Love is always a beautiful thing when it’s shared, respected, and cherished. The moment it becomes any less than those three, your relationship and sanity are damned to hell. Don’t believe it? Just ask Paradise “Goody” Maverick. Once upon a time, she’d been the hopeless romantic type who thought she’d fall in love and stay that way forever, only to be painfully reminded that forever doesn’t always last. High school sweethearts and the only loves they’ve ever known, Goody and Kayson Miller have lived happily, chased dreams, and established a life together. The house, the cars, the success, and anything else Goody could name, they’d grinded and gotten it together. She had just gotten to the peak of her happiness when life decided to come around and knock her down. What happens when love is no longer enough? What do you do when you’re betrayed and left by your best friend? Who’s to blame when you have nothing left to give, not even to yourself? The idea of second chances seems utterly detestable, so when Jerrico shows up looking, smelling, and acting like a knight in shining armor, what’s a girl to do? Do you suck it up and move on, or do you harbor rage and bitterness? Ask Goody, she knows. The heart of the heartless, hollowed and emptied by that thing called love. Fed up and against anything that involves a man and her emotions, she’s prepared to kiss Jerrico goodbye, or so she thinks... welcome to the life of a SAVAGE. Men, remember, anything you can do... women can do better. Heads up, Queens, this one is for us!

It’s funny how love has a way of changing things. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, life throws you a curveball. Marcellus Blake knew that better than anyone. He’d been living his life on a private high until being inadvertently forced to expose himself. Not at all accustomed to explaining himself or considering any needs outside of his own, he’s become immersed in one of the most difficult situations of his life. Not realizing it until it was too late, Marcellus finds his heart torn between two women with no way out. Everything that seemed right and natural has now become the biggest fight of his life. How does he walk away from everything he’s known to embark on an unknown road with uncertain feelings? More than willing and inadvertently eager to trust his newest feelings, Marcellus pursues what feels right, only to be met with one barrier after the next. What’s a man to do when he’s broken the heart that was made for him? How does he retract the feelings that were never supposed to form? Where does he start picking up the regretful pieces that he’s lost? Above all, when does the woman he wants, begin to want him back? ...It’s all fun and games until the person you love no longer loves you back...
Have you ever prayed for something harder than you’ve ever prayed for anything, and then it happens, and you don’t know if you’re really ready for it? Well, so has Goody. Praying for a good man then actually getting one were two totally different things. In her mind, her world would be complete if that happened, so naturally, when it did, she was happy but then came fear. Fear of what the future would hold, or whether or not she was even good enough for her answered prayers. Lucky for her, Jerrico Blake is well equipped and intently focused on Goody and every need she has. A man with many honorable traits, Jerrico is a Godsend, but he’s not to be taken lightly. Though he can withstand the toughest times with the hardest people, that doesn’t mean he wants to. Desiring love and happiness as much as the next person, Goody’s rejection may have worn thin. Not sure whether she’s worth the fight, Jerrico second guesses his initial intentions. Will Goody’s past destroy her future, or will she be woman enough to pick up her pieces and put her own future back together?

My Synopsis A Small Part of Me This book is composed of two different parts, which stems from my life experiences. Part one is titled Mixed Emotions and part two is Lifes Daily Trials. I use the name Jehovah because Margaret M. Johnson, my beautiful grandmother, spoke of Jehovah every day. Many cultures pray to different names in reference to God. This is the name I heard growing up with a grandmother who singly cared for as many as fourteen children in one household. My wonderful mother, Barbara W. Marsh, taught me its not how well-known you are, its what you do to become well-known. In order to get a friend, you first need to be one. Not all friends turn out to be as true friends as you are to them, but you learn as you go. Part one is about feelings of the mind, heart, and soul. As we become older, we, in turn, should become wiser. It doesnt happen with everyone because we all sometimes follow when we should lead. In following, I have suffered more than some and less than others, but only Jehovah knows how much either way. Part two is a compilation of short narratives. The intentions are to strengthen whoever is feeling down about something in their life mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. In time, promoting hope and shedding light on a negative lifestyle. Some of these narratives have changed things in my life that very few people know of today. I hope those that read this book will see that you dont need to go down the wrong path in order to do right. I hope and pray that this book will help you see some things within yourself that could be changed for the better. Each of us have some things that we have been through in life, but the name of the game is survival and education. Jehovah teaches us many things in everyday living, mostly through blessings. Temptation is always going to be there, but its up to each one of us to survive them. We can share our pain with others and hope that they can make a negative decision into a positive one. This bo
Lucy Lang isn't looking for fireworks. She's looking for a nice, decent man. Someone who'll mow the lawn, flip chicken on the barbecue, teach their future children to play soccer. But most important: someone who won't inspire the slightest stirring in her heart…or anywhere else. A young widow, Lucy can't risk that kind of loss again. But sharing her life with a cat named Fat Mikey and the Black Widows at the family bakery isn't enough either. So it's goodbye to Ethan, her hot but entirely inappropriate "friend with privileges" and hello to a man she can marry. Too bad Ethan Mirabelli isn't going anywhere. As far as he's concerned, what she needs might be right under her nose. But can he convince her that the next best thing can really be forever?
The lives of four generations of one Louisiana family, woven together by a master storyteller Tracing a family's roots is like taking a journey through the years. In the case of one Louisiana family, that journey can be charted by the books they read and loved. The journey begins in 1939 with Rose, who moves with her mother and siblings from rural Texas to live with their estranged grandfather in the Louisiana bayou. Rose connects with this flavorful community through her love of books and by driving a bookmobile. Two decades later, Merle Henry, Rose's son, is more passionate about trapping a mink than about reading, although there is a place in his heart for Old Yeller. In 1973, Merle Henry's daughter, Annabeth, feels torn between reading fairy tales and a crush on a real-life knight in shining armor. And in the present day, Annabeth's son, Kyle, finds himself in a bind: he hates reading, but the only summer job he can get is at the library. In her people-smart way, Kimberly Willis Holt introduces us to a Louisiana family: touching, lyrical, and always intriguing, their stories reveal the powerful connections between four generations. Part of Me is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

