Although her job is hard and often quite dull, Anna remains happy with here green parrot that brings colors to her life. Melanctha focuses upon the distinctions and blending of race, sex, gender, and female health.

The Gentle Lena follows the life of Lena, a German girl brought to Bridgepoint by a cousin. Lena begins her life in America as a servant girl, but is eventually married to Herman Kreder, the son of German immigrants. Both Herman and Lena are marked by extraordinary passivity, and the marriage is essentially made in deference to the desires of their elders. Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was an American novelist, poet, playwright and art collector, best known for Three Lives, The Making of Americans and Tender Buttons. Stein moved to Paris in 1903, and made France her home for the remainder of her life. Picasso and Cubism were an important influence on Steins writing. Her works are compared to James Joyces Ulysses and to Marcel Prousts In Search of Lost Time.

Bored with retirement, an ex-spy challenges his old agency to a game. Miles Kendig is one of the CIAs top deep-cover agents, until an injury ruins him for active duty. Rather than take a desk job, he retires. But the tawdry thrills of civilian life-gambling, drinking, sex-offer none of the pleasures of the intelligence game. Even a Russian agents offer to go to work against his old employers seems dull. Without the thrill of unpredictable conflict, Kendig skulks through Paris like the walking dead. To revive himself, he begins writing a tell-all memoir, divulging every secret he accumulated in his long career. Neither CIA nor KGB can afford to have it in print, and so he challenges them both: Until they catch him, a chapter will go to the publisher every week. Kendigs life is fun again, with survival on the line.

Katerina Jacob hat mehr als 33 Jahre ihres Lebens auf der Straße verbracht. Von Quakenbrück bis Waldkraiburg, von Lennestadt bis Vöcklabruck tourte sie mit verschiedenen Theateraufführungen durch die Provinz. Ein interessanter, aber auch ein harter Job, in dem man oft an seine Grenzen stößt - sowohl mental als auch körperlich. Katerina Jacob erzählt in ihrer unverwechselbaren humorvollen Art von all den absurden, komischen, schockierenden und außergewöhnlichen Dingen, die sie auf ihren Tourneen erlebt hat. Ob es ein Schwert ist, das sich während eines Duells auf der Bühne selbstständig macht und als gefährliches Geschoss ins Publikum fliegt, oder ihr ausgeklügeltes System, um mit der Hand gewaschene Unterwäsche über Nacht auf dem Hotelheizkörper wieder trocken zu bekommen. Ganz zu schweigen von Pannen, Hängern und Sex auf roten Pumps. Nach ihrem erfolgreichen Erstlingswerk Oh (weia) Kanada hat Katerina Jacob erneut ein unterhaltsames und einzigartiges Buch geschrieben, das nicht nur für ihre Fans eine Pflichtlektüre ist, sondern für alle, die schon immer einmal wissen wollten, wie es hinter den Kulissen eines Theaters wirklich zugeht. Katerina Jacob, geboren 1958 in München, stammt aus einer Schauspielerdynastie. Vom Großvater, über Onkel, Tanten und Nichten bis hin zu ihrer berühmten Mutter Ellen Schwiers, die 1980 das Tourneeunternehmen Das Ensemble gründete. Katerina Jacob wurde dem breiten Publikum vor allem durch TV-Serien wie Alle meine Töchter, Samt und Seide, Polizeiruf 110 und Der Bulle von Tölz bekannt. 2015 erschien ihr erstes Buch Oh(weia) Kanada, das den Sprung auf die Spiegel-Bestellerliste schaffte. Katerina Jacob ist verheiratet, hat eine Tochter und zwei Enkelkinder. Sie lebt und schreibt abwechselnd in Kanada, auf Antigua und den Rest der Zeit verbringt sie am Starnberger See mit ihren fünf Hunden.

