Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop (Mar 20 - 25)

Seeing as it is the first day of Spring - it is time to clean off some shelves!  I have three books to giveaway to three different winners!  They are Dancing on Broken Glass by Ka Hancock, Redeemer by Jeffery S. Williams and Adam by Brian H. Winchester.

Dancing on Broken Glass
by Ka Hancock

Lucy Houston and Mickey Chandler probably shouldn't have fallen in love, let alone gotten married.  They're both plagued with faulty genes -- he has bipolar disorder; she, a ravaging family history of breast cancer.  But when their paths cross on the night of Lucy's twenty-first birthday, sparks fly, and there's no denying their chemistry.

Cautious every step of the way, they are determined to make their relationship work -- and they put their commitment in writing.  Mickey will take his medication.  Lucy won't blame him for what is beyond his control.  He promises honesty.  She promises patience.  Like any marriage, there are good days and bad days -- and some very bad days.  In dealing with their unique challenges, they make the heartbreaking decision not to have children.  But when Lucy shows up for a routine physical just shy of their eleventh anniversary, she gets an impossible surprise that changes everything.  Everything.  Suddenly, all their rules are thrown out the window, and the two of them must redefine what love really is.

by Jeffery S. Williams

For the past year, Detective Kristen Cauldron has been grappling with the disappearance of her 8-year-old daughter -- and the case has grown cold.  Returning to work on the force after a year off, Cauldron finds herself working with a new partner and on a new case to catch a serial killer -- an experience that will push her to the edge of sanity.

He calls himself "Redeemer."  His religious delusions justify his elaborate murders.  Using medieval practices, he takes the "lost causes" of the world and "redeems" them -- making their souls ready to stand before God.  His motivation?  Not vigilante justice or righteous judgment, but deliverance -- saving unknown future victims from cruelty, as well as redeeming the criminals from eternal damnation.

Redeemer selects Cauldron, based on her previous background, to be his vessel for revealing the scheme behind his "ministry."  When Redeemer discovers Cauldron's history, he boldly pledges to her that he can find out what happened to her daughter.  Cauldron is secretly caught between duty and hope, concealing it even from Hawkins, her partner who she has come to trust.

Redeemer is a vivid examination of a man's toxic faith and hyper-religiosity, a mother's heart-wrenching loss and compulsion to discover her daughter's fate, a healing and often humorous bond between partners, and a riveting police investigation into this serial killer's psyche and symbolic crimes.  When Redeemer and Kristen finally come face to face, the obsession to know the truth about her daughter threatens to destroy everything she holds close to her heart. 

by Brian H. Winchester

He was named after the moist red earth from which he was formed.  His muscular body was just past the threshold of full manhood.  By current earthly standards he would have looked to be in his late teens.  His intellect was agile, sharp, and endowed with a deep understanding of the world he had just entered -- the kind of understanding that today would take a lifetime to develop.  What he couldn't learn by logical analysis he quickly grasped through a keen intuition that was emotional and spiritual at the same time.

Adam would need all these capabilities to fulfill the charge God had given him -- to cultivate the rich land of Eden in which he had been placed, and to protect and guard it.

But guard it from what?

Adam was about to find out.  Everything about life as he knew it hung in the balance of how well he accomplished that charge. If he did well, he would protect not only his own life, but preserve the soul of every man and woman to follow.  If he failed, the consequences would be beyond even his ability to understand.

The war in Heaven was over.  The battle for Earth was about to begin.
