The demands of military service can be rough on loved ones, whether husband and wife or brother and sister, and that is no different for Esther and Noah Lysander, twin children of General Ryck Lysander, former Chairman of the United Federation. But blood still runs deep, and when Esther, now a battalion commander, finds herself suddenly without a sergeant major, she turns to family. Against all advice, she pulls strings to get Noah assigned to the battalion to assist her in preparing it for a routine deployment.<br /><br />“Routine” deployments don’t always remain routine for the Federation Marines and Navy, and soon, the battalion is thrust into action. It is one thing to deal with port visits and show-the-flag ceremonies, but when things get serious, can Esther and Noah lead the battalion in combat as the professional warriors they’ve become, or will their family ties affect their decisions? <br />

<div></div> <div> <div><b>"A consistently exciting and never predictable series."-</b><b>-Associated Press</b></div> <div><br /></div> <div>When Grace Ozmian, the beautiful and reckless daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire, first goes missing, the NYPD assumes she has simply sped off on another wild adventure. Until the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, the head nowhere to be found.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Lieutenant CDS Vincent D'Agosta quickly takes the lead. He knows his investigation will attract fierce scrutiny, so D'Agosta is delighted when FBI Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast shows up at the crime scene assigned to the case. "I feel rather like Brer Rabbit being thrown into the briar patch," Pendergast tells D'Agosta, "because I have found you here, in charge. Just like when we first met, back at the Museum of Natural History."</div> <div><br /></div> <div>But neither Pendergast nor D'Agosta are prepared for what lies ahead. A diabolical presence is haunting the greater metropolitan area, and Grace Ozmian was only the first of many victims to be murdered . . . and decapitated. Worse still, there's something unique to the city itself that has attracted the evil eye of the killer.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>As mass hysteria sets in, Pendergast and D'Agosta find themselves in the crosshairs of an opponent who has threatened the very lifeblood of the city. It'll take all of Pendergast's skill to unmask this most dangerous foe-let alone survive to tell the tale.</div></div> <div><br /></div>

<b>A spinster wanting something different…</b><br />Anna Stuart was comfortable with her life until the letter came. The letter shatters all the routines, comfort, and enjoyment of simply taking care of her father and older brother. As she starts to go to church—against her father’s wishes—she finds a new meaning for her life, but she wants more.<br /><br /><b>Two motherless boys…</b><br />Then she meets John and James and discovers a new purpose to her life. She offers to help their father and enjoys the challenge.<br /><br /><b>One rumor that could destroy it all.</b><br />A pastor should never be more careful who he keeps company with. Can Anna and those around her see the true vision they need from God? Or will the rumors destroy all her happiness? Again.<br /><br />Note from the Author: Even though this book is the 2nd in the series, reading <i>A Mighty Fortress</i> is not essential to reading <i>Be Thou My Vision</i>. That being said, some things in <i>A Mighty Fortress</i> would help you to further understand some of the backstory in this book.

<b>The runaway <i>New York Times </i>bestseller!<br /><br />Named a Best Book of the Year by: <br /><i>People, The Washington Post, Bustle, Esquire, Southern Living, The Daily Beast, GQ, Entertainment Weekly, </i>NPR, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Audible, Goodreads, Library Reads, <b>Book of the Month, <i>Paste</i>, </b><i>Kirkus Reviews</i>, <i>St. Louis Post-Dispatch, </i>and many more!<br />  <br /> "I read <i>Little Fires Everywhere</i> in a single, breathless sitting." –Jodi Picoult<br /><br />“To say I love this book is an understatement.

It moved me to tears.” - Reese Witherspoon<br /><br />“I am loving <i>Little Fires Everywhere</i>. Maybe my favorite novel I've read this year.”—John Green<br /><br />"Witty, wise, and tender. It's a marvel." – Paula Hawkins<br /></b><br />From the bestselling author of <i>Everything I Never Told You</i>, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.<br /><br /> In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.<br /><br /> Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.<br /><br />When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town--and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides.  Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs. <br /><br /> <i>Little Fires Everywhere</i> explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.<br /><br />Perfect for book clubs!

<b>Speed skating, hockey, and romance.</b><br /><br />James no longer believed in miracles. Particularly not on the ice. Not after a family tragedy in the midst of an ice storm. Then an elegant, nameless vision skated past him and challenged him to a race. They raced two times splitting the victories, and then four thousand miles of land and ocean put a gaping distance between them.<br /><br />The vision was a Dutchman named Lucas, and at age 24 he was already retired from the national sport of speed skating. He held a secret close to his chest to justify the retirement. It was a secret that faced the possibility of unraveling when he got to know James.<br /><br />James played a starring role on his college hockey team, but he found skating for speed addictive after meeting Lucas. Pursuing both sports filled his life with excitement until disaster struck, and James threatened to turn his back on the ice and Lucas forever.<br /><br />When one of them finds the strength to claim victory over internal foes, will it be enough for two?<br /><br /><b>Built for Speed</b> is a 50,000-word gay romance novel with a happily-ever-after ending and second chance themes. It is the first book in the series <b>Winter Sports</b>, but it can be read either as a standalone story or an introduction to the series.
