rapped in paradise "I'm sure you already know this, but I have to tell you, your home is beautiful," Paige said, walking along the periphery of the library, taking in the leather-bound titles as Micah followed closely behind. "And I'm sure you already know this, but so are you," Micah said. "It was so important to me that you love this place as much as I do," he continued quietly. "But I knew. I knew the moment you saw it that you had fallen in love." A warm rush raced over Paige's skin as he moved his hands to her waist. She looked up at him, her eyelids heavy. "How could I not?" she said. "It's ... fascinating." As they gazed into each other's eyes, Paige felt the same dizzying sensation she'd experienced at the restaurant the night before, but it was okay. She was beginning to enjoy it-this feeling of being lost in his eyes. "You haven't even seen the best part yet," Micah said, his voice throaty. "The best part?" she repeated, temporarily incapable of forming her own thoughts. "The garden," Micah said, his eyes flashing with excitement. "You have to see the garden."

The Charmed Ones travel to Hollywood to attend a big bash hosted by Kevin Peterson, Paige's old flame. Kevin is holding the party at his recently purchased mansion, which he was able to afford because of rumors that it's haunted! Sure enough, ghostly goings-on begin almost immediately, but everyone believes that Kevin is the one behind the "haunting." He confides in Paige that he is not. The ghost reveals himself to be Robert Maxwell, a star of stage and screen who vanished under mysterious circumstances in 1926 -- right after receiving a singing telegram.

It is only with the able assistance of their ghostly ally that they and the rest of the partygoers stand a chance.
A Deadly Prediction With a knowing smile, the tarot reader walked over to Prue, Piper, and Phoebe's table. "I am Elena. You wish me to look into your future with my cards?" This is going to be a joke, Prue told herself as Elena laid down the first card. Elena's hand began to tremble. Prue jerked her gaze to the fortune-teller's face. It grew pale, a ghostly white, as though all the blood had been drained from it. "What is it?" Prue asked, trying to ignore the irrational prickle of dread that was raising the hair on the nape of her neck. "Th-this card has always been in the deck, but I've never drawn it during a reading," Elena stammered. She set it on the table, and Prue saw that it showed a crumbling black tower struck by lightning. "What does it mean?" Prue asked. Elena trembled again. "It is the most powerful card in the deck," she said slowly, her voice an ominous whisper. "It means that darkness will surround you."

Book 1 in the Chrestomanci Quartet series.
A Charmed Life is a contemporary fairytale that tells what is like to grow up as a maiden in a castle where ancient curses and grisly events from centuries ago live on between its stone walls. Liza Campbell offers a compelling look at what it is like to grow up with enormous privilege and yet watch the father she idealizes destroy himself, his family, and his heritage.
A Rolls Royce Silver Cloud drove him to airports; the British film industry kowtowed to his power; the great Hollywood studios fawned at his feet. Sir Alexander Korda, one of the world's most flamboyant movie tycoons, rose from obscurity in rural Hungary to become a legendary filmmaker. With him were his brothers, Zoltan and Vincent, all living charmed lives in circles that included H. G. Wells, Sir Lawrence Olivier, Marlena Dietrich, Vivien Leigh, and Merle Oberon, who was soon to be Alex's wife. But along with Alex's flair for success was an equally powerful impulse for destruction. Now, Vincent's son, Michael Korda, in the first book of his memoirs, recalls the enchanted figures of his childhood...the glory days of the Korda brothers' great films...and then their heartbreaking, tragic end.
Withdrawing her toe and standing elegantly next to the bath, Paige told the second servant that the jazz station he had just selected would be more than adequate for her needs. When both were gone, she locked the door, slid off her robe, and removed the towel from her hair. She eased herself into the bath, which felt heavenly, and held her breath as she dunked herself, wetting her hair. Then she got out once more, put on her robe, and orbed away in a shimmer of blue-white light. She reappeared in her room in the Towers, a very different kind of wardrobe laid out for her. Phoebe and Piper had already changed, with Chloe fussing about them, handling a few last-minute details. The young woman didn't even jump around an orb anymore, which was nice. She had the makings of a truly terrific Wiccan. "My alibi's in place," Paige said, tossing off her robe and trying not to think about what she might do if their imminent encounter did not go as planned. In moments she was dressing for war.
All IN All, paige thought, GOLDEN GATE Is A super spoocky place with NO ONE ELSE Around. "Timothy?" she called, hoping he was here somewhere, maybe just hidden by the roling clouds of fog. "Where are you?" A full minute passed, maybe more, before he answered. "Back here, Paige," he said, sounding strangely distant. "In the trees." She looked to where the sound of his voice had come from-a thick growth of trees across the grassy patch and flower be is from the windmill. Staring through the mist between the trees, she finally spotted a pale oval she thought must be Timothy's face. "What are you doing in there?" she asked with a nervous chuckle. "Come on out here." "It's safer in the trees," Timothy replied. "Safer?" Paige echoed. "Safe from what?"
00* SNAkES. "Ahh! Ahh!" Doreen shifted from one foot to another to avoid a mass of wiggling green, yellow, and black snakes. She was terrified and fell into Larry's arms. "Okay, dear. Time to go." Larry slung Doreen's arm over his shoulder and helped her stumble forward. He started into the next tunnel and stopped dead. "I hope there's another way back." "Me too." Paige shone her flashlight inside the narrow stone corridor. The passage floor was covered with snakes. Several began shedding their skins. "Cross-country," Tammy said, taking charge. Ignoring the snakes sliding out of the rock pile, she climbed it. "This way." Paige let Joyce and Daniel go first, then steadied Larry as he carried Doreen up the rock pile. When Paige reached the top, she realized that cutting through the woods was only a slightly better alternative than taking the tunnels. The ground was alive with thousands of writhing snakes.
Lucile Marshall was absolutely terrified. "The evil moaned. the evil's been set free," she Then, as abruptly as she'd lost her composure, Lucile regained it. She stood up straight, shaking free of Paige and Phoebe, and looked Maxwell Harrington in straight in the eye. "You fool. You pompous, arrogant idiot," she said. Then her eyes rolled back in her head and, gracefully as a silk handkerchief, Lucile Marshall folded in a dead faint to the floor.

