Coming soon from Thomas Nelson ~ YA, SpecFic & more

Here's some covers for you to enjoy from Thomas Nelson and not a bonnet or gown in sight - LOL!

I can't wait to read Finley's story after meeting her in Jenny's Save the Date and Lis Wiehl's Waking Hours and Ross Lawhead's The Realms Thereunder look enthralling. Nothing like a good suspense to get the blood flowing!

How about you?

And don't worry, I'll have some Thomas Nelson frills coming your way soon ;-)

There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B Jones

In a small cottage house in rural Ireland, Finley discovers she can no longer outrun the past.

When Finley travels to Ireland as a foreign exchange student, she hopes to create a new identity and get some answers from the God who took her brother away and seems to have left her high and dry.

But from the moment she boards the plane and sits by Beckett Rush, teen star of the hottest vampire flicks, nothing goes according to Finley’s plan.

When she gets too close to Beckett, a classmate goes on a mission to make sure Finley packs her bags, departs Ireland—and leaves Beckett alone.

Finley tries to balance it all—disasters on the set of Beckett's new movie, the demands of school, and her growing romance with one actor who is not what he seems. Yet Finley is also not who she portrays to Beckett and her friends.

For the first time in her life, Finley must get honest with herself to get right with God.

Ever since he woke up in a terrorist torture chamber—with a year of his life erased from his mind—Charlie West has been on the run. He has one desperate hope of getting his life back: track down the mysterious agent named Waterman. But in fact, reaching Waterman—and recovering the secrets lost in his own memory—will only increase his danger. Because a team of ruthless killers is rapidly closing in on him, determined to stop him from finding the answers. And the truth of the matter is more incredible . . . and more deadly . . . than he could ever imagine.

Invasion by Jon S. Lewis

He didn't ask for the job, but now all that stands between us and chaos . . . is Colt.

Colt McAlister was having the summer of his life. He spent his days surfing and his nights playing guitar on the beach with friends. He even met a girl and got his first car. But everything changes when his parents are killed in a freak accident.

He's forced to leave his old life behind and move to Arizona with his grandfather. The only person he knows at the new high school is a childhood friend named Dani. And Oz, a guy he's sure he's never met but who is strangely familiar.

But what if his parents' death wasn't an accident? His mother, and investigative reporter, was going to expose a secret mind-control program run by one of the world's largest companies. Before she could release the story, what if agents from Trident Biotech made sure she couldn't go public?

Vowing to uncover truth, Colt gets drawn into a secret world of aliens, shapeshifters, flying motorcycles, and invisible getaways.

The invasion has begun.

King Raven by Stephen Lawhead

A completely re-imagined epic of the man known as Robin Hoodavailable in one volume for the first time.

Hood—Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood.

The Realms Thereunder by Ross Lawhead

Uncover a land that has been hidden for over a thousand years.

Beneath the land of Britain, a great army is sleeping. On a visit to an old church, Daniel Tully and Freya Reynolds awaken two ancient knights from a centuries-old slumber. They are kidnapped and taken to an underground city that stands in peril, besieged in all directions by a vicious warhost. Nidergeard is the only thing protecting the upper world's blissful ignorance of mythical forces that have been held at bay since the creation of the world. In order to return home, Daniel and Freya must strike at the heart of the opposer's power.

Fast forward eight years. Daniel, now homeless, still wages what he believes to be a righteous war against those he judges to be evil. Freya has tried to put the past behind her and concentrate on getting an education, a job, and a life. When they reconnect in Oxford, unseen forces begin to ally against them. Daniel is pulled through a portal and into another world. Freya is abducted by someone—some thing—posing as her professor and drugged to keep her in a delusional state. After they finally break free, neither can deny the truth . . . they must return to Nidergeard and resume the battle.

With a thrilling narrative that draws heavily upon British mythology, The Realms Thereunder will quickly establish Ross Lawhead as a major new voice in fantasy.

The Bone House by Stephen Lawhead

Kit is on a quest for the ultimate treasure. But are his travels in time changing history for better or worse?

When Kit Livingstone’s great grandfather appeared to him in a deserted alley during a London rainstorm, he revealed an incredible story: the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legend but are in fact pathways to other worlds. An intricate code—a map of bizarre symbols—is the roadmap they need to navigate the multi-layered universe. But the five pieces have gone missing.

Braving constant danger, Kit accepts his place in the adventure—though he has no idea just how critical a role he’ll play. As he comes closer to finding pieces of the missing map, his enemies—and the scope of his mission—increase exponentially. In The Bone House, Kit races through Egyptian tombs, prehistoric realities, and strange variations of our own time. And in each, he finds both allies and enemies to spare.

The Bright Empires series—from acclaimed author Stephen Lawhead—is a unique blending of epic treasure hunt, alternate realities, cutting-edge physics, philosophy, and mystery. A pulse-pounding, page-turning series unlike any other.

Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson

All towns have secrets. Some have demons.

Welcome to East Salem. A sleepy town with a history older than America where things are just a bit off. Where the supernatural bleeds into the everyday.

And where a tragic murder mystery is underway. A high school girl is found dead in the town park. And where forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris wants answers. All the suspects are teenagers who were at the party with her the night before—but who woke up the next morning with no memory of what transpired. Even though evidence confirms they were all at the scene of the crime.

Former pro-football linebacker—and local celebrity—Tommy Gunderson finds himself drawn to the case. And to Dani—who he last spoke with on their one high school date forever ago. Yet his celebrity status opens doors barred to Dani—so they form an awkward alliance.

They soon realize that there’s more to the mystery than murder. And more to the evil they are facing than a mere human killer.

The supernatural series awakens this fall— with an official street date of October 4, 2011.

The Baker’s Wife by Erin Healy

If what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, why is Audrey growing weaker by the day?

It’s been a tough year for Audrey's family. Her husband Geoff, a pastor, lost his job after a scandal rocked their congregation.

Audrey's never lost faith. She's held her family together. Their attempt to resurrect a failing bakery is an effort to heal the family wounds and restore their place in the community.

Late to the bakery one dim, foggy morning, Audrey strikes a vehicle that she can’t see even after the collision settles. Emerging from her car into the fog, she discovers she’s hit a motor scooter. There’s no rider in sight. There’s blood, though, so much that she slips in it, injuring her wrists.

The absence of the scooter driver is a mystery, especially to Sergeant Jack Mansfield, the detective and church member who drove Geoff from his pulpit. The scooter belongs to Jack’s wife, Julie, a teacher at the local high school. She has vanished like morning fog.

Though there is no evidence to support Jack’s growing suspicion that Audrey and Geoff were involved in Julie’s disappearance, the detective is convinced of their guilt. Jack’s ability to reason slips as the leads on his wife dry up.

When Jack takes the tiny bakery and its patrons hostage, Audrey must find Julie and unravel the secret of her own mysterious suffering before Jack comes undone.
