Everyone loves Jack Holland, but Emmaline Neal needs him. Her ex-fiancé is getting married in Malibu and, obviously, she can’t go to the wedding alone. In Manningsport, New York, tall, blond and gorgeous Jack Holland is practically a cottage industry when it comes to rescuing desperate women. He knows the drill, Em figures, so he won’t get the wrong idea.
What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he’s been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He’s always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem.
So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack’s pushing for more, and if she lets down her guard, either she’ll get her heart crushed again, or discover that Jack’s worth more than just dreaming about.

Ordered to relieve an alcoholic skipper, Dan finds he has inherited a damaged ship, an untrustworthy crew, and an ambiguous mission. He is to take the USS Oliver C. Gaddis, soon to become the PNS Tughril, on her final voyage to be donated to Pakistan. But in Kirachi, Dan gets new orders: take Gaddis still further east, and operate against modern pirates preying on commercial shipping in the remote, dangerous South China Sea.
Pursuing an elusive and shadowy foe into an exotic, isolated world of hazardous reefs and tropical islands, Dan gradually discerns a larger purpose behind his supposed objective. Who are these “pirates?” What expansionist cunning supports them?

Jen Lancaster was living the sweet life-until real life kicked her to the curb.
She had the perfect man, the perfect job-hell, she had the perfect life-and there was no reason to think it wouldn’t last. Or maybe there was, but Jen Lancaster was too busy being manicured, pedicured, highlighted, and generally adored to notice.
This is the smart-mouthed, soul-searching story of a woman trying to figure out what happens next when she’s gone from six figures to unemployment checks and she stops to reconsider some of the less-than-rosy attitudes and values she thought she’d never have to answer for when times were good.
Filled with caustic wit and unusual insight, it’s a rollicking read as speedy and unpredictable as the trajectory of a burst balloon. Buy this book today for $2.99.

Voyage has arrived
UPS delivered my Voyage on Tuesday, a full month ahead of the original date. I eagerly opened the box, turned it on, chose my language preference, connected the wi-fi and registered the device. Oops! The registration errored. Probably just a typo. I entered the information again. Internal error? Must be so excited I’m fat-fingering something. Tried again. Internal error again?
Two more tries and I’m convinced there is a problem I cannot fix. The first helpful care rep at Amazon realized that she couldn’t register the device and sent me on to Kindle technical support. Richard patiently worked with me to gather all the information necessary for him to register the device. Hallelujah! A bit of trouble that worked out fine.
My first impressions: Amazing clarity! The type is so crisp and easier on the eyes. The size and weight is right. The feel is comfortable.
The negatives: The power button is a push-style on the back in the upper right. My Voyage has gone to sleep twice when I have inadvertently pushed the button while gripping the device. (I don’t use a cover.) I’m disappointed with the push-button to page advance. It takes a rather strong touch to turn the page. Maybe my device is built backwards – the sensitive button has been put on the back in error.
Update: Chris commented that the settings for the page-turning buttons can be adjusted. That negative is now a positive. . .
Another negative: When I started the Voyage later in that first evening, the device was no longer registered. I was able to complete the process on the device, but it was an aggravation. Hope I have time to learn more about the Voyage this weekend.
Ben Bradlee, Long-Time Washington Post Executive Editor, Dies
Ben Bradlee, the executive editor of The Washington Post from 1968 – 1991, passed away October 21 at the age of 93.
Bradlee became widely known during the presidency of Richard Nixon, when he challenged the federal government over the right to publish the Pentagon Papers and oversaw the publication of Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s stories documenting the Watergate scandal.
As a reporter in the 1950s, Bradlee became close friends with then-senator John F. Kennedy, who had graduated from Harvard two years before Bradlee, and lived nearby. Bradlee’s wife at the time, Jean Saltonstall, was related to Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.
In 1960 Bradlee toured with both Kennedy and Richard Nixon in their presidential campaigns. He later wrote a book, Conversations with Kennedy ($1.99), recounting their relationship during those years. From parties at the White House to weekends at Palm Beach to JFK’s enduring influence on Bradlee’s own life, this is an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the man behind a myth, written by a giant of American journalism.
The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO.
