The last thing Amy Haven needs is a husband. She already has an eccentric aunt who moved in and shows no signs of leaving, a sister who’s pushing for a promotion, and a caseload of the nation’s most charismatic and scandal-prone men. As one of DC’s top political fixers, she barely has time to sleep, never mind find a man.

Billionaire playboy Ethan Cole needs a wife. To change his image and seal the deal of a lifetime, Ethan needs to become a family man… fast. So he turns to the one woman he thinks is up for the job: Amy. After all, they’ve always had great chemistry, and she knows his secrets better than anyone… well, most of them, anyway.

What starts off as a simple business deal quickly snowballs into something much more. As passions flare and sharp words fly, Amy and Ethan find that maybe their marriage is more than just convenient.

Political fixer Callie Haven needs a break. After a close call with an amorous blackmailer, she decides she needs to escape the high pressure world of DC politics. Instead of a vacation, Callie's boss (and overbearing older sister) gives her another job: keep scandal prone billionaire playboy Logan Harris out of the press. What was supposed to be an easy job turns out to be much, much more.

One of the nation's most eligible bachelors, Logan Harris doesn't believe in love or relationships. But from the moment he sees Callie at his father's Newport mansion, he wants her. He’s never met anyone like Callie: someone who matches his wit and energy. Intrigued, Logan sets out to win her over.

Despite her best efforts, Callie can’t deny her deep attraction to Logan. At first she writes it off as a bit of harmless fun, but she soon discovers there’s more to it than that. She's falling for Logan. He's trouble personified, and everything she says she doesn't want in a man, but he makes her feel alive in a way she’s never felt before.

When one of Logan's old flames shows up with a scandal that could destroy everything he cares about, including his budding relationship with Callie, he must choose between what he wants and what Callie needs. And when her feelings for Logan directly conflict with her job, will she do what it takes to be with him?

Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon's Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart

James R. Doty MD

Best price for this book: $ 10.39

Buy
The award-winning New York Times bestseller about the extraordinary things that can happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart
 
Growing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart.
 
Doty would go on to put Ruth’s practices to work with extraordinary results—power and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruth’s most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous results—until he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.

 

Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life: How to Finally, Really Grow Up

James Hollis

What does it really mean to be a grown up in today’s world? We assume that once we “get it together” with the right job, marry the right person, have children, and buy a home, all is settled and well. But adulthood presents varying levels of growth, and is rarely the respite of stability we expected. Turbulent emotional shifts can take place anywhere between the age of thirty-five and seventy when we question the choices we’ve made, realize our limitations, and feel stuck— commonly known as the “midlife crisis.” Jungian psycho-analyst James Hollis believes it is only in the second half of life that we can truly come to know who we are and thus create a life that has meaning. In Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life, Hollis explores the ways we can grow and evolve to fully become ourselves when the traditional roles of adulthood aren’t quite working for us, revealing a new way of uncovering and embracing our authentic selves. Offering wisdom to anyone facing a career that no longer seems fulfilling, a long-term relationship that has shifted, or family transitions that raise issues of aging and mortality, Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life provides a reassuring message and a crucial bridge across this critical passage of adult development.
