When CEO David Strong is strong-armed into demonstrating Kama Sutra yoga poses for a couples class—which is as awkward as it sounds—he’s put in one compromising position after another. On top of that, the co-instructor gets him all worked up, and she’s totally off-limits. At least she should be. Sophie DelFino has fantasized about David for over a decade. If only he weren’t so uptight and didn’t have so many rules. Of course, all those rules sure make it fun to push his buttons. And if she can get him bent out of shape enough; maybe he’ll give in to the temptation of whatever’s sparking between them.

Charlie Gibbs’ new job comes with these perks: mountain scenery, sunshine, and sex with an older woman. And murder. In the year 2050, twenty-something IT worker, Charlie Gibbs, has a problem – several problems, in fact. His boss has just been killed in mysterious circumstances. Replacement boss, fifty-year-old Dutch cougar, Ilse Teuling, is writing a sex manual and wants Charlie to help with “the practical work”. Populists have declared a coup; people are seeing visions; the clock is counting down to environmental disaster, and a murderer is on the loose, providing Charlie with the biggest problem of the lot – he’s the intended next victim and he doesn’t know why. Can Charlie simultaneously solve crime, survive political chaos, save the environment, expose a hoaxer and foil a murderer, not forgetting to service the needs of Ilse? Can he keep all his balls juggling and still come out alive? What begins as an untimely death in a small town evolves into an impassioned political movement, a greedy murder plot, and some cross-country sexcapades that will make even the most libertine blush ... But make no mistake, the plot is juicy and the tension is palpable. Jennifer Jackson, Indies Today 5-star review.

For all of you humming “I Will Survive” while watching the political debacles gracing the evening news, when getting an earful from your Limbaugh-loving brother-in-law, or as you’re ducking into the bathroom to avoid the date espousing the wisdom of those Mars versus Venus books, this book is for you. It’s a Jungle Out There gives all you smart, independent women out there the funny pranks, witty comebacks, and stalwart sources of strength you need in these trying times. With her tongue firmly in cheek and her middle finger stuck straight up in the air, Amanda Marcotte (of Pandagon.net) takes you on a tour through the perils that await any feminist who must navigate day-to-day life in the U.S., from the abstinence-only classrooms to the glass-ceiling of the office world. Drawing on her personal experiences of dealing with anti-feminists—from her years of blogging about feminism and living in the woman-unfriendly state of Texas—Marcotte brings her wit and distinct lack of patience to the topic of surviving while feminist. She doles out priceless advice along the way on how not only survive but also thrive, and even how to carve out a space for your feminist self in these oft-times hostile environments.

IF YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM... After living with penis size anxiety for most of his 50 years author, Ant Smith, decided we needed an honest self-help book on the subject. Something to turn up in search results other than the endless (and expensive) so called 'enlargement guides'. After organising London's first ever Big Small Penis Party and giving countless interviews on what it's like living with a little willy, Ant has plenty to say on the matter! You will read the only methods for penis enlargement in this book. But more importantly you will read how to overcome the anxiety itself - because without managing that, no size is ever going to lead to peace. THIS IS A REALLY TOUGH SUBJECT so there is plenty of humour, candour and real-life stories in these pages. If you are suffering yourself, or if you are body-positive, or if you are just curious THIS is a must read.

In France in 1933, two sisters, presumed to be lovers, murdered the women who employed them as maids. Known as “the Papin affair,” the incident inspired not only Jean Genet's 1947 The Maids but also an essay by Jacques Lacan that presents the sisters' crime as fueled by a narcissistic, homosexual drive that culminated in the assault. In this new investigation of the roots of the twentieth-century myth of the lesbian-as-madwoman, Christine Coffman argues that the female psychotic was the privileged object of Lacan’s effort to derive a revolutionary theory of subjectivity from the study of mental illness. Examining Lacan's early writings, French surrealism, Djuna Barnes’ Nightwood, and H.D.’s homoerotic fiction in light of feminist and queer theory, Insane Passions argues that the psychotic woman that fascinates modernist writers returns with a murderous vengeance in a number of late twentieth-century films—including Basic Instinct, Sister My Sister, Single White Female, and Murderous Maids. Marking the limit of social acceptability, the “psychotic lesbian” repeatedly appears as the screen onto which the violence and madness of twentieth-century life are projected.
