    Not Like My Mother - Azra Alagic - CoverNot Like My Mother
    Survival triumphs against all odds in the
    battered Balkan lands. It is an heirloom passed down from generation to generation along with the richness of tradition, recipes, love and land.

    Samira is forced into an arranged marriage with angry, and sometimes violent, Azis who can’t recover from the mental
    torture of his part in a war he didn’t choose. Their union is the beginning of a generational story that spans from communist Yugoslavia to Australia, where the women look to each other for hope and survival. It is left to Yasna to fight the dark past of her family and find hope and love. Only through confronting the past can these women triumph over the hand they are dealt – and learn to forgive
    and dream again.

    When Mercy D’Silva, discovered her ex-boyfriend was behind an elaborate people smuggling movement, life as she once knew it, ended abruptly.

    Finding herself on the run with no idea who to turn to for help, her days seemed numbered.

    For Chase Maloney, everyone around him seemed to be
    moving on, while he was simply marking time. When he decided to take a short break from groomsmen duties to go fishing, the last thing he expected to catch was a beautiful woman!

    It wasn’t in his nature to turn his back on anyone in distress—especially not a woman… and especially not one who made him want to rethink his entire future. But protecting Mercy would prove somewhat difficult when she fought him every step of the way to keep him from getting mixed up in her problems.

    The disappearance of Matt’s sister stirs old wounds still raw from the death of their parents in a freak accident years before. When police contact Matthew to notify him of the mysterious events surrounding her kidnapping, he can’t help but feel that his introuvable ways hold him partly to blame.

    after the killer has his day in court.

    searching for answers, a psychotic killer you’ll love to hate and an eclectic group of hit-men on a mission.

    When she gives into the attraction with Blake and has mind blowing sex with him again…and again, she realizes she has to choose between him or the evidence he can give her on a silver platter…

    The Ring of Lost SoulsThe Ring of Lost Souls

    What if fairy tales were real?

    “The figure was dark with jagged little edges. While it was an image only caught fleetingly out of the corner of her eye, it was possible to make some distinction in regards to its identity, which was not unlike a raven in
    appearance.”

    Larundel – A place plagued by lost souls.

    A ring that has claimed a few of them.

    And a woman who is about to collide with a world she has forgotten about.

    When an abandoned mental asylum is set to be redeveloped, sinister events unfold in the community surrounding it.

    Isobel moves into the neighbourhood looking for a new future only to find a past she never knew belonged to her. Is she a sane person living in an insane world or a crazy person trapped in reality?

    Set in an actual abandoned mental institution on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia, THE RING OF LOST SOULS is a fast-paced fairy tale weaving together a believable blend of fantasy, urban legend and pure insanity.
