Content to hide behind her camera, Maddy Adams often feels more comfortable observing life rather than actively participating in it. For the past five years she's focused only on her studies and building her photography career. The summer after her college graduation, Maddy returns to Lake of the Pines for her sister Liv's wedding. While she's happy her sister has found love again, Maddy wonders if she'll ever find love herself. Her college roomie keeps pressuring her to go out with her older brother, who happens to be vacationing at the same lake. Maddy doesn't want to go on another blind date, but after blowing it with the gorgeous man she met on the beach she doesn't have anything to lose. Or does she? Mason Ellis finds himself on a beautiful house boat docked at Lake of the Pines after finally taking his best friend's long-standing invitation to visit. He has two long weeks away from his fast-paced software development business to relax and unplug if he can. Six months ago the woman he'd lived with for two years left him for someone else. Tired of meaningless hookups, Mason wants more, but is afraid of getting burned again. When he spies a woman on the beach taking his photo, he's intrigued. However, when he finally meets the mystery photographer, she brushes him off. Meanwhile, his little sister keeps pestering him to go on a blind date with her old college roommate. Maybe a blind date is just what he needs to get back into the dating scene. It's not like it will lead to anything more. Or will it?

Curiously practical—this no-nonsense blend of literary biography and self-help unravels how interesting life can be if only you could resist the impulse to rush through the mundane rituals of modern life. Every morning, Marcel Proust sipped his two cups of strong coffee with milk, ate a croissant from one boulangerie, dunking it in his coffee as he slowly read the day’s paper with great care—poring over each headline and section. Only Alain de Botton could have pulled so many useful insights from the oeuvre of one the world’s greatest literary masters. Fascinating and vital, How to Take Your Time will urge you to find the wisdom in defying “the self-satisfaction felt by ‘busy’ men—however idiotic their business—at ‘not having time’ to do what you are doing.” A Vintage Shorts Wellness selection. An ebook short.

Five clans, five quests on a collision course with a single destiny. Not a destiny of their choosing, but one planned by the Goddess Gaia, intent on using humans to change the fates of her beloved but dying races. Dragons, centaurs, griffons, the Pict and a score of smaller, seeming mythological and nearly extinct creatures have been brought together in the sanctuary of Glasgothia, not only for their protection but to await the timing of Gaia's intervention in their own destiny. Three unlikely cohorts, Lord Charles Gayeland, cousin to the King of Britannia, Uther Pendragon, and on a quest to bring back the head of a golden dragon for his King; Thamas Kerringtoune, chieftain to the Kerr, his clan, vassals to the Britannians, offers his services to Gayeland, hoping to achieve landed status for himself and his clan; Brigid, Queen of Ire, driven by a need to see her half sister, Death's Whore, truly dead and unable to claim the crown of Ire. Two unlikely lovers, tied to a past they can't forget, both locked into a present that neither would have chosen. Maeve, the female warrior who rose to the rank of general to the armies of Ire. Thought to be dead at her father's hand, she has been driven from Ire as an outcast. Running for her survival, she is brought by the Goddess's oracle to Glasgothia. Wolfgar, chieftain by default and revenge to the Norse. Warned by another oracle of the Goddess that the world as he knows it is changing, he accepts the quest she offers and sets out to take his destiny and that of his people, into his own hands. Five oracles, charged by the Goddess to serve their separate clans and peoples, but given a task by Gaia, that taxes their humanity to its limits. The time of the matriarchy has all but passed. The patriarchal order is beginning to stretch it muscles. Just how does Gaia plan to resolve the strange mix of creatures and humans she has brought together on the cusp of changing times?
