Summary

The Anarchist's Girlfriend walks the Bowery in early 1980's New York City and absorbs the atmosphere and emotions of those around her. Her encounters reflect her society—art, politics, business, religion. Inspired by Dostoyevsky's divine "Idiot," the AG is a clairvoyant Brooklyn Go-Go Girl who designs clothes of the future.  
The AG's roommates include her beloved Anarchist, a silkscreen artist, who wants to resolve Ireland's "troubles" with organic food, and nihilistic Sandy, a video vérité switchboard operator. The story also involves the Llama, who's in the religion business, and his employee, Wayne, a deaf mute journalist with a nose for truth. All are involved, as passion and hypocrisy erupt in a cloud of dust. And the AG must save her imperiled city. 
Delightfully retro and powerfully prescient, this novel of ideas satirizes New York's bohemian underground and the America of any time. Character truly becomes destiny and in the end, innocence is not lost but transcended.

    Pleasured by a Duke is the 7th book in USA Today Bestselling author, Carole Mortimer’s, #1 bestseller and highly acclaimed Regency Unlaced Series. Approx 40,000 word count. 
     
    Author’s Note: The stories in the Regency Unlaced, Knight Security, and Alpha Series, have stronger sexual content and language than my other books. 
     
    Sebastian Falkner, the Duke of Stowmont, having only recently rid himself of the guardianship of one ward, by marrying her off to the man she loves, has now learned he has been named as guardian to a seven year old boy. To makes matters worse, that young boy is to be accompanied to Sebastian’s London home by his stepsister, Miss Horatia Chelford. 
     
    From the moment Sebastian meets the plain but outspoken Tia he knows she is going to be a thorn in his side. But one he does not intend to suffer for any longer than he has to. 
     
    Except he very soon forgets he ever thought of her as being plain and unattractive, and sees only the fineness of her indigo eyes, the silkiness her ivory skin, and the sensuous allure of her highly responsive body. 
     
    Having suffered the recent and violent death of her beloved stepmother, Tia is determined she will not lose Martin, her young stepbrother, too. With that in mind, she is determined to establish a place for herself within the household of Martin’s new guardian, Sebastian Falkner, the Duke of Stowmont. 
     
    But she had not expected that gentleman to be quite so coldly haughty and aristocratic, or so devilishly handsome. Indeed, Sebastian Falkner causes a hitherto unknown warmth and desire within Tia which blazes out of her control at the least provocation. And Sebastian can be very provoking. 
     
    But the person who murdered Tia’s stepmother has followed her and Martin to London, putting both of them in danger. As a consequence, Sebastian is also put at risk, from a man who will stop at nothing to acquire what he believes was stolen from him. 
     
    Will Sebastian be able to keep Tia and Martin safe? 
     
    Or protect his heart, which he had believed was too cold and cynical to ever be given to any woman?

    Julie Brannagh's sexy, charming Love and Football series continues …  
    Star sports reporter Cameron Ondine has one firm rule: she does not date football players. Ever. She tangled with one years ago, and it did not end well. Been there, done that. 
    But when Cameron comes face-to-face with the very man who shattered her heart—on camera, no less—her world is upended for a second time by recklessly handsome Seattle Shark Zach Anderson. 
    Zach has never been able to forget the gorgeous blonde who stole his breath away when he was still just a rookie. They've managed to give each other a wide berth for years, but when their jobs suddenly bring them together again and again, he knows he has to face his past once and for all. 
    Because as they spend more time together, he becomes less focused on the action on the field and more concerned with catching Cameron.

    Dylan accepted the position as sheriff of Fallbrook looking for a fresh start and a chance to uncover the truth about Jessie's disappearance. He knew he'd have to face a few ghosts … he just never thought one would be Jessie, all grown up, stunning … and alive.

    Every novel in this collection is your passport to a romantic tour of the United States through time-honored favorites by America’s First Lady of romance fiction. Each of the fifty novels is set in a different state, researched by Janet and her husband, Bill. For the Daileys it was an odyssey of discovery. For you, it’s the journey of a lifetime. Your tour of desire begins with this story set in Maine.Gina’s face grew pale with shock. It couldn’t be Rhyder. Not after all these years. But there was no mistaking the tall, darkly tanned figure moving menacingly nearer. Like a child, a young, naïve Gina had once worshipped Rhyder Owens. But her desire for him, even then, had been like a woman’s. Gina was older now, an intelligent, sophisticated lawyer. Yet she felt the waves of panic rising inside her. “Why did you have to come back to Maine?” she protested in angry despair. “I don’t want you here. All I want to do is forget.” Rhyder’s narrowed blue eyes raked her body chillingly. “You couldn’t possibly have forgotten that you are my wife!”
