An intruder from the Dark Shore, the malevolent shadow of her dream, threatens the life of her unborn. If she cannot locate and expel this shadow thing, she will waken the child’s stern father, and he will dissolve the dream—and the Bright Shore will vanish.

Sex. Murder. Mystery. (True Crime Box Set)

Three book box set (two full length book and a short story) by New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen.
This title was previously published as Confessions of an American Black Widow.
Sharon Nelson, a Colorado woman, had her lover Gary Adams murder two of her three husbands. But more interesting than the crime itself is Olsen’s portrait of Nelson as a brash, trashy, manipulative sexpot who believed that she was entitled to (and got) everything and everyone she wanted: even her confession, given freely to police in a Pizza Hut restaurant, was anything but contrite. Moreover, Olsen records the recollections of many community members who saw Nelson for what she was, yet seemed oblivious to the adultery, theft and murder under their noses (Publisher’s Weekly). With all new foreword by — M. William Phelps, 2011, Investigative journalist, author of 20 books, creator and star of Investigation Discovery’s “Dark Minds.”
“Wonderfully researched…Searing and brilliant…A must-read!”– Ann Rule, the undisputed queen of True Crime
You know how the story ended…but do you know how it all started?
Within hours of giving birth to her sixth child, Mary Kay Letourneau had her baby daughter whisked from her arms. She was then shackled and returned to her jail cell. Just years ago, the pretty, personable Seattle schoolteacher was living a life many would envy– she had a handsome husband, four beautiful children, and a beloved following of students. Then she was accused of child rape, and her whole world turned upside down.
How did a 34-year-old married teacher fall in love with one of her sixth-grade students? Was it a complete lapse of judgment, or– as she contends– the meeting of two soulmates? Were the two planning to run away together– before police caught them in a parked car? Did the couple have illicit sex in every room of the Letourneau house, as the teenager told the tabloids? Read about the case that shocked the world and rocked the headlines– about the lonely life of Mary Kay Letourneau and the young object of her obsession, the boy who fathered two of her children.
Amazon.com Review: The tale seems ripe for tabloid exploitation: the fresh-faced blond elementary schoolteacher and mother of four just couldn’t keep her hands off that 13-year-old boy. Worse yet, Mary Kay Letourneau had become obsessed with the slight, Samoan teenager while he was still a student in her sixth-grade class–and he fathered two babies with her. Yet in the hands of true crime writer Gregg Olsen, If Loving You Is Wrong becomes a poignant profile of an emotionally stunted young woman tightly wound up in a web of lies too fragile to sustain the weight of her own compulsions.
The facade the Letourneaus presented to the world was that of a devoted, upwardly mobile young couple. In reality Steve and Mary Kay were on the verge of financial and emotional bankruptcy. They married because she’d become pregnant and appearances were everything to Mary Kay’s parents, ultra-conservative, family-values-promoting politician John Schmitz and his icy wife, Mary. Olsen, whose previous books include Abandoned Prayers and Black Widow, does a superior job with the story, interviewing Letourneau herself as well as friends and neighbors, researching and assembling the facts behind the lurid headlines in a nonjudgmental manner that allows readers to draw their own conclusions about the bigger issues at stake. Was Mary Kay Letourneau a pedophile, a child rapist, a female Humbert Humbert? Or was she, as she claims, a woman who’d found a soul mate and a true love that defied America.

Sex With the Chef

You won’t believe what goes on between the hot head chef and the young sexy waitress when the kitchen is closed.
Warning: “Sex With the Chef” contains sweet and spicy depictions of lovemaking in the hottest restaurant in town.
From “Sex With the Chef”:
“Toby unscrewed the cap of the honey jar and turned it upside down directly between Emma’s perky breasts. With nearly infinite slowness, the thick viscous substance followed the pull of gravity and drizzled across her chest. He moved the jar down the length of her body, leaving behind a shiny trail of the amber honey from her collarbones to . . . ”

