Hot on the heels of her phenomenal American debut, The Ice Princess, Camilla Läckberg brings readers back to the quiet, isolated fishing village in Sweden where dangerous secrets lie just beneath the community’s tranquil surface. During an unusually hot July, detective Patrik Hedstrom and Erica Falck are enjoying a rare week at home together, nervous and excited about the imminent birth of their first baby. Across town, however, a six-year-old boy makes a gruesome discovery that will ravage their little tourist community and catapult Patrik into the center of a terrifying murder case. The boy has stumbled upon the brutally murdered body of a young woman, and Patrik is immediately called to lead the investigation. Things get even worse when his team uncovers, buried beneath the victim, the skeletons of two campers whose disappearance had baffled police for decades. The three victims’ injuries seem to be the work of the same killer, but that is impossible: the main suspect in the original kidnappings committed suicide twenty-four years ago. When yet another young girl disappears and panic begins to spread, Patrik leads a desperate manhunt to track down a ruthless serial killer before he strikes again.

Inspirational Historical Romance's Rising Star On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can scarcely believe it when he's forced off the train by a retired outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the minister she requested for her birthday. Worried this unfortunate detour will ruin his chances of finally serving a congregation of his own, Crockett is determined to escape. But when he finally gets away, he's haunted by the memory of the young woman he left behind--a woman whose dreams now hinge on him. For months, Joanna Robbins prayed for a preacher. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. A man to help her discover answers to the questions that have been on her heart for so long. But just when it seems God has answered her prayers, it turns out the parson is there against his will and has dreams of his own calling him elsewhere. Is there any way she can convince Crockett to stay in her little backwoods community? And does the attraction between them have any chance of blossoming when Joanna's outlaw father is dead set against his daughter courting a preacher?

This surprisingly reverent collection of religious humor pokes less at the message than at the messenger. Gentle enough to give your preacher, clean enough to use in the pulpit, this volume is nonetheless sharp enough to drive home its point that the clergyman does well to serve rather than be served.

BLURB The Bastard Preacher is mildly upset when his relatively young, attractive mother takes up with his boss, Sonny Riverton. Meanwhile, his fame and popularity continues to soar, even converting his prime critic, Danielle White into a fan and mistress # 2. When Michael, the heir apparent, dies from aids, Jamie Lee's ascendancy is assured and he becomes the number one backup to the reverend. EXCERPT Jamie Lee woke in a stupor. What’s that noise? He looked at his watch and sat up quickly. “Oh, my God, it’s ten after eight.” He reached for and checked his beeper. Two messages, both from Missy. He heard Gwen giggling and turned his gaze to her, lying naked, next to him. He couldn’t decide who looked better naked, her or Missy, they were both exquisite. “What are you laughing about?” “You. You aren’t even married yet and you’re already pussy whipped.” “Yeah, well, if I pull this anymore, I might not even make it to the altar.” She laughed. “Just tell her you were celebrating, knocking the viewer’s socks off by fucking Gwen’s socks off. You did you know? You were magnificent. You are magnificent.” “Very funny.” How did I end up with two beautiful insatiable women? How am I gonna keep two nymphos happy? He jumped out of bed and dressed in two minutes. “Sorry to fuck and run. Damage control, you know.” He leaned down and kissed her. “Thanks, it was even better than I thought it would be and I expected it to be spectacular.” Jamie Lee hopped out of the elevator and raced to his car, a sixty-eight Pontiac GTO, gas-guzzler. Heading straight to Renaissance Jewelers, he picked out an engagement/wedding ring set, a fancy diamond bracelet and something small for Gwen. If looks could kill, Jamie Lee would be gasping for breath from the stare Missy gave him when he got home. “Hi, sorry, I didn’t know you were going to cook dinner tonight.” “Well, I did. It’s probably overcooked and dry by now. Where were you? I called twice and left messages.” “I’m truly sorry. I turned my phone off while I was in the meeting with your father and forgot to turn it back on. He suggested, I get an engagement ring for you, so when I left the office, I visited a few jewelry stores.” Her mood picked up at the mention of an engagement ring. “You got me a ring?” “Two, really. An engagement and wedding ring. And I got you a bracelet to wrap around your pretty wrist.” She bounced around on the couch and stuck her hand out. “Well don’t keep me in suspense.” Her fingers began to wiggle. “Let’s see it?” He handed the ring box to her. She opened it and her eyes immediately widened. “Oh, Jamie Lee, this is stunning.” She glanced up at him. “How did you—?” “I didn’t, I charged it to Soldiers of the Lord.” “Well, it’s gorgeous.” She put the five-caret diamond engagement ring on her left hand and wriggled her fingers. “How does it look?” “It looks like it was made for you.” She stood up and hugged him. “Thank you, I feel guilty. I started having bad thoughts and you were buying me a ring.” “And a bracelet. He handed the bracelet box to her. “This is for you, too.” She sat back on the couch and rapidly opened it, reacting much the same as she had with the engagement ring. “Oh, Jamie Lee, it’s beautiful.” She slipped it on her right wrist and displayed it to her generous fiancé. “It’s gorgeous isn’t it?” “It is, but nothing is as gorgeous as you.” Jamie Lee felt guilty for deceiving her, but it was necessary. He knew she’d never understand his need for other women, when she was so perfect herself. He didn’t even understand it She reached her hands around his rear end and pulled him between her legs until his legs bumped the cushion. She brought her elegant long fingered hands around to the front of his slacks and lowered the zipper. “Now, I’m going to give you a reward.”

"There are no studies of a sacred grand style in the English Renaissance," writes Debora Shuger, "because even according to its practitioners it was not supposed to exist." Yet the grand style forms the unacknowledged center of traditional rhetorical theory. In this first history of the grand style, Professor Shuger explores the growth of a Christian aesthetic out of the Classical grand style, showing its development from Isocrates to the sacred rhetorics of the Renaissance. These rhetorics advocate a Christian grand style neither pedantically mimetic nor playfully sophistic, whose models include Tacitus and the Bible, as well as Cicero, and whose theoretical sources embrace not only Cicero and Quintilian, but Hermogenes and Longinus. This style dominates the best and most scholarly rhetorics of the period--texts written in Latin and, while ignored by most recent scholars, extensively used in England throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. These works are the first attempts since Augustine's pioneering revision of Ciceronian rhetoric to reground ancient rhetorical theory on Christian epistemology and theology. According to Professor Shuger, the Christian grand style is passionate, vivid, dramatic, metaphoric--yet this emotional energy and sensuousness is shaped and legitimated by Renaissance religious culture. Thus sacred rhetoric cannot be considered apart from contemporary theories of cognition, emotion, selfhood, and signification. It mediates between word and world. Moreover, these texts suggest the almost forgotten centrality of neo-Latin scholarship during these years and provide a crucial theoretical context for England's great flowering of devotional prose and poetry. Originally published in 1988. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
