The Most Complete Book for Guys on How to Succeed on a First Date.
When going out on a first date, there’s only one question guys ask ever really themselves: “Will she like me?”
In The Secret to a Successful First Date, author Drew Michaels addresses this by making the question a complete non-issue, offering a set of unique principles to create instant attraction and set the reader apart from 99% of the other guys out there — regardless of any limitations they think they have.
The main challenge most men face when they’re on a first date is they often look at the situation in the complete opposite way that they should be. They should be focusing only on things they can control (many of which can be used to create a spark between them and their date that will literally pull the woman in like a magnet). Instead, they usually find themselves completely off-balance, fumbling through the evening and unsure of themselves or whether the girl is into them, never really knowing how to handle whatever issues come up.
In answer to this, Michaels communicates key lessons that cut straight through these common obstacles. Part exploration of female psychology and part how-to instruction, the book offers wisdom on building attraction and making an impression that will be remembered long after the evening has ended.

In May 2000, Joel Smith is a cocky, adventurous young man who sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior, days from graduation, enters an abandoned Montana mine, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity. He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can’t use, money he can’t spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of swing dancing and a peacetime draft, Joel begins a new life as the nation drifts toward war. With the help of his 21-year-old trailblazing grandmother and her friends, he finds his place in a world he knew only from movies and books. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, Joel must decide whether to leave his new love in the past or choose a course that will alter their lives forever.
Personal transformation brings out a person’s best—except when it doesn’t. Consider two children, raised by abusive parents. You might end up with a saint. You might end up with a killer…or one of each.
The seeds of an apocalyptic race—to save mankind or to destroy it—were sown in the childhood years of two scientists. Young Eva Rozen witnessed her sister’s brutal murder, and barely escaped with her life. She found refuge from madness in the orderly world of science. Twenty-five years later, this master of nanotechnology is the world’s wealthiest woman… and the most dangerous.
Marta Cruz also endured a troubled childhood. Her mother’s death and her father’s incarceration left her an orphan, and a crippling disease left her in pain. Marta’s refuge? A tropical rain forest where she discovers plants with miraculous healing properties under the tutelage of her shamanistic grandmother.
The two girls meet in high school and form an uneasy friendship that lasts through college. Eva wants power, profit, and Marta’s husband. She offers to fund Marta’s public health dreams in exchange for the ailing physician’s knowledge of plant-based medicines. Together, they build the world’s largest nanotech manufacturer.
When unstable Eva has a psychotic break, and attacks the people who rely on her for survival, only Marta can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But Marta is a healer, not a fighter, and must rely on her husband and teenaged son, a boy who faces a life-or-death challenge well beyond his years.

She tracks him to a cattle ranch in Montana.

Although he enjoys spending time with his grown daughter and the two men he rescued when they were living on the streets, he longs to meet a woman he can love. Living in the Montana territory where men greatly outnumber women makes finding a new wife difficult. Weary of working cattle, he is ready to make some changes in his life.
Grace falls ill on her journey, but she manages to make it to the Twin Springs ranch where her brother is supposed to be living. Adam takes her in, concerned for her health and the reason she’s searching for one of his adopted sons. Their chemistry is immediate and intense, but can Grace heal from her past of pain and fear? When her secrets are finally revealed, can Adam forgive her deceptions and learn to love again?
After modern-day pirates murder his best friend, an American ex-Marine captains a fighting ship to wreak revenge.
Ryan Kelley is a former Marine who’s drifted into knocking around Southeast Asia as a merchant seaman. His best friend is murdered by King Pirate, leader of the biggest criminal organization currently stalking the Malacca Strait.
Kelley swears revenge. He hunts down one of King Pirate’s lieutenants, but swiftly realizes he’ll never get far without help. Kelley goes to Cuchulain, the bizarre leader of the IPC, a law enforcement agency dedicated to fighting piracy. Kelley almost immediately begins an affair with Cuchulain’s lead investigator, the beautiful Russian ex-pat, Anastasia.
But Kelley can’t tolerate working in an office and taking orders. He quits to fight King Pirate alone. Cuchulain makes Kelley an interesting offer: if Kelley agrees to become a modern-day privateer – a pirate of pirates – Cuchulain will fund the expedition. Though he has his suspicions, Kelley agrees.
Kelley buys a ship, attracts a crew of rogues and arms them with black market weapons. He takes King Pirate by surprise, raiding pirate ships on the high seas. The mission is almost too successful; King Pirate’s lieutenants quickly come after Kelley and his men.
Kelley digs into King Pirate’s organization, and realizes that the mysterious criminal’s plans are vastly farther-reaching than just hijacking ships, and his influence in government is far deeper than Kelley imagined. Reaching even into the halls of the IPC…
AVERY PIKE is a commodity. No, more than a commodity. Her existence is guarded at all costs.

…Which means digging deeper.
When Avery enlists the help of her friends to uncover the truth, she learns that while some secrets are better left concealed, humankind was never meant to live in a cage. And when you can control the most sought after resource, you can learn to control anything…including the fate of your world.
