The first three full-length novels of the Immortal Vegas Series in one box set, plus an introductory novella. One Wilde Night Tarot-reading artifact hunter Sara Wilde has had her share of tough assignments, but this one just might take the cake. When her newest client hires her to steal a fertility idol from an Amazonian sex-and-death cult, she finds herself south of the equator and shoulder deep in true believers, while Rio de Janeiro gears up for the closing celebrations of Carnival. Stealing the idol is one thing, however. Keeping it is another. The arcane black market has drawn a host of cutthroat operatives and Sara's now in their sights. In a race across one of the most colorful cities in South America on its most famed night of the year, Sara must navigate cunning enemies, backstabbing allies, a fifty-foot wedding cake float and a new, sensually mysterious contact who may be friend or foe…and whose name she'll never know if she doesn't survive  One Wilde Night. Getting Wilde Using her well-worn Tarot deck, magical-artifacts hunter Sara Wilde can find anything–for a price. And the price had better be right, since she needs to finance her own personal mission to rescue several young psychics recently sold on the paranormal black market. Enter Sara's most mysterious client, the wickedly sexy Magician, with a job that could yield the ultimate payday. All she'll have to do is get behind Vatican walls… and steal the Devil himself. But play with the Devil and you're bound to get burned. From the twisting catacombs of Rome to the neon streets of Vegas, Sara confronts ancient enemies, powerful demigods, a roiling magical underworld about to explode… and immortal passions that might require the ultimate sacrifice. But oh, what a way to go. No matter how the cards play out, things are about to get  Wilde . Wilde Card All that glitters may not be gold. When an antique gold show comes to Vegas, artifact-hunter Sara Wilde's job is simple: to locate and liberate a set of relics rumored to give their bearers access to an ancient, incredible power. Yet within the Connected community, whispers of a war against magic draw every psychic, mystic, warlock, and witch to Sin City. The most powerful Connected also covet the infamous relics, but no one wants them more than Sara's client–the insufferably arrogant, criminally sensual, and endlessly evasive Magician. Sara's heist takes a turn for the trickier as the smoky-eyed specter from her past, Detective Brody Rooks, is assigned to investigate a break-in at the gold show, forcing her to confront the one man in Vegas she can't bluff. Worse, as the game changes anew, Sara is forced to turn to the one person she knows will manipulate, obfuscate and beguile to get whatever he craves. Only now, it seems, the Magician wants her. Sometimes, when the deck is stacked against you… you've got to play the  Wilde Card. Born To Be Wilde The past has a way of catching up with you. If there's one thing that Tarot-reading magical artifacts hunter Sara Wilde has never been able to track down, it's the truth about her own past. But now a powerful new threat to the psychic community will take Sara back to where it all began: the last job she worked with Officer Brody Rooks as "Psychic Teen Sariah," the job that destroyed her life and sent her on the run. Because the enemy she fled all those years ago has returned… with a posse of demons as his personal entourage. From the glittering chaos of Las Vegas to the Lost City of Atlantis, Sara must risk everything in a quest for vengeance that grows darker and more twisted with every step. To succeed she'll have to face the truth about her past, her abilities…and the impossible, unstoppable attraction she has to the Magician. A truth that will reveal her ultimate role in the war on magic. Life is full of surprises when you are  Born to Be Wilde.

Olivia Estmond is tired of waiting to be attacked. It is time for the Keepers to strike first against the Reaper Empress. Preparing to fight is not a new concept for Liv, but living with a target on your back is not something she has ever dealt with. The Reapers were ordered to take out the entire Estmond family, and unless the Keepers did something about it, they wouldn’t stop until their mission was complete. Not long ago, Aiden was a high-ranking soldier in the Reaper Army, but now he has fallen from grace in the eyes of the Empress. More than that, he wants his best friend back. He grew up with Jack and the two were once like brothers. Now, more than ever, he needed his brother. However, what he didn’t expect from becoming a double agent, was the attraction to a sexy red headed Keeper that came with the job.  Summer Hollow – Prequel Novella Kat Davenport spends her nights guarding souls and attends high school by day. The Bay Area graveyards are a hot bed for Reaper activity and slow nights are rare. She is good at what she does and loves every minute of it. But when she and her father are suddenly reassigned to the blink and you’ll miss it town of Summer Hollow, she is far from happy about the move. Gregory Estmond has taken over the graveyard in Summer Hollow. His family has guarded this Graveyard for generations and now it was all his, or so he thought. Another Keeper has been sent to help him until he comes of age. Which would be totally fine, but it wasn’t just one Keeper, his daughter arrived with him. Kat was loud mouthed, inappropriate at times and fearless. Two out of three of those things were completely the opposite of him.

First three books in Ali and Weston’s best selling MC series… Ryder I’m not a good man. Not worthy of redemption.  As President of the Lost Breed MC, I fight, f**k and take what’s mine.  But everything changed in the blink of an eye, and now I got a kid, my brother’s kid. The teenage bastard is just like me. And he’s gone missing.  My only hope is that the hot piece of ass that’s been assigned as my nephew’s parole officer is willing to help out a criminal like me.  She’s got something to prove to the world after losing her sister, and I plan on taking full advantage of her willingness.  She’s innocent, good hearted and sexy as f**k. The kind of girl I like to break in the bedroom. I’m driven mad with the desire to gain her affection, to be the one that wakes her up in the dead of night to take advantage of her softness and remind her who’s King.  Why? Because she’s not buying my shit.  And I love it. Axel They wanted to attack my house. My family. My MC.  And for that, I brought hell to their doorstep.  An eye for an eye.  Little did I know that the favor would be returned in full.  Everything I hold dear is threatened, including the beautiful girl who holds my heart and doesn’t know it yet.  Shit gets serious when the cops show up with a little one that’s supposedly mine? My MC has always been the only family I’ve ever had, but times are changing.  There’s nothing I won’t do to protect what’s mine from The Black Hearts.  Even kill – every last one of them.  Jax Seven men were killed last night.  Their bodies were sliced and diced by a psycho with a machete, and no matter what angle I look at it from, I know it’s only a matter of time before I have to get my hands dirty. Real dirty. Things gets even more complicated when Holly Whitton, the girl who captured my heart a decade ago, moves back to New York City. She has secrets, that much is clear, but I can’t help but be drawn to her warmth. She’s a haven from the chaos that lingers at my doorstep, and she’s my responsibility to protect. But my life with my MC is a threat to her—and so is the man with the machete and the hunger for blood. Maybe I’m the one I need to protect her from. Maybe I’m the reason it will all fall apart. Or maybe I’m the only one who can hold it all together.

Steamy meets sweet when the Campbell family and a romance book club collide! Join the club and get your Happy Ending. USA Today Bestselling Series!  The Happy Endings Book Club Boxed Set includes three full-length novels: Hidden Hollywood, Inviting Trouble, and So Revealing. Book 1: Hidden Hollywood She’s on top… When superstar actress Claire Jordan researched her role for the Fierce Trilogy movies, she never expected the bond she feels with the author and her romance book club aka The Happy Endings Book Club. Soon Claire finds herself confessing her secret longing for a regular guy—no more egocentric wealthy players—and the book club is all too ready to help. In disguise as a regular girl, she’s all set for a date with book-club-approved Josh Campbell. He’s on top… Billionaire tech CEO Jake Campbell is weary of gold-digging women, especially the glamorous superficial types. So when his identical twin, Josh, calls in a favor, asking Jake to step in as him on a date, Jake figures one of Josh’s cute girl-next-door types might be just what he needs. One night of passion with the sweet girl next door leaves Jake wanting more, except she seems to have vanished. Sometimes a Happy Ending is just the beginning. Book 2: Inviting Trouble Madison Campbell has worshipped her older brother’s best friend, Parker Shaw, for as long as she can remember. So the night before he leaves for the Air Force, she decides he’s leaving town with her virginity. All she has to do is transform her tomboy self into a sexy woman with a bit of borrowed makeup and some creative fashion choices. The results? One drunken kiss that Park doesn’t even remember. Ten years later, no man has ever gotten close to her heart the way Park did. And now that he’s back, the very unfeminine Madison refuses to blow her second chance. But when her bold attempts to snag his attention (“Oops! Dropped my towel.”) fail miserably, she does something completely insane—she caves to a makeover from the meddling matchmaker in charge of The Happy Endings Book Club. Hey, Park, you want some of this? Madison is about to find out. Book 3: So Revealing The last thing Charlotte Vega needs is a cocky HOT stuntman like Ty Campbell in her life. But when he pulls the ultimate stunt—a sexy romantic gesture that ends with a charming invitation to a sunset dinner cruise—she finds him impossible to resist. Cue disaster.  Their rocky first date goes from bad to worse when his yacht (okay, it’s actually borrowed) gets stranded in deep mud. Turns out there’s nothing Ty can do but wait hours and hours for high tide with no power, no way to cook dinner, and a hangry sexy-as-hell woman.  But Ty is determined to salvage the date so he starts a game to pass the time. Only what Ty learns makes him realize he may have just botched a date with the perfect woman. How will he ever win her now?

SEASIDE DREAMS (Book 1) SEASIDE HEARTS (Book 2) SEASIDE SUNSETS (Book 3) IN SEASIDE DREAMS…  Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.    Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for–or even realized he was missing.  After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son–even Bella? *** IN SEASIDE HEARTS…  Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident–except when she's around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother's new cougar lifestyle, Jenna's giving up on Peter–and is ready to explore other men.  As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He's looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who's so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.  When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete's true feelings, and he's powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux–the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she's ever seen–or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?   *** IN SEASIDE SUNSETS…  Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.  For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother–and falling in love is not in his plans.  From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sensual, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie's business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie's life–and his heart–upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.  ** SEASIDE SUMMERS is part of the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

At-Home Art and Photography Available Through Two New Books

Chances are whatever arts-related outings that were scheduled for this month are off the table, but photographer Stephen Frailey and artist Shantell Martin aren’t about to let canceled plans dampen their respective book launches.
Frailey’s new book “Looking at Photography” opens windows to the work of Tim Walker, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Nick Knight, Alex Prager, Collier Schorr, Juergen Teller, Deborah Turbeville and others. His skill set includes curator, editor and educator (he chaired photography for 20 years at the School of Visual Arts until 2018). His new time borrows from the concept presented in 1973 by John Szarkowski in “Looking At Photographs: 100 Pictures from the Collection of the Museum of Modern Art.” Frailey picks up where the MoMA’s former director of photography left off by examining images from the early Eighties on. Each of the 100 photos is accompanied with insights about the photographers. Readers will learn how Knight, for example, “has emboldened the medium to champion complex photographic technology and forays into digital sculpture, holography and virtual reality.” Frailey chose the 100 based on what he had perceived as their influence in the classroom over a 30-year stretch.
Asked how these days of self-quarantine may influence fashion photographers, Frailey said,

William Allan Neilson

Genre: Classics

Publish Date: July 13, 2015

Publisher: Comet Content Providers

Seller: Ishan Kohli


The purpose of Kids Book is to provide, in ten volumes containing about five thousand pages, a classified collection of tales, stories, and poems, both ancient and modern, suitable for boys and girls of from six to sixteen years of age. Thoughtful parents and teachers, who realize the evils of indiscriminate reading on the part of children, will appreciate the educational value of such a collection. A child's taste in reading is formed, as a rule, in the first ten or twelve years of its life and experience has shown that the childish mind will prefer good literature to any other, if access to it is made easy, and will develop far better on literature of proved merit than on trivial or transitory material. The boy or girl who becomes familiar with the charming tales and poems in this collection will have gained a knowledge of literature and history that will be of high value in other school and home work. Here are the real elements of imaginative narration, poetry, and ethics, which should enter into the education of every English-speaking child. This collection, carefully used by parents and teachers with due reference to individual tastes and needs, will make many children enjoy good literature. It will inspire them with a love of good reading, which is the best possible result of any elementary education. The child himself should be encouraged to make his own selections from this large and varied collection, the child's enjoyment being the object in view. A real and lasting interest in literature or in scholarship is only to be developed through the individual's enjoyment of his mental occupations.

