Anyone But Cade by Penelope Bloom

Anyone But Cade by Penelope BloomThe second novel in USA Today bestselling author Penelope Bloom’s Anyone But… series turns up the heat and hilarity with a story about second chances and promises worth breaking.

After Cade King cost me everything, I vowed I’d never fall for him again—even if he became rich and megafamous.

Go figure.

Now Cade is back with his billion-dollar company…and his ability to radiate attraction like a tempting Wi-Fi hotspot. Not to mention his tendency to have worse impulse control than a chimpanzee.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it a little when I arrested him for disorderly conduct. Unfortunately, I think Cade liked it a little too. So when he asks for my help, I know exactly what I should say. But something’s fried the circuits in my brain. It doesn’t help that I can practically feel my ovaries humming to life just from standing within fifty yards of him. The bastard.

Still, Cade doesn’t know the first thing about commitment. He lives completely in the moment. I’d need to have a recurring case of amnesia to believe he could change. I guess only time will tell which one of us is the real fool in the end.

Disarm by Karina Halle

Disarm by Karina HalleKarina Halle, the New York Times bestselling author of Discretion, lifts the veil off a privileged family dynasty to reveal a wealth of secrets and dangerous obsessions.

Seraphine Dumont seems to have it all: she’s gorgeous, brilliant, and part of one of France’s most illustrious dynasties. But underneath the facade, Seraphine struggles to hold it all together. Besides grieving her adoptive father’s suspicious and sudden death, she also shares a tenuous role in the family business with Blaise, her in-name-only cousin. As tumultuous as their history is, he may be the only member of the deceptive Dumont family she can trust.

Seraphine is a temptation Blaise can’t resist. The torch he’s carried for years still burns. It’s his secret—a quiet obsession just out of reach. Until his brother demands that he spy on the increasingly cagey Seraphine, whom their father considers a dispensable Dumont outlier. But the more Blaise watches her and the closer he gets, the more he sees Seraphine may have every right to be suspicious. And she could be the next one in danger—from his own family.

As blood runs hot and hearts give in, Seraphine and Blaise have only each other. But can their love survive the secrets they’re about to uncover?

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller Torrey

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller TorreyEnter to win one of ten signed hardcover copies.

The book shows how the gods, and then formal religions, are virtually inevitable outcomes of the cognitive evolution of the human brain. It integrates recent findings on brain function with archeological, anthropological, child development, neuropsychology, and animal behavior studies to offer answers to questions such as the following:

• Where and when did the first gods appear, and why did they appear when they did?

• Why is it very unlikely that Neanderthals had gods?

• Why were most of the major religions organized in the brief “Axial Age” between 800 and 200 BCE?

A reviewer for the journal Religion (2018, 48: 500) said: “This is the book I have been waiting for…I have no doubt that it will set the standard in the field for at least a decade or more.”
Publishers Weekly added: “Presented in a manner that is accessible to nonscientists […] (an) insightful, thought-provoking work.”

Professor Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University wrote: “A unique scholarly approach to the subject that is sure to be influential and highly regarded.”

National History Book Services said: “Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods makes a very convincing argument. And the fact that the book avoids polarizing the topic with unnecessary anti-religious sentiment will hopefully see many more people read it.”

Now available in paperback.
