As he did in the acclaimed Finishing the Hat, Sondheim richly annotates his lyrics with personal and theatre history, discussions of his collaborations, and exacting, charming dissections of his work - both the successes and the failures. Picking up where he left off in Finishing the Hat, he gives us all the lyrics, along with cutouts and early drafts, to the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sunday in the Park with George, as well as Into the Woods, Assassins, and Passion. Here too is an in-depth look at Wise Guys, subsequently transformed into Bounce, and eventually into Road Show. And we are treated to chapters on his work for television and film and his "orphan songs," culled from parodies and special occasions over the years. Filled with behind-the-scenes photographs and illustrations from original manuscripts, and with the same elegant design as the earlier book, Look, I Made A Hat will be devoured by Sondheim's passionate fans today and for years to come.

Harlequin DARE brings you a collection of four new sexy contemporary romances for fun and fearless women. Available now! This box set includes: HOOKUP by Anne Marsh Max O’Reilly loves to watch Maple Washington pirouette in nothing but her ballet slippers. But when Maple’s ex posts her video to Max’s company’s hookup app he’s ready to destroy the man—as only a billionaire computer genius can. By playing Maple’s fake boyfriend...unless Max gets hooked forever… THE SEX CURE by Cara Lockwood Women stand in line to worship billionaire Wilder Lange. But sex columnist Harley Vega isn’t one of them—especially after he eliminates her job. Then the gorgeous businessman professes to need her confidential expertise. Soon Harley is burning the sheets with the sexiest man on earth as Wilder shows her unimaginable pleasure and makes her wonder about what happens beyond the bedroom… HOTTER ON ICE Blackmore, Inc. by Rebecca Hunter Alya Petrova welcomes the explosive chemistry between her and her enigmatic bodyguard Henning Fischer. Now that he’s accompanying her on a modelling job in Sweden, Alya can turn her illicit fantasies into sexy reality. But is their red-hot passion enough to overcome the scars of Henning’s past? SLOW HANDS by Faye Avalon All April Sinclair has done is tell dangerously gorgeous lawyer Logan Fitzpatrick that she’s being sued. By a celebrity. For a faulty vibrator. So why is her legal consultation turning wickedly suggestive? And now Logan’s sensual hands have started to unravel all April’s careful rules in business, pleasure...and her heart.
Ariane and Wally have been waiting for months for the last shard of Excalibur to reveal itself, but have so far heard nothing, and are desperate for a lead. To make matters worse, they now know that Ariane’s mother is alive, and Rex Major (Merlin in disguise) is searching for her. If Major finds her first, Ariane will have no choice but to give him what he wants to save her family – the first two shards. As they follow Major to the Caribbean, Ariane and Wally know they must take big risks – and draw on all their powers – to defeat Merlin, because they can’t afford to fail… Praise for Cave Beneath the Sea: “In Cave Beneath the Sea, Edward Willett has created as exciting a read as the earlier books in the series, continuing to develop his characters and their relationships while the action-filled plot carries the reader to intriguing national and international locales. Both Ariane and Wally feel the power of the sword, drawing them to its shards but also compelling their anger in those who have hurt them: parents, siblings, bullies, enemies. And while they struggle with those yearnings, they are finding their way to a hitherto-unknown girlfriend-boyfriend relationship that provides them the family they both crave. It’s hard for me to decide which is the stronger foundation for the story, the characters or the plot, as both are substantial and intricate. Regardless, Cave Beneath the Sea takes The Shards of Excalibur a fast-moving step closer to the Door into Faerie, the magical entity and Book 5 in the series.” – Helen Kubiw, CanLit for Little Canadians “The author has created interesting characters as the villain and the heroes all have occasional uncertainties about their actions…Cave Beneath the Sea will appeal to young readers in search of adventure as well as adults who enjoy another version of the timeless story of King Arthur…Recommended.” – Ronald Hore, CM Magazine
