My Hero, My Dad, The Nurse is a colorful children's book about a little boy who ponders different career choices, but decides that he wants to follow his dad's example, and become a nurse. In this book, adults as well as children are introduced to the idea that nursing is a rewarding career that is not gender specific. Nursing is a career choice full of opportunities for men and women. My Hero, My Dad The Nurse is based on the expertise and research of its author, Dr. Maggie Thurmond Dorsey, RN. The story journeys into the imagination of an African American little boy as he decides on a career day presentation for his class. The vivid illustrations in this book are provided by Mr. Lorenzo Williams, an accomplished artist and art teacher. The illustrations capture the range of the little boy's animations from his sadness as he deals with his classmates' jeering: "You can't be a nurse, you're a boy" to his enthusiasm and pride when he presents to his class, "My Hero, My Dad The Nurse."

Don't tell her she needs to find closure. Don't ask her to forgive and forget. When Kim was just 22, her older brother, Ron Goldman, was brutally killed by O.J. Simpson.

Dangerously handsome Dr. Dane Hendricks certainly isn't nurse Rikki Johansen's usual type. For one thing, she thinks he's arrogant and overbearing, and for another, he assumed she was scatterbrained and incapable of making good decisions. So why is he so adamant about taking her on a date? Rikki soon discovers that Dr. Dane is actually a kind and sensitive dad, and, like her, he's one of life's survivors. A foster mother herself, Rikki knows she can bring Dane's adorable twin girls—and their gorgeous dad—the happiness they deserve.

** Veterans Day Sale - $0.99 This Week Only ** From the bestselling author of the Kavanagh Legends MMA series, Sarah Robinson's Not A Hero is an emotional standalone military romance where love battles trauma, and there can only be one victor. Former Marine, Miles Kydd, is trying to readjust to civilian life after ending his career and returning to his small home town when he learned his father was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Once the town hero and star quarterback, Miles no longer feels like the man he was, or who he's expected to be--possibly because his demons have followed him home from Afghanistan. Meeting Zoe Brooke, his father's live-in nurse, gives Miles the slightest glimmer of hope that he can still find happiness despite the dark secrets he holds inside. The chemistry between them is undeniable, and together they are explosive--in more ways than one. A helper at her core, Zoe is more than willing to care for Miles's heart, but not at the expense of her own, and she's not afraid to tell him that. She knows what having a painful past is like, and she wants to help him with his, if he'll let her. Things get complicated fast when Miles realizes burying his secrets isn't actually the same as healing from them and if he wants the girl, he's going to have to tell her the truth--the one thing he can't do. This book is suggested for 18+ years of age, contains graphic content, sensitive subject matters, and sexually explicit material.

My Living Will is the story of former major league pitcher John Trautwein, and the unbelievable tragedy which befell him and his family when his fifteen-year-old son, Will, took his own life. There had been no warnings, no obvious signs of anxiety, depression, or unhappiness; nothing. A family and a community were left stunned as they pondered how a young man like Will Trautwein, a healthy, happy, popular, athletic, and musical teenager, who came from such a loving home, could lose the will to live. “John Trautwein writes straight from the heart. And his words will save lives. The story Trautwein shares in these pages––a remarkable journey of passion and purpose––will literally save lives.” • Jeffrey Marx, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Season of Life “John Trautwein’s story inspires hope. It empowers people, and it gives its readers the ‘hope for life.’ The triumph that this story imparts arouses the goodness in everyone as it drives people toward action.” • Joe Girardi, Manager, The New York Yankees “In my twenty-two years of broadcasting, I have told many stories of triumph over tragedy, but the story of Will Trautwein and his family has stayed with me. The loss of such a vibrant young man and the strength of his family to use their heartache to help has had an impact on how I parent my daughter, and how I report stories of teenage depression and suicide. This is a must-read if you have a teenager in your life.” • Stephany Fisher, Anchor, CBS News, Atlanta “Ever wonder if a young person in your own home might be at risk? Read this book. In “My Living Will,” John Trautwein takes the emotions of loss and turns them into a message of awareness and hope. A must read for parents and teenagers alike!” • Dan Shaughnessy, The Boston Globe
