New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst brings her signature witty, sexy, heartfelt style to the romances in the wildly popular Searching For series! In Searching for Someday, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best friends. But Kate’s more than a savvy businesswoman: She’s gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love’s magic is at work. When Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered—and hot-bodied—divorce lawyer storms into Kinnections demands proof that playing Cupid won’t destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate’s newest client, the only way to convince this cynic that she’s no fraud is for Kate to meet his challenge: find his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her attraction nearly knocks her off her feet? Searching for Perfect tells the story of another Kinnection’s founder, Kennedy Ashe. A coach and cheerleader rolled into one sizzling package, Kennedy creates dream dates, encourages singles to shine, and never refuses a challenge—not even her new client, Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle, nerd extraordinaire. Kennedy vows to transform this hot mess into the most wanted man on the dating scene. When she realizes she and Nate are cut from the same cloth and might be perfect together, can Kennedy learn to let her heart lead the way?

A fascinating portrait of the Standard Oil heirerss and legendary American trendsetter Millicent Rogers Nobody knew how to live the high life like Millicent Rogers. Born into luxury, she lived in a whirl of beautiful homes, European vacations, exquisite clothing and handsome men. In Searching for Beauty, Cherie Burns chronicles Rogers's glittering life from her days as a young girl afflicted with rheumatic fever to her debutante debut and her Taos finale. A rebellious icon of the age, she eloped with a penniless baron, danced tangos in European nightclubs, divorced, remarried and romanced, among others, Clark Gable. Her romantic conquests, though, paled in comparison to her triumph in the fashion world where she electrified the fashionistas by becoming the muse to designer Charles James, appearing in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar and - at the end of her life - retreating to Taos, New Mexico where she popularized Southwestern style. With Searching for Beauty, Millicent Rogers enters the pantheon of great American women who, like Diana Vreeland and Babe Paley, put their distinctive stamp on American Style.

Many of Andrews writings present a perception that is a little off center, a different way of contemplating a thought or a verse. They are, in a way, reflections that are a little fractured and sometimes a little distorted. They provide for a different way of seeing things. Sometimes they generate consideration and enrichment of life, Scripture, and love.

The Diaries of Adam and Eve

"As one critic wrote about Searching for Eden: "In the beginning--and throughout the play--here was laughter. And the audience found it good." More than a hundred years after Mark Twain wrote his own short stories about Adam and Eve, James Still combines those stories for Act One of Searching for Eden, and then imagines Adam and Eve in the present day for Act Two to create this completely original and contemporary play about the world's first love story. Act One takes place at the dawn of time in the Garden of Eden. In the imaginations of Still and Twain, the Garden of Eden is a place where the battle of the sexes begins, where language is deliciously invented, and where loneliness and heartbreak are poignantly discovered. After intermission, we jump forward to the present day--but Adam and Eve have only aged into their 40s and are dealing with middle age and the distractions of high-power careers. Adam has surprised Eve with this trip back to Eden (a last-minute vacation package Adam found on the Internet) as an anniversary gift. The "first couple" returns to present-day Eden (now an upscale resort simply called "E") in an attempt to recapture the primal passions of their youth. While Act One is about childhood, discovery, and new love--Act Two is about middle age, rediscovery and trying to make old love new again. At its heart, Searching for Eden is about the pleasures and terrors of knowing one person--and being known by that person--for a long, long time."--Publisher's website.

A starry-eyed girl and a gruff suffragette decipher the myth of a dancer-turned-local-hero in this gorgeous novel from the author of Katerina’s Wish that Kirkus Reviews called “an engrossing, plausible story of several unlikely feminist heroines with a touch of romance and intrigue.” In her small Colorado town Pearl spends the summers helping her mother run the family café and entertaining tourists with the legend of Silverheels, a beautiful dancer who nursed miners through a smallpox epidemic in 1861 and then mysteriously disappeared. According to lore, the miners loved her so much they named their mountain after her. Pearl believes the tale is true, but she is mocked by her neighbor, Josie, a suffragette campaigning for women’s right to vote. Josie says that Silverheels was a crook, not a savior, and she challenges Pearl to a bet: prove that Silverheels was the kindhearted angel of legend, or help Josie pass out the suffragist pamphlets that Pearl thinks drive away the tourists. Not to mention driving away handsome George Crawford. As Pearl looks for the truth, darker forces are at work in her small town. The United States’s entry into World War I casts suspicion on German immigrants, and also on anyone who criticizes the president during wartime—including Josie. How do you choose what’s right when it could cost you everything you have?

My name is Dakota Stone, and I am a first time author who through the calling of God and my constant searching for God decided to write this story around my main character Joshua Stones three stage saga on his life's constant search to find a God he could both love and trust. As many of us, his life is filled with many trials and tribulations that constantly pull him towards God, and away from living for and with God. The story begins when he is a young boy who becomes obsessed with his strange and terrifying dreams that for him make no sense at all, and his friends and family only see him as a boy living in a fantasized dream world. All Joshua wants is to become a dynamic football star, and become rich and famous. During the second stage of his life he falls deep into sin, and all the ways of the world where he turns completely away, and even decides that he hates the very God who seems bent on still being the driving force in his life of sin. Finally after a span of about 15 years Joshua finally becomes a warrior for God, and he and his life long friend Caleb Rock are sent on a spectacular terrifying journey by God to change the ever present evil world that is under the hand of the nefarious rule of the Brotherhood of Man. I wrote this deep rooted and faith inspiring story in hopes that once again people of all ages would wipe the many layers of dust off their hidden Bibles, and begin to discover how lost their lives have become, because of the temptations of our fast passed world, and become encouraged that no matter how far you have fallen away from the tree of life that in God it is never to late. Jesus Christ, Yeshua our Savior said, "THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND, AND IT IS IN YOU!"

The Americanization of France

Searching for Happiness After the Algerian War

Category: History

This engaging, knowledgeable book traces the American path France has followed since resolving its searing Algerian conflict in 1962. Barnett Singer convincingly demolishes two pervasive clichés about modern France: first, that the country has never been fit to fight wars, including wars on terror; and second, that the French have always been and remain overwhelmingly anti-American. The end of the war led to an important sea change, clearing the way for France to embrace American culture, especially rock 'n' roll, and more generally, an American-style emphasis on personal happiness. The author argues that today's France, wounded by the loss of traditions and stability, is increasingly pro-American, clinging to trends from across the Atlantic as to a lifeline.
