Books Description:

Drawing upon a wealth of previously untranslated documents, Broken Wings tells how a European nation built an entire air force in secret. Carved up and banned from having a military air service after World War I, Hungary became determined to rearm itself. In the early 1920s, Allied inspectors were evaded and obstructed at every turn; great efforts were made to stockpile equipment from the Great War; and the Hungarian government promoted the development of commercial aviation, partly as a front for military flight operations. The clandestine rearmament program could not depend on manufacturing at home but instead secretly accepted whichever planes Italy and Germany would sell them. During the late 1930s, the Hungarian air force went from operating as a secret branch of the army to an independent modernizing force in its own right. Hungarian air power played a great role in a victorious border skirmish with Slovakia in 1939. The cost of the reemergence of the Hungarian air force, however, was heavy: growing Nazi influence over the country, as Germany increasingly supplied aircraft and training. Inevitably, Hungary entered the Second World War on the side of the Axis in 1941, with its air force soon dwindling in independence and effectively becoming a Luftwaffe auxiliary force. Called back home to defend Hungary from incessant Allied bombings, the Hungarian air force ended the Second World War much as they had the Firstsalvaging aircraft parts from downed invaders and fighting until they no longer had airfields from which to operate.

And she offers up a deal crazier than anything I could have dreamed up. She wants me to take her, again and again, until she gets what she wants… A baby in her belly.

But there’s no man in my life up to the task. I’m alone and desperate. That’s where the biker comes in. He struts into the bar with an infectious cocky swagger. I saw him being wheeled into the hospital just hours ago, with a bullet in his chest… How is he even alive? And yet, here he is.

So when they discover who I am and what’s inside me, they come after us with deadly force and fury. I have to trust the man who got me pregnant. Because if he can’t protect us, no one can.

Books Description:

As Namibia struggles to rebuild the country with the first elected government, predators circle as they always do. They use this time as an opportunity to set up business at all cost; greed drives the day-to-day existence, and ruthless business people use corrupt officials to further business ventures. Marie Louw is a girl with broken wings after she is violently attacked by four predators. She runs to her high school sweetheart; he knows exactly how to handle this situation. In Broken Wings, author Chris Norris writes a fast-paced story based on the life of Eben Basson, his valued friend, Lucas, and the love of his life, Marie Louw. The story is based on the experiences and dreams of two young lovers and how Africa shaped their lives. Eben and Marie’s lives are cemented by their friendship from a very young age and their dream to explore Africa with their friend, Lucas. They uncover a deadly ring in the underbelly of animal fighting and poaching, and now they have to fight for their lives. From police corruption to international greed, this is a game where only the fittest will survive. Tammy Blake, the daughter of Mandy and Vince Blake, a wealthy business man, befriends Marie and Eben to uncover and expose this blood sport. She finds herself in the middle of an explosive situation with deadly consequences. This is Africa where life is cheap and most people take what they need at gunpoint, a lesson Tammy will have to learn in order to survive. The outcome is by no means certain for the happy couple that set out to discover Africa and rekindle their love for one another.
