Enjoy this sizzling-hot excerpt of Jonah’s return to Falcon Ridge, book six in The McLendon Family Saga by USA Today bestselling author D.L. Roan</p>
<p> “Where’s your foreman, or the other ranch hands for that matter?” Jonah asked as he bent down and picked up a handful of bolts beside his boot and tossed them onto the workbench. “Why aren’t they out here helping you?”<br />
Pryce furrowed his brows as he doubled his efforts, moving with deliberate purpose, cleaning the dirt from the trailer parts and reorganizing them on the table. “They’re gone,” he said. “Most of them anyway. We can’t pay them, and no one’s going to work for my father for free, except me apparently.”<br />
“What about when the calving starts? You got any help coming?” Pryce couldn’t possibly think he could do everything on his own.<br />
“Our calves aren’t due for another two months, but I’ve got a skeleton crew lined up if I need them.”<br />
“If you need them?” Jonah jerked the part out of Pryce’s hand and took him by the shoulders. “You can’t do this by yourself. Forget the storm. You could lose more than your stock.” One accident and he could lose his life!<br />
“I’ve already lost more than you could possibly imagine,” Pryce said through his gritted teeth.<br />
Jonah fisted his hands into the front of Pryce’s coat and backed him against the side of the horse trailer. All the months he’d spent telling himself he was wrong, that he didn’t want Pryce, that he couldn’t want him, were nothing but wasted time. This need inside him hadn’t gone away just because he did. Every ridiculous excuse he’d meticulously crafted evaporated in a single breath. There was no other truth but the one in front of him, and he was done running from it.<br />
“You didn’t lose me,” Jonah breathed, their faces so close his hat tipped back and fell to the ground behind him.<br />
Pryce’s hot breath coated Jonah’s lips with a teasing taste of him. “But you lost me,” he said and met Jonah’s gaze.<br />
“So it’s true.” Jonah’s angry words sliced through the cold air between them. “You’re marrying Chloe.” Familiar resentment rose to the surface and he didn’t bother to fight it. He pressed his hips against Pryce’s, feeling the hard lie Pryce was about to tell for what it was. Even if he was in love with the traitorous bitch, Pryce couldn’t deny the truth any more than he could. “Did you tell her about us?”<br />
Pryce licked his lips, his body tensing in response to the seductive contact he still so obviously craved, his gaze dropping to Jonah’s mouth. “There is no us,” he breathed. “It was only one kiss.”<br />
“Wrong.” Jonah descended on his mouth, prodding with his tongue until he pushed past Pryce’s lips to claim the boy-turned-man the way he’d craved since the last time their lips touched.<br />
Pryce pushed against his chest with a protesting grunt, but his token resistance subsided when their tongues clashed in a frantic duel. Jonah pressed his weight against him, trapping him against the trailer, countering each of Pryce’s desperate strokes with his own. The long denied need for his best friend’s taste drove him to reach deeper. He gripped Pryce’s face and tipped his head back, their teeth clicking together in their haste for more. Welcomed heat flooded Jonah’s veins as he thrust his tongue alongside Pryce’s as deep as he could reach before retreating and moving in for another drugging taste. Damn, he’d needed this.<br />
Pryce threaded his fingers through his hair and pulled him closer. The vibrant sting to his scalp raced to Jonah’s groin and a growl rumbled through his chest. He ground his cock against the ample bulge in Pryce’s jeans, extracting a mirroring desperate groan from him before Pryce twisted away, gasping for air.<br />
Reluctantly, Jonah backed off, but didn’t release him. He braced his forearm against the trailer beside Pryce’s head, their feverish breaths billowing around them in a cloud of desire and lust.<br />
With a firm grip on Pryce’s chin, he gazed down at him, nowhere near satisfied. “Now there’s two kisses,” Jonah panted. “And you can bet your ass there will be more.” He punctuated his point by trailing his lips along Pryce’s jawline, the seductive feel of his five-o’clock stubble making them both release a shuddering breath.<br />
Pryce shoved him away and Jonah let him go. He hadn’t taken more than a step when Pryce cursed. “Chloe?”<br />
Jonah glanced back at him, then over to the open barn door where Chloe stood frozen, her eyes wide with shock.<br />
“Chloe, it’s not what—dammit wait!” She bolted like a spooked colt and Pryce shot out of the barn after her. “Chloe!”</p>

What if you could literally see Christ and listen to Him answer some of your deepest spiritual questions: Who receives eternal life, and why? Are we still “us” after death? What happens in heaven? And is there an unseen dimension here on earth?

In In Jesus’ Arms: One Woman’s Trip to Heaven, author Mary E. Keenan shares here amazing journey being in the arms of Jesus Christ. Opening with the story of her life as an unworthy sinner who once rejected God’s forgiveness—but who found restoration through a relationship with Christ—she reveals her experience of being held and carried by Jesus as she and Christ walked together on the earth and ascended to heaven. There, Mary receives Christ’s lessons and is able to offer a glimpse into the inner workings of heaven, the mind of Christ, the preparations for the second coming, and the important messages God wants individuals and churches to heed today about the difference between faith and religious practice.

Whether you are a curious and skeptical unbeliever, a believer who avoids the church, or an active church member involved in the pastorate or other Christian organizations, In Jesus’ Arms will compel you to delve deeper into the scriptures and provide you with a joyous, hopeful account of a victorious Christ—where His lessons from the past are still current, where His plans are being carried out, and where heaven is still very much involved in our lives.

This is a small book of poetry. It was written while the author was close to death from Lupus. Why, then, does pain inspire, and inspiration produce fruits to uplift and comfort. God only knows. But there is knowing here and insights only the heart knows through suffering. If you are suffering, or know someone who is, you may find these poems a salve and solution to why good people have to suffer. For, as the author once said, “The question is not why bad things happen to good people, but why good things happen to bad people; namely, why did Jesus came for me?”

Title: The Rise of Gideon
Author: Stan Matthews
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Historical Fiction
Format: Ebook

It is the early 1960s when journalism student Art James first meets Professor Gideon Pratt at a Midwestern university. When Art secures a reporter job after graduation, Gideon summons him, reveals that the university is harboring a Communist cell, and asks Art to write a story about it. Art, driven by his desire to earn accolades, writes the article. But when Gideon’s name is slashed from the story, Art angrily resigns.

Years later, Art lands a job with the New York Dispatch, with help from Gideon who is busy defending an educational foundation from attacks by a little known organization, the Cotterites. After Art reconnects with Gideon and his beautiful colleague/ love interest, Jo Davis, he discovers that feared anti-Communist Harry Cotter once wrote a thesis in praise of Communism—a fact that his former professor Silenus Stoddard eventually verifies. Many stories later that include an interview with Cotter himself, Art learns that Cotter is planning a rally in Madison Square Garden. While Art falls for Jo, an infuriated Gideon who blames Silenus for an embarrassing failure prepares to reveal his true self.

The Rise of Gideon shares the tale of a public relations guru and an ambitious New York reporter as they work together to expose a vicious society of extremists.
