Father, Husband, Shadow Warrior. Target. Sean Havens served the government black ops underworld for over 20 years. He lived and operated through corporate cut-outs and within the dark recesses of humanity to protect the country he loved. But when the family he loved was unprotected by his country, Havens´s clandestine double life follows him home colliding two very separate worlds. Shock awaits as he learns who is friend or foe in the obscure domestic battlefield. To find sanctuary, he must navigate the intertwined shadows of underhanded proxy surrogate schemes, staged terrorism, and a long thought to be disbanded CIA rival - The Pond. If Havens survives as both protector and punisher, will his soul be among the body count? Few will find safe haven amidst those seeking revenge and refuge within the twisted wreckage of covert eliminations and set-ups. Enthusiasts of military thrillers and espionage conspiracies from the likes of Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, and Lee Child will enjoy this authentic dark ride, lauded by best-selling authors Dalton Fury, Mark Greaney, and Kevin Maurer. The novel was written by former discrete operations intelligence adviser, ´´J.T. Patten´´ who brings an insider´s view and voice that those in the know will recognize, and outsiders will appreciate a rare glimpse to a world that few know exists. 1. Language: English.

In the 10th year of the Change, the survivors in western Oregon have learned how to live in a world without technology. The city-state of Corvallis has preserved its university, and trade flourishes via riverboats and horse-drawn railways. Under the strong hand of Michael Havel, the Bearkillers hold the lands west of Salem in peace and order. And in the eastern half of the Willamette Valley, the Clan Mackenzie flourishes under the charismatic leadership of Juniper Mackenzie, bard and High Priestess. Together, they have held the Lord Protector, Norman Arminger - the warlord of Portland - at bay. With his dark fantasies of a neofeudal empire, Arminger has extended his power over much of the Pacific Northwest, spreading fear with his knights, castles, and holy inquisition. Even more dangerous, and perhaps Arminger´s most powerful weapon of all, is the ruthlessly cunning mind of his consort, Lady Sandra. The tensions between these factions have been building for some time, and the only reason they haven´t confronted one another on the battlefield is because Arminger´s daughter has fallen into Clan Mackenzie´s hands. But Lady Sandra has a plan to retrieve her - a plan that threatens to plunge the entire region into open warfare. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Todd McLaren.

´´Sometimes the most stubborn practitioners of grace are those called to proclaim it.´´ A missionary enjoying the economic prosperity of his homeland... A call from God to evangelize an ungodly nation in the Middle East... An inner struggle over whether terrorists deserve grace and at what cost... A daunting journey to the other side of the world... And a whale. The story of Jonah has been hijacked by a certain large fish that may or may not have been real. But what if Jonah has more to do with grace and the Gospel than with a whale? What if we have been too hard on Jonah? If God asked me to evangelize ISIS, I´d want to go to the other side of the world too. Jonah´s story - arguably the most well-known of the minor prophets but also little understood - reminds us that God loves everyone crafted in his image, even terrorists and ancient empires guilty of war crimes and battlefield atrocities. Maybe the greatest miracle of Jonah isn´t the large fish but the fact that wicked and mighty Nineveh threw herself at God´s mercy, and the Lord forgave her. Maybe we respond to evil with anger and bitterness and hate because we haven´t seen the power of grace in our own lives. Sometimes the most stubborn practitioners of grace are those called to proclaim it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grant Bolton.

Dear Reader, Almost Innocent is a romance that is particularly dear to me, with a heroine who surprised me with her strength and resourcefulness, and a hero who will always be one of my favorites. Growing up behind the impenetrable walls of an English fortress, young Magdalen does not know that she is the illegitimate daughter of a powerful English prince and his murdered French mistress - or that she has been a pawn in the struggle between England and France ever since she slipped from her dying mother´s womb. All she knows is that she longs for excitement. And then one day, as if in answer to her prayers, the splendid figure of Guy de Gervais, a true knight in shining armor, rides into her cloistered world and spirits her away. For Magdalen it is love at first sight. The one and only love of her life. Yet Guy sees only his responsibility to keep Magdalen safe until she can be wed to his nephew and thus fulfill her political destiny. Then duty calls Guy to the bloody battlefields of France, and when he returns, time has transformed Magdalen into a stunningly sensual beauty. Suddenly the noble knight is fighting the fiercest battle of his life: against a searing desire for a woman he cannot have. I hope that you will be thrilled by Magdalen and Guy´s passionate love story, and that you will have as much pleasure reading it as I had writing it. Warmest wishes, Jane Feather P.S. Don´t miss my latest novel, The Widow´s Kiss, featuring an enchantress who has been widowed no less than four times ...and the formidable hero who finds himself reluctantly falling under her spell. 1.
