Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working on a master's degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it's to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed . . . As crown prince of Lilaria, Alex D'Lynsal has had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures in the press have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She's stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone's front-page news. While Sam tries to navigate her new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

From Lynda La Plante, one of the world’s greatest crime writers, Royal Heist is a big, dashing novel of deception, passion, and international suspense, in which a man with a dangerous double life masterminds the greatest robbery of all time. With a beautiful family and a magnificent fortune, Edward de Jersey is making news with his prized racehorse Royal Flush. But while de Jersey socializes with the cream of English society, he keeps to himself the details of his background and how he acquired his wealth. The son of an East End bookie, de Jersey reinvented himself as an aristocrat after pulling off some of England’s most notorious heists. He has no intention of ever going back to crime . . . until his financial adviser loses his entire fortune in a disastrous investment and de Jersey decides to retrieve it the old-fashioned way: by stealing it. From Monaco to the Hamptons, from London to the shadowy back alleys of cyberspace, de Jersey goes into action, using guile, force, and the latest technology to put together the perfect plan. Drawing on the expertise of a computer hacker with a passion for Elvis, the inside knowledge of a dying aristocrat, and the skill of a professional impersonator, de Jersey is ready to commit his greatest and final crime. He’s going to steal the crown jewels from under the nose of the royals themselves. Now, as Royal Flush prepares for a spectacular run at the Derby, de Jersey faces his moment of truth: How much is he willing to risk to win the sport’s most coveted prize? And just how far will he go to get away with the perfect crime? A novel that builds to an amazing crescendo of suspense, Royal Heist is a glamorous and gritty tale of men and women bound together by love, greed, trust, and mistrust. With all the pounding excitement of a high-stakes horse race, this is fiction that takes hold, doesn’t let go, and dares us to keep guessing until the very end.

If Jesus is a Jew, why is there a wedge between Christianity and Judaism? If Jews and Christians both believe in the same God, why is there such division? Why is history littered with deathly accounts of this division, from the early Jewish persecution of Christians to the Crusades' slaughtering of Jews? The Lion of Judah unpacks the roots of this division, showing how jealousy, theology, the law, and the integration of Gentile believers into what was once a predominantly Jewish early church contributed to the schism. It then goes on to reveal how Jesus magnificently fulfilled every word in the Bible. Readers will discover why the Lion of Judah is the rightful Lord and King of all people--Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, atheists, and the rest of creation. This book will help Christians understand the history of Christianity and Judaism, get into greater alignment with God's plan of redemption, be better equipped to share the gospel with Jewish people, and become more sensitive to and appreciative of their Hebraic heritage.

The worlds are changing. In a world far from our own, where magic and myth are one in the same, a declaration of war is announced. The announcement sets in motion a chain of events that tear into the very fabric of time and space. An ancient legacy has returned to the magical world of Ivane, which had been thought long extinct. Since anyone can remember, there have always been two lines of magic. The first is the essence of the Sorceress. It has been ten years since the last reincarnation of the Sorceress, ten years since very her essence has poisoned an undeserving woman. But suddenly, it has returned. Now, to fight off the evil, three heroes are called upon to help vanquish the essence for good. Legend tells of the one who can manage this seemingly impossible feat. The one who can achieve this is graced with the essences lighter equivalent, the Summoner. Aliz Dominio, a beautiful, gifted young mage from the Alinta Aces; Gogora's only army joins forces with Eddy Seamer. Eddy is a tough but loveable bladesman, and they are joined by one of their mentors, Keryn Blackhart, a patriotic perfectionist who cannot be beaten with a rifle. Together, they embark on a quest that pans the wondrous world they have all grown up in. Only the Summoner can call forth the ancient sceptre of the Gods. This ancient artefact is said to hold the power to vanquish the Summoners evil counterpart and restore peace, if only for a while. But something is different this time around and deep in Aliz's heart a horrible truth is beginning to emerge . . . In old times, a prophecy was made. It spoke of the two ancient lines of magic and how they once belonged to the one who the people of Ivane consider God. It tells of the two lines of magic reuniting in one being, who will ultimately become a God among men. As Aliz and her friends reach their target, the heart wrenching truth is exposed. The true identity of the Sorceress is revealed, and the events that follow are truly catastrophic. When one inherits the essence of the Sorceress, their soul is twisted and corrupted beyond imagining. The darkness within becomes too strong and is unleashed, releasing chaos in its never-ending pursuit for power. It is a wicked burden to bear, and when Aliz inherits this unwanted gift, her soul is thrust into oblivion, and she emerges as the new goddess, forever thirsty for dominance. Now it is up to Aliz's boyfriend, Eddy, and his new friend Keryn to help Aliz. The only option seems bleak, and Eddy drowns in despair. But in a world where anything is possible, can there be a way to pull somebody back from the abyss? Do our heroes try and spit in the face of destiny? Or can destiny be changed? And if they do change destiny, then what?
