From the USA Today bestselling author of The Kiss Quotient comes a romantic novel about love that crosses international borders and all boundaries of the heart... Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he's defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride. As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can't turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn't go as planned. Esme's lessons in love seem to be working...but only on herself. She's hopelessly smitten with a man who's convinced he can never return her affection. With Esme's time in the United States dwindling, Khai is forced to understand he's been wrong all along. And there's more than one way to love.

William Goldman's modern fantasy classic is a simple, exceptional story about quests—for riches, revenge, power, and, of course, true love—that's thrilling and timeless. Anyone who lived through the 1980s may find it impossible—inconceivable, even—to equate The Princess Bride with anything other than the sweet, celluloid romance of Westley and Buttercup, but the film is only a fraction of the ingenious storytelling you'll find in these pages. Rich in character and satire, the novel is set in 1941 and framed cleverly as an “abridged” retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that's home to “Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions.”

We can live entirely different lives and pursue our own interests. I'm sure we can make this arranged marriage work. Of course, we do need to produce an heir, but I'm trying not to think about that.

It is a world of power and privilege, secrets and sacred duty. It is the world of ancient Rome. And it is the esteemed Vestal Virgins—priestesses of Vesta, goddess of the home and hearth—who protect the Eternal Flame that protects the Eternal City. Dedicated to a thirty-year vow of chaste service, Priestess Pomponia finds herself swept up in the intrigue, violence, wars, and bedroom politics of Rome’s elite—Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, Octavian and his maneuvering wife, Livia—all the while guarding the secret affection she has in her heart. But when a charge of incestum—a broken vow of chastity—is made against the Vestal order, the ultimate punishment looms: death by being buried alive in the “Evil Field.” In Brides of Rome, Book One in the Vesta Shadows series, Debra May Macleod skillfully re-creates the world of ancient Rome with all its brutality and brilliance, all its rich history and even richer legend. A true page-turner that is as smart as it is compelling, this must-read novel brings the Vestal order to life like never before.

But, if all communities aim at some good, the state or political community, which is the highest of all, and which embraces all the rest, aims at good in a greater degree than any other, and at the highest good.

Set in a small Wisconsin farming and manufacturing town still crumbling a decade after the depression of the 1890s, A Reliable Wife tells the story of Ralph Truitt, a wealthy businessman who advertises for “a reliable wife” in newspapers across America. The woman he chooses, Catherine Land, describes herself as “a simple, honest woman,” but in truth she is both complex and devious—not the missionary’s daughter she claims to be in her letter to Truitt but a courtesan of great beauty, kept by men and haunted by a terrible past. Catherine’s plan in accepting the marriage offer is simple: she will win this man’s devotion, and then, ever so slowly, she will poison him and leave Wisconsin a wealthy widow. What she has not counted on, though, is the passion she finds in this seemingly solid, forthright man—a man who also harbours secrets and whose own past is far from pure. Filled with remarkable characters and drenched with colour and atmosphere, A Reliable Wife is a story of love and madness, longing and murder, played out in a world that seems to have gone temporarily off its axis.

Unbeknownst to anyone outside of the Gakis family, Ione was adopted and has been fostered in an abusive and neglectful environment—a desperate prisoner on her tyrannical father's luxurious island. Marriage to Alexio can mean only one thing: escape.

How do people work together to advance human rights? Do people form groups to prevent human rights from being enforced? Why? In what ways do circumstances matter to the work of individuals collectively working to shape human rights practices? Human society is made of individuals within contexts—tectonic plates not of the earth’s crust but of groups and individuals who scrape and shift as we bump along, competing for scarce resources and getting along. These movements, large and small, are the products of actions individuals take in communities, within families and legal structures. These individuals are able to live longer, yet continue to remain vulnerable to dangers arising from the environment, substances, struggles for power, and a failure to understand that in most ways we are the same as our neighbors. Yet it is because we live together in layers of diverse communities that we want our ability to speak to be unhindered by others, use spirituality to help us understand ourselves and others, possess a space and objects that are ours alone, and join with groups that share our values and interests, including circumstances where we do not know who our fellow neighbor is. For this reason sociologists have identified the importance of movements and change in human societies. When we collaborate in groups, individuals can change the contours of their daily lives. Within this book you will find the building blocks for human rights in our communities. To understand why sometimes we enjoy human rights and other times we experience vulnerability and risk, sociologists seek to understand the individual within her context. Bringing together prominent sociologists to grapple with these questions, Movements for Human Rights: Locally and Globally, offers insights into the ways that people move for (and against) human rights.

Sam Edwards was a wealthy lonely man that lived all alone in his mansion. Sam was in his late forties and tired of not having a companion to share his wealth with. He decided he'd check out the bar scene and see if he could find a lady with the same interests as his. Sam hopped in his Rolls Royce not caring that it was a stormy night. Sam pulled into Mack's tavern, ready to find his dream lady. He grabbed his umbrella popped it open as he stepped out of his car and walked up to the door, shook the rain off of his umbrella underneath the canopy. He stepped inside the tavern that was filled with cigarette smoke, loud music, and laughter all around. Sam approached the bar, sat down, and the bartender said "What can I get for you?" Sam replied "I'll have a scotch whiskey on the rocks." The bartender replied "coming right up." As Sam was drinking his scotch whiskey, he noticed a very beautiful woman sitting alone in a corner table, crying. Sam asked the bartender for an extra glass of scotch whiskey. Sam brought his drinks over to where the woman was sitting, and said "Would it be alright if I sat beside you? I have no one to talk to." The woman replied "Sure, I too could use some company right now." The more Sam and the woman engaged in conversation, they both said "It's like I've known you all my life" and they both laughed and shared a kiss. Sam asked the woman if he could see her again and she said "Yes!" "Can I give you a ride home?" asked Sam. The woman just wept uncontrollably. Sam said "What's the matter?" She wiped the tears from her eyes and said "I don't have a place I call home." Sam said "Come into my arms." They embraced and before she could speak, Sam touched his fingers on her lips and said "If it's really that important to tell me, we can talk about it later." Sam and the woman got up from the table and left the tavern. Sam held his umbrella over her head keeping the rain away from her fragile body. He opened the passenger door so she could get in from the rain. They drove off through the stormy weather anticipating a night of passion. As they were driving Sam asked, "We've laughed and shared a kiss together, but you haven't told me your name?" "I'm sorry, my name is Melissa." "Well, Melissa, since you have no place to stay, it would be my pleasure if you could stay at my mansion, and if things get really serious between us maybe we could get married some day." "That sounds fine to me," replied Melissa. Melissa said "I'll stay, on one condition." "What would that be?" asked Sam. "Under no circumstances are you to remove my ribbon from my neck." Sam laughed and said "Are you serious?" "Yes, I'm dead serious. Now promise me you won't remove the ribbon around neck," said Melissa, in a serious voice. Sam replied, "Okay! Okay! I'll honor your wishes."
