Found Life

One of the first Russian writers to make a name for herself on the Internet, Linor Goralik writes conversational short works that conjure the absurd in all its forms, reflecting post-Soviet life and daily universals. Her mastery of the minimal, including a wide range of experiments in different forms of micro-prose, is on full display in this collection of poems, stories, comics, a play, and an interview, here translated for the first time. In Found Life, speech, condensed to the extreme, captures a vivid picture of fleeting interactions in a quickly moving world. Goralik's works evoke an unconventional palette of moods and atmospheres—slight doubt, subtle sadness, vague unease—through accumulation of unexpected details and command over colloquial language. While calling up a range of voices, her works are marked by a distinct voice, simultaneously slightly naïve and deeply ironic. She is a keen observer of the female condition, recounting gendered tribulations with awareness and amusement. From spiritual rabbits and biblical zoos to poems about loss and comics about poetry, Goralik's colorful language and pervasive dark comedy capture the heights of ridiculousness and the depths of grief.

This hot, hilarious stand-alone will keep you wildly entertained! Welcome to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where shape-shifters, vampires, witches, and dragons live alongside humans. The town formed around the mysterious energy rift in the bayou, which helps keep the town's magic in balance. But lately the rift has been widening and destabilizing - threatening to send the town's magical population into chaos. Energy witch Danica Teel has been sent by the League to figure out what's going on, with the help of bear-shifter Mayor Zed. While working on the case, Zed falls head over paws for Dani, but she's reluctant to engage in anything beyond a roll in his cave. Dani's family is counting on her to get the job done, and she has no time for distractions. But when an ominous presence begins stalking Dani through the bayou, they'll need to band together to make it out alive. This book is based on the Audible Original audiobook. “I highly recommend this, flirty, hilarious in every scene and has a sexy hero that you want to keep for your own and a heroine that can fight her own battles!! I am hooked on the Mystic Bayou and the diverse characters that sweep you up!! I can’t wait for the next one!!!”—Addicted To Romance “A fun paranormal series with plenty of humor, food and sweet romance.”—Hot Listens

A spoiled yet struggling princess gets a dose of romance in this tongue-in-cheek sequel to The Royal Treatment, from the New York Times–bestselling author. The Kingdom of Alaska—majestic, wild, and definitely still part of Russia—has a problem. Princess Alexandria’s acid wit has turned even more biting after a bad case of insomnia has kept her from getting any royal rest. Enter marine biologist Dr. Shel “Never Sheldon” Rivers, called on by his boss to help the regal cranky pants get forty winks so that she’ll be receptive to his ardent wooing. Dr. Rivers wants nothing more than to be alone. In his lab. All the time. And now he’s stuck waiting on a spoiled princess hand and foot: escorting her around the marine institute, explaining his experiments, kissing her until her royal toes curl . . . Well, okay, that part wasn’t exactly planned. Still, Dr. Rivers might have some new ideas on how to finally get the fantastic, exasperating woman some well-deserved shut-eye. Ideas that involve getting her very, very tired after some extracurricular activities . . . In this delightfully madcap sequel to The Royal Treatment, the Baranov family will learn a few lessons about love as a prickly princess and peevish PhD discover that sometimes attraction is the best medicine.
