After thousands of years, they're back...Proud dragon warrior and healer Sana has a secret... one that may forever turn his friends against him, and one that he'll do anything to keep. He's worked too hard to keep who he truly is from the world, and he refuses to let the charade drop, even after waking up thousands of years in the future. But when Peter walks into his life and wakes his heartsong, he knows it's a secret he won't be able to hide much longer. With his muscular body and incredible strength, Sana is decidedly alpha in appearance, but Peter is no omega, and that means...Human lie detector and reformed dragon hunter Peter will stop at nothing to figure out why there's music in his heart whenever Sana is around... and why that music makes him feel like he's known Sana his whole life. Peter's been with other alphas, but the way Sana makes him feel is unlike anything he's experienced before. But as his attraction to Sana builds at breakneck speeds, so too does the danger they face. The Master Guardian is still on the loose, and the hunters are still under his control... and as a former hunter, Peter may be the key to taking them down.Can fated mates still so new in their relationship survive the perils of the Hunters' Guild and rise victorious? Buckle up and let our dragons take you on a ride you'll never forget... straight into the Alpine Compound, and the dangers therein. Alpha Deceived is the third book in the Waking the Dragons series and features men as hot as dragonfire, a life-changing secret, a prehistoric version of a certain laundry pod challenge, and a HEA just as legendary as the dragons in it. This 52k book contains mpreg and is 18+ only... did you really expect anything less from Susi Hawke and Piper Scott?

Two broken omegas and one hard-edged alpha
Author: Ivan Tyukin
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In the context of this book, adaptation is taken to mean a feature of a system aimed at achieving the best possible performance, when mathematical models of the environment and the system itself are not fully available. This has applications ranging from theories of visual perception and the processing of information, to the more technical problems of friction compensation and adaptive classification of signals in fixed-weight recurrent neural networks. Largely devoted to the problems of adaptive regulation, tracking and identification, this book presents a unifying system-theoretic view on the problem of adaptation in dynamical systems. Special attention is given to systems with nonlinearly parameterized models of uncertainty. Concepts, methods and algorithms given in the text can be successfully employed in wider areas of science and technology. The detailed examples and background information make this book suitable for a wide range of researchers and graduates in cybernetics, mathematical modelling and neuroscience.

The aim of this book is to present basic and advanced mathematical concepts using the graphical and traditional calculator, the TI 92 and the TI 89. These mathematical concepts are commonly taught at some stage of the first three years of college curricula; Analysis (approximations, convergence, differential equations, etc.) Linear Algebra (orthogonality, reduction, etc.). The idea behind this book is totally original and will teach the reader not only all the necessary theorems and examples, but illustrations of the calculator screens and the programs (short versions) will allow the reader to visualize these new concepts directly from the book, or on the calculator, leading to a better understanding through "seeing" and "touching" the mathematical lesson being taught.
An Essay on the Musical Emotions, Including the Complete Text of The Corded Shell
Author: Peter Kivy
Publisher: Temple University Press
The Corded Shell: Reflections on Musical Expression, published in 1980 and now out of print, was concerned with the question of how music comes to have the emotional properties that have been perceived in it and ascribed to it since antiquity. In that book, Peter Kivy argued that music possesses expressive properties, not as powers to arouse emotions in us but, rather, as perceived qualities of the music itself. In Sound Sentiment, he augments his previous work with four entirely new chapters. Incorporating the complete, corrected text of The Corded Shell, Kivy brings his earlier arguments up to date in light of recent work in the field, and discusses and answers various criticisms. Author note: Peter Kivy is Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University and Associate Editor of the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. He received the Deems Taylor Award of ASCAP for The Corded Shell.

Alpha wolf Acksel wakes up one morning in the bed of the one human who was kind to him in school. Now, ten years later, Brynn Mara is snuggled up at his side, smelling like passion and sweet dreams. Even though Acksel has declared that his pack members can mate with humans from now on, he knows that any woman he takes as his mate will have a target on her back. Especially if she's a fragile human. Deciding it's better to cut things off than string her along when there's no hope for a relationship, he leaves without a word and ignores her. But it doesn't matter if Acksel acknowledges her or not, because their night of passion has left a permanent reminder of what happens when one drunk wolf forgets protection. Angry, banished wolves from his pack discover Brynn's secret and decide to use her against Acksel. His worst fears have come true, and the only woman who ever touched his heart is now suffering because of his mistake. This book contains one ticked off, emotionally damaged alpha, the human woman who can tame him, and a sweet little surprise that no one expected.
