The Kiss Quotient It's high time for Stella Lane to settle down and find a husband - or so her mother tells her. But that's not such an easy task when you're on the autistic spectrum. To overcome her lack of dating experience, Stella decides to hire a male escort to teach her how to be a good girlfriend. Meanwhile, Michael uses his good looks and charm to make extra cash on the side. He has a very firm no repeat customer policy, but he's tempted to bend that rule when Stella approaches him with an unconventional proposal. The more time they spend together, the harder Michael falls for this disarming woman with a beautiful mind, while Stella discovers that love defies logic. The Bride Test Khai Diep thinks he's defective. His family knows better - that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly refuses to consider a relationship, his mother heads to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride. Esme Tran has always felt out of place. So she can't turn down the opportunity to go to America and meet a potential husband, she can't turn it down. But seducing Khai doesn't g as planned. Esme's lessons in love seem to be working... but only on herself. She's hopelessly smitten with a man who's convinced he can never return her affection. As Esme's time in the United States dwindles, will Khai find the strength to let go, and let love in? The Heart Principle When violinist Anna Sun accidentally achieves career success with a viral YouTube video, she soon finds herself burned out. And when her longtime boyfriend announces he wants an open relationship before making a final commitment, a hurt and angry Anna decides to embark on a string of one-night stands. That's where tattooed, motorcycle-riding Quan Diep comes in. But being with Quan is more than sex - he accepts Anna on an unconditional level. Anna and Quan have to fight for their chance at love, but to do that, they also have to fight for themselves.

Book excerpt: From the author of The Bride Test comes a romance novel hailed as one of The Washington Post’s 50 Notable Works of Fiction in 2018 and one of Amazon’s Top 100 Books of 2018! “This is such a fun read and it's also quite original and sexy and sensitive.”—Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author “Hoang's writing bursts from the page.”—Buzzfeed A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there's not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick. Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases—a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old. It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice—with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan—from foreplay to more-than-missionary position... Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he's making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic...

Book excerpt: “An intoxicating blend of wholesome sweetness and tear-off-your-clothes steam…Ruby Barrett’s writing leaves me breathless.” —Rosie Danan, author of The Roommate "Sexy, smart, and fiercely feminist." —Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test A meet-cute gone wrong is the start of a surprising courtship in this fresh, modern take on the workplace romance from debut author Ruby Barrett Corrine Blunt knows what people think of her—she’s an icy, unapproachable executive. It’s the price she’s had to pay to get to the top. But there’s knowing you have a reputation in the office, and there’s hearing your new intern laugh when someone calls you “Blunt the C*nt” in the elevator on his first day. She’d hoped to finally find an ally in Wesley Chambers, but she’s not about to let him off the hook for joining the office boys’ club. Taking refuge in the professional boundaries between them, she relegates Wes to assistant work—which would do the trick, if he weren’t so eager to prove he’s a decent human being. Wes is sincerely apologetic, insisting it was a misunderstanding, and to her surprise, Corrine believes him. Being forced to work together was one thing, but long hours at the office with what turns out to be a kind, thoughtful man soon has their business relationship turning personal, and things get complicated—fast. Could this be something more serious than either of them dared to hope for? Or is their relationship just playing into the harmful power dynamics Corrine’s had to endure her entire career?

Download or read book A Supplement to the Oxford English Dictionary: H-N written by James Augustus Henry Murray and published by Oxford [Oxfordshire] : Clarendon Press. This book was released on 1972 with total page 1320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These volumes replace the 1933 Supplement to the OED.

Nearly all the material in the 1933 Supplement has been retained here, though in revised form (Preface).
