Manoir de Keroual, Bretagne, 1795 Gouvernante ? Yaël lui offre de devenir gouvernante au manoir de Keroual ! Pour qui la prend-il ? Une simple domestique, apparemment. Urielle aura donc quitté les Antilles après la missive où il lui annonçait son veuvage et sa solitude pour jouer les simples spectatrices de sa descente aux enfers. Hors de question d’assister impuissante à la perte de cet ange blond qu’elle a toujours aimé et auprès duquel Charlotte Sénéchal gravite dangereusement. Même si cela implique d’accepter une si basse fonction, alors qu’une mission autrement plus importante pour la jeune République attend tout son talent... A propos de l'autrice : Vivre, c’est choisir, et choisir, c’est renoncer. N’emprunter qu’un passage, quand dix s’ouvrent simultanément et qu’on voudrait les prendre tous... Léna Forestier a donc dû choisir : ni agent secret, ni décoratrice de cupcakes, ni tarologue, ni vétérinaire pour marsupiaux en Tasmanie... mais romancière et nouvelliste, parce qu’écrire est le seul métier qui permet de ne renoncer à rien, d’habiter tous les lieux de la Terre et d’être quelqu’un de différent à chaque histoire.

A story of misplaced expectations and unexpected passion from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts. For a change of pace, renowned anthropologist Kasey Wyatt takes a job working for bestselling author Jordan Taylor, who needs helps researching his latest novel about the Plains Indians. Upon arriving at Jordan’s impressive Palm Springs estate, Kasey finds all the trappings of a family, but none of the warmth.

And suddenly Jordan finds himself drawn to a woman unlike any he has ever desired, one who is able to transform his day-to-day existence into a life worth living. . . . “You can’t bottle wish fulfillment, but Ms. Roberts certainly knows how to put it on the page.”—The New York Times “When it comes to true romance, no one does it better than Nora.”—Booklist (starred review)

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews * Publishers Weekly * Library Journal Named a “Must-Read” by TODAY, Us Weekly, Bustle, BuzzFeed, Goodreads, Entertainment Weekly, Publishers Weekly, Southern Living, Book Riot, Woman’s Day, The Toronto Star, and more! For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetime—maybe even love—in this romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling authors of Roomies. Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion...she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas. Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo. Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is...Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be. With Christina Lauren’s “uniquely hilarious and touching voice” (Entertainment Weekly), The Unhoneymooners is a romance for anyone who has ever felt unlucky in love.

Ouverte dès le XIXe siècle, la question de Palestine a pris un caractère particulièrement aigu après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. En dépit des apparences et des idées reçues, ce n’est pas la Shoah qui a accéléré le dessein des Juifs de fonder un « foyer national », mais plutôt le déclin de la puissance européenne, en particulier de la Grande-Bretagne au Moyen-Orient. Durant le conflit et juste après, ce sont en effet le Liban, la Syrie, l’Irak, la Jordanie qui se trouvent débarrassés des mandats confiés en 1919 par la SDN à la France et à l’Angleterre, et quelques années plus tard, l’Égypte elle-même acquiert son indépendance. Pour les sionistes, le moment est venu. La création d’Israël est décidée à l’arraché à l’ONU. Mais les pays arabes, estimant que ce nouvel État, créé à leurs dépens, n’a été voulu par les Européens que pour se racheter de la destruction des Juifs d’Europe, ne s’inclineront jamais devant le partage de la Palestine. Incursions des uns dans le territoire des autres, sabotages, luttes pour la terre et pour l’eau douce, rancoeurs et haines, jeu des grandes puissances et des puissances déclinantes empêcheront jusqu’à nos jours qu’une issue soit trouvée. Quant aux souffrances des Palestiniens, elles seront bien longues à être prises en compte. À lire la minutieuse chronique dressée dans ce nouveau volume (1947- 1967) par Henry Laurens, on se convainc que la culture du conflit est devenue comme une seconde nature de ces contrées : indépendant depuis quelques jours, Israël doit faire face à un conflit ouvert ; en 1956, alors que le problème à résoudre pour les Européens est de répondre à Nasser après la nationalisation du canal de Suez, Israël fait partie d’une improbable coalition anglofrançaise ; en 1967, comme aucune frontière ne semble intangible et comme Américains et Soviétiques se révèlent incapables – ou peu désireux – de calmer le jeu en lieu et place des Européens, Israël s’estime contraint d’attaquer de nouveau ses voisins. À chaque guerre Israël se renforce, à chaque fois, l’humiliation vient nourrir la haine. L’histoire n’a pas pour rôle de renvoyer les protagonistes de ce sempiternel conflit dos à dos – et pourtant une bonne part des torts sont partagés –, mais elle peut apporter une irremplaçable contribution en montrant comment on en est arrivé là. Des décideurs de bonne volonté pourraient toujours en faire leur miel...

