Power s Play Book Excerpt:

Bust the Kingdom's scariest crime boss? There has to be an easier way for a Fool to win love! A year after the events of Fool's Proof, Malfred Murd is no longer a Fool, royal or otherwise. He’s a newly minted nobleman— who can’t help plunging back into his own special brew of trouble. This time he’s taken on a task that’s outrageous even for him: becoming an undercover officer, out to bust the biggest crime boss in a vast and decadent city. Will it win him the attention of a certain maddeningly inaccessible Lady... or get him packed at the bottom of a barrel? Follow Fred, Corvinalias, the other characters we met in “Fool’s Proof”— and a dazzling collection of new ones— on a journey through a world blending equal parts comedy, crime novel and adventure: heroic, horrific and hilarious. "★★★★★" "The ending is surprisingly deep and leaves the reader wanting even more." -Reedsy Discovery A character-driven romp through a world of magic, fantastic creatures, and subterfuge....Sandor's prose shines brightest when portraying story and character through dialogue, and crafting a beautiful, rich world while effortlessly switching between tense conversations rife with undertone and subtlety and more lighthearted, comical scenes that build character and entertain. - The BookLife Prize Offers many surprises to delight literary fantasy readers looking for far more than an adventure tale....There's simply not enough literary humor in the fantasy genre; but Eva Sandor fills this gap with another adventure story that should be read closely, so as not to miss any of the tongue-in-cheek humor (both overt and subtle) that graces its characters and lines.-Diane Donovan, Bookwatch Read the book and loved it. Though much darker than the first novel, I actually enjoyed it more...There is still the wit and charm in bucket loads, with added emotion, mystery and intrigue. -John Derek, Netgalley It does point firmly into the next book... which I'm now looking forward to :-) -Jim Webster, author of the Tallis Steelyard series The writing is intelligent, but not out of reach. - Advance reader Mike Z. A wonderful collection of characters and the use of language is brilliant. -Advance reader Namoi L. Love, action, drama and best of all...you get lost in Eva's world! This is number 2 in the series and it lives up to all the reviews so far. I loved it so much I couldn't put it down! -Advance reader Rikki M. Comical, magical, witty, and even dark...a fast paced journey leaving you yearning for more each chapter and then the next in the series. Great development of characters with an intense strong female protagonist. -Advance reader Robert A. You don't realize how four different stories turn into one entwined story until you do notice it! The transitions are seamless. -Advance reader Gabriella B.

Still recovering from her last disastrous break-up, she was concentrating on her career. She wasn’t interested in taking chances with her heart.

Then a group of local hunters crash the opening-night festivities.

Power Play Book Excerpt:

When the Rogers Place arena opened in downtown Edmonton in September 2016, no amount of buzz could drown out the rumours of manipulation, secret deals, and corporate greed undergirding the project. Working with documentary evidence and original interviews, the authors present an absorbing account of the machinations that got the arena and the adjacent Ice District built, with a price tag of more than $600 million. The arena deal, they argue, established a costly public financing precedent that people across North America should watch closely, as many cities consider building sports facilities for professional teams or international competitions. Their analysis brings clarity and nuance to a case shrouded in secrecy and understood by few besides political and business insiders. Power Play tells a dramatic story about clashing priorities where sports, money, and municipal power meet.

Power Play Book Excerpt:

Politics is a mean spirited business. Power Play allows the reader to be in the room where this character driven novel is graphically experienced. History repeats itself. Questionable Police tactics didn't begin in 2014. The awareness and threats caused by aggressive police actions have recently changed but they’re not without precedent. A City Manager has the inside story. Read Power Play, a story set in the 1970’s when blind trust was too often the case. Deceit, revenge, militaristic police, affected legal system and gay tragedy. The end of the Hoover era, amidst the death throes of the Nixon debacle. The author has captured an era, depicting a battle for the soul of the Republic, at the local level. Young, handsome, charming Collier Winthrop is enticed by a crusty old Political Boss, Al Caso, to seek Public Office. Collie soon faces an unscrupulous adversary practiced in deceit; manipulated state investigative agencies and a contaminated police department. Events unfold that uncover a sordid police mentality, unveil the civil rights of the Flower Children violated, ruin reputations and threaten the very lives of Collie's confederates. How can Collie unravel plots unseen and unimaginable, to survive even the earliest months of his political enterprise. The work portrays the depth and conflict of personalities. Politics is a business of expediency. Otherwise decent people justify immoral behavior in defense of careers.

Once Upon a Power Play Book Excerpt:

Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is his recovery. But after sharing a near death experience with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed—even if it means playing dirty. Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She’s kissed her share of frogs and what’s it gotten her? Dumped by text—again. The last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who’s sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention. Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he’s going to lose. Each book in the Risky Business series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

The Edmonton Oilers have been one of the most successful and exciting hockey teams during the last twenty years. Led in their glory days by Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffey, Jari Kurri, Glenn Anderson, and Grant Fuhr, it is not surprising that the Oilers won five Stanley Cups in seven years.

The first part details each of the Oilers’ seasons and provides complete regular and postseason scoring and goal-tending statistics for each season. The second part presents an alphabetical listing of every player to wear an Oilers uniform and his statistics while playing for the team. There are also sections on the Oilers’ seven years in the World Hockey Association before joining the NHL, team transactions, drafts, player awards, team milestones and records, summaries of all five of the Stanley Cup–winning games, and the Sky Reach Center, home of the Oilers.

Today Boudreau coaches superstar Alexander Ovechkin and a young Washington club poised to become an elite NHL team vying for the Stanley Cup.

Hockey fans know there s only one Boudreau."
