Bradley Wiggins - My Time

On July 22, 2012, Bradley Wiggins made history as the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France.

Ten days later, at the London Olympic Games, he won the time trial to become his country’s most decorated Olympian. In an instant, “Wiggo”—now Sir Bradley Marc Wiggins—became a British hero. Two years previously, however, Wiggins had been staring into the abyss. His much-hyped attempt to conquer the 2010 Tour de France had ended in public humiliation. Poor results and indifferent form left him facing release from Team Sky. And then he was hit with the tragic news of the death of his grandfather, George, the man who had raised him as a young boy. At rock bottom, Wiggins had to reach deep inside and find the strength to fight his way back. Outspoken, honest, intelligent, and fearless, Wiggins has been hailed as the people’s champion. In My Time, he tells the story of the remarkable journey that led him from his lowest ebb to win the world’s toughest race. He opens up about the personal anguish that has driven him on and what it’s like behind the scenes at Team Sky: the brutal training regimes, the sacrifices, and his views on his teammates and rivals. He talks too about his anger at the specter of doping that pursues his sport, how he dealt with the rush of taking Olympic gold, and above all what it takes to be the greatest.

As the local constable suspects a footman at Foxwood Hall, Phoebe and Eva follow the clues to a different conclusion. But both young women will need to think outside the box to wrap up this case--before a cornered killer lashes out with ill will toward them. . .

This one begins with a warning from the author that reads "Nothing in this book is fictitious except the author," and what unfolds from here is a sort of comedy of ideas about a poet who traverses Russia from the Baltics to the capitol, to the shores of the Black Sea. Bitov wrote these three tales between 1971 and 1993 while the Soviet Union moved from peace to collapse, and they reflect this transformation. The first was published in '76, the second did not appear-- and the third could never have been written-- until after glasnost.

Aspen Richardson loves playing roller derby: the fun, the exciting games and her teammates – an amazing bunch of curvy, kickass girls. The only thing missing from her life is a man who will love her just the way she is. In the small town she calls home, bullies from the past remain, making her wonder if it's ever going to happen.

But, things are about to change in a major way, as the secret Aspen’s parents have been keeping from her comes out: as a small child, she was chased by two wolf pups, and one of them bit and marked her.

Now on the cusp of her first shift, Aspen is hunted down by cool, laid back Brad, and impetuous, hot-headed Chase, who both desperately hope they're the fated mate of this deliciously curvy girl. The trouble is, no one knows which of them bit her, least of all Aspen, who finds herself equally drawn to these two super sexy Alphas.

This is a standalone romance (no cliffhanger), with lots of laughs, scorching ménage sex scenes, and a HEA, of course!

The sons of Bastin’s powerful lords and privileged elite call the ancient institution of learning their home, and so does another fourteen-year-old boy, a boy nor lord or privileged, Pard Wenerly, seeros. Pard finds himself at Fairstone among his betters by the grace of luck or a curse, or at least that is what the boys think of Pard’s presence.

The results set off a cascade of events that spiral out of control as Pard’s enemies intend to capitalize on this revelation. Dangerous mercenaries appear at Fairstone and in the nearby resort town of Greysin, and a high stakes game ensues. Old secrets and lies long since buried within the ancient castle come to light and hit closer to home than Pard could ever imagine. Pard must unravel the mystery of himself and the growing conspiracy that surfaces as he tries to stay one step ahead of his enemies.

Whether walking out on the Montreal Expos to protest the release of a valued teammate or telling sportswriters eager for candid and offbeat comments more about the game than his bosses wanted anyone to know, pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee became celebrated as much for his rebellious personality as for his remarkable talent. Add to the mix his affinity for Eastern religions and controversial causes, and you can see why Lee infuriated the establishment while entertaining his legion of fans. In this wildly funny memoir that became a massive bestseller in the United States and Canada when it was first published, Lee recounts the colorful story of his life—from the drugged-out antics of his college days at USC (where he learned that “marijuana never hammered me like a good Camel”) to his post–World Series travels with a group of liberal long-distance runners through Red China (where he discovered that conservatives don’t like marathons because “it’s much easier to climb into a Rolls-Royce”). Lee also describes his minor league days, joining the Reserves during the Vietnam War, his time with the Red Sox, and the 1975 World Series. He spares no detail while recalling his infamous falling-out with Red Sox management that led to his trade to Montreal. Full of irreverent wit, and an inherent love of the game, The Wrong Stuff is a sports classic for a new generation.
