Dom Gianni takes a lot of punishment in the hockey rink, but when he sees Molly McCarran getting beaten up by her husband, he’s ready to throw down his gloves and fight for her. But Molly isn’t about to trust another man—and Dom is already skating on thin ice with his NHL-mandated probation. Besides, how could a hotshot player like Dom really care about a woman so much older than he? Then a kidnapping ups the stakes. If Molly can’t believe in Dom, and if he can’t dig deep to save her, it might be the final buzzer for them both.

Still reeling from a tragedy that changed his life, baseball superstar Dante Lamonte is a broken man. He keeps his demons at bay with alcohol and kinky sex, but never finds relief. Becca Hernandez is a sweet girl with terrible luck with men—and worse luck with sex. She hasn’t been able to forget her one-night stand with Dante or how he took her way out of her comfort zone in bed, but she knew they could never be together. When their paths cross again, they can’t resist picking up where they left off. One night of passion turns into much more, but their struggles dealing with the past and the present make it difficult to imagine a future. Becca stands to lose everything when details of their less-than-vanilla night at a sex club are leaked to the press—love may be their only salvation. Author’s Note: This series is somewhat darker than my other books. Although they are all HEA’s, there are elements of BDSM, ménage, hate crimes, vigilante justice and LGBTQ relationships throughout the series. If you're concerned about trigger warnings, this may not be the series for you.

Kazantzakis, Volume 1

Politics of the Spirit

"No author who lives in Greece," writes Peter Bien, "can avoid politics." This first volume of his major intellectual biography of Nikos Kazantzakis approaches the distinguished--and controversial--writer by describing his struggle with political questions that were in reality aspects of a fervent religious search. Beginning with Kazantzakis's early career in fin-de-siècle Paris and his discovery of William James, Nietzsche, and Bergson, the book continues by describing his experiments with communism in turbulent Greece, his visits to Soviet Russia, and the publication of his epic Odyssey in 1938. Bien demonstrates that politics and religion cannot be separated in Kazantzakis's development. His major concern was personal salvation, but the method he employed to win that salvation was political engagement. Did deliverance lie in nationalism? Communism? Fascism? He eventually rejected each of these possible solutions as morally appalling. Abused by both left and right, he insisted on an "eschatological politics" of spiritual fulfillment. This compelling biography will be essential reading for Kazantzakis scholars and for a wide audience of those who already admire the Greek author's work. In addition, it will provide an introduction to the first three decades of Kazantzakis's career for those who have yet to enjoy such passionate and stirring novels as Zorba the Greek, The Greek Passion, and The Last Temptation of Christ. This first volume provides an introduction to the initial three decades of Kazantzakis's career for those who have enjoyed such vibrant and stirring novels as Zorba the Greek, The Greek Passion, and The Last Temptation of Christ.

A faithful yet totally original contemporary spin on a classic, Dante's Inferno as interpreted by acclaimed artist Sandow Birk and writer Marcus Sanders is a journey through a Hell that bears an eerie semblance to our own world. Birk, hailed by the Los Angeles Times as one of "realism's edgier, more visionary painters," offers extraordinarily nuanced and vivid illustrations inspired by Gustave Dore's famous engravings. This modern interpretation depicts an infernal landscape infested with mini-malls, fast food restaurants, ATMs, and other urban fixtures, and a text that cleverly incorporates urban slang and references to modern events and people (as Dante did in his own time). Previously published in a deluxe, fine-press edition to wide praise, and accompanied by national exhibitions, this striking paperback edition of Dante's Inferno is a genuinely provocative and insightful adaptation for a new generation of readers.

Nicole Krauss, die Autorin des Welterfolges «Die Geschichte der Liebe», kehrt mit einem phantastischen Roman zurück: Ein vom Leben enttäuschter reicher New Yorker Anwalt und eine Schriftstellerin mit Eheproblemen machen sich auf die Suche nach dem Unbekannten in sich selbst und finden in der Wüste Israels überraschende Wege, über sich, ihre Träume und die Welt hinaus ins Unendliche zu schauen. Jules Epstein, 68, einst Beweger und politischer Macher mit übergroßem Ego, gerät nach der Scheidung von seiner langjährigen Frau aus dem Tritt. Zum Schrecken seiner Kinder verschenkt er den größten Teil seines Vermögens und möchte den Rest in eine Stiftung zum Gedenken an seine verstorbenen Eltern stecken. Am liebsten würde er den seit 2000 Jahren abgeholzten Mount Hebron in Israel aufforsten lassen. Schon im Flieger allerdings lernt er einen Rabbiner kennen, der ein Treffen sämtlicher lebender Abkömmlinge von König David plant und darauf besteht, Epstein gehöre zu dieser traditionsreichen dynastischen Linie. Epstein versucht, den versponnenen Rabbi loszuwerden, aber dann trifft er auf dessen verführerische Tochter, die in der Wüste Negev einen Film dreht ... Die junge Autorin Nicole aus Brooklyn lässt nach einer Epiphanie in der Küche, bei der sie sich nur noch als nutzloses Staubkorn im Multiversum sieht, ihre Familie zurück und flieht ins Hilton von Tel Aviv, wo sie seit ihrer Geburt jedes Jahr gewesen ist. Ein Ort der Ruhe, hofft sie, an dem sie sich wiederfinden kann. Doch ein emeritierter Literaturprofessor mit dubioser Mossad-Vergangenheit lauert ihr ständig auf und bedrängt sie, ein unvollendetes Drama fertigzuschreiben, das angeblich von Kafka stammt. Und während aus den Palästinensergebieten Raketen über den nächtlichen Himmel ziehen, landet Nicole, irregeleitet vom sinistren Professor, allein in einer Hütte in der Wüste Negev. Auf dem Schreibtisch nur zwei Dinge: eine alte Schreibmaschine und ein Bildband, betitelt «Die Wälder Israels». Mit sprühender Intelligenz und erzählerischer Raffinesse webt Nicole Krauss ein traumhaft metaphorisches Gespinst von einem Roman, frei nach Dante: «Ich fand auf unseres Lebensweges Mitte in eines Waldes Dunkel mich verschlagen, weil sich vom rechten Pfad verirrt die Schritte.»
