Second Chance Romance

I, Connie Manors, never thought I’d see them again.
Yet here they are, expecting me to pick up where we left off.
I’m one lucky lady!

Rascal has a wicked smile, and he can charm me into almost anything.
Josh is tall, dark and deliciously mysterious. Yum!
Luke’s broad-shoulders and melting glance is what dreams are made of.

We had a country band when we were teens.
I was the lead singer.
Nothing much came of it, but some of that was my fault.

A recent video of me singing again has inspired them to revitalize our band.
I refuse to join, until they give me one of those can’t-refuse offers.
I’d dated each of them separately during our teen years.
They have different plans for me now, and I’m all in.
We spend our days practicing original melodies and writing new lyrics.
While our nights smolder with the kind of fun that leaves me breathless.

Romantic Comedy

Lately, Jessa Myers has been batting a thousand in the dating game. No exaggeration, it’s brutal out there. But, she’s not giving up. Doesn’t matter how much she loves Elvis Pawsley and Marilyn Purroe, Jessa’s determined not to become the spinster town cat lady.

Only one problem: No guy has yet to live up to her childhood crush/teenage infatuation/adult obsession, Ethan Steele. The big, bad, brooding U.S. Marshal is yes, ridiculously hot, but also way too overprotective. It’s that way with everyone who knew her before her long-awaited heart transplant. They all get the same hyper-worried look when she so much as sneezes still. Sure, intense hulk-growl concern is swoony and all, but she wants a man to see her as more than that girl she once was.

So, if that means she needs to settle for someone not nearly as knee-wobbling as Ethan, then that’s just what she needs to do…

Amish Romance

She never wanted to marry. He hopes to make amends for past wrongs. Can love find a way to heal both of their hearts?

Sadie Schrock swore she would never marry. All of her other Amish friends could court and marry—she was content to manage the family business and eventually take it over when her parents are ready to retire. But all of that changes when a reckless driver kills both of her parents and seriously injures her younger sister. With mounting hospital bills adding to the pile of debt her parents left behind, Sadie is left with no choice: she must marry. And not just any man—the man who saw her at her weakest and walked away.

Aden knows what his brother did to Sadie years ago was inexcusable. And every day since that incident, Aden has lived with the guilt for not intervening sooner. When he is faced with the chance to protect Sadie once again, he can’t let her down—even if it means living with the scorn of the woman he loves for the rest of his life.

Naval Military History

Her crew called her the “Lady Lex” – see how her fierce battle turned the tide in the Allies’ favor.

In May 1942, the United States’ first first naval victory against the Japanese in the Coral Sea was marred by the loss of the aircraft carrier USS Lexington. Another carrier was nearly ready for launch when the news arrived, so the navy changed her name to Lexington, confusing the Japanese.

The men of the original “Lady Lex” loved their ship and fought hard to protect her. They were also seeking revenge for the losses sustained at Pearl Harbor. Crippling attacks by the Japanese left her on fire and dead in the water. A remarkable 90 percent of the crew made it off the burning decks before Lexington had to be abandoned. In all the annals of the Second World War, there is hardly a battle story more compelling.

Lexington’s legacy did not end with her demise, however. Although the battle was deemed a tactical success for the Japanese, it turned out to be a strategic loss: For the first time in the war, a Japanese invasion force was forced to retreat.

Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction

A detective hunts down a killer in a dystopian, overpopulated NYC in this classic science fiction novel that inspired the film Soylent Green.

Originally published in 1966, Make Room! Make Room! imagines a world at the end of the twentieth century where Earth is so overwhelmed by rampant population growth that it teeters on the edge of self-destruction. In New York City alone, thirty-five million people are squeezed into its packed boroughs, scrambling like rats for the world’s dwindling resources. The only food available is a product called soylent. And while the government tries to maintain order, the rich get richer and the poor stay underfoot.

Finding a killer in this broken world is one hell of a job. But that’s exactly what Det. Andy Rusch has been assigned to do. If he can stay alive long enough, he might just solve the biggest case he’s ever been on—unless humanity finally fulfills its promise and destroys itself first.
