Author: Daniel Silva
#1 New York Times Bestseller From Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author, comes a modern masterpiece of espionage, love, and betrayal She was his best-kept secret … In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West—a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power. Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance. Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century’s greatest act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless. Fast as a bullet, hauntingly beautiful, and filled with stunning double-crosses and twists of plot, The Other Woman is a tour de force that proves once again that “of all those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star).

Eric Jerome Dickey strides boldly over the minefield that is modern marriage. The central couple's biggest challenge is timing: He works days; she works nights. Instead of growing together, they're rapidly drifting apart, coexisting on stolen phone calls from work, punctuated by occasional bedroom encounters that leave them both feeling even emptier and more alone. When she finds out about his affair-and starts her own-the delicate fabric of their marriage is torn irrevocably asunder. Or is it? In Dickey's expert hands, what begins as a seemingly unforgivable betrayal segues into the sexy and searing story of a man and a woman at a pivotal turning point in their relationship. Only time will tell whether they'll let it all go...or can hold on to the love that drew them together in the first place.

A Mother's Guide to Raising Her Son to Love a Wife and Lead a Family
Author: Sheri Rose Shepherd
What Kind of Husband Will Your Son Grow Up to Be? His is a generation of boys who have better relationships with their Game Boxes, i-Pods, televisions, and computers than they do with their families. His understanding of marriage is that it has little hope for success, witnessing a fifty percent divorce rate both inside and outside of the church. His world is one where pornography is no longer a hidden shame, but encouraged as entertainment. Can you raise your son to one day love, lead, and protect a wife and family in a world like this? The answer is yes. The heartbeat of this book is to give you the tools to help your son become a tender warrior who will one day fight for his family, a godly husband who will faithfully love his wife, and a leader who will be a man of his word. The time is now to take your love, tears, prayers, and influence and pour them into his future. Even if our world does not change its moral fiber, you can influence your son and bring hope to the next generation. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime—yours. Reviews “Not only is this an amazing concept, but it meets an urgent need for every mother of boys.” Lisa Bevere, speaker and author of Fight Like a Girl and Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry “I have three sons, two stepsons, two son-in-laws, and nine grandsons! Any help I can glean to give me more wisdom is welcome. I would have welcomed more help like this when I was a young mother raising my young men for ‘the other woman.’” LeeAnn Rawlins, Coauthor, To Love Again Story Behind the Book When the manager of a large Christian bookstore told Sheri Rose Shepherd that readers of the popular His Princess TM series were futilely looking for material about raising their sons to be godly future husbands, she knew she could help. “Think about how much farther all men would be in their marriages if their moms had trained them how to one day love and understand their wives,” says Sheri Rose . “We can take all the mistakes we’ve made in our lives and use them to teach our sons the right way to live. And we can use our most powerful weapon of all—our prayers—to fight for them.” From the Hardcover edition.

Almost half of all married men, and slightly fewer married women, admit to having had at least one affair. This is the book for the woman who finds herself involved with such a married man! This is absolutely not a "how to become a mistress" book. It offers help to those who are already finding themselves in this situation so everyone involved survives the experience as unharmed as possible under the circumstances, especially the "Other Woman" herself. Insightful, at times funny, and always straight to the point, this book is a "must read" for every "Other Woman!" And let us not forget that there is a betrayed wife and a cheating husband for every Other Woman. This book would be an eyeopener for many of those, too.

This book is a must-read for any woman who wants to renew and revive her relationship. “Be the Other Woman” is a deliciously-naughty but surprisingly wise little tome. I suspect the only thing more fun than reading it is the real-life application of its instructive advice. —Tamara Caulder-Richardson Though written in an engaging, humorous “girlfriend” style, it takes its general purpose and subject matter quite seriously. This essential manual covers a host of topics, ranging from the timeless power of spontaneous flirtation to romantic “dates” to blush-inducing sexual techniques in the bedroom (or anywhere else you fancy). In between lie the finer points of lingerie-wearing, mood-setting, phone seduction, realized fantasies, edibles and aphrodisiacs, pole-dancing, the use of—well, you’ll just have to find out when you read the book. You won’t be disappointed. —Janis Love This cheeky guide to keeping your man from looking elsewhere for love lives up to its risqué cover image, offering advice on everything from what to wear around the house (something pretty—at least once a week; matching bra and underpants—always; and no “god-awful” granny panties—ever!), the power of a languorous kiss (“there’s a reason it costs more to kiss a prostitute”). —Clarion Review
