Hired by a Scotsman in Heartbreak Creek to purchase thoroughbreds, he travels to England, unaware that a traumatized horse and a beautiful Englishwoman will change his life forever. Josephine Cathcart loves two things: her illegitimate son and her injured stallion. Faced with her father&rsquo;s looming bankruptcy, she must choose between a loveless marriage to the man who ruined her, or risk her horse and her future on a handsome, taciturn Texan and a high-stakes horse race. But as vengeful forces conspire against them, will Rafe&rsquo;s love and healing touch be enough to save her horse and protect her and her son?</p> <p>Solid Gold Seduction:&nbsp;It&#39;s more precious than gold ... The discovery of gold on Drake land significantly increases middle son Warren&#39;s already overflowing coffers. His ranch is the talk of exclusive Paradise Cove. But it&#39;s his gorgeous neighbor who&#39;s arousing the California cowboy&#39;s fantasies. Charli Reed sits a horse like no woman Warren&#39;s ever seen. Instead of pushing him away, her blatant lack of interest only increases his desire to execute the ultimate seduction. Just because Warren&#39;s as rich as Midas doesn&#39;t make the entrepreneur turned rancher a hero in Charli&#39;s eyes. And how can she trust a Drake--her family&#39;s most hated enemy. But Warren&#39;s sensual passion is slowly melting her resistance. Working together to catch the thieves who could turn their dreams to dust, Charli has to choose: hold on to the past or risk her heart for a love that&#39;s the most priceless treasure of all ...</p> </div> </div> MS PowerPoint 2010 for Beginners (Mid-Manhattan Library) http://www.nypl.org/node/284676 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Mid-Manhattan Library, 4th Floor PC Lab</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2015-01-26T18:30:00-05:00">Monday, January 26 - 6:30 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>Learn how to create a slideshow presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.
