If anything ever happens to me, promise me that you will see that there is an investigation....And find Ann Rule and ask her to write my story," Sheila Blackthorne Bellush told her sister after she divorced multimillionaire Allen Blackthorne. Now, in perhaps the first book ever written at a victim's request, America's Number One bestselling true-crime writer, Ann Rule, untangles a horrific web of lies that culminated in Sheila's savage murder more than ten years after she left Blackthorne. When beautiful, blond Sheila married the charming, handsome Blackthorne, she was convinced she had found her perfect soul mate, and helped him reach his goal of living the privileged life of the country club set. But behind Allen's smooth facade, she discovered a violent, controlling sociopath -- a liar, a scam artist, a sexual deviant. When she finally fled with their two young daughters, she was skeletally thin, bruised, and beaten. Although Sheila recovered, remarried, and was starting a new life and family, she still felt she was doomed. Joyously pregnant, she and her new husband expecting quadruplets, Sheila still feared Blackthorne, who had sworn to her he would monitor her every move and "every breath you take." And, in fact, Blackthorne inevitably tracked her down, as did her killer, who left her in a pool of blood marked by the tiny footprints of her two-year-old toddlers. The questions remained: Could the authorities ever link Sheila's murder to Blackthorne himself? Was his true obsession high-stakes golf and his extravagant pink mansion -- or was it to destroy Sheila? Following a trail of deception from Oregon and Hawaii to Texas and Florida, Ann Rule gained complete access to Sheila's family, friends, and neighbors, as well as to the detectives and prosecutors on the case. With Every Breath You Take, Ann Rule has written a heart-pounding account of obsession, revenge, and murder that will enthrall readers from beginning to end.

Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think. There is a club in this world you do not join knowingly. One day you are just a member. It is “The Life-Changing Events Club.” The fee to join the club is hurt beyond belief, payable in full, up front, for a lifetime membership. The benefit of the club is a newfound perspective on life, and a deep understanding that you may not be happy about your current situation, but you can be happy in your current situation. The club does not provide a directory of its members, but when you look into a member’s eye, you can tell that they, too, are part of the club. Members are allowed to exchange brief eye contact that says, “I didn’t know.” Being a member of this club is the last thing anyone intentionally wants in their life. Being a member of this club is the best thing that ever happens to a person in their life, and there is not a person who would ever give up their membership. If you really look and know what you are looking for, you can spot the club’s members. They are the ones who perform a random act of kindness; people who do something for someone who can never repay them. They are the people spreading joy and optimism and lifting people’s spirits even when their own heart has been broken. I have paid my dues. My lifetime membership arrived today. Not by mail, but by a deep inner feeling I cannot describe. It is the best club I never wanted to be part of. But I am – for life. Here is my story. Twenty-six years ago, my mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship. I committed myself to a lifestyle, I made the sacrifices, I put in the time, I starved myself, I even shaved my head. I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short. For many years, after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport. That the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack. I hated wrestling for it. To put every ounce of your soul into achieving something and to get nothing out of it in return was beyond my comprehension and I just could not justify it in my head. Until I had adversity in my life. And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling actually has given back to me. Much more than I ever knew. Every Breath is Gold is much more than a wrestling book. It is an inspirational book on life, love, loss and belief. You will never look at life the same way again. Every Breath Is Gold Trilogy - includes: * 6 Minutes Wrestling With Life (Book 1) * Again (Book 2) * Your Soul Knows (Book 3)

He won’t let anyone mess with that—especially not the feisty and gorgeous Yasmin, who seems more interested in getting to know passengers than selling them vacation packages. As they sail across open waters, Yasmin and West fight storms, seasickness, and each other, until they can’t deny their connection any longer. Every tantalizing kiss takes their breaths away … but if they can’t get over the past, it might destroy their future. ~ The Sea Swept novels are stand-alone contemporary romance novels and can be read in any order ~ Keywords: photography, romance, new adult romance, contemporary romance, stand alone, stand-alone romance, sexy, beach read, vacation, Caribbean, cruise ship
