With the King of Altera on his deathbed, all eyes are on his only child, eighteen year old Angeline Robart. The crown princess spent the last two years finishing her studies in a remote convent far away from the capital city of Brebackerin and the prying public. After being called home to her father's side in preparation for her Ascension, Angeline is kidnapped en route by Connor, a mysterious rogue who has his own reasons for becoming involved in the high stakes game of intrigue.

As the last of the Robart bloodline, Angeline soon discovers that enemies long thought conquered have been doing nothing but lying in wait for just such an opportunity to turn things to their advantage. Worse yet, by uncovering those secrets Angeline is forced to confront the possibility that no one expected her to ever take the throne in anything but title only.

Facing the impossible consequences of a freak accident, Angeline must travel a dangerous path to regain control of her fate and her kingdom even if that means relying on Connor, who epitomizes everything her family hated and tried to destroy. But the more she learns about Connor, the more she realizes they have far more in common than she ever expected, and that could make him just the ally she needs.

Being a divorce attorney for the rich and famous isn't all it's cracked up to be. Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn't last, and she's sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever.

When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he's always wanted and couldn't have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close.

But now, one of Julie's clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex wife ends up dead. Julie's next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find ... the end?

About the series... 
The Walker Brothers...

Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.
READING ORDER DOES NOT EFFECT STORIES AT ALL
Excerpt:

Her hand went to his wrist and heat darted up his arm, but it was the vulnerable, insecure look on her face that undid him. She didn't think he wanted her. Despite his attention, despite the kisses that would, and should have, set off a five-alarm blaze, she didn't know.

He slid his hand to her neck. "I only want one woman and that's you."

"Then act like it, Luke," she said, "because you're confusing me and I don't know what you want. I--"

He covered her mouth with his and for the first time since his return, he let her taste his desire, let her feel the hunger inside him that no one had sated since her. His hand slid over the sexy curve of her hip to the dip of her tiny waist.
Her arms wrapped around his neck, and she molded herself to his body. She was no longer vulnerable or timid. She was the seductress she could be, the seductress he knew had just lured him to the very place he'd sworn he wouldn't go. To the land of lust and forgetfulness where she ruled, where sex was a weapon, and a wall of separation grew despite the absence of clothing.

Rating - G
4.1 (7 reviews)
FREE until 8th September 2012
Water spirits, moon maidens, haunted pianos, headless revenants, and an invincible terrapin that lives under the mountains. None of these distract James Holtzclaw from his employer's mission: to turn the fading gold-rush town of Auraria, GA, into a first-class resort and drown its fortunes below a man-made lake. But when Auraria's peculiar people and problematic ghosts collide with his own rival ambitions, Holtzclaw must decide what he will save and what will be washed away.

Taking its inspiration from a real Georgia ghost town, Auraria is steeped in the folklore of the Southern Appalachians, where the tensions of natural, supernatural and artificial are still alive.Creep

Prevent Bullying and Encourage Good Character


If you are a parent or teacher concerned about your children and the effects of bullying, you will want to read Thomas and the Lily Pond.

Bullying has an enormous negative impact on our society. It can strike unexpectedly and it leaves millions of innocent victims completely bewildered and often ostracized through no fault of their own. The earlier we can alert our children to this unfortunate reality the better. It requires reaching out to them as soon as they can comprehend the meaning of the word bullying.

Perfect for Children Four to Six Years Old


Thomas and the Lily Pond is a book written for children from ages four to six years old. It specifically describes this issue, the signs leading up to it and the full impact bullying can have on the recipient. It is a fully illustrated story set in a forest, revolving around a very contented group of animals working and interacting together very amiably, until their world is quite literally turned upside down.

The cause of this upset is due to the arrival of an enormous frog who is decidedly devoid of any social mores. His primary target is the poor, hapless turtle named Thomas, a hard worker and also a very popular and valued member of the community, until he has the great misfortune of being confronted by this large, green, uninvited interloper. 

Trust, betrayal, loyalty and manipulation are demonstrated and brought into question in Thomas and the Lily Pond. Friends of the docile turtle now turn on him. Included in this melange is a feisty skunk named Spike, who values his role as fierce protector of the forest, a vain blue jay, a chatterbox chickadee, a bounding rabbit with large, droopy ears and a very prickly porcupine, named Princeton. A deceitful plan is hatched and most of the trusting group forget about their true and loyal friend as they are all consumed by greed.

The whole scene is observed by Winston, the wise owl who sits and surveys all from his perch high up in the old oak tree. After a raging storm erupts and a potential disaster in very wild and rough water, the group is rescued by the least strident and innocent one of all.

Wisdom, Positive Influences and Pitfalls to Avoid


There are many pearls of wisdom and many pitfalls to enlighten your child within this creatively illustrated and easy to understand story. By the conclusion, many questions will be up for discussion as to why some people do not have our best interests in mind, but rather, their motives are often driven by a self serving agenda. Children will recognize how easy it can be to lose sight of their own values and fall prey to others through great temptation and the influence and pressure of others.

In Thomas and the Lily Pond your child will see many examples of unacceptable behaviour that unfortunately and increasingly pervade our society. Through this recognition and understanding your child may be able to make a difference in the world.

This is a book parents can easily read to their child in its entirety, or enjoy and savour chapter by chapter as a bedtime story over the course of several evenings.
