Running a marathon is a great goal, but after getting married, moving overseas, and having twin girls, it was hard to do any kind of workout. Whether you want to run a marathon for a cause, to get into shape, or for any other reason, you will prove something to yourself that you can push your body and mind further than you thought possible. A lot goes into training, and I’ve taken the knowledge I’ve gained training for a marathon after several years off from working out combined with my experience in nutrition and background in meteorology to give a practical, relatable, easy-to-follow training guidebook for the novice, busy runner. You can follow the advice, laugh at the stories, and before you know it, you will be crossing the finish line and be one of the 0.5% of the population who has finished a 26.2 mile (42.2 km) marathon, and check it off your bucket list!
Teenage heiress Kaya experiences her first taste of freedom when she’s kidnapped from her sheltered life. But as she forms an unlikely connection with her abductor, Luke, her adventure takes a strange turn. Now, as her father’s men and her devoted bodyguard scour the woods to find her, she wonders if staying in the arms of her abductor is the safer place to be. At least, that’s what her heart is saying—her head is saying run…
There is nothing magical about growing up in a mountainside castle, when it’s your prison. Kaya’s ruthless and powerful father keeps her under lock and key, watched every second of the day–and Kaya’s not really sure why. She’s just a normal girl…no one special. She doesn’t understand her father’s obsession with her safety – until she is kidnapped.
Dragged through a brutal wilderness, Kaya’s captor shows her the devastating truth, and even though he has dark secrets of his own, she is inexplicably drawn to him–when the stars are in your eyes, sometimes the line between right and wrong gets blurred. Passion obliterates common sense. Love… makes you reckless.
Dangerously passionate and darkly romantic, SERENADE is a page-turning thriller and seductive love story.
