Opposites attract and this alpha and omega make the chemistry explode…<br /> <br />Feisty and fierce, Sam Hemingway is nothing like a typical omega. As the mayor’s son, he was raised to be strong, rugged, and in control. He knows exactly what he wants—and he doesn’t want the life his family has hand-picked for him. Loving and caring for horses in the country stables is all he needs in life.<br /> <br />But when his mother meddles and throws a real stable hand in to take control, Sam has no idea how quickly his life is going to change. <br /> <br />Charming and sexy Colton Sharp knows his way around a stable. And this alpha quickly works way into Sam’s heart. As the two grow closer and assume their roles, Colton’s true identity threatens everything they’ve built. Now, with everything on the line, will Sam and Colton discover the true meaning of family and love? <br /> <br />In this 50,000 word gay romance novel, two men struggle with their place in society as their families try to force them to fit a certain mold. But after they find each other, they discover a new strength—the strength of love. With explicit scenes and sexy “rolls in the hay,” these two stable boys fight the secrets that try to destroy them. And when one man learns that he’s pregnant, they learn to love deeper and stronger than they ever have before.

The state’s case against Chuck Delgado is foundering as things heat up and turn deadly in Westbury. Frank Haynes and Loretta Nash each possess the proof to put Delgado away for good, but coming forward could destroy their relationship. Will they put self-interest aside to do the right thing?<br /><br />Susan Martin begins her new life as Mrs. Aaron Scanlon, only to find that more changes are on the horizon, and David Wheeler uncovers secrets about his friend’s and his father’s pasts that turn his world upside down.<br /><br />As Maggie Martin rediscovers an old love, will she be able to overcome her past and venture into the life she truly desires?<br /><br />Return to best-selling author Barbara Hinske’s world of Rosemont as the people of Westbury seek their happy ending.<br /><br />Interview with the Author<br /><br />Q: Have you always wanted to be a writer?<br />A: I'm an attorney and have done a lot of technical writing, but knew I wanted to write novels. I thought I'd find time when I retired. Fate stepped in, as it often does, and put me on this path sooner. I broke my neck in an auto accident and suffered from double vision for months. I couldn't read or watch TV, so I conceived the plot for my 5 book Rosemont series.<br /><br /><br />Q: Why did you decide to write a series?<br />A: I prefer television series to movies. The longer format of television allows for deeper character development. The same holds true for series fiction. I like to fall in love with a character or hate a character (but root for them to change their ways). I feel like Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi from Alexander McCall Smith's Ladies' Detective Agency series are old friends. I wanted to recreate that sort of connection in the Rosemont series.<br /><br />Q: What other authors do you read or admire?<br />A: I'm a fan of women's fiction, women's sagas, and romance. I love Rosamunde Pilcher's later trilogy -The Shell Seekers, Coming Home, and September. Jan Karon's Mitford series creates an enchanting world, as does Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove. My Rosemont series is set in the current day, but I've tried to capture a feeling of camaraderie and connection (among the good guys) that takes us back to a slightly simpler time and place.<br /><br />Q: What are your favorite books?<br />A: In addition to the works I've already mentioned, I adored Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and A Long Way from Chicago.<br /><br />Q: Who has had the greatest influence on your author life?<br />A: My dad--without question. He told me or read me a bedtime story every night of my childhood, often adding his own twists and turns to the plots or dialogue. He had an incredible, gentle sense of humor. He also wrote novels--who-done-its--when he retired. I have 17 of his manuscripts and can feel his comforting presence in the room with me when I pick up his pages and read.<br /><br />Q: What of your own interests have you written about in the Rosemont series?<br />A: I love my home and all things related to homemaking: cooking, gardening, decorating, and entertaining. I love celebrating all of the seasons and I change my decor for Easter, 4th of July, fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring. I'm also addicted to vintage silver and all sorts of china, with a special fondness for teapots.

Un ermite vivait dans la forêt, sans avoir peur des bêtes fauves. L’ermite et les bêtes fauves <br />conversaient ensemble et ils se comprenaient.<br />Un jour, l’ermite s’était étendu sous un arbre ; là s’étaient aussi réunis, pour passer la nuit, <br />un corbeau, un pigeon, un cerf et un serpent. Ces animaux se mirent à disserter sur l’origine du <br />mal dans le monde. <br />Le corbeau disait :<br />— C’est de la faim que vient le mal. Quand tu manges à ta faim, perché sur une branche et croassant, <br />tout te semble riant, bon et joyeux ; mais reste seulement deux journées à jeun, et tu n’auras même <br />plus le cœur de regarder la nature ; tu te sens agité, tu ne peux demeurer en place, tu n’as pas un <br />moment de repos ; qu’un morceau de viande se présente à ta vue, c’est encore pis, tu te jettes dessus <br />sans réfléchir. On a beau te donner des coups de bâton, te lancer des pierres ; chiens et loups ont <br />beau te happer, tu ne lâches pas. Combien la faim en tue ainsi parmi nous ? Tout le mal vient de la faim...<br />

by Louisa May Alcott<br /><br />Buy now<br /><br />for $ 0.99 , or download a preview<br /><br />Little Women is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott, which was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869. Alcott wrote the books rapidly over several months at the request of her publisher. The novel follows the lives of four sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March—detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters. Little Women "has been read as a romance or as a quest, or both. It has been read as a family drama that validates virtue over wealth", but also "as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well".[6]:34 According to Sarah Elbert, Alcott created a new form of literature, one that took elements from Romantic children's fiction and combined it with others from sentimental novels, resulting in a totally new format. Elbert argued that within Little Women can be found the first vision of the "All-American girl" and that her multiple aspects are embodied in the differing March sisters. The book has been adapted for film twice as silent films, and four times with sound, in 1933, 1949, 1978 and 1994. Four television series were made, including two in Britain in the 1950s and two anime series in Japan in the 1980s. A musical version opened on Broadway in 2005. An American opera version in 1998 has been performed internationally and filmed for broadcast on US television in 2001.

Revenge was all Leadford could think of as he set out to find the unfaithful Nettie and her adulterous lover. But this was all to change when a new comet entered the earth's orbit and totally reversed the natural order of things. The Great Change had occurred and any previous emotions, thoughts, ambitions, hopes and fears had all been removed. Free love, pacifism and equality were now the name of the game. But how will Leadford fare in this most utopian of societies ...?<br />H. G. Wells was responsible for an entirely new genre of writing. It was his bold, daring and hugely innovative books that first introduced readers to the concept of time travel, invisibility, genetic experimentation and interstellar invasion - ideas that have gone on to inspire future generations and given rise to the entire science fiction industry.

Nous autres, civilisations, nous savons maintenant que nous sommes mortelles.<br />Nous avions entendu parler de mondes disparus tout entiers, d’empires coulés à pic avec tous leurs hommes et tous leurs engins ; descendus au fond inexplorable des siècles avec leurs dieux et leurs lois, leurs académies et leurs sciences pures et appliquées ; avec leurs grammaires, leurs dictionnaires, leurs classiques, leurs romantiques et leurs symbolistes, leurs critiques et les critiques de leurs critiques. Nous savions bien que toute la terre apparente est faite de cendres, que la cendre signifie quelque chose. Nous apercevions à travers l’épaisseur de l’histoire, les fantômes d’immenses navires qui furent chargés de richesse et d’esprit. Nous ne pouvions pas les compter. Mais ces naufrages, après tout, n’étaient pas notre affaire.<br />
