Secret Acquisitions by Raleigh Davis Summary

A second chance with the billionaire who got away… January: I need a billionaire. Fast. When I stumble onto a tech giant’s plot to spy on everyone’s phones, I know my security company is only one who can stop them. But my little start up needs money. Lots of it. Enter Mark Taylor, the hottest venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. And the only billionaire I know on a personal level. And the guy I reluctantly turned down in college. I’m in his office and ready to beg… but he’s not the forgive and forget type. Mark: I never hear the word no. Not since I remade myself from a skinny nerd into the deal making playboy of Bastard Capital. January was the last woman to tell me no—and the one woman I can’t forget. She’s as enticing as ever, so I offer her a deal: I say yes to her in the boardroom and she says yes to me in the bedroom. A quick, scorching affair is exactly what I need to get her out of my system. But when a shadowy conspiracy threatens her company—and the privacy of everybody—all my protective instincts flare to life. And this quick affair is suddenly much deeper than we’d ever expected… Enter the world of Bastard Capital: Unrivaled men. Unimaginable wealth. Unlimited power. Binge read the complete series now!

Unfinished Seductions by Raleigh Davis Summary

A billionaire husband and the estranged wife he never stopped loving… Callie: I only ever wanted to be the perfect wife. To prove to myself and a short-term world that Logan and I had a forever love. I was wrong. The harder I tried to be flawless, the farther apart we grew, until I never saw my husband. At least not at home—but definitely in the pages of gossip rags with beautiful women in his orbit, like in his playboy bachelor days. So I ran before my heart could break completely. But Logan’s found me… and he refuses to let me disappear again. Logan: I only ever wanted to be the perfect husband. To prove I could succeed where my dad hadn’t and provide my wife with everything she could ever want. I failed. The harder I worked, the more I made, the more I gave to her, the farther away Callie drifted. Until one day she was gone and my entire world went black. But I never stopped searching for her. When I find her, we reignite the passion between us—and uncover a whisper campaign to destroy our marriage. Finding who’s responsible and making them pay will be the easy part. Convincing Callie to give our marriage a second chance… that will be hardest fight of my life. Enter the world of Bastard Capital: Unrivaled men. Unimaginable wealth. Unlimited power.

The Kent Family Chronicles Volumes One Through Three by John Jakes Summary

The first three novels in a sweeping American epic from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author who “makes history come alive” (Nelson DeMille). This multigenerational saga follows the Kent family and their pursuit of a foothold and future in the expanding United States. From the family’s initial journey traveling to America’s shore to their voyage to the Western frontier, their fate is intertwined with the course of American history in these first three volumes of the series. The Bastard: Denied his birthright as the illegitimate son of the Duke of Kentland, Philippe Charboneau seeks a new life in London, where he meets Benjamin Franklin and reads the works of patriot firebrand Sam Adams. Inspired by such brave new ideas, he travels to the American colonies at the brink of the Revolution. There he will choose his own name—Philip Kent—and finally decide his own fate. The Rebels: Philip Kent fights as a Continental soldier at the Battle of Bunker Hill. In a bold move, he has taken up arms for the future of his new family. Spirited and unwavering in his dedication to his adopted homeland, Philip fights in the most violent battles in America’s early history. But far from the front lines, another battle rages that will sweep his wife, Anne, on her own perilous journey that may destroy all Philip has fought for. The Seekers: Returning from fighting valiantly on the frontier, Abraham Kent—son of Philip and Anne—returns to Boston, only to realize that he cannot abide the confines of civilization. Determined not to live in his father’s shadow, he takes his young bride and settles on the American frontier. But the life of a pioneer comes at a high price, and the cost of Abraham’s restless ambitions may be more than he can bear.

