È il bacio che non ho mai avuto, il tocco di un uomo maturo, tanto esigente quanto generoso. Mi sfiora di nuovo con la punta della lingua, prima di mordere piano, come se fosse pronto per avere tutto il resto. «Sei migliorato, devi aver fatto molta pratica.»(...) Potevo restare nell'ignoranza. Invece ho voluto provare la serie A fatta uomo. Ho stipulato io stessa il contratto col diavolo degli amanti, con la clausola riportata in calce a garanzia di non rivederlo mai più. Patricia ha un sogno: quello di diventare scrittrice. Ma la strada per arrivare al successo non è poi così semplice. Tutti sembrano amare le storie piccanti e lei non è capace di scrivere scene spinte. Capitano a fagiolo, quindi, i diari della zia Brie, erotici e romantici al punto giusto, da cui trarre ispirazione. Il ritorno di Samuel Fenwick nella sua vita, però, le fa capire che l’erotismo non è soltanto una favola da mettere per iscritto sul suo blog, ma è un desiderio che arde sottopelle e che brucia dentro fino a farle fare scelte azzardate e senza logica. Una notte ancora, solo una, con un uomo ricco che le ha rubato il cuore da ragazza. Sembra volerlo anche lui, mentre lo sguardo le accarezza il corpo e le dice che non ha dimenticato. Pat non sa cosa fare, ma una cosa è certa: un uomo come Sam non può essere soltanto un’avventura, perché per lei Samuel è ancora il ragazzo sorridente e romantico che l’ha fatta sognare al faro, non l’uomo ricco e snob della famiglia che spadroneggia in paese. Una storia frizzante e leggera, dai toni dolci, che vi farà sospirare e sorridere insieme. Il primo romanzo autoconclusivo della serie romantica Too Much della scrittrice Eveline Durand, che inaugura con la sua penna talentuosa la collana digitale Vega della Delrai Edizioni. La serie Too Much è così composta: Una scrittrice troppo bugiarda Troppo giovane per me Una scatto di troppo Per info sulle nostre pubblicazioni: www.delraiedizioni.com Profilo Facebook dell'autrice: https://goo.gl/VqxZVg

Lo conosco da sempre e so di desiderarlo da quando i miei ormoni hanno iniziato la loro prospera carriera. Mentre mi piega alla sua volontà con il tocco della sua lingua, reagisco irrigidendomi. L’unica cosa che riesco a fare è stringere le cosce, afflitta dal bisogno di sentire il suo tocco. Non sono ancora convinta, temo che sia l’ennesima messinscena per stuzzicarmi. È sempre stato così tra noi. «Se mi stai prendendo in giro, te la farò pagare» lo minaccio debolmente.«Non vedi come mi hai ridotto? Sei tu quella che mi provoca sempre» ribatte. «Mi sono stancato di guardare e basta. Sai da quanto tempo sogno di farti questo?» insiste, provocandomi una sorta di capogiro. «Lo hai nascosto molto bene...» «Chiudi il becco. Sei l’unica che mi riduce in questo stato, sei l’unica che sa tenermi testa così. Abbiamo bisticciato abbastanza. Adesso. Si. Fa. Sul. Serio.» Una Bonet e un Roche, insieme. Quattro sorelle e un solo ragazzo. Quale di loro sarà destinata a stare con l’unico figlio dei Roche?Da sempre Roche e Bonet condividono ogni evento mondano, comprese le chiassose feste di Natale. Ed è proprio durante una di queste che una giovanissima Juniper sente le crudeli parole del ragazzo che segretamente ama: Tutte tranne lei.Anni dopo, Juniper è fuggita dal passato e si è trasferita a Brooklyn, diventando una promettente fotografa. Renè lavora come reporter in un noto programma di gossip, Blink Eye. Quando l’occhio della sua insolente telecamera colpisce Simon, il migliore amico di Juniper, i due sono costretti a scontrarsi. Determinata e con la lingua tagliente, lei tira fuori gli artigli e affronta il ragazzo che le ha spezzato il cuore. Come spesso accade, niente è come sembra, una rivelazione scioccante può sconvolgere i piani. Ma si può dimenticare il vero amore quando l’attrazione esplode? Primo romanzo della serie Too Much: Una scrittrice troppo bugiarda, disponibile su Amazon. Secondo romanzo della serie Too Much: Troppo giovane per me, disponibile su Amazon. Per info sulle nostre pubblicazioni: www.delraiedizioni.comProfilo Facebook dell'autrice: https://goo.gl/VqxZVg Biografia dell'autrice: Eveline Durand non ama molto parlare di sé. Come autrice, tanta riservatezza è da lei stessa giustificata con l'esigenza di lasciarsi andare alla scrittura, ma in realtà la sua è solo timidezza. Grande sognatrice a occhi aperti, ha sempre con sé un quaderno per prendere appunti, veste sempre di nero e le piace andare al cinema da sola. La sua libreria occupa l'intero soggiorno. Scrivere romanzi rosa è il suo modo per esprimere al meglio una sua teoria: l'amore romantico è molto più divertente se condito con una buona dose di torbida passione.