After many years of researching, studying and learning about simple everyday life situations we go through and listening to others, I finally made it to the point where I’m able to share a more personal look inside of my life and the lives of everyday normal people. As you read, “A Part Of Me, You & Us”, you’ll see life is not always a bed of roses as some would have You to believe, but it is a blessing. As I open up and expose a part of who I really am; a part I’ve kept hidden or at least I thought it was hidden; a part of Me that now wants to speak on its own terms. I realized my blessing isn’t just for Me, it’s also for those who God has brought and will bring into my life to assist Me in their own unique way and share their own stories. You’re going to read about some of the events that have helped Us get to this point in our lives. This is a look inside the minds of a few people who are willing to share their stories with the intent of helping others who may be on similar journeys. These are stories about Me, You and things we did together. That’s how Me and You became US and how our stories came into existence. So, here’s the next step to finding out who we really are and the journeys that got Us here. I hope when You read my book it enlightens your journey. Enjoy!

He has never stopped searching for her, believing that finding her would bring him the peace he needs to move on. However, Holder could not have anticipated that he would be faced with even greater pain the moment they reconnected.

O.P. Pym, the colossal Pym, that vast and rolling figure, who never knew what he was to write about until he dipped grandly, an author in such demand that on the foggy evening which starts our story his publishers have had his boots removed lest he slip thoughtlessly round the corner before his work is done, as was the great man's way—shall we begin with him, or with Tommy, who has just arrived in London, carrying his little box and leading a lady by the hand? It was Pym, as we are about to see, who in the beginning held Tommy up to the public gaze, Pym who first noticed his remarkable indifference to female society, Pym who gave him——But alack! does no one remember Pym for himself? Is the king of the Penny Number already no more than a button that once upon a time kept Tommy's person together? And we are at the night when they first met!

People long for reality in their walk with Christ. To attain that heartfelt need, Adrian Plass in his profound but endearing style engages with three deeply significant aspects of Jesus - how he is safe, tender and extreme. The safety we find in Jesus is only discovered at a price, which may be suffering or the witnessing of suffering. Jesus himself was able to battle through the agony of Gethsemane because at the deepest level he was safe in the love of his Father. And he also knew that obedience is the surest path to ultimate security. Are we able to embrace the safety of Jesus? The tenderness of Jesus can be one of the most life-sustaining things of creation. We can see it in the people around us and we can see it in the Bible, such as in accounts of Jesus himself, especially his dealings with the widow of Nain. Many people may find it difficult to receive the tenderness of God, but, like Peter confronted with his rooftop vision, we may be called to a new understanding and a fresh revelation. Do we experience the tenderness of Jesus? The extreme Jesus was actually, from a divine perspective, not extreme at all. After all, Jesus only ever did what he saw his Father doing. Some of his behaviour may seem trivial or mundane to us while other actions appear dramatic, such as clearing out the temple with a knotted rope, asserting that a dying girl was actually asleep and would soon be awake, or being extremely rude to important people. All of his actions reveal his total commitment to obedience. Whatever needed to be done would be done, regardless of how it would appear to human eyes. Is Jesus the solid ground on which our feet stand? With him at the centre of our lives are we willing and able to be extreme for God in the big and little and mild and dramatic and banal and bizarre acts of service that are required of us? Each of the three sections is accompanied by personal experiences of encountering Jesus, safe, tender and extreme, some of them very raw indeed, and th
