Maia Major is a woman on a mission.

Page: 230

Maia Major is a woman on a mission. When her neighbors at Cougar Canyon Ranch need help, Maia is determined to do what she can. It doesn't matter to her that the Concolor Apex, Carter, has a notorious hatred of humans. It doesn't matter to Maia that she's the only human in the Major Bear Clan. She also doesn't care about the bitter rivalry brewing between her brother, the Alpha of the Major Bear Clan, and Carter, the Apex of the Concolor Pride. Maia's only concern is healing Carter's sick animals.Carter is at a loss. Frustration and helplessness mount when the local town veterinarian is unable to help Carter's ailing team of prized sled dogs. So when Maia Major, sister to his enemy, and skilled veterinarian, shows up on Carter's property, he's forced to play nice. He doesn't like humans, and judging by her scent, Maia is one hundred percent human. Still, she's educated and willing to lend a hand. He'll be polite if he can, he'll be gracious if he must, and he'll tolerate Maia's presence even if it kills him. Carter is wary of Maia's true intentions but can't ignore the fierce protective instincts the little human kicks up the moment she arrives. Determined to accept her help and then be rid of her, he steels himself against Maia's inadvertent charm. Bonds form, ties are cemented, and when Ramsey Major comes calling his sister home, Carter will have to decide if he still hates humans enough to let Maia go. ***A voice shot through the cavernous barn like a shotgun blast. "Who in the hell are you?" Maia jumped and spun to find an angry behemoth stalking toward her. Heart tripping, she instinctively backed up a few steps. She knew better than that. Ramsey had drilled it into her head a thousand times not to run from a predator, and what did she do the first time she encountered one? Christ!Halting her retreat, she squared her shoulders and lifted her chin. "I'm Maia."The man didn't stop advancing, so she tagged on quickly, "Maia Major."Her admission didn't deter the man who only stopped when his chest was three inches from her face. Head craned far back to stare up at him, she added, "Ramsey Major is my brother.""Lie!" the guy boomed.God, he was big. Big like Ramsey but different. Bear shifters were massive, hulking men with bulky muscle, but this guy was leaner. Where Ramsey and the bears at The Den looked like they'd end a fight with one brutal punch, this guy looked like he could go all night. His shoulders weren't as broad as a bear shifter's, but they still looked powerful where they pressed up against his button-up shirt. The top few buttons were undone revealing a thickly muscled neck. Short blond hair was mostly hidden under a ball cap that sat just above speared brows and blazing sky-blue eyes. His square jaw was dusted with a few days' worth of stubble, while his full lips were pressed into a grim line.Fear was thrashing around inside Maia like a captured raven."Who. Are. You? And what are you doing on my property?"Blinking up at him, Maia tried again, cursing the stammer in her voice as she explained, "I-I'm Maia Major. Ramsey Major's sister. I'm here to help with . . ."She didn't get to finish because the guy grabbed her arms and pulled her hard into his body as he lowered his head to sneer, "Lie! You smell nothing like Major, and you're a human!"He called her a human like it was the most disgusting thing on the face of the earth. It had Maia fearing she'd made a terrible mistake.

"Salt sea-water or oil, it's all the same to you!

