The entertaining true story of Tango opens with a grandmother purchasing baby rabbits as surprise gifts for her grandsons on Easter morning. Grammy, as the children call her, ends up with a rabbit herself which she calls Tango. This playful and amusing little rabbit becomes the light of her life and a wonderful friend and companion. Grammy and Tango play games and experience some unusual, sometimes frightening adventures together. Tango is mischievous, exceptionally bright, and always striving to be the center of attention. With Grammy's help he learns to do tricks, even magic stunts. He can open toy doors to retrieve toys, play cards and a toy piano, pull a little train, pull hidden scarves out of a magic hat, and more, all quite amazing for a rabbit! Tango loves people. With his sparkeling personality and entertaining trick skills, he amazes and charms children as well as adults with staged performances, always dressed in his top hat and bowtie. Though Tango loves to tease and is full of lively fun, his most endearing quality is a special empathy and understanding connection with Grammy, even battling her depression and illness to help save her life. Tango's delightful personality is apt to touch your heart in such a way that henceforth whenever you see a rabbit you will think of Tango's story. He will bring a smile to your face and warm your heart. Pet lovers everywhere, especially children, will relate to and enjoy Tango's wonderful true story.

Kapka Kassabova first set foot in a tango studio ten years ago and, from that moment, she was hooked. With the beat of tango driving her on and the music filling her head, she's danced across the world, from Auckland to Edinburgh, from Berlin to Buenos Aires, putting in hours of practice for fleeting moments of dance-floor ecstasy, suffering blisters and heart-break along the way. Here, in sparkling, spring-heeled prose, Kapka takes us inside the esoteric world of tango to tell the story of the dance, from its Afro roots to its sequined stars and back. Twelve Minutes of Love is a timeless tale of exile and longing, death and desire, love and belonging.

It's June in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and the only thing that's hotter than the pavement is Bartholomew Augustus Savages personal and professional life. August, a self-described beach bum who takes his retirement in installments, is neither a police officer nor a licensed private investigator; rather, he's a self-described "waste management consultant who professionally and discreetly takes out the waste for a fee. But to his friends on the beach, and his land lady, Mrs. Agnes, all of whom are clueless about his true profession, hes just good ole August, a brother surfer, and good tenant. A combat hardened Ex-Navy Seal and Ex-French Foreign Legionnaire. Augusts business cards read B.A. Savage, and most business comes via the internet. Just as hes claiming an especially gratifying victory in a game of beach volleyball, August receives an encrypted email. Terminate a 107 year old nazi in Argentina expounding Naziism by way of an underground movement. With his commandeered sailboat the Nauti-Buoy he travels to the shores of Buenos Aires, land of the Tango. There August poses as a vagabond pirate and locates his target and starts the stalking game. August, has stumbled onto some dicey jobs before, but nothing like the one hes just uncovered, with a bizarre twist. Thrust back into his old roots of death-dealing, August proudly stamps his seal of approval, B.A. Savage, where he shows a marked propensity to exact revenge for the ill-treatment and death of one of his new friends. Told in Augusts distinctive humorous voice, in turns sarcastic and sensitive, Savage Tango will appeal to fans of Jimmy Buffet, Carl Hiaasen, John D. MacDonald, Bob Morris, and Robert B. Parker (RIP).

Bruno Cadogan has flown from New York to Buenos Aires in search of the elusive and legendary Julio Martel, a tango singer whose voice has never been recorded yet is said to be so beautiful it is almost supernatural. Bruno is increasingly drawn to the mystery of Martel and his strange and evocative performances in a series of apparently arbitrary sites around the city. As Bruno tries to find Martel, he begins to untangle the story of the singer's life, and to believe that Martel's increasingly rare performances map a dark labyrinth of the city's past.
