<p><strong>Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's <em>The Great American Read</em></strong></p><p><strong>Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred</strong></p><p>One of the most cherished stories of all time, <em>To Kill a Mockingbird</em> has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.</p>

<b>Love isn’t something I deserve.

I’ve burned so many bridges and broken far too many hearts.<br /><br />And yet, fate has a way of f*cking with a fellow.<br /><br />As CEO of my father’s billion-dollar publishing firm, I’m always looking for great writers, and a new one just showed up.<br /><br />My high-school fling.<br /><br />Not that I expected a warm reunion, but this delicious tart is having none of it.

<p>In this seductive, wistful masterpiece, Truman Capote created a woman whose name has entered the American idiom and whose style is a part of the literary landscape. Holly Golightly knows that nothing bad can ever happen to you at Tiffany's; her poignancy, wit, and naïveté continue to charm.<br /><br />This volume also includes three of Capote's best-known stories, “House of Flowers,” “A Diamond Guitar,” and “A Christmas Memory,” which the <i>Saturday Review</i> called “one of the most moving stories in our language.” It is a tale of two innocents—a small boy and the old woman who is his best friend—whose sweetness contains a hard, sharp kernel of truth.</p>

<b>T. H. White’s masterful retelling of the saga of King Arthur is a fantasy classic as legendary as Excalibur and Camelot, and a poignant story of adventure, romance and magic that has enchanted readers for generations.</b><br /> <i> </i><br /> Once upon a time, a young boy called “Wart” was tutored by a magician named Merlyn in preparation for a future he couldn’t possibly imagine. A future in which he would ally himself with the greatest knights, love a legendary queen and unite a country dedicated to chivalrous values. A future that would see him crowned and known for all time as Arthur, King of the Britons.<br />  <br /> During Arthur’s reign, the kingdom of Camelot was founded to cast enlightenment on the Dark Ages, while the knights of the Round Table embarked on many a noble quest. But Merlyn foresaw the treachery that awaited his liege: the forbidden love between Queen Guenever and Lancelot, the wicked plots of Arthur’s half-sister Morgause and the hatred she fostered in Mordred that would bring an end to the king’s dreams for Britain—and to the king himself.<br /><br /><b>“[<i>The Once and Future King</i>] mingles wisdom, wonderful, laugh-out-loud humor and deep sorrow—while telling one of the great tales of the Western world.”</b>—<b>Guy Gavriel Kay</b>

<div><b>"A graceful love story...and an authentic presentation of the 1860s that reads with the simplicity and visual gusto of a period movie."<i> -Readers' Favorite</i></b></div><div></div><br /><i> A Courtship of Convenience</i><br /><br />Sophie Appersett is quite willing to marry outside of her class to ensure the survival of her family. But the darkly handsome Mr. Edward Sharpe is no run-of-the-mill London merchant. He's grim and silent. A man of little emotion--or perhaps no emotion at all. After two months of courtship, she's ready to put an end to things.<br /><i><br />A Last Chance for Love</i><br /><br />But severing ties with her taciturn suitor isn't as straightforward as Sophie envisioned. Her parents are outraged. And then there's Charles Darwin, Prince Albert, and that dratted gaslight. What's a girl to do except invite Mr. Sharpe to Appersett House for Christmas and give him one last chance to win her? Only this time there'll be no false formality. This time they'll get to know each other for who they really are.

<h4>“<b>Hot, humorous, and dirty in the best possible way.</b> Amazingly well written. Highly recommend!!!”</b> —Anna Zaires, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author</h4><br />For ten long years, I stayed away to protect her.<br /><br />I thought I’d successfully subverted my wolf’s instincts where Bethany was concerned.<br /><br />But when I saw her on that dance floor, my inner beast took over. <br /><br />I told myself it would be just one dance. One dance and I’d let her go. <br /><br />I didn’t mean to bite her. <br /><br />Or f*ck her in the middle of a crowded dance club.<br /><br />Or kidnap her… again.<br /><br /><b>NOTE:</b> <i>"Just Like Animals</i> is a fast-paced dirty ride" (to quote a reviewer). The romance between the main couple is written to work as a standalone for readers new to the Werelock Evolution world. However, please note that this is book number 5 within the Werelock Evolution series, so it also continues elements of the overarching storyline for the world. 90k word, full-length novel. HEA with NO cheating.

<b>Christmas is the season of second chances. </b><br /> <br />I’m not the same guy I was growing up, but I have some apologies to make for being him. <br /> <br />My fifteen-year high school reunion reminds me of my biggest regret. <br /> <br />Walking away from the love of my life to chase my career. <br /> <br />By doing so, I fell in love with another woman, had a little boy, and life mended itself. <br /> <br />Until my wife passed away. <br /> <br />Love can suck it. I’m not interested anymore. <br /> <br />And yet the minute I see my childhood sweetheart at our reunion, the ice melts inside my chest. <br /> <br />But she hates my guts for leaving her without a goodbye when we were kids, and I can’t blame her. <br /> <br />An unexpected chain of events has her in an accident and without her memory for a short time. <br /> <br />As much as I hate myself for doing it, I tell her she watches my son and works for me. <br /> <br />I just need time to help her remember how much we loved each other. <br /> <br />It’s not right, but she’s always been mine. <br /> <br />I can’t keep up the lie forever, but before I reveal what I’ve done, maybe she’ll see the man I am today. <br /> <br />Different. Strong. Completely in love with her. <br /> <br />Or maybe she’ll recognize the truth. <br /> <br /><b>I haven’t changed at all.</b><br /><br /><i>Every Good Girl Deserves a Bad Boy. ~ Weston</i>
