    Wuthering Nights
    An Erotic Retelling of Wuthering Heights
    WUTHERING NIGHTSRomantics everywhere have been enthralled by Emily Bronte's classic novel of the tragic love between beautiful, spirited Catherine Earnshaw and dark, brooding Heathcliff. The restrained desire between these two star-crossed lovers has always smoldered on the page. And now it ignites into an uncontrollable blaze. In WUTHERING NIGHTS, writer I.J. Miller reimagines this timeless story to reveal the passion between Catherine and Heathcliff--in all its forbidden glory.Set against the stark, raw beauty of the English moors, Heathcliff, an abandoned orphan, recognizes his soulmate in wild, impulsive Catherine, the only woman who can tame his self-destructive nature. And Catherine cannot deny the all-consuming desire she feels for him, despite his low birth. Together they engage in a fiery affair--one that will possess them, enslave them, and change their destinies forever...

    The Bronte Sisters

    The Bronte Sisters
    Three Novels: Jane Eyre; Wuthering Heights; and...
      The most cherished novel from each of England's talented sisters, in one gorgeously packaged volume The Brontë family was a literary phenomenon unequalled before or since. Both Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights have won lofty places in the pantheon and stirred the romantic sensibilities of generations of readers. For the first time ever, Penguin Classics unites these two enduring favorites with the lesser known but no less powerful work by their youngest sister, Anne. Drawn from Anne's own experiences as a governess, Agnes Grey offers a compelling view of Victorian chauvinism and materialism. Its inclusion makes The Brontë Sisters a must-have volume for anyone fascinated by this singularly talented family.  

    Classics Illustrated #14: Wuthering Heights

    Classics Illustrated #14: Wuthering Heights
    Emily Bronte’s romantic masterpiece established the quintessentially dark, brooding antihero in the form of the character Heathcliffe when first published. Heavily influenced by the poet Lord Byron, the beautiful flow of her words is matched by Rick Geary’s art in this comics adaptation. Fan favorite and award-winning artist and writer Rick Geary’s work was seen in Papercutz’ CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED #1 “Great Expectations.”

    The Bronte Collection

    The Bronte Collection
    The works of the Brontë sisters—Charlotte, Emily, and Anne—caused an uproar during their day, and continue to captivate modern readers with their vivid characters, passionate romanticism, sinister atmosphere, and feminist strains. This audiobook collects four examples of the sisters at the height of their powers. Charlotte is represented with Villette, a penetrating psychological study of a young woman teaching at an all-girls school; and the immortal Jane Eyre, acclaimed for its blend of social critique and Gothicism. Emily's equally classic Wuthering Heights unforgettably recounts the all-encompassing, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine. Finally, younger sister Anne offers a prescient tale of an idealistic young woman trying to save her brutish husband from himself in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Readers Hannah Gordon, Carole Boyd, and David Rintoul dramatize these masterpieces in high British style.
