What if Little Red Riding Hood was real?

Ninety years before the Brothers Grimm penned their version of Little Red Riding Hood, a historic, gruesome series of events would shock all of Europe. In 1765, an unidentified wolf-like animal ferociously mauled dozens of peasants in the Gévaudan region of France…

Based on both the traditional Grimm and Charles Perrault versions of Little Red Riding Hood, this dark fantasy is set against the Beast of Gévaudan attacks, blending history with fairy tale and gothic romance. Unique to the genre, the novel revives the French fable of the girl-in-the-red-cloak with a new, shockingly real existence that blurs the line between folklore and reality.

The Geronimo Breach is a breakneck-paced thrill ride that pits the world’s most unlikely protagonist against the deadliest adversaries on the planet. From the corridors of Langley to the sweltering jungles of Panama, from the hills of Pakistan to the cocaine trails of Colombia, a clandestine scheme to preserve a terrible secret goes horribly awry, plunging a reluctant hero down a deadly rabbit hole of deceit and betrayal, while raising disturbing questions about the media, the war on terror & its linkage with the war on drugs, & the nature of reality in an age of sound-bites and photo ops.

The unexpectedly shattering conclusion of this richly drawn thriller is both topical & chillingly plausible, making for a roller-coaster action/adventure without parallel.

[Hot Deal] The Runaway Pastor’s Wife – Save 93%

The Runaway Pastor's WifeThe Runaway Pastor’s Wife
by Diane Moody

What could possibly drive a pastor’s wife to run away from home?

After years of frustration from life in a church fishbowl, Annie McGregor walks away from it all and boards a plane for Colorado. She has no way of knowing her college sweetheart is headed to the same cabin in the Rockies, terrified and gravely wounded. Their unexpected reunion couldn’t have come at a worse time. Or could it? Bewildered that God would allow Michael Dean to walk back into her life, Annie pleads with Him to keep her heart true to her husband and her family. God answers her prayer, but in a way she would never expect.

Written by a former pastor’s wife, Annie’s story provides a rare look inside the family life of those in the ministry, particularly the unique pressures on those who marry men of God.

But a getaway to a ski resort goes tragically wrong and he is killed in an avalanche. That should be the end of his story, but for Matt, it’s only the beginning.

I am no longer able to download books from this site – WHY! I keep getting this error message – " We're sorry. An error occurred when we tried to process your request. Rest assured, we're already working on the problem and expect to resolve it shortly". Well, this has been going on for a couple of weeks now :(

Maybe you can copy/paste the name into amazon's kindle page……

Kerri Kerney January 27, 2013 at 6:42 pm

I get this error, but only in the mobile amazon site. Click on the name of the book on the mobile site and it will bring you to the standard page and then you shouldn't receive the error.

Thank you!

Scarlet is pretty good. I had downloaded it the last time it was offered and it's got a spot on my Kindle. I also recommend Horns by Joe Hill. He's a great horror author (much like his father) and very talented.

Davonna Juroe January 27, 2013 at 6:40 pm
