“Loved this book, couldn’t put it down! A sweet love story full of action, surprises and lots of suspense! You won’t regret buying this book!” -Jen

Boone Kendall made it to the hockey big leagues ten years ago. As captain of his team, he knows all too well that when you play a game at the highest level, the whole ‘playing’ thing can be misleading. You only play if you put in the hard work. Years of it. Decades of it. You do whatever it takes—and you try to fit the rest of your life in there somewhere.

Boone knows the routine. He lives it…..he loves it…..and then he loses it. Injured and off the ice for the remainder of the season, he heads to the Full Heart Ranch, for reasons only he knows. Because his concussion isn’t the only problem he faces. In fact, it’s not even the biggest one.

Jolene Tolley is the head physical therapist at the Full Heart Ranch Veterans Retreat Center. When her favorite hockey player decides to volunteer at the Center’s brand new ice rink while recuperating from an injury, Jolene is beyond thrilled. Working with a professional athlete is the chance of a lifetime, and she’s determined to do her part to get him back on the ice as soon as possible. It’s the least she can do for her beloved team.

After spending hours together in the gym every day, Jolene discovers that Boone is dealing with a lot more than just his physical symptoms. She shouldn’t care—it’s not her problem or her responsibility. But as their attraction grows, her heart won’t let her run. She’s confident she can help his body heal, but can she help with the bigger problem? Will he trust her enough to let her try?

Boone warns the beautiful, bubbly therapist against getting involved in his personal drama. Better to not find out things she’s going to wish she didn’t know. But she’s a healer by trade, and she won’t give up. She doesn’t care about his fame or his money, she cares only about him. He knows he can trust her….and like it or not, he soon realizes he needs her.

Decisions don’t always come with a winning option—sometimes everyone loses. Sometimes God gives you a responsibility you don’t want, but you can’t get rid of it. Sometimes you have to fight to get back the game you love. And sometimes, when you’re not expecting it and don’t know if you deserve it, He blesses you with a person whose love is strong enough to survive it all. That’s when you finally get the win.

“AWESOME! I have always loved Wolfie, Terra and the rest of the pack. This set was fantastic….” -Kim

USA Today Bestselling Author

A price, a princess, and a promise.

Wolfie Young is a bloodling, a rare shifter born in wolf rather than in human form. Although he has trouble handling simple human interactions, the alpha soon finds his niche as the benevolent dictator of a pack of outcasts and misfits.

But while struggling to grow into his responsibilities, Wolfie falls into Crazy Wilder’s trap. The grizzled old shifter’s dominance ranks him above all other werewolves in the region, and Wilder shores up that position by tricking up-and-coming young alphas into promising undesignated future favors.

Wolfie flounders as he attempts to wriggle out from beneath Crazy Wilder’s thumb without harming his clan. But he’s soon left wondering — does he really want to sever all ties after meeting a pack princess who turns out to be his opponent’s enticing daughter?

The Far Side Of Paradise- A Biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald
by Arthur Mizener

Genre: Memoirs and Biographies

“Timely, scholarly but never dull.” —Budd Schulberg, New York Times

When the original edition of the first full-length biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald appeared, a decade after the writer’s death, in 1951, it was widely acclaimed as a sensitive, scholarly appraisal of the writer’s life and work.

In later years a number of revealing studies of the novelist appeared, including Morey Callaghan’s That Summer in Paris, Sheila Graham’s Beloved Infidel, Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, and Andrew Turnbull’s biography and selection of Fitzgerald’s letters.

Drawing on these, as well as the many letters from friends and the prose and letters of the writer himself, Arthur Mizener thoroughly revised his biography, updating the final two chapters. The result is a definitive portrait of Fitzgerald — the man, his work, and his exciting, globe-trotting life.

Mizener chronicles his time spent at Princeton learning the ways of the privileged classes, which he took as inspiration for his first stories, including his first novel This Side of Paradise, where he portrayed Amory Blaine as a young man not unlike Fitzgerald himself.

He married Zelda Sayre, fathered a girl named Scott and continued to enhance his literary reputation with magazine pieces, stories and full-length books, including The Beautiful and Damned, which was met with mixed reviews.

Mizener dwells on both The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night, both inspired by characters in Fitzgerald’s life. The biography is full of interesting nuggets of information which illuminate the writer and his times, including his interactions with other writers and communication with his publishers, friends and editors.

After becoming the chronicler of the ‘flapper age’, in the 1930s Fitzgerald struggled with alcoholism and the committal of Zelda on account of his schizophrenia to a mental hospital. He talked often in his correspondence of money troubles and deadlines to be met, and so brings light to the somewhat difficult role of being a professional writer who wanted to be a great one.

What if John Lennon had lived?

December 8th 1980.

Murphy ‘Jagger’ Salmon – ageing hippy, part-time drunk and Rolling Stones fan, is on his way home from the pub when he accidentally saves John Lennon from the assassin’s bullet.

By way of thanks, Jagger is offered a job working for the former Beatle and the two men quickly become friends.

But as the 1980s move forward, things quickly get out of control. When Lennon suffers a couple of career setbacks, he tries to win back the adulation of his fans by moving into politics.

But the 1980s version of John Lennon is a far cry from the radical left-winger of old. And much to Jagger’s horror, when Lennon quickly becomes an unstoppable force in American politics, the working-class hero is transformed into a right-wing poster boy.

There’s even talk of a Beatle in the White House.
