Hope ignites book Hope ignites
When a movie crew asks to film on his cattle ranch, Logan McCormack doesn't expect Desiree Jenkins, the young, sought-after star, to be so open, so down-to-earth, or so intimately interested in him. But the last thing a loner like Logan needs is a distraction like Des, who wouldn't understand what it's like to live peacefully off the land. But it's Logan who doesn't understand. What Des wants is an escape from paparazzi and gossip columns, and she's found it at Logan's ranch. Now it's up to her to prove that she's like any other girl looking to be accepted for who she is. And she's hoping that it's by this real-life cowboy who has everything it takes--and more--to give her the kind of happily ever after that can't be found in the movies.

One evening in Paris book One evening in Paris
Alain Bonnard, the owner of a small art cinema in Paris, is a dyed-in-the-wool nostalgic. He wants to show films that create dreams, and he likes most of the people that come to his cinema. Particularly the enchanting, shy woman in the red coat who turns up every Wednesday in row 17. What could her story be? One evening, Alain plucks up courage and invites the unknown beauty to dinner. The most tender of love stories is just getting under way when something incredible happens: The Cinéma Paradis is going to be the location of Allan Woods’ new film Tender Memories of Paris. Suddenly, the little cinema and its owner are the focus of public attention, and the red-plush seats are sold out every evening. But the mystery woman Alain has just fallen in love with seems suddenly to have vanished. Is this just coincidence? In One Evening in Paris by Nicolas Barreau, Alain sets off in search of her and becomes part of a story more delightful than anything the cinema has to offer.
