MOTHERSHIP by Martin Leicht and Isla Neal
Teen pregnancy is never easy—especially not when extraterrestrials are involved. The first in a new trilogy that's part Juno and part Aliens.
Young Adult Science Fiction
In 2074, while attending the Hanover School for Expecting Teen Mothers aboard an earth-orbiting spaceship, sixteen-year-old Elvie finds herself in the middle of an alien race war and makes a startling discovery about her pregnancy.
Elvie Nara was doing just fine in the year 2074. She had a great best friend, a dad she adored, and bright future working on the Ares Project on Mars. But then she had to get involved with sweet, gorgeous, dumb-as-a-brick Cole—and now she's pregnant.
Getting shipped off to the Hanover School for Expecting Teen Mothers was not how Elvie imagined spending her junior year, but she can go with the flow. That is, until a team of hot commandos hijacks the ship—and one of them turns out to be Cole. She hasn't seen him since she told him she's pregnant, and now he's bursting into her new home to tell her that her teachers are aliens and want to use her unborn baby to repopulate their species? Nice try, buddy. You could have just called.
So fine, finding a way off this ship is priority number one, but first Elvie has to figure out how Cole ended up as a commando, work together with her arch-nemesis, and figure out if she even wants to be a mother—assuming they get back to Earth in one piece.

She takes a leap of faith, seeking help from the one man who recently put Evalle in his cross hairs--Black Ops specialist Isak Nyght.
While trying to stop the bloody troll-led gang wars, Evalle unwittingly exposes a secret that endangers all she holds dear, and complicates her already tumultuous love life with the mysterious Skinwalker, Storm. But when Evalle discovers she's the number one target in the Medb coven's ruthless plan to destroy all Beladors, the deadly Alterant is forced to make a game-changing decision with no time left on the clock.

When Meredith's grandmother, Livvie, dies suddenly, Sam uses his ample free time to create a computer program that will allow Meredith to have one last conversation with her grandmother.

BLOODLINE by James Rollins
The next installment of the Sigma Force series involves a genetic mystery with ties to both an ancient history and modern-day government, as only New York Times bestselling author James Rollins can tell it.
A yacht bearing a young American couple is attacked by Somali pirates, leading to bloodshed and the violent kidnapping of the pregnant woman on board. To aid in her rescue from the lawless and war-torn jungles of coastal Africa, Sigma Force enlists the aid of a unique search team: former army ranger Captain Tucker Wayne and his military war dog, Kane. But what appears to be a straightforward mission turns into a fiery ambush and betrayal—for this most valuable hostage is in fact the president's daughter.
Halfway around the world, a firebombing at a fertility clinic in the United States reveals a group of women collected from around the globe and enslaved to bear children by artificial means. One woman lives long enough to give birth to a stillborn baby, but a genetic study reveals the child bears an impossible abnormality—a triple helix of DNA.
To uncover the dark truth hidden within our genetic code and shrouded by a centuries-old conspiracy, Commander Gray Pierce and Tucker Wayne must team up to save an unborn child, a child whose very existence raises a pair of ageless questions:
Could you live forever?
Would you live forever?
LIVING PROOF by Kira Peikoff
In the year 2027, destroying an embryo is first-degree murder. What happens when a dying doctor with a secret falls in love with the man who's out to expose her?
Thriller | Science Fiction
In 2027, destroying an embryo is considered first-degree murder. Fertility clinics still exist, giving hope and new life to thousands of infertile families, but they have to pass rigorous inspections by the U.S. Department of Embryo Preservation. Fail an inspection, and you will be prosecuted.
Brilliant young doctor Arianna Drake seems to be thriving in the spotlight: her small clinic surpasses every government requirement, and its popularity has spiked—a sudden, rapid growth that leaves the DEP chief mystified. When he discovers Arianna's radical past as a supporter of an infamous scientist, he sends undercover agent Trent Rowe to investigate her for possible illegal activity.
As Trent is pulled into Arianna's enigmatic world, his own begins to unravel. The secret he finally uncovers will deeply move him—and jeopardize them both. With the clock ticking her life away, he finds himself questioning everything he knows to be true, and then must summon the courage to take the greatest risk of all. Nothing less than human life—and a major scientific breakthrough—hang in the balance.
A thought-provoking thriller by debut author Kira Peikoff, Living Proof is a celebration of love and life that cuts to the core of a major cultural debate of our time.

KATHY PEEL/ THE FAMILY MANAGER
NATIONAL SERVICE DOGS MONTH
Petco and Natural Balance Pet Foods® have joined forces once again to celebrate National Service Dog Month in September with a fundraiser on behalf of U.S. organizations that support and/or train service dogs. The annual fundraiser has always supported guide dogs, but this year in addition to guide dogs, it will also raise funds on behalf of all service dogs including Military Working Dogs and the country’s first ever national monument honoring Military Working Dogs.
“Guide dogs and Military Working Dogs are heroes, providing safe mobility, loving companionship and restoring confidence to their handlers. At least 10 million Americans live with vision loss and guide dogs are their precious lifelines to the world. Military Working Dogs support the war on terror, safeguard military bases and activities, and detect explosives before they inflict harm,” said Dick Van Patten of Natural Balance Pet Foods. “This year, we hope to raise $1 million to help these incredible guide dogs and Military Working Dogs for their important work.”
This is the first time in U.S. history that the U.S. Congress has elevated an animal, a dog, to national monument status by law, and both Natural Balance and Petco have been strong supporters of this initiative since the beginning. The National Monument, which will be dedicated in 2013, will feature a current day combat dog and its handler. The monument will reside at the 341st Training Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. All proceeds from the sale of 12 oz. Limited Edition Natural Balance Jerky Bars Treats at Petco will be donated to fund this national monument honoring Military Working Dogs.
From Sept. 2 – Sept. 22, 2012, contributions can be made at any Petco or Unleashed by Petco store or online at http://www.petco.com with all funds going to service dog organizations. In addition, proceeds from the purchase of 12 oz. Limited Edition Natural Balance Jerky Bars Treats at Petco will benefit the service dog monument at Lackland Air Force Base.
