Quand Flora croise Sacha pour la première fois, elle est trempée, stressée, et en retard à un entretien !
La deuxième fois, elle découvre qu’il est son nouveau patron.
Brillant et mystérieux, Sacha souffle le chaud et le froid… jusqu’à la nuit où ils cèdent à la passion.
Une nuit, une merveilleuse erreur, et tout bascule.
À quel point Flora peut-elle se fier à un homme qui ne dit rien de lui mais semble en savoir beaucoup sur elle ?
– Je n’arrivais pas à dormir, dis-je, nerveuse. Il fallait que je sorte.
– Vous avez eu raison, se contente-t-il de me répondre.
Je secoue la tête et pousse un soupir de soulagement quand enfin l’ascenseur arrive à notre étage. La torture est bientôt finie. Alexeï me laisse passer devant. Dans quelques secondes, je serai de nouveau seule dans ma chambre. Loin de lui. Et mon corps sera bien obligé de se calmer !
– Bonne nuit, murmuré-je devant ma porte.
Je fouille les poches de mon peignoir, fébrilement. Mais je ne trouve que le vide.
– Oh non ! soufflé-je
– Un problème ? me demande Alexeï sur le point de rentrer.
– Ma carte a dû tomber à la piscine, je vais redescendre.
Au moment où je passe devant lui pour faire le chemin inverse, il m’arrête en m’attrapant par la main.
– Il est tard, on s’occupera de ça demain. Passez par la porte communicante, ce sera plus simple.
Entrer dans sa chambre… Le sort se joue de moi.
Je file presque comme une voleuse vers mon refuge.
Mais quand je tourne la poignée, rien ne se passe.
– J’ai mis le verrou…
Je me retourne pour m’appuyer sur la porte, les yeux vers le plafond, soupirant de désespoir. Alexeï est déjà près de moi à essayer lui aussi d’ouvrir cette satanée porte.
– Je pourrais croire que vous faites tout pour passer la nuit avec moi, plaisante-t-il doucement.
Son regard m’hypnotise. La teinte bleue de ses yeux a pris un ton plus sombre…
Est-ce qu’il est possible que le bleu polaire puisse cohabiter avec les flammes ?
– Je vais redescendre pour récup…
Mais Alexeï ne me laisse pas faire un geste, pas un mouvement. Il se tient devant moi à présent, me dominant de toute sa taille, les lèvres légèrement entrouvertes.
– Ou tu peux rester là.
Sa bouche fond sur la mienne, dans un baiser puissant, sauvage. Et bien sûr, je lui réponds, sans retenue, sans pudeur. Tout ce que j’ai imaginé arrive, brutalement. J’en appelle une dernière fois à ma raison… Aux abonnées absentes.
Plongez dans l’univers de Megan Harold.
Breaking the Rules, est la réédition du roman Always you.
But their courage will attract the notice of powerful allies, from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy... and once Lewis is elected chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, this 23-year-old will be thrust into the national spotlight, becoming one of the "Big Six" leaders of the civil rights movement and a central figure in the landmark 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
En raison du manque de soldats, Hitler appelle sous les drapeaux tous les hommes disponibles. Les criminels, prisonniers politiques et déserteurs sont amnistiés et envoyés au front. Ils sont tous réunis dans un bataillon de marche et ils sont affectés aux missions les plus pénibles. L'obéissance aveugle est ce qu'il y a de plus dur. Bien plus de vingt fois par jour, on leur rappelle, entre malédictions et instructions prussiennes, qu'ils font partie d'un régiment disciplinaire et qu'ils seront les meilleurs soldats du monde. Le Régiment blindé no 27 est obligé de lutter dans une guerre qui n'inspire la confiance à aucun de ses soldats.
Sven Hassel a été envoyé dans un bataillon de marche en tant que simple soldat de l'armée allemande. Avec un réalisme proche et brutal, il relate les atrocités de la guerre, les crimes des nazis et l'humour cynique et grossier des soldats. Des ventes qui dépassent les 50 millions d'exemplaires font de ses livres de guerre les plus vendus au monde.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

