At least she used to. Somewhere between law school and real life, she lost her sparkle. Now she wears boring business suits to boring dates in her boring life.
The last time Anna remembers feeling that sizzle was with the one man who’s all cayenne and passion: Max Corazao, the one who got away.
Except Max still sees Anna as a woman full of spice. And Anna intends to do whatever she can to be that woman again—with his (unknowing) help…

And, one person’s ultimate decision leaves everyone lost and devastated.
It is not an exaggeration to say that this book could either save you from bankruptcy or make you a LOT of money.
If you think that you might want to someday own a Bed and Breakfast or a Country Inn, this book is essential reading. Most innkeeping “how-to” books go to great lengths to outline the myriad of OPTIONS you will encounter, but fall short when it comes time to give OPINIONS on what you should do.
In The Bread is in The Bed, you’ll get crucial real world guidance on how to choose your property, and learn where to laser focus your energy to make money.
The unexpected bonus is this sound business information is delivered as an extraordinarily entertaining and amusing romp through Glen and Ann Stanford’s fifteen innkeeping years at the Salt Ash Inn in Plymouth, Vermont.
It is a comical behind-the-scenes look at a “Damn Quaint” country inn as these veteran innkeepers skip the toilet paper folding advice and tell you how to make money with a Bed and Breakfast.

Once upon a time, a historical romance author created a family . . .
But not just any family. Eight brothers and sisters, assorted in-laws, sons and daughters, nieces and nephews (not to mention an overweight corgi) plus an irrepressible matriarch who’s a match for any of them . . . These are the Bridgertons: less a family than a force of nature. Through eight bestselling novels, readers laughed, cried, and fell in love. But they wanted more.
And so the readers asked the author . . .
What happens next? Does Simon ever read his father’s letters? Do Francesca and Michael become parents? Who would win in a Pall Mall grudge match?
“The drawings aren’t very good, Mama.”
—Crappy Boy, age 5
Of course you love being a parent. But sometimes, it just sucks. I know. I’m Amber Dusick and I started my blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures because I needed a place to vent about the funny (and frustrating) day-to-day things that happened to me as a parent. Turns out, poop is hilarious! At least when you’re not the one wiping it up.
This book won’t make your frustrating moments any less crappy. But these stories about my Crappy Baby, Crappy Boy and my husband, Crappy Papa, will hopefully make you laugh. Because you’re not alone. And sometimes the crappiest moments make the best memories. Parenting is wonderful! And also, well, you know.
The Lazy Gourmet is for anyone who dreams of dazzling guests with fabulous home-cooked fare, but fears that such a feat would require Thomas Keller’s talent, Martha Stewart’s ingenuity, Gandhi’s patience, and Charles Manson’s free time. The goal of The Lazy Gourmet is to conquer the misguided belief that preparing an elegant meal requires spending hours?or days?in the kitchen.

In this world, Anne Kelley sticks out like a… well, like an under-employed, horribly insecure 260 pound woman might stick out in the year 2071. She grits her teeth a lot; she averts her eyes a lot.
Then one night Anne makes a discovery: it’s the end of the world. Not the mushroom cloud end, not the machines rise to judge their makers end… the hungry, swarming apocalypse end. Yeah… that one… well, sort of.
Now five damaged strangers must piece together the mystery and find the courage to stand together against an ancient evil. Now they must become the heroes the world needs before the darkness falls forever.
Time is not money. Time is more important than money.
Today’s customers are overwhelmed, overworked, and overstressed, and it seems that everyone–from CEOs to soccer moms–is short on time and inundated with information. As a result, despite the availability of 24/7 commerce and countless ways of engaging people in our multiscreen (mobile, TV, and PC) economy, companies find it more difficult than ever to claim even a fraction of the 1,440 minutes in their customers’ precious 24 hours.
In The 24-Hour Customer, Adrian C. Ott, CEO of a successful Silicon Valley consultancy, argues that companies need to strategically harness the ebbs and flows of customer time and attention in order to win in today’s competitive landscape. She explores the economics of time and attention, including why customers will devote hours addicted to social networks, yet will say “I have no time!” to other offerings.
