Ellie Somerset is a great advertising copywriter going nowhere fast - a boyfriend who is always at work, a tendency to dress like a short-sighted bag lady and a Creative Director who rejects her fresh ideas - they all conspire to keep her just treading water. Even her Great Aunt Edith, a demon at filthy scrabble, has a better social life than she does. All that changes when Jack Wolfe becomes her boss. Whilst everyone else at the agency thinks he's Heathcliff in jeans, Ellie just sees a stalking, scowling Alpha male with a nasty redundancy plan up his sleeve. As Jack makes it his mission to smarten up Ellie's attitude and her appearance, it's time for her to prove herself. But that means getting closer to this very sexy, very wicked man, and as she does Ellie discovers that this particular Heathcliff has an awful lot to hide.

An Evil Guest

Genre: Fiction

Lovecraft mets Blade Runner. This is a stand-alone supernatural horror novel with a 30s noir atmosphere. Gene Wolfe can write in whatever genre he wants--and always with superb style and profound depth. Now following his World Fantasy Award winner, Soldier of Sidon, and his stunning Pirate Freedom, Wolfe turns to the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft and the weird science tale of supernatural horror. Set a hundred years in the future, An Evil Guest is a story of an actress who becomes the lover of both a mysterious sorcerer and private detective, and an even more mysterious and powerful rich man, who has been to the human colony on an alien planet and learned strange things there. Her loyalties are divided--perhaps she loves them both. The detective helps her to release her inner beauty and become a star overnight. And the rich man is the benefactor of a play she stars in. But something is very wrong. Money can be an evil guest, but there are other evils. As Lovecraft said, "That is not dead which can eternal lie." At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Der neue Roman der Nummer-1-Bestseller-Autorin Mhairi McFarlane. Nach "Wir in drei Worten", "Vielleicht mag ich dich morgen" und „Es muss wohl an dir liegen“ begeistert die Britin ihre Leserinnen mit einem neuen romantischen, witzigen und authentischen Liebes-Roman. Edie findet nichts schlimmer als Hochzeiten. Wenn der Bräutigam dann auch noch ihr Kollege Jack ist, der bis vor wenigen Wochen heftig mit ihr geflirtet hat, will Edie vor allem eins: flüchten. Den ersten Teil der Hochzeits-Feier von Charlotte und Jack steht Edie allerdings tapfer durch. Als sie später in den Park geht, um wenigstens einmal kurz durchzuatmen, steht Jack plötzlich vor ihr und küsst sie. Dummerweise sind sie nicht allein. Charlotte beobachtet die beiden und schon bald droht dieser kleine Moment der Schwäche, Edies ganzes Leben zu zerstören. Der darauf folgende Online-Shitstorm zwingt Edie, ihr Londoner Leben hinter sich zu lassen und Zuflucht bei ihrer Familie in Nottingham zu suchen. Dort läuft es aber auch nicht rund. Denn die Auszeit gewährt Edies Chef ihr nur, wenn sie den derzeit in Nottingham lebenden Schauspieler Elliot Owen trifft - um als Ghostwriterin seine bestseller-verdächtige Biographie zu verfassen. Dummerweise entpuppt sich Elliot nicht als charmanter Star - ganz im Gegenteil. Zurück in die Provinz, Opfer von Online-Mobbing und einem neurotischen Schauspieler ausgesetzt - so hatte Edie sich ihr Leben wirklich nicht vorgestellt! Herz, Humor und authentische Figuren – das Erfolgsrezept von Mhairi McFarlane.

Adam Ross ist ein Meister der unerwarteten Pointen, jede seiner sieben Stories berührt, schlägt den Leser in seinen Bann und trifft am Ende wie ein Blitz: Ob es eine junge Frau auf dem Weg zu einer Affäre ist, ein ungleiches Brüderpaar im tragischsten Moment seiner Rivalität oder ein liebenswerter Loser, dessen Vertrauensseligkeit ihn all seine Ersparnisse kostet – mühelos und elektrisierend erzählt Adam Ross von dem dramatischen, oft zutiefst komischen Augenblick, in dem die Dinge außer Kontrolle geraten. Und weckt dabei soviel Mitgefühl für seine Figuren, dass wir nur allzu gern mit ihnen in ihr Verhängnis laufen
