A modern love story with a Jane Austen twist...

Marine biologist Cassie Boulton likes her coffee with cream and her literature with happy endings. Her favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, but Cassie has no patience when a modern-day Mr. Darcy appears in her lab.

Silent and aloof, Calder Westing III doesn't seem to offer anything but a famous family name. But there is more to Calder than meets the eye, and he can't get enough of Cassie Boulton. Especially after one passionate night by the sea. But Cassie keeps her distance. Frustrated by Cassie's evasions, Calder tells her about his feelings the only way she'll let him--by rewriting her favorite book, with the two of them in the roles of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. It's up to Cassie to supply the ending...

Praise for The Man Who Loved Pride & Prejudice:
This is the liveliest romp through an established tale you'll find on the romance shelves! --Best Romance Stories
Smart characters, lovely setting, excellent dialogue and rocking fine writing make this juicy romance a winner. --Bookfoolery and Babble

Martyrdom: The Coloring Book

Martyrdom: The Coloring Book
$16.99

The lives of the saints are filled with inspiring, life-changing moments, but the deaths of the martyrs are where you'll find the "Oh, hell no!" moments of history. This adult (very adult, as the body count will quickly indicate) coloring book gives aspiring crayon and paper artists the chance to hone their craft while also buffing up their knowledge of Catholic history and legends. Each intricately detailed illustration from acclaimed graphic artist Julia Gfrörer leaves plenty of room for interpretation. And the attending stories will go down pretty easily at cocktail hours as well.

Miss Lucy Pym, a popular English psychologist, is guest lecturer at a physical training college. The year's term is nearly over, and Miss Pym -- inquisitive and observant -- detects a furtiveness in the behavior of one student during a final exam. She prevents the girl from cheating by destroying her crib notes.

"This is a fresh take on the American road story, filled with people and ideas we rarely get to see onstage...It offers two seriously rich roles for women, each with important things worth singing about...Miss You Like Hell is a powerful example of what musicals do best: explore the unprotected border where individual needs and social issues intermix." --Jesse Green, New York Times

A troubled teenager and her estranged mother--an undocumented Mexican immigrant on the verge of deportation--embark on a road trip and strive to mend their frayed relationship along the way. Combined with the musical talent of Erin McKeown, Hudes artfully crafts a story of the barriers and the bonds of family, while also addressing the complexities of immigration in today's America.

Equality starts early, and it begins at home.

As soon as girls are big enough to flip through a board book, they can understand the concept that girls are equal to boys.

From encouraging girls to use their voice and to support other girls to showing them that beauty is on the inside to reminding them that no woman is free until all women are free, there are big lessons here, in a small and appealing package.
