When self-ambition becomes a horror noire, victims need vision....Young high-school grad Imtiyaaz is eager to leave her life in Indonesia behind. She’s always coveted employment abroad, and, at last, the perfect opportunity presents, as suggested by a colleague. Rich with opportunities in the "hospitality" field, Dubai, she’s told, is a journey worth taking. An offer with a chance for hire soon follows, and, finally, Imtiyaaz is free to part with her unhappy father. Imtiyaaz is over the moon, but it becomes clear, upon arrival, that her new station isn’t what she’d imagined. In fact, few bleaker fates undone could be fathomed under the scorching sun. Unwittingly indentured, Imtiyaaz finds herself the "property" of a ruthless trafficking ring of criminals and captives. Identification seized, she faces an impossible decision: perform unspeakable acts...or risk her life in attempting escape. Complicit authorities will be of no help, and, without a single friend in the Middle Eastern lands, Imtiyaaz is truly alone. Can one of many enslaved girls defy the odds and beat the heinous house? The stuff to snap one’s heartstrings....With an ever-growing body of work that demands real-world dissection, Eric Reese knows balance well in revealing inconvenient truths.Truthmarked by realistic harem truths offset by this young Muslim woman's hope engender haunting beauty.... 1.

She wanted to be a hip-hop star, but the streets got in the way. Have you ever laid down with a man and wasn’t sure if you’d ever get back up? Tossed the sheets with a bone-knocking fear that only a hard-core hustler could produce? Sexed him like your life depended on it because, in reality, it did? You still with me? Then let’s roll over to my house. Harlem. 145th Street. Grab a seat and brace yourself as I show you the kind of pain that street life and so-called success can bring. Nineteen-year-old Candy Raye Montana, an ex–drug runner for the Gabriano crime family and a former foster child, dreams of becoming a hip-hop superstar, if only someone would discover her talents. And someone does. Mega music producer and king thug of Harlem Junius "Hurricane" Jackson, CEO of the House of Homicide recording studio, cuts a deal and puts Candy on the stage. Suddenly she is a hot new artist on the notorious Homicide Hitz record label. Her career takes off and she blazes the charts, but it’s not long before Candy realizes that the man she thought was her knight is nothing more than a cold-blooded nightmare. Caught between the music and the madness, between the dollars and the deals, Candy belongs to Hurricane - body and soul - and must endure his sadistic bedroom desires while keeping his sexual secrets hidden from the world. But Candy has some strong desires of her own that simply cannot be denied, especially when she finds herself turned on by a brilliant investment baller who just happens to be Hurricane's right-hand man. Candy longs for her freedom, but if Hurricane gets wind of her betrayal the blowback will be lethal.

Die bekannte frz DJ und Produzentin mit einem furiosem Comeback nach vier Jahren Pause! Mit einem Remix von Innervisions-Mastermind DIXON!nnDie bekannte frz DJ und Produzentin mit einem furiosem Comeback nach vier Jahren Pause! Mit einem Remix von Innervisions-Mastermind DIXON! The Dawn signs the great return of Chloé! After 4 years of absence as a producer, this new 12 announces the release of her third album planned for the fall 2017. Dixon s powerful remix will delight all Panoramabar lovers and will make you dance all weekend long! Sounding the promise of long days ahead and late nights to follow with its opening salvos, Chloé s The Dawn heralds the return of the Paris-based DJ and producer, and a new dawn in her ever-evolving career. Indeed, The Dawn is her inaugural release on her own label Lumière Noire, which she recently set up as a separate entity after using the name for a collection of releases over the last few months, and of course for her infamous Rex Club night, which has since 2014 become a bit of a club house for Parisian electronic music fans. Operating Lumière Noire as a fully-fledged label will enable Chloé to release a new full-length album (of which The Dawn is the lead single) sometime in the next few months. Over the ten-plus minutes of The Dawn, a spoken-word track languishes over melodic washes in a dramatic progression that evokes a novel, or noir-ish cinema a method that the producer has taken a shine to since Take Care . This cultivation of the strange and the beautiful has become her calling card, putting her in a league with likeminded producers, who take the basic tenets of techno and inject them with their own singular poetic visions. A visual-arts analogue could be found in Noémie Goudal s photographs which grace the EP s cover as they will Chloé s upcoming releases. New Release Information This stirring aesthetic gives The Dawn a slightly cerebral dimension, which is taken to new depths by Dixon s stubbornly technoid remix. The Berlin-based whiz kid, who has over the last few years risen to the top of the international electronic music scene, inverts Chloé s light-drenched, full-bodied production into a tense, captivating chiaroscuro. The Dawn can also be explored via the CHLOÉ X IRCAM V2: The Dawn Interactive Mix installation, which embodies Chloé s music as an intimate interactive experience. It is one of the first offshoots of a constantly mutating collaboration between Chloé and the IRCAM Institution (www.ircam.fr/) that began in 2015. TRACKS: A. The Dawn (Original Mix) B. The Dawn (Dixon Remix)

The brilliant graphic novel behind the major new film starring Gemma Aterton (Quantum of Solace), Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Fabrice Luchini (In the House) and Mel Raido (Spooks) Gemma is the bored, pretty second wife of Charlie Bovery, the reluctant stepmother of his children and the bete-noire of his ex-wife. Gemma's sudden windfall and distaste for London take them across the Channel to Normandy, where the charms of French country living soon wear off. Is it a coincidence that Gemma Bovery has a name rather like Flaubert's notorious heroine? Is it by chance that, like Madame Bovary, Gemma is bored, adulterous, and a bad credit risk? Is she inevitably doomed? These questions consume Gemma's neighbour, the intellectual baker, Joubert. Denying voyeurism, but nevertheless noting every change in the fit of her jeans, every addition to Gemma's wardrobe, her love-bites and lovers, Joubert, with the help of the heroine's diaries, follows her path towards ruin. Adultery and its consequences. Disappointment and deception. The English in France. Fat and slim. Then and now.

This book explores the beautiful gardens, breathtaking scenery, and rich history of La Colle Noire and its connections with the Dior family. It traces the transformation of the elegant and luxurious La Colle Noire and follows the footsteps of Monsieur Dior on his excursions to favorite destinations such as Saint-Tropez and Cannes, revealing the couturier's many haunts and inspirations in Provence. Lavishly illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, archival documents, and watercolor renderings, this gorgeous volume pays homage to the abundant beauty of this magnificent region and chronicles its influence on the fabled house of Dior.
