Gran Bretagna, prima metà del XIX secolo. Keiran Cole MacKendrick, primogenito della famiglia Northcliff, destinato a diventare Duca, uomo temuto e misterioso, ha poteri sensitivi straordinari e un carattere forte e deciso. Eleonor Hambrook, giovane estroversa e anticonformista, scrive sotto pseudonimo articoli provocatori per la società di quegli anni e si interessa alla scienza medica. La storia delle loro famiglie e dei numerosi personaggi si intreccia sullo sfondo delle guerre napoleoniche in un romanzo intenso, ricco di misteri e suspense che avvolgono inspiegabili eventi, in un succedersi di drammi, sentimenti, passioni, colpi di scena, romanticismo ed erotismo dosati con estremo equilibrio dalla scrittrice. “Questa autrice vi sorprenderà già dalle prime pagine. Il suo lessico e la fluidità nella scrittura sono impeccabili. La scrittura è così precisa e sofisticata che vi permetterà di immergervi completamente nell’atmosfera regale della nobile Inghilterra dell’Ottocento. Complimenti all’autrice perché per poter scrivere un romanzo come il suo è necessaria una ricerca e uno studio del periodo storico non indifferente. Tutto di questo romanzo grida veridicità.” dal blog Romance and Fantasy for Cosmopolitan Girl. “Quando una lettura riesce a catturarti talmente tanto da ritrovarti, nei momenti più disparati della giornata, a desiderare ardentemente di tornare a rifugiarti nelle pagine del libro, be’ a mio parere la mano che lo ha creato ha davvero fatto un miracolo. E mi ostino ad affermare, come altre volte avete avuto modo di leggere nelle mie recensioni, che di letture piacevoli ce ne possono essere tante, ma di quelle che ti catturano l’anima e ti tolgono il sonno, ce ne sono poche.” dal blog Daydreamingreviews. L'autrice esordisce in agosto del 2016 con la serie Northcliff de Il Duca. É subito un successo: sono stati venduti 10.000 ebook della Trilogia!

* * * A hot historical romance from USA TODAY Bestselling Author Jess Michaels * * * For years Serafina McPhee has been engaged to marry the heir to the Duke of Hartholm and for almost as long, she has been struggling to find a way out of that engagement. When he suddenly dies, she does not mourn but thrills at the idea that she will be free. Unfortunately, best laid plans go awry when the next in line for the title, her intended's cousin, Raphael "Rafe" Flynn is forced to take over the engagement. But Serafina knows Rafe's reputation as a libertine and wants nothing to do with him, either, even if he is devastatingly handsome. She proposes an arrangement: she will agree to the marriage and provide Rafe with his heir and spare. Once she has done her duty, he will let her go. Rafe is intrigued both by her beauty and by her utter disgust with the idea of being his bride. Women normally fall at his feet, not cringe away from him. However, since their arranged marriage is not something he can escape, he agrees to her terms. But when he finds out on their wedding night the truth about her torture at the hands of his predecessor, he finds himself driven not just to fulfill his bargain with his new bride, but to introduce her to desire. While they move closer together, surrendering to wicked pleasures, dangerous emotions may violate every agreement they've made.

Based on the firsthand accounts of German, French, British, and American front-line soldiers, No Man's Land examines how the first modern, industrialized war transformed the character of the men who participated in it. Ancient myths about war eroded in the trenches, where the relentless monotony and impotence of the solder's life was interrupted only by unpredictable moments of annihilation. Professor Leed looks at how the traumatic experience of combat itself and the wholesale shattering of the conventions and ethical codes of normal social life turned ordinary civilians into 'liminal men', men living beyond the limits of the accepted and the expected. He uses the concept of liminality to illuminate the central features of the war experience: the separation from 'home': the experience of pollution, death, comradeship, and 'the uncanny': and the ambivalence of returning veterans about civilian society. In a final chapter Professor Leed assesses the long-term political impact of the front experience. He finds that the end of hostilities did not mean the end of the war experience as much as the beginning of a process by which that experience was framed, institutionalized, celebrated and relived in political action as well as in fiction.

By the author of two 20th Century classics of Italian prose, this short novel is set in 1922 (when the Fascists seized power in Italy) and weaves together the lives of an impoverished aristocrat's daughter and a salesman who collects antique tomes of philosophy. There are many digressions on the way - a lover lost in the First World War, the Madonna's rescue of a doctor from witches, Mr Digbens of Colchester and his philosophical correspondents - so as to arrive at a series of crafted coincidences and a twist of humour in the melodramatic denouement.

A late-night telephone call about a mysterious car which went missing seven years ago and has now been recovered causes a chain reaction of violence in this all-new comics novelette from Gipi; ultimately this crime story (which is not so much a "sequel" to The Innocents as another story set in the same milieu with a different cast of characters) turns into a tale of religion and hypocrisy