"Salt sea-water or oil, it's all the same to you! Haven't I put my lamp out long ago? Doesn't the fire on the hearth give light enough? Are your eyes so drowsy that they don't see the dawn shining in upon us more and more brightly? The olives are not yet pressed, and the old oil is getting toward the dregs. Besides, you know how much fruit those abominable thieves have stolen. But sparrows will carry grain into the barn before you'll try to save your master's property!" So Semestre, the ancient house-keeper of Lysander of Syracuse, scolded the two maids, Chloris and Dorippe, who, unheeding the smoking wicks of their lamps, were wearily turning the hand-mills. Dorippe, the younger of the two, grasped her disordered black tresses, over which thousands of rebellious little hairs seemed to weave a veil of mist, drew from the mass of curls falling on her neck a bronze arrow, with which she extinguished the feeble light of both lamps, and, turning to the house-keeper, said: "There, then! We can't yet tell a black thread from a white one, and I must put out the lamps, as if this rich house were a beggar's hut. Two hundred jars of shining oil were standing in the storehouses a week ago. Why did the master let them be put on the ship and taken to Messina by his brother and Mopsus?" "And why isn't the fruit gathered yet?" asked Chloris. "The olives are overripe, and the thieves have an easy task, now the watchmen have gone to Messina as rowers. We must save by drops, while we own more gnarled olive-trees than there are days in the year. How many jars of oil might be had from the fruit that has dropped on the ground alone! The harvest at neighbor Protarch's was over long ago, and if I were like Lysander—" "There would probably be an end of saving," cried the house-keeper, interrupting the girl. "Well, I confess it wasn't easy for me to part with the golden gift of the gods, but what could I do? Our master's brother, Alciphron, wanted it, and there was a great barter. Alciphron is clever, and has a lucky hand, in which the liquid gold we press from the olives with so much toil, and keep so carefully, becomes coined metal. He's like my own child, for I was his nurse. Here in the country we increase our riches by care, patience and frugality, while the city merchant must have farseeing eyes, and know how to act speedily. Even when a boy, my Alciphron was the wisest of Dionysius's three sons, and, if there was anything sweet to be divided, always knew how to get the largest share. When his mother was alive, she once told the lad to give her the best of some freshly-baked cakes, that she might take it to the temple for an offering, and what was his answer? 'It will be well for me to taste them all, that I may be certain not to make a mistake;' and when Clytemnestra—"

WHAT KATY DID is an 1872 children's book written by Sarah Chauncey Woolsey under her pen name Susan Coolidge. This first book was so popular it was followed by “What Katy Did at School”and “What Katy Did Next” - all best sellers in their day. Synopsis: 12-year-old Katy Carr lives with her widowed father and her two brothers and three sisters in Burnet, a small midwestern American town. Her father is a very busy doctor who works long hours; the children are mostly in the care of his sister Aunt Izzie, who is very particular and something of a scold. Bright, headstrong Katy can hardly avoid getting into mischief almost daily under these circumstances, but she is unfailingly remorseful afterward. She behaves somehow kindly to the children and also she dreams of some day doing something "grand" with her life: painting famous pictures, saving the lives of drowning people, or leading a crusade on a white horse. She also wants to be "beautiful, of course, and good if I can." When her mother died four years earlier, Katy promised to be a little mother to her siblings: in practice, she is the kind of big sister who is sometimes impatient or cross with them but leads them into all sorts of exciting adventures. One day Katy wakes in an ill humor, quarrels with her aunt and pushes her little sister so hard that she falls down half a dozen steps. Afterward, sulky and miserable, Katy decides to try out the swing in the woodshed although Aunt Izzie has forbidden it. Had Aunt Izzie actually explained that the swing was unsafe because one of the staples supporting it had cracked, "all would have been right," but she believes that children should unquestioningly obey their elders. Katy swung as high as she could and then, as she tries to graze the roof with her toes, the staples give way and she falls hard, bruising her spine. The lively Katy is now bedridden and suffering terrible pain and bitterness. Her room is dark, dreary, and cluttered with medicine bottles; when her siblings try to comfort her, she usually drives them away. However, a visit from Cousin Helen shows her that she must either learn to make the best of her situation or risk losing her family's love. Helen tells Katy that she is now a student in the "School of Pain" where she will learn lessons in patience, cheerfulness, hopefulness, neatness, and making the best of things. With Cousin Helen's help, Katy makes her room tidy and nice to visit and gradually all the children gravitate to it, coming in to see her whenever they can. She becomes the heart of the home, beloved by her family for her unfailing kindness and good cheer. After two years Aunt Izzie dies and Katy takes over the running of the household. At the end of four years, in a chapter called "At Last", she starts to walk again. 10% of the profit from the sale of this book is donated to charities. =============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: What Katy Did, Susan Coolidge, accident, active, adventures, Aunt Izzie, bad, barn, bed rest, beside, book, Bridget, bright child, Carr, Cecy, children, course, Cousin Helen, cried, Cry, crying, dear, Debby, Dorry, dreadful, Elsie, flowers, girl, great, hair, heart, Imogen, injury, John, Johnnie, Katy, Knight, lessons, little clover, Marianne, Mary, Miss, nice, nursery, Papa, paralysed, Paralyzed, people, Petingill, Philly, play, poor, pretty, rather, run, school, sofa, Spenser, stairs, strange, sweet, swing, tears, thought, tom boy, walk, window,

