Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Welcome to Nvengaria, a land where magic happens, shape-shifters are real, and fairy tales come true. England 1819 Wallflower Penelope Trask believes nothing will ever happen in her village of Little Marching, Oxfordshire. Handsome princes only sweep in and carry off innocent maidens in the fairy tales she collects, never in real life. Prince Damien of Nvengaria is tired of living inside a fairy tale. His entire life has been ruled by prophecy, magic, and avoiding being assassinated by his mad father and the head of the Council of Dukes. When his father dies, he inherits a kingdom divided, his opposition led by Grand Duke Alexander, who will do anything to keep the monster's son from ruling Nvengaria. To make good his claim to the throne, Damien must fulfill a prophecy that reunites the lines of the original two princes of Nvengaria, best friends who'd carved a kingdom out of wild lands near the Transylvanian mountains. Damien's task—to bring back the Princess of Nvengaria, her line lost centuries ago. The price of disappointing the people, Alexander promises, will be Damien's execution. Damien tracks down the long-lost princess to the village of Little Marching in England, where nothing remotely interesting ever happens. He will have to convince the lovely Penelope that he is no charlatan, and that Damien's life and his kingdom depends on her facing danger with him. Along the way, the prophecy says, they will fall in love. And the prophecy is never wrong ... Note that the Nvengaria series is a paranormal historical, the books loosely based on well-known fairy tales: Penelope and Prince Charming—Cinderella The Mad, Bad Duke—Beauty and the Beast Highlander Ever After—Snow White and the Seven … Highlanders The Longest Night—Little Red Riding Hood (and the Big, Bad Wolf)

Download or read book Patriot Hearts written by John Furlong and published by Douglas & McIntyre. This book was released on 2011 with total page 370 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A riveting behind-the-scenes account of the transformative 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games--an extraordinary story of visionary leadership, love of country and the ability to dream boldly. When John Furlong emigrated from Ireland in 1974, the customs officer greeted him with "Welcome to Canada. Make us better"--an imperative that has defined Furlong's life ever since. A passionate, accomplished athlete with a track record of community service, Furlong was a volunteer for Vancouver's Olympic bid movement when it began in 1996 and then spent the next 14 years living and breathing the Olympics. Furlong and his organizing team, including 25,000 volunteers and many partners, orchestrated a remarkable Winter Games. Patriot Hearts is the story of how they did it. Working with Globe and Mail columnist Gary Mason, Furlong recounts the leadup to the Games and describes how he handled seemingly insurmountable setbacks--such as the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili, a global recession and the washedout snow at Cypress Bowl--to achieve a runaway success and, ultimately, a pivotal moment of nationhood. Patriot Hearts will be published on February 12, 2011, a year after Canada welcomed the world at the opening ceremony. Furlong will donate part of his book royalties to the Own the Podium program.

We are in Derry (Londonderry), Northern Ireland. It’s the summer of 1994; three young painters decide to commemorate, with a beautiful mural, the anniversary of the famous battle between Catholics and Protestants that took place in 1969 among the streets of the Bogside district. Aidan, who at school is the worst one when it comes to arts subjects, would like to somehow weasel his way into participating in the enterprise, but he’ll have to settle for a funny and poetic surrogate. In the meantime, he discovers that, in the small world that surrounds him, it is well worth the trouble to truly care for one another.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The world of New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is at your fingertips! This essential ebook bundle compiles three of her sensational trilogies: The Stark Trilogy, featuring Damien Stark, a powerful man who’s used to getting his way; the Most Wanted series, starring a trio of captivating alpha males; and the Stark International Trilogy, which introduces the notorious and alluring Jackson Steele. That’s nine novels full of dominant bad boys, decadent seduction, and steamy thrills—as only J. Kenner could imagine them. Also includes a preview of the first book in J. Kenner’s hotly anticipated new trilogy, Dirtiest Secret! The Stark Trilogy: RELEASE ME | CLAIM ME | COMPLETE ME He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past—and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him—and us. Forever. The Most Wanted Series: WANTED | HEATED | IGNITED Three men, three seductive novels: Evan Black embodies her every fantasy: brilliant, fierce, devastatingly handsome—and burdened with secrets. But there are some temptations she just can’t fight. Tyler Sharp always gets what he wants. She thought she was the one woman strong enough to resist him, but one touch and she was hooked, one night and she became his. Cole August promised to take her as far as she could go—and she wanted to go to the edge. Not many women can handle his past, but something about him beckons her to play the game of desire. The Stark International Trilogy: SAY MY NAME | ON MY KNEES | UNDER MY SKIN I never let anyone get too close—but he’s the only man who’s ever made me feel alive. Meeting Jackson Steele was a shock to my senses. Confident and commanding, he could take charge of any room . . . or any woman. And Jackson wanted me. The mere sight of him took my breath away, and his touch made me break all my rules. Our bond was immediate, our passion untamed. I wanted to surrender completely to his kiss, but I couldn’t risk his knowing the truth about my past. Yet Jackson carried secrets too, and in our desire we found our escape, pushing our boundaries as far as they could go. Learning to trust is never easy. In my mind, I knew I should run. But in my heart, I never felt a fire this strong—and it could either save me or scorch me forever. Praise for the novels of J. Kenner “Kenner may very well have cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.”—RT Book Reviews “[An] immensely satisfying series . . . The roller coaster events of Complete Me give this novel a page-turning quality.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers “A steamy story with a dark edge. Recommended for those seeking crime drama with spice.”—Library Journal, on Heated “Red-hot and angsty . . . Kenner keeps readers guessing.”—Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin This eBook bundle is intended for mature audiences.

Download or read book Memento Mori in Contemporary Art written by Taylor Worley and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-11-28 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores how four contemporary artists—Francis Bacon, Joseph Beuys, Robert Gober, and Damien Hirst—pursue the question of death through their fraught appropriations of Christian imagery. Each artist is shown to not only pose provocative theological questions, but also to question the abilities of theological speech to adequately address current attitudes to death. When set within a broader theological context around the thought of death, Bacon’s works invite fresh readings of the New Testament’s narration of the betrayal of Christ, and Beuys’ works can be appreciated for the ways they evoke Resurrection to envision possible futures for Germany in the aftermath of war. Gober’s immaculate sculptures and installations serve to create alternative religious environments, and these places are both evocative of his Roman Catholic upbringing and virtually haunted by the ghosts of his excommunication from that past. Lastly and perhaps most problematically, Hirst has built his brand as an artist from making jokes about death. By opening fresh arenas of dialogue and meaning-making in our society and culture today, the rich humanity of these artworks promises both renewed depths of meaning regarding our exit from this world as well as how we might live well within it for the time that we have. As such, it will be a vital resource for all scholars in Theology, the Visual Arts, Material Religion and Religious Studies.
