“One of the premier novelists of her generation, possessed of a mastery of craft and an uncompromising vision that grow more powerful with each book . . . ” -The Washington Post

Pulitzer Prize Winning and NY Times Bestselling Author

It takes a great deal of faith to gear a novel this horse-besotted to the general public. Horse love is one of those things either you get or you don’t, and for the vast majority of the populace, horse stories tend to read like porn written for 13-year-old girls. The good news, then, is that while a love of all things equine is not a prerequisite for enjoying Jane Smiley’s Horse Heaven, a love of human perversity is. Racing, after all, is at worst a dangerous, asset-devouring folly and at best an anachronism, as one of her horse trainers notes:

The Industry Leaders had made it their personal mission to bring horse racing to the attention of the general public, with the NFL as their model and television as their medium of choice, which was fine with Farley, though his own view was that horse racing out at the track, newspaper reading, still photography, placing bets in person, and writing thank-you notes by hand were all related activities, and football, ESPN, video, on-line betting, and not writing thank-you notes at all were another set of related activities.

A crucial piece of information for Smiley fans is that, among her many novels, Horse Heaven most resembles Moo. (And there’s even a pig!) In fact, with these two books it appears that this versatile author has finally found a home in which to unpack her impressive gifts: that is, the sprawling, intricately plotted satirical novel. Her target in this case is not academia but horse racing–less commonly satirized but, here at least, just as fruitfully so. Wickedly knowing, dryly comic, the result is as much fun to read as it must have been to write.

None of which means that Horse Heaven is a casual read. For starters, one practically needs a racing form to keep track of its characters, particularly when their stories begin to overlap and converge in increasingly unlikely and pleasing ways. Perhaps it says something about the novel that the easiest figures to follow are the horses themselves: loutish Epic Steam, the “monster” colt; the winsome filly Residual; supernaturally focused Limitless; and trembling little Froney’s Sis. And that’s not to forget Horse Heaven’s single most prepossessing character, Justa Bob–a little swaybacked, a little ewe-necked, but possessed of a fine sense of humor and an abiding disdain for winning races by anything but a nose.

Then there are the humans, including but not limited to socialite Rosalind Maybrick, her husband Al (who manufactures “giant heavy metal objects” in “distant impoverished nation like locations”), a Zen trainer, a crooked trainer, a rapper named Ho Ho Ice Chill, an animal psychic, and a futurist scholar, as well as attendant jockeys, grooms, and hangers-on. (Not to mention poor, ironically named Joy, a few years out of Moo U and still having problems relating.) It’s a little frustrating to watch this cast come and go and fight for Smiley’s attention; you glimpse them so vividly, and then they disappear for another hundred pages, and it breaks your heart.

But there are certainly worse problems a novel could have than characters to whom you grow over-attached. A plot this convoluted would be one, if only it weren’t so hard to stop reading. There are elements of magic realism, astounding coincidences, unabashed anthropomorphism. (At one point–while Justa Bob throws himself against his stall in sorrow at leaving his owner’s tiny, wordless mother behind–this reviewer cried, “Shameless!” even as she began to tear up.) Improbably, it all works. Horse Heaven is a great, joyous, big-hearted entertainment, a stakes winner by any measure, and for both horse lovers and fans of Smiley’s dry, character-based wit, a cause for celebration on par with winning the Triple Crown. –Mary P.

“A pitch-perfect setting and a keen eye for detail round out a story that is sure to please Ashenden fans and series devotees alike.” —RT Book Reviews

When the biker who broke her heart rides into town, a woman must choose between passion and duty. Jackie Ashenden ups the ante in a seductive series co-written with Megan Crane, Rachael Johns, and Maisey Yates.

Leonidas “Blue” Delacroix might be the prodigal son of New Orleans aristocrats, but the Deacons of Bourbon Street are his real family. And with their patriarch murdered, Blue wants nothing more than to unleash hell on the motorcycle club’s enemies—even if it means taking up arms against the girl who used to be his best friend. She’s done quite a bit of growing up, and suddenly their chemistry is red-hot. But where’s the line between ruthless seduction and sweet temptation?

