“The depth of characterizations, the steady progression of the plot and the tongue-in-cheek title will attract readers….” -Publishers Weekly

New York Times Bestselling Author

Eloisa James breathes new life into one of the most popular fiction genres with her highly original debut novel Potent Pleasures, a charming, vividly peopled Regency romance. With an uncanny wit and an eye for the whimsical, she unravels a complex–and often hilarious–chain of events inadvertently set in motion by a young woman’s first taste of forbidden pleasure.

About to make her debut in London society, Charlotte Calverstill, beneath the lavish gowns and manners of a well-brought-up young lady, yearns for a taste of freedom. Pushing propriety aside, one evening she sneaks out with a friend to attend a masked ball, and there meets a devastatingly handsome stranger who relieves her–not against her wishes–of her virtue, then vanishes.

Years later, when they meet again, the rogue does not remember Charlotte. But she certainly remembers him; she has since learned not only his identity, but also a titillating piece of gossip about him that is sure to set society abuzz. The intricate web that a now-wiser Charlotte weaves to exact her due ensures justice for some and great merriment for all.

Taking the Regency historical to fresh new places, with artful smoothness and irrepressible humor, Eloisa James delivers a winsome tale of first love and life’s unexpected surprises.

“Intelligent, rigorous . . . Emily Bazelon is a compassionate champion for justice in the domain of childhood’s essential unfairness.” —Andrew Solomon, The New York Times Book Review

Being a teenager has never been easy, but in recent years, with the rise of the Internet and social media, it has become exponentially more challenging. Bullying, once thought of as the province of queen bees and goons, has taken on new, complex, and insidious forms, as parents and educators know all too well.

No writer is better poised to explore this territory than Emily Bazelon, who has established herself as a leading voice on the social and legal aspects of teenage drama. In Sticks and Stones, she brings readers on a deeply researched, clear-eyed journey into the ever-shifting landscape of teenage meanness and its sometimes devastating consequences. The result is an indispensable book that takes us from school cafeterias to courtrooms to the offices of Facebook, the website where so much teenage life, good and bad, now unfolds.

Along the way, Bazelon defines what bullying is and, just as important, what it is not. She explores when intervention is essential and when kids should be given the freedom to fend for themselves. She also dispels persistent myths: that girls bully more than boys, that online and in-person bullying are entirely distinct, that bullying is a common cause of suicide, and that harsh criminal penalties are an effective deterrent. Above all, she believes that to deal with the problem, we must first understand it.

Blending keen journalistic and narrative skills, Bazelon explores different facets of bullying through the stories of three young people who found themselves caught in the thick of it. Thirteen-year-old Monique endured months of harassment and exclusion before her mother finally pulled her out of school. Jacob was threatened and physically attacked over his sexuality in eighth grade—and then sued to protect himself and change the culture of his school. Flannery was one of six teens who faced criminal charges after a fellow student’s suicide was blamed on bullying and made international headlines. With grace and authority, Bazelon chronicles how these kids’ predicaments escalated, to no one’s benefit, into community-wide wars. Cutting through the noise, misinformation, and sensationalism, she takes us into schools that have succeeded in reducing bullying and examines their successful strategies. The result is a groundbreaking book that will help parents, educators, and teens themselves better understand what kids are going through today and what can be done to help them through it.

Ivan Sorokin is missing. Who wants him out of the picture—his wife, his business partner, or the stripper who holds his heart?

Josie Tucker stands on Beach Street with her back to the San Francisco wharf. Above her, the Ghirardelli sign winks in the dusky twilight, seducing her. The ice cream parlor lights beckon like a lactose Lothario, a casein Casanova, trying hard to woo her. But her heart longs for dumplings, for dim sum.

Dim sum means “heart’s delight.” Imagine nibbling at a savory golden pouch stuffed with delicately seasoned meat. If a lover offers the morsel on the tips of exquisitely lacquered chopsticks late in the morning while reclining on silken cushions…that’s food for the heart.

Chinatown. Dim sum. Murder. Josie’s perfect ingredients for adventure.

A shadow fell over Amber Blackwood’s life the day her brother died, and only on the night he returned did she think it could be lifted.

Unfortunately for Amber, Toby’s mysterious reappearance doesn’t give her the peace she sought. It does gift her with a curse, bestowing powers on Amber no mortal should ever have. But like all curses, this one carries a heavy price, and soon Amber realizes the power she has may cost her dearly.

Chased from the mortal world by a madman in a mask and suit, Amber discovers a land beyond life, an immortal city called Afterlife so vast and ancient it spans eternity. Three factions vie for power in the sprawling metropolis, each one with their sights set on the mortal girl and the powerful curse she bears, while Amber just wants to find her brother and learn why he brought this curse only to abandon his sister to it. She has no friends in Afterlife and nowhere to run, and despite the dubious help of an infuriatingly charming rebel named Dino Cardona, her survival is anything but guaranteed. Amber’s enemies will do anything and kill anyone to harness her power, and if she can’t find her brother before the curse awakens, she could be the spark that will make both worlds burn.

Town Father- Or, Where Graceful Girls Abound – Amazon

“Brennan does a wonderful job of bringing this off-kilter utopia to life in a narrative that is both highly entertaining and genuinely moving.” -Historical Novel Society

Three hundred independent-minded women in 1880s California have embarked on a seemingly impossible journey: to establish a town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada composed exclusively of women. The only way for the singular town of Hestia to succeed, though, is for a second generation of residents to come along, and the women imagine there must be, somewhere in the country, a benign and willing gentleman who can help them. In short, a Town Father.

Set against the rough-and-ready backdrop of Gold Country, Town Father chronicles the occidental adventure of Hestia’s choice, Henry O’Farrell, as he comes to believe in the women’s feminist dream, living their trials and tragedies at their side. Rosella Kimball (architect), Lucien Thorpe (poet, philosopher), Maisie Grace (markswoman), Tilly Swan (builder), and the object of his private affections, Avis Honeycutt (executive) — along with 295 other utopian trailblazers — may not be his wives, but they are his loves. Hestia, named for the Greek goddess of hearth and home, is where he was always meant to be.

The only question is whether society at large will let them all live in peace…

I never thought I’d see Jack Gray again, so when I hear his voice behind me during a job interview, I nearly fall out of my seat. It’s been years since I’ve seen him and heard that voice. Since then, Jack’s become an artist for the wealthy, and I’ve become dirt poor.

If I don’t get this job, I’m screwed. But, if I have to work near Jack I’ll lose my mind. He’s the one who got away, and there are no second chances when it comes to love.

Amelia Lamont never asked to unleash her inner vampire.

Amelia’s normal teen world is shattered when a terrifying nightmare awakens the monster inside her. A newfound, insatiable thirst for blood that leads her to drain the school quarterback is only the beginning; she’s horrified to discover that her family and best friend Kendrick have been harboring the secret all along. And is the strangely alluring boy who seems hell-bent on curbing her murderous, blood-filled desires a friend, or foe?

To escape detection, Amelia and her twin brother Dorian are forced to move to a new town, and the challenge of a new, exclusive high school where nearly every classmate smells like prey. Including the irresistible Ty, who seems hauntingly familiar, yet darkly menacing …

Amelia’s disturbing dreams and entanglement in a web of forbidden romance render her increasingly powerless against the chilling lies and secrets of her newfound supernatural world. And, as she soon discovers, vampire politics mixed with outlawed love can be a lethal cocktail.

Falling in love may just cost Amelia everything: her friends, her family…even her life.
