Finished Last Week
Moonlight Sins by Jennifer L Armentrout

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers the unforgettable story of a woman whose new life has just begun—but may end in murder… 

Julia Hughes has always played it safe until she learned a very painful lesson. Now Julia’s starting over with a job in the Louisiana bayou—and a scorching encounter with a stranger, only to discover he’s Lucian de Vincent… her new employer. The de Vincent brothers share a massive fortune and a dark reputation. Julia cares for their troubled sister, but a menacing presence in the mansion—and the ever-present temptation of Lucian—prove dangerously distracting.

Lucian’s grandmother claimed de Vincent men fall in love once—and hard. Apparently, it’s Lucian’s turn. Julia’s compassionate care of his twin makes Lucian want to lay himself bare. But some secrets are better for Julia not to know.

The recent “suicide” of Lucian’s father is the latest in a string of deaths on the estate. Someone is eliminating the de Vincents. And the best way to get to Lucian may be through Julia…

Le Journal Rouge Lily R. Davis

« Avec quelle force me battrais-je encore pour quelques mots ? Des mots… Des mots que nous jetions sur le papier ; une drôle de façon de lever le poing ; de hurler. Des mots pour se révolter. Des mots pour tout changer ! »

Nous sommes en 1965, à Washington.

Tout le monde reprend en chœur les refrains des Beatles et les slogans lors des marches citoyennes. La jeunesse se soulève contre la ségrégation, contre la Guerre. La jeunesse veut aimer sans contraintes. C’est la génération hippie. Rose a passé des années dans un pensionnat pour jeunes filles et si elle regarde de loin cette nouvelle liberté, elle ne sent pas le droit d’y plonger. Orpheline, recueillie par un oncle Colonel dans les Marines et basé à Saigon, Rose se sent prise aux pièges. Elle invente alors Max. Un pseudonyme derrière lequel elle se cache pour écrire des chroniques dans un journal universitaire.
Alec est un activiste. Il se bat pour un monde en paix, pour toutes les vérités. Il se bat surtout pour mettre fin à cette guerre, au Vietnam, qui emporte trop de jeunes soldats. Avec ses amis, ils travaillent pour un petit journal clandestin. Le Aldous. De communautés hippies en sit-in, il a toujours un stylo à la main et la rage au cœur.
C’est la passion de l’écriture qui les réunira. C’est pour l’autre qu’ils se dépasseront. Ensemble, avec le Aldous et cette jeunesse éprise de liberté, d’égalité et de paix, ils brandiront la plus grandes de leurs armes : les mots. De manifestations en désobéissances civils, dans une société qui refuse encore de les émanciper, ils se battront pour leurs droits, pour leurs lois, pour leur vie. Malgré les dangers de la vérité et ceux qui voudront les faire taire, malgré l’ombre de la conscription et de cette guerre qui finira par les rattraper, Alec et Rose deviendront la voix de ceux qui ne peuvent plus parler. Sans jamais cesser de s’aimer.

« Continue de te battre pour toi, pour moi, pour les autres. Continue de te battre aussi fort que je t’aime et rien dans ce monde ne pourra jamais te résister. »

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockart

From the author of the unforgettable New York Times bestseller We Were Liars comes a masterful new psychological suspense novel–the story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.

Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.

“Haunting, sophisticated. . . . Twisty and well-told.” —The Wall Street Journal

“An ambitious novel with an engaging voice, a clever plot and some terrific writing.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable.” –John Green, #1 New York Timesbestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars

Okami by Renee Ahdieh

At the close of Flame in the Mist, to end a bloodbath between the Black Clan and imperial soldiers, Ōkami allows himself to be taken prisoner by Prince Raiden, Mariko’s betrothed. For someone who doesn’t believe in heroes, it’s a surprising choice: to trade his life for the lives of his friends and the one he loves. For he will surely be killed when he arrives in the Imperial City. But he decides if his life is the cost of love, it may not be too high a price after all.

 

 

 

Yumi by Renee Ahdieh

When Yumi receives word of the battle led against her brother and the Black Clan by Prince Raiden and the Dragon of Kai, and of Ōkami’s sacrifice, she resents the bars of her gilded cage all the more. She’s tired of being a sheltered bird, protected in the Hanami. What Yumi really wants is to strike a blow against all the forces that control her life. The time has come.

On Deck
Eclore de Jade Rivers

Lectrice acharnée, boxeuse à ses heures perdues et lycéenne à peine studieuse… Abélia se sent en décalage avec les jeunes de son âge.

Heureusement pour elle, sa nature discrète lui permet de rester à l’écart de l’agitation de ses camarades. Et surtout, loin des problèmes.

Le jour où M. Valverde, son nouveau professeur de littérature, arrive au lycée, Abby est certaine qu’entre eux le courant ne passera pas.

Mais au contraire, cette rencontre l’électrise et le contrôle qu’elle exerce tant bien que mal sur ses émotions vole bientôt en éclats.

Conscients que le lien qui se tisse entre eux est interdit, tous deux vont s’efforcer de garder leurs distances. Mais pourront-ils lutter longtemps contre leurs sentiments ?

 

Moonlight Seduction by Jennifer L Armentrout

The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel…

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up… and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman… one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

Six de Coeur de L.H Cosway

Approchez et faites la connaissance de Jay Fields, illusionniste, mentaliste et manipulateur.
Je réfléchis en trois dimensions quand vous pensez en lignes droites.
Je vous montre une table et vous croyez voir une chaise.
Fumée, miroirs, tours de passe-passe… Je détourne votre attention. Je fais mes tours et vous abuse.
Mais surtout, je vous en mets plein les yeux.
On pense que j’ai tué un homme mais je n’ai rien fait.
Cela fait partie de mon plan.
La vengeance. Voilà ce que je désire. Pour moi, et pour elle.
Pour nous six.
Elle ne se souvient pas de moi, mais pourtant, elle est la clé de tout. Ma récompense au bout du chemin – enfin… si je parviens à me retenir de l’approcher.
Allez, choisissez une carte. Entrez et assistez au spectacle. Regardez mes mains, scrutez-les avec attention et oubliez ce qui se passe à côté… pendant que je détruis votre univers depuis la scène, juste ici, sous les projecteurs.

 

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered before her eyes. On that day, the Kaiser took Theodosia’s family, her land, and her name. Theo was crowned Ash Princess–a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisoner.

For ten years Theo has been a captive in her own palace. She’s endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser and his court. She is powerless, surviving in her new world only by burying the girl she was deep inside.

Then, one night, the Kaiser forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword. And power isn’t always won on the battlefield.

For ten years, the Ash Princess has seen her land pillaged and her people enslaved. That all ends here.

Wild hunger by Chloe Neill

In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill’s spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she’s a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he’s prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.
