Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey (2010, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)

 

The undead can really screw up your senior year . . .

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

 by Bernhard Schlink

 

Publisher: Vook Inc.



ISBN-13: 9781936321339

Edition description: Enhanced (Compatible with Nook Color/Tablet Only)

Age range: 18 years

File size: 59 MB

 

Overview

"The Weekend" is the latest novel from Bernhard Schlink, bestselling author of "The Reader." It tells the story of a group of people involved in the political upheaval in Germany in the 1970s and how it affects their lives today.

 

After twenty-four years, Jörg, a convicted murderer and terrorist, has been released from prison. The announcement of his pardon sends shock waves throughout the country, but before the announcement, his friends-some of whom were Baader-Meinhof sympathizers or those who clung to them-gather for his first weekend of freedom. They excavate old memories and pass clandestine judgments on the wildly divergent paths they've taken since their youth.

 

In this Vook, chapters from "The Weekend" are paired with videos featuring Schlink as he reflects on terror, politics and his writing process. These videos are a window into the author's mind, and give insight to the history behind the story. As a special bonus at the end of this Vook, read Bernhard Schlink's short story "A Little Fling."

A Texan's Promise (Heart of a Hero Series #1) 

By Shelley Gray

 

Publisher: Abingdon Press

ISBN-13: 9781426736766

Series:Heart of a Hero Series, #1

File Size: 1 MB

 

Overview

 Texas, 1872. Clayton Proffitt knows Vanessa Grant can no longer live at home. Once more, he knows he's the only person who should take her away. Before Vanessa's father's death, Clayton promised he'd do everything in his power to keep her safe. So begins their journey from the plains of west Texas to the mountains of Colorado. Along the way, their faith is tested and their safety compromised. But most of all, Clayton's promise is tested. He will do anything to honor his promise to her father . . . even if it means it will break his heart.
When Clayton Proffitt, foreman of the Circle Z Ranch in Texas, discovers Vanessa Grant crying in the barn late one night, he first thinks she's gotten herself into another scrape. But when he spies the marks on her back and hears about her stepfather's advances, Clayton knows he must spirit Vanessa away to safety.
As they make their way west, it becomes apparent that there's something special between Vanessa and Clayton- far more significant than mere friendship or his sense of duty. Unfortunately, also heading west are Vanessa's brother Miles and her stepfather Price Venture. Price wants Vanessa back for obvious reasons; Miles wants to earn his stepfather's respect. Eventually, unexpected confrontations reach a harrowing conclusion. As their family begins to heal, their journey and trials they've faced helps them realize their future is in God's guiding hands.    

 

  

Editorial Reviews

 

Library JournalTexas ranch foreman Clayton Proffitt made a promise to Vanessa Grant's father that he would always watch over her. When he learns that her stepfather has been making unwanted advances toward her, he packs up Vanessa and heads West. Vanessa has always loved Clayton, and his feelings for her turn romantic as they journey to escape her tormentor. VERDICT Suspense and a plethora of well-drawn secondary characters make Gray's (Hidden; The Survivor) series debut much more than your average Western romance. With strong character development and a brisk pace, this is a good choice for readers of Henry McLaughlin.

The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow (Bright's Pond Series) 

 by Joyce Magnin

 

Publisher: Abingdon Press

ISBN-13:9781426713736                       

Series:Bright's Pond Series

File size: 766 KB

 

