It's May 1996 and Marietta High School English teacher Kate MacCreadie is almost at the end of her rope, torn between the demands of her work and her heavy involvement in helping her younger brother Rob and his wife Melinda take care of their five young children on the MacCreadie family ranch. When Marietta's fine-looking new sheriff, Harrison Pearce, pulls Kate over for her third traffic violation in as many months, they both know it's a sign that something has to give. Kate finds it almost a relief to be told by this calm, strong man to get her life in order, and then she just keeps on seeing him - at school after there's been a suspicious break-in, on the evening of the prom when he's off duty and driving his nephew and friends to the event in one of his brother's gorgeous vintage cars. Late that night, after prom is over, a tragedy at River Bend Park brings Kate and Harrison together yet again, and this time, in the highly charged atmosphere, Kate discovers that she never wants to let him go. But with his divorce still fresh, is Harrison ready for someone new?

He had always been the most respected since he was a child. Others could only obey him and had cultivated an incomparable king's grandeur since a young age. He had originally been disdainful towards a mere clerk, but unfortunately, what he met was her — Yu Lingli, a capable and intelligent "Husky"! He had never relented to breaking his habit, and he was no exception to her. While competing in wisdom and courage, he discovered that the more he interacted with her, the more fond he became of her. In the end, he was unable to offer any advice to himself. He had spent his entire life protecting her. She had racked her brains for him, and only wanted to stay far away from him.

Through the porta cabin window Thomas captures images of the assault with a camera he has with him. One of the images is of a charismatic American preacher, so called, who is standing in the doorway of the trailer angrily gesticulating at the woman. The builder intervenes and a fight occurs in which he holds his own against the woman's assailant but when a second thug appears on the scene - from out of the blue - Thomas is overwhelmed by the bigger man. His quietus is approaching but he is saved from serious injury by the woman who takes off one of her shoes and using it club fashion batters the thug into submission.

A #1 New York Times bestseller and the first novel in a brand-new series—from bestselling author Abbi Glines—about a small Southern town filled with cute boys in pickup trucks, Friday night football games, and crazy parties that stir up some major drama. To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer. Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away. As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else. West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

In 1975 Saturday Night Live came out of the gate swinging, with a daring, bold, and rebellious vibe that was new to television back then. With a cast of comedic actors known as the Not Ready for Prime Time Players, television producer Lorne Michaels launched a style of live television comedy that appealed specifically to young viewers with a taste for questioning authority—and that style stood the test of time. From hilarious characters—the Conehead family, Wayne Campbell, the Spartan cheerleaders, the Target Lady, and Stefon—to impressions of US presidents and politicians performed with spot-on precision, the late-night comedy show has shaped American comedy for four decades. With millions of loyal fans across a wide range of viewership demographics, Saturday Night Live has made a significant impact on American culture. It introduced catchphrases such as "Well, isn’t that special?" and "More cowbell!" It influenced public opinion through satirical political sketches and news commentary. It provided rich material for box office hits such as The Blues Brothers and Wayne’s World. It created megastars out of dozens of comedians. And in the process, the show earned an impressive roster of accolades including thirty-six Primetime Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, and three Writers Guild of America Awards. It's been ranked as one of the greatest shows of all time and has been inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Discover how the SNL brand of raucous humor has stayed meaningful and fresh over the years and continues to draw audiences today.

When Scott Fellows became a Christian at the age of 28 he decided to use his musical skills for God's glory rather than his own. The result is this no holds barred account of 20 years of front line ministry in the tough pubs and clubs of northern England with a few churches thrown in as well. This personal memoirs of hundreds of gigs sometimes hilarious sometimes serious but always uplifting are described with a forthright honesty that gives the reader a real insight into what happens when people are confronted with the Gospel when they least expect it. It provides a powerful challenge to the idea that the story of Jesus has no relevance to the modern world.
