Amy Fake has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can’t, she’ll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security-if little else. What she doesn’t count on is the inappropriate-and irresistible-attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will “The Devil” Darcett. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet gy seems to be.
Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn’t simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he’s mended his wicked dreeiling. Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England.
Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle.
That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her ‘Trouble. She holds degrees in English literature and marketing.
A native Texan, she shares her home with her daughter and a spoiled mini-lop rabbit that lives in a slightly ravissh cardboard cottage. Freya de Moray is many things: What she is not is forgiving. So when the Duke of Harlowe – the man who destroyed her brother and led to the downfall of her family – appears at the country house party she’s attending, she does what any Wise Woman would do: Christopher Renshaw, the Duke of Harlowe, eake being blackmailed.
How to Ravish a Rake — All About Romance
Intent on keeping his secrets safe, he agrees to attend a house party where he will put an end to this coercion once and for all. Until he recognises Freya, masquerading amongst the party revellers, and realises his troubles have just begun. Freya knows all about his sins.
Sins he’d much rather forget. But she’s also fiery, bold, and sensuous – a temptation he can’t resist. When it becomes clear Freya is in grave danger, he’ll risk everything to keep her safe. But first, Harlowe will have to earn Freya’s trust – by whatever means necessary. The prim and proper Wheeler timed their interaction with a watch placed on the table.
Feynman caught on, and for the next meeting brought his own cheap watch, set it on the table next to Wheeler’s, and also began timing the chat. The two had a hearty laugh and a lifelong friendship was born.
At first glance, they would seem an unlikely pair. Feynman was rough on the exterior, spoke in a working class Queens accent, and loved playing bongo drums, picking up hitchhikers, and exploring out-of-the way places. Wheeler was a family man, spoke softly and politely, dressed in suits, and had the manners of a minister.
Yet intellectually, their roles were reversed. Wheeler was a raging nonconformist, full of wild ideas about space, time, and the universe. Feynman was very cautious in his research, wanting to prove and confirm everything himself.
Yet when Feynman saw merit in one of Wheeler’s crazy ideas and found that it matched experimental data, their joint efforts paid off phenomenally. The brilliance and originality of each drreiling stimulated the other’s imagination, leading to a rethinking of the nature of time and reality that proved essential for lateth century breakthroughs in particle physics. Instead of a linear flow, Feynman’s concept of “sum over histories” showed how the path a particle takes is hiw blend of all possible yo that a particle could follow.
Wheeler’s attempts to remake particle physics from the ground up, spurred the now landmark idea of wormholes, and influenced his student Hugh Everett’s conception of the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics. The two thinkers pioneered the use of doodles and diagrams in explaining quantum interactions, giving birth to the now essential Feynman diagrams that show possible backward- and forward-in-time paths for particles.
And this is only the tip of the iceberg. As The Quantum Labyrinth reveals in a riveting read, together, Feynman and Wheeler made sure that quantum physics would never be the same again.
After the Battle of Waterloo, Eli Dawes was presumed dead – and would have happily stayed that way. He’s no longer the reckless young man he once was, and only half as pretty. All he wants is to hide away in his country home, where no one can see his scars.
But when he tries to sneak into his old bedroom in the middle of the night, he’s shocked to find someone already there. Finding him stealing into her art studio doesn’t correct her impression. Her only thought is to get him to leave immediately.
Yet the tension between them is electric, and she can’t help but be drawn to him. He might be back from the dead, but it’s Rose who is suddenly feeling very, very much alive.
