“Should I ever pen my memoirs, I shall call them How to Befuddle the French with a Bucket of Slops.” – Edmund, Baron Ridlington, 1814
Inheriting the baronetcy is a burden Captain Edmund Holbury could well have done without. But he has no choice other than to say farewell to the sea and accept the title of Baron Ridlington—which includes the almost-ruined estate, and his five resident siblings. He is going to need some help, and soon.
It comes in the unexpected form of a nasty crack on the head, a ministering hand and a woman who has hidden herself away in the countryside. Rosaline Henry finds the unconscious Baron strangely appealing, and when he makes an unexpected but practical suggestion – she agrees, as much for him as for herself.
Thus begins a voyage of discovery which takes them to new heights of familial creativity, private passion and risky adventure.

The history of Guinness, one of the world’s most famous brands, reveals the noble heights and generosity of a great family and an innovative business.
It began in Ireland in the mid 1700s. The water in Ireland, indeed throughout Europe, was famously undrinkable, and the gin and whiskey that took its place devastated civil society. It was a disease ridden, starvation-plagued, alcoholic age, and Christians like Arthur Guinness—as well as monks and even evangelical churches—brewed beer that provided a healthier alternative to the poisonous waters and liquors of the times. This is where the Guinness tale began. Now, 250 years and over 150 countries later, Guinness is a global brand, one of the most consumed beverages in the world.
Relationships are hard aren’t they…but what if they were never intended to be this difficult? In True Love Dates, Professional Counselor Debra Fileta encourages singles not to “kiss dating goodbye” but instead, offers a new approach to dating by encouraging readers to do relationships in a way that is psychologically sound, emotionally healthy, and rooted in faith.
What it comes down to is that healthy people make for healthy relationships. We often complicate that by entering relationships with our past baggage and preconceived ideas of what it means to find “the one”. But the good news is that it is possible to find love in a way that honors both God and the opposite sex.
When Rachel wakes up in a strange room, the morning after a neighbour’s party, she has no memory of what happened the night before. Why did her husband leave her alone at the party? Did they row?

Little by little, Rachel pieces together the devastating events that took place in a friend’s house, at a party where she should have been safe. Everyone remembers what happened that night differently, and everyone has something to hide. But someone knows the truth about what happened to Rachel. And she’s determined to find them.
She glanced at her phone again. There were appeals from the girls, from her colleagues, a text from Steve reading with uncharacteristic imperiousness, ‘Call me.’ She couldn’t. She couldn’t call anyone . . . She leaned forward, gripping the edge of the bench, and stared at the ground. God, she thought, am I losing my mind? Is this what happens when you lose your job?
The day Stacey Grant loses her job feels like the last day of her life. Or at least, the only life she’d ever known. For who was she if not a City high-flyer, Senior Partner at one of the top private equity firms in London?
