No one told Master Asinine that disco is dead.
Master Asinine has a new scheme up his pants: take control of the Good Guys' space station by usurping its controlling software, the haunt control. His method of attack? The word-jumbling Scapegoat and the buffet-bingeing Multipurpose.
When Scapegoat and Multipurpose install Asinine's new Haunt-Control Control, it wreaks havoc: public-access lyrics to the tune of disco beats. Oh, and attempted murder. Now Good Guys Ace Spandex and Smithereens must find a way to shut it down.
To boot, the captive Schizophrenic escapes Good Guy lockup. All this while Legion needs to impress investors whose money will ensure that the Good Guys continue operation. Not easy when Schizophrenic takes him hostage.
How will the Good Guys deal with the enemy…when the enemy is their own home?
After watching her fairy tale go up in flames, Belle is finally starting over. With a baby on the way, a business to run, and a new love interest she just can't shake, things are finally looking up. That is, until she learns her independence might revive broken curses the world over. Could "happily ever after" really mean staying with her unfaithful husband? Or will Belle and her steadfast friends find another way?
Meanwhile, Dawn still longs for the life she had three centuries earlier—before her sleeping curse ended in two kids, an unfamiliar era, and a husband she barely knows. So when the childhood sweetheart she believed to be dead resurfaces, she must suddenly choose between the past she once wanted and the present she never knew she did.
As both women struggle between love and obligation—between what's right for the world and what's right for the heart—they fail to see a great danger brewing in the capital. One that could change everything forever.
With the wit of authors like Jennifer Weiner, the vision of ABC's Once Upon a Time, and the imagination of Gregory Maguire's Wicked, Damsels in Distress picks up where the original tales left off—and twists them every "witch" way.

“Guilty pleasures don’t come much tastier” than this sharp romantic comedy from the New York Times–bestselling author of The First Wives Club (People). Every Sunday, best friends Tracie and Jonny meet for brunch in Seattle and discuss their love lives. Tracie loves bad boys who seem too good to be true (and usually are)—while Jonny foolishly falls for girls who never like him “that way.” Then Tracie embarks on a makeover to turn him into a bad boy. She teaches him to scope out women at baggage claim; come back from a dinner date with a new girl’s phone number scrawled on his hand; and always carry a motorcycle helmet—even though he doesn’t ride a motorcycle. Jonny quickly becomes a successful heartbreaker . . . just as Tracie realizes that she might be head-over-heels in love with her best friend. But there are some major obstacles in her way—including Jonny’s wondering about why she never liked him for who he was without the leather—in this smart, laugh-out-loud tale of modern romance. “An old-fashioned tale of love and friendship . . . The dialogue is crisp and funny.” —Publishers Weekly
Bryan Callen struggles with which definition of masculinity to embrace. His example growing up was his giant of a father. A marine. A man built for war. A man hairy enough to walk up to a beehive naked and start eating honey without a problem. Bryan did not grow into his father. Bryan is a man but a man built for dance not war. This is his struggle.
Denny is a secretary who has just begun an affair with her boss, while also maintaining a friendship with his wife. Invited to the family's house for Thanksgiving dinner, she enters into a chain of events that will change everyone's lives in ways that none can imagine. Hilarious, scorching, and full of surprises, The Body of Jonah Boyd is a tribute to the power of home, the lure of success, and, above all, the sisterhood of secretaries.
"The book, with its acerbic tone and tight plot, is an unlikely vehicle for a paean to domesticity, yet it's this odd fit that makes The Body of Jonah Boyd such a pleasure."-New York Times Book Review
