Finding Glory / Sara Arden.
Finding Glory /  Sara Arden.
Gina Townsend is trying to be a mother to her six-year-old niece, Amanda Jane, but the girl's biological father isn't helping matters. Reed Hollingsworth has returned to Glory, no longer the scruffy, gangly boy Gina remembers, but a sexy and successful man. Reed feels betrayed that neither Townsend sister bothered to tell him he was a father until he had money, but he's not about to shirk his responsibilities. So when he demands Gina move in with him as part of Amanda Jane's custody agreement, he tries not to notice pretty much everything about her--especially the way his solemn-faced daughter laughs when they play together. Raising a child together, Reed and Gina learn that some dreams come and go, but some are a spark that burns eternal.

The world between two covers : reading the globe / Ann Morgan.
The world between two covers : reading the globe / Ann Morgan.
A beguiling exploration of the joys of reading across boundaries, inspired by the author's year-long journey through a book from every country. Following an impulse to read more internationally, journalist Ann Morgan undertook first to define the world and then to find a story from each of 196 nations. Tireless in her quest and assisted by generous, far-flung strangers, Morgan discovered not only a treasury of world literature but also the keys to unlock it. Whether considering the difficulties faced by writers in developing nations, movingly illustrated by Burundian Marie-Thérese Toyi's Weep Not, Refugee; tracing the use of local myths in the fantastically successful Samoan YA series Telesa; delving into questions of censorship and propaganda while sourcing a title from North Korea; or simply getting hold of The Corsair, the first Qatari novel to be translated into English, Morgan illuminates with wit, warmth, and insight how stories are written the world over and how place-geographical, historical, virtual-shapes the books we read and write --

Of noble family / Mary Robinette Kowal.
Of noble family /  Mary Robinette Kowal.
Jane and Vincent have finally gotten some much-needed rest after their adventures in Italy when Vincent receives word that his estranged father has passed away on one of his properties in the West Indies. His brother, who manages the estate, is overwhelmed, and no one else in his family can go. Grudgingly, out of filial duty the couple decide to go. The sea voyage is long and Jane spends enough time unable to perform glamour that towards the end of the trip she discovers that she is with child. They are overjoyed, but when they finally arrive at the estate to complete what they expect to be routine legal tasks, they realize that nearly everything they came expecting to find had been a lie. Also, the entire estate is in disarray, with horrifying conditions and tensions with the local slave population so high that they are close to revolt. Jane and Vincent's sense of peril is screaming out for them to flee, but Vincent cannot stand to leave an estate connected with his family in such a condition. They have survived many grand and terrifying adventures in their time, but this one will test their skills and wits more than any they have ever encountered before, this time with a new life hanging in the balance --~The magical adventure that might result if Jane Austen walked on the grimmer side of the Regency --


Vermilion : the adventures of Lou Merriwether, psychopomp / Molly Tanzer.
Gunslinging, chain smoking, Stetson-wearing Taoist psychopomp, Elouise Lou Merriwether might not be a normal 19-year-old, but she's too busy keeping San Francisco safe from ghosts, shades, and geung si to care much about that. It's an important job, though most folks consider it downright spooky. Some have even accused Lou of being more comfortable with the dead than the living, and, well... they're not wrong. When Lou hears that a bunch of Chinatown boys have gone missing somewhere deep in the Colorado Rockies she decides to saddle up and head into the wilderness to investigate. Lou fears her particular talents make her better suited to help placate their spirits than ensure they get home alive, but it's the right thing to do, and she's the only one willing to do it. On the road to a mysterious sanatorium known as Fountain of Youth, Lou will encounter bears, desperate men, a very undead villain, and even stranger challenges. Lou will need every one of her talents and a whole lot of luck to make it home alive....--Page [4] of cover.

Exploring his past with insight and humor, his present with humility, and his future with hope, Connor reveals his private struggles while providing heartfelt words of wisdom for young adults. His words will resonate with anyone coming of age in the digital era, but at the core is a timeless message for people of all ages: don't be afraid to be yourself and to go after what you truly want.--From publisher description.


