After six years of focusing on her career, Natalie Armstrong craves the peace and tranquility that only Sapphire Bay can give her. But returning to her grandparents' cottage isn't as easy as she imagined. No one told her about her houseguest or the unexpected changes in the small town she calls home.
Gabe Lanigan is a former NYPD detective. His new career as a bestselling crime writer has brought him everything he didn't want--fame, fortune, and a deep distrust of strangers. When Natalie arrives in Sapphire Bay, their unlikely friendship sparks into something he never expected. But he needs to be careful. The real reason he left New York City is closing in fast and Natalie is standing in his way.

What good is a witch with no magic?
I’m Lexi Balefire and I wear a lot of hats, but none of them are tall and pointy. I spend half my time making love matches that last forever, and the other half trying to keep my faerie godmothers from turning each other into toads. Or worse.
I come from a long line of witches, some of them wicked, but none of that will matter if my magic doesn't awaken before midnight on my next birthday. If I miss that deadline, I'll never be a true witch.
If my mother and grandmother hadn't used their magic to kill each other, one of them might have been able to give me the keys to the mystery and I'd be one step closer to claiming my Fate Weaver heritage.
Now, I guess I'll have to figure it out on my own.

Until the night her engagement-party ends in utter disaster, and Ella runs for the forest — and straight into the powerful arms of a hulking, deadly orc.
And it’s not just any orc. It’s Natt. The orc Ella made a secret, foolish pledge to, many years past…

With her hunger.
Ella knows she should run, even if this deadly enemy was once a friend. Even if his scent drags up a dark, forbidden longing. Even if his kisses are the sweetest, filthiest thing she’s ever tasted in her life…
But will Ella truly risk her perfect future, for an orc? Will she face the bitter truths of the past, and brave the terrifying Orc Mountain, before more war rises to destroy them all?

If you’re going to read a book about being an overcomer, you should probably ask, “What has this author managed to overcome?” In the case of Laura Luna, the answer is: the impossible.
With a childhood marred by sexual abuse and family dysfunction, Laura dropped out of school in ninth grade. She had three children before the age of 19. She then broke her neck in seven places and was told she might never walk again; instead, she walked out of the hospital three days later.
Yet through it all, she stood on the promises of God and persevered against all odds. Her message is simple, “If God did it for me, He will do it for you, too!” But she doesn’t stop with platitudes and personal growth tips. She shares the simple yet effective strategies she’s found to strengthen herself for the fight...and how to live a well balanced Christian life.
This exceptionally well-written book highlights the compelling story of King Saul’s concubine, Rizpah, who happens to be my personal hero. She’s a shining example of Christian confidence for women. Rizpah was absolutely determined to pass on a spiritual inheritance to her children, even if it meant standing in the desert for six months, fighting off wild animals and birds of prey. In the end, God used her determination to shift the spiritual atmosphere over an entire nation.
Whatever is coming against you, Stand gives you the courage to fight and keep on fighting. And in the words of the Apostle Paul, “and having done everything, to stand.”
God is using Laura to spearhead a movement of women who are determined to stand confident in their calling for the sake of the next generation. This is a message I’m passionate about and I’m excited to see what God will do with this arising army of women warriors!

Miss Emma Harlow hasn’t earned the reputation as a hoyden for nothing.
So when the Duke of Trent discovers her in his conservatory stealing one of his orchids, he’s isn’t surprised—charmed, delighted and puzzled, yes, but not surprised. It is Emma who is amazed. She has naturally concluded that the man reading in the conservatory must be the country cousin (who else in London would actually read?) and is quite vexed to discover that he is the Duke of Trent himself—imagine, stealing the duke’s prize Rhyncholaelia digbyana under his very nose!
But her vexation doesn’t last long.
For Emma is a practical young lady with a mission: to end her dear sister Lavinia’s engagement to the villainous (and dreadfully dull!) Sir Waldo Windbourne, and she thinks that the famous libertine is just the man for the job. If he would only seduce her sister away from Sir Waldo…. Well, not seduce exactly, but flirt mercilessly and engage her interest. Perhaps then Lavinia would jilt the baron. The Duke of Trent is resistant, of course.
Despite his reputation, he does not toy with the affections of innocents. And besides, it’s not her sister he longs to seduce.