The Complete Hammer's Slammers: Volume 1 by David Drake Summary

With a veteran's eye for the harsh and gritty details of war, David Drake depicts a futuristic analog of tank combat in his Hammer's Slammers fiction. The Slammers are neither cartoon heroes nor propaganda villains; rather they are competent professionals engaged in a deadly business. The inevitable conflicts between policy, necessity, and human nature make Drake's Slammers fiction instantly identifiable and utterly compelling. This is the first of a three volume set presenting for the first time the entire genre-defining Slammers series in a uniform trade paperback set, with new introductions by major SF figures and new afterwords by David Drake. Each volume will also include a Slammers story not collected in previous Slammer's books. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). "Fans of Drake's edgy stories of a mercenary tank regiment in a future not all that different from our present will rejoice [at the publication of] the entire series in three volumes. Drake, a Vietnam vet who served in the Blackhorse Regiment, uses prose as cold and hard as the metal alloy of a tank to portray the men and women of Hammer's Regiment. . . . In his depiction of combat, Drake rivals Crane and Remarque." ¾Publishers Weekly, reviewing the Night Shade hardcover edition

The Last Lion: Volume 1 by William Manchester Summary

The first volume in William Manchester's masterful, magnum opus account of Winston Churchill's life. The Last Lion: Visions of Glory follows the first fifty-eight years of Churchill's life--the years that mold him into the man who will become one of the most influential politicians of the twentieth century. In this, the first volume, Manchester follows Churchill from his birth to 1932, when he began to warn against the re-militarization of Germany. Born of an American mother and the gifted but unstable son of a duke, his childhood was one of wretched neglect. He sought glory on the battlefields of Cuba, Sudan, India, South Africa and the trenches of France. In Parliament he was the prime force behind the creation of Iraq and Jordan, laid the groundwork for the birth of Israel, and negotiated the independence of the Irish Free State. Yet, as Chancellor of the Exchequer he plunged England into economic crisis, and his fruitless attempt to suppress Gandhi's quest for Indian independence brought political chaos to Britain. Throughout, Churchill learned the lessons that would prepare him for the storm to come, and as the 1930's began, he readied himself for the coming battle against Nazism--an evil the world had never before seen.

Intimate Mergers by Raleigh Davis Summary

A billionaire prince and the fake engagement that feels all too real… Grace: When I landed a job at a big-name tech company, it was like winning a golden ticket. At least until I uncovered a massive conspiracy and my golden ticket became a golden cage. Now I’m jobless and about to be deported. Imagine my surprise when Paul, the handsome Prince Charming of Bastard Capital, comes riding to my rescue. But then his mom, the Ice Queen, sweeps in and we’re suddenly pretending to be engaged. And my ex-employer acts like a big, bad troll and Paul saves me again. Fairy tales aren’t real, and I’m not princess, but Paul’s got me believing in the impossible… Paul: I’m a Bastard—the well bred, old money one. So when my mother shows up with an engagement ring and her unlucky choice of bride in tow, I don’t tell her to get lost. Instead, I spin a white lie about the wonderful woman I’m already engaged to. Grace is only too happy to take the deal—she fakes being in love and I set her up like royalty back home. She’s the perfect pretend fiancée: gracious, canny, and leaving very soon. But Grace turns out to be more than just an easy solution, with her sarcastic one liners, love of pro wrestling, and scorching hot kisses.

Competitive Instincts by Raleigh Davis Summary

A bad boy billionaire with a quicksilver mind and a secret heart of gold… Ramona (aka Doc): I’ve got troubles: a wrongly convicted brother, an empty bank account, and a hopeless crusade I can’t abandon. Finn, the bad boy of Bastard Capital, is smoking hot, amazingly funny, and dead brilliant—and trouble with a capital T. Exactly what I don’t need. Except I can’t stop thinking about his massive… brain and his nimble… wit. But Mr. Trouble is also the world’s greatest hacker and the only person who can access the evidence of my brother’s innocence. I’ll do anything for that, including tangling with a man who might snare my heart forever. Finn: Doc’s got a smart mouth, a stunning body, and a fantastically sharp mind. She’d be the perfect woman, except for the fact that we have explosive chemistry and she refuses to act on it. When I unearth proof that her brother was set up, it’s the perfect excuse to get closer. I’m going to prove my brand of bad is oh so good for her. After a few (slightly illegal) break ins and some (super illegal) data theft, it becomes clear we’re up against an old enemy. And I’m terrified I’m not strong enough to fight him and hold onto Doc at the same time… Enter the world of Bastard Capital: Unrivaled men. Unimaginable wealth. Unlimited power.

