Someone is trying to kill Marc Foster. Attempted poisoning was bad enough, but when the would-be killer messes with the brakes on Marc's precious Porsche, the art dealer admits he needs help. He just wasn't expecting help to be quite so dark and sexy. Royce Karras loves his job at Ward Security. He's making up for a lifetime of bad decisions and a bloody past he'd rather forget. But Marc isn't the spoiled rich boy he thought he'd be protecting. Sticking close to Marc as his "boyfriend" gives Royce insight into his toxic family, but it also reveals a brilliant, compassionate man who completely disarms Royce. Against his better judgment, Royce finds himself falling. But can they find a way to make it work when Royce's past threatens to tear their lives apart? Their future hinges on a lost Renaissance painting, six bichon frises, and a pornographic Robin Hood. No worries, right?

Bryony Gray is becoming famous as a painter in London art circles. But life isn't so grand. Her uncle keeps her locked in the attic, forcing her to paint for his rich clients . . . and now her paintings are taking on a life of their own, and customers are going missing under mysterious circumstances. When her newest painting escapes the canvas and rampages through the streets of London, Bryony digs into her family history, discovering some rather scandalous secrets her uncle has been keeping, including a deadly curse she's inherited from her missing father. Bryony has accidentally unleashed the Gray family curse, and it's spreading fast. With a little help from the strange-but-beautiful girl next door and her paranoid brother, Bryony sets out to break the curse, dodging bloodthirsty paintings, angry mobs and her wicked uncle along the way.

Her quest takes to Australia to find the man she thinks holds the answer to the killer’s identity. While visiting this man, she has to run for her life under a hail of bullets. Someone will stop at nothing until she is dead. If she thought things were bad enough, they are about to get much worse... What some of my beta readers said... "Bravo for a plot that grabs the reader! The characters are intriguing and in the early chapters you've stirred up enough suggestion of internal conflict for at least Amanda, and Dorian to make readers want to go deeper into their lives and individual situations." "This book moves at a brisk pace from the very beginning, Amanda meeting her mother Jean for the first time after many years. The backstory surfaces rapidly, Amanda adopted out in Australia when Jean was seventeen and penniless, but now a rich widow in California able to call them back together. It is a busy plot around diverse characters eyeing a huge inheritance while a murder takes place and suspicion is rife, giving investigators a puzzle to unravel. Your prose is clearcut and to the point in both narration and dialogue, making the story easy to follow. Thank you so much for the captivating read."

Remember Chappaquiddick? Laura Farans does. Vividly! And she can't stop dreaming about it over and over many years later, because she was one of the "Boiler Room Girls" who attended the infamous party on that fateful July weekend in 1969 when a young woman's life was mysteriously snuffed out-along with a prominent senator's anticipated bid for the highest office in the land! But that dreadful incident was chicken feed when compared to other, even more horrific events that continued to feed Laura's troubling and odious behavior. And that was just fine with her, by the way, because this strange and beautiful woman-impossibly infectious and seductive on the surface-was as totally noxious inside as the magnificent but treacherous flower that spawned her sinister nickname! Chances are you won't like Laura Farans very much. Few did after getting to know her. But you won't easily forget the lady, either. Unless you were one of the unfortunate lovers who couldn't resist the deadly orchid's perilous allure, and you're not around to think about her any longer! "Brilliant! Haunting! Delivers! Double-DOUBLE dare you to put it down!" ~Tim Pelfry-National Police Ledger "Scary as hell! Every guy's worst nightmare! Where can I meet this astonishing creature?" ~Erik Simpson-Chicago Loyola Review

Modernism and the Architecture of Private Life offers a bold new assessment of the role of the domestic sphere in modernist literature, architecture, and design. Elegantly synthesizing modernist literature with architectural plans, room designs, and decorative art, Victoria Rosner's work explores the collaborations among modern British writers, interior designers, and architects in redefining the form, function, and meaning of middle-class private life. Drawing on a host of previously unexamined archival sources and works by figures such as E. M. Forster, Roger Fry, Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, and Virginia Woolf, Rosner highlights the participation of modernist literature in the creation of an experimental, embodied, and unstructured private life, which we continue to characterize as "modern."

Henry Wotton, gay, drug addicted, and husband of Batface, the irrefutably aristocratic daughter of the Duke of This or That, is at the center of a clique dedicated to dissolution. His friend Baz Hallward, an artist, has discovered a young man who is the very epitome of male beauty — Dorian Gray. His installation Cathode Narcissus captures all of Dorian's allure, and, perhaps, something else. Certainly, after a night of debauchery that climaxes in a veritable conga line of buggery, Wotton and Hallward are caught in the hideous web of a retrovirus that becomes synonymous with the decade. Sixteen years later the Royal Broodmare, as Wotton has dubbed her, lies dying in a Parisian underpass. But what of Wotton and Hallward? How have they fared as stocks soar and T-cell counts plummet? And what of Dorian? How is it that he remains so youthful while all around him shrivel and die? Set against the AIDS epidemic of the eighties and nineties, Will Self's Dorian is a shameless reworking of our most significant myth of shamelessness, brilliantly evoking the decade in which it was fine to stare into the abyss, so long as you were wearing two pairs of Ray-Bans.

Half-huldra Retz Gallows is having an awful day. First, he wakes up in the middle of driving to who-knows-where with an angry unicorn head in his passenger seat. This is almost normal, thanks to a lifetime of sharing a body with Nalem, a bone-controlling spirit with a penchant for wicked schemes and body-stealing joyrides. It's probably a bad idea to ask what else could go wrong. Jarrod Gallows left home with plans to rescue his little brother from possession. Instead, he got saddled with a dead-end job as a paranormal investigator, a Faerie curse, and a daredevil boyfriend who might be from another world. At least he's got a new job--except why is his brother Retz here and why does this sudden reunion feel more like a bane than a blessing? This day's going to get worse for the Gallows brothers before it gets better. To survive, they'll have to escape the forces controlling them, as well as the wrath of carnivorous unicorns, otherworldly realms, and even their own parents. Only time will tell if they'll make it out alive...or sober.
