Sabotage!!! Agrav. It was the century's most important advance in space travel...and an experiment so revolutionary that only the men who huddled beneath the surface of Jupiter Nine were permitted to know its full meaning.

Who or what the enemy was, Lucky Starr didn't know. but one thing was certain.

Stories that will break your funny bone and keep you in stitches...and you won't have to go to the ER! Humor/satire about the dumb things that guys will sometimes do...you know, those decisions that usually start with a trip to the liquor store and end with a trip to the ER.
Or to the police station. And almost always to the doghouse.
These are "The fish was THIS BIG" stories that are sorta-kinda mostly true. You know those videos where men do things like balance a ladder on a stair railing, use a handcart in place of a spare tire, or light firecrackers and launch them at each others' crotches? Well, this is a compilation of stories such as those where some man somewhere has a moment of sheer stupidity and asks his friends to hold his beer while he tries to kill himself. So if you like to hear those "chill 'round the fire pit, guzzlin' six packs and spittin' tobacco at the flames" kind of stories, this book is for you. DISCLAIMER--Now, because we're dealing with good ol' boys who are common sense challenged and grew up watching Evel Knievel performing jaw-dropping gravity-defying stunts, I have to make the standard cover-our-butts-so-we-don't-get-sued statement: MEN--If you really think you should try some of the stunts in this book, you probably ought to consider finding a sensible woman to marry. Seriously. Or call yo mama before you hand over that beer, dude. WOMEN--If you are a sensible gal who is considering getting into a relationship with a man who has ever said, "Here, hold my beer" just before he tried any similar stunts to those in this book, you may want to call your mama and get some good advice. Or maybe just go out with the girls for a glass or three of wine and meet someone inclined to life and limb endangerment. Otherwise, count on knowing 911 operators on a first-name basis and spending a lifetime sipping burned coffee out of cardboard cups, while squirming on hard plastic chairs next to sneezing snot-nosed kids and watching ridiculous talk shows in the ER waiting room. You. Have. Been. Warned.

Sheltered by the Millionaire - Catherine Mann A life-and-death rescue leads to love for a single mum in USA TODAY bestselling author Catherine Mann’s Texas Cattleman’s Club story.
Texas tycoon Whit Daltry has always been a thorn in Megan Maguire’s side, especially when he tries to put the kibosh on her animal shelter. But when he saves her daughter during the worst tornado in recent memory, Megan sees beneath his prickly exterior to the hero underneath. Soon, the storm’s recovery makes bedfellows of these opposites. Until Megan’s old reflexes kick in—should she brace for betrayal or say yes to Whit once and for all? A Conflict of Interest - Barbara Dunlop She tried to stay away from him… More than once, White House PR specialist Cara Crenshaw has considered that reporter Max Gray might want her only because he can’t have her. Given their work, a relationship is dicey—and impossible now that the president has taken office. For Max, their relationship may be a lark, a fling—maybe she’s just another woman in the long line that forms a part of his bachelor lifestyle. But for her, what they have is different. She’s all but given him her heart. And now she is having his baby.
