Sometimes it takes a reality television show to show you the love that's right in front of you.... To Louisa Tanner, Jack Doyle is perfect - heart surgeon, loving single father, and best friend a girl could have - so it's no surprise when he's tapped as the next Mister Perfect for the reality dating series Marrying Mister Perfect. But watching her secret crush romancing gorgeous women on national television? That flat out sucks - even if he will never see her as more than a pal. Jack is skeptical of reality shows as a path to love, but drastic measures are needed to shake him and Lou out of their rut. His friend deserves better than being his live-in nanny and will never chase her dreams if she is busy taking care of him and his kids, so he vows to take the show seriously and find a new wife. But the more stunning women he woos on command, the more he begins to realize the only woman he wants just might be the one he left back home. How can he seduce his best friend without jeopardizing their friendship? Especially when the cameras are always rolling. "A fresh, fun voice in contemporary romance, Lizzie Shane shines!"

It is 1999 and Russia is on the edge of total implosion. Social and moral order has collapsed and what small semblance of control there is, is being imposed by mafia-like criminal gangs. While public opinion in the West is largely indifferent, the political analysts are less sanguine - Russian meltdown will make the disintegration of the Balkans look like the collapse of a cup-cake. Out of the chaos, however, a single charismatic voice is starting to be heard - that of Igor Komarov, a visionary patriot who claims he can restores Russia’s greatness and bring prosperity to the masses. He even woos Western political leaders with a rather more realistic analysis of the way forward for Russia. Komarov is set to win the next election when a document is smuggled into the British Embassy in Moscow. It’s called The Black Manifesto and it appears to show Komarov’s secret agenda - his political blueprint is really Mein Kampf, the rebirth of Russia will be as a New Third Reich with Komarov as Fuhrer. But can the document be authenticated? And what can the Western Alliance’s most secret Trilateral Commission do about it if it is? They need to find another voice the masses will listen to and obey rather than Komarov - an icon they can cleave to and trust. Once, not that long ago, he was called the Tsar. And so develops a thrilling and increasingly frightening adventure - Jason Monk, ex-CIA, who used to run agents into the Soviet Union, is recruited and slips back into Russia, into the desperate Moscow world of poverty, luxury, gangsters and prostitutes and underneath it all, the titanic power struggle to ensure the outcome of the forthcoming elections. 1.

Die Briefe und Tagebücher dokumentieren Gustav Landauers Entwicklung zum Schriftsteller und Propagandisten des Anarchismus. Bekannte Adressaten seiner Briefe sind Fritz Mauthner, Paul Schlenther, Wilhelm Bölsche, Eugen Diederichs, Stefan Großmann und Joseph Bloch. Im Mittelpunkt stehen allerdings Briefe an Frauen, in die er sich verliebt hatte, darunter seine beiden Ehepartnerinnen, die Schneiderin Grete Leuschner und die Dichterin Hedwig Lachmann. Ihnen, aber auch seinen gleichaltrigen Verwandten und Freunden gegenüber offenbart Landauer, der im Oktober 1889 aus Baden in die Reichshauptstadt Berlin zog, mit bemerkenswerter Offenheit sein Fühlen und Denken. Leidenschaftlich kritisiert er die "Philister", die nicht nur in der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft, sondern auch in der sozialdemokratischen Partei den Ton angeben, und setzt der Enge der jüdisch-christlichen Moralvorstellungen das Ausleben der eigenen Individualität entgegen.Die umfangreiche Kommentierung der Briefe und Tagebücher erhellt die privaten Beziehungen und literarischen Beeinflussungen Gustav Landauers. Darüber hinaus entsteht ein Panorama der maßgeblich von der Nietzsche-Rezeption geprägten Kulturgeschichte um 1900.Christoph Knüppel annotates letters from Landauer in which he woos Hedwig Lachmann. These letters, addressed to his friends Ida Wolf and Clara Tannhauser and sent to the address of his first wife Grete Leuschner, show Landauer vacillated between amoral actions and the quest for the humanisation of the world beyond religious and teleological certainties. Landauer, speaker and editor of the weekly journal "Der Sozialist" and its literary supplement, shaped the anarchist workers' movement from 1892 onwards. In his view, literary writing and social commitment were always closely connected. The letters provide an authentic insight into the thoughts and perceptions of a political and cultural actor who maintained a "revolutionary passion" till the end of his life.
He would take her as his bride...but could she give her heart in return? When Egan MacBain takes beautiful Glenda MacKay as his bride, it appears that he´s done so for the noblest of reasons. In truth, he has vowed at last to claim the woman he´s always loved--yet once lost--to another man. But the rugged Highlander is determined to keep his passion hidden while he woos her with his gentle caress and wicked kisses. For he will not have an unwilling wife and will only show his tenderness once she is tamed. Although Glenda has agreed to the marriage, she´s only done so to gain the protection of Egan´s name. Yet this young widow of the once-powerful clan MacKay never expected that vows of love would leave her lips again, nor did she believe she´d ever hold any man so dear. But suddenly she finds herself succumbing to the strong, silent warrior who fills her with trepidations and a fevered, forbidden yearning to fulfill his wicked promise of the love--and the child--she aches for in the depths of the soul.
