Charming Handsome Sheikh Book Excerpt:

He is a rich Sheikh. She is my bodyguard. Will their hate bloom into love? Zayed Being the Sheikh of Azmia, one of the most powerful countries in the Middle-East, comes with a few perks. Endless parties, owning a handful of oasis including an island, sleeping around with princes and princesses, and unfortunately, having a guard to protect me. After a little stabbing incident—no, you naughty girl, it was a literal dagger-in-my-abdomen-and-I-fainted stabbing incident—my bodyguard turns out to be none other than my ex-lover, Elena Hill. She is strong, fierce, smart, but she is a cold witch and her existence taints my fun. The only thing I still like about her is her ample bosom. Don’t tell her, but I fantasize about them a lot. Not to mention, she is a beautiful plaything. I had given her my own heart when we were sixteen only to be betrayed. Now all I want to do is tug at her blonde ponytail and kiss away her frown. Having her as a guard puts a hindrance in my plan and the way Azmia is slowly starting to crumble, I have to do something about it. I won’t be able to keep my hands off of her as much as we hate each other because under our hateful guise, we adore each other. But I have grown up, charming her into my bed was one of my tricks. I have several others left… Elena I thought catching the biggest drug ring leader in New York as an FBI agent was hard. Until my friend Zain, Sultan of Azmia, asked me to babysit a thirty-four-year-old idiot of a Sheikh. Zayed Al Fasih is an irresistible asshole. The only redeeming quality his six feet three body holds is his dimples. He is handsome, charming, notoriously mischief and started a fire—yes, a everyone-needs-to-evacuate-the-palace fire in The Golden Palace of Azmia. I have to help my friends, protect Azmia, and the charming Sheikh who loves to annoy me and somehow we always end up naked and pressed against each other. He is the last person I want to be with while his smug boyish grin slowly thaws my cold heart after all these years of hating him. Because under all his charming facade, he has a heart of gold that was broken. As much as I hate him, I want to help him. Even if it costs me my own heart in return. “You are cruel.” “You don’t know cruel, Elena. Now spread your legs and let me see how much you soaked my sheets so I can spank you for it.” Charming Handsome Sheikh is the fourth book in the sweet, steamy royal romance Alluring Rulers of Azmia Series. It is a perfect read if you enjoy sweet, steamy romance. No cliffhangers! If you like raw emotions, diverse characters, passionate HEAs with sizzling love scenes, then you’ll love Mahi Mistry’s Alluring Rulers of Azmia Series.

Her cheating ex-husband's living with the woman he left her for, her oldest daughter blames her for the divorce, and she's broke. When her sister’s best friend, Nash—the too-young, way too-hot local contractor—makes a proposition, she figures she doesn’t have anything left to lose. Except maybe her mind, thanks to all the fantasizing she’s been doing about him… Nash King is working his butt off so he can take over the family business. The arrangement with his best friend’s sister should help, not make it harder to ignore a decade-long attraction to the hot-as-hell Rory.

The Evolution of Human Pair Bonding Friendship and Sexual Attraction Book Excerpt:

The Evolution of Human Pair-Bonding, Friendship, and Sexual Attraction presents an evolutionary history of romantic love, male-female pair-bonding, same-sex friendship, and sexual attraction, drawing on sexuality research, gay and lesbian studies, history, literature, anthropology, and evolutionary science. Employing evolutionary theory as a framework, close same-sex friendship is examined as an adaptive trait that has harnessed love, affection, and sexual pleasure to navigate same-sex environments for both men and women, ultimately benefiting their reproductive success and promoting the inheritance of traits for friendship. Chapters consider the desire to form close same-sex friendships and ask if this is embedded in our biology, concluding that most humans have the capacity to form loving, meaningful, and sexual relationships with men and women. This book takes on a unique interdisciplinary approach and is essential reading for those studying and working in sexuality research, anthropology, sociology, evolutionary psychology, and gay and lesbian studies. It will also be of interest to marriage and family therapists as well as sex therapists.

