Against Company Policy: When desire is faced with physical boundaries, it's time to get a little creative...and a little kinky. Cassie Tucker, a hard-working project leader at a software design company, can't believe her luck when she's assigned towork with the hottest guy at the firm. Too bad his office is hundreds of miles away. Technology will get them through-both in the boardroom and the bedroom. Ian Cope has had the hots for Cassie for two years. Landing this project with her is a dream come true. Until he discovers he's expected to use Cassie to aid in a consolidation plan that will shut down her office. He really should keep things professional, all things considered. But she's a temptation he can't refuse...and he'll go against company policy to have her. Against The Wall: When Sasha gets transferred to the west coast office, she welcomes the added distance between her and her abusive ex-boyfriend. He left her feeling vulnerable toward men, and rather than free herself from the corner she'd been pushed into, she found she liked being walled in it instead. Aaron is a dominant man, in the both his professional and personal lives. Only, he hasn't been finding the pleasure he'd so easily come by with submissive women. He's in a rut with no clear way of getting out of it. Maybe he'd just pushed his boundaries one too many times ... or maybe he needs a greater challenge. But when Aaron and Sasha meet, sparks fly, though she is too jaded to do anything about it. With a little tough love from her best friend, she finds herself unable to avoid the hot enigma that is Aaron and testing the walls she'd carefully erected around her heart. Aaron wants Sasha, but can he break through her walls without being pushed against one himself?

She soon feels very out of place, however, when she realizes the party is intended to be something wild. When each gentleman draws the name of the lady who will be his Valentine for the next three days, the Duke of Langford, the worst rake of them all, finds himself deliberately but quite inexplicably choosing the card of the lady he suspects is prim and virtuous—and very unlike any other he has known. Golden Rose The Master of Ceremonies in Bath has devised an intriguing plan for the annual Valentine’s ball at the Assembly Rooms. Each gentleman is to send an anonymous favor to the lady of his choice and she is to wear it or carry it to the ball to discover the identity of her Valentine. But when Roger Bradshaw sends a golden rose to the lady of his choice, his mischievous young cousin, entrusted with delivering it, presents it to another young lady he considers more worthy. A Waltz Among the Stars Viscount Brandon, determined to put behind him his grief over the death of his young wife two years before, accepts an invitation to a Valentine’s house party, where he plans to woo the young daughter of the house. However, he finds himself drawn instead to her older sister, who nurses a deep grief of her own while also living apart from her family under the disgrace of a youthful indiscretion.

Ernie Pyle’s human and unforgettable picture of England under the Blitzkrieg—a deeply moving story of courage and faith. Ernie Pyle in England, first published in 1941, is the account of the journalist’s stay in England, Scotland and Wales during the height of the German bombing blitz on London and other cities of the United Kingdom. Pyle, one of the most famous correspondents of the Second World War, had an easy-going, folksy-style of writing, making the book an enjoyable yet informative read about the conditions he encountered. His descriptions of the effects of the bombing, nights spent in air raid shelters, food- and gas-rationing, and daily life in London remain classic pieces of war-time reporting.
