« Je l’ai lu deux fois – d’affilée... C’est la plus profonde, la plus sombre et la plus excitante aventure dans laquelle j’ai jamais été entrainée. » - Jay Crownover, auteur des series Bad et Marked Men Le grand début de la dark romance en France. Personne n'explore aussi bien la frontière entre la destruction et l'amour que Penelope Douglas. Un nom à retenir. Leur amour peut les sauver... ou les détruire. Michael Crist. Un nom qui fait frissonner chaque fille de notre petite communauté privilégiée de la côte Est. Moi comme les autres. Sauf que moi, ce n’est pas sa beauté à couper le souffle ou le fait qu’il soit riche et adulé qui me fascine – enfin, pas seulement. Non, moi, c’est la noirceur que je devine sous sa carapace dorée. La violence dans son regard noisette. Son mépris pour les règles, les lois, la morale. Ce miroir permanent de tout ce qui est noir et sombre au fond de moi. En dix-neuf ans, Michael ne m’a jamais jeté un regard. Mais, le jour où il s’intéresse à moi, je ne sais pas si je dois être excitée... ou terrifiée. « Dark Romance est un chef d’œuvre. Penelope Douglas vous embarque vers les recoins les plus sombres de l’âme où peur et désir se mêlent. Captivant, intense et sexy, ce roman vous laissera étourdi... » - Helena Hunting, auteur de Bad Boy "Bref, si vous ne devenez retenir qu'une chose de ce roman, c'est...lancez vous. Bougez les lignes. Changez les codes. Osez. Car oui c'est aussi un roman sur la provocation et sur l'accomplissement. Oubliez la frontière entre le bien et le mal...finalement, elle est floue." Emily Blaine. "Dark Romance porte bien son nom, j'ai été transporté, happé, j'ai retenu mon souffle, j'ai été scotché par tout ce qui se passe pour tous les protagonistes. Un roman qui m'a pris aux tripes et dont l'histoire restera gravée dans ma mémoire longtemps, je ne peux que vous l'a conseillez."

Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name. I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do. They all talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate?

It's not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It's definitely the SIZE of the boat too. And I've got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big you-know-what. You might think I'm jerk. I sound like one, don’t I? I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse. Guess what? You haven't heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind. The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock. And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets. But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her. What the hell have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

The Air He Breathes
I was warned about Tristan Cole. "Stay away from him," people said. "He's cruel." "He's cold." "He's damaged." It's easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn't do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me. We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.
The Paper Bag Christmas
Dr. Christopher Ringle is the last person you'd expect to find moonlighting as Santa Claus at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving. But it is there that he meets a young man named Molar Alan, who desperately needs a new perspective on the underlying value of Christmas. Dr. Ringle recruits Mo and his older brother as volunteers at a nearby children's hospital for the holiday season. At the hospital, Mo is tasked to help bring holiday cheer to the young cancer patients on the fifth floor. His biggest challenge is befriending a decidedly angry girl who is so embarrassed by her scarred appearance that she hides her face behind the safety of a paper bag. Almost in spite of himself, Mo finds that Christmas joy emanates from a source far greater than the North Pole, while the young girl learns that she is more beautiful than she had ever imagined.
Elijah in Jerusalem
Elijah in Jerusalem, the long awaited sequel to the acclaimed best-selling novel, Father Elijah: An Apocalypse , is the continuing story of the priest, Fr. Elijah. A convert from Judaism, and a survivor of the Holocaust, he has for decades been a Carmelite monk on the mountain of the prophet Elijah. In the events of the preceding novel, Father Elijah, the central character confronted the President of the European Union, a man rising toward global control as President of the soon to be realized World Government. The Pope recognized in the President certain qualities that are anti-Christ, and asked Fr. Elijah to call the man to repentance, though his attempts at this prove to be unsuccessful. In this sequel, now-Bishop Elijah, accompanied by his fellow monk Brother Enoch, enter Jerusalem just as the President arrives in the city to inaugurate a new stage of his rise to power. They hope to unmask him as the Antichrist prophesied by Scripture and to warn the world of the imminent spiritual danger to mankind. As the story unfolds, people of many kinds meet the undercover priest, and in the process their souls are revealed and tested, bringing about change for the good or for evil. Elijah perseveres in his mission even when all seems lost. The dramatic climax is surprising, yet it underlines that God works all things to the good for those who love Him, testifying to the truth that in the end Wisdom will be justified and Satan confounded.

Aflame Tatum Brandt finally has everything she wants. Acceptance to medical school, a circle of friends she would never replace, and contentment that every day is now hers.

And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood still holds her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man, and knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden. But years ago, Lucas left town and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore. Until a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its contents reveal family secrets that threaten to turn her world upside down. She’s never asked about the path of her parents’ romantic history, but she soon learns their happy marriage had a very rocky and passionate start. As she starts to see things around her with new eyes, Quinn will have to make tough choices about whether she’ll keep waiting…or finally go after what she really wants.
