MEET THE DOG
WHO WILL SHOW THE WORLD
HOW TO BE HUMAN
The New York Times bestselling novel from Garth Stein—a heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope—a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it.
“The perfect book for anyone who knows that compassion isn’t only for humans, and that the relationship between two souls who are meant for each other never really comes to an end. Every now and then I’m lucky enough to read a novel I can’t stop thinking about: this is one of them.” —Jodi Picoult
“It’s impossible not to love Enzo.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
“This old soul of a dog has much to teach us about being human. I loved this book.” —Sara Gruen
Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?
Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…
Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely.
That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning.
All’s fair in love and football…Game on.
I’ve never been one to lust after guys. My mother’s revolving door of relationships doused any propensity I might have had long ago. But Lewis is six and a half feet of rugged mountain man, and he’s…eye-catching. Sexy. Silently brooding in all the best ways.
The more time I spend with him, the more naughty thoughts I have of us together, and he’s not helping put a stop to it. It’s infuriating.
I’m fantasizing and lusting, and I can’t remember why I wanted to stay away to begin with.
It turns out, Lewis might be the one man I can't resist.
But he carries his own relationship baggage. Baggage that could break me in ways no ex-boyfriend ever did.
This hot, romantic comedy will have you intermittently fanning yourself and laughing at Lewis’s sexy approach at convincing Gen they’re right for each other. Grab Mountain Man now!
He tugs down his shorts—and goes completely naked.
He glances up. “You can stay in your panties. I’m getting clean… What? I trust you not to grope me.” He grins.

The number one distraction, though, is his boyfriend Lee. After the fox's mother joins a religious anti-gay group, Lee turns back to the gay activism of his college days. He pushes Dev to use his celebrity to reach out to gay youth, but only succeeds in starting bigger arguments. When their relationship faces its most difficult test, will their love for each other triumph?

His name is Rafaele Vestri, Rafe to his friends.
He’s tall, strong, handsome. Distant. He often comes to the coffee shop where I work, but we don’t talk much. He looks at me, though. Stares at me, his gaze heated, and I can’t help but stare back. I want him, I won’t deny it. I’ve never seen anyone that beautiful, anyone that powerful, in my life.
But he’s growing more withdrawn by the day. Something’s up, and he won’t tell. I know about his past—the murder of his family when he was fifteen. I can imagine how much it must have cost him. So much violence contained in that strong body, waiting to be unleashed. What is he seeking? What is he training so hard for? Why is he looking at me like he’s dying to touch me, but won’t dare?
Even as I try to stop thinking about him, get interested in other boys, I realize I can’t. I’m caught, body and soul, just like that. And I tell myself, Megan, girl… What have you gotten yourself into this time?
Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.
Almost three years ago, a car crash took Audrey's dad and scarred her for life. Now eighteen, she returns to her hometown for the first time after the accident.
She's here to start again. Go to college and have fun. Make new friends. Get over the past.
But the past won't let go.
Asher is here-her first kiss, her first heartbreak. More handsome and distant than ever, he's still the boy who used to be her best friend. That was before he changed into someone she hardly knows anymore-the boy who started getting into fights and gave her the cold shoulder for years.
Asher isn't what she needs. In fact, she hates him and should try her best to keep away from him.
Yet her body doesn't seem to care about how she feels, and maybe, just maybe this time her body got it right. Not that she has much of a choice. Asher draws her like a bright flame, and if she isn't careful, she'll burn.
And that may not be such a bad thing after all...
Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.
*A new adult contemporary sexy romance with suspense, bad boys and illegal MMA fighters*
What do you do when you’ve just lost everything?
For four years, I’ve been punching and kicking my way through hundreds of unworthy MMA opponents.
For four years, I’ve kept seeing her face. Maddie’s face. My one great love.
After a brutal cage match that sent me to the ER, Maddie took off across the country. Six months pregnant. She left to have my baby as far from me as she could. No more violence, she said. No fighting.
I had to live with it. I had no choice.
But last night I got a phone call from my little girl, asking me to come to her fourth birthday party. Her friends all have daddies, she said. Would I be hers?
Damn right I will.
I decide that when I get to New York, I’m not going to care about Maddie. I’m not going to even look at her.
But I do. And the moment I see her again, I know one thing is true.
This ain’t over.
