Stripped Bare by Shannon Baker is "A must read" (Alex Kava, New York Times bestselling author) that stars a female Longmire in the atmospheric Nebraska Sandhills. Kate Fox is living the dream. She’s married to Grand County Sheriff Ted Conner, the heir to her beloved Nebraska Sandhills cattle ranch, where they live with Kate’s orphaned teenage niece, Carly. With the support of the well-connected Fox Clan, which includes Kate’s eight boisterous and interfering siblings, Ted’s reelection as Grand County Sheriff is virtually assured. That leaves Kate to the solitude and satisfaction of Frog Creek, her own slice of heaven. One night Kate answers a shattering phone call from Roxy at the Bar J. Carly’s granddad Eldon, owner of the ranch, is dead and Ted has been shot and may never walk again. Kate vows to find the killer. She soon discovers Ted responded so quickly to the scene because he was already at the Bar J . . . in Roxy’s bed. And to add to her woes, Carly has gone missing. Kate finds out that Eldon was considering selling his ranch to an obscenely rich environmentalist. Some in town hate the idea of an outsider buying up land, others are desperate to sell . . . and some might kill to get their way. As she becomes the victim of several “accidents,” Kate knows she must find the killer before it’s too late. . . .

They don’t call it the Strip for nothing. . . . In this sinfully sexy Las Vegas romance from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, a man who has it all reunites with a woman who takes it all off. Living in Sin City, Finn McCormick is no stranger to one-night stands, but the last person he expects to find losing big on the casino floor is a former high school fling. Even though Macey Webster’s clearly down on her luck, she’s still a knockout, and she’s dressed like a stripper—because she is one. Drunk off an unfamiliar cocktail of lust, pity, and compassion, Finn offers to pay Macey’s debts if she cuddles up to him around town . . . and does whatever he wants between the sheets. Macey came to Vegas for one reason only: money. She’s got a young daughter to support, and the tips really are bigger in Vegas. But when she blows her earnings on blackjack, her guardian angel is the rich boy who once stole her heart and never called her back. Although Macey would love to turn the tables on Finn, she can’t afford to refuse his proposition—and soon she’s enjoying herself much more than she cares to admit. Macey’s used to baring her flesh, but baring her soul will take far more courage. Praise for Stripped Bare “Finn is the super sexy billionaire every reader will drool over!

“Part treatise on art appreciation, part humorous on-the-road tale . . . a compelling story about the role art can play to disrupt, delay, and contribute to human engagement with the real world.” —Booklist This is a wonderful comic novel, about philosophy, the nature of art, the beauty of the ordinary, and about quirky, complete, night & day victims of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Two charming, over-anxious, germ-phobic friends, Isaac and Greg, take a road trip from Boston to Philadelphia. They are both obsessed with Marcel Duchamp, his art and his ideas, and thus the destination has to be the largest collection of Duchamp in the world, The Philadelphia Art Museum, the actual place The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even was to be delivered when it was cracked and broken in shipment. The piece is sometimes known as The Large Glass, and today it sits in the middle of a large gallery proudly displayed in its broken state which Duchamp repaired and then certified had been his intention all along. The two men are driven in a rented disinfected Winnebago by Kelly, a beautiful art scholar who smells like a mixture of lemons and fresh sawdust. They intend to pick up an ancient chocolate grinder, an exact working sculptural copy of one used in a Duchamp painting. Isaac intends to grind his own pure chocolate, which will prevent the build-up or arterial plaque, because his mother died of a stroke. Every action has its own suitable reaction, and then some. Isaac hopes eventually to overcome his devotion to his many obsessions and to re-enter the world, evidently his version of the real world. He is not an unreliable narrator, he is a hyper-reliable narrator, consumed by his own attention and thrilled with the connections he sees everywhere all at once. Of course when he finally gets to the museum he must dress-up as a woman to visit the collection. “It’s a sweet story, and it builds inevitably to a happy ending.” —Kirkus “Clever, funny, and fun, and filled with great discussions about art.” —BookRiot “Bright aesthetic discussion amid mishap; not just for the college-nostalgic but for anyone who enjoys a rush of ideas while being entertained.” —Library Journal
A British woman in her mid-years, was finally catapulted into her worst months of shame and self-destruction, after thirty years battling with mental health issues including depression, anxiety and a spending addiction incurring 50k debt. This is a true story based on the experiences of the author Sharon Bull, who in 2010 lost almost everything, including her life, but it wasn’t until after her failed suicide attempt Sharon finally faced up to her fears. She transformed her life in a way that will inspire and encourage others to realise they can do the same, no matter how impossible it may seem. This is a heartfelt journey in which the author strips herself bare, allowing readers to see behind the façade we can so often portray to others. There will certainly be aspects of this story many relate to after reading her honest and open accounts about situations and circumstances that were repeatedly determined by past issues. The book also lifts the lid on the toxic effects our society can have on people's lives, and the huge pressure we put on ourselves as we tirelessly strive to live out the perfect lifestyles seen in magazines, adverts and media. It also helps to break down the stigma attached to mental illness and how our perceptions of others can be far from their reality.

Israel: Stripped Bare is a book about the brutal reality of Israels existence, written from a perspective of an Arab-Jew. Some of these articles were already published in Sephardic Heritage Update, and some have been added over the years. It becomes crucial to see Israels existence through the eyes of the Levantine prison, outside of the European perspective of the Jewish State. The book provokes serious ideas and thoughts concerning the future relationship between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East and the possible contribution of Jews born in Arab and Muslim countries to the future cultural symbiosis of this historical crossroads.
