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.

    Poppy has one goal—not to use her goddess magic for two weeks. How hard can it be?  
    Poppy Faiten, one of the four goddesses of Fate, was stoked to leave town and pretend to be a human for two weeks. The lack of responsibility thrilled her—until Slade LaMont walked into the diner where she was working. Holy moly. Waves of lust and yearning swamped her. But how could that be? A goddess of Fate was supposed to help get other mates stay together, not have one herself. But here he was, so thank you, Fate. This dragon shifter was out of this world hot—and she was determined to land him. 
    Slade took one look at Poppy and fell into instant lust. It didn't matter his dragon was convinced she was the one for him. He didn't believe in mates. Besides, he didn't have time for one. He had a hotel to build—a hotel that might make Poppy walk away.

    A New York Times bestseller by the author of The Ninja: An American martial artist travels to Tokyo and becomes the target of an international conspiracy.   When his best friend dies under suspicious circumstances, martial arts expert Nicholas Linnear vows revenge. And while he may look American, Linnear’s childhood spent in the dojos of Japan taught him that vengeance must never be hurried.   He takes a job for the billionaire industrialist who ordered the murder, planning to befriend his target during a trip to Tokyo. But even for a modern-day ninja, there is such a thing as too close for comfort. In the bustling city, Linnear finds far more to worry about than the intricacies of Japanese business. He is being pursued by a miko: a female assassin, part ninja and part sorceress, whose beauty is matched only by her skill in combat. Drawn into a tangle of corporate intrigue, international espionage, and hedonistic sex, Linnear will have to put revenge on hold if he is to leave Japan alive.   From the #1 New York Times–bestselling author who currently writes the Jason Bourne novels, this is a “swiftly paced and fascinating” thriller that offers “an intricately designed puzzle” (Chicago Sun-Times).

    Three men just looking for some fun, strangers who meet in a bar. A simple one-night stand. Too bad they can't stop thinking about each other. 
    For fifteen years Luke Moore has lived by three rules: stay off his father's radar, never spend more than a single night with any man, and never fall in love again. But one night of explosive sex and two men he can't get out of his head have Luke breaking every one of his rules. Richard and Matthew push him past all his boundaries—both sexually and personally—and now he's no longer hiding from his senator father. He's taking him on. And he isn't just falling for one man. He's falling for two. If you're going to break the rules, might as well break them big. 
    But Luke's father has his reasons for hating how his son lives, and he'll do whatever he can and use all his power to keep Luke away from Richard and Matthew. 
    Can this threesome find a way to make their unconventional relationship last with the world around them trying to pull them apart? And will Luke be able to keep breaking his rules for Richard and Matthew, or will he head back to his old way of life just when his new lovers want to pull him closer? 
    This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and an all-male menage relationship.
