The pampered daughter of a duke … Lady Arabella Tremont has spent her entire life protected and overshadowed by her restrictive father. But she is a Tremont, after all, and the morning after she is nearly ruined at a ball by a handsome stranger, Arabella's father demands she make an arranged match with the heir to a dukedom. In desperation, Arabella takes matters into her own hands. Takes a London holiday with the most unsuitable of chaperones … Major Kingsley is in London to avoid his parents' dreadful house party. To his surprise he runs into the enticing—and unforgettable—minx he met at a ball the previous night. Arabella, or Birdie, as he knows her, insists he owes her three favors—for he's put her in a terrible pinch. Kingsley agrees, if only to delay his trip home and because the notion of spending the day with this enchanting bit of muslin is too tempting to resist. But all too quickly he discovers Arabella's requests are hardly what he expected …

Celebrate twenty-five years of Britain’s favourite singleton with this laugh-out-loud number one bestseller. Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice?

Is sleeping with someone after 2 dates and 6 weeks of texting the same as getting married after 2 meetings and 6 months of letter writing in Jane Austen's day? Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, tweeting, texting and redisovering her sexuality in what SOME people rudely and outdatedly call 'middle age'. Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is timely, tender, touching, witty, wise and bloody hilarious.

Mad About Trade Book Excerpt:

If you look at where nearly all of the clothes in your closet were manufactured, as Dan Griswold does at the opening of Mad about Trade, the picture is clear. China, Canada, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Peru, Korea, Egypt, India, Mexico, Thailand, and more—a United Nations of pants, shirts, ties, and jackets. In every sense of the word, trade suits us exceedingly well. Politicians and pundits can rage against free trade and globalization, but much of what they convey is myth. Griswold embraces the global marketplace and shows how free trade is the American family’s best friend – but, it’s not just about better and cheaper goods. As Griswold compellingly details, over the past three decades trade and an open global economy have created a more prosperous, democratic, and peaceful world. Before you accept what you hear on cable TV and talk radio, consider the real story of America’s growing integration in the world economy presented in Mad about Trade. This book is a must-read for every American who wonders where we are all headed in this more open world of ours.

When he’s whisked away to the bizarre land, his best chance for escape is to ally himself with the person called the Mad Hatter. Hatter—an odd but strangely attractive fellow—just wants to avoid execution.

They’re stuck with each other. Along their journey, Henry and Hatter must confront what they’ve always accepted as truth.

Mad About Us Book Excerpt:

Gary and Carrie Oliver have written a practical book to help couples focus their passion in ways that lead to trust, understanding, and intimacy. They want Christian couples to develop Christ-centered marriages, and that includes dealing with issues that prevent intimacy such as fear, frustration, and anger. They demonstrate how the energy--or passion--of the God-given emotion anger can actually be harnessed in ways that build and strengthen a marriage relationship and free couples from one of Satan's most destructive weapons--unhealthy anger. "For more than a quarter of a century Dr. Gary Oliver has pioneered and served the needs of pre-married and married couples nationwide. I know Gary to be a good man and an authentic man who has faithfully loved and cared for the needs of his wife, Carrie, as she has battled cancer for the last couple of years. There is no greater statement of a man's life than the private love and commitment that he shows for his wife."--Dennis Rainey "Dr. Gary Oliver is not only my key mentor in life, but the person who actually helped me really understand what's beneath the power of anger and what you can do about it."--Gary Smalley

God Is Not Mad At You Book Excerpt:

When Joyce Meyer posted 'God's not mad at you' on Facebook a few months ago, she didn't realise that those five words would trigger thousands of posts of gratitude and relief. She had obviously hit a nerve. 'Where does this concept of God come from?' she asks in the introduction. 'Perhaps from an angry parent who was difficult to please. Or the pain of rejection from parents or friends who didn't know how to give unconditional love. Perhaps it came from the church! From religious teaching that offered us rules and regulations to follow and implied that we'd be unacceptable to God if we didn't follow them.' It's a paradox that isn't often discussed by Christian teachers: God loved the world so much that He gave His son to rescue mankind. Yet we tend to think of Him as a stern judge who is ready to punish us at the slightest mis-step. In God Is Not Mad At You, Joyce examines the sources of this mixed message and untangles the confusion that most Christians experience. Chapter titles include: Perfectionism and Approval The Pain of Rejection Guilt and Shame Developing Your Potential Run To God, Not From Him Getting Comfortable with God Joyce's latest book addresses a need that isn't often discussed within the Christian community: the need to see God as the loving parent that He is, not a petty tyrant who is ready to pounce at the first opportunity. It will help to clarify for readers one of the greatest misconceptions within the church and free them to experience His love on an entirely new level.

This tragic love story unfolds in and around the town of Platteville, Colorado in 1925 and 1926. In the Roaring Twenties, young women challenge their elders by dancing to jazz music, wearing abbreviated clothing, and drinking prohibited alcohol. Some men express their opposition in church. Otbers join the Klux Klan,which expands into the Northern States, promising violent resistance to social change. OWEN MATTISON comes to Platteville High School as athletics coach and science teacher, including Vocational Agriculture. Owen's bride, RUBY, a Home Economics graduate, is an accomplished pianist and jazz fan whose clothes and bobbed hair show the triumph of flapper fashion. We meet Owen and Ruby, married for six weeks, sharing a picnic on the LYDELL farm overlooking the river. Inspired by natural beauty, Owen sings a favorite hymn, and Ruby harmonizes. Returning to their tiny rented home, Owen receives a telephone call from ARTHUR STARK, a School Board member. Stark's son later says Stark dislikes the twentieth century and wants to hold it back. Stark changes a meeting date with Owen to attend a luncheon where he joins the Ku Klux Klan, with OLIVER SCOTT, the Platteville barber. Both men participate in the next Klan raid on a dancehall. Eager to teach moral values, the School Board votes to require readings of the King James Bible as part of classroom opening ceremonies. This distresses Catholic parents, whose children will be required to hear a proscribed text. FREDERlCK KOBLENZ, owner of the Platteville Mercantile store, organizes a protest student walkout. FRANCIS (FRA1\K) KOBLENZ, Frederick's son, leads the walkout from Owen's classroom. The School Board soon writes to all parents, requiring all students to remain for the Bible readings
