True, the title of "best nurse in Missouri" had been given to Erin Sullivan as a joke. But she was a dedicated professional who took excellent care of all her patients, even Joshua Cade, whom she hated with a passion. Joshua was handsome, wealthy, and ambitious--and Erin would never forgive him for what he'd done to her family. Never in a million years. Yet now that Joshua was in the hospital, Erin got to know him as she'd never known him before, and she found herself drawn to him. Why couldn't she be attracted to Dr. Brent Morgan, who adored her? How could she possibly want the one man in the world who had ruthlessly deprived her mother of her home?
The best is worth waiting for... Surry McDaniel loves designing beautiful clothes. In fact, it's the only thing she truly loves. Clothes can never fail her, the way people can. But when she's accused of stealing designs, Surry risks losing the life she's spent years building. The only person who can help is Ian Duncan, a political strategist who knows how to fix bad PR and who hasn't been able to stop thinking about Surry since they met. But Surry has kept him-and everyone else-at arm's length as long as they've known each other. Helping her would be a risk, but the more Ian gets to know Surry, the more he knows that while she needs him, he needs her even more.
Invasion seemed like a good idea at the time, but the catlike Kzin should have been polite to those apes from Earth. Humans know that there's more than one way to skin a cat -- even a Kzin.
Karen Lord's debut novel, the multiple-award-winning Redemption in Indigo, announced the appearance of a major new talent--a strong, brilliantly innovative voice fusing Caribbean storytelling traditions and speculative fiction with subversive wit and incisive intellect. Compared by critics to such heavyweights as Nalo Hopkinson, China Miéville, and Ursula K. Le Guin, Lord does indeed belong in such select company--yet, like them, she boldly blazes her own trail. Now Lord returns with a second novel that exceeds the promise of her first. The Best of All Possible Worlds is a stunning science fiction epic that is also a beautifully wrought, deeply moving love story. A proud and reserved alien society finds its homeland destroyed in an unprovoked act of aggression, and the survivors have no choice but to reach out to the indigenous humanoids of their adopted world, to whom they are distantly related. They wish to preserve their cherished way of life but come to discover that in order to preserve their culture, they may have to change it forever. Now a man and a woman from these two clashing societies must work together to save this vanishing race--and end up uncovering ancient mysteries with far-reaching ramifications. As their mission hangs in the balance, this unlikely team--one cool and cerebral, the other fiery and impulsive--just may find in each other their own destinies . . . and a force that transcends all. "This fascinating and thoughtful science fiction novel breaks out of the typical conflict-centered narrative paradigm to examine adaptation, social change, and human relationships. I've not read anything quite like it, which makes it that rare beast: a true original."--Kate Elliott, author of the Crown of Stars series and the Spiritwalker TrilogyFrom the Hardcover edition.

"John is the funniest man on four wheels." -ROBIN WILLIAMS. "Screw the critics. I love Callahan. His cartoons are like tongue-kissing your grandma.

Few authors have had careers as successful as that of Connie Willis. Inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame and recently awarded the title of Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Willis is still going strong. Her smart, heartfelt fiction runs the gamut from screwball comedy to profound tragedy, combining dazzling plot twists, cutting-edge science, and unforgettable characters. From a near future mourning the extinction of dogs to an alternate history in which invading aliens were defeated by none other than Emily Dickinson; from a madcap convention of bumbling quantum physicists in Hollywood to a London whose Underground has become a storehouse of intangible memories both foul and fair--here are the greatest stories of one of the greatest writers working in any genre today. All ten of the stories gathered here are Hugo or Nebula award winners--some even have the distinction of winning both. With a new Introduction by the author and personal afterwords to each story--plus a special look at three of Willis's unique public speeches--this is unquestionably the collection of the season, a book that every Connie Willis fan will treasure, and, to those unfamiliar with her work, the perfect introduction to one of the most accomplished and best-loved writers of our time.Praise for Connie Willis "A novelist who can plot like Agatha Christie and whose books possess a bounce and stylishness that Preston Sturges might envy."--The Washington Post "One of America's finest writers . . . Willis can tell a story so packed with thrills, comedy, drama and a bit of red herring that the result is apt to satisfy the most discriminating, and hungry, reader."--The Denver Post "A wit with a common touch who's read more great books, and makes better use of them in her work, than two or three lit professors put together."--Newsday "A national treasure."--San Antonio Express-News "Willis can tell a story like no other. . . . One of her specialties is sparkling, rapid-fire dialogue; another, suspenseful plotting; and yet another, dramatic scenes so fierce that they burn like after-images in the reader's memory."--The Village Voice "Willis's fiction is one of the most intelligent delights of our genre."--Locus

When Rona Jaffe's superb page-turner was first published in 1958, it changed contemporary fiction forever. Some readers were shocked, but millions more were electrified when they saw themselves reflected in its story of five young employees of a New York publishing company. Almost sixty years later, The Best of Everythingremains touchingly-and sometimes hilariously-true to the personal and professional struggles women face in the city. There's Ivy League Caroline, who dreams of graduating from the typing pool to an editor's office; naïve country girl April, who within months of hitting town reinvents herself as the woman every man wants on his arm; and Gregg, the free-spirited actress with a secret yearning for domesticity. Jaffe follows their adventures with intelligence, sympathy, and prose as sharp as a paper cut.

Alicia Black Sullivan swore to never repeat the mistakes of her father, the Reverend Curtis Black: she would never tell lies, she would never break any promises. And most important of all, when she got married, it would be for good. Alicia really does love her husband, Phillip, the assistant pastor of her father's church. She just happens to love money--and the things it can buy--as well. Alicia was born to the good life, she's entitled to the best, and she'll do anything to get it. Even if it means piling up thousands of dollars in debt. Even if it means denying to everyone--even herself--that her love of shopping has gotten way out of control. Even if, deep down, she knows a whopper of an emotional bill is coming due. And all the regrets in the world won't change the fact that she may be more like her infamous father than she could have imagined--or feared.
