From the New York Times bestselling author of “Firebird” comes a richly detailed historical drama full of good Gothic romance, suspense and smartly dressed people.

As the daughter of a prosperous tailor in 1860’s London, Veda Grenfell has grown up accustomed to elegance and style. When a fever leaves her deaf at the age of sixteen, she turns for solace to the familiar world of her father’s workshop. Veda has inherited her father’s extraordinary talent, and she is not content to hide demurely in the back room whipping stitches. Defying Victorian notions of propriety, she establishes herself as a tailor to the young, fashionable sporting set of English nobility. Yet, beneath her impeccable dress and irreproachable manners beats a heart longing for the love of a man and a family of her own.

When an ambitious Italian tailor extends an offer of marriage, Veda’s keen intuition leads her to reject him, with disastrous consequences. Her situation is even more complicated by her growing attachment to Harry Breadalbane, a young viscount with a fascination for all things modern and a restless need to exert his energy on more than horse-racing and women.

As their complicity deepens, unsettling rumors begin to circulate about Harry’s family and his brutally powerful father, the reclusive Earl of Hambledon. When passion turns to betrayal, Veda abandons her beloved Savile Row and sets off on a treacherous journey to reclaim her rights – a journey that will bring her face to face with the darkly destructive forces that lurk at the depths of the human heart.

Graham’s elegant prose paints a deeply human portrait of a girl both willful and confused, vulnerable and yet fiercely courageous. The young narrator’s chronicle of her determination to seize for herself those dreams others try to deny her, render her character unforgettable and illuminate a world rarely imagined in literature.

When it comes to Christmas presents, it’s not the size that matters . . .
A sparkling, entertaining story that will leave you laughing and in the holiday mood.

It’s December 21st, 1981 in New York City, and the holidays are approaching fast. But up-and-coming book editor Julia Nash isn’t too busy to notice that her boyfriend has only put one small gift under the tree. At least Jack has an excuse: as the lead guitarist of a famous British rock band, he is deep into rehearsals for their upcoming tour. But Julia was hoping for something a little more meaningful than the pair of mittens she can’t resist taking a peek at.

Julia tries to ignore her friends egging her on about what Jack might have planned. But even with the distractions of a demanding boss, a steamy snowball fight, a baking flop involving rum balls, and a blizzard that shuts down the entire city, the question still torments her: Is a pair of gloves—the kind of thing you’d give to a friend—the only gift Jack is giving her? And if so, what does that say about their relationship?

Brimming with laughter and an enticing dash of romantic spice, with vivid characters that reviewers have called “engaging” and “irresistible”, Dancing with Mistletoe puts you in the mood to kiss someone you love under a sprig of green.
Also included is a sneak peek at Keep Dancing, the hilarious and captivating new novel about Jack and Julia, to be published in Spring 2015.

Beirut, 1982. Conrad Prosser is a skilled Arabist, expert agent handler, prolific intelligence reporter, and a connoisseur of Beirut’s underground nightlife. But, as his two-year tour at the U.S. Embassy nears its end, Prosser’s intelligence career is in jeopardy because he has not recruited an agent while in Lebanon, a sine qua non requirement for promotion.

Surveying his many contacts, Prosser selects an attractive Lebanese doctoral student and her idealistic brother as candidates for development. At the same time, he holds clandestine meetings by day and night with his string of Lebanese and Palestinian agents, pressing them to discover who is behind the latest wave of car bombings that has terrorized Muslim West Beirut. But when one of his agents supplies information used to capture a Syrian-backed bombing team, Prosser sets off a cycle of retaliation that threatens more than his career and cherished way of life.

At first denying, then later concealing, apparent attempts on his life, Prosser sets out to save both his job and his skin, exploiting his agents, his best friend, a former lover, his new girlfriend and her enigmatic brother. In doing so, he puts their lives at risk and discovers too late the effect of his heedless actions.

SARA’S GAME

Two years ago, Sara’s husband left for the gym one morning…and never came back. His car was found. He wasn’t. Unbelievably, the police report said, “No foul play suspected.” There were a few unreliable sightings over the following months, but little else.

Now, on the last day before summer break, her three children have gone missing from their schools, all at the same time.

And the note under her windshield wiper asks one foreboding question: Are you ready to play the game?

SARA’S PAST

This is no game.

Eighteen months after Sara’s terrifying encounter with a demented kidnapper, life has finally returned to normal. Almost. Her memories of the game still haunt her dreams, and every day society appears to go a little bit crazier. Around the world, from London to Rio to Moscow, a small terrorist group known as The Clan creates chaos and unrest. Who are they, and why are all their targets connected?

All Sara wants is to live a safe, quiet life with her children.

On a damp fall morning, however, Detective Emerson Barker shocks Sara with news that’s both chilling and unthinkable, plunging her family headlong into another frightening fight for survival…”You’re the next target.”

SARA’S FEAR

Bolstered by a newfound fortune, Sara Winthrop is finally able to escape the horrific nature of her past. She’s moved her family three thousand miles, from the bustling city of Portland to the rolling Appalachians of southwest Virginia. Life is calm, the children are thriving, and she’s protected inside her rural fortress.

