All characters are 18 or older. It's been three days since Adam arrived at the master's house, but when looking back on them he remembers only a whirlwind of new experiences that overwhelm any sense of time. In only that short period it has fulfilled all the lofty hopes that brought him here, but it has awakened new deeper, secret hopes as well. In quiet moments, he even dares to think that it is special to the master, too, even as experienced and worldly as he is. As together they delve ever deeper into the submissive dominant relationship and push at the boundaries of what Adam thought himself capable of and comfortable with, the promises that they would not become too attached begin to erode. In the heat of the moment – and the moments get very hot indeed – who can say what will be said and what plans may be changed to address these unexpected feelings? Excerpt: He had lowered himself so that he was sitting on my thighs, his skin against mine. His hand rested on my hip as he continued to hold my face towards his with his other hand. It was a symbolic gesture. I could never have looked away now. He was praising me for things I had never known about myself, but now that he had said them and said that he liked them, I couldn't bear the thought of being any other way. So I looked at him, submissive and patient for him to do what he clearly wanted to so badly. He produced a match from his pocket, struck it, and lit the candle before setting it aside on the floor. The clean scent of its smoke infused the air. "Do you trust me, Adam?" he asked. "Yes, Master." "Good," he said. "That's good. Because this isn't something I would do with just anyone." "I trust you, Master," I repeated. But even so, my chest felt tight. He laid a hand on my on the pale, sensitive skin of my stomach. He could feel my slight trembling. He could see the trepidation that, in spite of my need to please and be brave and be open-minded, I could not shut out entirely. "If it becomes too much for you, I want you to tell me," he said. "I want you to say so, alright? I want you to say 'Awry.'" "Awry," I repeated. "This is a safe room," he said, "where two people who trust each other can explore things that they would not do with other people." I watched him, still at a complete loss for what was about to happen. I pulled lightly at my wrists. The bondage I understood. The bondage I liked. But it also made what was coming all the more terrifying, whatever it was. But I was grateful that he was speaking this way with me. It reminded me why I was not, in my conscious mind, afraid.

Reader Advisory: This story is for mature audiences only and features intensely erotic situations involving multiple men, bdsm play, discipline, spanking, humiliation, submissiveness and dominance. All characters are 18 or older. Adam has been in Master's house for almost a week now: doing his best to live up to his expectations and being brought back into line when necessary. Things have started to get intense, and in his struggle to make sense of his growing feelings Adam has made a misstep that will earn him the sternest punishment of all, and once again in front of the whole household. But despite his strictness, Adam's master is not a vindictive man. When debts have been paid, what he really wants is some time alone with Adam to begin to understand what exactly he feels for his new eager and ever tempting submissive. Excerpt: I turned just enough to catch how Chris's face fell and reddened at the news. "I..." he began, but trailed off. "Up here." He drew a breath and stood. The legs of his chair made a scraping sound against the hardwood of the floor and he winced. "Here," Master repeated unsympathetically, pointing to a spot at the head of the table. Christopher moved into place on unsteady legs and then turned back to regard us - the audience of his humiliation and punishment - with that flushed face. He reddened very attractively, I noticed with slight envy. His cheeks took on a very soft glow and his eyes stayed very round as he watched Master. "Tell me," Master said to him as he stood at attention. "Tell what, sir?" he asked. "Why did you fail the inspection?" "I - I don't know, sir. I didn't know I had until you told me." "You know, Christopher, I don't really believe you." He looked at the ground, flustered and stammering. After a few seconds he fell silent and he closed his eyes. Master watched him coolly. Another moment ticked by and then he opened his eyes and raised them to meet Master's.

Author: Barbara Ellen Houston McCain
Publisher: WestBow Press
Lessons from Ladies of Faith is a book that demonstrates that the ladies we read about in the Scripture were real women, living actual lives. God gave us a record of their challenges, struggles, and victories as lessons that we can apply to our lives today. From the ladies chronicled in this guide, we can learn lessons about courage, commitment, submission to God, dedication to new challenges, and so much more. As we study Eve, Sarah, Mary, Dorcas, and the other women, we will learn that the paths they walked are not so different from the ones we tread today. Through their stories, we can gain insight into the victories of faith that God desires for the modern day Christian woman. Some lessons teach us of His majesty, others of His grace, while others encourage us to explore new levels of spiritual adventure. Whether you are an earnest Christian believer or someone who is curious about the Christian life, there is much to learn about the journey of faith on this path of exploration. Lessons from Ladies of Faith chronicles thirteen different areas of a life of faith illustrated by the lives of different women in the Bible. By application to our present day lives, hopefully, we will come to understand our own life journey through those of these women.

