Avevo bisogno di soldi, tanti soldi. In ballo c'era la vita di mio padre. Io però non avevo un centesimo, per arrivare a fine mese facevo la cameriera. Non avevo un amore e, diciamolo, all'amore, quello con la a maiuscola, non ci credevo neanche più tanto. Le mie storie fino ad allora erano state solo fonti di guai e delusioni. Mi hanno offerto un lavoro. Recitare il ruolo della fidanzata di uomini di successo. In pratica per un mese dovevo fingere di essere la loro compagna davanti agli occhi di tutti e in cambio ognuno di loro sarebbe stato disposto a pagarmi centomila dollari. 12 mesi, 12 città, 12 uomini ricchi, famosi, inarrivabili, 12 ambienti esclusivi, 12 guardaroba diversi. Più di un milione di dollari. Il sesso, chiariamoci, non faceva parte degli accordi. Quello dipendeva e dipende sempre solo da me. L'amore neanche quello faceva parte del piano. Ma intanto quello non dipende da nessuno... Gennaio, Los Angeles, uno sceneggiatore con un corpo sexy quanto la sua mente. Febbraio, Seattle, un artista francese in cerca della sua musa. Marzo, Chicago, un ex pugile imprenditore dal cuore spaventato. Tutti uomini da sogno. Che poi sono persone. Intriganti, fragili, che hanno paure, segreti e verità nascoste. Loro hanno scelto me. Per un mese sono entrati nella mia vita. Tutti mi hanno lasciato qualcosa. E uno mi sta chiedendo di cambiare le regole del gioco... ma l'amore, tutti lo sanno, di regole non ne ha. Ho intrapreso questo viaggio perché era l'unico modo per salvare la vita di mio padre. Mi sono fidata, ho buttato il cuore oltre l'ostacolo. Ed è iniziata la favola. Il viaggio ha salvato la mia, di vita.

"I was sixteen the first time my grandmother died . . ." Sarah Parsons has never seen Amber House, the grand Maryland estate that's been in her family for three centuries. She's never walked its hedge maze nor found its secret chambers; she's never glimpsed the shades that haunt it, nor hunted for lost diamonds in its walls. But all of that is about to change. After her grandmother passes away, Sarah and her friend Jackson decide to search for the diamonds--and the house comes alive. She discovers that she can see visions of the house's past, like the eighteenth-century sea captain who hid the jewels, or the glamorous great-grandmother driven mad by grief. She grows closer to both Jackson and a young man named Richard Hathaway, whose family histories are each deeply entwined with her own. But when the visions start to threaten the person she holds most dear, Sarah must do everything she can to get to the bottom of the house's secrets, and stop the course of history before it is cemented forever.

Born and raised in Corsica, Valerie Orsoni was overweight as a young adult. Along with her father, a chef, who also suffered from weight issues, she developed a programme of healthy living and eating where food itself - in the form of delicious, balanced recipes and detailed menu plans - played a central role in reducing body fat. LeBootcamp.com was a runaway global success and her book La Methode Orsoni, became a bestseller in France. With a highly motivational coaching style, LeBootCamp Diet speaks to women - and men - who are short on time, disillusioned by 'toxic' mono-diets, and unwilling to sign up to a life of tasteless meals and forbidden foods. Through three distinct phases (Detox, Attack and Maintenance), Valerie shows how to cleanse the body of toxins; attack stubborn body fat and cellulite; speed up the process of weight - loss when needed, and, finally, adapt permanently to a lifestyle where the weight stays off, the body is toned and energy soars.
