Will moving to a small Montana town keep her daughter safe?
Samantha Deveaux and her eight-year-old daughter, Audie, move to Choteau so she can take her first teaching job. The small town on the Rocky Mountain Front is only a temporary stop, and she intends to stay a stranger, so nothing can lead her ex, a man just released from prison in Tennessee, to track her down.
The town embraces her and Audie, her daughter's teachers and classmates providing care and compassion for the girl with Asperger's. The church community is warm and welcoming, the hub of many rural small towns. Samantha settles in and makes friends, including rancher Jarod Beck.
But Jarod is focused on running the family ranch and building a rodeo training business, and Samantha discovers her ex isn't going to give up the search for his daughter. A disagreement about a horse puts a further wedge between Samantha and Jarod.
Her dream of a miracle to guide her to a new life is dashed. Now she has to face reality or put her daughter in danger. Or is there another possibility?
A warm and touching story about learning to trust again. If you enjoy contemporary women's fiction with strong characters and a dramatic setting, then you'll love Finding Home.
Fate brought Samantha to Choteau, Montana and Jarod Beck. Will that same fate tear her away?
Dragons can be dangerous …
… if you don’t bond with them first.
Eldwin wants to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Dragon Guard, but not for the glory. With his family dead and their lands dying, the opportunity to join the dragon rider school is all he has. But before Eldwin can bond with a dragon and guard the skies, he must pass three tests to prove his worth.
Compassion, magical aptitude, and armed combat.
He’s determined to pass, but his maimed arm is a constant reminder of his disadvantage. Will the obstacles Eldwin faces keep him from reaching his dreams, or will he finally see what it’s like to ride the skies?

Whether the threat comes from accursed artefacts, supernatural villains, or deadly rituals, there is always some unknowable evil lurking around the corner waiting to pounce.Ranging from the efforts of classic literary writers like Mary Shelley and Robert Louis Stevenson to pulp icon H. P. Lovecraft, these masters of the dark arts knew how to create suspense and an impending sense of dread.Horror fiction found its first connoisseurs amongst the Victorian public. This collection features several of its most accomplished pioneers.Short stories from Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein, Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula, and Robert Louis Stevenson, the author of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, show that some of the 19th century's most revered horror novelists could provide equally terrifying experiences in a shorter form.Other authors such as H. P. Lovecraft, William Hope Hodgson, Pearl Norton Swet, and M. P. Shiel established themselves in the emerging pulp magazines of America in the early 20th century. There, they mastered their craft and provided terrifying thrills for an audience eager for a new type of fiction. Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom and Ireland, writers like Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, E. F. Benson, and M. R. James mastered the classic ghost story.And who can forget Edgar Allan Poe?

His parents were recently killed by a drunk driver, and now, he's forced to run the family's corporation. There's only one problem. He has zero business experience. He's dreading the upcoming funeral for his parents, but when he learns that his longtime friend Brienne Warhol is coming, it makes him feel just a little better. She's attending Columbia Law School, but when she hears about his parents, she knows she has to be with him.
He went to college locally and missed Brienne's friendship when she left for New York. She fantasizes about him constantly, but he thinks of her only as "one of the guys." When she finally graduates from law school, they meet up for a celebratory glass of champagne.
She has too much to drink, and before she can stop herself, she kisses him. Her head is spinning, and after he looks at her like she crossed the line, she feels sick. She wishes she could take back that damn kiss.
Did Brienne ruin her chances of a romantic relationship with Alexander, the only man she's ever wanted in her life, or did her "move" spark something inside him that he's never felt before?
