Emma's autism allows her to see the world inside out and right past the physical scars that Brandon had begun to think would be the only thing the world would ever see. Set in Dallas, Texas, this is a Contemporary Romance series with BDSM elements and mature, atypical themes, including physical disfigurement, Autism, and OCD. Each book will be a complete story, no cliffhangers. Brandon To say that I'm ugly is like saying a cemetery is quiet. Okay, maybe parts of me are attractive, sure. I'd gotten more than my share of second, hungry glances from women at clubs. Then I'd turn to the other side and they'd get a nice big glimpse of Quasimodo. Only the desperately drunk or the 'I can fix you' chicks took a third look. Not Emma, though. She looked right at my scars and didn't miss a beat. The typical stares from folks noticing my face just blend into the background noise as I try to comprehend this odd little woman. She's still and quiet, clutching her teddy bear like it's nobody's business. And maybe it's not. Maybe least of all mine. Emma The guy walking in front of me is seriously massive. I'd heard that everything is bigger in Texas, but this is absolutely ridiculous. There's also the matter of his face. He has me both ready to swoon and run screaming in the same crazy second. I'm still not sure which of those options my body has decided on. I think the jury is still out on a lot of things to do with my current state of affairs. I wish I could talk the way that I think instead of stammering through life like a little girl who holds onto a damn teddy bear and continues to obsess over the color pink. I can't, though. My brain just doesn't work that way. His gentle brown eyes put me at ease for some reason I haven't quite worked out yet, and I really want to know his story.

Deep in the heart of a mist-shrouded island, an impossible secret is about to be discovered. Twig is used to feeling unwanted. Sent to live on a pony ranch for "troubled" girls on a misty, haunted island, Twig is about to discover the impossible — someone who needs her. Jolted awake from a bad dream, Twig follows the desperate whinny of a terrified horse out to the stables. There in the straw is a bleating little scrap of moonbeam. A silver-white filly with cloven hooves and a tiny, spiraling horn. A baby unicorn. Now Twig knows what secret is hiding in the island's mist: the last free unicorn herd. And a mysterious boy named Ben who insists that this impossible creature is now Twig's to care for. That she needs Twig's love and protection. Because there's something out there in the deep, dense shadows that's hunting for them... "R. R. Russell's Wonder Light dares to explore a world where unicorns are creatures of wonder and power, and girls can find both strength and courage to be themselves."—Robin Hobb, International bestselling author

In book 4, secrets are revealed, leaving Kyle struggling for a hold on his reason, his life and the love he's had deeply buried in his heart since the first time he saw Sarah. The Stables pulls together as a family while Sarah faces her demons, her lies and the unbreakable love she has for Kyle. Set in Texas, this is a Contemporary Romance series with BDSM elements and mature, atypical themes. Each book will be a complete story, no cliffhangers. Kyle Everyone is addicted to something. It's human nature. Part of what makes us tick. People who say they aren't addicted to at least one thing are just addicted to being in denial, and that's okay. Me? Well, I've been in full-blown acceptance of my many addictions for quite some time. Some of them I hate. Others I deal with. Some I absolutely love. One of them, I can't make up my mind about - Sarah Levitz. But sometimes what we want becomes this poisonous, soul-eating reflection of what we can't have; of what betrayed us, ripped out everything that was good and stomped it into the dirt. Like the heart that's not in my chest anymore because she tore it out and buried it in her grandma's backyard next to the time-capsule we were supposed to dig up together in a future that's no longer ours. Sarah I know I ain't smart. I maybe ain't as bad with learnin' like my brother Saul, but he did go to U of T while I barely managed my GED. It's hard - finishing high school while you're eight months pregnant. Sure, I could'a fit into a graduation gown, but no way in Hell was I gonna waddle my ass across stage so all the two-faced bitches could gawk and whisper. While others were walking across stage and being handed a roll of paper, I was being handed a beautiful baby girl. When they set her in my arms and the sunlight lit up her sweet, chubby face, I knew I was the luckiest momma alive. That precious angel was mine to cherish, my little Kylie, and damn straight, I was gonna do right by her. Even if I couldn't do right by no one else. Even if I couldn't do right by her father.

Ian's OCD draws him to Charlie at the same time it's pushing him away from her, but Charlie isn't about to let him control the way their relationship unfolds. Set in Dallas, Texas, this is a Contemporary Romance series with light BDSM elements and mature themes. Each book will be a complete story, no cliffhangers. Ian I'm trying to stop my eyes from staring at her, but that's like trying to tell my brain to stop worrying about the fact that my apartment door might still be unlocked because I only checked it twelve times this morning instead of sixteen times like I do on Thursdays. Even after twenty-eight years of the same shit, my rituals still find ways to argue with one another. Well, I can only assume that I was checking the latch on my crib when I was a baby, but I'm willing to bet money that I was. I've never had my place broken into, but it doesn't matter. I've never had a fire, either, but that doesn't stop me from making sure all my appliances are unplugged before I go to bed. And I mean all the damn appliances. You think it's no big deal until you're trying to crawl behind a dryer at two in the morning while you're in someone else's apartment. Yeah. No second date from her. Girls don't seem to like a guy who's a little... obsessive about some things. Okay, everything. A lot. A lot obsessive about everything. Might as well just let it all out, Rider, while you're staring like a shopping mall puppy, waiting for her to turn your way, see your sad little expression and wagging tail in the window, and then take the more sane puppy next to you home. The one who's been licking his butt for an hour like a normal dog should instead of obsessing about how unsanitary it is. Yes, my brain spends as much time obsessing about these clever little analogies as it does making sure I remember to brush my teeth. Four times. Twice on Tuesdays. Only once if it's raining. I can't even have a moment alone to myself to admire Charlie's fiery red hair from afar, because my own mind won't leave me the hell alone. Her hair captivates me, though, especially on days like this when the sun is brightly filtering down into the factory through the skylights to reflect on her waves of copper as it falls down her back. To say that I'm a little obsessive over Charlie's hair is to belittle the fact that I'm just obsessive about Charlie in general. Charlie My mom used to say I was just a mess waiting to happen. Disorder. Chaos. An Oklahoma tornado on two legs with fiery waves of hair trailing behind me. Nothing in my life has ever been cut and dry. From Emma to Italy, and all the crazy in between, I never have a lack of inspiration for the paint I slap against blank canvasses. Maybe that's what draws me to Ian. He's too neat. Too tidy. Too reserved and way too damn uptight. He has a sense of humor, when I can drag it out of him, and he's one of the most kind men I've ever met, but I wish he'd just let lose a little. Get messy and dirty with me. The man counts light-switch flicks and organizes his desk like it's a Sudoku puzzle where everything must be in its proper place. He's also a better man than what I've had in my life lately. Maybe a little order could do my chaos some good, and maybe a little tornado-Charlie could bring some much needed upheaval into Ian's organized world.

