Book Synopsis: Reynaldo Morales, a seemingly unlikely prospect for an inner journey, is thrust into one, to his great surprise. He finds himself in a dream world—or is it?—where he meets a mentor who leads him on an inner journey that changes his worldview, and his life, in ways he could not have imagined—or did he? He encounters a wise woman who offers to become his mentor in self-discovery and teach him the wisdom of the Ancient Ones, if he is willing to focus wholly on that quest. The woman, Laquesabe (She Who Knows), is an enigmatic, ageless character—calm, centred, wise, and a bit mysterious. Over the course of the story, she guides Reynaldo through unfamiliar landscapes of both his external and internal realities, passing along in her oblique manner much wisdom—some of which he recognises instantly as truth, some of which he struggles to internalise. He learns also from the experiences of others he meets who are on similar journeys, as well as from an ascended Master. The others he encounters have arrived by similarly odd means, each with his or her own story. All are on very personal inner journeys with Laquesabe as their mentor and guide. Each of them is required to maintain focussed attention and intention on why he or she has come in order to complete the journey. Each must eventually return to ordinary life, but with tools to make those lives vastly better than before. How do they do that? They are in for some surprises.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: This set includes all five books of the Becoming Beka series: The Masquerade, The Alliance, The Passage, The Reveal, and The Encore. In The Masquerade, Beka Madison's "good girl" image has been crumbling around her since her mother's tragic death. She can't let her family discover she's not really a Christian, but her ragged emotions threaten to expose her. The Masquerade is an absorbing story of a teenage girl's struggle with self discovery and the revelation that truth brings freedom. In The Alliance, Beka heads back to school with a new-found faith, but that faith is tested sooner than she expected. As she spends time with the eclectic theater group, she is pulled further into her friendship with Gretchen, who has become fascinated with the occult and convinces Beka there is no harm in the tarot cards, crystals, and spells that their group of friends is dabbling in. Beka also struggles in her growing relationship with Mark, who is pressuring her to spend time with him behind her father's back. In the midst of all these shifting alliances, Beka must decide where her true loyalties lie. In The Passage, it's springtime in Bragg County and love is in the air. A church retreat allows Beka to get to know Josh better; but she learns that even though she likes him, his college choice may put a wrench in their relationship. Confused about her relationship with Josh, Beka seeks out Mark for solace. When Mark tries getting physical with Beka, she ponders issues of purity. In The Reveal, Beka, after a summer filled with work and guitar lessons, spends ten days in Haiti before launching into her senior year. She seems to be on stable footing, but everyone around her is falling apart. Surprises await Beka as she faces Gretchen after her two-month stay in detention. Gretchen is darker and moodier. Then there's Mark, who worms his way back into Beka's affections despite her father's refusal to let them officially date. In The Encore, Beka returns for the final semester of her senior year and quickly finds herself in trouble. The song she wrote and performed offended a fellow student and the principal blames Beka and her teacher Mr. Thompson. Meanwhile, she's torn between two different guys, Mark and Josh. And as she prepares for her father's upcoming wedding, Beka is devastated to learn the family will be moving out of their house and into her dad's fiancee's house. Soon Beka is overwhelmed with decisions, including the option to sign a record contract and move to LA after graduation.

Book Synopsis: New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather sets her Brides trilogy against the turmoil of the English Civil War, and tells the tales of three unconventional young women who vow they will never marry - only to be overtaken by destiny. Scholarly Olivia is most certainly The Least Likely Bride. One moment Lady Olivia Granville is strolling along a path, her nose buried in a tome of Greek philosophy; the next she is plunging down a rocky cliff. When she regains consciousness, she is naked and unwittingly trapped on a pirate ship. Her captor, though, is no ordinary pirate. Wickedly handsome, disturbingly mysterious, the grey-eyed master of the Wind Dancer is both a physician and an artist, and admits to making his living from the sea. Most disconcerting of all, when he turns his glittering eyes on her, he sees not the stammering, hopelessly bookish young girl Olivia has always been, but a passionate, beautiful woman who can, if she chooses, embark on the adventure and the love of a lifetime. Don't miss Portia or Phoebe's enchanting stories in The Hostage Bride and The Accidental Bride.
