Best-selling award-winning author Constance O´ Day-Flannery is the one true Queen of Time Travel Romance. Join her now in a story of a disillusioned young widow who returns to the past, caught, to her horror, in an unflattering lime green bridesmaid´s dress when she meets the man whose love is destined to be hers. Time After Time After existing in a fog since the death of her beloved husband, Kelly Brennan is suddenly ready to take control of her life. Only she didn´t expect her new life to begin in post-Civil War New Orleans. Kelly isn´t sure if she´s losing her mind or just enjoying a really good dream ... one chat comes complete with a man who looks strikingly similar to her late husband. Widower Daniel Gilmore is the epitome of the Southern gentleman: charming, handsome and with a devilish glint in his eye that calls to the dormant heart she´s locked away. In the years since Daniel´s wife passed away he has shuttered himself off from those dearest to him, and not even his precocious daughter Lizzie has been able to draw him out of his misery. But then Lizzie brings home a strange woman in a dreadful gown who speaks about odd things called ´´automobiles´´ and ´´telephones´´ - a woman who bears a remarkable resemblance to his wife. With a daughter in need of a mother and a heart in need of love Daniel yearns to keep Kelly by his side ... provided he can let go of the past long, enough to live in the present and convince Kelly that his present is where she belongs.... 1.

Life is quite complicated, isn´t it? Responsibilities, concerns, worries, chores, and errands everywhere you look and such a limited time to actually enjoy your life. Don´t you think you deserve a small break from all that stress and anxiety? Dive deep into the story of Caine Newman, a history professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Caine had always been fascinated with history, and he always imagined how the course of history could be altered by changing one random event. What if Hitler never took the reins and assumed power? What if President Kennedy was never assassinated? And that was only part of his uneasy and curious spirit. In fact, he always believed that he was meant for something more than simply teaching history. He thought he was destined to change history. And while this was true, he made the mistake of thinking he would simply make history in the close future. The possibility of going back to the future never even crossed his mind. Until one day, his colleague, physics Professor Henry Winston payed him a visit in the classroom. What´s more, he claimed he was a time traveler himself, having traveled back from the future. Will Caine accept the possibility of traveling to the past? What would he find if he actually ventured there? What if Caine actually met someone in the past? How could traveling to the past disrupt the timeline and cause serious consequences? Find out everything about Caine´s story in this time-traveling love story by author JH Atilson!

Born into the violence of South Bronx ghetto life, the comic pioneer of TV’s Good Times fame offers a hilarious and politically charged review of his career as one of television’s first hugely successful Black stars. From opening for the Black Panthers and getting his first Tonight Show spot to becoming the first ´´Black” TV sitcom star, having comedians David Letterman and Jay Leno writing jokes for him, recording number-one comedy albums, and opening for rock n’ roll bands in 50,000 seat stadiums, Walker’s career hit all the highs. Of course, celebrities seldom stay at such highs. But despite going from the cover of TV Guide to becoming a journeyman comedian, Walker’s story is one of courage and unbridled belief in oneself. He never crashed and burned like so many in his profession - notably fellow comedians like Richard Pryor and Freddie Prinze. Instead, he kept at his profession through 300 comedy gigs per year, remembering where he came from and where hard work had got him. He developed a view of the world through a conservative social lens, and as a black man in the entertainment industry he surprised many - and pissed off others – with his ´´conservative” views. In his stand-up routine in 1974, Jimmy frequently told this joke: ´´I think pretty soon there is going to be a black President. Inaugural theme be playing the ´Theme From Shaft´. Prez pulls up - white El Dorado, white bucket seats, bubble top. Prez gets out, tilts his beaver skin hat to the side, braids flowing down his shoulders, looks at the crowd and says, Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, I am very happy to be elected President of these great United States. But moreover, I am even happier to be elected the first black President of these great United States. Right now, I’d like to give you the Inaugural Address but first…the number for today: 7-5-6. You got it? Then you the vice president!” It´s 2011. We now have President Barack Oba 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jimmie Walker.

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of A Discovery of Witches - now a hit series streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder, and coming to television this April on AMC and BBC America - comes a novel about what it takes to become a vampire.On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one, and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus´s deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor - the young employee at Sotheby´s whom Marcus has fallen for - is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the 18th century. The shadows that Marcus believed he´d escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both - forever.A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, Time´s Convert channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the All Souls Trilogy instant best sellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries. 1.
