A wanted man seeks refuge—with the girl who wants him most—in a historical novel that’s “every romance reader’s fantasy come true” (Romantic Times). Lettie Grey is in love with a man who exists only in her thoughts. The highwayman, dark and dangerous, dwells in her most wanton fantasies, where he stirs her deepest desires. But when Ethan McGuire, a bank robber and fugitive, arrives in her small Illinois town, Lettie realizes the sensual stranger of her imagination is more than just a dream . . . On the run from the law and a ruthless band of vigilantes, Ethan seeks shelter in the safety of Lettie’s small attic bedroom, and in the heat of her embrace. But can a man who trusts no one give away his heart in the midst of a fight for his life? “A can’t-put-it-down cliffhanger of the best sort, a real winner.” —Rendezvous “A delightful tale with mystery, love, and a most intriguing set of secondary characters. The hero and heroine are flawed but endearing, and the mystery component of the novel is paced well enough to keep the reader guessing.” —Affaire de Coeur “Lisa Bingham knows how to play on our secret wishes, and, in this sensual, delightful, humorous, and tender romance, she holds you captive from first page to last.” —Romantic Times

In games that are as perilous as they are passionate, everyone plays for keeps. “Exciting, humorous, and utterly delightful... This marvelously fast-paced, often funny, and yet tender romance is an ideal read for a cozy afternoon when you need to fill your heart with love and laughter.”—Romantic Times When Fiona McFee first meets the straight-laced deputy Jacob Grey, he is naked and bound in a field of foxtails. A con man’s daughter through and through, Fiona leaves him there as he swears to never forget her. True to his word, Jacob tracks Fiona to Chicago years later, and he has an offer for her that she can’t refuse: A full pardon for her and her father in exchange for her help in catching a counterfeiter. All she must do is pose as a wealthy British widow and play poker on a tourist train heading West. With her freedom at stake, as well as another chance to outwit Jacob, Fiona must perfect her poker face as she gambles for the fate of her future. But neither she, nor Jacob, can ignore the undeniable attraction between them, and as the stakes of their deadly game soar to new heights, the thin line between inevitable danger and unyielding desire begins to blur. Now both Fiona and Jacob have more to lose than either of them bargained for— their hearts. "This novel will grip you as few thrillers can, pushing the reader to look for the unexpected. The action is exciting, the characters believable and compelling. You will not put this one down.”—Rendezvous “SILKEN PROMISES is Lisa Bingham at her talented best—a wonderful example of Americana. Filled with excitement, danger, and passion, it captures perfectly the spirit of late nineteenth century America, a land on the verge of being tamed by those who believe in honor and love.” —The Paperback Forum

Aliens live among us. Thousands of species of nonnative flora and fauna have taken up residence within U.S. borders. Our lawns sprout African grasses, our roadsides flower with European weeds, and our homes harbor Asian, European, and African pests. Misguided enthusiasts deliberately introduced carp, kudzu, and starlings. And the American cowboy spread such alien life forms as cows, horses, tumbleweed, and anthrax, supplanting and supplementing the often unexpected ways "Native" Americans influenced the environment. Aliens in the Backyard recounts the origins and impacts of these and other nonindigenous species on our environment and pays overdue tribute to the resolve of nature to survive in the face of challenge and change. In considering the new home that imported species have made for themselves on the continent, John Leland departs from those environmentalists who universally decry the invasion of outsiders. Instead Leland finds that uncovering stories of alien arrivals and assimilation is a more intriguing—and ultimately more beneficial—endeavor. Mixing natural history with engaging anecdotes, Leland cuts through problematic myths coloring our grasp of the natural world and suggests that how these alien species have reshaped our landscape is now as much a part of our shared heritage as tales of our presidents and politics. Simultaneously he poses questions about which of our accepted icons are truly American (not apple pie or Kentucky bluegrass; not Idaho potatoes or Boston ivy). Leland's ode to survival reveals how plant and animal immigrants have made the country as much an environmental melting pot as its famed melding of human cultures, and he invites us to reconsider what it means to be American.

In The Murmuring Trees delves into nature, mythology and fantasy through evocative prose and poetry, taking readers to a time and place where myths were real and legends walked amongst men. It retells classic stories of gods and monsters, and mans place within natures grandeur, capturing the essence of these timeless tales while instilling in them a modern twist unique to R. Tirrell Leonard Jr. "Imaginative poems and prose of great spirit, rich creativity, and three-dimensional imagery." The Columbia Review. In The Murmuring Trees (2012) Reviewed By: The Editorial Board The Editorial Board of The Columbia Review selects new books and films of interest, as well as paid submissions and sponsored reviews from authors, publishers, directors, agents and producers. In The Murmuring Trees by R. Tirrell Leonard JR. is an imaginative volume of poems and prose of great spirit, rich creativity, and three-dimensional imagery. Readers of poetry often seek to understand not only the meaning of the words themselves, but to perceive who the poet really is. One might speculate that Leonard may be revealing himself best with the first line in the poem A Post in Furies Winds: I know I differ from the normal view This collection of poems and prose is also a unique exploration of a common sentiment love but here it is to a place, as the title of another song reads: A Magical Country Dance. One cannot miss Mr. Leonards deep love for the State of Massachusetts both its people (Contemporary and natives) and its raw physical beauty (land and coast). Most of the pieces may fit on one page, but many would serve as food for thought for a whole evening. And while the poet speaks of losing his voice, his writing comes across loud and clear with great charm and natural rythm. Adding to this volumes value for the reader are snippets of true perception and tickling humor. For example, who among us, lovers of poetry, dont remember a sleepless night made longer by the crickets singing through the open window, driving us near the brink. In particular, some of Mr. Leonards poetry attains the cloak of youthful wit, alluding to figures from the sphere of fantasy and the world of magic, which would make much of this volume easily accessible and happily enjoyable for younger readers, as well. In summary, this meticulous and beautiful collection leaves the reader shaken, elated and reflective, perhaps as the poet concludes the title poem (or close to it), In Murmurings Through Trees: Skies with lightning flashes bright and brawling, fill my mind with wonders still and installing. Indeed!

In this new collection of loosely related stories, Greece's most acclaimed living novelist gives us a vivid and complex portrait of contemporary Europe and contemporary Europeans. Here are seven tales that tell, sometimes whimsically and other times bitterly, of the old world facing new dilemmas. In the title story, five friends start a newspaper consisting of nothing more than people's dreams and end up determining the political reality of their country. In "history," a jaded group of guests cavort on an industrialist's yacht, while the captain teaches his grandson the history of modern Greece. In "stories of taxi drivers," one of the newspapermen recounts the dreams of taxi drivers. "Dona Rosita and Don Pacifico" and "three miraculous moments lived by Dona Rosita" comprise a magical realist love story. "The white bear" describes the appearance of a bear in downtown Athens. And in "the transplant," the notebooks of a troubled Greek writer in Rome finish telling of the life and death of Dona Rosita, whose posthumous heart transplant saved the life of her friend.

William S. Kilborne has been writing poetry, mostly light verse, ever since he was an editor of The Yale Record. He has had over fifty song lyrics published in musicals; he believes that Stephen Sondheim is our greatest living poet. He has been most influenced by Emily Dickenson, Robert Frost, Ogden Nash, Edna St. Vincent Millay, A.E. Houseman, and Edwin Arlington Robinson. No living poets make this list.

He also has a Masters Degree from NYU. His text, The Writing Guide, has sold over 2000 copies; he has been a guest columnist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram; he has published many articles on education and General Semantics, in little magazines.
