A cadet encounters hazing and racism at an elite military academy in this novel from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Prince of Tides. As Will McLean begins his studies at the Carolina Military Institute, the American South is in turmoil over desegregation. An outsider to the harsh authoritarianism of the military, Will survives the school’s notorious freshman hazing, and avoids attention from its fabled and menacing secret society, the Ten. But when he is asked to mentor the school’s first black student, Will is drawn into the intense racial politics—and the threat of violence—simmering beneath the surface. Based on Conroy’s own military school experience and featuring his lush prose and richly drawn characters, The Lords of Discipline is a powerful story of a young man’s stand for justice and the friendship, love, and courage he finds along the way.

A trio of powerful New York Times bestsellers—which all became the basis for acclaimed films—from the award-winning Southern novelist. The Great Santini: A son struggles to escape the domineering expectations of his volatile military father. “Robust and vivid . . . full of feeling” (Newsday). The Lords of Discipline: Will McLean begins his studies at the Carolina Military Institute during the Vietnam War era and must mentor the school’s first black student—while facing down the menace of a racist secret society. “A work of enormous power, passion, humor, and wisdom” (Jonathan Yardley, TheWashington Star). The Prince of Tides: When Tom Wingo learns that his twin sister has attempted suicide—again—he leaves the Low Country to visit her in New York and confront the family secret that haunts them both. “Conroy has achieved a penetrating vision of the Southern psyche” (Publishers Weekly). Deeply influenced by the author’s own experiences, with his Southern family and education at the Citadel in Charleston, these stunning novels represent the very best of Pat Conroy’s impressive literary career. The South Carolina–set sagas were made into blockbuster films—two of them earning multiple Academy Award nominations—and each is a rich, emotional journey into the inner lives of fascinating characters.

Three sizzling standalone romances in the Lords of Discipline series in one box set! BURNING FOR THE BARON Like a moth to the flame… The lives Maximillian, Baron of Sutton, has saved are never enough to atone for those he destroyed. Now a retired spy, he can’t avoid the woman he hurt the most. She not only works for him, she haunts his dreams and sets his body on fire. She’s the woman he desires most… …and she has no idea he killed her husband. Colleen Bonner’s scandalous new job as manager for a bawdyhouse provides security and independence. But she won’t allow the searing heat she and Max create to melt her heart. Because Colleen has a secret of her own… …a secret that could send her life up in flames. When an enemy from Max’s past resurfaces and takes aim at Colleen, Max is torn between duty … and revenge. Now that he knows what it truly means to love, he’ll do anything to protect Colleen, even if it means watching their future together go up in smoke. +++Burning for the Baron contains fire play and steamy sex scenes. Consider yourself warned!+++ MARKED BY THE MARQUESS In this battle of wills, matrimony might be the deadliest game of all… Gentleman spy, Sinclair, Marquess of Dunkeld, must discover who’s behind the recent unrest in Scotland. But when he’s caught alone with an unmarried woman, a hasty marriage threatens his mission. Fortunately, his new wife Winnifred is everything Sinclair should want—amiable, practical, and biddable… Perhaps too biddable. It’s obvious his new wife is keeping a secret – a secret that keeps her from being completely his, and that is the one thing Sinclair cannot allow. The daughter of a man of science, Winnifred is practiced in the arts of logic, control … and deception. Her secret is darker than her new husband can imagine. And the consequences of him discovering it could be deadly. But as Sinclair draws her into a world of raging passions, the tempest gathering within might be the one thing she can’t hide. When an enemy threatens, Sin and Winnifred will need to trust each other, and themselves, if they want to survive the honeymoon. Can they lose their hearts without losing their lives? +++Marked by the Marquess contains steamy sex scenes of a primal nature. Don’t read it unless you like your romances HOT!+++ PLAYED BY THE EARL In the games men play, love is the riskiest roll of the dice… Ever since John, Earl of Summerset, retired as a spy, his life has suffered from nothing but boredom. He has no plots to uncover, no foes to vanquish…until his brother gambles away the source of the Summerset fortune. Determined to save his earldom, John devises a plot guaranteed to recover his property. All he needs is a proper young miss to assist him… Netta isn’t averse to a racket or two, not if the job is profitable. She can be any woman the provoking earl desires and she knows every trick in the book. But John is eager to prove that seduction is a game two can play. And the price of her employment might be more than she bargained for. But when Netta’s past threatens to destroy John’s future, they discover even the best-laid schemes can go awry. As an enemy creeps closer, John and Netta are in danger of losing much more than their hearts. In order to survive, they will need to find one last ace up their sleeves…. +++Played by the Earl contains steamy sex scenes with elements of BDSM. Don’t read it unless you like your romances HOT!!+++ ​

"In Pat Conroy's iconic 1980 novel The Lords of Discipline, protagonist Will McLean vows to write the history of his military college. Conroy's classmate John Warley, '67, has deftly achieved that in his modern history of The Citadel. Interwoven with the remembrances of alumni, faculty and college and community leaders, Warley's narrative account is an enlightening chronicle of change over time-a microcosm of our larger American experience-as told from the vantage point of one who wears the ring."--Jonathan Haupt, executive director, Pat Conroy Literary Center On March 20, 1843, twenty young men from South Carolina assembled on Marion Square in Charleston to begin the educational experiment called The Citadel. In 2018, over 2300 cadets from all over the world, of varied race and gender, gathered to celebrate 175 years of tradition and excellence. This book explores that journey.

