Elsa is a hardworking, single 35-year-old woman who loves to read paranormal books. She hides herself away and lives every moment with her book boyfriends, and as long as she has a never-ending supply of them, and wine, she appears to be happy. At least, that what she tells herself. She's brash and a control freak, constantly stressed and a bit of a bitch. Once her workday is over, she retreats to her apartment and escapes to the fantasy land of her books, avoiding relationships despite secretly yearning to be involved with someone. It's only after she meets Jasper that she learns she needs therapy. But this is a different kind of therapy - there's no psychiatrist. At Club Fantazia, Elsa comes face-to-face with her fears and has to get over the inhibitions that hold her prisoner. Club Fantazia isn't just any club, though - it's invitation only - and once you're in, you learn its secrets and will never want to leave. Fantazia is the first book in this series, where you will learn about what goes on in this secret club. The owners and workers are not like anyone else you've ever met. This is a mild BDSM, erotic, self-effacing short story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jazmin Kensington. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/041827/bk_acx0_041827_sample.mp3.

The New York Times best-selling author of Bergdorf Blondes takes us back to the decadent 1980s in this comic murder mystery set in the tony world of Oxford University. It's 1985, and at Oxford University, Pimm's, punting, and ball gowns are de rigeur. Ursula Flowerbutton, a studious country girl, arrives for her first term anticipating nothing more sinister than days spent poring over history books in gilded libraries - and, if she's lucky, an invitation to a ball. But when she discovers a glamorous classmate on a chaise longue with her throat cut, Ursula is catapulted into a murder investigation. Determined to bag her first scoop for the famous student newspaper Cherwell, Ursula enlists the help of trendsetting American exchange student Nancy Feingold to unravel the case. While navigating a whirl of black-tie parties and secret dining societies, the girls discover a surfeit of suspects.

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored. Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don't go for girls like Cam Emerson. She knew from the second she met him that he didn't belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie. So she shelved him next to the supermodels and rock stars and took her place on her own shelf - the one with the flannel-clad, pasty-faced comic book nerds. Most of her boyfriends have existed between the pages of books, but rather than worrying over her own lacking love life, she puts all her energy into playing Cupid, using her job at the book bar, Wasted Words, as her stomping ground. Tyler Knight always looks on the bright side. His career-ending injury turned into a job as a sports agent. A horrible breakup led him to Cam, his quirky, smart roommate who is far more beautiful than she realizes. She's made it perfectly clear she's not interested in him - not like that at least - but if she ever changes her mind, he won't hesitate. Because he doesn't see the lines she's drawn between them, as much as she insists that they're there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences, they're a match well made. 1.
