DESCRIPTION:

Bobby Carroll has overcome a gambling scandal to resuscitate his career as a college basketball coach when a star recruit, Kevin Murphy, is found dead shortly after receiving a recruiting visit from Carroll. When the police, led by a nemesis from his gambling days, call him in for questioning, Carroll turns to his friend and college teammate Dan Gold, formerly a federal prosecutor who was instrumental in keeping Carroll out of jail during the gambling scandal, and now a civil litigator at a mid-sized Chicago firm. Gold’s dual background in civil and criminal law proves to be invaluable when Murphy’s mother opts to file a civil action against Carroll before the criminal investigation is complete. This development leaves Gold and his legal team fighting a two front legal battle, while Carroll continues to coach his basketball team amidst call for his suspension, internal scandals, and the sudden re-emergence of an old relationship.

While Gold tries to balance the need for a thorough investigation against his client’s desire for a speedy resolution, he discovers that many who were close to Murphy and/or involved in his recruitment have personal secrets to hide, and that Murphy may have know about them. The secrets provided ample motivation to those individuals to silence Murphy. When Gold follows the evidentiary trail, he encounters stunning betrayals and experiences personal danger. Eventually, Gold uncovers shocking truths about who was responsible for Murphy’s death, the reason that it happened, and the secrets which the killer and others sought to conceal. He must then decide what to do with what he has learned while balancing his legal, ethical and moral responsibilities with his loyalty to a friend and client.

Set against the backdrop of a sport awash in billion dollar television contracts, multi-million dollar salaries for coaches and professional players, and kickbacks to agents and boosters, Second Chances explores the consequences of a corrupt and secretive culture where everyone is susceptible to the lure of fame and fortune…and also to the threat that their secrets and machinations will be revealed.

DESCRIPTION:

“I have sworn twice in my life I would no longer touch you, Ara. And I have attempted it twice. But I am not a man that can stand by that particular vow.”

She prayed for death.
Stolen from her home, sold for her innocence, all Ara Detton wanted was death. One man stood in her way, Caine Farlington. Ara is forced to survive, forced to rebuild her life. A life that is orderly, busy–with a destiny that is her own. All would be perfect, if not for having to hide her love for the man that once saved her. The man that forced her to live, to survive, to flourish.

He refuses to let her go.
In search of his missing betrothed, Caine Farlington, the Earl of Newdale, quite by accident, saves Ara from the worst possible fate. Six years later, Ara is an indispensable part of his life–even if he has to curb his need to touch her at every turn.

The one you love is not always the one you think you need.
Neither one of them is prepared to let the other go. But to remain together, both must find redemption and learn to forgive secrets of the past.

Note: The Lords of Action books are each stand-alone stories, and can be read individually in any order. These historical romances are set in the Regency and Victorian eras, and do not shy away from naughty language, scenes with steamy heat, and moments that might possibly make you squirm.

DESCRIPTION:

A powerful drug lord threatens to bring America to its knees.
Only one man can stop him.

Two years ago, Secret Service Agent Matthew Richter faced the most difficult decision of his life, knowing that by saving the former, the latter would die. In the aftermath, he fled Washington and the agency that failed him. With wounds he’s certain will never heal, he seeks refuge behind a gun as the commander of an FBI SWAT team in New York. After a raid turns sour and Richter is sidelined, possibly for good, he is reluctantly drawn back to Washington by the man he once saved.

When drug cartels threaten to topple the Mexican government and the violence begins to spill across the border, Richter tells President David Kendall it’s time to take off the gloves. One by one, cartel warehouses and tunnels are raided and their drug caches destroyed. One by one, their sprawling compounds and bank accounts are seized. One by one, drug lords are targeted and killed. One by one–all except, that is, for Pablo Guerrero, the ruthless head of the Sangre Negras cartel, who has only grown stronger as others have fallen.

When the hunt for Guerrero finally draws first blood, he unleashes a war no one is prepared for. Now Richter must stop him before it’s too late.

An Eye For An Eye is the action-packed sequel to In Sheep’s Clothing, L.D. Beyer’s gripping debut novel.

DESCRIPTION:

I was about six years old and a bit feisty. Some things never change. My mama was fussing at me–so I decided to run away. Mama saw me packing a suitcase and asked what I was doing. “I’m running away,” I told her. She informed me that it was probably for the best since she was so mean and all. She only had one condition: I was not allowed to take anything that she or my daddy had bought for me. We went through my Hello Kitty suitcase together and removed all such items–which left me with nothing, not even a suitcase.

Mama cleared her throat and said, “Those shoes . . . we bought them . . . and the socks . . . and the shorts . . . and the shirt . . . oh, and those panties.” Butt-naked, with my hand on my hip, I grabbed the lip gloss I had purchased with my own money and marched right out the door. I hopped on my bike, which was a gift from my godparents, and rode down the street to our music minister and his wife’s house. I told them how my mama had taken away everything I owned but my lip gloss and my bicycle. I asked them if I could live with them. –Emily Bray, 38 years old, Memory Project Participant

Little Cabin on the Trail inspires folks to assign great value to their seemingly insignificant memories and encourages them to use those memories to become their family storytellers. Personal stories give everyone permission to pause and consider that there really is a bigger picture, an eternal picture, where past, present, and future generations are linked, not only through their blood, but through their stories. Little Cabin on the Trail will certainly entertain readers with its view into one very ordinary family’s life; but more importantly, it will help them to realize that they, too, have stories just begging to be told–better stories . . . because they are theirs.

