There’s a fine line between love . . . and obsession

Promising law student Elizabeth Watson struggled her entire life to claw out of her dirt-poor background. And now the thing she’s dreamed of, an associate position at her law firm, is within reach.

Men Who Killed the Luftwaffe: The U.S. Army Air Forces Against Germany in World War II

By LtCol (Ret) Jay A. Stout / Genre: Germany, Europe, History / Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (29 reviews)

Men Who Killed the Luftwaffe: The U.S. Army Air Forces Against Germany in World War II

In order to defeat Germany in World War II, the Allies needed to destroy the Third Reich’s industry and invade its territory, but before they could effectively do either, they had to defeat the Luftwaffe, whose state-of-the-art aircraft and experienced pilots protected German industry and would batter any attempted invasion. This difficult task fell largely to the U.S., which, at the outset, lacked the necessary men, materiel, and training. Over the ensuing years, thanks to visionary leadership and diligent effort, the U.S. Army Air Force developed strategies and tactics and assembled a well-trained force that convincingly defeated the Luftwaffe.

The Kindling Heart [2nd Edition] (The Highland Heather and Hearts Scottish Romance Series)

(Scotland, 1478) – Ruan MacLeod was through with women. They were nothing but trouble.

Leaving the rash life of his youth behind, he returned to Skye, seeking peace. He never meant to split the clan or start a war with the MacDonald of Duntulm. He certainly never foresaw an arranged marriage to the most scandalous woman in Scotland. Even though she was twice his age, the size of a horse and mother to more than one illegitimate child, he agreed to secure his sister’s freedom.

However, even that plan goes drastically awry. On his wedding day, he finds himself faced instead with an enticing, green-eyed lass named Bree. A walking disaster, his bride immediately turns his world into chaos and threatens to melt his resolve never to love again.

Betrayed by her own mother, Bree flees to Skye, thinking only to reunite with her long, lost father. Instead, she finds herself wed to Ruan MacLeod as a replacement bride. When she is forced to remain in the castle, she is soon caught between brothers and the mentally ill wife of the laird.

Shy, yet strong, Bree embarks on a journey of independence and learns along the way that all men are not necessarily evil. In fact, one particularly brooding, yet gentle-hearted warrior is worthy of love, and she soon loses her heart forever.
