This book is all about secrets to help gain muscle, strength, speed, lose fat, lose fat, sleep better, heal injuries etc, that are too edgy to make it into mainstream literature. I know him from The 4 Hour Workweek , one of the books that I came across when trying to learn how to market ebooks. Basically, the guy makes tons of money w/o working any, replaced himself completely in his company before he was 30 after having a nervous breakdown from working too much by using very outside the box methods. He's all about finding loopholes around normal problems. Warning: it's a giant book, and has a section about super sex that you don't want your kids to come across!   Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

Sizzling, explicit regency romance. Sophia believes that Bow street magistrate, Ross, is responsible for her brother's death. So she gets hired as his assistant, determined to find something to bring him down. But she doesn't expect to fall in love with him. Ross's sworn enemy is Nick Gentry, the leader of thieves...only he's no really Nick Gentry....he's really Sophia's brother, who's not dead after all. So, now that Ross has Nick in his custody - and he certainly is guilty enough to hang for his crimes, what is Ross to do? He loves Sophia and doesn't want to hurt her. So, how to get out of this tangle?

I think Lisa's not putting enough time into her new books - these characters are "cardboard".  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

I am not a fan of the author's short stories, but these, set around the Christmas holidays were more poignant.  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog
