I had everything I ever wanted, living the dream, at least that's what I always thought. The night we met, we had an instant attraction, but she was with someone else. When we reunited a few months later, that pull was still there, stronger than ever. So strong, that even though she was hundreds of miles away, I pursued her. I told myself that I just wanted to get to know her. Deep down I knew it was more. I never understood the draw of living in the middle of nowhere. Born and raised a city girl, I never had the desire to leave. Who would have thought a weekend trip to the country would have me questioning myself? It was more than just the country; it's him. The way he looks at me, treats me, that smooth southern drawl. Am I willing to give up my legacy for her? Am I willing to give up my dream for him? Can two souls come together by the force of Southern Attraction?

The List As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson pines for the day he can afford the luxuries of the partners in his Charlotte firm. With news of his father's death and a secret inheritance, Renny finds himself in the middle of a mystery he never knew existed. Renny's life, and that of the woman he loves, depend on supernatural deliverance from a clandestine society and the ancient curse of “The List.” The Sacrifice Attorney Scott Ellis is defending Lester Garrison, a 16-year-old accused of opening gunfire on a Sunday afternoon church gathering. At the same time, Scott’s volunteer work at the local high school brings him into contact with Kay Wilson, an English teacher and former girlfriend. Unknown to either of them, Catawba High School is not just a place of learning—it’s a battleground for an age-old struggle between good and evil. On one side are praying students and a simple janitor with an extraordinary faith. On the other side is a deeply troubled young man intent on mass destruction. Caught in the middle, Scott and Kay learn that lasting victory will require the ultimate sacrifice. Mountain Top Can Mike Andrews trust his client's dreams and visions—even when they threaten to destroy his future? Supernatural visions filled with images of keys, hatchets, hammers, and fires. An eccentric old man in jail—accused of robbing a church and knowing things he has no right to know. A lawyer-turned-pastor—suddenly summoned to a stranger's cell by a dream. How much will one man risk to defend another, when the truth lands him in prison . . . and the only evidence proving his innocence comes by a dream?

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.

Book One: Second Chances Life sails along smoothly on beautiful St. Thomas for Abby Melrose Bellavance, or so she thinks. That is, until her husband Remy steals her trust fund and disappears for parts unknown. Now, with five million reasons to write off men for good, she returns to Charleston, broke and groveling at her mother’s feet. Living again in the opulent mansion on South Battery, Abby is thrown another curve ball. Her mother passes away, leaving Abby with an enormous home but no money to support it. Turning the mansion into a boardinghouse has its advantage—immediate cash—and disadvantage—two of the hottest men in Charleston are now Abby’s tenants. Abby wants love again, especially with hunky Erik, the handyman, and sexy Brandon, the prominent attorney, living in the mansion with her. They are so different, yet they’re similar in one way she needs to avoid—they are men, and she should keep her distance. As the southern summer blazes on, Abby’s life becomes even more complicated. Personal secrets are revealed, and fate deals her one final blow. She wonders if she will ever be given a second chance at falling in love. Book Two: Jasmine Kisses Ellie Ford’s life is moving along beautifully. In three days, she will become the wife of her longtime fiancé, Luke Baker. There isn’t any downside to that until she finds that dreaded note in Luke’s pants pocket. Her romantic ideal of marital bliss becomes her worst nightmare, with Luke in the leading role as a two-timing cheater. To Ellie, the idea of canceling the wedding without notice is unthinkable. But on their special day, Luke is the one absent from the ceremony. The honeymoon Ellie was so looking forward to suddenly becomes a vacation with Gina—her dearest friend—to Charleston, her favorite city. Within a month, Ellie loads up her beloved jasmine plant and moves south. Falling for Donovan Winthrop, the gallery owner and accomplished artist, isn’t on Ellie’s bucket list, but she can’t help herself. He’s gorgeous, sweet, and a true southern gentleman—or is he? Donovan has a few secrets of his own that he doesn’t want to share. Revealing their secrets to each other is the only way they can move forward as a couple, but a wrench is suddenly thrown into their plans when Luke Baker arrives in Charleston, ready to make amends with Ellie and take her home. Ellie must decide whether to stay and begin a new romance or leave and slip back into the familiarity of an old one. Feeling torn, Ellie has a lot to think about—and two men waiting for her answer. Book Three: Her Own Paradise If available men come in threes, Melanie Davis has hit the trifecta. Sweet, sexy Jackson Reed is handsome, spontaneous, and successful but a man-child magician at the tender age of twenty-two. Mel knows better and can’t come to grips with dating him. Their lives rotate in completely different stratospheres. John Richmond, on the other hand, is just right. He’s gorgeous, thoughtful, and thirty-four. He also lives thirteen hundred miles away in St. Thomas—smack in the middle of hurricane alley. A girl can’t catch a break—or can she? A chance meeting with hunky Dan DeLong, a sexy, tan veterinarian with Caribbean-blue eyes, might be exactly what the doctor ordered. Even better, he’s local, the perfect age, and has never been married. Is the third time the charm? Have the trifecta gods handed her the man of her dreams—and does she even want one? She wonders if she can actually find the perfect man and her own paradise right here, in the city she loves most—Charleston.