Suite Française is both a brilliant novel of wartime and an extraordinary historical document. An unmatched evocation of the exodus from Paris after the German invasion of 1940, and of life under the Nazi occupation, it was written by the esteemed French novelist Irène Némirovsky as events unfolded around her. This haunting masterpiece has been hailed by European critics as a War and Peace for the Second World War. Though she conceived the book as a five-part work (based on the form of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony), Irène Némirovsky was able to write only the first two parts, Storm in June and Dolce, before she was arrested in July 1942. She died in Auschwitz the following month. The manuscript was saved by her young daughter Denise; it was only decades later that Denise learned that what she had imagined was her mother’s journal was in fact an invaluable work of art. Storm in June takes place in the tumult of the evacuation from Paris in 1940, just before the arrival of the invading German army. It moves vividly between different levels of society–from the wealthy Péricand family, whose servants pack up their possessions for them, to a group of orphans from the 16th arrondissement escaping in a military truck. Némirovsky’s immense canvas includes deserting soldiers and terrified secretaries, cynical bank directors and hapless priests, egotistical writers and hardscrabble prostitutes–all thrown together in a chaotic attempt to escape the capital. Moving between them chapter by chapter, this thrilling novel describes a journey hampered and in some cases abandoned because of confusion, shelling, rumour, lack of supplies, bad luck and ordinary human weakness. Cars break down or are stolen; relatives are forgotten; friends are divided; but there are also moments of love and charity. Throughout, whether depicting saintly forbearance or the basest selfishness, Storm in June neither sweetens nor demonizes its characters; unsentimentally, with stunning perceptiveness, Némirovsky shows the complexities that mean no-one is simply a hero or villain. The second volume, Dolce, is set in the German-occupied village of Bussy. Again, Némirovsky switches seamlessly between social strata, from tenant farmers to the local aristocracy. The focus, however, is on the delicate, secret love affair between a German soldier and the French woman in whose house he has been billeted; the passion, doubts and deceits of their burgeoning relationship echo the complex mixture of hostility and acceptance felt by the occupied community as a whole. Némirovsky is amazingly sensitive in her depiction of changing, often contradictory emotions, but her attention to the personal is matched by her sharp-eyed discussion of small-town life and the politics of occupation. In this myth-dissolving book, the French villagers see the Germans as oppressive warriors, but also as handsome young men, and occupation does nothing to remedy the condescension and envy that bedevil relations between rich and poor. Quite apart from the astonishing story of its survival, Suite Française is a novel of genius and lasting artistic value. Subtle, often fiercely ironic, and deeply compassionate, it is both a piercing record of its time and a humane, profoundly moving novel. From the Hardcover edition.

From the godfather of Italian noir “A noir writer richly deserving rediscovery.” —Publishers Weekly One balmy spring evening on the outskirts of Milan, a Fiat with two passengers plunges into a canal. At first, their deaths are registered as an accident. But Duca Lamberti, the doctor-turned-detective of Giorgio Scerbanenco’s legendary series, suspects there’s more to it than that. Because that same canal has been the scene of other deaths, and all the incidents have one man in common: a lawyer with a murky past stretching all the way back to World War II—a man who, in fact, once shared a prison cell with Lamberti. Winner of the most prestigious European crime prize on its original publication in 1966, Traitors to All is classic noir by one of the greatest writers of the genre—a book that lays bare the connections between Milan’s troubled history during the war and its swinging sixties affluence, as well as an utterly absorbing tale of betrayal and revenge.

