Passion, suspense, mensonges, émotions… Lorsque Ben se retrouve en une des journaux après un énième scandale, c’est la frasque de trop. Son père, furieux, pose un ultimatum au milliardaire : il va devoir se ranger et se marier, ou il n’héritera pas de la société familiale. Le jeune homme décide de relever le défi, mais à sa manière. Et quelle meilleure provocation que de choisir Selena, strip-teaseuse sensuelle et mystérieuse, qui est l’exacte opposée des femmes que son père aimerait le voir épouser ? Sauf que Selena n’a pas de temps à perdre pour des caprices : mère célibataire, fuyant un passé douloureux, elle élève seule son fils atteint d'une maladie grave et peine à faire face aux factures médicales. Elle n’accepte la proposition de Ben qu’à deux conditions : il l’aide avec le traitement de son fils, et leur mariage reste platonique. Mais peu à peu, les barrières et les masques tombent, et le désir s’en mêle… Découvrez Love Naked, de Laurie Eschard, sa première romance aux éditions Addictives. *** Une nouvelle blonde entre en scène et s’approche déjà de la barre dans une démarche langoureuse. Elle porte un petit ensemble porte-jarretelles violet avec de la dentelle noire. Elle commence à bouger au rythme de la musique, tournant autour de cette barre. Mes yeux ne cessent de la fixer. Elle bouge bien et, comparée aux autres danseuses, elle n’est pas vulgaire. Elle est sexy et drôlement souple. Son visage passe alors dans le rayon de lumière d’un projecteur. Je souris en voyant son visage parfait. Quand je prends conscience que je ne fixe que ses grands yeux noirs, mon regard descend sur sa bouche pulpeuse. J’en frémis d'excitation. Ses lèvres doivent avoir un goût divin, et je me demande ce qu’elles feraient autour de ma queue. Mon entrejambe commence sérieusement à me serrer. Je descends encore plus mon regard. Son cou semble confortable et je m’y blottirais bien rien que pour sentir son parfum que j’imagine sensuel et agréable. En bon mec que je suis, mes yeux se posent sur une poitrine ferme. Ni trop grosse, ni trop petite. Juste parfaite. Et on devine tout de suite que c’est naturel. Elle tourne toujours autour de sa barre, prenant des positions de plus en plus équivoques. Je me mets à envier cette barre. J’aimerais avoir la chance d’être entre ses deux cuisses moi aussi. Elle relâche la barre et, dans une pose très sexy, elle passe ses deux mains dans son dos. *** Love Naked, de Laurie Eschard, histoire intégrale.

We live in a world of the fake, formulated, and fabricated—and it’s nothing to celebrate. J. Adam Lowe, a social scientist, radio commentator, and author says finding truth begins with being truthful with ourselves. He sheds lights on the world’s falsities and answers: • What does “nakedness” mean and why is it important? • Why are so many people afraid to uncover their true selves? • What if we do not like who we are? • Who told us that our true, naked state was not enough? Lowe does not make declarations of truth. But he does argue we are too fixated on debating what truth is given that we have not established its importance or a method of discovery. In short, we can’t argue over truth until we commit and submit to its collective importance. We must shed the falsities that the world demands. We must confront the most embarrassing parts of who we are and align them with what we should and could be. Only then can we set our sights on the Naked True.

Physician, anthropologist, travel writer, novelist, politician, Paolo Mantegazza (1831-1910) was probably the most eclectic figure in late-nineteenth century Italian culture. A prolific writer, Mantegazza can be seen as a forerunner of what has come to be known as cultural studies on account of his interdisciplinary approach, his passionate blend of scientific and literary elements in his writings, and his ability to transcend the boundaries between 'high' and 'low' culture. Though extremely popular during his lifetime both in Italy and abroad, Mantegazza's works have not been made available in a significant English language compilation. This volume is a representative overview of Mantegazza's key works, many of them translated into English for the first time. In addition to the unabridged Physiology of Love (1873), a veritable best-seller at the time of its initial publication, this compilation features selections from Mantegazza's writings on medicine, his travelogues, his epistolary novel One Day in Madeira (1868), and his treatise on materialistic aesthetics. Replete with an extensive and informative introduction by the editor, The Physiology of Love and Other Writings also excerpts Mantegazza's works of science fiction, memoir, and social and cultural criticism. As an anthology of the works of Paolo Mantegazza, a writer of diverse topical orientations, this volume is also an account of the circulation of ideas and cross-fertilization of disciplines that defined a crucial period of Italian and European cultural life.

