My Lady's Pleasure

By Quincy, Olivia

A Signet Eclipse Book, 2010. Book. Fine. Trade Paperback. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Like-new condition. Appears unread. NO remainder marks or clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 294 pages. Product Description: A fabulous debut novel of sensual suspense and one woman's erotic liberation in Victorian England. Lady Georgiana Vernon, daughter of the Earl of Eastley, and Jeremy Staunton, youngest son of a viscount, have an unconventional relationship-at least for the upper crust in 1895. They meet publicly as friends, and privately as lovers. It's an arrangement that allows Georgiana the sexual freedom she desires-and continues to indulge in-as a guest at Penfield, where the most sought-after names in the country gather for Lord Laughlin's annual masquerade ball. Then Georgiana initiates a torrid affair with the sexy landscape architect working at Penfield. She sees it as nothing more than a harmless but pleasurable indulgence. But when the relationship is discovered she becomes the target of increasingly malicious threats. During the night of the masquerade ball, these intimidations will come to a dangerous head, as the men in Georgiana's life reveal their own secret desires. About the Author: Olivia Quincy is the pseudonym for a journalist and co-author of several nonfiction titles. She lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts..

Hank & Chloe

By Mapson, Jo-Ann

New York, New York, U.S.A.: HarperPerennial, 1994. Book. Very Good +. Trade Paperback. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Very-good+, clean copy. NO remainder marks or clippings - Tight spine - Clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 310 pages - Chloe Morgan is a thirty-three-year-old part-time waitress, small-time horse trainer, and full-time thoroughly toughened Western woman living in a corner of the dwindling canyonlands of Southern California. Calloused and wary, Chloe allows herself to love with total abandon and complete faith only her horse and her dog. That is, until a quirk in the weather and a sunrise funeral service cause her to cross the path of Henry Oliver, a sedate professor of folklore at the local college, who, like Chloe, has his reasons for holding back. But once Hank steps inside Chloe's makeshift cabin in the hills, Chloe realizes she must come to terms with her losses and decide between the life of solitude she had always thought was her fate and the love of a man who seems at first all wrong..

A House in the Hamptons

By Nagy, Gloria

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Dell Publishing, 1990. Book. Near-Fine. Hardcover. First Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. A photo of this book is available. No writing or tears inside book. Tight spine, bright pages. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Price inside dustcover: $23.95. 374 pages. This immensely entertaining fifth novel from the author of Radio Blues is as much an astute sociological study of yuppies in late-'80s New York as it is amusing, hip, highly readable fiction. Publisher Harry Hart and psychiatrist Donnie Jamieson, best friends with second houses in the Hamptons, loved the same Marilyn Monroe look-alike back in high school. When she moves to Easthampton 25 years later, disrupting their summer routine, wacky inconveniences give way to family catastrophes, and the men, their wives and their loved ones--most of whom could have stepped out of TV's thirty some thing --must confront the fear and angst lurking beneath their cool exteriors. Keen observation and psychological insight empower Nagy's lively portrayals of everyone from the lowbrow masseuse to the teenage au pair to the status-conscious millionaires for whom Ferraris, Ralph Lauren, psychotherapy and sun-dried tomatoes are the stuff of life. Nagy alternates narrators, allowing the reader to sympathize with even the obnoxious personalities, who, ultimately shedding their masks, become surprisingly likable and all too human.

