Hailed byThe New York Times Book Reviewas "a gifted observer, able to discern the exact details that bring whole worlds into being" and "a storyteller who could keep a sultan on the edge of his throne for a thousand and one nights," A. S. Byatt writes some of the most engaging and skillful novels of our time.Timemagazine calls her "a novelist of dazzling inventiveness." Possession, for which Byatt won England's prestigious Booker Prize, was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first published in 1990. "On academic rivalry and obsession, Byatt is delicious. On the nature of possession—the lover by the beloved, the biographer by his subject—she is profound," saidThe Sunday Times(London). TheNew Yorkerdubbed it "more fun to read thanThe Name of the Rose. . . Its prankish verve [and] monstrous richness of detail [make for] a one-woman variety show of literary styles and types." The novel traces a pair of young academics—Roland Michell and Maud Bailey—as they uncover a clandestine love affair between two long-dead Victorian poets. Interwoven in a mesmerizing pastiche are love letters and fairytales, extracts from biographies and scholarly accounts, creating a sensuous and utterly delightful novel of ideas and passions. With an Introduction by the author that describes the novel's origins and its twenty-year gestation, this Modern Library edition is a handsome keepsake for fans ofPossession—new and old alike.

"Possession is an exhilarating novel of wit and romance, at once an intellectual mystery and a triumphant love story. It is the tale of a pair of young scholars researching the lives of two Victorian poets. As they uncover their letters, journals, and poems, and track their movements from London to Yorkshire - from spiritualist séances to the fairy-haunted far west of Brittany - what emerges is an extraordinary counterpoint of passions and ideas."--Back cover.

La destinée du jeune chercheur Roland Michell paraît étrangement liée à celle du poète victorien Randolph Henry Ash, dont il est un des plus grands spécialistes. Le jour où, d’un livre poussiéreux, il exhume deux lettres d’amour de l’illustre écrivain adressées à une inconnue, cette découverte bouleverse le cours de ses travaux... et de sa vie. Sur les traces d’Ash, le jeu de piste est ouvert : documents volés, amours clandestines, suicide romantique peuplent l’aventure qui dépasse bientôt le simple cadre d’une recherche universitaire. Couronné en 1990 par le prestigieux Booker Prize, adapté en 2002 au cinéma par Neil LaBute avec Gwyneth Paltrow et Aaron Eckhart, Possession est un récit haletant, subtil mélange d’érudition, de romance et de suspense, qui a été traduit dans de nombreux pays et a rencontré un succès mondial. Possession est un tour de force. The New York Times.

The Sons of Odin motorcycle club is back! Violetta Rand follows up Persuasion (“A seriously sexy thrill ride!”—Stacey Kennedy) with a sizzling short novel that takes passion to the brink of chaos . . . and beyond. Ambitious young attorney Tina Bethel doesn’t have time for commitment, but she wouldn’t pass up some hot, no-strings sex with the right guy—like Sons of Odin officer Vincent Ramos. Six feet, five inches of solid muscle and biker masculinity, he revs Tina up like no man ever has. The trouble is, every time they get physical, Tina’s cravings are never quenched—because Vincent always pumps the brakes before the point of no return. With her sexy body packaged in a short skirt, Tina’s enough to drive any man crazy. Vincent isn’t sure how he’s resisted her shameless come-ons. He just knows that if he gives in, he won’t be able to stop—and after two failed marriages, he can’t afford any more broken promises. But when a disgruntled client of Tina’s starts stalking her, Vincent has to make up his mind about his true feelings—fast. Because if he’s willing to put his body in the line of fire, he should be able to risk his heart in the name of love. Praise for Possession “Violetta Rand puts the romance into her 1%er! Vincent is enough to make any reader swoon. I loved the ride!”—Megan Crane, USA Today bestselling author of Make You Burn and Edge of Temptation “I thoroughly enjoyed Possession, a great read with a smoking-hot MC hero and a fun heroine.”—Carla Swafford, author of Hidden Heat “Sizzling chemistry and a heart-melting biker hero will leave you unable to put the book down. The gripping suspense might have something to do with that too.”—Stina Lindenblatt, author of This One Moment “There’s plenty of conflict [and] sexual tension in Rand’s second Sons of Odin MC romance. The byplay between Tina and Vincent is worth the read.”—RT Book Reviews “Violetta rocked another book in this series and she keeps adding more and more suspense. . . . She knows how to write an amazing end in every one of her books!”—Collector of Book Boyfriends & Girlfriends “This was a good book! Twist, turns and some copulating! Vincent is such a sweetheart and I love the lengths that he’ll go to protect Tina.”—Once Upon an Alpha Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
