Department of Covert Operations Training Officer Kendra Carlsen has been begging her boss to let her go into the field for years. When he finally agrees to send her along on a training exercise in Costa Rica, she’s thrilled.

Bear-shifter Declan MacBride, on the other hand, is anything but pleased. He’s been crushing on Kendra since he started working at the DOC seven years ago. Spending two weeks in the same jungle with her is putting a serious strain on him.

When the team gets ambushed, Kendra and Declan are forced to depend on each other. But the bear-shifter soon discovers that fighting bloodthirsty enemies isn’t nearly as hard as fighting his attraction to the beautiful woman he’ll do anything to protect.

Check Out This Sneak Peek of Her Wild Hero:

Kendra glanced at Declan to see him looking off into the jungle again.

“What aren’t you guys telling me?” she asked. “Declan, where have you been disappearing to all day?”

It was Tate who answered. “Declan thinks someone’s following us and has been since late last night.”

She pinned Declan with a look. “You think? Or you know?”

He met her gaze. “There’s definitely someone out there, but they’re quiet—too quiet. And they’re keeping their distance most of the time. Every once in a while though, I’ll hear them move closer, but they disappear whenever I try to get a look at them.”

Kendra glanced at each of the guys. She knew they trusted Declan’s instincts, so that meant she did, too. “Should we tell the others?”

“Tell them what?” Tate asked. “That we’re suspicious about the coordinates we’ve been following for the last three days? That the bear shifter on our team is certain he’s heard someone following us, but that they’re a couple miles away? Would you believe any of that if you didn’t work for the DCO?”

He had a point. “So, what do we do?”

“We keep our eyes open and be ready if the shit hits the fan,” Declan said.

Borders Book Stores May Be Sold?

Posted March 21, 2008 by Holly in News | 9 Comments

From CNBC.com:

By DAVID RUNK updated 1:48 p.m. PT, Thurs., March. 20, 2008

DETROIT – Borders could become the latest victim of the credit squeeze, announcing Thursday that it may put itself up for sale. Rival Barnes & Noble, meanwhile, saw fourth-quarter profits drop 9 percent as the industry struggles with intense competition from discounters.

Shares in Borders tumbled more than 39 percent as the nation’s second-largest bookseller said it was considering options including the sale of the company or certain divisions, and that it had lined up $42.5 million in financing to help it keep running through the year.

“It’s a crunch of three C’s_ credit, capital and consumer spending,” said Dan Ansell, a partner at Greenberg Traurig LLP and chairman of its real estate operations division.

Despite its earnings slide, Barnes & Noble boosted its dividends and surprised Wall Street with predictions of a profitable first quarter. Analysts said the nation’s largest book seller would be the most likely suitor for Borders.

Both big bookstore chains have deepened discounts for their members, as shoppers are even more focused on low prices for discretionary items as they pay higher gas and food costs.

But analyst Michael Norris at market research firm Simba Information said customers are increasingly turning to wholesale clubs and other discounters like Target Corp. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. for books and other merchandise.

“This is going to be a really tough year” for booksellers, Norris said.

Stacy had originally posted this on her blog, and since I still can’t comment there, I’m posting it here instead.

Do you visit the bookstores, or buy online?
Which do you do more of?
Do you shop at Borders, or the other place instead?

I have to wonder how much eBook sales are affecting the decline in sales at major book stores. Personally, I buy 90% of my books in eFormat, because my only other option is Wal-Mart (as I’ve mentioned before, I’m an hour away from a Borders/Barnes) and not only is their selection limited, but I’m somewhat morally opposed to buying all my books from there.

If I’m in the area, or out shopping with friends, my preferred chain is Borders. I think the ambiance is better, and the customer service is far better than that of my Barnes.

Regardless, I think online ordering and eBook sales are having the biggest impact. I think Borders would do better to start offering eBook sales through their website (no idea if this is even possible, or it’s already in the works) or, even better, books through their website. They’ve partnered with Amazon to order books online, but unlike Barnes, they don’t offer sales/shipping direct through their site.

A Letter to My Fiance

Posted February 8, 2008 by Holly in Discussions, News | 11 Comments

Dear MM,

I’m so terribly, terribly sorry. I feel so ashamed of myself. I know we’ve discussed this in years past, and came to an agreement that was mutually beneficial (well, I think still think it was more to your benefit than mine) but I just couldn’t help myself. I tried to be strong. Really I did. But it was so hard!

Yes, I did it. I bought 5 books and only paid for four. Yes, I know we agreed I wouldn’t buy anymore books this month, especially with the wedding coming up so soon, but really, it wasn’t my fault.

It’s all Borders fault. Those bastards.

No, really. I never would have bought them if they hadn’t been sneaky and underhanded, and been “exploiting” my “frailty at a time of emotional weakness.”

See, I told you, it’s all their fault.

Jane said so. You believe her, don’t you?

I promise to try and restrain myself better next time. But, I can’t make any promises. After all, we’ll have been married almost a full year by the time next Valentines Day rolls around. And I’m sure I’ll be feeling ever more “emotionally weak” by then.

Forgive me?


Your weak Fiance

P.S. I’m sure you’re disappointed in me, but if you’d like, you’re more than welcome to “exploit” my emotional distress further by visiting the store. 5 for 4 is a great deal, no?
