A dangerous predator escapes from prison near Red Rock, Texas—and Collin Jamison, CIA Special Operations, is the only person who can get inside the murderer's mind. There's just one thing clouding his concentration—Lucy Gatling. Beautiful, petite and a med student observer for the coroner's office, Lucy is all business. And she thinks she's got a lead. The police aren't biting, but Collin is—even if it's only to get closer to Lucy. Work turns into something special between Lucy and Collin, and she's convinced Collin is the real deal. But is it right to secretly give him information about the case? Or is it too late?

She Needed Him… Constance Price, aka Miss Manners, is at her wit's end. Thanks to less-than-stellar ratings on her daily radio show, her boss is demanding a turnaround—fast! And that means asking Garret Underwood—her biggest critic and past love—to join her. Whenever the navy SEAL calls in, her ratings skyrocket! There's no way Connie can ask him to help. Or can she? But Could She Keep Her Secret? Garret's in town only temporarily and is "willing" to give Connie a hand. As much as she needs him, Connie plans to keep him at an emotional distance. Keeping him away from her ten-year-old daughter, on the other hand, won't be easy. But how can she tell the man she once loved he's the father of her child?

In the Eyes of a Military Man by Shawn Lawson Anybody who serves in the military is considered a hero, a patriot. It is a profession held in high esteem in every corner of the world, especially in the United States. However, there are things in the military, particularly in the Army, that is anything but noble. Things that only a military man could see. Shawn Lawson, a young retiree from the US Army, candidly recounts his personal experiences as an enlisted man, from his training as a new recruit to his service in the different divisions of the Army within the different forts around the United States and overseas in Korea. He bluntly describes the realities and absurdities in the Army that are often ignored and how he dealt with it, while at same time facing stressful personal problems. Soldiers either talk about heroism or the better side of things and humorous tales, but not being a follower subject to some abuses by higher-ranking officers. This is what Lawson has chosen to expose. This is what happened to him. This is not to disrespect the whole US Army. About the Author Shawn Lawson was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He served in the United States Army, during which he was also stationed in South Korea. He now lives in Denver.

'The Dawn of a New Era', as some rejoiced, 'a printer's error in the history of mankind', as others loathed. From the day Czar Nicholas' Peace Rescript surprised a divided world, the First Hague Peace Conference has evoked irreconcilable responses. A predictable failure in the disarmament debate, a distinct leap ahead in curbing the Moloch of War, its lasting repute is linked to its brainchild, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the cradle of The Hague's present claim as self-imposed Juridical Capital of the World. By all accounts, this 'First Parliament of Man' opened the door to the International Era & man's ultimate dream, 'The Federation of the World'. The 1899 Hague Peace Conference pays tribute to this historical assembly. It deals comprehensively with the genesis, proceedings, & outcome of this first diplomatic encounter of its kind, in the political heart & royal residence of a small, yet ambitious nation. It details the substance matter of the Conference, to put a check on the armaments spiral, to restrain the evils & control the customs of war, & to provide for the peaceful settlement of disputes. Enlarging on the intense debate in committees large & small, the publication likewise echoes the splendour of the ceremonial sittings of the Plenary, that 'New Areopagus' gathered in the House in the Wood, itself the glorification of the Peace of Westphalia, its exotic drawing rooms & celebrated canvasses the pinnacle of arts & crafts of the Dutch Golden Age. On top of this, the work colourfully portrays to a man the full hundred delegates, politicians, diplomats, jurists, & military men, luminaries of the day most of them, & highlights some of their astounding addresses. It introduces the world of pacifists, led by Bloch, Stead, & Von Suttner, who gravitated in great numbers to the hotels of repute at the luxury seashore resort. In a wealth of anecdotes distilled from diaries, memoirs & magazines, this jubilee book pictures in gorgeous detail the splendid social entourage of royal receptions, public dinners & cultural excursions. Lavishly illustrated with scores of ravishing pictures it sketches The Hague of the Belle Epoque, the world of Mesdag & Couperus. Based on primary sources & in-depth research, this commemorative publication is an essentially multi-disciplined approach to a pivotal diplomatic venue, a sweeping legal debate, & a breath-taking social event. Arthur Eyffinger's book on the 1899 Hague Peace Conference was awarded the Certificate of Merit for High Technical Craftsmanship. The Committee stated: "The book was painstakingly researched & richly descriptive, reflecting archival research at its best. Eyffinger recreates the Hague Peace Conference for a contemporary audience, incorporating historical & political context & art, as well as the text of a wealth of original documents. Readers are genuinely transported back to another world, in a way that helps them better appreciate this one."
