Some guys put on a suit and tie for work. I take them off. And then I sell three things: My time. My body.
And my cock.
I work for an exclusive escort agency in Los Angeles. The clients are wealthy women—ready, willing and able to pay $5,000 for safe, satisfying sex with no strings attached. To them, it’s a fantasy come true. To me, it’s just a job. And it’s a short-term strategy. I’ve given myself five years to work hard, fuck hard and invest well. Then I’ll have what I need to take care of my mother and sister for life. After that, I’m walking away from the grind to open a boxing club at the beach. My plan is going smoothly. Until I meet Isabella. And then—with a missing sister, a deranged billionaire and undeniable erotic heat—everything changes. Touch of Heat is a three-part erotic suspense serial.

When twelve-year-old Ava and her brother return to their birthplace of Wyse, they discovers that their once magical town has been losing its charms under the control of Lord Skinner. Uncovering a working magic mirror, Ava opens an unauthorized link to the twinned town of Unwyse, where she meets Howell, one of the unlucky Fair Folk who is being pursued by the terrifying Mr Bones. Discovering that they are the joint guardians of a grumpy old book that can tell the future, the new friends are unexpectedly launched headlong into an adventure to uncover the mysterious link between Mr Bones and Lord Skinner, and to find out what's happening to the waning magic that connects their two worlds.

A luta política assume nas sociedades contemporâneas, em condições de calendário eleitoral estável, essencialmente, a forma da luta entre os partidos. Quando uma revolução se coloca em movimento, no entanto, tudo pode ser subvertido, porque milhões de pessoas inativas ou até desinteressadas despertam para a luta social. Este livro apresenta-nos uma rigorosa investigação sobre a revolução portuguesa que ambiciona dar voz aos que não tiveram voz.
Nos livros de história eles são, não poucas vezes, invisíveis. Mas são os rostos comoventes destas grandes massas populares que oferecem sentido àquelas maravilhosas fotografias da revolução portuguesa. Anónimos, os seus retratos nas manifestações dizem-nos tudo o que precisamos de saber sobre a esperança e a frustração, a fúria e o medo, o entusiasmo e a ilusão, e tudo aquilo que oferece grandeza à vida e não cabe em palavras. Foram eles que fizeram a revolução. Nas páginas deste livro bate um coração que tem respeito e admiração por essa gente
The gambler’s high is like a rush; he feels invulnerable. That high lasts, though, only until the next big loss. Such is the story of Steve Budin, who created the first online sports betting company. Under the tutelage of his father, a legendary, old-school Miami bookmaker, and with the help of a cocaine-addicted polygamist, Budin revolutionized the shadowy business of spreads by taking them global.
But he also stuck to some tried and true methods, like plying clients with trips to Vegas, hookers, and hardcore drugs. In the end, Budin raked in hundreds of millions of dollars and stood on the verge of a deal worth billions more. He took bookmaking into an automated, virtual worldwide casino that anyone could access, anywhere and at any time. For anyone fascinated by the “wild West” that is internet gambling, here is a rare peek into that exciting, dangerous world.
