Beauty and the Curse
Cursed by a jealous witch, wealthy recluse Anabel Charming is destined to grow uglier with each passing year. Only by having sex before her twenty-first birthday can this virgin’s spell be broken. Yet no man will agree to sleep with the humpbacked, pockmarked, one-leg-shorter-than-the-other “Freak of Park Avenue.”
When handsome Chase Singleton shows up on a quest to retrieve his grandmother’s long-lost talisman, which Anabel now possesses, Anabel is willing to give up the jewel…if Chase agrees to break her curse.
With two days left, before her chance at a normal life is lost forever, Anabel and Chase discover the reality of beauty, the power of sexual healing, and the meaning of love.Read More
Seeds of a Nation: Nebraska
From a land once inhabited by only Native American Indians, to this territory’s struggle for statehood, Nebraska describes the unique history of the thirty-seventh state to join the union.
“Each book in the Seeds of a Nation series presents the history of an area before it attained statehood. Most of the colorful photographs of sites and the other illustrations, including maps, paintings, and tinted engravings are well chosen to support the text. Those looking for pre-statehood history, though, will find these compact volumes useful.”
