The Loyal Heart Excerpt :

Robert came to Galveston to fulfill his promise to a dying man and look after his widow. He didn’t expect to find love in the unlikeliest of places. Robert Truax, former Second Lieutenant and Confederate officer in the Civil War, made a promise to his comrade Phillip Markham. If anything happened to Phillip, Robert would look after his beloved wife, Miranda. She was his life, his world, his everything. After the war, Robert is left to pick up the pieces and fulfill his pact. When he arrives at Miranda's home in Galveston, Texas, things are worse than he imagined. Phillip's name has been dragged through the mud, everyone in town believes him to be a traitor, and his widow is treated as an outcast. Even more disturbing is her emotional well-being. Miranda seems hopeless, lost, and so very alone. Robert had thought his duty would be simple. He would help Miranda as quickly as possible in order to honor a promise. But the moment Robert laid eyes on her, his plans changed. He's mesmerized by her beauty and yearns to help her in any way he can. He makes it his duty to protect Miranda, turn her reputation around, and to find some way to help her smile again. But it doesn't prove to be an easy task—Robert knows something about Phillip that could shake Miranda to the core and alter her view of the man she thought she knew so well.

Narrow Escapes and Wilderness Adventures Excerpt :

Here’s a powerful collection of 21 true action stories—the best of Ben East, his most exciting and inspiring narratives of narrow escape, written over the past 30 years. In each of these thrilling tales, this master outdoor writer recreates a dramatic adventure of an ordinary man, usually alone, facing and surviving a sudden threat to his life. All the stories in NARROW ESCAPES AND WILDERNESS ADVENTURES are true. Wherever possible, Ben East has personally interviewed the survivors of these ordeals. The authenticity, immediacy and color of each adventure is heightened by the wealth of detail the author has culled from local newspaper accounts, hospital records, even the correspondence about these men, written by families and friends. Each spellbinding story in NARROW ESCAPES AND WILDERNESS ADVENTURES unfolds against a great outdoors background: Alaska, Equatorial Africa, the Florida Keys, the Michigan woods and many others. In these locales, the men in Ben East’s stories battle heroically to stay alive as they find themselves hopelessly lost, stranded in sub-zero wastes, confronted by enraged beasts, or swamped by savage seas. Suspense continuously mounts as these amateur hunters and fishermen summon previously untapped wells of courage and endurance and, above all, their will to live when nature on the rampage strikes. In addition to being fascinating reading, this book is, in a real sense, an invaluable survival manual which shows how to improve the safety of your outdoor trips and how to survive dangers that cannot be foreseen.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva’s celebrated debut novel, The Unlikely Spy, is “A ROLLER-COASTER WORLD WAR II ADVENTURE that conjures up memories of the best of Ken Follett and Frederick Forsyth” (The Orlando Sentinel). “In wartime,” Winston Churchill wrote, “truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” For Britain’s counterintelligence operations, this meant finding the unlikeliest agent imaginable—a history professor named Alfred Vicary, handpicked by Churchill himself to expose a highly dangerous, but unknown, traitor. The Nazis, however, have also chosen an unlikely agent. Catherine Blake is the beautiful widow of a war hero, a hospital volunteer—and a Nazi spy under direct orders from Hitler: uncover the Allied plans for D-Day...

Berlin Command Excerpt :

Berlin Command, first published in 1950, is Brig. General Frank Howley's account of his four-year tenure in post-World War II Berlin with the U.S. Military Government. Filled with stories of Soviet complicity in undermining Allied efforts to rebuild the city, the book is throughout a testament to the ideals of freedom and democracy and the American determination to remain in Berlin, even though surrounded by a hostile opponent willing to lie, cheat, kidnap, rape, and steal to achieve its ends. Howley oversaw Allied efforts to counter the Soviets, and was instrumental in organizing massive airlifts of food, heating fuel, and other supplies that meant survival for the hungry, cold Berliners. General Howley was an unsung hero of the early Cold War period, and Berlin Command is a fascinating account of this historic period when Europe's fate was still being decided.
