A full length romance novel variation of Pride and Prejudice Rebecca Stanton is the only daughter of a struggling farmer. After an unexpected tragedy strikes her family, she finds herself fighting to protect everything that she loves from being torn apart and destroyed. Her battle is further challenged by the focused attention of two men; the first a prominent plantation owner who pushes her temper to its most violent depths, while the second holds a letter of debt against her which could mean the loss of her home. This is a clean regency romance written in the classical style of Jane Austen's works. It is a Pride and Prejudice variation set between the American Colonial and Regency eras, when the white settlers still viewed the Native Americans with some prejudice. It has a few plot twists and variations, but any fan of Jane Austen's books will recognize the underlying story. Horses feature strongly in this tale as well, so readers who enjoy a clean horse romance novel may also find it enjoyable.

A book of poems by a Vietnam Vet and award winning poet that will touch the heart and soul of everyone with a Vietnam connection. A must-read for anyone wishing to better understand the human tragedy and suffering of the troubled Vet. As sure as the Wall heals, this volume of poetry will help bring closure for some. At the very least, it will provoke a wide array of emotions from anger, hostility and pain to spiritual awakenings. It will answer some 'why's" for many and leave just as many asking "why?" Hear the pain, feel the anger, live the guilt and remorse, listen for the cries, dream the broken dreams and scream out in fear at the nightmares. Take a stroll through the twisted and troubled minds that are forever scarred by a thing called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Will you be better for it? You be the judge. My only desire is to bring a better understanding of the troubled Vet. If one person is reached by the words herein, then my endeavor was not in vain. Jerry L. Watson

How a trashy billionaire with no government experience pushed his way into the most powerful job on earth is a question nobody can really answer.

This book is a countrywoman's views on family, nature, and life in a small town. I chose the name "Musings" as that is where the main thoughts come from. I think of the topics as I am driving, sitting on my front porch, or just before going to sleep. Some are humorous, some thought provoking, and some sad that's life.

Is Sherlock Holmes really as rational as he seems? He talks about the importance of reasoning and logic, but why then does he sometimes seem like a "strange Buddha"? On the other hand, why in The Sign of the Four does Watson smash a Buddha? What is going on in The Sign of the Four, that strange tale of Empire? What is going on in all the original sixty stories in "the canon"? In this study of the stories, Sheldon Goldfarb explores questions like these, from the significance of the eggs in "Thor Bridge" to the reason Watson keeps leaving Holmes for an insubstantial wife. What meanings lurk beneath the surface of these detective stories? Why is there an obsession with Napoleon in this story or an article on free trade in this other? Can we find answers to these questions? Perhaps. In any case, in this collection of essays (or "Musings") on each of the 60 stories, Dr. Goldfarb, an award-nominated mystery writer himself and the holder of a PhD in English literature, light-heartedly tries out a variety of perspectives, allowing readers to come to their own conclusions about such matters as the nature of the angel in "A Case of Identity" or the reason Holmes abandons his magnifying glass for binoculars in "Silver Blaze." Who brings binoculars to a horse race? Indeed.

"A paranormal love story that will leave readers satisfied in every way." --Urban Book Reviews Frustrated muse Alexandra has had it with the arrogant, ungrateful humans she is obligated to inspire. When the internal ranting of her latest charge pushes her past reason, she disregards the rules and forces her own words through his fingers, and is instantly entrapped in mortal form. With no magic, no identity, and no resources, Allie has no alternative but to navigate the mortal realm, depending entirely on her reluctant host while discerning what exactly caused her transformation--and how to reverse it. Brett doesn't have a chance to consider the words that mysteriously showed up on his screen; he's too distracted by the stunning woman who appeared in his office out of nowhere. Before his brain can catch up, Brett's uninvited guest becomes enmeshed in his everyday life. Her artless innocence gradually lessens his suspicions. Most importantly, the writer's block that's been plaguing him dissolves under the fantasies the naively beguiling Alexandra inspires. All too soon, the forced proximity sparks a confounding awareness neither writer nor muse are able to resist. Fans of A Fish Called Wanda or Ruby Sparks will love this magical fish out of water romance. -- Mortal Musings was a 2016 Booksellers' Best Award Finalist

"In this book, Evgenia Cherkasova brings the philosopher Kant and the novelist Dostoevsky together in conversations that probe why duty is central to our moral life. She shows that just as Dostoevsky is indebted to Kant, so Kant would profit from the deeply philosophical narratives of Dostoevsky, which engage the problem of evil and the claims of human community. She not only produces a novel reading of Dostoevsky, but also guides us to later, often neglected Kantian texts. This study is written with scholarly care, penetrating analysis, elegance of style, and moral urgency: Cherkasova writes with both mind and heart."

How does creativity thrive in the face of fascism? How can a highly artistic individual function professionally in so threatening a climate?Composers of the Nazi Era is the final book in a critically acclaimed trilogy that includes Different Drummers (OUP 1992) and The Twisted Muse (OUP 1997), which won the Wallace K. Ferguson Prize of the Canadian Historical Association. Here, historian Michael H. Kater provides a detailed study of the often interrelated careers of eight prominent German composers who lived and worked amid the dictatorship of the Third Reich, or were driven into exile by it: Werner Egk, Paul Hindemith, Kurt Weill, Karl Amadeus Hartmann, Carl Orff, Hans Pfitzner, Arnold Schoenberg, and Richard Strauss. Kater weighs issues of accommodation and resistance to ask whether these artists corrupted themselves in the service of a criminal regime--and if so, whether this may be discerned from their music. After chapters discussing the circumstances of each composer individually, Kater concludes with an analysis of the composers' different responses to the Nazi regime and an overview of the sociopolitical background against which they functioned. The final chapter also extends the discussion beyond the end of World War II to examine how the composers reacted to the new and fragile democracy in Germany.

This modern collection of surrealist prose-poems was inspired by the improvisational method of automatic writing, popularized by the International Surrealist Movement. From one brain to another without any literary rules or standards, the words in these automatic writings are not just words, but rays of subconscious illumination that peel away the various layers of the “civilized,” western psyche, one by one. Full of bizarre transformations and dark, irrationally motivated patterns of erotic thought, these writings will seduce the reader into nothing less than a sublime overload and transgressive derangement of the senses. While a must-read for the poetically daring and the adventurous, this book is not recommended for those who seek peaceful numbness and safety!
