Devarishi Narada explained Arjuna, who depressed after the great Kurukshetra war and in order to sharpen his enthusiasm, he began narrating the most intriguing and fascinating truth about his birth as gorgeously beautiful Apsara Viswachi. This incarnation was to make the King Yayati realize the Vedic concepts dealt in Rig Veda V11. 8.4 “The Quest for Immorality leads to doom unless Lust is conquered” as he was not satisfied with any beauty whatever, born of flesh, blood and bones though enjoyed over 1000 years. King Yayati bore a daughter Madhavi from Narada who was in love with him as Apsara Vishwachi. The beloved Madhavi was blessed to turn as a virgin after giving each birth. She mothered four great Sages Ashtaka, Pratardana, Shibi Chakravarti, and Vasumanas.

However, Humans are polluted and in order to become one with God, and have to purify to become like God. He also explained that similar to energy, the Human soul is invisible and has infinite potential and once activated with the inner purity that exists in the universal energy, becomes the key to joy and happiness!
Read now how Apsara Vishwachi made King Yayati realize that only quest for God has undecaying, infinite beauty alone and rescued by his collateral descendants..Author

Will she be defeated by Harry’s single-minded passion to father a son of his own? If she escapes, can she endure crossing the globe with a toddler? Ella will move readers to tears, and to fury; she lives. All Ms Bryn’s characters, the good, the bad, and the ugly, live. On Different Shores is a brilliant historical novel that takes the reader wherever Ella and Jem lead.

A Devil of a Time

by Gretchen Jeannette

“This is adventure at the finest level.” GoodbooksToday 
“One hell of a fulfilling read.” E-book Planet
“A devilishly good novel.” The Kindle Book Review     MATURE CONTENT:  This novel borders on American Gothic, with dark themes, a strong romantic element, and integral violence that some readers might find disturbing. Instances of coarse language and sexual situations are not gratuitous.                                                    Captain Niall McLane survives brutal captivity and a bloody revolution only to face a darker threat to his future with the woman he loves. When Niall becomes a suspect in a grotesque murder, his reputation as a merciless Indian fighter and scalp hunter turns public opinion against him. Worse, the real killer has only begun to rampage, his sights set on those close to Niall.
Now the hunt for evil is on. Niall’s only allies are Andrew Wade, a hopeless drunkard tormented by his own cowardice, and Andrew’s young wife, Clarice, whom Niall secretly adores. After another murder occurs, Niall manages to stay out of jail, but can he protect Clarice from the formidable creature prowling in their midst?

From the mysterious forests of Kentucky to a graceful Virginia plantation, from the fevered heat of battle to the hope and struggle for renewal, ‘A Devil of a Time’ weaves a tale of courage, betrayal and forbidden love, of three men grappling with the demons of their past, and the remarkable woman destined to change all their lives forever.

When his family returns to Germany just before the war, Jim arrives in the Third Reich as a young, sensitive theater student, both protected by and encumbered by his famous relation. Resisting an invitation to join the Nazis, he instead finds himself a member of an English-language theater troupe working in Occupied Europe. Unbeknownst to Jim, the leaders of the theater troupe, Nigel Burnside and his sister Margaret, are not the English fascists they appear, but members of the British Secret Service, using the theater troupe to recruit spies from among the Anglophile German officers who come to their productions.

Disillusioned with both sides of the war, Jim is trying to defect to neutral Ireland when he stumbles into one of Nigel and Margaret’s most closely held secrets–a Hungarian physicist they are smuggling out of Europe. While trying to extricate himself from this unwelcome knowledge, he both manages to draw the attention of the Gestapo and to convince the British Secret Service that he is a Nazi spy, a threat to their plans who must be eliminated.
