Lynne Huffer's ambitious inquiry redresses the rift between feminist and queer theory, traversing the space of a new, post-moral sexual ethics that includes pleasure, desire, connection, and betrayal. She begins by balancing queer theorists' politics of sexual freedoms with a moralizing feminist politics that views sexuality as harm. Drawing on the best insights from both traditions, she builds an ethics centered on eros, following Michel Foucault's ethics as a practice of freedom and Luce Irigaray's lyrical articulation of an ethics of sexual difference. Through this theoretical lens, Huffer examines everyday experiences of ethical connection and failure connected to sex, including queer sexual practices, sodomy laws, interracial love, pornography, and work-life balance. Her approach complicates sexual identities while challenging the epistemological foundations of subjectivity. She rethinks ethics "beyond good and evil" without underestimating, as some queer theorists have done, the persistence of what Foucault calls the "catastrophe" of morality. Elaborating a thinking-feeling ethics of the other, Huffer encourages contemporary intellectuals to reshape sexual morality from within, defining an ethical space that is both poetically suggestive and politically relevant, both conceptually daring and grounded in common sexual experience.

Although Julianna is an intelligent, independent seventeen-year-old, she finds herself alone and very overwhelmed by the changes in her life. Blake is the rugged high school coach who has worked closely with Julianna and her father on the farm over the past three summers. As Blake helps Julianna through this transition, their feelings for each other become too strong to ignore. They did not mean to fall in love. There were so many reasons why it was a bad idea, but life had thrown them together for reasons beyond their control.

When Blake is offered the coaching position of a lifetime in Tennessee, Julianna finds herself alone trying to save her plantation from financial ruin.

As Julianna realizes that Jackson is falling in love with her, she decides to use him to save her plantation and herself. Juliannas choices prove to be detrimental as she spirals downward after the loss of her son. When things start to fall apart between her and Jackson, Julianna is involved in a near fatal car accident followed by months of hospitalization and rehabilitation. When Julianna and Jackson decide to go their separate ways, Julianna begins her new life in a new town, but her past catches up with her, and she discovers how her decisions nearly ruined her life and the only chance at true love she would ever have.

Just because Grave Witch Alex Craft can speak to the dead, doesn't mean she has to like what they have to say . . . As a private investigator and consultant for the police, Alex has seen a lot of dark magic. But even though she's on good terms with Death himself, nothing has prepared her for her latest case. Alex is investigating a high-profile murder when she's attacked by the ghost she is raising - which should be impossible. Then, someone makes a serious attempt on her life, thwarted only by Death's intervention. You know you're having a bad day when Death is saving your life . . . To solve this case, Alex will have to team up with tough homicide detective Falin Andrews. Andrews seems to be hiding something, although it's certainly not his dislike of Alex. Despite all that, Alex is going to need his help to navigate the tangled webs of real-world and paranormal politics, and to track down a killer wielding a magic so malevolent, it may cost Alex not just her life, but also her soul . . .

For fans of the contemporary urban fantasy series of Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Chloe Neill and Karen Chance, Kalayna Price brings us Grave Memory, the third novel in the Alex Craft series about a kick-ass grave witch who can communicate with the dead. When the dead need to talk, Alex Craft is always ready to listen . . . As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead - an ability that comes at a cost, and after her last few cases, that cost is compounding. But her magic isn't the only thing causing havoc in her life. While she's always been on friendly terms with Death himself, things have recently become a whole lot more close and personal. Then there's her sometime partner, agent Falin Andrews, who is under the glamour of the Winter Queen. To top everything off, her best friend has been forever changed by her time spent captive in Faerie. But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a string of suicides occur in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shades have no memory of the days leading up to their brutal endings, so despite the very public apparent suicides, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why do the shades lack the memory of their deaths? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won't have a life to remember at all . . . Grave Memory is the devilishly brilliant sequel to Grave Witch and Grave Dance, and not to be missed. Praise for Kalayna Price 'Yum. A rare treat, intriguing and original.

"Let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave." These ominous words, slashed from the pages of a book of Psalms, are the last threat that the darling of London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives from his killer. Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home, in the presence of his wife, Julia, and a roomful of dinner guests. Prepared to accept that Edward's death was due to a longstanding physical infirmity, Julia is outraged when Brisbane visits and suggests that Sir Edward has been murdered. It is a reaction she comes to regret when she discovers the damning paper for herself, and realizes the truth. Determined to bring her husband's murderer to justice, Julia engages the enigmatic Brisbane to help her investigate Edward's demise. Dismissing his warnings that the investigation will be difficult, if not impossible, Julia presses forward, following a trail of clues that lead her to even more unpleasant truths, and ever closer to a killer who waits expectantly for her arrival.
