Whitley Johnson's dream summer of shopping, partying and tanning on the beach has just turned into a nightmare. Because Dad didn't tell her he doesn't live by the beach anymore, or that he's no longer a bachelor. He's picked up and moved to a tiny, lame town called Hamilton and gotten himself a fiance. A fiance whose son just happens to be what's-his-name from last week's drunken graduation party one night stand. Just freakin' great. As if the summer couldn't get worse, Dad seems to forget Whitley's even there. She doesn't fit in with his perfect new country club family, and Whitley does what any kid lucky enough to go all summer unsupervised does: she parties. Hard. So hard that she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose: a younger future step-sister who is just about the only person she's ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn't 'do friends') and a smoking hot, sweet guy who isn't her step brother (yet) and who actually seems to care for her. It will take all three of them to convince her that they're not phoneys, and to get Whitley to get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together. From the author of The Duff - now a major film starring Bella Thorne, Mae Whitman and Alison Janney.
Sherwood Forest, home of Oberon, Titania, Puck, Cobweb, Peaseblossom and the rest of the mob, has been whittled away by urban development. It's time to move on, the fairies decide. Sid, their captive, a kindly if gruff young car mechanic, teaches Titania to drive, and on Midsummer's Eve the party sets off in a battered and smelly old bus. They're bound for the New Forest, where they hope to be able to regenerate their magic. The fairies' journey is full of excitement. At a village fair, they show the morris dancers how to cut previously undreamt-of capers. Titania falls in love with a human baby and steals her from her pram, starting a nationwide search for the missing infant. The fairies then link up with a group of New Age travellers on their way to Stonehenge, who befriend them almost without question. Finally, a fight to the death between Titania and the terrifying and sadistic Morgan-le-Fey must take place before everyone can settle down into some form of harmony and peace.
I have no arms to perform my task. I hide behind a human mask. Because I have but darkness for face, my only tool is the human race. It takes very little to make them do evil, It's so simple to make them fear. I love to frighten, I love to scare, I'm a cold winter's dream, A Midsummer's Nightmare

When a Christmas Eve blizzard left Clydesdale stranded with Santa and seven elves, the resourceful detective makes the best of the situation. Clydesdale, Santa and all the elves hit it off and have a Christmas to remember. Several years later Santa appears at Clydesdale's door with worries about a troubled production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Nasty poison pen letters are just the tip of the iceberg of a case that eventually includes hit and run, assault, murder and rape. Clydesdale goes undercover by playing a bit part in the play and finds an oversupply of eccentric, troubled and perhaps deranged suspects. The oversexed, undersized, but well-endowed and detective discovers his personal strengths and weaknesses are well suited for the moody and overly dramatic personalities of the theater. When he goes undercover, he finds some of his best work is done between the sheets.
