From New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather comes the first of a wonderful new trilogy, The Blackwater Brides, set in the sensually im-proper Georgian period, in which three noble brothers discover they will be forced to find brides under highly unusual circumstances. Jasper Sullivan, Earl of Blackwater, needs a prostitute. Not in the usual way, however. His wealthy uncle’s will promises to divide his huge fortune among his nephews if each rescues a fallen woman . . . by marrying her! And since Jasper’s estates were already mortgaged to the hilt before he inherited them, when he catches a pretty young prostitute trying to pick his pocket, he immediately makes his proposal. Clarissa Astley is not at all what Jasper believes. The orphaned daughter of a prosperous merchant, she is searching the seedier districts of London for her young brother, abducted by their evil guardian, who wants the little boy’s inheritance. But she needs powerful help, and the darkly handsome Earl of Blackwater is certainly that. So she pretends to be exactly what he assumed— a risky charade for an innocent virgin. But when passion flares between Jasper and Clarissa, the deception becomes even more difficult to handle. . . .

Your mind is a BATTLEGROUND, butTHE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE We have all experienced battles with thoughts that need to be diffused anddefeated. We have all battled mental strongholds, though we may nothave realized it. A stronghold of the mind is a lie that Satan has establishedin our thinking that we count as true but is actually a false belief. When weembrace these lies, they affect our attitudes, emotions, and behaviors. God wants all of His children to walk in victory and freedom in their thoughtlives. But the Bible tells us that we have an evil and deceptive enemy who is“the father of lies and of all that is false” (John 8:44, AMP). Defeating Strongholds of the Mind explains how Satan traps us in lies andfalse perceptions. It shows us how to partner with God, enter into worship,and embrace our kingdom identity to gain victory through: Identifying thinking patterns that can become strongholds Explaining how certain types of entertainment can negatively influence our thinking Offering specific prayers to bring victory in the mental battles we fight Sharing stories from people who have overcome the deceptions, struggles, and strongholds in their minds

Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.
