The Bonneville Hotel is the best kept secret in Mayfair: its art deco suites and glittering ballrooms a former home-away-from-home for royalty and film stars alike. Recent years haven't been kind, but thanks to Events Manager Rosie, the Bonneville is reclaiming some of its old cachet as a chic retro-glam wedding venue. While Rosie's weddings are the ultimate in romance, Rosie herself isn't; she's focused on the details, not the dramas. But when the hotel owner appoints his eccentric son Joe to the Bonneville staff, Rosie finds herself up against an unprecedented challenge: a rival whose predilection for the unconventional could derail not only Rosie's own career, but the most elaborate, high-profile wedding the Bonneville has ever seen.

Izzy and Bobby were best friends, since before they even started school together in the first grade. Why not? After all, their fathers’ spreads were next door to each other. Well, next door, if you consider their houses being almost five miles apart, in beautiful new state of Wyoming, in the late 1800s. They were always best friends, yet never becoming what Izzy had hoped. She had given up on him ever loving her as more than friends, when a handsome young man moved into the next ranch over and they fell deeply in love with each other. Women being women and men being men, even in the late nineteenth century, they could hardly keep their hands off each other. Though they each had commitments to God as well as to themselves, that they would each stay virgins until their wedding night, it was very hard for them not to have sex. The want and then the need for each other were almost overpowering. Would they be able to stay true to their commitment? And would Bobby turn bitter for the love he could have had, or would he find a love of his own as his two best friends had found?

Die 22-jährige Kunststudentin Cora kommt eines Nachmittags früher nach Hause. Und ertappt ihre jüngere Schwester mit deren Nachhilfelehrer Gi. Der Übeltäter schafft es gerade noch, hastig sein Hemd zuzuknöpfen, bevor ihn Cora in hohem Bogen vor die Tür setzt. Wie zufällig scheinen sich Coras und Gis Wege danach immer wieder zu kreuzen. Die beiden kommen sich näher, doch Cora ist sich unsicher, ob Gi wirklich etwas für sie empfindet. Zu allem Unglück lassen ihr die Sticheleien ihrer Mutter keine Ruhe. Denn diese behauptet felsenfest: »Mit deinen altbackenen Klamotten schlägst du noch jeden Mann in die Flucht!« Doch Cora fühlt sich wohl in hochgeschlossener Bluse, Schlabberpulli und Tüllrock. Kann sie trotz Vintage-Look Gis Herz für sich gewinnen?

The Los Angeles Times called him a "counterculture icon," and TV Guide dubbed him one of "TV's Ten Most Powerful Stars," but true aficionados simply call him "The Hoff." Don't Hassel the Hoff follows David Hasselhoff's phenomenal career, from his earliest childhood role in Peter Pan to his latest adventure, starring in Mel Brooks's Tony award-winning musical, The Producers. There is no better time to celebrate Hasselhoff's life and a career that continues to grow and thrive. As the star of the extremely popular classic television shows, "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider," Hasselhoff is an international mega-star, with platinum album sales and starring roles on Broadway and London's West End. As this fascinating memoir reveals, there's more to this handsome superstar than great hair, and legs that look good while running down a beach. "The Hoff" is also a smart, caring man with a huge heart. "This book is my opportunity to print something from my heart, to tell the truth about what happened to me on the long and winding road from Baltimore to Baywatch to Broadway – and beyond. And the truth is not to be found in tabloid stories but in my actions: I am a good father and tried to be a good husband. I love people and the emotional rollercoaster that goes with human relationships. I love all the bewildering, crazy and wonderful things that life has to offer. This book is about my successes and my failures, my strengths and my weaknesses. And, above all, it is about the hope contained in the Knight Rider slogan: "One man can make a difference." --David Hasselhoff Full of behind-the-scenes looks at Hasselhoff's television series, celebrations of his proudest moments, and the truths about his struggles with relationships and alcohol, Don't Hassel the Hoff is both highly entertaining and deeply personal, making this an engrossing page-turner from start to finish. Long live "The Hoff."
