“...his eyes met hers in the mirror. They were dark and smoldering, like the purest of blue flame. And in her own eyes was the glassy sheen of desire.” Arden Gentry went to the lush island of Maui for the specific purpose of ingratiating herself into Drew McCasslin’s world. The dashing widower, who had bitterly grieved the death of his wife, is ready to tackle life again and believes that his meeting with Arden is fortunate happenstance. He and his young son, Matt, are drawn to Arden’s warmth and tenderness, and both open their wounded hearts to her. But even as the passion between Drew and Arden intensifies and points toward love, she’s harboring the secret of their inextricable bond...which could also rip them apart.

The Book of Secrets is a unique manuscript that aims to help its reader focus on different mindful thoughts for each day of the year. Each day's entry includes a focus point and that point is emphasized and supported by specific citations from The Bible. The author hopes to invite the reader to explore different aspects of their life, and to find meaning and support for that exploration through God's words. Each day is structured with a thought starter, and at least one Bible reference to support the idea that this thought starter is not unique, but rather something that originates from God's words. The format of this manuscript is engaging. The daily entries give the reader a new thought to ponder each day. The inclusion of a Bible citation further solidifies the importance of that thought, and gives the reader the motivation to think deeply about that prompt, as well as feel comfort knowing that God's words support this thought.

Foremost among Japanese literary classics and one of the world's earliest novels, the Tale of Genji was written around the year A.D. 1000 by Murasaki Shikibu, a woman from a declining aristocratic family. For sophisticaion and insight, Western prose fiction was to wait centuries to rival her work. Norma Field explore the shifting configurations of the Tale, showing how the hero Genji is made and unmade by a series of heroines. Professor Field draws on the riches of both Japanesse and Western scholarship, as well as on her own sensitive reading of the Tale. Included are discussions of the social, psychological, and political dimensions of the aesthetics of this novel, with emphasis on the crucial relationship of erotic and political concerns to prose fiction. Norma Field is Assistant Professor of Far Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Tuesday, 9:35 a.m. To do list: 1.Try to smile when people mention my backstabbing, lying, ex-boyfriend, Daniel. 2.Ply my ugly cat, Dexter, with some catnip--the good stuff--to keep him away from my last fur-free Hugo Boss suit. 3.Decide whether or not having a baby with my best friend Gretchen is the craziest, stupidest, most insane, incredible thing I will ever do. At thirtysomething, Blaine Dunhill has a great career in fashion advertising, a fab NYC apartment, and some loyal friends that he's trying to share amicably with his ex, a famous soap star. Working in the big-time cosmetics world is all about glamour and artifice ("Like Barbies that can talk"), but what the self-professed nice guy from Wisconsin really wants is something and someone real to come home to. And then his best friend Gretchen makes him a really tempting offer: Since neither one of them has found the real thing yet, why don't they start a family together? Suddenly, as life becomes a whirl of ultrasounds, online baby registries, baby names (Civil Liberty, anyone?), and other adjustments, Blaine discovers something surprising: No one is more attractive than an expectant father. Now, in the wacky, gossipy world of fashion and celebrity, where coming out has never been more "in," and the words "gay dad" are synonymous with "way hot," Blaine is in for the wildest ride of his life...and a shock that will change everything...

This book describes an encounter of the author with the Goddess. The author also tells of some of the events that preceded and followed it. In particular, he tells of his changed perception of the world. He could see then, and sometimes can still see, the divinity of women. (They are divine because they are like the Goddess). He knows with a intuitive certainty that the Goddess is about to make her advent once again, and that when that happens, the establishment of a uviversal matriarchy will be the inevitable result. This book is about a goddess of sublime beauty and power, and not about the God of our fathers. It is about the Goddess the human race first knew, the Great Goddess who was worshipped so ardently and for so long by our forebears. Now at long last is returning to walk among her children again. The signs of her coming are manifold, clear as the sun to see for all whose eyes have been opened. Our ancestors knew Her intimately. She was loved and adored by countless millions of people: whole nations worshipped Her; vast empires trembled in fear and joy at the slightest manifestation of Her unspeakable potency and magnificence. Yet few in these darker ages know anything about Her. She is thought to have vanished forever, leaving nothing of Her former cult behind, save a few references scattered in ancient authors, a few statues hidden in museums--mere skeletal remains of her former living glory. Though what I have to report is immemorially ancient, it seems as new to me--as it will to many others in this age--as if it had been newly born. Old does not mean decrepit, and what is truly perennial or immortal cannot wither or fade with time. Ancient and eternal but forever young and fair, the Goddess lives and will never die. "In all, the book possesses great possibilities. It's unique, and possibly the first to recount a personal experience with the Goddess by a man, throughout an entire book. The Goddess experience has been alluded to previously by men but not in a whole book, and not with the slant provided by Alex MacLeod."

A historical novel about the most unlikely of lovers, interwoven with the mysticism of the Jewish occult. Frances Sherwood brings to life the experience of the Jewish community during a period of oppression and rebirth. Set in seventeenth-century Prague, The Book of Splendor is an adventure-filled romance stocked with court intrigue and political tension, including the machinations of the rival Ottoman Empire, the religious controversies of Protestantism, and the constant threat of violence to the Jewish community. At the heart of the novel is Rochel, a bastard seamstress who escapes poverty through an arranged marriage to the tailor Zev, but falls in love with Yossel, the Golem created by Rabbi Loew to protect the Jewish community. Meanwhile, Emperor Rudolph II puts the safety of all Prague at risk in his mad bid for an elixir of immortality. The Book of Splendor is an epic tale reminiscent of Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, and a love story as unlikely as Tracy Chevalier's Girl with a Pearl Earring. Reading group guide included.

Frieda Lawrence once remarked, «Nobody seems to have an idea of the quality of Lawrence's and my relationship, the essence of it.... The deep attraction was there and that was what counts.» This insightful and original study investigates how one of the finest literary minds of the twentieth century experienced deep sexual attraction. In close readings of all of D. H. Lawrence's major novels, Douglas Wuchina charts the growth of sexual attraction between Lawrencian couples as it affects both body and spirit. The theoretical framework is not Foucault's or Lacan's or Bakhtin's but Lawrence's own, with frequent reference to his innovative theory of the chakras and his rejection of modern partnership marriage in favor of «blood» attraction. Drawing on a variety of sources, psychological and sexological in addition to literary - this is one of the first studies to make extensive use of revealing drafts that have only recently become available in the Cambridge edition of Lawrence's works - Destinies of Splendor persuasively argues that the familiar strategies of Freudian pathologization and feminist denigration of Lawrence are not viable and that it is possible to reaffirm Lawrence's romantically sensitive vision of the sexual bond between man and woman.
