by Daphne du Bois

Free on Amazon: The Rogue's Reluctant Rose
Miss Araminta Barrington, clever, pretty and unexpectedly poor, bravely decides to sacrifice her own happiness in a marriage of convenience, in order to save her family from certain ruin. She sets out to win a proposal from the wealthy Sir Timothy Stanton while struggling with her guilt over using a good man so poorly.
Just when success is in sight, she catches the eye of Jasper Devereaux, the scandalous Marquis of Chestleton, whose own growing fascination with the enigmatic young woman compels him to pursue her at all costs. If he can only win her into his bed, his absurd fascination will surely evaporate!
Araminta knows that to be seen in Chestleton’s company could ruin her chances of securing a marriage that will save everything she holds dear. She knows that Chestleton is not the sort of man to take a wife, and with poverty looming, she knows that love is a luxury she cannot afford. When a riding accident forces her to be his unwilling guest at a secluded country house, will her undeniable attraction override her sense of duty? Will a night of passion really be enough for the dastardly lord? And does the strange bitterness she glimpses in his eyes have anything to do with the secrets he is determined to keep close?

Those Emotions: 21 Things You Wish You Knew

Those Emotions: 21 Things You Wish You Knew
by Daniel Speraw


Negative feelings do heave, yank and drag down the quality of life, day by day; they can even push us away from those we care about, which is why much of this book is about releasing anger, sadness, guilt and the like.


It will give you that one often overlooked element for releasing negative emotions (#9 & #10).

You will recognize the most popular way of trying to stop guilt—you know, the one that doesn’t quite work—and you will know how to make it work for you (#1thru #4).
You will also know what to do with uncomfortable feelings that come up around loud children (#18).
Forgiveness too: so simple to talk about; so simple to do; and so very difficult to continue doing—some helpful tips await you (#5 & #6).
And so much more. Best of all, while making these discoveries, you will find yourself being entertained. Yes, entertained!


I hope your chair is equipped with a seat belt, because this book has some jolting (read unusual) ideas and approaches (and takes an uncommon look at normal approaches), all to get you thinking in new ways.
IF YOU DO indeed turn these pages, you will find yourself flipped below the surface of life, straight to the heart of those hurtful problems, and you can gain an array of new ways to take action.

BONUS: A FREE eBOOK offer within that has full topics from all four books in the series.


It does not take an entire book, or even 15 pages to understand a simple solution. One or 3 pages is usually enough, and here is a book that does it short, sweet and on the run.
You can also add the word entertaining, because you have never seen solutions presented in this way.
IS THIS BOOK REALLY ALL THAT? See for yourself by scrolling up, looking left and clicking the “Look Inside” icon.


You should definitely compile all of these columns into a book! I would buy it straight away. PARTIKIN
The title is an understatement. The unique way that the author explains examples of everyday griefs, gripes, and negative thoughts and then in turn gives insightful solutions to help you change your mindset in small simple ways that everyone can implement at their own pace and comfort level. It has definitely left me thinking. GOODIEGUNTZ
I have nominated you for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award. Keep up the great writing! ANONYMOUS
I felt like you were writing this to me! lol. I am going through this exact thing at work right now. What an interesting approach. I am already imagining the look on my boss’s face when I decide to let her win in our next discussion. Thank you. ANN
When the ego rears its ugly head, Speraw has his finger right on its jugular. With a touch of levity, he adeptly analyses common emotions and life situations to help the reader see through the veils of habit and peer pressure initiated behaviors. I consider this a meaningful read for understanding contemporary cultural quandaries. JAMI

by Nicky Charles

Elise had no idea when she came home that day that she'd end up mated to a complete stranger. A new Alpha and the need for an alliance between packs have made her a pawn Excerpt: She lay beside him, staring blankly at the ceiling. The deed was done. They were mated. It didn't matter that she had no love for him nor he for her. Political alliances were more important than feelings...

The Elysium End

The Elysium End
by Roland Cheek

Free on Amazon: The Elysium End
He was an old man holding a brown bag, with cancer slowly having its painful way. He had nothing left for which to live. 
Favorite horse and world’s greatest dog—both gone. 
Few friends left—the best of the rest having passed over the Great Divide.
Once young and vibrant, with a young and beautiful wife who loved him and loved to do the kinds of thing that turned his crank: visiting wild places and watching wild things, climbing mountains, riding horses over winding trails; theirs was a life of envy to other outdoors lovers. Now all left were memories, some bitter, some sweet. Memories and a couple of horses, one bitter, one sweet.
He’d planned it carefully, chosen the wildest, most beautiful, most remote cliff-lined basin he knew; a place seldom (if ever) visited by another human. He’d hunted elk a couple of times there in the blush of his youth, then revisited with his wife forty years later. He said he wanted to go to this most beautiful place “one last time,” and she insisted on going too, mostly because she feared, in his dotage, to let him venture to such a remote and dangerous place alone. It was their last horseback packtrip together. . . .
Now, he’d fought off yesterday’s pain, ignored bone-tiring weariness, spaced out traitorous second thoughts, and dismissed the questioning of an ordered mind to reach this, his own private wild place for what would certainly be his last time. It was to be his “Elysium End.”
The last two horses from the years he guided others to wilderness adventure brought him here, the ugly dishwater mare and the bay packhorse. The bay was a fine, trustworthy packhorse, though long in the tooth—growing old. The mare was something else: ugly as sin, with a head so large his old friend Lars claimed she “could lick oats out of the bottom a fifty-gallon drum and still stare all around for enemies.” But Lyle, another old friend, said the Nez Perce Indians bred appaloosas because it was a breed that was “so clumsy and slow that its owner could catch one while on foot.”
The ugly mare was indeed clumsy. And her trot was bone-jarring. She galloped like a sick milk cow. But she was good for one thing: she could walk! Smooth, too. Riding her running walk was like squatting in the rear seat of a brand-new Lincoln Continental on a fresh-laid macadam highway. Just because God didn’t make her into a surrey trotter or a steeplechaser wasn’t her fault. Neither could she help her lack of color, or the size of her head. She could walk, though. And if walk was what was wanted, then walk, by God, was what she’d do!
But he could never warm up to her. He couldn’t warm up to her mostly because she ignored him as if he never existed. If he scratched an ear, it was something to which she was resigned, but cared not a whit about one way or another. She accepted oats as if it was her due, showing no gratitude, and certainly no affection. The animal tolerated him. That was all.
