Overview

Mario Santini, a naïve young, 18 year old American sailor, from a very staunch Catholic Italian family falls in love with a beautiful, black, 19 year old prostitute, all of which is taking place in the white bible belt, pre-Martin Luther King south ( Norfolk, Virginia ) circa early 1950's.

This stunning lady of the night ( named Bahama Mamma by the Fleet ) tries everything to discourage the relentless and annoying pursuit of a love sick sailor but to no avail, he is not going to go away.

She finally gives in and they start dating to find that each has something to give that the other one doesn't have Mario love and warmth from a large Italian family and she, ghetto raised Christina Watson, survival on the streets.

This racially charged togetherness survives leading to a fun, and heart warming romantic comedy....LOVE CONQUERS ALL.

Green Streak 396 is a taxicab owned and driven by street wise African American 40 year old Moses Cotton, Christina Watson's faithful companion, chauffer and confidant who makes all her appointments and drives her to places of business.

Moses Cotton is hopelessly in love with this beautiful 19 year old lady but alas, his love is not returned but he remains faithful to her in spite of all her sorted endeavors.

Janet Evanovich’s #1 New York Times bestselling sensation Stephanie Plum returns in her twenty-forth thriller as mutilated corpses litter the streets of New Jersey... 

Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won’t let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie’s main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a stun gun—whether that’s for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen.

Events take a dark turn when headless bodies start appearing across town. At first, it’s just corpses from a funeral home and the morgue that have had the heads removed. But when a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church Stephanie knows that she’s the only one with a prayer of catching this killer.

If all that’s not enough, Diesel’s back in town. The 6-foot-tall, blonde-haired hunk is a man who accepts no limits—that includes locked doors, closed windows and underwear. Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli isn’t pleased at this unexpected arrival nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.

As usual Jersey’s favorite bounty hunter is stuck in the middle with more questions than answers. What’s the deal with Grandma Mazur’s latest online paramour? Who is behind the startling epidemic of mutilated corpses? And is the enigmatic Diesel’s sudden appearance a coincidence or the cause of recent deadly events?  
I’m Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be... and I’m running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won’t be hounded at every step—an impossible thing to ask when I’m on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia. So, I buy a yacht and hide out in the most obscure, remote, and unexpected place I can think of: Ketchikan, Alaska. 


Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that’s six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can't resist. I mean, who could? He's a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch. 


He's utterly and deliciously sexy in every way—and oh, so innocent.

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.


All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She’s Helen of Troy—a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over. 


It turns out she’s not just beautiful—she’s famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world… 


And yet somehow she’s interested in me?
