DIE FLAMMEN DER LEIDENSCHAFT Mit scharfem Verstand, kompromisslos und erfolgreich führt Lance Brody sein Ölunternehmen. Doch als er aus Washington zurückkommt, geht in der Firma alles drunter und drüber. Nicht nur, dass in der Raffinerie ein Feuer ausgebrochen ist - seine verschwiegene Assistentin Kate schürt plötzlich heiße Flammen der Leidenschaft in ihm! Neue Frisur, Make-up und dieser aufregende kurze Rock, der ihre langen Beine betont ... Kate ist umwerfend attraktiv! Warum ist ihm das vorher nie aufgefallen? Und wieso musste er sich bloß vor ein paar Tagen mit der Tochter des Senators verloben? DEINE KÜSSE VERZAUBERN MICH! Diese Stadt ist zu klein! Seufzend klappt Summer den Ordner zu. Warum musste der neue Job sie ausgerechnet hierher verschlagen? Sieben Jahre lang hat sie versucht, Darius zu vergessen. Und nun läuft sie dem sexy Ex-Polizisten, der ihr einst das Leben rettete, immer wieder über den Weg. Vor allem muss sie ständig daran denken, wie ungestüm Darius sie damals geküsst und welch ungezügeltes Verlangen er in ihr geweckt hat - bevor er einfach so gegangen ist! Aber auch wenn sie sich unwiderstehlich zu ihm hingezogen fühlt, gibt Summer ihm keine zweite Chance. Oder? TAGE DER RACHE, NÄCHTE DER ZÄRTLICHKEIT "Cara." Kevin Novak zwingt sich zu lächeln. Von einem Tag auf den anderen hatte sie ihn vor vier Jahren verlassen. Den tiefen Schmerz spürt Kevin jetzt noch. Und trotzdem knistert es immer noch so heiß zwischen ihnen, dass er den Blick nicht von ihr lösen kann ... Cara will also, dass er die Scheidungspapiere unterzeichnet? Gut, das kann sie haben. Allerdings nur, wenn sie vorher eine Woche lang das Bett mit ihm teilt! Er will Cara verführen und dann eiskalt fallen lassen. Ein perfekter Racheplan - jedenfalls solange Kevin seine wahren Gefühle im Zaum halten kann! VIEL MEHR, ALS DU DENKST! Oh nein! Sein Bruder hat die Hochzeit abgesagt und Senatorentochter Lexi Cavanaugh sitzen gelassen! Mitch Brody ahnt, was das bedeutet: Der Senator ist wütend und muss besänftigt werden, bevor er noch Brody Oil and Gas zerstört. Mitch hat die rettende Idee: Er wird selbst in den sauren Apfel beißen und Lexi heiraten. Allerdings ist sie für ihn viel eher eine süße, verbotene Frucht, die er schon einmal gekostet hat. Und Mitch erliegt dem heißen Knistern - auch wenn Lexi damals nur mit ihm gespielt hat ... Oder empfindet die kühle Blondine doch mehr für ihn als bloßes Verlangen? HEISS VERFÜHRT - EISKALT BETROGEN? "Kann ich die Nacht bei dir verbringen?" Nach dem Brandanschlag ist Alicia auf der Ranch nicht mehr sicher. Zum Glück bietet Rick ihr seine Hilfe an und lädt Alicia in seine luxuriöse Hotelsuite ein - nur zu ihrem Schutz, wie er lachend betont. Doch an diesem Abend verliert Alicia sich im Zauber des Moments. Sie trinken Champagner, küssen einander ungestüm, lieben sich zärtlich ... Es ist wie ein sinnlicher Traum - bis Alicia erfährt, wer ihr Geliebter wirklich ist: Justin Dupree, ein berüchtigter Playboy und Feind ihres Bruders! Hat er sie aus purer Berechnung verführt? ATEMLOS VOR VERLANGEN "Das war ja klar." Rebecca Huntington hatte es ja gewusst. Es war nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis sie Alejandro Montoya über den Weg laufen musste. Wie gebannt betrachtet sie ihn, und die verzehrende Sehnsucht überwältigt sie. Vor Jahren hatten sie einander geliebt, als gäbe es nur sie und ihre grenzenlose Lust ... Jetzt behauptet Alejandro kühn, ihr Vater habe Gelder veruntreut! Wenn das wahr ist ... Rebecca will verhindern, dass Alejandro sich an ihrer Familie rächt. Deshalb nimmt sie den Job als seine Haushälterin an. Aber in seiner Nähe schlägt ihr Herz immer noch höher ...

A lifetime of wisdom from a true American patriot The country is more polarized than it has been for decades, but John McCain is the rare public figure who has earned the respect of colleagues and constituents on both sides of the aisle. A model for bipartisanship and political integrity, in his forty years in politics McCain has never been afraid to buck trends or ruffle a few feathers. His words are more important today than ever. Sample quotes: “In prison, I fell in love with my country.” “Nothing in life is more liberating than to fight for a cause larger than yourself, something that encompasses you but is not defined by your existence alone.” “Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history.” “It is your character, and your character alone, that will make your life happy or unhappy.”

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich BWL - Beschaffung, Produktion, Logistik, Note: 1,7, Leibniz Akademie Hannover - Verwaltungs- und Wirtschaftsakademie Hannover, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Kostendruck vieler Unternehmen fuhrt dazu, dass die Unternehmensprozesse starker in den Fokus der Betrachtung geraten. Auch die Beschaffung kann sich dem nicht entziehen, zumal sie in den Unternehmen eine zunehmend grossere Rolle spielt. Wenn in einem Unternehmen die Beschaffungsprozesse nicht klar definiert sind oder von den Mitarbeitern nicht eingehalten werden, lasst sich dahinter ein enormes Einsparpotenzial vermuten. In der Wirtschaft stellt dies ein nicht zu unterschatzendes Problem dar. Aus diesem Grund beschaftigt sich die vorliegende Arbeit mit dem Thema des Maverick Buying (MB)."

Founded in 1847 in Lebanon, Tennessee, the Cumberland School of Law holds a unique place in the history of American legal education. As the premier law school in the South in the nineteenth century, Cumberland trained two United States Supreme Court justices, nine senators, a secretary of state, and scores of other federal and state judges, representatives, and governors. Cumberland is among the oldest law schools in the southeast and is the first law school to have been sold outright from one university to another, passing from Cumberland University to Birmingham, Alabama's Howard College (now Samford University) in 1961. This book is a comprehensive narrative analysis of the school's pedagogical and social history in the context of legal education throughout the South and the nation.
