Book Summary:

"Marlowe's delightful tale is replete with unexpected characters, a wonderful romance and a page-turning plot."—RT Book Reviews, 4 1⁄2 stars John Fitzhugh Barrett, unexpected heir to a marquessate, suddenly has ladies from all over the country descending upon him. But John doesn't owe anything to the family who let him think he was a bastard all his life, and he's determined to marry the woman he wants. John Fitzhugh Barrett, surprised to learn he is heir to a marquessate, is determined his new status won't mean giving up his freedom. But as families from all over England descend upon Somerfield Park for the shooting season, their unmarried daughters are lining up to bag the newest trophy buck—him. John's instinct for self-preservation inspires him to divide his attentions between a scandalous young widow, and the safely ineligible Rebecca Kearsey, daughter of a destitute baron. The charade gives John the illusion of controlling the game but when he loses his heart to the beautiful Rebecca, all bets are off. Praise for A Rake by Any Other Name: "Marlowe shines with a delightful and delicious comedy of errors...Regency fans will love this page-turner." —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

Book Summary:

The madcap true story of how Rachel Johnson—born into one of Britain's most famous political families and known since childhood as "Rake"—tries and fails to get elected in the 2019 hard-fought effort to stop Brexit, running against her older brother, Boris, and what she learns in the process about politics, ambition, family, marriage, and winning and losing. In this fast-paced, irresistible tale, part comic memoir, part diary, part manifesto, Rachel Johnson, daughter of one of England's most brilliant and idiosyncratic families, tells the story of how, in a fit of righteous fury about how the 2019 Brexit vote to leave the EU would affect her own children in their freedom to live, learn, travel, and love, brought about by men she has known either since school or birth, she decides to become the lead candidate for the newly organized pro-Europe Change UK party, running against her older brother, Alexander, known to the world as Boris, who as a child of six claimed he wanted to be "World King"; with Rachel, a year younger, wanting to be "wife and mother." Johnson writes how she set out to attain the slight victory needed to win her district, crisscrossing its 28,000 square miles on trains, speaking at rallies, handing out leaflets to retirees in freezing supermarket parking lots . . . She writes of the betrayals, the egos, the broken promises, the tensions, the pulls and pushes of campaigning. And she writes of what it is to be a candidate, and female and a mother, of the challenges faced by women in public life, and the reality that for women in the UK, despite having had two female prime ministers, not that much has changed . . . and in the midst of it all, she tells the riveting story of the Johnson family itself, as curious, recognizable and compelling as the Mitfords of England; as famous and lionized as the Kennedys in the U.S. . . .

Book Summary:

Scoundrels, thieves, and rebels inhabit the rookeries--where dangerous men fall in love with fierce women. ONCE SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL... Abigail Vautille dreamed of escaping the Whitechapel rookery and starting a new life until one tragic night left her scarred and penniless. To save her family from debtor's prison, she strikes a deal with the rogue who owns her father's gambling vowels--if he excuses the debt, for two weeks, she'll give him her body, but not her heart. ONCE HE WAS CHARMING... Inspector Michael Strickland of the Metropolitan Police has always had a way with women. Success comes easily to him, and he glides through life on his good looks and family name. But Abigail lights a passion within him he never knew existed. He sees the beauty within her, not the beast she believes herself to be. TOGETHER, THEIR LOVE IS BEYOND A FAIRY TALE. After a dangerous figure from Abigail's past resurfaces vowing vengeance, things take a sinister turn. But Michael will stop at nothing to keep the woman he loves safe. When the stakes are high and the scars are more than skin deep, passion may be the key to a happily ever after. ------- Note: Beauty and the Rake is a dark, gritty, and steamy (heat level 4 out of 5, on-page sex scenes) full-length romantic suspense set in pre-Victorian working-class London. While it is book three in the Rookery Rogues series, it can be read as a stand-alone historical romance.

With her sister's marriage to an earl, the weight of responsibility to save her family has been lifted from her shoulders, and for the first time in her life Claire is free. A rebelliousness she's long denied has her acting out in ways she would never have imagined. Like chasing her brother through the dark streets of London... and kissing her brother's best friend and notorious rake, Lord Nicholas. Nicholas thought he knew everything there was to know about his friend's proper and boring younger sister. Beautiful though she might be, Claire holds no allure for the worldly rogue. At least, not until he holds her in his arms. Could this passionate, daring, feisty woman be the same Claire Cleveland with the simpering smiles? Even more alarming, has the woman of his heart been right in front of his eyes this whole time? He may be late to realize that there is more to Claire than meets the eye, but now that he's seen her true nature, he'll do anything to keep her by his side. Even if that means marrying her. Please Note: This book was formerly titled A Rake's Ruin.

Book Summary:

Set in a Regency London household, this “witty, charming, touching” novel is “highly recommended” (Library Journal). In London’s Mayfair, the house at 67 Clarges Street is often rented out for the social season, and the latest master is a single gentleman, the handsome, rich, and notorious rake Lord Guy Carlton. After years of fighting in the wars against Napoleon, the dashing lord is determined to kick up his heels with wine, women, and song, undeterred by anyone’s appalled reaction. Never before have the Clarges Street servants earned so much money or eaten so well—but their pleasure-loving master seems liable to die of dissipation. In desperation, the staff, led by the witty and resourceful butler, Rainbird, sets out to find a good woman who can calm the lord’s boisterous spirit and save his black soul. Their search ends with the discovery of Miss Esther Jones of Berkeley Square, a prim and righteous woman who seems the perfect reformer. But complications lie ahead and chaos reigns both above and below stairs, as no one, not even Miss Jones herself, is prepared for the transformation that ultimately takes place. . . . Originally published under the name Marion Chesney, this delightful tale of romance and scheming comes from a New York Times–bestselling author who “adroitly manipulates the floating upstairs population that keeps the downstairs on its toes” (Publishers Weekly).

Book Summary:

Instant New York Times bestseller “Howard Zinn on acid or some bullsh*t like that.” —Tim Heidecker The creators of the cult-hit podcast Chapo Trap House deliver a manifesto for everyone who feels orphaned and alienated—politically, culturally, and economically—by the lanyard-wearing Wall Street centrism of the left and the lizard-brained atavism of the right: there is a better way, the Chapo Way. In a guide that reads like “a weirder, smarter, and deliciously meaner version of The Daily Show’s 2004 America (The Book)” (Paste), Chapo Trap House shows you that you don’t have to side with either sinking ships. These self-described “assholes from the internet” offer a fully ironic ideology for all who feel politically hopeless and prefer broadsides and tirades to reasoned debate. Learn the “secret” history of the world, politics, media, and everything in-between that THEY don’t want you to know and chart a course from our wretched present to a utopian future where one can post in the morning, game in the afternoon, and podcast after dinner without ever becoming a poster, gamer, or podcaster. A book that’s “as intellectually serious and analytically original as it is irreverent and funny” (Glenn Greenwald, New York Times bestselling author of No Place to Hide) The Chapo Guide to Revolution features illustrated taxonomies of contemporary liberal and conservative characters, biographies of important thought leaders, “never before seen” drafts of Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom manga, and the ten new laws that govern Chapo Year Zero (everyone gets a dog, billionaires are turned into Soylent, and logic is outlawed). If you’re a fan of sacred cows, prisoners being taken, and holds being barred, then this book is NOT for you. However, if you feel disenfranchised from the political and cultural nightmare we’re in, then Chapo, let’s go…