Seit ein mysteröses 'Ereignis' vor mehr als dreißig Jahren das Gebiet erschütterte, ist Area X von einer unsichtbaren Grenze umgeben. Niemand weiß genau, was dahinter geschieht, aber es gibt Gerüchte von einer sich verändernden und die Reste der menschlichen Zivilisation überwuchernden Natur, einer Natur, die ebenso makellos und bezaubernd wie verstörend und bedrohlich ist. Zuständig für das Gebiet ist eine geheime Regierungsorganisation, die sich 'Southern Reach' nennt und den Auftrag hat, herauszufinden, was hinter der Grenze geschieht. Aber keine der Expeditionen, die 'Southern Reach' in das Gebiet entsandte, um Erklärungen für das Unerklärbare zu finden, hatte bisher Erfolg. Die meisten der Expeditionen endeten in Katastrophen, bei denen letztlich alle Mitglieder ums Leben kamen, und die Zeit, um Antworten zu finden, wird knapp, denn Area X scheint sich immer schneller auszudehnen. "Auslöschung" ist der Bericht über die zwölfte Expedition. Sie besteht aus vier Frauen: einer Anthropologin, einer Landvermesserin, einer Psychologin und einer Biologin. Ihre Aufgabe ist es, die Geheimnisse von Area X zu entschlüsseln, das Gebiet zu kartographieren, Flora und Fauna zu katalogisieren, ihre Beobachtungen in Tagebüchern zu dokumentieren, vor allem aber sich nicht von Area X kontaminieren zu lassen. Doch es sind die Geheimnisse, die sie mit über die Grenze gebracht haben, die alles verändern werden ... Ein fesselnder, fantastischer Roman über eine unheimliche Welt und die Fremdheit in uns. Ein Roman von der Kraft eines Mythos.

«Absolut unglaublich, ehrlich und herzzerreißend!» Angie Thomas, Autorin von «The Hate U Give» Justyce McAllister ist einer der Besten seiner Klasse, Captain des Debattierclubs und Anwärter auf einen Studienplatz in Yale – doch all das interessiert den Polizisten, der Justyce die Handschellen umlegt, nur wenig. Der Grund für seine Verhaftung: Justyce ist schwarz. Und er lebt in den USA im Jahr 2017. Mit Briefen an sein großes Vorbild Martin Luther King jr. versucht Justyce, dem alltäglichen Rassismus etwas entgegenzusetzen. Und dann ist da noch Sarah-Jane, seine kluge, schöne — und weiße – Debattierpartnerin. Als jedoch sein bester Freund Manny erschossen wird, scheint es, als ob selbst Martin Luther King jr. keine Antwort mehr für Justyce bereithält.
