Fall in love with the first book in Debbie Macomber's Deliverance Company series featuring a romance between a mercenary and a widow inexplicably drawn together. Cain McClellan had chosen his lifestyle. He thrived on the challenge, the rush that came with putting his life in incredible danger. No woman, he told himself, could make him feel the way he did after a successful mission—no matter how beautiful she was. So why was he standing on a cold pier like a lovelorn teenager, hoping for a glimpse of Linette Collins? But then he saw her, and the sight of her took his breath away. The wind whipped her lustrous dark hair about her face, and she lifted a finger to wrap a thick strand behind her ear. The smart thing to do was turn around and walk away as fast as his feet would carry him. He'd gotten what he wanted. One last look at her. His curiosity should be satisfied. But even as his mind formulated the thought, Cain knew that just seeing Linette again could never be enough

Give hope to children in troubling times. In these times of the coronavirus aka covid19 taking over everything, causing illness, death, and more, and mass shutdowns occurring throughout the known world, kids are as troubled as anyone else with the new world order. There is no school, no friends, no family, no trips to the store - every part of their lives except for the home has shut down. Using this book you can lightly joke about having to stay at home - while maintaining the necessity - all the while still transmitting the important message that this is just temporary. Through this light and irreverent tale, different kids ask to visit different family members, only to be reminded - we can't do that right now, but we will be able to again soon! Even just acknowledging the difficulty of the situation with your child will make it easier. Allowing children to express themselves, and letting them know it is okay to do so, can help with difficult times as well. Hopefully this helps YOUR child as well, learn to take the situation seriously while also being able to move past it. Give your kids the gift of HOPE. Give your kids the gift of knowing this situation is only temporary - even when we don't know how long it will last. (04/21/2020) About the storyline: Ari Gunzburg's 3 year old daughter has silly and sweet ways of discussing the coronavirus - even just the way she pronounces the word is adorable. Here are a few: "Sweetie, we are going to the store!" "Like, for real going, mommy?" "Oh no, sweetie, we are staying in the car. Because of the coronavirus." "Mommy, can I see my friends again soon?" "No sweetie." "Oh, because of the coronavirus?" "Yes dear." "Bubbie! Can I have an air hug?" [she squeezes her arms together, and so does Bubbie] "Mommy watch out! I'll give you the coronavirus!" [said while licking a finger and holding it out at her, because she didn't want to do something] [and no, she hasn't had it as far as we know] From the author: Nana and Grampy are lightly modeled after my own grandparents, my Nana, may she live and be well, and my Grampy, may he rest in peace. Grampy was a character, originally from Boston (Bah-stin), with a whole lot of "attitude" to lightly mask his abundant love for his large family. Grampy gave everyone a bit of a hard time, but this was the way he showed his love and affection.

From USA Today Bestselling author Tiffany King Seventeen year old Katelyn Richards is a stronger person than anyone will ever know, and that is just the way she wants it. Behind her normal facade lies the reality of a broken home life. Thanks to her abusive mother, a string of deadbeat stepfathers, and an unsympathetic system, Katelyn has learned that the only one she can count on is herself. Her life's mission has become to shield her nine year old brother, Kevin, and to give him the future that they both wish for. A life with no more abuse, no worries about where their next meal will come from, and no more wondering if they will have a roof over their heads. When her mother moves them again, this time to a small town in Montana, Katelyn's resolve is shaken when she meets Max, a cute boy from her new school, who gets a glimpse into her real world. Max slowly manages to break through Katelyn's wall of distrust, stirring up feelings she never saw coming. Now with her world more complicated than she ever intended, Katelyn struggles with the decision to follow her heart into the arms of the first boy she has ever loved. A decision that could risk the promise she made to protect Kevin, and to give them the 'someday soon' that is so close within their grasp.

Someday I'm going to fly through the air. Someday I'd like to visit a fair. Someday I'll learn to tie my own shoe. Someday I hope to visit the zoo. Someday you could chase me around and Someday I'll hide and wait to be found. Someday maybe you'll buy me a pet. Someday I could be a vet! Is there anything more exciting to children than imagining the opportunities that will come their way in life? Or the joys and wonders that await them around every corner? They are our enduring safeguards of hope, clear-eyed seers of the limitless possibilities of the future, and most importantly, believers that they can indeed do it all. Somehow, as we grow older, we often lose that quality, trapped in the limited thinking of logic and reason. And in this day and age, with children growing up faster than ever, maturing at a rate unheard of in recorded history, savoring that unbridled optimism is the greatest gift any child can receive-and every parent can give. A simple, sweet, and imaginative tale full of hope and wonder, Tanya Ferguson's debut is a treasure trove of loving thoughts and heartening words that will open your child's mind to life's possibilities-and remind you to revel in their unbridled enthusiasm. From the small lessons in life such as learning to tie a shoe or going to the zoo to knowing that visiting the moon is a realistic wish, the possibilities and simple joys of life help young ones connect that all of these thoughts are one in the same-none more or less realistic than the other. And for parents? The added joy of spending time with their most important someone, eyeing in amazement the extraordinary illustrations and expanding dreams that fill the spaces in their child's imagination is the rarest of all gifts. And most important for both parent and child is the final refrain, a reminder for youngsters that everything is imminently within their reach and for parents to cherish each moment: Someday I'll sing you a tune, and between you and me, that someday will be soon. Both a reminder to parents to treasure the youth of their children and an encouraging story that teaches young ones that their future is limitless, Ferguson's sweet poem and its wonderfully evocative accompanying images is the perfect bedtime companion. Rhythmic and soothing, it teaches to expand the imagination while taking delight in the simplest of victories. A must-have for parents interested in broadening their young one's view of the possibilities life holds, Someday Soon is the perfect lullaby for a fitful night of sweet dreams.

But now, a corrupt band of mercenaries, once thought to be extinguished, present their greatest threat yet to the fate of the colonies and humanity at large.
