Deceptive Cadence: The Conor McBride Series, Book 1 (The Virtuosic Spy) by Kathryn Guare

Winner, 2014 Finalist Medal for Best Action/Adventure Novel, Next Generation Indie Book Awards

Readers who love “thrillers with heart” will find everything they’re looking for in this award-winning book – the first in a new suspense series.
Meet Conor McBride. He’s even more interesting than the trouble he gets into.
A talented Irish musician reluctantly reinvents himself, disappearing into an undercover identity to search for the man who ruined his career: his own brother.
On a journey from the west of Ireland to the tumultuous city of Mumbai, Conor McBride’s only goal is to redeem the brother who betrayed him.
But he’s becoming a virtuoso of a different kind in a dangerous game where the rules keep changing—and where the allies he trusted to help him may be the people he should fear the most.
As the latest addition to the popular “thrillers with heart” genre, reviewers are praising this new suspense series and its irresistible hero:
“A true international thriller!”
“…an intense adrenaline-pumping plot with all the twists and turns you would expect from the genre and an irresistible hero. Kudos to Guare for creating my new literary crush.”
“…a refreshing take on the mystery/thriller/spy genre. I was totally glued to the novel, and stayed up late last night as I was so captivated with the book.”
“…unlike a lot of suspense/thrillers I’ve read, the characters were really complex and vivid. Conor McBride is an especially great character and I hated to have the book end because I wanted to spend more time with him.”
“If you like suspense novels, you’ll love this one! Conor McBride is not your typical detective/spy.”
“…pages and pages of sheer action that kept me glued to my kindle for a whole night!”
“I found myself worrying about Conor while I was at work and not reading!”

CROW (Boston Underworld Book 1) by A. Zavarelli

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.

I had a plan.

Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?

Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.

That’s when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn’t a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn’t buying that either.

Too bad for him, I won’t let anyone get in the way of my mission.

Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He’s the worst kind of wrong- and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.

Because they took her from me, and I’m going to make them pay.

Lightning Blade: An Urban Fantasy Novel (The Ruby Callaway Trilogy Book 1) by D.N. Erikson

Even a brave new world can fall to old magic. Especially when no one can see it coming. When bounty hunter Ruby Callaway is conditionally released by the FBI after 20 years in a supernatural internment camp, the terms are simple: put down the necromancer murdering and reanimating public officials in return for amnesty. But this is no ordinary case: the necromancer annually kills on the same day, taunting the world via live broadcast. And today marks the 8th anniversary. Still easy for a legendary Realmfarer, though – right?But when the necromancer plunges a blade through her heart, Ruby awakens at midnight, back in jail. Alive. Which means one thing: today’s plan goes well beyond mere murder. Because the necromancer has thrust the world into an endless time loop that only he and Ruby can see. Which means Ruby is the only one capable of stopping him before the world burns. But as she unravels his sinister plan, one question repeats in Ruby’s mind: Just how dangerous is a vengeful serial killer with nothing but time? Lightning Blade is the first book in the Ruby Callaway series, combining dark, gritty urban fantasy with elements of futuristic sci-fi & cyberpunk. Not your typical bounty hunter. Not your typical urban fantasy.
