From New York Times bestselling author, Toni Anderson, comes a heart-wrenching, emotional story about love, friendship, and the importance of keeping promises--and Alex Parker discovers he's not as alone as he once was. In the midst of wedding preparations, a shadowy figure from Alex Parker's past reappears and threatens the joy he's found with Mallory Rooney. Four years ago, Jane Sanders's rich and powerful ex-husband kidnapped their young daughter and Jane hasn't seen her since. Now she finally has a lead on her location and she knows just the man to help her get her daughter back. Trouble is, he's an assassin. And he terrifies her. Despite his upcoming nuptials, Alex agrees to help, but it doesn't take long for the routine operation to turn complicated--and deadly. Can the former assassin make it home in time to marry the woman he loves, or will his dark past destroy all hope for their future? A Cold Dark Promise takes place during the week leading up to the wedding of former CIA assassin Alex Parker to FBI Agent Mallory Rooney, who first meet in the novel, A Cold Dark Place. A Cold Dark Promise can be read as a standalone novella, but readers might get more enjoyment if they read A Cold Dark Place (FREE as an ebook) first.

J Sansom and Harriet Smart. '[Perry] writes with detail that invades the senses' - Lincoln Journal Star Three days before Christmas, in the freezing slums of London's East End, thirteen-year-old Gracie Phipps encounters Minnie Maude Mudway, who is only eight, alone, and determined to find her friend Charlie. However Charlie is no ordinary companion: He is a donkey who belonged to Minnie Maude's Uncle Alf. Gracie is shocked to learn that only the day before, someone brutally murdered Uncle Alf and made off with his rag-and-bones cart and the beloved beast who pulled it. Now, come hell or high water, Minnie Maude means to rescue Charlie-and Gracie decides to help. But the path that Uncle Alf had taken to his death was not his regular route, and in his cart were not just the usual bits of worn silver and china but also, the children are told, a dazzling golden box. What its contents may have been no one can say, for, like Charlie and the cart, it too has vanished. Uncertain where their four-legged friend may be, the children are drawn into an adult world far beyond their innocent imaginings. And in a shop gleaming with beautiful objects, they recruit an unexpected ally: Mr. Balthasar, who warns them that the shining prize may be just a Pandora's box of evil... What readers are saying about A Christmas Promise: 'You feel you are there in Victorian England with all the smells, sights and sounds that accompany the story-telling' 'Very atmospheric, entertaining, well written and just that bit different' 'Five stars'

“If there remains any doubt about Allan Gurganus’s literary greatness, Local Souls should put this to rest forever.”—Jamie Quatro, New York Times Book Review Decoy, the concluding novella of Allan Gurganus’s hugely acclaimed Local Souls, was hailed as the standout of that work. Critics called it “humane, profound, hilarious, nostalgic, the literary equivalent of a bare-knuckled knockout punch” (Miami Herald). Like Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Remains of the Day it is a haunting lyrical portrayal of a life half-led. Set in mythical Falls, North Carolina, this mysterious and compelling tale maps the lifelong eroticized friendship between two married men. When Doc Roper, the town’s beloved physician, announces he is retiring from practice to carve exquisite duck decoys, he triggers an epidemic of catastrophes. His dependent patient and next-door neighbor, Bill Mabry, feels cut loose. Then the close-knit town is devastated by a flood of near-biblical proportions. Working inexorably “to an unexpected moment of catharsis” (Dwight Garner, New York Times) Decoy—already emerging as an essential work of American literature—charts the tender border between life and death.

In this original enovella complementing the bestselling Septimus Heap series, DomDaniel returns in a hilarious escapade with the witches of the Port Witch Coven. The witches want DomDaniel's powerful Darke Toad – and will go to ridiculous lengths to get their hands on it. But first, Simon Heap must get his master to the Port Witch Coven's door, which may require a bit more Darke Magyk – and a much stronger stomach – than he bargained for. Meanwhile, ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand has taken her young Apprentice, Septimus Heap, on a field trip to the Port. But what Marcia had hoped would be a fun yet educational outing quickly turns chaotic, for it slipped Marcia's mind that tonight is Hallowseeth – the perfect night for Darke mischief to go unnoticed among the revellers. With Angie Sage's characteristic humour, beloved characters, and Magykal setting, The Darke Toad is a must-read for every Septimus Heap fan.