“It is always sunrise somewhere…” But what happens when the earth suddenly stops rotating? Eternal sunrise, eternal heat! Temps are rising; crops are failing. Mankind is doomed unless they band together physically, emotionally, and sexually! Radio talk show host Jillian Graves takes the lead and forms a delightfully passionate commune where steamy no-holds-barred groupsex is the perfect solution! ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~ “No, Dad. The sun, it’s all wrong.” She swallows, trying gallantly not to panic. “What do you mean the sun is all wrong?” Knowing of his daughter’s innate sense of nature, he gives credence to her alarm and to her words without question. “It’s pushing one o’clock but the shadows on my patio look like eleven in the morning. And I’m just now waking up. I always wake at eleven, you know this.” “You mean the shadows on that great big, honking porch?” He attempts levity. “Yes, that great big honking porch you like so well,” she catches her breath and runs her fingers through her long, blonde hair similar to a lion’s mane. “Daddy, is anything strange happening on the ranch?” Silence, then the man of forty-eight years clears his throat, “A-hmm. Now that you mention it, the horses are out of sorts today. Every last one of them, even Blaze the mule, came in from the fields and are in their stalls. That, and the dog’s kind of extra clingy today, but Bascom is always under foot.” From his venue on the tractor, which he had turned off when his phone vibrated, he turns sideways in his seat to take a look back in the direction of the barn although it’s out of sight, adding, “The horses weren’t asleep the last time I checked on ‘em. Just acting odd is all.” She had been listening attentively, but now redirects the discussion, “Daddy, I know, go look at the sundial I gave you last Father’s Day, the one outside Mamma’s garden. And say hello from me to Bascom.” Without objection, he trots over to his ATV parked nearby, scrubs the ears of the maple syrup colored Labrador Retriever nearly asleep in the passenger seat and hollers, “Jillian says hello, boy. Hold on.” He turns the key that was left, as always, in the ignition, guns a little gas through the motor then wheels toward the main house. The noted sundial is in the back yard, near the entrance to Katy’s garden. Inside a minute, he is on the ground and walks up to the seven-foot-high Gothic sculpture. Drawing near, but mindful to not let his shadow fall on the ground level dial, he observes where the shadow from the high, vertical needle strikes the scale. XI. The sun is still at eleven am. Waves of practical explanations and possible courses of action sweep over him like a zephyr. “You there, Pumpkin?” “Yes, Daddy. What does it say?” she exclaims, a victim of building anxiety over the past minute. “It says eleven o’clock! How is this possible? It’s almost one, like you said.” He checks his watch. Ideas begin to race through his mind and he doubts his own spoken words. Eventually, Jillian breaks the flustered quiet by speaking in vacant thoughts, “I best be getting on in to work. There’ll be lots to do.” “Do us both a favor, Jillian,” he rarely uses her given name. “Don’t let things get too crazy in San Francisco before you hightail it back home. I feel like things are going to get bad, real bad, with people panicking and all. You always have a place here at home. We’ll take good care of each other.”

Would you remember the face of a killer? After divorcing the heir to a media fortune, Juliet Temple chose to keep her high-profile surname to grow her elite event planning business. But when a young woman is found dead and Juliet is drugged at her latest celebrity party, not even the Temple name can protect her. Unable to remember what happened that night, Juliet finds herself in serious danger. Juliet retreats to the Hunter Valley, where she becomes Jet Appleton, Rhodes Family Estate's wedding organiser. Martin Rhodes, winemaker and former detective, is tasked with watching over her, but his son, Dan, knows nothing of Jet's true identity--which is a problem because he's the sort of man who deserves her honesty. As the dark ties holding her to Sydney close in, Jet begins to see her old life--including her controlling ex-husband--in a whole new light. Jet's longing to return to Sydney is proving to be a dangerous desire, and so are her growing feelings for Dan. But not as dangerous as the killer, who is still watching her every move . . .
