Sofia Sol There is a line we¿re forbidden to cross with each other. It¿s not like he and I are genetically related. We aren¿t. But we might as well be. From my earliest memories he¿s been in my life.Motorcycle clubs are families of a wilder sort that no normie can understand. Some of us are joined by blood. Others by bond alone. We¿re just not normal. Never will be. Never want to be.So how fair is it that we¿re made to stay platonic? We train together every day.Get sweaty, sneakily eye droplets that slide down...hard muscles, ripe curves. For years! Enter temptation. Enter fighting desire. But whatever you do, don¿t do it. Don't fall in love.

In 1951 Gaines Post was a gangly, bespectacled, introspective teenager preparing to spend a year in Paris with his professorial father and older brother; his mother, who suffered from extreme depression, had been absent from the family for some time. Ten years later, now less gangly but no less introspective, he was finishing a two-year stint in the army in West Germany and heading toward Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship, having narrowly escaped combat in the Berlin crisis of 1961. His quietly intense coming-of-age story is both self-revealing and reflective of an entire generation of young men who came to adulthood before the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. Post's experiences in high school in Madison, Wisconsin, and Paris, his Camus-influenced undergraduate years at Cornell University, and his army service in Germany are set very effectively against the events of the Cold War. McCarthyism and American crackdowns on dissidents, American foreign and military policy in Western Europe in the nuclear age, French and German life and culture, crises in Paris and Berlin that nearly bring the West to war and the Post family to dissolution—these are the larger scenes and subjects of his self-disclosure as a contemplative, conflicted "Cold War agnostic." His intelligent, talented mother and her fragile health hover over Post's narrative, informing his hesitant relationships with women and his acutely questioning sense of self-worth. His story is strongly academic and historical as well as political and military; his perceptions and judgments lean toward no ideological extreme but remain true to the heroic ideals of his boyhood during the Second World War.

I'm about to run for Senator, the youngest Georgia's seen in 200 years. It's why I went to Yale. Why I work twelve-hour days. I don't want kids. I don't want a wife. For a very good reason that I will never share with anyone. But then a smoky-eyed beauty orders, -Jameson whiskey, rocks...- And accepts my invitation to what turns out to be the hottest sex of my life. When she leaves me staring after her and zipping up my pants, I try like hell to ignore that my obsession just switched...to her. JAIMIE My father needs me in Atlanta. I'm at the airport leaving everything I've built in Boston behind me. Hence the booze before noon on a Tuesday. When Justin Cocker appears, offering himself up as a stress-reliever, I know he doesn't recognize me. Why would he? But I sure as hell remember him. God, the look in his eyes. Desire. Lust. Need.

SARAH Love isn't in the cards for me. It's fine. I've come to terms with it. I'm a smart-ass who could lose maybe fifteen pounds if I gave a shit. You'd probably call me cute, unless I was standing next to Simone - my rockstar best friend, boss and idol. Then you'd call me only one thing...invisible. Even though she doesn't give a shit about him, she's why Jason Cocker can't see me. Not that I want him to. He and his twin brother Justin are the cockiest jerks I've ever met in my life. I don't care how talented Jason is at producing hit records. I hate his guts. Just like he hates mine. So why can't I forget how good he tastes? JASON I'm the only brother who ever wanted to find love. Trouble is I like trophy girls - the gorgeous, spoiled bitch kind that'll never make me happy. And being with them has hardened me. My latest is a rockstar on the verge of greatness, and I'm helping her get there. But her redheaded, smart as a whip, soft around the hips, 5'2" assistant is making my life a living hell. Sarah Daly drives me f*cking crazy. We fight at every turn. So when one of those battles ends with someone accidentally shoving us together in a kiss, I'm stunned to find I like it way more than I should have. Sarah's not my normal type at all, which is why my twin brother Justin would tell you she's exactly who I need. . __________________________ The Cocker Brothers of Atlanta, Georgia, have earned their nickname -- The Cocky Brothers.

