When Reyna is selected as one of several honored women to be presented before Sheikh Asad in the annual offering to his harem, the spirited beauty flees. The Sheikh sends Salim, his oldest son and the commander of his army to bring Reyna back. But when Salim lays eyes on Reyna he knows he cannot obey his father's orders because he knows her spirit would be crushed if he took her back to his father. Reyna finds herself captured by Salim as his prisoner, his concubine.
She fights him at every turn, battling the simmering passion between them and the heat he ignites within her body with just one look, a single caress.
Er zijn auteurs die zichzelf bij ieder boek opnieuw uitvinden: of het nu gaat om het onderwerp, de stijl of de thematiek. Elvis Peeters is hier het ultieme voorbeeld van. Vorig jaar verraste hij met de uitdagende roman Jacht, waarin mensen en dieren gelijkwaardige personages zijn. En nu komt Peeters met een meesterlijke hertaling van 33 minneliederen van Henric van Veldeke. De naam Van Veldeke is bij het brede publiek vreemd genoeg tamelijk onbekend. Hij was de allereerste schrijver uit ons taalgebied die onder een auteursnaam een oeuvre naliet. Daarmee stond hij aan de wieg van onze literatuur. Deze minneliederen en natuurgedichten dateren uit de twaalfde eeuw. Elvis Peeters, naast romancier ook liedtekst- schrijver, heeft de Middelhoogduitse teksten op ingenieuze wijze weten om te zetten in sprankelend en muzikaal heden- daags Nederlands. Inhoudelijk doen de teksten denken aan hedendaagse artiesten als Nick Cave, Stromae, en Raymond van het Groenewoud. Voor het eerst worden de minnelie- deren van Van Veldeke nu voor de hedendaagse literatuur- liefhebber ontsloten. Onbegrijpelijk dat dit niet eerder gebeurde – maar een groot feest voor de lezer.

She never thought she’d see him again…this is a second chance sports romance and first book in the Wild Men Series. Sky Colton Wild isn’t just the famous football player everyone sees on their television screen.
I met Colton one summer vacation when we lined up on opposite sides of a flag football field. He was the cocky kid with clear blue eyes and a constant smirk. When he picked me up over his shoulder and ran with me the length of the field, I wanted to hate him.
But somehow we were the last two left around the campfire that night. We talked for hours under the stars. And when he kissed me, I didn’t want him to stop.
The next morning, I left. I thought I’d never see him again. And for ten years, I didn’t. Colton Sky Rosewood was the one that got away, the fiery redhead with a temper to match. It felt like way more than a teenage crush, but what did I know back then? Plus she gave me a fake phone number, not to mention a false last name. I tried everything to find her, but it was like she’d disappeared into the ethers. Ten years later, I’m out for my morning beach run and I crash into…Sky Rosewood, just before she gets knocked out by an errant wave. I try to be a gentleman and give her mouth to mouth, but she comes to and tells me off, her temper still intact. And so is my crush. Except now Sky’s a woman. A beautiful woman who agrees to give me the right number this time.
I’ve got my second chance with the woman I never forgot, and there’s no way I’m letting her get away again.
Turns out I shouldn’t have been so cocky…

This classic of fencing literature is not just a how-to manual designed to teach the routine movements of the sport. Written by a master swordsman who competed professionally and whose credentials include teaching at Rome's Italian Fencing Masters' School and Vienna's Austro-Hungarian Central Fencing School, as well as private instruction in Paris, the book divulges the reasons behind every aspect of positioning, invitation, engagement, thrusting, parrying, counterparrying, tempo, feints, and ripostes. Inherent in every word is the author's great love of the sport and his appreciation for the artistry of the foil. In the last section of this book, first published in English in 1933, Barbasetti presents a short history of fencing--from the heroic times of Homer to the Middle Ages--and a useful glossary of fencing terms in English, Italian, French, and German. Clear b&w line drawings illustrate correct stances and actions while several plates capture the drama of the sport as depicted by other artists.
