But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap. From the Paperback edition.

Air Bound For as far back as she can remember, Airiana Ridell has always been aware of her extraordinary gift. She can intuit revealing and illuminating “patterns” in the air around her—whether in a spray of mist, in billowing clouds, or in the dense swirls of an impenetrable fog. Her abilities led to her placement in a secret government training facility when she was a child, but everything changed after her mother was murdered. Airiana fled the program, but she couldn’t outrun the desperate members of a shadowy cabal who want her, who need her, who will kill to get her. Kidnapped and held aboard a ship bound for dangerous seas, her only chance for rescue is Maxim Prakenskii. He has his reasons for helping her, but he isn’t about to reveal them to Airiana. Not yet. Not as the two are drawn together as moth to flame. Not when there are so many secrets yet untold that could shatter the quaint community of Sea Haven and all who reside there…

Harbingers of a Century: The Novels of Frank Norris represents a major reassessment of the California writer's long fiction. Lawrence E. Hussman argues persuasively that Norris should be viewed as a life-long philosophical materialist who developed an existential ethic of love for «another» and compassion for «the other.» His novels rehearse many of the themes of Norris's American fiction-writing successors, including desire and disillusionment in national context. Along the way, Hussman proves to be a knowledgeable guide through the thicket of previous Norris criticism.
Psychiatrist Katherine Allen retreats to a distant cabin in the Oregon Cascades to privately grieve the recent death of her husband. But what she finds is the past that has haunted her for her entire life. Can she somehow find the healing and the love she so desperately needs?