Dragonlands, Books 1 – 3: Hidden, Hunted, and Retribution  Authors Megg Jensen  Author Sort Name Jensen, Megg  Description USA Today Bestselling Box Set! Enter the world of Dragonlands with the first three novels from this ongoing, bestselling epic fantasy series.  Includes:  Hidden:  The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.  Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.  Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.  What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.  Hunted:  The fog that trapped the people of Hutton's Bridge for eighty years has disappeared, but now so have the villagers.  Fearing the worst, Tressa and Bastian must navigate a new and dangerous world in search of their people. Among their allies are a healer, a warrior, and even a dragon–but their enemies are far greater.  Hutton's Bridge has long protected a powerful secret, one the dragonlords will kill to control. As the realms rise, Tressa and Bastian risk everything to save their people, until one must make the ultimate sacrifice.  Retribution:  Tensions are mounting in the Dragonlands. The dragon hordes are mustering, each with its own agenda. But Tressa must conquer her personal demons before answering the call to war.  Gravely ill, her body undergoing mysterious and frightening changes, she travels to a distant land for the answers crucial to her survival.

After the palatial elegance of the Royal Romeo series, it's time to relax in the warm, summertime vibes of the North Carolina shores, where sun, fun, and romance take center stage, with the first three books of the series bundled for the first time… Falling for Mr. Wrong If lusting after him is wrong, she doesn't want to be right… Harper Landry sometimes feels like she's turned into a professional dater. Which might not be such a bad job if it didn't involve having to spend so much time with a succession of truly undesirable men who were obviously still single for good reason. So she's elated when she ends up on a blind date with the charming and handsome Danny Greevy, a man who seems too good to be true. But Harper's starting to think that too good to be true might be downright perfect for her. Particularly when the man who launched her man-drought shows up unexpectedly to throw a wrench in her life yet again.Noah Gunderson is back in town after traveling the world for the past several years. Forced to return home after promising his mother on her deathbed to save the beloved inn that she'd nearly run into the ground, he's planning to get far away from Verity Beach just as soon as he's got the inn back in the black. And he's determined not to let the distraction of Harper Landry, the one that got away, keep him here a moment longer. Falling for Mr. Maybe If it swells, ride it… Georgie Childress moved to Verity Beach to lick her wounds after her controlling fiancé pulled a runner mere weeks before the wedding. Jobless and desperate to flee his turf, she sought solace in the quietude of the ocean, happily escaping into her own thoughts while surrounded by diving dolphins and cacophonous seagulls. Only when she accidentally runs over some random—and super sexy—surfer dude's surfboard does she start to wonder if she needs to bring her head out of the clouds and start paying attention to life again.Spencer Willoughby long ago fled his rigid upbringing, shunning the familial expectations of an Ivy League education and Wall Street career in favor of the sun, sand and surf along North Carolina's Outer Banks. Give him a surfboard and he's a happy man. That is until some nutty lady with a penchant for fender-benders backs into his beloved hand-crafted wooden surfboard, snapping it in half. It's enough to make a man crazy—crazier still because the kooky blond is making his blood run hot.Just when he finally gets the woman out of his head, Spencer is unwittingly paired off with her at a wedding as a favor to a friend, forcing him to make nice with his board-murdering nemesis who he might just want to ride off into the sunset. Falling for Mr. No Way in Hell Taking the plunge… Lacy Caldwell's mermaid gig at a cheesy roadside beach bar provided much-needed income while she pursues her graduate degree. That is until the beloved owner dies and her greedy nephew announces he's cashing out by closing the bar and selling the property to a developer who's going to replace the kitschy charm of the Mermaid's Purse with ocean-view condos. Cameron Sanders can't believe his good luck. Struggling financially, he's thrilled to find out some random, ancient aunt he hardly knew died and left him an inheritance that'll help take the money monkey off his back. He's ready to go to the mat in battle when some annoying mermaid from the bar tries to throw a wrench in his plans. But things get complicated when he realizes that she's a woman he's started to have feelings for.

Box set of the first three books in the Bestselling Lawson Brothers series – Love So Hot, Love So True, and Love So Irresistible. LOVE SO HOT Bank Teller and all around good girl, Sydney McKnight, is tired of being the girl all the guys want to have as a friend. Who better to help unleash her inner vixen than her best friend and secret crush, Brody Lawson? Only, Sydney has no idea how to ask him, without their friendship going up in flames, until that is, the town of Jessamine's annual Firemen's Auction gives her the perfect excuse to set her plan into motion. Fire Captain Brody Lawson has been in love with his best friend, Sydney, for years, but he would never risk their friendship by confessing his feelings to her. So, when Sydney beats out the competition to buy his time at the annual Firemen's Auction, Brody can hardly believe his luck until she asks him to teach her how to seduce a fellow fireman. Now, it’s up to Brody to show Sydney how perfect she already is and convince her that the only man for her is him, because if Sydney is going to seduce any man, it’s going to be him. And once he has her in his bed, he’s not letting her go. Love So True Single mom, Bailey Yates, has had enough of bad boys to last her the next eighteen years. She’s always been a sucker for them, and Jessamine’s ultimate bad boy, Lucas Lawson, is no exception for her. So, when he returns to town, naturally she’s drawn to him. And naturally, she must avoid him at all costs—no matter how attracted she is to him. She’ll give him a job, and keep her distance…until Lucas saves her son from a hit and run. Finally, Lucas Lawson is a free man. After serving five years in prison for embezzlement, he’s come home to Jessamine to right the wrongs he committed against his friends and family. But, it won’t be easy. For starters, the brother he’s looked up to his entire life wants nothing to do with him, and no one in town trusts Lucas enough to give him a chance to make amends. Until, Bailey Yates gives him a job at her family’s diner.  All former Navy SEAL Mason Lawson craves is solitude. Unfortunately, his new neighbor won’t allow him the peace he so desperately needs. Between the traffic and the music, Mason is constantly on edge—not exactly what the doctor ordered for someone recovering from a bullet to the leg. However, when he finally has enough and confronts his neighbor, nothing can prepare him for how hot he’d get for the teacher next door. Love So Irresistible Piano teacher Skylar Jernigan loves everything about the town of Jessamine—from the quaint Main Street shops to the people who own them. Unfortunately, once she’s chewed up and spit out by her sexy neighbor, Skylar begins to question her decision to move to a new town. Until, that is, she learns he’s suffering from a war wound and refuses to have anything to do with his family. Now, Skylar is determined to help Mason recover—mentally, physically and socially—until he turns the tables and sets out to seduce Skylar right out of her meddling ways. Only seduction turns into something more and soon, Mason can’t stop looking for excuses to be with her. But when the Navy wants Mason to reenlist for a dangerous mission, will Skylar be too irresistible for him to leave?

This is a collection of the first three titles in The Descent Series, which are gritty urban fantasy books about an exorcist, a witch, and their battles against the forces of Heaven and Hell. (Approx. 200,000 words total.) Books included: 1. Death's Hand 2. The Darkest Gate 3. Dark Union DEATH'S HAND Elise Kavanagh doesn't want to hunt demons anymore. It's been five years since she killed her last enemy, and life has been quiet since then. She went to college. Got a job, and then lost it. Made a friend or two. Lived a normal life. Now her former partner, a powerful witch named James Faulkner, wants Elise to fight one more time. The daughter of a coven member has been possessed, and Elise is the only exorcist nearby. Becoming a hero again would mean risking discovery by old enemies. But digging into the case reveals that it might already be too late–bodies are disappearing, demons slither through the night, and the cogs of apocalypse are beginning to turn. Some enemies aren't willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead… THE DARKEST GATE When Elise Kavanagh retired from demon hunting, she swore it would be permanent. But an attack from a powerful necromancer forced her back into the business, and now she's trying to balance her normal boyfriend and normal job with everything supernatural. Mr. Black is a demon hunter gone rogue. He's enslaving angels and stealing ethereal artifacts in pursuit of forbidden immortality, and an old grudge drives him to make his final stand in Elise's territory. Destroying her life and killing her friends isn't the goal, but it's a definite perk. A demonic overlord offers to join against Mr. Black and protect Elise's loved ones. All she needs to do is ally with the demons she's sworn to kill, at the cost of her morals–and maybe her immortal soul. But once she crosses that line, there's no turning back. Nothing is sacred when Heaven and Hell collide on Earth… DARK UNION Every fifty years, the most powerful ethereal and infernal beings convene on Earth to resolve conflicts with mediation by kopides–humans born to police relations between Heaven and Hell. They're meeting in Elise Kavanagh's territory this year, and she used to be the greatest kopis in the world. But she's not invited. An old friend, Lucas McIntyre, asks her to attend the summit in his place. But when she arrives, she discovers that a human faction called The Union has taken charge of the summit, and they're not playing nice. Worse yet, someone has killed a prominent Union member… and now they're demanding blood.

Read the first three books in the Borrowing Amor series, where New Mexico meets small-town romance.  Chile peppers, hot air balloons and white sand dunes mix with a small town mayor, a fake fiancé, and a second chance at love. Borrowing Amor: Love is a nuisance when all you want is to disappear. Two weeks before Christmas, Katie is kicked out of her apartment. Again. Rather than wander the streets and continue to work for a dirty cop, she decides to leave the city and disappear for good. But her car breaks down in a small New Mexican town, and everything is threatened when she falls for the charming mayor.  Sam Freedman is the first bachelor mayor of Amor. After convincing the locals that having a mayor without family responsibilities means he can dedicate all his time to the community, townspeople watch his every move. Then Katie Andersen shows up. Against Sam’s better judgement, he hires her to replace his event coordinator. Now he can barely think straight, let alone run a town.  In the midst of half-truths and outright lies, Katie and Sam desperately search for the place where honesty and trust lead to love. But they have to find it before the past catches up with them. Borrowing Love: It’s better to have loved and lost, they said. They were wrong. Ruby Freedman hasn’t left the small town of Amor in four years–not since her husband died. The memory of his fateful accident was enough to cause her to sell her airplane, and never ride in a car again. Then Parker Loveland comes back to town. Now she has to add him to her list of things she intends to avoid. After years away, Parker Loveland is back in Amor to celebrate his parents’ thirtieth wedding anniversary. He has worked hard to escape the clutches of his hometown, but when he runs into Ruby, the only girl he cared about in high school, and the only one that ever stood him up on a date, he’s torn between the embarrassment he felt more than a decade before, and his desire to be around her. Caught between memories of the past and fear of the future, it will take leaving Amor to help Ruby and Parker find the second chance they didn’t know they were looking for. Borrowing a Fiancé:   She wanted freedom. She got a fiancé instead. Melinda Garrett has been stuck managing her parent’s diner for over a decade, when all she had wanted was to go to college. When her younger sister gets married, Melinda reluctantly agrees to attend with her friend, Daniel, as her date. But when the pressure is on, she claims he is her fiancé, in hopes that her parents’ opinion of selling the diner will change. Daniel Armstrong isn’t the kind of guy a girl takes home to meet her parents, but when he offers to attend a wedding as Melinda’s date, he finds himself labeled as her future spouse. Now, challenges lie around every corner, testing Melinda’s claim that she and Daniel are in love. With every touch and fake kiss, the line blurs between fiction and reality, and it seems inevitable that at least one heart will be broken by the end of the weekend.

