Farley is an introverted mess. Overweight and still living with his parents he didn't think his confidence could get any lower until he's carjacked in a convenience store parking lot. The severe beating is nothing compared to having to replace his mom's car on his part-time wages. He makes a plan to change his life around starting with getting fit. Farley can't see why anyone like Oscar would have even the slightest interest in him. He's a goof-off at best but when Oscar agrees to help him get into shape at the gym, Farley won't say no. He'll just have to keep his libido in check before he makes a fool of himself. Oscar can't explain why his inner wolf has taken him to a hospital room where a man lay, his face swollen and bruised. Until now, he and his wolf have lived in harmony. When Oscar wants physical contact he goes out and gets it, no strings, no second nights. But that all goes out the window when he sees Farley. He doesn't know the first thing about being a mate, but he knows that no one will ever hurt Farley again. Oscar fears his intense feelings may scare his mate away so Oscar agrees to be Farley's trainer. As fun as watching Farley squat may be, Oscar begins to suspect that the simple carjacking Farley endured may be a sign of something more, that he may be in danger. But this time, Farley won't be left beaten. Farley is his baby to protect.

The 24/7 Baby Doctor is the essential twenty-first-century reference guide for new parents. Doing away with the often intimidating “What to Expect” approach of so many parenting books, Dr. Victoria Rogers McEvoy coaches readers in an encouraging, you-can-do-this voice, telling parents what they can do and when they need to consult their doctor. She asks (and answers) all key questions, on topics such as sleep, food, crying, stooling, spitting up, development, health and safety, and technology. She offers evidence-based solutions that reflect American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations and the latest research—whether on vaccines, autism, or cognitive products that supposedly make babies smarter. And, where possible, Dr. McEvoy gives parents the parameters to make their own choices.

Men of the Bible takes a close-up look at fifty-two men in Scripture—complex flesh-and-blood characters whose strengths and weaknesses often seem strangely similar to our own. Heroes and villains, sinners and prophets, commoners and kings . . . their dramatic life stories provide us with fresh perspective on the unfolding story of redemption.Though our culture differs vastly from theirs, the fundamental issues we face in relation to God and the world remain the same. We still reach for great dreams and selfish ambitions. We wrestle with fear and indecision, struggle with sexual temptation, and experience the ache of loneliness and the devastation of betrayal. And, like many of these men, we long to walk more closely with the God who calls us into an intimate relationship with himself and who enables us to fulfill his purpose for our lives. Men of the Bible offers men and women today a unique devotional experience that combines five elements. Each week becomes a personal retreat focused on the life of a particular man:Monday: His Story—a narrative retelling of the biblical storyTuesday: A Look at the Man—focusing on the heart of the man and how his story connects with your own lifeWednesday: His Legacy in Scripture—a Bible study on principles revealed through the life of the manThursday: His Legacy of Promise—Bible promises that apply to his life and yoursFriday: His Legacy of Prayer—praying in light of his storyDesigned for personal prayer and study or for use in small groups, Men of the Bible will help you make Bible reading a daily habit. Whether you dip into portions or read every page, this book will help you grow in character, wisdom, and obedience as a person after God’s own heart.
This is a story of love and loss of three childhood friends, Lauren, Maddison, and Jennifer, who had their whole lives planned out. Their future was bright. All three of them had been accepted to Spellman University. This would be the beginning of the rest of their lives. The girls had rented a beach house for the summer and had plans of lying out in the sun and pool parties and lots of shopping, until tragedy strikes, and Maddison learns that her brother is barely clinging to life, and the outcome does not look good. The girls pack up and return to their hometown to find out that her brother was murdered. Unable to console one another, this experience left them scarred for life. Their tight-knit bond was unraveling. All they ever knew was each other. How would they navigate life without one another? Before long, they were all leading different lives. If they only knew what was to come, would they have tried harder to stay tied to one another like the sheets they tied together to make tents when they had sleepovers? Truth is, no one could predict what was to happen next. They say time heals all wounds. I think Lauren, Maddison, and Jennifer would have to disagree.

Did you know that Barnacle geese were once classified as fish? That both the Cherokees and the ancient Greeks were convinced that cranes regularly fought battles with pygmies? That the Swiss believed that any cuckoo that managed to survive for a year would turn into an eagle? Throughout history, birds have fascinated and intrigued mankind, so it is hardly surprising that an astonishingly rich body of myth, legend and superstition has grown up around them. Flights of Fancy explores the stories told about 30 of the world's best-known species, from the blackbird to the wryneck, drawing on traditions from every quarter of the globe. Some of the stories included clearly arose as a result of faulty observation, such as the widely held belief that nightjars sucked milk from cows. Others stemmed from attempts to explain unusual aspects of appearance or behaviour. But the vast majority seem to have their origins in people's delight in inventing stories - whether the legend that the blackbird was originally white, or the suggestion that witches kept owls as their familiars. And, as Peter Tate points out, what is so extraordinary is that the same story often crops up in many different parts of the world: the belief that eagles and snakes are sworn enemies can be found as far apart as Iraq and Mexico; the view that the raven is the harbinger of bad luck can be found throughout Europe from Denmark to Spain. A fascinating and wonderfully entertaining read, this is the ideal book for anyone interested in birds or myths - or both.

In 1989 I met Ron; it was love at first sight, which later became a nightmare. My life was one of devastating choices in order to survive. My children and I were ensnared in a trap of brutality that was hauntingly real. The decision I made in order to live one more day under tortuous circumstances prevented him from killing me allowing my children and me to survive. With one bag of food at my door I fed my kids for a week, we were literally without a dime. My strength and willful confidence kept us going and my children believed in me, that was what kept us alive. Today I can honestly say- Ive come a long way.
Shortlisted for the ABIA Award (Biography of the Year) 2015 A searingly honest memoir of family, cancer, love ... and unicycles by the founders of the Love your Sister charity, Connie and Samuel Johnson, that will inspire and they hope get people talking about boobs! Born a year apart, Connie and Samuel Johnson have always been close. Faced with the devastating news that they would soon be separated forever, they made a decision. After already surviving cancer twice in her young life, at 33 Connie was diagnosed with breast cancer. But this time it was a whole different ball game. This time she was told she will die, leaving behind her two sons. As a young mum faced with her own death, Connie wanted to make it all less meaningless, and she knew just the way to do it - send her brother, Sam, on a one-wheeled odyssey around Australia. The aims: to break the world record for the longest distance travelled on a unicycle. To raise $1 million for the Garvan Research Foundation. And, most importantly, to remind women to be breast aware and stop others having to say goodbye to those they love. Their message is simple: 'Don't fall into the booby trap.' Samuel has travelled through every state and ridden more than 150,000 kilometres to raise awareness and raise research dollars. But Connie had a secret fourth aim: to fix Samuel. And it worked. Sam cleared his diary, cleaned himself up and tenaciously kept his promise to his dying sister. For them the job isn't over. They are determined to raise more money for research. Connie vows to fight until her dying day and Sam says the fight will go on long after that. These two remarkable Australians share their tale, from childhood through to the finish line and beyond in this truly unique story.
