Summary

Ruth Byler has never failed at anything in her life, but Zach Bender is going to test the limits of her heart. 
A student at heart, Ruth is finally a teacher at the Amish schoolhouse. But after her first day, she wonders if she’s made a mistake. The students want nothing to do with learning. Deflated, she makes a promise to herself to not give up—not yet. 
When Zach comes to fix a repair at the schoolhouse, he notices the young Amish teacher and the disorderly students. After seeing enough, he storms into the classroom and demands the students show Ruth respect. Satisfied he's done a good deed, he waits around so Ruth can thank him. Instead she's furious he interfered. Zach leaves, thinking she's still the snobby, bookworm he knew from school. He doesn’t have much use for learning. And now he has little use for Ruth. 
There’s more to Zach’s story, and when Ruth finds out the truth to why he hated school, the consequences leave them seeing each other in a different light. Ruth can help Zach if he’ll let her. But to do so, he’ll need to offer her his hand.

    From New York Times bestselling author comes The Beautiful Pretender! 
    After inheriting his title from his brother, the margrave has two weeks to find a noble bride. What will happen when he learns he has fallen for a lovely servant girl in disguise? 
    The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble born ladies who meet the king’s approval to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test these ladies and reveal their true character. 
    Avelina has only two instructions: keep her true identity a secret and make sure the margrave doesn’t select her as his bride. Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught. No one must know she is merely a maidservant, sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea. 
    Despite Avelina’s best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can’t deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worse—far deadlier—consequences

    This the third volume of the Krsna in Vrndavan series is replete with the pastimes Lord Krsna manifested five thousand years ago. The focus of Krsna-sangati is how during these pastimes Krsna repeatedly leaves and then again meets the residents of Vrindavan. Devotees always want to meet Krsna, but to increase their bliss and their love He repeatedly separates from them. That is His mercy. However when the Lord and His pure devotees meet after extended periods of separation they both taste the happiness of samaddhimat-sambhoga. But whether in separation or meeting with Krsna, His associates always bathe in transcendental ecstasy.
    Sivarama Swami brilliantly weaves the different commentaries that the acaryas have written on Lord Krsna’s pastimes with verses from sastra into an absorbing transcendental narrative.
