In this dark and dangerous Texas small town, Annie Lakes' nightmares come alive when a cold case from her past reveals family secrets that put her life in jeopardy.
 
Annie Lakes has had the same recurring nightmare for years. Her heart pounding in her chest. A panicked voice, begging her to run faster. Her own bloodcurdling scream. But now Annie is starting to realize it's more than just a bad dream. She's starting to remember things about the night her cousin Jenny disappeared all those years ago. Things that make her believe her family was involved--and what they're hiding is much worse than she ever imagined. But she can't unravel this alone. She needs someone she can trust, someone like sexy Detective Mark Sutton ....
 
Mark has seen enough--too much--to assume that Annie's story is a dead end. It turns out that her family is hiding some killer secrets. A long time ago, Annie was just an innocent little girl who saw something she shouldn't. Now she's a target, and Mark's running out of time to protect the woman he's starting to fall for. But how does Mark face off against a murderer who just may be someone Annie loves?

A hot mess runaway bride and a smokin' hot biker lock eyes at a red light. Lord have mercy . . . is our little town of Charmed, Texas ready for this?

 

Never one to do things by the book, Micah Roman couldn't just chalk it up to bridal jitters, or even quietly call off her wedding to her long-time fiancé. No, she has to high-tail it out of the church sporting a dress that cost more than her car, and jump on the back of a smoking-hot stranger's motorcycle. Her knight in all-black is headed to a town called Charmed, so that's where she'll go and try to lay low. Except their appearance raises plenty of eyebrows . . . and a sudden, intense attraction she has no business exploring.

 

Who knew picking up a damsel in distress would lead to lust at first sight? Leo McKane headed to Charmed prepared to deal with some family secrets-including his status as long-lost brother. This runaway bride is an unexpected distraction his set agenda and loner lifestyle doesn't include. She's everywhere he turns, getting under his skin with her quirky, headstrong ways and eyes he can't forget. But when Micah's jilted ex comes looking for her and opens up his shady past, Leo knows he has a choice to make.

 

They both do.

 

Run to safer ground again? Or take a leap that their untrusting hearts are wary to take.

Gary the Go-Cart: Wind blows is a fun story, written in poetry with rhyme and cadence. It is illustrated by the late, great, award-winning Sidnei Marques. This book is educational, too, in that it compares Oil and Gas to Wind Energy in a way that even kids can understand at some level. Teenagers and adults will read it on a much deeper level.

Gary wants to go far and wants to go fast. He doesn't want to be slow like go-carts from the past. "Wind Blows" details Gary's adventures as he explores Wind Energy and compares it to Oil and Gas. You might be surprised by what he learns. Ms. Denson simplifies some rather complicated ideas about energy and makes them fun.

The Gary the Go-Cart series was written to balance the conversation surrounding energy and the environment.

Traveling under heavy guard, she has been sent from her castle home to avoid capture by the vicious nobleman known as the Wolf, who has vowed revenge against the Clan Kincaid, and any who support them. When a surprise attack leaves her vulnerable, Derryth ends up in the hands of an enemy warrior who claims her, with the Wolf’s blessing, as his prize. But her captor’s gentle words and touch seduce her heart—and body—completely. . . and when she discovers the tattoo on his arm that proves him to be the legendary, long-believed dead son of the murdered Laird of Kincaid, Derryth knows she must find a way to alter his fate—and her own. . .

Cull has no memory of his family or past—all he knows is the life of a warrior, trained to fight on behalf of the Scottish king. If he can help the king’s law officer of the North, the Wolf of Badenoch, defeat a rebellious faction of Highlanders, Cull will be met with untold riches beyond possessing beautiful, innocent Derryth. But now that she has informed him of who he really is—Cullen Braewick, the youngest son of the slain laird—he is torn. If Cull exacts revenge against the Wolf, who executed his father, he stands to lose the precious lass who he has come to love. What is he willing to sacrifice for Derryth to keep her safe. . .and in his arms?

Availability: In Stock at Our Warehouse - Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: WestBow Press - June 8th, 2018

Revelations is a result of years of disciplined study of Gods Word, a result of intimacy with Jesus, a result of intimate time in the Word from God, the Word in Carol and her in the Word. 
 

This devotion is a culmination of years of growth from private time spent daily in Gods presence allowing Jesus, the Word made flesh, to rule over the evil nature within, thus allowing the Word of God to be King and Lord. 
 

His work began in 1989 as Carol poured her heart out, quietly journaling and giving expression to her feelings, while being alone with the Word. With pen in hand and blank paper waiting, she gained revelation about evil's fleshly nature within, the principalities, powers, and rulers without, and about Jesus, the Word, Who is the Revealer of all Truth. 
 

From the feelings in her heart, to the thoughts in her mind, to where the pen met the paper, she gained discernment. By expressing her heart in light of the Word of Truth, with the Word of Truth filtering her thoughts and prayers, she discerned her way, aligned her heart and mind with Truth, lived life according to the Truth, and then learned how to pray a right prayer according to the Truth.

A lush, unique new fantasy trilogy about a girl tasked with stealing the prince’s heart…literally, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Lovely Vicious series.

 

Zera is a Heartless – the immortal, unageing soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger ever since she saved her from the bandits who murdered her family, Zera longs for freedom from the woods they hide in. With her heart in a jar under Nightsinger’s control, she serves the witch unquestioningly.

Until Nightsinger asks Zera for a Prince’s heart in exchange for her own, with one addendum; if she’s discovered infiltrating the court, Nightsinger will destroy her heart rather than see her tortured by the witch-hating nobles.

Crown Prince Lucien d’Malvane hates the royal court as much as it loves him – every tutor too afraid to correct him and every girl jockeying for a place at his darkly handsome side. No one can challenge him – until the arrival of Lady Zera. She’s inelegant, smart-mouthed, carefree, and out for his blood. The Prince’s honor has him quickly aiming for her throat.

So begins a game of cat and mouse between a girl with nothing to lose and a boy who has it all.

Winner takes the loser’s heart.

Literally.
