<b> A (standalone) HOT ROMANTIC COMEDY</b><br />I just wanted an easy summer job...<br />That didn't happen. Now, I'm in a living nightmare as I work alongside this monster of a man with mesmerizing emerald eyes that look at me inappropriately every time I see him. To add insult to injury, he has a tan I just want to lick, and a butt worth drooling over every time he purposefully walks by me. But, he's an asshat, and looks are everything. I mean, aren't. LOOKS. ARE. NOT. EVERYTHING. Why do I have to keep reminding myself of this?<br /><br />His job is to clean, cook, and tend to the house we work in. That's why I call him the manservant. Oh, and because it drives him nuts. That's what he gets for torturing me.<br /><br />This is a story of little restraint, too much desire, questionable actions, no strength whatsoever, and the best sex I've ever had.<br /><br />The question is: Do I fall for this crude manservant whose idea of a fun time is to tie people up and do obscene things, or do I give him a taste of his own medicine?<br /><br />All I'm going to say is . . . Things get weird, then hot, then weird again, and--you get my drift.<br /><br />Go ahead and laugh. It might not be so funny if it happened to you.

<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36”<br><br></b>For readers of <i>Unbroken</i>, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant.<br><br> It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.<br><br><br><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

At twenty-one, Maryn Cannon found herself standing at a crossroads. With college graduation approaching, she had two options: follow the traditional career trajectory and buy a business professional wardrobe, or follow the uncertain career trajectory and find a job in the outdoors.<br /><br />This book shares the stories of eighteen inspiring women that showed Maryn that choosing a life in the outdoors can be done, and should be done.<br /><br />These women shared details about what comes along with being a woman in the outdoor industry – both the indoor corporate sphere and outdoor athletic sphere. Their experiences runs the gamut from professional sailing, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, alpine climbing, and kitesurfing, to thru-hiking, ultramarathon running, fly fishing, solo-backpacking, and outdoor education instruction. These uplifting women (and so many more) have not only accomplished jaw-dropping feats in the outdoors, but they have defied our society’s expectations.<br /><br />"Maryn distills many of the thoughts about the industry that have floated around my head for years. I wish I’d read this book when I was finishing school. She gives hope that there’s a future for everyone in the outdoors, not just bearded dudes in flannel." <br />- Liz Thomas, experienced long-distance hiker

It began simply enough. Breeze’s old friend knew right where the gold was. All he had to do was pick it up. He enlisted Holly for her diving skills. The mission would only take a day. <br /><br />That’s not how it turned out. First, it was the shark. Then it was the curious golden idols. Then it was the ex-con treasure hunter. Holly’s patience wears thin as Breeze drags her deeper and deeper into turmoil. <br /><br />Can their tenuous relationship survive? Can Breeze turn the mission around? Will he live long enough to make them all rich? <br /><br />Follow Leap of Faith and Another Adventure from the west coast of Florida to the Keys, and Costa Rica. Watch the deal go down in a seedy section of Miami. <br /><br />One hard man will leave with millions. <br />
