Alerte coloc sexy et arrogant ! Engagée pour être la nounou du célèbre chanteur des HotEverShot, Tabatha ne pensait pas que supporter Tomy, le prétentieux batteur du groupe, ferait partie du job ! Pour Tomy, cette intruse prend un peu trop ses aises et il met un point d’honneur à la remettre à sa place. Sauf que Tab n’est pas du genre à se laisser faire. Mais quand le passé frappe à sa porte, le bad boy a besoin d’aide… une aide qui pourrait bien leur faire oublier leurs différends ! Débute alors une drôle de colocation où la confrontation fait peu à peu place à quelque de chose de bien plus torride… *** Tiens, pas de photos pour Super Connard ? Ils le trouvent peut-être trop rustre pour apparaître sur la couverture d’un magazine ou je ne sais quel machin qui servira à la promo des Hots. Pourtant, avec son regard bleu acier qui tranche avec la noirceur de ses cheveux, sa mâchoire carrée rehaussée d’une barbe parfaitement taillée… Oh, tais-toi, Tab ! – N’y pense même pas, grommelle l’énergumène en question alors que son frère pose un regard pensif sur lui. – Et pourquoi donc ? – Parce que c’est son boulot à elle, certainement pas le mien. La façon qu’il a de me pointer du doigt fait soudainement monter en moi une furieuse envie de le mordre. – Sauf que Tabatha m’accompagne, intervient Angèle. – Je ne garderai pas Betty. Tu n’as qu’à y aller sans cette fille ! OK, là, c’est le moment d’ajouter mon grain de sel et de jouer sur la corde sensible. D’abord parce qu’il peut bien faire un effort pour Angèle, qui a envie pour la première fois depuis qu’elle est sortie de l’hôpital de se faire plaisir. Et puis aussi parce que je me fais un devoir de le pousser dans ses retranchements. Il paraît que ça met de l’ambiance, non ? Ça tombe bien car justement, j’ai le sens du sacrifice. – Enfin, Tomy, imaginez qu’Angèle fasse un malaise ? Ce sera sa première sortie, il me semble important qu’elle soit accompagnée, il ne faudrait pas qu’elle présume de ses forces. Il reste bouche bée, ne trouvant rien à répondre. Tab 1 – Tomy 0. – Je ne saurais pas m’occuper d’un bébé, je ne suis pas équipé pour, finit-il par bougonner. – Ça veut dire quoi, exactement ? dis-je d’un air choqué. Qu’il faut une paire de seins pour savoir donner un biberon et changer une couche ?! Mais c’est pas possible... Plus ça va et plus je lui découvre un côté sexiste qui me reste en travers de la gorge. – Dans ce cas, s’amuse Davon, je crois qu’il m’en est poussé pendant la nuit. – Fais voir, un peu ? demande Jay en soulevant le tee-shirt de son ami tout en riant. – Et vous ferez comment quand vous en aurez un à vous, alors ? je poursuis. Ce sera madame qui fera tout le travail ? – Je n’en aurai pas, ce sera toujours des soucis en moins. Et je ne parlais pas de ça. Betty pleure dix fois plus fort dès que je la porte. Vous n’allez quand même pas me la laisser ? – S’il te plaît, Tomy, l’implore sa belle-sœur en faisant une moue que même moi je trouve adorable. Ça me ferait tellement de bien de sortir entre filles. Et j’ai envie de mieux connaître Tabatha. Oh bon sang, il craque en un regard. Angèle 1000 – Tomy 0, si ce n’est moins. Il ne peut rien refuser à cette femme. – Ne me fais pas ton air de chat potté, par pitié, la supplie-t-il en enfonçant son visage entre ses mains, s’avouant déjà vaincu, tandis que son frère et Jay chuchotent en plaisantant dans son dos que ça marche à tous les coups. – Après, bien sûr, si vous préférez tenir compagnie à Angèle, vous pouvez vous charger du shopping. Qui sait, vous pourriez en profiter pour vous trouver une robe ou de jolis dessous, pour le jour où il vous poussera autre chose qu’une montée de testostérone.

