SHE BELONGS TO HIM... Sold to Suleiman Bakhar after being taken prisoner on the high seas, Eleanor Nash is fearful of what will become of her. The all-powerful Suleiman will not allow her to leave Constantinople, while Eleanor is adamant that she will not willingly become his concubine. Impressed by his spirited captive, Suleiman seeks her out at every opportunity. To Eleanor's surprise, he's open to Western ways. The glimpses of the sensitive man behind the awesome public image tease and tantalize her -- and his seduction is increasingly hard to resist. But can Eleanor ever hope to become his one true love?
This well-researched historical novel reveals the intimate world of the Union Village Shaker community that flourished in southern Ohio in the early 19th century. Dell, who was born in Ohio in 1901 when the community was still struggling along (it closed in 1912), has spent a lifetime fascinated by the Ohio Shakers; he began work on this novel more than 30 years ago, when he retired from teaching at Capital University. Dell is a knowledgeable historian, sensitively portraying tensions within antebellum Shakerism, which was spreading its influence from the Northeast to the Midwest. The book's protagonist is one Richard Robinson, an uneducated young man who leaves his farming home for the opportunities of pre-Civil War Cincinnati. While he is there, his childhood sweetheart, Ruth, joins up with the Shakers, leaving no word of her whereabouts. When Richard leaves Cincinnati disillusioned and as penniless as when he arrived, he has to search high and low for her in "Shakertown." Dell fills the novel with fascinating details about daily life among the Shakers, from their meals and work habits to their hymns and distinctive dances.
Friends help you move. Real friends help you move the body.
In the fast-moving, action-filled Daredevil's Apprentice, small-town reporter Viv Powers learns that horrible lesson when her best friend and fellow adventurer, Cherokee storyteller Lucie Dreadfulwater, calls for Viv's help after she kills a man. Viv renders assistance, and then is plagued by doubts: Was it self-defense or homicide? Would her best friend have involved her in a cold-blooded murder? She sets out to find the truth in spite of the danger she encounters from human predators and the rumors that echo in the hills around her--of a man-eating witch of Cherokee legend.
In the Ozarks of northeast Oklahoma, gamblers, musicians, journalists, land developers, and artists live together in the shadow of the tragic Cherokee past. Old and deadly secrets collide with present-day greed and vengeance to shatter small-town calm as Viv insists on prying into the deaths set in motion by her friend Lucie's violent act. Viv is as strong and steady as the hills where she makes her home, and as courageous as her daredevil friend. But can she face the truth about Lucie, and about the never-quite-forgotten past?
Viv Powers is a strong female protagonist who will appeal to readers of Nevada Barr, and everyone who enjoys a well-written, suspenseful mystery.
In this wildly erotic, magical and comic novel of fast-paced suspense, Rebecca, a modern day Scarlett O'Hara from New York City, embarks on an impassioned search for her infant daughter, Lily, and Lily's kidnapper. Her quest leads to a mountaintop community of women emulating mythical Amazon warriors where Rebecca is reunited with both Lily, being raised as an Amazon, and Sagana, formerly Rebecca's devoted best friend and now the passionate, fierce, and beautiful Amazon queen. She also meets the equally memorable Howard Geller, a wisecracking, romantic, runaway teenager living on the fringe of the community. This many-leveled contemporary fable incorporates such motifs as personal ads and female bodybuilding, while asking difficult questions about women's roles as friends, lovers, mothers, and daughters.
The Good Conscience is Carlos Fuentes's second novel. The scene is Guanajuato, a provincial capital in Central Mexico, once one of the world's richest mining centers. The Ceballos family has been reinstated to power, and adolescent Jaime Ceballos, its only heir, is torn between the practical reality of his family's life and the idealism of his youth and his Catholic education. His father is a good man but weak; his uncle is powerful, yet his actions are inconsistent with his professed beliefs. Jaime's struggle to emerge as a man with a "good conscience" forms the theme of the book: can a rebel correct the evils of an established system and at the same time retain the integrity of his principles?
Italian writer Cardo Maraini is a cauldron of contradictions. Plagued by guilt over the drowning of his younger brother, he is strangely terrified by life. When the Norwegian woman he loves becomes pregnant, he plunges into a comically disastrous liaison, fleeing from commitment and responsibility. He tries to escape through writing about his youth, reliving erotic encounters and the political activism of Italy in the 1960s. When he is finally forced to confront his past and his evasions, he learns to face his fear and finds that there are second chances after all.
From a darkly humorous tale of the power of words ("Death and the Librarian") to a never-before-published response to the events of September 11 ("Ilion"), Friesner's 12 stories illustrate the author's acutely sensitive vision of wonder in the everyday world. Often cloaked in humor, these tales always provide keen insights using sf and fantasy as vehicles. Known primarily for his "Star Wars" novels, including Heir to the Empire, Zahn's short stories also deliver strong plots and memorable characters. Beginning with a tale of interstellar war against a hive-mind ("Point Man") and ending with a novella that combines space travel and music in a unique and surprising fashion, Star Song's six pieces illuminate the author's versatility and eclectic tastes. Zebrowski's many novels (e.g., Macrolife) mark him as a visionary as well as a master of hard sf. The ten short stories collected in In the Distance provide a benchmark of his creativity. From tales of the near future ("The Water Sculptor") to those of the far future ("Between the Winds"), the author expands his concept of the human condition to embrace the stars. Part of Five Star's continuing commitment to showcasing the short fiction of the genre's most prominent authors, these three volumes belong in most libraries where short sf is popular.
