    Arthur J. Burks was born on September 13, 1898 in Waterville, Washington into a family of farmers.  Little is recorded about his early life save that he served in the United States Marine Corp during World War I.  On March 23rd, 1918 happier times were unveiled when he married Blanche Fidelia Lane in Sacramento, California.  The union would produce four children: Phillip Charles, Wasle Carmen, Arline Mary and Gladys Lura.  He continued to serve in Marine Corps in World War I, and after being stationed in the Caribbean, where he witnessed and was inspired by the native voodoo rituals, he began writing in 1920.  These lurid tales of the supernatural found a welcoming home in the publishing houses of the wildly popular pulp magazines.  His first sale was to the magazine Weird Tales.  In 1928 he resigned from the Marine Corps in order to be able to write full-time.  It was an excellent decision.  He rapidly became one of the "million-word-a-year" men, a key contributor to the pulp magazines.  Over his career he wrote in the order of 800 stories for the pulps. His forte was to be able to take any household object and instantly generate a clever, plausible and entertaining plot based around it. His byline was never far from the pulp covers.  Burks wrote primarily in the genres of aviation, detective, adventure, sports (specializing in boxing) and weird menace.  With such a prolific output he developed several series for the pulps, including the Kid Friel boxing stories in Gangster Stories, and the Dorus Noel undercover-detective stories for All Detective Magazine, set in Manhattan's Chinatown.  After almost two decades of high speed delivery the pressure of producing so much fiction caused him to rein his output back in from the late-1930s.  With war once again menacing the country, both in Europe and the Pacific, Burks returned to active duty as the U.S. entered World War II.  When he retired after the war it was with the rank of lieutenant colonel.  Burks moved to Paradise in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1948.  During the '60s, he expanded the subjects he wrote about to include works on metaphysics and the paranormal. In his later years, he developed this into lectures on paranormal activities and gave readings.  He continued to live and write in Paradise until his death there on May 13th, 1974.

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . . 
    Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her. 
    He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . . 
    "Victoria." 
    Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck. 
    "It's in your nature," he murmured. "The desire to be taken." 
    In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

    For the past year, sleep paralysis has been little more than a thorn in Natalia's side. That is, until she meets Korin, a strange but beautiful alien being who makes her question everything she knows about the universe.  
    
     
    Life-changing love almost feels like an invasion.
    
     
    I won’t bore you with details about the mysterious medical issues I’ve had over the last year;
     
    the sudden severe allergies to food and medication, the sleep paralysis. All I’ll tell you is that they turned my life upside down.
     
    But I’m a rational person.
     
    Naturally, I assumed that my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw the strange figures standing over me.
     
    But it felt so freakishly real;
     
    especially one face in particular that always stayed with me long after I woke up.
     
    Something about him always drew me in and I knew he was different. He made me feel different.
     
    All my life, romance has felt like something that was reserved for everyone but me. I’d accepted that the only love in my life would be experienced through my artwork.
     
    Now I’m questioning everything I know about myself, about reality, and especially about love.
