Alice aux pays des merveilles de Benjamin Lacombe

Alice

 

 

Les Aventures d’Alice au pays des merveilles (titre original : Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), fréquemment abrégé en Alice au pays des merveilles, est un roman écrit en 1865 par Lewis Carroll (nom de plume de Charles Lutwidge Dodgson). À l’heure de commémorer les 150 ans du roman, cette très belle édition inédite, traduite par Henri Parisot, propose une immersion singulière : au fil du récit, les images s’imprègnent d’une envoûtante fantaisie baroque. Grâce à différentes techniques (gouache, huile et aquarelle), Benjamin Lacombe – auteur phare de la nouvelle illustration française – offre une dimension graphique surréaliste et subversive à un grand classique de la littérature anglaise.

When I was Yours by Samantha Towle

When i was yours

“Marry me.”
“What?” I stared back at him, unblinking.
He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. “I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me.”

What’s an eighteen-year-old girl who was madly in love with her nineteen-year-old boyfriend say?

Of course, I said yes.

Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel to the sounds of “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. Not the best omen. I get that now.

Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why.

I haven’t seen him since. Not in ten long years.

Now, he’s here, standing before me. Looking at me with nothing but hurt and hatred in his eyes, he wants answers.

Answers I can’t give.

Forgetting August by J L Berg

forgetting august

She can forgive, but can she forget?

Some days, Everly still thinks she sees him. In the food court at the mall, or in a car speeding past as the light changes. It only lasts a second, but when it happens, she slips back to a time when she was ruled-and nearly ruined-by August Kincaid. And it doesn’t matter that she’s moved on, that she’s about to marry another man. In those moments the only thing she can do to regain control is take a deep breath and remind herself that August can’t hurt her-because he’s in a coma. Except that he’s not anymore.

August is awake. With no memories, he sets out to solve the mystery of his lost life. He unearths a photograph of a beautiful redhead named Everly and knows instinctively that she’s the key. But when he finds her, the August she describes is more monster than man.

Tortured by the thought of having hurt her, August wants only to become the man Everly deserves. As the new August emerges, Everly glimpses the person she first fell in love with. But can she trust that this August is real? When the final secret of their shared past is revealed, one of them will make a choice that changes their future forever . . .

 

Wild Boys After Dark : Logan by Melissa Foster

wild boys after dark logan

Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace.

Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand.

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.

Built by Jay Crownover

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn’t matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn’t return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.

 

Goddess of War by K N Lee

Goddess of war

From the award-winning author of the international bestsellers Rise of the Flame, and The Chronicles of Koa series comes Goddess of War, an epic fantasy series set in a world of wizards, warriors, and a battle between dueling gods.

After escaping the Vault, a prison for gods, twin siblings Preeti and Vineet make a desperate journey to another world.

The Abyss, also known as the human world.

The Abyss is nothing like they imagined, and soon they find that they may like it more than the world of the gods, especially when relationships form with their human friends.

Three years is all they have to hide from the Goddess of Law, a woman determined to either imprison or kill the twins and take their spot as rulers of the gods.

The human world will never be the same with the Goddess of War and the God of Peace hiding in their land.

Preeti and Vineet are thrust into a war for more than their lives, but their souls, and those of the the humans they have grown to love. The Goddess of Law will stop at nothing to destroy them, even if that means tearing the human world apart.
