  • Genre : Fiction
  • From #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag comes a special edition featuring two of her romantic classics in one irresistible volume. This unforgettable pair of novels is sure to excite the lover and thrill the romantic in every reader. Tempestuous Alexandra Gianni had come to Briarwood with her infant daughter, Isabella, to start over. Determined to rebuild her life and the ramshackle farm she’d purchased with the last of her money, Alex had one goal: independence. She wasn’t looking for another relationship or the painful revelations she’d have to share about her past. Most of all, she wasn’t looking for a man like Christian Atherton, who could lead her dangerously astray. But the handsome, aristocratic English rider won’t accept that it’s too late for Alex or that she has to keep running…from her past and him. Restless Heart As a world-renowned globe-trotting photographer, Danielle Hamilton was at home with Tibetan nomads and Kenyan bushmen. But she didn’t think she’d survive six weeks in the “wilds” of New Orleans babysitting her sister’s five children. Then help arrives in the form of the most unlikely nanny Danielle could imagine. Tall, dark, and Cajun, Remy Doucet isn’t really a nanny and he isn’t accepting Danielle’s certainty that true love isn’t in the cards for her. He’s convinced that her self-control masks a deeper need to let go, and he’s determined to prove she could trust him with the memory of a tragedy that still haunts her dreams.

    Stage Blood
  • Author : Michael Blakemore
  • Publisher : Faber & Faber

  • ISBN : 9780571311231
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Performing Arts
  • In 1971, Michael Blakemore joined the National Theatre as Associate Director under Laurence Olivier. The National, still based at the Old Vic, was at a moment of transition awaiting the move to its vast new home on the South Bank. Relying on generous subsidy, it would need an extensive network of supporters in high places. Olivier, a scrupulous and brilliant autocrat from a previous generation, was not the man to deal with these political ramifications. His tenure began to unravel and, behind his back, Peter Hall was appointed to replace him in 1973. As in other aspects of British life, the ethos of public service, which Olivier espoused, was in retreat. Having staged eight productions for the National, Blakemore found himself increasingly uncomfortable under Hall's regime. Stage Blood is the candid and at times painfully funny story of the events that led to his dramatic exit in 1976. He recalls the theatrical triumphs and flops, his volatile relationship with Olivier including directing him in Long Day's Journey into Night, the extravagant dinners in Hall's Barbican flat with Harold Pinter, Jonathan Miller and the other associates, the opening of the new building, and Blakemore's brave and misrepresented decision to speak out. He would not return to the National for fifteen years.

Then, she gets her chance for revenge. When the storm of the decade snows in the mall workers and last-minute shopaholics for a long winter's night, Miranda sets out to get back at the catty clique who was behind her exile. But there's a complication. She somehow gets handcuffed to sullen loner Caleb.

With this twisted take on Shakespeare's The Tempest, authors Kim Askew and Amy Helmes prove again that, from Juliet's grief to Cordelia's rage, no one knew about teen angst better than the Bard. His wisdom holds up nearly half a millennium later.

  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • In a weak moment, I have written a book. -Margaret Mitchell This book is a multilayered creation that touches on a wide array of topics, many of them drawn from personal experiences. Indeed, you the lucky reader will be blessed with enough material for at least three books within one cover. Why would I want to write such a multi-themed book? It wasn't my original intention. Maybe I've learned an important lesson and won't do so next time. Like many older folks, I wanted to share what I have learned to be true and useful and couldn't seem to stay with a single topic. I've lived long enough to confirm an important realization: the gleanings from a well-lived life are at least as important as knowledge gained vicariously through reading and classroom attendance. But I think most people don't fully appreciate the value of their life lessons and end up taking most of them to the grave. I want to counter that pattern and use this book to share as many of my gleanings as I can. I also recognize several imminent dangers facing this nation and our planet and feel compelled to share these concerns. Just as important: I want my wife, children, and grandchildren to know more about who I was and who I've come to be. I hope they will have occasions to use some of my wisdom.

He hates his fins and wants nothing to do with his heritage. Lucas is an ambitious merman who has lived his whole life in Atlantis.

When he insults her, she curses him to find love only to lose it forever shortly after. As the love &‘em and leave &‘em type, Justin isn't overly concerned, at least until Lucas enters his life and he sees how the curse will end.

Her change in address was as unpredictable as the shift in weather, undergoing a life on the run in order to conceal her ability to govern thunder and lightning, wind and storms. Along with her father's recent desertion, she lost the answers to a long list of questions. For starters, why does she possess such powers? And from whom, if anyone, for all these years, have they been running? When a chance encounter places her across the path of highlander Galinn Gunn, she has the opportunity to discover the key to her past. But is the fairytale world she imagined, the life she actually desired? Or has her repressed life on the run merely been an unsettling glimpse of her future? In her quest to find the answers, she must distinguish the truths from the lies, but deciding whom she can trust, and who is out to deceive her is not a simple task, because in her real life fairy nightmare, nothing is black and white.

Instead, she devotes all her energies to her duties as headmistress of The Martin School for Young Ladies, the well-regarded finishing school founded by her deceased father.

In short, Anna finds Richard to be perfect-except for one small detail...Richard's love is the sea. Will Anna succeed in turning Richard's head from his beloved ship and his many adventures? Can she overcome her own misgivings concerning Richard's career, and her own naïveté in matters of the heart? And will Richard actually survive his journeys to come home safely to her?

A caregiver enters this world with no experience and thrust into the role by circumstances beyond his or her control. By sharing his experiences, the author communicates the importance of developing a caregiver's toolbox of coping skills. Caregivers who don't take advantage of resources are like soldiers who go into battle without any plan for offence or defense and without training, equipment, supplies, support, and reinforcements. There is little hope for sustainable victory. Likewise, it is vital for caregivers to educate themselves, develop a support team, and seek resources. Glen Hinshaw wrote Caregiver to share his personal journey spanning thirty-five years as a caregiver for his mother and wife to encourage veteran and new caregivers who may giggle at the humorous side of dementia and yet get a little misty-eyed remembering their own journey. Although the journey is often troublesome, caregiving is a precious gift of love that goes beyond self. A major emphasis is given to the importance of a person taking care of self, in order to be an effective caregiver. You too can find joy, peace, and comfort as a caregiver and that you not only survive this journey, but live life to the fullest.
