Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

“I could feel my chin falling towards my chest, my back hunching forward. My body was acting on its own, and my mind was empty, like all my memories had been erased. There was scenery behind my lids. Aqua colored water and powdery sand that extended for miles. I was never going back to coke. I wanted more heroin. And I wanted it now.”

Leaving behind a nightmarish college experience, nineteen-year-old Nicole and her best friend Eric escape their home of Bangor, Maine to start a new life in Boston. Fragile and scared, Nicole desperately seeks a new beginning to help erase her past. But there is something besides freedom waiting for her in the shadows–a drug that will make every day a nightmare.

Heroin.

With one taste, the love that once flowed through Nicole’s veins turns into cravings. Tracks mark the passing of time, and heroin’s grip gets tighter. It holds her hand through deaths and prostitution, but her addiction keeps her in the darkness. When her family tries to strike a match to help light her way, Nicole must choose between a life she can hardly remember, or a love for heroin she’ll never forget.

Loving sushi turns lethal when an ancient culture defined by its cuisine feels threatened.

The rich rewards of Japan’s exclusive seafood markets incite the world’s elite suppliers as Seth Tinsley’s Hatteras Island exports spawn outrageous profits and a charmed life. When his friends die in bizarre accidents, Seth is inundated with survivors’ guilt and exhausts his life savings defending unwarranted murder charges. As Seth’s life crashes and his lucrative sales to Japan dwindle, he never notices his success has attracted predators.

A startling buy-out offer for his troubled export business from an Osaka conglomerate interrupts Seth’s grief and in a desperate need for cash to launch his secret aquatic technology, he goes against his instincts and accepts the mysterious deal.

On the business trip of a lifetime to Tokyo and the Tsukiji Market to shock the international seafood establishment with the launch of his dynamic invention, Seth ends up alone and hunted in Japan, wanted by the JNP for mass-murder and marked expendable by the US Government.

In 1290, Scotland is without a king. Two families – the Bruces and the Balliols – vie for the throne.

Robert the Bruce is in love with Elizabeth de Burgh, the daughter of an adherent of the ruthless Longshanks, King of England. In order to marry her and not give up his chances of someday becoming King of Scots, Robert must abandon his rebel ways and bide his time as Longshanks’ vassal.

But Edward, Longshanks’ heir, doesn’t trust the opportunistic Scotsman and vows to one day destroy him. While quietly plotting his rebellion, Robert is betrayed by one of his own and must flee Longshanks’ vengeance.

Aided by the unlikely brilliance of the soft-spoken young nobleman, James Douglas, Robert battles for his throne. Victory, though, is never certain and Robert soon learns that keeping his crown may mean giving up that which he loves most-his beloved Elizabeth.
