They are the Sentinels. Three races descended from ancient guardians of mankind, each possessing unique abilities in their battle to protect humanity against their eternal foes: the Synestryn. Now a warrior must protect his onetime enemy—without succumbing to his darkest desires. Lyka Phelan is a Slayer, sent to live among her enemy to guarantee lasting peace with the Theronai. Yet she has a secret—and it could make her a slave to their power. But when a pack of Synestryn destroys her home and captures her packmates, Lyka realizes her freedom is a small price to pay for the safety of her people. So she strikes a bargain with the leader of the Theronai—one that reveals her true identity and binds her to him forever. Joseph thought he knew better than to tangle with the beautiful, hot-blooded Lyka. One misstep could send their races straight back to war. But now he has no choice other than to help her. Forced to protect her with his life, Joseph finds himself increasingly drawn to Lyka. As they risk everything in their fight against the demons, he realizes he must convince her to surrender to him completely—otherwise she will never truly be his.

What happens when a staid duke with a tragic past meets an accident-prone young lady just waiting for the day when she comes into her inheritance? Anything! What the Duke Wants is everything a Regency Romance should be – charming, witty, suspenseful, and above all ... sexy. Amy Quinton brings you Book 1 of her spicy new Regency series, Agents of Change. She is from trade. He is a duke and a spy with a name to restore and a mystery to solve. England, 1814: Miss Grace Radclyffe is an oftentimes hilariously clumsy 20-year-old orphan biding her time living with her uncle until she is old enough to come into her small inheritance. Much to her aunt’s chagrin, she isn’t reserved (not with her shocking! tendency to befriend the servants), sophisticated (highly overrated if one cannot run around barefoot outside), or graceful (she once flung her dinner into a duke’s face... by accident, of course). But she is practical (owning a fashion house is in her future, unless someone foils her plans...) and in love... maybe... perhaps... possibly... The Duke of Stonebridge is a man with a tragic past. His father died mysteriously when he was twelve years old amid speculation suggesting that the old duke was ‘involved’ with another man. He must restore his family name, but on the eve of his engagement to the perfect debutante, he meets his betrothed’s cousin, and his world is turned inside out... No matter; he is always logical (men who follow their hearts and not their heads are foolish) and reserved (his private life is nobody’s business but his own). He isn’t impulsive (it always leads to trouble), charming (that’s his best friend, the Marquess of Dansbury’s, area of expertise). Or in love... maybe... perhaps... possibly... Can he have what he wants and remain respectable? Can she trust him to be the man she needs? Content Notes: Spicy, Historical, Regency, Suspense

STOP. RIGHT THERE. WAIT, NO. A LITTLE TO THE LEFT. Before you read any further, let this be a warning to you: If you happen to be looking for a beautifully crafted anthology of pieces written by distinguished and well-respected authors, this is not the book for you. If you happen to be looking for an exciting picture book detailing the ripping adventures of a frog and its friends, this is probably not the book for you, either. And if you happen to be looking for a cake recipe, a large snowshoe, bacon-shaped pencils, or rabbit carcasses, you should probably look elsewhere (or see a doctor). But, on the other hand, if you happen to be looking for a collection of stories, poems, essays, and other assorted compositions from a gradeful of teenagers, you need not look any further. This book is for you.

Mr. Roundabout, says a lady sitting by me, "how comes it that in your books there is a certain class (it may be of men, or it may be of women, but that is not the question in point)--how comes it, dear sir, there is a certain class of persons whom you always attack in your writings, and savagely rush at, goad, poke, toss up in the air, kick, and trample on?"
