But their fairytale is soon jeopardized when Maddy's ex, with ties deep in a mafia, fully intends to bring her and his son back. Risking who he loves most, Josh will stop at nothing to take Giovanni down. Bargaining with the Billionaire A desperate woman let’s a wealthy man take her on a kinky journey of self-discovery. With his love and patience, she sets out on a journey to find herself and the power that was within her all along. When twenty-two-year-old secretary Shawna Jones finds herself fired from her job for seemingly no reason, she is dreading facing the owner of Furst Industries, Eric Furst. It was bad enough she’d been humiliated in front of the entire department, but having an exit interview with the elusive, thirty-year old billionaire wasn’t on her list of things to do. She needed a new job and she needed one quick. She didn’t have time for formalities. But Eric sees something in her that intrigues him, and instead of letting her walk away, he offers her a series of jobs escorting him to fundraisers and other events. When he invites her to Vegas to enjoy a weekend in his new risqué BDSM themed hotel, Shawna finds out that there’s more to this man than a handsome face. But what she finds out about herself is even more surprising. The End Game Detective Lilly Bruce has life figured out. That is, until a handsome football player named Jason Hathaway finds himself caught in the middle of a murder investigation. Handsome Hathaway tugs on Lilly's heartstrings and ignites her passions in ways no man ever has. But as she delves deeper into the case, the evidence points to Jason. He insists that he's innocent, even in the face of the most damning evidence. As much as Lilly wants to believe him, the facts are right there before them. When the facts suddenly reveal a more startling truth, Lilly is left reeling. Her perfect world of logic and reason is turned upside down and what's worse; Jason is in danger because she didn't believe him. Can she find Jason in time and put the bad guy behind bars before it's too late? Will Jason ever forgive her for arresting him for murder? Out of Reach Charlotte has worked hard for her internship in London, and she cannot wait to get started. The only problem is she wasn’t expecting to hate her new boss so damn much. And desire him. There is undeniable electricity between Charlotte and Joe, but she cannot act on it because she has to leave the country after a year, so they could never become something serious. She just has to resist him for twelve short months… But of course, it isn’t that simple and a company retreat helps to break down all of their barriers. Their passion quickly leads into something more, something dangerous, and of course there will be consequences for that. But are they ready for those consequences? And how will they cope when their little bit of fun turns into something much more serious… Betrayal Louise is a journalist, in desperate need of a good scoop to ensure that she keeps her job, so when her boss sends her to get an expose of Scott Graham – the notorious womanizing billionaire – she knows that this is her shot. Only Scott Graham doesn’t want her to find out anything about him. He has a deep, dark secret which he has managed to bury for years – one that could ruin him – and he doesn’t intend for it to come out now. The only problem is he can’t seem to keep away from Louise. As they grow closer, unable to deny their attraction to one another, the ghosts of Scott’s past return and threaten to ruin them both. Will they be able to make it, or will it end up being the ultimate betrayal?

In Bad Boy, renowned American artist Eric Fischl has written a penetrating, often searing exploration of his coming of age as an artist, and his search for a fresh narrative style in the highly charged and competitive New York art world in the 1970s and 1980s. With such notorious and controversial paintings as Bad Boy and Sleepwalker, Fischl joined the front ranks of America artists, in a high-octane downtown art scene that included Andy Warhol, David Salle, Julian Schnabel, and others. It was a world of fashion, fame, cocaine and alcohol that for a time threatened to undermine all that Fischl had achieved. In an extraordinarily candid and revealing memoir, Fischl discusses the impact of his dysfunctional family on his art—his mother, an imaginative and tragic woman, was an alcoholic who ultimately took her own life. Following his years as a student at Cal Arts and teaching in Nova Scotia, he describes his early years in New York with the artist April Gornik, just as Wall Street money begins to encroach on the old gallery system and change the economics of the art world. Fischl rebelled against the conceptual and minimalist art that was in fashion at the time to paint compelling portraits of everyday people that captured the unspoken tensions in their lives. Still in his thirties, Eric became the subject of a major Vanity Fair interview, his canvases sold for as much as a million dollars, and The Whitney Museum mounted a major retrospective of his paintings. Bad Boy follows Fischl’s maturation both as an artist and sculptor, and his inevitable fall from grace as a new generation of artists takes center stage, and he is forced to grapple with his legacy and place among museums and collectors. Beautifully written, and as courageously revealing as his most provocative paintings, Bad Boy takes the reader on a roller coaster ride through the passion and politics of the art world as it has rarely been seen before.