In 1954, in Orlando, Florida, nine-year-old Pat Conroy discovered the game of basketball. Orlando was another new hometown for a military kid who had spent his life transferring from one home to another; he was yet again among strangers, still looking for his first Florida friends, but when the 'new kid' got his hands on the ball near the foul line of that unfamiliar court, the course of his life changed dramatically. From that moment until he was twenty-one, the future author defined himself through the game of basketball. In My Losing Season, Conroy takes the reader through his last year playing basketball, as point guard and captain of The Citadel Bulldogs, flashing back constantly to the drama of his coming of age, presenting all the conflict and love that have been at the core of his novels. He vividly re-creates his senior year at that now-famous military college in Charleston, South Carolina, but also tells the story of his heartbreaking childhood and of the wonderful series of events that conspired to rescue his spirit. With poignancy and humour Conroy reveals the inspirations behind his unforgettable characters, pinpoints the emotions that shaped his own character as a young boy, and ultimately recaptures his passage from athlete to writer.

Pat Conroy’s work as a novelist and a memoirist has indelibly shaped the image of the American South in the cultural imagination. His writing has rendered the physical landscape of the South Carolina lowcountry familiar to legions of readers, and it has staked out a more complex geography as well, one defined by domestic trauma, racial anxiety, religious uncertainty, and cultural ambivalence. In Understanding Pat Conroy, Catherine Seltzer engages in a sustained consideration of Conroy and his work. The study begins with a sketch of Conroy’s biography, a narrative that, while fascinating in its own right, is employed here to illuminate many of the motifs and characters that define his work and to locate him within southern literary tradition. The volume then moves on to explore each of Conroy’s major works, tracing the evolution of the themes within and among each of his novels, including The Great Santini, The Lords of Discipline, The Prince of Tides, Beach Music, and South of Broad, and his memoirs, among them The Water Is Wide and My Losing Season. Seltzer’s insightful close readings of Conroy’s work are supplemented by interviews and archival material, shedding new light on the often-complex dynamics between text and context in Conroy’s oeuvre. More broadly Understanding Pat Conroy also explores the ways that Conroy delights in troubling the boundaries that circumscribe the literary establishment. Seltzer links Conroy’s work to existing debates about the contemporary American canon, and, like Conroy’s work itself, Understanding Pat Conroy will be of interest to his readers, students of American literature, and new and veteran South watchers.

The #1 New York Times–bestselling author’s story about life at the Citadel in the 1960s, a profound exploration of what it means to be a man of honor. Lt. Col. Nugent Courvoisie, known to the cadets as “the Boo,” is an imposing and inspiring leader at the South Carolina military academy, the Citadel. A harsh disciplinarian but a compassionate mentor, he guides and inspires his young charges. Cadet Peter Cates is an anomaly. He is a gifted writer, a talented basketball player, and a good student, but his outward successes do little to impress his abusive father. The Boo takes Cates under his wing, but their bond is threatened when they’re forced to confront an act of violence on campus. Drawn from Pat Conroy’s own experiences as a student at the Citadel, The Boo is an unforgettable story about duty, loyalty, and standing up for what is right in the face of overwhelming circumstances.

During his first few days as a rookie New Jersey State Trooper, Justin Hopson witnessed an unlawful arrest and false report made by his training officer. When he refused to testify in support the illegal arrest, his life veered into a dangerous journey of hazing and harassment. He uncovered evidence of a secret society within the State Police known as the "Lords of Discipline," whose mission it was to keep fellow troopers in line. The Lords bullied and harassed colleagues for decades. Trooper Hopson blew the whistle on the Lords of Discipline, which sparked the largest internal investigation in State Police history. This book is a story of fear, courage, and integrity, showing how Justin Hopson persisted with his mission of exposing police corruption. Through many unexpected twists of fate, Hopson tells his story with a strong message that one committed individual can make a successful stand against social forces of fear and intimidation. ABC News, The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Star-Ledger, and other media outlets have interviewed Mr. Hopson about police corruption.

Darnell Johnson considers The Sanctuary as a prequel or a spin-off to his first book, The Purpose of Life, which basically has the same purpose-of-life mentality but in a different way, more like the guardian-angel-effect style; while The Purpose of Life is something Michael had to go through to understand it. Anthony in the Sanctuary does not know his purpose, and Chayo found out from God both their purpose, but Chayo could not tell him because the only way Anthony and Chayo could fulfill God’s purpose for them was by Chayo protecting them both from the evils and ills of one of California’s worst prisons.

Most film buffs know that Citizen Kane was based on the life of publisher William Randolph Hearst. But few are aware that key characters in films like Double Indemnity, Cool Hand Luke, Jaws, Rain Man, A Few Good Men and Zero Dark Thirty were inspired by actual persons. This survey of a clef characters covers a selection of fictionalized personalities, beginning with the Silent Era. The landmark lawsuit surrounding Rasputin and the Empress (1932) introduced disclaimers in film credits, assuring audiences that characters were not based on real people--even when they were. Entries cover screen incarnations of Wyatt Earp, Al Capone, Bing Crosby, Amelia Earhart, Buster Keaton, Howard Hughes, Janis Joplin and Richard Nixon, along with the inspirations behind perennial favorites like Charlie Chan and Indiana Jones.

Once one of the wealthiest cities in America, Charleston, South Carolina, established a society built on the racial hierarchies of slavery and segregation. By the 1970s, the legal structures behind these racial divisions had broken down and the wealth built upon them faded. Like many southern cities, Charleston had to construct a new public image. In this important book, Steve Estes chronicles the rise and fall of black political empowerment and examines the ways Charleston responded to the civil rights movement, embracing some changes and resisting others. Based on detailed archival research and more than fifty oral history interviews, Charleston in Black and White addresses the complex roles played not only by race but also by politics, labor relations, criminal justice, education, religion, tourism, economics, and the military in shaping a modern southern city. Despite the advances and opportunities that have come to the city since the 1960s, Charleston (like much of the South) has not fully reckoned with its troubled racial past, which still influences the present and will continue to shape the future.