This special collection includes three full length novels – hundreds of pages of well-researched adventures and thrills. Fans of George MacDonald Fraser, Ian Fleming and John D. MacDonald will enjoy former Army Ranger turned covert agent Jake Fonko's globe-spanning adventures. Includes: Fonko in the Sun (Book 4), Fonko Bolo (Book 5) and The Mother of All Fonkos (Book 6) Fonko in the Sun (Book 4) – Grand Cayman 1983. When ex-Army Ranger turned soldier of fortune Jake Fonko is hired for a routine job in the Caribbean, the first day of his latest mission doesn't turn out as planned, with a bloody bank robbery, a barroom shootout, multiple aerial dogfights and a chopper crash in the Jamaican jungle welcoming him to the idyllic islands. Stumbling into possession of highly sensitive financial documents from the BCCI, Jake finds himself pursued relentlessly by crooks, cartels, corrupt politicians and the CIA and KGB. If he wants to survive the beautiful climes, Jake must find a way out of a mess that's anything but routine. But with no passport and no backup, are Jake's training and ironic wit enough to survive the suffocating surveillance? Fonko Bolo (Book 5) – Philippines 1986. After Army Ranger trained soldier of fortune Jake Fonko barely survives a trip to Calcutta, he returns to his Malibu home to recover—only to find an old CIA associate knocking at his door. Communist Philippine rebels threaten critical US military bases in the region, as well one of America's staunchest allies: Ferdinand Marcos. Despite previous problems when working with the agency, Jake accepts the simple mission after being bribed and blackmailed, agreeing to put the communist rebels out of commission. But of course his mission isn't really that simple—and so Jake must use his training, satirical wit and skills to prevent the rebels from seizing the country and escape the conflict alive. The Mother of All Fonkos (Book 6) – Kuwait 1990. When former Army Ranger turned freelance gun-for-hire Jake Fonko receives a cushy "consulting" offer in Kuwait City, he hops a plane and heads out for what he expects will be a relaxing four week stay. But soon after Jake lands, Saddam Hussein's army blitzkriegs the city, trapping everyone inside. Jake's new job is simple: survive the chaos and escape Kuwait. But playing all the roles required to make it out of the desert alive will tax Jake's training and ironic wit to the breaking point – and Iraqi prisons are hardly hospitable to former American soldiers…

Hi everyone, and welcome to a sneak peek at the all-new BERGER BOOKS! As the founding editor of Vertigo, I’m so excited to be back in comics in a big way and couldn’t be happier about setting up shop with the very fine crew at Dark Horse. Stories that are smart, sensational, and a bit strange have always been my passion — and I’m thrilled to present you with a quick look at our launch titles debuting in early 2018. Come experience weird realities, true fictions, dark secrets, and monsters of a different kind. I am so lucky to be working with these fantastic and fearless storytellers… and I can’t wait to hear what you think. Karen Berger @karenpberger Hungry Ghosts International chefs tell terrifying tales of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings all tainted with the common thread of food, as they play the daring samurai game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai or 100 Candles, and pray that they survive the challenge. Cooked up by Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown), reunited with Get Jiro! writer Joel Rose (La Pacifica, Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster!). Art by Alberto Ponticelli, Vanesa Del Rey, Paul Pope, Mateus Santolouco, and Leonardo Manco with color by José Villarrubia.

By Mat Johnson (Loving Day, Pym) and Warren Pleece (The Invisibles, Life Sucks). Incognegro: Renaissance Cub reporter Zane Pinchback goes “incognegro” for the first time in 1920s Harlem, passing as white to investigate the suspicious death of a black author. A page-turning mystery of racial divide, this series precedes the events of the above graphic novel, beautifully executed by the same creative team. Mata Hari The unseen side of the notorious exotic dancer and convicted double agent who was executed by a French firing squad in 1917 is explored in this haunting and gripping telling. By Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd) and Ariela Kristantina (Insexts) with color by Pat Masioni. The Seeds Girl meets alien meets journalist in this eco-thriller love story where fact-based reporting is gasping its last breath and Mother Nature already has other plans. And what’s with the bees?? By Ann Nocenti (Daredevil, Catwoman) and David Aja (Hawkeye, Immortal Iron Fist). The Originals: The Essential Edition An oversized new edition of Vertigo’s Eisner Award-winning graphic novel from comics legend Dave Gibbons. In this retro-futuristic city, two childhood friends join the toughest and most stylish gang around, but their dreams are dashed when deadly violence changes everyone’s lives.

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


It’s time to get your royal on with the first three books in the It’s Reigning Men series from bestselling author Jenny Gardiner, available together for the very first time! SOMETHING IN THE HEIR Sometimes a girl’s gotta sweep a prince off his feet… He’s a prince with a problem, she’s a commoner with a getaway plan. Modern-day Prince Adrian of Monaforte has a most old-fashioned problem: his demanding mother wants him wed to her best friend’s daughter, the hard-partying Serena. When his refusal falls on deaf ears, Adrian decides it’s time for him to slip away from his gilded cage and figure out his life, all on his own. As luck would have it, event photographer Emma Davison, weary of a revolving door of lost-cause men and tired of her outsider-looking-in career, is in need of her own escape clause, just in time to help a wayward prince in need. And she soon discovers that sometimes a girl’s gotta sweep a prince off his feet. For any girl that’s ever held out hope that some day her prince would come…or better yet, hoped that some day she’d come to him. HEIR TODAY GONE TOMORROW It's all fun and royal games until somebody's heart gets hurt In his line of work, royal heir Darcy Squires-Thornton has always been content playing second fiddle to close friend Prince Adrian, and happy, too, with whatever brief romantic encounters come his way. Especially one with carefree Caroline McKenzie, whose best friend is engaged to the prince, whose motto has always been "love the one you're with". But when the one she's no longer with is the one with whom she's fallen in love, what's a girl an ocean away to do? BAD TO THE THRONE Sometimes you can let your heir down a little too much… When wild-child Prince Alexander goes on a naked bender in a Vegas swimming pool, cocktail waitress Andi McDonough decides to preserve a shot of those family jewels on her phone. But when she’s fired for capturing the royal treasures, she heads off to find herself. After backpacking the world-over on a dime and a prayer, she finds herself in Rome, where a chance encounter with the wayward prince only reinforces to her that Prince Zander is indeed bad to the throne. And more than likely to her fragile heart as well.

This set of three complete novels follows Ellie Jordan, a paranormal detective in the heavily haunted city of Savannah, Georgia.

Included in this set: Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper (book 1) When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbing presence in the crumbling old mansion they've purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead, she finds herself confronting an older and more powerful evil that dwells within the walls of the house, stalking the living. Ellie must unravel the secret history behind the haunting in order to remove the ghost. She is aided by her new assistant Stacey, a recent film school graduate with a gift for capturing images and video of ghosts, and Jacob, a reluctant young psychic. Together, they will try to evict the dangerous spirits of the dead, whose threats to the family grow more terrifying every night. Cold Shadows (book 2) Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a difficult new case. Her clients are a family haunted by multiple ghosts and a poltergeist that wrecks their home at night. Their seven-year-old son’s invisible friends may not be imaginary at all, but the restless spirits of dead children. To clear her clients’ house of the dangerous entities, Ellie must unravel the mysterious deaths of another family who lived in the old mansion more than a hundred and sixty years ago—and she must do it before the ghosts can carry out their malevolent designs on her clients and their children. The Crawling Darkness (book 3) Ellie Jordan investigates an apartment building where a twisted, dangerous entity emerges from closets and doorways to terrorize the residents at night. A powerful spirit, it feeds on fear and takes the shape of its victims' worst nightmares. Ellie and her mentor Calvin have tried to capture the same entity before, in a different house nearby, an attempt that ended in disaster. Now, with the help of her apprentice Stacey, Ellie must try again to capture the elusive shape-shifting ghost before it can claim another soul as its own.

Genre: Adventure

Publish Date: April 8, 2014

Publisher: Edward W. Robertson

Seller: Edward Robertson


In the Breakers series, humanity faces not one apocalypse, but two: first a lethal pandemic, then a war against those who made the virus. This collection includes the first three books and is over 1000 pages (350,000 words) of post-apocalyptic survival. BREAKERS (Book 1) In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter. A plague tears across the world, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. Civilization comes to an abrupt stop. Just as the survivors begin to adapt to the aftermath, Walt learns the virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job–and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist. MELT DOWN (Book 2) In upstate Idaho, Ness Hook is run out of his mom's house by his bullying brother Shawn. In Redding, California, Tristan Carter is graduating college, but with no job and no prospects, she'll have to move back in with her parents. Then the world ends: first with a virus, then with an alien invasion. Ness and Shawn take to the mountains to fight a guerrilla against the attackers. In California, Tristan and Alden are taken prisoner. Separated from her brother, Tristan crosses the ruins of America to track him down. She will stop at nothing to get Alden back–but her fellow survivors prove even more dangerous than the monsters who broke the world. KNIFEPOINT (Book 3) Raina was just a girl when the plague came. She survived. Her parents didn't. Neither did the world. As civilization fell, she took to the ruins of Los Angeles, eating whatever she could catch. After two years alone, she's found and adopted by a fisherman and his wife. Their makeshift family lives a quiet life–until a man named Karslaw sails in from Catalina Island with an army of conquerors. Driven by visions of empire, he executes Raina's new father as a traitor and takes her mother captive. But Karslaw's people aren't the only ones vying for control of the ruined land. As violence wracks the city, Raina joins a rebellion against Karslaw's rule. She will stop at nothing to free her mother–and to have her revenge.