Overview

                 The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow is the story of an unusual woman, Agnes Sparrow. No longer able or willing to leave her home, where she is cared for by her long-suffering sister Griselda, Agnes has committed her life to the one thing she can do-besides eat. Agnes Sparrow prays and when Agnes prays things happen, including major miracles of the cancer, ulcer-healing variety along with various minor miracles not the least of which is the recovery of lost objects and a prize-winning pumpkin.
The rural residents of Bright's Pond are so enamored with Agnes they plan to have a sign erected on the interstate that reads, "Welcome to Bright's Pond, Home of Agnes Sparrow." This is something Agnes doesn't want and sends Griselda to fight city hall. Griselda's petitions are shot down and the sign plans press forward until a stranger comes to town looking for his miracle from Agnes. The truth of Agnes's odd motivation comes out when the town reels after the murder of a beloved community member. How could Agnes allow such evil in their midst? Didn't she know? Well, the prayers of Agnes Sparrow have more to do with Agnes than God. Agnes has been praying to atone for a sin committed when she was a child. After some tense days, the townsfolk, Griselda, and Agnes decide they all need to find their way back to the true source of the miracles-God.

Code Blue (Prescription for Trouble Series #1) 

 by Richard L. Mabry

 

Publisher: Abingdon Press

ISBN-13:9781426715341

Series:Prescription for Trouble Series, #1                           

File size: 439 KB

 

Overview

                 In the first book of the Prescription for Trouble series, "Code Blue" means more to Dr. Cathy Sewell than the cardiac emergency she has to face. It describes her mental state as she finds that coming back to her hometown hasn't brought her the peace she so desperately needs. Instead, it's clear that someone there wants her gone . . . or dead. Cathy returns to her hometown seeking healing after a broken relationship, but discovers that among her friends and acquaintances is someone who wants her out of town . . . or dead. Lawyer Will Kennedy, her high school sweetheart, offers help, but does it carry a price tag? Is hospital chief of staff Dr. Marcus Bell really on her side in her fight to get hospital privileges? Is Will's father, Pastor Matthew Kennedy, interested in advising her or just trying to get her back to the church she left years ago? When one of Cathy's prescriptions almost kills the town banker, it sets the stage for a malpractice suit that could end her time in town, if not her career. It's soon clear that this return home was a prescription for trouble.

The Dog Next Door: And Other Stories of the Dogs We Love by Callie Smith Grant (2011, Baker Publishing Company)

 

A wagging tail. A goofy, floppy-tongued smile. An excited bark when your keys jingle in the door.

Dogs are truly one of God's finest creatures, a marvelous gift for us humans. They love us despite our faults and remind us to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. They give us their all in return for food, play, and a scratch behind the ears.

The Dog Next Door is a delightful collection of true stories that celebrate the dogs in our lives. Inside you'll meet a timid standard poodle who conquers his fears to bring joy to others, a brigade of protective German shepherds, a friendly dog who pulls a young man back from the darkness of mental illness, a scruffy mutt who finds her calling, and many more. These warm stories will touch your heart and renew your spirit.

So curl up on the couch with the special dog in your life . . . and enjoy!

"Every dog has a tale to tell. This lovable collection of true and heartwarming stories celebrates the bond between dogs and humans. You'll be entertained, inspired, and touched by the ability of dogs to be instruments of God's miracles. These powerful stories will resonate with anyone who has loved a dog."--Suzanne Woods Fisher, bestselling author of the Lancaster County Secrets series and puppy raiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind

"There's nothing like a good dog story to reassure me that, despite the six o'clock news, the world is still a good place. And I truly believe that dogs make us more human. I predict that these uplifting and amazing canine tales will warm the heart of any animal lover."--Melody Carlson, author of The Christmas Dog

Callie Smith Grant is the editor of A Prince among Dogs and A Dickens of a Cat. She is also the author of several nonfiction books for young readers and adults, as well as many animal-themed stories and poems that can be seen in Guideposts anthologies and in magazines such as Small Farmer's Journal.

An unexpected human attack on a lunewulf pack has led to devastating losses, leaving the pack with very few single females old enough to mate. Drastic measures must be taken.

Nik Alexander knows Sophie Rousseau is his. The entire pack knows it. He's sniffed after her since high school, and now it's time to approach his pack leader and ask that Sophie be his mate. But with the new law in effect, Nik must share Sophie with two other males.
