Don Giovanni was once the wealthiest and handsomest young man in Messina. Then a tidal wave changed everything. When a well-dressed stranger offers him a magical purse, he knows he shouldn't take it. Only the devil would offer a deal like this, and only a fool would accept. Don Giovanni is no fool, but he is desperate. He takes the bet: he will not bathe for 3 years, 3 months, and 3 days. Beauty is a small price to pay for worldly wealth, isn't it? Unless he loses the wager—and with it his soul. Set against the stunning backdrop of ancient Sicily, Donna Jo Napoli's new novel is a powerful tale about discovering what truly matters most.

A reckless bet in a New York club draws Kek Huuygens into a deadly game As rain pummels Manhattan, two men play blackjack in one of New York’s most exclusive clubs. After an evening of comfortable low-stakes play, Kek Huuygens makes an outlandish bet: $10,000 on the next hand. He can afford it. The most accomplished smuggler in Europe, Huuygens never makes a bet unless he is sure to win. He is a lucky man, but his luck is about to be tested. In the shadows, Victor Girard—a French gangster who gambles not just with money, but with people’s lives as well—watches him place the bet. Like his opponent, Girard prefers sure things. He knows Huuygens’ reputation, and offers him $50,000 to bring a certain priceless item through United States customs. Huuygens has made a career humiliating border agents, but he will find that Americans are not so easy to fleece—and that this is a wager that he cannot afford to lose.

The Wager traces the events which take place in a tough comprehensive school, on a day to day basis, throughout one academic year. Simon Brown, the school’s cynical head of science, discovers that the school is overstaffed and that some teachers are to be made redundant at the end of the year. He realises that he and his best friend, Wilson, are the prime candidates for the push. Rather than informing his friend of the situation, he keeps the information to himself and secretly tries to ingratiate himself with the school’s new head-teacher. The Wager tracks Simon’s attempts to save his own job – at his friend’s expense. Besides being a cynic, Simon is also a gambler. He and Wilson make a wager as to whether their new head teacher will survive the year. Their new head turns out to be a disastrous appointment, wholly without charisma and alienated from pupils and teachers alike. As staff morale deteriorates and the behaviour of students worsens, the ethos of the school begins to decline. Throughout the turmoil, Simon delivers his acerbic views on events which unfold around him. Due to his gambling, Simon's wife decides to leave him. Not one to get depressed over such a triviality, he decides to pursue an attractive young maths teacher by the name of Sophie Lawrence and strange events start to occur in Simon’s life, both at home and at work...A laugh-out-loud novel packed with twists and turns, The Wager will appeal to fans of comic fiction – we bet it will make you chuckle. Edwin is inspired by J. D. Salinger, Joseph Heller and Ken Kesey.

London, 1818. Anne Middleton never plays by the rules. She is willful when she should be obedient and unabashed when she should be decorous. Worse still, she can never resist a good wager... or a naughty book. And Confessions of a Courtesan is about as sensational and risque as a book can be. Michael Grey - Earl of Thornhill - had once courted Anne's sweet sister. But while Anne is certainly no lady of decorum, her bold impulsiveness slips through his armor, and propriety is forgotten. Now he too is immersed in the book of forbidden delights, where each page is an invitation to sin and a guide to pleasures unknown... Roused by heady desire, Michael tempts Anne in a way she cannot resist: a wager. Thus begins a game of chance, where coins have been replaced by a currency that is far more illicit. And the stakes of seduction are dangerous indeed... The Sisters of Scandal series is best enjoyed in order.

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, THE BET THE WAGER Lose a bet, lose your heart... What is it about a junior-high crush that can send an otherwise intelligent woman into a tailspin? TV reporter Char Lynn wishes she knew. Jake Titus is too rich, too handsome, too arrogant: a trifecta that once lured Char into the best night-and worst morning-after-of her life. Now they've been thrown together in a wedding party.

Cue meet-cute shenanigans and all manner of meddling, and somehow, Jake's falling. For Char. Now all he has to do is make her believe it . . . 85,000 words
