From the back cover: With comprehensive detail and flowing prose, EleanorGustafson crafts the retelling of King David s life from his teenaged anointing to his death as seen throughthe eyes of Asaph, a Levite historian. Fictional in scope, yet with amazing scriptural accuracy,The Stones provides a revealing, behind-the-scenes glimpseinto biblical history with all the twists, turns, thrills, andromance of the world s great drama. You will be there as: A young teen collects stones to take on a giant. A prideful rebel takes count of his fighting men. A fallible leader succumbs to lust, temptation,and deceit. A poet and musician grows closer to God throughprayer and worship. A man after God s heart discovers the unfailing loveand forgiveness of his Creator.

Title: An Offer You Can't Refuse
Author: Jill Mansell

I received this book from Sourcebook - it is due out in March.

From amazon: Seventeen-year-old Lola has no intention of accepting when her boyfriend's snobbish mother offers her a huge bribe to break up with him. Then Lola discovers a secret that makes her think again, and the only way she can help one of the people she loves most in the world is to take the money and break Dougie's heart.
Ten years later, when Lola meets Dougie again, her feelings for him are as strong as ever. She'll do almost anything to get him back, but she can never tell him the truth. Can she overcome his bitterness and win his heart? She's attractive, persuasive, and endlessly optimistic, but even Lola's got her work cut out for her this time.



Title: Darkness Unknown
Author: Alexis Morgan




I won an autographed copy of this one from Fresh Fiction.

From the back cover: Alexis Morgan's seductive Paladin series continues with a red-hot romance between a powerful warrior sworn to secrecy and the irresistible woman who makes him lose control....
Gwen Mosely's life changes forever when she stumbles across a handsome stranger, bleeding and left for dead in the woods behind her farm. But the real shock is how his wounds heal overnight -- a trait he shares with Gwen's teenaged half-brother Chase.
Jarvis Donahue can't keep his eyes -- or his hands -- off the sexy redhead who rescued him. Gwen's warm smile and lust-filled eyes are impossible to resist...but Jarvis immediately recognizes Chase as a fellow Paladin, a warrior born to defend mankind in the relentless battle against the Others. Although Gwen may hate Jarvis for it, he is dutybound to introduce Chase to the Paladins' dangerous lifestyle.
As the barrier between the two worlds weakens, the threat grows perilously close to Gwen's farm. Jarvis is determined to protect his lover -- but if he reveals his identity, he not only betrays his people's secret, he risks losing her forever....
