The Easiest Meditation Ever: A Simple Form Of Meditation That Anyone Can Do

by Drew Michaels

Discover how simple and easy meditation can really be.

There’s no doubt about it. Learning to meditate effectively is a practice that takes even the most serious students years of dedicated effort to accomplish.

The problem they face is that they struggle to empty their minds of all thoughts, experience difficulty focusing, and as a result, fail to achieve a higher level of being. The most common cause of this problem stems from a lack of concentration, along with little guidance on how to handle it. But recent developments have revealed a style of meditation that completely circumvents this dilemma.

A flawless method for overcoming the most common frustrations experienced with meditation is now available.

The practice of meditation is actually a lot more straightforward than you have been led to believe.

Most don’t realize that meditation actually has a level of ease and simplicity built right into it. And by putting attention on the most productive aspects of the meditation process, even a relative newcomer will quickly find success and improve their focus. All one needs to do is apply a simple shift in their approach and discover the best way to take advantage of this less complicated method. In answer to this, author Drew Michaels takes readers on a clear path to meditating easily and effectively — one designed to cut straight through obstacles that most meditation students face.

The Wrong Hostage

by Elizabeth Lowell

The Wrong Hostage

Orphaned at thirteen, Grace Silva clawed her way out of poverty and violence to become one of the most respected judges on the federal bench. Grace believes in the rule of law — lives it, breathes it. She has always been buttoned up and buttoned down.

Except once.

Joe Faroe has learned that laws are made by politicians, and politicians are all too human. He believes in the innocents, the ones getting ground up by governments that are too polarized or too corrupt to protect their own citizens. He’s been through the political meat grinder himself. It cost him his career, his freedom, and the woman who still haunts him. Since then Faroe has worked outside the rules and politics of government as a kidnap specialist for St. Kilda Consulting, a Manhattan-based global business that concentrates on the shadow world where governments can’t go. He is good at his work — intelligent, confident, ruthless.

Until a friend dies trying to kill him.

Now Faroe is out of the business. Retired. He’s through trying to save a world that doesn’t want to be saved.

Then Grace comes to him, past and present collide, and Faroe finds himself sucked back into the shadows, tracking a violent killer who holds the life of Grace’s son in his bloody hands.

A Slight Change Of Plan

by Dee Ernst

Kate Everett is about to begin her “second act.” She’s been a widow for eight years and thinks it might be time to start looking for someone to share her life with again. She quits her high-pressure job for something that will allow her more leisure time. She gets rid of the huge family home and moves into a fabulous condo that’s smaller and easier to manage.

But her real life never gets the memo. First, her son moves back in with her—along with his girlfriend. Her dream job falls through, leaving her unemployed. Her mother, whom she hadn’t spoken to in years, can no longer live alone and has to move into her basement. And her only daughter is planning the smallest and simplest wedding in the history of all weddings, much to Kate’s dismay.

Kate thinks that she and Jake, her former college love who has reemerged on an online dating site, of all places, can build something real, and that maybe her happy ending is in front of her at last. But the arrival of Edward, her daughter’s future father-in-law, presents Kate with an unexpected choice.

by Marta Tandori

When seven-year-old Ethan du Maurier, only son and heir of New York City real estate tycoon, Alexander du Maurier, disappears during school recess, the FBI quickly determines that his disappearance was an abduction. Within hours of a special news bulletin airing nationwide, the FBI’s hotline is inundated with anonymous tips relating to sightings of a little boy matching Ethan’s description outside a historic Savannah building, now a newly-renovated eatery. The FBI quickly assembles a task force and searches the premises but instead of finding little Ethan, they stumble upon the century-old remains of what appears to be a murdered man hidden in a pirate’s tunnel under the historic building.

With her restaurant on temporary lockdown pending the FBI’s forensic investigation, owner Annie Eastwood researches the history of the building she inherited, hoping it will shed some light on the identity of the murdered man, but what she uncovers are bits and pieces of a horrible scandal that nearly destroyed the du Maurier family over a century ago. With hopes for Ethan’s safe return dwindling by the hour, Annie finds an unlikely lead in an old classified ad from a Boston newspaper which connects the events of the past to the present-day abduction of Ethan du Maurier—and to the identity of his abductor. Determined to rescue little Ethan before time runs out, Annie quickly realizes that the boy’s abductor will stop at nothing—even murder—in order to exact his revenge.

A Little Combustible Chemistry: Prequel To Love, Chocolate, And Beer

by Violet Duke

Man, oh man, was he in trouble…

If the girl-next-door-had an unpredictable, feisty twin sister, this woman would be her. Though she’d doused it quickly, a sizzling, ultra-feminine awareness had flared in her eyes in that brief moment they’d met his, along with a sweet blush she’d fought with adorably stubborn defiance. Damn, she was cute. And intriguing. With that quiet, kitten gaze of hers still mulishly refusing to look his way again, she was drawing him in, hook, line, and sinker.

Holy Hefeweizen…

It was bad enough that the faint scent of one of her dark ales was lingering on his lips in that sexier-than-sin sort of way, but candying it atop steamy eyes and a gentlemanly sweet center to boot was just plain unfair. He was cowboy-in-the-city sexy with a laughing smile and all sorts of promised temptations radiating from him. And he always smelled like chocolate. With his scorching hot gaze, he was completely lethal to everything that kept her tame.

The night Luke and Dani met, they really should have gotten each other’s last names. More importantly? Each other’s occupations.

See how the chocolate vs. beer throwdown between chocolatier Luke Bradford and beer brewing beauty Dani Dobson gets started.
