The plan was flawless. The location for the auction was ideal. My body was toned to perfection. The participants—all billionaires—were chosen carefully. The winner would have one month with me, and for the price of my innocence I would be set for life. Then it all went terribly wrong. The man who bought me is no middle-aged investment banker. He’s a battle-hardened soldier, tough, stern, and unyielding. Now he owns me, and he’s determined to get his money’s worth. He’ll do anything he wants with me, and there’s nothing I can do about it. He’ll spank my bare ass for the slightest defiance, tease my virgin body until I’m soaking wet and desperate, and then claim me as hard and thoroughly as he pleases. I don’t even know if he’ll let me go when the month is over… and I’m not sure I’ll want him to. Publisher’s Note: His to Own is a stand-alone novel which is the third book in the Completely His series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes.

The first three books in the five-book Young Adult novel series is available here in one single package. Follow Jack Erickson as he traverses the world of the paranormal with his family and friends, and learns a thing or two about life along the way. All titles are also available separately. Book 1 - Hawthorn Inn: Jack Erikson doesn’t have great expectations when his mother moves them to an old decrepit inn in a town just as musty, but he’s unprepared for the oddities that start springing out of the rotten woodwork. New friends introduce him to legends and rumors that have swirled around the inn since time-immemorial, and he finds plenty of proof to believe them as strange noises and twisted shadows stalk the halls. Worst of all, his estranged grandfather has invited himself to join them at the inn. Creepy doesn’t begin to describe that black-cloaked gentleman with the pale skin and weird, ever-constant glasses. Old secrets, mysterious sealed-up rooms and creeping shadows abound as Jack tries to manage his new life at Hawthorn Inn. Book 2 - Sanctuary: Adventure and thrills return as Jack Erikson tries to settle down to a calm, relaxing life at Hawthorn Inn. He doesn’t get that time to relax, though, when the inn receives its first guest even before it opens and his mom’s investors arrive just a week before the big Halloween party the inn is hosting. Tensions rise and relationships evolve as Jack is thrown into more mystery and mayhem. Book 3 - Ghost Woods Disembodied screams. Rumors of curses. Hidden wells long forgotten. Those are a few of the mysteries rising from the fog around the Ghost Woods, the stretch of trees surrounding Hawthorn Inn and the small town of Sanctuary. Jack again finds himself the focus of the eerie happenings as he makes new allies and learns more about his strange grandfather. Shadows lengthen and the danger deepens as Jack and his friends try to stay one step ahead of their adversary.

This is the first full translation of Marino Sanudo Torsello's Secreta fidelium Crucis to be made into English. The work itself is a piece of crusading propaganda following the fall of Acre in 1291, written between 1300 and 1321, but it includes much of historical relevance along with interesting observations on the early history of Jerusalem and the Crusader Kingdom. The translation is based upon the text edited by Jacques Bongars in 1611. There is an introduction that contextualises the book, its author, his sources and his audience. The notes provide essential information to clarify internal textual references and allusions, as well as the role of Biblical references in Sanudo's grand design. The index is designed to make this detailed text usable and accessible. In this, his major work, Sanudo advocated the conquest of Egypt as the means to regain Jerusalem for the Latins and worked through his points with considerable detail alongside references to 13th-century Mediterranean history, especially involving Louis IX of France and Charles of Anjou, king of Naples. Books I and II give considerable detailed discussion of the concept, plan and costs of his proposed crusade. Book III provides an outline history of the crusades and the crusader states. It is derived from a wide-reading of other sources especially of William of Tyre, and, for events after 1184 on the Eracles, the letters of James of Vitry, and Sanudo's own experiences in the east. Throughout, the work contains a staggering amount of cartographical, ethnographical, geographical, and nautical information, as well as numerous unique insights into historical events and personalities of the late 13th century, not only in Outremer but in Western Europe.

Book 1 (Plough) followed an exiled individual’s search for inner coherence in an incoherent and violent world more than 1000 years ago. Book 2 (Growth) witnessed the establishment of a sustainable harmony between a community and the land upon which they had lived for three or four centuries but within and beyond which community were the seeds of its own decay. Book 3 (Harvest) shows a far more developed and structured society, which comprises several clear levels, from the rulers and the priesthood who impose order, through the artists, artisans, and peasants, down to the untouchables, the people of the mud, about whom it is forbidden to even speak. The story follows three main characters: Kimi, the principal courtesan of the ruler; Nohbul, the ferryman, and his family who had fallen from grace and seek to re-establish themselves in a state of grace; and Seth, a mute. The society comes under threat from external, and foreign, influences and from the volcano, The Blameless, in the shadow of which the society had evolved. The story is told on five levels, all but the final chapter having five parts. They each start with a section called The Names, on historical martyrs who are not well known, evidence of the lost tribes of Israel and the tribes of the Roma, who between them represent the two major diaspora in the history of human society. This is followed by a poem, and then the story of one of each of twenty-six masks which were part of the dome of a grand building buried perhaps centuries earlier, after a convulsion of the earth. There is then an Anecdote about events that may or may not concern residents of the society at the heart of the book, and, finally the story itself. Each of these ‘levels’ can be read as a ‘sequence’ in themselves or in the order in which they are presented in the book. Harvest takes place along the river which was a mountain spring in Book 1 and a vital stream in Book 2.

Philostorgius (born 368 B.C.E.) was a member of the Eunomian sect of Christianity, a nonconformist faction deeply opposed to the form of Christianity adopted by the Roman government as the official religion of its empire. He wrote his twelve-book Church History, the critical edition of the surviving remnants of which is presented here in English translation, at the beginning of the fifth century as a revisionist history of the church and the empire in the fourth and early-fifth centuries. Sometimes contradicting and often supplementing what is found in other histories of the period, Christian or otherwise, it offers a rare dissenting picture of the Christian world of the time.

Callie Hoffman has a good life in Kingdom, Kansas. She's engaged to Levi Housler, the new pastor of Kingdom Mennonite Church, and she spends her days working with Lizzie Housler, her friend and soon-to-be sister-in-law, at the town cafe. When a body is discovered on the road outside Kingdom and the deceased turns out to be the victim of a serial killer, the new county sheriff begins questioning Kingdom residents. Unsettled at the prospect of a killer in Kingdom, Callie is desperate to find answers for herself, especially when her own fiance seems to know more about the murder than he's telling. As the town battles an entirely unforeseen danger and Callie's very life is threatened, the stakes are as high as they've ever been and the people of Kingdom must learn anew to put their trust in God alone. "Small-town life meets a dangerous outside world in this taut, suspenseful story, the third (after Inescapable and Unbreakable) in Mehl's Mennonite-flavored romantic suspense series.
