Drew Hayes - 2016
After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure. With no other options, Owen is forced to take a job overseeing a group of corpies, corporate-sponsored Supers who do rescue work… as long as there are cameras around. Between a team that doesn’t want him, fellow Heroes who don’t trust him, and a nation that might not be ready to forgive the sins of the past, the return of Titan could prove even harder than the scandal that drove him away. But Owen will have to push on, because his new city is far from a peaceful one. A mysterious enemy is attacking Heroes and growing steadily stronger. An enemy that only the once-legendary Titan might be able to stop. If he can manage to stick around this time.

Dragon Security: Boxed Set
Glenna Sinclair - 2016
No cliffhangers. BOOK 1 I went to his sister because that’s what he told me to do. But when his brother, Cole, accused me of being a gold digger, I knew I couldn’t trust them. I didn’t realize she would send Cole to watch over me. Or that he would carry me out of my trailer when he saw how bad it really was. Who was he to tell me where I could live or how I managed my own business? I mean, he might be my kid’s uncle, but I’d been on my own for a long time. I didn’t need his help. And I really didn’t need the confusion that rushed through me whenever he stood too close. BOOK 2 I do the best I can. I have to make a living, right? And this industry…it pays very well. And when you’re on the streets with a kid to take care of, you do what you have to do. But I took pains to hide my face in the movies I acted in. For seven years, I’d kept my identity anonymous. But someone figured it out and now I have this big, silent man following me around, demanding I do everything he says. BOOK 3 I didn’t want him in my life, didn’t want him anywhere near me, but on the worst day of my life he comes walking down the street, a gun in his hand, and throws me over his shoulder like some sort of Neanderthal taking possession of what was his. But I wasn’t his anymore. That ended when I caught him kissing my sister in one of the most romantic cities in the world. My sister, who’d just been killed saying his name. How did I know he didn’t kill her? How did I know that he didn’t intend to kill me? BOOK 4 I’m a nurse. I help people. I’ve done it all my life, even before I embraced my profession. So when I heard Blake Zimmerman explaining how he and his wife were desperate to have a baby, I couldn’t help but offer myself. I’d never thought about being a surrogate before, but I wanted to help and it wasn’t like I had any romantic prospects at that moment. Hell, I hadn’t had romantic prospects in a long time. And Blake…he was over the moon at the suggestion. So was his wife, Annie. But then, almost the moment we signed the contract, someone tried to run me down. BOOK 5 We fought like cats and dogs. He made fun of my mode of dress and I…well, I usually just blushed and hit his arm, telling him to shut up. But I hated it, hated feeling like I was in high school again. So when Megan, my best friend and my boss, told me that we were to go on an undercover operation together, pretend to be a young, married couple, I thought she was insane. Or trying to play match maker. BOOK 6 Megan's story. That's all I'm saying ;)

But that summer takes an unexpected turn when the king sends her into the Ice Blades to a secret mine where ancient dragon bones have been discovered. Rumor has it that they’re cursed and dangerous, but Lilah is more concerned about dealing with the outpost commander, a fierce officer with the temperament of a crabby badger. As punishment for irking the king, Colonel Vann Therrik is overseeing the hardened criminals working in the remote Magroth Crystal Mines. He would like a chance to redeem himself—and escape the loathsome duty station—but nothing is going his way. Cursed fossils have delayed production, miners are trying to escape, and now a scientist has shown up, making demands on his time. Worse, she’s the cousin of his nemesis General Zirkander.

