The #1 New York Times Bestseller! A hot and hilarious new romantic comes from the author of smash hits MISTER O and BIG ROCK... I’ve been told I have quite a gift. Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing... Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place. Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says. Spoiler—neither one of us sleeps. Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too. What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

COMPLETE SERIES - 4 BOOKS IN 1! From award-winning author, Lori Sjoberg, comes four sexy Southern Alphas who always get their woman. This complete collection includes Driven, Fractured, Devoted, and Denied. Driven Kayla Phillips determined to keep her struggling family farm, but billionaire Mason Falco is resolved to buy the land out from under her. To save her home, Kayla makes a bet with Mason, but will the passion building between them change the odds? Fractured Carter Phillips has returned from multiple deployments, and he's brought a few demons home with him. War has left him scarred, inside and out, and he's counting on the peace and isolation of his family's farm to keep his head screwed on straight. What he doesn't bargain for is Amy Williams, the new horse trainer. She's kinder than he deserves, tougher than he expects, with a hidden core of vulnerability that triggers his need to possess and protect her. Amy has finally pieced her life back together, after being forced to give up everything and assume a new identity. Now she's safe, no longer the target of accusations and death threats—but she's also alone. The only danger to her secrets and her celibacy is Carter, smoking-hot former Marine—and her boss's brother. With each passing day, she finds it harder to lie to him about who she is—and who she wants. Neither of them wants to talk about the past, but the more time they spend together, the closer they become. When the truth comes out, will it set them free or tear them apart forever? Devoted Ethan Riggs is in love with a woman he can’t have, and it’s driving him out of his mind. She’s his best friend’s secret crush and his adopted family’s adored baby sister, which locks her in the look-but-don’t-touch category. It was easy to deny his attraction while she was away at veterinary school. But now that she’s back, the temptation’s growing stronger, and a man can only resist for so long before he finally claims what he wants. Doctor Louise Phillips doesn’t have time for a man. Between her work at the animal hospital and helping her sister on the family farm, she barely has time for sleep. But when a rare night out turns into an evening in the slammer, it’s Ethan she calls for help. He’s a great guy—and seriously hot—but he’s never shown any interest in her beyond friendship. But now that he’s agreed to help her beat the charges, working closely with him is giving her ideas. Sexy, sweaty ideas. But Ethan has secrets buried deep in his past, and he hates the thought of Louise looking at him with pity—or worse, disappointment. Unfortunately, secrets have a nasty habit of coming out when they’re least expected. When Louise learns the truth, will she stand by her man or kick him to the curb? Denied Shane Falco has it all: looks, money, power, and more women than he knows what to do with. The last thing he wants is to settle down and start a family, so imagine his surprise when he meets a little girl with eyes that are just like his. Larissa LeClaire is reminded of Shane every time she looks at her daughter. He’s the very last person she wants to see again, even though she can’t forget the way he totally rocked her world. He snuck out of her bed without so much as a goodbye, and she doesn’t have time in her busy life for a man she can’t count on. Shane’s determined to be the kind of father he never had, even though the girl’s hot-blooded mother doesn’t want anything to do with him. Yet as they agree to a truce for the sake of their daughter, it’s hard to ignore the explosive chemistry between them. But when a figure from the past comes back to haunt them, will it tear them apart or bring them closer together? **Fun and sexy contemporary romance. Fall in love with the Southern Alphas today!**

The Simulation Of Thermomechanically Induced Stress In Plastic Encapsulated Ic Packages

This book is motivated by the need to understand and predict the complex stress distributions, transfer mechanisms, warpage, and potential failures arising from the encapsulation of devices in plastic. Failures like delaminations, package cracking, and metal shift occur due to the build-up of residual stress and warpage in the packages because of the TCE mismatch between the package materials as the package cools from its molding temperature to room temperature. The correct use of finite element tools for these problems is emphasised. F.E. techniques are used to predict the internal package stress distribution and help explain the stress transfer mechanism between the die, die paddle, and plastic after molding. Out-of-plane shear stress components are shown to be responsible for experimentally observed metal shift patterns on the die surface. Delaminations dramatically alter the internal stress state within a package, increasing the tensile stress in the plastic and so the likelihood of plastic cracks, the stress on wire bonds, and the incidence of wire bond failure. The application of F.E. techniques to predict the post-mold warpage of both thermally enhanced PQFPs and TQFPs is described. Simulations of a thermally enhanced PQFP warpage based on standard modelling assumptions alone fail to predict either the magnitude or its direction correctly. The modelling assumptions need to be modified to include the chemical shrinkage of the molding compound to enable accurate predictions of package warpage to be made, particularly when the packages are asymmetric in structure. Microsystem packaging in both plastic and 3D package body styles is reviewed. Although microsystem packaging is derived from IC packaging, additional requirements for microsystems, not common to IC packaging are highlighted. The assembly stresses on a novel microsystem, incorporating a micromachined silicon membrane pump integrated into a 3D plastic encapsulated vertical multichip module package (MCM-V), are analysed.

Taking into account both traditional and emerging modes, this comprehensive new Handbook covers all major methodological and statistical issues in designing and analyzing surveys. With contributions from the world's leading survey methodologists and statisticians, this invaluable new resource provides guidance on collecting survey data and creating meaningful results. Featuring examples from a variety of countries, the book reviews such things as how to deal with sample designs, write survey questions, and collect data on the Internet. A thorough review of the procedures associated with multiple modes of collecting sample survey information and applying that combination of methods that fit the situation best is included. The International Handbook of Survey Methodology opens with the foundations of survey design, ranging from sources of error, to ethical issues. This is followed by a section on design that reviews sampling challenges and tips on writing and testing questions for multiple methods. Part three focuses on data collection, from face-to-face interviews, to Internet and interactive voice response, to special challenges involved in mixing these modes within one survey. Analyzing data from both simple and complex surveys is then explored, as well as procedures for adjusting data. The book concludes with a discussion of maintaining quality. Intended for advanced students and researchers in the behavioral, social, and health sciences, this "must have" resource will appeal to those interested in conducting or using survey data from anywhere in the world, especially those interested in comparing results across countries. The book also serves as a state-of-the-art text for graduate level courses and seminars on survey methodology. A companion website contains additional readings and examples.

This volume presents state of the art discussions on a wide variety of topics in the field of (agricultural) development. More than 20 chapters have been prepared by internationally known scholars and policy analysts, providing a concise overview of a variety of recent debates in development economics While the background of most contributors is in economic science, the chapters are prepared so that they feed into ongoing policy discussions and are accessible to a wide readership.The contributions in this volume are organized around five themes: prospects for rural poverty alleviation, sustainable management of natural resources, strategies for enhancing food security, markets and the role of the state, and institutions and governance. It is obvious there exists many linkages between these themes, and indeed the integration between them is emphasized in various chapters.This book is prepared as a festschrift or Liber Amoricum for professor Arie Kuyvenhoven. His retirement from the Development Economics Group at Wageningen University (The Netherlands) is a good opportunity to take stock of recent developments in the area of agricultural development economics. Therefore, in addition to being a valuable source of information for readers with an interest in development, this volume is also intended as a farewell gift: to Arie, from friends and colleagues.
