From his dirty-blond hair and breathtaking smile, to the abs from heaven and the irresistible V in his waistline, everything about Bodi Olympic-gold-medalist Banks screams hot piece of @$$. Yet there's more. Dark shadows lurk behind his soulful, serious eyes. I'm enamored. He's captured me. How can running an art foundation with Bodi Banks turns into a slow-burning, epic romance, even though he tries to push me away at every chance? How can I stay away from a broken, routine-driven man whose soul cries to be forgiven for a crime only he believes he committed? Or is that a lie?
He's hot. Like, stop breathing kind of hot with his killer body, vivid blue eyes, and constant five o'clock shadow. Did I mention his body? Watching Hollis Knightly, Olympic diving gold medalist, man-pony specialist-and cocky bastard-stand up on the diving platform in nothing but a small piece of Spandex? Yeah, I'm beguiled. And easily seduced. I want to keep things light but he won't leave me alone. And hell, if he's not wearing me thin. What is supposed to be a simple summer fling with a very hot man, has now morphed into a f*cked-up mess of feelings, attachment, and dare I say it...love. But I don't do relationships. And Hollis Knightly does.
This collection of essays makes an original contribution to medieval manuscript studies through deep engagement with the material side of book creation. The volume brings together major scholars of medieval manuscripts with leading contemporary book artists. The result is a ground-breaking collection which will be of interest both for its methodological implications and for the insights that the case studies provide. In a sequence of interconnected essays, experts in the field of literature, history, art, and manuscript studies enact readings of medieval manuscripts that incorporate extreme attention to the materiality of the object of their study. While the digital revolution has provided unparalleled visual access to medieval manuscripts, these essays are attentive to what has got left behind-not just the aura of the original, but also the engagement of the other senses, such as the feel of the binding, the heft of the volume, the smell of the parchment, or the sound of the pages. By bringing together experienced medievalist scholars with practicing book artists of today, this volume brings back an artisanal sense of the complete book to an understanding of medieval manuscripts.
This document is a methodology for trying to understand how I think and why I think as I do. My thinking process is premise based. I operate on the premise that evolutional genetic traits have more or less programmed the basic capabilities and limitations of the starting (initial) conditions of my particular “Human Nature.” From this point – considering the environmental conditions from conception through embryology – all internal ->external responses are learned – given full consideration to the capabilities and limitations mentioned above, of my personal “Human Nature.” I also operate; in the philosophical mode – which I try to maintain at all times, on the premise that I am finite. Being finite limits the data available for making absolute, truthful observations, and therefore decisions. This being the case, I cannot believe or disbelieve anything. Knowing that one cannot function in this limbo, I have formulated premises that I live by. They are somewhat found depending on new data or current situations. Because of this, I find that my premises are sometimes conflicting and contrary to one another. That is just the way it is. I live with it. Author's thought after the fact, shades of Aristotle, Platos, Socrates, Descartes, Spinoza, Hegel, and Peirce, but more primitive, juvenile and sophomoric. But isn't that when we start to realize who we are? A basic primer on how to think.
‘This dazzling series shows that if the barriers can be vaulted there is true beauty to be had from the lesser-walked streets of literature. These works are both nourishing and inspiring, and a gift to any reader.’ —Kerry Hudson The living have always told themselves stories about the dead, but few of us stop to wonder if the dead ever tell tales of the living. Through the prism of Haskell’s identity as a deaf poet come the themes of communication—or miscommunication—across worlds, languages and between the living and the dead. Mythical dogs, the dead who mourn the living, and the sorrow of those reincarnated, join hands around Jacqueline Haskell’s unique and very personal poetic Ouija board to resonate with the living, the dead and all those in-between. As forcible as they are humorous, these are poignant and thought-provoking poems.

Finding love in The Big Easy is a gamble … especially when he’s your new boss. Event planner Samantha Masson had sworn off alpha men after a nasty divorce. The last thing she was looking for was a man with an ego bigger than his bank account. Too bad that was exactly what she found when she spent a wild night in the arms of a masked stranger. Planning a Halloween masquerade gala for the infamous Victor Beaumont made a nice addition to her reputable portfolio. She just hadn’t planned on becoming a notch on his bedpost … or falling for him in the process. But there was more to the man behind the mask … Millionaire Victor Beaumont owned the largest rum distillery in New Orleans. He had power, wealth, and all that came with it, including the crushing weight of responsibility.

As a skilled actor, he had everyone fooled with his arrogance and charming wit. Until he met the infuriatingly talented and beautiful Samantha, who saw right through him. From rendezvous to romance, he couldn’t keep his hands off of her. To keep her, he would have to take his mask off once and for all … Previously titled Mr. Big Ego
