What could possibly go wrong when twelve-year-old twin girls go up against criminals plotting an evil scheme? Twins, Betty and Bev have a knack for sniffing out danger, and a greater knack for getting in over their heads. Suspicious, they follow a stranger and find the situation is far worse than they could have imagined. Sheriff Scott and their Dad try desperately to keep them safe, but Betty and Bev are determined to help. Betty Inman Shortt transports readers back to 1950's rural America for an adventure with many twists and harrowing situations. With humor as well as suspense, she shows that girls can be strong, witty, and clever, and illustrates a stark contrast between good and evil.

In this thought provoking book the author takes the reader into the fascinating world of Alchemy and Cabala that underlies Shakespeare's play, Twelfth Night or What You Will. We are shown not only how the play is based on a profound understanding of the biblical Genesis and Revelation but also of the mystery path of initiation that lies between. The story takes on another depth of meaning when we realise that the characters represent aspects of our own psyche and spirit as well as of society generally, and that the play is an allegory of a possible path to our own and humanity’s future happiness.

Award-winning author Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series continues with a woman on a quest to be the heroine of her own story and the duke in shining armor she rescues along the way… New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and—most importantly—herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she’s capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss…when she’s not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr. Tavish McKenzie doesn’t need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory…even if she is infuriatingly good at it. Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice—and his attraction to her—but when Portia accidentally discovers that he’s the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project. Forging metal into weapons and armor is one thing, but when desire burns out of control and the media spotlight gets too hot to bear, can a commoner turned duke and his posh apprentice find lasting love?
