In an extraordinary debut novel, an escaped fugitive upends everything two siblings think they know about their family, their past, and themselves. When eleven-year-old Annie first started lying to her social worker, she had been taught by an expert: Gran. “If you’re going to do something, make sure you do it with excellence,” Gran would say. That was when Gran was feeling talkative, and not brooding for days in her room — like she did after telling Annie and her little brother, Rew, the one thing they know about their father: that he was killed in a fight with an angry man who was sent away. Annie tells stories, too, as she and Rew laze under the birches and oaks of Zebra Forest — stories about their father the pirate, or pilot, or secret agent. But then something shocking happens to unravel all their stories: a rattling at the back door, an escapee from the prison holding them hostage in their own home, four lives that will never be the same. Driven by suspense and psychological intrigue, Zebra Forest deftly portrays an unfolding standoff of truth against family secrets — and offers an affecting look at two resourceful, imaginative kids as they react and adapt to the hand they’ve been dealt. From ZEBRA FORESTWe called it the Zebra Forest because it looked like a zebra. Its trees were a mix of white birch and chocolate oak, and if you stood a little ways from it, like at our house looking across the back field that was our yard, you saw stripes, black and white, that went up into green. Gran never went out there except near dusk, when the shadows gathered. She didn’t like to be out in full sunlight usually, and told me once she didn’t like the lines the trees made. Gran was always saying stuff like that. Perfectly beautiful things — like a clean blue sky over the Zebra — made tears come to her eyes, and if I tried to get her to come outside with me, she’d duck her head and hurry upstairs to bed. But then it would be storming, lightning sizzling the tops of the trees, and she’d run round the house, cheerful, making us hot cocoa and frying up pancakes and warming us with old quilts. We had few rules in our house, but keeping out of the Zebra Forest in a storm was one of them.

Home from the war, a veteran finds that his battles have only just begun in this zany and irreverent satire from the author of Rally Round the Flag, Boys! Last seen gallivanting on a college campus in Barefoot Boy with Cheek, Asa Hearthrug traded in his varsity jacket for khaki and fought his way across the Pacific. Now he’s back in his hometown of Whistlestop, Minnesota, eager to share his war stories, but no one wants to listen—they’ve already seen the movies. Postwar America is a brave new plastic world, and Asa’s girlfriend dreams of settling down in a house made entirely of the synthetic material. To help make Lodestone La Toole’s fantasy a reality, Asa seeks his fortune in vitamin-infused cookie cutters, junkyard fan lamps, airplane fishing trips, and mobile culture emporiums. A failed capitalist, he flirts with communism but decides to rededicate himself to college instead. If only his professors didn’t expect every veteran to be a window-busting, wall-chewing, bloodthirsty maniac, he might actually get some studying done.

Only one woman can stop a Doomsday machine, menacing the earth from 50,000 feet… …and that’s Kiki Claymore! Daedalus. A top-secret drone program. Completely self-sufficient, it has been hijacked by a group of terrorists. They want to turn it into a flying nuclear bomb—aiming it right at New York City. Their leader? The most recent ex-boyfriend of a young woman named Kiki Claymore. She’s the latest recruit of Task Force Ten—an ultra secret group of NATO secret agents. Her mission: find her former lover and stop him at all costs. The only problem? None of her fellow spies trust her. Is she on a mission to stop the man who broke her heart? Or will she betray her NATO colleagues to keep her love alive? From faking her way through the red light district of Barcelona to a deadly shootout at mission control in Cape Canaveral—Kiki Claymore is on assignment to stop the only man she’s ever loved. Before he unleashes a holocaust that will kill millions. From Inside The Novel... This is where things got a bit weird. Meisner was still wearing a towel-Kiki saw Tatyana’s hand disappear under it. An instant later the man’s face shot up in agony: “AAAAhhhhhhhhhaaaaaa...what are you doing?” Tatyana had latched on to one of his more delicate parts. “You don’t like my technique?” she asked. “Uh-uh.” “We want to know,” said Tatyana, “who you’ve been ferrying.” Meisner squirmed. “What do you mean? I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Kiki saw Tatyana’s wrist make another twist. Kiki leaned down. She was face-to-face with the guy. “Look, I don’t like what she’s doing either, but this is going to go on until she gets what she wants. We know who you are, what you do, and we’ve been reading your e-mails for the last six weeks. We’ve got a pretty good picture of your activities, and your friends. We don’t care what you’re doing. We don’t want to have any contact with you, at all. But we’re looking for someone, who you escorted to the airport this morning. We know you don’t know his name. We just want to know where he was going.” Meisner was silent. Kiki leaned in and whispered. “She’s ripped them off before. Never on purpose. But accidents happen, you know. But that was in Minsk.”

"Nobody does it like Georgina Gentry" (Barbra Critiques). Now, the award-winning author of Comanche Cowboy and Cheyenne Song thrills readers once again with the unforgettable story of a love and wild and untamed as the American West. A BATTLE OF WILLS Spirited heiress Libbie Winters was horrified to find herself in the midst of an Apache rebellion—and amazed to discover that her captor, a virile half-breed scout named Cougar, was the same man who offered her his prized Apache Tears necklace a year before. And though she was promised in marriage to a vengeful Cavalry officer, Libbie could not forget her powerful attraction to the fearless Apache hero. A BLAZE OF PASSION Believing she had rejected his gift, Cougar's heart was hardened toward the haughty white girl he now held for ransom. Yet he could not deny the desire this flame-haired beauty aroused in him, or the love he longed to give her. He knew it was impossible to hold the fiery woman whose spirit was as free as his own—unless Libbie made the dangerous choice to embrace the passion burning between them. . . "You'll sing the praises of Cheyenne Song. It's Gentry's best book yet!" – Janelle Taylor

Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress. As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.

In this dazzling novel from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell, a beauty without means and a man without scruples strike a scandalous bargain that takes them into the heart of desire. . . No gentleman would guarantee a lady's safety in exchange for her virtue. But that is precisely why Cloud Ryder would never call himself a gentleman. He wants Emily Brockinger the moment he sets eyes on her, and volunteers to guide her and her ward through lawless Colorado territory--if she'll share his bed. Yet to his surprise, the delicate Boston blueblood has a grit and fire that thrill him as no woman ever has. . . Emily has no choice but to accept Cloud's terms, and no way to control her body's response to the virile, part-Cherokee drifter. The trail is strewn with obstacles, and the dangers only increase once they reach their destination. All his life, Cloud has shunned commitment, but now the only way to keep Emily safe is to open his heart--to the one woman with the passion and power to break it. . . "The superbly talented Howell never disappoints." --Romantic Times "The laughter mingles with the tears in any story from the talented pen of Hannah Howell. If you haven't read her before, start now!" --Affair de Coeur