Hostile Attractions by Raleigh Davis Summary

A hard-ass billionaire and the enemy he won’t trust—but can’t resist… Minerva: I’m utterly lost. I’ve been so deep undercover for so long that when I escape with evidence of my boss’s crimes, there’s no one to turn to. Except for him: Elliot Martell. My worst enemy and the last person who’d hide me. Which makes him the perfect cover, and when he sees what I’ve got on my boss, he’ll have to help me. But it turns out Elliot is so tightly wound he doesn’t know who he is either. And if my employer doesn’t disappear me first, we might find ourselves together. Elliot: I’d do anything to protect my brothers—both my blood brother and the ones I’ve made at Bastard Capital. If that makes me a hard ass, so be it. When Minerva shows up on my doorstep, claiming to hold the key to bringing down our nemesis, my first instinct is to throw her out. My second is to drag her to my bed. Instead, I clamp down on all of it, because if she’s telling the truth, I need her. And it’s not like I’m going to sleep with the enemy. But as she reveals more about her mission, trusting me to keep her secrets safe, I realize she’s not my enemy. In fact, she might become my everything… Enter the world of Bastard Capital: Unrivaled men. Unimaginable wealth. Unlimited power. Binge read the complete series now!

Patronages et clientélismes 1550-1750 (France, Angleterre, Espagne, Italie) by Roger Mettam Summary

Lorsqu’au printemps 1989 Roger Mettam et moi-même envisagions d’organiser un débat sur l’état de la recherche historique en France et en GrandeBretagne, il nous est vite apparu qu’une des interrogations nouvelles les plus fécondes portait sur le patronage et le clientélisme dans le fonctionnement des deux monarchies à l’époque moderne. Qu’un nombre croissant d’historiens consacrent leurs travaux à des pays autres que le leur (dira-t-on suffisamment l’apport des chercheurs anglo-saxons au renouvellement de l’étude de la France d’Ancien Régime ces vingt dernières années) n’en rendait que plus intéressante une rencontre sur ce thème entre spécialistes européens.Né de ce constat, le colloque de mai 1990 affichait une triple ambition : réfléchir sur les concepts de patronage et de clientélisme, de préférence dans des structures peu étudiées de ce point de vue ; cerner leurs éventuelles évolutions sur une période chronologique longue ; comparer la réalité de ces notions dans plusieurs États européens.

Les Cendres d'Angela (N. éd.) by Frank MCCOURT Summary

Il y a tout juste vingt ans, la France tombait sous le charme des Cendres d'Angela, mémoires d'une enfance irlandaise drôles, tendres et sans rancune, portés par une langue et un souffle romanesque remarquables. Véritable phénomène littéraire mondial, lauréat du prix Pulitzer 1997, un récit sur l'immigration, la pauvreté et la conquête des possibles, une œuvre devenue culte, à (re)découvrir. Difficile de croire que Les Cendres d'Angela aient déjà vingt ans, pourtant le livre de Frank McCourt a mieux vieilli que la plupart de ceux de la même époque, du fait notamment qu'il n'a rien perdu de sa justesse. Il est peut-être plus pertinent que jamais. L'autobiographie de McCourt a touché la France au cœur, réussi à faire rire ses lecteurs même en ce qu'elle recèle de plus sombre. Aujourd'hui, en 2017, elle est capable d'apporter un éclairage particulier sur notre situation, guère plus réjouissante. C'est, à la base, l'histoire d'un immigré, confronté à la pauvreté, à la solitude, à l'oppression, mais également le récit d'une lutte contre le pouvoir, d'une conquête des possibles, qui passe en revue les thèmes de la foi, de l'adhésion à une communauté, de l'isolement. Deux décennies plus tard, tout est encore là : la violence, l'exil, la privation, le besoin. Imaginez que vous apportiez un exemplaire du livre dans les tours de Saint-Denis, que vous le lisiez sur les quais de Marseille, que vous en discutiez dans la jungle de Calais avec les réfugiés. Leur propre histoire commence de la même façon. Nous ignorons seulement si elle connaîtra un dénouement analogue. Extrait de la préface de Colum McCann

