A fun and empowering 6-week program to getting your weight down and energy up by getting sugar savvy and resetting your taste buds and your attitude, from the founder of Energy Up!, High Voltage. Unleash your inner girl power to take control of food so it doesn't control you. Can't eat just one? Yeah. There's a reason for that. New science shows that when we overload on sugar our brain receptors actually change, making it hard to regulate how much we eat. Sugar is addictive.

And when you're shaky, irritable and looking for your next food fix, you may not even realize itbut you're hooked. Like all of us, you just want to feel good and have energy for all the activities you do and love. But the foods you're counting on to get you there inevitably make you feel worsenot to mention lead to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, wrinkled skin (truly), and even cancer. Enough!

REVIEW
"Cat in a Sapphire Slipper" is the twentieth title in Carole Nelson Douglas's sassy Midnight Louie mystery series. The tough-talking, twenty-pound, tomcat PI is as feisty as ever as he and his gang try to keep his favorite roommate from losing her man. PR honcho Temple Barr's romance novelist aunt Kit has wound up in a romantic plot of her own. She's snagged one of the most eligible bachelors on the Strip, one of the elder Fontana brothers, a silver-tongued reputed ex-mobster with a heart of gold. There is to be a wedding...and where there is a wedding there is usually a bachelor party. Things go disastrously wrong when the entire party is hijacked and taken to a remote ranch out in the Nevada desert, a place where the women are wild and the sex is legal. And among the group? None other than Temple's own Matt, an ex-priest. Truly a fish out of water, he soon comes upon a beautiful young woman who is quite naked and most thoroughly dead. Given the remoteness of the location with very few suspects on hand (plus the Fontanas' shady reputation) this could be a very bad thing indeed. And Louie? Well, he managed to go along for the ride and once again it's up to that big old tomcat to bail out his humans and save the day. """" "Cat in a Sapphire Slipper" is a fast-paced, racy mystery with a loveable cast of characters and one terrific tough dude to keep them all in line.
A sassy, sexy, laugh-out-loud rom-com between the hottest man never to be tamed and the woman crazy enough to try SHE WANTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD. Taylor Reed is no stranger to selfish, uncaring CEOs. She was fired by one, which is why she has created her own executive training program--helping heartless bosses become more human. So Taylor shocks even herself when she agrees to coach Bennett Wade, the cutthroat exec who got her unceremoniously canned. She'd love to slam the door in his annoying but very handsome face, but the customers aren't exactly lining up at her door. Plus, this extreme makeover will give Taylor the golden opportunity to prove that her program works like a charm. HE WANTS TO BUY IT. Bennett Wade is many things--arrogant, smug, brusque--but trusting isn't one of them. Women just seem to be after his billions. So when he hires Taylor Reed, he has no desire to change. Bennett is trying to win over the feminist owner of a company he desperately wants to buy, but something about the fiery Taylor thaws the ice around his heart, making Bennett feel things he never quite planned on. And if there's one thing Bennett can't stand, it's when things don't go according to plan . They are a match tailor-made for trouble.
