Kevin loves being mated to his immortal lion shifter. The man is alpha in all ways, but he is annoying in his insistence that Kevin stay perpetually in bed until the birth of their child. Especially considering that Keaton, the man who murdered Kevin in a past life, is still out there and finding new and inventive ways to stalk Kevin, including threatening to steal his and Alistair’s child to get back at Alistair. Alistair hates that he can't have peace with his mate, and he's terrified in the most un-alpha way that history will repeat itself and his lover will be taken from him again. When the best bargaining chip falls right into Alistair's hands, he will be forced to go against his morals to protect the man he loves more than his own life and their unborn child.
Silvery tones of a scented garden designed for moonlight can add new dimensions to summer evenings on your patio. And careful choices of herbs can yield shades of burnished bronzes and mauves in the garden throughout the rigors of winter. These are just two samples of the information contained in more than fifty plans for novice and professional gardener alike. Herbs are already well known for their abilities to flavor, scent, dye, and medicate; in addition, when properly integrated with their surroundings they can greatly enhance the landscape. The plans offered here represent a wide range of possibilities--historic and private, large and small, modest and elaborate--that are easily adapted to one's needs. Designs created by landscape architects and members of the Herb Society of America were redrafted especially for this book. Each plan offers dimensions, structural details for paths, walls, hedges, and decorating elements in addition to full commentary and a plant list. A selection of the Garden Book Club and the Architects and Planners Book Club.
When the House of Barnes is left in massive debt after the death of George Barnes, their oldest son and heir, Bucky, is forced to sacrifice his own hopes and dreams by entering an arranged married to Steve Rogers. Steve seems kind enough, has a prominent job in the government, and was even voted Society's Best Catch. But the House Rogers is significantly higher in status than Bucky's family, which means Bucky is marrying up in Society, and marrying up doesn't only come with rewards, it also comes with certain...
expectations and losses--some of which Bucky might be willing to do anything to avoid. And those opportunities might come his way. Un, of course, he actually starts falling in love with his new husband...
Red Thunder is a stand-alone, SAS style, action-packed adventure thriller designed to become Book One of a proposed trilogy. Warning: This Special Forces, SAS themed action and adventure thriller does contain scenes of violence, torture and some bad language from the outset and is designed for an adult audience. Introducing Jack Regan, the brand new character for the modern age. Jack is a six-foot-two, thirty-five-year-old, blond-haired, blue-eyed former member of the SAS and British Parachute Regiment, now recruited to the British Secret Intelligence Service, MI6 (SIS). Plot: Sent to North Korea to deliver a package to one of MI6's moles, what is supposed to be an easy job suddenly turns into a complete nightmare. Jack is bumped by the Secret Police, his contact ruthly murdered, and now faces imminent execution by the Korean authorities.
Only his handler back in London can save him. With London denying any knowledge of Jack Regan, their agent is abandoned and left to fend for himself in the political concentration camps, torture chambers and law gulags. With London believing their man is dead, Red Thunder can continue uninterrupted.
Little does London know, Jack Regan is still alive. Worse, Jack Regan has escaped.
After six years of being held in a North Korean rat-hole, Jack is heading home, and he wants some answers. While incarcerated at the hands of his cruel communist masters, Jack has discovered SIS's dirty secret. He was always meant to die! Answers alone though, are not enough for a man who has been tortured, betrayed and left to die by his own people. Jack also wants revenge. He wants those responsible to pay. SIS wants him dead before Red Thunder is compromised. Many lives hang in the balance and political alliances are at risk of collapse if Regan manages to get home. SIS will stop at nothing to eliminate the problem. Regan will stop at nothing to find out the truth. In the murky world of espionage, secrets are guarded jealously, and Red Thunder guarded more jealously than most.
