Reissue Originally Published August 1993 Annotated e-book edition Juliana Anderson is content with the life she’s built for herself—running the best bed-and-breakfast in sleepy Benton, Massachusetts. For excitement, she dresses up in Victorian garb and serves delectable breakfasts and dinners to her mostly elderly guests. But then Webster Donovan arrives—tall, rugged, sexy, and incredibly arrogant—and turns her world upside down. Web’s got a problem. His first novel was a huge bestseller—but now he’s struggling to write his second book. He hopes that a six-week stay in the middle of nowhere will force him to focus. But one conversation with the intriguingly prim-and-proper “Miss Anderson” proves distracting. He’s used to wrapping women around his little finger, and her no-nonsense attitude is a breath of fresh air. Verbal sparring with his hostess quickly becomes his favorite form of procrastination… Throw in a bad case of the flu, a bevy of boisterous nuns, the gleamingly handsome town sheriff who likes to dance with Juliana at the local roadside bar, a broken rib or two, and some carefully guarded secrets and misunderstandings… With footnoted commentary about everything from life without cellphones and laptops in 1992/1993 (when Future Perfect was written, published, and is still set) to thoughts on writing romance and how much Romancelandia—and her own writing—has changed in the past twenty-five years, Suzanne Brockmann presents a special annotated edition of the romance novel that kicked off her writing career. Set in 1993, Future Perfect is a full length novel of 60K words (66K words with annotations) or 220 pages, originally published in August, 1993.

What connects the "miracle on the Hudson" to the planning of the French railway system, or the mysterious outbreak of strange smells in downtown Manhattan to the invention of the Internet? With his characteristic flair for multidisciplinary storytelling, Steven Johnson shows in Future Perfect that what lies behind these and many other fascinating human stories is the concept of networked thinking. Exploring a new vision of progress, Johnson argues that networked thinking holds the key to an incredible range of human achievements, and can transform everything from local government to drug research to arts funding and education. Future Perfect paints a compelling portrait of a new model of political change that is already on the rise, and shows that despite Western political systems hopelessly gridlocked by old ideas, change for the better can happen, and that new solutions are on the horizon. 'If you're a pessimist-and chances are you are-you should read Future Perfect. In fact, read it even if you're an optimist, because Mr. Johnson's book will give you lots of material to brighten the outlook of your gloomy friends...it envisions a new political movement' Wall Street Journal 'An informative, tech-savvy and provocative vision of a new and more democratic public philosophy. A breath of fresh air a breath of fresh air in an age of gridlock, cynicism and disillusionment' San Francisco Chronicle 'A buoyant and hopeful book ... Future Perfect reminds us we already have the treatment. We just need to use it' Boston Globe Steven Johnson is the US bestselling author of Where Good Ideas Come From, The Invention of Air, The Ghost Map, and Everything Bad Is Good for You, and is the editor of the anthology The Innovator's Cookbook. He is the founder of a variety of influential websites - most recently, outside.in - and writes for Time, Wired, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He lives in Marin County, California, with his wife and three sons.

The Blueprint trilogy takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. Following a bio-terrorist attack, the population now lives within comfortable Citidomes. MindValues advocate acceptance and non-attachment. The BodyPerfect cult encourages a tall thin androgynous appearance, and looks are everything. This first book, Future Perfect, tells the story of Caia, an intelligent and highly educated young woman. In spite of severe governmental and societal strictures, Caia finds herself becoming attracted to her co-worker, Mac, a rebel whose questioning of their so-called utopian society both adds to his allure and encourages her own questioning of the status quo. As Mac introduces her to illegal and subversive information she is drawn into a forbidden, dangerous world, becoming alienated from her other co-workers and resmates, the companions with whom she shares her residence. In a society where every thought and action are controlled, informers are everywhere; whom can she trust? When she and Mac are sent on an outdoor research mission, Caia’s life changes irreversibly. A dark undercurrent runs through this story; the enforcement of conformity through fear, the fostering of distorted and damaging attitudes towards forbidden love, manipulation of appearance and even the definition of beauty, will appeal to both an adult and young adult audience.