Seal Investigations Series
Lola Silverman - 2016
5 books and NO cliffies! Book 1: JASE I did not work my ass off to become a Navy SEAL because I had a desire to add the title of “nursemaid” to my resume. So when my commanding officer requested that I go check up on his baby sister, I was understandably less than thrilled. Just because Rachel’s roommate thinks that Rachel got herself kidnapped doesn’t make it true. Rachel is notorious for her bad decisions and I have no doubt that Rachel’s equally silly roommate has likely blown things way out of proportion. Book 2: BRECKIN Tasha Campbell is bar none the most fascinating female I’ve ever met. The woman could eat metal and spit nails. She’s smart, tough, and determined in a way that I haven’t seen in anyone but my SEAL brothers. I never intended to let her get embroiled in my investigation, but she sort of weaseled her way in and then managed to prove to me that we need her. Book 3: MARLON I’ve never been the type of guy to shack up with a woman for a long term relationship. I never saw myself as a marriage and family type of man. But the second Marina Reyes showed up right smack in the middle of my recon at Baltimore Harbor, she got under my skin in a way that won’t quit. I knew Yates was sending me someone with inside information. I had no clue that Marina’s information came from so far inside. When I think of what they did to her while they held her I want to tear them apart with my bare hands. Book 4: DESMOND Every SEAL team member has their own special brand of bad ass. Mine is all about jumping in before I look. I’m the guy that’s always up for anything. Life is no good unless you’re living large and taking risks. That’s probably why I didn’t flinch when the others suggested I break into a dirty accountant’s home in the middle of a party. Who doesn’t love a good party crash? Book 5: ALEXANDER When I first decided to squeeze information from Agent Isabella Rockwood, I had forgotten what a kick she is to my libido. The woman practically sweats my personal brand of pheromone. She’s smart. She’s sexy. And she won’t tell me a damn thing I need to know! It drives me insane, but I can’t really blame her. My team and I aren’t exactly the most popular people in town right now. But when someone starts trying to kill us, Isabella and I will have to work together to avoid getting caught in the crossfire. WARNING: Steamy read! For mature readers only...
The Faraway Paladin: Volume 1: The Boy in the City of the Dead
Kanata Yanagino - 2016
His name is Will, and he's being raised by three undead: the hearty skeletal warrior, Blood; the graceful mummified priestess, Mary; and the crotchety spectral sorcerer, Gus. The three pour love into the boy, and teach him all they know. But one day, Will starts to wonder: "Who am I?" Will must unravel the mysteries of this faraway dead man's land, and unearth the secret pasts of the undead. He must learn the love and mercy of the good gods, and the bigotry and madness of the bad. And when he knows it all, the boy will take his first step on the path to becoming a Paladin. "I promised you. It's gonna take a while, but I'll tell you everything. This is the story of the deaths of many heroes. It's the story of how we died, and it's the reason you grew up here." Review from Animenewsnetwork: "Fans of fantasy by not necessarily light novels should give this a chance, as it is good simply as a fantasy book and has the most potential to reach beyond the otaku niche of any LN thus far published in English. By turns exciting, heartwarming, and heartbreaking, The Faraway Paladin is a book that is worth your time."
Casey Kelleher - 2016

Dirk Patton - 2016
A top-secret government project makes him an offer he can't refuse: work for us or disappear permanently. With no choice, he embarks on a mission to undo a terrorist attack that has already occurred, by being sent back in time 36 hours. But all is not as it seems. Soon, a conspiracy at the highest level of government to seize total power over the country threatens the second chance at life he has been given. Not knowing whom he can trust, he must fight to save himself, as well as a woman in the past who was drawn into the battle for the very survival of the country. Spanning both time, and the width of America, 36 is a unique thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. 36 is the new, action adventure thriller from Dirk Patton, the best selling author of the V Plague series. Readers and critics are blown away: "I was hooked from the very beginning. It's rare to get so involved in a book that you are rooting for certain characters, and praying that others get the bullet they deserve." "As someone who reads roughly 16 books a month, I feel I am a pretty good judge of writing both classics and new authors....Mr. Patton is one of the best I have seen in many years.....don't miss this one and be ready for the next one in his other series." "A real page turner that has some great twists. Dirk Patton has shown he can write a Stephen King sized novel with great detail, yet still keep it fast paced and engaging. There are real layers to this story. It is not just how the main character changes the past but how much he, and his situation, evolve in the same timeframe." "36 has the most interesting and complex angle to time travel ever. Saved from his own execution, given a new identity, trained, and sent back in time 36 hours to thwart terrorist attacks, all is going well until he is sent on his latest mission. Forced to question the motives of the people who send him, he has to quickly separate the good guys from those who are trying to destabilize the country. A well written book, as are all of Dirk Patton's VPLAGUE series books." "36 is just as spellbinding as the Plague series - time travel, government conspiracy intrigue, beautiful girls, guns - what's not to like ! Loved the characters and the multiple story lines." "I didn't think Mr. Patton could give me a character I love nearly as much as John Chase, but he did!! I was hooked on '36' from page one. Robert Tracy is a relatable guy and you really feel for the situations he's thrust into throughout the book. I love the sci-fi part of it as well (being a self proclaimed nerd and proud of it!) and though there were hints at some pretty complex physics principals it was easy to understand (and even, believe..?) and engaging."

Although Izzy prefers assignments out in the “real world,” he’s glad to be an instructor for the current BUD/S class, because it allows him to spend time at home with his wife, Eden, and her lively and lovable extended family. Eden’s sixteen-year-old brother, Ben, is dealing with a new crush and a homophobic bully in his high school, but it soon appears that things are not as they seem. Meanwhile, Eden’s other brother (and Izzy’s SEAL teammate and former frenemy) Danny Gillman and his wife Jenn have just had a baby who has colic and cries constantly. As Ben deals with the type of too-serious high school drama that could involve a body count, and Danny and Jenn juggle a new baby, lack of sleep, and postpartum blues, Izzy is intrigued by “Boat Squad John,” a misfit team of young SEAL candidates all named John, including the intriguing young Seagull, his swim buddy Timebomb, and Seagull’s nemesis Hans. Does Seagull have what it takes keep Boat Squad John still standing when the dust of BUD/S Hell Week settles or will they ring out? Set in Coronado during BUD/S training Hell Week, in Ready to Roll Brockmann introduces the SEAL officer and instructor nicknamed Grunge—Lt. Peter Greene—as she delivers what she does best: a story celebrating the U.S. Navy SEALs—and the women (and sometimes men) who wholeheartedly love and support them.