flie first incantation Phoebe's heart pounded as she clutched The Book of Shadows. Maybe I should just put the book back, she thought. But she couldn't. She had to read on. " 'Hear now the words of the witches/ " she chanted. " "The secrets we hid in the night.'" A bolt of lightning shot through the sky, followed by the rumble of thunder. Phoebe jolted upright. Could the incantation summon lightning and thunder? she wondered. She shook her head hard, trying to knock that crazy thought away. She returned to the book. " 'The oldest of gods are invoked here. The great work of magic is sought.'" Lightning tore through the sky again. Then a strange light faintly glistened in tike center of the room. Phoebe laid her trembling hands on the ancient book. Had she somehow summoned this light by reading the incantation? What would happen if she finished it? the Ancient Power. Bring your powers to we sisters three. We want the power. Give us the power! Based on the TV series.

"You're not going anywhere!' Paige said to the Anubi demon, holding a ball offire over his face menacingly. "Not until you tell us what you've done with all the witches you've taken." The Anubi let out a low, menacing laugh and a chill ran down Piper's spine. "They're all dead," he told them. "But we still have their blood if you're interested." Piper's breath caught in her throat as the Anubi turned its massive head toward a line of more than twenty canisters on the windowsill. If each one held the blood of a different witch, then there were even more victims than they had thought. Suddenly, Piper felt her whole body go numb. She turned and looked at Tessa and Taryn who were huddled together by the door. "That means that Tina is ... Tina is actually ..." Taryn took one step away from her sister and fainted, her body falling limp on the floor. Tessa crumbled next to her and started to sob. Her heart twisting painfully, Piper turned slowly back to the Anubi, lifted her hands, and just as Phoebe, Cole, and Leo flung themselves out of harm's way, blew him to pieces.
A Captivating Camera "Looks almost perfect," Prue called from beneath the velvet drape of the antique camera. "Now, Phoebe, if you'll just unpeel yourself from Nikos and Piper, I'll take the first shot." "Who died and made her Annie Leibovitz?" Piper muttered through her gritted teeth while Phoebe stifled a snort of laughter. "Okay, looking good. Everybody ready?" Prue announced, holding her antique flashbulb aloft. "Here we go. One .. . two .. . three!" Psffitttt! Piper saw the flash go off and then, for a moment, she was utterly blinded. When the bright light subsided, she squinted painfully Then she looked down and gasped. Nikos had slithered out of her embrace and collapsed onto the floor at her feet. "Prue. ..." Piper started to say. She looked around her. Nikos, Chloe ... all the pretty young things had slumped over in heaps.
Once Chime had been the most promising mage in the land, feted and celebrated for her potential and future role in the kingdom. Then Iris, her young competitor, made a stunning leap in skill and turned Chime's world upside down. Now no longer the most powerful, no longer promised to a prince -- and still unable to harness her magic properly -- Chime was set adrift. As was the new king's cousin -- and former heir -- Lord Muller. Yet when the neighboring kingdom threatened war, Muller and Chime were tasked with uncovering the plot. Both were flawed, yet unwilling to accept a lesser destiny than they had once known. Could this quest be the opportunity for redemption -- or would it lead them to their deaths? Award-winning author Catherine Asaro, creator of The Skolian Empire, creates her first full-length fantasy novel in a world rich with magic and power. Fans who caught a glimpse of the kingdom of Aronsdale in Moonglow from the Charmed Destinies collection are delighted with the result!
SPIRIT OF THE WOLF. In the untouched forests, A magic beast appears. A savior of the land -- Or symbol of deepest fears! At a remote resort in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, a tree bursts into flames, an animal skull oozes blood, and a wolf threatens to attack, then vanishes like a ghost. The police suspect a nearly extinct Native American group that was forced off the resort's land long ago. Others blame the owners of the resort for defiling sacred tribal lands. Phoebe and Paige arrive for a pre-opening weekend and some sisterly bonding, but are soon drawn into danger by incidents both natural and unnatural. A powerful shaman holds the key to the mystery with his secret knowledge -- knowledge that is shared by the wolf haunting the land. The sisters call upon Piper, Leo, and Cole for guidance -- and summon all their powers to confront a demon as cunning as any they have ever encountered!
The door opened before they'd even had a chance to touch it. This time, though, they weren't met by a single, business suit-clad woman, but by four tall, muscular women dressed in pink sports bras, jogging shorts, and sneakers. Looking at their powerful physiques-broad shoulders, massive upper arms, corded thighs-Paige felt very small. Phoebe could take them, Paige thought. Between her martial arts skills and her levitation powers, even four Amazons didn't stand a chance. And these weren't real Amazons anyway, just figurative Amazons. She noticed that Phoebe had tensed, and believed her sister was probably weighing the odds as well. The women were smiling at them, but the mood had changed. Confrontation was in the air. "Ms. Winship is ready to see you now," one of them announced.
