M. Leighton’s ´´freakin’ hot´´ Down to You was just the beginning. ´´Up to Me…has even more shockers in store!´´ (Examiner.com) For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt as right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash has a well-earned ´´bad boy´´ reputation, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is. Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most. Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined. Now she has to trust Cash with her life - and for Olivia, that’s much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart. 1.

Love from Heaven provides a unique insight into love; its origin, its importance and the different ways we can love. Lorna explains why it is that we love ourselves so little and teaches how people can release more of the love that we all have locked away inside ourselves. She describes how we get into the habit of finding fault with our lives, how we have a choice not to harden our hearts and give into hate, why our expectations of romantic love are unrealistic and how we will cause massive problems for ourselves and future generations if we don´t start loving the planet more. Lorna also tells us of the wave of love that God has, on occasions, released in the world and its impact on humanity. This book will transform the way people think about love; it will stir up the love that is within them, making them more compassionate, happier and helping to change their lives and those of the people around them. 1.
