Description : Just because Kate 'Middleton' McGrath, wants a man to call 'daddy' in bed doesn't mean— Oh, you stopped reading. Cool. Kate gets it. Kinks aren't for everyone. Hell, they're probably not for Mr Henderson, her grumpaholic boss. She really shouldn't have crush on him, but the man is just so goddamn stern. Sure, a lot of that comes down to 'being her boss,' but still, it feels like there might be something there. Tyler Henderson is a golden boy who's lost his shine. He's old, his dream career is over, his fiancée's left him. Now all the former firefighter can do is try and bury his troubles in paperwork and hard liquor. He says 'try' because he can't get Middleton out of his head long enough to wallow properly. He's not going anywhere near the girl. HR issues aside, he's done with sweetness and things don't come sweeter than a cupcake-baking engineer who knits her own hats. A case of mistaken identity causes Kate and Ty's attraction to give way to blistering sex. They have more in common—and more to lose—than either of them realized. When it comes to unreasonable attraction you can rarely change your mind but can you act your age?

Description : Radical Renovation: Living the Cross-Shaped Life A Lenten Study for Adults James A. Harnish Radical Renovation is a powerful image of what can happen in our lives during the season of Lent. Just as a house can be rebuilt after it has fallen into disrepair or devastation, author James A. Harnish says, so God can enter in to our brokenness and completely rebuild our lives, so that we can become the kind of people in whom the living Christ can take up residence, and through whom the loving purpose of God can become a tangible reality in this world. As the great cathedrals were built in the shape of a cross, the author tells us, the traditional Lenten disciplines invite us to allow the Spirit of God to reshape the way we think, act, and live into the likeness of Jesus on his way to the cross. This seven-session study, appropriate for both group and individual use, will provide one lesson for each week in Lent. Each lesson includes a Scripture reference, a brief reflection, questions for discussion or reflection, a brief prayer, and a focus for the coming week. JAMES A. HARNISH is senior pastor of Hyde Park United Methodist Church in Tampa, Florida. He is the author of Journey to the Center of the Faith: An Explorer’s Guide to Christian Living; Passion, Power & Praise: A Model for Men’s Spirituality from the Life of David; and You Only Have to Die: Leading Your Congregation to New Life, and he served as a contributor to both 365 Meditations for Young Adults and 365 Meditations for Men.
