Noblesse devoir et autres balivernes
Si j'étais une duchesse TOME 1 Un poste de préceptrice chez un duc ? Voilà une offre que Lily ne peut pas laisser passer, si elle veut asseoir la réputation de son agence de placement. Certes, elle n’a aucune candidate à lui envoyer, mais hors de question de renoncer pour si peu : elle ira elle-même se présenter à l’entretien, quitte à s’inventer des références. Seulement, Lily ne s’attendait pas à une demeure aussi grandiose, ni à un duc si... impressionnant. Et, alors qu’elle se tient sous le regard scrutateur de cet homme qui pourrait anéantir d’un mot l’avenir de son agence, son mensonge lui paraît soudain beaucoup moins opportun. Sauf qu’il est maintenant trop tard pour reculer... Dans un style pétillant et espiègle, Megan Frampton nous offre une vision dépoussiérée de la Régence anglaise, qui fait la part belle à l’humour. A propos de l'auteur :Megan Frampton publie des romances historiques sous son vrai nom, et des romances contemporaines sous le pseudonyme de Megan Caldwell. Elle aime la couleur noire, le gin, les beaux Anglais aux cheveux sombres et les boucles d’oreille volumineuses – mais pas dans cet ordre. Elle vit à Brooklyn avec son mari et son fils.
Duchesse malgr elle

As a successful merchant, he has little in common with the rakehell youth Jessica once knew. But when newly widowed Jessica steps aboard his ship for a transatlantic passage, seven years' worth of denied pleasures are held in check by nothing more than a few layers of silk--and the certainty that surrender will consume them both. . . With a special letter from Sylvia Day

Journey to the End of the Night
When it was published in 1932, this revolutionary first fiction redefined the art of the novel with its black humor, its nihilism, and its irreverent, explosive writing style, and made Louis-Ferdinand Celine one of France's--and literature's--most important 20th-century writers. The picaresque adventures of Bardamu, the sarcastic and brilliant antihero of Journey to the End of the Night move from the battlefields of World War I (complete with buffoonish officers and cowardly soldiers), to French West Africa, the United States, and back to France in a style of prose that's lyrical, hallucinatory, and hilariously scathing toward nearly everybody and everything. Yet, beneath it all one can detect a gentle core of idealism.
One Eyed Dukes Are Wild
When does proper behavior deserve a deliciously improper reward? The scandalously unmarried Lady Margaret Sawford is looking for adventure—and is always up for a challenge. Her curiosity is aroused by a dangerous-looking stranger with an eye patch, an ideal companion for the life she longs for, no matter what Society might say. So when the piratical gentleman turns out to be a duke—and just as boringly proper as any other nobleman—she can't help but incite him to walk on the wild side. Well-heeled, well-mannered, and well beyond any interest in society's expectations, the Duke of Lasham is tired of being perfect. Margaret's lush beauty and gently laughing eyes are an irresistible temptation to embrace the imperfect—and her. But if a little misbehavior is appealing, unleashing his wild side is completely seductive—as long as the lovely Margaret is the object of his passion . . .
Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media's harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.