Rodger and Benjamin delve into the underworld of Tudor Britain... Conspiracy and murder combine to threaten Roger Shallot's own life in his fifth journal, The Gallows Murders, from acclaimed author Paul Doherty. Perfect for fans of Ellis Peters and Susannah Gregory. In the summer of 1523, the hot weather and the sweating sickness provide a fertile breeding ground for terrible murders and the most treasonable conspiracies. King Henry VIII has moved the court to Windsor where he slakes his lusts whilst the kingdom is governed by his first minister, Cardinal Wolsey. Someone is sending the King threatening letters from the Tower, under the name and seal of Edward, one of the princes supposedly murdered there, demanding that great amounts of gold be left in different parts of London. If the orders are not carried out, proclamations will be published throughout the capital which, coinciding with the outbreak of plague, may make it look as though the hand of God has turned against the Tudors for usurping the throne. Wolsey has only two people to turn to: his beloved nephew, Benjamin Daunbey, and Daunbey's faithful servant, Roger Shallot. Benjamin and Roger become embroiled in the murky Tudor underworld and the pressure to solve the mysteries mounts when King Henry threatens that Roger Shallot's life depends on it. What readers are saying about Paul Doherty: 'Light, light, light, but clever, clever, clever. And amusing. A relaxing afternoon's read!' 'Excellent book, kept me guessing 'til the end' 'Paul Doherty weaves a tangled web of murder and intrigue'

When the timeless love between Saul and Victoria begins to unravel, it may take Austin coming to terms with himself to put it all back together. Set in Dallas, Texas, this is a Contemporary Romance series with light BDSM elements and mature themes. Each book will be a complete story, no cliffhangers. In book 3, three lives collide, and it could bring The Stables down with them. This book is intended for mature readers and contains romantic scenes of intimacy, including m/m and m/m/f and a polyamorous lifestyle. This book does include light BDSM themes. Saul Victoria hangs my moon. She's the reason I get up in the morning and try so hard not to screw things up. I know I fail at that all the time, but I try. I love her, but it's not enough. I'm too stupid, or something, because I just can't figure it out. Inseparable since we were kids, now suddenly she's pushing away and nothing I seem to do can pull her back to me. Victoria Sometimes when you love someone, you have to push them away even if it hurts. And it hurts. It hurts so much, but I can't let him hold onto me. Saul's never loved anyone but me, but I don't know if that's because he's never tried. I don't think he knows, either. It's something he needs to figure out, because when you end up bound to someone for life simply because they were the first person there who gave half a shit, you can come to hate that binding as much as a rope around your neck. Austin What do I want? I've been told what to do for so damn long that I have no idea how to answer that question. All I do know is that a storm is coming. I can feel it in every part of this place that I've called home since I got my freedom. Saul and Victoria are heading in opposite directions and pulling The Stables apart at the seams. I think, maybe, they just need someone to connect them again. Someone to help them find the common ground, and maybe they can help me understand the answer to that first question I can never seem to answer.

Animal fables are said to have originated with Aesop, a semilegendary Samian slave, but the earliest surviving record of the fables comes from the Latin poet Phaedrus, who introduced the new genre to Latin literature. This verse translation of The Fables is the first in English in more than two hundred years. In addition to the familiar animal fables, about a quarter of the book includes such diverse material as prologues and epilogues, historical anecdotes, short stories, enlarged proverbs and sayings, comic episodes and folk wisdom, and many incidental glimpses of Greek and Roman life in the classical period. The Fables also sheds light on the personal history of Phaedrus, who seems to have been an educated slave, eventually granted his freedom by the emperor Augustus. Phaedrus' style is lively, clean, and sparse, though not at the cost of all detail and elaboration. It serves well as a vehicle for his two avowed purposes—to entertain and to give wise counsel for the conduct of life. Like all fabulists, Phaedrus was a moralist, albeit on a modest and popular level. An excellent introduction by P. F. Widdows provides information about Phaedrus, the history of The Fables, the metric style of the original and of this translation, and something of the place of these fables in Western folklore. The translation is done in a free version of Anglo-Saxon alliterative verse, a form used by W. H. Auden and chosen here to match the popular tone of Phaedrus' Latin verse.
