Back when Natie was a biker club’s girl, she’d get attached to every cheating throttle jockey who gave her the time of day. Rinse and repeat. At thirty-seven, it seems she still hasn’t learned. A handsome wolf in leathers like Dirty would eat her alive, then walk into the bar the next night and treat her like yesterday’s drink. It’s not as if he can help it, and Natie can’t help but let him. About a year ago, when Dirty’s pack plowed through the local biker gang like a buzz saw, he lost a few brain cells in a massive hemorrhage. Now he’s got CRS—can’t remember squat. Natie? He never forgot her name, nor the curves that make him sweat. When Dirty finally gets her alone, he recognizes his mate. This is more than a case of potential morning-after awkward. If he can’t remember who she is before he can imprint on her, it’ll not only break her heart, it could break him. If you’re looking for “mating trope” with fleshed out characters in a steamy romance novella that won’t leave your hanging at the end, read this HEA PNR treat.

Another dose of hilarity and mayhem from the author Carl Hiaasen calls “the real deal” In this winner of the German Thriller Prize, ex-cop Simon Brenner, as part of his never-ending quest to get as far away from being a cop as he can, takes a job as an ambulance driver in downtown Vienna. It’s a hair-raising job, though, made more so by the tendency of the other EMTs to place bets on how many red lights they can run. Even worse, Brenner’s new employer has a problem: its major competitor is somehow listening in on radio communications and beating his unit to every pickup. Knowing his past on the force, Brenner’s boss asks him to act like a cop and investigate. Meanwhile, is it Brenner’s paranoia or are certain wealthy elderly patients who are essentially healthy dying more quickly than they should? It isn’t long before Brenner’s life is in real danger, and once again it will take a certain amount of booze, pills, and bad behavior for our man to survive being a cop one more time. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A stone in the shoe is irritating. A stone around the neck is a nightmare. Victoria should be happy. Elated. Enemies have been defeated and her new life has endless possibilities. But things never stay uncomplicated for long. Not for her. The wolf essence stone was supposed to cure wolves of their shifting curse. Instead, it adheres itself to her, and casts a new curse on almost everyone surrounding her. Even worse, it speaks to her—leading her to a disturbing and heartbreaking realm where no one can find her and no one can follow. Each time she disappears, she returns with no memory of what transpired and is left with a feeling of dread. Toby suffers more from the curse than the rest of his pack. The wolf essence stone seems to actively hate him and often repels him away from the love of his life. Compounding their problems? A secret society wants the stone for their own nefarious ends and the evil witch who created the curse has also resurfaced—and everything they do puts Victoria’s life in jeopardy. All the supernaturals must band together in an epic battle for control of the stone. But before it’s over, one or more of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

A sexy new standalone shifter romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Anne Marsh... He’s the lone wolf… I don’t play well with other wolves. The pack needs muscle, and I provide it as their enforcer. My biker name is Gator—after the alligator that chewed my face up. Sure I can make a woman scream with pleasure, but the scars on my face? That’s truth in advertising right there. There’s not an ounce of pretty in me. I fight, I ride—and I do it alone. So chasing the gorgeous marine biologist who wanders into my bayou hunting for wolves is not my smartest move. She’s Beauty. I’m the Beast. That story’s already been told and life’s fresh out of happy endings. Who’s coming for her… The biker who rescues me from a mud bath in the bayou, the amazingly hot but rough-around- the-edges man with the powerful motorcycle, is the stuff of fantasy. Dirty fantasies. His powerful arms, broad shoulders, and muscled thighs make me tingle in all my favorite places. He’s also grumpy, surly, and way too take- charge. So I definitely can’t eat the eye candy…. Can I? I just got out of an abusive relationship and I’m not looking for a new man. I don’t need a complication like Gator. But I don’t know how much longer I can resist him either… LONE WOLF is a sexy standalone werewolf shifter romance with more than its fair share of humor, dirty sex, and alpha males who fall in love hard.

"As a little boy, I had a dream that my father had taken me to the woods where there was a dead body. He buried it and told me I must never tell. It was the only thing we'd ever done together as father and son, and I promised not to tell. But unlike most dreams, the memory of this one never left me. And sometimes...I wasn't altogether sure about one thing: was it just a dream?" When Augusten Burroughs was small, his father was a shadowy presence in his life: a form on the stairs, a cough from the basement, a silent figure smoking a cigarette in the dark. As Augusten grew older, something sinister within his father began to unfurl. Something dark and secretive that could not be named. Betrayal after shocking betrayal ensued, and Augusten's childhood was over. The kind of father he wanted didn't exist for him. This father was distant, aloof, uninterested... And then the "games" began. With A Wolf at the Table, Augusten Burroughs makes a quantum leap into untapped emotional terrain: the radical pendulum swing between love and hate, the unspeakably terrifying relationship between father and son. Told with scorching honesty and penetrating insight, it is a story for anyone who has ever longed for unconditional love from a parent. Though harrowing and brutal, A Wolf at the Table will ultimately leave you buoyed with the profound joy of simply being alive. It's a memoir of stunning psychological cruelty and the redemptive power of hope.

Der Titelheld Wolfgang Pagel, Sohn aus gutsituierter Familie, hat sich mit seiner verwitweten Mutter überworfen und lebt vom Glücksspiel. Als er ausgerechnet in der Nacht vor seiner Hochzeit alles verliert, begibt er sich im inflationsgeschüttelten Berlin auf die Suche nach Geld. Während Wolfgang immer weiter getrieben wird, wird seine Freundin Petra Ledig von der Vermieterin Frau Thumann, nur unzureichend bekleidet, aus der Wohnung geworfen, und wegen ihres Aufzugs von der Polizei festgenommen. Wolfgang trifft schließlich vollkommen abgebrannt auf einen ehemaligen Vorgesetzten vom Militär, Rittmeister von Prackwitz, und lässt sich von diesem überreden, ihm auf seinem Gut Neulohe als Verwalter beizustehen. Auf Neulohe gerät Wolfgang Pagel in einen familiären und politischen Sumpf. Rittmeister von Prackwitz weiß nicht, woher er Arbeiter für die Ernte bekommen und wie er seinem Schwiegervater die Pacht zahlen soll. Frau von Prackwitz liebt weder ihren Mann noch ihren Vater, möchte aber die geordneten Verhältnisse erhalten. Das fünfzehnjährige Töchterchen Violet hat eine heimliche Affäre mit dem Freikorps-Leutnant Fritz, der einen Putsch gegen die Demokratie plant, wird aber von dem zwielichtigen Diener Hubert Räder erpresst. Hans Fallada (1893-1947) war ein Künstler der Neue Sachlichkeit. Er orientiert sich an der Realität, auf die damalige Gesellschaft und auf deren Probleme ein, z. B. die Armut vieler Menschen. Die Voraussetzung dafür war ein kritischer Blick auf die damalige Gegenwart. Die Umgebung wurde nüchtern und realistisch dargestellt. Die soziale, politische und wirtschaftliche Wirklichkeit der Weimarer Republik, die Nachwirkungen des Ersten Weltkrieges und die Inflation waren beliebte Motive. Die Themen, die die Gesellschaft bewegten, fanden sich in der Literatur wieder.