USA Today Bestselling Series! Join the club and get your Happy Ending! The Happy Endings Book Club Boxed Set includes three full-length novels: Hidden Hollywood, Inviting Trouble, and So Revealing. Book 1: Hidden Hollywood She’s on top… When superstar actress Claire Jordan researched her role for the Fierce Trilogy movies, she never expected the bond she feels with the author and her romance book club aka The Happy Endings Book Club. Soon Claire finds herself confessing her secret longing for a regular guy—no more egocentric wealthy players—and the book club is all too ready to help. In disguise as a regular girl, she’s all set for a date with book-club-approved Josh Campbell. He’s on top… Billionaire tech CEO Jake Campbell is weary of gold-digging women, especially the glamorous superficial types. So when his identical twin, Josh, calls in a favor, asking Jake to step in as him on a date, Jake figures one of Josh’s cute girl-next-door types might be just what he needs. One night of passion with the sweet girl next door leaves Jake wanting more, except she seems to have vanished. Sometimes a Happy Ending is just the beginning. Book 2: Inviting Trouble Madison Campbell has worshipped her older brother’s best friend, Parker Shaw, for as long as she can remember. So the night before he leaves for the Air Force, she decides he’s leaving town with her virginity. All she has to do is transform her tomboy self into a sexy woman with a bit of borrowed makeup and some creative fashion choices. The results? One drunken kiss that Park doesn’t even remember. Ten years later, no man has ever gotten close to her heart the way Park did. And now that he’s back, the very unfeminine Madison refuses to blow her second chance. But when her bold attempts to snag his attention (“Oops! Dropped my towel.”) fail miserably, she does something completely insane—she caves to a makeover from the meddling matchmaker in charge of The Happy Endings Book Club. Hey, Park, you want some of this? Madison is about to find out. Book 3: So Revealing The last thing Charlotte Vega needs is a cocky HOT stuntman like Ty Campbell in her life. But when he pulls the ultimate stunt—a sexy romantic gesture that ends with a charming invitation to a sunset dinner cruise—she finds him impossible to resist. Cue disaster.  Their rocky first date goes from bad to worse when his yacht (okay, it’s actually borrowed) gets stranded in deep mud. Turns out there’s nothing Ty can do but wait hours and hours for high tide with no power, no way to cook dinner, and a hangry sexy-as-hell woman.  But Ty is determined to salvage the date so he starts a game to pass the time. Only what Ty learns makes him realize he may have just botched a date with the perfect woman. How will he ever win her now?

With dangerous situations pulling them apart, how can they hold on to the women who have captured their hearts? This collection includes books 1 to 3 of the steamy, stirring and suspenseful Captured by Love series. Each book in this series can be enjoyed as a standalone. Book 1: The Unwilling Executive Lucas Renner never expected his biological father to start acknowledging him as a son and only heir. He bet the old man has ulterior motives that has nothing to do with wanting to develop a relationship with him. He refuses to make contact with the man who has rejected him all his life… until his father's message is hand-delivered by a blushing beauty who stirs him in the right places. Jade Tully thanks her lucky stars for her new role as the personal assistant to a wealthy CEO. Heaven knows she needs it. But she doesn't anticipate getting entangled in the personal conflict between her eccentric boss and his extremely hunky son–a man who rattles her poise and melts her heart. If she continues to do her boss's bidding, would she lose Lucas's trust and her chance to capture his heart? Book 2: The Unyielding Bachelor Rick Donnelly is under contract to remain unattached until his fifteen-year-old half-sister turns twenty-one. If he breaks the rules, not only will he have to hand over the management of his sister's substantial inheritance to his reckless stepmother, but he'll also have to transfer twenty percent ownership of his company to the untrustworthy woman. When the tempting Lexie Mead decides to knock down his heart's defenses, he finds himself in danger of breaking the contract's strict conditions–something he simply cannot afford to do. Lexie Mead has long had feelings for the hunky Rick Donnelly. Tired of being treated as just another one of his friends, she sets out to win his heart from prettier and more aggressive women admirers. But Rick has complications to deal with… and enemies who will do anything to see him fail. She doesn't want him to lose the things he's worked hard to keep. But how can they have a future together when she is forced to walk away and Rick can't ask her to stay? Book 3: The Undercover Playboy Detective Carter Garrett is required to play the role of a cash-strapped playboy to solve an important case. When Cassie Stephens starts working in the art gallery owned by a suspect, his growing feelings for her threaten to blow his cover. He mustn't let Cassie in on the secret. It could ruin his team's best chance at catching a group of criminals whose leader could very well be Cassie's new boss. But when Cassie gets embroiled in the case, his heart joins in on the action–a dangerous situation he cannot allow to persist. Cassie Stephens is ecstatic to land a high-paying job with perks anyone would envy. To her further delight, her new boss has business dealings with the charming Carter Garrett, her friend's hunky brother. But being aware of Carter's playboy ways, she orders herself not to dream of a future with him… until her new boss shares a secret about Carter she wasn't at all expecting. With everything seeming too good to be true, how far away are heartbreak and danger? *** Each book in the Captured by Love series can be read as a standalone.

SEASIDE DREAMS (Book 1) SEASIDE HEARTS (Book 2) SEASIDE SUNSETS (Book 3) IN SEASIDE DREAMS…  Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.    Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for–or even realized he was missing.  After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son–even Bella? *** IN SEASIDE HEARTS…  Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident–except when she's around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother's new cougar lifestyle, Jenna's giving up on Peter–and is ready to explore other men.  As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He's looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who's so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.  When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete's true feelings, and he's powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux–the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she's ever seen–or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?   *** IN SEASIDE SUNSETS…  Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.  For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother–and falling in love is not in his plans.  From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sensual, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie's business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie's life–and his heart–upside down.

Nicole McLaughlin Talks Sustainable Design, Life on Adidas’ Farm and the Permanence of Books

MISTAKEN IDENTITY: Three years into her consultancy with Reebok as a full-time graphic designer, Nicole McLaughlin personifies the Millennial spirit that sustainability doesn’t have to be boring.
Off the clock, the New Jersey creative repurposes vintage store and eBay finds into one-of-a-kind creations. The slides she made from a magenta JanSport backpack racked up nearly 22,000 likes a few weeks ago. And more recently a pair of pants salvaged from two Columbia Sportswear ski jackets were another winner with her followers. “I have two jobs and to be honest they influence each other,” McLaughlin said Tuesday.
Edging more toward concept designer status, she sees her role in both capacities as “how to reimagine something that exists.” The end result can be mules made from Wilson tennis balls, or an umbrella repurposed with The North Face puffer jackets. Nearing the end of a London-Paris-Amsterdam trip with Reebok, McLaughlin said she steers clear of reimagining products from Reebok competitors like Nike or Under Armour.
In New York at the end of last year for a three-month rotation at “The Farm,” the creative hub in Greenpoint run by Adidas, she worked with seven to 12 apparel, footwear, color and material designers from its Herzogenaurach, Germany, and

Publisher: Dark Shadow Publishing

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


USA Today Bestselling Author, Lexy Timms, brings you a billionaire with a past he pretends didn't exist and a private life he doesn't want to share with anyone—except with the one girl from his past that doesn't remember him. The Box set includes Bks #1-3 The SECRET of happiness is FREEDOM. The secret of freedom is COURAGE. The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past as better than what is was and the present worse than it actually is. Book 1 Billionaire CEO, SIMON DIESEL, owns one of the largest companies in the U.S. Little is known about him—he keeps his personal life out of the media despite their efforts to try to find out who the single, handsome billionaire is. He graduated out of Stanford with top honors, and while there invested in an online company that turned into a fortune. No one knows he was just a regular kid growing up and got into Stanford on a scholarship. He's determined to prove to himself that he can do it. He never expected that the girl he lost his virginity to would show up in his office, looking for a job. He also never anticipated that she wouldn't remember him. Now he has to hire her, just to prove he's the same kid from high school—just a whole lot richer. Book 2 SIMON DIESEL, self-made billionaire doesn't give up. That determination helped him make his money. It also pushed him to be the best, to win and to also except defeat. If you never lose, how will you know you're best? Except now the stakes are much higher than a few million dollars. Simon's willing to risk his heart over Heather—the one person who says she's not interested in him. He's got to somehow convince the girl he lost his virginity to years ago, that he's the perfect guy for her.  Can he free his heart? Can the secrets they've kept be pushed aside. Will they find happiness? Book 3 SIMON DIESEL, billionaire extraordinaire, is being played. Either by the woman he's hopelessly in love with, or by someone he trusts. That narrows the list down significantly. There's only a handful of people Simon trusts, so it shouldn't be that hard to find the perpetrator. However, how much is he willing to risk for his company? For his heart? Will falling in love with Heather a second time be second chance or payback for the heartbreak he caused her years ago? "The harder thing to do and the right thing to do is usually the same thing." Billionaire Secrets Series: The Secret Freedom Courage Trust Impulse

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


This is a collection of the first three titles in The Descent Series, which are gritty urban fantasy books about an exorcist, a witch, and their battles against the forces of Heaven and Hell. (Approx. 200,000 words total.) Books included: 1. Death's Hand 2. The Darkest Gate 3. Dark Union DEATH'S HAND Elise Kavanagh doesn't want to hunt demons anymore. It's been five years since she killed her last enemy, and life has been quiet since then. She went to college. Got a job, and then lost it. Made a friend or two. Lived a normal life. Now her former partner, a powerful witch named James Faulkner, wants Elise to fight one more time. The daughter of a coven member has been possessed, and Elise is the only exorcist nearby. Becoming a hero again would mean risking discovery by old enemies. But digging into the case reveals that it might already be too late–bodies are disappearing, demons slither through the night, and the cogs of apocalypse are beginning to turn. Some enemies aren't willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead… THE DARKEST GATE When Elise Kavanagh retired from demon hunting, she swore it would be permanent. But an attack from a powerful necromancer forced her back into the business, and now she's trying to balance her normal boyfriend and normal job with everything supernatural. Mr. Black is a demon hunter gone rogue. He's enslaving angels and stealing ethereal artifacts in pursuit of forbidden immortality, and an old grudge drives him to make his final stand in Elise's territory. Destroying her life and killing her friends isn't the goal, but it's a definite perk. A demonic overlord offers to join against Mr. Black and protect Elise's loved ones. All she needs to do is ally with the demons she's sworn to kill, at the cost of her morals–and maybe her immortal soul. But once she crosses that line, there's no turning back. Nothing is sacred when Heaven and Hell collide on Earth… DARK UNION Every fifty years, the most powerful ethereal and infernal beings convene on Earth to resolve conflicts with mediation by kopides–humans born to police relations between Heaven and Hell. They're meeting in Elise Kavanagh's territory this year, and she used to be the greatest kopis in the world. But she's not invited. An old friend, Lucas McIntyre, asks her to attend the summit in his place. But when she arrives, she discovers that a human faction called The Union has taken charge of the summit, and they're not playing nice. Worse yet, someone has killed a prominent Union member… and now they're demanding blood.

Publisher: Extra Fancy Books

Seller: Extra Fancy Books


USA Today Bestselling Series! The Clover Park Boxed Set includes three full-length novels: The Opposite of Wild, Daisy Does It All, and Bad Taste in Men. I wrote this series so one story picks up where the previous story left off, which makes it fun to binge read all together. Book 1: The Opposite of Wild Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take. Book 2: Daisy Does It All Exhausted single mom Daisy Garner is shocked when her blog about her perfect life with husband and baby brings a national talk show to her door. Amazing! Except she made the whole thing up. Enter Travis O'Hare, her fake husband, who's intent on becoming the real deal. Book 3: Bad Taste in Men Rachel Miller knows opening a café will make her struggling bookstore the place to hang out. But when the bank turns her down and her best friend Shane O’Hare steps in, the café suddenly has too much riding on it—her career, her best friend, and her heart. Don’t miss the next book in the series, Kissing Santa, with some big news from the O’Hare family!  THE CLOVER PARK SERIES  BOOK 1: The Opposite of Wild  BOOK 2: Daisy Does It All  BOOK 3: Bad Taste in Men  BOOK 4: Kissing Santa  BOOK 5: Restless Harmony  BOOK 6: Not My Romeo  BOOK 7: Rev Me Up BOOK 8: An Ambitious Engagement BOOK 9: Clutch Player BOOK 10: A Tempting Friendship Clover Park Bride: A Clover Park Short BOOK 11: A Valentine’s Day Gift BOOK 12: Maggie Meets Her Match Don’t miss my spinoff series, The Clover Park STUDS and Happy Endings Book Club, with some Clover Park favorites popping up too!

