Mailbox Mondays #8

Welcome back to Mailbox Mondays!  This is what I received this week:

From The Author:

Natural selection has become unnatural. Having dealt with the vicious murder of his wife, Edward Caine takes his rightful place as a One-Percenter, eliminating those not fit for the human race. He must fight his instinct to use his role for revenge; he is after those who live on only because of money and medicine. The weak-gened are not fit to breed, and it's the job of Edward and his brethren to see that they don't. But can he finish the job before his own mind betrays him? He is an agent of the Earth. He is a One-Percenter.

From Book Promotion Group:

Aldric & Anneliese is a tale of nation building, kings, knights, fair ladies, battles won and lost, triumph, betrayal, tragedy, revenge, redemption, and great loves It is a story for the ages. 
 To Sara and Jake, it sounded like a perfect spring break from their post-graduate university work: two weeks in the foothills of the Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan. Sara would study and photograph a rare mountain goat called the Markhor, the focus of her zoology dissertation. Fiance Jake, a graphic arts major, would photograph K2, the most dangerous mountain in the world. Their dream vacation begins to crumble, however, when Sara is nearly arrested as soon as they arrive at the Islamabad airport. Her crime? Wearing shorts and a halter top. Hours later, their dream turns into a full-fledged nightmare when their guide disappears and their camp is overrun by robed, hostile, and heavily-armed extremists. After murdering Jake, they gang rape Sara and then carry her off to a cold wet cell, in a hidden cave, in a nameless mountain valley. In less than forty-eight hours, a carefree university student is turned into a brutalized sex slave for the Taliban. 
Adorably uptight society girl Cassandra Whitney has life all figured out. That is until she meets movie star playboy, Jonny Duponi, her nightmare guy. Jonny keeps showing up at unexpected moments as he finds himself undeniably interested in Cassie. He allows himself to be drawn into her world. The dazzling star woos her friends and family until she's the only one left to win over. Will Cassie, a pedigreed member of New York Society, give in to temptation and allow some spontaneity to make its way into her very smoothly-run life? She ends up learning more about herself than she ever expected to as Jonny turns out to be the ideal teacher. But can Cassie turn her nightmare guy into her dream man? Stay tuned to see if the party boy can be satisfied forever with an audience of one.
That's what was in my mailbox,  what was in yours?
Until next time,

I haven't heard of one percenters but it sounds interesting.
