In this riveting sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Maestra, femme fatale Judith Rashleigh once again leads readers into the mesmerizing and dangerous underworld of Europe’s glamorous elite. Since opening her own art gallery in Venice, Judith Rashleigh—now Elisabeth Teerlinc—can finally stop running. She’s got the paycheck, lifestyle, and wardrobe she always dreamed of, not to mention the interest of a Russian billionaire. But when a chance encounter in Ibiza leads to a corpse that is, for once, not her own doing, she finds her life is back on the line—and she’s more alone than ever. It seems Judith’s become involved with more than just one stolen painting, and there is someone else willing to kill for what’s theirs. From St. Moritz to Serbia, Judith again finds herself maneuvering the strange landscapes of wealth, but this time there’s far more than her reputation at stake. How far will Rage take Judith? Far enough to escape death? The second installment in an unforgettable trilogy, Domina is the next sexy, ruthless, and decadent thriller from mastermind L. S. Hilton, and an adventure that will push Judith further than even she imagined she could go. From the Hardcover edition.

When her ambition encounters hostile rejection in England, she sails to America, where she meets an eccentric doctor who takes her on as an apprentice.

The Women Who Made Imperial Rome

Author: Guy de la Bédoyère

Publisher: Yale University Press

ISBN: 0300240678

Category: History

Page: 384

View: 8973

A captivating popular history that shines a light on the notorious Julio-Claudian women who forged an empire†‹ Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero—these are the names history associates with the early Roman Empire. Yet, not a single one of these emperors was the blood son of his predecessor. In this captivating history, a prominent scholar of the era documents the Julio-Claudian women whose bloodline, ambition, and ruthlessness made it possible for the emperors’ line to continue. Eminent scholar Guy de la Bédoyère, author of Praetorian, asserts that the women behind the scenes—including Livia, Octavia, and the elder and younger Agrippina—were the true backbone of the dynasty. De la Bédoyère draws on the accounts of ancient Roman historians to revisit a familiar time from a completely fresh vantage point. Anyone who enjoys I, Claudius will be fascinated by this study of dynastic power and gender interplay in ancient Rome.

Domina Illustris

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135948135

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 348

View: 922

This cutting-edge collection of essays offers provocative studies of ancient history, literature, gender identifications and roles, and subsequent interpretations of the republican and imperial Roman past. The prose and poetry of Cicero and Petronius, Lucretius, Virgil, and Ovid receive fresh interpretations; pagan and Christian texts are re-examined from feminist and imaginative perspectives; genres of epic, didactic, and tragedy are re-examined; and subsequent uses and re-uses of the ancient heritage are probed with new attention: Shakespeare, Nineteenth Century American theater, and contemporary productions involving prisoners and veterans. Comprising nineteen essays collectively honoring the feminist Classical scholar Judith Hallett, this book will interest the Classical scholar, the ancient historian, the student of Reception Studies, and feminists interested in all periods. The authors from the United States, Britain, France and Switzerland are authorities in one or more of these fields and chapters range from the late Republic to the late Empire to the present.

Domina: Society's Ilk

ISBN: 0982811144

Page: 61

View: 9334

Domina: Society's Ilk is the story of a woman who refuses to be defined by those who can barely define themselves and rejects the dogged conventions of how she is supposed to be - levied by...yet based upon those who claim to be like her. It is the story of a superheroine who is capable of carrying an entire imprint as its franchise offering - so respected so as to garner the support of characters from an entirely different imprint for the purposes of ensuring her proper send-off into the universe. It is a story of last resorts, of sorts - in a pool of prose where the defiant metaphor which takes its plot seriously cannot be drowned. To Domina, none of this is anything new. She has always shouldered the ever increasing responsibilities of being a protector, the always welcome obligation of being a friend, and the treacherously important burden of being an entrepreneur. So why do her detractors continue to believe that they can win?

Grayson Locke Danforth, in his wildest of dreams, never expected two things. The first was to be recalled from India by Queen Victoria where he worked for the quiet purposes of the crown. He must now become the Duke of Warrick after the tragic deaths of his father and brothers. However, tragedy is entirely in the eyes of the beholder, and Grayson doesn't want the title, or to return to what remains of his family. Grayson wants to remain invisible, an outcast, a man in exile for the way his body and mind behave and the secrets he needs to keep.The second thing he never expected was to be forced into marriage to a woman from the twenty-first century. Lulu is no mere woman, however. She's a switch who works as a professional Dominatrix-at least, she did. When she wakes up in a strange house, a strange world, a strange body, she isn't quite sure what to think and is certain she's dreaming. She has less than a day to gain her bearings and make a decision that will dictate the rest of her life in this world-whether or not to marry this beautiful stranger. As Lulu and Grayson attempt to begin a life together, she discovers the true reason why this man is a stranger to his family. She can only hope she can persuade Grayson to accept who she is, and who he was born to be, before he forces her out of his life in order to maintain his well-kept secrets. Trust doesn't come easily to either of them, but it's the only thing they have. Grayson will have to give in to his need to submit in order to get his wife to open up and allow him to possess her fully in return. It's a cautious dance between two people who have never known how to trust, or love.THE BOOKS IN THE LORDS OF TIME SERIES: THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE : BOOK ONE in the Lords of Time SeriesAVAILABLE NOWTHE DUKE AND THE DOMINA : BOOK TWO in the Lords of Time SeriesAVAILABLE NOWTHE DUKE AND THE BARON : a Lords of Time companion novel AVAILABLE NOW

Field Theory Handbook

Including Coordinate Systems, Differential Equations and Their Solutions

Author: Parry Moon,Domina E. Spencer

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3642530605

Category: Mathematics

Page: 236

View: 8567

Let us first state exactly what this book is and what it is not. It is a compendium of equations for the physicist and the engineer working with electrostatics, magne tostatics, electric currents, electromagnetic fields, heat flow, gravitation, diffusion, optics, or acoustics. It tabulates the properties of 40 coordinate systems, states the Laplace and Helmholtz equations in each coordinate system, and gives the separation equations and their solutions. But it is not a textbook and it does not cover relativistic and quantum phenomena. The history of classical physics may be regarded as an interplay between two ideas, the concept of action-at-a-distance and the concept of a field. Newton's equation of universal gravitation, for instance, implies action-at-a-distance. The same form of equation was employed by COULOMB to express the force between charged particles. AMPERE and GAUSS extended this idea to the phenomenological action between currents. In 1867, LUDVIG LORENZ formulated electrodynamics as retarded action-at-a-distance. At almost the same time, MAXWELL presented the alternative formulation in terms of fields. In most cases, the field approach has shown itself to be the more powerful.

Buffalo Grove. The city happens to be under new protectorship, and thats the perfect time to test its latest champions mettle during the transition. Only, universal conflict tends to be unconcerned with such things and unimpressed by local quarrels. But home court does normally present an advantage for the host, and Denah Tress will need all of it when she returns to crime fighting form as her alter ego the real life superheroine, Domina. Every much the technical envisioning of nanite theory and cerebral telling of a BDSM tale (without the physical eroticism) from the first story, Domina 2: Blood Can Be Revoked addresses the worthiness of the woman who was handpicked to replace a Crimson Red Belt as Buffalo Groves and by extension, Earths protector.
