The Contradiction Series Cookbook is a companion cookbook to the Sweet Contradiction and Perfect Contradiction novels by Peggy Martinez. With over 50 perfectly sweet southern recipes, your stomach is sure to thank you. Check out the official cover reveal below.

Ebook - Cook Book
RELEASE DATE: JULY 14, 2015
The Contradictions Series Cookbook is a recipe book based on the Contradiction Novels by Peggy Martinez. The characters and stories found in the Contradiction Novels may be fictional, but the love the author has for all things country and southern is all too real. In this recipe book, you will find over fifty recipes that have been southern-kitchen tested and country-simple approved. Some have been passed down for generations, and some are just plain easy and fun. But all of them could have easily been one of the recipes Jennifer Collins uses in Sweet Contradiction or Perfect Contradiction. So, pull a chair up, grab a glass of sweet iced tea, and expect your little heart to be blessed. We're glad y'all are here.

READ SWEET CONTRADICTION TODAY

Sweet Contradiction
When Beth Michaels high tailed it out of the hole-in-the-road town she grew up in, she only had two goals. One--get as far away as quickly as possible, and two--never set foot in her parents' home again. But when she receives a heart breaking call from her childhood best friend, Jen, she has no choice but to turn her '56 Ford pickup back in the direction of Salem, Missouri to attend a funeral.
There's a new local in town when Beth arrives, and suddenly, it ain't all that easy for her to remember her rules for dating.
#1. Cookie-cutter-perfect guys ain't her type.
#2. Tie wearin' and church frequentin' is an automatic dismissal.
#3. Most importantly, never date anyone from small minded, conservative, Bible-thumping towns like Salem.
Unfortunately, Matthew Wright breaks all her rules and then some. Matt might be from a small town and have small town values, but that doesn't mean he fits into a little slot of Beth's preconceived notions. After all, ever so often good guys are good. Now if he could just convince Beth to let go of her past and give him a chance, he's pretty sure there's a whole lotta sweet under that prickly exterior.
His own ... Sweet Contradiction.

In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she's powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he's determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.
Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she's assigned as Eric's class partner. He won't help, let alone talk to her, but she's determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he's strived to hide.

Playing with Fire, the highly anticipated new novel by Sherry Ficklin, was loaded onto the web, with the cover set to be revealed in June. But in some dark corner of the internet, someone had other plans. Today, a glitch deep in the Amazon mainframe posted the book, and its cover early. The mysterious hacker apparently couldn’t wait to pre-order the first of the #HACKER novels, and now, you don’t have to wait either.
PWF
One brilliant young hacker. One experimental government aircraft. One chance to keep it all from going up in flames.
Still recovering from her troubled past, Farris is no stranger to change. But when the military transfers her father across the country to an experimental aircraft squadron, settling in to a new life is the least of her problems. As a series of apparent computer glitches threaten the security of the fleet and the blame falls on her father, she decides to put her computer skills to use digging up the truth. Soon she’s drawn into the perilous world of a hacker who is determined to ground the fleet—at any cost.
When all signs lead to someone close to her as the mastermind, Farris will have to burn more than bridges to get to the truth. She will have to risk her fragile new life to uncover the identity of the cyber criminal before they can escalate from harmless tampering… to all out murder.

Release Day for Miss Match by Lindzee Armstrong!!

final_MIssMatch_CVR_LRG


MISS MATCH is finally here! I'm so excited to share the rest of Brooke and Luke's story with the world. To celebrate, it's on sale for $0.99 this week only. Sale ends May 10th! About MISS MATCH Billionaire CEO Luke Ryder doesn’t want to hire his best friend, Brooke, as his matchmaker. Not when he’s been in love with her for eight years. Too bad she doesn’t see him as relationship material and is engaged to another man. If the matchmaking company she works for closes, Brooke is out of a job, and Luke is out a best friend. There will be nothing stopping her from moving to Italy with her fiancé. And Luke isn’t about to let that happen. Brooke’s dream career may be crumbling, and she will do anything to keep Toujour in the black. Even recruit Luke, America’s favorite bachelor, as her next client. Surely his perfect smile and swollen bank account will send clients swarming to their doors. But when matching up Luke works a little too well, Brooke wonders if she’s with the right man. Maybe she should finally forget Luke’s playboy image and admit he’s changed. All Brooke has to decide is if she’s willing to risk her heart.

   Excerpt from MISS MATCH Brooke focused on her laptop screen. “I already filled in all the basics for you—name, age, occupation, that sort of thing. Hope you don’t mind.” Luke put a hand to his chest in mock horror. “I thought only a client could fill out this questionnaire. Isn’t that what you told me last night?” She rolled her eyes. “I can delete it all and we can start over.” “No, no.” He sniffed dramatically. “I can tell you’re trying to get rid of me as quickly as possible.” And there he was—a glimpse of the old Luke. Brooke grinned. Maybe this matchmaking thing would be good for him after all. “Okay, first question. What qualities are you looking for in a partner?” “Oh, that’s easy. Someone hot.” Brooke burst out laughing. “And what exactly is your definition of ‘hot?’” “I’m looking at it.” Brooke’s laughter died. Her cheeks heated, and she looked away. “Be serious.” “I am.” “Luke, you can’t tell me I’m hot.” “Why not? It’s true.” “Well, because . . .” Because Antonio would hate it. Because I’m glad you find me attractive. “Because I’m engaged.” Luke raised an eyebrow. “Being engaged doesn’t diminish your hotness. It’s not like there’s a rule against complimenting you.”
  “Maybe there should be.” Her heart pounded. “We don’t want to mess up our lucky number fourteen by adding another rule.” “Fourteen isn’t a lucky number.” “Relax, Brooke.” Luke motioned to her laptop. “Honestly, I want someone compassionate. Someone loyal. I want a girl who cares more about others than she cares about herself. Someone who likes me for me and not for my money.” “That’s a pretty generic answer.” He shrugged. “I could make up something better.”

ABOUT THE LOST IMPERIALS SERIES:

In a battle for control of the time stream, the past and the future will collide, either saving mankind—or destroying it.
The Tesla Institute stands on one side of the battle. Controlled by the mind of one of the greatest inventors in history, the Institute recruits gifted, young time travelers called Rifters. Those who survive his training are sent into history with the mission to preserve the time stream, recruit more of their kind, and better humanity through subtle, controlled event manipulation.
Standing in the way are the Hollows, a rogue group of Rifters who have vowed to put an end to the Tesla Institute—at all costs. They steal, cheat, and bend history to their own ends. Using children stolen from time as their personal armies, they fight not only for control of time itself, but also for self-preservation.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

In order to support his hobby of writing, Tyler decided to pursue dentistry. He graduated from Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in 2002. He then completed a four year residency at the University of Pennsylvania. In June 2006, he opened Jolley Smiles in Grand Junction, CO. Snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking, fly fishing, bird hunting, camping, hiking, and backpacking are the things he enjoys doing with his family. When life gets stressful he escapes to unseen worlds.
Sherry is a full time writer from Colorado where she lives with her husband, four kids, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens and house guests. A former military brat, she loves to travel, eat exotic food, and meet new people. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she's on deadline at which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is often only seen in blurry photographs.
