Bent, Not Broken Book Review:

Defense attorney Madden Polunin is good at his job. He works alongside the Kings of Men MC and is known, and hated, by the New Gothenburg PD for getting his clients cleared of charges that should have sent them to jail. Straitlaced Officer Evan Slater loathes everything about Madden, from his charismatic personality that helps free criminals, to how hard it is to pronounce his ridiculous last name. Polunin makes Evan's job more difficult than it needs to be, and Polunin's smug smile fuels Evan's anger. In a night of celebration, Madden ends up drugged and runs into Evan, which begins a turmoiled relationship between a self-declared "straight" police officer and a lawyer only interested in one-night stands. Between criminal arrests, a serial killer father locked behind bars, and a negligent work partner, Madden's and Evan's lives collide in ways they never expected. Includes the novella, Curved.

Staking His Claim Book Review:

I told him to leave. He told me I was his.... The Intern Jaxson Bell has one goal: advancing his career by any means possible. Sleeping with men to further his aspirations isn't uncommon for Jaxson, and his next target is obvious-the deputy mayor. Flirting with Vane is easy because he's handsome, charming, confident, and knows exactly what Jaxson wants. It's effortless to make a deal with Vane, who's more than happy to exchange sex for a job at city hall. What Jaxson doesn't expect is the very unusual kink Vane obsesses over. The oddness should be a deal breaker, but it only has Jaxson more interested. The Deputy Mayor Vane Elwood knows exactly what Jaxson wants the moment he approaches him because, at heart, he's the same kind of ruthless man. He loves sex, and if he can get it free for the simple exchange of a job, he will. Vane anticipates a hasty exit from Jaxson as soon as he discovers Vane's secret kink. To his surprise, Jaxson not only sticks around but seems to be excited. The Right Kind of Dirty Their relationship is meant to be purely physical, but as feelings grow, Vane and Jaxson will have to decide what to do. Vane has a reputation to uphold, and Jaxson has never had a relationship. If news gets out that the deputy mayor is sleeping with his new assistant, their careers could implode. They'll need to use every trick in the book to keep each other.

Sold For The Night Book Review:

He is a predator, and I am his prey . . . . Prey: The Rabbit Mark Fenton, assistant to the mayor, never regretted opening his mouth more than he did when he insulted Madam Winters' establishment, the Courtesan Hotel. Now he's being sold off for a night in the summer auction. It's small comfort that part of the proceeds benefit charity. The man who buys Mark's time, Camden, is wild and unruly. He's not Mark's type, from his giant body to his rough nature, but the more time Mark spends with Camden, the more he finds himself having fun. Predator: The Wolf Camden Wolf knows what he likes-redheads who want to be pursued-and Mark appears to be exactly that. When Madam Winters tells Camden about the feisty man she has ready for the auction block, he can't resist putting a claim on Mark. Chasing him has Camden's inner primal nature excited, and he can't get enough of Mark. But as much as they are having fun, Mark is skittish. Attack and Capture Mark fits into Camden's life like a missing puzzle piece, and Camden's daughters and his best friend/ex-wife love Mark. But convincing him they can have a future is difficult, especially when all Mark wants to do is run away in fear. Luckily Camden is the kind of man who loves a challenge, and he has plans to make Mark his in every single way.

The Lone Star Defenders: A Chronicle of the Third Texas Cavalry, Ross' Brigade Book Review:

ÊAs my recollections of the war between the States, or the Confederate War, in which four of the best years of my life (May, 1861, to May, 1865) were given to the service of the Confederate States of America, are to be written at the earnest request of my children, and mainly for their gratification, it is, perhaps, proper to preface the recital by going back a few years in order to give a little family history. I was born in what is now the suburbs of the town of Gurley in Madison County, Alabama, on the 9th day of November, 1834. My father, Samuel Boulds Barron, was born in South Carolina in 1793. His father, James Barron, as I understand, was a native of Ireland. My motherÕs maiden name was Martha Cotten, daughter of James Cotten, who was from Guilford County, North Carolina, and who was in the battle of Guilford Court House, at the age of sixteen. His future wife, Nancy Johnson, was then a young girl living in hearing of the battle at the Court House. About the beginning of the past century, 1800, my Grandfather Cotten, with his wife, her brother Abner Johnson, and their relatives, Gideon and William Pillow, and their sister, Mrs. Dew, moved out from North Carolina into Tennessee, stopping in Davidson County, near Nashville. Later Abner Johnson and the Pillows settled in Maury County, near Columbia, and about the year 1808 my grandfather and his family came on to Madison County, Alabama, and settled at what has always been known as Cave Springs, about fifteen miles east or southeast from Huntsville. In the second war with Great Britain (the War of 1812) my Grandfather Cotten again answered the call to arms, and as a captain he served his country with notable gallantry. It is like an almost forgotten dream, the recollection of my paternal grandmother and my maternal grandfather, for both of them died when I was a small child. My maternal grandmother, however, who lived to the age of eighty-seven years, I remember well. In my earliest recollection my father was a school-teacher, teaching at a village then called ÒThe Section,Ó afterwards ÒLowsville,Ó being now the town of Maysville, twelve miles east of Huntsville. He was well-educated and enjoyed the reputation of being an excellent teacher. He quit teaching, however, and settled on a small farm four miles east of Cave Springs, on what is known as the ÒCove road,Ó running from Huntsville to Bellefonte. Here he died when I was about seven years of age, leaving my mother with five children: John Ashworth, a son by her first husband; my brother, William J. Barron, who now lives in Huntsville, Alabama; two sisters, Tabitha and Nancy Jane; and myself. About nine years later our mother died. In the meantime our half-brother had arrived at manÕs estate and left home. Soon after our motherÕs death we sold the homestead, and each one went his or her way, as it were, the sisters living with our near-by relatives until they married. My brother and myself found employment in Huntsville and lived there. Our older sister and her husband came to Texas in about the year 1857, and settled first in Nacogdoches County. In the fall of 1859 I came to Texas, to bring my then widowed sister and her child to my sister already here. And so, as the old song went, ÒI am away here in Texas.Ó

Rampage Nation Book Review:

In the past decade, no individual act of violence has killed more people in the United States than the mass shooting. This well-researched, forcefully argued book answers some of the most pressing questions facing our society: Why do people go on killing sprees? Are gun-free zones magnets for deadly rampages? What can we do to curb the carnage of this disturbing form of firearm violence? Contrary to conventional wisdom, the author shows that gun possession often prods aggrieved, mentally unstable individuals to go on shooting sprees; these attacks largely occur in places where guns are not prohibited by law; and sensible gun-control measures like the federal Assault Weapons Ban—which helped drastically reduce rampage violence when it was in effect—are instrumental to keeping Americans safe from mass shootings in the future. To stem gun massacres, the author proposes several original policy prescriptions, ranging from the enactment of sensible firearm safety reforms to an overhaul of how the justice system investigates potential active-shooter threats and prosecutes violent crimes. Calling attention to the growing problem of mass shootings, Rampage Nation demonstrates that this unique form of gun violence is more than just a criminal justice offense or public health scourge. It is a threat to American security.
