Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennett. Ozzie and Harriet. Jay-Z and Beyonce. Great couples often find togetherness by embracing their individual differences. In this modern-day fable, Edward Monkton pens an irresistible love story about a fiercely funny but distant Dinosaur who falls in love with a forgetful but free-spirited (and shopping-savvy) Lovely Other Dinosaur. * Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae * This ode to love pairs Monkton's signature illustrations with simple yet profound prose.

When a woman falls in love with a married man, a struggle begins. When that woman presides over a regional university and holds high ethical standards, a major conflict looms. Katherine Embright, chancellor of North Carolina’s Wickfield University, thinks she can manage her head-versus-heart dilemma until she is diagnosed with colon cancer. Reluctantly, she turns to campus security officer Paul Stafford, the man who secretly stirs her feelings. This is 1990, an era when women executives cannot afford to appear weak. And Katherine needs Paul’s expertise to help conceal her advancing illness from the public eye. Prez, A Story of Love takes the reader behind the ivy walls of academia into the real-life drama of the human heart. Along the way, Katherine runs out of gas on a mountain interstate, tangles with her aging Board of Trustees chairman, and rides through the winds of Hurricane Hugo. Adding to her tension is the guilt she harbors toward the long-ago deaths of her father and young brother. With a keen eye for both imagery and first-person narration, Margaret Garrison develops themes that embrace romantic passion, devotion for family, and spiritual grace. In the end, this debut novel will leave the reader feeling emotionally empowered and enriched.

“What are my qualifications to write this book? None really. So why should you read it? Here's why: I'm a little fat. If a thin guy were to write about a love of food and eating I'd highly recommend that you do not read his book.” Bacon. McDonalds. Cinnabon. Hot Pockets. Kale. Stand-up comedian and author Jim Gaffigan has made his career rhapsodizing over the most treasured dishes of the American diet (“choking on bacon is like getting murdered by your lover”) and decrying the worst offenders (“kale is the early morning of foods”). Fans flocked to his New York Times bestselling bookDad is Fat to hear him riff on fatherhood but now, in his second book, he will give them what they really crave—hundreds of pages of his thoughts on all things culinary(ish). Insights such as: why he believes coconut water was invented to get people to stop drinking coconut water, why pretzel bread is #3 on his most important inventions of humankind (behind the wheel and the computer), and the answer to the age-old question “which animal is more delicious: the pig, the cow, or the bacon cheeseburger?”

Set in the turbulent period of Guam history, between the Spanish-American War and World War II, the lives and loves of three Chamorro women are told in vivid detail. A navy seaman leaves young Amanda de Leon broken hearted. For Sylvia de Leon Camacho, happiness ends too soon. Life teaches the level-headed Vivian Camacho that falling for an American serviceman is futile, like reaching for the moon. Cultural and racial prejudices magnify the distance. Trying to build a life with one is as impossible as building a mansion on the moon. Then a navy civil engineer comes into Vivian’s life. Kirkus Review: The extensive cultural descriptions specific to Guam and its people add a depth and singularity…preventing this wartime romance from coming across as trite. While Gault tackles weighty political issues…she also manages to tell a story that is simultaneously wistful and uplifting. Blueink Review: …An engaging romance with wonderfully written and fully realized characters...The author’s strong voice is never more evident than when she describes the...changes from a peaceful community and military outpost to an island ravaged by World War II…both stories are dramatic, heart-wrenching but eventually uplifting. Foreword Review: …The emotional power of the intricate tale carries the story…A Mansion on the Moon does not gloss over racial bigotry and prejudices, adding a realistic layer to this hopeful tale…Despite its tragic opening, the novel soars to dramatic heights as it illustrates that love can indeed conquer all…
