Welcome back to the bathhouse, a place where your wildest fantasies can come true. Leave your hang-ups and inhibitions at the door because this is a place where anything goes. This sizzling boxed set includes three delicious tales set in California during the summer of 1955: FOG CITY TEMPTATION San Francisco - A sexy and mysterious soldier explores forbidden fantasies with an adventurous young man at the bathhouse. It starts with a fist full of rope and a pulse-pounding game of role play, as the alpha male soldier Ricky demands complete and total submission from Charles. After their first steamy encounter, Charles finds himself feeling more than just physical attraction to the handsome Army hunk. But in the conservative post-World War II era of the 1950s, the world outside the bathhouse would never accept the love between two gay men, much less an interracial romance. Is there a way for Charles to find happiness with his military man or is their secret relationship doomed? HOLLYWOOD HEARTBREAK Los Angeles - A brooding closeted movie star is swept away in a tense love affair at the bathhouse. On a muggy August evening, the actor has a fling with a man named Rex. Their feelings quickly flourish into an obsessive and all-consuming mutual yearning. The deeper they fall for each other, the higher the stakes soar. This leading man's secret gay life could destroy his film career if he were exposed. But the heart wants what it wants, and soon the two lovers find themselves pushing the boundaries to be together in this hot and heavy romance with a devastating grande finale. DEEP RELEASE Sacramento - Summer is scorching in the capital city of California, and a high school graduate named Thomas is aching for relief. While browsing his favorite beefcake magazines, he finds a hand-written invitation to receive the unique services of Doctor Doyle at the bathhouse. The curious but desperate young man decides to investigate. Beyond the closed doors of the bathhouse, he discovers a secret paradise filled with sexy, muscular men who express themselves freely and strut around in posing straps, Thomas's favorite type of underwear. When he comes face-to-face with the bearish British doctor, the adventure intensifies. Using magic fingers and an expert touch, Doctor Doyle unlocks deep desires from inside Thomas. After a new awakening, Thomas hungers for more. How far will he go to break the fever? If you enjoy the iconic Physique Pictorial and Adonis beefcake magazines, or the films of Hollywood legend Rock Hudson, you'll love this vintage gay pulp fiction inspired anthology.

Philip Burton explores Augustine's treatment of language in his Confessions - a major work of Western philosophy and literature, with continuing intellectual importance. One of Augustine's key concerns is the story of his own encounters with language: from his acquisition of language as a child, through his career as schoolboy orator then star student at Carthage, to professor of rhetoric at Carthage and Rome. Having worked his way up to the eminence of Court Orator to the Roman Emperor at Milan, Augustine rediscovered the catholic Christianity of his childhood - and decided that this was incompatible with his rhetorical profession. Over the next ten years, he gradually reinvents himself as a different sort of language professional: a Christian intellectual, commentating on Scripture and preaching to his flock.

"God is our home but many of us have strayed from our native land. The venerable authors of these Spiritual Classics are expert guides-- may we follow their directions home." --Archbishop Desmond Tutu Writing in the last years of the fourth century a.d., Saint Augustine of Hippo created what is at once the first true autobiography in Western literature and among the most sophisticated yet accessible theological arguments in the history of Christianity. With extraordinary candor and psychological acumen, Augustine recounts his passage from a life of sensuality, Manichaean superstition, and empty careerism to a genuine spiritual awakening, and he articulates views on marriage, morality, and faith that have shaped our discourse ever since. The Confessions allows us to appreciate both the startling modernity of Augustine's insights and the imperishable poetry of his voice. With a new Preface by MacArthur Fellow Patricia Hampl, author of Virgin Time and A Romantic Education. In the annals of spirituality, certain books stand out both for their historical importance and for their continued relevance. The Vintage Spiritual Classics series offers the greatest of these works in authoritative new editions, with specially commissioned essays by noted contemporary commentators. Filled with eloquence and fresh insight, encouragement and solace, Vintage Spiritual Classics are incomparable resources for all readers who seek a more substantive understanding of mankind's relation to the divine.

People are complex. Love a double-edged sword. And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time... For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about. To the outside world, he has it all. A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life. But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It's a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi. But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn't know what he's helping Julien to fight. He doesn't know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister's death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out. And thus the question: will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did? Only time will tell.