Number line: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Tight spine, bright pages. NO writing, marks or tears. 215 pages. Synopsis: It was the publicity stunt from hell as far as Kirsten Rumm was concerned. She may have been writing the book about her late husband, aeronautical daredevil Demon Rumm, but she didn't see the need to play host to the arrogant bad-boy actor starring in the film version's title role. Still, for the good of the project, Kirsten agreed to share her beachfront home with the impossibly sexy screen idol. Any other woman would do anything to be in her sandals, but Kirsten wasn't falling for Rylan North, even if he did play his role of male lead to perfection. His down-home charm, his gentleness and virile charisma, might be seducing her in every sense of the word, but he was an actor, after all. Seducing an audience was his job. Rylan could have any woman he wanted. So why was he so desperately pretending to want her? From the moment he saw her, Rylan North knew that Kirsten Rumm was the woman he'd been waiting all his life to cast as the star in his real-life love story. What did it matter if he was every woman's fantasy if he couldn't get Kirsten to so much as glance his way? He'd caught the look of past hurt behind her sky-blue eyes a dark secret that shadowed the sparkle. Rylan was determined to find out what tragedy held this passionate woman back from a second chance at love even if it cost him his reputation, his career, and his life. But first he'd have to get Kirsten to act on her instincts . . . and to trust the flesh-and-blood man behind the fantasy..

Mr. Muo's Travelling Couch

By Sijie, Dai; Rilke, Ina (translation from the French)

Alfred A Knopf, 2005. Book. Fine. Hardcover. First U.S. Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Like-new copy. Appears unread. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Price inside dustcover: $22.00. Stated First American Edition. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 291 pages. Synopsis: Having enchanted readers on two continents with Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, Dai Sijie now produces a rapturous and uproarious collision of East and West, a novel about the dream of love and the love of dreams. Fresh from 11 years in Paris studying Freud, bookish Mr. Muo returns to China to spread the gospel of psychoanalysis. His secret purpose is to free his college sweetheart from prison. To do so he has to get on the good side of the bloodthirsty Judge Di, and to accomplish that he must provide the judge with a virgin maiden. This may prove difficult in a China that has embraced western sexual mores along with capitalism especially since Muo, while indisputably a romantic, is no ladies' man. Tender, laugh-out-loud funny, and unexpectedly wise, Mr. Muo's Travelling Couch introduces a hero as endearingly inept as Inspector Clouseau and as valiant as Don Quixote..

Lost Laysen

By Mitchell, Margaret; Freer, Debra

Scribner, 1996. Book. Fine. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. A photo of this book is available. Very-nice, clean copy. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Number line: 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2. Dustcover is clean, shows light wear, 1 tiny, closed tear. Tight spine, clean pages. Illustrated. 127 pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. The world saw only one book by Margaret Mitchell published in her lifetime, the incomparable Gone With the Wind, the most popular novel in American history. Upon her death in 1949, her personal papers, almost all other writing, and even the original typescript of Gone With the Wind were destroyed. Now, sixty years later, the impossible has happened: The world has another story from Margaret Mitchell. Better still, it's a delight, a fitting predecessor to America's most beloved epic novel. A spirited tale of love and honor on a doomed South Pacific island called Laysen, Lost Laysen would be justly praised as a charming effort by a remarkable young talent if it were its author's only work. But it isn't, of course, and Lost Laysen also enchants because of the many fascinating ways it foretells Gone With the Wind: in its two central male characters, one a gentleman and the other more rough-hewn, who vie for the attention of a feisty, independent-minded woman, and who will go to any lengths to defend her honor; in its re-creation of a vanished world; and in its unforgettable ending. The real-life romance at the heart of Lost Laysen's discovery is as enthralling as any work of fiction. Margaret Mitchell gave the story, handwritten in two lined notebooks, to a young suitor, Henry Love Angel. Angel put the notebooks away for safekeeping, just as he put away all of Mitchell's intimate letters to him, as well as their treasured photographs taken over the years. Well over half a century passed before Henry Love Angel's son, realizing what had been passed down to him, brought the story, the letters, and the photos to Atlanta's Road to Tara Museum. Nationally respected Margaret Mitchell historian Debra Freer masterfully weaves Margaret Mitchell's never-before-seen letters and photographs into a fascinating introduction that tells the story of Mitchell's relationship with Henry Love Angel and puts the writing of Lost Laysen into its proper context..

And Manfred, who is not what he seems to be, is reluctantly taken with Anna, just as she finds herself drawn uncomfortably to him.
