"Vogue s Book of Houses, Gardens, People" (1968) was a landmark publication among decorating books, and it chronicles an important chapter in the history of "Vogue." "Vogue" s Horst P. Horst, a leading fashion photographer of his time, developed an intense interest in seeing the world s great homes and meeting their owners; beginning in the early 1960s, he journeyed in an elite world that would soon be lost. With accompanying lyrical essays about homes and their occupants by the famed writer Valentine Lawford (Horst s partner in work and life), the book is a virtual who s who of society, politics, and the arts in the mid-20th century. "Around That Time" showcases much of the material featured in the original book, plus never-before-seen photographs from those homes as well as images from additional homes Horst shot well into the 1980s. This book introduces this work to a new generation of design, decorating, and visual art professionals, academics, and enthusiasts."

From bestselling author Stacey Lynn comes This Time Around, an emotional and sexy standalone contemporary romance! Five years ago I married the man of my dreams. He was supposed to be my last first kiss--my happily ever after. He promised to hand me the world, but in one night, all of those promises were shattered. Now, I was barely surviving the tragic loss of my husband, struggling daily to manage what was left of the life we'd promised to build together, when Cooper Hawke unexpectedly walked into my life. The Hollywood heartthrob had plenty secrets of his own and his eyes held the same darkness as mine. I couldn't stop myself from needing to know why. And as much as I tried to keep him out of my heart, he slipped past all my defenses. We both had pasts that destroyed our trust and had broken our hearts, but nothing will stop Cooper from trying to convince me we could have it all this time around.