Or so she thinks. She soon discovers that the answers are never so easy. The illusion of security doesn’t stand a chance against two dangerous enemies with money, motivation, and an unquenchable desire for revenge.

Aided by the help of new friends and forced to the edge of extremes, Sara must find a way to win at all costs, or die trying.

Category: Historical Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Becoming Lola is the true story of an extraordinary woman who resolutely defied the conventions of her day, determined to wring every drop of excitement from life and love.

Born in 1821 in modest circumstances, Eliza Gilbert, as she then was, became the nineteenth century’s most notorious adventuress.

At sixteen, she ruined herself in the eyes of society when, to avoid an abhorrent arranged marriage, she ran away with one of her mother’s admirers. He married her, but she abandoned any chance of forgiveness when she refused to be trapped in an unhappy union and left him.

Many women would have vanished into increasingly desperate obscurity, but Eliza was no ordinary woman. She reinvented herself as Lola Montez, a Spanish aristocrat fallen on hard times. In that guise, she blazed like a firecracker through the courts of Europe and beyond, reputedly taking hundreds of lovers, including King Ludwig of Bavaria and the composer, Franz Liszt. She was a dancer, an actress, an intrepid traveller and, by the time of her early death, the second most famous woman in the world after Queen Victoria.

Paper Phoenix, by Michaela Thompson, is regularly $2.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars based on 153 customer reviews.

Category: Mystery

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

First comes divorce, then comes murder…

…or at least sweet thoughts of murder. Maggie Longstreet has plenty of them after slimy, ambitious Richard trades her in for a more recent model. She’s so depressed she can barely get out of bed when Larry Hawkins, a seemingly not-at-all depressed acquaintance, commits suicide out of the blue. Suddenly Maggie goes on high alert, remembering something her evil ex said about Larry—something highly suspicious.

And from there, it’s just a short segué to a bracing new development:

“When some women get divorced they go back to school, I thought. Some do volunteer work at the hospital, or join communes and learn to birth calves. Some have affairs with inappropriate men. My new interest is burglary. Maggie Longstreet, former wife and mother, past president of the Museum Guild, now starting a career as a second-story woman.”

Fortunately, Maggie isn’t alone in her adventure—a very attractive, much younger man proves a lot more fun than Richard ever was. In fact, the real delight of this witty, sly mystery is seeing Maggie come alive again after a suffocating marriage. Set in the’70s, it has a bit of that Mad Men feel of women on the brink of something big. And completely unexpected.

You know Maggie’s going to be okay when she says: “I’d rather have had one of those cute little guns with a mother-of-pearl handle, but this (diamond pin) would have to do. I concealed it in my hand. At least now I was armed—or pinned.”

The thief is in it for the power, but is the cost too high, or is he willing to make the sacrifice for his own selfish ends?

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.

Recipient of a Book of the Year Award from the Chicago Writers Association, Any Road Will Take You There is honest, unflinching, and tender.

In the tradition of the Great American Memoir, a middle-age father takes the reader on a five-thousand-mile road trip — the one he always wished he’d taken as a young man. Recently divorced and uncertain of the future, he rereads the iconic road story — Jack Kerouac’s On the Road — and along with his two sons and his best friend, heads for the highway to rekindle his spirit.

However, a family secret turns the cross-country journey into an unexpected examination of the author’s role as a father, and compels him to look to the past and the fathers who came before him to find contentment and clarity. The result is a memoir that reveals the generational struggles and triumphs of being a dad, and the beautiful but imperfect ties that connect all of us.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

He KNOWS TOO MUCH—but he doesn’t know what he knows…

Things were going lousy for ex-reporter Paul Mcdonald: No money, no girl friend, no bright new career as a mystery novelist … and then along came private investigator Jack Birnbaum with an offer: he’d detect, and Paul would write the client reports. It wasn’t much, but it would keep Spot the cat in Kitty Queen tidbits.

But then somebody poisoned Jack in Paul’s own living room. A day that begins with a body in your house really ought to get better, but next comes burglary and after that, assault-by-cop. And Paul’s got a feeling that’s just the beginning. There must have been something someone didn’t want him to know in one of those client reports. But what?

The wise-cracking, funny, but slightly depressed ex-journalist better become an ace private investigator in about two seconds—or end up like his detective mentor.

Birnbaum’s last report concerned a kidnapped child, so Paul begins there. The trail leads him to the laboratory of a Nobel laureate geneticist, and then to San Francisco City Hall, where an extremely nasty surprise awaits. But there’s an upside—lovely witness Sardis Kincannon. Nothing like falling in love while you’re running for your life!

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

What does the Dalai Lama’s life teach us?

Certainly, he is a sterling example of turning adversity into joyful service. But there is more to him than that. He is also a model of innovation and adaptation. He has taken the tenets of Buddhism and made them relevant to everyone. He has found commonalities in the teachings of Catholicism and Buddhism.

His message is not just about personal happiness and good karma, it is also very much about respecting the earth’s resources, recognizing the equality of all people, and sharing with the less fortunate.

