Much Ado About You

By James, Eloisa

Harper Collins, 2006. New paperback in unread condition. Book Description: Tess Essex wished her father had loved his Thoroughbreds a bit less and his daughters a bit more. Now, after his death, Tess, Imogen, Annabel, and Josephine find themselves with a new guardian: Rafe Jourdain, the Duke of Holbrook. Although Holbrook is exceedingly kind, he is completely clueless when it comes to finding suitable matches for his new wards. Deciding that it is up to her, Tess encourages the romantic overtures of one of Holbrook's closest friends, Garret Langham, the Earl of Mayne. Titled, handsome, and sophisticated, Garret is an entirely appropriate suitor for Tess, and his society connections will help Tess secure good husbands for her sisters. The only problem is that even though Tess is resigned to a politely civilized marriage to Garret, she just can't seem to forget the less acceptable Lucius Felton and his deliciously improper kisses. In the first in a new series featuring the wonderfully amusing Essex sisters, New York Times best-selling James' gift for superb characterization and elegantly sensual, delightfully witty prose create a thoroughly romantic treat. . Paperback. As New/None. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Island of the Day Before

By Eco, Umberto

Harcourt, Inc., 2006. After a violent storm in the South Pacific in the year 1643, Roberto della Griva finds himself shipwrecked-on a ship. Swept from the Amaryllis, he has managed to pull himself aboard the Daphne, anchored in the bay of a beautiful island. The ship is fully provisioned, he discovers, but the crew is missing. As Roberto explores the different cabinets in the hold, he remembers chapters from his youth: Ferrante, his imaginary evil brother; the siege of Casale, that meaningless chess move in the Thirty Years' War in which he lost his father and his illusions; and the lessons given him on Reasons of State, fencing, the writing of love letters, and blasphemy. In this fascinating, lyrical tale, Umberto Eco tells of a young dreamer searching for love and meaning; and of a most amazing old Jesuit who, with his clocks and maps, has plumbed the secrets of longitudes, the four moons of Jupiter, and the Flood..

Rivers of War

By Flint, Eric

Del Rey, 2005. Eric Flint's acclaimed 1634: The Galileo Affair was a national bestseller from one of the most talked-about voices in his field. Now, in this extraordinary new alternate history, Flint begins a dramatic saga of the North American continent at a dire turning point, forging its identity and its future in the face of revolt from within, and attack from without. In the War of 1812, U.S. troops are battling the British on the Canadian border, even as a fierce fight is being waged against the Creek followers of the Indian leader Tecumseh and his brother, known as The Prophet. In Europe, Napoleon Bonaparte's war has become a losing proposition, and the British are only months away from unleashing a frightening assault on Washington itself. Fateful choices are being made in the corridors of power and on the American frontier. As Andrew Jackson, backed by Cherokee warriors, leads a fierce attack on the Creek tribes, his young republic will soon need every citizen soldier it can find. What ifat this critical momentbonds were forged between men of different races and tribes? What if the Cherokee clans were able to muster an integrated front, and the U.S. government faced a united Indian nation bolstered by escaping slaves, freed men of color, and even influential white allies? Through the remarkable adventures of men who were really theremen of mixed race, mixed emotions, and a singular purposeThe Rivers of War carries us in this new direction, brilliantly transforming an extraordinary chapter of American history. With a cast of unforgettable charactersfrom James Monroe and James Madison to Sam Houston, Francis Scott Key, and Cherokee chiefs John Ross and Major RidgeThe Rivers of War travels from the battle of Horseshoe Bend to the battle of New Orleans, and brings every explosive moment to life. With exquisite attention to detail, an extraordinary grasp of history, and a storyteller's gift for the dramatic, Flint delivers a bold, thought-provoking epic of enemies and allies, traitors and revolutionaries, and illuminates who we are as a nation, how we got here, and how history itself is madeand remade..

Territory

By Bull, Emma

Tor Books, 2007. Book Descrption: Wyatt Earp. Doc Holliday. Ike Clanton. You think you know the story. You don’t.   Tombstone, Arizona in 1881 is the site of one of the richest mineral strikes in American history, where veins of silver run like ley lines under the earth, a network of power that belongs to anyone who knows how to claim and defend it. Above the ground, power is also about allegiances. A magician can drain his friends' strength to strengthen himself, and can place them between him and danger. The one with the most friends stands to win the territory. Jesse Fox left his Eastern college education to travel West, where he’s made some decidedly odd friends, like the physician Chow Lung, who insists that Jesse has a talent for magic. In Tombstone, Jesse meets the tubercular Doc Holliday, whose inner magic is as suppressed as his own, but whose power is enough to attract the sorcerous attention of Wyatt Earp.   Mildred Benjamin is a young widow making her living as a newspaper typesetter, and--unbeknownst to the other ladies of Tombstone--selling tales of Western derring-do to the magazines back East. Like Jesse, Mildred has episodes of seeing things that can’t possibly be there.   When a failed stage holdup results in two dead, Tombstone explodes with speculation about who attempted the robbery. The truth could destroy Earp's plans for wealth and glory, and he'll do anything to bury it. Meanwhile, outlaw leader John Ringo wants the same turf as Earp. Each courts Jesse as an ally, and tries to isolate him by endangering his friends, as they struggle for magical dominance of the territory. Events are building toward the shootout of which you may have heard. But you haven't heard the whole, secret story until you've read Emma Bull's unique take on an American legend, in which absolutely nothing is as it seems.... Hard Cover. New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Except those already in Petra, everyone has been forced to relocate as Antichrist ratchets up the ante in the world’s most treacherous game.

Daughter of Troy

By Franklin, Sarah

Harper Pernnial, 1998. IN THE DAYS WHEN GODS TALKED WITH MORTALS...Briseis was the rightful-born queen of Lyrnessos, seer and spokesperson of the gods. Achilles was the young prince of Thessaly, greatest of Greek warriors, the finest hero of them all. Their lives were the stuff of dreams and of legend, and for three thousand years the world has wept over the tragic story of their doomed love. Here, in a modern retelling of Homer's immortal classic The Iliad is a magnificent saga of courage, betrayal, devotion and destiny. When King Agamemnon led the Greek host against the great city of Troy, he began by crushing the Trojan allies, including fair Lyrnessos. From the battlements Briseis saw her husband and her beloved brothers die. Her palace was sacked, her people carried off into slavery, while she herself became the prize of the leader, Prince Achilles. Then passion intervened and the chains of love bound the slave to her master, as Achilles lost his heart to the beautiful Briseis. When Troy fell, Achilles promised, he would take his beloved home and marry her. There she would reign at his side as queen of Thessaly. Alas, the gods decreed otherwise. Jealous King Agamemnon stole her away, and Achilles in his fury swore to fight no more. Briseis, with her dreadful gift of prescience, knew that unless Achilles left, he was destined to die under the walls of Troy. But the brave hero could not bring himself to desert the woman he loved. Defying the will of the gods, the seeress determined to save her love, whatever the cost. From Sarah B. Franklin, an extraordinary new voice in historical fiction, comes an epic of incredible scope and power, bringing the Trojan War to vivid life through the tale of its greatest hero-and the remarkable woman he loved..
