"A Being(s) in Love Story" Arthur MacArthur needs a job, and not just for the money. Before he dropped out of school to support his younger sister, he loved being a research assistant at the university. But working for a dragon, one of the rarest and least understood magical beings, has unforeseen complications. While Arthur may be the only applicant who isn't afraid of Philbert Jones in his dragon form, the instant attraction he feels for his new employer is beyond disconcerting. Bertie is a brilliant historian, but he can't find his own notes without help-his house is a hoard of books and antiques, hence the need for an assistant. Setting the mess to rights is a dream come true for Arthur, who once aspired to be an archivist. But making sense of Bertie's interest in him is another matter. After all, dragons collect treasure, and Arthur is anything but extraordinary.

What’s the number one reason you don’t feel loved or able to give love unconditionally? What if you were given simple tools to overcome this? At times, most of us have felt dissatisfied in relationships due to the core fear of not feeling good enough. In Being Love, author and Life Coach Mark Petroff reveals keys to experiencing real and lasting love—love that overcomes fear, ego patterns, and changing life circumstances. As a result of searching, praying, studying, and coaching all kinds of relationships over many years, he learned successful and universal principles to feel and radiate love. During his coaching sessions and workshops, and through his own relationships, it became clear that we attract what we are. When we connect with the Divinity within us and shift perceptions and behaviors that seem to limit love, we realize that love isn’t something we find; Love is what we become and share. This book asks powerful questions, gives original ideas to empower your choices, and includes practical exercises that enable you to access inner wisdom and make positive changes. Such ideas, questions, and answers have the potential to free and enhance your relationship with yourself, others, and the higher Power you deem sacred.

Finalist, 2012 Next Generation Indie Awards "Highly recommended" by The Midwest Book Review Welcome to Book Two of The Liberty Series, where love, friendship and family life arrive with a second chance in the most heartwarming circumstances. Petty thief Birdie Kaminsky has arrived in Liberty, Ohio to steal a treasure hidden since the Civil War. She's in possession of a charming clue passed down in her family for generations: Liberty safeguards the cherished heart. The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue's author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie's ancestor. If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can't help but wonder if she's found one--Liberty's feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn't know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up--as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it's possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine. The books of The Liberty Series work as stand-alone novels you may enjoy in any order. Look for the other books in the series: Second Chance Grill, The Impossible Wish, Four Wishes and The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge.
