If you’ve been living on a different planet you might not know that Joan Rivers, the groundbreaking, award-winning, internationally renowned entertainment goddess, is opinionated—especially when it comes to the things she loathes. In her new laugh riot, I Hate Everyone… Starting With Me, the red carpet kibitzer draws from her vast number of experiences to share the people, places and things she can’t stand. Get ready for uproarious, uniquely Joan takes on dating rituals, funerals, lousy restaurants, First Ladies, hypocrites, Hollywood, overrated historical figures…she goes on and on. Joan lets everyone—including herself—have it in this one hundred percent honest and unabashedly hilarious love letter to the hater in all of us.


In the epic action-adventure film Snow White and the Huntsman, Snow White is the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman who was dispatched to kill her. Snow White and The Huntsman, Lily Blake's companion to the film of the same name, brings all the action and excitement of the big screen to the printed page. (Ages 12 and up)


Beautiful Catherine Bailey has been experiencing the ups and downs of single life long enough to know a great catch when she sees one. In other words, it doesn’t take her long to fall head over heels in love with her gorgeous new boyfriend, Lee…or to realize he was too good to be true. The flattering attentiveness Lee pretends in front of Catherine’s jealous girlfriends belies the erratic, controlling behavior she’s grown to fear, and to save herself, Catherine plots a daring, meticulous escape.

Four years later, though Lee is paying for his behavior behind bars, Catherine—now Cathy—is nonetheless obsessed with every lock and door, a compulsion noticed by her attractive neighbor, Stuart, a kind man who seeks her trust. But one day Cathy returns home and notices the subtle and alarming rearrangement of objects in her apartment, one of Lee’s favorite tricks of cruelty. Does this mean she’s finally going to pay for her perceived sins?

Utterly convincing in its portrayal of obsession, Elizabeth Haynes’ Into the Darkest Corner is an ingeniously structured and plotted tour de force of suspense that marks the arrival of a major new talent. 

In the capable hands of New York Times bestselling author Eric van Lustbader, counterespionage agent Jason Bourne has battled spies, terror plots and even his best friend. Now, in Robert Ludlum’s™ The Bourne Imperative, he faces his most fearsome enemy yet!

Jason Bourne has one thing in common with the mysterious wounded man he helped fish out of a frozen lake: amnesia. The stranger doesn’t know who he is, but rogue Mossad agent Rebeka thinks he’s a brutal jihadist. Before Bourne can learn the truth, the amnesiac is whisked away by the security team of the Core Energy corporation.

Meanwhile, Peter Marks and Soraya Moore have dragged their injured bodies back to work at the Treadstone intelligence operation. They find themselves saddled with a new operative, software savant Dick Richards, who has ties to the president—and murky connections to Core Energy.

While Peter and Soraya follow Richards to the door of billionaire nuclear energy magnate Tom Brick, Bourne and Rebeka desperately track down clues to the amnesiac’s identity and mission. But the vicious assassin known only as the Babylonian is already on their trail. Can Bourne survive long enough to thwart a global catastrophe? 

Bestselling author Sandra Brown presents Love is Murder, third book in the Thriller series comprised of heart-racing tales from thirty of the hottest voices in romantic suspense.

Go on vacation with Allison Brennan’s Lucy Kincaid, where she saves a man from drowning only to discover he’s in greater danger on land.

And Lee Child’s “I Heard a Romantic Story” puts a whole new spin on Love is Murder.

Throwing it all on the line, DeAngelo jets off to the Bahamas, where Peyton is celebrating her thirtieth birthday…and the risk pays off. For ten days, the pair is in paradise. But when the vacation ends, the two attorneys find themselves facing off against each other in court! Will it mean “case closed” for their new love?


Ophelia Missler and Solomon Bassett have been best friends before they hit their teens. Back in the day, Ophelia was a scrawny kid, but when she filled out, she instantly stole studly Solomon’s heart. Not that he’s let on to Ophelia about his feelings. If that’s ever going to change, time is running out. Ophelia is a successful businesswoman who wants a fairy-tale wedding, and she’s about to get one—to the wealthy and desirable Jonas Hinton. Is she in love with him? Well, career-obsessed Ophelia hasn’t ever given herself time for love. Now, as her nuptials draw closer, her thoughts are turning more and more to old buddy Solomon. It’s now or never…will they risk their hearts to find the true love that’s been staring them in the face?

At the should-be-tender age of twenty, Jamal Prince Perkins has traded in the high-profile, high-body-count life of a street soldier for that of a small businessman. But his thug instincts are still sharp—a good thing, because trouble follows him into his new life: romantic trouble, from a sassy spitfire named Poetry who’s five-feet-five of muscle, attitude and righteous indignation…family trouble, as his mom steadfastly refuses to leave the man who’s been beating her…and thug trouble with a capital T, when Prince’s mother becomes a pawn in a treacherous game to separate the man from his money. Prince has already lost too many of the people he loved. To save his family, he’ll have to become a street soldier once more.

Life looks beautiful for Denise Jackson. The 39-year-old financier lives the good life in a wealthy Dallas suburb with her husband, Jeff, and her lovely nine-year-old daughter, Deandra. But beneath the surface, things aren’t so rosy. Denise spends less time with Jeff than with her business partner, Nadine Collins—and what’s more, she knows Nadine and Jeff are having an affair. And why not? Theirs is only a marriage of convenience. Anyway, Denise herself is getting some on the side with her multimillionaire client, Greg Adams. Both women are desperately hiding secrets: Jeff isn’t Deandra’s father…but he is the father of the child Nadine is carrying! When the lies are exposed, all will have to pay the price for their twisted seduction.

The delicious and devilish Mink LaRue is the long-lost daughter of a Texas oilman…and if you buy that, she’s got a bridge to sell you. In reality, she’s a 20-year-old hooker, petty thief, gold-digging skank and natural born liar. And in Noire’s skillful hands, Mink’s dirty deeds and boudoir misadventures will leave you breathless.

As the Sexy Little Liar trilogy begins, Mink, on probation for check-kiting, is dabbling in pole dances and doing a bit of bedroom blackmail on the side. When she meets Dajuan, a Philly hustler looking to make the big move in the Big Apple, the maker finds herself the mark for the first time in her life. “Bad News LaRue” needs some good news, fast. And she finds some.

Sable Dominion, heiress to a Lone Star State oil fortune, disappeared in NYC 18 years ago, at the age of three. When Mink sees a missing person photo of her, she notices the striking resemblance—and hatches her biggest con ever. Soon she’s in Houston, where she’s flim-flammed half the hopeful family and slept with the rest. But Sable’s uncle, Suge Dominion, isn’t exactly Mr. Clean himself. And if it takes a liar to catch a liar, Mink LaRue may rue this day!
