And of all London’s ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one—Caroline Richmond. She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love. But Bradford would bend to no woman—until a deadly intrigue drew them enticingly close. Now, united against a common enemy, they would discover the power of the magnificent attraction that brought them together...a desire born in danger, but destined to flame into love!
Summary Book Review The Rebellious No by Noëlle Vahanian:
Download or read book The Rebellious No written by Noëlle Vahanian and published by Fordham Univ Press. This book was released on 2014-03-03 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book aims to renew theological thinking by extending and radicalizing an iconoclastic and existentialist mode of thought. It proposes a theology whose point of departure assumes and accepts the critiques of religion launched by Nietzsche, Freud, Marx, and Feuerbach but nevertheless takes theological desire seriously as a rebellious force working within, but against, an anthropomorphic, phallogocentric worldview. As a theology of language, it does not claim any privileged access to some transcendent divine essence or ground of Being. On the contrary, for Noelle Vahanian theology is a strictly secular discourse, like any other discourse, but aware of its limitations and wary of great promises—its own included. Its faith is that this secular theological desire can be a force against the constitutive indifference of thought, and it is a meditative act of rebellion. Aphoristic instead of argumentative, this book offers an original and constructive engagement with such seminal issues as indifference, belief, madness, and love.

Summary Book Review Monstrous Imaginaries by Maaheen Ahmed:
Download or read book Monstrous Imaginaries written by Maaheen Ahmed and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2019-12-16 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Monsters seem inevitably linked to humans and not always as mere opposites. Maaheen Ahmed examines good monsters in comics to show how Romantic themes from the eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries persist in today’s popular culture. Comics monsters, questioning the distinction between human and monster, self and other, are valuable conduits of Romantic inclinations. Engaging with Romanticism and the many monsters created by Romantic writers and artists such as Mary Shelley, Victor Hugo, and Goya, Ahmed maps the heritage, functions, and effects of monsters in contemporary comics and graphic novels. She highlights the persistence of recurrent Romantic features through monstrous protagonists in English- and French-language comics and draws out their implications. Aspects covered include the dark Romantic predilection for ruins and the sordid, the solitary protagonist and his quest, nostalgia, the prominence of the spectacle as well as excessive emotions, and above all, the monster’s ambiguity and rebelliousness. Ahmed highlights each Romantic theme through close readings of well-known but often overlooked comics, including Enki Bilal's Monstre tetralogy, Jim O'Barr's The Crow, and Emil Ferris’s My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, as well as the iconic comics series Alan Moore's Swamp Thing and Mike Mignola's Hellboy. In blurring the otherness of the monster, these protagonists retain the exaggeration and uncontrollability of all monsters while incorporating Romantic characteristics.
Summary Book Review The New World Order of Spiritualism by Nelson Simone RN BSN:
Download or read book The New World Order of Spiritualism written by Nelson Simone RN BSN and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2021-01-25 with total page 212 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As a child, Nelson Simone built a steadfast relationship with Jesus Christ as his savior. He was active in the Christian church as a junior minister. At times, he took on a small speaking role, not unlike other children in the church. He’s been a Christian all his life. But at one point in his adult life, he was abruptly made aware that walking the straight and narrow path would present many spiritual challenges. In The New World Order of Spiritualism, he shares the story of traveling through one of the darkest valleys he’s ever faced. Simone chronicles how, at that challenging period, God lifted him out of the evil that surrounded him; the Lord delivered him at a time when he was unable to see the correct path in life. Growing up poor, in the mean streets of Los Angeles, Simone’s testimony is about achieving the impossible, even when everything works against you. He offers a set of tools and scriptural passages preparing you to face and defeat the schemes the wicked use to lure both unsaved and Christian people into a life of servitude to sin. The New World Order of Spiritualism details how scripture protects you from the way of evil men and women.
