The Hedgewitch Queen Lilith Saintcrow Genre: Epic Price: $2.99 Publish Date: December 01, 2011 Publisher: Orbit Seller: Hachette Book Group Vianne di Rocancheil has been largely content to play the gawky provincial. As lady in waiting at the Court of Arquitaine, she studies her books, watches for intrigue, and shepherds her foolhardy Princesse safely through the glittering whirl. Court is a sometimes-unpleasant waltz, especially for the unwary, but Vianne treads its measured steps well. Unfortunately, the dance has changed. Treachery is afoot in gilded and velvet halls. A sorcerous conspiracy is unleashed, with blood, death, and warfare close behind. Her Princesse murdered and her own life in jeopardy, Vianne must flee, carrying the fate of her land with her–the Great Seal of Arquitaine, awake after its long sleep. Invasion threatens, civil war looms, and the conspiracy hunts for Vianne di Rocancheil, to kill or to use her against all she holds dear. A life of dances, intrigues, and fashion has not prepared her for this. Nor has it prepared her for Tristan d'Arcenne, Captain of the King's Guard and player in the most dangerous games conspiracy can devise. Yet to save her country and avenge her Princesse, Vianne will become what she must, say what she should, and do whatever is required. A Queen can do no less.
Darkfever The Fever Series Karen Marie Moning Genre: Fantasy, Futuristic & Ghost Price: $1.99 Publish Date: October 31, 2006 Publisher: Random House Publishing Group Seller: Random House Digital, Inc. (Books) BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Karen Marie Moning's Bloodfever. MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens. When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death–a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone–Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed–a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae…. As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane–an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women–closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book–because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands….

Time to Get Tough Making America #1 Again Donald J. Trump Genre: Politics & Current Events Price: $14.99 Publish Date: December 06, 2011 Publisher: Regnery Publishing Seller: The Perseus Books Group, LLC Donald J. Trump has just five words for the politicians and so-called leaders in Washington, DC: It's Time to Get Tough President Obama has been a disaster for America. In four short years, he's wrecked our economy, saddled our children with more debt than America managed to rack up in 225 years, and gone around the world apologizing for our country—as if the greatest nation in the world needs to apologize for being a land of opportunity and freedom, which we were before Obama became president. Now, America looks like a broken country—stripped of jobs, stripped of wealth, stripped of respect. And what does President Obama do about it? He plays nice with a China that is doing everything it can to destroy our economy, while refusing to stand up for America with Middle Eastern oil mobsters who think they can hold us hostage through higher prices at the pump, and chucking billions in “stimulus” money to his friends and supporters while letting the rest of us foot the bill. This can't go on. And if Donald J. Trump has anything to say about it, it won't. In his new blockbuster book, Time to Get Tough , Trump has the answers America has been looking for, an agenda for making America number one again, including: How to put OPEC out of business How to create American jobs by forcing Communist China into truly fair trade How to retire our debt without endangering long-established programs—like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—that millions of Americans depend on How to undo the fraud of Obamanomics and the disaster of Obamacare Blunt, straightforward, and honest, it's all trademark Trump, setting out a common sense agenda to restore American prosperity and make our nation respected once again.
December 1941 31 Days that Changed America and Saved the World Craig Shirley Genre: United States Price: $9.99 Publish Date: December 06, 2011 Publisher: Thomas Nelson Seller: Thomas Nelson December 1941 traces, day-by-day, the most important 31 days in the history of America's participation in WWII, which snuffed out the lives of millions and changed history forever. From December 1, 1941, until the morning of December 7, 1941, America was at peace and-with the exception of the stubborn and persistent high unemployment of the Great Depression-was a relatively happy country. By the afternoon of the December 7 attack on Pearl Harbor, America was a radically changed country, forever. Its isolationist impulses evaporated, and both major political parties became more or less internationalist. The month also introduced food and gas rationing, Victory Gardens, scrap drives, a military draft, and the conversion of Detroit into an “arsenal of democracy.” From the moment of America's entry into World War II, people of all kinds, but mostly women looking for work, flooded into the city. Instant apartment buildings sprang up, as did eating and drinking salons, all to the advantage of the massive increase in spending generated by the federal government. December 1941 is a fascinating and meticulously researched look at the American home front-her people, faith, economy, government, and culture. “Craig Shirley's December 1941 is a riveting narrative history of America in the crucible of the Second World War. A real page turner. Highly recommended.” Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University and New York Times bestseller of The Wilderness Warrior