Wolf is a vagrant pavement artist on the streets of Amsterdam. He remembers nothing before the hospital, where he was treated for gunshot wounds. The police want to talk to him and sinister men are on his trailâhe has to find a way into his mysterious past before his ignorance kills him. Robin Carlson, rebellious daughter of a U.S. general, has a do-it-my-way attitude. Stranded in Amsterdam, she puts her military training to use as a martial arts instructor and part-time bouncer in the cityâs nightclubs. Robinâs desperate bid to help her on-again, off-again boyfriend catapults her into the murky world of illegal designer drugs. Wolf follows his heart and blunders into deep trouble. Robin and Wolf's paths are about to cross, but can they survive the Nemesis Project?
MAASAI DAYS ::
The American conquest of California is the subject of Lawrence Coates's remarkable new novel, a tale rich in magical irony, fraught with caustic truths and wrenching insights into the human condition. When Commodore Jones and the crew of the National Intention land in Monterey believing themselves to be bringing freedom and democracy to the benighted Californios, they discover that history has preceded them, that cruelty, betrayal, greed, and lust are already well established there, and that far from existing outside of history, California is a battleground for several contending versions of the past. They also find that their own limitations and illusions are far more powerful than the message of hope that they intend to deliver.
The motley crew of the National Intention includes a chronically seasick poet who pens an epic account of the conquest of California without ever setting eyes on the place or leaving his sickbed; a wondrously endowed captain irresistible to all women but seeking only the one who can help him escape the dark truth of his own separateness; and a crafty ex-slave who plans to abandon ship to create a new family to carry on the timeless history of his people lost on the Middle Passage. The ship's quixotic master, Commodore Jones, dedicates his acts to his chaste beloved-a woman who long ago betrayed him to marry his more successful brother. And helping to shape all their fates is a beautiful fourteen-year-old girl who escapes an unwanted marriage to a decayed septuagenarian by weaving her own magical shroud. There is also a lively set of supporting characters--land-rich dons, traders, friars, love-starved maiden aunts as well as dispossessed Indians whose own bitter irony has been nurtured by history. And there is the land itself--empty, enigmatic, home to vast populations of wildlife and countless herds of cattle.
"The Master of Monterey" is filled with heartbreaking irony and raucous energy-the story of the men who claimed the West and who, far from creating history, found themselves trapped within it.
Former CIA agent Nick Seven gets pulled from his peaceful life on Key Largo to pursue a resurrected terrorist halfway around the world, only to find himself drawn into a web of espionage, murder, blackmail and high-level government corruption that threatens national security and the principles of freedom.
Drawing on work of the past decade, this volume brings together articles from the philosophy, history, and sociology of science, and many other branches of the biological sciences. The volume delves into the latest theoretical controversies as well as burning questions of contemporary social importance. The issues considered include the nature of evolutionary theory, biology and ethics, the challenge from religion, and the social implications of biology today (in particular the Human Genome Project).
Miguel is Cuban American, with the accent on American. But beneath the surface of his sun-drenched Mimai lifestyle lurks an evil that theatens to destroy him. The chance reading of a newspaper article reporting a theft and the ritualistic murder of a drug dealer pitches Miguel into battle with an underworld dominated by santeria in this spell-binding novel.
Signal Hill ::
Five stories track boys and men as they navigate among the ghosts and mirages of greater Los Angeles. Rifkin's male protagonists are part fuck-up, part primal force, and full of longing-for fathers, for mothers, for sex, for faith, for just getting it right.
A one-time actor staggers toward his demise and clings to a ledge of -possibly lunatic belief; a young boy is haunted by cosmic loneliness in the form of a medical encyclopedia; the heir to an absent father's wealth can't quite bring himself to claim his portion.
The ordinary becomes epic in the contested terrain between faith and doubt, love and sex, spirit and flesh, reality and illusion.
Matilda Jane Anderson drives a brand new 1917 Model T with Sweet Tilly painted on the heavy metal plate covering the radiator. Tilly doesn't care what people say. Well, until she finds herself put behind bars by a new sheriff determined to confiscate her automobile and her property. Sheriff Rayford Sloan cleans up boom towns. He drifts in and works at getting rid of moonshiners, putting brothels out of business, generally making a place where men folks can bring their families. He drifts out when his job is done. Tilly Anderson gets under his skin from the beginning. He can't prove she's a moonshiner, but his gut feeling keeps telling him she most certainly is. He promises he'll shadow her every move and he'll own that moonshiner's car before he leaves town. That's if he ever leaves.
In this modest little book, originally written as a handbook for Negative Population Growth, Inc., Lindsey Grant, a retired career U.S. government official and diplomat, explores the consequences of having six billion people on the planet, and how much worse things are going to get as our numbers increase.

I know I personally prefer to order books when there are very few or only one in the system. That way you have a better chance of someone wanting the book from you when you are done with it.
I have not ran a deal yet on my bookshelf, so I will try a 3 books for 2 credits deal. Only one hardback per 3-for-2 offer please. You can also take an unpostable that I have listed in my profile. I still have more unpostables to list and will try to get to that very soon. If you want to order a bunch of childrens books, let me know which ones you would like and we can work out a better deal.
