A daring deception… Desperate to escape her vile fiancé, Lady Clara devises a bold lie—that she’s pregnant with another man’s child. With her reputation in tatters, Clara flees to Scotland to live out her days in disgrace, resigned to her fate as a spinster…until she claps eyes on the powerful and wickedly handsome Laird Hunt MacLarin. She’s the answer to his curse… Laird of an ancient clan, Hunt needs an heir, but he comes from a long line of men cursed to die before the birth of their firstborn. When the Duke of Autenberry approaches him with a proposition—marry my ruined sister—it seems the perfect solution. Even better, the defiant lass stirs him to his very soul. No escaping the truth... Except marriage cannot set them free. No matter how much Hunt desires her. No matter how much Clara burns for him. Soon she is falling for her husband, but is love enough to end the curse? Or is the tragic history of the MacLarin Clan doomed to repeat itself?

Mavis Gallant is the modern master of what Henry James called the international story, the fine-grained evocation of the quandaries of people who must make their way in the world without any place to call their own. The irreducible complexity of the very idea of home is especially at issue in the stories Gallant has written about Montreal, where she was born, although she has lived in Paris for more than half a century. Varieties of Exile, Russell Banks's extensive new selection from Gallant's work, demonstrates anew the remarkable reach of this writer's singular art. Among its contents are three previously uncollected stories, as well as the celebrated semi-autobiographical sequence about Linnet Muir—stories that are wise, funny, and full of insight into the perils and promise of growing up and breaking loose.

For decades, scandalous rumors and sensational tabloid headlines have obscured the truth about one the most famous and intriguing families in modern history: the real players, the real relationships, behind the closed doors of the Gotti dynasty. Until now. Here at last is the explosive memoir that captures the Gottis as they are-unvarnished, raw, and real. And who better to tell this no-hold-barred story than their most famous daughter? Victoria Gotti never intended to reveal the inside story of the Gotti household, but with the pressing need to finally set the record straight came the realization that only she can do so, once and for all. Daughter to the late John Gotti, sister to John A. "Junior" Gotti and three other siblings, single mother to three sons with whom she shared reality television stardom on Growing Up Gotti, an outspoken columnist and bestselling author, Victoria Gotti delivers a candid, colorful, and brutally honest family portrait that reads like a confidential file, filled with deeply personal reflections and never-before-published photographs. With the trial of "Junior" Gotti poised to continue the high drama of the Gotti story, fascination with the icons of this only-in-New-York clan is stronger than ever. Victoria Gotti's bombshell revelations and stunning insider secrets make This Family of Mine the essential chronicle in the ultimate American family saga.