"Layla Saad moves her readers from their heads into their hearts, and ultimately, into their practice. We won't end white supremacy through an intellectual understanding alone; we must put that understanding into action."—Robin DiAngelo, author of New York Times bestseller White Fragility
The House Girl, the historical fiction debut by Tara Conklin, is an unforgettable story of love, history, and a search for justice, set in modern-day New York and 1852 Virginia.
Two remarkable women, separated by more than a century, whose lives unexpectedly intertwine . . .
2004: Lina Sparrow is an ambitious young lawyer working on a historic class-action lawsuit seeking reparations for the descendants of American slaves.
1852: Josephine is a seventeen-year-old house slave who tends to the mistress of a Virginia tobacco farm—an aspiring artist named Lu Anne Bell.
It is through her father, renowned artist Oscar Sparrow, that Lina discovers a controversy rocking the art world: art historians now suspect that the revered paintings of Lu Anne Bell, an antebellum artist known for her humanizing portraits of the slaves who worked her Virginia tobacco farm, were actually the work of her house slave, Josephine.
A descendant of Josephine's would be the perfect face for the lawsuit—if Lina can find one. But nothing is known about Josephine's fate following Lu Anne Bell's death in 1852. In piecing together Josephine's story, Lina embarks on a journey that will lead her to question her own life, including the full story of her mother's mysterious death twenty years before.
Alternating between antebellum Virginia and modern-day New York, this searing tale of art and history, love and secrets explores what it means to repair a wrong, and asks whether truth can be more important than justice. Featuring two remarkable, unforgettable heroines, Tara Conklin's The House Girl is riveting and powerful, literary fiction at its very best.
In this enthralling historical epic, set in New York City and the Middle East in the years leading to World War I— the long-awaited follow-up to the acclaimed New York Times bestseller The Golem and the Jinni—Helene Wecker revisits her beloved characters Chava and Ahmad as they confront unexpected new challenges in a rapidly changing human world.
Chava is a golem, a woman made of clay, who can hear the thoughts and longings of those around her and feels compelled by her nature to help them. Ahmad is a jinni, a restless creature of fire, once free to roam the desert but now imprisoned in the shape of a man. Fearing they’ll be exposed as monsters, these magical beings hide their true selves and try to pass as human—just two more immigrants in the bustling world of 1900s Manhattan. Brought together under calamitous circumstances, their lives are now entwined—but they’re not yet certain of what they mean to each other.
Both Chava and Ahmad have changed the lives of the people around them. Park Avenue heiress Sophia Winston, whose brief encounter with Ahmad left her with a strange illness that makes her shiver with cold, travels to the Middle East to seek a cure. There she meets Dima, a tempestuous female jinni who’s been banished from her tribe. Back in New York, in a tenement on the Lower East Side, a little girl named Kreindel helps her rabbi father build a golem they name Yossele—not knowing that she’s about to be sent to an orphanage uptown, where the hulking Yossele will become her only friend and protector.
Spanning the tumultuous years from the turn of the twentieth century to the beginning of World War I, The Hidden Palace follows these lives and others as they collide and interleave. Can Chava and Ahmad find their places in the human world while remaining true to each other? Or will their opposing natures and desires eventually tear them apart—especially once they encounter, thrillingly, other beings like themselves?

This oversized, beautifully produced collectible volume contains a wealth of new material—poetry, writings, lyrics, and audio transcripts of Morrison reading his work. Not only the most comprehensive book of Morrison’s work ever published, it is immersive, giving readers insight to the creative process of and offering access to the musings and observations of an artist whom the poet Michael McClure called “one of the finest, clearest spirits of our times.”

Three months ago, Lena Nguyen’s estranged twin sister, Cambry, drove to a remote bridge seventy miles outside of Missoula, Montana, and jumped two hundred feet to her death. At least, that is the official police version.
But Lena isn’t buying it.
Now she’s come to that very bridge, driving her dead twin’s car and armed with a cassette recorder, determined to find out what really happened by interviewing the highway patrolman who allegedly discovered her sister’s body.
Corporal Raymond Raycevic has agreed to meet Lena at the scene. He is sympathetic, forthright, and professional. But his story still seems a bit off. For one thing, he stopped Cambry for speeding just an hour before she supposedly leaped to her death. Then there are the sixteen attempted 911 calls from her cell phone, made in what was unfortunately a dead zone.
But perhaps most troubling of all, the state trooper is referred to by name in Cambry’s final enigmatic text to her sister: Please Forgive Me. Lena will do anything to uncover the truth. But as her twin’s final hours come into focus, Lena’s search turns into a harrowing tooth-and-nail fight for her own survival—one that will test everything she thought she knew about her sister and herself...
