Unlikely Roommates Lisa Mallory’s organized life has just become chaos. Her mother is on her honeymoon, her home and belongings were lost in a fire, and her cat is missing. First priority is to find her pet, second is to find a home, and her third? To stay as far away as possible from the smooth-talking, boisterous, ball-playing piece of man-candy who just became her stepbrother.
Ryan Jordan can’t believe his dad wants him to ask Lisa to move in with him until she finds another place. She’s too uptight, too nerdy, and too much of a stickler for propriety, even though he knows she has as much right to their parents’ house as he does. The fact that the pesky girl he remembered has blossomed into a beautiful woman doesn’t help. And the teensy bit of drunken groping they engaged in at their parents’ recent wedding still invades his sleep. Lisa and Ryan have known and annoyed each other for a decade. But all that is about to change.
: 'I have starved in some of the most beautiful places in the world ...' The Irish Times food writer Theodora FitzGibbon's bohemian appetite for love, pleasure, good food and adventure took her all over the globe until she died, in Dublin, in 1991. Her two-volume autobiography reveals a life fully lived: the names she used before settling on 'Theodora'; the cookery ons given to her by the former Queen Natalie of Serbia; the 1920s childhood spent on food-chomping travels with her rakish naval officer father in Europe, the Middle East and India. Paris in the 1930s was home to Theodora's struggles to maintain an independent life as a young actress, where she began an affair with photographer Peter Rose Pulham and kept company with Balthus, Cocteau, Dali and Picasso. She escaped wartime Paris to live in London during the Blitz and was friendly with Dylan and Caitlin Thomas, Augustus John, Francis Bacon, Shane Leslie and Soviet spy Donald Maclean.
She adopted Gwladys the penguin and Mouche the poodle.
She married Irish-American writer Constantine FitzGibbon in 1944 and divorced him fifteen famously stormy years later. In 1960 she married George Morrison, the film maker and archivist, and they lived together in Dalkey in the house with the 'sea at the bottom of the garden'. Be enthralled by the fascinating story behind the woman who broadened the culinary horizons of many people in Ireland and beyond. In this highly entertaining memoir, discover the sights, sounds and tastes of Theodora FitzGibbon - food writer, adventurer and thoroughly modern woman. 'Theodora FitzGibbon was the most extraordinary woman. If you read her autobiography you realise how many lives she led. And in fact how many people she was all rolled into one.' Maeve Binchy

The youngest of the family, Tina Andersson has been fighting for respect her entire life.
She's tired of being seen as “the baby,” everyone telling her what to do. Even her sexy boss, the town doctor who stirs her most submissive fantasies, treats her like a child. Flirting seems to have no impact at all on his stoic manner.
A pole dancing class is exactly what she needs to work off her sexual frustration, but there's no remedy for getting over the good doctor. Abandoned by his parents, Dr. Jake Simmons holds onto two things—his medical practice and his older cousin the local judge. But his obsession with his newest nurse makes it difficult to focus. Besides being his employee, she's too young, too innocent. He struggles to control his attraction to the sweet seductress. She wouldn't understand his need to dominate. But when his cousin hatches a plan that throws them together, he's forced to expose his true nature and risk losing her forever. With the help of Allura, the Interstellar Matchmaker, can Jake show Tina that the she freedom craves is the freedom to submit?
