A new breathtaking novel from Natalie Standiford about love and trust during the Cold War. Laura Reid goes to Leningrad for a semester abroad as Cold War paranoia is peaking in 1982. She meets a young Russian artist named Alexei and soon, with Alexei as her guide, Laura immerses herself in the real Russia--a crazy world of wild parties, black-market books and music, and smuggled letters to dissidents. She must keep the relationship secret; associating with Americans is dangerous for Alexei, and if caught, Laura could be sent home and Alexei put under surveillance or worse. At the same time, she's been warned that Soviets often latch onto Americans in hopes of marrying them and thus escaping to the United States. But she knows Alexei loves her. Right? As June approaches--when Laura must return to the United States--Alexei asks Laura to marry him. She's only nineteen and doesn't think she's ready to settle down. But what if Alexei is the love of her life? How can she leave him behind? If she has a chance to change his life, to rescue him from misery, shouldn't she take it?

Former NFL wife Cyndy Feasel tells the tragic story of her family’s journey into chaos and darkness resulting from the damage her husband suffered due to football-related concussions and head trauma—and the faith that saved her. “If I’d only known what I loved the most would end up killing me and taking away everything I loved, I would have never done it.” – Grant Feasel Grant Feasel spent ten years in the NFL, playing 117 games as a center and a long snapper mostly for the Seattle Seahawks. The skull-battering, jaw-shaking collisions he absorbed during those years ultimately destroyed his marriage and fractured his family. Grant died on July 15, 2012, at the age of 52, the victim of alcohol abuse and a degenerative brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Cyndy Feasel watched their life together become a living hell as alcohol became Grant’s medication for a disease rooted in the scores of concussions he suffered on the football field. Helmet-to-helmet collisions opened the door to CTE and transformed him from a sunny, strong, and loving man into a dark shadow of his former self. In this raw and emotional memoir that takes a closer look at the destruction wrought by a game millions love, Cyndy describes in painful and excruciating detail what can happen to an NFL player and his family when the stadium empties and the lights go down. A powerful tale of warning for football moms and NFL wives everywhere, After the Cheering Stops is also a story of the hard-won hope found in God’s presence when everything else falls apart.

BLURB Johnny Fullmer is taken aback when his boss asks him to help, his wife, Márin, with her woman's club event. When he meets the gorgeous woman, he's surprised to discover he's to take part in a date for charity auction. After Márin outbids everyone else, Johnny is flummoxed. What's going on? EXCERPT The next morning after the secretary brought my coffee, while perusing the morning reports, the intercom buzzed. "Yes, Glenda." "Mrs. Ronson is on line one, sir." "She wants me?" I pictured her wearing the tiny bikini she wore at the Spring Fling shindig last month at the Ronson mansion and my groin tensed. "Yes sir. She specifically asked for Jonathan Fullmer." Mirán had tried to start a conversation with me that day and on two other occasions, but my brain froze. "Thank you." "You're welcome sir." I couldn't think of a response that wasn't dorky and around Mirán I wanted to be nothing but cool. "Hello." "Yes, Jonathan. This is Mirán Ronson. Did my husband speak with you?" There was no way around it. Dorky or not, I was going to have to talk with the boss's beauty queen. "Yes, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Ronson, may I ask what this all about?" "Mirán. Please call me Mirán and I'll call you Johnny." "Fine. What's this all about, Mirán." "I'll explain everything to you when you get here." "What if I refuse?" She took her time answering, "That would be unfortunate," there was another pause, then, "I wouldn't advise that." I sighed. Nothing like having the boss's wife pissed at me. "I'll be there by noon." There seemed to be a self-satisfied pause. "Thank you, you won't be sorry. I'll meet you in the lobby." An hour and thirty minutes later, I handed the keys for my BMW to the valet, and strode into the lobby of the Fallbrook Inn. Like an angel in a spotlight, Mirán glowed compared to the dull drab inconsequential people that busied themselves around her. Her bright, friendly smile indicated her pleasure at seeing me and I felt a tiny bit more comfortable. As she sauntered in my direction, I did the same and met her half way. She held out her hand and welcomed me in her moderately deep, sensual, feminine voice, "Thank you for coming. It's for a good cause." I took her hand, and she edged closer. Up to now, I'd made a point of avoiding the dazzling wife of the man who signed my paychecks. I'd sensed an interest on her part and that made me nervous. Going against my nature of trying to bed every good looking female who showed an interest, I consigned myself, to admiring her from afar. As she closed the distance between us, I no longer had the option of ignoring her. Close enough for an embrace, her gardenia scented cologne wafted into my nostrils and then…she kissed my cheek. The effect of her bouquet, her kiss, and her closeness while holding her soft, elegant hand left me intoxicated. Every ounce of breath escaped my lungs and I wasn't able to breathe again until she edged back. Moreover, my heart beat against my breastbone a million miles per hour. I lost my cool and struggled to respond to her, "I yah…um what is this…all about, m-ma'am." She laughed. It was the first time I was ever close enough that I heard her laugh and it was delightful. "Do I make you nervous?"

13 Alben auf Platz 1, 7 Grammys, 5 Kinder, 3 Ehen, 1 Buch Nur drei Musiker weltweit haben als Solokünstler und mit ihrer Band jeweils über 100 Millionen Tonträger verkauft – Phil Collins ist einer von ihnen. »Another Day in Paradise«, »You Can’t Hurry Love«, »One More Night«, »Sussudio« – große Songs mit großen Geschichten. Mit »In the Air Tonight« etwa hat der Ausnahmemusiker das Ende einer seiner drei Ehen in einen zeitlosen Hit verwandelt. Überhaupt – dieses Leben! Phil Collins erzählt rückhaltlos alles: von einem Filmdreh mit den Beatles, von Sessions mit Eric Clapton, Tina Turner und Adele, von der großen Zeit mit Genesis und davon, wie er auf einer Tournee heiratet, um sich später via Fax wieder scheiden zu lassen – und Jahre darauf gänzlich im Alkohol zu ertrinken. Phänomenale Höhen wie bizarre Tiefen: In diesem Buch ruft jede Zeile: »Take a Look at Me Now!«
