“I Claim, I Hold.” No one keeps the Clan Gunn motto closer to his heart than its war chief, Jamie Gunn. Willing to keep the tenuous peace between clans by any means necessary, he would lay down his life for his family. So when word arrives that his aunt Ailis has been kidnapped for hiding a woman in her abbey, he takes to his steed at once. Lady Gilliane de Verrill came to the abbey seeking refuge from Guy de Orbrec, the cruel Norman despot who stole her hand in marriage on her father’s deathbed. When her only source of protection turns away Orbrec’s men and is kidnapped, Lady Gilliane knows there is only one thing she can do. Bearing responsibility for Ailis’ life on her shoulders, she rides off to seek help, with Orbrec’s men hot on her heels. When the two meet by chance in the woods, they encounter in each others eyes more danger than even Guy de Orbrec could provide. Will Jamie, struck by the beauty and kindness of this mysterious woman responsible for his aunt’s disappearance, risk his all for someone he barely knows? Can Lady Gilliane, taken by this hero seemingly lifted directly from her father’s fairy tales, look past his wild nature to the gentle man within? With a life on the line and Gilliane’s freedom at stake, their blossoming love could be their very destruction.

In Kat Martin's Silk and Steel, Lady Kathryn Grayson is a gently bred noblewoman with a privileged future ahead of her...until her greedy uncle decides to steal her fortune by committing her to an insane asylum. Her only escape is to stow away in the carriage of Lucien Montaine, Marquess of Litchfield, who hears her story with disbelief and suspicion. Yet Kathryn's instincts tell her Lord Litchfield is a man of honor--and her only salvation. Desperate to save herself, she attempts to seduce him and forces him into marriage. The moment Lucien encounters the ragged, hungry waif with the dignity of a queen, he fights against wanting her. Though captivated by her intellect, strong will, and beauty, he will never love the woman who has deceived him. Though their battle of wills grows stronger every day, desire threatens to overpower his fury. Can this maddening woman who is now his bride melt his heart of steel? Or will her silken touch only strengthen his vow never to fall prey to the dangers of love?

This book consists of profiles of 200 men and women. Syria has led the Arab World in many ways for the past 100 years. It was the headquarters of the Arab nationalist movement in the 1910s and leader of women's emancipation in the 1920s. It was among the first Arab countries to achieve independence from colonial rule in 1946, and among the region's earliest and healthiest democracies in the 1950s. From this point on, Syria produced an array of leading poets, writers, and painters. In the 1970s, Syria was the first Arab country to appoint women as judges, parliamentary deputies, ministers, and ambassadors. Meet the nationalists who led the independence struggle in Syria. Meet the politicians who maneuvered its politics into becoming a central power-broker in the Middle East. Meet the poets, the painters and thinkers as well as the diplomats, journalists, and civil servants. Meet the women and men who shaped 20th century Syria. This book includes a workshop for journalists and researchers that includes an annotated timeline of 20th Century Syria, facts on Syria, and brief bios of the current leadership.

This is the tale of a city - like any other city, to begin with - and how it was lost and won, and lost again. This is the tale of an unusual army and its extraordinary leaders: Rem, the librarian, whose tears are ink; wise Gursoon, who defines their conscience; and the silver-tongued thief, Anwar Das, who knows when to ignore that conscience. And it is the tale of the mysterious Zuleika, with her unexpected gift for violence. Without her, the city could not have been taken; because of her, it could not be held. Most of all, this is the tale of Bessa, the city of silk and steel, as much legend as truth: its fate will haunt you for as long as stories are told ...
