The Boys in the Boat

For readers of Laura Hillenbrand’s *Seabiscuit* and *Unbroken* , the dramatic story of the American rowing team that stunned the world at Hitler’s 1936 Berlin Olympics
*
*Daniel James Brown’s robust book tells the story of the University of Washington’s 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

The emotional heart of the story lies with one rower, Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not for glory, but to regain his shattered self-regard and to find a place he can call home. The crew is assembled by an enigmatic coach and mentored by a visionary, eccentric British boat builder, but it is their trust in…

The Boudoir Bible

A comprehensive and instructional guide to the new sexual landscape, covering ”new territories” such as bondage, role playing, and sex toys that would make your parents blush. Since the publication of The Joy of Sex in 1972, the sexual landscape’s boundaries have been expanded to include a host of practices that are unthinkable in that classic tome. Although it also covers the basics, The Boudoir Bible fills those niches missing from other sex guides nicely, with full, elaborated chapters on rope bondage, restraints of sound and sight, erotic flagellation, and the stimulation of new erogenous zones, among innumerable other offerings. Well-researched, The Boudoir Bible is written from a joyful, sex-positive point of view. Going beyond the ”lovemaking” of older guides, this witty and uninhibited tome expands the sexual act to encompass ”verboten” topics, with chapters entitled ”The Genital Gym,” ”Nipple Tease,” ”Male Ejaculation Control,” and ”The Anthems of Anal Sex.” Illustrated by the renowned artist François Berthoud, whose provocative creations have graced both Prada campaigns and museum exhibitions, The Boudoir Bible provides a fresh view of sexuality in the twenty-first century.

The Book of Truths

A little truth is a dangerous thing. A lot could kill us all. The Nightstalkers are back, and the world needs them now more than ever.
When a real-life truth serum, a military cabal bent on launching a preemptive strike against America’s enemies, and the nuclear football – which contains the information the President needs to launch the nation’s missiles – all converge, the Nightstalkers suit up for another deadly mission. Joining forces with the Cellar, the covert world’s police force, the team might be mankind’s last hope.
A bombed-out neighborhood in Pakistan. A strip mall in suburban Virginia. A decommissioned ICBM silo in Nebraska. The highest-security location inside the White House. *The Book of Truths* hits all the hotspots and roars to a breathless showdown that could mean the beginning of the end for everyone.

Black Code

Cyberspace is all around us. We depend on it for everything we do. We have reengineered our business, governance, and social relations around a planetary network unlike any before it. But there are dangers looming, and malign forces are threatening to transform this extraordinary domain.

In Black Code, Ronald J. Deibert, a leading expert on digital technology, security, and human rights, lifts the lid on cyberspace and shows what’s at stake for Internet users and citizens. As cyberspace develops in unprecedented ways, powerful agents are scrambling for control. Predatory cyber criminal gangs such as Koobface have made social media their stalking ground. The discovery of Stuxnet, a computer worm reportedly developed by Israel and the United States and aimed at Iran’s nuclear facilities, showed that state cyberwar is now a very real possibility. Governments and corporations are in collusion and are setting the rules of the road behind closed doors.

This is not the way it was supposed to be. The Internet’s original promise of a global commons of shared knowledge and communications is now under threat.

Drawing on the first-hand experiences of one of the most important protagonists in the battle — the Citizen Lab and its global network of frontline researchers, who have spent more than a decade cracking cyber espionage rings and uncovering attacks on citizens and NGOs worldwide — Black Code takes readers on a fascinating journey into the battle for cyberspace. Thought-provoking, compelling, and sometimes frightening, it is a wakeup call to citizens who have come to take the Internet for granted. Cyberspace is ours, it is what we make of it, Deibert argues, and we need to act now before it slips through our grasp.

Bared for Her Bear

Wylde Bears, 1
February “Ary” Felina, an ocelot shifter with a weight complex, knows going out on her dirty thirty birthday is a bad idea, especially when she ends up in Charlie Wylde’s bed. The big, powerful alpha bear shifter is known in the town of Sweet Water for never having the same female twice. But that one-night stand turns into a disaster when the condom breaks.
When Charlie sees Ary for the first time he wants her. The bear in him needs to mark and claim her until everyone knows she is his. When she tells him she is pregnant and he’s the father, he has no choice but to step up and take care of her and his baby. It was only supposed to be that one night of pleasure, so when a jackal shifter comes sniffing around her, can Charlie show him that a bear always takes care of what’s his?

Bad Idea

*Bad Idea*: Some mistakes are worth making.
Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling supersquare, straitlaced superheroes, hiding from his fans, and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams. Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnership.
Against their better judgment, they fall victim to chemistry, and what starts as infatuation quickly grows tender and terrifying. With Silas’s help, Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan: sketching out Scratch, a “very graphic novel” that will either make his name or wreck his career. But even a smash can’t save their world if Trip retreats into his mild-mannered rut, leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can’t escape.
What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it safe?

Are There Really Men Like That: Marge

Are There Really Men Like That: Marge by Patty Marie
Jen is best friends with Marge; the wife of her husband, Ron’s best friend Jerry. Ron and Jerry have been friends since middle school and Jen and Marge for more than five years. One day while leaving Marge and Jerry’s house, Jen overhears conversation that revels Marge has cuckolded her husband.
“‘The cuckold wants to know if you’re bringing me home or are we going to your place tonight,” was the line that Jen overheard and it brought her up short. Is it for real? What should she do? Just what the hell is a “cuckold?”
Her husband Ron has to look it up online. The definition causes Jen to ask, “Are there really men like that?” They are amazed that that not only the concept of a willing cuckold exists but that there is such a thing as a “Cuckold Community.” Ron is of the opinion that she misunderstood or that if she didn’t it isn’t any of their business. However, circumstances cause Jen to confirm she didn’t misunderstand anything and it is very much for real.
After she discovered it was for real she confronts Marge and listens with disbelief as Marge explains how she ended up cuckolding her husband.
Marge reveals her wild sexuality in college, a past that Jen never knew about and then goes into detail about her first three dates with Mark, that man who helped her cuckold Jerry. What’s most shocking of all is Jerry’s complacency and culpability in the story.
It’s this last that Jen finds hard to believe, but in the end she must.

Conner Sharp, a rogue wolf and murder detective, was supposed to be an alpha – until his pack betrayed him and left him for dead. Then he met Seth Alwen, his new partner, and things started looking up. The beautiful seer lusts after him – even if he keeps an infuriating number of secrets.
But something dangerous is stirring inside Conner. The urges of an alpha wolf he buried years ago are rising to the surface. Whenever Seth is near, the beast threatens to unleash itself on the man Conner cares for the most – the man who might be his long lost mate.
Seth never thought he’d shack up with a shifter, but Conner’s allure is impossible to deny. How will his boyfriend feel about Seth’s carefully guarded past, and the secrets that could rip their relationship apart?
Can Seth deal with the new alpha side of his lover while confiding in Conner what their future holds?