Sotheby’s Paris Preps Fourth Auction of Books From Pierre Bergé’s Personal Library

BERGE’S BOOKENDS: If reading is the key to enlightenment, Pierre Bergé sure had a lot of books to spark his intelligence.
Sotheby’s Paris will hold the fourth auction for a selection of books from Bergé’s personal collection on Dec. 14. Several choice lots are on view at Sotheby’s New York office through Saturday, and they illustrated the myriad interests of the late French business titan: botany, gardens, philosophy, activism and more. The upcoming auction is expected to drum up between 5 million euros and 6 million euros, according to a Sotheby’s spokeswoman.
Literature, the 19th century and music were among the areas of interest covered in prior sales, with the first auction having been held nearly three years ago.
The December sale includes such highlights as Bartholomeus Anglicus’ “Le Propriétaire des choses,” circa 1486. This complete copy of a major medieval encyclopedia is illustrated with 19 large woodcuts, all hand-colored at that time. Bidders will also find Gustave Flaubert’s “Salammbô” from 1863, a first edition that was inscribed by Flaubert to the composer Hector Berlioz.
Another reading relic is Leonhart Fuchs’ “De historia stirpium commentarii insignes” from 1542 that is considered to be the founding treatise of modern botany. The auction house will also

Filled with humor and heart, you'll love these beach reads! In READ, WRITE, LOVE at SEASIDE… Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller — that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized. Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract. In DREAMING at SEASIDE… Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene. Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for–or even realized he was missing. After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son–even Bella? In HEARTS at SEASIDE… Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.  As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.  When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

But Sam had died three years ago, on the night that had changed Lucy's life forever. The more Lucy looks for answers, the worse things get for her, as she makes an enemy of the richest, most popular boy in school, Tennyson Wilde. When the entire school is hit by a truth spell, it seems like the perfect chance to find out what Sam and Tennyson are hiding, but the closer Lucy gets, the more she realizes that the truth is stranger than she ever imagined. Book 2: The Tiny Curse Life isn't going so well for Lucy at elite boarding school, Amaris High. Classes are a struggle. She has no leads on the evil magic user. Sam's avoiding her, and the entire student population hates her. But someone hates her more than the rest. Rumors start spreading that lead to Lucy being bullied worse than ever before.

It's up to Rae to undo the darkness in her family's past and have a ray of hope for her future. Bk 2 – Dark Nebula   Nothing is as it seems anymore.   Leery from the horrifying incident at the end of her first year at Guilder, Rae's determined to learn more about her new tattoo.

Among her conflicts & enemies, it appears her father is reaching out from beyond the grave to ruin her life. With no one to trust, Rae doesn’t know who to turn to for help.  Has her destiny been written? Or will she become the one thing she hates the most-her father’s prodigy. Bk 3 – House of Cards Rae Kerrigan is 3months away from graduating from Guilder. She's now moonlighting as an operative for the Privy Council, a black ops division for British Intelligence. She’s given a mentor, Jennifer, who fights like a demon.Rae finds a strange maternal bond with her. At the same time, she finds a new friend when Devon disappoints her once again.   When the Privy Council ask for her help, she finds a friend, and a link, to the Xavier Knights–another agency similar to the PCs.    Will she lose herself in the confusions of the past and present? What will it mean for her future? Book 4 – Royal Tea The Queen of England has requested the help of the Privy Council. Someone is trying to kill her son’s fiancé. The HRH Prince plans to marry a commoner, and his bride has a secret no one knows but the Privy Council. She has a tatù. When the Privy Council turns to Rae for help, she can’t possibly say no; not even when they make Devon her partner for this assignment.    Rae would rather be anywhere but with Devon, especially since she believes her mother to be alive, despite the Privy Council’s assurances to the contrary. How can Rae find proof of life for her mother, come to terms with her feelings for Devon, and manage to save the Princess, all while dressed for tea?   When the enigma, the secrets and the skeletons in the closet begin to be exposed, can Rae handle the truth? Book 5 – Under Fire Rae Kerrigan is determined to find her mother. No amount of convincing from Devon, or the Privy Council, is going to make her believe her mother is not alive, and Rae will stop at nothing to find her.  Torn between friendship and loyalty, Rae must also choose between Luke and Devon. She can’t continue to deny, or fool herself, any longer. The heart wants what the heart wants.   Book 6 – End in Sight When life couldn't get anymore confusing, fate steps in and throws a curveball.

The first three full-length novels of the Immortal Vegas Series in one box set, plus an introductory novella. One Wilde Night Tarot-reading artifact hunter Sara Wilde has had her share of tough assignments, but this one just might take the cake. When her newest client hires her to steal a fertility idol from an Amazonian sex-and-death cult, she finds herself south of the equator and shoulder deep in true believers, while Rio de Janeiro gears up for the closing celebrations of Carnival. Stealing the idol is one thing, however. Keeping it is another. The arcane black market has drawn a host of cutthroat operatives and Sara's now in their sights. In a race across one of the most colorful cities in South America on its most famed night of the year, Sara must navigate cunning enemies, backstabbing allies, a fifty-foot wedding cake float and a new, sensually mysterious contact who may be friend or foe…and whose name she'll never know if she doesn't survive  One Wilde Night. Getting Wilde Using her well-worn Tarot deck, magical-artifacts hunter Sara Wilde can find anything–for a price. And the price had better be right, since she needs to finance her own personal mission to rescue several young psychics recently sold on the paranormal black market. Enter Sara's most mysterious client, the wickedly sexy Magician, with a job that could yield the ultimate payday. All she'll have to do is get behind Vatican walls… and steal the Devil himself. But play with the Devil and you're bound to get burned. From the twisting catacombs of Rome to the neon streets of Vegas, Sara confronts ancient enemies, powerful demigods, a roiling magical underworld about to explode… and immortal passions that might require the ultimate sacrifice. But oh, what a way to go. No matter how the cards play out, things are about to get  Wilde . Wilde Card All that glitters may not be gold. When an antique gold show comes to Vegas, artifact-hunter Sara Wilde's job is simple: to locate and liberate a set of relics rumored to give their bearers access to an ancient, incredible power. Yet within the Connected community, whispers of a war against magic draw every psychic, mystic, warlock, and witch to Sin City. The most powerful Connected also covet the infamous relics, but no one wants them more than Sara's client–the insufferably arrogant, criminally sensual, and endlessly evasive Magician. Sara's heist takes a turn for the trickier as the smoky-eyed specter from her past, Detective Brody Rooks, is assigned to investigate a break-in at the gold show, forcing her to confront the one man in Vegas she can't bluff. Worse, as the game changes anew, Sara is forced to turn to the one person she knows will manipulate, obfuscate and beguile to get whatever he craves. Only now, it seems, the Magician wants her. Sometimes, when the deck is stacked against you… you've got to play the  Wilde Card. Born To Be Wilde The past has a way of catching up with you. If there's one thing that Tarot-reading magical artifacts hunter Sara Wilde has never been able to track down, it's the truth about her own past. But now a powerful new threat to the psychic community will take Sara back to where it all began: the last job she worked with Officer Brody Rooks as "Psychic Teen Sariah," the job that destroyed her life and sent her on the run. Because the enemy she fled all those years ago has returned… with a posse of demons as his personal entourage. From the glittering chaos of Las Vegas to the Lost City of Atlantis, Sara must risk everything in a quest for vengeance that grows darker and more twisted with every step. To succeed she'll have to face the truth about her past, her abilities…and the impossible, unstoppable attraction she has to the Magician. A truth that will reveal her ultimate role in the war on magic. Life is full of surprises when you are  Born to Be Wilde.

In the Breakers series, humanity faces not one apocalypse, but two: first a lethal pandemic, then a war against those who made the virus. This collection includes the first three books and is over 1000 pages (350,000 words) of post-apocalyptic survival. BREAKERS (Book 1) In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter. A plague tears across the world, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. Civilization comes to an abrupt stop. Just as the survivors begin to adapt to the aftermath, Walt learns the virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job–and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist. MELT DOWN (Book 2) In upstate Idaho, Ness Hook is run out of his mom's house by his bullying brother Shawn. In Redding, California, Tristan Carter is graduating college, but with no job and no prospects, she'll have to move back in with her parents. Then the world ends: first with a virus, then with an alien invasion. Ness and Shawn take to the mountains to fight a guerrilla against the attackers. In California, Tristan and Alden are taken prisoner. Separated from her brother, Tristan crosses the ruins of America to track him down. She will stop at nothing to get Alden back–but her fellow survivors prove even more dangerous than the monsters who broke the world. KNIFEPOINT (Book 3) Raina was just a girl when the plague came. She survived. Her parents didn't. Neither did the world. As civilization fell, she took to the ruins of Los Angeles, eating whatever she could catch. After two years alone, she's found and adopted by a fisherman and his wife. Their makeshift family lives a quiet life–until a man named Karslaw sails in from Catalina Island with an army of conquerors. Driven by visions of empire, he executes Raina's new father as a traitor and takes her mother captive. But Karslaw's people aren't the only ones vying for control of the ruined land. As violence wracks the city, Raina joins a rebellion against Karslaw's rule. She will stop at nothing to free her mother–and to have her revenge.

In Drinking in America, Susan Cheever Puts the Bottle Back in the History Books

drinking in america

Any kid who made it through high school in the States probably knows something about the history of alcohol in America. Like the fact that General Ulysses S. Grant was a bit of a lush, or that the original settlers drank a lot of beer, or that Prohibition was a miserable failure that gave rise to bathtub gin and organized crime and the current scourge of speakeasy-inspired cocktail bars.

What you might not know is just how indelibly drinking—and opposition to drinking—has touched some of the most important moments in our country’s timeline. And for that we have Susan Cheever’s Drinking in America: Our Secret History, a look at how alcohol and alcoholism has played into 14 major chapters of American life. “The interesting truth, untaught in most schools and unacknowledged in most written history,” writes Cheever in her prologue, “is that a glass of beer, a bottle of rum, a keg of hard cider, a flask of whiskey, or even a dry martini was often the silent, powerful third party to many decisions that shaped the American story from the 17th century to the present.”

It’s Cheever’s goal to reinsert those tipples back into the history from which they’ve been excised. A perfect image for that mission: a Currier & Ives print from 1848 of George Washington standing in front of his troops with a glass of madeira in hand and a bottle of refills on the table. That engraving was later amended in the early years of the temperance movement, reimagined sans glass and with the bottle morphed into a tricorne hat.

From the moment the Mayflower Pilgrims, wanting for beer, decided to land on Cape Cod rather than their chartered destination in northern Virginia, our national obsession with alcohol was born, argues Cheever. “The decision to land illegally on Cape Cod had a huge effect on the later fate of the Pilgrims and the way in which the American character was formed. An illegal landing in a hostile place, partially caused by a shortage of beer, was not an auspicious beginning.”

