Lauren Schneider has been hiding from the Russians for six months. She's stir crazy and finds it difficult to believe anyone is still hunting her. After all, the leader of the mob, Anton Yenin, who had her kidnapped in the first place, is behind bars. Why would he continue to pine over her? And then there's Dmitry. That man is smoking hot...with his shaved head, tattooed arms, and bulging muscles. If he doesn't make a move for her soon, she will self-combust. Dmitry Volikov is a member of Anton Yenin's stable of fighters. However, he secretly rescued Lauren from the Russians and has done everything in his power to keep her sequestered and therefore safe. His motives aren't purely altruistic. He's been in love with the gorgeous Lauren for over half a year. He and his partner, Mikhail, work hard at construction sites during the day, still managing to work out and fight for the underground MMA circuit on Friday nights. They're supporting not only Lauren, but Mikhail's sister, Alena. Lauren is done hiding. When she sneaks out and gets a job at a local bar, Dmitry becomes frantic worrying about her safety-and by default his. If anyone finds her, she's dead. If anyone finds her with him, they're both dead. But Lauren is hard-headed. There's no stopping her. Even their bourgeoning steamy relationship isn't enough to keep her from defying logic. In the bedroom, she enjoys Dmitry's dominant ways, but when it comes to the rest of her life, she's hell on wheels. Time is running out. Yenin won't be in jail much longer. When he's released, there's little doubt he'll round up his fighters. Paranoia sets in for both Dmitry and Lauren. Anyone could be following them. Or maybe they're being ridiculously cautious. In any case, Dmitry is facing the fight of his life. He can't leave Lauren at home, and she's a moving target in the crowded underground venue. He has no choice but to rely on his close friends to keep her safe during the fight. When all hell breaks loose, will it destroy their world?

How good are you at bringing in the full point when you hold a clear advantage or are just plain winning? An honest response to this question is likely to evoke some painful memories. Perhaps the single greatest frustration for clublevel chess players is that time and again they see wins turn into draws or even losses. The reasons for messing up a won position are by no means just technical. Recklessness, collapsing nerves, relaxing instead of preparing yourself for a long and arduous fight, the inability to cope with a setback: Cyrus Lakdawala has identified dozens of thoughtprovoking reasons why we are throwing away games that should be ours. He teaches how to efficiently exploit a development lead, capitalize on an attack, identify and convert favourable imbalances, accumulate strategic advantages and other tools to increase your conversion rate. A recurring theme in this stimulating and entertaining book is: don't burden yourself with the toxic task to prove that you are a genius. Just try to win.

“The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump’s authoritarian appeal.”—Salon It Can’t Happen Here is the only one of Sinclair Lewis’s later novels to match the power of Main Street, Babbitt, and Arrowsmith. A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler’s aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called “a message to thinking Americans” by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can’t Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today’s news. Includes an Introduction by Michael Meyer and an Afterword by Gary Scharnhorst

However, she is in no way prepared for the sexy best man who slides into place at the last second for the wedding rehearsal. He flusters her from the moment he arrives and manages to tip her world on its axis before the night is over. But Jenna isn't ready for his world, and besides, she has family issues to deal with and has no interest in divulging the truth about who she really is. Mason Simmons can't believe he is falling for a vanilla woman at his best friend's wedding of all places. Even though both the bride and the groom warn him to stay away from the maid of honor, he isn't able to keep his hands to himself. He's a smart man, though. No matter how hard he gets every time he's with Jenna, he still knows she isn't the type to enjoy either of his favorite pastimes-MMA fighting and BDSM. What he really needs to do is get her out of his system so he can move on. But things don't work out as planned for either Jenna or Mason. Every time they are together, the heat rises. Neither of them is capable of turning the flames down. Jenna proves to be far less vanilla at heart, shocking herself as well as Mason.

Just when things are looking up, Jenna's family enters the picture to rock the boat. Can their relationship survive the extreme turbulence? Secrets are one thing, but Jenna has a pile she wished she never had to divulge.

Honor Book for the Society of School Librarians International’s Best Book Award – Social Studies, Grades 7-12 Winner of 2005 Children’s Nautilus Book Awards (Non-fiction) Prior to abolition in 1865, as many as 40,000 men, women, and children made the perilous trip north to freedom in Canada with the help of the Underground Railroad. It was neither underground nor was it a railroad, and was most remarkable for its lack of formal organization, so cloaked in secrecy that few facts were recorded while it “ran.” The story of the Underground Railroad is one of suffering and of bravery, and is not only one of escape from slavery but of beginnings: of people who carved out a new life for themselves in perilous, difficult circumstances. In I Came as a Stranger, Bryan Prince, a descendent of slaves, describes the people who made their way to Canada and the life that awaited them. From Uncle Tom’s Cabin in Dresden, Ontario to Harriet Tubman’s Canadian base of operations in St. Catharines, the communities founded by former slaves soon produced businessmen, educators, and writers. Yet danger was present in the form of bounty hunters and prejudice. Complemented by archival photos, I Came as a Stranger is an important addition to North American history.
