Even A Stone (eBook)

Sir Charles Hallwyn is on a quest for dragon eggs when he encounters an angel sitting on a rock. The angel says he has to sit on the rock for three years, a punishment for an uncharitable remark he made at a friend's expense. Sir Charles recognizes an opportunity when he sees one (he's been selling dragons to train young dragon-fighters for years now) but as it turns out, dragons are also good at recognizing opportunities. And there's one very angry dragon-mom on the way.

Originally published in Dragons, Knights and Angels magazine, Even A Stone sees a chance meeting change Sir Charles' entire life, and an angel may learn whether even a stone warms up if you sit on it.

Even A Stone can also be purchased as part of the Seven Angels Short Story Bundle.

Honest and for True (The Adventures Of Lee And Bucky, #1) (eBook)

29-year-old Lee has a Park Slope apartment with easy access to Manhattan, loves her job as an auto mechanic, and can see her guardian angel (a wisecracker with a fascination for the Rumours album.) That's kind of a full life for a kid in the world's biggest playground. Despite what everyone thinks, she doesn't need, or want, a romantic relationship.

Far more comfortable in blue jeans and flannel than in heels and satin, Lee finds herself lying to every man she dates. To the physical trainer, she's a preschool teacher; to the guy at the bowling alley, she's a secretary. The lies keep romance at arm's length even as they drive the angel to distraction until the day she realizes she's fallen for a straight-laced accountant who's exploring his dark side through bizarre foods (please note: sea cucumber is not a vegetable). But now he thinks she's someone she's not.

Now she's got to turn those mechanic skills on herself to diagnose and repair the most important relationships in her life. And just think, she used to find it tough repairing a transmission!

Long-time comedy writer and novelist Jane Lebak serves up a hilarious comedy with angels and spare tires and a recipe for the best omelets you've ever tasted. Also what may be the most romantic toilet-fixing scene in the English language. But there really isn't an award for that, so we'll never know.

Relic of His Heart

A midwife has a chance to right a seventy-year-old wrong. Tessa delivers babies at night and raises five sons by day. When an angel appears after a birth and asks for help on a quest, her first response is, "Angels don't even exist," followed by a swift, "No." Even after he proves he exists (and lets her call him Martin) she wants nothing to do with his quest: Martin wants to find a relic stolen at the end of World War II, when the town of Barlassina was torched and its church destroyed. The relic went into the pocket of a long-dead soldier and hasn't been seen since. Without the relic, the church won't be rebuilt; without the church, Barlassina will die. It's been gone for eight decades, but Martin senses the relic is about to be "birthed back into time." He wants Tessa there when it happens. There's only one chance to make it right, and he's desperate. Tessa's family comes from that town, but really? Still no. When a bill threatens to end midwifery in Massachusetts, Tessa offers Martin a deal: she'll hunt for the relic if he'll help kill that legislation. An unlikely team, they start sifting through the past and the present, the lives of soldiers and the deaths of innocents, guilty consciences and a few consciences that aren't nearly guilty enough. The further they delve into the mystery, though, the more obvious it becomes that there's more to Martin's story. And the key to uncovering the relic may lie in whatever it is he's trying to keep hidden. Jane Lebak writes novels about angels, smart women, and smart women dealing with angels. Relic of His Heart has all three in spades, in a rousing triumph of love, persistence, and the many ways the present encounters the past.

Shattered Walls

Rumours coming out of Hell are that Satan's got a new weapon in development, only no one knows what it is. When the archangels Remiel and Zadkiel infiltrate Hell to learn the truth, they discover that new weapon only to unwittingly set it off. The weapon maims Belior, one of Satan's highest-ranking demons, but also leaves Zadkiel blind and Remiel disabled. The angels have a limited time to reverse the effects of the weapon, assuming it can be done at all, but that means sneaking back into Hell and confronting old enemies...old enemies who were once even older friends. Remiel and Zadkiel seek refuge on Earth among the early Christian community and must at the same time avoid or disarm Belior, one of their deadliest enemies. Because like any predator, a wounded demon is twice as dangerous. And Belior knows they hold his only chance to save himself. In the newest novel of the Seven Archangels saga, Jane Lebak packs action and heart into every page as the angels struggle to save their comrades, even at great personal cost.

Something's shooting down shuttles when they try to land on the surface of Pluto.

After an invisible force annihilates two shuttlecraft in rapid succession, the humans at Pluto Station find themselves pitted against a weapon they can't see.

Meanwhile, their resupply freighter is on approach, carrying all their food and equipment for the next three months. Its destruction will mean starvation.

The only humans on our solar system's outer rim have just days to identify whatever hangs in the space between Pluto and Charon-and then either disable it, or else destroy it.
