*No P.O. Boxes Please
London's most scandalous bachelor has finally gone too far. Caught in a situation that was innocent but too compromising, James Simpson is forced to admit that he must do the honorable thing and marry the lady. Unfortunately, marriage alone will not be enough to appease her father. He won't agree to a dowry unless James can find a suitable husband for the lady's elder sister-the shy and awkward Lucinda Cardington.
Lucinda doesn't care that she is close to being "on the shelf"; she has more serious pursuits in mind. She enjoys the friendship she and James share over their love of photography, but she leaves dreams of romance to silly young ladies like her sister. James does manage to find a match for Lucinda, and his efforts to get them together are about to succeed...until James comes to the distressing realization that he doesn't want Lucinda in anyone's arms but his own [close]

There’s a war going on around us, a war that most of us are totally unaware of. And sometimes a simple request to God can turn your world upside down, confronting you with powers that you never imagine existed.
Pastor Harris Borden asked God to be used in a bigger way, and God listened to him. Now Borden’s running for his life, accused of being a terrorist by the U.S. government, thrown off buildings, stabbed, imprisoned and left for dead more times than he can count. They blew up the plane his wife was on, evil powers surround his church and community, and through it all, Pastor Borden continues to ask himself, Am I truly willing to surrender everything to God?
In the spirit of Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness, The Champion reminds us that we are not alone in this world, and that God never promises that following will be easy, or safe. [close]

"Orphan's Song introduces us to a new world with mythical beasts, talking animals, heroes in hiding, a single survivor of hunted race, an evil regime, and a godly weapon. Need I say anything more?" (reader's review)
"Adams writes in a fresh, imaginative, and descriptive style. Her main characters are quirky and lovable (and sometimes hate-able!), and - most importantly - believable." (reader's review)
In a world woven by a melody and shattered by discord, a girl discovers that her song contains a far greater power than she could ever have imagined. A power that a ruthless soldier and his evil master seek to possess. A power that her guardian wants silenced.
When Birdie's song draws the attention of a dangerous Khelari soldier, she is kidnapped and thrust into a world of ancient secrets and betrayals. Rescued by her old friend, traveling peddler Amos McElhenny, Birdie flees the clutches of her enemies in pursuit of the truth behind the Song’s power.
Ky is a street–wise thief and a member of the Underground—a group of orphans banded together to survive . . . and to fight the Khelari. Haunted by a tragic raid, Ky joins Birdie and Amos in hopes of a new life beyond the reach of the soldiers.
But the enemy is closing in, and when Amos’ shadowed past threatens to undo them all, Birdie is forced to face the destiny that awaits her as the Songkeeper of Leira. Book one of the Songkeeper Chronicles.