Arabian Nights, in 16 volumes by N.A Summary

Notorious for the delight he took in tweaking the sexual taboos of the Victorian age-as well as the delight he took in the resulting shock of his bashful peers-British adventurer, linguist, and author CAPTAIN SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON (1821-1890) is perhaps best remembered for his unexpurgated translation of the Eastern classic The One Thousand and One Nights, more famously known today as The Arabian Nights. Originating in Persian, Indian, and Arabic sources as far back as the ninth century AD, this collection of bawdy tales-which Burton was the first to bring to English readers in uncensored form-has exerted incalculable influence on modern literature. It represents one of the earliest examples of a framing story, as young Shahrazad, under threat of execution by the King, postpones her death by regaling him with these wildly entertaining stories over the course of 1,001 nights. The stories themselves feature early instances of sexual humor, satire and parody, murder mystery, horror, and even science fiction. Burton's annotated 16-volume collection, as infamous as it is important, was first published between 1885 and 1888, and remains an entertainingly naughty read. Volume XIV-the fourth volume of Burton's Supplemental Nights-includes: [ "Story of the Sultan of Al-Yaman and His Three Sons" [ "History of Mohammed, Sultan of Cairo" [ "Story of the Sage and the Scholar" [ "History of the Kazi Who Bare a Babe" [ "Tale of the Sultan and His Sons and the Enchanting Bird" [ "History of Abu Niyyah and Abu Niyyatayn" [ and more.

Naissance d'un pont by Maylis de Kerangal Summary

À l’aube du second jour, quand soudain les buildings de Coca montent, perpendiculaires à la surface du fleuve, c’est un autre homme qui sort des bois, c’est un homme hors de lui, c’est un meurtrier en puissance. Le soleil se lève, il ricoche contre les façades de verre et d’acier, irise les nappes d’hydrocarbures moirées arc-en-ciel qui auréolent les eaux, et les plaques de métal taillées en triangle qui festonnent le bordé de la pirogue, rutilant dans la lumière, dessinent une mâchoire ouverte. Ce livre part d’une ambition à la fois simple et folle : raconter la construction d’un pont suspendu quelque part dans une Californie imaginaire à partir des destins croisés d’une dizaine d’hommes et femmes, tous employés du gigantesque chantier. Un roman-fleuve, à l’américaine, qui brasse des sensations et des rêves, des paysages et des machines, des plans de carrière et des classes sociales, des corps de métiers et des corps tout court.

Heartland by Sarah Smarsh Summary

Cinquième génération d’agriculteurs des grandes plaines du Kansas côté paternel, et énième génération de mères-adolescentes côté maternel, la journaliste Sarah Smarsh fait le récit de son enfance passée, pendant les années 1980 et 1990, dans une ferme à des dizaines de kilomètres de la ville la plus proche, Wichita. Par la description méticuleuse de sa vie quotidienne, les portraits qu’elle brosse des membres de sa famille et la manière dont elle envisage plus généralement la situation de son pays, l’auteur livre un regard d’une lucidité rare sur la vie des travailleurs pauvres de cette Amérique, ce cœur du pays fait de plaines infinies que les Américains appellent Heartland. Avec clarté, précision, compassion, Sarah Smarsh nous emmène au plus près de la classe ouvrière pauvre, une classe constituée d’hommes et de femmes que l’Amérique a appris à considérer comme valant moins parce que gagnant moins, une classe à laquelle son pays a inculqué la honte d’elle-même.
