A "fantastic”* new romance from the author of Return to Me and "one of the top 10 reads of 2013"**... For ten months, bestselling novelist Alec Winston hasn't been able to type a single word, and he's coming dangerously close to breaching his publishing contract. An invitation from his brother to spend the summer in Wilmington Beach might be just the thing to blast through his writer's block. Yet Alec discovers more than a spark of inspiration on the sunny sands. He meets an amber-eyed muse who makes him think about much more than books . . . Faith Armstrong has finally gathered the courage to leave her past behind and accepted a job as a private tutor, hoping for a fresh start on the North Carolina coast. This is the home she's always longed for—not just a place, but a state of mind. She's felt invisible her whole life, so the host of new friends and the attention of a sexy author have her head spinning. But Alec has a secret that could prove this isn't the life Faith dreamed of after all . . . * Carla Neggers, New York Times bestselling author ** Kathy Altman of USA Today on The Dysfunctional Test

Winston! "Oh, hey," Chip said lamely, spinning on his heel. "I didn't think you were still here." Seeing Brenden's confused look, he clarified. "No limo." "Oh, yeah." Brenden looked down at his boots, the brown leather just scuffed enough to be fashionable. "I hopped an Uber over. I thought maybe you'd give me a ride back to the hotel so we could talk." "I see." Chip's jaw tightened slightly. "I have my bike, so that won't work, but I'll wait with you if you want to get that ride back. We can talk while we wait." "I was really hoping we could get some time alone to talk without being rushed," Brenden offered quietly. "I have a lot to say. Doesn't your bike have a passenger seat?" "Yeah." Chip's voice was clipped. "But I don't carry passengers." Not anymore, anyway, he thought to himself. Brenden had been the last person to sit behind him, clinging to his waist, as the powerful Harley had devoured the road. "Okay." Disappointment registered clearly on Brenden's face. "Will you come back to the hotel with me?" "Naw, man." Chip stared over his shoulder. "I can't, not tonight." "Winston, please?" Brenden's voice held a pleading note. "I really need your help." "Don't call me that," Chip snapped, sharper than he meant to, and then felt a trace of shame as the smaller man took a step back. "Sorry," Chip muttered, shoving his hands in his pockets. "I go by Chip now." Brenden nodded. "Chip, then. I really do need your help." Chip sighed, long and deep. "Get your ride scheduled and tell me what you need." 1. Language: English.

Standing on the balcony, outside my boss's apartment, wearing only my underwear? Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning. I guess I should've thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym instructor, especially since I had no idea the guy was married.When he pushed me outside five seconds before his wife walked through the door, I jumped one balcony over. I thought it would be less embarrassing for a total stranger to find me than his wife. That was a smart move.So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, staring through the living room window at my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase Winston. I have two choices: I can sit here and try to think of another way out of this and risk dying of hypothermia, or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After a long, internal argument with myself, I choose option two. Here goes nothing....Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Chambers, Elizabeth Hart.

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I have studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more. -Sir Winston Churchill Live your life as though your every act were to become universal Law. -Immanuel Kant Those of you who will be truly happy are those who have sought, and found, how to serve. -Albert Schweitzer I think it is required of a man that he should share the passions of his time at the peril of being judged not to have lived. -Oliver Wendell Holmes In the midst of winter, I suddenly found there was in me an invincible summer. -Albert Camus Without criticism and reliable and intelligent reporting, the government cannot govern. -Walter Lippmann Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt. -William Shakespeare (Measure for Measure)...

Greenhouse Effect and Sea Level Rise

Winston Churchill, whose output as a writer was so prodigious that one might reasonably wonder whether he was paid by the page, was him self put off by long works. As prime minister of Great Britain, he once pushed away a report from a junior minister, observing, 'This paper, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.' No doubt some laymen will glance at the study that follows and be deterred from further consideration by the fact that the study is a scien tific one. If that is a hurdle for you, I hope you will join me in getting over it, because, if you do, you will find that the authors have quite a story to tell. That story is about change-the possibility that the climatic patterns of the world are in a transition to warmer weather that could lead to a rise in the sea level. You may not have thought much about the sea level previously; it was something we took for granted. But since we have taken it as a given for so long, the adjustments we may have to make will be profound. When you stop to think about all the areas of our lives that could be affected by climatic change, you will be amazed: we have planned our cities, developed our manufacturing techniques, and chosen our en vironmental protection strategies on the assumption of a stable seaJevel.

In 1963, Judge Charles Whedbee was asked to substitute on a Greenville, NC, morning show called Carolina Today while one of the program's regulars was in the hospital. Whedbee took the opportunity to tell some of the Outer Banks stories he'd heard during his many summers at Nags Head. The station received such a volume of mail in praise of his tale-telling that he was invited to remain even after the man he was substituting for returned to the air. 'He had a way of telling a story that really captured me,' said one of the program's co-hosts. 'Whether he was talking about a sunset, a ghost, or a shipwreck, I was there, living every minute of it.' Word traveled as far as Winston-Salem, where John F. Blair proposed to Whedbee that he compile his stories in book form. Whedbee welcomed the challenge, though his expectations for the manuscript that became Legends of the Outer Banks and Tar Heel Tidewater were modest. 'I wrote it out of a love for this region and the people whom I'd known all my life,' he said. 'I didn't think it would sell a hundred copies.' From the very first sentence of the foreword, Whedbee stamped the collection with his inimitable style: 'You are handed herewith a small pod or school of legends about various portions of that magical region known as the Outer Banks of North Carolina as well as stories from other sections of the broad bays, sounds, and estuaries that make up tidewater Tarheelia.' The Lost Colony, Indians, Blackbeard, an albino porpoise that guided ships into harbor-the tales in that volume form the core of Outer Banks folklore. Whedbee liked to tell people that his stories were of three kinds: those he knew to be true, those he believed to be true, and those he fabricated. But despite much prodding, he never revealed which were which. Legends of the Outer Banks went through three printings in 1966, its first year. Demand for Whedbee's tales and the author's supply of good material were such that further volumes were inevitable. The Flaming Ship of Ocracoke & Other Tales of the Outer Banks was published in 1971, Outer Banks Mysteries & Seaside Stories in 1978, Outer Banks Tales to Remember in 1985, and Blackbeard's Cup and Stories of the Outer Banks in 1989. In 2004, the staff of John F. Blair, Publisher, collected 13 of Judge Whedbee's finest stories for Pirates, Ghosts, and Coastal Lore. If this is your introduction to Charles Harry Whedbee, you'll soon understand his love for the people and the history of the Outer Banks. For decades, the folk tales of Charles Harry Whedbee have been available wherever you care to look on the Outer Banks. Their popularity has transcended Whedbee's loyal readership among North Carolinians and visitors from the Northeast and the Midwest. Charles Harry Whedbee was an elected judge in his native Greenville, North Carolina, for thirty-plus years, but his favorite place was the Outer Banks, Nags Head in particular. Whedbee was the author of five folklore collections. He died in 1990.
