Galen Beckett weaves a dazzling spell of adventure and suspense in an evocative world of high magick and genteel society–a world where one young woman discovers that her modest life is far more extraordinary than she ever imagined. Of the three Lockwell sisters–romantic Lily, prophetic Rose, and studious, book-loving Ivy–it’s Ivy, the eldest, who’s held the family together after their father’s silent retreat to the library upstairs. Everyone blames Mr. Lockwell’s malady on his magickal studies, but Ivy still believes–both in magick and in its power to bring her father back. Yet it is not until Ivy takes a job with the reclusive Mr. Quent that she discovers the fate she shares with a secret society of highwaymen, revolutionaries, illusionists, and spies who populate the island nation of Altania. It’s a fate that will determine whether Altania faces a new dawn–or an everlasting night.
Sie weiß, wie sie von einem reichen Verehrer fünfzig Dollar für die Toilette kriegt, ohne sich klein zu machen. Sie weiß, wie man eine gute, laute Party feiert. Und sie weiß, was hilft, sobald sie das »rote Grausen« überfällt, diese unbestimmte Angst vor der Welt: ein Abstecher zu Tiffany's.
Steht sie erst vor der prächtigen Auslage des Juweliers an der Fifth Avenue, kann ihr nichts und niemand mehr etwas anhaben. Und es ist nicht immer leicht, Holly Goligthly zu sein, achtzehn Jahre alt, so charmant wie hübsch und hungrig auf alles, was noch kommen soll. »Eine liebenswerte Irre«, wie ihr Agent sagt, der sie einst auflas, als sie noch das dürre, naive Mädchen aus der Provinz namens Lullamae war, geflüchtet in die Metropole New York, das große, glitzernde Versprechen. Wer es dort schaffen will, auch das hat Holly verstanden, muss leichtfüßig durchs Leben tänzeln, darf sein Herz nicht an Dinge und Menschen hängen, seinem Kater keinen Namen geben und muss immer auf alles gefasst sein. Nur mit einem hat sie nicht gerechnet: dass sie sich ausgerechnet in einen unbekannten Schriftsteller verlieben würde, der ebenso mittellos und abhängig von fremder Gunst ist wie sie und auch noch ohne festen Platz in diesem verrückten Spiel.
Note: This is Part 1 of Girl Discovers Girls. Part 1 is titled "Dorm Shave Girls." Bisexual Charlotte is proud of her formerly sheltered roommate Brittany - in the space of one night she's come out of her shell and realized how much she enjoys touching and playing with other girls.
When Brittany's long distance boyfriend Jake arrives on campus a day early, Brittany and Charlotte have to rearrange their plans to find hidden places on campus to fool around. Evening the odds, Charlotte recruits her friend Tom to come along, and the four head to campus. When a game of truth or dare starts, Tom wants to see Brittany and Charlotte kiss. Unknown to the guys, the girls are no stranger to this, and are eager to please, with one catch: they want the guys to kiss too.
What follows is a campus orgy to shock and titillate you. EXCERPT: “Truth or Dare?” he asked Charlotte. She frowned, “Dare.” “Charlotte is bisexual, aren’t you?” he looked down at the blonde cradled in his arms. She nodded emphatically; pursuing her lips just a little to make the motion a bit cuter. “I want to see it,” Tom declared, he looked over at Brittany, “I’ll dare you to make out with her right here in front of us.” Charlotte shrugged, tugging herself away from Tom, she didn’t bother to rise to her feet, she crawled across the space that separated her from the gorgeous redhead she’d seduced yesterday, was it that long ago already? Their lips met, Brittany responded passionately, the alcohol causing her to lose any inhibitions she might have had about kissing in front of strangers, about kissing a girl, or even about doing so in front of her boyfriend. Their tongues twined together for a moment before Charlotte pulled away, she tossed her hair over her shoulder as she turned to stare at Tom. One delicate blonde eyebrow arched as he swallowed, crossing his legs to hide his sudden erection. “I’ll bet you won’t get it on,” he declared, turning to Jake, “Do you think they will?” Jake shook his head, “Nope,” his voice sounded somewhat hopeful that he was wrong. He turned; his blue eyes wide as he watched his girlfriend grope at the blonde’s breasts. He swallowed; he’d never realized she was so hot before. Or, he stared as she groped the blonde’s ample breasts again, bisexual. What hadn’t she told him? Jake swallowed, staring as the blonde responded to Tom, “We’ll get it on,” her voice was husky and incredibly sexy, Jake had never wanted to fuck someone else more in his life, “If you get it on.” “What??” Jake heard the words coming out of his mouth. He stared as she turned back to Brittany, kissing her passionately, their tongues curled together; hands caressed the heavy swell of breasts. “If we do, they will,” Tom whispered in his ear, “Come on…” Jake stared again, his eyes wide as the two girls pulled apart again, “Okay,” he heard himself say. His cock throbbed inside of his pants, barely contained by the fabric of the jeans. The prospect of watching them make out was driving him crazy, like a secret fantasy he’d never even dared to dream that was suddenly coming true right before his eyes. “You first,” Charlotte’s oh-so-sexy voice told him; she pursued her lips, blowing them a tiny kiss.
