She was white gloves and ice cream socials, a nice Midwestern girl who’d come to the Amazon on a mission to save the native Indians. Then Corey McKinney found herself alone in the thick, steamy jungle with a ruggedly handsome bush pilot who dared her to deny what they both knew: she wanted him.
He was rotgut whiskey and barroom brawls, a street-hardened adventure-seeker who had no time for women with lofty intentions. But Asher Adams was instantly captivated by his passenger’s delicate beauty and feisty spirit, and he found himself caring when it was the last thing he wanted to do.
In a jungle teeming with perils, they must band together as they face the most thrilling adventure of their lives–one that will bring a passion that burns hotter than the South American sun, and a love as beautiful as the…Amazon Lily.

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.
Albert Ross is a malingering misanthrope – a boozing, chain smoking philanderer; shifty, lazy, cowardly, going to fat, & more prone to doing the wrong thing than any man alive. His purgatorial existence working for the State Department in Panama gets shattered when a routine errand becomes a race against the clock, battling adversaries for whom no price is too high to protect a secret that could topple the world order. As the body count climbs in a struggle without rules, Al must face his own demons, as well as the myriad very real ones intent upon destroying him. The unexpectedly shattering conclusion of this richly drawn thriller is both topical & chillingly plausible, making for a roller-coaster action/adventure without parallel.

Isabella Reynolds has the perfect life … or does she? Maybe there is a grand illusion to glamour. Fake Perfect Me is a glorious dance that will tickle your senses.
Isabella seems to have it all–the former Southern belle with big dreams is the head of her own skin care company and is the self-proclaimed queen of all things beautiful in New York City. Then her world comes crashing down, and she is stripped of everything she loves–her man, the Italian litigator “Saint” Santo; the loss of her company; and the death of her beloved dog, Potato. With her penchant for bingeing and purging, how can she turn her life around when she still feels the need to maintain her “perfect” façade?
Fake Perfect Me, author Cari Kamm’s heart-warming–and often heart-wrenching–tale of a successful New Yorker and her inner circle, offers an inside look at a world of excess. Isabella Reynolds may seem unlike anyone you’ve ever known, but at her core, she’s instantly recognizable. Her trials and tribulations, her ups and downs, are much the same as anyone’s. Her world may have a high price tag, but its true value comes from its losses and lesson… to love one’s self.

My name is Max Ridgemont. My sister says I’m the Nerd King. I resent that. She says I resemble that. She thinks she’s so smart. Wait til I’m famous from inventing a burping machine.
This is my diary, except it’s not a diary. It’s a journal, or a blog, or a log… just not a diary ’cause diaries are for girls and wimpy kids. There’s also a lot of wicked awesome pictures I drew in here too. Don’t feel bad if you can’t draw as well as I can. Most people can’t.
Oh yeah, my best friend Boogie and I are going to make millions with our new YouTube channel, and our plan is in here too. DON’T try and copy us. You’ll just get upset when you don’t make a million dollars and find out you’re not as awesome as us.
