So, pretending to be her own companion, she decides to seek out information about her intended by meeting with his secretary—a man who soon beguiles her. But Lady Cordelia doesn't know the truth—the man can't resist is really her intended, Daniel Sinclair. Daniel has nearly won the wager he made with three of London's most eligible bachelors. While two of his compatriots have surrendered to the shackles of marriage, he's remained free to woo any woman he chooses. Yet duty forces him to consider Lady Cordelia, so, determined to find a way to escape honor intact, he continues the masquerade he started. Each finds the other completely irresistible, but when they uncover their mutual mistaken identities, Daniel and Cordelia must make the most important choice of all...

Lady Audley’s Secret (1862) was one of the most widely read novels in the Victorian period. The novel exemplifies “sensation fiction” in featuring a beautiful criminal heroine, an amateur detective, blackmail, arson, violence, and plenty of suspenseful action. To its contemporary readers, it also offered the thrill of uncovering blackmail and criminal violence within the homes of the upper class. The novel makes trenchant critiques of Victorian gender roles and social stereotypes, and it creates significant sympathy for the heroine, despite her criminal acts, as she suffers from the injustices of the “marriage market” and rebels against them. This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction and a broad selection of primary source material, including reproductions of the twenty-two woodcut illustrations from the London Journal serialization of the novel, extracts from two Victorian dramatizations of the work, satirical commentaries, and contemporary reviews.

Yet the old secrets remain and come back to haunt Sarah in the form of the man who destroyed her innocence years ago and now threatens that of George's sister and even of his fiancée. Sarah, it seems, may have to sacrifice her own chance of happiness once more in order to protect that of the man she has never stopped loving.

The horrors of September 11, 2001, continue to haunt America. Even so, from the ashes of that tragedy came biblical signs from God that carry a message intended for the entire world to see. "Good News, Babylon" takes an in-depth look at prophesies of 9/11 to reveal God's warning to mankind. Using scriptural evidence, Dr. David Randolph studies the two most common signs of 9/11-the Cross of Jesus Christ found in the rubble of the World Trade Center and the image of the devil in the plumes of smoke after the attack-to prove the existence of God. Dr. Randolph also draws parallels between 9/11 and ancient Babylon, comparing and contrasting the warning signs given to Babylon with those from 9/11. He then examines the prophesies of Isaiah and Joel, delves into the Mother of Christ Crusade, the Fatima Apparitions, the Mother Cabrini Shrine, and other modern-day phenomena that included the hidden signs of 9/11. With in-depth research and commentary, "Good News, Babylon" offers a detailed study of 9/11.

England, 1919. In Anna Lee Huber’s latest mystery, former Secret Service agent Verity Kent is finding that life after wartime offers its own share of danger . . . The Great War may be over, but for many, there are still obstacles on the home front. Reconciling with her estranged husband makes Verity sympathetic to her friend Ada’s marital difficulties. Bourgeois-bred Ada, recently married to the Marquess of Rockham, is overwhelmed trying to navigate the ways of the aristocracy. And when Lord Rockham is discovered shot through the heart with a bullet from Ada’s revolver, Verity fears her friend has made a fatal blunder. While striving to prove Ada’s innocence, Verity is called upon for another favor. The sister of a former Secret Service colleague has been killed in what authorities believe was a home invasion gone wrong. The victim’s war work—censoring letters sent by soldiers from the front—exposed her to sensitive, disturbing material. Verity begins to suspect these two unlikely cases may be linked. But as the connections deepen, the consequences—not just for Verity, but for Britain—grow more menacing than she could have imagined. Praise for Anna Lee Huber’s Treacherous Is the Night “A thrilling mystery that supplies its gutsy heroine with plenty of angst-ridden romance.” —Kirkus Reviews “A splendid sequel. . . . Huber combines intricate puzzles with affecting human drama.” —Publishers Weekly “Masterful. . . . Just when you think the plot will zig, it zags. . . . Deeply enjoyable.” —Criminal Element
