The breathless finale to the New York Times bestselling Rebel of the Sands series will have you on the edge of your seat until the dust from the final battle clears! When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.

"The Fatal Hero explores the genesis of a dynamic new female hero in English literature. With imaginative and forceful arguments, it investigates the radical revision of the figure of Diana as an ideal model for the heroic woman. This ground-breaking analysis opens new vistas on the novels of Charlotte Bronte, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Joyce, Henry James, George Eliot, and Edith Wharton. This study transforms the way we see modern literature, its language and images, and its themes and heroic characters. The Fatal Hero demonstrates a hitherto unidentified but profound nexus between women's studies and modern literature."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Wedding bells are ringing—and tempers are flaring—as the Take the Fall series continues in this sweet, sexy novel from the bestselling author of After We Fall (“This beautiful story kept me transfixed until the very end.”—Krista Lakes). As a hardworking, hard-partying firefighter, Hayden Walker values his career and his freedom. But as the eldest son of a U.S. senator, he agreed long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and run for office, and that means settling down and marrying the picture-perfect wife. Hayden just isn’t ready for that sort of commitment . . . not with women like beautiful, curvy Saylor Dean—the naughty bridesmaid he recognizes the morning after his buddy’s wedding—tempting Hayden to stay single forever. The unwanted love child of a well-known politician, Saylor has always felt isolated and alone, her only solace the animal shelter she runs in Forrestville. Then she meets Hayden at her best friend’s wedding. During their impulsive and unforgettable night together, Saylor feels desired like never before—only to wake up and find that Hayden doesn’t remember his drunken proposal, or their hasty marriage, or her. But when the truth comes out, Saylor finds it’s a lot harder to fall out of love than in love. Praise for Hard to Fall “Marquita Valentine strikes gold with relatable and quirky characters in Hard to Fall. She will have you fanning yourself and then reaching for the tissues as you cry from laughter. Hard to Fall is a fun read, full of steam and drool-worthy moments. How can you not fall in love with an alpha male who fights fires? Yum!”—Meghan Quinn, author of Stroked “Five sweet and steamy stars! With quirky yet relatable characters, a sexy love story, and a compelling plot that keeps you entertained the entire way through, Marquita Valentine has done it again!”—Stacey Lynn, author of the Fireside series “Sweet and quirky heroine and a steamy hero tangled together in a complicated romance readers will root for!”—Caisey Quinn, author of the Neon Dreams series “With a hot fireman hero and a funny heroine I could be BFFs with, Hard to Fall kept me grinning and swooning from beginning to end!”—USA Today bestselling author Cindi Madsen “Hard to Fall pushed all my buttons in just the right way. Sweet, funny and best of all . . . so damn hot.”—New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett “Hard to Fall combines family, friendships, and politics into an endearing, fun, and hot package.”—Harlequin Junkie “I have loved every book in this series and Marquita Valentine has just added another winner! Five stars.”—Books Need TLC “This story was amazing. . . . The twists and turns the story takes will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens. Another great book by Marquita Valentine.”—FMR Book Grind “Yes, this is a story that hit its target, my heart! Five stars.”—The Book Fairy Reviews “Hard to Fall was my fave out of the whole series, but the bigger picture is that the Take the Fall series is a series not to be missed. I only hope that [Marquita Valentine] will add some more in it because I really need more from these amazing heroes.”—Collectors of Book Boyfriends & Girlfriends Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