Secret Journey to Planet Serpo

On July 16, 1965, a massive alien spacecraft from the Zeta Reticuli star system landed at the Nevada test site north of Las Vegas. Following a plan set in motion by President Kennedy in 1962, the alien visitors known as the Ebens welcomed 12 astronaut-trained military personnel aboard their craft for the 10-month journey to their home planet, Serpo, 39 light-years away. In November 2005, former and current members of the Defense Intelligence Agency–directed by Kennedy to organize the Serpo exchange program–came forward to reveal the operation, including details from the 3,000-page debriefing of the 7 members of the Serpo team who returned after 13 years on the planet. Working with the DIA originators of the Serpo project and the diary kept by the expedition’s commanding officer, Len Kasten chronicles the complete journey of these cosmic pioneers, including their remarkable stories of life on an alien planet, superluminal space travel, and advanced knowledge of alien technologies. He reveals how the Ebens presented the U.S. with The Yellow Book –a complete history of the universe recorded holographically, allowing the reader to view actual scenes from pre-history to the present. He explains how the Ebens helped us reverse-engineer their antigravity spacecraft and develop technology to solve our planet-wide energy problems–knowledge still classified. Exposing the truth of human-alien interaction and interplanetary travel, Kasten reveals not only that the Ebens have returned to Earth eight times but also that our government continues to have an ongoing relationship with them–a relationship with the potential to advance the human race into the future.

Secret Journey to Planet Serpo was a mind-blower’ for me. A well-written, easy read, with numerous b&w illustrations and 27 colour plates, I think it will test your powers for discerning its credibility and make you begin to wonder what else of monumental importance is being withheld from the citizens of earth. * Alan Glassman, New Dawn, November 2013 * Len Kasten’s work is abundant ad infinitum with similar and truthful mind bending revelations known only to insiders; this is a monumental accomplishment. No Ufology’s library is complete without Secret Journey to Planet Serpo. The book is a masterpiece!! Rating: 5 Stars all the way. * Art, UFOs, and Supernatural Magazine, August 2013 * I cannot overemphasize the importance of this book. Kasten has cast the bright light of scholarship on a subject that cries for understanding and will change our world and everything that we have come to believe about ourselves and our place in the universe. The shocking truth is, we are not alone and have never been alone. * Robert O. Dean, Command Sgt. Major, U.S. Army, retired *

Remembered (Bound by Time, #1)

Penny Money is a research writer by day and time traveler by night. Well … one night, anyway. And what a night it was! Even better — it could be the beginning of a romance that spans multiple decades and two continents.
Penny’s boss, literary wonder Macsen Yates, is sexy, debonair, and worldly. He selected her from hundreds of other candidates to help “Americanize” his works for the United States market. Did Mac choose Penny because of her knowledge of European history? Or was his choice simply destined to happen?
When Penny receives a postcard and small package from Mac, little does she realize that they will become the catalyst for a travel back in time to Wales, 30 years earlier, when Mac was a young man and the same age as Penny.
The friendship and sensual tension that has been building for over a year combusts into undeniable passion when Penny and Mac meet in person for the first time. Their amorous encounter makes Penny realize that her trip through time was no fluke. Complicating matters, Mac wants to rewrite history with Penny, and not the woman history says he will wed.
But can Penny make a promise to Mac, when her heart tells her that her journey has just begun?

The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy With Autism


You’ve never read a book like *The Reason I Jump*. Written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, it is a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within.

Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know. Questions such as: “Why do people with autism talk so loudly and weirdly?” “Why do you line up your toy cars and blocks?” “Why don’t you make eye contact when you’re talking?” and “What’s the reason you jump?” (Naoki’s answer: “When I’m jumping, it’s as if my feelings are going upward to the sky.”) With disarming honesty and a generous heart, Naoki shares his unique point of view on not only autism but life itself. His insights—into the mystery of words, the wonders of laughter, and the elusiveness of memory—are so startling, so strange, and so powerful that you will never look at the world the same way again.

In his introduction, bestselling novelist David Mitchell writes that Naoki’s words allowed him to feel, for the first time, as if his own autistic child was explaining what was happening in his mind. “It is no exaggeration to say that *The Reason I Jump* allowed me to round a corner in our relationship.” This translation was a labor of love by David and his wife, KA Yoshida, so they’d be able to share that feeling with friends, the wider autism community, and beyond. Naoki’s book, in its beauty, truthfulness, and simplicity, is a gift to be shared.
