New York Times bestseller and “the best fiction writer in the country” (Bill O’Reilly, New York Times bestselling author) James Lee Burke returns with a powerful novel in the Holland Family series, an atmospheric coming-of-age story set in 1950s Texas, as the specter of the Korean War looms. On its surface, life in 1950s Houston is as you’d expect; stoic fathers, restless teens, drive-in movies, and souped-up Cadillacs. But underneath that surface lies a world shifting under high school junior Aaron Holland Broussard’s feet. The underlying class war between the haves and have nots is growing steadily, along with the menace of conflict overseas in Korea, providing a harrowing backdrop to his growth to manhood. But when Aaron spots the beautiful Valerie Epstein at a drive-in, he steps in when he sees her fighting with her boyfriend, Grady Harrelson. Aaron’s newfound confidence helps catch Valerie’s eye, and the two begin dating. Grady is a live wire though, and presents a looming problem for Aaron. You will recall the feelings and inspirational power of your first love, and empathize with Aaron’s extraordinary challenges to protect himself and the ones he loves in “this dark, atmospheric story” (Publishers Weekly). The Jealous Kind illustrates how first loves, friendship, violence, and power can alter what traditional America means for the people trying to find their way in a changing world.

Opposites really do attract but so do mayhem, murder and sex. After Jamal Shield, aka Preacher (Leo Sullivan), a notorious young B-More gangster, is sentenced to life in prison for multiple crimes, including an armored Brinks truck heist for a cool 5.2 million, he is surprised when he is released from prison. All he wants to do is be with his family and start a new life but there is one problem...he is charged with protecting a beautiful whore. Lourdes Beaumont (T. Styles), a prostitute from Houston, Texas, always dreamed of having a legit life. She tried to pursue that dream by building her cosmetics business but she found that the men who could help her want her for one thing, her body. When she witnesses the murder of a teenager at a high school, by the daughter of a notorious drug dealer, she is taken to Baltimore where Jamal is charged with keeping her alive. When you are as emotional and high-strung as she is, this act is easier said than done. Jamal resents having to protect Lourdes, especially when the demons from his past and the goons from hers attempt to hunt them both down. Who would have thought that through the bloodshed and bullets that they could find true love? But it means nothing if they do not survive.
One of the most popular fictional creations of our time, the chronicle of the Sackett family is also one of Louis L’Amour’s crowning achievements—and these two magnificent novels are proof . Sackett A drifter by circumstance, William Tell Sackett hungered for a place he couldn’t name but knew he had to find. South of the Tetons, through a keyhole pass, he found it: a lonely yet beautiful valley—with a fortune in gold. Then he found an even greater treasure: Ange Kerry, a courageous and resourceful woman. But the harsh ways it takes to protect his claim—and their lives—may be the one thing that drives Ange away. The Daybreakers Orrin Sackett had to be pushed into a fight. But Tyrel Sackett was born to trouble. The night Tye stepped between his brother and a bullet changed them both forever. Now their trail pointed west, to a lawless frontier town called Sante Fe. Orrin took the job of marshal, while Tye commanded respect without a badge. When a loose end from their past turns up, one brother will be forced to revert to his old ways—if the other’s dreams are to be realized.…
