International Cinema and the Girl Excerpt :

From the precocious charms of Shirley Temple to the box-office behemoth Frozen and its two young female leads, Anna and Elsa, the girl has long been a figure of fascination for cinema. The symbol of (imagined) childhood innocence, the site of intrigue and nostalgia for adults, a metaphor for the precarious nature of subjectivity itself, the girl is caught between infancy and adulthood, between objectification and power. She speaks to many strands of interest for film studies: feminist questions of cinematic representation of female subjects; historical accounts of shifting images of girls and childhood in the cinema; and philosophical engagements with the possibilities for the subject in film. This collection considers the specificity of girls' experiences and their cinematic articulation through a multicultural feminist lens which cuts across the divides of popular/art-house, Western/non Western, and north/south. Drawing on examples from North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Europe, the contributors bring a new understanding of the global/local nature of girlhood and its relation to contemporary phenomena such as post-feminism, neoliberalism and queer subcultures. Containing work by established and emerging scholars, this volume explodes the narrow post-feminist canon and expands existing geographical, ethnic, and historical accounts of cinematic cultures and girlhood.

A woman hides from the spotlight—and her own broken heart—in a smart, sassy novel that’s a "heady mix of love, loss, law and celebs” (Allie Spencer). For Jane Porter, being a pop star’s girlfriend was a dream come true—until her big-time boyfriend started playing around and the paparazzi turned on her like a pack of hyenas. Now in a new city with a new look, Jane has retreated to work a quietly anonymous job in a patent law firm—at least until the furor dies down. Besides, some good old-fashioned hard work will help repair her shattered confidence. Then she meets patent lawyer Marshall Winfield—sweet, clever and dealing with the aftermath of his own romantic disaster—who might just be the cure for Jane’s broken heart. But with the press still hot on Jane’s heels and an office troublemaker hell-bent on making things difficult, do Jane and Marsh stand any chance of finding happiness together? "Fresh and fun, Rhoda Baxter's debut novel is an entertaining read about learning to trust—and love—again.”—Talli Roland, author of The Hating Game

Irresistible in a Kilt Excerpt :

The sweetest lies are the most seductive… Eleven years ago, I fell in love with Alex Thorne. He was beautiful, charming, sexy, and the best lover I'd ever had. He's also a bloody liar. Every word that comes out of his mouth is a half-truth, a con, or an evasion. Now I find out my dream job at a university in America is his way of pulling me back into his world. I will never, never fall under the spell of the British Bastard again. Catriona MacTaggart is the one that got away. The Scottish lass has fire in her soul and in her eyes, especially when she punches me. I can handle that. Maybe the truth and I do have a different sort of relationship, but I've never lied about my feelings for Cat. I'll do whatever it takes to get her back, even if it means deceiving her. Alex still knows exactly how to get under my skin, and despite all my intentions, I still can't resist that body and that smile. Maybe it's time I turn the tables and seduce the seducer, to finally solve the mystery he doesn't want me to unravel. Who is Alex Thorne?
