Zero Ward by Kim Pritekel – 237 pages
World War II was a time of fear, confusion and the renewal of a depression-ravaged country. Danielle Felts, daughter of dairy farmers in the heartland, suffered from her own fear and confusion about her own life, and herself. Determined to make something of her life that didn’t require udders, she makes a drastic decision to join the Navy, becoming Daniel Felts.

Kate Adams is an All-American girl living in San Diego affluence with her wealthy parents. All the money in the world couldn’t curb Kate’s desire to learn and become more than her money-hungry mother could ever be. Made to go to a USO dance by her boy-crazy best friend, Carol, Kate has a chance encounter with the most handsome man she’s ever seen. Unable to get him out of her mind, she tracks him down and falls in love with Daniel Felts.

Zero Ward is an epic story which zig zags its way through thirty years of history, love and loss, only to end up in the greatest love story for two generations.

Mel And Janice Series by D. J. Belt

The Tomb
Mel and Janice (with a bit of help from their friends) discover and open the tomb of Xena and Gabrielle, but with a twist: unanswered questions are popping up all over, robbers attempt desecration of the tomb, a ghost (?) appears, and the God of War (who is really ticked off) is trying to wreak his vengance on them as they attempt to spirit the remains to Athens. After all, who better to figure out what finally happened to X and G than their twentieth-century alter egos, Mel and Jan?

In this sequel to The Tomb, Melinda Pappas and Janice Covington are invited to France by their old friends Mack and Sallie, who have discovered a cache of priceless ancient documents, Gabrielle’s previously unknown writings among them. Jan is confounded by the shocking content of the writings, and the mysterious specter which haunts her as she ponders their puzzle. The papers disappear and Jan is arrested for their theft.

As she languishes in a jail cell, Mel summons help from the shadowy depths of the postwar “intelligence” community. A motley collection of characters emerge to attempt Jan’s rescue as Jan unravels the mystery of Gabrielle’s latter days and the identity of the odd specter which visits her.

Lives thrown together in the strangest of ways, they fell in love. But CJ’s worst nightmare just won’t go away.

After The Honeymoon
Special Agent CJ Carson and Hollywood actress Kate Marshall are back. After their wedding, everyday life takes over once again and they find themselves a little more involved in an FBI case than they’d like to be. And just how far back does it go?

CJ and Kate’s lives are busy as they approach the holiday season, each of them hoping for some time off. But as CJ deals with one of the worst cases of her career, Kate proves that she is strong in more ways than one. Learning life’s lessons can be tough as the darkness threatens to take hold of the agent. But can Kate hold it all together?

After So Long
Our dynamic duo are better than ever. Good relationship, good jobs, good friends, good times. Not everyone is so lucky and when a fourteen year long case comes across CJ’s desk, involving someone she loves, the agent decides that a little friendly meddling is in order and enlists her wife to help.

After The Damage Was Done
When another piece of the set collapses at the Olympian Studios, the police begin an investigation and CJ Carson’s life is turned upside down.

Will the adoption run smoothly after the damage is done?

After The Last Time
Life is moving along for the newly enlarged Carson family. Adjusting to one another is a learning process for everyone, and so very worth the effort. But when a dangerous convict who was captured by the Specialist Serial Homicide Unit escapes custody, CJ takes some slightly drastic measures to protect her loved ones. Will it be enough?

After Jack
As Kate Carson’s third Wedding Anniversary comes around, she is thinking about life, counting her blessings and living in the moment. Jack Bannerman is thinking about drinking, counting his hangovers and living in an alcohol-induced fog. When they both return to work and end up caught in the crossfire, will Jack be a hero or a coward?
