Tough Enough

This book focuses on six brilliant women who are often seen as particularly tough-minded: Simone Weil, Hannah Arendt, Mary McCarthy, Susan Sontag, Diane Arbus, and Joan Didion. Aligned with no single tradition, they escape straightforward categories. Yet their work evinces an affinity of style and philosophical viewpoint that derives from a shared attitude toward suffering. What Mary McCarthy called a “cold eye” was not merely a personal aversion to displays of emotion: it was an unsentimental mode of attention that dictated both ethical positions and aesthetic approaches. Tough Enough traces the careers of these women and their challenges to the pre-eminence of empathy as the ethical posture from which to examine pain. Their writing and art reveal an adamant belief that the hurts of the world must be treated concretely, directly, and realistically, without recourse to either melodrama or callousness. As Deborah Nelson shows, this stance offers an important counter-tradition to the familiar postwar poles of emotional expressivity on the one hand and cool irony on the other. Ultimately, in its insistence on facing reality without consolation or compensation, this austere “school of the unsentimental” offers new ways to approach suffering in both its spectacular forms and all of its ordinariness.

Tough Enough

Tough Enough

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy. He's a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart? There was a time when I had everything-a wonderful family, a bright future. Love. But all that was taken away in a single night, torn from me like flesh from bone. Since then, I've hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I'm comfortable in the shadows, where no one can see my scars. Kiefer Rogan literally took my breath away the moment I met him. MMA champion-turned-actor, notorious playboy, charming to a fault--he's everything I vowed to avoid. But he just wouldn't stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should've tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn't have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they're usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most. I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.

Strong Enough

Strong Enough

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the first in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy. Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her? How would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing. That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently. Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get.

Tough Enough The Cowboy The Cougar Odd Man Out

Tough Enough The Cowboy The Cougar Odd Man Out

The Cowboy by Jayne Ann Krentz Romance writer Margaret Lark knew all about tough cowboys in pin-striped suits: they were the heroes in her books. She wouldn't admit to fantasising about that type of man, though. But corporate executive Rafe Cassidy was quick to refresh her memory. Rafe had power, money and sex appeal. Losing a major deal had riled him and it was time for a showdown. Time to show her what stuff real cowboys were made of... The Cougar by Lindsay McKenna From the starry night Jim Cunningham saved Rachel's life on a snowy mountain, he felt bound by this compelling woman. She had a heart of gold, and a beauty to match her compassionate spirit. But she was a Donovan -- the daughter of his arch enemy. And though the rugged rescuer had faced many battles, loving Rachel would be his greatest challenge of all... Odd Man Out by B.J. Daniels Ever since J.D. Garrison had broken her heart when he'd skipped town, the tabloids had been Denver McCallahan's only link to the man who'd become country music's 'brightest star'. That is, until her uncle Max got murdered... Suddenly, J.D. was back in her life...sweeping her off her feet and warning her not to trust his best friend -- the one man who'd helped dry her tears. The two men Denver loved most were now accusing each other of murder. One had stood by her...the other had broken her heart. Would Denver choose the right man?