Lying is like 95% of what I do. But believe me: in this book, I’ll let you know exactly how to become a master spy just like me. Obviously, you won’t be as good at it as I am, but that’s because you’re you, and I’m Sterling Archer. I know, I know, it sucks not being me. But don’t beat yourself up about it, because I’m going to show you all the good stuff—what to wear; what to drink; how to seduce women (and, when necessary, men); how to beat up men (and, when necessary, women); how to tell the difference between call girls and hookers (hint: when they’re dead, they’re just hookers) and everything about weapons, secret devices, lying ex-girlfriends, and turtlenecks. In a word? How to Archer. From the Back Cover Hi. I see you’re reading the back of my book. This tells me that you either: A) are hoping to find a brief summary of what to expect from a how-to book by Sterling Archer, the world’s greatest secret agent, or B) don’t know how books work. If your answer was “A,” your best bet is probably the table of contents, which is where you’ll find the “contents” of this book listed in a convenient, easy-to-read “table” format. So maybe go check that out for a minute and then come back here. I’ll wait. . . . Pretty cool, right? What other book will teach you how to dress properly and how to drive an elephant? How to field strip an AK-47 and how to haggle with a Thai prostitute—in her native tongue? How to pilot an airboat and how to make about a million delicious cocktails, including a Molotov one? How to kill a guy and how to prepare a fabulous brunch? Plus how to do tons of other stuff that I forgot, but that is nonetheless probably in this book (which, to be honest, I really only kinda skimmed). So if you want to learn more about how to be more—or at all—like Sterling Archer, the world’s greatest secret agent, quit smearing your greasy fingerprints all over this book and buy it. For one thing, I really need the royalties. For another thing, the last time I checked, this wasn’t a damn library. (Note: If your answer was “B,” this probably isn’t the book you want to start with.)

The woman getting kissed long and slow by a douche-bag city boy is Rachel Sawyer, my best friend and secret love back when I was a little boy. Even then I knew she was meant for me. I want to punch that guy for touching her like that...and I just might. But my rural cowboy ways can't compete with her flashy New York City life. What do I have offer her? I don't care. If I don't steal Rachel away from that dick, I'll never have another chance. I can't lose her. Not to him. Not to New York. Not to anyone. Not again. RACHEL This weekend trip to Atlanta, Georgia for Ryan to meet my parents has been one disaster after another. And as Ryan answers yet another work email, I spy a gorgeous man intently staring at him, emerald green eyes daring me to remember him. Oh my God it's him...my first kiss...the boy I could never say no to. Jaxson Cocker. Look at him, all grown up into the type of rugged, masculine sexy that makes my lawyer boyfriend -- I hate to say it -- look like a metrosexual pussy. But I love Ryan...so why am I walking toward Jaxson like he's a magnet and I'm metal? We're no longer children. That chemistry we once had has ripened into something dangerously hot. I want him to touch me, but I shouldn't. I want him to kiss me, but I shouldn't. I want us to do all sorts of things I shouldn't... Just because Ryan and I had a huge fight doesn't mean I have the right to do this. Does it? Why is it some men have the power to make you do things you never dreamed you'd do? __________________________ The Cocker Brothers of Atlanta, Georgia, have earned their nickname -- The Cocky Brothers.

Abalone, Arizona, is a sleepy southwestern town whose chief concerns are boredom and surviving the Great Depression. That is, until the circus of Dr. Lao arrives and immensely and irrevocably changes the lives of everyone drawn to its tents. Expecting a sideshow spectacle, the citizens of Abalone instead confront and learn profound lessons from the mythical made real--a chimera, a Medusa, a talking sphinx, a sea serpent, witches, the Hound of the Hedges, a werewolf, a mermaid, an ancient god, and the elusive, ever-changing Dr. Lao. The circus unfolds, spinning magical, dark strands that ensnare the town's populace: the sea serpent's tale shatters love's illusions; the fortune-teller's shocking pronouncements toll the tedium and secret dread of every person's life; sensual undercurrents pour forth for men and women alike; and the dead walk again. Dazzling and macabre, literary and philosophical, The Circus of Dr. Lao has been acclaimed as a masterpiece of speculative fiction and influenced such writers as Ray Bradbury. This Bison Frontiers of Imagination edition features a new introduction by noted fantasy writer John Marco and striking illustrations by Boris Artzybasheff from the first edition.
