Maxim Reznik is the alpha king of a land ravaged by war from without and traitors from within. The barrier that keeps his shifters safe from attacking humans is on the brink of collapse, and the only one who can save his kingdom is the wolf who betrayed Maxim years before – his omega and ex-lover – Sasha Volkav. When Sasha severed their mate bond, Maxim never thought he’d see the omega wolf again. Now Maxim has a wife, a kingdom and a mess of responsibilities, but Sasha needs Maxim’s help. While Sasha ignites old passions Maxim swore died years ago, trusting the omega is a different matter entirely. Sasha might be an omega, but he’s not weak by any means. A curse grants him unimaginable powers that come at a high price – they’re slowly killing him. If Sasha breaks the curse he can save Maxim’s kingdom and his own life. The only problem is he needs his ex-mate’s help to do so, and Maxim isn’t the same alpha Sasha remembers. Years of betrayal have hardened Maxim’s heart, and if Sasha can’t gain Maxim’s forgiveness all is lost. Lust sizzles between Sasha and Maxim, but can they repair their severed bond and fall in love again before it’s too late? Contains graphic gay sex and violence.

Book Three in the critically acclaimed The Fire Sermon trilogy—The Hunger Games meets Cormac McCarthy’s The Road in this richly imagined post-apocalyptic series by award-winning poet Francesca Haig. The apocalypse has come and gone, and now every person is born a twin: one a strong Alpha, one a mutated Omega. The Omegas live in segregation, cast out by their families as soon as their mutation becomes clear. Forced to live apart, they are ruthlessly oppressed by their Alpha counterparts. The only thing that keeps the Alphas at bay is the fact that whenever one twin dies, so does the other. In this thrilling conclusion to The Fire Sermon trilogy, Cass, Piper, and Zoe have discovered that Elsewhere exists, and it’s more real and more complicated than any of them could have imagined. Now, they must race to prevent the Alphas from destroying what might be the only salvation for the Omegas. The end to their lifelong discrimination is in sight, but before she can be free, Cass must overcome her loyalty to her Alpha twin, Zach, her most dangerous enemy. But if they’re not careful, both will die in the struggle for power.
Sometimes...being a hero hurts. Vann was thrilled for this alpha, Dryden claiming his mate, and now expecting a pup. Thanks to the alpha-beta link between them, the only downside was how much Dryden's happiness emphasized Vann's own loneliness. There was a wolf that caught Vann's eye, possibly his fated mate, but Vann couldn't claim a male. It was too engrained in him to seek out a female mate. An alpha female.Then, the unimaginable happened. Once again, Arri was abducted, and held captive. Except this time, Vann was as much a prisoner as Arri. Day after day, Vann endured Kale's cruel torture so that Arri would be as safe as possible. And the pup was soon coming......and Vann's vow as alpha guardian took on a whole new meaning. Unable to bear the shame, and guilt of his actions, and unwilling to return to Woodlynn to face his alpha, Vann fled, abandoning Dryden now that the male had his mate back safe, and sound.*~*~*~*Dryden was beyond worried that his lead beta, his alpha guardian--his best friend--had disappeared without a trace. Knowing what drove the male to take off didn't matter to Dryden. Vann had saved his mate, his family. He'd fulfilled his vow, and then some. Dryden was indebted to Vann, and missed the beta desperately, more than he thought possible.But Vann's disappearance was only the tip of the iceberg. There was no peace for his family, he was depending on Rovyn more, and more, and yet, couldn't because the beta had claimed his mate, another male omega, and needed time with Anrean.Then there was Border pack, his brother Massey having stepped down, and gone home, leaving Dryden as alpha to both Woodlynn, and Border. Not something that was going over well with the Border wolves. Even Kasp, a psychotic wolf that once belonged to Woodlynn a few years ago was challenging his right to lead Border as the alpha who bested Sbrel.And to top it all off, Truin, one of his beta-in-trainings, and Vann's fated mate, had left in search of the missing alpha-guardian, without permission.His life in chaos, Dryden wasn't sure what was going to happen. Would he defeat the challengers bent on destroying him? Would he, and Arri ever have time to raise their pup without constant threats?Would Vann ever return?
The final book of the Bible, Revelation prophesies the ultimate judgement of mankind in a series of allegorical visions, grisly images and numerological predictions. According to these, empires will fall, the "Beast" will be destroyed and Christ will rule a new Jerusalem. With an introduction by Will Self.

Soulshaping is the inspiring memoir of an archetypal "male warrior"–a trial lawyer–who struggled to find his heart and a more authentic, soulful path. Rivetingly personal and profoundly universal, this book is for anyone who has heard a whisper of something truer calling out to them amid the distractions of modern life. Jeff Brown’s dramatic and often funny story takes readers through remarkably human experiences–emotional, physical, and economic–as he vividly recounts his troubled childhood, his success in apprenticing with Canada’s top criminal lawyer, and his ultimate decision to leave the law and begin an inner journey to discover his soul’s purpose. A work of courageous self-creation, Soulshaping reminds us that we are all truly connected, that our seemingly isolated struggles are actually part of the shared human challenge to live a life that is heart-centered and soul-driven. Both down-to-earth and magically mystical, Soulshaping will meet you where you live–and where you long to live.

She can remember as far back as the age of 3 years old. She remembers being often beaten by her sister and having her fingers burned atop a gas stove as punishment. On the outside, she was an average little girl. But on the inside, she struggled with an addiction. When she was ten years old, her mother died suddenly, leaving her alone in the world and feeling like nobody loved her. Growing up, she was verbally and emotionally abused by the man who should have been her protector. The combination of a growing sexual addiction and her desperate need to feel loved led to years of promiscuity. She sought fulfillment in sex, partying, and working in a strip club. She had always been a church girl, attending Sunday services and Bible Study during the week, but it wasn't until she began to read the Word of God that she began to feel convicted of the life she was living. Eventually, she got tired of the never-ending cycles of getting hurt and hurting others. She grew tired of the emptiness she felt after meaningless sex. She gave her life to Christ, and in Him, she found freedom, healing, and purpose. She is me.

Seattle spinal surgeon Dr. David Hanscom focuses on an aspect of chronic pain that the medical world has largely overlooked: you must calm your nervous system in order to get better. More than any other book about pain, Back in Control reveals how to quiet a turbocharged central nervous system and make a full recovery, with or without surgery. Dr. Hanscom shares the story of his own journey out of chronic pain and offers a treatment paradigm that has evolved from his personal experience, as well what he has learned from his patients, hundreds of whom have moved beyond managing pain to becoming pain free. This book will enable those suffering from chronic pain to regain control of their care and life. This revised 2nd edition reflects the last few years of neuroscience research. It is becoming increasingly clear that the brain processes mental and physical pain in a similar manner. As anxiety drops, pain will diminish. Dr. Hanscom has observed that these principles apply to any chronic pain condition.
