Roark Miller protects people for a fee. A substantial one. It’s a fair exchange. His expertise in security for their money. Socialites. Diplomats. Famous athletes. He doesn’t ask questions once the check clears. No matter how screwed up the job gets, it’s still less stressful than his days as a homicide detective in Detroit. Roark had blurred the lines between right and wrong too many times to pick up his badge again. But his past won’t stay buried for long.
Demi Kay finds herself choking on a cloud of body spray in a bar crawling with college-aged kids. It was meant as a night of celebration but turns quickly to a nightmare she can’t wait to escape. The only silver lining is the attractive bodyguard who looks equally disappointed with the establishment.
Roark and Demi find they have far more in common than their mutual distain for the party scene. When Roark realizes Demi is a victim from a case he’d consulted on a decade ago, he knows trouble is just around the corner. Mysterious threats turn to violence and Roark is the only thing standing between Demi and danger. But will he be enough?

From USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes a breathtaking historical romance trilogy set during the Gilded Age, featuring three American sisters who set sail for London to capture aristocratic husbands.
American heiress Sophia Wilson leaves Old New York for a Season in London. Her goal: to marry into the English aristocracy and help improve her family’s social standing in America. Sophia knows her marriage will be a business transaction—her father will provide a generous financial settlement in exchange for a title—but secretly, what she desires most of all is to marry for love.
Love is the last thing on James Langdon’s mind. The darkly handsome Duke of Wentworth comes from a menacing past and has learned to avoid his passions at all cost. But his castle in the north is falling into disrepair and what he needs is a swift cash infusion, not to mention an heir. A business transaction with a beautiful American heiress seems the perfect solution.
All goes according to plan until James finds himself enchanted by his spirited new wife, who demands far more from him than the title of duchess. Sophia wants his heart, but his heart is hidden away, shrouded in the darkness of ominous family secrets. James will go to any lengths to protect the dukedom. Soon, he and Sophia must choose between the marriage they thought they wanted and the passion-filled union that could change them forever.

Investing for Beginners: A Short Read on the Basics of Investing and Dividends (investing 101, Investing for Dummies, Money, Power, Elon Musk, Tony Robbins, Entrepreneur, Banking B
Most people believe that the true key to becoming ultra-wealthy lies in some sort of “secret,” a kind of well-kept secret that’s extremely “hush-hush,” and only realized by a small amount of the elite, or a privileged few. But, actually, this isn’t the case at all. In fact, these super-rich individuals realize that their money needs to work for them and so they learn how to take what are known as “calculated” risks.
The super-rich are definitely not psychics, nor do they have a “magic” secret that they hold close to their own kind. In fact, their real secret lies in the fact that they know what simple investing mistakes should be avoided. And, in truth, these mistakes are common knowledge, even among those investors who are not particularly wealthy at all.
Investing properly is a guided, purposeful tool for building and adding to wealth, but it is not only for the rich. Actually, anyone can get started quite easily, and there are multiple avenues that make it easy to begin, with small amounts to start up a portfolio. Additionally, what differentiates using investment (as opposed to gambling) is that it takes a period of time for the “magic” to happen. Therefore, it is not a get-rich-quick scheme, at all. I want us to be clear on that point from the get-go.
By the end of this book, you’ll have a great understanding of what investing is, and you will know how the magic of compounding works too. We’ll take a look at other options that you might find useful, so then you’ll have the knowledge you need before you get started with your own investing. Again, thank you for joining me here; it’s my pleasure to guide you through this important information. I believe that knowledge is power, and I hope that you’ll feel more comfortable once you get the real gist of how it all works, and how it can work really well for you.

When the ex-wife of notorious Hollywood bad boy actor Jeb Pott is found murdered, the case looks pretty straightforward: the two had just gone through an acrimonious divorce, she was found murdered in his lodge, the actor covered in her blood, the knife next to him on the bed. But a few loose ends bother Odelia more than they should, and when Jeb’s daughter asks her to exonerate her father, Odelia decides to take on the case and prove the impossible.
Aiding and abetting her are her vlogging grandmother, who has a personal score to settle, and Odelia’s extensive cat menagerie. Max and his friends are a little distracted, though, by the three kittens someone has decided to leave on Odelia’s doorstep. It’s not that Max hates kittens—but if he’s totally honest he doesn’t like them all that much either.
Will the kittens win over Max’s heart? Did A-list actor Jeb really kill his ex-wife? And are the ‘vitamins’ Grandma Muffin keeps popping really as innocent as she claims them to be? Find out in Purrfect Betrayal, a cat cozy mystery unlike any other. Come for the mystery, stay for the humor, the warmth, and the feels. Oh, and the kittens, of course.
