Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. "A Clash of Kings" transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any you have ever experienced. A CLASH OF KINGS A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel...and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

From acclaimed historians Frances and Joseph Gies comes the reissue of their classic book on day-to-day life in medieval cities, which was a source for George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series. Evoking every aspect of city life in the Middle Ages, Life in a Medieval City depicts in detail what it was like to live in a prosperous city of Northwest Europe in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The year is 1250 CE and the city is Troyes, capital of the county of Champagne and site of two of the cycle Champagne Fairs—the “Hot Fair” in August and the “Cold Fair” in December. European civilization has emerged from the Dark Ages and is in the midst of a commercial revolution. Merchants and money men from all over Europe gather at Troyes to buy, sell, borrow, and lend, creating a bustling market center typical of the feudal era. As the Gieses take us through the day-to-day life of burghers, we learn the customs and habits of lords and serfs, how financial transactions were conducted, how medieval cities were governed, and what life was really like for a wide range of people. For serious students of the medieval era and anyone wishing to learn more about this fascinating period, Life in a Medieval City remains a timeless work of popular medieval scholarship.

Annotated reissue originally published 1995 A workaholic thirty-something couple and a baby… Josie Cooper’s got the perfect-for-her life. This former small-town-girl has worked long and hard to grow her computer start-up into a company to be reckoned with. She’s also found her soul-mate in brilliant, quirky, and extremely sexy architect Cooper McBride. And they’re happily—if busily—living out their HEA in Manhattan, the City that Never Sleeps. The ongoing journey of a happy marriage is one that needs constant work and compromise, but Josie and Cooper are experts at thinking creatively to make their lives and relationship vibrant and thriving. But when Josie’s brother and his wife are killed in a car accident in the mountains of Tennessee, their two small children—four year old Lucy and nine month old Ben—have nowhere to go, unless Josie and Cooper step up. “I saw a baby once,” Josie tells Coop, “but that’s the extent of my experience…” Outside-of-the-box thinking is this power-couple’s forte, but adding two understandably needy kids to the chaos of their lives is a daunting challenge—one that will test them in unexpected ways… With footnoted commentary about everything from pre-smartphone life in 1994/1995 (when Embraced by Love was written, published, and is still set) to thoughts on writing romance and how much Romancelandia—and her own writing—has changed in the past twenty-something years, Suzanne Brockmann presents a special annotated edition of one of her very earliest books. Set in 1995, Embraced by Love is a full length novel of 64K words (76K with annotations) or 240 pages. It was originally published in 1995.

From acclaimed historians Frances and Joseph Gies comes the reissue of this definitive classic on medieval castles, which was a source for George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series. “Castles are crumbly and romantic. They still hint at an age more colorful and gallant than our own, but are often debunked by boring people who like to run on about drafts and grumble that the latrines did not work. Joseph and Frances Gies offer a book that helps set the record straight—and keeps the romance too.”—Time A widely respected academic work and a source for George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, Joseph and Frances Gies’s bestselling Life in a Medieval Castle remains a timeless work of popular medieval scholarship. Focusing on Chepstow, an English castle that survived the turbulent Middle Ages with a relative lack of violence, the book offers an exquisite portrait of what day-to-day life was actually like during the era, and of the key role the castle played. The Gieses take us through the full cycle of a medieval year, dictated by the rhythms of the harvest. We learn what lords and serfs alike would have worn, eaten, and done for leisure, and of the outside threats the castle always hoped to keep at bay. For medieval buffs and anyone who wants to learn more about this fascinating era, Life in a Medieval Castle is as timely today as when it was first published.
