Rae Grayson's a cop. She works Venice Beach, and patrols the sand trying to keep the public safe from those who work the beach selling drugs - like Joey Jackson. The police want to see him locked up for dealing, but her reasons for wanting to put him away are a lot more personal, and Joey knows it. When Rae sets her sights on him, Joey prepares to take her down before she or her Los Angeles PD comrades can tag him, but Joey isn't ready for such determined interference. He's not ready for Scott Logan to come to Rae's rescue. Rae's not sure she is either. An ex-hood, a modern-day bounty hunter and no one to mess with, Scott stumbles into Rae's life in the middle of a hold up, and tangles up her emotions even as he pulls at her heart. She wants to send him away. She doesn't need a man complicating her life especially with Joey back in town, but Scott isn't leaving. He doesn't intend to let anyone hurt Rae, but will he be hurt himself when she threatens to run away with his heart?

From the film’s record-break budgets to the enmity between director and producers, the story behind the making of Superman is inherently dramatic. Marking 40 years since the film’s commercial release, the book presents original interview transcripts with the cast and crew that, when read together, serve as a rare insider account of an acclaimed blockbuster whose production was steeped in controversy. The interviewees cast light on the daily reality on set, as well as the film’s release and reception with refreshing candour. Beginning with the film’s very inception, the interviews provide valuable insights into the practical logistics and day-to-day realities of mounting a big-budget production, at a time when Hollywood action blockbusters were only just emerging. For comic-book fans, film enthusiasts and cinema and production scholars alike, Superman: The Movie paints a picture of mid-late 1970s Hollywood filmmaking, to reveal the budgets, personalities and expertise that went in to making this landmark of Hollywood cinema. The individuals interviewed in the book are cast members Margot Kidder (Lois Lane), Marc McClure (Jimmy Olsen), Sarah Douglas (Ursa), Jack O’Halloran (Non), and Jeff East (Young Clark Kent); and producers Ilya Salkind and Pierre Spengler. An interview with the film’s director, Richard Donner, in scheduled.

Two stand alone, funny romantic suspense books by USA Today bestselling author Elise Sax. Bounty: Abby Williams just got a promotion. The job in London comes with perks aplenty, including a trip to an exotic island to review a five-star resort with poolside service. Unfortunately, on day two of her vacation, Abby finds herself bound and stuffed into a burlap bag, on her way across two continents. Iain Brodie is a muscle-bound mercenary. He just helped a despotic dictator take over an island. He’s also Abby’s kidnapper, and he has his own problems. Framed for a murder he didn’t commit and a boss who’s out to get him, he has to face facts: Early retirement is out of the question and Abby Williams looks damned good in a burlap bag. Elise Sax delivers another hilarious page-turner. Bounty is a sexy, wild ride, and is certain to appeal to fans of Romancing the Stone and National Treasure. Switched: Debra’s wedding day ended when the groom jilted her three hours before the ceremony, leaving her with a stiff catering bill and a broken heart. Now, he’s off to Bora Bora on a one-man honeymoon, and she’s on the couch in her wedding dress, watching Christmas movies and eating her way through the corner market. Inspired by her movie marathon, she decides to do a home exchange on a Spanish island to get over her ex. But Debra’s life is nothing like the movies, and her home exchange goes terribly wrong. Stranded, she draws the attention of a hunky cafe owner who might know more than he admits about the disappearances of some local women. If Debra’s not careful, she may be the next one to disappear.

The American Comic Book Chronicles continues its ambitious series of FULL-COLOR HARDCOVERS, where TwoMorrows' top authors document every decade of comic book history from the 1940s to today! Kurt Mitchell and editor Roy Thomas composed this volume about the “Golden Age” of the comic book industry, a period that presented the earliest adventures of such iconic super-heroes as Batman, Captain Marvel, Superman, and Wonder Woman. It was a time when America’s entry into World War II was presaged by the arrival of such patriotic do-gooders as Will Eisner’s Uncle Sam, Harry Shorten and Irv Novick’s The Shield, and Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s Captain America. It was when teenage culture found expression in a fumbling red-haired high school student named Archie Andrews. But most of all, the first five years of the 1940s was the age of the “packagers” when studios headed by men like Harry A Chesler, Will Eisner, and Jerry Iger churned out material for a plethora of new comic book companies that published the entire gamut of genres, from funny animal stories to crime tales to jungle sagas to science-fiction adventures. These are just a few of the events chronicled in this exhaustive, full-color hardcover. Taken together, American Comic Book Chronicles forms a cohesive, linear overview of the entire landscape of comics history, sure to be an invaluable resource for ANY comic book enthusiast!

"Dana is my life force." --Christopher Reeve "A terrible thing happened. I wish it hadn't. But would I change who I married? Never." --Dana Reeve He was a hero in every sense of the word--the chiseled-from-granite star of four blockbuster Superman films and the romantic classic Somewhere in Time who, after being paralyzed in a freak horseback riding accident, became a symbol of hope for millions. Dana Reeve was no less heroic, standing steadfastly by her husband's side until his surprisingly sudden and unexpected death at age fifty-two. When Dana, a non-smoker, passed away from lung cancer just seventeen months after Chris's death, she left behind their thirteen-year-old son, Will, to be raised by friends and family. Dana was only forty-four years old. That fate could have dealt such a cruel hand to this golden couple seemed unfathomable. That they could endure it all with grace, courage, and humor defied belief. Yet for all the millions of words that have been written about their public causes and private struggles following Chris's accident, little is known about the lives they led as passionate young lovers. Now, in the manner of his poignant-yet-stirring bestsellers Jack and Jackie, Jackie After Jack, An Affair to Remember, The Day Diana Died, After Diana, and The Day John Died, No. l New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen draws on those who knew them best to examine in touching detail the Reeves' unique partnership and the romance, faith, and fortitude that defined it. Sometimes heartbreaking, often uplifting, always compelling, Somewhere in Heaven is more than just a portrait of a marriage. It is the profoundly human story of two souls whose brief lives made a difference, a bittersweet saga of tragedy, triumph, and loss, and--above all else--a love story for the ages.

The American Way of Life

View: 568

Telling the full story of the American Way of Life (or more simply the American Way) in the United States over the course of the last century reveals key insights that add to our understanding of American culture. Lawrence R. Samuel argues that since the term was popularized in the 1930s, the American Way has served as the primary guiding mythology or national ethos of the United States. More than that, however, this work shows that the American Way has represented many things to many people, making the mythology a useful device for anyone wishing to promote a particular agenda that serves his or her interests. A consumerist lifestyle supported by a system based in free enterprise has been the ideological backbone of the American Way, but the term has been attached to everything from farming to baseball to barbecue. There really is no single, identifiable American Way and never has been—it becomes clear after tracing its history—making it a kind of Zelig of belief systems. If our underlying philosophy or set of values is amorphous and nebulous, then so is our national identity and character, Samuel concludes, implying that the meaning of America is elastic and accommodating to many interpretations. This unique thesis sets off this work from other books and helps establish it as a seminal resource within the fields of American history and American studies.