Since then, our country’s tolerance for drinking and drunkenness has swung back and forth between periods of massive, near-ubiquitous indulgence—the 1830s and the mid-20th century were particularly sodden ages—and periods of crackdown. In the early 18th century, the American colonies became world famous for their drinking, both in terms of quantity—the average colonist, Cheever cites, spent a quarter of his income on booze—and in terms of prevalence: Everyone drank, from toddlers up. By 1820, drinking peaked, with the average American consuming more than triple what we do today.

But soon, that excess created a backlash: By 1834 there were roughly 5,000 nationwide temperance societies (most famously the Washingtonians), claiming 11 million members. With the rise of industrialization, the realization that drunk workers were not ideal, and the simultaneous rise of the women’s suffrage movement, national attitudes toward drinking began to shift. A century later the country had gone whole hog in the opposite direction, passing the 18th Amendment and the Volstead Act and launching Prohibition in 1920. It was an attempt to legislate against drinking that had the opposite effect, giving birth to another hedonistic era in the decades that followed. Our association of writing with alcoholism, a topic that has sparked several books, is a direct result of Prohibition, Cheever argues: an extrapolation based on a handful of examples of prominent hard-drinking, mid-century writers whose behavior was a reaction to their experience of that dry decade. But though Prohibition is largely regarded as a miserable failure, Cheever detects that the country may be swinging back in that direction again: Our increasingly health-and-longevity-focused society, she concludes, may soon lead to another misguided attempt to legislate against alcohol addiction.

Cheever uses these sociological and historical trends to create a loose architecture for her book, but she’s best when writing about the way alcohol—its abuse and its rejection—affected personal lives, and when she digs up fascinating historical nuggets. Like the fact that George Washington lost his first election to the Virginia assembly in 1755, and then won two years later after he delivered 144 gallons of booze to the polls. Or the fact that early physician and Declaration of Independence signer Benjamin Rush believed in both the disease theory of alcoholism and in the lurking danger of spontaneous combustion.

Alcoholism haunts American history, and has shaped it, for better or worse. The Adams line may have boasted two presidents, but the family was also plagued by what must have been the alcoholism gene: Two of John and Abigail’s sons and two of their grandsons died tragically in early alcohol-related deaths. Ulysses S. Grant is criticized for his drinking, but perhaps, Cheever speculates, it was his drunken bravado that actually led to his success in the Civil War. (Lincoln, a famous nondrinker, seemed to think so.) Meriwether Lewis, the man responsible for opening up the American West, descended into alcoholism upon his return from his famous expedition to find a water route to the Pacific. But the West, Cheever argues, was won at least in part by teetotalers, like Wyatt Earp, who had a terribly adverse reaction to alcohol and may have used his sobriety to his advantage in running gambling games, investing in silver mines, and shaping his own legacy in Hollywood.

More recently, Senator Joe McCarthy’s anti-communist reign of terror may have succeeded for the time it did only because the Internet wasn’t available to disseminate images or videos of his belligerent antics—including physically assaulting a Washington Post columnist in public—which were, at least in part, spurred on by the alcoholism that eventually killed him. (“Kiss my ass” was McCarthy’s response to a friend who pleaded with him to cut out the drinking mere months before he kicked the bucket.) The gunman who killed JFK may have had an unwitting assist from Kennedy’s secret-service agents, many of whom were hungover and slow to react after a late night of knocking back booze. And when, in 1969, a TWA flight was hijacked by members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and diverted to Syria, a very drunk Nixon, partying with friends in Florida, repeatedly instructed Henry Kissinger by phone to bomb the Syrian airport. In the morning, writes Cheever, the president had no memory of the incident. And many of us have no memory that Nixon, who started drinking only in adulthood and whose tolerance was unusually low, was likely an alcoholic.

It’s clear when I get on the phone with Cheever that she feels empathy for the people about whom she writes, even the ones—Nixon, McCarthy—whose behavior and politics have been judged harshly by the history books. After all, she’s been there herself. Drinking in America is something of a passion project for Cheever, who is a recovering alcoholic (she’s been sober more than 20 years), a memoirist about her addiction (Note Found in a Bottle), and the daughter of John Cheever, one of the 20th century’s more famous alcoholics. Cheever references her family history at various points in the book, something she initially intended to avoid but added at the insistence of her editor. Now she’s glad she did. “The history books that we revere, you never know who the writer is, where he—or Doris [Kearns Goodwin],” she jokes, “is coming from. They don’t reveal their own biases. History is deeply biased. If you don’t reveal your biases, it’s hard for me to connect in the same way. I want to know where the writer is standing.”

Read on for more from Cheever about the boozy tidbits that most surprised her, why alcohol gets written out of the history books, and whether the beer-swigging Pilgrims were severely dehydrated.

What’s the origin story of this project?
It’s a work in progress, the origin story. I’ve always been obsessed with American history, New England history. I wrote a book about Concord, Massachusetts. I wrote a biography of Louisa May Alcott. I wrote a biography of E. E. Cummings. And of course for decades I’ve been fascinated by addiction and recovery and how they work, starting with my own experience as a child. So those two things were going on separate tracks. And they just collided and made this explosion. As soon as I had this idea, I knew it had to be a book. There’s usually a long agonizing run-up to me deciding what to write about. Not this time. It was really like, Oh! Then I read Daniel Okrent’s wonderful book Last Call! The Rise and Fall of Prohibition. In his prologue there’s a little bit about drinking in American history. I emailed him, and he very sweetly sent me to Eric Burns, who had written a book called Spirits of America: A Social History of Alcohol, about American history and alcoholism, mostly focusing on the 19th century. I was off to the races.

Were you surprised to discover how little this history had been written about?
I was so surprised. The whole time I was writing, I was going, “What? Really?” Mark Twain said no discovery for the writer, no discovery for the reader. It was really a voyage of discovery. And I thought I knew a lot about these two subjects, but it turned out that the presence of alcohol, either from the point of view of temperance or from the point of view of drunkenness, has had a huge effect on our history. And I was constantly surprised. I thought I knew a lot about Abraham Lincoln. I know the difference between the first Inaugural Address and the second. I’ve read a million biographies. I had no idea that his mother had made him promise not to drink on her deathbed. I had no idea that he had lectured to the Washingtonians, that he was a temperance man. And I really had no idea that he was one of these rare individuals that didn’t drink and didn’t judge. When they came to him and complained that Ulysses S. Grant was drinking too much, Lincoln said, “Bring me some barrels of what he’s drinking so I can give it to my other generals.” He was such a pragmatist. I already knew I admired Lincoln, but that’s a rare person, who can not drink because of whatever’s happened in their family, what they’ve seen drinking can do, but also not judge people who do drink. What a guy!

What’s your theory on why alcoholism has been ignored by history? Is it because it was taken for granted and so never noted? Or is it a form of patriotism to ignore drinking, to avoid revealing the private behavior of our national heroes?
One of the rants that I have is how much of current events is controlled by drinking and it never gets reported. Donald Trump is a very good example. Donald Trump’s brother died of alcoholism. Donald Trump has talked about this quite a lot. Donald Trump as a result never drinks, hates drinking, won’t let his children drink. This is a big deal and it doesn’t get reported. Just the way that whatever was the real story with George [W.] Bush’s drinking didn’t get reported. I trained my kids to read the Times and go: Where is the drink in this story?

But the second part of the answer is that we like our history in a certain way. There’s a kind of gravitas that we really like. Because it isn’t just the drinking that gets left out: the sex gets left out, the food gets left out, the clothes get left out. All the things I’m interested in, they get left out. When I wrote American Bloomsbury, I was writing about Emerson and Thoreau, and Longfellow and the Alcotts, I included the women, and when you include the women you get the clothes and the food. I don’t know if you want to call it the underbelly of daily living. I don’t really care so much about the constitutional amendments, although I had to learn about them. I cared about what people were eating. Or drinking. Or who they were. I like to know about the texture of life. And I think when it comes to American history, a lot of that doesn’t get reported.

Like, for instance, Ken Burns’s The Roosevelts: no sex and no drinking. I mean, this is a family that’s been dogged by mental illness and alcoholism from the beginning. Not there! Eleanor’s love affair with Lorena Hickok. Not there! And people loved that. I don’t know whether it’s because we feel it’s disrespectful to admit that our leaders were human or what. But we do like history written in this very high-minded way.

Here’s an example: Until I read your book, I didn’t know that Richard Nixon was a drunk. I’m 31. Is that because I didn’t live through that history? Or is it not widely known?
I didn’t, either! I was surprised. I lived right through it. I thought he was creepy. I knew he was a crook. But I didn’t know he was a drunk. The first hint I had of it was in Frost/Nixon. There’s that scene where he drunk-dials. And I thought, Ohhh. But I didn’t really think twice about it until I was writing this book and people would say to me, Nixon, Nixon, Nixon. Then I read a bunch of biographies and there it was.

Do you think the reason we didn’t know that was because his alcoholism wasn’t typical? He seemed high-functioning?
It wasn’t high-functioning when it wasn’t. But yes. Someone was asking what is the answer to our addiction and alcohol problem. The answer is education. We’re not very well educated about the different forms alcoholism can take. We still have a tendency to think of it as somebody who drinks too much too often. Nixon drank too much too often, but for him too much was not very much. And he didn’t drink at all until he was an adult. Alcoholism is actually mysterious. It’s clearly genetic. On the other hand, it’s not as if it’s sitting right there in front of us and we’re not understanding it. It’s hard to understand.

But with Nixon: Yes, his alcoholism looked very different. Well, actually, it looked a lot like Ulysses S. Grant’s alcoholism. But it looked different from William Faulkner’s alcoholism. And I think that made it harder to believe or harder to pick up. But I do think that we actually have a public-health crisis when it comes to education about addiction in this country. And there’s still not the understanding of it that we need to have in order to effectively deal with it. But I also think that the people who understand alcoholism the best are the Alcoholics Anonymous people. And they’re like: You’re an alcoholic if you say you are. Meaning, it’s pretty mysterious who’s an alcoholic and who’s not. They say it’s a self-diagnosed disease. That’s a fairly aggravating definition.

You said that you’re interested in studying women’s lives to get at the texture of history. But this is mostly a book about men. Did you choose to focus on men because you wanted to get at the most seminal events in American history, and that’s who was involved? Or was it just too difficult to find examples of women and alcoholism throughout American history? Maybe that’s your next book?
I think both of those things are true. In other words: They don’t write a lot about drinking men; they certainly don’t write about drinking women. But in the temperance part of the book, there are a lot of women, the way that the temperance movement and women’s suffrage came to the surface together. I was trying to think of essays to write, and it occurred to me I could have done more with Abigail Adams. This was a woman who knew she had brought alcoholism into the family. Can you imagine?

Did she feel guilt?
I don’t know if she felt guilt or fear. She wrote about it very obliquely. But she and her sisters knew their brother was an alcoholic who died of it. And she saw two of her sons die of it and two of her grandsons. There wasn’t anybody dying of it in the Adams line before she married John Adams. She didn’t say, “I brought this into my own family and caused tremendous heartbreak because I’m a carrier.” But I wonder what that must have been like. I always liked her, but it really made me have so much respect for her. To have one child die of alcoholism is an unimaginable tragedy. To have two? And two grandchildren?

And John Quincy Adams—ever since that, he acted like he drank sulfuric acid. Well, no wonder? Two brothers, two sons. And they didn’t know what it was. They called it the scourge. They knew it was bad. But they didn’t really understand even as well as we do now.

