At thirty-three, Warner Truman is one of the richest men on the planet, a spa mogul who buys and sells resorts at will. He holds powerful executives' careers in his well-groomed hands. Nothing is beyond Warner's reach...until he meets her. Stunning, tantalizing and perverse, Taddy Brill captivates Warner's carnal desire like no woman he's ever met.

Undiagnosed Unscrupulous And Unbeatable by Monty Nereim

Original Title: Undiagnosed Unscrupulous And Unbeatable

Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable chronicles the life of a quick-witted Jewish kid who battled child abuse, manic depression, personality disorder and alcohol to become one of history’s greatest and most controversial handball players. Had these issues not been a part of his life, would he still have become a legendary superstar in his sport? Conflict and triumph have many stories, non like the saga of Paul Haber. Charisma and manipulation bolstered his admiration and support by many well-intentioned enablers. Brazen intimidation, unscrupulous conduct and exceptional athleticism accounted for his succession of demoralizing victories over his opponents. His clashes with the very hand that fed him played out in juicy detail in Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Argosy and Ace magazines as well as newspapers coast-to-coast, including the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Haber was both loved and hated by many but the press and fans salivated over his every appearance. He rose to fame and misfortune upsetting everyone and everything in his path. Multi-millionaire Robert Kendler and others became his unwitting sponsors, providing money and excuses for his irresponsible actions, while applauding his unprecedented string of victories on the handball circuit. The unflappable dark prince of handball was unfazed by authority. Time in jail, probation and commitment to a state mental institution provided colorful gossip but no real changes to the character of the unbeatable champ. Even his lucky escape from the Chicago Mob had little impact on Haber, until later. Four failed marriages and an equal number of fatherless kids made for an interesting challenge for lawyers and court ordered support demands. Haber’s callous disregard for responsibility equally matched his disdain for his opponents in handball. His reputation as a womanizer as well as his training regimen of cigarettes, booze and carousing were the antithesis of what the United States Handball Association attempted to convey to the public and defied his status as the nation’s best handball player. Haber’s celebrity status climaxed with his challenge to the reigning national racquetball champion, Dr. Bud Muelheisen creating a furor over which sport was superior; handball or racquetball. For six years Haber reigned king of the hill in handball, and for years after he milked it as former royalty among handball enthusiasts. Labeled the bad boy of the sport, he relished his status as an unemployed “handball bum.” The Paul Haber story is an intriguing chronicle of this gifted but cursed superstar of the 1960’s and 70’s when handball was at is zenith in popularity. Nereim chronicles the significant events in Haber’s life that render him the unlikely paradigm of legend and tragedy.

Emancipating New York by David Nathaniel Gellman

Original Title: Emancipating New York

Gellman presents a comprehensive examination of the reasons for and timing of New York's dismantling of slavery. It was the northern state with the greatest number of slaves, more than 20,000 in 1790. Newspapers, pamphlets, legislative journals, and organizational records reveal how whites and blacks, citizens and slaves, activists and politicians, responded to the changing ideologies and evolving political landscape of the early national period and concluded that slavery did not fit with their state's emerging identity. Support for the institution atrophied, and eventually the preponderance of New York's political leaders endorsed gradual abolition.
