A Marine with honor. After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he's been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team-all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it's no surprise Jamie doesn't have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he's been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie's life gets complicated. A soldier with secrets. Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn't know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF's top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break. Two men trying to survive. Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can't escape-duty, or love?

Truth and lies. Captain Jamie Callahan knows the Metahuman Defense Force frowns on fraternization. For once in his life, he's breaking all the rules. Having Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan on his team and in his bed is worth the risk of being found out. When a mission comes down requiring Alpha Team to go undercover in order to infiltrate a criminal alliance, Jamie knows it won't be easy. Putting his family's name on the line is nothing compared to the role the MDF wants him to play-that of a billionaire's son, discharged from the military, with a lover on his arm, looking to make his own shady business deals. Dirty little secret. Kyle knows the only way to be with Jamie is to hide their relationship from their superiors. Waking up to Jamie at home is more important than being together in public, or so Kyle thought, until he comes face to face with what he's been missing. Pretending to be a couple on paper for the sake of the mission thrusts Kyle into a world of incredible wealth and a social status he's not sure he belongs in, but he'll do anything to stay by Jamie's side. Play the game to win. Surrounded by the enemy, Jamie and Kyle need to trust each other now more than ever. Their covers-and the life they're trying to build together-depend on it.

Take a chance. Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin doesn't trust easily, and he most certainly doesn't trust spies. He'll work with them if ordered to, but that doesn't mean he has to like it. Except Agent Sean Delaney is proving to be the exception to the rule. There's something about Sean that gets under Alexei's skin and won't let go. Alexei would be lying if he said he wasn't interested in what lay beneath the agent's mask. When they're assigned together for a mission, Alexei vows to keep Sean safe all while trying to coax the hot agent into his bed. Hold onto hope. Agent Sean Delaney has spent his entire adult life living a lie for his country. When the MDF tasks him with finding evidence of criminal wrong-doing against the owner of a private military company, Sean knows exactly how to play the game to get what he wants. He just doesn't know how to handle Alexei's advances, nor his own attraction to the younger soldier. Being a spy is lonely work, and Sean knows he should keep his distance, but saying no to Alexei is impossible from the moment they first kiss. In a world of lies, the truth can be deadly. When the mission takes a turn for the worse, the only thing left to do is run. In the wake of betrayal, and in the path of danger, can their fragile trust survive the battle?

If the price of safety is slavery, would you bargain your life? A deadly infection threatens to wipe out humanity. The only people who can stem its advance are the Silver, a vampiric race who offer a simple exchange: protection in return for blood and subservience. It's not a deal that Emmy's willing to make, but as her world burns around her she finds herself in the arms of the enemy and the line between oppressor and saviour begins to blur. After an attack by the infected, Emmy is rescued by the handsome Drew who introduces her to the world of the Silver. Desperate to escape subjugation and confused by her attraction to him, she gathers what remains of her surrogate family and plans to make a break for freedom. But despite her efforts to resist, she is drawn further into the intrigues of the mysterious Silver through the agency of their ruler, the Primus: Solomon. Emmy refuses to submit to the cold and detached Primus and an attempt on her life makes it clear that he is unable to protect her from the political machinations of his race. As the connection between them deepens she must choose between her desire and her will to rebel, but can she trust his intentions when everyone is after her blood?

Stan Brakhage: Filmmaker is a collection of essays, photographs, personal statements, and reminiscences about the celebrated avant-garde filmmaker who died in 2003. The director of nearly four hundred short films, including Dog Star Man, Parts I-IV, and the Roman Numeral Series, Brakhage is widely recognized as one of the great artists of the medium. His shorts eschewed traditional narrative structure, and his innovations in fast cutting, hand-held camerawork, and multiple superimpositions created an unprecedentedly rich texture of images that provided the vocabulary for the explosion of independent filmmaking in the 1960s. Stan Brakhage: Filmmaker chronicles both the director's personal and formal development. The essays in this book—by historians, filmmakers, and other artists—assess Brakhage's contributions to the aesthetic and political history of filmmaking, from his emergence on the film scene and the establishment of his reputation, to the early-1980s. The result is a remarkable tribute to this lyrical, visionary artist.

Mr. Darcy has one night to convince Elizabeth Bennet to marry him. And he will do anything to show Lizzy that she would be blissfully happy in his home...and in his bed. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy is aware of his many faults. He can’t get them—or the woman who listed them so clearly and forcefully—out of his head. Ever since Darcy’s disastrous proposal to Elizabeth Bennet, he has realized the error of his ways—and that he has lost the only woman he ever loved. When a sudden storm strands Elizabeth and her aunt and uncle at Pemberley, Darcy realizes he has one night to convince Lizzy that she would be happy as his wife. He’ll use every skill he has—over and over again—to make sure that Elizabeth Bennet becomes Elizabeth Darcy. Even if it means discarding decorum. Even if it means compromising her. Even if it means admitting he is lost without her. Will Elizabeth explore her feelings…and more…with Mr. Darcy? This romantic novella is an intimate, sensual Pride and Prejudice variation. It features a lovestruck Mr. Darcy who leaves propriety behind…far, far behind. You won’t be able to find any of these scenes on the BBC miniseries, but you’ll wish you could! Due to Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s intimate explorations, this romantic adventure is best enjoyed by readers 18 years or age or older.