I wished there were more women. I wasn’t so aware until I finished. One of my favorite books that I’ve written was American Bloomsbury, and the whole formula for that book was that I took Concord, Massachusetts, in the 19th century and added the women. The revelation for me was when I found that Louisa May Alcott had lived across the street from Emerson, and had based Laurie [in Little Women] on Henry David Thoreau. I didn’t even realize they were in the same town. I had studied Emerson, I had studied Thoreau. Nobody had ever told me Louisa May Alcott was the little babysitter girl. And Margaret Fuller. The women in that equation were tremendously powerful and interesting. But with this book it was hard to find women.

There were women who came into the chapter about alcoholic writers, which is an interesting chapter for a lot of reasons. It felt to me sort of like a little self-contained section, where you focused on culture instead of politics and sociology. Why?
You make a good point. That didn’t occur to me. And you’re absolutely right. I just was plowing along, and Olivia Laing’s book The Trip to Echo Spring: On Writers and Drinking came out. I read  it and thought, Wait a minute, this isn’t right. Because I was deep in the 19th century at this point. I thought, Wait a minute, [the equation of writers with alcoholism] didn’t start until the 1930s. Like everybody who writes that book—and there are many—they  all use the same five writers, because that’s all there are. It’s not happening now. Our writers now are not drunks. I just went, “Wow! This whole myth about writing and drinking is actually restricted to two generations.” And I got so excited about that. But you’re right, I didn’t notice that it completely changed the tone of the book—that it wasn’t about politics, that it was about culture. Sorry!

No, I think it’s fascinating.
I mean, I was so interested. Because everybody thinks it’s all writers who drink. But in fact no writers drink now. You can’t name me one! And it was the same in the 1800s. Maybe Poe. But Emerson, Thoreau, Longfellow, Dickinson? None, zero, not even a ghost of a problem. Whitman was a temperance guy. The Alcotts, they just didn’t drink. It wasn’t on their menu, so to speak. I got very excited. Because for obvious reasons I don’t like the idea that writers have to drink. As a writer who doesn’t drink, I just got very excited about it and tore through the chapter without noticing that it doesn’t really belong in the book. Maybe no one else will notice?

Well, I wouldn’t say it doesn’t belong in the book. I would just say, to me, it felt meaningful that you wanted to include it. It’s not the only place that you reference your family history, your father’s history. You weave that throughout. Did you learn anything about your family that you didn’t already know writing about them here?
I pretty much had it. I’ve been criticized a lot for writing about myself and my family when, according to critics, it wasn’t necessary. So my original intention was not to put any of us in this book at all. But my editor, I think very wisely, said we need a Cheever thread. And it’s true that when I read a history book, I want to know who the writer is. So I did put in a Cheever thread. History is not monolithic; it’s as personal as memoir. It really is. I’m reading [David] McCullough’s Wright brothers book, and it’s fascinating, but it’s all about the engineering. That’s not the book I would have written. It’s great that he wrote  the book he wrote. But I have to guess about his fascination with engineering and his lack of interest in food, sex, and drinking. I don’t want to guess. I like to have a sense of who the writer is. I want to say to the reader: “This is who I am. This is a recovering alcoholic writing about alcoholism. You might need to know that.”

Before I let you go, can I ask you a question that’s been bugging me? You write about how the Mayflower Pilgrims drank beer instead of water, because drinking water was far more dangerous. But were they just horribly dehydrated at all times? How do you survive on no water?
Well, it’s very hard. I don’t think it’s good for you. But If you can’t drink the water . . . You’re just thirsty all the time. And it was 6 percent beer. I thought maybe it was 2 percent, maybe it was near beer, right? Nuh-uh. It was real beer. But they didn’t survive; half of them died that first winter. Half! The starving time. So it’s not a good recipe for good health.

‘Heather Has Two Mommies’ Author On The Struggle To Publish Gay Books

As we reflect on milestones made within the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community during October’s LGBT history month, HuffPost Live spoke with Lesléa Newman, the author of the groundbreaking 1989 children’s book Heather Has Two Mommies.

As the first lesbian-themed children’s book published, getting it to readers was a challenge. Newman explained to host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani earlier this week that getting the book published was an entirely grassroots effort because nobody was willing to endorse it. She said the reception to its publishing was mixed — some “thrilled,” some “horrified.”

“Libraries were reporting that the book was either stolen or returned with its pages glued shut,” Newman recalled. “There was one library that found the book in the bathroom defecated upon. There were politicians who used the book for their own personal agenda. So all kinds of interesting things were happening during that time.” 

Finding publishers interested in picture books with a gay agenda is “still a struggle,” Newman said. But in 2008, she was finally approached to write a baby book featuring gay parents. 

“I was really pleased that the publishing world was coming to me after I had struggled so hard to put Heather out there,” Newman said. “But obviously, you know, a lot has happened especially in the marriage equality movement that’s made the world a better place, I think, for all of us and all our families.”

Manolo Blahnik Books First-ever Personal Appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue

SHOE IN: Manolo Blahnik will make his first-ever personal appearance at a Saks Fifth Avenue store next month. On Sept. 10 the stiletto-maker will appear within his Saks shop-in-shop boutique — located on the retailer’s “10022” shoe floor — for a signing.
From 5 to 7 p.m., shoppers who purchase a new pair of Blahniks can have their shoes signed by the footwear impresario.
Blahnik’s Saks shop-in-shop — his first-ever permanent retail fixture at a Saks store — opened within the retailer’s Manhattan flagship location earlier this month.
“New York is a very important city for me, so seeing this shop coming to life means a lot…It is very exciting to meet new faces and see the usual customers again. I really enjoy communicating with them; it’s always great to hear their experiences and feedback in first person,” Blahnik said of the event.

26 Books Every ‘Spiritual But Not Religious’ Seeker Should Read

“There are things you can’t reach. But

you can reach out to them, and all day long.

The wind, the bird flying away. The idea of God.

And it can keep you as busy as anything else, and happier.”

— “Where Does The Temple Begin, Where Does It End?,” by Mary Oliver

A growing number of Americans — young people especially – are unaffiliated with any organized religion. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t spiritual. There’s always a part of the soul that’s yearning for something greater, seeking answers to life’s biggest questions: What is sacred? Why are we here? How should we live? 

HuffPost Religion has created a book list for these spiritual seekers. Nearly every genre is represented here, from memoirs to mysteries. Some books might introduce you to faiths you’ve never experienced before. Others will challenge you to think about what it really means to be alive. 

Whether you’ve left your childhood faith, you’re just starting to question or you’ve happily settled into a permanent state of open-mindedness on the subject of God or gods, these are the books for you.

The Real Donald: Excerpts From Trump’s Books On Women, Marriage, Sex And More

Before he jumped into the presidential race and the media frenzy that comes with it, real estate mogul Donald Trump preferred to communicate with the American people via a more intimate medium — the simple written word.

The Huffington Post has reviewed nearly a dozen books by and/or about Trump, including one by John O’Donnell, a former executive in Trump’s business empire, and one by Tim O’Brien, a longtime journalist and former HuffPost editor. Reading through these works, which go back a full 25 years, one gets a better sense of the businessman’s macho persona, his taste for extravagance, his views about women and his rise to the top of the New York City social scene. All quotes are Trump’s words except where noted otherwise.

On marriage

“A good marriage is like negotiating an important deal: You have to consider all the factors, thoughtfully and thoroughly. If you were investing a large part of yourself and your fortune into a venture, believe me, you’d make sure you thought about it for a long time first. That’s how I see marriage. It’s serious, and it’s important. I don’t approach it any more haphazardly than I do a very important deal. In fact, considering the amount of deals I’ve made compared to the number of marriages I’ve had, I’d say I’m quite cautious about marriage. You should be, too.” (Think Like A Billionaire, Donald Trump with Meredith McIver, 2005)

*

“For a man to be successful he needs support at home, just like my father had from my mother, not someone who is always griping and bitching. When a man has to endure a woman who is not supportive and complains constantly about his not being home enough or not being attentive enough, he will not be very successful unless he is unable to cut the cord.” (The Art of the Comeback, Donald Trump with Kate Bohner, 1997)

“If he doesn’t lose the ballbreaker, his career will go nowhere.” (The Art of the Comeback

On prenuptial agreements

“There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else.” (The Art of the Comeback)

On women

“I was always of the opinion that aggression, sex drive, and everything that goes along with it was on the man’s part of the table, not the woman’s. As I grew older and witnessed life firsthand from a front-row seat at the great clubs, social events, and parties of the world — I have seen just about everything — I began to realize that women are far stronger than men. Their sex drive makes us look like babies. Some women try to portray themselves as being of the weaker sex, but don’t believe it for a minute.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“I remember attending a magnificent dinner being given by one of the most admired people in the world. I was seated next to a lady of great social pedigree and wealth. Her husband was sitting on the other side of the table, and we were having a very nice but extremely straight conversation. All of a sudden I felt her hand on my knee, then on my leg. She started petting me in all different ways. I looked at her and asked, ‘Is everything alright?’ I didn’t want to make a scene in a ballroom full of five hundred VIPs. The amazing part about her was who she was — one of the biggest of the big. She then asked me to dance, and I accepted. While we were dancing she became very aggressive, and I said, ‘Look, we have a problem. Your husband is sitting at that table, and so is my wife.’

‘Donald,’ she said, ‘I don’t care. I just don’t care. I have to have you, and I have to have you now.’ I told her that I’d call her, but she had to stop the behavior immediately. She made me promise, and I did. When I called I just called to say hello, and that was the end of that. But the level of aggression was unbelievable.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“One woman, who was socially prominent, was getting married, and I had bumped into her on Fifth Avenue while she was exchanging wedding gifts. I had my limousine nearby, and she asked if I could give her a ride back to her apartment on Park Avenue. I said absolutely, not even suspecting that within five seconds after the door closed she would be jumping on top of me wanting to get screwed. I said, ‘You’re getting married next week, and I’m going to your wedding.’

‘I don’t really care,’ she said. ‘ I never liked him that much anyway, and you know that.’ I was really in a quandary, because she is a truly great-looking and sexy woman.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“There’s nothing I love more than women, but they’re really a lot different than portrayed. They are far worse than men, far more aggressive, and boy, can they be smart.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“I don’t know why, but I seem to bring out either the best or worst in women.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“I love women. They’ve come into my life. They’ve gone out of my life. Even those who have exited somewhat ungracefully still have a place in my heart.” (The Art of the Comeback)

*

“She’s just a woman. She can’t take the business.” (As quoted in Trumped!, John R. O’Donnell with James Rutherford, 1991)

*

“I don’t need this, some woman crying. I need somebody strong in here to take care of this place.” (Trumped!)

*

“She is really something else. God, what a body she has!… She’s a beautiful girl. Just a beautiful girl. Fucking gorgeous. An incredible body, just an incredible body. The girl is so physically fit. Beautiful face. A beautiful, beautiful girl.” (Trumped!)

