Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory December, 1875 Ash Barker and his brother had just about built their ranch into a success when he busted his arm trying to tame a particularly nasty mustang. Now they're headed into Cheyenne's harsh winter with fewer hands, and a very real danger of failure. They need someone else-anyone else-out there with them, to make it through this season. Molly Murray's dream of owning her own bakery went up in flames with the Great Chicago Fire. She's been supporting her younger sisters for the last four years, and it seems like the Cheyenne wilderness might be her last chance to give them all a real home. But no one will hire her, until she meets the intimidatingly masculine, incredibly handsome, and very desperate Ash Barker. Can their unique families blend in time to celebrate their first real Cheyenne Christmas?

"Between the witch and the rescue, the lost princess had two loving parents. This is their Happily Ever After. There's a Guild of Godmothers in Everland, Wyoming, and they're prepared to meddle. They can't stand the thought of handsome, newly arrived Doctor Jack Carpenter raising his precious little daughter all by himself, and they're determined to find him a suitable wife. Luckily, they know just how to do it: take out an advertisement in a Mail-Order Bride catalog, and make sure that the perfect candidate sees it. Too bad they didn't mention the plan to Jack first. Meri Almassy is desperate for two things: to marry a doctor, and to get away from the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, which is full of bad memories. As a respectable doctor's wife in the quaint-sounding town of Everland, she'll be free to practice her own medicine, helping the women and children in the area. It's an ideal solution, and she happily heads west to become Mrs. Jack Carpenter. But "Jack Carpenter" isn't really his name, and he's got a background no gently-bred young woman should know about. Jack is fighting his own past and he's determined to protect his daughter and his heart--at all costs. Are Meri's dreams of a medical partnership and a Happily Ever After with her new family going to be more than this skittish father can handle?

When a handsome stranger arrives trying to solve a fifteen-year-old mystery, even the most over-protected heroine knows how to let down her hair. Zelle Carpenter loves her parents. She really, really does. It's just that they're soooooo obsessed with keeping her safe that she feels like she's been locked in a tower half the time. There's no chance to go out and have fun, without resorting to a little trickery with her best friend, and there's no chance to meet boys. The only boys she knows are the always-on-their-best-behavior cowboys at Church, and who wants to practice kissing with them? Duke Dmitri Volkov is stuck in this backwater American town for one reason only; to solve the fifteen-year-old mystery about a lost princess that his father shared on his death-bed. But he's not going to pass up the opportunity to kiss a pretty girl, especially if that pretty girl has the most beguiling green eyes and taste for adventure. Despite his best efforts, he's quickly falling for this quaint town and its welcoming citizens. The only thing left is to solve his father's mystery, so that he can start his Happily Ever After. But Dmitri doesn't realize that finding the lost princess from his past will strip away any chance of future happiness in Everland. [Note: This story is the sequel to THE STEPMOTHER. Both can be read independently, but a reader might enjoy RAPUNZELLE more if s/he has read the other first.] ************************************************ The Brides of Everland, Ever After Step into Everland, Wyoming, where the people on the street are more than what they appear, and there's just a hint of magic in the air. From evil villains to mysterious godmothers, handsome cowboys to hidden princesses... welcome to Everland, Ever After. Heat Level: 1/5 (suitable for most audiences)

Fully revised and expanded, this new work is the first major revision of the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church in more than 40 years! It is the official revision of Lesser Feasts and Fasts and authorized by the 2009 General Convention. All commemorations in Lesser Feasts and Fasts have been retained, and many new ones added. Three scripture readings (instead of current two) are provided for all minor holy days. Additional new material includes a votive mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary, many more ecumenical commemorations, plus a proper for space exploration. For years the oft revised volume, Lesser Feasts and Fasts (LFF), has served parishes and individuals mark part of the holiness of each day by providing Scripture readings, a collect, a Eucharistic preface, and a narrative about those remembered on the church's calendar that day whose lives have witnessed to the grace of God. Holy Women, Holy Men (HWHM) is a major effort to revise, but also to expand and enrich LFF. Where LFF provided two readings (gospel and other New Testament) plus a psalm, HWHM adds an Old Testament citation. Where LFF was limited to few non-Anglicans in the post-reformation period (and few non-Episcopalians after 1789), HWHM dramatically broadens appreciation for other Christians and their traditions. Over-emphasis on clergy is redressed by additional laity, males by females, and "in-church" activities by contributions well beyond the workings of institutional agendas. These almost daily commemorations occupy over 600 of the book's 785 pages, by far the lion's share of its content. Remaining sections address: principles of revision and guides for future revision; liturgical propers for seasons (Advent/Christmas, Lent, and Easter); and new propers for a miscellany of propers usable with individuals (or events) not officially listed in the formal calendar. Two cycles of propers for daily Eucharist are also included, one covering a six week period, the other a two year cycle.

For nearly two hundred years, women in Ashley Tolliver’s family have practiced the art of midwifery in their mountain community. Now she wants to take her skills a step further, but attending medical school means abandoning those women to whom she has dedicated her life, the mountains she loves, and the awakening of her heart. Ashley Tolliver has tended to the women of her small Appalachian community for years. As their midwife, she thinks she has seen it all. Until a young woman gives birth at Ashley’s home and is abducted just as Ashley tries to take the dangerously bleeding mother to the nearest hospital. Now Ashley is on a mission to find the woman and her newborn baby . . . before it’s too late. Hunter McDermott is on a quest—to track down his birth mother. After receiving more media attention than he could ever want for being in the right place at the right time, he receives a mysterious phone call from a woman claiming to be his mother. Hunter seeks out the aid of the local midwife in the mountain town where the phone call originated—surely she can shed some light on his own family background. Ashley isn’t prepared for the way Hunter’s entrance into her world affects her heart and her future. He reignites dreams of having her own family that she has long put aside in favor of earning her medical degree and being able to do even more for her community. But is it commitment to her calling or fear of the unknown that keeps her feet firmly planted in the Appalachian soil? Or is it something more—fear of her growing feelings for Hunter—that makes her hesitant to explore the world beyond the mountains?
