New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Crusie teams up with USA Today bestselling author Bob Mayer to write a sizzling, high-octane romantic adventure about a straight-talking woman and a straight-shooting man... Lucy Armstrong is a director of television commercials who's just been recruited to finish a four-day action movie shoot. But she arrives on the set to discover that the directing staff has quit, the make-up artist is suicidal, the stars are egomaniacs, the stunt director is her ex-husband, and the lead actor has just acquired as an advisor a Green Beret who has the aggravating habit of always being right. Green Beret Captain JT Wilder had thought that hiring on as a military consultant for a movie star was a good deal: easy money and easier starlets. Instead he has to babysit a bumbling comedian, dodge low-flying helicopters, and resist his attraction to a director who bears a distracting resemblance to Wonder Woman. Then the CIA calls and he realizes that somebody is taking "shooting a movie" much too literally. Full of suspense and humor, non-stop action and fast-paced dialogue, Don't Look Down is the perfect blend of male and female, adventure and romance, Mayer and Crusie.

Rowe, Miller, and Hubbard, are prisoners from an ancient war. As far as their government is concerned, they are missing in action. As far as their families are concerned, they are dead. Since their capture they have been used as slave labor by their captors, but now political changes, and their deteriorating physical condition mean that they face imminent death. But then a chance of escape presents itself... About 31000 words. More than a year before, and far far away, and old man had put the muzzle of a shotgun to his throat and gone to push the trigger. This novel tells their amazing story. (Author's Note: Even though some years have passed since these events took place, I have had, in the interests of international relations, public face, personal feelings and, indeed, diplomacy, to leave some elements of this story deliberately vague. I have also had to include small amounts of disinformation. However, intelligent readers will have no difficulty in filling in the gaps, as it were, and picturing, indeed, the whole story. My main hope is that this book will prove a fitting epitaph to Al Eckman. I also hope that sometime in the future, Hollywood will do its duty and produce a fitting tribute to this incredible man. Where are you Mister Spielberg?)

In the Science Fiction Thriller Cripple-Mode:Hot Electric Give me liberty or give me death wasn't Travis Lucia Hamilton-McQueen's foremost declaration. She'd returned from near death and wasn't keen on revisiting; she just wanted her life back. Granddaughter of a mass murderer; daughter of a convict; suspected terrorist with confused memories. No not that life, nor the alternate. A soulless clone with limited freedom and an amnesiac ward of Greater Terran Galactic Properties, with a possible Dissociative fugue identity; consigned to convalesce aboard Medical Space Station Perl. Mix in a rogue General with a handful of assassins and her life slips from surreal to something straight out of science fiction and fantasy.
