Making Bad Choices is a taboo high school romance with over ONE MILLION page reads on Kindle Unlimited. It's a sweet love story with a HEA. Recommended for 16+.<br /><br /><br />Culter Fuller came back into my life on the day my mother died.<br /><br />We'd hated each other since childhood. Well, I hated him, and I thought the feeling was mutual. Then when I moved to my dad's house to finish my last semester of high school, we went from being bitter enemies to . . . something else. He was suddenly everywhere, occupying my space and filling me with thoughts I knew were wrong.<br /><br />I knew that soon we would cross a line that should never be crossed, a line with very serious consequences. <br /><br />Because Culter wasn't just any irresistible boy, Culter Fuller was my stepbrother.<br />But I have always been very bad at making the right choices. <br /><br /><br /><b><i>"I think the reason that I found myself so captivated by this book and unable to put it down was that the storyline and characters were so realistic." </i></b> <br />- Kimberly LaRocco, Goodreads Reviewer ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ <br /><br /><b><i>"The development of Cassie and Cutlers relationship is slow, sensual and has a beauty to it that you don't often find in YA romances." </i></b> <br />- Rabid Reader, Goodreads Reviewer ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Did you ever get yourself involved in something only to discover that it's way bigger than you? Imagine corruption surrounding you and that there's no escape. It's too late for you to back out, but you're going to pay a heavy price for moving forward to make things right. That's when you have to suck it up and say to yourself:<br /> <br /> <b>Striking out is not an option . . . </b><br /><br />Survival is the name of the game when two obsessed men teeter on the cusp of madness in a war over a kids' baseball field in this thriller based on a true story. <br /><br />Travel baseball promoter Rob Barkus has a full bench. He's backed by a corrupt board of directors, a sports-fixated high school administration, and a mob of crazy travel baseball parents. He'll stop at nothing to kill the town's sandlot baseball league so that his elite travel teams can take over its beautiful Babe Ruth baseball field. <br /><br />The only obstacle between Barkus and his field of dreams is David Thompson, a Civil War buff and burned-out lawyer. When Thompson steps up to save the crumbling league for his son and the rest of the sandlot players in town, Barkus unleashes a cunning and ruthless attack against David, his family, and his teenaged league of misfit players.<br /><br />Thompson is outnumbered and surrounded. He's like a man who walked into quicksand. The harder he struggles to save the league, the deeper he sinks. On top of it all, Thompson is stuck in a family Catch-22. If he surrenders, he might lose his son's love along with his own self-respect, not to mention losing the game of summer for the sandlot kids in town. Yet if he doesn't back down, it threatens his marriage and deprives his son of any chance to play on the high school team. <br /><br />Thompson is on an emotional roller coaster and he can't get off. He is fighting his own civil war as he struggles to make a difference in the town he cherishes without harming the family he loves.<br /><br />Standing alone and pushed to his breaking point, he needs to figure out when to fold and when to fight. One thing is for sure: if he finally snaps, he won't take any prisoners.<br /><br />Captivating characters lead double lives and keep secrets in this award-winning page-turner, laced with humor, about a man who takes a stand and risks it all to make a difference in a world gone mad.<br /><br /><i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Margot Livesey says Swyers "has created a man for all seasons" in David Thompson and calls <i>Saving Babe Ruth</i> "an absorbing and compulsively readable novel."<br /><br /><b>** Get yourself a copy of this story now.

Margot tells Lizzy that nothing in life is ever really settled, not until they “pack the earth over your grave, darling.”<br /><br />And of course, as usual, Margot is right.<br /><br />Although Lizzy is living her dream at “Equus Paradiso Farm” there is no guarantee that her future is settled. She is terrified to think that despite her hard work, despite her commitment and desire, her efforts may not be enough.<br /><br />Regardless of the shifting sands beneath her feet, Lizzy still has a job to do. It is a job with growing responsibilities, without regular hours, without weekends off, that pays almost nothing and keeps beating her up physically and mentally.<br /><br />And while success is not guaranteed, failure in part or whole appears to be.<br /><br />Maybe she is foolish with her rainbow and unicorn thinking; maybe her nay-sayers were right all along and reality is coming to kick her in the rear and eject her out of paradise and back out into the ordinary world.<br /><br />Not all good deeds are rewarded, or efforts even appreciated as the territory of her daily routine gets trickier to navigate.<br /><br />Life is not fair. But giving up before the battle is finished is not an option.<br /><br />Though she’ll be tested, though she’ll know doubt and failure, she will come to discover, she is indeed, the “right girl for the job.”<br /><br />Lizzie's saga continues in Book III of the critically acclaimed Dressage Chronicles series.

<i><h3>The first book in a trilogy about three "brothers" and the girls they must protect.</h3></i><br />All Christiana wanted was a little flirty fun.<br />What she got was a one-way ticket to her personal nightmare.<br /><br />Her friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.<br /><br />It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.<br />Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.<br /><br />But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat…and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?<br /><br />She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.<br />In fact, it might just be catching up with her.<br /><br /><br /><b><i>If you're looking for a fast paced thrill ride packed with drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twists, then See No Evil is just the book for you.</i></b> <br /><br /><br /><i>COMING SOON: <br />Speak No Evil - due for release in Jan 2017<br />Hear No Evil - due for release in Feb/Mar 2017<br /><br />For exclusive access to an unpublished short story about how Christiana's nightmare began, sign up for Jordan's newsletter: http://www.subscribepage.com/u5u0a3</i><br />

Jim Thorpe was one of the greatest athletes who ever lived. He played professional football, Major League Baseball, and won Olympic gold medals in track & field. But his life wasn’t an easy one. Born on the Sac and Fox Reservation in 1887, he encountered much family tragedy, and was sent as a young boy to various Indian boarding schools—strict, cold institutions that didn’t allow their students to hold on to their Native American languages and traditions. Jim ran away from school many times, until he found his calling at Pennsylvania’s Carlisle Indian School. There, the now-legendary coach Pop Warner recognized Jim’s athletic excellence and welcomed him onto the football and track teams.<p>Focusing on Jim Thorpe’s years at Carlisle, this book brings his early athletic career—and especially his college football days—to life, while also dispelling some myths about him and movingly depicting the Native American experience at the turn of the twentieth century. This is a book for history buffs as well as sports fans—an illuminating and lively read about a truly great American.</p>
