Be Careful What You Wish For Excerpt :

Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer's Be Careful What You Wish For opens with Harry Clifton and his wife Emma rushing to hospital to learn the fate of their son Sebastian, who has been involved in a fatal car accident. But who died, Sebastian or his best friend Bruno? When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to replace him. But Don Pedro Martinez intends to install his puppet, the egregious Major Alex Fisher, in order to destroy the Barrington family firm just as the company plans to build its new luxury liner, the MV Buckingham. Back in London, Harry and Emma's adopted daughter wins a scholarship to the Slade Academy of Art where she falls in love with a fellow student, Clive Bingham, who asks her to marry him. Both families are delighted until Priscilla Bingham, Jessica's future mother-in-law, has a visit from an old friend, Lady Virginia Fenwick, who drops her particular brand of poison into the wedding chalice. Then, without warning, Cedric Hardcastle, a bluff Yorkshireman who no one has come across before, takes his place on the board of Barringtons. This causes an upheaval that none of them could have anticipated, and will change the lives of every member of the Clifton and Barrington families. Hardcastle's first decision is who to support to become the next chairman of the board: Emma Clifton or Major Alex Fisher? And with that decision, the story takes yet another twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Be Careful What You Wish For showcases the master storyteller's talent as never before – when the Clifton and Barrington families march forward into the sixties, in this epic tale of love, revenge, ambition and betrayal.

Careful What You Wish For Excerpt :

From the New York Times bestselling author of There Was an Old Woman comes a novel about a professional organizer with a deadly problem she may not be able to clean up. Emily Harlow is a professional organizer who helps people declutter their lives; she’s married to man who can’t drive past a yard sale without stopping. He’s filled their basement, attic, and garage with his finds. Like other professionals who make a living decluttering peoples’ lives, Emily has devised a set of ironclad rules. When working with couples, she makes clear that the client is only allowed to declutter his or her own stuff. That stipulation has kept Emily’s own marriage together these past few years. She’d love nothing better than to toss out all her husband’s crap. He says he’s a collector. Emily knows better—he’s a hoarder. The larger his “collection” becomes, the deeper the distance grows between Emily and the man she married. Luckily, Emily’s got two new clients to distract herself: an elderly widow whose husband left behind a storage unit she didn’t know existed, and a young wife whose husband won’t allow her stuff into their house. Emily’s initial meeting with the young wife takes a detour when, after too much wine, the women end up fantasizing about how much more pleasant life would be without their collecting spouses. But the next day Emily finds herself in a mess that might be too big for her to clean up. Careful what you wish for, the old adage says . . . now Emily might lose her freedom, her marriage . . . and possibly her life.

Jamilah is attracted to Darius; but Darius only has eyes for Sabrina, who is determined to keep him at arm's length until she has him right where she wants him. Then she meets someone even better -- or so she thinks. What she doesn't know is that beneath this new suitor's suave exterior is a man filled with pain, ready to lash out at those closest to him.

Rick Smith has a fantasy of seeing his wife with another man. Liz Smith dreams of being with a black man. They never speak of their desires for the first six years of their marriage, afraid of what the other might think. But their marriage has grown stale. Rick thinks he is to blame - he can't satisfy his wife in bed. He finds relief in cuckold fantasies online while his wife sleeps. One fateful night, they confess their secret desires. Liz is content to let her fantasy remain just that, but Rick decides to find her the man of her dreams - and he has just the guy in mind: A handsome African-American named Darrell who used to work for his company. Liz allows herself to be talked into meeting him, outwardly cool but secretly excited. Sparks fly between Liz and Darrell. Rick just observes, the cuckold in him enjoying the show. Liz and Darrell make love - and everything changes. Liz finds the sex more powerful than anything else she has experienced in her life. Rick gets off on watching - and the jealousy and inadequacy he feels. But Darrell isn't a prop; he's not content to be at Rick's beck and call. He decides to take advantage of the power he holds over Liz - and she's helpless to stop him. Rick finds his cuckold hobby becomes a lifestyle, one that he's not sure he can escape from. Nor is he sure if he wants to. A rich tale of love, lust, chastity and acceptance.
