“A beautiful portrait of being in Paris in the glittering 1920s—as a wife and as one’s own woman.” —Entertainment Weekly

New York Times Bestseller

A deeply evocative story of ambition and betrayal, The Paris Wife captures the love affair between two unforgettable people: Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley.

Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet twenty-eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness—until she meets Ernest Hemingway. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group—the fabled “Lost Generation”—that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Though deeply in love, the Hemingways are ill prepared for the hard-drinking, fast-living, and free-loving life of Jazz Age Paris. As Ernest struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history and pours himself into the novel that will become The Sun Also Rises, Hadley strives to hold on to her sense of self as her roles as wife, friend, and muse become more challenging. Eventually they find themselves facing the ultimate crisis of their marriage—a deception that will lead to the unraveling of everything they’ve fought so hard for.

A heartbreaking portrayal of love and torn loyalty, The Paris Wife is all the more poignant because we know that, in the end, Hemingway wrote that he would rather have died than fallen in love with anyone but Hadley.

“This book was amazing! I had trouble putting it down, and did so reluctantly to sleep. The only bad thing about this book is that there isn’t a sequel yet!” -Stephanie

The Prime Sovereignty, a land divided into five kingdoms, is home to many people of power. Seventeen-year-old Lox is powerful in his own right, although he doesn’t fully understand how. All he knows is that – like his mentor, Ember – he has a gift that is both rare and deadly. With his abilities, Lox learns that people like him are born to do only one thing: kill. Just not for free, of course. Thus, with Ember leading the way, Lox begins working in the Prime Sovereignty’s oldest, and most fearsome, profession: he becomes an assassin.

However, the practice of assassination – already a complex craft – becomes even more complicated when Lox finds himself tagging along as a member of a team formed by one of the realm’s most noble families. A group with members as talented as he is, but far more mysterious, and all tasked to work together in order to achieve the impossible: killing the the immortal Emperor Nal.

As he and his companions delve deeper into the secret of the Emperor’s immortality, Lox finds himself facing foes more formidable than he ever imagined – enemies fueled by something that dates back to before the existence of the Prime Sovereignty. Tested to his limits, Lox must use his wits, his will, and his blades to secure not just the future of his own realm, but the wider world beyond as well.

“You’ll never look at a creepy, crawling insect the same way again. What a fun read, with frequent breaks to gather my senses!” -Veralisa F.

A scientific expedition journeys deep into the Brazilian jungle in search of a career-making discovery: a carnivorous insect so rare that no team has ever managed to confirm its existence. But surviving the rainforest’s many unknown and mysterious dangers will be far more difficult than the team could have imagined.

Insects: The Complete Trilogy includes three full-length novels:

Insects (Book 1): a team of scientists journey into the uncharted Amazon rainforest in search of a deadly, career-making discovery: the rare carnivorous insect reptilus blaberus. But when rising floodwaters cut the expedition off from civilization, the hunters quickly become the hunted in the terror-filled night.

Insects: The Hunted (Book 2): the team returns to a different section of the remote jungle again in pursuit of reptilus blaberus, this time accompanied by a reality TV production crew to fund, document and protect the expedition.

Insects: Specimen (Book 3): the team attempts to continue its studies of reptilus blaberus under different circumstances, but the carnivorous insect’s lethal instincts aren’t dulled by a change of scenery.

“What a fun read! This took me right back to high school, with all the hope and angst we all had…and it reads as a genuine experience.” -Kris

Beware: This is a real high school diary.

I will not fall madly in love with a charming prince or my future husband. I won’t even get pregnant with that guy in Calculus. Hell, I won’t even take Calculus. Diary Girl is my journey through a four year long maze of cut throat friendships, popularity races, diet pills, and mortal enemies – and somehow I find my way out.

This project is a compilation of real diary entries stripped straight from the journals I vigorously wrote during my four years in high school. So, although the names have been changed, I promise that the stories, experiences, and people are all very real. For me, high school was not a single hurdle that I needed to overcome. It was not only an eating disorder or only true loneliness in the midst of a large group of friends. It was some new challenge every day. And now, it’s all yours.

“I read the book through the night and in the morning I went like a zombie to work.” -Milena

When reformed party girl Haven Callahan is given the reins to daddy’s pro hockey team, she discovers veteran player, Jack Nolan, is the one calling the shots…

Thrust into her new role as team owner, Haven strikes a hasty but lucrative trade deal, only to find out her new star forward and the sexy groomsman she hooked up with at a friend’s wedding are one and the same man.

At thirty-two, Jack knows if he’s going to have his chance at the Stanley Cup, it’s now or never. But instead of landing a spot on his dream team, he winds up traded to the last-place Milwaukee Renegades, where he soon finds himself playing to a non-existent fan base in a rundown stadium named after crappy pizza. He’s tempted to hang up his skates, except he’s fought for everything he has and he isn’t about to give up without a fight.

In a sport where men coach, play, and call the shots, Haven struggles to find her footing. Worse yet, she can’t keep her hands off the team merchandise—Jack. With Jack on the team and on her side, the Renegades are soon playing less like middling beer-leaguers and more like a pro-level hockey club.

But Jack and Haven are hiding a dirty little secret, and if the media discovers they’re melting the ice after hours, it’s game over.