Burning Muses Age Gap Small Town Romance Book Excerpt:

Don't let fear sway you. You're not your past. Seraphina Daniels feels like running--the kind of running that doesn't include a set destination. So, when her childhood friend calls in distress, she's more than prepared to leave behind her failed--and famous--relationship, her writer's block, and her impending thirtieth birthday. But upon her return to the Ozarks--a sharp contrast to New York City--she discovers that everything's changed. I think I wanted you before I even knew what it was like to want someone. The homecoming brings Sera to Chace Holloway: the man who's made a home out of the place that was once hers. Romance isn't an option, but friendship comes easily with the twenty-two-year-old songwriter--despite the attraction they both feel. He is music, and I am merely madness and melancholy. What started as an escape becomes more of a trap when the past begins to wrap around the present. As hope blooms, Sera and Chace face their biggest obstacles--what they each fear, and what old lovers desire. Burning Muses is Book 1 of the Muse & Music Series. It can be read as a standalone.

Just Love Book Excerpt:

Once upon a time, civic virtue described an ethic of political involvement for all citizens. As American democracy evolved, however, the public and private spheres separated. The latter became domesticated and disengaged from public life by an ideology based on gender and a "disinterested love" of neighbor. Private passion was to be isolated from public reason, private love from public justice. But it need not be so. Drawing on examples of ordinary heroes, Ann Mongoven argues for a transformed civic virtue that articulates "just love": passionate care for fellow citizens as such. By connecting theory to practice, Mongoven dramatizes the challenges raised through tangible political examples and lets ordinary heroes suggest the path toward civic renewal.

Teachers Act Up Creating Multicultural Learning Communities Through Theatre Book Excerpt:

If teachers want to create positive change in the lives of their students, then they must first be able to create positive change in their own lives. This book describes a powerful professional development approach that merges the scholarship of critical pedagogy with the Theatre of the Oppressed. Participants "act up" in order to explore real-life scenarios and rehearse difficult conversations they are likely to have with colleagues, students, administrators, and parents. The authors have practiced the theatrical strategies presented here with pre- and in-service teachers in numerous contexts, including college courses, professional development seminars, and PreK–12 classrooms. They include step-by-step instructions with vivid photographs to help readers use these revolutionary theatre strategies in their own contexts for a truly unique learning experience.

Learning How to Feel Book Excerpt:

Learning How to Feel explores the ways in which children and adolescents learn not just how to express emotions that are thought to be pre-existing, but actually how to feel. The volume assumes that the embryonic ability to feel unfolds through a complex dialogue with the social and cultural environment and specifically through reading material. The fundamental formation takes place in childhood and youth. A multi-authored historical monograph, Learning How to Feel uses children's literature and advice manuals to access the training practices and learning processes for a wide range of emotions in the modern age, circa 1870-1970. The study takes an international approach, covering a broad array of social, cultural, and political milieus in Britain, Germany, India, Russia, France, Canada, and the United States. Learning How to Feel places multidirectional learning processes at the centre of the discussion, through the concept of practical knowledge. The book innovatively draws a framework for broad historical change during the course of the period. Emotional interaction between adult and child gave way to a focus on emotional interactions among children, while gender categories became less distinct. Children were increasingly taught to take responsibility for their own emotional development, to find 'authenticity' for themselves. In the context of changing social, political, cultural, and gender agendas, the building of nations, subjects and citizens, and the forging of moral and religious values, Learning How to Feel demonstrates how children were provided with emotional learning tools through their reading matter to navigate their emotional lives.

Sexual Abuse and the Sexual Offender Book Excerpt:

Sexual Abuse and the Sexual Offender examines the myths perpetuated by the media and widely held by the public, by providing actual data, with case examples, to demonstrate how sexual offending occurs, who commits these acts, what might cause such crimes, how sexual offenders are assessed, supervised and treated, and how to prevent such offending from occurring to the reader or to members of her or his own family. This book is not a textbook on how to assess or treat sexual offenders for a clinical audience. Rather, it aims to educate the general public about how experts in this field diagnose, analyze, assess and treat such offenders and what steps they may take to prevent such abuse in the future. It describes, with actual case examples, how we recognize a variety of offenders, how to separate them and assess their risk, and how to avoid becoming prey to them.
