Explanation of the Book:

Loyalty, trust and revenge. These are the things that plagued Angelique Dupre. As a child she was uprooted from her home country, submerged in a new culture and an equally strange language. As a teen she experiences the first taste of love, but suffers through a kidnapping which affects every area of her life for years to come. Was her new love involved in her abduction? Following her horrific ordeal, Angel struggles through failed relationships, a failed marriage, estrangement from her father, and many other crippling losses, which leave her demoralized and unable to trust herself and others. In spite of the setbacks, however, Angel, as she's affectionately called, has become a successful, noted author. Yet she is often plagued by the memories of her ordeal and losses when she drifts off to fitful sleep filled with nightmares. The trusting friendship of Vivian Summervale, Angel's best friend from her high school years, is the one stabilizing force that keeps Angel grounded. The two rely on each other, have each other's backs. It is in this capacity that the two women forge a lifelong bond. The common denominator for them both is relationship issues. But as Angel finds herself confronting a love interest from her past, she is overwhelmed. With revelations of deceit and betrayal, can Angel learn to trust again and open her heart to allow true love in? Ultimately, the evil forces that manipulate Angel's life must be revealed. Revenge is a deadly game played on the innocent Angel by an unhinged mastermind that must be revealed. Will this happen? Will Angel be able to be whole again, to love and be loved? Read on to unlock the mystery.

Explanation of the Book:

Coyness and Crime examines the extraordinary focus on feminine coyness in forty English comedies by ten diverse playwrights of the late seventeenth-century. In contexts ranging from reaffirmations of church and king to emerging interests in liberty and novelty, these plays consistently reveal women caught in an ironic and nearly intractable convergence of objectification and culpability that allows them little innocent sexual agency; this is both the source and the legacy of coyness in Restoration comedy.

Explanation of the Book:

Life is a series of chances and regrets. The weak falter, leaving the strong to suffer the wicked and depraved. Cole Stockton was a lion among lambs seeking penance for his dark past, and I was only too eager to escape my own. It starts with a flicker in the distance. A slow burn that radiates a tireless beckoning. No matter how hard you fight to resist the allure, you succumb. Drawn in like a moth to a flame, only to watch your precious wings scorch and fade to dust. I had thought there were only two lessons in life needed to survive. One: Love, with everything you are. Two: Live, for everything you dream. But there was a third, and that was perhaps the toughest of all. "Three." His warm breath fans across my cheek as his fingers dig into my bare hips. "Fight, with everything you have." The whip sails through the air and cracks across my sensitive flesh. And fight I do, with everything I have. AUTHOR'S NOTE: This book is intended for a mature audience only, due to language and erotic content.

Explanation of the Book:

Are you ready to respond to the most relevant questions of sexuality today? Lifetime monogamy is passé. Pornography infiltrates nearly every home. Homosexuality is accepted. Lust has been redefined. The family as an institution is questioned. We are reminded every day that assumptions about what is right and wrong, sexually, are different today than they were fifty–or even ten–years ago. Christian principles that formed the pattern for generations of American families are conspicuously absent. What happened and why? How do we respond to the dramatic shift in our culture’s perspective on sex? As one of today’s most influential thinkers, Dr. Albert Mohler addresses these critical topics in a thoughtful, cut-to-the-chase style in Desire and Deceit. As you follow Mohler’s guidance in applying biblical solutions to today’s most highly charged issues, you will be not only equipped but also inspired to speak the truth in a society hungry for answers.

Explanation of the Book:

This “amusing and elegantly written” romp takes readers on a wild ride through the life of Robert Parkin Peters (The New York Times Book Review)—a liar, bigamist, and fraudulent priest who tricked some of the brightest minds of his generation. One day in November 1958, the celebrated historian Hugh Trevor–Roper received a curious letter. It was an appeal for help, written on behalf of a student at Magdalen College, with the unlikely claim that he was being persecuted by the Bishop of Oxford. Curiosity piqued, Trevor–Roper agreed to a meeting. It was to be his first encounter with Robert Parkin Peters: plagiarist, bigamist, fraudulent priest, and imposter extraordinaire. The Professor and the Parson is a witty and charming portrait of eccentricity, extraordinary narcissism, and a life as wild and unlikely as any in fiction. Motivated not by money but by a desire for prestige, Peters lied, stole, and cheated his way to academic positions and religious posts from Cambridge to New York. Frequently deported, and even more frequently discovered, he left a trail of destruction including seven marriages (three of which were bigamous) and an investigation by the FBI. "I was captivated from start to finish by this utterly mad, and wholly delightful story of chicanery and fantasy, and which involves a man who relentlessly duped our most cherished institutions of godly pursuit and higher learning. Plus I learned how to defrock a priest, always good to have on hand in these troubling times." —Simon Winchester, author of The Perfectionists
