With over six million books in print worldwide, Robert Jordan is an international bestselling sensation. Yet even the most rabid Jordan fans don't know that the blockbuster talent behind The Path of Daggers is also one of the finest storytellers to take on the Old West. Written under the name Jackson O' Reilly, Cheyenne Raiders is a stunning tale of the bravery, and discovery of love in the time of war. Yale-educated Thomas McCabe accepts a position with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and is soon sent to live among a nomadic tribe in the wilds of Missouri. After saving the life of a young brave, Thomas is grudgingly accepted by the Cheyenne-until he falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful Night Bird Woman. Determined to marry the girl he has seen all his life in his dreams, Thomas must first prove himself by passing the excruciatingly painful and spiritually breathtaking Test of Fire. It is through this initiation that he is visited by a Spirit Vision, one that carries a message powerful enough not only to teach Thomas the true meaning of courage, but to remake the lives of the proud-and imperiled-people he will come to call family. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

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.
