Rumours are flying, and Ruby's already not-so-great reputation is heading downhill. Not only that, she's also: * running a bake sale * learning the secrets of heavy-metal therapy * encountering some seriously smelly feet * defending the rights of pygmy goats * and bodyguarding Noel from unwanted advances. In this third instalment to the Ruby Oliver series, Ruby tries to pin down two important things: real friendship, and true love - if such a thing exists.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: The title: "Stumbling in Darkness ~ Separated from God (A journey to the Light) ...is a life summarized. May this book inspire you to seek the LORD God, read His Wordthe Holy Bible, and get to know Him as He reveals Himself to you through the Spirit in Jesus Christ. It is Gods will for all of us to know Him and receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior. In both Testaments God says, I will be their God and they will be My children. (Lev 26:12) - (Rev 21:7) this statement is repeated many times. God desires to have a relationship with each one of us. Hes long suffering patiently waiting for us to come to Him. However, He has a set year, month, day and time when the waiting ends. Take an honest look at yourself and ask do you know the love of God? Do you know Jesus Christ personally? Is your name written in The Book of Life? Are you a slave to addictions, lost in sinful desires? Will you be welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven? Do you put everyone and everything before and above God? We are living in what Scripture calls "the last days" the end of life as we know it. Though it is a world without endas we know itis becoming a memory.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Three love stories, a magical setting—welcome to the village of Lochalshie! This trio of laugh-out-loud romantic comedies set in the Scottish Highlands features the stories of Gaby and Jack, and Katya. When Gaby flees a broken engagement, she takes refuge in a faraway village in the north-west of Scotland. Then fate puts a red-headed man with more than a passing resemblance to her favourite fictional hunk Jamie Fraser in front of her, and sparks fly in Highland Fling. In Highland Heart, Katya’s relationship started promisingly… an-easy-on-the-eye guy who ticks all her boxes for brains and beauty. But their long-distance liaison takes its toll and when there is a charmer who doesn’t bother to hide his attraction to her close by, who will Katya choose? Weddings… three months to organise one and helpful ‘friends’ throwing in their ideas and suggestions left, right and centre. Will our happy couple get their happily ever after in Highland Wedding? If you are a fan of Jill Mansell, Jenny Colgan, Trisha Ashley, Katie Fforde and Sophie Kinsella, the Highland Books trio is your perfect choice for curling up on the couch and losing yourself in the world of Lochalshie. Praise for Highland Fling: “It's a great mix of funny moments and that 'does he like me' awkwardness. This book is full of witty dialogue, quirky characters you just know you'd recognise if you met them, and scenery that comes to life, making you want to hop in your car and go there.” “Took only 4 nights to devour this book, and I loved every page. The story and characters were very credible, in that the lead man is somebody I wouldn’t mind the “love guru” setting me up with. A great funny romantic read, ideal for holidays or a rainy day in.” “I loved this book. It's a perfect cosy read. I loved the Scottish setting, with all of the colourful and funny characters.” Reviews of Highland Heart: “Loved the second instalment of this delightful Scottish drama. Highly recommend both books for an instant Highland getaway.” “An excellent, heart-warming rom-com with all of the funniest characters from the first plus some great new ones. I loved seeing Lochhalsie from Katya's point of view this time. Funny, sweet and romantic.” “Great storytelling with characters I really warmed to. I so wanted Katya to be all loved up that I couldn’t put it down until I found out who’d she chosen. And the banter between the villagers was classic.”

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Murder. Love. Duty. During the Qing Dynasty, betrayals, secrets, and lies often lead to murder. And only one man can solve the empire's most desperate cases - if he can convince the one woman he can't resist to help him. Books 1-3 of the Qing Dynasty Mysteries featuring Inspector Gong and Lady Li are now available in this exciting boxed set! Murder in the Forbidden City - Book 1 When one of the Empress’s ladies-in-waiting is killed in the Forbidden City, she orders Inspector Gong to find the killer. Unfortunately, as a man, he is forbidden from entering the Inner Court. How is he supposed to solve a murder when he cannot visit the scene of the crime or talk to the women in the victim’s life? He won’t be able to solve this crime alone. The widowed Lady Li is devastated when she finds out about the murder of her sister-in-law, who was serving as the Empress’s lady-in-waiting. She is determined to discover who killed her, even if it means assisting the rude and obnoxious Inspector Gong and going undercover in the Forbidden City. Together, will Lady Li and Inspector Gong be able to find the murderer before he – or she – strikes again? Murder in the British Quarter - Book 2 When a young Chinese woman is murdered within the British Quarter of the foreign legation, Inspector Gong is ordered by the Imperial Court to solve the crime before the incident escalates into war between China and the foreign powers. The only problem? Inspector Gong doesn’t speak English. And he is hardly the type of man to be accepted by the British elite living in Peking. Once again, he must turn to the one woman who can help him. The woman he can’t stop thinking about. Lady Li is trying to forget about Inspector Gong. He’s a danger to herself, her position, and her children’s future. But when he comes once again knocking on her door and asking for her assistance in solving a case, she can’t resist, despite her better judgment. Lady Li’s language and diplomatic abilities allow her to freely enter the world of the Western visitors, but tensions between the foreigners and local people are increasing by the hour. Will Lady Li and Inspector Gong be able to solve the crime without the answer leading China to war? Murder at the Peking Opera - Book 3 After helping Prince Kung avert an international disaster and negotiating with Inspector Gong's mother for his betrothal to Concubine Swan, Lady Li takes a well-deserved evening to enjoy the first public performance by a female Peking opera performer. But her relaxing night out takes a dramatic turn when a murder is committed on stage during the performance. Inspector Gong's attempt at finding a distraction from the troubles in his heart is thwarted when he and Lady Li attend the same opera performance. Thankfully, a murder in front of hundreds of people plunges him into a world usually hidden behind curtains and costumes. The empress has decreed that women can now play female roles in Peking's beloved operas. But few women have been willing to undertake the challenge and risk the wrath of the more conservative opera patrons. When the first woman willing to step into the role of the "dan" becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her co-star, Lady Li begs Inspector Gong to delay in arresting the actress and find the real killer before the woman is executed for the crime. With the future of Chinese theater hanging in the balance, Inspector Gong must try to find the truth among people who mask their real faces for a living.

This book was released on 1999-09-30 with total page 532 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: A fundamental assumption underlying the formation of our most important relationships is that they will persist indefinitely into the future. As an acquaintanceship turns into a friend ship, for example, both members of this newly formed interpersonal bond are likely to expect that their interactions will become increasingly frequent, diverse, and intimate over time. This expectation is perhaps most apparent in romantically involved couples who, through a variety of verbal and symbolic means, make explicit pledges to a long-lasting relationship. In either case, it is clear that these relationships represent something valuable to the individuals in volved and are pursued with great enthusiasm. Virtually all close relationships are formed within the context of mutually rewarding in teractions and/or strong physical attraction between partners. Friends and romantically in volved couples alike are drawn to one another because of similarity of attitudes, interests, and personality and, quite simply, because they enjoy one another's company. This enjoyment, cou pled with the novelty that characterizes new relationships, almost makes the continuation of the relationship a foregone conclusion. As relationships progress, however, their novelty fades, conflicts may arise between partners, negative life events may occur, and the satisfaction that previously characterized the relationships may diminish.