He has said that, at ninety, he will decide whether his long series of lives as the Dalai Lama will end. As of this writing, he is nearly eighty. Will he live another ten years?

We can only hope so.

An Alternate (and Different) Site for Free Kindle Books

As I’ve mentioned before in prior posts, there are many other sites for free Kindle books than the Amazon website (shocking, I know!). One of those is called the Internet Sacred Text Archive.

Website: www.sacred-texts.com

This one, to me, is a little strange. They bill themselves as the largest freely available archive of online books about religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric on the Internet. The site is dedicated to religious tolerance and scholarship, and claims to have the largest readership of any similar site on the web.

While you will find a lot about major religions and religions you have never heard of before…for me, when I was on their once I got lost in their Nostradamus section…

If you download a Kindle book from the site, you will need to transfer it to your computer to your Kindle. Click here or type in http://smarturl.it/xfer into your web browser to read my post on how to do that procedure – this is the same text of the title I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but the blog readers can read it for free.

Enjoy exploring!

Michael

She’s Not Herself, by Linda Appleman Shapiro, is regularly $2.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars based on 14 customer reviews.

Category: Memoirs and Biographies

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

On the surface, her childhood seemed normal—even idyllic. Linda grew up in the iconic immigrant community of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, with her parents and a gifted older brother. But she spent her days at home alone with a mother who suffered major bouts of depression. At such times, young Linda was told, “Your mother…she’s not herself today.” Those words did little to help Linda understand what she was witnessing. Instead, she experienced the anxiety and hyper-vigilance that often take root when secrecy and shame surround a family member who is ill.

She’s Not Herself is a journey to make sense of the effects of multi-generational traumas. Shapiro is ultimately able to forgive (without forgetting) those who left her to fend for herself—and to provide readers with the wisdom of a seasoned psychotherapist who has examined human vulnerability in its many disguises and has moved through it all with dignity and hope. The result is a memoir of love, loss, loyalty, and healing.

Ages ago, in a mysterious event known as the Fall of Rainbow, the world lost all color. And now, a weak silver sun shines over a monochrome realm of infinite shades of gray….

In Tronaelend-Lis, glorious and decadent City of Dreams, of guilds and gods, courtesans and assassins, the Regent and Regentrix, sister and brother, rule a court of elegant debauchery, perverse desires, and secrets.

And into this wanton place comes Ranhéas Ylir, an eccentric and androgynous warrior woman, sworn to serve the mysterious Lord Elasand Vaeste, a man of impossible beauty, tormented by occult dreams and an unrequited love for a goddess.

Soon, loyal Ranhé is willing to fight for this one man unto death…

Meanwhile, another is willing to die for her.

But time is short for them all—out of the world’s twilight rises a being of utter darkness, the one absolute source of black, whose armies approach, in an epic invasion, to claim forest and wilderness.

The only thing that stands between the darkness and the City of Dreams is an antique secret—a flicker of ancient memory of those who had once filled the world with an impossible thing called color…

“You’re a vampire” is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she’s able to see in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn’t understand is why the other vampires expect her to have all the answers. It’s their fault she turned into one of them…right?

Jalmari’s hatred for his old-man intensifies when he’s ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run; there’s no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture. But when a two-thousand-year-old premonition threatens to take the crown and his life, Jalmari sees no other choice than to take out the catalyst, Ema Marx. Fortunately for Ema, she could also be the clan’s only savior.

The race to figure out her vampiric origins is on. And maybe she’ll get the hang of the blood-drinking gig along the way…

Give Me A Break!: Beginning Meditation for Mindfulness, Stress Relief, and Anxiety Management, by Whitney Stewart, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based 14 customer reviews.

Category: Health / Self-Improvement

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The simplest, easiest beginning meditation guide you’ll ever see!

Whitney Stewart has had her fair share of experiences worth meditating on. In 2005, she was trapped in downtown New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and helicoptered from the roof of a building with her young son and elderly mother-in-law. For the next five months, she lived in Nantucket and researched her book Marshall: A Nantucket Sea Rescue–she escaped one natural disaster and wrote about another. When she returned home to New Orleans, Ms. Stewart volunteered as a creative writing teacher in the public schools. She discovered that her students suffered from post-Katrina stress. Knowing this, Ms. Stewart began using beginning meditation techniques to teach her students to write about their lives, reduce stress, and relieve anxiety.

A Level III Reiki practitioner then studying Classical Tibetan, she began meditating after she met and interviewed the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet (the subject of her biography, The 14th Dalai Lama) and lived with a Tibetan refugee family in India. She’s trekked with Sir Edmund Hillary in Nepal, interviewed Burma’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi in her Rangoon home, and climbed along China’s Great Wall to research the lives of Deng Xiaoping and Mao Zedong.

Stewart’s straightforward guide to stress relief, anxiety management, and mindfulness makes meditation simple. It covers the basics in a concise thirty-three pages: Why meditation is good for you, how to sit, how to let your mind rest, even what to do if you feel weird or uncomfortable during meditation. Most importantly, it provides sixteen accessible, useful meditations you can easily learn at home.

For ages ten to adult. Note: This is a very short book.
