This story is a work of fiction. It is based on the current events of the last eight years inside the United States and other countries. The main protagonist, John Braz, is a retired army officer and CIA operative. He operates a company called the Guardian Co. The cover for this undercover operation is that it supplies bodyguards for heads of state, CEOs of large corporations, and anyone willing to pay for such security. The greatest asset of this company is their ability to work undercover and below the radar of any government, for stealth is one of their best assets. They work with the military, the CIA, and any other intelligence unit that needs operations off the books and can’t let the White House or State Department in on their dirty little secrets. John’s two main assets are Mary Ann Orielly, a red-haired vixen, and her lifelong friend Ann Marie Casey, another raven-haired beauty. Both are brilliant, athletic, talented, and sexy. The secretive work takes these operatives to almost every corner of the globe. The pulsating covertness of romance felt by all parties keeps readers guessing who is going to end up in bed with whom, depending on the time and situation. To complicate things, John has been the fiancé of Ms. Laura Diskin, the deputy director of the CIA, for over ten years.

The mission at this time is to eradicate as much corruption and treasonous activity going on in the federal government as possible. The mission is bankrolled by a secret slush fund of the army and the CIA. This is to be accomplished using any means necessary, including omega (deadly force). This all has to be accomplished without the general populace knowing that these scurrilous senators, congressmen and congresswomen, and White House staffers are to be eliminated. John, his two amazing girls, and his support staff truly are super patriots providing the mantle of safety, security, and freedom instilled in the hearts and minds of the citizens of our country.

From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.

Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).
It’s been a lifetime (and three seasons) in the making, but Jane Gloriana Villanueva is finally ready to make her much-anticipated literary debut!

Jane the Virgin, the Golden Globe, AFI, and Peabody Award–winning The CW dramedy, has followed Jane’s telenovela-esque life—from her accidental artificial insemination and virgin birth to the infant kidnapping and murderous games of the villainous Sin Rostro to an enthralling who-will-she-choose love triangle. With these tumultuous events as inspiration, Jane’s breathtaking first novel adapts her story for a truly epic romance that captures the hope and the heartbreak that have made the television drama so beloved.

Snow Falling is a sweeping historical romance set in 1902 Miami—a time of railroad tycoons, hotel booms, and exciting expansion for the Magic City. Working at the lavish Regal Sol hotel and newly engaged to Pinkerton Detective Martin Cadden, Josephine Galena Valencia has big dreams for her future. Then, a figure from her past reemerges to change her life forever: the hotel’s dapper owner, railroad tycoon Rake Solvino.

The captivating robber baron sets her heart aflame once more, leading to a champagne-fueled night together. But when their indiscretion results in an unexpected complication, Josephine struggles to decide whether her heart truly belongs with heroic Martin or dashing Rake.

Meanwhile, in an effort to capture an elusive crime lord terrorizing the city, Detective Cadden scours the back alleys of the Magic City, tracking the nefarious villain to the Regal Sol and discovering a surprising connection to the Solvino family.

However, just when it looks like Josephine’s true heart’s desire is clear, danger strikes. Will her dreams for the future dissolve like so much falling snow or might Josephine finally get the happy ever after she’s been dreaming of for so long?
The war in Vietnam stemmed from the war in Korea (1950–1953). The United States gave military and political support to the French, who were fighting the Communist-led forces called Viet Minh and the NLF (National Liberation Front), which was being supported by the Soviet Union and Communist China. The French paratroopers, a.k.a. the French Foreign Legion, were taking a terrible beating from the enemy and sued for peace. Out of this debacle was established the Geneva Accords, in 1953, which ended the fighting for the time being. The political and military assistance the United States sent to the newly formed ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) was small at first but then grew into an Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, and Coast Guard Operation, costing the United States billions of dollars before the Paris Peace Talks ended it all on October 8, 1972. The CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) operated an airline in Southeast Asia called Air America. The pilots who were good fliers became excellent fliers, getting small and large cargo and passenger planes into and out of dangerous airstrips carved out of the hills and jungles. These pilots did not consider themselves daredevils or adrenalin junkies. They loved flying so much (plus the pay was good) they would hardly ever refuse a mission. These guys and gals harked back to the days of the flying tigers and the pilots who flew the hump. From this bunch of derring-do pilots, crewmen, airstrip operators, and communications experts was born a great cadre of patriotic personnel that today is the core of the clandestine services. Most of these operatives have military backgrounds and are retired from the military.
