Summary

Jane Rule’s second novel follows a group of friends through New York and abroad as they explore the freedoms—and limitations—of sexuality in a time of stifling social conventionKatherine George—Kate to her intimates—is captain of her high school debating and swimming teams. But beneath her high-achieving exterior is a young woman on a quest for meaning and fulfilling relationships. Through her decades-long correspondence with Esther, the woman with whom she falls passionately in love, Kate shares the story of her journey into womanhood. As the sexually repressed fifties gives way to the liberated sixties, Kate’s odyssey takes her further and further from home. This Is Not for You also chronicles the travails of Kate’s intimate circle of friends as they, too, come to terms with their sexuality. Years pass before Kate writes her last letter, and can finally let go and move on. Reissued decades after it first appeared, this is a cathartic, unforgettable novel about the search for identity, intimacy, and love.

    I have no interest in starting family of my own. 
     
    Since returning to his pack, Giles’ health has deteriorated. He’s weak, can’t put on any weight, and his wolf form isn’t doing any better. So when the clinic refuses to refill his birth control in hopes of helping him heal, Giles fights back. No one in their right mind will be able to resist his heat, and without his own wolf to fend them off, Giles is as good as dead. 
     
    I can’t keep hiding from the truth. Something has to change. 
     
    Andrew hasn’t had a decent night’s sleep in months. Ever since he and his brothers rescued Giles and the other omegas from auction, he’s done whatever he can to deny his feelings for a wolf who’d rather be on the pill than start a family of his own. But when a call comes in regarding Giles’ poor health, Andrew rushes to his side. 
     
    What he finds is an omega too weak to stand with a heat so strong, it’s impossible for them to ignore. 
     
    Can this alpha and omega keep their paws to themselves long enough to see what’s in front of them? Or will Giles’ reluctance in starting a family push Andrew away, possibly for good?

    Fifteen years ago, Paul Merola left everything behind when he ran away with his mother to escape his abusive father. He lived life on the run for years, but never forgot his best friend, Danny.
