PATTON'S WAY [Siren Menage Amour #14: Erotic Menage a Quatre Romance, F/M/M/M, with BDSM] Patton Jones has been deceiving Chase, Slade, and Devin Davis, but she's tired of playing the sweet, innocent, sisterly figure. When the brothers confront her with her lies, she decides it's time for the Davis brothers to see her as the woman she really is. Patton isn't the only one keeping secrets and the brothers fear that their own hidden lifestyle might be more than their little woman can handle. The brothers are unaware that Patton knows about their dark desires and is not the least bit intimidated. Knowing and experiencing are two different things. As Patton tastes small samples of the forbidden fruit, she becomes even more reckless in her enthusiasm to get the three brothers into her bed. Patton's wild schemes go too far and the brothers have to make a decision that will seal all their fates. *** 5 Angels: "From beginning to end this book scorches. Ms. Penn does a brilliant job of weaving the lust and love these four have for each other into a tale that does more than titillate. Her ability to engage the emotions of each character and bring them out in the open keeps this from being just a book about kinky sex. Sure there's plenty of that, but it's the deep emotions and love flowing through that turn this into a story worth reading. It's a fine line for an author to walk when portraying any BDSM lifestyle but Ms. Penn does it well and at no stage did any of it come across in a negative way. She explored the trust involved in such a relationship with skill and I thoroughly enjoyed Patton's submission to her three masters. I also enjoyed the way Patton's very independent, stubborn nature wasn't compromised in any way by her submission in the bedroom. Her body was more than happy to hand over her pleasure but her mind and spirit were never broken. I'm very much looking forward to the next installment of Ms. Penn's Cattleman's Club series." -- Rachel C., Fallen Angel Reviews. *** 5 Bookmarks: "I absolutely LOVED Patton's Way: Cattleman's Club, Book 1! I would rank this as one of my favorite stories of the year. Remember the name Jenny Penn as I predict this author as a true rising star among authors. This story hooked me right from the beginning and never let go, I couldn't put the book down. The plot twists and turns and the friction and heat between the brothers and Patton explode like an inferno. Patton's Way: Cattleman's Club, Book 1 is outstanding and I can't wait for the next story in this series, Hailey's Game. This story will turn you on like no other." -- Daria Wright, Wild on Books *** 5 Blue Ribbons: "Oh wow! I simply wasn't able to put this book down once I started reading. Patton's Way roused all sorts of emotions in me - everything from tears to laughter and even a little envy...ok, a lot of envy. I'm now anxiously awaiting upcoming books in this series - especially Hailey's Game which will have Patton's friend, Hailey, who is the subject of Cole and Kyle's desire. Cole and Hailey's antagonism for each other is just too intense not to result in a seriously passionate relationship and I'm really anxious to find out how Kyle fits into the mix." -- Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies

Kelsey Martin finds secret inspiration in Theo Zamora, a dark, taciturn trapezist--until his partner dies in a tragic accident and he decides to leave the circus for good.

Before long the two are collaborating on an aerial silks act for a new production, the Cirque de Minuit. Theo’s impatience with Kelsey’s naivete is matched only by his passion for her, and the two soon become embroiled in a tempestuous, consuming romance.

