A science fiction romance.
His mission: Blend in with the humans. Save the cyborgs. And seduce the only woman he ever loved, without getting killed.
Cybernetic spy models are different from other humans turned machine. For one thing, they never completely lost touch with their humanity, or their memories. But retaining their identity doesn’t mean the military didn’t mess with their lives. Seth lost the woman he loved because of their web of lies. When the chance arises to make things right, he relies on his superior intellect—and irresistible charm—to prove his innocence, and make Anastasia his again.
Anastasia might possess upgraded parts and programming, but the scientists never could cure her of her biggest weakness, jealousy. The volatile emotion made her walk away from love once. Can she overcome it and recognize the truth? Or will she continue to let the military manipulate her emotional strings? [close]

Renowned naturalist and bestselling author Jane Goodall examines the critical role that trees and plants play in our world.
In her wise and elegant new book, Jane Goodall blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give readers a deeper understanding of the world around us.
Long before her work with chimpanzees, Goodall's passion for the natural world sprouted in the backyard of her childhood home in England, where she climbed her beech tree and made elderberry wine with her grandmother. The garden her family began then, she continues to enjoy today.
SEEDS OF HOPE takes us from England to Goodall's home-away-from-home in Africa, deep inside the Gombe forest, where she and the chimpanzees are enchanted by the fig and plum trees they encounter. She introduces us to botanists around the world, as well as places where hope for plants can be found, such as The Millennium Seed Bank, where one billion seeds are preserved. She shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth.
Looking at the world as an adventurer, scientist, and devotee of sustainable foods and gardening-and setting forth simple goals we can all take to protect the plants around us-Jane Goodall delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.

Many inside the company were eager to prove that Apple could be just as innovative as it had been under Jobs. Others were painfully aware of the immense challenge ahead. As its business has become more complex and global, Apple has come under intense scrutiny, much of it critical. Maintaining market leadership has become crucial as it tries to conquer new frontiers and satisfy the public’s insatiable appetite for “insanely great” products.View Details »
Based on over two hundred interviews with current and former executives, business partners, Apple watchers and others, Haunted Empire is an illuminating portrait of Apple today that offers clues to its future. With nuanced insights and colorful details that only a seasoned journalist could glean, Kane goes beyond the myths and headlines. She explores Tim Cook’s leadership and its impact on Jobs’s loyal lieutenants, new product development, and Apple’s relationships with Wall Street, the government, tech rivals, suppliers, the media, and consumers.
Hard-hitting yet fair, Haunted Empire reveals the perils and opportunities an iconic company faces when it loses its visionary leader. [close]Giveaway dates: Mar 01 - Mar 17, 201420 copies available, 241 people requestingCountries available: US

From the wrong side of the tracks...
Alyson Blake had learned early on that the only one she could depend on was herself. The only light in her life was a boy whom everyone agreed was destined for prison; but with his first kiss, he had set her soul on fire. Since the day the police dragged him away in handcuffs, she had managed to lead a quiet life, but when she attends an event fraught with mayhem, trouble resurfaces.
The one person she can’t forget...
Jamison Weston is the kind of guy dads load their shotguns for; endowed with a hot temper and a rap sheet as long as both tattooed arms. Known as “The Judge,” Jami’s hot temper, lethal fists, and cocky attitude have earned him respect and admiration both in and out of the ring. But just when he thinks he’s pummeled his past to death, Alyson Blake reenters his life.
Two paths collide…
After years of separation, Alyson is eager to reexplore the man who’s never left her thoughts, but for Jamison, she’s both the distraction he wants, but doesn’t need. As the two embark on a relationship that neither of them expected or bargained for, an outside threat closes in. When Alyson crosses the line of professionalism and takes her work home with her, her life is put in danger, leaving Jamison with no choice but to once again step in and become her protector.

Like the family itself, it continues to be a source of affection, disaffection and perplexity for him as he departs from it and returns to it over the years. The novel's title is derived from a passage in "Fern Hill" by Dylan Thomas, a poem that celebrates a youngster's joy in the experiences of country life. The novel recalls such joys but recounts as well the troubled circumstances from which such green and golden moments often must arise. Rob DeWalt, in his review for the SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN of the collection of stories in which a shorter version of MORNING SONGS first appeared, said of it: Robert Allan Richardson was raised in Iowa's fertile corn country and worked as a dairy association field man and as a carpenter in Wisconsin and Illinois. He is well versed in the language and the ways of rural America, and he uses them to memorable effect. His tales, set in the mid-and late-20th century, combine the joys and hardships of farm life, the politics of the day, and the advancement of agricultural technology. Richardson captures the Iowa landscape with strong sensual descriptions while exploring parent-child bonds from multiple emotional angles. Through his characters, the author lays bare various struggles, conflicts, desires, and reconciliations that occur within all families and romantic relationships, using the beauty of the natural world as his stage. A shorter version of MORNING SONGS, then called "The Singer But Not the Song" was first published in PROMPTINGS OF NECESSITY, a work that is no longer in print. Two new chapters have been added for this edition, which also includes a selection from its sequel, ANOTHER MUSIC, a novel that extends and deepens the story of the Sutherlands.

