The most dangerous secrets are the ones that kill.

When a surprising mental breakdown draws too much attention from a secret government group call the Order, 17-year-old Dakota discovers that her so-called boring life isn’t so boring after all. Between the lies, secrets and assassins out to kill her family, Dakota discovers there’s more to paranormal activity than ghosts and cheap mind tricks. Now she must uncover the truth before a new breed of terrorism takes everything away – including her life.

 

You never forget your first love...

With her eye for design and her cut-glass accent, no-one would guess Beth Forrest’s impoverished background. It’s all throw pillows, china patterns, and upper class brides as she manages the Wedding Registry at Pettett & Mayfield, the stately maiden aunt of London department stores. It’s not quite her dream job, but each bride she helps to select beautiful and oh-so-expensive items for their gift list brings her one step closer to buying a little home of her own, and financing the education she longs for.

When physics professor James Tetherton-Hart, brilliant in his research lab but awkward and disorganised in everyday life, comes to the store in desperate need of both a gift and a partner for a wedding that evening and recognises her, all her careful plans and meticulous checklists are turned upside down.

Now her first love is back, determined to make her his partner for life, not just the evening. But unless Beth can let go of the mistaken beliefs that separated them in the past, and appreciate the depth and breadth of God’s love for us all, her only gift from the wedding will be another heartbreak.

On a bitter December day in 1785, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of master blacksmith Liege Lee in York, Pennsylvania. Just months from becoming a master blacksmith himself, Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship and move west. But Liege soon discovers that Silas is a prodigious worker and craftsman and endeavors to keep him in York. Silas becomes interested in both of Liege's daughters, the gentle and faith-filled Eden and the clever and high-spirited Elspeth. When he chooses one, will the other's jealousy destroy their love?

In this sweeping family saga set in western Pennsylvania, one man's choices in love and work, in friends and enemies, set the stage for generations to come. Love's Reckoning is the first entry in The Ballantyne Legacy, a rich, multi-layered historical quartet from talented writer Laura Frantz, beginning in the late 1700s and following the Ballantyne family through the end of the Civil War.

 

Every gift has consequences. . .

Tasmyn Vaughn didn't expect much when her dad's job moved them to a small town in Florida; it was just another new school. But King is a town founded by magic and steeped in mystery, and soon Tasmyn's ability to hear others' thoughts is the least of her worries.

There's Ms. Lacusta, the science teacher who just might be teaching more than chemistry, and then there's Nell Massler, the ultimate mean girl whose extracurricular activities include blood rituals. And she wants Tasmyn's blood next.

Entangled in a web of first love, quirky and secretive townsfolk, magic and blood spells, she discovers the town's secrets aren't just bizarre, they're deadly.

??? Editorial Reviews

"This book was total awesomesauce! I loved the story...and while mind reading and witches have been done a lot in YA, this book is still sort of unique, to me at least, because i never read them together before." -- Bemused Bookworm "Sweetswan"

"In the sea of so-so free books, it's always nice to come across a gem like Fearless. I loved the story, loved the main characters, loved the secondary characters, including all the parents. I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author and will go buy the next one now." --Dr. Debra

"This book had a lot of things that I love all jammed into one: the fierce protectiveness and possessiveness of a werewolf book. . .the evil nemesis without the POV that I hate, and the YA romance that has butterflies in my stomach for them. So much love for this book -- what a great surprise!" --Carrie Williams

Melinda and Rob MacCreadie have been married for nearly thirty years, but she is the worst wife for a hard-working Montana rancher and she knows it.

With their five children grown and finding love, Melinda is daunted by the idea of accepting newcomers into the family. She and Rob still hold a secret that dates from before the birth of their triplets all those years ago.

Rob is such a fine man, strong and good-looking and endlessly patient. He’s wise, too, but is he right to insist that it’s time to tell people what happened? Does he really understand how she feels?

 

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormons") sing with ringing conviction the words, "There's surely somewhere a lowly place in earth's harvest fields so wide, where I may labor through life's short day for Jesus the Crucified." In this collection of essays and stories about missionary work and miracles in lowly places, father and son coauthors Francis M. Gibbons and Daniel Bay Gibbons have captured the essence of serving in "the nethermost part of the vineyard." They draw upon their personal experiences of serving for over a dozen years in missionary and leadership callings in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, as well as from the treasure trove of remarkable missionary experiences in Mormon Church history.

 


Two young lovers decide to take a mini-break to their secluded cabin in the woods. With no stress and no one around for miles, they look forward to the peace that only their idyllic hideaway in the wilderness can offer. But their perfect getaway soon turns nightmarish, when a man with an unyielding appetite for violence discovers the couple’s cozy retreat. Primed for terror, he descends on their peaceful environment, preying on the couple and creating an atmosphere of panic - and survival. The chilling cat and mouse game that unfolds gives new meaning to the phrase running scared and will make you think twice about renting that cabin in the seemingly tranquil woods.

A young couple with a hideaway in the forest gets stalked by a violent man.

- Amazon reviewer

"I've read a few books marketed for middle-grades or younger this year and I have to say that this is hands down the best suited for those ages. It has a great plot, some truly well-rounded characters (with more depth than what I find in most adult novels these days) and a climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Not only was this book highly entertaining but there are some great messages in it."- LitChick Hit List

Years ago, Ella Rhodes looked across a crowded cafe and saw the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. She left her number, but he never called. Wondering if he somehow missed the note on the back of the receipt, she spent her twenties waiting for this man to walk into her life again. After all this time, will Ella finally discover “the one” she’s been waiting for? Or, after being sent on various blind dates, will she give her heart to someone else?

Meanwhile, Matthew Ryan breaks up with his long-time girlfriend. Searching his heart he wonders if there is really a “one” for every person, or if there is simply a good, better, and best. Where does Lydia, the girl who would do anything for him, fit into the story of his life? Confused, Matthew sets out to explore his options and find the love he’s been looking for his entire life. Will he find love before it’s too late or will he lose everything?

Between a shrewd old rancher, a cantankerous rodeo horse and a stud bull called Trouble, Payton and Cordell have no chance to lead separate lives. No matter how much their futures may depend upon them doing so.

After her father kicked her off the family farm because she was pregnant, seventeen-year-old Libby Bateson swore she’d never go back.

Going home isn’t easy. Libby finds the farmhouse neglected and filthy. Her father is a cantankerous hermit who won’t speak to her. Even Gibson Browning, the farmer next door whom she’d once had a crush on, is making her life complicated.

Gibson’s wife died two years ago and now he’s a single parent too—raising a daughter the same age as Nicole. The hard working, good looking Gibson is a loyal friend and a loving father. Libby knows she could easily fall for him—which would be a mistake.

Because Libby can’t stay in Chatsworth for long. Not without risking exposure of the secret that could ruin her daughter’s life. (secret baby, series romance, domestic life, family life)
