His proposition was tempting . . . “Let me help you, Alisa.” Zachary’s voice was a soft, caressing whisper that was oddly soothing and hypnotic. “You’ve taken the world on your shoulders by making Chris your sole responsibility. Haven’t you ever wanted someone to take care of you?” As much as she wanted to, Alisa wouldn’t admit any such feelings to him. She felt curiously vulnerable, unable to handle the uncharacteristic gentleness Zachary was displaying. And she was afraid she’d give in to him. She couldn’t let Zachary break down her defenses!

View: 6263Ruler of a kingdom lost to time, love was the last thing the centaur king expected... Uriel's journey to the isolated Silvermane kingdom to visit his brother and Tarsus, his brother's mate, turns deadly when he's ambushed by enemy minotaurs. Although Uriel is captured, he manages to escape with the help of a tanuso—a timid minotaur kept as a slave for the needs of cruel warrior minotaurs. He is soon rescued by his brother and Arhanyin, king of the Silvermane centaurs and Tarsus's father. Arhanyin reluctantly agrees to allow Uriel and the minotaur into the safety of his reclusive kingdom. But Uriel is a thrill seeker, an adventurous soul who revels in all things pleasurable. The lure of a king who has locked himself away from any love or pleasure is a temptation Uriel cannot resist. He's determined to warm the heart and the bed of this icy centaur king. But what begins as a simple challenge soon becomes something deeper and more perilous when Uriel finds himself wanting, needing, far more... King Arhanyin knows love is only part of his past, lost long ago when his mate died. To have the joy of finding his long-lost son, Tarsus, seemed all he could wish for now. Then Uriel, a brazen, charismatic centaur from the southern lands, blows into his life like a sudden storm. Arhanyin has lived a life of duty and responsibility, aging him before his time. He cannot imagine why this young centaur, so handsome and vital, would find him the least bit attractive. But Uriel does something to him, makes him feel as if all things are possible again. He's in danger of opening his heart to the bold southern centaur even as everything around Arhanyin is changing rapidly. A minotaur is living inside the Silvermane kingdom, Tarsus is finding his way as a true prince to his people, and Arhanyin just might find happiness again—if duty does not destroy it first...

Dismantling Chemical Weapons While Preserving the Environment
Author: David A. Koplow
Publisher: Psychology Press
View: 4077The Chemical Weapons Convention is a recently signed treaty that requires the dismantling and destruction of the massive stockpiles that many countries (most notably the United States and Russia) have built over the years. However, no simple or agreed-upon means exist to accomplish this admirable goal of the removal of chemical weapons. National security experts assert that the country, and the world as a whole, will be better off if chemical weapons are eliminated, while environmental experts assert that there is no way to accomplish this ambitious plan while conforming to existing national and community health and safety standards. Koplow examines the forced merger between the national security and the environmental policy makers, recognizing the necessity but warning of potential and actual conflicts in missions. Environmentalism and arms control are two crucial sectors of American and international public life that have long existed in segregated "parallel universes." Now these groups must

View: 5540From the heartlands of the 1880s Upper Midwest comes a morality tale of survival and destiny told in the convincing language of a patriarch's journal, evoking a real sense of the time and place. Gerhardt Praeger, a farmer of some education and plenty experience, understands the mixture of hard work, ingenuity, ethic, grace and steadiness of spirit needed to hold his settler family and neighboring community together while homesteading the hard territory of the Dakotas. He, along with his wife and seven sons, must constantly contend with natural disasters and manmade challenges to carve out their holdings in an unforgiving environment that has defeated so many of their neighbors, sending them home to their families back east. Praeger believes that God will provide sufficiently if not in abundance to those who can resist over-reaching. But a new neighbor, the bold Beidermann, who seems at times almost larger than life, stirs both his curiosity and envy, and tests Praeger's moral beliefs. Between his remarkable journal entries that observe the increasingly tense events between them, is also a narrative that moves the everyone toward calamity. What results is an almost biblical story of moral imperatives and self-revelation, of man striving to civilize his own impulses along with the wild land.

View: 6427High in the Himalayan valley of Zanskar in northwest India sits a village as isolated as the legendary Shangri-La. Long fed by runoff from glaciers and lofty snowfields, Kumik—a settlement of thirty nine mud brick homes—has survived and thrived in one of the world's most challenging settings for a thousand years. But now its people confront an existential threat: chronic, crippling drought, which leaves the village canal dry and threatens to end their ancient culture of farming and animal husbandry. Fire and Ice weaves together the story of Kumik's inspiring response to this calamity with the story of black carbon. Black carbon from inefficient fires - the particulate residue that makes soot dark - is the second largest contributor to global warming after carbon dioxide. It's also a key ingredient of the air pollution that public health experts regard as humanity's greatest environmental health risk worldwide: soot-laden smoke from household hearth fires and outdoor sources combine to kill over seven million people around the world every year. Jonathan Mingle describes the joys and struggles of daily life in the Zanskar Valley, where villagers are buffeted by powerful environmental and economic forces, while also tracing black carbon's dark fingerprints outward from Kumik and around the world. Mingle investigates its impacts on snow, ice, and water from Mt. Everest to California, and the silent health epidemic it fuels from New York to New Delhi. Combining cultural history, detailed reportage, climate and energy science and dramatic storytelling, Fire and Ice is a profound examination of the global challenges of averting climate chaos and lifting billions out of energy poverty and water scarcity. Can Kumik's people come together to reinvent fire, harness what remains of their life-sustaining ice, and reinvigorate their traditions of solidarity, in time to save themselves? Can the rest of us rise to the same challenge? Fire and Ice connects these questions with the work of enterprising scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and activists around the world, in a narrative that combines mythology, reason, humor, persistence, and hope in a race against a global clock.
