Finding Grace (Ghost Hunters Mystery-Detective)...
€ 2.99 *

He knew something he was listening/watching was poisoning and killing him. Slowly. Painfully. Sinking into a gradual depression and dying of apathy. He´d seen this happen to others. Suicide, drug overdose. All a permanent solution to a very temporary problem. Then she showed up. Not your typical haunting ghost or vindictive spirit. Different. In a good way. She´d come just to solve his mystery - the one he didn´t know he had. It was a haunting problem she didn´t know if she could even help solve. But she owed him this chance to solve himself. Now she was calling on people he had saved from themselves to come and intervene in his life, his mystery. To expose the secrets he didn´t want anyone knowing - especially himself. Excerpt: I was sitting in my tiny cabin, depressed. I couldn´t even write. And that was my living. If I didn´t solve it soon, much worse would happen. Then the screen of my laptop flopped down on the desk, black and dead. When I stood up to see what had happened, I found the screen was completely disconnected. Wires seemed clipped between it and the base. Then my rolling chair fell apart. Not just the back or the arms, but everything. Completely disassembled on the floor. The table was next. I was able to scoop up my mug of honey-sweetened coffee just as it started to slide off the leaning table top - following the remains of my now unworking laptop. Stepping back carefully, to avoid tripping on the chair parts, I watched the legs of the once-sturdy wooden table simply fold under as the desktop crashed to the floor. Behind me, the coat rack fell with slightly less noise, as the coat, jacket, and caps all muffled the noise as they fell on top of the work-boots and tall mud boots. I was wondering about the couch and the small kitchenette, but then felt the floor sag and the roof separate from the walls with a widening crack - as the sky beyond appeared between them. Then I started sliding, as the narrow hooked rug under my feet lost any grip on the sealed decking beneath it... - - - - My eyes opened. I was back in my fold-out couch-bunk. Turning to look at the rest of the room, I saw it was still intact. The usual. And relaxed in the darkness of the early morning. Just another bad dream. A nightmare. My world literally falling apart. Before I could consider turning over, or getting up instead, a shimmering appeared by the door - with a bright light that was almost blinding. ´´Hello, John.´´ A very feminine voice, warm and contralto, was reassuring - even though I had my arm covering my eyes against the too-bright light. ´´Oh, sorry - just wanted to brighten things, but let it get out of hand. Too used to pitch-black caves, I guess.´´ The light dimmed and my eyes started adjusting to the room´s now-normal lighting. Before I could make out her figure, the woman behind that voice sat on my bunk. Through the layers of covers and comforter, I could feel her form next to my legs. Her slight weight moved the light couch-bunk frame as she adjusted - and I moved over to give her more room and comfort on the narrow bunk. As my eyes became accustomed, I could make out her dark russet hair she´d braided and coiled about her head in a form of peasant style. Her green vest and sheer sleeves reminded me of someone...

Brooke´s Sons No.2 (eBook, ePUB)
€ 3.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

DESCRIPTION: Brooke begins the second part of her story by leading Fred down to the dungeon, and with the twins help, he gives her what she needs. And unable to stop herself, Brooke continues the incestuous affair with Chase and Tanner. Later, Amber and Tiff join them, and Fred, Brooke, and the twins introduce the girls to the world of BDSM. Over the next few days, Brooke explores pain and sex with the twins, Amber, Tiff, and Fred. EXCERPT: Pouring cocoa into Christmas mugs, Chase looked up. “Aw; mom… you look nice– “But we can’t see anything;” Tanner said. “Just making you wait for it.” Brooke smiled and dropping the cashmere to the floor, spun on her heels. “Is this more what you had in mind, boys?” “God; yes.” Chase’s eyes narrowed as he looked at his mom’s body, and loving the sheer fabric leaving little to the imagination, shook his head. “Fuck me … you look fantastic.” “Yeah; mom … you’re fucking hot;” Tanner said. “Glad you like … but if I’m only wearin’ this, I gotta sit by the fire.” “Go get warm, we’ll bring the cocoa;” Chase said. “Don’t forget the marshmallows;” Brooke purred. Moving to the fire. Brooke kicked her boots off, and throwing a blanket over the leather chair, curled her legs under her on the wool, enjoying the flames warming her skin. The twins walked in, and handing her a mug, Tanner said, “Careful; mom … it’s really hot.” “Thanks; son. Please, throw another log on the fire.” After settling in chairs next to hers, the twins and Brooke stayed quiet, a few minutes, relishing the closeness while they sipped the cocoa. Draining his mug, Chase said, “We’re really happy for you.” “Yeah; mom … Fred’s the right man;” Tanner said. “I think so too … and I’m glad you approve. Fred asked to take me to dinner tonight. He wants to go on a few dates before we buy rings. Can you boys survive without me for a couple of hours?” “We’ll be fine. You two need to be together without sex involved.” Chase touched Brooke’s arm. “That means you can’t play with his dick under the table, mom.” “Or fuck him in the car before you even go into the restaurant;” Tanner said. “Damn. You mean I can’t play with Fred at all … no sex ‘til we get home?” “Yep … you have to be good;” Chase said. “And tonight, Chase and I are off limits.” Tanner caressed Brooke’s cheek. “You and Fred should be alone when you make love.” “But I get you boys today, right?” “Yeah; mom … Tanner and I will fuck you all you want. And we still wanna join you and Fred, just not tonight.” “I love you both so much.” Tears welling up in her eyes, Brooke brushed them away. “No mom could ever ask for better sons … make love to me, boys.” The twins took turns licking Brooke to several orgasms, and scooping her off the chair, Chase settled on the blanket. And pulling her back against his chest, Brooke gasped as Chase slid his

In Love with the World: A Monk´s Journey Throug...
€ 22.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A rare, intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk´s near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained from it ´´One of the most inspiring books I have ever read.´´-Pema Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart ´´This book has the potential to change the reader´s life forever.´´-George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the Bardo At thirty-six years old, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche was a rising star within his generation of Tibetan masters and the respected abbot of three monasteries. Then one night, telling no one, he slipped out of his monastery in India with the intention of spending the next four years on a wandering retreat, following the ancient practice of holy mendicants. His goal was to throw off his titles and roles in order to explore the deepest aspects of his being. He immediately discovered that a lifetime of Buddhist education and practice had not prepared him to deal with dirty fellow travelers or the screeching of a railway car. He found he was too attached to his identity as a monk to remove his robes right away or to sleep on the Varanasi station floor, and instead paid for a bed in a cheap hostel. But when he ran out of money, he began his life as an itinerant beggar in earnest. Soon he became deathly ill from food poisoning-and his journey took a startling turn. His meditation practice had prepared him to face death, and now he had the opportunity to test the strength of his training. In this powerful and unusually candid account of the inner life of a Buddhist master, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche offers us the invaluable lessons he learned from his near-death experience. By sharing with the reader the meditation practices that sustain him, he shows us how we can transform our fear of dying into joyful living. Advance praise for In Love wIth the World ´´In Love with the World is a magnificent story-moving and inspiring, profound and utterly human. It will certainly be a dharma classic. Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche´s life-changing adventure carries us with him and teaches us how to find the unshakable heart amidst it all.´´-Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart ´´In this vivid, compelling account, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche reveals his own struggle and awakening as he faces the loss of worldly identity and the threat of dying itself. This book is a rarity in spiritual literature: Reading the intimate story of this wise and devoted Buddhist monk directly infuses our own transformational journey with fresh meaning, luminosity, and life.´´-Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
