From the outside, the prosecution's case looked bulletproof, but Marcia Clark knew better. Mountains of physical evidence connected O. J. Simpson to the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, but that didn't mean it would be easy. For the woman charged with prosecuting the "Trial of the Century", the light of fame would glow white hot, as the media scrutinized her strategy, her family, even her hair. As the case spun out of control, Marcia Clark stood tall.
If it isn't bad enough that Savannah Jones has succumbed to the old cliché of falling for her boss, now she's expecting his baby! Everyone knows that gorgeous, dynamic Rick Sullivan is a confirmed bachelor, wedded firmly to his work. So, convinced there's no happy ending for her, Savannah tries to resign quietly. Only, Rick won't let her go, for reasons he doesn't fully understand, and she won't marry him out of duty. It's stalemate! Unless this brooding boss can let go and tap in to his inner doting daddy....

Rick’s starting to suspect Savannah’s the most precious jewel in the company. Then an unexpected baby bump throws everything off course!
"Great love story"
On September 3, 1901, a Protestant missionary named Ellen Stone set out on horseback across the mountainous hinterlands of Balkan Macedonia and was ambushed by a band of armed revolutionaries. In The Miss Stone Affair, Teresa Carpenter re-creates an event that captured the attention of the world and posed a dilemma for incoming president Theodore Roosevelt. Should he send in the Navy or not? And, if so, send it where? Drawing upon a wealth of contemporary correspondence and documents, Carpenter constructs a narrative that is suspenseful, harrowing, and at times even comical. It is a story for our time.
