I’ve always been the person that does whatever someone tells me I can’t.  Can’t graduate with a four-point-oh? Check. Can’t win a modeling contract without trying? Did it. Check. Can’t make it in the pro football league? Triple check with an MVP Award on top. When my best friend told me to stay away from his little sister, Layla, it didn’t sound like a challenge. Then again, I’d never seen her before. He obviously wasn’t thinking about who he was talking to if he believed I could ignore her. I obviously wasn’t thinking of him at all when I fell in love with her either.  Fact of the matter is: I not only fell harder than a quarterback sack on a Sunday night game, but I did us one better. Kind of like that MVP award, only not so shiny. Sort of like my Player of the Year title, except the only thing I’m walking away with is an ex-best friend and a woman that hates my guts.  It’s okay. Just tell me I can’t win her back.  I’m Branch “Lucky” Best and today’s my lucky day.  Lucky Number Eleven is a STANDALONE NOVEL.

Modern-day Prince Adrian of Monaforte has a most old-fashioned problem: his demanding mother wants him wed to her best friend's daughter, the hard-partying Serena. When his refusal falls on deaf ears, Adrian decides it's time for him to slip away from his gilded cage and figure out his life, all on his own.

For any girl that's ever held out hope that some day her prince would come…or better yet, hoped that some day she'd come to him.

Descartes’s revolutionary treatise on reason and scientific thought, which sparked radical breakthroughs in mathematics, philosophy, and metaphysics After he finished school, René Descartes was left with more doubts than certainties. His Jesuit education included some of the best teaching available in mathematics, physics, and letters, and yet Descartes found the foundations of his schooling hollow. Determined to discover for himself what was real, he spent the next nine years traveling through Europe, interacting with locals of all walks of life, including nobles, soldiers, and laborers, in search of the breadth of experience that would later inspire his greatest work: Discourse on Method . When it was first published, the book offered a remarkable new approach to gaining knowledge based on reason and skepticism, the steps for which Descartes lays out sequentially, from the deconstruction of all previously held beliefs to the slow and methodical rebuilding of fact anchored in the first and most innate truth: I think, therefore I am.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices. René Descartes (1596–1650) was a French philosopher and mathematician. Considered the father of modern philosophy, Descartes is perhaps most famous for the dictum I think, therefore I am . This notion was a groundbreaking departure from the Aristotelian school of thought that had been dominant up to that point. Descartes is also credited with founding analytic geometry.

This book provides practical advice on how to achieve this. But it also offers an imaginative holistic theoretical framework for an understanding of the nature of the universe, the psychological history of the human race and the meaning of life. What Readers Have Said About "How to Be Free" : "I just wanted to thank you for publishing 'How to Be Free'. It helped me through many hard times that have recently occurred. My self-esteem has been raised because of you." "This is a book that is full of insight and as a psychology major, I would highly recommend this book for all open minds."

It made me think, self reflect and take a deeper look at my own self." "I found your book particularly helpful at a low point in my life... You have given me new hope..."

Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she'd ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf – a werewolf who has bitten her.  Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids – certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with. Even when she's bitten by a massive animal after a reckless night of teenage adventure and her body begins to change in mystifying ways, she can't force herself to believe in what she's convinced is impossible. Little does she realize she's been infected with a disease a little more permanent than the rabies she feels fortunate to have not contracted. Lycanthropy. Her fierce denial is soundly shattered, however, when she is simultaneously saved and kidnapped by Bastian and his pack. Forced to leave small town Iowa behind and adjust to their way of life in a hidden society, Katherine must also deal with fighting the pull she feels towards the man – or wolf, rather – who has bitten her and disrupted her life so completely.

If she isn’t careful, it won’t just be her life she loses at the end of the month, but her heart as well...

But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.  Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.  Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling makeup at the mall.

Peter's childhood best mate Dave Tindall is now a police constable in Clarke's Flat. With Aboriginal Sam Saturday, an erstwhile stockman on the former Clancy cattle station, Dave convinces Peter to help him prove the 1960s 'suicides' of Dave's father and another man were, in truth, murders. Peter's quest for evidence stirs up more than he bargained for - including his own shameful past. Will Peter Clancy succumb to despair and bolt, or will he expose Clarke's Flat sins and despotism, and claim his own redemption? 'Peter seemed agitated and staggered towards them, then stopped abruptly. He wanted to face up to them, but his feet wouldn't move. He looked at Sally again and saw fear in her eyes. He wanted to scream. Peter wanted to hit Chong and Gibbo but he felt an emptiness envelop him, exactly as when he was a child.'
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a compilation of twelve short Sherlock Holmes detective stories.
The story begins in seventeenth - century Salem, Massachusetts, then a Puritan settlement. A young woman, Hester Prynne, is led from the town prison with her infant daughter, Pearl, in her arms and the scarlet letter “A” on her breast. The scarlet letter “A” represents the act of adultery that she has committed; it is to be a symbol of her sin for all to see. She will not reveal her lover’s identity, however, and the scarlet letter, along with her public shaming, is her punishment for her sin and her secrecy.
The novel follows the lives of four sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March — detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters.
