A Glamour Best Book of 2020 • A Bustle Best Books of 2020 • Winner of an Audiofile Earphones Award • An Entertainment Weekly 30 Hottest Book of the Summer • A Refinery29 25 Book You’ll Want To Read This Summer Selection • A Chicago Review of Books 10 Must-Read Books of the Month • A LitHub Most Anticipated Book of the Year • A The Millions Most Anticipated Book of the Year • A Shondaland 15 Hot Books for Summer One of today’s most provocative literary writers—the author of the critically-acclaimed Sunshine State and the Los Angeles Times First Fiction Award finalist Binary Star—captures the confused state of modern romance and the egos that inflate it in a dark comedy about a woman's search for acceptance, identity, and financial security in the rise of Trump. Nina is a struggling writer, a college drop-out, a liar, and a cheater. More than anything she wants love. She deserves it. From the burned-out suburbs of Florida to the anonymous squalor of New York City, she eats through an incestuous cast of characters in search of it: her mother, a narcissistic lesbian living in a nudist polycule; Odessa, a single mom with even worse taste in men than Nina; Seth, an artist whose latest show is comprised of three Tupperware containers full of trash; Brian, whose roller-coaster affair with Nina is the most stable “relationship” in his life; and Aaron, an aspiring filmmaker living at home with his parents, with whom Nina begins to write her magnum opus. Nina’s quest for fulfillment is at once darkly comedic, acerbically acute, and painfully human—a scathing critique of contemporary society, and a tender examination of our anguished yearning for connection in an era defined by detachment.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jude Deveraux, the bestselling author of unforgettable romance, returns with a breathtaking first book in a fantastic series—the Nantucket Brides trilogy. Set on the magical Massachusetts island, True Love introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from Deveraux’s classic novels. Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman’s relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix—fresh from a romantic breakup—but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend’s storybook wedding. But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House’s ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn’t troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property’s guesthouse. Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island—an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair. With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves—some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jude Deveraux's For All Time. Praise for True Love “Jude Deveraux’s Nantucket Brides series will sweep you away. A beautiful island, a sexy man, and plenty of secrets—this is a wonderful writer at her best.”—Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author of Three Sisters “A new Jude Deveraux novel means a very late night turning the pages straight through to the delicious end.”—Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author of The Great Escape “True Love, with its star-crossed lovers and twisty plot, evokes everything that makes Nantucket so special—the history, the atmosphere, the secrets, and the magic.”—Susan Wiggs “Destined to be an instant romance classic . . . [It] will haunt you long after you read it.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “Deveraux is at her spellbinding romantic finest.”—Booklist “A novel about star-crossed love, life, death and reincarnation . . . a romantic story of love so deep it survives centuries.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Unconditional love is the greatest power of all.”— David Hawkins And then there was silence. Silence in the wake of a prolonged storm that has just passed and all that is left is this silence.... followed by peace. A sense of stillness like the world is at rest, everything is serene. Yet, the peace doesn’t really last because the mind, filled with ego-love, is a stranger to this feeling. The mind feels anxious- as if something is lacking and another storm is on its way which will knock down the building still standing in aftermath of the previous storm. And all it is doing is resting in this ephemeral silence while inevitably, peace is going to turn into utter chaos. This is what the ego-love dominated mind is waiting for and surely, that loving peace is fading away gradually, and the silence is getting replaced with cluttering self-limiting thoughts. Yet, the heart knows that it can hold on to that loving peace forever. There doesn’t have to be another storm or if there is one, it doesn’t have to cause noise or havoc. The heart knows that to live with peace for all eternity, the tether to hold onto is true unconditional love. And then only this silence will not be feared by the mind. It will just be loved, the way it really has to be. The sigh of relief can become an everlasting breath of love, only if the heart can remove the clutches of fear and all the negative emotions. Only if the heart can connect to true love, make it the only intention, then all the dreams will become reality and the heart will finally be at peace full of inner convictions. In this book, you will be able to feel this power of unconditional true love residing in your heart. As you read, you will be encouraged to shift your perspective towards life from existing with ego-love to that of living with true love. So, embark on this journey of recognising the beauty of true love by reading this wonderful collection of poems. Simple yet profound, these poems will inspire you to look within and connect to your true love.

Who can find True Love? Love is what makes the world go round. The Bible says Jesus loves us because He died for us. In the world of today this is all we hear, so many dying either for Love or because of Love, their hurting in every arena of this world. The Entertainment world, Community world, Church world, and the Money world. You notice I didn't mention the Political world, why I'm not sure if it is a good idea, because thats a world No matter who's in the chair, No one will be pleased, as the saying goes, every man is for himself and God for us all. Everyone in what I see and know wants to be loved by someone or something. Who can find True Love? Let's start by defining the word True Love- One truly beloved or loving. * True- faithful, steadfast, loyal, honest, just- Truthful, consistent * Love- strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties, attraction based on sexual desires, an assurance of love,- The fatherly concern of God for humankind. We're all yearning for attention of love from either, a person whom we love, or care about, attached to and when we don't get, it leaves you feeling, sad, angry or self pity, now we end up doing something wrong to get it, maybe steal or kill. When I was a little girl coming up in the early 70's, I struggled with this. My parents was young trying to raise five kids or shall I say my mom because my dad was never there and when he was, he was very abusive. We lived in the projects and my mom was pregnant with my younger brother, with a broken leg, from him pushing her down the stairs. There was no love shown towards me or my siblings. I've never seen my mom and dad embrace each other with affection in any kind of way. What I do remember was my mom screaming from abuse, in which my sister picked up from my dad since she was the oldest. She fought with me and my brothers and the kids in the neighborhood, until we were able to fight back. The same things I see today, kids being bullied by someone who I feel whose suffering with a low self esteem, no love, no parents who care, no nothing, no community who cares, so they turn to the same people who feel the way they do, now, their murders, theves, gangstes, drug attics and drug dealers, prostitutes, molesters, so I ask, Who can find True Love? The book of John 3:16 (Amp) For God so greatly loved and desrly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. His will for the us (world) is to live to the fill, to the full until it overflows, because he loves us just that much and I do know and believe anyone who wants and desire to be loved can find it. You can find a love thats so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, so pure, so true, so secured, throughout your life, a love that endures, a love thats unconditioned, it will make you, scream jump, hollar, run, moan, rock, shake and cry, it'll make you want to pull your hair out. This love will make you crave for a imitacy that you never felt before, it'll make you so high that you just can't get enough it, it'll have you up all times of night, it'll wash you until you look brand new, itll make you love like never before. It'll make you love like never before, so I ask again, Who can find True Love? When you think life is over thimk again, its not, its just begun. JEREMIAH 29-11 (Amp) For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. In your spare time when your feeling life is not fair for whatever reason, take a moment to read this. I was in this place of despair of rejection of loneliness, then a sweet voice inside spoke and said arise my daughter. He said I love you, dont worry. I was eight years old when I first heard God speak to me
