Poseidon, ancient Greek God of the Sea, ruler of earthquakes and once worshipped by thousands as a fertility god, was bored and that could be a dangerous thing for people around him. Deciding to visit his son, Nereus and friends at the Cloverleah pack, Poseidon causes his own brand of trouble, resulting in a night out at a club. All he wanted was a bed partner for a few hours. What he got was so much more. Alpha Claude wanted nothing more than to rule his pack, care for his club members and take up the offer of a warm body when his urges got to strong. When Kane, Alpha of Cloverleah calls and says he wants to bring a special visitor, he was intrigued. But when a silver-haired god walks into his club, he knows his life is going to change. He just didn't by realize how much. Gods dropping in, visits from family and pesky secrets have a way of making things difficult. Fighting outside foes is easy, but the problems that flare between two very different men might be enough to scupper their mating before it has a chance to settle. Will they ever find their HEA or are the differences between a land creature and a god of the sea to big to overcome? This is an M/M true mates book and as such comes with the obligatory warnings. While this is book two in the series and can be read as a standalone, readers will have more of an understanding of secondary characters and off page references if they have read book one and the Cloverleah series, in particular, On The Brink.

Why did God turn Lot's wife into a pillar of salt? Were there no other seasonings available? How come no one noticed when Samson's hair grew back? Who lost Jesus's baby book? If no one was around, just who reported the desert encounter between Jesus and the Devil? And why does the Holy Spirit like to show up as a bird? As irreverent and funny as the musical The Book of Mormon, Dr. Joe Wenke's YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING: THE CULTURAL ARSONIST'S SATIRICAL READING OF THE BIBLE, is an engaging, provocative and hilarious investigation into the bestselling book of all time. Writing to "cause trouble," cultural arsonist Dr. Wenke--a keen observer of human gullibility--forces readers to reexamine the stories they think they know about the Bible. Drawing upon the same pool of incendiary and cerebral humor as Bill Maher, Jon Stewart and the late, great George Carlin, YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING is a call for humor to restore our sanity and our ability to think for ourselves.

Tyler Wood was a successful professional, a dynamic athlete, and a happy family man. This young Texan evolved from a high school and college leader to an award-winning professional with a family he loved, a luxury home - everything he'd ever wanted, all before he was thirty years old. Suffering from the Father Wound - a psychological injury inflicted by a father who knew no better - Tyler was deeply, emotionally crippled. He lost everything - family, business, and home - and reached a point of profound depression only seconds from killing himself. A supernatural miracle of God knocked him sideways in his soul. Tyler tells his story with complete honesty, holding back nothing. The most intimate details of his thunderous fall from grace are revealed with shocking vulnerability. He tells the very personal story of how men are identifying the Father Wound and healing and changing their lives. Tyler introduces Rock Bottom Outreach, a ministry devoted to being the hands and feet of Jesus. Meet founder Rick Smith and some of the courageous men and women ministering to anyone who has hit rock bottom with the same love and compassion modeled by Jesus when he walked upon the earth. The Rock Bottom Outreach team aspires to put its faith in action by serving those in need without regard to how they fell into their difficult circumstances. They meet the brokenhearted right where they are and stand in the gap for those who have nowhere else to turn. Rock Bottom Outreach welcomes those who need restoration from rock bottom or feel they have been called to serve others who have. Not a church, with no physical facility, this dynamic team relies solely on volunteers to carry out the work they are called to do in His name.

Sara Barnes thought her life was perfectly ordinary – until the night she began stepping into other people’s dreams. Follow Sara as she learns to cope with this extraordinary gift (or curse) in the first three books of the Dream Doctor Mysteries: DREAM STUDENT It’s bad enough that, thanks to her supernatural talent, Sara is learning more than she ever needed to know about her friends and classmates, watching their most secret fantasies whether she wants to or not. Much worse are the other dreams, the ones she sees nearly every night, featuring a strange, terrifying man who commits unspeakable crimes. Now Sara wonders if she’s the only witness to a serial killer – and the only one who knows when and where he’s going to strike next. DREAM DOCTOR Medical school and life as a newlywed would be enough by themselves for anybody to handle. But Sara’s got another problem – her dreams have started up again. Almost everyone at the medical school is dreaming about the death of the school’s least popular teacher, Dr. Morris, and once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do. DREAM CHILD Sara thought she had made peace with her dreaming talent, but she’s got a surprise coming: her four-year-old daughter has inherited it, too. Unraveling a mystery with lives on the line is difficult enough under the best of circumstances. But when Sara has to view all the evidence through the eyes – and dreams - of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.

One of the most famous science books of our time, the phenomenal national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist" (Science Digest).

In this lively work that “can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist” (Detroit Free Press), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets—and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman’s life shines through in all its eccentric glory—a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah.
