Money. Power. Sex.
The trifecta every man strives for and very few attain. I had these things and walked away from the endless stream of beautiful women, the billions of my family fortune, and the power that comes with my name. I was an arrogant bastard, an alpha asshole with nothing holding me back. I took what I wanted and didn’t apologize. I spoke with my fists, fighting when things were too much. It was an attractive life from the outside, a sexy arrangement that anyone would desire. It was all mine in a life long forgotten.
The past can’t stay buried forever, and hiding mine from Sidney is getting harder. I’m not the guy she thinks I am–I’m not just the poet or the witty teacher. I’m the opposite of who I once was, and got a second chance at life. But my dark past lingers, threatening to tear us apart.

Lexington Larrabee has never had to work a day in her life. After all, she’s the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work.

For most people, sharks and fear go hand in hand. Renowned photographer and conservationist Chris Fallows maintains a more nuanced relationship with the super predator. Gasp-inducing in their immediacy and surprise, Fallows’s brilliant photographs present these mighty creatures in a different light. Great White, the first publication to collect Fallows’s work reveals the sublime beauty of sharks and provides a rare glimpse into the largely unseen world of great whites, hammerheads, and other breeds. Fallows captures these fearsome creatures both above water, as they intersect with humanity, and below, in their mysterious underwater domain. A one-of-a-kind portrait of the shark and a superlative study of the nature photographer’s art, this collection is bound to turn heads and elicit a deep appreciation for the creatures that inhabit our oceans.
From wicked queens, beautiful princesses, elves, monsters, and goblins to giants, glass slippers, poisoned apples, magic keys, and mirrors, the characters and images of fairy tales have cast a spell over readers and audiences, both adults and children, for centuries. These fantastic stories have travelled across cultural borders, and been passed on from generation to generation, ever-changing, renewed with each re-telling. Few forms of literature have greater power to enchant us and rekindle our imagination than a fairy tale.
But what is a fairy tale? Where do they come from and what do they mean? What do they try and communicate to us about morality, sexuality, and society? The range of fairy tales stretches across great distances and time; their history is entangled with folklore and myth, and their inspiration draws on ideas about nature and the supernatural, imagination and fantasy, psychoanalysis, and feminism.
