Passion is in the cards for Sandra Chastain's hero Razor Cody--a man searching for revenge who ends up finding something far sweeter. Rachel Kimble has a feeling her life is about to change--so the knock on her front door, and the person behind it, are not totally unexpected. Razor Cody is a confident man with a stormy past and a mind set on vengeance: His only intention is to pass through Rachel's life like a warm Savannah breeze. But he's drawn to stay, intent on discovering what really brought them together. Razor Cody's not the sort to believe in fate, or visions, or love at first sight. What he does believe in is the way he feels when he lays eyes on beautiful, bewitching Rachel. But he has come to Savannah to settle a score, and falling for a lost lamb who speaks of destiny and dreams is not in his plans. And yet, no matter how he may try to shield his heart, when he discovers the kind of power their connection can bring, he'll do whatever it takes to keep Rachel safe--and in his arms. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.
A sly, insightful and wonderfully original book from one of Canada's most popular political analysts, Chantal Hébert, and one of Quebec's top political broadcasters, Jean Lapierre. Only the most fearless of political journalists would dare to open the old wounds of the 1995 Quebec referendum, a still-murky episode in Canadian history that continues to defy our understanding. The referendum brought one of the world's most successful democracies to the brink of the unknown, and yet Quebecers' attitudes toward sovereignty continue to baffle the country's political class. Interviewing 17 key political leaders from the duelling referendum camps, Hébert and Lapierre begin with a simple premise: asking what were these political leaders' plans if the vote had gone the other way. Even 2 decades later, their answers may shock you. And in asking an unexpected question, these veteran political observers cleverly expose the fractures, tensions and fears that continue to shape Canada today.

His long-suffering mother has died overnight, abandoning forty-year-old Jake, who is mute and, according to his neighbors, not quite right in the head.

"Morning Poemsis a sensational collection -- Robert Bly's best in many years. Inspired by the example of William Stafford, Bly decided to embark on the project of writing a daily poem: Every morning he would stay in bed until he had completed the day's work. These 'little adventures/In Morning longing,' as he calls them, address classic poetic subjects (childhood, the seasons, death and heaven) in a way that capitalizes fully on the pun in the book's title. These are morning poems, full of the delight and mystery of waking in a new day, and they also do their share of mourning, elegizing the deceases and capturing the 'moment of sorror before creation.' Some of the poems are dialogues where unconventional speakers include mice, maple trees, bundles of grain, the body, the 'oldest mind' and the soul. A particularly moving sequence involves Bly's imaginative transactions with a great and unlikely precursor, Wallace Stevens. The whole is a fascinating and original book from one of our most fascinating authors." -- David Lehman
