    Invited to a quiet Swiss château by the enigmatic Tatiana Beaujeu Lehmann, Anne begins to slowly write a novel in a language that is not hers, a language that makes meaning foreign and keeps her alert to the world and its fiery horizon. Will the strange intoxication that takes hold of her and her characters – sculptor Charles; his sister Kim, about to leave for the Arctic; Kim’s love, June, owner of a video store; and Laure Ravin, a lawyer obsessed with the Patriot Act – allow her to break through the darkness of the world
     
    Fences in Breathing, first published and critically lauded in French as La capture du sombre, is a disquieting, dexterous, and defiant missive, another triumph by one of North America’s foremost practitioners of innovative writing.

    Handsome, dashing and a close friend of the Prince of Wales, Lord ‘Buck’ Melburne has London’s Society ladies permanently swooning at his feet and so his nickname stuck with him.
     
    So, when Lord Melburne goes to his magnificent country seat at the urgent request of a young lady called ‘Clarinda Vernon’, a nearby neighbour of his, it turns out that she despises and hates him and so he is shocked and perplexed as this has never happened to him before.
     
    What could he possibly have done to offend her?
     
    He is even more shocked at Clarinda’s request – that he agrees to marry her, purely to indulge the last wish of her dying uncle. Once Sir Roderick Vernon has passed away Clarinda will, she assures him, release him from his promise.
     
    Despite himself Lord Melburne is really fascinated by this innocent yet feisty red-headed beauty and he is deeply concerned for her safety when he hears of sinister Satanic goings-on in the nearby caves orchestrated by someone who means Clarinda harm and even worse.
     
    When she finds herself prone on the sacrificial Altar amid a terrifyingly depraved Black Mass, it is for his Lordship to save her that she prays to God.
     
    And when at last her prayers are answered, she realises that her hatred has turned to love and that for her too, Buck Melburne really is irresistible!

    A “fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary” novel of vampiric horror from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Stillhouse Lake novels (P.N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories). After eight years of marriage, surgeon Mike Bowman and his police officer wife have snuck time into their busy schedules to celebrate their anniversary. But work is never far from Mike’s mind, which is why he finds himself in the morgue in the middle of night instead of in his wife’s arms . . .    Trying to come to terms with two young murder victims he wasn’t able to save, Mike unburdens himself to his friend and morgue attendant Adam Radburn. Good ol’ Adam, whose eyes seem bizarrely dark tonight and whose reflection in the cold storage drawers . . . doesn’t exist.    When Adam reveals his true self to Mike—and saves him from the clutches of death—Mike goes from a man trained to save lives to one who must take them to survive. And though Mike is now immune to mortal dangers, there are new threats to contend with and worse creatures who walk the Earth. One has been tracking Adam for centuries. To satisfy his bloodlust, he’s willing to destroy everyone Adam holds dear—including his new offspring.  “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [A] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles
