Elle Cinder's world was turned upside down a year ago with her father's death and the loss of her inheritance, and now she works as a cleaning woman, hoping that one day she can return to school. She has found that her heart is too broken by her father's betrayal to believe in love or that she will ever find it. That is until her friend Claire forces her to come to an exclusive party as support. But little does Elle know that she will meet one of the three Charmant brothers. The brothers who run their family's diverse empire. In the youngest brother Luke, Elle finds a man who is her intellectual equal and whose mere presence has started her heart on a healing path. For Luke, upon setting eyes on Elle, he is finally able to experience the 'click' his mother and father have always talked about, describing it as the moment when two souls recognize one another as their match. It is how his parents met: they clicked on a subway, and for Luke, a love like that of his parents is all he has ever wanted. But falling in love in the span of a few hours is the easy part; for Elle, letting go of the pain of the last year and allowing her heart to heal will be much harder. Can a modern woman have a fairy tale style happily ever after?

#1 New York Times bestselling author and Oscar–winning producer Brian Grazer has written a brilliantly entertaining and eye-opening exploration of curiosity and the life-changing effects it can have on every person’s life. From Academy Award–winning producer Brian Grazer, New York Times bestseller A Curious Mind offers a brilliant peek into the “curiosity conversations” that inspired him to create some of the world’s most iconic movies and television shows. He shows how curiosity has been the “secret” that fueled his rise as one of Hollywood’s leading producers and creative visionaries, and how all of us can channel its power to lead bigger and more rewarding lives. Grazer has spent most of his life exploring curiosity through what he terms “curiosity conversations” with some of the most interesting people in the world, including spies, royals, scientists, politicians, moguls, Nobel laureates, artists…anyone whose story might broaden his worldview. These discussions sparked the creative inspiration behind many of his movies and TV shows, including Splash, 24, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Arrested Development, 8 Mile, J. Edgar, Empire, and many others. A Curious Mind is not only a fascinating page-turner—it also offers a blueprint for how we can awaken our own curiosity and use it as a superpower in our lives. Whether you’re looking to strengthen your management style at work, uncover a new source of creativity, or become a better romantic partner, this book—and its lessons on the power of curiosity—can change your life.

Complications ensue when her live-in love reveals some alarming imperfections, the irresistible artist who dumped her wants her back... and what is up with the mystery man living in the charming one-bedroom she left behind? Jacquie has been looking for love in other people's homes all over town, but could the key to her happiness lie right under her very own roof?

After years of heartache, soul searching, and personal growth, Jerry and Mary remarried. Today, with their union stronger than ever, they have dedicated themselves to helping countless other people with Asperger's and autism lead lives of dignity.

“A joy to read—a portrait of a place, a way of life, and a marriage by a reporter who turns out to be the world’s last extant romantic” (Joan Didion). In this Tracy-Hepburn romance, a sophisticated New York intellectual is charmed by a down-to-earth newspaperman. Frankie’s Place is the tale of a summer cottage and the story that unfolds under its roof. Jim Sterba is the down-to-earth newspaperman who charms the New York sophisticate, Frances FitzGerald, after several visits to her writer’s retreat on the coast in Maine. Frankie’s place is a secluded little house out of harm’s way and the clamor of the modern world. Icy plunges into the Somes Sound christen their island mornings; then there is a long period of dutiful writing followed, in the late afternoon, by rigorous mountain walks, forays for wild mushrooms, and sailing. In the evenings Jim and Frankie prepare simple island meals as they talk about everything from the stories or books they’re working on to the bigger issue of Jim’s reunion with his long-lost father. Although they couldn’t have had more disparate childhoods—Jim grew up on a struggling Michigan farm while Frankie lived in a Manhattan town house and an English country estate—their shared summer rituals have them falling in love before our eyes. “A highly entertaining tale of love, family, and place . . . It took me places I hadn’t expected to go. I loved it.” —Tom Brokaw
