In the Shadow of Power by Viveca Sten

What do the new arrivals on Sandhamn Island have to fear? Their own secrets—in this gripping novel of suspense by the bestselling author of In the Heat of the Moment.

The new summer house on Sandhamn Island is an architectural dream for its owner, Carsten Jonsson. It’s a nightmare for the locals. The venture capitalist has flouted local traditions, property lines, and the natural beauty of the coastline. He’s also too wealthy and arrogant to heed the anonymous warnings to leave. The threats escalate when his guest lodge is burned to the ground and an unidentifiable corpse is found in the charred ruins.

Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson isn’t sure if it’s murder or a tragic accident. Until his friend attorney Nora Linde is drawn into the investigation. Nora’s emotional investment in Carsten’s fragile and fearful wife, Celia, is yielding a new level of suspicion: that the Jonssons are hiding more than anyone can imagine. Now Thomas and Nora must sift through the ashes of a puzzling crime and step into the shadows of a powerful family, whose deadly secrets are coming to light on Sandhamn.

Indistractable by Nir Eyal

Enter for a chance to win 1 of 20 copies of INDISTRACTABLE!

What would be possible if you followed through on your best intentions? What could you accomplish if you could stay focused and overcome distractions? What if you had the power to become “indistractable?”

International bestselling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley’s handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishing Hooked, Eyal reveals distraction’s Achilles’ heel in his groundbreaking new book.

In Indistractable, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.

Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model. Indistractable reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.

Inside, Eyal overturns conventional wisdom and reveals:
-Why distraction at work is a symptom of a dysfunctional company culture—and how to fix it
- What really drives human behavior and why “time management is pain management”
- Why your relationships (and your sex life) depend on you becoming indistractable
- How to raise indistractable children in an increasingly distracting world
- And more!

If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha

Enter for a chance to win one of 75 advance copies of IF I HAD YOUR FACE by Frances Cha, on sale April 21!

"Even as a girl, I knew the only chance I had was to change my face...even before a fortune-teller told me so."

Kyuri is a heartbreakingly beautiful woman with a hard-won job at a "room salon," an exclusive bar where she entertains businessmen while they drink. Though she prides herself on her cold, clear-eyed approach to life, an impulsive mistake with a client may come to threaten her livelihood.

Her roomate, Miho, is a talented artist who grew up in an orphanage but won a scholarship to study art in New York. Returning to Korea after college, she finds herself in a precarious relationship with the super-wealthy heir to one of Korea's biggest companies.

Down the hall in their apartment building lives Ara, a hair stylist for whom two preoccupations sustain her: obsession with a boy-band pop star, and a best friend who is saving up for the extreme plastic surgery that is commonplance.

And Wonna, one floor below, is a newlywed trying to get pregnant with a child that she and her husband have no idea how they can afford to raise and educate in the cutthroat economy.

Together, their stories tell a gripping tale that's seemingly unfamiliar, yet unmistakably universal in the way that their tentative friendships may have to be their saving grace.

Ravenous by Helen Hardt

****SIGNED ADVANCE COPIES****

Enter for a chance to win one of 10 signed advance paperback copies of Ravenous (Steel Brothers Saga 11) by #1 NYT bestselling author Helen Hardt.

Synopsis...

Bryce Simpson did the only thing he could. He spurned Marjorie Steel. Even though he’ll be living on her ranch, he is determined to stay away from her. She’s worthy of more than he can even think about giving, especially now that long-buried memories are surfacing and he’s learning that his father’s sins may go even deeper than he imagined.

Bryce’s rejection destroys Marjorie, and she descends to a dark place she thought she’d abandoned forever. She emerges stronger, though, and is determined not to let heartbreak rule her life. Change is the answer, she’s sure, so she makes plans—plans that include a handsome personal trainer she meets at the gym.

When Bryce and Marjorie are thrown together, though, their ravenous hunger for each other takes over, leaving both of them more vulnerable than they realize.

Scourge of the Silver Wings by Juho Pohjalainen

I have a few extra printed copies of Scourge of the Silver Wings, a true underdog fantasy story, lying around. Do you want one? You can read it at night under your covers, with a flashlight!

A small and twitchy stranger arrives to a naval trading port. He keeps to himself at first, but can (when pushed) spin an impressive and likely untrue tale of fantastic and bizarre naval voyages. Telling this tale in a bar corner should make for a reasonable break, and a break is what he now wants.

But the town is a stage for an ideological war about to turn hot, and both sides would much like Peal to join their ranks and help them achieve total dominion over the region. They've seen through Peal's innocent disguise, just enough to realize he is more than he seems and would make for an asset... yet not nearly enough to understand that this might be a very, very bad idea.

When his hand is forced, Peal will make the survivors regret their impertinence - but he may also accumulate a few fresh regrets of his own. Far more is at stake here than material wealth or glory.

Participate in the giveaway to see how he fares - you've nothing at all to lose!
