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

She has been known as the "kept woman," the "fancy woman," and the "other woman." She exists as both a fictional character and a flesh-and-blood human being. But what do Madame de Pompadour, Jane Eyre, and Camilla Parker-Bowles have in common? Why do women become mistresses, and is a mistress merely a wife-in-waiting, or is she the very definition of the emancipated, independent female? In Mistresses, Elizabeth Abbott intelligently examines the motives and morals of some of the most infamous and fascinating women in history and literature. Drawing intimate portraits of those who have—whether by chance, coercion, or choice– assumed this complex role, from Chinese concubines and European royal mistresses to mobster molls and trophy girlfriends, Mistresses offers a rich blend of history, personal biography, and cultural insight.

#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).

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.

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.

It was an extravagant celebration that night at the St. Regis hotel in Washington D.C. Bottles of Dom Pérignon champagne were being popped, and congratulations of high praises and honors were being given to me and my partner, Dr. Larry Pratt, for the discovery of a drug that could restore the health and minds of patients with Alzheimer’s. It was a night that no one was ever going to forget. I left the ballroom at around ten O’clock. As I walked to the elevator, I noticed the lobby was filled with people and laughter. I was going to my room to finally get a good night’s sleep. As I stood at the elevator door, waiting for it to open, I suddenly felt a strange sensation of danger closing in on me. That’s when it happened—something bumped into me. No, it wasn’t just something. It was more like an animal in heat. She came out of nowhere, and trust me, I would have noticed her anywhere. As she brushed her body past me, she whispered something in my ear. I wasn’t sure what she said, but somehow her breathless voice made my knees go weak. I turned to look at her through the crowd. She glanced back over her shoulder at me, our eyes met, and I suddenly felt sexually aroused. An alarm went off inside my head, and all my senses went into overdrive. As I stood there, watching in slow motion, her hips shifted from side to side. Her red backless dress shimmering in the light, she disappeared into the cocktail lounge. I could hear the piano playing. That’s when I looked at my watch and decided that I wasn’t so tired after all. I followed her inside and sat at the bar and ordered a brandy. I wondered if she was waiting for someone—maybe her boyfriend, her lover, who knows—but for obvious reasons, I didn’t think it was her husband she was waiting for. She looked beautiful in the candlelight. Her lips were full and sensuous, her eyes mesmerizing. She crossed her long legs, and the slit up the side of her dress parted, showing me just a hint of her thigh. She looked directly at me and smiled. It took everything I had to remember I was still married—or was I? My temperature was rising. I couldn’t take my eyes off her. I was like a moth being drawn to the flame. This was for real, and it was more dangerous than I could have ever imagined. She was irresistible, and like the sweet, sharp edge of obsession, I had to have her.
