The Florida Prairie, 1860, cattle country. War looms, but to the settlers living along a jungled, tropical creek, it all seems very far away. For Becky Hackensaw, there are much more pressing matters, such as providing an education for her six children, but where to find someone willing to brave an uninhabited wilderness overrun with wild animals, alligators, venomous snakes, and bloodthirsty mosquitoes?
"As a native Floridian whose roots are deeply embedded among the pre-civil war pioneers of Florida, I must give Tim Robinson credit where credit is due. As a boy, I sat and listened to my parents and older friends, family and acquaintances talk of Florida’s pioneer days, many of them having lived while Florida was still open range. Mr. Robinson has captured the heart and independence of the Florida pioneers and even today’s Florida cowboys in The Cow Hunters. Congratulations to Tim Robinson for writing a thoroughly enjoyable, and believable, Florida historic fiction novel. Anyone with interest in Florida history, cowboy history, antebellum history or just wanting an excellent entertaining story will do well to read A Tropical Frontier: The Cow Hunters." - Clabe.
Her dream is to open a music hall. Only one thing stands in her way—the man she loves. The final Wicked Wallflowers novel from USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell.
Leaving behind her life as a courtesan and madam, Clara Winters is moving far from the sinful life to which she was accustomed in the gaming hell the Devil’s Den. Her more reputable and fulfilling endeavor is a music hall for the masses. One night, when she sees a man injured on the streets of East London, she rushes to his aid and brings him home. It’s then that she discovers he’s Henry March, Earl of Waterson, and a member of Parliament. No good can come from playing nursemaid to a nobleman.
When Henry rouses to meet his savior in blonde curls, he is dazzled. This smart and loving spitfire challenges his every notion of the lower classes—and every moment together is a thrill. But after Henry returns to his well-ordered existence, he strikes a political compromise that has unintended consequences. Will his vision for London mean dashing the dreams of his lovely guardian angel?
Life is more fun when you’re a tiger like me!
A little boy—um, no, a tiger!—tells us all about what he gets up to on an ordinary day: how he wakes up in his tiger den, what he eats for breakfast at his feeding spot, and how little tigers feel when they are wide awake, hungry, thirsty, or in the mood for adventures. But at night, even the wildest of tigers is happy to curl up in bed with Tiger-Mom and Tiger-Dad and become a cuddly little tiger cub.
With warm illustrations and playful text, this delightful story first published in Germany shows just how sweet life can be for a little tiger!
