Lost to the darkness, Fuery wages a daily war against the corruption that lives within him, constantly in danger of slipping into the black abyss and becoming the monster all elves fear. Work as an assassin gives him purpose, but what reason is there to go on when he killed the light of his life—his fated mate? Shaia has spent forty-two centuries mourning her mate. Tired and worn down, she agrees to wed a male of her family’s choosing, following tradition that has always bound her as a female and hoping she will be able to gain just a little freedom in return. But as she resigns herself to being the mate of a male she could never love, fate places an old friend in her path—one who tells her that her lost love is alive. Will Shaia find the courage to break with tradition and leave the elf kingdom in search of her mate? And as a ray of light pierces his soul again, can Fuery find the strength to win his battle against the darkness or will it devour him and that light of their forbidden love forever?

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Felicity Heaton presents: Taken by a Dragon (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 7) Possessed by a need to save a beautiful Amazon warrior from the vision he witnessed, Loke snatched her from the midst of the battle between the Third and Fifth realm of the demons, and carried her to his home deep in the black mountains of Hell to protect her. But as the fierce little female awakens, he finds she’s anything but grateful, and his dragon instincts roar to life to warn she might be more to him than an enemy—she might be his fated female. Anais remembers meeting a handsome warrior in the heat of battle, a man who was her enemy but who looked at her with eyes that held dark heat and wicked promises. When she wakes to find that same dragon shifter has taken her captive, desire is the last thing on her mind, but escaping him to return to Archangel, the hunter organisation she works for, sounds less than appealing when he reveals the reason he took her—to stop her from dying. Can Loke protect Anais from the dangers of his realm and how far will he go to save her from the future he keeps witnessing? Can Anais resist the fierce attraction that burns between them as hot as fire and stay true to Archangel or will her heart be taken by the dragon?

Go to earth. Find a woman. Bring her back. Simple. The Emperor's Shadow, Xaandryn, is not a warrior. He's something else, whatever else, the Emperor needs him to be. An assassin, and, it seems… now he's a delivery boy. Sent to earth to retrieve the Lady Jessica's sick sister, he's anticipating an easy trip and, if he spends a little time getting to know the local culture… well, that's just a perk of the job. Right? Human women though are endlessly fascinating, especially Jac Wright, the sick lady's nurse. He'd thought the warriors who'd fallen for human women had defective genes, that there was something wrong in their makeup that allowed them to fall prey to their human mates. But Jac is… something else. Tiny. Delicate. Beautiful. When his mission goes sideways, and an attack puts a couple of them in danger, he escapes earth with not one, but two human women in his care. After all… she's only one tiny little woman. What could possibly go wrong? Apparently… everything. He's hot. Gorgeous. And a total liar... When the hot 'doctor' who arrives to see her sick charge, Jac wright knows he's not on the level. No doctor looks the way Rynn does… hot, ripped and panty-wettingly gorgeous… not unless they're on primetime TV. Then the shit hits the fan, aliens attack and she finds herself on an alien ship with her charge frozen into a giant blue popsicle. What's a girl to do? Kiss the hot alien, then knock him out of course. The problem is, she can't drive a car, never mind fly an alien spaceship. Which is a problem when other, bad aliens board the ship… with an assassin on side though, breaking out of an alien brig is child's play, but comes with a price: Rynn's trust. But once on Lathar Prime her lover seems less than interested in bringing their relationship into the light of day. Will he realise what she's offering, or will Jac be forced to go to extreme measures to claim her alien assassin's heart?

The Assassin King opens at winter's end with the arrival by sea of a mysterious hunter, a man of ancient race and purpose, who endlessly chants the names of the pantheon of demons that are his intended victims, as well as one other: Ysk, the original name of the Brother, now known as Achmed, the Assassin King of Ylorc. At the same moment of this portentous arrival, two gatherings of great import are taking place. The first is a convocation of dragons, who gather in a primeval forest glade--the site of the horrific ending of Llauron, one of the last of their kind. They mourn not only his irrevocable death, but the loss of the lore and control over the Earth itself that it represents. The ancient wyrms are terrified for what will come as a result of this loss. The second gathering is a council of war held in the depths of the keep of Haguefort: Ashe and Rhapsody, rulers of the alliance that protects the Middle Continent; Gwydion, the new Duke of Navarne; Anborn, the Lord Marshall; Achmed, the King of Ylorc, and Grunthor, his Sergeant-Major. Each brings news that form the pieces of a great puzzle. And as each piece is added it becomes quite clear: War is coming, the likes of which the world has never known. Cataclysm, both large and small, await in this sixth volume of the USA Today bestselling fantasy series, The Symphony of Ages. A twisting, fast-moving tale, The Assassin King promises endless surprises--most of which lead to pain. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

