Description :


Miss Dorcas Delancey, vicar's daughter and advocate for the less fortunate, has been guarding her heart from fortune hunters and fashionable fribbles for years. She's completely unprepared for Alasdhair MacKay, former officer and all around grouch, to steal that heart. But when Alasdhair takes on responsibility for a motherless infant whom Dorcas's family won't acknowledge, she sees the honor lurking beneath his gruff mannerisms. Alasdhair MacKay did not storm hell with Wellington's army just so he could drink, swive, and flirt his way through life after Waterloo. He's serious, intelligent, and passionate about his causes--also passionate in his regard for Dorcas. He's the man of her dreams and a paragon in plaid, but looming scandal means Dorcas will have to choose between love and the honor Alasdhair so relentlessly values.

Description :


Miss Ann Pearson has spent years learning the difficult art of the professional cook, and jealously guarding her position in the kitchen of the fancy Coventry Club. When Colonel Sir Orion Goddard asks her to take on a young apprentice, Ann would rather refuse. But Orion is respectful, gruffly charming, and looking out for a girl whom others have neglected, and that is a combination Ann cannot resist. Lingering scandal has taught Orion to make his way along the fringes of polite society without allies or entanglements. Then he meets Ann, who is fierce, passionate, and warm-hearted, and also worth fighting for. If Orion and Ann are to forge a new love, they must first learn to trust each other, and find the courage to overcome old enemies who will do anything to keep the cook and colonel apart.

Two PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED Regency novellas. A is for Amorous (originally published in Love by the Letters) and Architect of My Dreams (originally published in No Dukes Allowed.) A is for Amorous Adalicia Beauvais has no use for children, and even less use for most men. Plato wasn’t a bad sort, and Euclid was bright enough, but the modern variety of male holds no appeal for her. To earn ownership of a lovely country estate with a delightfully well stocked library, Ada must raise funds for an orphanage full of noisy, malodorous urchins. As if that isn’t challenge enough, her only ally in this endeavor, is the headmaster, Lord John, who loves children, referees cricket matches, and plucks Ada’s very, very last nerve, even though she knows his devotion to the children is genuine, as is the orphanage’s need for funds. Opposites don’t always attract, but in this case, they must work together for thirty days, or neither Ada’s nor John’s dreams will ever come true. Architect of My Dreams Eugenia, Dowager Duchess of Tindale, travels to the Brighton shore for a respite from London’s din and crowding. She is both dismayed and curious to find that Adam Morecambe, the very architect whose building project has rendered her London street unbearably noisy, has also journeyed to Brighton. Adam is traveling on business–he’s always on business–though he’s also pleased to bump into the duchess who has the loveliest smile he’s ever seen. Genie has no intention of ever remarrying–once was bad enough–and Adam would never allow a romantic frolic to interfere with his busy schedule, but then he learns that Genie’s kisses are as sweet as her smiles, and all of his fixed notions about what the future might hold go flying out the nearest bedroom window.

Description :


As Mahmood approached them, Jimmy saw what was in Mahmood's good hand. He knew what it was. Mahmood used such devices frequently on his captives and had used such a device on Jimmy before. Jimmy screamed louder in rage and frustration. "I do not want that on my head." He tried to move away from Mahmood but made little progress because of the handcuffs. Mahmood reached over to try to put the device on. Jimmy bent his head away from Mahmood in order to avoid the device. Jimmy was unsuccessful and the device went on. When the sphere touched the top of his head, it flowed out in all directions, assuming a more flattened shape. It stuck to his head despite the fact that he used his free hand to try to pull it off. He started sobbing. All his movements gradually started getting slower and slower. He appeared to get weaker and weaker, which he was. The violent emotions shown on his face became more subdued. He began to get lethargic. He slowly sank to the floor.

Description :


“Mayaguez and the Murder Ship” trace the marine exploits of First Mate, later Captain, Casey Flynn. Aboard the container ship Mayaguez, he was First Mate during the surprise capture of that vessel and crew by Cambodian communists in 1975. During the four days between their capture and release to the U.S. Navy, Flynn acted as calm intermediary with his crew’s communist captors. The Americans were fearful of being summarily shot, ransomed or tried before a Cambodian court, then imprisoned. Once U.S. aircraft appeared overhead firing and bombing, their captors became hysterical and unpredictable, making Flynn’s protection of his crew even more difficult. Promoted to captain for his performance on the Mayaguez, Flynn’s trials had just begun. His first command, an old oil tanker, was beset with problems: a dispirited crew, several of whom mysteriously and regularly disappeared. The anxious, short-handed, double-dutied crew labeled their vessel the “Murder Ship.” To help him solve the mysterious disappearances or murders, an inexperienced Security Officer (who happened to be the transport lines owner’s beautiful daughter) was added to assist Flynn in this his new command. What could possible go wrong on Casey’s maiden voyage of the “Murder Ship”?

Description :


The essays collected here explore the power and sensuality that food engenders within literature. The book permits the reader to sample food as a rhetorical structure, one that allows the individual writers to articulate the abstract concepts in a medium that is readily understandable. The second part of Cooking by the Book turns to the more diverse food rhetorics of the marketplace. What, for example, is the fast food rhetoric? Why are there so many eating disorders in our society? Is it possible to teach philosophy through cookery? How long has vegetarianism been popular?