Why is there a twelve on the cover of this blackjack book instead of the usual twenty-one? No blackjack author in their right mind would put a hand of twelve on the cover. Glen Wiggy did—he is full of surprises like that. Part how-to manual, part memoir, 1536 Free Waters and Other Blackjack Endeavors—Finding Profit and Humor in Card-Counting chronicles Wiggy’s amusing experiences while playing blackjack during more than eight hundred casino visits from January 2001 until June 2008. It also introduces blackjack card-counting in a fun and easy-to-learn format. In addition to the everyday casino patrons, starving puppies, angry pit bosses, French doughnuts, talking sea gulls, and 1536 bottled waters make unforgettable appearances in these entertaining stories tailored for casual blackjack gamblers. For players pursuing the game for serious profit, Wiggy also presents practical tips on • Aspects of blackjack basic strategy • Fundamentals of card-counting • Techniques for managing money • Dangers of greedy gambling behavior Unlike most blackjack strategy guides, 1536 Free Waters and Other Blackjack Endeavors won’t teach you how to “kill” the dealer or make a living playing the game. Instead, you’ll learn basic strategy and introductory card-counting skills that give you enough confidence to approach the table with a positive attitude and reasonable expectation of winning. Plus, you’ll learn what to expect from the cards and the wonderfully strange people and places you may encounter. Enjoy the ride. “Undoubtedly, the most enjoyable blackjack book I’ve read in my twenty years as the editor of a gambling publishing company. It had me laughing out loud.” —Deke Castleman, editor for Huntington Press Read more at www.blackjackstories.com.

Because outback Queensland was so vast and flat, author Reece Kennedys little boy imagination grew as far as he could see. This imagination was slowly infused with a far-sighted awareness from which he proceeded to develop a lot of questions about the how and the why of everything. In Hardship to Happiness, Kennedy shares the story of his life beginning in the Aussie Outback to boarding school to the whole wide world. He tells what it was like riding bulls to rolling cars and living to tell the tale. He tells of marrying the girl he dreamed about, having four kids in five years, and being grateful for every minute. This memoir shares the highs, the lows, and everything in between. Its about realizing the world can give you all you ever wanted it to, or equally, everything you wanted it not to give you. Hardship to Happiness is about a journey that started out being directed by influences and has ended up being guided by attitudes.

“[An] enjoyable series of interest to western crime readers, especially those favoring Montana authors C. J. Box, Craig Johnson, and Keith McCafferty as well as fans of the Hillermans” (Booklist). The news is bad: five young women—so far—raped, tortured, and left in the Montana wilderness to be devoured by coyotes. It’s not long before Gabriel Du Pré, Métis Indian cattle inspector and occasional deputy, gets the call from Sheriff Benny Klein, summoning him to yet another grisly crime scene—this time in his own backyard. Not far from the victim, he finds two more murdered women, their bodies arranged over each other in a cross. A message from the killer? But what does it mean? Working alongside a Blackfoot FBI agent and his feisty female partner, Du Pré, a father and grandfather with two daughters of his own, gives his all to the manhunt. But as more victims are found, and a young woman he cares about disappears, he will come to the grim realization that he must learn to think like this monster in order to catch him. “Like the most memorable creations in detective fiction, [Du Pré’s] moral center is unshakeable” (Booklist). Notches is the 4th book in The Montana Mysteries Featuring Gabriel Du Pré series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

The contemporary western mystery series continues in these novels featuring a half Indian cattle inspector and “character of legendary proportions” (Ridley Pearson). Officially, Gabriel Du Pré is the cattle inspector for Toussaint, Montana, responsible for making sure no one tries to sell cattle branded by another ranch. Unofficially, he is responsible for much more than cows’ backsides. The barren country around Toussaint is too vast for the town’s small police force, and so, when needed, this hard-nosed Métis Indian lends a hand. In Gabriel Du Pré, “Bowen has taken the antihero of Hemingway and Hammett and brought him up to date . . . a fresh, memorable character” (The New York Times Book Review). Notches: Working alongside a Blackfoot FBI agent and his feisty female partner, Du Pré tracks a serial killer hunting young women in the Montana wilderness. “A haunting tale, punched out in arresting rhythms of speech powerful as a tribal drumbeat.” —Entertainment Weekly Thunder Horse: After an earthquake exposes an ancient burial site, Native American tribes fight over the remains and a fossilized Tyrannosaurus rex tooth is found in the hands of a murdered anthropologist. Time for Du Pré to start digging. “Strange, seductive . . . The wonder of these voices is that they are . . . blunt, crude, soaked in whiskey and raspy from laughter, but still capable of leaving echoes.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review Long Son: After greedy, vicious Larry Messmer inherits his parents’ ranch, the FBI asks Du Pré to keep an eye on the pathological prodigal son. When violence inevitably erupts, Du Pré finds himself caught in the crosshairs. “Bowen’s writing is lean and full of mordant observations. His hardy characters . . . come to life, and his wry humor . . . provides relief from the haunting, wind-bitten cattle-ranch landscape.” —Publishers Weekly
