From the back cover:

For seasoned pilot David Terrell, nothing seemed more foolish than flying into a rainbow to wish for a wife. But the down-to-earth widower would do anything for his little girl, Jamie, and she would settle for nothing less than a fairy-tale princess as a mother. So to humor his six-year-old, David flew into the next rainbow he saw - and emerged in 1886 Wyoming.

Analisa Ludke couldn't believe it when the man emerged - like a storybook prince - from the strange flying contraption. She welcomed David into her home, and soon discovered that he was no mere fantasy. And as he struggled to return to his child, Analisa fought to understand the flood of emotions that engulfed her whenever he was around. Until she realized that David's love could take her to a place where dreams really do come true.

From the back cover:

Leila Sand, artist, mother, and world-class celebrity, is a true woman of her times. She came of age in the sixties and seventies as she sought escape and release in drugs, love affairs, fine wine, world travel - even marriage and motherhood. Now Leila is addicted to a younger man who sends her into an orgasmic frenzy but leaves her feeling empty, betrayed, and worthless.

Leila's efforts to free herself result in a sensual and spiritual odyssey that takes her from Alcoholics Anonymous meetings to violent performance art in a pitch black East Village nightclub, from glittering parties with SoHo celebrities, painters, art dealers, drug addicts, and "debutramps" to a liaison with a millionaire antique merchant. Along the way, she learns the rules of love and the secret of happiness.

From the back cover:

"When beautiful, unmarried Vianne Rocher sweeps into the pinched little French town of Lansquenet on the heels of the carnival and opens a gem of a chocolate shop across the square from the church, she begins to wreak havoc with the town's Lenten vows. Her uncanny ability to perceive her customers' private discontents and alleviate them with just the right confection coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation and happiness, but enrages Pere Reynaud, the local priest. Certain only a witch could stir such sinful indulgence and devise such clever cures, Reynaud pits himself against Vianne and vows to block the chocolate festival she plans for Easter Sunday, and to run her out of town forever. Witch or not (she'll never tell), Vianne soon sparks a dramatic confrontation between those who prefer the cold comforts of the church and those who revel in their newly discovered taste for pleasure."


Dear Senator : A Memoir by the Daughter of Strom Thurmond
Review Date: 9/2/2010


From the back cover:

"In her New York Times bestselling memoir Dear Senator, Essie Mae Washington-Williams - daughter of the late senator Strom Thurmond - breaks her lifelong silence and tells the story of her life. Until the age of sixteen, Washington-Williams assumed that the aunt and uncle who raised her in Pennsylvania were her parents. The revelation that her father was the longtime senator from South Carolina - once the nation's leading voice for racial segregation - and that her mother was Carrie Butler, the Thurmond family's fifteen-year-old black maid, was a shock that would change the course of her life.

Set against the explosively changing times of the civil rights movement, Washington-Williams's memoir reveals a brave young woman who struggled with the discrepancy between the father she knew - one who was financially generous, supportive of her education, even affectionate - and the old-South politician, railing against racial equality, who refused to acknowledge their relationship in public. Told with elegance, candor, and spirit, Dear Senator is a classic American story that will be heard and cherished by generations."

From the back cover:

An ideal spouse, the Earl of Wyldewood had decided, should be pleasant to look at and agreeable to display on his arm. She should have little effect on his well-ordered life, and little to do with his private pursuit of pleasure. After meeting Sabrina Winfield, he thought he had found the woman to fit the bill. Graceful and genteel, the exquisite blonde seemed a perfect match.

But appearances, the Earl was soon to discover, could be deceiving. For beneath Sabrina's delicate beauty lay the most infuriatingly stubborn, wildly adventurous woman he'd ever known. And now his plans for a proper marriage were about to go dreadfully awry. For suddenly all the mighty Earl could think about was silencing her biting repartee with his kisses, diverting her schemes with expert seduction, and forever surrendering his heart and soul to her capable hands.

Since escaping a dangerously abusive marriage, Fleurette Eddings, Lady Glendowne, has reveled in her freedom - turning the heads of the ton with her unrestrained enjoyment of life.

For Fleurette is hiding a dark secret and is in dire need of a champion - and Killian's mission could be compromised by an unbidden love that transcends time.
