Bayou-born Lucky Boucher knew Jacey Wheeler was out of his league. She was more than just a high-class blonde with the body of a goddess, she was the brains behind a successful P.I. firm--and Lucky's boss. So he kept his hands off her and his head on their private investigations. For the first time since they had met, what she wanted from him had absolutely nothing to do with business. With their current case heating up and their professional relationship scorching, Lucky was more than willing to do whatever it took to keep the boss happy....
Født Klog. En bog, som gør os alle klogere på børn Alle børn er født kloge. Vi gør som forældre alt, hvad der står i vores magt, for at tilfredsstille det lille væsens behov, og alligevel glemmer mange at lytte til og tale med barnet. Børn forstår, hvad vi siger og mærker, hvordan vi har det – helt fra fødslen. Det er derfor vigtigt at lytte til barnets udtryk, tale med barnet og bruge hele vores sanseapparat for at forstå barnets ønsker og behov. Hvis børn og forældre forstår hinanden bedre, vil de sammen kunne skabe noget helt enestående – et herligt liv for både barnet og forældrene, mener forfatteren til Født klog, sundhedsplejerske Lena Dyhrberg. I den ånd er bogen Født klog blevet til – i ønsket om at give forældre en god forståelse af deres unikke barn. Som sundhedsplejerske gennem mange år er Lena Dyhrberg blevet bekræftet i det spæde barns klogskab: Det nyfødte barn forstår, hvad du siger. Hvis du taler til barnet, så bringer du bare en meddelelse. Hvis du taler med barnet, så kigger du på dit barn, får kontakt og vil kunne se, du får et svar. Svaret kan være, at barnet ændrer mimik. Måske pludrer barnet eller er helt stille.
Det kan også være, at dit barn spræller med hele kroppen og viser dig, at nu skal I have det sjovt. Derfor ændrer barnet kropssprog. Dette og meget andet handler Født klog om – i håbet om, at forældrerollen kan blive lettere at håndtere, når den voksne lytter og taler med barnet.
In this authoritative volume, race and ethnicity are themselves considered as central organizing principles in why, how, where and by whom crimes are committed and enforced. The contributors argue that dimensions of race and ethnicity condition the very laws that make certain behaviors criminal, the perception of crime and those who are criminalized, the determination of who becomes a victim of crime under which circumstances, the responses to laws and crime that make some more likely to be defined as criminal, and the ways that individuals and communities are positioned and empowered to respond to crime.

"SHE'S YOURS." Two handwritten words changed Dr. Greg Hamilton's playboy lifestyle forever. From the moment he found his baby girl on the doorstep, she held his heart in her tiny hands.
Juggling fatherhood and a busy practice wasn't easy, so when the shy and lovely Jane Dale proposed she be baby Joy's nanny, Greg didn't question his luck....
Jane's pulse beat fast when she faced the man who'd supposedly seduced and left her sister. When she'd joined his household under false, she hadn't expected her niece's father to be caring, honest ... and much too attractive. Would her deception cost her the child and the man of her heart?
Call Me Tom is the first book-length biography of one of Missouri’s most successful senators. A moderate liberal in a conservative state, Thomas F. Eagleton was known for his political independence, integrity, and intelligence, likely the reasons Eagleton never once lost an election in his thirty years of public service. Born in St. Louis, Eagleton began his public career in 1956 as St.
Louis Circuit Attorney. At 27, he was the youngest person in the history of the state to hold that position, and he duplicated the feat in his next two elected positions, attorney general in 1960 and lieutenant governor in 1964. In 1968, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, where he served until 1987. He was thrown into the national spotlight in 1972 when revelations regarding his mental health, particularly the shock treatments he received for depression, forced his resignation as a vice presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. All of that would overshadow his significant contributions as senator, especially on environmental and social legislation, as well as his defense of Congressional authority on war making and his role in the U.
S. military disengagement from Southeast Asia in 1973. Respected biographer James N. Giglio provides readers with an encompassing and nuanced portrait of Eagleton by placing the man and his career in the context of his times. Giglio allows readers to see his rumpled suits, smell the smoke of his Pall Mall cigarettes, hear his gravelly voice, and relish his sense of humor. At the same time, Giglio does not shy away from the personal torments that Eagleton had to overcome. A definitive examination of the senator’s career also reveals his unique ability to work with Republican counterparts, especially prior to the 1980s when bipartisanship was more possible. Measuring the effect his mental illness had on his career, Giglio determines that the removal of aspirations for higher office in 1972 made Eagleton a better senator. He consistently took principled stands, with the ultimate goal of preserving and modernizing the agenda of Franklin D. Roosevelt, his favorite president. Thoroughly researched using the Eagleton Papers and interviews with more than eighty-five people close to Eagleton, including family, friends, colleagues, subordinates, and former classmates, Call Me Tom offers an engaging and in-depth portrayal of a man who remained a devoted public servant throughout his life.
