With an Introduction by Kathryn White. "He saw her wounded, and bleeding to death; saw her ashy countenance, and her wasting eyes ... turned piteously on himself, as if imploring him to save her from the fate that was dragging her to the grave..." Ann Radcliffe, author of 'The Romance of the Forest' and 'The Mysteries of Udolpho', is the high priestess of the gothic novel. In THE ITALIAN, first published in 1797, she creates a chilling, atmospheric concoction of thwarted lovers, ruined abbeys, imprisonment and dark passages, with an undercurrent of seething sexuality and presents us with a cunning villain in the sinister monk Schedoni. A contemporary review commented on, 'Radcliffe's uncommon talent for exhibiting, with picturesque touches of genius, the vague and horrid shapes which imagination bodies forth...' Radcliffe's work was hugely influential and H.P. Lovecraft, early twentieth century master of the uncanny, was impressed by the, "eerie touch of setting and action contributing artistically to the impression of illimitable frightfulness which she wished to convey." The novel remains a fascinating, engrossing and unnerving masterpiece of gothic fiction. AUTHOR: Although Ann Radcliffe did not invent the Gothic novel, she was a major factor in its development and popularity, and her work was very influential on many later writers, including Jane Austen.

Amanda's idyllic tropical vacation to Bermuda has morphed into a battlefield. Her passionate nights with Evan send her ex-boyfriend, Jeff, into a jealous rage. On a cruise ship, there's nowhere to run - and few places to hide.

Even worse, revelations about the band's dangerous history put Amanda and Kayla in deadly peril.

Amanda must delve for hidden strength she never knew she possessed. And she'll have to trust in the one man she has the most reason to fear - the man whose touch can cause her to lose all semblance of sanity.

Half of all proceeds of this novella benefit battered women's shelters.

Wine-Dark Dreams is the second of four novellas in the Bermuda Nights series. Due to the strong sexual content and adult situations, this romantic suspense story is recommended for readers aged 17+. The first three novellas have cliff-hanger endings, which lead to the final novella with a happily-ever-after.

Ophelia adores Boston and has lived in the region for nearly all her adult life. She's worked in Cambridge, hanging out at the Irish pubs and watching sculling on the Charles. She was at the first Celtics game at the Fleet Center and has pub-hopped her way down Lansdowne Street behind Fenway Park. She's seen the Nutcracker at the Wang and savored Locke-Ober before they closed. Ophelia's been on the Boston to Bermuda cruise ship run three times and highly recommends the adventure! Most of all, Ophelia cherishes the spirit of Boston - a unique city unlike any other in the world.

Boston Strong.
