Rain's been washing blood off her hands for far too long. After five years, she accepts the fact that she's still a little crazy but feels as if she's finally gotten it all under control. Parties, drugs, and sex flood Jude's life, and music and scandal run through his veins. He's the son of a rock god and grandson of a jazz legend. It's no surprise that his own star is on the rise, and with so many groupies vying for his attention, his childhood best friend Rain keeps him anchored in reality. She's nothing like him-an art student with no idea of her own beauty, who would rather curl up with a sci-fi novel than party in the spotlight. Everything changes when she asks him for a unique favor: she wants him to take her virginity. He's more than willing to oblige, but things get complicated when his pervy father gets involved. Meanwhile, intense feelings rise to the surface, ones neither Rain nor Jude are prepared to deal with. If their relationship has any chance for survival, she must finally confront the demons of her past, and he must face the addictions of the present. When the smoke clears, will they find that sex between best friends was a good idea, or will they discover they had been Flirting With Chaos the entire time?
Held captive by the sins of its citizens, the small town of Hollybrook has been lulled to sleep by a pastor preaching complacency. Pastor Greg Michaels struggles with sexual sin. Entangled with sin herself, Elizabeth Smythe attempts to stamp out wickedness in her adopted niece, Sarah. A steady drinker, Sheriff Knudson eagerly exploits his position. To repay Pastor Greg, who once helped free a girl from a demon, Satan sends his powerful servant Jax Jacobs, who is led by an unseen voice to commit unspeakable evil. In Flirting with Hellfire: The Chronicles of Tobias, Paul Whitfield describes the profound horror unleashed on Hollybrook. But what Jax and his companions did not count on was the intervention of an angel. Forgetting the God they claim to worship, no one calls for divine help until Sarah, an orphaned teenager, remembers the words her father prayed over her. Archangel Tobias joyfully protected God's people until his disobedience interrupted his service. When God approaches him with a new task, Tobias gladly speeds to intervene. And so begins the battle for Hollybrook, a town Flirting with Hellfire. As Tobias seeks to thwart the evildoers, will God hear Sarah's cry? Or will the wickedness of the town condemn it to judgment?
"FLIRTING WITH POTIPHAR'S WIFE - The Seduction Of Western Evangelicalism" exposes the subtle influences and philosophies that have eroded biblical Christianity and have blurred the true nature and character of the church. As a result, much of Evangelicalism has been stripped of its authoritative message. The author contends that the absolute authority of God's inspired Word has been undermined by an evangelical leadership that has replaced it with novel manipulations, popular fads and a market driven philosophy of church growth that offers "sensitive seekers" a comfortable pew, self-gratification and a feel-good religion without sacrifice or commitment. Unlike Joseph of old who fled the seductions of a lustful woman; much of evangelicalism today has succumbed to the hedonistic gibberish and pop psychology of a new paganism. In reality, this is committing spiritual adultery! This book offers a concise overview of the existing crisis along with solutions that are vital to the survival and revival of the evangelical message. Rev. Garry L. Lybeck majored in the fields of pastoral theology, biblical studies and Christian education; attaining a pastoral theology diploma from Central Pentecostal College, a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies degree from Dallas Bible College and a Master of Arts in Ministry degree from Luther Rice Seminary. He is also a graduate of The Institute of Christian Counseling and The New York Institute of Photography. Ordained in 1966, he has served as senior pastor in five churches, (including pioneer church planting), and as Director of Christian Education in the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada. His involvement in Christian ministry and service spans over fortyyears. You are welcome to contact the Author at: www.ChurchInConflict.com

The first installment in Hot in Chicago, a brand-new, sizzling series from Kate Meader that follows a group of firefighting foster siblings and their blazing hot love interests! Savvy PR guru Kinsey Taylor has always defined herself by her career, not her gender. That is, until she moved from San Francisco to Chicago to be with her fiancé who thought she wasn’t taking her “job” of supporting him in his high-powered career seriously enough—and promptly dumped her for a more supportive and “feminine” nurse. Now, as the new assistant press secretary to Chicago’s dynamic mayor, she’s determined to keep her eye on the prize: no time to feel inferior because she’s a strong, kick-ass woman, and certainly no time for men. But that all changes when she meets Luke Almeida, a firefighter as searingly sexy as he is quick-tempered. He’s also the second oldest of the Firefightin’ Dempseys, a family of foster siblings who have committed their lives to the service—if Luke’s antics don’t get him fired first. When Luke goes one step too far and gets into a bar brawl with the Chicago Police Department, Kinsey marches into Luke’s firehouse and lays down the law on orders from the mayor. But at Engine Co. 6, Luke Almeida is the law. And he’s not about to let Kinsey make the rules.

The idea of 'flirting' with space is central to this book. Space is conceptualised as being in constant flux as we make our way through various contexts in our daily lives, and is considered in relation to encounters with complexities and flows of material culture. This book focuses on journeys, which are perceived as dynamic processes of contemporary life and its spaces, and how creativity happens in the inter-relations of space and journeys encourage creativity. Unravelled through a range of empirical case studies of journeys through and encountered with space, this book builds new critical syntheses of the intertwining of space and life. Based on investigations undertaken by the author over the past 20 years, it explores the mundane and the exotic, the 'lay' and the 'artistic', combining and inter-relating them in a diversity of time and expression, fleeting and surviving. Such investigations, using both visual and non-visual material, include examinations of allotment holding, the work of artists, caravanning and tourism, photography and parish maps. The analyses of such seemingly disparate subjects are linked together and build on each other to create a fascinating and original view of humanity's interaction with space. Included are fresh discussions of belonging, disorientation and the working of identity and play. The notion of 'gentle politics' is introduced.
