Be careful what you wish for.
After moving from Vancouver to isolated Hazelton,
BC, high school senior Rachel Barnes hopes she’ll finally find

apart. When she and her friends discover the old spirit box her
grandmother gave her, they see it as a chance to wish their troubles

wendigo—give away nothing for free.
So instead of worrying about fitting in and finding a boyfriend, Rachel
finds herself in a race to control the malevolent spirit who’s
taken up residence in Mason Allen, who she fears and
craves in
equal measure. What began as a harmless game forces Rachel to
confront her past—and offers her a future she never imagined.
Step into a reality that is not as it seems in Book 1 of the Harmless series.

Excerpt:

 
Lexie awoke with a start from a
sound sleep. Gaping into the blackness of the strange bedroom, she discovered the
storm had abated and she detected the creaks and groans of the old house. Then
a crack from the floorboards made her flinch.
It came from Will’s
side of the bed. She reached out to shake him, but he didn’t move.
“Will?”
She received a
muffled grunt.
Another crack in
the floor, but this time it happened right next to her side of the bed. An odor
lingered in the air.
Is
that coffee?

A column of
light glittering to her left made Lexie’s mouth go dry. The oddity soon took on
the shape of a man.
His strong
frame, long arms, and tapered hands came into view. Good-looking, despite the
cruel curl of his lips, his chiseled features, and engaging eyes, made her
insides tingle. But when the cut of his old-fashioned red vest, long black
coat, and white ascot tie took shape, Lexie understood this wasn’t some hazy
fantasy. She didn’t fantasize about men from another century.
Lexie clutched
her bedsheet as a fearful scream rose in her throat.
“Please, my
dear, don’t bore me with your petty shrieks,” the figure said, his tone
condescending.
Like a lightbulb
getting enough electricity to reach its wattage, his image brightened, bringing
out his details. Lexie scrutinized the buttons on his coat, the fine craftsmanship
of his high black boots, and grasped the identity of her visitor.
Then a loud pop rang out, and he was gone. It
happened so fast, Lexie questioned if it had happened at all.
“Welcome to Altmover Manor, Ms.
Arden.” She recognized the voice of the apparition. “I hope you enjoy your stay.”

 

This time, Lexie did not hold back her scream, and as she opened her
mouth …

With Publishers Weekly heralding
the first book in his
Brainrush thriller
series as “terrifically entertaining” and “inventive
and compelling,” and Book-2 holding a death grip on the #1 or #2
slots of the Amazon Top-Rated (best reviewed)
Mystery/Thriller
and Action/Adventure
lists for 10 straight months,
Beyond Judgment,
the third in the series, sees hero Jake Bronson at the mercy of his
hidden past.
After waking up with amnesia from a six-year coma, Jake Bronson’s past is
lost to him. But that doesn’t mean the past hasn’t been looking for
him–or that it will let him live when it finally catches up.
Jake’s placid, anonymous life in Italy is shattered by the arrival of an
assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him–and he has no idea
why he’s in their crosshairs. He’s saved only when an American
scientist intervenes, wielding strange technology that briefly
reactivates Jake’s dormant memories and deadly skills. As unknown
enemies continue to hound Jake’s every step, the scientist helps him
reconnect with lost friends and loved ones who believed him long
dead.

Any happy reunion is forfeit, though, as Jake’s murky history and
mysterious talents conceal a terrible secret that–should it fall
into the wrong hands–could trigger the extinction of the human race.
Averting this apocalypse means Jake must risk everything to reawaken
his true self and stop an ancient order from unleashing humanity’s
ultimate judgment.

The first three books in #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling
author Richard Bard’s
Brainrush series
garnered over 2,000 Amazon 5-Star reviews, setting the stage for the
continuing story spanning three continents and two more books.
With
Brainchild (Brainrush 4) called “a high-speed thriller that ignites pages
with scenes of action and suspense” by Kirkus Reviews,
and
Smoke & Mirrors (Brainrush 5) named “best
book of the year”
by IndieReader.com, this
mind-gripping adventure is sure to capture the imagination long after
the final heart-stopping chapter.

A gifted boy forced to grow up too fast… A father who will do anything to protect him… A madman bent on destroying them both.

In Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a
cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual
consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his
brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to
infiltrate the world’s most secure networks. But the scientific
advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are
slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast
foundation–who may die before realizing his dream of
immortality–and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at
nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.

Caught in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex,
whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the
impasse.

When Jake’s family and closest friends are simultaneously abducted in a
globally coordinated kidnapping scheme, he races across two
continents before uncovering the first clue to their whereabouts,
unaware that his hostage son and teenage siblings crash-landed in the
jungles of South China, where they must find every ounce of their
courage and wits to survive the wilds and escape the ruthless drug
lord who is hot on their heels. Can a seven-year-old boy learn to
kill to save his family?

#1 Wall Street Journal bestselling
author Richard Bard, who entertained fans with his wildly
successful
Brainrush thriller
series, now unleashes the heart-pounding series finale in a two-book
ride that will take your breath away.
Jake Bronson’s family and friends are mourning him. They’d watched as he
sacrificed himself so their lives could return to normal. But normal
wasn’t to be. The megalomaniac whom Jake had killed during his
suicide assault left a legacy of videos that damn Jake and everyone
associated with him, leading to a price being put on their heads,
dead or alive. They go to ground, unaware their every move is being
tracked by a new breed of young, tech-savvy jihadists about to
unleash vengeance on America’s homeland–with Jake’s family and the
unsuspecting citizens of Los Angeles in their crosshairs.
As the jaws of the terrorist trap begin to close, Jake’s eight-year-old
son, Alex, faces a threat of his own. He carries a deadly secret that
endangers the world, and now that his father is dead, Alex is the
only one who can deal with it. He slips away to heed the call of
unearthly visions that demand his presence, and his journey draws him
to the back alleys of Bogota, Columbia, where he encounters a group
of terminally ill orphans. One of their siblings has been abducted by
child traffickers. Alex can’t ignore their cry for help, and the
unlikely alliance plans a nothing-to-lose rescue mission that has
little chance of success.

But the bloodthirsty outcry against Alex’s family and friends reaches
beyond those who wish them harm, as do the visions that reveal their
dark secrets to Alex. Help is on the way…
