Description :


The hunt forthe most prolific American arsonist of the twentieth century—in this Edgar Award–winning true crime story that’s “stranger than fiction” (The New York Times). From Joseph Wambaugh, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of such classics as The Onion Field and The Choirboys, comes the extraordinary story of the chase for the “Pillow Pyro,” led by one ambitious firefighter. Growing up in Los Angeles, John Orr idolized law enforcement. However, after being rejected by both the LAPD and LAFD, he settled for a position with the Glendale Fire Department. There, he rose through the ranks, eventually becoming a fire captain and one of Southern California’s best-known and most respected arson investigators. But Orr led another, unseen life, one that included womanizing and an insatiable thirst for recognition. While Orr busted a slew of petty arsonists, there was one serial criminal he could not track down. Nothing was safe from the so-called Pillow Pyro’s obsession. Homes, retail stores, and fields of dry brush all went up in flames. His handiwork led to millions of dollars worth of property damage and the deaths of four innocent bystanders. But after years of evading the police, he made a mistake—one that would turn Orr’s life upside down. The Washington Post raves, “When [Joseph Wambaugh] talks about the culture of cops versus the culture of firemen, we get no speculation, only hard-earned details.” Based on meticulous research, interviews, case records, and thousands of pages of court transcripts, Fire Lover is Wambaugh at his best.

"A Tolkien-esque world combined with an eighteenth-century historical romance produces a satisfying tale with twists you'll never expect. Excellent!"—Jennifer Ashley, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author A unique combination of historical and fantasy romance, The Fire Lord's Lover will fascinate readers of Karen Monin, Jennifer Armentrout, Kresley Cole, and Diane Duval who will adore this imaginative unexpected love story between the son of a tyrant and the woman sent to take them both down. In a magical land ruled by ruthless Elven lords, the Fire Lord's son Dominic Raikes plays a deadly game to conceal his growing might from his malevolent father—until his arranged bride awakens in him passions he thought he had buried forever. Lady Cassandra has been raised in outward purity and innocence, while secretly being trained as an assassin. Her mission is to bring down the Elven Lord and his champion son. But when she gets to court she discovers that nothing is what it seems, least of all the man she married. But beneath the gilded castles lies an unspeakable evil, greater than either Dominic or Cassandra had ever fathomed, and without each other they may not survive.

Can you love the one you hate? Lindsay is determined to outshine her mother's illustrious career. As head of marketing for the exclusive Freeman Hotel, in the rarefied mountains of northern Washington, Lindsay grapples with her rival, the charming newcomer, Lucifer Furey Pierse. No one knows much about Luke except he could turn murder into a comedy routine, that he likes classy women and is oddly drawn to the prickly, definitely not-interested Lindsay. It starts with a bet that goes horribly wrong. If Lyndsay wins, then Luke leaves town—forever. If Luke wins, he gets a date with Lyndsay. But when Luke wins and Lindsay is forced to pay the price, she learns more about Lucifer Furey Pierse than she thought existed. The date kick-starts a bitter-sweet journey as they learn why they are the people they have become. Then life hands them an unexpected twist they must deal with...one that tests both of them to limits. __ Reviewer's Top Pick - Night Owl Reviews Lucifer's Lover is an emotionally vested romance between two people who think they know what they want. Fact is they truly have no clue until fate forces them to face them to take a cold hard look at what's important. Lyndsay and Luke are exceptionally drawn characters. —Kristi Ahlers, Amazon Top 500 reviewer. Lucifer's Lover had me breathless from the first page ...You will not want to miss this tale that will have your crying with the characters as they face their hurt and rejoicing. —Romance Junkies I could not help but fall in love with this well-written story and the characters on their path to self-discovery. —Coffee Time Romance. The ending is so real-life, the arguments, the words and actions draws the reader into the characters lives and you're left feeling as though you've experienced the entire thing yourself. ... I personally can't wait to pick up another of her novels. —The Romance Readers Connection Lucifer's Lover is an obsessively enchanting tale of a battle of wills that turns into a life changing romance. If you love your characters with a bit of gumption and a whole lot of personality then this is one you cannot pass up. —Sheryl for eCataromance

Simcha Guterman's, Leaves from Fire, is a firsthand account written with the deep sense of comprehension he was documenting the fate of his people. Knowing full well that his life was in danger, Simcha chronicled the occurrences of the Holocaust on long scraps of paper, as they happened right before his eyes. The events described take place in Poland, during the first years of World War II. The author stuffed long paper scraps, written in Yiddish, into bottles and hid in them in different places. One of these bottles was discovered after the war. Simcha Guterman's work has been published and translated into eight different languages, receiving high praise from critics. The book's evocative illustrations were drawn by Yaakov Guterman, the author's son.

