<h4>Gambled away by her brother, Freya is now bound to the music world's resident bad boy Liam Henderson as his live-in maid.</h4><br />Freya Coleman is a struggling artist who can hardly get by. With a past she would rather not revisit and a future that didn't extend past her next cup of coffee, something had to change. Freya just didn't know how much.<br /> <br />Liam Henderson lives in the spotlight. His wild nights and latest conquests make every woman want him, and every man wants to be him. The rockstar has a carefully constructed persona to keep everyone out. That is, until a drunken night gets out of hand and he finds himself with the winning hand in a poker game, and the prize is a feisty redhead. A prize who just might break down the walls he has been so desperately hiding behind.<br /> <br />Thrown together, these two are a disaster waiting to happen. A disaster the world is eager to watch and comment on until their fingers drop off. What starts off as a fake relationship to improve Liam’s image, blossoms into so much more, and Freya is swept up into the world of bright lights and illusions. Everyone has an opinion when the lights are shining on their beloved rock god Liam Henderson, and they are eagerly waiting to tear down anyone who is bathed in the famous glow.<br /><br />Can happily ever after exist when the whole world is watching?<br /><br /><b> "Beastly Lights is the perfect book. I LOVED the ending, though I hope this isn't the last we see of Freya and Liam. I think this is the best book I've ever read, I la la loved it." - <i>Sylvia R</i> </b><br /><br /><b> "THIS BOOK GETS REAL! My heart ached at times and raced at times. I cried, I laughed, I got angry, I got excited. It truly had ALL the feels. The mischief that Freya stirs up when she first arrives at Liam's penthouse is laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend this one!" - <i>Maya S.</i> </b>

<b>THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER<br /><br />The extraordinary memoir of a peasant boy raised in rural Maoist China who was plucked from his village to study ballet and went on to become one of the greatest dancers of his generation. </b><br /><br />From a desperately poor village in northeast China, at age eleven, Li Cunxin was chosen by Madame Mao's cultural delegates to be taken from his rural home and brought to Beijing, where he would study ballet. In 1979, the young dancer arrived in Texas as part of a cultural exchange, only to fall in love with America-and with an American woman. Two years later, through a series of events worthy of the most exciting cloak-and-dagger fiction, he defected to the United States, where he quickly became known as one of the greatest ballet dancers in the world. This is his story, told in his own inimitable voice.<br /><br /><b>THE BASIS FOR A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE</b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

What was Leonardo da Vinci's snack of choice while he painted Mona Lisa’s mysterious smile? Why did Georgia O'Keeffe find bones so appealing? Who called Diego Rivera "Frog-Face"? And what is it about artists that makes both their work and their lives so fascinating—to themselves, to their curious neighbors, and to all of us?