Available through May 25 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

Designed to be read on a color device (as most of the questions ask about red, blue, yellow, and other colors). This math workbook from the Dr. Pi Squared Math Workbooks series aims to teach what a fraction is and help kids visualize fractions. It is designed for kids who are just learning about fractions. The problems consist of colorful pictures from which kids are to determine fractions. The book begins with circles cut into pie slices, from halves to twelfths. The students need to determine what fraction of each pie is blue, yellow, and red. For example, if a pie is divided into fourths, two of which are blue, one yellow, and the other red, the student would answer one-half, one-fourth, and one-fourth. After ample practice with pie slices, the workbook moves onto triangles, squares, and hexagons. A couple of pages include groups of circles where kids need to determine fractions greater than one – for example, two and a half circles might be colored green. Other visual fraction problems include rectangles, smiley faces, arrows, letters, and numbers. Toward the end of the workbook, some questions ask about more than just colors – like what fraction of the arrows point up, or what fraction of the letters are vowels. Answers are nicely organized through footnotes to allow students, parents, or teachers to quickly check the answers.

DESCRIPTION:

“A thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.”—Stephen King
 
You followed The Passage. You faced The Twelve. Now enter The City of Mirrors for the final reckoning. As the bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale, Justin Cronin’s band of hardened survivors await the second coming of unspeakable darkness.
 
The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place?
 
The Twelve have been destroyed and the terrifying hundred-year reign of darkness that descended upon the world has ended. The survivors are stepping outside their walls, determined to build society anew—and daring to dream of a hopeful future.
 
But far from them, in a dead metropolis, he waits: Zero. The First. Father of the Twelve. The anguish that shattered his human life haunts him, and the hatred spawned by his transformation burns bright. His fury will be quenched only when he destroys Amy—humanity’s only hope, the Girl from Nowhere who grew up to rise against him.
 
One last time light and dark will clash, and at last Amy and her friends will know their fate.
 
Advance praise for The City of Mirrors
 
“Justin Cronin’s Passage trilogy is remarkable for the unremitting drive of its narrative, for the breathtaking sweep of its imagined future, and for the clear lucidity of its language.”—Stephen King

“Superb . . . This conclusion to bestseller Cronin’s apocalyptic thriller trilogy ends with all of the heartbreak, joy, and unexpected twists of fate that events in The Passage and The Twelve foreordained.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Readers who have been patiently awaiting the conclusion to Cronin’s sweeping postapocalyptic trilogy are richly rewarded with this epic, heart-wrenching novel. . . . Not only does this title bring the series to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion, but it also exhibits Cronin’s moving exploration of love as both a destructive force and an elemental need, elevating this work among its dystopian peers.”Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for Justin Cronin
 
“One of those rare authors who work on two different levels, blending elegantly crafted literary fiction with cliff-hanging thrills.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

She’s determined to fight his decision every step of the way, but hatred and anger are not the only feelings she has toward him. The longer she’s held captive, the more she sees in the charismatic and powerful Xander. And now she has a big decision to make: stand by her principles and fight for her freedom, or yield to the demands of her body and love the only man who’s ever reached her heart.

DESCRIPTION:

“Patrick Redmond weaves an intriguing tale of bigotry, religion, murder, and personal redemption in small-town America. He has the authentic voice of a born storyteller.”
Jonathan Odell, author of Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League

Some Go Hungry is a charming, well-paced, and thoroughly humane love story about a young gay man coming to terms with himself, his family, and the insular community in which the family’s restaurant has been central for more than forty years.”
Susan Scarf Merrell, author of Shirley

Part of Akashic’s Kaylie Jones Books imprint.

Some Go Hungry is a fictional account drawn from the author’s own experiences working in his family’s provincial Indiana restaurant–and wrestling with his sexual orientation–in a town that was rocked by the scandalous murder of his gay high school classmate in the 1980s.

Now a young man who has embraced his sexuality, Grey Daniels returns from Miami Beach, Florida, to Fort Sackville, Indiana, to run Daniels’ Family Buffet for his ailing father. Understanding that knowledge of his sexuality may reap disastrous results on his family’s half-century-old restaurant legacy–a popular Sunday dinner spot for the after-church crowd–Grey struggles to live his authentic, openly gay life. He is put to the test when his former high school lover–and fellow classmate of the murdered student–returns to town as the youth pastor and choir director of the local fundamentalist Christian church.

Some Go Hungry is the story of a man forced to choose between the happiness of others and his own joy, all the while realizing that compromising oneself–sacrificing your soul for the sake of others–is not living, but death.
