Tis the Season for Revenge

Abbie Keller thought that Richard Bartholemew Benson the Third would be
her forever. In their four years of dating, she never doubted that she
wouldn’t end up with his grandmother’s engagement ring on her finger. Sure,
she had to change a few things about herself to fit that mold, like dying
her hair, dressing more conservatively, and finding golf enjoyable
(honestly the most difficult of the changes), but she was sure that at the
end of it all, it would be worth it.That is, until he leaves her crying
outside her apartment wearing a Halloween costume, having broken it off
with her because she’s just not serious enough. She was just fun, he tells
her – and now that Richard has becoming a partner at his law firm in his
sights, he needs to focus on work.So she does what every girl does when
she’s broken up with: she calls her friends, gets drunk, dyes her hair, and
formulates her plan for revenge. It just so happens that the universe
supports her efforts and gives her the perfect match to prove to her ex
that he made a huge mistake: his boss.Abbie starts dating the founding
partner of Richard’s law firm, Damien Martinez, with one thing in mind:
convincing him to invite her to the huge annual Christmas party as his
date.But when the relationship starts to become something more than casual
dating and Abbie sees that the tough New York lawyer has a soft side, will
she be able to follow through with her plan of deceit? Read more

The Stories We Tell: Every Piece of Your Story Matters

“Readers will be inspired by Gaines’ desire to find strength in
self-discovery.” —Publishers WeeklyJoanna Gaines invites us on an authentic
and vulnerable journey into her story, a story of doubt and belief, shame
and acceptance; a journey from insecurity to self-discovery, and finding
truth on the other side of lies.Star of Fixer Upper and New York Times
bestselling author, Joanna grew up in a multiracial family, the product of
a unique and beautiful love story between her Korean mother and her
American father. Experiencing regular teasing as a child because of what
made her different, it wasn’t until later in life that she started to see
those differences as the most beautiful part of her story.From stories that
brought shame and her soul’s deepest insecurities to the page to stories
about healing and hope and having just a little bit more fun, join Joanna
as she journeys through the years of becoming a wife, mother of five, and
business owner—looking back to mend what’s broken and gain clarity in
places that are cloudy so she can look forward with grateful and certain
eyes, believing that every chapter has its purpose. The Stories We Tell
reminds us that every piece of our story matters to who we are today and
who we’ll become tomorrow.”This book is not an autobiography. I still have
too much to learn and discover about myself, and I feel as though I am only
halfway there. This book also is not a how-to, because I certainly don’t
have all the answers. What I hope this book is for you is an invitation to
come as you are. To join me, with a vulnerable and open heart, as we
connect the chapters of our life stories, and figure out where we go next,
learning to move forward from within.The only way to break free was to
rewrite my story. Because something would happen every time my pen stopped:
it was like my soul was coming back to my body. Like the deepest parts of
me that got knocked around and drowned out by all the crap I let the world
convince me about who I was came back to the surface. And what was left was
only what was real and true. I was, finally, standing in the fullness of my
story. I felt hopeful. I felt full. Our story may crack us open, but it
also pieces us back together. I’m grateful to have found truth on the other
side of lies. Vulnerability on the other side of fear. Empathy on the other
side of pain. This is how I know that every season has a purpose, and that
holding, even when it leads to letting go, is what clues us into the bigger
story being told.”—Joanna Gaines Read more

do anything to end Kolis, the false King of Gods, and his tyrannical rule

call impossible to resist. And as Sera begins to realize that she wants to
be more than a Consort in name only, the danger surrounding them
intensifies. The attacks on the Shadowlands are increasing, and when Kolis
summons them to Court, a whole new risk becomes apparent. The Primal power
of Life is growing inside her, pushing her closer to the end of her
Culling. And without Nyktos’s love—an emotion he’s incapable of feeling—she
won’t survive her Ascension. That is if she even makes it to her Ascension
and Kolis doesn’t get to her first. Because time is running out. For both
her and the realms. Read more
