<b>“Riveting, heart-wrenching, and full of Old Hollywood glamour, <i>The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo</i> is one of the most captivating reads of 2017.” –<i>Buzzfeed</i></b><BR> <BR><b>“The epic adventures Evelyn creates over the course of a lifetime will leave every reader mesmerized. This wildly addictive journey of a reclusive Hollywood starlet and her tumultuous Tinseltown journey comes with unexpected twists and the most satisfying of drama.” —<i>PopSugar</i></b><BR> <BR>In this entrancing novel “that speaks to the Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor in us all” (<i>Kirkus Reviews</i>), a legendary film actress reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.<BR><BR>Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?<BR> <BR>Monique is not exactly on top of the world.

Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.<BR> <BR>Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love.

<b>"A film-ready rom-com about finding love when you least expect it."--<i>Elle</i><br /><br />"My favorite romantic book of recent memory." --Emma Straub<br /><br />"The delightful, sexy, queer rom-com of the summer . . . [with] all the makings of a Nora Ephron classic." --<i>Vogue</i><br /><br />*One of NPR's Best Books of 2018*<br />*One of Washington Post's 50 Notable Works of Fiction in 2018*</b><br /><br />From the acclaimed author of <i>The Assistants</i> comes another gutsy book about the importance of women taking the reins--this time, when it comes to love, sex, and self-acceptance.<br /><i></i><br /><i>When it comes to Cassidy, Katie can't think straight.</i><br /><br />Katie Daniels, a twenty-eight-year-old Kentucky transplant with a strong set of traditional values, has just been dumped by her fiancé when she finds herself seated across a negotiating table from native New Yorker Cassidy Price, a sexy, self-assured woman wearing a man's suit. At first neither of them knows what to make of the other, but soon their undeniable connection will bring into question everything each of them thought they knew about sex and love.<br /><br /><i>When Katie Met Cassidy</i> is a romantic comedy about gender and sexuality, and the importance of figuring out who we are in order to go after what we truly want. It's also a portrait of a high-drama subculture where barrooms may as well be bedrooms, and loyal friends fill in the spaces absent families leave behind. Katie's glimpse into this wild yet fiercely tightknit community begins to alter not only how she sees the larger world, but also where exactly she fits in.

Im Weißen Rössl ... spielt dieser Roman zwar nicht, aber Vanessa betreibt mit ihren Eltern den Auhof am Wolfgangsee. Und natürlich trägt sie Dirndl … Doch ihre Neigung gilt nicht nur der traditionellen Welt im Salzkammergut, sondern auch: Frauen. Als sie sich an ihrem 27. Geburtstag vor ihren engsten Freundinnen als lesbisch outet, reagieren sie offen, aber erstaunt. Ob Vanessa denn schon einmal eine kennengelernt habe, die ihr gefalle …? <br />Unter fragwürdigen Umständen lernt Vanessa kurze Zeit später die dynamische Unternehmensberaterin Louise Stern kennen. Trotz ihrer unterschiedlichen Hintergründe –<br />Louise hat ein Hochschulstudium und Kunden in ganz Europa, Vanessa die Kochlehre und ihr Zuhause am Wolfgangsee – funkt es zwischen den beiden. Eine Beziehung droht zunächst an den scheinbaren Unvereinbarkeiten zu scheitern. Zudem kann sich Vanessa nicht überwinden,<br />ihren Eltern reinen Wein einzuschenken. Zu groß ist ihre Sorge, sie zu enttäuschen. Doch dann wird Louise krank und braucht Unterstützung. Vanessa zögert trotz aller Ängste keine Sekunde. Die Beziehung wird offiziell. Und die Reaktion der konservativ eingestellten Eltern übertrifft die schlimmsten Erwartungen. Doch Vanessa nimmt den Kampf um ihre Freiheit, so zu leben und zu lieben, wie es sie glücklich macht, und um ihre Beziehung zu Louise tapfer<br />auf sich und wächst dabei über sich selbst hinaus…

Who is trying to kill the members of an elite special ops team that worked off the radar in Iraq in the '90s? It’s up to Dan Stagg to track down the survivors — the men with whom he stormed an undefended surveillance station, killing everyone inside. And now, many years later, the team is being targeted in what seems like a series of unrelated attacks. Dan teams up with his old comrade Al Benson, once a rising star of the USMC, now a respectable married civilian with a few secrets to hide. As they dig deeper into the secrets of the past, Dan discovers that Benson’s looking for more than just answers. An explosive affair threatens everyone’s future, and connects Dan to a past he thought he’d left behind.

<em>Infinitum Government Code 3.18.21.512: Genetic Experimentation Shall Be Strictly Forbidden</em><br /><br />Decades ago the people of Coni genetically engineered a race meant to help them. Instead of perfectly crafted assistants, however, they wound up with the Draconis, who possess unexpected power and ability—and the ability to match with suitable individuals and exponentially increase their magics. But matching cannot be predicted, prevented, or undone, and they are matching with people all across the Infinitum Government...<br /><br />Some think the Draconis should be annihilated. Some think they should be an independent race and given their own home. The most powerful minds in the Infinitum Government are fighting for one side or another, including murders, chancellors, spies, even prison guards. Others are using the debate to further their own ends, and they will stop at nothing to see those ends are reached...<br /><br />-----<br /><br />Not so long ago, Elton had a near-perfect life: loving family, successful business, and the prestigious position of Jeweler Troiseme of Mars. But betrayal and murder destroyed that life forever and now he and his sister have no choice but to be swept off to a different planet in the hopes of building a new life and leaving their past behind them. <br /><br />Before they settle into that new life, however, they decide to spend some time on Bangkok, the notorious planet of pleasure where they say all dreams come true...
