Saturday Spotlight - Pelican Book Group & Harbour Light Books

Hello Friends,
Well today is your lucky day because today I bring to you great news!

One year ago, Pelican Ventures acquired White Rose Publishing - yes the name remained the same but the great news is Pelican Ventures opened an imprint called Harbour Light Books and today is their Grand Debut!

And, what a debut it is - with 4 (yeah 4!) brand new releases!

Eddie Jones brings us BAHAMA BREEZE, a humourous tale of espionage, corrupt politicians, and a toilet tissue salesman who lands right in the middle of a hurricane--and not just the watery kind! For some light-hearted action-adventure with a love story, to boot.
ANNA FORTUNE is a government intelligence analyst who longs for tropical sunsets, early morning beach walks, and a man bold enough to steal her heart. SONNY CAY is a large, lumbering toilet paper salesman with a terminal disease, unpaid medical bills and the haunting memory of a girl he lost years ago. She knows the location of terrorist cells, corrupt politicians and that no man can be trusted to keep his word, wedding date or promise to love forever. He knows life is for the taking, love for the making and both end all too soon. So when Anna is ordered to protect a presidential candidate polling in the single digits on a fund-raising junket in the Bahamas, both get a second chance at true love. He came because he loved her, because all those years ago, she’d stirred him the way no woman ever had. She was his Mt. Everest, the pinnacle of his small world. His head told him to run; his heart made him stay. Now only the gale force winds of a “Bahama Breeze” can cool the white-hot embers of old flames erupting.  BAHAMA BREEZE is available in Ebook & Print!

Want more adventure? Check out Lilly Maytree's GOLD TRAP. This fun adventure will whisk you to Africa where nothing is as it seems, but all is a riot!
I simply wanted to step out of my ordinary life and find the Divine Appointment God had planned for me. I’d read about Mary Kinglsey, and it occurred to me that if I truly wanted to share an historical biography with my students, hers was it. So (with much trepidation) I booked the cheapest tour I could find to visit the Dark Continent of Africa. Who knew I’d meet a psychic named Vidalia (after the onion?) — not that I should have been surprised (after all, Bremen Tours specialized in “Voodoo relics of the Dark Continent,” or so it was emblazoned on their carry-alls, one of which I owned). But life got really strange when I met a mad (or was he drunk?) professor, a dashing prince (or possibly, the villain), a village headman (the warrior king? Or the prince of thieves?) and a witchdoctor who was neither witch nor doctor, but rather the sinister embodiment of a charlatan who preyed on tourists...and let’s not forget the man who started the whole mess—an embezzler-turned-kidnapper…of me! And that’s not to mention floating down a river full of crocodiles, two boys who wanted to hold me for ransom, an earthquake, a cave-in, the leopard in my bed, and a pink hippopotamus. In the end, my Divine Appointment from God held mystery, excitement and a whole lot more. Enjoy my adventure, Dear Reader, because I did! 
                 GOLD TRAP is also available in Ebook & Print!

Michael Duncan takes allegorical fantasy to a whole new level...and another world in SHADOWS: BOOK OF ALETH, PART ONE. "If history is written by the victorious, what if the victors lied?" Pick up a copy for the answer to that question.
A stolen text...When the Book of Aleth is stolen, Aaron, captain of the Royal Guard, is ordered by Emperor Therion to reclaim the ancient tome. The mission thrusts Aaron into a world he's never known--a world of elves and dwarves, races long thought extinct; a world where everything he has known and believed is a lie. A secret past... Forced to challenge his long-held beliefs, Aaron and his companions, two soldiers of the Royal Guard and two men of the Dwarvish kingdom of Brekken-Dahl, set out on a quest to recover the Book. Aaron resolves to discover the truth, and rescue the empire he is sworn to protect.   Available in Ebook & Print. 

Jayne E. Self brings us a cozy mystery in MURDER IN HUM HARBOUR. You won't know who did it 'til the very end...not even Gailynn, our quirky sleuth could figure it out straight away.
There's a Sleuth on the loose... Part-time medical receptionist, part-time jewelry crafter, Gailynn MacDonald thinks she knows everything about everyone in Hum Harbour, Nova Scotia. That's the way she likes it. But when her former employer Doc Campbell turns up dead aboard his beached yacht, and her sister-in-law becomes the prime suspect, quirky, over-excitable Gailynn vows to unmask the killer. With Geoff Grant, Doc's handsome replacement, by her side Gailynn uncovers secrets and confronts childhood fears. And in the process she discovers that catching a killer is a lot like crafting her seaglass jewelry... it's all in the details.
 Available in Ebook & Print.
