L-Book ePublisher New Book Release

Second Nature
by Jae. Shape-Shifter Romance.
http://L-Book.com Author of Backwards to Oregon.
All formats: eBooks, Paperback, Audio eBook and Micro/SD Memory Card.
Commuter Novel: 604 pages, 185,000 words. Audio is mp3 format, 20 hours listening time, 834 MB, 108 Tracks, eBooks are included.

Novelist Jorie Price doesn't believe in the existence of shape-shifting creatures or true love. She leads a solitary life, and the paranormal romances she writes are pure fiction for her. Griffin Westmore knows better — at least about one of these two things. She doesn't believe in love either, but she's one of the not-so-fictional shape-shifters. She's also a Saru — an elite soldier, investigator, and if need be an assassin with the mission to protect the shape-shifters' secret existence at any cost. When Jorie gets too close to the truth in her latest shape-shifter romance, Griffin is sent to investigate — and if necessary to destroy the manuscript before it's published and to kill the writer.

Note: As per L-Book new release tradition, we are giving away Free jigsaw puzzle of the book cover. Receive the free gift with purchase of Second Nature any format. All puzzles are 300 pieces and sizeable to best match different size screens. Free Gift Jigsaw Puzzles by Galore Puzzles. Thank You for supporting eBooks, L-Books (Audio) and our authors. Roxanne

In an unexpected consequence, Faith is given the ultimatum to forsake her relationship with Sarah and move back to the schoolteacher's house provided by the town council or lose her position at the school.

Grasping at Straws by Jae [Original/Alt/Complete] A prequel to "Backwards to Oregon".
To most upright citizens of Independence, Missouri, Tess Swenson is just the madam of a brothel. Few people know that she's also the owner of a livery stable and a number of other successful businesses — and Tess likes it that way. She can check on her employees without having them scramble to put on an act just because the boss is visiting.

On one of her secret inspections, she makes a surprising discovery.

A Rooster's Job by Jae [Original/Alt/Complete] A sequel to "Backwards to Oregon".
In 1851, the Hamiltons traveled two thousand miles over the Oregon Trail, lured by dreams of living in the idyllic Willamette Valley with its lush prairie, trout-filled rivers, and mild winters.

But the winter of 1852 turns out to be the hardest one in many decades. So now the rich grass is buried under inches of snow, the rivers are frozen, and Luke finds that their rooster isn't doing such a great job either.

Announcement from Kim Pritekel
Hey, all. Well, it's been over a week, and I had my second post-op doctor's visit yesterday. I got some... bad is way too strong of a word, but it'll have to do. See, I started to notice that the vision wasn't as clear as it had been before, though it's still good. Just something was... off. So, the doc discovered that the clear membrane capsule that holds my lens is beginning to cloud. Apparently this happens to 1 in 5 cataract surgery patients, and OF COURSE, I would be that 1 in 5. So, that's the bad news. The good news is, it can be remedied with a simple laser procedure, though it's going to cost me another grand or so. So, THANK GOD you all were SO generous!! I have the left over funds from the auction to cover this final piece to make my vision as good - and then better - than it was the day after surgery.

So, again, thank you all. This, unfortunately will considerably cut into what I'd planned to do with the extra - the homeless and Lucy's Starship Foundation, but at least I've got the money to cover it. The doc said this will likely take place within a couple, three weeks. He wants to make sure my eye has totally healed.

But, other than that, things have gone remarkably well: no pain, no serious limitations. This has truly been the most pleasant surgical situation of my life.

For two years, she lived alone downing prescription drugs to relieve pain that was both emotional and physical.

Twice she found a 1999 phone book that seemingly appeared from out of nowhere, opened to a page for spiritual healers. Believing that her lover, Gwen, was sending her a message, she dialed the number of Luminitsa whose ad read let me heal you with the light .

The visit to the spiritualist's home brought Amanda face to face with Luminitsa and her beautiful and mysterious granddaughter, Raphaela. A thread of light beckons her to a new life if only she believes. Will Amanda abandon the comfort and oblivion her pills afford? If she does, will it be the rescue she is looking for or just another nightmare to haunt her dreams.
