Madam Belle

by Maryjean Wall, Madam Belle Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Madam Belle books, Belle Brezing made a major career move when she stepped off the streets of Lexington, Kentucky, and into Jennie Hill's bawdy house -- an upscale brothel run out of a former residence of Mary Todd Lincoln. At nineteen, Brezing was already infamous as a youth steeped in death, sex, drugs, and scandal. But it was in Miss Hill's "respectable" establishment that she began to acquire the skills, manners, and business contacts that allowed her to ascend to power and influence as an internationally known madam. In this revealing book, Maryjean Wall offers a tantalizing true story of vice and power in the Gilded Age South, as told through the life and times of the notorious Miss Belle. After years on the streets and working for Hill, Belle Brezing borrowed enough money to set up her own establishment -- her wealth and fame growing alongside the booming popularity of horse racing. Soon, her houses were known internationally, and powerful patrons from the industrial cities of the Northeast courted her in the lavish parlors of her gilt-and-mirror mansion. Secrecy was a moral code in the sequestered demimonde of prostitution in Victorian America, so little has been written about the Southern madam credited with inspiring the character Belle Watling in Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind. Following Brezing from her birth amid the ruins of the Civil War to the height of her scarlet fame and beyond, Wall uses her story to explore a wider world of sex, business, politics, and power. The result is a scintillating tale that is as enthralling as any fiction.

Belle Brezing

by MC Price, Belle Brezing Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Belle Brezing books, Somewhere between a paperboy's first cup of chicory coffee and the memories of the Madam who inspired Belle Watling of Gone With the Wind fame, there lies a story of sex, secrets and spiritual redemption. Interweaving portals to the past with the magic of a Spirit Guide called back to his lover's deathbed, Belle Brezing is a haunting love story about a loyal paperboy on a high-stakes mission: To guide his former lover to remember the secret that forged her rise to fame but closed her heart to love. Belle Brezing, the novel, takes a look at the woman who died in virtual isolation in 1940, decades after her business was closed by the Army in 1917. Brezing was a nationally known southern Madam whose obituary appeared on the front of the NY Times as well as Time Magazine. (1863-1940) Belle Brezing was a charismatic woman who brought herself out of poverty and an emotionally and physically painful early childhood. Shedding light on the connections of a wounded past and a life lived in quiet desperation, the award-winning novel Belle Brezing exposes the scandals and secrets of this dynamic woman whose life parallels timely issues in the arena of prostitution and sex trafficking.

Dramatische Erzählunen aus einer beispiellos harten Zeit, in der der Colt regierte. Diese Buch enthält folgende Western: Franc Helgath: Die Horde des Bösen Heinz Squarra: Die Suche nach der Star of St. Louis John F. Beck: Nimm den Stern, Doc! Larry Lash: Reite unter dem Regenbogen Alfred Bekker: Ritt zum Galgen Der Großrancher Ralph Vanders lebt gut von seiner Weide, die fast rings um Metaow liegt. Mit jedem Tag wächst sein Reichtum, den ihm die Treibherden, die in Metaow verladen werden, einbringen. Gleichzeitig steigert sich auch seine Macht. Er ist es, der den Ton angibt. Er bestimmt die Verladearbeiten, bekommt seinen Sold aus den Saloons, Spielsälen und Tanzhallen, von all den Leuten, die mit ihm in Metaow von den Treibherden leben. Nur die Glocken-Ranch stemmt sich gegen ihn, aber sie ist zu schwach, ausgebrannt und von der eigenen Herde entblößt. Es scheint, als sollte auch sie von Vanders zur Seite gedrückt und in den Dreck getreten werden, denn Vanders hat in Skull einen rücksichtslosen, schnellen Mann gefunden, der Vanders hilft, sich durchzusetzen. Skull aber spielt sein eigenes Spiel. Er hat einen starken Rückhalt in den Granger-Brüdern, von denen niemand weiß, wer sie eigentlich sind. Niemand? Yeah, einer weiß es! Er springt mit in den wirbelnden Reigen, beginnt ihn neu mit rauchenden Eisen und kämpft verbissen und klug gegen Verrat, Hass und Niedertracht, kämpft um das Land, für die Reiter unter dem Regenbogen.