Speak now : marriage equality on trial : the story of Hollingsworth v. Perry / Kenji Yoshino.
Speak now : marriage equality on trial : the story of Hollingsworth v. Perry / Kenji Yoshino.
A renowned legal scholar tells the definitive story of Hollingsworth v. Perry, the trial that will stand as the most potent argument for marriage equality. In 2008, California voters passed Proposition 8, rescinding the right of same-sex couples to marry in the state. Advocates for marriage equality were outraged. Still, major gay-rights groups opposed a federal challenge to the law, warning that it would be dangerously premature. A loss could set the movement back for decades. A small group of activists, however, refused to wait. They turned to corporate lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies--best known for arguing opposite sides of Bush v. Gore--who filed a groundbreaking federal suit against the law. A distinguished constitutional law scholar, Kenji Yoshino was also a newly married gay man who at first felt ambivalent about the suit. Nonetheless, he recognized that Chief Judge Vaughn Walker's decision to hold a trial in the case was momentous. Boies and Olson rose to the occasion, deftly deploying arguments that LGBT advocates had honed through years of litigation and debate. Reading the 3,000-page transcript, Yoshino discovered a shining civil rights document--the most rigorous and compelling exploration he had seen of the nature of marriage, the political status of gays and lesbians, the ideal circumstances for raising children, and the inability of direct democracy to protect fundamental rights. After that tense twelve-day trial, Walker issued a resounding and historic ruling: California's exclusion of same-sex couples from civil marriage violated the U.S. Constitution. In June 2013, the United States Supreme Court denied the final appeal in Hollingsworth v. Perry, leaving same-sex couples in California free to marry. Drawing on interviews with lawyers and witnesses on both sides of the case, Yoshino takes us deep inside the trial. He brings the legal arguments to life, not only through his account of the case, but also by sharing his own story of finding love, marrying, and having children. Vivid, compassionate, and beautifully written, Speak Now is both a nuanced and authoritative account of a landmark trial, and a testament to how the clash of proofs in our judicial process can force debates to the ultimate level of clarity--

Power tools in the Sacred Grove / Josef Matulich.
After only a few weeks in Arcanum Ohio, Marc Sindri finds himself in love with Brenwyn the witch; hospitalized by Jeremiah Stone’s sex-conjured demon; and woefully behind in his construction deadlines to open the new renaissance faire by May first. Moving in with Brenwyn for protection from further supernatural attacks during his rehabilitation, Marc delegates the work on Arcanum Faire to his minions, Eleazar the ren faire libertine and Michael the overwrought artisan. The path to the faire’s opening day is not smooth, obstructed by invisible tentacle demons, undead skinless bunnies, interference from OSHA and even the Vatican, but Marc slowly recovers. With luck, he will soon be healthy enough to lift a chainsaw or survive sex. Through a vegan Thanksgiving, a tool-bedecked Christmas, and lovers’ spats with a woman that can throw lightning bolts, Marc makes his way mostly unscathed. If only his semi-erotic dream about hedgetrimmers and a sacred grove didn’t end up leaking into Brenwyn’s sleeping mind.


Bound by moonlight / Donna MacMeans.
A woman of extraordinary talents... Lusinda Havershaw turns invisible in moonlight—just her, not her clothes. She can’t help it or prevent the process; it just happens. The descendent of a rare race, her ancestors have been burned as witches, persecuted and tormented as the devil’s children. She must be careful to avoid detection. However, as her family has no other means of support, she reluctantly sheds her petticoats and corset during full moons to prowl the gas-lit streets of London, stark naked, as a thief for hire. A man with a dangerous mission... The only tools British spy and master safecracker James Locke needs are his hands and his brains. But when a hand tremor threatens his mission to secure a list of agents for the Crown, the accidental discovery of a lady thief with an extraordinary secret may just be his salvation. However, as James and Lusinda discover, there’s more than one kind of trouble to be found in the moonlight. The kind that begins with blackmail and ends with a kiss...


The personal trainer : a tale of pain, gain, greed & lust / David L. Herbert.


The voices at CERN / by Franklin Clermont.
The Large Hadron Collider sits deep below ground in Switzerland and France, accelerating protons to near light-speed and smashing them to learn the secrets of the universe. Shannon Fields, senior press relations officer, plays a key role at the CERN research facility in informing the world, in easily understood language, of the great discoveries the giant LHC makes. But there is a looming problem with a new discovery. Soon after the LHC goes to maximum power, an unexpected and inexplicable result occurs; a result that both pleases and baffles those who experience it. People begin to hear the voices of dead friends and relatives. Shannon, her brilliant physicist father, and a trusted security officer strive to unravel the mystery of The Voices at CERN before reputations are dashed and the integrity of CERN as a world-leading scientific facility is forever tarnished. Their discovery of the answer to the mystery of the voices focuses world attention on CERN. But the discovery also leads to an immediate threat from an intractable foe; a threat, which if carried out, would destroy the LHC and cause unequaled harm to every major nation in the world. Shannon and the others rush to stop their foe before the unthinkable happens.

The redemption of the King : Lebron James returns to Cleveland! / Vince McKee.
LeBron James is back in Cleveland's court, and the city is on fire as its chosen one has decided to come home. His highly publicized, and equally highly emotional, return to Cleveland reveals his penultimate goal: to bring a championship back to northeast Ohio where he grew up. Now, for the first time ever, the full story is told from the beginning as author Vince McKee covers James's entire journey in every detail both on and off the court - from the start of his career with the Cavaliers in Cleveland to his departure to Miami, his time with the Heat, and finally, the much debated and highly anticipated return of the King. Although pro basketball is an international juggernaut in terms of dollars, this story revolves more around hometown pride and character than money or celebrity. --
