En ung kvinna lämnas att dö sedan hon utsatts för en gruppvåldtäkt av en hord barnsoldater. En museiintendent i New York ombeds att ta över en avliden kollegas arbete och dras alltmer in i hennes liv. Den tyske 1500-talskonstnären Lucas Cranach försöker rädda en samling konstskatter undan förstörelse vid Karl den femtes belägring av Wittenberg. I Niklas Rådströms nya bok vävs dessa tre till synes orelaterade historier samman till en gripande och utmanande berättelse. En Marialegend är en storartat djärv och rik roman om hur vi handskas med den ondska som världen rymmer och om vad det är vi håller för viktigt i våra liv.
Cat was perfectly happy as the pampered pet of her devoted mistress—even with the irritating Hound in residence—until Fairy Godmother changed her to a young woman to help servant girl, Cinderella, catch her duke. That success has now gifted the animals temporary humanity and released them into the world to fend for themselves. Cat hatches a scheme to find herself a rich husband—with help from the other animals and a secret stash of her owner's money. Hound's only plan is to ruin Cat's plan. As if learning the rules of polite society weren't difficult enough, London is awash with murders, courtesy of Shadow Man. He kills his victims to leech magic from them and transformed animals are chock full of magic. When circumstances throw Cat and Hound into the path of Shadow Man, they must find a way to escape his clutches and end the Season with their human forms intact. Through the candlelit ballrooms of society's upper echelons and across the dark and narrow streets of London, Shadow Man will become the predator and Cat and Hound, his prey.

Casey and her husband are right on the edge of the precipice.
The fantasy they’ve been sharing in bed at night, to fire their passion to new, forbidden heights, involves Casey sleeping with her dynamic, sexy, libertine of a boss. He wants her, and he’s made it clear that he does. And, deep down inside, spurred on by her husband’s constant, thrilled musings about how much he might revel in hearing about what she did in bed—with another man—Casey has to admit…she’s very tempted. Will their fantasies become reality? And, if they do, will their marriage endure, or will it shatter under the pressure of her cheating?
Bestselling author Anne Baker's compelling saga of family secrets, heartache and happy endings.
When Nancy Seymour's RAF pilot husband, Charles, is killed, her life falls apart.
Not only has she lost the man she loved, but she also loses her home and must find a way to support herself and their little girl, Caro, on her own. With the outbreak of World War Two, Nancy is grateful for the sanctuary offered by Charles's father in the form of a little cottage in the countryside. But his mother Henrietta has always disapproved of her son's wife and seems hell-bent on making her life a misery. Nancy has little idea, though, of the depths to which Henrietta is prepared to sink. With the danger of war ever-present, Nancy must find the strength to protect those she holds dear through years of hardship and peril. And, if she survives all this, perhaps she can still hope for a second chance at happiness...
