ABOUT THE BOOK I learned many lessons from my time in Paris, but the most profound lesson I learned was to lead a life of passion. Every detail of life can become exceptional if you allow it to be so. You hold the key. When filled with laughter, friendship, art, intellectual endeavors and a certain verve life can be extraordinary. You should know, this book is a quick read. Before you can really settle in to figure out whether you disagree with it or love it, you´re at acknowledgments and find yourself thoroughly entertained. At a modest 146 pages, this work is more reminiscent of a lighthearted diary than a manual tightly packed with style tips. It is no surprise then that the book originated as a blog entry on The Daily Connoisseur, Jennifer L. Scott´s beauty and lifestyle blog. A crossover between a memoir, a humor column, and fly-on-the-wall reporting, Lessons from Madame Chic: The Top 20 Things I Learned While Living in Paris, successfully provides solutions on how to incorporate the best of Parisian wisdom into our daily lives. As a University of Southern California student with understanding parents (read: who agreed to pay for the trip) and a personal sense of adventure (read: a very limited grasp of the French language), Jennifer L. Scott decides to take a semester abroad to expand her cultural horizons beyond California´s laid-back attitude. Her time spent in Paris teaches her that a little formality in our daily lives can reignite pleasure in performing even the simplest of tasks (i.e. having meals at the same time every day or dressing appropriately for bed every night). MEET THE AUTHOR Evelyn Dumonte hails from a very tiny country of Estonia...you´ll find her traveling, reading, participating in general ´´debauchery´´, and making new friends. She has several degrees and some accolades but she´d much rather tell you about the time she smuggled a kitten on an airplane out of Russia.
New York Times best-selling author Jasinda Wilder presents the conclusion to Madame X´s thrilling saga of discovery. My name is Madame X. My heart is torn in two. And now I have to choose.... Caleb is everything to her: lover, caretaker, the man who gave her life meaning when she had none. But as she seeks the truth about herself and her past, she discovers that unraveling Caleb´s web of lies might very well be impossible. Logan is everything she never knew she wanted: freedom, joy, and a passion she couldn´t anticipate. But is Logan´s love enough to save her from herself, from Caleb, and from the tumultuous truth of her past? Caught between two equally compelling men, X must make the ultimate choice. But there´s more at stake than just her heart…. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Summer Roberts, Tyler Donne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/064120/bk_acx0_064120_sample.mp3.

Madam Tinubu Queens of Africa Book 6: JudbyBee
From the national bestselling author of Red Azalea. “Extraordinary . . . Min lets [Madame Mao] be seen as never before. Bottom line: riveting” ( People ). In a sweeping, erotically charged story, Anchee Min creates a finely nuanced portrait of one of the most fascinating, and vilified, women of the twentieth century. Madame Mao is almost universally known as the “white-boned demon”—ambitious; vindictive, and cruel—whose bid to succeed her husband led to the death of millions. But Min’s story begins with a young girl named Yunhe, the unwanted daughter of a concubine who ignored her mother’s pleas and refused to have her feet bound. It was the first act of rebellion for this headstrong, beautiful, and charismatic girl, who would find fame as an actress in Shanghai, and later fall in love and marry Mao Zedong. The great revolutionary leader proved to be an inattentive husband with a voracious appetite for infidelity, but the couple stayed together through the Communist victory, the disastrous Great Leap Forward, and the chaos of the Cultural Revolution. Min uses the facts of history and her lush, penetrating psychological imagination to take us beyond the myth of the person who so greatly influenced an entire generation of Chinese. The result is a complex portrait of a woman who railed against the confines of her culture, whose deep-seated insecurities propelled her to reinvent herself constantly, and whose ambition was matched only by her ferocious, never-to-be-fulfilled need to be loved. “Sheer poetry.” — The Wall Street Journal “A magnificent book: consequential, significant, beautiful . . . the true heroine is writer Anchee Min.” — San Diego Union-Tribune
Margaret Oliphant Wilson was born on April 4th, 1828 to Francis W. Wilson, a clerk, and Margaret Oliphant, at Wallyford, near Musselburgh, East Lothian. Her youth was spent in establishing a writing style and by 1849 she had her first novel published: Passages in the Life of Mrs. Margaret Maitland. Two years later, in 1851 Caleb Field was published and also an invitation to contribute to Blackwood´s Magazine; the beginning of a life time business relationship. In May 1852, Margaret married her cousin, Frank Wilson Oliphant. Their marriage produced six children but, tragically, three died in infancy. When her husband developed signs of the dreaded consumption (tuberculosis) they moved to Florence, and then to Rome where, sadly, he died. Margaret was naturally devastated but was also now left without support and only her income from writing to support the family. She returned to England and took up the burden of supporting her three remaining children by her literary activity. Her incredible and prolific work rate increased both her commercial reputation and the size of her reading audience. Tragedy struck again in January 1864 when her only remaining daughter Maggie died. In 1866 she settled at Windsor to be closer to her sons, who were being educated at near-by Eton School. For more than thirty years she pursued a varied literary career but family life continued to bring problems. Cyril Francis, her eldest son, died in 1890. The younger son, Francis, who she nicknamed ´Cecco´, died in 1894. With the last of her children now lost to her, she had little further interest in life. Her health steadily and inexorably declined. Margaret Oliphant Wilson Oliphant died at the age of 69 in Wimbledon on 20th June 1897. She is buried in Eton beside her sons.

Dieser Terrorangriff gegen Israel soll der größte der Weltgeschichte werden - so viel steht fest für die palästinensische Geheimdienstchefin Mouna al Husseini, genannt Madame Terror. Das technische Know-how holt sie sich bei den Russen: Gemeinsam wird ein gigantisches Atom-U-Boot aus Titan entwickelt, mit dem sich die israelische Flotte ausschalten lässt. Doch auf der U-1 Jerusalem prallen die Mentalitäten der russischen und der arabischen Besatzungsmitglieder aufeinander, und das gesamte Projekt droht zu kippen. Ein Oberbefehlshaber muss her, der fließend Russisch und Englisch spricht, weder Araber noch Russe ist und über umfassendes militärisches Wissen verfügt. Es kommt nur ein Mann infrage, ein alter Freund von Mouna al Husseini: Carl Hamilton, der unter dem Namen Charles Hamlon seit Jahren inkognito in Kalifornien lebt ... In diesem temporeichen Thriller betritt Carl Hamilton, der Held aus der erfolgreichen Krimiserie Bestsellerautors Jan Guillou, erneut die literarische Bühne und hat einen besonders brisanten Fall zu übernehmen.
Max Boyle was hoping for a quiet life after the rough-and-tumble of World War II, but ´´my life with Professor Stubbs had been nothing more than one damned murder after another, and even in between murders I´d had no peace.´´ As the professor/amateur detective´s assistant, Max is inevitably drawn into the latest imbroglio, this one involving Stubbs´s drinking buddy, an amiable lunatic known as Mr. Carr. It seems that Mr. Carr´s dotty old Aunt Lottie, who ran a tawdry hotel in Notting Hill, was found strangled in her rocking chair. Each boarderis mentioned in her will ? and all of their alibis are weak. Stubbs is determined to exonerate his chum, the will´s chief beneficiary, so the pipe-smoking, beer-swilling sleuth forces his assistance upon the long-suffering police investigator, Chief Inspector Bishop. With his characteristic humor and poetic turns of phrase, Max recounts the professor´s scrutiny of a ne´er-do-well cousin, a pair of jewel thieves, a seductive but hard-boiled chambermaid, and other seedy suspects. This edition marks the witty and atmospheric mystery´s first publication in the United States.
