more about S2SB2B: Family Business

Redeeming Waters

Must a young woman choose between her commitment to her marriage. . .and to God?

Brianna was ten years old when she first met twenty-five year old David R. Shepherd, a devout and gifted gospel recording artist who would ultimately become world renowned megastar, King d.Avid. He left an impression on Brianna she would never forget. And they were destined to meet again. . .

But despite their bond, the next time Brianna encounters King, she's a lonely young wife seeking solace in religious studies. While Alana's quest for fame has her living a life that seems to be going nowhere fast, King's companionship offers Brianna the deep emotional connection she longs for. But when both a tragedy and a blessing enters Brianna's life, she finds herself wrestling with questions of faith, fidelity, forgiveness, and the sovereignty of God. . .like never before Read more about S2SB2B: Redeeming Waters

Title: 
Come Sunday Morning

Hezekiah T. Cleveland is the young, handsome, and charismatic pastor of the mega church New Testament Cathedral in Los Angeles. He is married to Reverend Samantha Cleveland, a beautiful, sensuous, ambitious, and equally charismatic minister. Samantha is the power behind Hezekiah and New Testament Cathedral. She runs the church and their national television ministry from behind the scenes with a firm, and sometimes cruel, hand. Together they are building a new 25,000 seat mega church.

Hezekiah meets a handsome and passionate social worker named Danny St. John, and the two men fall in love. As they struggle to keep their relationship a secret, Hezekiah alone grapples with the conflict between his religious convictions and his love for a man. Hezekiah comes to the conclusion that he must choose between Danny and his wife.

Samantha has grown bitter and resentful of living in Hezekiah's shadow. She views him as the man who stands between her and the absolute power she desperately craves. She decides to take over the New Testament Cathedral and rid herself of Hezekiah permanently. She seduces and conspires with Hezekiah's nemesis, Reverend Willie Mitchell. Together they conclude that Hezekiah must be killed.

During the Sunday morning sermon in which Hezekiah is about to reveal the double life that he has been living, a shot rings out in the cavernous New Testament Cathedral sanctuary. Hezekiah is killed in front of a live television audience and the shocked members of his congregation. During the pandemonium, Samantha Cleveland skillfully portrays the role of a shocked, frightened, and bereaved wife.

Samantha is installed as the Pastor of New Testament Cathedral after much behind the scenes manipulations. She is praised and embraced by the congregation members as a selfless, God fearing woman who, despite her tragic loss and through her grief, places the good of the ministry and the spiritual well-being of those in need before her own. How long will she be able to carry on this charade? Read more about Come Sunday Morning

House Divided

 

A House Divided:

Life is close to perfect for the Reverend Curtis Black and his wife, Charlotte—except their son Matthew and his girlfriend, Racquel, are about to become parents at the tender age of eighteen. Even though Curtis and Charlotte wish Matthew could focus on Harvard instead of fatherhood, they are determined to welcome their new grandson with open arms. But for Charlotte, welcoming her future in-laws is another story. Try as she might, Charlotte can't stand Racquel's mother, Vanessa—and the feeling appears to be mutual.

When the tension between Charlotte and Vanessa finally erupts, the stress sends an already-fragile Racquel into early labor. Everyone is quick to blame Charlotte, including Matthew and Curtis. Of course, this infuriates Charlotte—the idea that her husband would side with someone else—and it strains the relationship she and Curtis have only recently been able to repair. Her one ally, though, is Racquel's father, but that brings problems of its own.

While Charlotte schemes against Vanessa, Curtis is consumed with his own concerns about Deliverance Outreach. A mysterious figure from his past has been sending Curtis cryptic messages threatening to take away Curtis's coveted position as senior pastor and destroy everything he has worked so hard for. But who could hate Curtis that much? And how can he fight an enemy he can't even name?

Times of trouble are descending upon the Black family in more ways than one. Will they be able to overcome their challenges and stand together against someone who could take it all away? Or is the Black family finally out of miracles? Read more about S2SB2B: House Divided

Title: 
Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself? Read more about Time Out Book Club: Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Title: 
Stupid Fast

I AM NOT STUPID FUNNY.
I AM STUPID FAST.

My name is Felton Reinstein, which is not a fast name. But last November, my voice finally dropped and I grew all this hair and then I got stupid fast. Fast like a donkey. Zing!

Now they want me, the guy they used to call Squirrel Nut, to try out for the football team. With the jocks. But will that fix my mom? Make my brother stop dressing like a pirate? Most important, will it get me girls-especially Aleah? 

So I train. And I run. And I sneak off to Aleah's house in the night. But deep down I know I can't run forever. And I wonder what will happen when I finally have to stop. Read more about Time Out Book Club: Stupid Fast

Title: 
Hold Me Closer Necromancer

Sam leads a pretty normal life. He may not have the most exciting job in the world, but he’s doing all right—until a fast food prank brings him to the attention of Douglas, a creepy guy with an intense violent streak.

Turns out Douglas is a necromancer who raises the dead for cash and sees potential in Sam. Then Sam discovers he’s a necromancer too, but with strangely latent powers. And his worst nightmare wants to join forces . . . or else.  

With only a week to figure things out, Sam needs all the help he can get. Luckily he lives in Seattle, which has nearly as many paranormal types as it does coffee places. But even with newfound friends, will Sam be able to save his skin? Read more about Time Out Book Club: Hold Me Closer
