Just A Kiss Away Book Description :

After arriving on a lush Pacific island, Eulalie Grace LaRue is to be finally reunited with the absent father she hasn't seen since childhood. Yet before her long dreamed-of meeting can take place, the lovely but pampered Southern belle is caught in the crossfire of a violent revolution and thrown into the rugged arms of American mercenary soldier Sam Forester. On the run in the jungle, this battle-scarred soldier of fortune hasn't a clue what to do with the naive blonde in his care. Survival is his top priority, but he can not resist Lollie's endearing, helpless, and laughable charm...or deny the growing attraction between them. Though Sam thrives on chance and risk, falling in love is the one chance he isn't willing to take. Powerless against the desire that consumes them both, Lollie surrenders to his passionate embrace. But when he dismisses her affections, she is determined to fight for him, to prove that in the steamy heat of paradise, two hearts can find the love of a lifetime.

Just a Kiss Book Description :

Riley Callahan’s plans to reveal his secret feelings for his best friend are ruined when his life is drastically altered in Afghanistan. Watching the love of his life falling for his brother was enough to send Riley straight to boot camp. But over a year later, he’s officially a marine, and Beau and Paige are no longer an item. When Riley’s tour in Afghanistan is up, he intends to confess his feelings to Paige and win his best friend’s heart once and for all. But all that changes when an IED takes the life of a comrade and leaves Riley an amputee. Now he’s heading home, injured and troubled. His plans to win Paige are a distant dream. She deserves so much more than the man that’s left. All he can do now is put some healthy distance between them. But upon his return he discovers his family has arranged for him to stay with Paige. Paige is a nurturer at heart and happy to take care of her best buddy. By all appearances he’s adjusting miraculously well to his disability. But as the days pass, Paige begins to see that the smiles and laughter are just a mask for the pain he’s hiding. He has nightmares and mood swings, and his unwavering independence keeps him from accepting help from anyone, including her. To make matters worse, her job is in serious jeopardy. The animal shelter that she’s poured her heart into has lost its funding, and she has three months to come up the money needed to save it. As the weeks wear on with the two in such close proximity, Paige’s feelings for Riley begin to shift into unchartered territory. Why is she suddenly noticing his corded arm muscles and the way his lips curl at the corners? Will she be able to deny her feelings for another Callahan brother? And will Riley let his heart heal so he can let Paige in?

The glorious tradition of the Broadway musical from Irving Berlin to Jerome Kern and Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. And then . . . Cats and Les Miz.

Show Boat, Oklahoma!, Carousel, Gypsy, and more. In an energetic blend of musical history, analysis, and backstage chat, Mark Steyn shows us the genius behind the 'simple' musical, and asks hard questions about the British invasion of Broadway and the future of the form.

The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Poetry Book Description :

'I am inclined to think that we want new forms . . . as well as thoughts', confessed Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning in 1845. The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Poetry provides a closely-read appreciation of the vibrancy and variety of Victorian poetic forms, and attends to poems as both shaped and shaping forces. The volume is divided into four main sections. The first section on 'Form' looks at a few central innovations and engagements—'Rhythm', 'Beat', 'Address', 'Rhyme', 'Diction', 'Syntax', and 'Story'. The second section, 'Literary Landscapes', examines the traditions and writers (from classical times to the present day) that influence and take their bearings from Victorian poets. The third section provides 'Readings' of twenty-three poets by concentrating on particular poems or collections of poems, offering focused, nuanced engagements with the pleasures and challenges offered by particular styles of thinking and writing. The final section, 'The Place of Poetry', conceives and explores 'place' in a range of ways in order to situate Victorian poetry within broader contexts and discussions: the places in which poems were encountered; the poetic representation and embodiment of various sites and spaces; the location of the 'Victorian' alongside other territories and nationalities; and debates about the place - and displacement - of poetry in Victorian society. This Handbook is designed to be not only an essential resource for those interested in Victorian poetry and poetics, but also a landmark publication—provocative, seminal volume that will offer a lasting contribution to future studies in the area.

When Bruce Donovan, a young Madison Avenue executive and the son of advertising mogul Kent Donovan, impulsively kisses Carolyn, a young college student working for Bruce, all kinds of sparks fly. When Carolyn tells her parents what happened, she is persuaded by her father to confront the Donovans and threaten to press sexual harassment charges.

Running into each other in the most unpredictable of places, they realize that they are falling in love, but they know that their relationship must be kept secret. Filled with humor, pathos, and the resilience of young love, Just a Kiss is a warm and sweet romance that brings us back to the wonder and excitement of our own first love and lost youth.
