Intégrale de la série "Le défi des Hollister" de Beverly Long Des frères en mission. L’amour à protéger. Une épouse à protéger - Tome 1En arrivant à Ravesville, Chase Hollister est submergé par une multitude de souvenirs. Mais, très vite, il se ressaisit et revient à l’instant présent. Car, s’il est de retour dans le village de son enfance, ce n’est pas seulement pour vendre la ferme familiale, mais surtout pour accomplir la mission qui vient de lui être confiée : protéger Lorraine Taylor, témoin à charge dans le procès d’un dangereux criminel. Lorraine, qu’il a décidé de faire passer pour sa jeune épouse afin de mieux tromper ceux qui la recherchent, et dont la beauté et la fragilité éveillent en lui bien plus que des instincts protecteurs... La mariée sans mémoire - Tome 2« Puisque vous avez oublié votre nom, je vais vous appeler Stormy. Et je vais vous conduire à l’hôpital. » Paniquée, la jeune femme se débat pour tenter d’échapper à l’inconnu qui vient de la secourir. Certes, elle ignore comment elle s’est retrouvée sur cette route enneigée, blessée à la tête et vêtue d’une robe de mariée trempée, mais elle sait que si elle va à l’hôpital les hommes qui la recherchent la tueront. Visiblement touché par sa détresse, son ange gardien propose alors de l’accueillir chez lui, et Stormy, se laissant aller au réconfort de ses bras puissants, comprend qu’elle n’a pas d’autre choix que de lui confier sa vie... Une enfant en danger - Tome 3Le cœur battant, Bray regarde Summer, la femme qui lui a brisé le cœur quinze ans plus tôt. Avec ses yeux verts et sa chevelure rousse, elle est toujours aussi belle, et Bray comprend qu’il n’a jamais cessé de l’aimer. Pourtant, bien des choses ont changé depuis leur rupture. Summer est divorcée, elle a deux enfants — un grand garçon et une fillette de cinq ans —, et un passé dont elle se refuse à parler. Jusqu’au jour où le danger que Bray sentait planer autour de Summer se précise : Adie, sa fille, vient d’être enlevée, et c’est vers lui qu’elle se tourne pour qu’il la retrouve... Le rempart du mensonge - Tome 4Rafe est vivant ! En voyant réapparaître son mari, disparu en mer quatre ans plus tôt, Trish est submergée par le bonheur. Un bonheur qui se teinte pourtant de colère lorsqu’elle pense à tous les mensonges dont s’accompagne sans doute ce retour. Mais bientôt, tandis que Rafe lui jure qu’il n’a jamais cessé de l’aimer et que, pour des raisons qu’il ne peut divulguer, il a dû simuler sa noyade, Trish sent la peur monter en elle. Car elle vient de comprendre que Rafe est revenu pour la protéger, et que l’agression dont elle a récemment été victime n’était qu’un piège destiné à le faire sortir de la clandestinité...

From New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas comes the first book in a compelling, emotionally resonant series set in a remote west Texas town—where family can be made by blood or by choice Rancher Staten Kirkland, the last descendant of Ransom Canyon's founding father, is rugged and practical to the last. No one knows that when his troubling memories threaten to overwhelm him, he runs to lovely, reclusive Quinn O'Grady…or that she has her own secret that no one living knows. Young Lucas Reyes has his eye on the prize—college, and the chance to become something more than a ranch hand's son. But one night, one wrong decision, will set his life on a course even he hadn't imagined. Yancy Grey is running hard from his troubled past. He doesn't plan to stick around Ransom Canyon, just long enough to learn the town's weaknesses and how to use them for personal gain. Only Yancy, a common criminal since he was old enough to reach a car's pedals, isn't prepared for what he encounters. In this dramatic new series, the lives, loves and ambitions of four families will converge, set against a landscape that can be as unforgiving as it is beautiful, where passion, property and pride are worth fighting—and even dying—for.

In the last hours of Halloween he has returned to the dying town of Elm Haven, his boyhood home, where he hopes to find peace in isolation.

Because Dale is not alone here. He has been followed to this house of shadows by private demons who are now twisting his reality into horrifying new forms.

This revised, updated second edition provides an accessible, practical overview of major areas of technical development and clinical application in the field of neurorehabilitation movement therapy. The initial section provides a rationale for technology application in movement therapy by summarizing recent findings in neuroplasticity and motor learning. The following section then explains the state of the art in human-machine interaction requirements for clinical rehabilitation practice. Subsequent sections describe the ongoing revolution in robotic therapy for upper extremity movement and for walking, and then describe other emerging technologies including electrical stimulation, virtual reality, wearable sensors, and brain-computer interfaces. The promises and limitations of these technologies in neurorehabilitation are discussed. Throughout the book the chapters provide detailed practical information on state-of-the-art clinical applications of these devices following stroke, spinal cord injury, and other neurologic disorders. The text is illustrated throughout with photographs and schematic diagrams which serve to clarify the information for the reader. Neurorehabilitation Technology, Second Edition is a valuable resource for neurologists, biomedical engineers, roboticists, rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and those training in these fields.
