"Elsie?" the dust settled, and she took a deep breath, gathering her anger around her. Carefully, trying not to let her limp show, she turned toward the now famous natural horsemanship trainer. The Lakota cowboy, Corbin Darkhorse, and the very first man she had ever loved, stood watching her. He was even more handsome than she remembered: dark hair, dark eyes, with long-fingered hands weathered by the sun and wind. She swallowed a mouthful of dirty words and wondered why he had to be here, on this day, as she picked up her mustang for the competition.

Forgiveness had never been one of Elsie Rosewood's strengths, and Corbin could see she hadn't changed over the last ten years. In fact, she looked as wild, angry and stubborn as the mustang pacing in the corral behind her. His mind filled abruptly with the old image of Elsie's face bloodied, as a previous wild horse threw her to the ground and trampled her limp body. Ten years was a long time to run, and Corbin knew if he ever wanted to have peace, and the trust of the only woman he'd ever loved, then he would have to prove how much he had changed.

The only thing standing in the way of a once- in-a-lifetime love is a Mustang Training Competition, $100,000, and a past neither forgotten nor forgiven.

Single males in need of a bride for a day? This is strictly an at your service business proposition. . . Do you need the eyes of a woman to help plan and/or set up an event with your personal interest and taste in mind, but with an added touch of your bride—if you had one—then call Bride for Hire and let me do the work…
 
Jilted twice Bella Reese has no plans to find out if three’s the magic number. She’s done with men. But she’s always loved the idea of being a bride, setting up house, planning parties making sure things are pretty and homey-the perfect nest for a home…and she’s determined not to give up on that dream. Six months after her final wedding fiasco she’s turned a new leaf and opened her business, Bride For Hire. So far she’s been amazingly busy with corporate events with no “homey” entering the equation. Until now…

After being jilted by his ex, Rancher Carson Anderson will never make the marriage mistake again. But now his daughter is turning four and he wants to make her fourth birthday special and redecorate his ranch house to make it more “homey” for a growing little girl. The irony of his situation is he lives on the outskirts of Bride Texas the legendary home of the jilted bride…a small town south of Fort Worth.

When his cousin Cooper Presley shows him the ad from a Fort Worth newspaper it’s everything he’s looking for—even the plainly stated—absolutely no romance involved. Carson makes the call.

It sounds like the perfect plan until he meets Bella.

NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER 

Tommy Orange’s “groundbreaking, extraordinary” (The New York Times) There There is the “brilliant, propulsive” (People Magazine) story of twelve unforgettable characters, Urban Indians living in Oakland, California, who converge and collide on one fateful day. It’s “the year’s most galvanizing debut novel” (Entertainment Weekly).
 
As we learn the reasons that each person is attending the Big Oakland Powwow—some generous, some fearful, some joyful, some violent—momentum builds toward a shocking yet inevitable conclusion that changes everything. Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame. Dene Oxendene is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death and has come to work at the powwow to honor his uncle’s memory. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil, who has taught himself traditional Indian dance through YouTube videos and will to perform in public for the very first time. There will be glorious communion, and a spectacle of sacred tradition and pageantry. And there will be sacrifice, and heroism, and loss.
 
There There is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen. It’s “masterful . . . white-hot . . . devastating” (The Washington Post) at the same time as it is fierce, funny, suspenseful, thoroughly modern, and impossible to put down. Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it’s destined to be a classic.
