One phone call has the potential to change his life. One woman has the power to erase his past. One town can influence his future… Silas Savage is back in the last place he ever wanted to be, Fury Colorado—the town where his parents died—the place where his life became a nightmare. Silas is certain the only thing worth his time in the tiny mountain town is his brother Ryker, that is until he meets sassy single mother, Grace Faraday. She’s the slice of heaven in his living hell. She’s nothing he deserves but everything he wants. Grace Faraday understands what family is and what it isn’t. Giving up on love, she leaves Denver behind in search of a better life for her infant son in Fury. Grace is determined that she will never fall for a man again, but everything changes when Silas Savage blows into town like a storm and lands directly in her path. Silas is the exact opposite of what she wants, but he’s everything she needs. Can the love of a good woman save Silas? Can he become the man Grace needs him to be?

Haunted by his years at war, Boston paramedic Gael Dominic spends his time saving other people's lives. An empty house, a single friend, and living at work, Gael is not content with his existence, but he's close. Gael was expecting his overnight shift on Thanksgiving to be the same as always-manic crowds, heart attacks...until catastrophe strikes, and Boston's streets run with blood. On the run from an abusive and politically powerful father, Silas has been on the cold, mean streets of Boston for days, injured, hungry and alone. When he wakes up in the middle of a nightmare, he expects to die in the same alley he was calling home. Brought together by tragedy, Silas and Gael can't resist their attraction. Gael may have saved Silas, but it's his alleyway angel who brings Gael back to life. As Christmas approaches, Silas and Gael learn how to love, despite their pasts. And as Silas' past closes in, Gael learns the greatest gift he could ever give isn't something bought in a store, but freely given from the heart.

This third and final book in “The Bone Exchange” trilogy takes a roller-coaster ride into a dark world of debauchery, violence, and supernatural phenomena that tests the skills of Detective Slessa and Tom Isaacs to the limit. Armed with nothing but the copy of a fifteenth-century witness account of medieval torture and killing written by a long-dead scribe, Slessa finds several unnerving but accurate similarities to the case file. Risking everything they believe in and taking faith in both the ancient manuscript and the messenger, Slessa and Isaacs piece together the puzzle in an attempt to meet the New Order head on.

In the end, the Miami paper would nail it in their editorial. "This thing was about Alia, all about her, and her swim that fateful night." The story began 28 years ago with a reporter stationed at a Coral Gables hospital located hard by Biscayne Bay. It concerned the mysterious death of a pregnant Honduran female and a deadly curse they say followed her from the Bay Islands. Alia, descendant of a 17th-century pirate and a woman taken from a captured slaver, was island nobility but chose to flee her family and an arranged marriage to be with the man she loved. Her daughter lived. Rumor had it that it was predestined the newborn would carry the curse, pass it to her surviving firstborn female offspring, then die. So it would travel, daughter to daughter, down through the generations until the bloodline was broken. The attending doctor filled in the required blanks of the death certificate and moved on, duty complete, official cause of death listed as cardiac arrest. Then, as is often the case in legends of cursed bloodlines, the tale sank into the tapestry of local lore. Now, after years of silence, it surfaces, exploding into the public consciousness. Serena, woman child of Alia, must now face her mother's legacy--and break the curse or die.

The Land of Nod is based on a true store of the life and times of Jerrell Dean Thomas. Born after the Civil War in north east Texas, Jerrell Dean Porter was the only daughter of Robert Terrell Porter a wealthy liberal Christian Plantation owner who was also a former slave owner, and Louisa Love (Lou) a 15 year old former slave girl from the Porter Plantation. Because of her appearance, and an elaborate deception, Jerrell Dean Porter passed for white while being raised by her aunt Pearlee. She would eventually choose love over privilege and fully embrace the ramifications of her choice. It’s a story about love and lust, of loyalty and betrayal, of evil and kindness, tolerance, compassion, respect and hope. It’s a story about the slow progress of fairness and personal freedom against tremendous and formidable obstacles like constant threats of violence, racism, sexism and homophobia. This entertaining story is full of colorful characters with a wide variety of twists and unexpected turns.

Based on K. Barth’s definition of faith and R. Bultmann’s existentialist theology, J. H. Mazaheri has attempted to reveal G. Eliot’s profound religious and spiritual quest by focusing on the short but powerful novel, Silas Marner. The critic believes that her thought in the area of religion and theology has not been appreciated enough by critics, and that a postmodern reading is necessary in order to understand it. So, through a close textual reading, the author shows not only the affinities G. Eliot had with Coleridge and Wordworth, already mentioned by others, but also with Schleiermacher and Kierkegaard. The novelist clearly distinguishes between religion and superstition: if she strongly rejects the latter, she believes in the reality and good aspects of the former. Indeed she demythologizes Christianity in a positive way, and implicitly offers a new definition of religion. On the other hand, although she admired and translated Feuerbach’s The Essence of Christianity, she differed from him as much as she did from Strauss, whom she also translated. This essay on Silas Marner proposes, thus, a new approach to G. Eliot’s thought, while stressing the qualities of her art, especially in the way she uses allegory, irony, and free indirect speech.