Fair Play is the type of love story that is rarely told, a revelatory depiction of contentment, hard-won and exhilarating. Mari is a writer and Jonna is an artist, and they live at opposite ends of a big apartment building, their studios connected by a long attic passageway. They have argued, worked, and laughed together for decades. Yet they’ve never really stopped taking each other by surprise. Fair Play shows us Mari and Jona’s intertwined lives as they watch Fassbinder films and Westerns, critique each other’s work, spend time on a solitary island (recognizable to readers of Jansson’s The Summer Book), travel through the American Southwest, and turn life into nothing less than art.

«Shh.» Mi mette a tacere appoggiando l'indice sulle mie labbra. Lo sento afferrarmi per un fianco con l'altra mano, in un gesto intimo e possessivo. Le mani di un uomo sono davvero tutte così? Grandi, calde e forti? Il suo palmo si stringe sul mio punto vita e mi fa sentire in trappola, minuscola. Non so se sono pronta ad averlo così vicino, ma lo voglio da star male. La distanza tra i nostri corpi si è ridotta a pochi centimetri e il suo dito indugia sul mio labbro. Lo accarezza con pigrizia, sembra sondare la mia reazione, quasi chiedendo tacitamente il permesso di avvicinarsi di più. Grace Finelli è la regina delle wedding planner di Palm Springs. Trentaquattro anni, divorziata e donna in carriera, è un tipo deciso e indipendente. Quando crede ormai di non potersi più sentire coinvolta da un uomo, si trova spiazzata dalla sua attrazione profonda per Dominic Keller, affascinante pasticcere del servizio di catering. Gli occhi azzurri, le labbra morbide, il talento, la brillante intelligenza, tutto di lui affascina Grace, che inizia ad avere una vera e propria ossessione per il sottoposto, pur consapevole di non potersi prendere una sbandata per un collaboratore. Ma non è il lavoro a preoccuparla maggiormente, quanto la giovane età del ragazzo, che ha ventitré anni. E come trovare il coraggio di dire alla sua migliore amica Brenda che il suo adorato figlio ha una relazione con lei? Grace non può lasciarsi andare, eppure Nick continua a turbarla e a volerla nella sua vita.

Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene ever since the shooting of his wife Molly by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman in last night’s party dress, barefoot, enjoying a champagne picnic alone, reading his favorite novel. Everything about her reminds him of what he used to have with Molly. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a message on a popular website after he mentions the encounter.

The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him—and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, to absolve herself of guilt from a tragic decision, a secret she has held for twenty years. But as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

The author of The Pocket Wife explores the dark side of love, marriage, and infidelity in this sizzling novel of psychological suspense. Everybody’s luck runs out. This time it could be theirs . . . It isn’t safe. That’s what Joe tells her when he ends their affair—moments before their car skids off an icy road in a blinding snowstorm and hits a tree. Desperate to keep her life intact—her job, her husband, and her precious daughter, Lily—Dorrie will do everything she can to protect herself, even if it means walking away from the wreckage. Dorrie has always been a good actress, pretending to be someone else: the dutiful daughter, the satisfied wife, the woman who can handle anything. Now she’s going to put on the most challenging performance of her life. But details about the accident leave her feeling uneasy and afraid. Why didn’t Joe’s airbag work? Why was his car door open before the EMTs arrived? And now suddenly someone is calling her from her dead lover’s burner phone. . . . Joe’s death has left his wife in free fall as well. Karen knew Joe was cheating—she found some suspicious e-mails. Trying to cope with grief is devastating enough without the constant fear that has overtaken her—this feeling she can’t shake that someone is watching her. And with Joe gone and the kids grown, she’s vulnerable . . . and on her own. Insurance investigator Maggie Brennan is suspicious of the latest claim that’s landed on her desk—a man dying on an icy road shortly after buying a lucrative life insurance policy. Maggie doesn’t believe in coincidences. The former cop knows that things—and people—are never what they seem to be. As the fates of these three women become more tightly entwined, layers of lies and deception begin to peel away, pushing them dangerously to the edge . . . closer to each other . . . to a terrifying truth . . . to a shocking end.
