From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels comes an enthralling southern gothic saga about one woman's quest for the truth... When Vivien Walker left her home in the Mississippi Delta, she swore never to go back. But in the spring, nine years to the day since she’d left, Vivien returns, fleeing from a broken marriage and her lost dreams for children. What she hopes to find is solace with her dear grandmother who raised her, a Walker woman with a knack for making everything all right. Instead Vivien is forced into the unexpected role of caretaker, challenging her personal quest to find the girl she once was. But things will change again in ways Vivien cannot imagine. A violent storm has revealed the remains of a long-dead woman buried near the Walker home, not far from the cypress swamp that is soon to give up its ghosts. Vivien knows there is now only one way to rediscover herself—by uncovering the secrets of her family and breaking the cycle of loss that has haunted them for generations. READERS GUIDE INCLUDED
For more than twenty-five years, ever since he hijacked TWA flight 151 in June of 1969 from Oakland, California to Havana, Cuba, William Lee Brent has lived in Castro's Cuba. Long Time Gone is the unique memoir of a former high-ranking Black Panther (and ex-bodyguard to Eldridge Cleaver) who fled his native land to avoid standing trial on charges stemming from a shootout with the San Francisco police. With the publication of this book, Brent breaks his silence of a quarter century. "Bill Brent's Long Time Gone is a powerful testimony to the triumph of the human spirit. It tells an important – and previously untold – story." —David Hilliard, former chief of staff, Black Panther Party, and author of This Side of Glory
The right love is worth the wait... Calvin McKay can't understand his twin brother's rush toward the altar—until he lays eyes on the bride's younger sister. But she's far too innocent for him to pursue…and yet something about that little blonde tornado gets his blood pumping and his heart all twisted up. Kimi West is used to boys chasing after by her, but Cal McKay is a man—all man—and his hot kisses are like nothing she's ever experienced. But he's a rancher, tied to the land, and she can’t wait for the day she can escape from Wyoming and see the world. After a tragedy sends Kimi running from her family, Cal gives Kimi a place to stay—and oh so many tantalizing reasons to stay—while she sorts out her plans. Now she'll have to decide whether the adventure she wants is in a new frontier or right there by Cal's side. Please note: Long Time Gone is a NOVELLA, a slice of life in the Rough Riders world rather than the whole pie. BONUS! At the end of this novella you'll find an exclusive excerpt of Unbreak My Heart, the long-awaited love story that reunites Sierra Daniels McKay and Boone West from Gone Country...
Years after a friend was brutally murdered, Jo Becker is now married with a grown family, but when an old housemate moves nearby, Jo rekindles a relationship that takes her back to the past and threatens her future.
A candid chronicle of the rise, fall, and resurrection of an American generation--the children of rock 'n' roll who grew up righting authority, protesting the Vietnam War, and drifting into the new drug culture--"Long Time Gone is the personal story of a man who epitomized the highs and lows of his times. David Crosby was a rock-and-roll star twice: first with the Byrds and a second time with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Dubbed "the American Beatles" by the rock press, CSN&Y were enormously successful, but throughout his career Crosby was nurturing addictions to cocaine and heroin that would nearly kill him and eventually landed him in a Texas prison. His miraculous recovery from the grip of hard drugs and finding true love with his wife Jan, as well as a creative renaissance, all conspire to make "Long Time Gone an inspiring, if sobering, portrait of an era.
Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone-until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of" being" alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must've driven his lover away. Even with half a world between them, Prophet can't get the man out of his head. Maybe that's why he's in New Orleans in the middle of a hurricane, protecting Tom's aunt. But the only looter around is Tom, bursting back into Prophet's life. It turns out that Prophet's been stuck in "Tom's" head-and heart-too. Their explosive reunion gets even hotter when Tom is arrested for murder. As they fight to clear his name, they delve deep into his past, finding enemies among everyone they meet. Staying alive in such a dangerous world is hard enough, but they soon discover that fighting to stay together is the most difficult thing they've ever done.
