An emotional love story that follows the touch-and-go relationship of Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts. Their body art is hot. Their chemistry is even hotter. From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything. Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that. But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…

Palace car prince

a biography of George Mortimer Pullman

Palace Car Prince is the first book-length biography of George Pullman (1831-1897), an entrepreneur whose name became synonymous with the golden age of U.S. railroad travel in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In this impressively researched work, Liston Leyendecker portrays the transformation of a man of vision who ascended to prominence following the Civil War only to lose control of his empire in the face of a rapidly changing world of industrial and labor relations. An adventurous young man, Pullman ventured, westward to Chicago and Colorado from his upstate New York home, eventually leaving a successful store in the Colorado goldfields in 1863 to return to Chicago and form his Palace Car Company, the manufacturer of luxury sleeping cars. Though Pullman's hard work brought him the admiration, power, and wealth he sought, it also tired him and made him increasingly irascible. As the Palace Car Company prospered, Pullman--who initially was regarded as a "hands-on" manager--became removed from the company's daily affairs. He relied more and more on the advice of his brother Albert, and growing isolation continued throughout his career and extended into family matters. The results of Pullman's aloofness became particularly apparent when, during the railroad workers' strike of 1894, he was publicly vilified as the archetypal nineteenth-century robber baron for his stubborn refusal to negotiate with the suffering strikers.

Discrete-valued time series are common in practice, but methods for their analysis are not well-known. In recent years, methods have been developed which are specifically designed for the analysis of discrete-valued time series. Hidden Markov and Other Models for Discrete-Valued Time Series introduces a new, versatile, and computationally tractable class of models, the "hidden Markov" models. It presents a detailed account of these models, then applies them to data from a wide range of diverse subject areas, including medicine, climatology, and geophysics. This book will be invaluable to researchers and postgraduate and senior undergraduate students in statistics. Researchers and applied statisticians who analyze time series data in medicine, animal behavior, hydrology, and sociology will also find this information useful.
