    Synopsis
    'I release you...' were the last words Rosalind remembered before her world went black. Stefan, the future duke of Montmouth, no doubt thought his words were welcomed but he couldn't have been more wrong. Oh, he was handsome as a pagan Norse god, but that was unimportant when her life as well as those of her family hung in the balance. With less than six weeks left, Rosalind has stopped believing in the fairy tale, the prince on the white horse, and the stolen kiss that would awaken her from her worst nightmares. Resigned to her fate, she waits for the inevitable curse to run its course. 'We must marry at once!' Stefan declared, fully expecting Rosalind to be delighted that he had come to save her, but he was sorely mistaken. Rosalind was no simpering docile female; she was a fiery temptress with a stubborn streak only matched by his horse, Samson. Insulting, infuriating, intoxicating, and alluring enough to drive a man mad. Stefan found himself thankful for the curse that required him to marry her, thankful for the betrothal contract he had so recently tried to release her from.... With the fortitude of a sailor shipwrecked, abandoned, and a solider warring for his life Stefan decides to lay siege to the greatest prize: Rosalind's heart.

    Synopsis
    From Johnny Shaw, the Anthony Award–winning author of Big Maria, comes a wild tale about the wonderful things that bring a family together—larceny, deception, and revenge. Fifteen years ago, Axel, Gretchen, and Kurt Ucker lost their father. At the same time, they learned that he had secretly been a thief their whole lives—and left a fortune unaccounted for. Since then, the Uckers have lived a precarious existence. Their small town shunned and shamed them. Their mother, Bertha, retreated into her religion and her favorite televangelist, Brother Tobin Floom. Axel got a dead-end job. Gretchen turned to petty crime. And Kurt stayed with his mom and his garage band. When Bertha dies, she leaves everything she has to Floom and his gold-plated revival. The Uckers are at a loss for words. And an inheritance, a house, and a future. Until their long-lost aunt shows up with a secret: Floom is their grandfather; some new relatives: a family of liars, cheats, and thieves; and best of all, a plan: infiltrate Floom’s multimillion-dollar ministry and pull off the grandest heist in Ucker family history. When you’ve got nothing left to lose, you might as well risk it all.

    A thin line separates life from death, freedom from oppression. One misstep. One wrong choice. When Cricket Black is purposely exposed to Bad Sam, she must choose: fight New Caelum's stranglehold on its citizens' freedom or succumb to the hopelessness of the lethal virus.

Sending the devastating Samael Strain virus into the outlying communities lands New Caelum on the verge of war with the western settlements. Inside the city, growing tension between the lower classes and New Caelum's elite rulers puts the city on edge and creates a growing divide between Vice-President Westlin Layne and his mother, President Ginger Layne. With death, chaos, and revolution surrounding them, will West and Cricket have to sacrifice their love for each other to bring a peaceful resolution to the wars that rage inside and outside the city?

    Synopsis
    In September 1971, the bloodiest prison riot in American history took place in sleepy upstate New York town of Attica. Yet most of that blood was spilled not by the inmates who took over Attica Correctional Facility during four desperate days, but by the state's governor and future vice president Nelson Rockefeller. This is the personal story of what those days were like, what went wrong, and how the tragedy at Attica holds up a mirror to America's dark treatment of its prison population. Clarence B. Jones and Stuart Connelly, the authors of the acclaimed memoir Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech That Transformed a Nation, take on the most urgent and least understood civil rights issue of today's society - prisoners' rights. Jones, the reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s former attorney and draft speechwriter, now tells the personal story of his time battling and negotiating for the inmates' survival as one of the observers and requested by the inmates during the rebellion. But Uprising: Understanding Attica, Revolution, and the Incarceration State goes beyond memoir - Jones and Connelly use Attica as a touchstone for a clear-eyed critique of what has gone wrong with America's prison system over the last 40 years.
