Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone


Original Title: Time Between Us

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet. Why would they? Anna's a sixteen-year-old in 1995, fiercely determined to secure a running scholarship so she can leave her quiet, dull town and finally travel the world. Bennett's a seventeen-year-old in 2012, living in San Francisco and trying to control his ability to travel through time - an incredible gift, but also an unpredictable curse, which constantly threatens to separate him from the people he loves. When a minor lapse in judgment puts his sister Brooke in danger, Bennett finds himself two thousand miles and seventeen years away - in Anna's world. As he searches for Brooke, Bennett is strangely and inescapably drawn to Anna, who feels sure she's seen him somewhere before. Through the gorgeous, mysterious newcomer, able to travel anywhere in a split second, Anna visits deserted tropical beaches and stunning mediterranean coastlines for the first time, and they can't help falling for one another. But they both know, deep down, that it can never last. For no matter how desperate Bennett is to stay with Anna, his uncontrollable condition will inevitably knock him right back to where he belongs - and Anna will be left to pick up the pieces.

Time And Time Again Time Between Us Time After Time Bind Up by Tamara Ireland Stone


Original Title: Time And Time Again Time Between Us Time After Time Bind Up

Anna and Bennett's thrilling, unforgettable love story sparkles in this collection of New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone's first two novels, Time Between Us and Time After Time. They weren't supposed to meet. She lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett has the unique ability to travel through time and space, which he normally uses to see epic concerts from his favorite vintage bands. After an unexpected complication forces him to remain in 1995 for longer than usual, he has to enroll at the local high school. And that's when he meets Anna. Anna spots Bennett at the track during a training run, and she can't get the mysterious new boy out of her head. Or the feeling that he seems to know her already. As the pair grows closer, Anna is shocked to learn Bennett's secret, but his ability means they can experience times and places she never dreamed of seeing. That is, until a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question, and Bennett begins to experience the terrifying side effects of his travels. Together, they face the impossible task of weaving together two futures that were never meant to intersect. Praise for Time Between Us "A beautifully written, unique love story." -Melissa Marr, New York Times best-selling author of The Wicked Lovely series "A warm, time-bending romance [that] will have readers rooting for the couple that keeps daring fate." -Publishers Weekly "The story will hold readers with its twists and turns, present and future; its love, sadness, and anger; and especially, its surprising secrets." -Booklist "A compelling story of love, fate, and consequences with plenty of sigh-worthy moments, this novel is the perfect choice for readers who want a romance that leaves them with something to think about when it's over." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Romantic and passionate, Stone's debut novel is swoon-worthy...will resonate with readers who enjoy their romance mixed with adventure." -School Library Journal "Time Between Us is the very best kind of love story --heart-pounding, intense, and unputdownable!" -Elizabeth Scott, author of Bloom and Perfect You

The Decision Between Us by John Paul Ricco


Original Title: The Decision Between Us

The Decision Between Us combines an inventive reading of Jean-Luc Nancy with queer theoretical concerns to argue that while scenes of intimacy are spaces of sharing, they are also spaces of separation. John Paul Ricco shows that this tension informs our efforts to coexist ethically and politically, an experience of sharing and separation that informs any decision. Using this incongruous relation of intimate separation, Ricco goes on to propose that “decision” is as much an aesthetic as it is an ethical construct, and one that is always defined in terms of our relations to loss, absence, departure, and death. Laying out this theory of “unbecoming community” in modern and contemporary art, literature, and philosophy, and calling our attention to such things as blank sheets of paper, images of unmade beds, and the spaces around bodies, The Decision Between Us opens in 1953, when Robert Rauschenberg famously erased a drawing by Willem de Kooning, and Roland Barthes published Writing Degree Zero, then moves to 1980 and the “neutral mourning” of Barthes’ Camera Lucida, and ends in the early 1990s with installations by Felix Gonzalez-Torres. Offering surprising new considerations of these and other seminal works of art and theory by Jean Genet, Marguerite Duras, and Catherine Breillat, The Decision Between Us is a highly original and unusually imaginative exploration of the spaces between us, arousing and evoking an infinite and profound sense of sharing in scenes of passionate, erotic pleasure as well as deep loss and mourning.

Out Of Place Out Of Time by Eric Knapp


Original Title: Out Of Place Out Of Time

Dr. Stowel made a big mistake: experimenting with unverified theories of time travel. The consequence was his sudden departure from Earth and his introduction to a sentient alien race. When he returns, many years later, he doesn't know how he got back, or why. Injured and suffering from severe memory loss, Stowel can only speculate that the aliens were responsible, that they are on Earth now and that they are up to no good. To the agents of the Temporal Exploration and Advancement project, Stowel's return could mean advancing their research by years. Yet with the risk of instigating an alien conflict as a result of their research, the project is at risk of being terminated instead! What is really gong on? Katherine Maya is certain there is more, locked inside the lost memories of Dr. Trenton Stowel. But how can she unlock the memories of a man who keeps disappearing into thin air?
