Tales Of Infidelity And Redemption The Golden Pool from the Author: Peta Gentry. "If 50 Shades of Grey is for women who long to be dominated, then The Golden Pool is for those who long to be loved.""A very real family saga of betrayal and healing; paralleled by a Harry Potterish story. Add large dollops of very real and very explicit sex, an impish sense of humour, and deeply felt emotions and you have one of the best reads of my year.""Three really strong, sexy women; men who know their place (which is to give scrumptious sex with lots and lots of foreplay to their ladies); great storytelling with masses of twists and turns; a really believable (if slightly idealized family); and, in Amy, a beautifully drawn character we can live with from the age of five to her beautifully blooming maturity. What's not to like? Only small criticism; am I the only one to ever get cystitis?"A perfect family. A perfect marriage? Love, infidelity, betrayal - with one especially appalling and destructive consequence. Can the pieces be put back together again? The process of healing and redemption is a long and difficult one with many detours and deviations.Husband and father Nick's powerful tales of the Adventures of Wizard One-Leg, the Great Orc, Ircale, and the two Beautiful Young Princesses provide a counterpoint to the human tragedy surrounding the Pike family.The Golden Pool is the story of Nick, Claire, and their three children - Paul, Ellie and little Amy. It follows the family's journey through chaos and destruction, to rebuilding, redemption, healing, coming of age, with humour and truth.It is the first in a series of novels under the title Tales of Infidelity and Betrayal. The next will be Around the World in 1800 Days.Warning: this novel contains graphic descriptions of sex.

The Dragon Pool from the Author: Christopher Golden. Hellboy, a bloodred, cloven-hoofed demon raised by the United States government, is a top field agent for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. He questions the unknown -- then beats it into submission. In the upper reaches of the Himalayas, Hellboy's ex-girlfriend, archaeologist Anastasia Bransfield, believes she has found the location of the legendary "Dragon King Pool" -- thought to be the ancient dwelling of an evil dragon who inflicted horrific devastation on the land and its people. Every year the villagers would sacrifice a child to placate the beast, until one day an unlikely hero fought the dragon and won, bringing peace and prosperity to the land. But Anastasia's triumph at her discovery is short-lived. Soon unearthly creatures are seen lurking around the dig site, someone is sabotaging the excavation with dire results, and the young daughter of one of the dig leaders goes missing. It looks like a job for Hellboy -- but his toughest challenge might be putting his past with Anastasia behind him....

Golden State from the Author: Sichan Siv. It is the eve of his inauguration and President-Elect Bill Kartona is looking forward to the next twelve hours. Tomorrow, he will become the youngest person ever to be sworn in as president of the United States. With his wife asleep, Kartona answers a knock at the door, greets his national security adviser with a passionate kiss, leads her into the bathroom across the hall, and closes the door. A historic and potentially scandalous presidency is about to begin. The next day, when Kartona takes the oath of office, other leaders driven by greed and hunger for power pause and take note. China and Russia want control of the world’s largest mining resource. France is taking steps to rescue its former colony from being plundered by the nouveaux riches. While Kartona immerses himself in the various crises, his national security advisor tells him she knows the perfect person to help him defuse the tension among the four countries: Goldie Baume, a cowboy from West Texas. With a world war appearing imminent, Kartona has no choice but to follow her lead. But soon, the new president will have more problems to deal with than he ever imagined. In this political thriller, a president weakened by scandals must rely on a Texas cowboy to restrain the powerful leaders before they destroy each other and the entire planet. As a romance is rekindled between the cowboy and his former French lover, only time will tell if love will triumph over conflict.