This book is composed of stories related to the many experiences the author and her husband have gone through as hobby farmers over the past several years. Lessons in Farm Life includes tales of cows, sheep, turkeys, chickens, dogs, and horses. About twenty years ago, we started out as novices, and through the years we have learned many lessons about living life on a farm. Author Nancy Graham’s original purpose in writing this book was to have something tangible—with life experiences and spiritual lessons—in order to pass down to her family. As she got further on in the writing process and began relating the many spiritual applications that could be taken from these stories, she realized the book could be a great encouragement to many Christians. This is especially true considering the traumatic and heart-wrenching events that took place within the family before the writing of this book was complete.

I want to belong, but I do not know how." There was a time when being a part of a church was not a decision you made but a reality you inhabited. But today belonging to the church has become a lost art, especially for millennials whose church experience is often summed up in one word: none. Erin Lane s church experience might be better described in two words: "It s complicated." Having grown up in a church, she has an appreciation for liturgy and covenant community. Having graduated from divinity school and taken a job in spiritual formation, she appreciates the structured, shared pursuit of theological and spiritual integrity. Having married a pastor, she sort of had church coming. Yet she wasn t always sure how to belong. With earnest persistence, Erin practiced the hard (and often surprising) lessons of community. Her story is an invitation to reclaim God's promise of inclusion and live like we belong to one another.
On a Great Variety of Subjects; Combined with an Epitome of English Orthography and Pronunciation, and Intended as the Third Book in a Course of Reading for the Use of Schools
Author: Samuel Willard
Author: William Wesley Cook
Publisher: Cosimo, Inc.
Dr. William Wesley Cook's Practical Lessons in Hypnotism was originally published in 1901, but this scholarly study is as relevant as it ever was. In spite of the skeptics, hypnotism has long been a psychological science that has earned the respect of many in the medical profession (notably, Sigmund Freud) and hypnotherapy is widely used in many treatment programs. Here, Cook approaches the subject in a constructive way, covering the history and philosophy of the science, as well as practical techniques and considerations. Most compelling are the studies of hypnotism's many applications, such as in self-healing, anesthesia, behavioral therapy, and even persuasion in the field of business. Cook's work also includes intellectual discussions on tangential-and fascinating-subjects such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and magnetic healing. Comprehensive and erudite, it promises satisfaction for the curious as well as the studious.

State Universities and Progressivism in the New South, 1880-1920
Author: Michael Dennis
Publisher: University of Illinois Press
Lessons in Progress provides a detailed look at how progressivism transformed higher education in the New South. Orchestrated by an alliance of northern philanthropists and southern intellectuals, modernizing universities focused on practical, utilitarian education aimed at reinvigorating the South through technological advancement. They also offered an institutional vehicle by which a new, urban middle class could impose order on a society in flux. Michael Dennis charts the emergence of the modern southern university through the administrations of four university presidents: Edwin Alderman (Virginia), Samuel C. Mitchell (South Carolina), Walter Barnard Hill (Georgia), and Charles Dabney (Tennessee). He shows how these administrative leaders worked to professionalize the university and to knit together university and state agencies, promoting a social service role in which university personnel would serve as expert advisors on everything from public health to highway construction. Dennis also explains how the programs of educational progressives perpetuated traditional divisions of race, sex, and class. The Tuskegee/Hampton model favored industrial education for blacks whose labor would support the South's expanding urban industrial complex, while education for women was careful not to disturb conventional notions of a woman's place. White workers found themselves subject to an increasingly centralized system of education that challenged their traditional independence. State universities in the New South were not isolated enclaves of classical learning but rather were inextricably tied to social reform initiatives. Seeking a more practical and socially responsible form of education, university modernizers succeeded in establishing the framework of a more modern, bureaucratic state. Despite their accomplishments, however, they failed to generate the kind of economic progress they had envisioned for the South.
