Evander Lennox doesn't do anything he doesn't want to do. At least, that is, until he's sent to prison. The four years he's incarcerated, he's had no choice but to do the things he's asked to do, when he's asked to do them. And now, if he doesn't, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell. Once he's free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren't as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He's just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively. *** Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere. When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she's finally getting to meet the family she's always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas-giving her almost everything she's ever wanted. Just when she thinks she's making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one. After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she's being used. Vowing to herself that she'll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn't prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge. *** It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn't as bad as it could be. This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows. But it doesn't take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association. Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side-the loss of everything she's worked so hard for. Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he's not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

“Motörhead, remember me now, Motörhead, alright!” Lemmy, Phil, Fast Eddie and the Rise of Motörhead is the first book to celebrate the classic-era Motörhead lineup of Lemmy Kilmister, “Fast” Eddie Clarke, and Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor. Through interviews with all of the principal troublemakers, Martin Popoff celebrates the formation of the band and the records that made them legends: Motörhead, Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades, No Sleep ’til Hammersmith, and Iron Fist. An in-depth coda brings the story up to date with the shocking recent deaths of Taylor and Kilmister. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 16.0px Times; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Motörhead comes to life in this book as bad-luck bad boys — doused in drink and drugs, most notably speed — incapable of running their lives right, save for Fast Eddie, who is charged with holding things together. Popoff also examines the heady climate of music through the band’s rise to prominence during the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, with detailed reflection on Motörhead’s unique position in the scene as both originators and embattled survivors who carried on the renegade spirit of those times.

He's wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry. Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry. He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed. She's wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying. Nothing ever goes right for Lark. Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate. That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out. They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman's old one. That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger. It's been two years since she's felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly.

The next thing she knows, she's spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn't be better-even though she still doesn't have a car. She thinks she's in the clear, that she's got it all figured out... well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again. Now the ball is in her sexy stranger's court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over. Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.

Get out! He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He's always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy. It's been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her. He couldn't be more wrong. The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants. Maybe he should've gone into the auto-recovery business after all. I hate you. Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything. Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her-morning, noon, and night. Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she's breaking a little more inside every single day. Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she's constantly reminded of exactly what she's missing-the other half of her soul. Just when she thinks things can't get worse, she's sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she's lost all over again. Don't ever let me go. Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too...not. One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he's missing-literally and figuratively-and suddenly he's back at square one. The only problem with being back at square one? He won't be able to leave her a second time. Especially since the first time around he didn't have a child with her to consider.
