Lost and Found (Growing Pains #1)

On the tail-end of her ex-boyfriend crashing through a restraining order and putting her in the hospital, Krista realizes that the only way to effectively escape her past is to put distance between it. She gets her life back on track in San Francisco with a job that has limitless potential.

Unfortunately, to achieve her dreams, she must brave the star of the company; a charming and handsome salesman that isn’t used to the word no. Krista tries to run from him at every turn, but his pull continually sucks her back in; her hesitancy to trust the only thing saving her from being another notch on a bedpost.

But when a geeky new hire stumbles through the company, befuddling him with a keen intellect he doesn’t expect, he starts to lose his way. Before he knows it, all his efforts are concentrated around trying to capture the interest of the only woman to run when he tries to deliver a line. As she opens up, so does he, landing him in a terrain as disconcerting as it is invigorating.

Shift:  Book One (The Spiritus Chronicles)

Waring angels and demons destroying the neighborhood? Sandy thinks a night of baby-sitting five-year-old Cassie, who reads Dickens, will be fun, and that maybe she can get to the bottom of Cassie’s nightmares and a secret the little girl is hiding. When an experimental weather-control device falls off the Navy jet carrying it and it crashes just blocks away up in the hills, it ramps up, out of control, and they awake to a massive storm and utter darkness. With the power outage, the only working radio Sandy can find is one that her dear departed husband had stored in a metal drum of survival gear in the garage.

Sandy and Cassie learn that there is an exodus to the local Police Station for shelter because their chunk of town has been taken someplace else by the faulty apparatus that has borne them away in a bubble of time and space where angels and demons, or something, are fighting in the sky and on the ground. Cassie thinks that’s what they are because that is what they resemble. Others believe they are aliens at war and they are helplessly marooned with them.

Meanwhile, the military aparatus is outside The Zone attempting to undo the damage, even as virtually every branch of the Federal Government decends upon the coastal community of Ventura, California.

Beyond the Pink Moon: A Memoir of Legacy, Loss and Survival (Special Edition)

In this touching, frank and informative memoir, Nicki Boscia Durlester intimately chronicles her transformational journey after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her story begins with her mother, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1962: a time when breast cancer was only discussed behind closed doors, and long before women took an active role in their diagnosis and treatment.

Nicki provides unique insight into being part of a large Italian-American family afflicted with the BRCA2 gene, and shares poignant stories about her mother and aunts who faced breast and ovarian cancer with extraordinary grace and courage.

Nicki writes candidly about her frustration in finding the right team of doctors as well as the highs and lows of her journey, sharing humor and heart along the way. She puts a human face on statistics ranking breast cancer as the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women in the United States.

This deeply moving story of legacy, loss and ultimately survival is told through the eyes of a daughter who shared an unbreakable bond with her mother. As she travels the scary, unpredictable road through her own diagnosis, treatment and recovery, Nicki discovers the most difficult challenge she faces becomes the most spiritually transcendent experience of her life.

Truth or dare?
Good English families all have a house in the country with a deer park, a trout stream, and an army of gardeners. They should have a son and if it can be managed, he should be handsome.

Sick of her outcast role, she escapes her father’s house, only to fall from her horse during a spring storm. Injured, soaked, and shivering, she stumbles to a stranger’s door—Tom, a blunt edged merchant from a family of vulgar upstarts. Mistaking Sophy for the genuine article, he takes her in.
Sophy can’t resist twisting the truth. Soon she’s caught in her own snare—and it might just be a noose.
