From Maid to Duchess

"From Maid to Duchess" by Regina James

Lady Evelyn’s life changed when her mother died and her step-mother Lady Cecilia entered her life. Still everything became worse when her father died leaving them in poverty. Her wicked step-mother decided to use Evelyn as a servant in their household. Evelyn was resigned to her fate and was just happy that she at least had her step-sister Lady Jane in her life. Until she met the Duke of Langley and spoke to him in the shadows. The Duke of Langley, Julien had no desire to remarry after his first wife jumped to her death from the balcony of their home. However, after losing the third governess for his children, his mother convinced him that finding himself a mother for his twins would be better…More permanent. Set out to find such a woman to act in the sole capacity of mother and nothing more, Julien found the perfect woman. Only she was a servant, way beneath him for marriage. And there was another huge problem— he had feelings for her. He did not want feelings in the equation. Against the machinations of one wicked step-mother and an unfeeling mother; with expectations of marriage without love, would this maid be the next Duchess of Langley?

Until then I treat each day as if books are EpiPens and every student has a shellfish allergy with a mouth full of shrimp." Most of the students in Daphne Russell's reading class have never read an entire book, and they can’t relate to Harry Potter and his magic wand. Abel is twenty-eight days behind everyone else and he needs enough books inside him to get his lungs to work again, mend his shattered heart, and kick the shit out of apathy.

The World’s Answers

"The World's Answers" by Stuart Steinfeld

My name is Stuart Steinfeld. I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. When I was about 19, it all came to me like a flash. From that day forward, I began to dream. My goal was to be self-employed, so I could turn my dream into reality.  I tried everything, with one failure after another. But I never gave up. When I finally found out what worked, I would put more hours into the projects than exists in a day. My passion grew, and my business grew. Making money became a thirst, and I was always thirsty. Before too long, I ended up buying my first Porsche.