A snow leopard shifter in the prime of his life, the last thing on August’s mind is tying himself to one female. He welcomes a different one to his bed each night, or at least he had until five months ago when he became alpha. The duties and pressures of running his pride have his libido dead on arrival—until a trip to London to discuss business with the former alpha lands him in the path of a beautiful, bewitching tigress who awakens a passion in him that flares white hot and a need of her that consumes his every moment. Promised at birth to a male she has never met, Maya has left her pride behind to go to the tiger alpha who is to be her mate, but she can’t leave without saying goodbye to her older brother, Talon. A stop in London at Underworld to see him one last time turns out far different, and far more dangerous, than how she had imagined it when she sets eyes on an alluring crimson-haired stranger who stirs new, unbidden feelings in her, desires that rouse her fiercest and most frightening instincts and demand she stake a claim on him—her fated mate. Will Maya be strong enough to place her pride and her family’s safety before the desires of her own heart? And will August unravel his feelings for the black-haired beauty before it’s too late and he loses her forever?

New York Times and USA Today Best-selling paranormal romance author Felicity Heaton presents Claimed by a Demon King (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 2) The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her—not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp. Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since. As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?

Im Dezember 1988 kommen beim Lockerbie-Bombenanschlag alle 259 Passagiere einer Boeing 747 ums Leben, darunter auch Maureen, die Verlobte des US-Collegestudenten Mitch Rapp. Ein Jahr nach ihrem Tod wird Mitch von der CIA rekrutiert und schließt sich dem geheimen Orion-Team an, das gegen den weltweiten Terror in den Kampf zieht. An Krisenherden in Europa, im Nahen Osten und Asien bewältigt er den Verlust seiner großen Liebe und sucht nach einem neuen Sinn für sein Leben. American Assassin erzählt die Anfänge der Karriere des knallharten Anti-Terror-Kämpfers Mitch Rapp. Der Auftakt zu einer globalen Bestseller-Reihe mit bislang 14 Bänden. Vince Flynn wird von Lesern und Kritikern als Meister des modernen Polit-Thrillers gefeiert. Dabei begann seine literarische Laufbahn eher holprig: Der Traum von einer Pilotenlaufbahn beim Marine Corps platzte aus gesundheitlichen Gründen. Stattdessen schlug er sich als Immobilienmakler, Marketingassistent und Barkeeper durch. Neben der Arbeit kämpfte er gegen seine Legasthenie und verschlang Bücher seiner Idole Hemingway, Ludlum, Clancy, Tolkien, Vidal und Irving, bevor er selbst mit dem Schreiben begann. Insgesamt 60 Verlage lehnten sein Roman-Debüt ab. Doch Flynn gab nicht auf und veröffentlichte es in Eigenregie. Der Auftakt einer einzigartigen Erfolgsgeschichte: Term Limits wurde ein Verkaufsschlager, ein großer US-Verleger griff zu, die Folgebände waren fortan auf Spitzenpositionen in den Bestseller-Charts abonniert. Der Autor verstarb 2013 im Alter von 47 Jahren infolge einer Krebserkrankung.

The story of the love that ended an empire In this commanding book, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Robert K. Massie sweeps readers back to the extraordinary world of Imperial Russia to tell the story of the Romanovs’ lives: Nicholas’s political naïveté, Alexandra’s obsession with the corrupt mystic Rasputin, and little Alexis’s brave struggle with hemophilia. Against a lavish backdrop of luxury and intrigue, Massie unfolds a powerful drama of passion and history—the story of a doomed empire and the death-marked royals who watched it crumble. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Robert K. Massie's Catherine the Great. Praise for Nicholas and Alexandra “A larger-than-life drama.”—Saturday Review “A moving, rich book . . . [This] revealing, densely documented account of the last Romanovs focuses not on the great events . . . but on the royal family and their evil nemesis. . . . The tale is so bizarre, no melodrama is equal to it.”—Newsweek “A wonderfully rich tapestry, the colors fresh and clear, every strand sewn in with a sure hand. Mr. Massie describes those strange and terrible years with sympathy and understanding. . . . They come vividly before our eyes.”—The New York Times “An all-too-human picture . . . Both Nicholas and Alexandra with all their failings come truly alive, as does their almost storybook romance.”—Newsday “A magnificent and intimate picture . . . Not only the main characters but a whole era become alive and comprehensible.”—Harper’s

To commemorate the momentous 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s pioneering journey into space on 12th April 2011, a series of five books – to be published annually – will explore this half century, decade by decade, to discover how humanity’s knowledge of flying, working and living in space has changed. Each volume will focus not only upon the individual missions within ‘its’ decade, but also upon the key challenges facing human space exploration at specific points within those 50 years: from the simple problems of breathing and eating in space to the challenges of venturing outside in a pressurised spacesuit and locomotion on the Moon. The first volume of this series will focus upon the 1960s, exploring each mission from April 1961 to April 1971 in depth: from the pioneering Vostok flights to the establishment of the first Salyut space station and from Alan Shepard’s modest sub-orbital ‘hop’ into space to his triumphant arrival at the Moon’s Fra Mauro foothills almost a decade later.