FROM #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR SIERRA CARTWRIGHT Book four in the Mastered series Things couldn't get worse. It was bad enough that Maggie had to spend the days with her boss and nemesis. Now to find out he's a Dom at her favourite place to play? Maggie Carpenter needs an escape from her everyday life and her overbearing boss. David Tomlinson has ruined her life and career by acquiring her family's business and tying her to an untenable employment contract. So she and her friend head for an evening at the Den to explore their wildest fantasies...only to find David there looking ridiculously sexy with a bare chest and a set of handcuffs attached to his belt loop. David is just as shocked to find his spitfire employee at the Den. He leans against the wall, watching, unable to wrap his mind around the idea that the woman who constantly challenges him might be a sub. But when another Dom approaches her and she casts her gaze down, he sees another side of her. His reaction to the submissive Maggie is immediate and sizzling hot and so is the unwelcome jealousy he experiences. He's always had a strict no-fraternisation rule, but he's determined to have her in his cuffs before the evening is out, despite the dozens of reasons he shouldn't. He wants Maggie surrendered to him, in his cuffs, literally as well as figuratively. Outstanding Industry Reviews Fantastic read! Another winner for Sierra Cartwright. ~ BDSM Book Reviews The fourth book in the Mastered series, In His Cuffs, gives the reader a very intense story that kept this reader engrossed. ~ Literary Nymphs Reviews The scenes that they have are intense and hot and the love that they develop begins to shine through in all that they do...I am excited to see what happens next in this series. ~ Long and Short Reviews About Sierra Cartwright Sierra Cartwright was born in Manchester, England and raised in Colorado. Moving to the United States was nothing like her young imagination had concocted. She expected to see cowboys everywhere, and a covered wagon or two would have been really nice! Now she writes novels as untamed as the Rockies, while spending a fair amount of time in Texas where, it turns out, the Texas Rangers law officers don't ride horses to roundup the bad guys, or have six-shooters strapped to their sexy thighs as she expected. And she's yet to see a poster that says Wanted: Dead or Alive. (Can you tell she has a vivid imagination?) Sierra wrote her first book at age nine, a fanfic episode of Star Trek when she was fifteen, and she completed her first romance novel at nineteen. She actually kissed William Shatner (Captain Kirk) on the cheek once, and she says that's her biggest claim to fame. Her adventure through the turmoil of trust has taught her that love is the greatest gift. Like her image of the Old West, her writing is untamed, and nothing is off-limits. She invites you to take a walk on the wild side but only if you dare.

Medieval Misogyny and the Invention of Western Romantic Love

Until now the advent of Western romantic love has been seen as a liberation from—or antidote to—ten centuries of misogyny. In this major contribution to gender studies, R. Howard Bloch demonstrates how similar the ubiquitous antifeminism of medieval times and the romantic idealization of woman actually are. Through analyses of a broad range of patristic and medieval texts, Bloch explores the Christian construction of gender in which the flesh is feminized, the feminine is aestheticized, and aesthetics are condemned in theological terms. Tracing the underlying theme of virginity from the Church Fathers to the courtly poets, Bloch establishes the continuity between early Christian antifeminism and the idealization of woman that emerged in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. In conclusion he explains the likely social, economic, and legal causes for the seeming inversion of the terms of misogyny into those of an idealizing tradition of love that exists alongside its earlier avatar until the current era. This startling study will be of great value to students of medieval literature as well as to historians of culture and gender.

A recent string of popular-level books written by the New Atheists have leveled the accusation that the God of the Old Testament is nothing but a bully, a murderer, and a cosmic child abuser. This viewpoint is even making inroads into the church. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? And how are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments? In this timely and readable book, apologist Paul Copan takes on some of the most vexing accusations of our time, including: God is arrogant and jealous God punishes people too harshly God is guilty of ethnic cleansing God oppresses women God endorses slavery Christianity causes violence and more Copan not only answers God's critics, he also shows how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.

Winner of the 2009 Smart Marriages® Impact Award Think all sex should be earth shattering? The quality of most couple sex doesn’t measure up to the much distorted image of the perfect romantic love/passionate sex encounter portrayed in popular culture.

With this foundation, couples can take a straightforward survey to determine which of four couple sexual styles best fits their relationship. Based on three years of research and treating more than 4,000 individuals and couples, Discovering Your Couple Sexual Style provides information, guidelines, exercises, and case studies that will help readers find their own sexual voice and develop a mutually satisfying sexual style.

"Video Green examines the explosion of late 1990s art produced by high-profile graduate programs that catapulted Los Angeles into the epicenter of the international art world. Probing the programs' own art-critical buzzwords, Chris Kraus asks how LA art came to be so completely divorced from the city's other realities. Radicalized beyond belief, Video Green does for contemporary art what Greil Marcus's Lipstick Traces did for the 20th century, mapping the persistence of peripheral culture."--BOOK JACKET.
