At the start of his school holidays, Danny Delaney is looking forward to a trouble-free summer. But when his mother returns home one afternoon, flanked by two policemen, he knows that something terrible has happened. Mrs Delaney has accidentally hit a small boy with her car. The boy is in a coma at the local hospital and nobody knows if he will ever wake up. Consumed by guilt, Danny's mother closes herself off, while Danny and his father are left to pick up the pieces of their fractured family. Told in John Boyne's unique style from the point of view of a twelve-year-old boy, The Dare is a brilliantly compelling story about how one moment can change a family forever.

All Dora wants is to be the woman he loves . . . All Zical wants is to complete his mission . . . All the enemy wants is total annihilation . . . Blocked by the limitations of her computer hardware, Dora has used only her smarts, her humor, and her sinfully sexy voice to intrigue Rystani warrior-pilot Zical. In order to experience human sexuality--and consummate her love for him--she builds the perfect female body to inhabit. Being human is more difficult and more wonderful than Dora expected. She didn't expect the sensation of touch to alter her emotions. Nor did she expect chocolate to taste so good. Or love to be so complicated. But for a Rystani star pilot, accepting Dora as a crew woman, never mind a lover, is downright confusing. Even if Zical considered Dora fully human--which he doesn't--his tragic past has made him swear off falling in love. But as Dora's increasingly human allure becomes hard to resist, a threat to the solar system sends them on a dangerous mission to the very edge of the galaxy. As Dora explores the full extent of what it means to love, can Zical's sense of honor and his proud adherence to Rystani customs ever let him give his heart to a woman who created herself only for him? And as their enemies turn deadly, Dora and Zical must overcome their pasts . . . if they hope to fight for all of their futures.

Would you gas up your car with jet fuel? Would you wash your clothes in pure bleach? Would you water your lawn with pure fertilizer? If the answer is no, then statistically, why are most Americans today (perhaps including you) doing this to their bodies every day by eating refined sugars? Sugar, when locked in foods with fiber and nutrients, is very healthy. But processed, refined sugar is a poison. In The Dare: Can You Walk Away from Your Poisonous Passion?, I use my own personal struggles with refined sugar to provide for you a simple, common sense, and practical explanation as to what refined sugar is and why you should either limit the amount that you eat or, better, cut it out completely. I also provide you with the tools to make the change along with a personal challenge to take the first step. This is not a medical book, though I support my book with credible research, quotes, and testimonials! This is a book written so that we, laymen and laywomen, can understand and apply. So let me throw out the challenge now . . . I dare you to read The Dare: Can You Walk Away from Your Poisonous Passion? and I dare you to take The Dare. My hope is that your life will become more healthy, happy, and full, just as mine has become through taking The Dare!

From #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes the third and final book in the bestselling Bet Series... (Stand Alone Book/No cliffhanger) Boring Beth Lynn has always lived up to her nickname... until she wakes up in a hotel bed next to a sexy as sin state senator she re-connected with at a wedding the previous night. The biggest problem? She can't seem to remember anything about the night before except for crying into a box of cookies, and she's pretty sure Grandma Nadine slipped something in her drink. And what should have been a one night stand turns into a six day adventure when Grandma whisks them off to Hawaii to save them from the ensuing media firestorm. Jace isn't looking for commitment -- he believes he made that clear when he left the wedding with Beth. Then again, he can't remember much of anything other than the way her skin felt beneath his hands. Now he's stuck with her at some lame couple's retreat and trying his hardest to fight the attraction only a woman like Beth could invoke. He doesn't think it can get any worse. But one spider attack... A donkey ride from hell... And an unfortunate episode with Viagra tea -- and there's one thing Jace knows for sure: He should never have agreed to Grandma Nadine's suggestion in the first place. Because if this isn't paradise, and it isn't a vacation -- that only leaves one option. Survival. But to make it through alive... they might lose their hearts in the process.
