Offered here for the first time in collection form, USA Today bestselling author Maisey Yates' Copper Ridge complete series—plus two bonus novellas! Part Time Cowboy Sadie Miller isn't expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she's the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw… Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she's so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right? Brokedown Cowboy Since losing his wife Connor Garrett has concentrated exclusively on his family's ranch. Until his friend Felicity Foster needs a place to stay and Connor invites her to move in temporarily. That's what friends do—and Liss is his rock. What friends don't do? Suddenly start fantasizing about each other in their underwear. Or out of it… Since high school, Liss has kept her raging crush in check. Another few weeks should be a breeze. But helping Connor rebuild his life only reinforces how much she longs to be a part of it. One explosive encounter, and she'll discover that getting what you always wanted can feel better than you ever dreamed… Bad News Cowboy Kate Garrett keeps life simple—work hard and ride horses. Lately she feels a bit restless, especially when Jack Monaghan is around. Sexy and shameless, Jack is the kind of trouble you don't tangle with unless you want your heart broken. Still, Kate could always use his help in learning how to lasso someone a little less high-risk… Jack can't pinpoint the moment the Garrett brothers' little sister suddenly stopped seeming so…little. Now here he is, giving flirting tips to the one woman who needs zero help turning him on. Love's a game he's never wanted to play. But he'll have to hurry up and learn how before the best thing that ever entered his life rides right back out again…

The novella, one of the most sophisticated genres of narrative literature, owes its development primarily to German belles letters. In the present collection, Mr. Steinhauer has assembled a representative sampling that ranges from the Enlightenment to the postwar periods and reveals the scope and flexibility of this art form. Included are Wieland's Love and Friendship Tested, Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas, Chamisso's Peter Schlemihl, Hoffmann's Mademoiselle de Scudery, Keller's Clothes Make the Man, Meyer's Sufferings of a Boy, Mann's The Bajazzo, Fontane's Stine, Hauptmann's Heretic of Soana, Kafka's Hunger Artist, Schnitzler's Fraulein Else, and Bergengruen's Ordeal by Fire.

A master of driving pace, exotic setting, and complex plotting, Harold Lamb was one of Robert E. Howard's favorite writers. Here at last is every pulse-pounding, action-packed story of Lamb's greatest hero, Khlit the Cossack, the “wolf of the steppes.” Journey with the unsung grandfather of sword and sorcery in search of ancient tombs, gleaming treasure, and thrilling landscapes. Match wits with deadly swordsmen, scheming priests, and evil cults. Rescue lovely damsels, ride with bold comrades, and hazard everything on your brains, skill, and a little luck. This four-volume set collects for the first time the complete Cossack stories of Harold Lamb: every adventure of Khlit the Cossack and those of his friends, allies, and fellow Cossacks, many of which have never appeared between book covers. Compiled and edited by the Harold Lamb scholar Howard Andrew Jones, each volume features essays Lamb wrote about his stories, an informative introduction by a popular author, and a wealth of rare, exciting swashbuckling fiction. In the concluding volume, gallop into adventure with Khlit and Kirdy for their final challenge in The Wolf Master, out of print since 1933. Then, delve into a treasure trove of stories gleaned from rare magazines: an account of a desperate mission for Khlit’s old friend Ayub; three tales of the valorous Koum and the champion swordsman Gurka; two daring ventures by Stenka Razin, the Robin Hood of the steppes; five short stories of Uncle Yarak, a Cossack fighting in World War II; and more than a half dozen other swashbuckling tales from the steppes.

Three prolific authors bring truth to the title of this heart-wrenching book, Love Is Never Painless, with a collection of novellas that explores the deeper side of love -- the side rarely explored in love stories. In Eileen M. Johnson's "How the Other Half Lives," longtime friends Jamellah and Fernecia are having trouble with the men in their lives. And as their worlds seem to crumble, they must count on their friendship to keep it together. In "Love Is 2 Blame," by V. Anthony Rivers, Malcolm is devastated after his two-year relationship with Shaylisa ends. And trying to move on will not be easy -- but the lovely Zahara may be the perfect woman to show Malcolm what true love is all about. In Zane's "Staring Evil in the Face," Robier has everything: a successful career, beautiful children, and the woman of his dreams. Having loved Tiphanie since college, he is determined to keep his marital vows -- until Tiphanie is involved in a horrible car accident that changes the entire course of their lives. From nervous breakdowns to drug addiction, in Love Is Never Painless, Zane, Johnson, and Rivers have penned powerful stories that not only will have readers talking, but will bring a new perspective to their own relationships.

