Two years ago, both of my parents died in a tragic car accident. I've spent that time just trying to keep my head above water. This move to Chicago, it's a whole new beginning for me. I've bought a fantastic condo with spectacular views of Lake Michigan, I'm starting a grad program at Northwestern, and I'll be able to see my godfather, Dominic, as often as I'd like. Since the death of my parents, he's swooped in and taken care of everything, including me. Without him, I would be lost. What I don't expect is my sexy new neighbor. From the first moment our eyes collide, I'm completely enthralled. I've never seen a man so stunningly handsome. No one has ever set my pulse racing the way he does. Especially when he's pinning me in place with those dark, espresso-colored eyes. I tell myself that it's nothing more than a harmless crush. After two long years of being steeped in grief, it feels amazing to have all this lust and longing rush through every cell of my body. Except... somehow it morphs into way more than that. Suddenly I'm having this intensely sexual relationship with a man I barely know. A man who refuses to reveal anything about himself, which I know is a red flag... Before I realize it, everything is spiraling out of control. There are two men who want more from me. One whom I already love and another who makes me feel more alive than I've ever felt in my life. But choices have to be made and there are consequences to every decision. What I don't realize until it's too late, is that all is not as it seems with either of them.

If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to come back to life? Investigative journalist Judy Bachrach has collected accounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memories of what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing. Clinical death—the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activity ceases—is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors are now beginning to concede. Hundreds of thousands of fascinating post-death experiences have been documented, and for many who have died and returned, life is forever changed. These days, an increasing number of scientific researchers are turning their studies to people who have experienced what the author calls death travels -- putting stock and credence in the sights, encounters, and exciting experiences reported by those who return from the dead. Through interviews with scores of these “death travelers,” and with physicians, nurses, and scientists unraveling the mysteries of the afterlife, Bachrach redefines the meaning of both life and death. Glimpsing Heaven reveals both the uncertainty and the surprising joys of life after death. From the Hardcover edition.

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out. From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. She was an addiction. At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise. Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman. But I couldn’t really have her. I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her. So I took a chance. And that was when our love story really began.

The momentum of the British industrial revolution arose mostly in regions poorly endowed by nature, badly located and considered backward and poor by contemporaries. Sidney Pollard examines the initially surprising contribution made by the population of these and other `marginal areas' (mountains, forests and marshes) to the economic development of Europe since the Middle Ages. He provides case studies of periods in which marginal areas took the lead in economic development, such as theDutch economy in its Golden Age, and in the British industrial revolution. The traditional perception of the populations inhabiting these regions was that they were poor, backward, and intellectually inferior; but Sidney Pollard shows how they also had certain peculiar qualities which predisposed them to initiate progress. Healthy living, freedom, a martial spirit, and the hardiness to survive in harsh conditions enabled them to contribute a unique pioneering ability to pivotal economic periods; illustrating some of the effects of geography upon the development of societies.
