It S Nice Outside

Meet John Nichols. He's 50-something years old, an ex-basketball player, ex-author, ex-philanderer, ex-husband, ex-high school English teacher. And he's father to three: two overachieving adult daughters, and 19 year-old Ethan, who will never be an adult. John's oldest daughter is getting married, and as the whole family travels from their homes in New York and the Chicago area, John is secretly preparing for a life-change that will alter his family's hearts forever. In this laugh-out-loud, heartbreaking, generous family novel, Jim Kokoris returns to the heartfelt writing of The Rich Part of Life. It's Nice Outside explores that universal tension between being a parent and keeping true to yourself.

Blue Skinned Gods

Blue Skinned Gods

From the award-winning author of Marriage of a Thousand Lies comes a brilliantly written, globe-spanning novel about identity, faith, family, and sexuality. In Tamil Nadu, India, a boy is born with blue skin. His father sets up an ashram, and the family makes a living off of the pilgrims who seek the child’s blessings and miracles, believing young Kalki to be the tenth human incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. In Kalki’s tenth year, he is confronted with three trials that will test his power and prove his divine status and, his father tells him, spread his fame worldwide. While he seems to pass them, Kalki begins to question his divinity. Over the next decade, his family unravels, and every relationship he relied on—father, mother, aunt, uncle, cousin—starts falling apart. Traveling from India to the underground rock scene of New York City, Blue-Skinned Gods explores ethnic, gender, and sexual identities, and spans continents and faiths, in an expansive and heartfelt look at the need for belief in our globally interconnected world.

Once Tasted

Once Tasted

Three siblings, an extraordinary family, a lasting heritage—in the irresistible Silver Creek Ranch trilogy, they’ll fight for the land and the people they love. Everything has come easily to Reid Knowles, the middle son of a California ranching family. But his charmed life is suddenly complicated when his good friend and neighbor asks him to help run the winery next door. His neighbor’s niece, Mia Bodell, is in charge—and she has made it clear that she’d rather be roped to a steer than to Reid Knowles. Never one to back down from a challenge, Reid vows to win her trust. Her life marked by loss, Mia knows that nothing comes easily—love included. In high school, her heart was crushed by Reid, and even though years have passed, the hurt lingers. Mia is achingly aware that the teen heartthrob has matured into a devastatingly handsome playboy, and the budding winemaker refuses to let down her guard. But one taste of unbridled passion changes things. From Reid’s first intoxicating kiss to his unexpectedly tender seduction, Mia is swept into a passionate affair that could tear her heart to pieces . . . or give her everything she has ever wanted.

The Politics Of Love

". . . the perfect balance between serious chemistry and warm, tender moments." ~Meline Naseau When Right Meets Left, Sparks Fly and Mistrust Abounds in THE POLITICS OF LOVE, a Romantic Comedy by Ines Saint -- Chicago, Present Day -- By most accounts, Jake Kelly is a cold, rich, white-guy. He's also Chicago's conservative mayoral candidate who genuinely loves his city and doesn’t understand why voters want to know the "real" Jake. Warm, sassy and opinionated, Kayla Diaz is an accomplished music teacher and violinist. She also loves Chicago, is trying to get back to her city and needs a job-- a "comfortable" marriage and family would be nice too. When a friend brings them together to come up with a music program for the city’s public school system as part of Jake’s plans for education reform, sparks ignite and combustion follows. But, after photos of the two of them dancing close at a festival mysteriously show up in local media, things get complicated. Voters love the idea of Jake and Kayla together, but they have it all wrong . . . or do they? Can Kayla trust that Jake wants her for the right reasons or is this just THE POLITICS OF LOVE?
