Master of romantic fiction Catherine Cookson is world renowned for her enthralling tales of love that triumphs over impossible odds. In Kate Hannigan, her very first novel, Catherine Cookson introduces us to the enduring story of her most charismatic heroine. The moment he lays eyes on Kate, Dr. Rodney Prince is enchanted. He senses in this poverty-stricken patient an intelligence and warmth that's completely unexpected. His own wife, living in the oblivion of velvet cushions and lavish dinner parties, seems crude by comparison. Though they meet only briefly then retreat to their separate worlds, the image of Kate leaves an indelible mark upon his mind. Rodney knows that Kate's spirit has survived life-long suffering at the hands of men. Her father, an embittered dock worker, directed his violent rages toward Kate and her mother. At age eighteen Kate fell victim to a smooth-talking seducer and became the unwed mother of a child she later compromised her dignity to support. Such circumstances only deepen Rodney's desire to rescue Kate and overturn the codes of a society that serve to keep them apart. As the kindhearted Dr. Prince unintentionally wins over the heart of Kate's fatherless daughter, he and Kate begin to acknowledge that the gap between rich and poor might not be so great after all. Available now in the United States, Kate Hannigan remains a timeless tribute to romantic love. England's late, great Catherine Cookson has spun the unforgettable tale of a wealthy man caught in a loveless marriage, a young woman trapped in the slums, and their defiance of the mores of Edwardian society.

Get on the case with Kathryn Dance.Three novels featuring California Bureau of Investigations body language expert Agent Kathryn Dance from internationally bestselling suspense master and seven-time Edgar Award nominee Jeffery Deaver, plus an excerpt from the next Kathryn Dance novel, XO (publishing June 2012). The Cold MoonOn a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering over New York City, two people are brutally murdered. The death scenes are marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks that investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer--who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker--has more murders planned in the hours to come. With Rhyme's longtime love Amelia Sachs now busy as the lead detective on a homicide case of her own, it will take the expertise of Agent Kathryn Dance to stop the Watchmaker killings and unravel the trail of a diabolical criminal masterwork in the making.The Sleeping DollDaniel Pell, the "Son of Manson," is serving a life sentence for the brutal murders of the wealthy Croyton family, a crime mirroring those perpetrated by Charles Manson in the 1960s, and that left behind only one survivor: the youngest Croyton daughter, who, because she was in bed hidden by her toys, was dubbed "the Sleeping Doll." When Agent Kathryn Dance is called in to interrogate Pell in connection with a recent murder, the psychological jousting match that ensues goes terribly wrong, and Pell escapes. But far from simply fleeing, Pell turns on his pursuers--and other innocents--for reasons Dance and her colleagues can't discern. The only person who can help her find the pattern in Pell's rampage is the now-teenage girl who lay as though asleep through that terrible night.Roadside CrossesThe Monterey Peninsula is rocked by fear when a killer begins to leave roadside crosses beside local highways--not in memoriam, but as announcements of his intentions to kill. And he kills in particularly horrific and efficient ways: using personal details about his victims that they've carelessly posted in blogs and on social networking websites. Agent Kathryn Dance traces the leads to Travis Brigham, a troubled teenager whose role in a fatal car accident has inspired vicious attacks against him on a popular blog, The Chilton Report. To get to Brigham, Dance must overcome speechifying politicians, paranoid parents, and the blogger himself, James Chilton, whose willingness to derail the case--and possibly Dance's career--soon forces Dance to take desperate measures.XO (excerpt)Country-pop ingÉnue Kayleigh Towne's career is reaching new heights with her huge hit single "Your Shadow"--but increased fame is also bringing unwanted attention to the young singer.

Whether you have a puppy or an adult dog, a home- or sleep-wrecker (or both), whether your dog has ingrained bad manners or simply hasn't learned any good ones yet-Kathy Santo shines a light into the dark bedlam of life with an unruly dog. The secret of her ebullient and innovative guide to training: dogs are individuals, and any dog's nature depends far less on his breed or pedigree than most training methods suppose. In easy steps, you can quickly determine your dog's "personality"-the interplay of prime motivations, energy level, work ethic, and emotional profile-to tailor a regimen optimally suited to his learning needs. Where "one-size" programs typically founder in canine chaos and human frustration, the Santo method carries you past failure: even when your dog doesn't respond, your understanding of him deepens and leads you to a better strategy. This unique interactive approach-based on the author's twenty years of experience-not only speeds canine learning but also lifts training from a temporary chore to an increasingly relaxed way of life. The result is a lifetime of improving obedience-an ever more confident and happy dog, and an ever more gratifying relationship for you both.
