Spencer Cohen is the guy who gets answers to relationship questions. Playing the role of the new lover, his job is to make his client's ex realise one of two things: he doesn't want to break up or he really does. Either way, his client gets answers. The ex would either apologize and beg, or turn and walk. But in the end, Spencer's client won. If he wanted his ex back and got him, it was great. If the guy walked away, then as hard it was for the client, he knew it was over. Regardless of the outcome, Spencer's work was done. Andrew Landon's ex left him without so much as an explanation. But his sister can't stand to see him miserable, so, much to Andrew's dismay, they hire Spencer to be Andrew's new boyfriend to get the ex back. For Spencer, it is never personal. Merely a business transaction. No emotions, no strings, no complications. Yeah right. Even a blind man could see how this would end.

When Yanni Tomaras is kicked out of his family home, his parents' final words are religious insults and an order to never return. Homeless and desperate, he's lured in by Lance-charming on the outside, an evil predator underneath-who abuses Yanni until he finds the courage to leave. Yanni should feel free. But by the time Spencer Cohen finds him, he's resigned to being handed back to Lance and once again being caged by fear. Starting school and a part-time job, Yanni begins to reclaim his life. But a love for silent films leads him to Peter Hannikov, a man with a kind heart but who's twice his age. An unlikely friendship between them blooms into so much more. Neither man knows what he wants, at first. Finding out exactly what he needs is Yanni's story. "I'd spent years as a bird, caged with my wings clipped, tormented and beaten. I thought I'd escaped when I'd left my abuser, but in hindsight, I could see that I was still caged, this time by fear and self-doubt. Spencer and Andrew, and Andrew's parents, opened the door to the cage that confined me. But it was Peter who taught me how to fly."

It's shocking how little most of us know about the fundamental rules for workplace survival. Few people truly understand how to hang onto their jobs, how to effectively respond to threats to their jobs, or what to do if their main source of income is abruptly terminated. Considering how dependent almost all of us are on a steady source of income, coupled with how fragile jobs are in our current economy, it's shocking how little most of us know about the fundamental rules for workplace survival. I'm familiar with these knowledge gaps firsthand, because I've helped more than 18,000 panic-stricken clients deal with work-related issues. I've handled such emotionally charged workplace situations as: Bosses who swear, threaten, and even hit their employees. Foremen who order their staffers to operate under dangerous work conditions. Supervisors who sexually harass employees. Managers who punish workers for having children. Managers who won't give a worker time off to care for a dying parent. Executives who irrationally dislike certain staffers, and try to harass them into quitting. Companies that try to force out employees because of gender, race, or age. Bosses who risk destroying a company, with their out-of-control drug use or gambling. BEAT THE BOSS are easy-to-read, entertaining short stories which take a minute or two to read, but also provide accurate solutions, pulling back the curtain as to what really happens in the workplace. Every story ends with a question for the reader to answer: Did Allison just quit-or was she fired? Should Lori have gone straight to HR to complain about the sexual harassment? Can Jim be fired for trying to take home the chicken that fell on the floor, which his store considers garbage? When Bruce discovers the company that hired him lied about working conditions on his first day on the job, should he write a resignation letter or just walk away? Furthermore, with millions of Americans unemployed both now and in the foreseeable future, it's never been more important for everyone to educate themselves about how to hang onto their jobs, and about how to protect themselves if they're fired or forced to quit through no fault of their own.

For how much longer can Canada expect to get a free ride? With 9/11 and the international “war on terrorism,” the time has come to ask some hard questions. Should we continue to starve our military, reduce our humanitarian assistance, dilute our diplomacy, and absent ourselves from global intelligence-gathering? Can we expect to sit at the global table by virtue of our economic power without pursuing a foreign policy worthy of our history, geography, and diversity? Canada has been getting by on the cheap, writes Andrew Cohen in this timely, forceful, and insightful new book. Our reluctance to pay our own way has had a cost: it has eroded the pillars of our international stature. We are still trading on the reputation this country built two generations ago, but it is a reputation we no longer deserve. We claim to be engaged abroad, but for too long we have been a freeloader, trying to do the same for less, practising pinch-penny diplomacy and foreign policy on the cheap. Our capacity in these key areas has become glaringly inadequate, and now that weakness is compromising our ability to honour our traditional commitments overseas. The time is ripe for a thorough re-examination of our foreign policy, to affirm our values, to win the respect of our allies, to carry our weight. From the Hardcover edition.

NYPD Detective Alec MacAidan has always been good with weird. After all, his life has been a string of the unexplainable. But when an injured man gives him cryptic clues, then turns to dust in front of him, Alec's view on weird is changed forever. Cronin, a vampire Elder, has spent the last thousand years waiting for Alec. He'd been told his fated one would be a man wielding a shield, but he didn't expect him to be human, and he certainly didn't expect that shield to be a police badge.

Covens are fleeing with news of a vampire who has a talent like no other, hell-bent on unleashing the wrath of Death. Alec and Cronin are thrown into a world of weird Alec cannot imagine. What he learned in school of ancient pharaohs and Egyptian gods was far from the truth. Instead, he finds out firsthand that history isn't always what it seems.
