Synopsis: Since she was a little girl, Emma Grant has always loved romance. So it’s really no surprise that she has found her calling as a wedding florist. She gets to play with flowers every day and work with her three best friends in the process. She couldn’t ask for a better job…

And on the surface, Emma’s love life seems to be thriving. Slim and sultry, she brings color into every room she enters, just like the arrangements she creates. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn’t found Mr. Right. And the last place she’s looking is right under her nose.

But that’s just where Jack Cooke is. He’s been best friends with Parker’s brother for years, which makes him practically family. But the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. And when Emma returns his passion—kiss for blistering kiss—things start to get complicated at Vows.

Jack has never been big on commitment. Emma yearns for a lifelong love affair. And if the two are to find common ground, they must trust in their history—and in their hearts…

Synopsis: 

In this intimate look at a fascinating subculture, award-winning sports journalist Josh Peter takes readers along on the Professional Bull Riders tour to witness the death-defying confrontation between man and beast that has made bull riding the fastest growing sport in the world. Success in this sport is measured in seconds—staying on a bull for 8 seconds without getting tossed is likely to secure the rider a big score. Josh Peter captures the high drama of the sport and introduces readers to a culture that’s rife with colorful characters: courageous riders, scouts, breeders, love-struck groupies, and a few of those very angry bulls.

Synopsis: 

This is not a rodeo. They don’t rope calves or chase barrels. This is bull riding, and the first rule is to just stay alive. It’s one man, one bull, and eight precious seconds. Professional Bull Riders: The Official Guide to the Toughest Sport on Earth is your ticket to the action. All of the blood, sweat, and dirt is here in a full-color collection of breathtaking, action-packed photographs from the Professional Bull Riders. The PBR is one of the fastest-growing sports in history, boasting multimillion-dollar purses for its athletes and more than 100 million television viewers in 70 countries across the globe. That’s no small feat when you consider that less than two decades ago the PBR was nothing more than a dream shared by 20 cowboys. Longtime fans of the sport will get a behind-the-chutes look at their favorite riders and bulls. All the greats are here, from Adriano Moraes, Justin McBride, and Chris Shivers to Little Yellow Jacket and Mossy Oak Mudslinger. Newcomers will get a clear and concise introduction to the sport–its origins, the rules of competition, and what it takes to become a champion–and an overview of the Western way of life. This collection of lavish photographs is a visual treat for anyone interested in the world’s toughest sport.

Synopsis: 

Don’t think.

Don’t question.

Just do.

The anonymous note wasn’t for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in the habit of reading other people’s mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly— deliciously—it was not.

Before replacing the note—and the ones that followed— in its rightful slot, I devoured its contents: suggestions, instructions, commands. Each was more daring, more intricate and more arousing than the last… and I followed them all to the letter.

Before the notes, if a man had told me what to do, I’d have told him where to go. But submission is an art, and there’s something oddly freeing about doing someone’s bidding…especially when it feels so very, very good. But I find that the more I surrender, the more powerful I feel—so it’s time to switch up roles.

We play by my rules now.

Christmas Gifts:

Synopsis: Take a wonderfully crazed excursion into the demented heart of a tropical paradise—a world of cargo cults, cannibals, mad scientists, ninjas, and talking fruit bats. Our bumbling hero is Tucker Case, a hopeless geek trapped in a cool guy’s body, who makes a living as a pilot for the Mary Jean Cosmetics Corporation. But when he demolishes his boss’s pink plane during a drunken airborne liaison, Tuck must run for his life from Mary Jean’s goons. Now there’s only one employment opportunity left for him: piloting shady secret missions for an unscrupulous medical missionary and a sexy blond high priestess on the remotest of Micronesian hells. Here is a brazen, ingenious, irreverent, and wickedly funny novel from a modern master of the outrageous.

Synopsis: 

Brother turns on brother to win the ultimate prize, the throne of England, in this dazzling account of the wars of the Plantagenets. They are the claimants and kings who ruled England before the Tudors, and now Philippa Gregory brings them to life through the dramatic and intimate stories of the secret players: the indomitable women, starting with Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.

The White Queen tells the story of a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition who, catching the eye of the newly crowned boy king, marries him in secret and ascends to royalty. While Elizabeth rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the missing princes in the Tower of London…

Synopsis: 

The Return of Rafe MacKade

Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy has returned. Cleaned up and successful now—and still dangerously good-looking—Rafe MacKade sets the town on fire, and tongues wagging.

Lovely newcomer Regan Jones is intrigued—what kind of man could cause this sort of talk? She’s just about to find out.…

The Pride of Jared MacKade

He was a man who stood for something, and never turned his back on a fight. So when Jared MacKade’s work as an attorney brought him up against Savannah Morningstar, her rude behavior and strong defenses weren’t going to stop him.

Savannah was the type of woman who defeated odds brutally stacked against her. And once he got to know her, Jared was determined to be the man to stand beside her in the fight.

Synopsis: 

A Snowbound Christmas . . . A Second-chance bride!

Practical Jenna Walsh has done something impratical. She’s met a man on the Internet and now, a month before Christmas, she’s going to Alaska to marry him. Dalton Gray seems to be everything she wants in a husband — sensitive, gallant, romantic . . .

On the flight to Fairbanks, she has the misfortune to sit beside Reed Kenner, who obviously isn’t Sensitive, gallant, or romantic. However, he’s not impressed with her plan to marry Dalton, a man he detests (for good reason, as Jenna later finds out). So Reed takes it upon himself to change her destination — and her marriage plans.

Which is why Jenna ends up at Reed’s Cabin in tiny Snowbound Alaska. It’s currently a one-woman town (and the other woman’s out of town). That leaves Reed, a bunch of eccentric old men, a few grizzly bears — and Jenna. Kidnapped! AN dthen there’s a blizzard. The two of them alone, stranded in Snowbound . . .

Hmm. Maybe she’ll be a Christmas bride, after all!