When ancient gods ruled and Druids kept Faith alive, the Celts thrived as a democratic, matriarchal society. Then savage Roman soldiers swept across Europe, killing and enslaving. The Celts did not succumb without a fight. Their Old Ways survived centuries of ruthless domain until another menace loomed: a tortured god worshiped in cold stone buildings. The sacred shores of Avalon began to drift away, the mists threatened to hide the island from mortal eyes forever. Against the bleak backdrop of war, the gorgeous Scottish Highlands stood tall, sheltering its inhabitants from greedy invaders. Yet the reach of the eagle banners was long and the highlanders turned to the Goddess for protection. However, the sacred groves felt silent and grim as Avalon faded away. Once sad, pealing bells began to sound strangely comforting while the high walls of monasteries offered an alluring barrier from violence. Caught in the middle of this centuries-old war, a young High Priestess might be Avalon's last chance. Wise beyond her years and powerful like no other Priestess in her lifetime, Rowen had served the Goddess faithfully, forsaking her family and the company of her soulmate. When the Lady of the Lake asks for another sacrifice, it might be one too many for her scarred heart. How could she obey the Goddess without betraying Caddaric? Could she trust Eochaid, who embodied everything she despised and hated? Would she be able to fulfill her duties without losing her soul? Caddaric had been Rowen's companion in countless lives; but, now, they existed in different realms. Beautiful Rowen lived in the mortal world while sweet Caddaric remained in the sacred isle of Avalon, watching over her. Could he step aside to allow another man - a flesh and blood man - to become her protector? Eochaid had sworn to protect the Old Ways. The rude warrior never quite understood his faith yet his loyal heart belonged to the Goddess. A gorgeous, fiery High Priestess was not in his plans. He would risk his life to protect Rowen; but, would the Goddess safeguard his heart? Could he defend the bewitching maiden from himself? When stakes were so high that a simple mistake could cost their very world, a priestess, a Druid, and a warrior must learn to trust one another and the mysterious ways of the Goddess. Their success would save Avalon. Their failure would tear the island from the human realm forever, condemning it to oblivion. Failure was not an option. This is a standalone, historical/paranormal romance. Its mature themes - sexual violence, religion, and pagan rituals - might not be appropriate for audiences under 18.

One mistake can shatter dreams and shape the future. Alexis knows this first hand. Even though her memory of that day is hazy, she has spent the last ten years trying to put it behind her. Armed with the knowledge that her career will be her only legacy, Alexis works night and day to prove that she is more than just her last name. It's not only that she doesn't have time for love. She doesn't have the heart for it. After all, there's no point in starting something you can't finish. When she meets Adam, she's drawn to him in a way even she can't deny. The film student is dark and brooding and strangely charming. He's the perfect distraction from her mundane life. And, as if fate is pushing them together, he seems to be around every corner. It's enough to almost make her entirely forget about her past and take a chance. But Adam can recall every detail that she's forgotten. What she doesn't remember, he can't forget.

After five years, Vanity Rodriquez, new restaurateur, was finally moving on with her life. The unexpected inheritance of St. Christopher's Italian Restaurant caused a dramatic change in her career but it made her one of the top up and coming restaurateurs in the country. Vanity relocated to California to put her divorce from Winston and the death of her soul mate, Dexter McKnight behind her. At her first grand opening of St. Christopher's in Los Angeles, she met Grant Parker, a coastal engineer from Rancho Cordova. Originally from Jamaica, he had a dark rough exterior but when put in a tailored suit, he was a clean cut Versace top model - definitely her style. Their attraction was almost instant and after a few months they were unquestionably an item. Life was good and normalcy was starting to be the norm for Vanity. The dreams she had at night of sexual encounters with Dexter were starting to subside and intimacy with her new boyfriend felt real. A year into the relationship with Grant, at the San Francisco opening, all of what she had come to know as life back to normal was over. Her dreams were no longer successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occurred involuntarily in her mind during sleep...they were real.