“The Devil Wears Prada’s Emily Charlton gets the spin-off she deserves” (Cosmopolitan) in the months-long New York Times bestseller from Lauren Weisberger in which three women team up to bring a bad man down in the tony suburb of Greenwich, Connecticut. Welcome to Greenwich, Connecticut, where the lawns and the women are perfectly manicured, the Tito’s and sodas are extra strong, and everyone has something to say about the infamous new neighbor. Let’s be clear: Emily Charlton does not do the suburbs. After leaving Miranda Priestly, she’s been working in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars, but recently, Emily’s lost a few clients. She’s hopeless with social media. The new guard is nipping at her heels. She needs a big opportunity, and she needs it now. When Karolina Hartwell, a gorgeous former supermodel, is arrested, her fall from grace is merciless. Her senator-husband leaves her, her Beltway friends disappear, and the tabloids pounce. In Karolina, Emily finds her comeback opportunity. But she quickly learns Greenwich is a world apart and that this comeback needs a team approach. So it is that Emily, the scorned Karolina, and their mutual friend Miriam, a powerful attorney turned stay-at-home mom, band together to navigate the social land mines of suburban Greenwich and win back the hearts of the American public. Along the way, an unexpected ally emerges in one Miranda Priestly. With her signature wit, Lauren Weisberger offers an alluring look into a sexy, over-the-top world—and proves it’s style and substance together that gets the job done. “A delicious sequel to The Devil Wears Prada…exploring what it’s like to be a woman buffeted by conflicting messages about career, relationships, and motherhood” (The Washington Post), When Life Gives You Lululemons is “amazing novel about…truth, lies and how everyone is a little bit insecure” (Associated Press). “Fast-paced, funny, and gossipy, this is the must-have accessory for your beach bag” (PopSugar).

The Hollow Needle (1910) is a novel by Maurice Leblanc. Originally serialized in in Je sais tout, a popular French magazine, The Hollow Needle is a crime and adventure novel featuring the legendary Arsène Lupin. Partly based on the life of French anarchist Marius Jacob, Lupin first appeared in print in 1905 as an answer to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Blending crime fiction, fantasy, and mystery, Leblanc crafts original and entertaining tales of adventure starring one of the greatest literary characters of all time—Arsène Lupin, gentleman thief. Arsène Lupin is the world’s greatest thief, an unmatched force for good whose exploits threaten the wealth and standing of France’s most wicked men. In this installment of Leblanc’s beloved series, Lupin uses his remarkable wit and chameleon-like ability to move undetected through aristocratic society in order to steal, trick, and cheat his way through life. Despite his criminal nature, he operates under a strict moral code, only taking from those who have taken from the poor all their lives. In this novel, Lupin discovers the secret of the Kings of France, leading him to a hidden hoard of jewels passed down since the days of the Roman Empire. On his trail is amateur detective Isidore Beautrelet, a high school boy determined to stop Lupin from completing the theft of a lifetime. Despite his youth and inexperience, he proves surprisingly capable of catching the gentleman thief. The Hollow Needle is a story of romance, mystery, and crime that continues to astound over a century after it was published. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Maurice Leblanc’s The Hollow Needle is a classic of French literature reimagined for modern readers.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches—look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches,” streaming on AMC Plus, Sundance Now and Shudder. Season 2 premieres January 9, 2021! What does it truly take to become a vampire? On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood. Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor--the young employee at Sotheby's whom Marcus has fallen for--is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the eighteenth century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever. A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, Time's Convert, the fourth books in the All Souls Series channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the previous books instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries.