The three novellas presented here -- The Ditress'd Orphan, The City Jilt,and The Double Marriage-- were published separately in 1726, but were originally intended for a single volume. Haywood was a dangerous entity in the eighteenth century: a writing woman, writing for women. Like many female authors before her, Haywood was labeled and condemned by men as unfeminine, licentious, immodest and usurping. She dared to wield that masculine instrument, the pen, and speak her mind in public like a man.

Die Bekenntnisse eines Gentlemans Gibt es ein abschreckenderes Beispiel für junge Bildungsreisende als Sir Henry Montague? Nach Montys Cavaliersreise wird der englische Adel seine Sprösslinge bestimmt nie wieder auf den Kontinent schicken. Irgendwie ist er immer in eine Tändelei verwickelt. Oder betrunken. Oder zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort. Nackt! Kein gutes Vorbild für seine Reisegefährten, weder für seine kleine Schwester Felicity, noch für seinen Jugendfreund Percy. Doch Monty will keinen Augenblick vergeuden, denn bald heißt es zurück zum gestrengen Herrn Vater und die Standespflichten wahrnehmen. Montys Unbesonnenheit aber bringt sie alle in unvorhergesehene Schwierigkeit und bald sind Wegelagerer und Piraten sein geringstes Problem. Nicht zuletzt seine unausgesprochene und unerfüllte Liebe zu Percy. Noch nie war das 18. Jahrhundert so geistreich, verwegen und charmant.

»Ein herausragendes Buch! Es ist voller ungewöhnlicher Figuren, deren Leben von Vergangenem erfüllt und von Gegenwärtigem gesprengt wird – großartig geschrieben, packend und unvergesslich.« Tom Rachman, Autor von Die Unperfekten Adam Ross ist ein Meister der unerwarteten Pointen, jede seiner sieben Stories berührt, schlägt den Leser in seinen Bann und trifft am Ende wie ein Blitz: Ob es eine junge Frau auf dem Weg zu einer Affäre ist, ein ungleiches Brüderpaar im tragischsten Moment seiner Rivalität oder ein liebenswerter Loser, dessen Vertrauensseligkeit ihn all seine Ersparnisse kostet – mühelos und elektrisierend erzählt Adam Ross von dem dramatischen, oft zutiefst komischen Augenblick, in dem die Dinge außer Kontrolle geraten. Und weckt dabei soviel Mitgefühl für seine Figuren, dass wir nur allzu gern mit ihnen in ihr Verhängnis laufen.

Three young, wealthy titled women decide to spend the social Season admiring the bucolic splendor of the Yorkshire Dales rather than dodging fortune hunters and scandalmongers in London. A fine plan–until the ladies’ traveling coach lands in a muddy ditch, and foul weather strands them at the estate of former officer Nathanial Stratton. As luck (or Cupid?) would have it, Nathaniel and his two friends, Kit Stirling and Greyville Trent, also have no patience with matchmaking and romance…. or so they insist.

Diesen Fantasy-Helden werden Sie nie wieder vergessen! Locke Lamora ist ein Held. Nein, eigentlich ist er das nicht: Er ist ein Dieb, ein Lügner und ein Ganove, wenn auch mit guten Manieren. Mit seiner Bande bewegt er sich in den Kanälen und engen Gassen des Herzogtums Camorr, um die Nobilität um ihre Schätze zu erleichtern. Und darin ist Locke unschlagbar, denkt er zumindest. Bis ein weiterer Verbrecher in Camorr auftaucht. Locke muss handeln – und das Abenteuer seines Lebens beginnt ... Im Stadtstaat Camorr hat man eine ganz eigene Lösung gefunden, um die Kriminalität unter Kontrolle zu halten: den „Geheimen Frieden“. Gemäß dieser Absprache zwischen dem Adel und dem Herrscher der Unterwelt dürfen Diebe mehr oder weniger ungestraft ihr Unwesen treiben, solange die Aristokratie von ihnen verschont bleibt. Doch Locke Lamora und seine Gentlemen-Ganoven halten nicht viel von Absprachen und haben es sich zur Gewohnheit gemacht, die Reichen der Stadt um ihr Geld zu erleichtern. Das funktioniert wunderbar, bis der geheimnisvolle Graue König mithilfe eines scheinbar unbesiegbaren Soldmagiers die Macht über die Unterwelt an sich reißt und droht, das sensible Herrschaftsgefüge von Camorr aus dem Gleichgewicht zu bringen – und dazu braucht er Lockes einzigartige Fähigkeiten ... Mit diesem Roman betritt ein einzigartiges Talent die Bühne der internationalen Fantasy: Scott Lynchs „Die Lügen des Locke Lamora“ ist nicht nur eine atemberaubende Weltenschöpfung, sondern auch ein Abenteuerroman, der den Leser nicht mehr loslässt.