*

“It’s all about the hunt and once you get it, it loses some of its energy. I think competitive, successful men feel that way about women.” (As quoted in TrumpNation, Timothy L. O’Brien, 2005)

“Sam Jackson should have gotten the Oscar for [‘Pulp Fiction’], not Travolta,” Donald mused. “My favorite part is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up: ‘Tell that bitch to be cool! Say: “Bitch be cool!”’ I love those lines.” (O’Brien, writing in TrumpNation)

*

“I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing. There was a great softness to Ivana, and she still has that softness, but during this period of time, she became an executive, not a wife… You know, I don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist, but when I come home and dinner’s not ready, I’ll go through the roof, okay?” (TrumpNation)

*

“You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” (TrumpNation)

On beauty pageants

“Nobody cares about the talent. There’s only one talent you care about, and that’s the look talent. You don’t give a shit if a girl can play a violin like the greatest violinist in the world. You want to know what does she look like.” (TrumpNation

On publicity

“Publicity is important because it creates interest in my hotels, residential buildings, and other projects. But sometimes it gets out of hand, and my every move is scrutinized by the press to the point of absurdity… The Trump Organization is in some ways like the Disney Company: Image means a great deal to me. If people don’t associate my name with quality and success, I’ve got serious problems.” (Surviving at the Top, Donald Trump with Charles Leerhsen, 1990)

On his youth

“I was especially carefree. I had a comfortable little studio apartment on Third Avenue in the city, and I maintained a lifestyle that was fairly commonplace then but that now, in an age when people are worried about dying from sex, is hard even to imagine. I didn’t drink or take drugs, as far as stimulants go, I’ve yet to have my first cup of coffee. But I was out four or five nights a week, usually with a different woman each time, and I was enjoying myself immensely.

Wild things happened all the time back then, and nobody thought very much of it. For instance, one day a friend called me at the office and said he needed to set up a date for a certain well-known married woman. This woman was visiting from out of town and was, he said — using a typical swinging-seventies expression — ‘really hot.’

I had a girlfriend at that time, and so did he, but I knew a guy named Ben who was very worldly-wise. Ben, I was sure, could serve as this woman’s escort and be discreet about it… She turned out to be the wife of a man who was then the prime minister of a major country. I’d heard stories about this lady, but I never thought much of them until that night. We met at the house of the friend who’d phoned me. After we’d all chatted for a while in the living room, the four of us who already knew each other drifted out to the kitchen, leaving Ben and Madame X in the living room to get better acquainted. Which they did. In fact, when we drifted back in, about ten minutes later, she and Ben were involved in an incredibly torrid scene on the couch. I remember standing there and thinking to myself, ‘Well, Donald, you’re not in Queens anymore.'” (Surviving at the Top)

On Michael Jackson’s sex life

“Somehow, Michael feels comfortable with me. I asked him how he was doing, and we started talking about his life, including his sex life. I was somewhat surprised when Michael told me he had a new girlfriend. I congratulated him and asked, ‘Who is it?’ He was very shy and looked down into his napkin, then put the napkin over his face and said, ‘Trump, Trump, I don’t want to talk about it, I’m so embarrassed.’ I chided him. ‘Come on, Michael,’ I said, ‘tell me who your new girlfriend is.’ When he finally looked up, he said that it was a girl named Lisa Marie.” (The Art of the Comeback)

On onerous litigation

“Litigation in the United States has gotten totally out of control. It has actually become an accepted business practice for people to use the court’s time, money, and energy in order to effect deals, break up deals, and receive money unjustly. I know people who virtually can’t function without starting a lawsuit, thinking that this will give them the upper hand in even the most simple of negotiations. Politicians ought to be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating this ridiculous situation. Court systems have become backlogged for years with superfluous cases.” (The Art of the Comeback)

On germaphobia

“I happen to be a clean-hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as often as possible. Recent medical reports have come out saying that colds and various other ailments are spread through the act of shaking hands. I have no doubt about this.

Almost nothing bothers me more than sitting down for dinner at a beautiful restaurant and having a man you’ve just seen leaving the men’s room, perhaps not even having washed his hands, spot you and run over to your table with a warm and friendly face, hand outstretched. You have a decision to make. Do you shake this total stranger’s hand, or do you insult him by saying that you would rather not? I have done both, and nothing works. If you shake his hand, you then get up to rewash your hands and inevitably somebody else comes over to you to shake hands. If you don’t shake his hand, he walks away with a long face, totally insulted, and bemoans for the rest of his life how that bastard Donald Trump would not shake his hand.” (The Art of the Comeback)

On his fear of AIDS

“It was painfully obvious how ill at ease he was in public situations. In part, I think it was really beyond his control. He was preoccupied by a fear of communicable disease, especially AIDS. Sometimes he’d joke about it, but he went so far as to warn a high-ranking Trump’s Castle publicist to avoid the Jacuzzi in the luxury health spa there because he considered it a potential breeding ground for the deadly virus.” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

*

“What went on in Studio 54 will never, ever happen again. First of all, you didn’t have AIDS. You didn’t have the problems you have now. I saw things happening there that to this day I have never seen again. I would watch supermodels getting screwed, well-known supermodels getting screwed on a bench in the middle of the room. There were seven of them and each one was getting screwed by a different guy. This was in the middle of the room. Stuff that couldn’t happen today because of problems of death.” (TrumpNation)

On his “tremendous fear of baldness”

“For Donald, image and reality were always in conflict. The Windsor knot in his tie was always pulled tight to his throat. At the same time, he let his sand-colored hair dip down to his eyes and curl over his ears and collar, and he plastered it on the sides with a greasy gel that he believed fostered hair growth. He had a tremendous fear of baldness. He swept his hair across the front of his head like a man trying to hide a thinning patch. He once observed to Mark that he considered baldness a sign of weakness. He gave a tube of the gel he used to Mark, warning him, ‘The worst thing a man can do is go bald. Never let yourself go bald,’ as if nature could be circumvented through sheer force of will.” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

On boxer Mike Tyson

“Tyson sat down in Donald’s corner office hundreds of feet above Fifth Avenue and the two men chatted for about fifteen minutes before the boxer got to the point. Donald recalled their conversation in detail.

‘Mr. Trump, could I ask you a question?’ Tyson asked.

‘Whatever you want, Mike,’ Donald responded.

‘Are you fucking my wife?’

‘What?’

‘Are you fucking my wife? Everyone’s telling me that you’re fucking my wife.’

Tyson then pulled out a copy of a Vogue magazine that featured a picture of Ms. [Robin] Givens wearing a Trump Princess hat from Donald’s yacht.

‘Everyone’s telling me that you’re fucking my wife and I think you’re fucking my wife,’ Tyson said.

‘Mike, let me tell you something: I never ever even thought about it. And I heard those rumors and they’re disgusting. In fact, I called you a couple of times to tell you that I heard those rumors and it pisses me off. And I never, ever even thought about it. She’s your wife, she’s with you, she’s loyal to you, and it’s total bullshit.’” (O’Brien, writing in TrumpNation)

On dealing with setbacks

“Finally, the ceiling was installed. One Saturday, Donald went up to have a look, accompanied by Steve, some of our hotel executives and a group of contractors. Donald looked up at the ceiling as if it was the first time he had seen it; then he looked at Steve. ‘What the fuck is this?’ he said. ‘Who said to make this ceiling so low?’

‘You knew about this, Donald,’ Steve replied. ‘We talked about it, if you remember, and the plans –‘

Suddenly Donald leaped up and punched his fist through the tile. Then he turned on Steve in a rage. ‘You cocksucker! Motherfucker! Where the fuck were you? Where was your fucking head?'” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

*

“’Where’s my wife? Get Ivana down here,’ he said. When she arrived, Donald turned on her fiercely. ‘How could you close one of my tables on the busiest fucking night of the year!’ he shouted. ‘I can’t believe you could be so stupid. Do you know how much money I’m losing here? Stupid! You’re costing me a fortune! This is the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever seen!’” (O’Donnell, writing in Trumped!)

Arrested for Library Books

My father had a phenomenal ability to remain calm, especially having so many children in the house. Screaming and fights to the death were usually stopped easily by a quiet word from him, such as “OK guys, that’s about enough.” That was enough to stop anything going on, unlike mother who could be screaming louder and higher than dogs could hear, which did nothing. A quiet word from Daddy would. He rarely raised his voice. Except once.

2015-07-07-1436292595-9024916-bookfb.jpg

We were all at the beach except for Daddy. We were in the house down on St. Andrew’s Bay, playing, swimming, just having a fine time. I was in the house, and the phone rang.

“Hello.”

“Hello son, it’s Dad.”

I started out for a nice conversation with him and was summarily cut off.

“Please put your mother on the line… Now please,” he said in a quiet even tone.

He was much more curt than I had ever heard.

“Mama, Daddy’s on the phone”

Mama came to the phone, with a big smile on her face.

“Hello Sweetheart, how are you?

She started to listen and her smile began to fade. As she continued to listen, her smile turned into thin, pursed lips. Then they pressed together as her teeth were biting them from inside.

“Yes. About 30 minutes. Right, no problem.”

Mom got into gear. “Children, get everything, I don’t care if it’s wet, dry, throw it into bags, whatever you can find, we have to leave in 30 minutes to be back in Montgomery.”

We started asking questions and she said she would tell us later and just get going.

Once we had gotten everything in the car (it looked like we had loaded it with a pitchfork), we took off. Mother usually drove the speed limit. Not that day.

It seems that Daddy was having a nice Saturday. He loved to work in the yard, mow, tend the roses and he got to do it without all of us!

As he wheeled the mower around the edge of the yard, he noticed City of Montgomery Police cars pull up. He thought something must be wrong at the Coca-Cola Plant and they were coming to tell him. He shut off the mower, pushed the sweatband off of his forehead and walked over to the officers.

One spoke immediately. “Are you Gilbert William Hitchcock?” Daddy replied that he was. “May we please see your identification?” He happened to have his wallet in his pants and showed them his driver’s license.

“Mr. Hitchcock, you are under arrest. Anything you say may be used against you.” And they completed his Miranda Rights.

After they finished, Daddy asked them what in the world this was about.

“Mr. Hitchcock, our records show that you have 28 library books checked out in your name some of which are over five years overdue.”

Daddy thought a minute. “Library books? But I don’t even have a card.”

“The cards are in your name. Mr. Hitchcock, but it was actually your wife and children who took out the books.”

Daddy asked if he could make his one phone call and they said yes. He called the Chief of Police who happened to be one of his best friends. As Chief Swindall tried to restrain his laughter when Daddy told him the story, he asked to speak to the officers. Daddy could hear their end of the conversation.

“Well yes sir, you are right, he does look like a dangerous criminal, but I agree that this is a low charge and we can release him here on his own recognizance as per your authority. Yes Sir. Yes Sir. Thank you Sir.”

The policemen informed Daddy that he was not under arrest, but would need to appear in court on “X” date to handle this.

About three hours later, our Ford LTD Wagon pulled into the driveway. Daddy immediately presented us with a list of the books that were outstanding.

“I first want ALL of the library cards brought to me, including yours he said,” pointing to mother. “Then I want this house turned upside down until they are all found.” I noticed that he didn’t even grin.

We found the books and were spared Mother’s wrath as she herself had four books outstanding. Daddy returned the books, paid the fine, cancelled Christmas that year, went to court, and all was fine.

Three months later, two City of Montgomery cars pulled up, the officers got out of their car and rang the doorbell. “Are you Gilbert William…”

Somehow the warrant had not been expunged from the system, Daddy again called Chief Swindall, was read his rights, had to go BACK to court where they apologized for their error.

We were not allowed to even read the labels on cans for two years.
