<b>In Danielle Steel’s powerful new novel, four trauma doctors—the best and brightest in their field—confront exciting new challenges, both personally and professionally, when given an unusual opportunity.</b><br />  <br /> Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco’s busiest emergency room, SF General. With his ex-wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for rare visits with his children. A rising star at her teaching hospital, UCSF at Mission Bay, Stephanie Lawrence has two young sons, a frustrated stay-at-home husband, and not enough time for any of them. Harvard-educated Wendy Jones is a dedicated trauma doctor at Stanford, trapped in a dead-end relationship with a married cardiac surgeon. And Tom Wylie’s popularity with women rivals the superb medical skills he employs at his Oakland medical center, but he refuses to let anyone get too close, determined to remain unattached forever.<br />  <br /> These exceptional doctors are chosen for an honor and a unique project: to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass-casualty training program. As professionals, they will gain invaluable knowledge from the program. As ordinary men and women, they will find that the City of Light opens up incredible new possibilities, exhilarating, enticing, and frightening.<br />  <br /> When an unspeakable act of mass violence galvanizes them into action, their temporary life in Paris becomes a stark turning point: a time to face harder choices than they have ever made before—with consequences that will last a lifetime.

It's Jack, the man from the bus. It would be.<br /><br /> What follows for Laurie, Sarah and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak, missed opportunities, roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered. <i>One Day in December</i> is a joyous, heartwarming and immensely moving love story to escape into and a reminder that fate takes inexplicable turns along the route to happiness.

<b>There is no rule in the Man Code as unbreakable as this: no matter how beautiful, smart, clever, and witty she is, do not—under any circumstances—fall in love with your best friend’s woman.</b><br />Yeah. So there’s that. Look, it’s not like I didn’t know I screwed up by falling for her. <br />Also, for the record, unrequited love sucks big time.<br />And, I might have cut myself some slack by now, given everything that went down in the last few years, but Lulu just walked back into my life in a big way.<br /> <br />***<br /> <br />There are three things I've never been able to resist—my friends, my family, and chocolate.<br />Leo Hennessy? He was nowhere on that list. He's been a true friend—a friend who walked through hell and back with me.<br />Now, I'm stepping into my new future. I didn't expect it to include a riddle-filled, race-against-the-clock scavenger hunt across New York City.<br />With Leo.<br />Suddenly, I'm looking at this man with new eyes...<br />But my life spun out because of a man once before, and I can’t risk my fresh start, no matter what the temptation. And Leo is most definitely a temptation of the sexiest, sweetest, and most dangerous variety.<br /><b>More irresistibly delicious than chocolate...</b><br />

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER AND <b>THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT </b><br /><br />A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick<br /><br />“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, <i>Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine</i> is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” <b>—Reese Witherspoon</b><br /></b><br /><b>No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. </b><br /><br />Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. <br /><br /> But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.<br /><br />Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, <i>Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine</i> is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . <br />  <br /><b> The only way to survive is to open your heart. </b>

The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .<br /><br />1. Black coffee<br />2. Rude people<br />3. Nathaniel Bradley<br /><br />Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out. <br /><br />1. He’s an annoying know-it-all. <br />2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets. <br />3. He disapproves of everything I do.<br /><br />I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin. <br /><br />I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.<br /><br />I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it. <br /><br />

<h2>We vowed forever. What we got was two years.<br />But now I’m back to take back what was stolen from me.<br />She’s mine to have, and mine to hold.<br /><i>Again</i>.</h2><br />A filthy oil-rig roughneck like me had no business with a wife like her. She was the pretty little flower I never should have put my dirty hands on. But Leanna was my everything. My heart. My <i>obsession</i>. And one year ago, they told me another man took her away from me.<br /><br />…I just found out that was <i>bulls**t</i>. And now, there’s going to be hell to pay.<br /><br />Her family never thought I was good enough for her - the wrong side of the tracks, and too rough and savage for their sweet, innocence Leanna. They lied to keep me from her, and her from me. But now that I know the truth?<br /><br />Well, now I’m coming back for what’s <i>mine</i>.<br /><br />I’m twice the man I was before—harder, fiercer, and even more obsessed. For richer or for poorer? Well, she had me poor and loved every second of my rough hands pinning her to our marriage bed. I’ve made my fortune since, but I’m ready to throw it all away to get her back in my arms where she belongs.<br /><br />The people that took her from me think they can keep us apart.<br /><br />…They’re dead f-ing wrong.<br /><br />A year ago, I thought I lost her. Two days ago, I learned the truth. And tonight, I’m taking back my bride. <br /><br />And I’ll burn the whole world down to get her if I have to.<br /><br /><br /><i>Looking for a ridiculously over the top alpha hero completely obsessed with claiming his one and only? You’re in the right place!<br /><br />This one’s equal parts sweeter than sugar and hotter than sin, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to eat it right up ;).<br /><br />As with all my books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.</i>