She teaches him to scope out women at baggage claim; come back from a dinner date with a new girl’s phone number scrawled on his hand; and always carry a motorcycle helmet—even though he doesn’t ride a motorcycle.

This is a tale of friendship, greed, and betrayal in the music industry—and a definitive history of America's biggest rap mogul. No one knows more about creating hits than Sean “Puffy” Combs. For years he virtually ran hip-hop. It seemed the perfect arrangement: “Puffy” provided the sounds and obsessive attention to detail while the Notorious B.I.G. promoted an image that kept rap fans happy. It should have lasted forever, but “Biggie” was murdered at the height of his career—and “Puffy”'s ascension to superstardom ushered in an age of disloyalty and deception that exploded into one of the greatest debacles in the history of the music industry. Through interviews with label insiders, grand jury testimony, and other sources, America's preeminent rap journalist Ronin Ro -reveals the true story of “Puffy” -addresses the larger issues that shaped the man and the industry -explains how Bad Boy both helped and destroyed hip-hop and R&B music -details why some artists “Puffy” created ultimately left his Bad Boy family in disgust. At once an intimate history and a portrait of an era, Bad Boy shows readers exactly how Combs lost his strangle-hold over the multibillion-dollar rap music industry. The story of Bad Boy Entertainment is the story of the American Dream, an up-close and personal account of the people, the money, the creative process that made it all come true, and the young mogul who caused the dream to fall apart. In this hip-hop tragedy of Shakespearean dimensions, readers finally learn the story that Sean “Puffy” Combs does not want them to know.

A Bad Boy trying to be good, a Good Girl driven to be bad and a five year old who wants to rule the world… When an injury ends Flynn Boyle’s professional soccer career, he doesn’t know what to do with himself or the rest of his life. According to the tabloid press, all he’s good for is partying hard, womanising and making an ass of himself. The sad thing is—they aren’t far wrong. With no other plans, Flynn heads back to his Highland hometown to regroup—unfortunately, his wild lifestyle and reputation follow him there. Abby McKenzie is a widow with a five year old. She’s trying to keep her business going, and keep her head above water, while she raises her child and gets over the death of her husband. When Flynn Boyle buys the plot of land next to Abby’s and sets up home in a luxury RV, Abby fears the worst. The last thing she needs is to be swept up into the drama of an immature playboy. All Abby wants is a quiet life and Flynn wouldn’t recognise quiet if it bit him on the backside. When Flynn’s wild life overflows into Abby’s nice contained one, the next thing she knows she’s featuring in the tabloid press. Flynn doesn’t see the big deal, but then, he doesn’t have a stuck-up mother who would like nothing more than to take Abby’s child from her and raise her “properly”. The bad publicity gives Abby’s mother the ammunition she needs to sue for custody of five year old Katy. Abby has one week to prove that she’s giving her child a staid, sensible and nurturing environment, or she could lose her baby. Even though her business is failing and Abby is barely holding it together, she knows she can show the courts exactly what they need to see in order for her to keep her child. The only problem is, Flynn. He’s right next door. He’s dragged her into his mess of a life. And he’s going to make Abby lose her child. Unless… Unless, she can get the bad boy of soccer to turn over a new leaf. If he could just behave himself for one week, she’d be home free. All she needs is for Flynn Boyle to be a good guy. A quiet, respectful, chaos free good guy, for one whole week. Seriously, how hard could that be?
