“Katharine Ashe writes with eloquence and power.” —Lisa Kleypas “You’ll be swept away by Katharine Ashe’s evocative writing.” —Sabrina Jeffries Following her sensational debut novel, Swept Away by a Kiss, author Katharine Ashe was named one of the “New Stars of Historical Romance” by the American Library Association publication Booklist. With each new book she has proven them right—and never more so than with her novel How to be a Proper Lady. Continuing her phenomenal Falcon Club series, Ashe enchants with this tale of a woman kidnapped as a child by pirates and returned years later to her English family. She must now learn how to be a cultured lady...and to navigate the treacherous waters of love with the notorious sea captain who brought her, kicking and screaming, back to society. This is witty, emotionally rich, and wonderfully imaginative storytelling that readers of Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James, and Johanna Lindsey will absolutely adore.

«Esta noche no vas a dormir…». Sangre cubana y un amor casi carnal por el arte, Luis es un seductor instintivo, de los que carecen de reglas e inhibiciones; por eso, ninguna mujer se le resiste, y sus conquistas terminan puntualmente en el taller de Navigli en el que pinta. Sobre sexo, cree saber incluso más de lo que necesita, al menos, hasta que conoce a la propietaria de una tiendecita de vinilos en la que el tiempo parece haberse detenido, quien, sin pedirle permiso, pasa de ser su enemiga jurada a ser su obsesión. Todo por culpa de un hurón. Pues sí, porque, cuando la graciosa mascota comienza a sobrar en casa de ella, una noche de primavera en la que Milán parece mágica, Luis se transforma en el Príncipe Azul: se ocupará de Lucky, pero, a cambio, ella tendrá que posar para él una tarde a la semana, durante seis semanas. Un contrato auténtico, del que Luis perderá pronto el control, arrebatado por una pasión que lo llevará, en el juego del placer, más lejos de lo que nunca ha llegado. Y, mientras persigue la inspiración y, poco a poco, conquista a su presa, no se dará cuenta de que, en realidad, el cazador ha sido cazado y de que puede que, con ella, haya encontrado el amor. Pero ¿está listo para reconocerlo y aceptarlo? Todas las veces que quieras es una historia de erotismo arrollador, que desvela a las mujeres lo que todo hombre querría ocultarles, dentro y fuera de la cama: también los hombres se enamoran y, con el corazón, el sexo sí que no tiene límites…
Kasie knows who she’s supposed to be. But one passionate night with a mysterious stranger will teach her who she wants to be. You should sleep with a stranger, her best friend whispers in her ear as they take to Vegas for one last pre-wedding fling. Despite her best intentions, when Kasie Fitzgerald enters the casino and sees him, a man whose tailored clothes belied a powerful, even dangerous, presence, she loses herself to the moment. Maybe it’s the dress, much shorter than she’d ever normally wear, or the Scotch, but something makes her give herself over to him more completely than she's ever done with a man before. It was supposed to be just one night. But right as she’s thinking she wants more, he shows up in her office with an agenda. As the billionaire CEO of a company that’s engaged her PR firm, his demands just became her reality...and he desires so much more than just some attention in the boardroom.
Mexican-Americans now constitute two thirds of what has become the largest and fastest-growing minority group in the United States, Hispanics. They have distinct cultural patterns and values that those who seek to serve them competently as clinicians and educators, and those who attempt to study them, need to understand. This is the first comprehensive overview of the psychology of the Chicana/o experience since 1984. Solidly grounded in the latest theory and research, much of which is relevant to other Latina/o groups as well, The Handbook of Chicana/o Psychology and Mental Health is an indispensable source of up-to-date information and guidance for mental health and education professionals, their trainees and students; and for social and behavioral scientists interested in the impact of cultural differences in multicultural settings.

Falling in love is easy. Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world. And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it. The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build. Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible. Through the tears, the second-guesses, the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope-sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend. When Ty shows back up with a new found determination to put his family back together, Elin's torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain. Life's not always easy. Love's not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it's their love written in those scars that will hold them together ... or break them apart.
This book is a collection of studies of drug policies in several Latin American countries. The chapters analyze the specific histories of drug policies in each country, as well as related phenomena and case studies throughout the region. It presents conceptual reflections on the origins of prohibition and the “War on Drugs,” including the topic of human rights and cognitive freedom. Further, the collection reflects on the pioneering role of some Latin American countries in changing paradigms of international drug policy. Each case study provides an analysis of where each state is now in terms of policy reform within the context of its history and current socio-political circumstances. Concurrently, local movements, initiatives, and backlash against the reformist debate within the hemisphere are examined. The recent changes regarding the regulation of marijuana in the United States and their possible impact on Latin America are also addressed. This work is an important, up-to-date and well-researched reference for all who are interested in drug policy from a Latin American perspective.

The New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled books returns with the third standalone romance in the Legal Briefs series, a collection of sexy novels about first crushes, second chances, and the final verdict of the heart. When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate—and prized—parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Louboutins. When Kennedy looks at Brent, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue–worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school in order to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell for her. But she’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore—she’s a Washington, DC, prosecutor with a long winning streak. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case, and Kennedy thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own. But things aren’t exactly working out the way she planned. Brent has his sights set on Kennedy, and every fiery exchange only makes him want her more—and makes her wonder if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. In the end, they may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.
