Summary

How did you first learn about sex? If you grew up in the 1970s, it may have been from a gleefully lusty tour guide named Xaviera HollanderIn the late 1960s -- that era of sexual chaos, when Playboy Clubs and love-ins were competing for national attention -- a beautiful, intelligent young Dutch secretary named Xaviera de Vries moved to New York, grew swiftly tired of her desk job . . . and soon became the most visible and glamorous madam the city had ever seen. As Xaviera Hollander, she published a shockingly candid account of her life behind the brothel door. The Happy Hooker shot straight to the top of the bestseller lists, sold more than fifteen million copies, and made this enterprising young woman an international phenomenon. Thirty years later, these delightfully explicit tales of the '60s and '70s swingers' scene -- including countless jaw-dropping stories of lesbianism, bondage, fetishism, and more -- remain as titillating as ever, charged with the mix of shrewd observation and uninhibited appetite that made Hollander an irresistible storyteller. The Happy Hooker is a classic: the world's greatest book on the world's oldest profession.

    Where do I start?
    
    Over the years of psychic medium work I have frequently been asked,
    
    "When did you know you were psychic?"
    
    For me it was very early in my childhood. I believe we are all born with psychic abilities and as a child my mother supported my gift. Many people ignore or are in denial about their psychic ability as they're just not ready. Believe it or not, all of us to some degree have psychic abilities.
    
    Throughout my family history our psychic abilities are well documented. My children also have the gift and choose to use their abilities at their own discretion.
    
    Over the years I have trained many talented people who have become Spiritual Teachers, Reiki Masters, Clairvoyants and Healers. Other students have done my programs for their own personal spiritual journey. I love my students as they come from all walks of life and beliefs.
    
    I love that spirituality has no denomination.
    
    The work I do is active, interactive and thought provoking. During my 'Evenings with Spirit', I speak to those who have passed over in front of a live audience. What comes through from time to time is both exciting and riveting. Some come to my live shows with reservations or skepticism and leave wanting to come back or to make a booking for a personal consultation.
    
    All I ask is that people approach what I do with an open mind.
    
    I am pleased you have taken the time to read my introduction. My invitation for you to come into my world through this book is genuine as I know many of you with natural psychic ability will be curious to know my story. Having the gift can be a lonely and confusing path to follow at times but through my book I hope to be able to help you to find some of the answers you may be seeking.

    Regina’s Calcaterra memoir, Etched in Sand, is an inspiring and triumphant coming-of-age story of tenacity and hope. Regina Calcaterra is a successful lawyer, New York State official, and activist. Her painful early life, however, was quite different. Regina and her four siblings survived an abusive and painful childhood only to find themselves faced with the challenges of the foster-care system and intermittent homelessness in the shadows of Manhattan and the Hamptons. A true-life rags-to-riches story, Etched in Sand chronicles Regina’s rising above her past, while fighting to keep her brother and three sisters together through it all. Beautifully written, with heartbreaking honesty, Etched in Sand is an unforgettable reminder that regardless of social status, the American Dream is still within reach for those who have the desire and the determination to succeed.

    Gabriela Parson joins a prestigious law firm in Vancouver expecting the usual discomfort of starting a new job; instead, she is faced with her one-night stand from years ago—none other than her new boss—Landon Godchild. 
    
    Old sparks reignite, but Gabriela has principles and one dating rule: absolutely no office romance. Landon, in contrast, is determined to continue what they started if only he could convince Gabriela that rules are meant to be broken. But an anonymous letter brings his efforts to a halt and sends Gabriela searching for the truth. 
    
    Up against the unknown, she must navigate through a minefield of frustration, fear, and mistrust as her pursuit for innocence propels her deep into a bizarre vortex, where reality blurs into illusion, and evil looms in the shadows. 
    
    Is any love strong enough to withstand such dynamics?
