Once, Miranda felt a little exposed… Miranda Hill can’t believe her eyes—her cocky ex-boyfriend, pro hockey player Dane Croft, is back in Bluebonnet, Texas, after all these years. He ditched her—and their little town—just as some rather shocking photos showed up on the Internet for everyone to see. Miranda wasn’t so lucky. Stuck in Bluebonnet and left to fend for herself, she’s never really shaken the scandal—or his betrayal. After nine long years, Dane’s back, and she has the chance to turn the tables on him… It’s time she gets even. Former NHL hotshot playboy Dane Croft has returned home to open a survival training school on an old ranch and reinvent himself. When his former high-school girlfriend enrolls in the program, he has no idea that Miranda’s plan is to get him in a compromising position—not the one he’s imagining, anyway. But soon Miranda realizes that to carry out her deviously sexy revenge, she’ll have to get up close and personal with Dane all over again. Being a good girl got her nowhere for nine years; now it’s time to be a little naughty. But falling in love with the man who broke her heart was never part of the plan…

A funny, honest and revealing account of a thirty-something woman who has it all - except a good man to spend the rest of her life with. I designed my first wedding when I was seven... Pirate Pete was just a prop to give the scene validity. I really could have done without him so long as I got to one day wear a dress like Barbie's. But something shifts when a girl turns thirty and suddenly Pirate Pete becomes very much a part of the picture... Jacinta Tynan appears to have it all: she's 32, gorgeous and has a fantastic job as a news presenter with Sky News Australia. There's just one thing missing: 'Pirate Pete'. So now she is 'auditioning husbands'. In Good Man Hunting, Jacinta chronicles her search for a man to live the rest of her life with, and her friends' search as well. Jacinta weaves a story that covers speed dating, 'premature declarators' (men who tell you they love you on the second date, then change their mind), getting over a breakup, chemistry, waxing (the Brazilian is in if you're on the market), married men, 'fishing off the company pier' (and the risks involved), older men, sex with an ex, the one-night stand, living alone and the well tested theory that 'Men are from Melbourne, Women are from Sydney' (which makes it hard if you're a Sydney girl). Her mother's advice to go out with any man, 'so long as he doesn't have two heads', doesn't help. As Jacinta says... Dating is short shifts, trial and error, dumping and getting dumped... But I must do it - the dating thing - if I want the Ultimate Outcome. We all must. And so we enter the quagmire of finding a man at an age where, apparently, the odds just got a whole lot less... The thing is, for the first time in our lives we actually need men. Beyond love and intimacy, they are a vital ingredient for the family unit we suddenly crave.

Narratives Of Community

Narratives of Community draws together essays that examine short story sequences by women through the lenses of Sandra Zagarell''s theoretical essay, Narrative of Community. Reading texts from countries around the world, the collection''s twenty-two contributors expand scholarship on the genre as they employ diverse theoretical models to consider how female identity is negotiated in community or the roles of women in domestic, social and literary community. Grouped into four sections based on these examinations, the essays demonstrate how Zagarell''s theory can provide a point of reference for multiple approaches to women''s writing as they read the semiotic systems of community. While narrative of community provides an organizing principle behind this collection, these essays offer critical approaches grounded in a wide variety of disciplines. Zagarell contributes the collection''s concluding essay, in which she provides a series of reflections on literary and cultural representations of community, on generic categorizations of community, and on regionalism and narrative of community as she returns to theoretical ground she first broke almost twenty years ago. Overall, these essays bring their contributors and readers into a community engaged with a narrative genre that inspires and affords a rich and growing tradition of scholarship. With Narratives of Community, editor Roxanne Harde offers a wealth of critical essays on a wide variety of women''s linked series of short stories, essays that can be seen overall to explore the genre as a kind of meeting house of fictional form and meaning for an inclusive sororal community. The book itself joins a growing critical community of monographs and essay collections that have been critically documenting the rise of the modern genre of the story cycle to a place second only to the novel. But more than simply joining this critical venture, Narratives of Community makes a major contribution to studies in the short story, feminist theory, women''s studies, and genre theory. Its introduction and essays should prove of enduring interest to scholars and critics in these fields, as well as continue highly useful in the undergraduate and graduate classrooms. - Gerald Lynch, Professor of English, University of Ottawa The introduction, by Prof. Harde, and the 20 essays in the book dialogue with Sandra Zagarell''s proposed paradigm narratives of community, which other scholars have called short story cycles or story sequences. Zagarell''s proposal organically blends a generic model with a thematic concern to explain how women writing community often turn to a particular narrative style that itself supports the literary creation of that community. Harde and the volume contributors appropriate this brilliant and engaging proposal in the context of other crucial discussions of the genre-notably Forest Ingram''s germinal study, J. Gerald Kennedy''s work, and those by Robert Luscher, Maggie Dunn and Anne Morris, James Nagel, Gerald Lynch and (I''m honored to note), my own study on Asian American short story cycles-to expand the range of the critical discussion on the form. The quality and diversity of the essays remind us that there is still much work that can be done in the area of genre studies. The volume emphasizes an important caveat to one vital misconception: that although writers like James Joyce or Sherwood Anderson are thought to be the precursors or, even, inventors of the form, women''s sequences, by Sara Orne Jewett and Elizabeth Gaskell, among others, actually predate the work of the male writers. This fact suggests that the development of the form as a genre that attends to specific perspectives or creative formulations of and by women needs to be considered in depth. The temporal scope of the volume is therefore a vital contribution to scholarship on the form, as is the diversity of the writers analyzed. Indeed, the examination of narratives by writers from different countries and that focus on characters from different time periods, racial, religious, or ethnic communities, and social class impels a multilayered reading of the texts that inevitably promotes a nuanced understanding of the project of each of the writers, a project that connects issues of individuality and community in varied and often surprising ways. The essays thus critically explore the notion of community in its myriad associations with the individual and as a crucial site not only for women''s action upon the world but also for her creative endeavors. The essays in the volume revisit familiar texts-Naylor''s The Women of Brewster Place, Cisneros''s The House on Mango Street, Kingston''s The Woman Warrior, Welty''s The Golden Apples, Munro''s The Lives of Girls and Women, among others-but offer new perspectives on the way form interacts with issues of women''s communities and women creating community in these works. Significantly, it also offers readings on texts that have not been analyzed in detail from this perspective-Gaskell''s Cranford or Woolf''s A Haunted House, for example-thus contributing to a continuing conversation about the ways women write. The juxtaposition of the familiar and the new expand the paradigms of current criticism not only on the story cycle but also on women''s writing in general. -Rocio Davis, Professor of Literature, University of Navarre Roxanne Harde''s forthcoming volume, Narratives of Community: Women''s Short Story Sequences, provides an abundant collection of varied responses to Sandra Zagarell''s longstanding call for further in-depth exploration of the genre that Zagarell christened the narrative of community in her 1988 essay linking non-novelistic narrative form with representations of female experience. As Harde observes, such narratives of community overlap significantly with the growing canon of unified but discontinuous collections of autonomous stories that critics have variously labeled as the short story cycle/ sequence/ composite . . . The essays in her collection examine a rich variety of such works by women, extending the scholarship in this area. . . Harde''s ample collection of essays presents a concerted and diverse exploration of the implications of the short story sequence form as a representation of women''s lives as part of and in conflict with membership in a community. . . . Overall, Harde''s volume is a welcome addition to current scholarship on the short story sequence, bringing in a variety of new voices and perspectives to the community of scholars who have engaged in the exploration of this paradoxical, evolving, and increasingly popular genre. - Dr. Luscher
