USA Today Bestseller “Fall in love with Jill Shalvis! She’s my go-to read for humor and heart.”— Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis begins a new series—Sunrise Cove—set near beautiful Lake Tahoe, with a heartwarming story of found family and love. During the snowstorm of the century Levi Cutler is stranded on a ski lift with a beautiful stranger named Jane. After strong winds hurl the gondola in front of them into the ground, Levi calls his parents to prepare them for the worst…but can’t bring himself to say goodbye. Instead, wanting to fulfill his mother’s lifelong wish, he impulsively tells her he’s happily settled and Jane is his girlfriend—right before his phone dies. But Levi and Jane do not. Now Levi’s family is desperate to meet “The One.” Though Jane agrees to be his pretend girlfriend for just one dinner, she’s nervous. After a traumatic childhood, Jane isn’t sure she knows how to be around a tight-knit family that cherishes one another. She’s terrified, and a little jealous. But an unexpected series of events and a host of new friends soon show Jane that perhaps this is the life she was always meant to have. As Jane and Levi spend more time together, pretend feelings quickly turn into real ones. Now all Jane has to do is admit to herself she can’t live without the man she’s fallen in love with and the family she has always dreamed of.

50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is a heroic story of friendship and belonging. Cover may vary. No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far. The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published.

Sophie Marren spent her entire life trying to please everyone, from her distant father to her demanding husband, nearly losing herself in the process. But after discovering she was the only person in her marriage to have taken their vows seriously, Sophie walks away with nothing except for the boat she got in the divorce settlement -- hardly the ideal living arrangement for a woman who gets seasick in a bathtub. She knows she should sell it, move, and leave the whole mess behind her, but . . . Sophie loves living in tiny Cedar Ridge, Colorado, and she's not about to let anyone take that from her, too. Especially not the handsome, intense former soldier who keeps trying to kick her off the dock of his lakeside cabin. As much as she wants to tell Jacob Kincaid to stick it where the sun don't shine, she senses he's dealing with struggles of his own, and she can't help being drawn in. But when secrets from her past resurface, will she be able to hold on to the life she's so carefully built?

Book Excerpt:

Family is a word that brings us together, supports us, and binds us together. It's like a single warm, comfortable nook. It's a place where we may express our happiness and grief. It resembles a nest. Because they are the people we relate to, family is the most important thing in the world. We are descended from our ancestors. From your great grandparents to your grandparents to your parents, they all contributed to your birth. Your mother carried you for nine months before giving birth to you in a difficult way. Your family is proud of you and loves you. The idea of a family as a single, inseparable entity is a delusion in and of itself. Allow us to broaden the definition of "family" to include not only one's blood relatives (such as father, mother, son, daughter, brother, and sister), but also a group of individuals who love, bond, and feel like a family. “Family: The Never Ending Support” is an anthology where you will dive into the tales of love for the family or the people who became the family. The book will make you understand the importance of having a family and will also make you remind of the beautiful memories, you might have had with your family.

Book Excerpt:

Concern and debate over changes to family life have increased in the last decade, as a result of evolving employment patterns, shifting gender relations and more openness about sexual orientation.

Book Excerpt:

This collection is meant for uplifting, bringing hope, guidance, and showing the way when it seems there is none. It is an eye-opener to the success that awaits the reader in a life full of challenges and in tunnels that seem to have no light. It is not only motivational but basis its content on the Christian values that can be traced to the Word of God in the Bible that assures those with a broken heart, the sick, and the lost that there is a way to escape all the trials and tribulations of this world. Psalms 30 says we have our Lord Almighty watching over us. He lifted us out of depths and did not let our enemies gloat over us. He brought us from the grave and spared us from going down into the pit. His anger lasts for a moment, but his favor lasts for a lifetime. Psalms 30:5 clearly defines the message these poems carry and is the title to this book.