HOPE HAS A PRICE Nick Prasad has always enjoyed a quiet life in the shadow of his best friend, child prodigy and technological genius Joanna ‘Johnny’ Chambers. But all that is about to end. When Johnny invents a clean reactor that could eliminate fossil fuels and change the world, she awakens primal, evil Ancient Ones set on subjugating humanity. From the oldest library in the world to the ruins of Nineveh, hunted at every turn, they will need to trust each other completely to survive… “Gasp-out-loud astonishing” Charlie Jane Anders “A wonderful adventure” Chuck Wendig “A galloping global adventure” Brooke Bolander “A perfect balance of thriller, horror and humour” Adrian Tchaikovsky
HER MONTANA COWBOY Sometimes tragedy is a second chance in disguise... He was the one. The one she loved but couldn’t have without revealing the truth of her past. That’s why she left, why she’s stayed away, and why she has to return... Paralyzed by a riding accident, Seth Rowland doesn’t want physical therapist Grace Korbit to see him like this. Of all people, why her? But Grace is the best, and if he stands a chance at recovery, she’s the one to help him. Maybe if he cooperates he’ll be able to walk again, get her to reveal the truth of why she’d left—and convince her to stay. HER COWBOY SHERIFF Sheriff Jonas Taggert needs a helping hand with his daughter and Rissa Matthews and her Goth-dressing teen are definitely not it. He can’t afford to fall for a woman who doesn’t plan to stick around, much less one who can’t control her own kid. But the girls become friends, and it isn’t long before Jonas’ perspective takes a hard hit. Of all the people in the world for him and his daughter to love... why did it have to be them? PROTECTING THE SHERIFF’S DAUGHTER With all her heart Carly Taggert wants to be a mother, but without a husband there's only one way she knows to make it happen—become a foster parent. She’s signed up, willing, waiting and ready...oh so ready. Liam McKenna is assigned by Carly's sheriff father to keep her out of trouble while the sheriff is away. When he learns of her plan, Liam is sure she's headed for it—lock, stock, and barrel. Foster kids are messed up. Broken. Trouble. He ought to know since he was one. There's no talking sense into Carly, and soon Liam finds himself dragged into the chaos and falling for her despite knowing better. She’s a softie, in for a hard fall because those kids aren't hers to keep. But he’s sticking around, and maybe once she knows how painful it can be to let them go, she'll drop the nonsense of having kids and— keep him instead? COWBOY MEETS HIS MATCH How does a Burbank-loving, California-dreaming, city girl find herself on a Montana ranch living with a too-handsome stranger? A Will, that’s how. And now Gabriella Thompson is entwined in a million-dollar standoff with Brad McKenna. If she meets the terms of the Will, the land is hers to do with as she pleases and what she wants to do is sell to the highest bidder. But Brad, her host for the required three months, is determined to change her mind because as badly as she needs the money, he needs to control the land. Three months is enough time to get to know someone really well...or even fall in love. Question is: does her cowboy rancher really love her? Or is it just about winning the prize? MONTANA CHRISTMAS Widowed, a single mom, Christmas, and she’s just lost her job. Can it get worse? Apparently it can when Santa asks if he can help her and Jenna Darlington knows it’s a cruel joke. Because Santa—Chance McKenna--is a member of the Rock Gods, a group of rock climbers who live off of adrenaline and stupidity. Been there, done that. Buried her husband because of it. She has no respect for a man who doesn’t respect life—even if he is offering her a job. Chance knows exactly how Jenna feels about him and the rest of the Rock Gods. So why does he feel the way he does around her? They’re polar opposites when it comes to life views. But isn’t the saying that opposites attract? SECOND CHANCE HERO Skylar Mathews wants her son, Cody, to get better, and visiting Cody’s grandparents in Montana is supposed to accomplish that. But Marcus Whitefeather’s surprising presence on the ranch leaves her reeling. Marcus knew he’d regret sending Skylar and their unborn son away but at the time he’d had no choice. He’d lost everything, including his ability to walk, and no way was he ready to be a father, much less a husband. Ending their relationship was the hardest—and best—thing for all of them. But now they’re back and Marcus is a different man. When Cody doesn’t improve, Marcus suggests the unthinkable—that they reveal the truth not only to Cody, but their families. Make the wrong right and start again. Together. But after so many years of hiding their secret son how can Marcus prove he’s not only father material, but ready for more?
