Four friends are inexplicably catapulted back in time—but to different places and different eras. In New France (Quebec) AD 1677, Lance and Bronwen, befriended by Inha and his beautiful sister, Wind-Song, learn of the legend of an ancient silver amulet buried on Cacouna Island by a Micmac well.

Jennifer and Arthur find themselves in ancient Sumer over five thousand years ago—and in trouble. Kidnapped by Sheik Faizi, they discover their only hope of escape is to steal his golden amulet. The two amulets are somehow connected, but how? Can any of the companions deliver them to the beautiful and powerful Lady Eve on the island of Eve Ilion? And if they succeed, will they be able to return home?

Now a NYT Bestseller!

Happily-ever-after only happens once in a lifetime, right? But what if Prince Charming runs for the hills at the first sign of trouble and leaves you to pick up the pieces.

Thinking her marriage was over, Tessa was more than a little shocked to fall into the arms of her husband (literally) at a party she’d planned through her new company, Decadent Events. When he asks her out for coffee, she assumes it’s to sign the divorce papers he’d seen.

What’s a girl to do when her heart still goes pitter-patter for a man who ran out on her six months after they made their forever vows but comes back asking for another chance?

~~

From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author Steena Holmes comes her new sweet romance series Decadent Events—where the recipe for romance contains chocolate, sweet love, and happily-ever-afters. Whether it's a flickering flame in a marriage that's about to be rekindled, or a secret love that is shared, you'll find it in the small town of Banff where Decadent Events is located.

 

All bakery-owner Lindsay Leeds wants for Christmas is for her former high-school crush Sheriff Keith “Bodey” Bodewell to quit playing games. The sheriff has been dancing around asking her out for months and Lindsay is tired of it. His “fake girlfriend” ploy was cute and it was sweet that he recruited her friends to find out what she likes, but enough is enough. She’s a busy woman and he needs to step up or he’s going to lose his shot.

How can a woman who runs two businesses be so clueless when it comes to managing her heart? Bodey has dropped more than enough hints that he’s interested, but Lindsay isn’t catching them. Just when the sheriff is running out of ideas on how he can convince her to be his for Christmas, Lindsay gives him a clue about what it will take for him to get a date. And the answer is pretty simple. At least, it was supposed to be. Christmas is days away and his plays keep failing on a spectacular level.

It’s going to take the jolly fat man to make this holiday romance happen.

Book 4 in the best-selling series, Forever Christmas. The western Washington town of Glenville is threatened with the possible loss of their 100 year old Christmas tree farm to an outside corporation. Four friends join together to keep the tradition alive and create new opportunities with the rebirth of the Forever Christmas tree farm.

 

Can life be beautiful after a terrible trauma?

Find out how Danny learned to overcome his loss.

A special bond is formed in the hospital between Danny ”" a mischievous, curious and very bright ten-year-old who has lost a leg and an arm ”" as well as his mother ”" in a terrorist bombing ”" and Autumn, a young journalist sent to interview him before his tenth operation.

Autumn wants to publish Danny's story because she believes he is a hero, but Danny says he isn't a hero at all; he was simply sitting in a restaurant waiting for his food when the terrorist came in and blew herself up. During their conversation, Autumn tells Danny about her son and her life as a single mother. He misses his own mother, and harbors a suspicion that the journalist keeps coming to see him because she is interested in his newly widowed father.

??? A maturity process story

Autumn thinks that Danny should have the tenth operation, which would basically be plastic surgery to remove the shrapnel from his face and minimize the scarring. He does not want to forget: he would rather have a scarred face that will always remind him of his mother and all that he lost. And it would also be a reminder of the reality of life in Israel, a reality in which innocent children pay the price. During the difficult days preceding the operation, still tormented by indecision and struggling against the pain, Danny undergoes a maturity process that will prepare him for his release from the hospital. He learns not to be jealous of his sister, who survived the bombing with only a few scratches. He learns not to be afraid of the Arab nurse who wants to give him an injection. He develops a new and different sense of humor and comes to realize that despite his grief and loss, life goes on and can be beautiful. He discovers that he can enjoy life if he only reaches out for it.

??? A story about injury and recovery

The book is about the reality of living in Israel. About a terrorist bombing, and how it affects one little boy and his family. It's heart-wrenching, but hard to put down.

She was called Rachav ... today we know
her as Rahab. Legend shrouds her in controversy. Some say harlot, others say
innkeeper. Did Jericho fall in spite of her or because of her? What really
happened inside the walls?


