1951, Paris. San Francisco socialite Nancy Cooke meets Luis de Herrera, a dashing sports car driver from Argentina who is driving with the American team at Le Mans. It is love at first sight for the couple, but several obstacles keep them apart. After heartbreaking separations and months of uncertainty, they finally marry. Is it happily ever after? Not quite Nancy's divorce isn't recognized by the strict Catholic country of Argentina, and she struggles to be accepted as de Herrera's wife. But as time passes, Nancy becomes more familiar with the people of Argentina, especially of Juan Peron and his wife, Evita. She witnesses the country's fictitious agony over Evita's illness, and the choreographed, Hollywood-like production mourning her death. Later, Nancy even participates in the revolution to overthrow Peron.But while visiting the United States, Nancy and Luis are exposed to atomic radiation fallout, resulting in Luis's tragic death. Such a horrific event spurs Nancy's search for answers, and begins a new, lifelong spiritual quest that continues to this day.With amazing candor and heartbreaking emotion, Never Tango with a Stranger tells Nancy's bittersweet story of love, loss, and illumination, and provides a compelling portrait of the power and strength of the human spirit.

The first story, Ice Dragon Rising, explains how three young men sacrificed their own lives to create the Ice Dragon to save their world from a terrible War Lord. Broken for two thousand years, the next episode begins in 2012. The Reluctant Hero tells of Henry Barton-Jones, now ready but reluctant to take up the fight. Almost blinded by a rainstorm lashing deserted streets, he collides with Charlotte Masterson. She is wandering forlorn and desperate to free herself from Ricardo Bettencourt, a notorious and psychopathic but brilliant villain and drug baron. Henry connects with his old CIA partner, and together they fight Ricardos global blackmail scheme as it begins to go wrong with threatening and catastrophic consequences. In Tango Dragon and the Asteroid, Henry finds an innocent tango school in Toulouse is a cover for a private combat-training school. Ricardo still wants to kill Charlotte but then changes his mind. In a psychopathic mind game, Ricardo deviously binds Henry and Charlotte into another grotesque but daring blackmail scheme to bleed $380 billion from the worlds governments and walk away scot free.

Written decades before Eat, Pray, Love, this inspiring memoir details one woman’s incredible journey through India to bring Eastern spirituality to the Western world. Even before she arrived at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Transcendental Meditation, in Rishikesh, India, a city at the foothills of the Himalayas along the banks of the Ganges River, in 1962, Nancy Cooke de Herrera lived a lifetime of adventure. During the 1950s, she traveled the globe as a goodwill ambassador of the US State Department, giving lectures on American fashion, culture, and customs. But when her beloved husband, Luis, died, de Herrera sought a life of greater meaning. The Maharishi became her guru, mentor, and friend, and in return she served as his publicist, spreading his message of peace and love wherever she went. In this remarkable autobiography, with a foreword by Deepak Chopra, de Herrera recounts not only her international escapades but also her inner journey to spiritual enlightenment. Trained by the Maharishi, she returned home and taught meditation to troubled youth, HIV/AIDS patients, and celebrities such as Madonna, Sheryl Crow, and Greta Garbo. Her publicity efforts led to the explosion of interest in meditation, yoga, and Eastern spirituality in America. Rich in endearing anecdotes about life at the ashram with famous visitors, including the Beatles, Mia Farrow, and Mike Love, and pieces of timeless wisdom, All You Need Is Love reveals a life lived with compassion, open-mindedness, and the belief that one person can change the world.
