But after cautious Molly succumbed to a single night of passion, both she and Chase crashed headlong into a life-changing surprise: she's pregnant! Can Chase convince his favorite nurse that he's a risk well worth taking--for her and their baby? This reporter bets that Chase will soon be carrying his new bride over the finish line!

Now, with Jack's help, they must recover their spaceship or risk the destruction of their planet ... and ours.
From an award-winning writer comes the first linked history of African Americans and Latinos in Major League Baseball.
A is for Automobiles, machines on wheels. B is for Belts turning, fuel burning, the buzz and bark of engines. C is for Curves and crowds and cars, of course --A century of racecars, from bare beginnings to present-day marvels, from stock cars to Formula 1, from Ford to Ferrari, caught in crackling action, in fan-friendly pictures, and in words that bounce and jounce for the fun of it.
Most people assume that racism grows from a perception of human difference: the fact of race gives rise to the practice of racism. Sociologist Karen E. Fields and historian Barbara J. Fields argue otherwise: the practice of racism produces the illusion of race, through what they call "racecraft." And this phenomenon is intimately entwined with other forms of inequality in American life. So pervasive are the devices of racecraft in American history, economic doctrine, politics, and everyday thinking that the presence of racecraft itself goes unnoticed.That the promised post-racial age has not dawned, the authors argue, reflects the failure of Americans to develop a legitimate language for thinking about and discussing inequality. That failure should worry everyone who cares about democratic institutions.

Children's version about naturalist Rachel Carson.
Her lie came back to haunt her... Ten years ago Rachel and Stephen had had an affair-and the result was little Jamie. For reasons of her own, Rachel had told Stephen that Jamie was someone else's child. But when Rachel finally admitted Stephen was the father, he wouldn't believe her. He was convinced Rachel was a conniving, scheming woman who would go to any lengths to get what she wanted-and she appeared to want Stephen. Perhaps it wasn't a case of what Rachel wanted at all, but what Jamie needed-a dad! Jennifer Taylor "is sure to touch each and every heart in a unique but fierce way." -Affaire de Coeur
