SKULLY I turned on my brothers, my club – the Hell Hounds MC. Why? It’s simple. I was done and wanted out. There was no reason for me to stay in this town, but I had to make it right with the Chaos Kings MC. The only reason I did was because of her – Tanya. I just had to taste her, even if it was just once. She brings out a different man inside me, making me want that legit life. And once I taste her, I won’t ever want to let her go. TANYA My stomach flipped the second I saw Skully for the first time. But he was off limits. There was no way I could ever be with him. He was a Hell Hound and could never be trusted.
The man pushed all of my buttons. Part outlaw, part hero – the most confusing man on the planet. I’d just started to get over the most painful breakup of my life. I didn’t want lust, or love. I wanted nothing to do with any man. But…when it came to Skully, he was my weakness. Why should I deny myself? I wanted him, and I will have him.
This complete two-volumes-in-one book details the Voyage of the Jeannette and contains the ship and ice journals of George W. De Long, Lieutenant-commander U.
S.N. and Commander of the Polar Expedition of 1879-1881 (along with the original sketches and maps). This is a first-hand true account of the 1881 loss of USS Jeannette while exploring the Arctic ice. Jeannette, with a crew of 33, collapsed and sank under surging ice in the summer of 1881. Her crew, commanded by George W. DeLong, took to the ice dragging three small boats. When open water was found, the boats were used to sail to the Lena Delta of Siberia, 700 miles distant. DeLong commanded a boat of 14 total crew members, Executive Officer Charles W. Chipp's boat's crew was 8 total crew members, and Engineer Officer George W. Melville's boat had 11. Chipp's boat was lost at sea with all hands. Engineer Melville's boat landed in the southern delta, and DeLong's boat came ashore farther to the north on 17 September 1881.Melville quickly found aid, as did the two hardiest sailors of DeLong's crew soon after. The 12 remaining, including DeLong, perished from starvation or exposure (luckily his journal contained in this book survived to provide a detailed account). Thus of the original 33, 20 did not survive the expedition. This historic voyage is also retold in the recently published bestseller "In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette" by Hampton Sides.

Autobiografia Nuno Gomesa, nurka z RPA, rekordzisty świata w nurkowaniu głębinowym.
Jeden człowiek, dwa rekordy, dziesiątki tysięcy godzin spędzonych pod wodą. Nurkowanie, w którym liczy się perfekcyjny plan i maksymalna osiągalna dla człowieka głębokość. Nurkowanie, które jest sensem życia. Przez biografię Nuna Gomesa przewijają się najciekawsze postaci nurkowego światka – niedościgły Sheck Exley, wytrwały Jim Bowden, nieustraszony John Bennett – ale też znakomici polscy nurkowie, dla których udział w projektach Nuna był początkiem ich własnej kariery nurkowej.
Narracja autora zabiera czytelnika do zmagającego się z AIDS i przemocą RPA, do będącego niegdyś kwitnącym ośrodkiem nurkowym Dahabu i do Lizbony z czasów jego dzieciństwa, pozwalając zrozumieć drogę, która zaprowadziła Nuna Gomesa do ustanowienia dwóch światowych rekordów głębokości.