For Alice Day, loyalty is everything. When Blue skipped town, she had no choice but to adopt a new family: their rivals, the Graveyard Ministry. Seeing him again reawakens old feelings . . . and fiery fantasies. Alice could never forget the scent of leather on his skin—just as she could never forgive the sting of his betrayal. But while the Ministry has treated her like one of their own, Blue is part of her soul. And as their liaisons hit the boiling point, Alice trusts her heart with the deadliest choice of her life.

Join Alaric, Ulric, and Daciana in ALPHA MOON as they discover there’s more to life in the 1500s than plowing fields and attending balls. A powerful witch, who practices black magic, won’t hesitate to place a curse upon them—one that will have them howling at the silvery moon.

In SILVER MOON, Candra Lowell is sent to live with her aunt and uncle in present-day Connecticut. She thinks it’s because she’s a troublemaker, but Candra’s parents only shipped her off for one reason: to learn how to become a werewolf. She’ll learn there’s more to the story, though, when a rival pack has their hearts set on making her visit a living hell.

The past and the present merge into one in BLACK MOON as Candra falls even harder for her star-crossed lover, Benjamin Conway, who also happens to be her enemy, and wrestles with the fact that she has awakened an ancient soul inside her body. Can she stretch her newfound claws in peace, or will she wish she had never become a werewolf?

In the final installment of the saga, BLOOD MOON, Candra and Ben travel back to the sixteenth century, where they’ll embark on their toughest journey yet—stopping Alaric and breaking the curse which started it all. But if ending the werewolf curse, and the powers that come with it, means Candra and Ben will be stuck in the sixteenth century, can they live with the fact that they’ll never return home and see their families again?

But after generations of failures and botched attempts, hope is beginning to dwindle. That is, until a young scientist makes a unique discovery—and everything changes. Suddenly, there’s reason to hope again, and it rests within a group of genetically engineered children that are both human and Variant.

Terry is one of these children, modified and trained to endure the harsh conditions of a planet he cannot begin to understand. After years of preparation, Terry thinks he knows what to expect. But the reality is far stranger than anything he can imagine—and what he will become is far more dangerous.

Is he still the boy I grew up with, or are the rumors true? After all, everyone knows rock stars don’t date nice girls. Rock stars use nice girls.

His back was to me, tall with long black hair falling over his shoulders. He signed autographs and took selfies. I wanted to shout and get his attention. I didn’t even know his name.

He turned around. I saw his face up close for the first time. Time stopped. My limbs trembled, going weak. I was seeing a ghost. A ghost of the boy I’d grown up with. The boy I’d fallen in love with. The boy I’d long thought dead.

Then dark eyes met mine as Ren spoke my name and I fell for him all over again.

Now he says he wants me in his life. I want to believe him, but five years is a long time. Ren’s changed. I’ve changed. He refuses to speak about the past. He won’t tell me why he ran off and disappeared. Is he still the boy I fell in love with? Or are the rumors true?

After all, everyone knows rock stars don’t date nice girls.

Nick Bradford is banking everything on winning the Sweetrock chili contest. He needs the grand prize money to save the restaurant that has been in his family for three generations. Nick’s chili is known to be the best in the county, so this hometown cooking cowboy figures he’s got the contest tied up … until city slicker chef Sam Dunn shows up and tries to steal the win right out from under him. Nick’s not going to let that happen, even if she is prettier than a Montana sunset.

Sam Dunn has moved around her whole life. She longs to put down roots in Boston and establish herself as a top notch chef … until she loses her job and her apartment. When her best friend from college tells her about the local chili contest with the lucrative prize money, Sam sees a way to get some seed money to start a restaurant of her own. She can’t get distracted by hunky cowboy Nick Bradford, even if he is hotter than a jalapeño pepper. Besides, she’s not staying on Montana, and short term flings aren’t her thing.

But the chili isn’t the only thing heating up in Sweetrock, and soon Nick realizes there might be more to lose than the prize money-he could also lose his heart. Can he come up with a way to save the restaurant and show Sam what ‘home’ really means?
