Ramping Up: A Mavrick Allstar Novel

by Zoe Dawson

The world of extreme sports just got a little steamier! Zoe Dawson's pulse-pounding, emotional series follows the wily young female agents of Mavrick Allstars as they chase their dreams--and meet the chiseled athletes who make them come true. Helena "Lena" Mavrick is ready to prove that she can play with the big boys. Working at her father's internationally renowned agency, Mavrick Allstars, Lena sets her sights on one of the most coveted phenoms out there: a twenty-four-year-old surfer caught ripping it in a viral skateboarding video. Signing him would be a huge win--and his marketing appeal isn't the only thing that makes Lena's heart skip a beat. Trouble is, fraternizing with the client is against company policy. Professional surfer Gunner Smith lives under the absolute control of his coach--until he takes the ultimate risk and starts over as a skateboarder. Gunner swore he wouldn't give up his freedom again, but Lena's out-of-the-blue offer makes him think long and hard. She's smart, she's bold, she's got sponsors lined up around the corner--plus she's drop-dead gorgeous. He's just not sure his coach will let him get away that easily, because he's not just Gunner's coach, he's also his father. Gunner is used to hiding his tortured past. But when his steamy affair with Lena threatens their future, he must decide whether he will sacrifice everything for the woman who's stolen his heart. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Rampant

by Diana Peterfreund

Forget everything you ever knew about unicorns . . . Real unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they've been extinct for a hundred and fifty years. Or not. Astrid had always scoffed at her eccentric mother's stories about killer unicorns. But when one of the monsters attacks her boyfriend--thereby ruining any chance of him taking her to the prom--Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter at the ancient cloisters the hunters have used for centuries. However, at the cloisters all is not what it seems. Outside, the unicorns wait to attack. And within, Astrid faces other, unexpected threats: from the crumbling, bone-covered walls that vibrate with a terrible power to the hidden agendas of her fellow hunters to--perhaps most dangerously of all--her growing attraction to a handsome art student . . . an attraction that could jeopardize everything.

Rampage: A Novel

by Justin Scott

In the thirtieth anniversary edition of this classic thriller, "Rampage gives a stunning twist to the expression 'war on crime.' The dizzying action ranges from Manhattan's towering spires to the labyrinths of the city's underworld; its plot has the speed and impact of a jackhammer.” —David Morrell Chris Taggart is a ruthless, driven, real estate entrepreneur whose buildings have changed the skyline of New York. Young, handsome, irresistible to women, Taggart has won it all with his bare hands and fierce ambition. But his dazzling success can never erase the bitter memory of his father's death at the hands of the mob—and now Taggart sets out to use his wealth and power to destroy the men whom he holds responsible. It is a secret vendetta—a war, in fact—that Taggart launches single-handedly against the Five Families of New York. It pits him against some of the toughest men in organized crime—as well as his own brother, a crusading assistant U.S. attorney, one of the strike force prosecutors. Taggart risks his fortune, his reputation, finally his life, to get revenge; only to find that he has instead become one of them, that his triumph over criminals has turned him into a more dangerous threat than any mob boss in New York.

Ramones (Band Records #1)

by Joe Padilla Soledad Romero

Los Ramones explicados a tus hijos. La increíble historia de cuatro amigos que se convirtieron en leyendas del punk rock. Si hay una historia universal de superación esa es la de los Ramones. Y sirve y gusta a todo el mundo. Cuatro inadaptados de Queens, con serios problemas cognitivos, mentales y sociales, lograron el éxito sin saber apenas tocar un instrumento. ¿Su secreto? El amor por la música y la cultura de serie B. Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee y Tommy Ramone son los nombres artísticos de estos cuatro «hermanos» del barrio de Forest Hills, en Queens, que montaron en 1974 su primera formación sin saber que estaban a la vanguardia musical mundial. Tras dos años de tocar en garitos de mala muerte y medio triunfar en la sala de moda neoyorquina, el CBGB, los fichó la discográfica Sire para grabar su primer álbum, el homónimo Ramones. De ahí al mítico concierto en la sala Roundhouse de Londres enjulio de 1976 mediaron unos pocos meses. Podría decirse que dieron el pistoletazo mundial al punk: recibieron en el backstage a grupos que por entonces empezaban, como los Clash o los Sex Pistols. Los inicios de la banda, hasta su primera consagración, están contados en este álbum al alcance de todos los niños y mayores. Una historia de amistad y superación como nunca la has visto. Y más cool que nunca.
