Waiting to Exhale is a masterful novel from a writer who has developed a special bond with her audience. Set in Phoenix, Arizona, it´s a wise, funny, and resonant story about the friendship between four very different women who have one thing in common: they have not fared well with the men in their lives. Savannah Jackson is 35, single, and weary of men who can´t make the transition from boyfriend to husband. Bernadine Harris is suddenly single - her husband has left her for a 24-year-old white woman. Marilyn Stokes is on the rebound, regretting the years she wasted on a dead-end relationship and mourning her recent miscarriage. And Gloria Matthews, a single mother whose 16-year-old son has just discovered sex, has spent most of her adult life driving men away with her none-too-subtle hunger for marriage. Told from each of these characters´ diverse points of view, Waiting to Exhale is about their desire to find good men, exciting men; men who could help them lose the strange feeling that they´ve been holding their breath for as long as they can remember; men who could make them exhale. But it´s also about a different kind of bonding between black women: a rich, supportive, abiding friendship that doesn´t necessarily include men. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry McMillan.

Forster ´´´But you do,´´ he went on, not waiting for contradiction. ´´You love the boy body and soul, plainly, directly, as he loves you, and no other word expresses it ...´´ Lucy has her rigid, middle-class life mapped out for her until she visits Florence with her uptight cousin Charlotte, and finds her neatly ordered existence thrown off balance. Her eyes are opened by the unconventional characters she meets at the Pension Bertolini: flamboyant romantic novelist Eleanor Lavish, the Cockney Signora, curious Mr Emerson and, most of all, his passionate son George. Lucy finds herself torn between the intensity of life in Italy and the repressed morals of Edwardian England, personified in her terminally dull fiancé Cecil Vyse. Will she ever learn to follow her own heart?

WHAT IF GOD ISN´T IN A HURRY? WHAT IF THE WAITING IS PART OF HIS PLAN? WHAT IF DELAY DOESN´T MEAN DENIAL? Humanity tends to gravitate toward the quick solution. If it can be cooked faster, delivered faster, or fixed faster, we´re all in. But this is just one of the infinite ways that God is different from us. God has no problem taking His time. He loves to work in ways that don´t match our manic schedule. He isn´t always the God of the immediate, but His timing is always perfect. The stories in God of the Long View reveal a Creator who does marvelous, miraculous, instantaneous things! But they also reveal a God who is just as content to work over decades, lifetimes, even centuries to heal, save, and build His Church. This book explores the God who is active even when we can´t see Him designing blueprints that span generations in order to accomplish His will. God of the Long View will inspire believers and skeptics alike. The Creator is orchestrating His epic narrative! We may not fully see it today, but rest assured, His agenda is worth waiting for.
If you enjoy Victorian erotica, dominance and submission, a servant and her mistress learning the joys of female touch, and a soundly spanked bottom setting off fireworks, this novella delivers the goods. Told in the first person from young servant Charlotte´s point of view, we get a peek into the not-so-stuffy lives of the nobility from the servants´ quarters. Charlotte has been Lady Emma´s maid and companion for only a few months when Lord Darcy begins to court her mistress. While Darcy acts quite the gentleman with Lady Emma, he is not nearly so gentle with Charlotte, rogering her bum every chance he gets. When Charlotte learns her beloved Lady Emma is soon to wed Lord Darcy, she cannot stand the thought of betraying her mistress any longer, and comes up with a plan to turn away Lord Darcy´s roving hands. It all goes wrong when Lady Emma catches her in the act. That´s when everything goes oh-so-deliciously right. A scorched bottom and many other delights ensue. Lady Emma is a fan of the scientific method, and sets out to test her hypotheses about just what will drive her lady´s maid over the edge. Warning: This scorching Victorian erotic novella features an arrogant lord who takes what he wants, a submissive, lusty lady in waiting, a lady who satisfies her curiosity by thoroughly examining her companion, and explicit erotic interludes. Intended for mature listeners, 18+. If such material offends you, please do not download this book. No actual orchids were harmed in the making of this story. 1. Language: English.