In the fourteenth century BC, Jericho
is crown jewel of the Jordan Valley, sleek and magnificent from the wealth of
caravan tariffs and offerings to the Queen of the Night. When Rachav stumbles
upon the unspeakable truth about the goddess's temple rites, the Queen of the
Night's unearthly forces drive Rachav out of the kingdom into the deadly
Wasteland.


Salma, a prince of Judah, finds Rachav
unconscious and bears her home where a healer works to restore her health and
memory. But when the confederation of tribes come under attack, Rachav's
foreign presence sows distrust among the families, and Salma's growing
attraction may not be enough to insulate her from the fallout.


War refugees seeking asylum among the
tribes ignite Rachav's memories, and she secretly embarks on the dangerous road
back to Jericho. Having seen the ancient power that vanquished the nomad's
enemies, Rachav is no longer sure who poses the greatest threat: the Queen of
the Night within the city walls or Salma's tribes massing east of the Jordan.

Weaving
historical fact with intriguing answers to what might have been, Moonfall
strips away millennia of propaganda and rumors to reveal the heart of a

There are moments in our lives when we meet someone for the first time, and know we are changed forever. But is a soul connection a strong enough reason to turn your back on everything standing in your way?
Jessie and Jeremy are two teens in the early 1980s who, by all standards, fall into young love. What should only be a crush turns into something stronger and deeper, causing them to question every decision in their adolescent lives. When Jeremy has to go away to college, what will become of him and Jessie? Will he jeopardize his future to stay with her?
Matthew is a present-day teacher engaged to his college girlfriend. Long before he proposed to Mel, he began to question whether he was making the right decision...but he never imagined walking away until the day that Emily entered his life.
These four lives beautifully intertwine in a story that will leave you believing true love can overcome any obstacle

 

"The Bear Who Could Fly" is a special tale about a bear cub, Kitchi, who is told that he might not wake up if he goes into hibernation for weeks. Nukpana, the evil weasel, also tells Kitchi that he will miss out on so much fun during the winter. But bears must hibernate! Kitchi meets the great elk, Tyee, who tells him that if he does fall asleep he will have a special dream about flying, and once he wakes up from this dream he will be braver than even the strongest animals in the forest.

Through having the dream, Kitchi ultimately faces his fear and afterwards faces Nukpana, telling him to leave the young ones in the forest alone and never tell horrid stories again.

The book has been written for children aged 4 to 8 years. Filled with dream-inspiring illustrations, children will easily relate to the characters. The purpose of the story is to help children to learn that sleep time is for dreaming, and that their dreams can make them stronger. But, of course, in order to dream they must first fall asleep without worrying what they will miss out on. The 'flying' dream should excite any child, and the story will therefore spur them to close their eyes at bedtime and get ready to soar.

 

In real life, she’s given up on the fairytale ending...

After having her heart broken twice, Alicia Dayne has sworn off men, decided to concentrate on her career, and is delighted to win a lucrative contract to make a commercial for Highborn Mattresses.

She could make the most awesome fairytale commercial ever—except for Jonas Highborn, who isn’t exactly thrilled with her Princess and the Pea ideas, and really doesn’t want a prince in tights representing his company.


Though he’s trying to keep his grieving mother happy by letting her have charge of the commercial shoot, and though Alicia’s trying to keep in mind that this annoying guy is her boss for the moment, they can’t seem to keep from clashing.


Throw in an overly-handsome prince, a matchmaking mama, and a stunning rose garden, and maybe, just maybe, Alicia can be convinced they have a chance at something real.

Because while she might not be a real princess, sometimes an ordinary girl’s got to take a chance, even when it seems too good to be true.

When did Happily Ever After become so complicated?

 

They say time heals all wounds.
Sometimes it doesn't.

Her co-workers think she's intriguing.

Her neighbors think she's crazy.

She thinks she's hopeless.

Then she meets Joe.

CHARLOTTE Hubbard dreams about falling in love on a daily basis, but she’s long rejected the idea that someone would ever be interested in an overweight, unappealing girl like her; an opinion that is also shared by her way more popular and attractive sister who seems to enjoy pointing out Charlotte's flaws as much as possible.

AND . . .

Then there's MILES Fiester, who thinks that making the basketball team is as impossible as getting the girl he’s liked since grade school to notice him. He’d have more luck getting his deadbeat dad to visit him for a day.

But, in the first few weeks of high school, Charlotte and Miles come to discover that life is unpredictable, love happens when you least expect it, and there’s always a first for everything.

Law of Moses

 

The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon

 

If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know its coming, and it will hurt. But youll be able to prepare.

 

Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.

 

It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.

 

And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn’t stay away.

 

And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all…a love story.
