Le r gne des loups
Quand un loup choisit sa compagne, c’est pour l’éternité... 1/ Alors qu’elle traque un groupe de créatures nocturnes qui sèment la terreur dans la région, Marijka rencontre un homme dans une auberge. Magnifique, troublant, il exerce sur elle une étrange attirance. Un désir aussi violent que dangereux, auquel elle a le plus grand mal à résister. 2/ Trouver le remède qui empêchera les loups-garous de se transformer en monstres, voilà la mission de Daphné. Et garder une distance prudente avec ses cobayes est la condition pour ne pas devenir leur première victime. Une condition qu’elle a le plus grand mal à respecter lorsque Konstantin rejoint le groupe de ses patients. D’une séduction diabolique, il la couve des yeux à chacune de leurs confrontations, et la promesse qu’elle lit dans son regard éveille en elle les plus troublants des fantasmes... 3/ Trahie ! Folle de rage, Beth la femme-louve fixe Stephan, son fiancé. Ainsi, l’homme dont elle s’apprêtait à devenir la compagne est en réalité un chasseur de loups-garous, et ses promesses n’étaient que des mensonges destinés à traquer ceux de son peuple. Mais, alors qu’elle s’apprête à fuir, Beth croise le regard de Stephan et sent son cœur manquer un battement. Car ce qu’elle vient de lire dans ses yeux ressemble à de la culpabilité, à du désir... à de l’amour ?

Les Misérables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, focusing on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. Examining the nature of law and grace, the novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love. More than a quarter of the novel is devoted to essays that argue a moral point or display Hugo's encyclopedic knowledge. The topics Hugo addresses include cloistered religious orders, the construction of the Paris sewers, argot, and the street urchins of Paris. Even when not turning to other subjects outside his narrative, Hugo sometimes interrupts the straightforward recitation of events, his voice and control of the story line unconstrained by time and sequence. The story begins in 1815 in Digne, as the peasant Jean Valjean, just released from 19 years' imprisonment in the galleys—five for stealing bread for his starving sister and her family and fourteen more for numerous escape attempts—is turned away by innkeepers because his yellow passport marks him as a former convict. He sleeps on the street, angry and bitter. Digne's benevolent Bishop Myriel gives him shelter. At night, Valjean runs off with Myriel's silverware. When the police capture Valjean, Myriel pretends that he has given the silverware to Valjean and presses him to take two silver candlesticks as well, as if he had forgotten to take them. The police accept his explanation and leave. Myriel tells Valjean that his life has been spared for God, and that he should use money from the silver candlesticks to make an honest man of himself. Six years pass and Valjean, using the alias Monsieur Madeleine, has become a wealthy factory owner and is appointed mayor.
'It was the middle of November, I was supposed to be out jogging, but instead I was sitting at my breakfast table talking about men, sex, werewolves and vampires. I should be concentrating on my dangerous situation - the ardeur between me and Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, and Richard, my werewolf lover, is reaching new levels, evolving into something altogether new, acting with a will of its own.' But instead Anita Blake, preternatural expert and feared executioner, is less interested in vampire politics than in the ancient, ordinary dread that women down the ages have experienced: am I pregnant? And, if so, is the father a vampire, a werewolf or someone else entirely. And being a Federal Marshall, known for raising the dead and hunting vampires, is no way to bring up a baby.

Psychotic shape-shifters, duplicitous vampires and sexually deviant were-leopards. And that's just my friends. I'm Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter and Federal Marshall. My life is more complicated than ever, caught up between obligations to the living and to the undead. Now there is a vampire serial killer preying on strippers.

Therese the Philosopher
This first-person narrative by Therese is the charming tale of an innocent's initiation into sexual happiness. Self-discovery in a convent leads her to her confessor, Father Dirrag, and she is soon launched upon the path of reason that convinces her that passion and love of the Deity are equal gifts of God. With additional mentors, Therese learns that sensations are but a part of temperament, as natural as hunger and thirst, and all may be satisfied as long as it does not harm others.
