Money or love? Which would you choose? You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision. For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

This WWII biography recounts the heroic contributions of a female pilot who flew Spitfires, Hurricanes and Wellington Bombers for the RAF. A farmer’s daughter from Oxfordshire, Mary Ellis fell in love with flying at the age of eleven, when she rode in a biplane at a flying circus. Already a licensed pilot by the time the Second World War broke out, Mary joined the Air Transit Auxiliary in 1941. As a ferry pilot, she transported aircraft for the Royal Air Force, including more than four hundred Spitfires and seventy-six different kinds of aircraft. After the war, Mary accepted a secondment to the RAF as one of the first pilots to fly the new Gloster Meteor, Britain’s first fighter jet. By 1950, she became Europe's first female air commandant. In this authorized biography, Mary and biographer Melody Foreman vividly recount her action-packed career spanning almost a century of aviation. Mary says: I am passionate for anything fast and furious. I always have been since the age of three and I always knew I would fly. The day I stepped into a Spitfire was a complete joy and it was the most natural thing in the world for me.

Drug War is a landmark modern history: the first ever full account of the United Kingdom’s fight against the illegal importation of drugs. Packed with remarkable revelations and thrilling anecdotes, it tells for the first time the story of the high-level traffickers who drugged Britain, and the secretive organisation that tried to stop them: the Investigation Division of HM Customs and Excise. The ID’s elite officers waged a fifty-year battle to stem the tide of cannabis, cocaine and heroin arriving by land, air and sea, and to track, arrest and prosecute the smuggling gangs, both organised and chaotic, who turned an amateur pastime into a multi-billion-pound trade. The result of more than 100 unique interviews, many with insiders who have never spoken publicly, it is a ground-breaking account of one of the most vital subjects of our times. It begins with the UN Single Convention of 1961, intended to enshrine a worldwide ban on narcotics. Yet within five years the UK was on the cusp of a narco-boom, driven by immigrants from its former colonies and by the eruption of the youth counterculture. The insidious effect was to corrupt key areas of British life, including airport baggage and freight handlers at Heathrow Airport, dockers at the major ports and even the Drug Squad at New Scotland Yard. Drug War chronicles: the first major ‘barons’, including the brilliant laser scientist Dr Gurdev Singh Sangha; the rise of hippie traffickers such as the legendary Howard Marks, and the violent gangland syndicates that ultimately brushed them aside; the ongoing rivalry between police and Customs and how this often blighted the law enforcement response; the emergence of London’s first heroin godfather, Gigi Bekir, and how the Turkish state was complicit in flooding the country with smack; the heavyweight ‘untouchables’ who eventually streamlined the drug business, and the extraordinary covert methods employed against them; and how secret liaison with British and American spy agencies led to the biggest cocaine seizures ever, the motherships of the Colombian cartels. Concluding with the series of mishaps and scandals that ushered in the Serious Organised Crime Agency, Drug War is a ground-breaking account packed with unique revelations, personal testimony and fresh analysis.

Former air force pilot Max Taylor has gained something of a reputation with the high-society ladies he shuttles around on his charter airline service. And the rumor mill has been out of control since he's become a chapter in the tell-all book written by a late congressman's widow! Looking to lie low while the courts restore his good name, Max has decided to hide out with his grandfather in the tiny town of Trouble, Pennsylvania. Sabrina Cavanaugh isn't the sultry, mysterious heiress she's pretending to be. In fact, she's a junior book editor who happens to be on a mission — to nail Max Taylor for the womanizing creep he is. Having worked hand in hand with the loose-lipped widow in writing her memoirs, there's no way Sabrina's going to let some spoiled (and hot) flyboy kill her career-making project with a lawsuit. It looks as if the love of a lifetime is on the horizon.

Fly with Captain Tom Cooper on this most incredible roller coaster ride from a rural, Mayberry-ish community in the foot hills of North Carolina to the apex of the scheduled airline world. A superb story teller, Captain Cooper takes you on a breathtaking trip with intermediate stops in the jungles of South America, revolutions in the tropics, the “sometimes” exciting exploits of a scheduled airline pilot and finally lands you on the top floor, mahogany row, of the volatile airline community. Whether you are a professional or private pilot or just an “arm chair” adventurer, with his simple but vivid writing style, he escorts you through his 60 years of aviation experiences with page after page of a literary reality show that can only be narrated by someone who has actually lived it. Captain Cooper shares his experiences, the good times and the bad, the wins and the losses, with clarity and with a simple credo that to be a success one must, to paraphrase Teddy Roosevelt, be “in the arena” and experience failures along with any successes that might come your way without fear of criticism or admonition. And…….never, ever, let ‘em see you sweat!

Previous experience with women's lingerie required. Billionaire CEO Cole Carrington knew the only way to check the seemingly downward spiral of his lingerie store was to go undercover. If it was being mismanaged he’d be able to get to the bottom of it. What he wasn’t expecting was to run into Jillian Winters, the gorgeous woman he’d evicted months ago from the same location. When Jillian Winters gets evicted from the building she rented, she’s forced to shut down her five-star lingerie store. Unable to have the proper funds to relocate into an equally swank location in Downtown Denver, Jillian is certain her managing skills aren’t what she believed them to be. Still sulking weeks later, Jillian’s pesky sister helps her get a new job—same location, new lingerie store—owned by the handsome stranger who evicted her. Unforeseen circumstances force Jillian into the management position where she realizes she’ll have the chance to learn from her previous mistakes. But she’s taken aback when a competitor offers Jillian part of her dream again—half owner of a lingerie store. Jillian must decide where she wants to be: working at her hot boss’s upscale lingerie store and helping him succeed. Or working toward her ultimate goal of being an owner again—even if that means taking a step down from the five-star norm she’s used to. Especially when she realizes that dealing with Cole Carrington on a day to day basis isn’t as difficult as she first thought it might be.

The Business of American Theatre is a research guide to the history of producing theatre in the United States. Covering a wide range of subjects, the book explores how traditions of investment, marketing, labor union contracts, advertising, leasing arrangements, ticket scalping, zoning ordinances, royalties, and numerous other financial transactions have influenced the art of theatre for the past three centuries. Yet the book is not a dry reiteration of hits and flops, bankruptcies and bamboozles. Nor does it cover "everything about it that's appealing, everything the traffic will allow" (as Irving Berlin did in the song "There's No Business Like Show Business"). It is instead a highly readable resource for anyone interested in how money, and how much money, is critical to the art and artists of theatre. Many of those artists make appearances in the book: Richard Rodgers and his keen eye for investment, Jacob Shubert and his construction of "the bridge of thighs" for his showgirls at the Winter Garden, the significance of the Disney Souvenir Shop near the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway, and the difference between a Broadway show losing millions of dollars or making billions in one night. Consider this book a go-to resource for readers, students, and scholars of the theatre business.