Cliff House may be haunted, but no ghost is as scary as the women who live there. Holly Howe is just beginning to get traction in the cutthroat world of New York modeling when a car accident ruins her good looks forever. She retreats to the backwoods of Canada, to recuperate in her brother's ramshackle country house. Howe Hill is a wreck - dusty, ugly and utterly lacking in modern facilities - and her brother is no more hospitable. When she hears of a job in town taking care of an ancient invalid, Holly leaps on it. If nothing else, Cliff House must have indoor plumbing. Eerie by day, the invalid's mansion is terrifying by night. The other housekeeper is convinced it's haunted by the old woman's husband, but Holly fears no poltergeist. It's the old widow in the upstairs room that frightens her - and the secrets that lurk behind her dull, silver eyes... Review quotes: The epitome of the 'cozy' mystery. - Mostly Murder.

Shore Leave - Book 3 of Fantasy Charters:
2,55 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Chartering is an iffy business and when theres not enough chartering work to pay the bills Lateenya has to give Roger indefinite shore leave. Her brother Tommy finds him a job doing boat work at the marina for a couple. The wife is hot and she s much more interested in finding out what Roger can do to her than any work he can do on the boat. She initiates the action with her husband nearby. The action continues in the evenings, with Tommy taking him to a club where they connect with some women tourists eager for a smoking time, and he Tommy give them bareback pleasure in some steamy interracial group sex. ----- PG Excerpt ----- Lateenya turned the helm over hard and Fantasy luffed up beautifully. She was a sweet-handling catamaran and Lateenya had a light and knowing touch at the helm. The Captain knew her stuff. As I waited for her to bring the boat alongside at our slip, I watched her work. I always enjoy watching the lithe body of a hot woman, and a first rate skipper at work is a joy to behold. My good fortunate was that Lateenya was both ... a hot woman and a great skipper. She was also my boss, owner and Captain of the boat, and good friend. Even for a first-rate skipper with a good boat, charter work is a tough way to make a living. The day charter we were returning from was a case in point. It hadnt been hard work, but routine, dull and not that profitable. It was what we usually called a geezer cruise. Older people hired us to take them on a genteel and leisurely sail around the island. They wanted gentle breezes and a drink with an umbrella in it. They looked forward to stops for lunch and play in exotic bays where they could take pictures of themselves having fun in the sun that they could use in tormenting relatives and friends stuck in the winter snows back home. They wanted to have a great, but routine time. As I ran the mooring lines to the cleats on the dock, Lateenya was already helping the couple who had been our guests on the boat for two days back step onto the dock. They were nice people and it seemed like they had a great time. We had been lucky, catching a stiff breeze that filled the mainsail and took us out to a small rock, grandly named Bottle Island, in less than two hours. We anchored in a bay of beautifully clear water and our guests swam and snorkeled. Midday we took them ashore in the inflatable dinghy, fed them a picnic lunch on the beach, with wine, and then we came back. Everything had been perfect. Perfect and boring. The guests had come to the islands for the tranquil, picture postcard idea of sailing in the tropics. They had no interest in the lusty vibrancy of the place. Of course we cheerfully obliged them for that is how we earned our pay. Cruises just like this one were the staple of our livelihood. They were our normal day at the office. Our vision (mine as well as Lateenyas) for the business was of a different kind of charter. Much different. Much hotter. What both Lateenya and I had in mind, and Ill admit it often seemed more of a dream than a business plan, had far more of an edge to it. Lateenya was a vibrant person, filled with a love for the great joys of life. She wanted a business that was dynamic and with a lot more sensuality. When we sailed by ourselves we liked to push the boat to its limits. In doing charters, we wanted adventurous clients. Ideally they wouldnt mind things that were a bit edgier. Better if they had vivid imaginations and oversized libidos. Yes, our fantasy was clients who were as interested in exploring other people as the coral reefs. Youd think that would be an easy thing to set up. But getting fantasy charters wasnt simple. I wasnt sure if it meant that people with money lacked imagination and a zest for life, or if we just werent connecting with them. I dont mean we didnt get some erotic situations happening, but there wasnt a trend. We didnt really see how to go after that market.
