Here are 23 new stories, written with characteristic affection and wit, which will greatly entertain Reg's loyal and eager readers.

‘A dazzling novel ... An unforgettable portrait of a man and a little-known land’ Sara Wheeler Song is just a boy when he sets out from Lishui village in China. Brimming with courage and ambition, he leaves behind his impoverished broken family, hoping he’ll make his fortune and return home. Chasing tales of sugarcane, rubber and gold, Song embarks upon a perilous voyage across the globe to the British colony of Guiana, but once there he discovers riches are not so easy to come by and he is forced into labouring as an indentured plantation worker. This is only the beginning of Song’s remarkable life, but as he finds himself between places and between peoples, and increasingly aware that the circumstances of birth carry more weight than accomplishments or good deeds, Song fears he may live as an outsider forever. This beautifully written and evocative story spans nearly half a century and half the globe, and though it is set in another century, Song’s story of emigration and the quest for an opportunity to improve his life is timeless.

Originally published in 1892, "the object of this Handbook is to supply readers and speakers with a lucid, but very brief account of such names as are used in allusions and references, whether by poets or prose writers; - to furnish those who consult it with the plot of popular dramas, the story of epic poems, and the outline of well-known tales. The number of dramatic plots sketched out is many hundreds. Another striking and interesting feature of the book is the revelation of the source from which dramatists and romancers have derived their stories, and the strange repetitions of historic incidents. It has been borne in mind throughout that it is not enough to state a fact. It must be stated attractively, and the character described must be drawn characteristically if the reader is to appreciate it, and feel an interest in what he reads." This work, an American reprint of The Reader's Handbook by E. Cobham Brewer, ..".while retaining all of the original material that can interest and aid the English-speaking student, gives also 'characters and sketches found in American novels, poetry and drama.'"

In a spellbinding tale that sweeps from a rugged Greek island to the scandal and intrigue of Regency England, bestselling author Katherine Kingsley gives us a man haunted by the past, a woman without a future--and a seduction that begins amid the howling winds of a storm-tossed sea. Grown to womanhood on the lush Greek island of Corfu, Callista Melbourne reluctantly sails to England to honor part of her father’s dying wish, but is also determined to defy his final request and escape the dreaded fate of an arranged marriage. Before she reaches the shores of England a fierce storm blows her from the deck of the ship and into the sea to face seemingly certain death. Yet here she was now, ensconced in a bedroom in Stanton Abbey, staring into the eyes of a mesmerizing stranger--without the slightest idea of where he’d come from…or of who she was. To Adam Carlyle, Fifth Marquess of Vale, she was the most captivating creature he had ever pulled from the sea. She called herself Calliope, but he soon uncovered her true identity. To save her from marrying a scheming fortune hunter, the widowed nobleman broke his own sacred vow never to risk his heart again. But how could he protect his new bride from the dangers of his own past…or himself from a scandalous passion that would tempt him to risk everything to answer the call of Callie’s love? From the Paperback edition.
