The Genie s Heartwish Book Excerpt:

Five thousand years ago, Sumerian warrior Zakkar Tymon gallantly protected the virtue of a love struck virgin priestess, dooming him to an eternity of servitude to women. Reduced to being a slave to women’s impulses, this bold, brave hero now exists solely to give women pleasure, act upon their every urge, and grant them three wishes. Months after reaching her goal weight, popular weight-loss counselor, and baker extraordinaire, Laila Malone, is tired of waiting for men to fall at her feet, dumbstruck by her leaner visage. So now she’s focusing on business instead of love. With enough money, maybe she can open the diet-conscious bakery she’s dreamed of owning. On the way home from work, a sign for an estate sale at a mansion in the ritziest part of town, catches Laila’s eye. Maybe the ancient bottle she unearths in the musty basement is a treasure that will allow Laila and her dog to happily grow old together—alone, but filthy rich…and thin. When Laila uncorks her find, she gasps in fear as a half-naked, saber-wielding man exits the bottle in a vapor. With sun-bronzed muscles, long dark hair and hypnotic eyes, he’s devastatingly handsome. The epitome of all her fantasies, he says he’s here to give her pleasure. If she has to lose her mind, this is exactly the hallucination Laila wants. The Genie’s Heartwish is book 2 of the Heartwishes series. This full-length contemporary romance novel is full of warmth and humor—with a very special touch of magic and a healthy dose of fantasy. It’s inspired by the author’s previously published novella, Samantha and her Genie. While all Heartwishes books are part of a standalone series, you’ll enjoy them more if you read them in order. These are small town romances with happily-ever-afters, and no cliffhangers.

Creating the Productive Workplace Book Excerpt:

The built environment affects our physical, mental and social well-being. Here renowned professionals from practice and academia explore the evidence from basic research as well as case studies to test this belief. They show that many elements in the built environment contribute to establishing a milieu which helps people to be healthier and have the energy to concentrate while being free to be creative. The health and well-being agenda pervades society in many different ways but we spend much of our lives in buildings, so they have an important role to play within this total picture. This demands us to embrace change and think beyond the conventional wisdom while retaining our respect for it. Creating the Productive Workplace shows how we need to balance the needs of people and the ever-increasing enabling technologies but also to take advantage of the healing powers of Nature and let them be part of environmental design. This book aims to lead to more human-centred ways of designing the built environment with deeper meaning and achieve healthier and more creative, as well as more productive places to work.

Remote Workplace Culture Book Excerpt:

The way we work has changed and a strong, supportive company culture is key for success. When employees work remotely, even occasionally, HR professionals and business leaders need to think differently. Practitioners now need to motivate their workforce, support talent development, ensure an inclusive environment and protect their employees' mental health, all without being in the same physical space. A strong and effective company culture that is built specifically with this purpose in mind is crucial. Remote Workplace Culture is a practical guide that shows how to achieve this and explains why simply replicating what used to happen in the office in a virtual environment doesn't work. This book shows how a strong culture for remote, hybrid and flexible working helps attract the best talent, whether this is nationally or globally and explains how to prioritize inclusion. There is also specific guidance on wellbeing initiatives, how to replace social learning in a hybrid or remote working culture and how to avoid common pitfalls such as an overreliance on technology, the blurring of work/life boundaries and a misunderstanding of remote working etiquette. Supported by case studies from BBC, Salesforce, leading financial services brands and law firms, Remote Workplace Culture is essential reading for all HR professionals and business leaders needing to develop strong company culture in the new world of work.
