Blurb for Privileged, book 1 in the American Prince series by J.M. Downey:

Sometimes Prince Charming has a dark side.

Small-town girl Katie Morris knew that attending an all-girls college near Yale University, she might meet the sons and daughters of the nation’s leaders. But she never imagined one such son would strive to capture her heart with his promises of a happily-ever-after. However, a dark nature lurks inside her prince, which clashes with his charm. Will Katie be able to hang on to her fairy tale when the man she loves turns into the man she fears?

Since the moment of William Wilkerson’s birth, he had been groomed to take his father’s place in ruling the nation behind the scenes, deciding what laws get passed and who governs. But ruling requires the ability to control, manipulate, and the more William becomes the man his father desires of him, the more he finds himself turning into what he vowed never to be: a man who is a threat to the young woman he loves.

When a deal with terrorists orchestrated by his father is revealed, his family’s power is threatened, forcing William to make a choice: Sacrifice the young woman he can’t live without, or let everything his father has built, collapse.

What shall he choose?

Enjoy an inspirational Christian fiction novel full of political intrigue and suspense.

MiracleDrug_R2Bio of Richard L. Mabry, M.D.:

Richard Mabry is a retired physician, author of “medical suspense with heart.” His novels have been a semifinalist for International Thriller Writers’ debut novel, finalists for the ACFW Carol Award, Inspirational Reader’s Choice, and Romantic Times’ Reader’s Choice Award, as well as winner of the Selah Award. Miracle Drug is his ninth published novel.

Blurb for Miracle Drug by Richard L. Mabry, M.D.:

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovered why—the patients had another infection, one that was universally fatal. The only chance for their survival was treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.

The stakes were high because the patients were the former President of the United States and a nurse with whom Josh was falling in love. The situation was bad and getting worse by the minute. Overcoming all this would take more than a miracle drug—it would take a miracle.
