Social Science – Taming the Violence of Faith

Taming the Violence of Faith: Win-Win Solutions for Our World in Crisis
Jay Stuart Snelson
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1453717202
Published: July 2012
Pages: 480

Throughout history, human beings have sought dominance over one another according to a win-lose worldview – to win, the other party must lose. According to author Snelson, another form of conflict resolution is not just possible but necessary to avoid ultimate destruction. Based on the understanding that cultural paradigms, not human nature, are responsible for our ongoing faith-based conflicts, Snelson offers an analysis of these paradigms and how to shift them. Not content with abstract theorizing disconnected from evidence, he builds his Science of Social Causation model on scientific epistemology and seeks to present a well-reasoned and practicable method.

Romantic Suspense – Against The Odds

Against the Odds
Author: Kat Martin
Publisher: MIRA Books
ISBN: 978-0778314226
Published: December 2012
Pages: 400

AGAINST THE ODDS is the 7th romantic suspense book in the wildly popular Against Series. The first 6 books all hit the New York Times top 25 bestseller lists. It’s Rina’s and Alex’s very hot story that will likely keep you awake into the wee hours of morning.

This case may prove to be too hot to handle …

There’s silver out there: Sabrina Eckhart is sure of it. And when she finds the hidden mine on that big piece of West Texas desert, all of her financial problems are solved. That is, if she can find it. The man with the skills she needs is private investigator Alex Justice—a former navy fighter pilot and a current pain in the neck.

When mysterious “accidents” start to plague their search, it seems Rina’s multi-acre inheritance might be more of a curse than a blessing. And yet, there’s still something sensual about the heat…his arrogance…her stubbornness…being thrust into each other’s arms by danger…But the vultures are circling, and if they don’t watch their backs, the relentless desert sun could be the last thing they ever see.

Erotic Urban Fantasy – Incubus Moon

Incubus Moon
Author: Andrew Cheney-Feid
Publisher:CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1463674069
Published: December 2011
Pages: 336

What if the darkness could whisper your name? Touch you?

And what if that same darkness…was calling you home?

Austin Iverson experiences this firsthand on the eve of his thirtieth birthday, when a sinister entity manifests to reveal the startling truth of his birth. He is not human. He is Incubus! A species of carnal demon hunted and slaughtered to extinction by the Shadow Walkers over a millennia ago, or so the supernatural community believes. But inheriting incubus power comes at a steep price. His awakening sets in motion a catastrophic chain of events that will not only threaten his own life, but jeopardize the lives of everyone he holds dear, because it unleashes an immortal enemy consumed by an unquenchable thirst for his blood; a creature so merciless it will stop at nothing until it fully possesses Austin–for the ritual sacrifice of an incubus is the key that will grant this ancient evil dominion over Mankind.

INCUBUS MOON is the antidote to the predictable urban fantasy yarn, turning the genre on its ass-kicking head by daring to break the rules and offer readers a new hero to root for; one whose lust for adventure and wry sense of humor is bested only by an uncanny knack for landing at the heart of danger.

Advisory: This novel is highly erotic and targeted at adult audiences uninhibited by hetero- and homoerotic themes.
