In this dazzling novel from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell, a beauty without means and a man without scruples strike a scandalous bargain that takes them into the heart of desire. . . No gentleman would guarantee a lady's safety in exchange for her virtue. But that is precisely why Cloud Ryder would never call himself a gentleman. He wants Emily Brockinger the moment he sets eyes on her, and volunteers to guide her and her ward through lawless Colorado territory--if she'll share his bed. Yet to his surprise, the delicate Boston blueblood has a grit and fire that thrill him as no woman ever has. . . Emily has no choice but to accept Cloud's terms, and no way to control her body's response to the virile, part-Cherokee drifter. The trail is strewn with obstacles, and the dangers only increase once they reach their destination. All his life, Cloud has shunned commitment, but now the only way to keep Emily safe is to open his heart--to the one woman with the passion and power to break it. . . "The superbly talented Howell never disappoints." --Romantic Times "The laughter mingles with the tears in any story from the talented pen of Hannah Howell. If you haven't read her before, start now!" --Affair de Coeur
Native title has dramatically altered the law and public policy in Australia. It has had a fundamental impact on social relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and the courts have played a central role in its development, and continue to do so. Fifteen years have seen the evolution of native title from uncertain foundations to an arguably comprised jurisprudence. Strelein traces the development of the courts' thinking from the original decision Mabo v Queensland [No.2], through to the significant High Court cases in 2002, and the Federal Court's implementation in cases like De Rose, and the recent Bennell decision in 2008. Each chapter contains a discrete analysis of the most significant cases during the period. A timeline maps the key doctrines while the book's conclusion identifies the underlying themes and contradictions in the law. This is the only critical non-textbook analysis of native title law. The new edition contains an updated annotated case list, while a revised introduction and conclusion comment on recent developments.
Will a Christian college build a student's faith or tear it down? Parents and students sacrifice large sums of money for a Christian college education. Why? They are purchasing a guarantee their child's faith in God and the Bible will be guarded and developed. But is the Bible being taught? Will they graduate believing in the inerrancy of Scripture, the Flood of Noah's Day, and a literal six day creation? Apologetics powerhouse Ken Ham and Dr. Greg Hall reveal an eye opening assessment of 200 Christian colleges and universities. In an unprecedented 2010 study by America Research Group, college presidents, religion and science department heads were polled on critical areas of Scripture and core faith questions. Ken Ham is an accomplished author of some of the most popular and effective apologetics research on the market. He is the founder of Answers in Genesis - U.S. and the president of the Creation Museum. I have no doubt that the average church member would be shocked and outraged to discover how many supposedly evangelical colleges and universities have more or less given up their commitment to biblical inerrancy and the authority of Scripture—especially when dealing with the early chapters of Genesis. I’m grateful for this important work by Ken Ham and Greg Hall, documenting the many compromises that have ravaged the Christian academy. Already Compromised is a much needed wake-up call and a summons to arms for faithful, courageous Bible believers. We need to stand up, declare our faith, and defend the truth of Scripture courageously. The stakes are high and the battle may be more fierce than ever, but God will bless those who honor His Word. May He bless us with clear, unwavering voices. — John MacArthur

This is a story about a young boy from Africa who had potential in the film industry. His chances of showing his talent were suppressed by someone who was nominated to assist a youth like Denzel with unique talent that might be grown in that field. When luck ran out and things did not go as expected, he did not feel sorry for himself. He challenged life from a different angle, as he was from the racist country; he joined the struggle to fight the oppression. He left the country and went underground to obtain military training. He risked his life and went back to his country for a mission operation. Regrettably he was arrested before he could accomplish his mission through being betrayed by his fellow comrade who was caught before him. Through all the torture that he underwent in the hands of the South African special branch police department, he never revealed any information about his mission and background. He was found guilty and sentenced to thirty years in prison on information obtained from his comrade. He was released from prison after sixteen years on blanket amnesty negotiation between ANC and the apartheid government. His struggle continued even after the democracy in South Africa, because most black people were still in bondage. He did something extraordinary in suing the state without a legal representation and shook the whole justice system.
TWO AGENTS REUNITE TO BRING DOWN A KILLER IN COLORADO It had been two years since Special Agent Marisa Kelso had seen her ex-partner—and former lover—federal agent Flynn O'Connor. But with the reappearance of an elusive serial killer, Marisa was assigned to Flynn's team at a Colorado safe house. The attraction between them was still powerful, but Marisa remained focused on keeping their witness safe rather than acting on their sexual impulses. Then, as they closed in on a madman who'd stop at nothing to capture his prey, Marisa became his next target. It was up to Flynn to keep her out of the criminal's dangerous reach…but what about Flynn's much too tempting one?