REVELATION is due to be released April 2014.
THE PHOENIX PROJECT: The United States is crumbling under the weight of the worst recession in decades, and The Reformation has been causing a stir. It started with promises of overthrowing the election under the premise of change. But change starts where we least expect it in Phoenix, a small lakefront town, hidden in the backwoods of upstate NY.
Andie's life is about to change forever. She thought making it home was the hard part, but much worse is to come. She needs to find her family, she needs to find out what's happening to her town, and she needs to find someone she can trust.
Andromeda Somers is recovering from her attempted escape out of the Phoenix District. While in exile she witnesses the dawn of a new age as hundreds of missiles descend up on the United States. This is the Reformation, the fracturing of society and the beginning of changes to come. Now the secret is out, more Districts exist and the Funding Entities have decided to unite these Districts through Andie. With all hopes of escape demolished, Andie fights to protect her daughter from whatever the Funding Entities have in store for their future.
REVELATION: Plucked from society, the Funding Entities had a plan for Andromeda Somers and Adam Waters. The ones who planned the Reformation were priming them for a greater role. One that Adam will never live to realize. He knew too much and now he’s dead, leaving Andie to raise their baby alone. But not all is lost; the Entities want Andie to uphold the principles of the Phoenix District, so they’ve released Ian to her. The only problem is Andie’s not sure what to do with her husband now that she has him, especially since there is a seemingly insurmountable rift in their relationship. They can’t talk, they don’t touch, and it seems Ian is always sneaking off in the middle of the night. He’s definitely not the husband she remembers. But Andie has changed also; she’s done things she’s not proud of, she altered the human genome for Burton Crane, she had an affair, she even killed a man.
Now, Andie struggles with her guilt as she tries to raise the next generation of Sovereign and fulfill her duties as the District Matchmaker. Sam is training to become a Volker, Ian keeps pressing her to go back to the way they were, Catalina is getting older, and Raven has never uttered a sound since his birth. As Andie tries to maintain control and protect her family, one thought lingers and threatens to disrupt everything she’s worked so hard to protect: she must return to Crystal River for her last test, and Crane always causes the most havoc when she’s away.

More importantly, it embodies hope that not all is lost, that there is a “narrative” which can begin to put America back on track, render government again of the people, by the people, and for the people. [close]

As the sister of the Kjallan emperor, Celeste cannot choose where to bestow her heart....
The imperial princess has been offered in marriage to the Prince of Inya as part of an alliance needed to ensure Kjall’s military prowess. And despite having been hurt in the past by men using her to gain power, Celeste finds herself falling for the passionate fire mage.
Prince Rayn has no intention of allying his country with the militaristic Kjallans. But his political enemies at home may be the greater threat. The princess’s beauty and intelligence catch him off guard, throwing an unexpected and dangerous hurdle in the way of his plans.
As a deadly political plot threatens Rayn’s life, the attraction between Celeste and Rayn ignites into a sizzling affair. But to save her people and herself, Celeste will have to discover if Rayn’s intentions are true or risk having her love burn her yet again.

Stories for Ears to Hear: A Reimagining of the Parables of Jesus

This is a unique, modern retelling of the well-known parables (the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son)that aims to unlock the ancient stories in a fresh way.
When asked a question like "Who is my neighbor?", Jesus often answered with a story. He did this because humans often see themselves in stories better than they do in direct answers. For instance, the universal situation of rescuing someone who is in desperate need on the side of the road somewhere, far from home, resonates with people down through the ages.
In Stories for Ears to Hear, Tincan Caldwell puts a modern spin on the parables of Jesus in an attempt to help the reader imagine what the heart of these stories would look like today. In his famous challenge before telling a parable, Jesus would encourage "those with ears to hear" to listen to his tales of prodigal sons, lost coins, victimized travelers on the road, and elaborate parties with no guests. In telling these stories, Jesus brought the sensibilities of heaven to the very real dusty highways and hills of his homeland.
In reimagining these classic parables (the parable of the good Samaritan set against the backdrop of the 9/11 tragedy, the parable of the unmerciful servant moved to a struggling record store, the parable of the talents reimagined in the world of a network reality show), Caldwell challenges readers to re-examine how heaven wants to invade the everyday stuff of life, like roads, parties, wayward sons, and the foundations we build our lives upon.
That makes for a great story any day. [close]
