The war with the Alliance rages on, and Cinnabar’s newest Commander, Daniel Leary, has a mission. The remote Dunbar’s World is facing the threat of invasion from the planet Pellegrino. The invaders have landed with a massive army, plasma cannons and a heavily armed warship in tow – and all Leary has to work with is the local police force. With enemies on all sides, Leary faces a seemingly impossible task. But Leary commands the Princess Cecile, his faithful crew are behind him, and brilliant cyber-spy Adele Mundy is ready for action. They are no strangers to the impossible...

ENTRY #2 IN CITIZEN SERIES, SEQUEL TO INTO THE HINTERLANDS. Science fiction adventure on the frontier realms of empire written by biological scientist Dr. John Lambshead and nationally best-selling David Drake. THE RIGHT MAN FOR A VERY BAD JOB The Cutter Stream colonies were at peace. If everybody behaved reasonably, that peace could last a thousand years. Allen Allenson had known war; it had made him peaceful and reasonable. He was far too experienced to believe the same was true of all his fellow colonists, however, let alone the government of the distant homeworld across the Bight. War was coming, a war that the colonies had to win if they were ever to be more than prison camps and a dumping ground for incompetent noblemen. The experience that had caused Allenson to hate war made him the only man who could lead the colonial army. Allenson knew that he wasn't really a general, but he understood his fellow colonists better than any homeworld general could. He would free the Cutter Stream, or he would die trying. What Allen Allenson would not do, what he would never do, was quit. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Managment).

There is a fishing village on the coast of Maine steeped in the traditions of home and family. Yet Misty Harbor is always willing to give anyone with an open heart a second chance. . . Twenty-four year old Norah Stevens is looking to start over after a frightening experience calls into question the faith she once had in the power of love. Landing her own column in the local paper, Norah dives right into the rhythms of life in Misty Harbor, though her first encounter with log home builder Ned Porter leaves her a bit shaken. A giant of a man, Ned usually feels awkward around petite women--and five-feet-nothing Norah, whom he discovers snooping around his yard in search of her mom's dog--is no exception. Norah's obvious fear of him is disconcerting at first, but Ned soon discovers that while Norah may be tiny, she has vast reserves of determination. And Norah realizes that Ned, who is as gentle in nature as he is large in stature, might just be the perfect man to help her rebuild her life--if she can let him into her heart. . . "Marcia Evanick's charming and warmhearted novels will brighten even the most depressing day."--Romantic Times "Marcia Evanick's stories are charming and fun."--Rendezvous

From a master chronicler of Spanish history comes a magnificent work about the pivotal years from 1522 to 1566, when Spain was the greatest European power. Hugh Thomas has written a rich and riveting narrative of exploration, progress, and plunder. At its center is the unforgettable ruler who fought the French and expanded the Spanish empire, and the bold conquistadors who were his agents. Thomas brings to life King Charles V—first as a gangly and easygoing youth, then as a liberal statesman who exceeded all his predecessors in his ambitions for conquest (while making sure to maintain the humanity of his new subjects in the Americas), and finally as a besieged Catholic leader obsessed with Protestant heresy and interested only in profiting from those he presided over. The Golden Empire also presents the legendary men whom King Charles V sent on perilous and unprecedented expeditions: Hernán Cortés, who ruled the “New Spain” of Mexico as an absolute monarch—and whose rebuilding of its capital, Tenochtitlan, was Spain’s greatest achievement in the sixteenth century; Francisco Pizarro, who set out with fewer than two hundred men for Peru, infamously executed the last independent Inca ruler, Atahualpa, and was finally murdered amid intrigue; and Hernando de Soto, whose glittering journey to settle land between Rio de la Palmas in Mexico and the southernmost keys of Florida ended in disappointment and death. Hugh Thomas reveals as never before their torturous journeys through jungles, their brutal sea voyages amid appalling storms and pirate attacks, and how a cash-hungry Charles backed them with loans—and bribes—obtained from his German banking friends. A sweeping, compulsively readable saga of kings and conquests, armies and armadas, dominance and power, The Golden Empire is a crowning achievement of the Spanish world’s foremost historian.
