          Goodbye, passion? Not so fast.

But you can reclaim that mad-for-you, crazy-in-love feeling, and this time it will be deeper and more intimate than ever before. Your guide? King Solomon, the Bible's greatest lover, who has a few secrets up his ancient sleeve about how a husband and wife can experience unending passion--and have a blast doing it.

          A Gritty, Raw Real-Life Tale That Will Both Shock and Inspire You

          So many thoughts twirl in my head....I want to think back as far as I can remember--think on things I had long ago buried and let stay buried. There were things I never told anyone. Now is the time to tell it, though. Help me remember it, Lord, so I can tell it just the way it was.

          Over fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Robert Sadler was sold into slavery at the age of five--by his own father. Originally published in 1975, this is the no-holds-barred tale of those dark days, his quest for freedom, and the determination to serve others borne out of his experience. You won't forget this poignant true story of good triumphing over evil, of God's grace, and of an extraordinary life of ministry.

                      The Dark Lifer's Revenge  

                      by Linda Joy Singleton


                      Young Adult


                      Sabine Rose from The Seer series teams up with Amber Borden from the Dead Girl series in this exciting short story by Linda Joy Singleton.

                      After getting kicked out of school and sent to live with her grandmother, Sabine Rose tried to ignore her troublemaking psychic abilities. All she wanted was to be a normal teen. But the spirit world has other plans for her.

                      Amber Borden is a high school student and aspiring talent agent with an unexpected side-job: she’s a Temp Lifer. By temporarily stepping into the bodies of people who are suffering, Amber navigates their daily lives and tries to fix their problems. Luckily her loyal boyfriend, Eli, has been very supportive—even during that freaky time when Amber inhabited his sister’s body.

                      When Sabine’s boyfriend, Dominic, loses his own body to a revenge-obsessed Dark Lifer—one of the disturbed souls who “borrow” living people’s bodies to do their dirty work—Sabine goes to Amber for help. Working together to find and free Dominic, the girls begin to unravel the Dark Lifer’s twisted plan of vengeance. But it throws them directly into the path of the troubled soul’s murderous rage . . .

                      Bonus: Tantalizing excerpts from Singleton’s hit books Don’t Die, Dragonfly and Dead Girl Walking, and a sneak peek at her latest page-turner, Buried.

                            The killer picks her up in a Manhattan night club. Another trendy victim of the latest downtown scene. Young. Fresh. Healthy. Perfect. The police find her body in a Bronx park. Pale as a ghost. Peaceful in death. Her life has been drained away. Slowly. Methodically. Brilliantly. . .

                            NYPD profiler Lee Campbell has seen the gruesome handiwork of the most deranged criminal minds. But this is something new. Something unbelievably twisted. A blood-obsessed lunatic who chooses his victims with deadly, loving care--and forces Campbell to confront the demons in his own life. No matter who wins this game, there will be blood. . .

                                The Gang That Shot Up Hollywood: Chronicles of a Chronicle Writer: Vol. 1

                                by John Stanley



                                John Stanley, 33-year veteran entertainment writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, stalks the environs of Hollywood and San Francisco to profile male & female stars of yesteryear who blasted their way through movies and TV series with high-powered handguns, curvaceous, slinky bodies and other weapons of excessive destruction, all for decent box office. Savor four classic Clint Eastwood encounters: Two “Dirty Harry” moments with actor Clint and two Iwo Jima moments with director Clint. Stanley presents exclusive material and photos about Iwo surrounding the raising of the first small flag, and introduces you to fellow Chronicle employee Joe Rosenthal, who took the famous photo of the second flag-raising. Can hard-hitting martial arts star Chuck Norris survive three showdowns with Stanley? James Stewart survived two Stanley encounters: one about his hard-boiled Westerns, the other about his Hitchcock classics. Meet Robert and John Mitchum, ornery fighting brothers whom Stanley knew intimately, and learn the full truth behind Robert’s 1948 arrest for marijuana use, never before revealed. Karl Malden faces Stanley in five showdowns on the streets of San Francisco. Sink into the world of film noir with “Czar of Noir” Eddie Muller and a warm swarm of femme fatales such as Jane Russell, Ida Lupino, Lauren Bacall, Barbara Stanwyck, Anne Francis, Evelyn Keyes, Marie Windsor, Carroll Baker and other undulating ladies, “the intellectual half.” It’s another noir moment on the set of Samuel Fuller’s “Naked Kiss” when Stanley overhears a conversation that leads to the downfall of the popular cult director, whom Stanley profiles in depth from personal encounters. Then there’s a grim Fisherman’s Wharf showdown with “Virginian” star James Drury that still has Stanley spinning. Plus countless other moments with Hollywood icons, told with 740 photographs and 17 show biz caricatures. Text and imagery material that will shake up any motion picture lover
