Summary

The Pulitzer Prize–winning author’s “astonishing” debut novel, about a son’s struggle to find his own identity and integrity (The New York Times). Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Moonglow, and The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, is one of the most acclaimed talents in contemporary fiction. The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, published when Chabon was just twenty-five, is the beautifully crafted debut that propelled him into the literary stratosphere.   Art Bechstein may be too young to know what he wants to do with his life, but he knows what he doesn’t want: the life of his father, a man who laundered money for the mob. He spends the summer after graduation finding his own way, experimenting with a group of brilliant and seductive new friends: erudite Arthur Lecomte, who opens up new horizons for Art; mercurial Phlox, who confounds him at every turn; and Cleveland, a poetry-reciting biker who pulls him inevitably back into his father’s mobbed-up world.   A New York Times bestseller, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh was called “astonishing” by Alice McDermott, and heralded the arrival of one of our era’s great voices.  This ebook features a biography of the author.

    Gideon’s worst night ever starts out with a bang that will change his whole life.
    Gideon Wells has been cast out of his bear shifter clan for being a curse, and he’s inclined to believe they’re right. After all, everything from fertility rates to shifting abilities has gone down the tube since he was born. Then when his car catches fire and mutant scorpions—he thinks they’re mutants, anyway—almost get him, he’s more certain than ever that he’s bad news.
    Not that he’s just going to roll over and die.
    Ignoring a prophecy might not be wise, but coyote shifter Miller Hudson has seen and heard too many false prophecies to put any faith in the one proclaiming him to be the alpha and—along with a mystery bear mate—the saviour of the now defunct coyote den he grew up in. Besides, there’s no need for the den to be brought back together. None of them can shift, so what’s the point?
    The buzzards circling overhead on the far edge of his property lead him to the very last thing he ever expected to find.

    Falling in love had never been in the plan. 
     
    Somehow, among the horrors of war, wolf shifters, Payton Ward and Sven Gunnerson fall for each other and begin a not so secret romance.
 
     
    But all is not what it seems. After being abandoned by their country in the middle of the Congo, a gravely injured Pay and Gunny, along with their unit, must make the gruelling journey home, leaving a part of themselves behind. There’s a pack waiting for them in Smooth Rock Falls, and it sounds like paradise compared to where they’ve been living.
 
     
    Pay had thought the jungle trek and his recovery would be the hardest part of his life. He was wrong. Love is more difficult than he’d ever imagined. His beloved Gunny seems to be having second thoughts about their relationship. 
     
    
Gunny’s head is reeling. One moment he was carrying his injured lover through hell, the next, he was expected to settle down with a mate. But he’s scared; scared of having his heart broken.
 
     
    With one unit member missing, and the existence of their species about to be revealed, will Pay and Gunny be able to survive, let alone learn to love?

    My Omega's Baby 
    Blade Carr and Wyatt Smith are bodyguards from rival agencies who can’t stand each other. 
    Blade is a younger omega who thinks, Wyatt, a slightly older alpha, is arrogant and disrespectful. Wyatt believes Blade is nothing but a cocky punk. But when Wyatt receives a death threat, his boss decides the last place anyone will look for him is at Blade’s house. 
     
    Both men dread spending time together and are shocked when, despite their dislike of one another, they are suddenly physically attracted to each other. When they give into their lust one night, Blade just wants to pretend the perplexing night of passion never happened, but when the younger omega discovers he’s pregnant, the two men are forced to form a closer bond as they try to find a way to come together for the child. 
    Rockstar Baby 
    Riley West is an alpha whose music career is exploding. While he has millions of adoring fans, he also has a secret that makes it impossible to live his life how he’d like; he’s still reluctantly in the closet at the urging of his longtime manager. Three years of a grueling tour schedule have made him lonely and yearning for something more than just stolen one night stands. He wants to come out and take a chance that his fans will still support him. 
     
    Colin Robinson is a solar eclipse omega and also a bodyguard for Shield. He doesn’t really know anything about Riley when they first meet, but sparks fly and the two men enjoy a passionate night together. When Colin realizes Riley is in the closet, he makes it clear he’d never have been with him if he’d known. It’s a hard decision because he truly feels a connection to Riley and he wants more. 
    Manny's Surprise Baby 
    Pierce MacPherson is a solar eclipse omega with a chip on his shoulder. He was in a horrible relationship where his alpha sold him to other alphas for their pleasure, and now that he's free, he definitely has a thing against alphas. 
     
    Seth Rider works for Shield and he's an alpha with no desire to settle down with one woman. But when he discovers that a one night stand eight years ago produced a daughter he'd never heard of, he steps up to the challenge. 
    The problem is, Seth doesn't know the first thing about raising a kid. Pierce has some experience working with kids and when they meet, Pierce is guilted in to helping out for a week. It's only supposed to be one week. But when Seth starts having unusual sexual feelings toward Pierce, things get a little complicated. And when the two men give into their urges, and Pierce gets pregnant, things get even more muddled.
