Betting Hearts 

 

by Dee Tenorio

 

ISBN-13:9781599980355                       

Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

Pages: 251

Category: Contemporary Romance

 

Overview

 

A Rancho Del Cielo Romance

 

He’s never lost a bet in his life but she’s playing for keeps!

 

Cassandra Bishop’s boyfriend is back. Only problem is…she doesn’t want anything to do with him. Or his new fiancée. What the confirmed tomboy would like is to wring his neck. She might have done it, too, if he hadn’t filled her in on the embarrassing truth that he’d left her at the altar because she wasn’t woman enough to satisfy him. Her pride nearly settled for punching him in the nose…until she thought of something better—proving him wrong.

 

High on Burke Hallifax’s list of cataclysmic nightmares is having to look at his best friend as a real female. But when her ex-fiancé makes his wedding a personal vendetta against Cass, Burke has no choice but to bet everything on her ability to out hot-girl the competition. Unfortunately, the entire town is betting as well—on whether Burke and Cass can pull off the makeover of the century…without losing their hearts in the process.

by Steven Raichlen

 

  • ISBN-13: 9780761173557
  • Publisher: Workman Publishing Company, Inc.

Plain old burgers? No such thing. With Raichlen's Burgers, the doors to burger mastery are flung wide open. There’s the all-American version (seasoned with little more than salt and pepper), but there’s also a New Mexican Green Chile Burger, an Herb Butter Burger, a Oaxacan-Spiced Turkey Burger, a veggie burger and a tuna burger. It’s 25 of the world’s best—featuring the Really Big Bosnian Burger!—from bestselling Barbecue! Bible author Steven Raichlen.

 

Burger heaven awaits.

Recollection  

by Tom Pawlik

 

  • Series: 7 Hours
  • ISBN-13: 9781414374970
  • Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers
  • Publication date: 4/13/2012 

     In each installment of 7 Hours, a character is visited by the enigmatic Thomas Constant, who makes a heart-stopping statement: “You are about to die. But you may choose from one of three options: Live seven more hours, travel back in time and relive seven hours, or accept the inevitable and die now.”

 

New York City cabdriver Adrian Colfax awakens one night muttering a mysterious string of numbers and with the fragments of a bizarre dream in his head. He can’t shake the feeling there’s something he’s supposed to do. Something very important. He just can’t remember what it is.

 

Through a series of haunting visions, Adrian comes to believe he's been transported back in time to prevent the violent murder of the girl he loved. But he also learns that saving Kate could result in something even more catastrophic.

 

The clock is ticking. What will you do with the time you have left?

Trading on Corporate Earnings News: Profiting from Targeted, Short-Term Options Positions
by John Shon, Ping Zhou

 

Trading on Corporate Earnings News: Profiting from Targeted, Short-Term Options Positions

 

  • ISBN-13: 9780132615853
  • Publisher: Pearson Education
  • Publication date: 3/23/2011

 

Profit from earnings announcements, by taking targeted, short-term option positions explicitly timed to exploit them! Based on rigorous research and huge data sets, this book identifies the specific earnings-announcement trades most likely to yield profits, and teaches how to make these trades—in plain English, with real examples!

 

Trading on Corporate Earnings News is the first practical, hands-on guide to profiting from earnings announcements. Writing for investors and traders at all experience levels, the authors show how to take targeted, short-term option positions that are explicitly timed to exploit the information in companies’ quarterly earnings announcements. They first present powerful findings of cutting-edge studies that have examined market reactions to quarterly earnings announcements, regularities of earnings surprises, and option trading around corporate events. Drawing on enormous data sets, they identify the types of earnings-announcement trades most likely to yield profits, based on the predictable impacts of variables such as firm size, visibility, past performance, analyst coverage, forecast dispersion, volatility, and the impact of restructurings and acquisitions. Next, they provide real examples of individual stocks–and, in some cases, conduct large sample tests–to guide investors in taking advantage of these documented regularities. Finally, they discuss crucial nuances and pitfalls that can powerfully impact performance.

Book 1 in the Twilight's Possession series.

 

Reader Advisory: Contains a scene of male/male sexual interaction.


Private detective Brea Maguire is on her first case, tracking down a stolen statue - the Sacred Triad - before it's buried in the black market. Unfortunately today - Friday the Thirteenth - isn't her day. Being kidnapped from the mall by a pair of bizarre guys who put the Chippendales to shame didn't figure into her new career plans.

Dayne and Marek have their own problems. Dayne, forced into a blood-bond with Marek, his sworn enemy, sees his chance to exact vengeance for his family's slaughter slip away. For Marek, the blood-bond with Dayne may be too late. His enemies have learned the secret of the Triad, which holds the only hope for a cure for his dying brother, the king.

Marek can help Brea find the Triad and use it to save his brother's life, but only if she too enters the blood-bond. The burning hunger that accompanies it is a major complication none of them anticipated.

Two men, one woman and a driving sexual hunger that none can resist, in a race against time to save one man-or destroy thousands.

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/elements-unbound-lorie-oclare/1019316272?ean=9781419906077

 

Book 1 in the Werewolves of Malta series.

Bruno Tangaree has a mission. With his guidance and strength, the Werewolves of Malta will know more glory than any pack on Earth. And he's chosen his mate-the only woman who not only makes him burn with hunger, but who can match his special gift-to run by his side as he leads his kind. It's time to run his little lady to ground.

Renee has fled from her sire, angry, hating the knowledge that he'd agree to a mating for the money and prestige it would bring his den. He has sold her like a piece of chattel, and she won't stand for it.

When Bruno, the rogue werewolf no den would approve of, approaches her, she's terrified and excited at the same time. Strong, determined, dark and sexy, he's been the source of more fantasies than she can count. But now he knows her darkest secret, and seduces her so quickly she forgets the meaning of the word no.

Bruno shows her that by mastering the elements, developing and sharing their gifts will make them the strongest werewolves ever to walk this planet.

Sounds from The Great Animal Orchestra  

by Bernie Krause

 

  • ISBN-13: 9780316224482
  • Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
  • Publication date: 3/19/2012

 

 Bernie Krause is one of the world's experts in natural sound. In this sound-enhanced eBook short, we take a glimpse into his new book, THE GREAT ANIMAL ORCHESTRA, an intensely personal narrative of life as it hits the ears, and of the planet's deeply connected natural sounds and music. This short focuses on wild sounds of the earth.

Krause shows that just as streetlights drown out the stars, human noise is vanishing the sounds of nature--and the very soundscapes that help us understand how wild sound and music connect.

THE GREAT ANIMAL ORCHESTRA is based on a lifetime of study and thousands of hours of the author's recordings of the wild. This short opens up just a bit of it, in words and rich sound.


 

(PS - there are 4 versions of this if you search by name, all free, but this one had the cover image like the for sale Nook book, so I thought it was probably the best version.)
