Alexis Downing is beautiful, smart, and focused on her master’s thesis. She seems to have it all, but the secrets of her past have left her broken and devoid of feeling. As a result, she regards men and sex as necessary inconveniences until she meets Justin Simmons, a handsome scientist from Chicago. He invites her to engage in a one-night stand. No strings. She just needs to do what he says and relinquish her control.

Intrigued, Alexis decides to take a risk.

Through Justin’s guidance, she experiments with bondage and submission. It’s her first time and the liaison leaves her wanting more. An agreement is made and Justin takes her on a journey of pleasure and pain that leaves her breathless, yet stronger than ever before. In each lesson, she learns about trust and humility. In each session, her emotional self emerges a bit more. They explore every aspect of her evolving sexuality. As she awakens to pleasure she’s never experienced, her boundaries expand. She begins to understand that submission brings power. Power that she will cling to as the secrets of her past are revealed.

Libertine Awakenings is the psychosexual odyssey of Alexis Downing. Filled with smoldering, graphic sex, mystery, and romance, Libertine Awakenings is bound to please and entice—even without a safe word.

By Drew Bridges

The Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in the seventh game of the 1955 World Series in the greatest baseball game ever played. The second-greatest baseball game ever played took place Saturday, June 29, 1957. No Yankees, Giants, Dodgers, Cardinals, or Red Sox were there. The game played out in author Drew Bridges’s hometown of Hildebran in western North Carolina. Two teams of boys, ten to fifteen years old, faced off on the high school baseball diamond, no uniforms and no organized league. Bridges played second base, his brother played third, and their dad coached the team.

In this memoir, Bridges tells the story of that afternoon of baseball and how it came to be through his recollections and his father’s wartime letters to his mother who was pregnant with their first child. It shares the words of an ordinary American serviceman who is dreaming about a life beyond war.

Field of Dreams meets A League of Their Own meets The Sandlot in this story of a soldier’s return home from World War II and his work with others in the community to build a youth league baseball program. The Second-Greatest Baseball Game Ever Played shares the game of baseball through the eyes of a ten-year-old and shows how this game captured the heart and soul of a community and became so vital to all.

By Elisabeth Amaral
The mid-1960s through the mid-1970s was a heady, turbulent time. There was a lot going on back then, and author Elisabeth Amaral was in the middle of it all: the fights for women’s rights, racial equality, a music revolution, be-ins, love-ins, riots in the streets, the rage against the Vietnam War, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll. It was an amazing time to be young. In Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup, Amaral shares her recollections of those times. She narrates a coming-of-age story about herself and her husband as they embarked on an improbable journey of self-discovery. They gave up their jobs, moved with their infant son from New York City to Boston, unexpectedly started a children’s boutique, and soon opened a popular restaurant in Harvard Square. With sincerity and humor, Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup offers a personal and revealing account that reaches out to those who find themselves striving to make a relationship work that, by its very nature, may be doomed. But this story is also one of friendship—and of finding the courage to move on. Praise for Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup “In her intimate and humorous memoir, Liz Amaral reveals the challenges of a young family establishing a home in Cambridge amid the tumult of the late 1960s. You will discover the disconcerting truth about her marriage and the painful path she takes to find herself again. A true adventure of the heart.” —Kathrin Seitz, writer, producer, and coach

“In this stunning collection Sander Zulauf makes a convincing bid to become our American Bashō. Poem after brief poem struck me right between the eyes, with shocks of recognized truth.”

In 1942, in the midst of World War II, three factions struggle for power and control over Serbia: the Royalists, the Partisans, and the Nazis. For those living there, life was put on hold indefinitely while they coped daily with the terrorization of war—an especially disheartening situation for the country’s young people.

Fifteen-year-old Miriana, an only child, lives in a small, two-bedroom house in Bela Palanka, Serbia, with her parents, who farm and run a saw and gristmill. Their tiny home now accommodates her mother’s sister and nephew, who have been forced to evacuate from German-occupied Belgrade. Miriana’s aunt is frequently called upon by the Germans to translate for them—a task made more stressful by the fact that the family is also hiding a Partisan soldier in the cellar of the house. Being caught means certain death. Meanwhile, Miriana’s best friend, Stefan, supports his widowed mother and aging grandparents on a nearby farm; he resents having to abandon his aspirations for an education and his passion for the violin to run the farm.

Their existence is fraught with the angst of evening curfews, blackout curtains at night, unforeseen air raids, and conflict with the Nazis, but family, friends, and small pleasures propel them through a war that threatens their happiness and their lives on a daily basis.

Caution, your dreams may be closer than they appear.

Maurice Summerlin is a frustrated writer who plans a short vacation in Spain to escape his routine life and ponder his stalled career. Soon after arriving, a sudden rainstorm causes a chance meeting with Claire, an aging American traveler, who convinces him to join her on a journey to a remote fishing village on Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Maurice soon discovers that the best adventures are never planned.

After Claire leads him to an enchanting inn called Asilomar, he learns he is one of many wistful travelers who are on daring pursuits to fulfill their dreams. Maurice’s unintended arrival is accompanied by fear and self-doubt, but it is not long before he transforms from observer to participant. His new friend, Claire, proves she’s not afraid of mortality but dares to race it to the finish line.

Julian, Asilomar’s host, is determined to inspire his guests to risk comfort and security in exchange for exhilaration and fulfillment. But for all of his efforts he may just make the ultimate sacrifice. Euphrates, Julian’s best friend and assistant, lives in a silent world. Yet while he quietly helps to inspire those around him he yearns for the love which has eluded him.

The Guestbook at Asilomar is the engaging tale of one man’s adventurous quest during which he, along with other guests at this unconventional Spanish retreat, discovers the power of dreams and how life may best be spent in pursuit of fulfilling them.
