Une dangereuse attirance - Retour à Jenkins Cove (Harlequin Black Rose)

https://www.kobo.com/us/fr/ebook/une-dangereuse-attirance-re...
Une dangereuse attirance, de Debra CowanAux yeux de tous, Walker McClain est irréprochable: c'est un pompier consciencieux et attentif aux autres, réputé pour sa générosité et son professionnalisme. Mais sous cette apparence lisse, est-il en fait le dangereux tueur qui, depuis quelques mois, s'en prend aux sans-abris d'Oklahoma City? Jen Lawson est sur le qui vive. Chargée d'enquêter sur McClain en secret, elle a en effet découvert que la femme de celui-ci a été assassinée deux ans plus tôt, justement par un SDF, lequel n'a jamais été appréhendé. McClain se serait-il ainsi juré de venger lui-même ce meurtre impuni? Résolue à éclaircir l'affaire - et fascinée par la personnalité énigmatique du séduisant McClain, Jen décide de tout mettre en auvre pour gagner sa confiance… Mais surtout pour repousser l'attirance qu'elle éprouve pour lui, et qui lui souffle qu'il est innocent…Retour à Jenkins Cove, de Patricia RosemoorJenkins Cove… Lexie y a passé une jeunesse merveilleuse. Jusqu'à cet hiver tragique, où Edward Shea, l'homme qu'elle aimait passionnément, est mort dans un accident. Un drame dont elle ne s'est jamais remise, et qui a provoqué son départ. Alors, quand, de retour après douze ans d'absence, au détour d'une rue, elle tombe nez à nez… avec Edward, Lexie est totalement bouleversée. Il lui affirme avoir été enlevé, à l'époque - doit-elle le croire? Doit-elle aussi faire un lien entre le retour de celui-ci et les agressions dont elle-même est victime depuis quelque temps? Autant de questions auxquelles Lexie doit répondre, avant de révéler à Edward son secret: au moment de sa disparition, elle était enceinte de lui… Surtout, doit-elle lui révéler qu'au moment de sa disparition, elle était enceinte de lui?

The Jenkins Cycle Boxed Set

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/the-jenkins-cycle-bo...
The Jenkins Cycle" is a series of dark paranormal thrillers. Each book is also available individually. If you enjoy the body-hopping concepts presented in novels like "Tale Of The Body Thief," or "Every Day," then this is the series for you. KICK They say suicides are damned for eternity. But if possessing the bodies of violent criminals is Hell, then Dan Jenkins will take it. And he does, every time a portal arrives to whisk him from his ghostly exile in limbo. Dan rides the living like a supernatural jockey, pushing out their consciousness and taking over. He doesn't know where their minds go while he's in charge, and for the most part doesn't care. For three weeks at a time, it's a chance to relax and watch movies, read fantasy novels, and have random conversations with perfect strangers. Normally, before the villain returns to kick him out, Dan dishes out a final serving of justice and leaves the world a safer place. It's one of the rules if he wants more rides, and he's happy to oblige. For a part-time dead guy, it's a pretty good gig. And then he meets her. FOOL'S RIDE Dan Jenkins is back, body hopping a scumbag at a time in his quest for the perfect ride. He doesn't need much. Premium cable TV, good books, a well-stocked pantry, and he's set. But the Great Whomever has other plans. After six months waiting in limbo, Dan catches a ride as a horror novelist whose gruesome stories aren't just fiction. Later, he hunts a man who's escaped justice for far too long. Then, in his greatest challenge yet, he strays too deeply into the lives of the people he loves: his most foolish ride of all. HOPPER HOUSE Dan meets a mysterious woman named Rose who says he's not alone. Like him, she's dead and possesses the bodies of awful people. Unlike him, she doesn't care what they've done, and she hides a secret shame. Through Rose, Dan learns there are others like them, living in the shadows, hopping from ride to ride chasing excitement and chemical highs. For them, morality

Semi-Tough

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/semi-tough-2...
Made into a hilarious and timeless film starring Burt Reynolds, Kris Kristofferson, and Jill Clayburgh, and recently named number seven on Sports Illustrated's Top 100 Sports Books of All Time, Semi-Tough is Dan Jenkins's masterpiece and considered by many to be the funniest sports book ever written. The novel follows the outsize adventures of Billy Clyde Puckett, star halfback for the New York Giants, whose team has come to Los Angeles for an epic duel with the despised "dog-ass" Jets in the Super Bowl. But Billy Clyde is faced with a dual challenge: not only must he try to run over a bunch of malevolencies incarnate, but he has also been commissioned by a New York book publisher to keep a journal of the events leading up to, including, and following the game. Infused with Dan Jenkins's characteristic joie de vivre and replete with cigarettes, whiskey, and wild women, Semi-Tough is an uproarious romp through a lost era of professional sports that will have any armchair quarterback falling out of his or her recliner in hysterics on a semi-regular basis.

In 1935 Betsy Throckmorton's father lures her from a New York job with Time magazine back to Claybelle, Texas, with the promise that she can be the editor of his Claybelle Standard-Times. Betsy brings along her husband, Ted Winton, an easterner and Yale graduate to whom she is constantly explaining Texas. Ted will run Ben Throckmorton's radio station, KVAT, where Booty and Them Others sing in rivalry with the better known WBAP Light Crust Doughboys. In Texas, it's the middle of the Depression and the Drought. And Prohibition is barely over, liquor still a controversy. Every city has its hobo camp, and Claybelle has the Star of Hope Mission. But it is also the time of new oil money, high living, infidelity, and tangled love triangles. Betsy and Ted chain-smoke and drink often and long, they wouldn't miss a Paschal High School or TCU football game, they party at the Casino on Jacksboro Highway, and dine at Claybelle's Shadylawn Country Club. Betsy is a serious journalist though, and she sets out to change the paper, clashing with the managing editor when she claims international not state news belongs on page one. She clashes with the columnists when she tries to sharpen their leads. The Texas Murder Machine becomes her big story, when she suspects that Texas Rangers may be killing innocent young men to collect rewards offered by the Texas Bankers Association. Betsy's journalistic determination leads to a personal tragedy that changes her life forever-and makes her a determined, relentless newswoman.
