The After Dark Collection Book Excerpt:

A delicious collection of the enticing books The Engagement Gift, The Virgin Gift, and The Decadent Gift! The Engagement Gift... Some fantasies are better left unsaid. Besides, I don't need to act on every wild thought that flits through my imagination, not when my fiancé and I have the kind of life I've aways longed for -- passionate, intimate and oh so real. I can’t risk losing him, so I focus on building our life together as a couple. But the more insistent my thoughts become, the closer I get to telling him what I want most... *** The Virgin Gift I might still carry my V-card, but I know exactly what I want in a man. Smart, charming and oh-so-skilled. Too bad I haven't found him yet. But maybe he's found me. Because when my charming, laid-back, next-door neighbor discovers a secret list I keep, he volunteers to work through every single item on it. Including the last one -- at the end, we walk away and stay friends. I say yes to his offer, and that's when I discover another side to him. A side I adore. A side I crave. He's commanding, intense, and everything I've ever wanted. But as we check things off one by one, I find myself breaking the most important rule of all. And I have no idea what it will do to my heart. *** The Decadent Gift The rules of the game were simple. One weekend. We play our roles. Actually, we play lots of roles. I get the info I need for a secret work project. We go back to how we were. That’s what I proposed to handsome, clever, commanding Jake. That’s what he said yes to — this decadent gift of a weekend that would get me out of trouble. But that’s not what happened when our nights together in Vegas ended . . .

The Crouching Beast Book Excerpt:

As a first lieutenant in Bravo Company of the Third Battalion, 187th Infantry, Frank Boccia led a platoon in two intense battles in the Vietnamese mountains in April and May 1969: Dong Ngai and the grinding, 11-day battle of Dong Ap Bia--the Mountain of the Crouching Beast, in Vietnamese, or Hamburger Hill as it is popularly known. The Rakkasans, the 3/187th, are the most highly decorated unit in the history of the United States Army, and two of those decorations were awarded for these two battles. This vivid account of the author's first seven months in Vietnam gives special attention to the events at Dong Ap Bia, following the hard-hit 3/187th hour by hour through its repeated assaults on the mountain, against an unseen enemy in an ideal defensive position. It also corrects several errors that have persisted in histories and official reports of the battle. Beyond describing his own experiences and reactions, the author writes, "I want to convey the real face of war, both its mindless carnage and its nobility of spirit. Above all, I want to convey what happened to both the casual reader and the military historian and make them aware of the extraordinary spirit of the men of First Platoon, Bravo Company. They were ordinary men doing extraordinary things."

Murder in Notting Hill Book Excerpt:

The truth about one of Britain's most infamous race murders has never been revealed. At around midnight on May 17 1959, a white gang ambushed 32-year-old Antiguan carpenter Kelso Cochrane on a Notting Hill slum street. After a brief scuffle one of them plunged a knife into his heart. The impact was as profound as the aftershock of Stephen Lawrence's murder more than forty years later. The previous summer Notting Hill had been convulsed by race riots. The fascists Sir Oswald Mosley and Colin Jordan were agitating in the area. So the news of an innocent back man stabbed in west London reverberated from Whitehall to the Caribbean. And when the police failed to catch the killer, many black people believed it would have been different if the victim had been white. Murder in Notting Hill is a tale of crumbling tenements transformed into a millionaires' playground, of the district's fading white working class, and of a veil finally being lifted on the past. Part whodunnit, part social history, it reveals startling new evidence about the murder.

A sweeping history of the electric light revolution and the birth of modern America The late nineteenth century was a period of explosive technological creativity, but more than any other invention, Thomas Edison’s incandescent light bulb marked the arrival of modernity, transforming its inventor into a mythic figure and avatar of an era.

It is a quintessentially American story of ingenuity, ambition, and possibility in which the greater forces of progress and change are made by one of our most humble and ubiquitous objects.

Next Voyage Will Be Different Book Excerpt:

I am privileged to know Tom Henry personally, a man who has devoted much of his amazing life to the art of seafaring. His remarkable story of a young mansetting out on a traditional maritime career and then spending a great deal of his life at sea is sure to fascinate those addicted to old fashioned mariner's tales. It is a charming story of a once-common lifestyle that has now almost entirely disappeared. I recommend it highly. Joseph Balkoski, author of Omaha Beach: D-Day, June 6, 1944 "Life at sea is always a fascinating subject. With charm, wit, and a story teller's skill, Henry brings alive his decades long career as a merchant seaman with great stories about people, exotic places and the day to day business of a ship's officer at work and play. It is a tale that only an old sailor could tell. A terrific read for sea buffs and 'landlubbers' alike." Raymond J. Batvinis, PhD, author of The Origins of FBI Counter Intelligence Thomas E. Henry was born and raised on the south shore of Long Island, New York. There he attended the local Babylon schools until March 1945, when he left at age seventeen to serve on active duty in the U.S. Naval Reserve. During his year and a half in the Navy he achieved the rank of gunners's mate third class. Following his discharge from the service he attended, on the 'GI Bill' the Cathedral Scholl of Saint Paul, in Garden City, New York. He graduated in June 1947 with his high school diploma. In 1951 he graduated from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, which scholl readied him for a life in the United States Merchant Mariner. In 1985, at age fifty seven, and after thirty three years of service he retired. He had sailed as a ship's master with the United States Lines Company. For the following three years he served on periods of active duty in the Naval Reserve as a ship handling instructor at Little Creek, Virginia. He and Barbara, his devoted wife of over thirty years, reside in Stuart Florida, where Captain Henry is presently employed as an instructed at the well-known Chapman School of Seamanship.
