Muriel Ostensen, handsome, clever, and a bitch, has no desire to get married. Broderick Gramiren, natural son of the king, has other ideas for her, and so does her family. In the wake of a shocking royal assassination, Broderick maneuvers secretly to become his father's official heir. But first, he just needs the right wife to help press his case. The Duke of Severn's daughter would be the perfect woman to help Broderick in his quest, especially with his father, the king, pressuring him to marry. Muriel, however, loves her independence, and she feels her family is selling her short by trying to marry her to a bastard, even if he is the king's bastard. If she has one scheme to avoid marrying Broderick, she has a dozen, but Broderick might just have a dozen and one. Book 2 in the political fantasy series Of Duty and Silver, For Her Own Good picks up where The Queen's Tower left off, but it can also be read as a standalone romance.

A recording of a lost woman’s voice sends Holland Taylor on a wild hunt The woman’s words send an icy chill through Minneapolis private investigator Holland Taylor: “If you are listening to this now,” she says, “it is because I am dead.” Speaking calmly, Alison Emerton explains that if she is missing, it is because Raymond Fleck killed her. Fleck, a convicted rapist, lost his job at a humane kennel after Alison accused him of sexual harassment and stalking. The threats began soon after, prompting Alison to buy a gun and record the tape. She vanished soon after, leaving behind her wallet, coat, and boots, on a night when twenty-three inches of snow fell on Minneapolis. Seven months later, her lawyer hires Taylor to find the missing woman. As Taylor digs into Alison’s past, he learns that Raymond Fleck was not the only person who wanted her dead.

In a shtetl in Imperial Russia, we meet the first of the Markoff women, beautiful, rebellious, red-haired Eve. As the new wife of David Markoff, Eve confronts the tyranny of her father-in-law’s household, where women are treated as servants and men are treated as boys. While the spirit of the revolution grows throughout Russia, Eve sows seeds off freedom beneath her father-in-law’s roof. And as the lives of the Markoffs are increasingly threatened by Cossack flames, the love between Eve and David is destined for betrayal. The son born to Eve grows up to become a revolutionary, forced to flee to America. There he bitterly rejects his past and paves the way for his daughter’s marriage into Russian aristocracy. By the time Eve escapes to America, the lies that divide the Markoff family have separated mother and son forever. But the past must be given its due—in a showdown that sets rage against love.

USA TODAY bestselling author Katherine Garbera proves that revenge is sweet, but family is sweeter… Gaming tycoon Kell Montrose should be excited about buying out the company of his family's bitterest rivals and giving its CEO, Emma Chandler, the ax. But there's something about the single mom that reveals a soft spot Kell never knew he had…and a passion he can't deny. Emma won't set a bad example for her young son and lose the family legacy. She certainly didn't get to the top by bowing to bullies like Kell. But the bigger question is: Why can't she fight the urge to bed him?

Rachel M. Brownstein considers Jane Austen as heroine, moralist, satirist, romantic, woman, and author, along with the changing notions of these categories over time and texts. She finds echoes of many of Austen's insights and techniques in contemporary Jane-o-mania, a commercially driven, erotically charged popular vogue that aims to preserve and liberate, correct and collaborate with old Jane.

Polly Peebles is the only child of eccentric parents. She is eight years old and very bright. the story is about the theft Polly's special necklace which was given to her by her great-great Uncle Cosmo. It was taken from her bedroom windowsill by a very strange bird. This she is told by a talking tree named Ebenezer, which grows outside her bedroom window. Adventures begin when Polly, who lives in New Zealand, goes to spend the summer holidays with her two cousins, who have been given a canoe for Christmas Polly, the two boys and their four friends meet at the river to try it out. When Polly's turn comes the canoe tips her out and when the others try to rescue her, they are all sucked under the water to a strange world. There they meet a strange ancient little man named Caradus, who tells them they are there to help Polly find the nineteen beads which make up the blue necklace. the beads are magic beads and have been taken to places all around the world. and so the journey begins They travel by unusual means; a weird elevator,a strange plane and train, a magic carpet, a rocket, flying horses, on the backs of whales and by balloons. Their search takes them to NewYork, Paris, Rome, Zimbabwe, the Great Wall of China, a cave under a Scottish castle, to Athens and a Greek Island, San Francisco. Moscow and London. Caradus appears during their search to give them clues. He can become invisible when the occasion presents itself. A spider called Spence also drops down when they least expect it, also to give clues. Caradus has a rather brainless evil cousin, who with his equally brainless friend keep turning up where-ever the children are, as they want the magic beads and the magic wand that came to the children's rescue in Paris, and they try a bit of kidnapping. After a journey around the world, experiencing some wonderful adventures, mystery and magic, all nineteen beads are found and the blue necklace is completed. Of course they all hope the magic from the beads will rub off onto them when they return to school. At the very least they have learnt a great deal about the world and the exciting places they have visited. However they don't know who will actually believe their story!

The adage that 'the rich are different from you and me' is crystallized in BAD DAD, a psychological crime novel that explores the dark side of wealth and privilege. Lester Fuller, as BAD DAD, is heir to a Wyoming natural gas fortune who hires his ranch foreman to murder his daughter-in-law. Mary Lou has provoked Fuller's scorn by luring son Danny away from an upper class existence, transforming him into a Southern redneck who sweats at a menial job to support her and their son. She is also having an affair, Fuller's private investigator reveals, producing photographic evidence that pushes BAD DAD over the edge. Fuller's privileged life is compromised, his mental state contaminated by his orchestration of Mary Lou's murder. Not only does he fear that his wife and son are suspicious, but the dead woman's mother, Rose, unleashes a nightmare scenario: she taunts Fuller by insinuating he's behind Mary Lou's disappearance, then confides her suspicions to a detective who is too intimidated by Fuller's wealth and influence to do anything about it. This reprieve, however, does not spare Fuller his struggle with the aftermath of this crime.

More victims than Bundy . . . In Houston, Texas, on a Sunday morning in spring, Coral Eugene Watts trapped two young women in their apartment. Only hours before, he’d killed another woman by drowning her in her bathtub. As Watts attempted to do the same to 20-year-old Lori Lister, her roommate made a daring escape, leading to Watts’s arrest. Watts confessed to thirteen murders, but with no direct evidence, he managed to plea bargain his sentence down to 60 years for burglary. Through the untiring efforts of investigators and the mother of one of his victims, Watts was finally convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison, where he remained the prime suspect in dozens of other slayings. Experts theorized that Watts may have slain more than Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Wayne Gacy . . . combined! Bestselling author Corey Mitchell takes us inside the twisted mind of “The Sunday Morning Slasher” and tells the chilling story of how he almost got away with murder. “Corey Mitchell empathized with crime victims in a unique and personal way. That empathy is evident in every true crime book he wrote.” —Suzy Spencer “Mitchell nailed the real story.” —City of Houston Mayor’s Office “Mitchell is the leading voice of true crime.” —Dennis McDougal
