LORD WEYBOURNS WEIHNACHTSWUNDER Wie warm und unendlich geborgen sie sich in seinen starken Armen fühlt! Tess schmiegt sich an ihren muskulösen Retter und genießt seine Nähe: Alexander Tempest, Viscount Weybourn, trägt sie durch die vereisten Straßen zum Arzt. Ein Zusammenstoß mit ihm hat ihr einen verstauchten Knöchel beschert. Doch zum Weihnachtfest beschert der adelige Herzensbrecher der schönen Bürgerlichen noch etwas anderes: eine Anstellung in seinem eleganten Stadthaus als Haushälterin - und verboten sinnliche Küsse unterm Mistelzweig! Die berauschend süß, aber im höchsten Maße unstandesgemäß sind ... LIEBESWUNDER MIT DEM EARL Hat er ihre Schreie gehört? Ein breitschultriger Fremder in eleganter Kleidung betritt die Hütte, in der Kate Schutz gefunden hat. Fast ohnmächtig ist sie vor Schmerzen, denn während draußen die Christnacht anbricht, kommt ihr Kind zur Welt! Doch Grant Rivers, Earl of Allundale, wird zu ihrem rettenden Engel. Er ist nicht nur Mediziner, sondern macht der ledigen Mutter auch einen Antrag, kaum dass sie ihr Weihnachtsbaby glücklich in den Armen hält. Kate sagt Ja - und schwört sich, dass Grant niemals erfahren wird, warum und vor wem sie in die Dezembernacht geflohen ist ... STURM DER LIEBE IN DEVON Wie ein lebendig gewordener, gut gebauter Gott des Meeres entsteigt ein

Authors: Helen Deutsch
Categories: Biography & Autobiography
Type: BOOK - Published: 1996 - Publisher: Harvard University Press
By restoring the poet's image to view against the cultural background that branded it as monstrous, Deutsch recasts Pope's literary career, from his translations of Homer to his imitations of Horace, as itself a form of monstrous embodiment - a stamping of his own personal, disfigured image on fragments of the cultural past.

The daughters of a god find themselves having to meet an obligation they didn’t count on. They have been pledged to marry the Princes of Hell. Hell hath no fury like a goddess forced to marry a prince of the Underworld. The Kingdoms of Hell Saga is just starting. Imagine this, you’re the daughter of Alric, a god who quite unwisely lost a battle to the King of the Underworld. Now, the terms of agreement that your father has to yield to so that he isn’t banished forever is to give your hand in marriage to one of the sons of the Underworld. This is Gabriella’s fate. A bastard son of the King of the Underworld, Holden’s been made a Prince of the Underworld. He’s only interested in the hellhounds he’s charged with caring for. This prince has no interest in humans and less of an interest in having a wife. He wants to be left alone in his realm—the Kingdom of Disgrace. He wants to be alone. Too bad. His father has betrothed him to the daughter of Alric, the god who started the war between gods. As if that wasn’t bad enough, his hellhounds are dying. They are

Approaches to Teaching Coetzee’s Disgrace and Other Works

The novels of the South African writer J. M. Coetzee won him global recognition and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2003. His work offers substantial pedagogical richness and challenges. Coetzee treats such themes as race, aging, gender, animal rights, power, violence, colonial history and accountability, the silent or silenced other, sympathy, and forgiveness in an allusive and detached prose that avoids obvious answers or easy ethical reassurance. Part 1 of this volume, "Materials," identifies secondary materials, including multimedia and Internet resources, that will help instructors guide their students through the contextual and formal complexities of Coetzee's fiction. In part 2, "Approaches," essays discuss how to teach works that are sometimes suspicious of teachers and teaching. The essays aim to help instructors negotiate Coetzee's ironies and allegories in his treatment of human relationships in a changing South Africa and of the shifting connections between human beings and the biosphere.
The Disgrace Of MySpace

Authors: Richard David Kennedy
Categories: Performing Arts
Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-12-18 - Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
A slightly different look at (what once was) the world's largest social networking portal, filled with literally hundreds of facetious annotations that will leave you snickering, if not downright splitting a gut. Seen through Kennedy's penetrating (often unmerciful) eye, this is a book that will show you another reality– the virtual and the absurd, as offered by the actual members themselves. Newcomers as well as those who've been around MySpace for a while will also be exposed to some interesting facts they probably didn't know. If you’re were or still are a "Spacer," this book is a must for you. The reviews say it all. (Face) Bookers should really enjoy this. “To the Boss & "The Boys": Bravo!!! I downloaded the Disgrace today and I am already half way through it! Hysterical! Many laughs, smiles & giggles! I was literally laughing out loud on several parts...hilarious! I am going to buy the hardcover so I can read it whenever I need a smile - Fabulous & worth the wait – Big kiss.” ALI– USA July, 2008
