Diamonds in the Dust Excerpt :

“She’s a pretty wildflower destined for my brother's vase. I'll make her mine, even if how I do it will make flowers wilt.” A DARK FRENCH MAFIA ROMANCE Men like us, we see things. We do things, things that make us unfeeling. That's the price of power and money, of living la belle vie and running the French mafia. Then she came along like a pretty wildflower pushing through the cracks on a dirty pavement - fragile yet resilient, a breath of beauty among the filth. She was supposed to be just another job, a nameless person I was to pluck from her life and hand to my brother, nothing but a pawn in the gamble of our diamond business. There's a psychological label for men like us. We lack empathy and guilt. We do things to have what we want, things that make flowers wilt. Note: Diamonds in the Dust is Book 1 of the Diamonds are Forever trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. The story continues in Diamonds in the Rough (Book 2) and concludes in Diamonds are Forever (Book 3).

Into Dust and Fire Excerpt :

“A moving, beautifully-written tale… Rachel Cox has produced a masterpiece of storytelling, infused with romance, danger, adventure, humor, and heartbreaking loss. It is, hands down, the best description of the transformation of untested young men into soldiers that I have ever read.” — Lynne Olson, New York Times Bestselling Author of Last Hope Island The untold story of five young American friends who left the ivory towers at Harvard and Dartmouth to take on Rommel's Panzers under the blazing sun of North Africa. In the spring of 1941, with Europe consumed by war and occupation, Britain stood alone against the Nazi menace. The United States remained wary of joining the costly and destructive conflict. But for five extraordinary young Americans, the global threat of fascism was too great to ignore. Six months before Pearl Harbor, these courageous idealists left their promising futures behind to join the beleaguered British Army. Fighting as foreigners, they were shipped off to join the Desert Rats, the 7th Armoured Division of the British Eighth Army, who were battling Field Marshal Rommel’s panzer division. The Yanks would lead antitank and machine-gun platoons into combat at the Second Battle of El Alamein, the twelve-day epic of tank warfare that would ultimately turn the tide for the Allies. A fitting tribute to five men whose commitment to freedom transcended national boundaries, Into Dust and Fire is a gripping true tale of idealism, courage, camaraderie, sacrifice, and heroism.

What started out as a simple rescue has taken me down a road I never could’ve imagined. And I’ll do anything to keep her in my life. The ugliness of my past is buried deep.

A Dancer in the Dust Excerpt :

Twenty years ago, Ray Campbell, now a cautious risk-management consultant, was a well-intentioned aid worker dedicated to improving conditions in Lubanda, a newly independent African country. He is forced to reconsider that year of living dangerously when a friend from his time in Lubanda is found murdered in a New York alley. Signs suggest that this most recent tragedy is rooted in the far more distant one of Martine Aubert, the only woman Ray ever truly loved and whose fate he’d sealed in a moment of grievous error: “In Lubanda, twenty years before, I’d rolled the dice for a woman who was not even present at the table, and on the outcome of that toss, a braver and more knowing heart than mine had been forfeited.” Martine Aubert was a white, native Lubandan farmer whose dream for her homeland starkly conflicted with those charged with its so-called development. But Ray's failure to understand Martine’s commitment to her country had placed a noose around her neck, one tightened by a circle of vicious men, cruel taunts, and whistling machetes. It is Ray's return to the passion he’d once felt for Martine that makes A Dancer in the Dust the enthralling and moving story of two loves: Ray’s love for Martine Aubert, and Martine’s love for a homeland that did not love her back.

Seed to Harvest Excerpt :

Do you ever wonder why the Bible uses so many references to seeds, plants, and harvest? Or why the first home for humanity was a garden? Does the abundance of foliage all around us perhaps have some wisdom from our maker entwined within its roots? When we compare our lives to the life cycle of plants, we can see similarities that allow us to relate, and in that relationship, there is wisdom and answers. Our world is surrounded by plant life in various stages of their life cycle, from seed form to harvest. There's no mistake that God first created a garden and had us work the ground. God's garden is the world around us! When we sit in the garden, not only are we blessed by God's colorful artistry, but we find wisdom for how to live our lives in abundance, producing fruit for God's harvest. As you read this book, you will discover God's love, his plan, and his purpose for you as you compare yourself to the seed, sprout, leaves, flowers, fruit, and harvest. You will also learn from God's divine design as we study the storms and pests that may hinder growth and stall or completely stop a potential harvest. How can we be prepared to weather the storms in our life? Is there something to be learned from the plants that have survived through drought, storms, and pests? You do not have to be a farmer or gardener to enjoy this book because everything we discuss is all around you! If your thumb isn't even the faintest bit of green you can still gain great wisdom from this book. God does not call the qualified but qualifies the called and that is you! Believe it or not, you are valuable. You are important in God's massive design, and he wants your help with the harvest. This book dives deep into the promises of God and how he planted you specifically with a purpose to enact change in this world, whether big or small, it's all impactful and so are you. 2

Honor in the Dust Excerpt :

“Fascinating.”—New York Times Book Review • “Well-written.”—The Boston Globe • “Extraordinary.”—The Christian Science Monitor • “A compelling page-turner.”—Adam Hochschild On the eve of a new century, an up-and-coming Theodore Roosevelt set out to transform the U.S. into a major world power. The Spanish-American War would forever change America's standing in global affairs, and drive the young nation into its own imperial showdown in the Philippines. From Admiral George Dewey's legendary naval victory in Manila Bay to the Rough Riders' heroic charge up San Juan Hill, from Roosevelt's rise to the presidency to charges of U.S. military misconduct in the Philippines, Honor in the Dust brilliantly captures an era brimming with American optimism and confidence as the nation expanded its influence abroad.