One of the most important and original thinkers of the twentieth century, Jacques Ellul (1912–1994) was a noted sociologist, historian, law professor, and self-described “Christian anarchist.” At the University of Bordeaux, Ellul taught and wrote extensively on the relationship between technology and contemporary culture, the tenets of the Christian faith, and the principles of human freedom and responsibility. On Freedom, Love, and Power is the transcription of a series of talks given by Ellul in 1974 in which he refines and clarifies some of his most controversial insights on the Jewish and Christian Bibles and their relevance to contemporary society. This expanded edition of Ellul’s talks features additional material, previously unavailable, that focuses on Christianity’s potential service to humanity as a community that exemplifies a society where people are reconciled with one another and with God.

"This series is NOTHING, absolutely nothing of what I expected and absolutely EVERYTHING I wanted. Contemporary, paranormal fantasy with sparkly flecks of Nancy Drew, Murder She Wrote, Ripper Street, Penny Dreadful – topped with freshly squeezed comedic romance, super stinky road trips, ex-husband smackdowns, sufficient cat lady llama drama, and liberally laced with smoking hot, steamy (cover your eyes with generous peeking room) sexcapades. — Whiskey & Wit Book Reviews It’s bad enough that the world’s most powerful vampires are following gallery assistant Hanna Harvey like a cloud of undead mosquitos. But finding one of their heads in the trunk of her Mustang? There’s not enough cheese in the world to unsee that. Her stud-muffin alpha werewolf boss, Mark Abernathy suspects that someone stashing vampy bits in Hanna’s immediate vicinity is part of a plot to set-off an inter-species war…with Hanna’s own destiny at its heart. Getting to the bottom of Hanna’s headless guests will mean fending off the dogged investigation of Detective James Morrison—now suspended from the force and hell-bent on exposing the secrets that could not only destroy Abernathy, but everyone he’s sworn to protect.

Love Chameleon is an anthology of contrarian poems penned over 20 years wherein the poet uses the metaphor of the Chameleon to elucidate the complex themes of love, lust, loss, longing, sexuality and outdated social mores. The book is paradoxical in that it blends several contradictory elements to make a powerful whole it is at once intrepidly bold and sensual, movingly sensitive and absurdly hilarious. The poems are further multi-layered in that they exist at the level of words but also convey higher meaning at another, more metaphysical level. In the end, the book truly captivates by its sheer candidness matched in equal measure with a witty and vibrant play of words.

RISING MAGNIFICENTLY in the wilderness of Western Tibet, Mount Kailash is one of three sacred mountains in Tibet. Its shape is unmistakable: a symmetrical cone marked with striations and graced with perpetual snows. Four rivers emanate from it, nourishing the entire region. Mount Kailash is the center of the spiritual universe. It is sacred to four religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Bön, and Jainism. For Hindus, it is the home of Shiva. All of these statements are true of this magnificent mountain, but the truest is what my teacher said to me before I left to do prostrations around Mt. Kailash: “The center of the spiritual universe already exists in your human heart. Meet your mirror.”

What if you awoke one morning and everything was different? What if your path collided with that of a man you had known for lifetimes, a man you had loved for lifetimes—a forever love? What if reincarnation and past life traumas ran like a movie before your open eyes, and what if all this happened when you were an ordinary person—a wife and mother like Nancy? Forever Love answers the questions why some people, meeting for the first time, feel they have known each other before and why some people have inexplicable phobias and problems. “Forever Love is very timely. As we move more and more deeply into the evolution of human consciousness, more and more people are experiencing spontaneous past life recalls.

Borrowing disparate ideas and modes ranging from self-censorship and identity performance, lyric poetry and phenomenology, Cheuk reverse-engineers the parlance of postmodernism in search of the primal motivation behind expression, all the while asking the question: is a lie a lie if the liar shows you how he lies?
