Summary

The Lethal Stuff of Legends 
For Jessica Tregarth, an unexpected invitation to visit her grandfather in England is a wonderful surprise—an opportunity to open doors to a family past that have always been closed to her. But sinister acts greet her arrival. A stranger tries to steal her luggage and later accosts her in Salisbury Cathedral. Mysterious villains pursue her through Cornwall, their motive and intentions unknown. Jessica's only clue is an antique heirloom she possesses, an ancient ring that bears the Tregarth family crest. And her only ally is handsome gothic novelist David Randall—her self-proclaimed protector—who appears from seemingly out of nowhere to help her in her desperate—attempt to solve a five hundred-year-old, puzzle. For something from out of the cloudy mists of Arthurian lore has come back to plague a frightened American abroad. And a remarkable truth about a fabled king and a medieval treasure could ultimately make Jess Tregarth very rich...or very dead.

    Nebula Award Finalist Simeon Krug is the king of the universe. A self-made man, he is the Bill Gates of the era, having built a megacommercial empire on the backs of his products: androids, genetically engineered human slaves. Having amassed incredible wealth, his next major goal is to communicate with aliens living in an uninhabitable world, sending a mysterious signal. This requires building a mile high tower in the arctic tundra. The androids want civil equality with humans, but are divided on the best means to the goal—political agitation or religious devotion to Krug, their creator. And Krug’s son, Manuel, is reluctant to step into his role as heir to his father’s empire.

    Allison was drop dead beautiful, and she still is. She married her high school sweetheart, the captain of the football team, Lester. They had 3 kids and lived in small town, USA. Lester drank, and beat Allison regularly when he came home from his job, stocking shelves at Walfart. Allison had a dream of working with animals, far away in a game preserve in Kenya. What a silly dream for a small town, USA girl. And then she met Harriet Rothchild. 
    “Olivia! I have read all of your Lesbian Billionaire books and I always wondered about Harriet. You never really came out and told us anything about her. Well this was my big surprise and I thank you very much. This told me a lot about Harriet and the book was excellent. Another excellent read and please excuse me for saying thank you, thank you, thank you too many times.” Ava, Kalamazoo, MI 
    “That Lester. What a jerk. He got just what he deserved and big time. And that Allison. What a charmer. What a wonderful person with such a great heart. And what vision she had. If she is a real person, I wish her and her children the best in whatever that do down the road. Thank you very much Olivia for another great lesbian romance story. Bravo!” Violet, Nashville, TN 
    “Hi Olivia. You just out did yourself with this one. I have been wondering about Harriet through this whole series and I have had so many questions. Harriet is just the best billionaire ever. I don´t know any, but she really seems to be the best that I know of. If I ever get money, I want to be just like her. And Debbie Brown. Ha, Brown, Debbie Brown. She always comes through and she came through really big in this one. I love you Olivia!” Megan, Eau Clare, WI 
    “I thought Allison was down the tubes. I didn´t think that things would work out. But in the end, well, I don´t want to blow it for people that haven´t read the book yet. All I can say is, “Read the whole thing.” I have not found any lesbian romance books like your's Olivia. I just love them. I also like your House of Romance books with Grace and Claudia. Anyway, thank you so much for this great first time lesbian book. It was one of your best pieces of work.” Stella, Glasgow, MT

    Karate, kung-fu, aikido—Jason Striker was a master of them all. His entire body was a finely honed weapon, capable of destroying even the most skilled antagonist.

There would be no rules, no fouls called, no techniques forbidden, no repercussions if men should die. No such meeting could ever occur in the United States, for here there are laws against manslaughter. But in the far reaches of his estate in Nicaragua, Vincente Pedro was the law . . .

    Benjamin January investigates the murder of a mysterious Englishman in this absorbing New Orleans-set mystery.
    
    When British spymaster Sir John Oldmixton offers Benjamin January a hundred dollars to find the murderer of an Englishman whose body has been found floating in the New Basin Canal, Benjamin turns him down immediately. As a free man of colour in New Orleans in the sweltering July of 1839, he knows this is not something he should get mixed up in.
    
    But when clues to the dead man’s identity link the death to another murder, in another July in January’s past, he is reluctantly drawn into the investigation. Nine years ago in Paris he failed to catch a killer – with tragic consequences. Now in New Orleans he must unravel the earlier murder, the one that took place during the great revolt against the Bourbon kings, to solve the second killing. At stake is not merely a hundred dollars, but hidden treasure, the fate of an innocent woman – and the lives of January’s wife, son and unborn child.

    Eleven stories of jealousy, lunacy, and murder told in the uproarious style of Joan Hess, the creator of Maggody, Arkansas. As he waits in the checkout line at Consumers Market, Jay Jay Anderson is certain of one thing: His wife, Cookie, deserves to die. In the tabloids, he finds a story about a man whose wife was kidnapped by Big Foot, and Jay Jay can’t imagine a luckier fellow. But Cookie is a wino with nicotine-stained fingers, badly bleached hair, and a voice shrill enough to cut glass. . . . Big Foot wouldn’t be interested. If Jay Jay wants out of his rotten marriage, he’ll have to kill Cookie himself.   “Big Foot Stole My Wife!” is classic Joan Hess: diabolical, hilarious, and utterly unpredictable. This sparkling collection of stories, which includes two tales culled from the Maggody police files of beloved small-town sheriff Arly Hanks, shows a master of comic mysteries operating at her very best.   Fans of the comic small-town mysteries of Donna Andrews or Liz Lipperman will adore Joan Hess. The creator of the outrageous Ozarks hamlet of Maggody, she’s one of the funniest authors in mystery fiction, and these stories show her at her laugh-out-loud best.
