Vicki Hopkins examines the popularity behind The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera is a chilling tale interlaced with darkness, despair, love, and redemption. Originally penned by Gaston Leroux, the book is classic literature. Leroux weaves the tale of a deformed man living in isolation underneath the Paris Opera House, who desperately loves a beautiful girl named Christine DaaƩ.

The masked man has many names - Phantom of the Opera, Opera Ghost, Angel of Music, and Erik. He is a broken soul who yearns for beauty, but lives in hell. His desperate search for love takes him down a road of obsession and violence, and the cry of his despair echoes in our hearts. "All I wanted was to be loved for myself."

Lessons From "The Phantom of the Opera" steps behind the scenes and examines the symbolism hidden in the characters, emotions, sets, and events from Gaston Leroux's original work to Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece on stage. The book leads its readers on an emotional journey studying the motivations of the characters and the numerous symbols hidden throughout the story. As a result, lessons and life applications emerge from a timeless masterpiece for everyone to enjoy.

Released in May of 2009, it's now available for purchase worldwide on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Today we're celebrating the release of SEDUCING THE ENEMY'S DAUGHTER, a new Silhouette Desire from Jules Bennett!

So she did it. One night she sat down and started working on a summary of the story in her head. Her husband found her notes and asked what it was. She told him, "I'm going to write a book" then held her breath, waiting for him to laugh. Instead he looked at her, smiled, and said, "This is good. When can I read more?" Ahhh, her first fan.

Jules lives in Ohio where she runs a beauty salon by day and writes passionate, memorable romances . She says her home is usually in a state of chaos because she'd much rather create a new story than run the sweeper. Luckily her husband, daughters and beagle don't seem to mind that she's not domestic...that is until she forgets to feed them.



Brady Stone had just learned the new manager of the property he wanted was a woman...and quite desirable. Charming Samantha Donovan into giving away corporate secrets would be even sweeter considering she was the enemy's daughter.The business magnate had been planning his revenge for years. Now the only thing standing between Brady and victory was a beautiful, innocent pawn. His head told him to forget about any possible future with Samantha. But his heart knew that in destroying the Donovan empire he would be ruining his last chance at happiness.
