Book Summary: Have you felt that kiss of cozy warm sunshine whilst still enjoying the first rains? We might revel in those mesmerizing new showers albeit those comforting rays of sun shining radiantly beside them cast renewed beacons of hope, promise, and light, nevertheless. Rekha’s poems here are exactly that and much much more. A hot cup of coffee with baskets full of comfort, a small little tote of thoughtful emotions, a nook hidden In time casting life lessons of inspirational life morals and values. Her poems are non-conventional and stylish, exploring a myriad of emotions from hope, love, optimism, success to more sombre ones such as despair, heartbreak, depression, etc. Simultaneously, she has put soul to many of the everyday commonplace concepts which one might dwell or like to harp upon at leisure. This is her first creative attempt at poetry, her maiden step towards literary paths. From addressing sensitive issues in ‘And she departed’, or ‘Depression’, or ‘Thankless and vain’, to ballads of positivity and strivance in ‘Silent striver‘, ‘He sees all’, to an imaginative plethora of ‘What if?’, ‘The parallel universe‘, her writing comes across as original, uncharted territory. Her love poems like ’Then, Now, and Always,’ ‘To this day,’ etc. shall serenade the heartstrings of the reader compelling them to go back and hear the beats of their heart strum.

Book Summary: A gentle romance begins innocently enough in the stalls of a London theatre where Catherine is enjoying her ninth and Christopher his thirty-sixth visit to the same play. He is a magnificent young man with flame-coloured hair. She is the sweetest little thing in a hat. There is just one complication: Christopher is twenty-five, while Catherine is just a little bit older. Flattered by the passionate attentions of youth, Catherine, with marriage and motherhood behind her, is at first circumspect, but finally succumbs to her lover's charms. The engaging humour of this autobiographical novel blunts the bitter edge of irony in the hypocrisy of 1920s society.

Book Summary: Secrets, Tragedy, Courage, Love. Master of Illusion Book II continues the story of the tormented genius, Angel, and his childhood friend, Elise, the prima ballerina who once graced the stage as La Belle and now directs their own opera house, the Opéra Magique. Their lives ensue in an entanglement of secrets, subterfuge, tragedy and love through which they battle their fated hand. Though the skeletons of the past continue to haunt, the veil concealing the truth begins to fall. It is Paris,1892, and the Opéra Magique is riding a wave of unparalleled success, with the help of Sprite, the Master's popular, fairy-like assistant. Walking the fine line required to keep in abeyance the mutual passions of her star, the volatile magician known as the Master of Illusion, and her goddaughter, the beautiful comtesse de Villefontaine, Madame Dupont needs all her ingenuity to divert the jealous rage of the comte and the suspicions of Police Chief Captain Moreau. Few people know the truth behind the Master's identity, yet one of them is, all unwittingly, about to give him away. But as their opera house and lives are plunged, yet again, into unthinkable tragedy, fate thrusts Angel and Elise—the Master and Madame—onto a new path of discovery: a path that holds both alluring revelations and nightmares of untold suffering. Angel and Elise battle choices of life and death, of courage and sacrifice, as they finally discover the answers they've so longed for. But, in discovering the truth of the past, the truth about Angel and the truth about love, do they find the solace they so crave? Can Angel and Elise overcome the barriers of fate, or will they be destroyed in their determination to do so?

His deputy, Piers Hunt, is the only man in the diplomatic corps who knows of his superior’s death. Fearing a similar fate, he arrives in New York incognito, racing against those who would once again plunge the world into global conflict.

Book Summary: Breakout sensation Monica Murphy returns with a hot new contemporary romance—a heartfelt story of second chances, forgiveness, and redemption. Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me. . . . Praise for Three Broken Promises “The heat between these two is explosive. . . .

Book Summary: Marriage is in crisis. The divorce rate is high and both men and women have gravitated to roles that are unstable, unhealthy and unnatural. The thing that we desire the most seems to give the most turmoil. How can it be that God created marriage as the foundational relationship for society and yet it is the most difficult of relationships? How is it that God said, “It is not good for man to be alone”, yet every time man and woman get together their union brings more smoke than fire? Is it the two becoming one that creates the problem or the choices we make in marriage? God has a wonderful plan for marriage that carefully blooms into a delightful union when you choose Him as your guide. Every woman who desires a marriage “made in heaven” will appreciate Adrienne’s honest, open and real approach to the difficult areas of marriage. She shares real life experiences that inspire, encourage and re-affirm the value of womanhood and the beauty of holy matrimony.

Book Summary: Sustainability of the natural environment and of our society has become one of the most urgent challenges facing modern Americans. Communities across the country are seeking a viable pattern of growth that promotes prosperity, protects the environment, and preserves the distinctive quality of life and cultural heritage of their regions. The coastal zone of South Carolina is one of the most endangered, culturally complex regions in the state and perhaps in all of the American South. A Delicate Balance examines how a multilayered culture of environmental conservation and sustainable development has emerged in the lowcountry of South Carolina. Angela C. Halfacre, a political scientist, describes how sprawl shock, natural disaster, climate change, and other factors spawned and sustain—but at times also threaten and hinder—the culture of conservation. As Halfacre demonstrates, maintaining the quality of the environment while accommodating residential, commercial, and industrial growth is a balancing act replete with compromises. The book documents the origins, goals, programs, leaders, tactics, and effectiveness of a conservation culture. A Delicate Balance deftly illustrates that a resilient culture of conservation that wields growing influence in the lowcountry has become an important regional model for conservation efforts across the nation. A Delicate Balance also includes a foreword by journalist Cynthia Barnett, author of Blue Revolution: Unmaking America's Water Crisis and Mirage: Florida and the Vanishing Water of the Eastern U.S.

Book Summary: There’s a saying that goes: “where there’s smoke, there was fire”. Well I believe that in my case it is where there was love, pain and deceit, only hate can be left. Yes, because I hated him with all my being and that would never change. My nightmare, it had come back to my life, and how. One direct order from the President of the United States himself forced me to coexist twenty four seven with him, and very closely. My name is Isabella Farrel, I am a federal agent. My mission is to “protect the man I hate the most”. Hard, isn’t it?
