Who knew lies and billionaires were an explosive combination? Kendra has scrimped and saved to care for her ailing father and to keep bailing out a sister who can't seem to get her life in order. When Kendra is moved to Dubai and into a job at the illustrious Totally Five Star Hotel, she can't afford to let anything ruin it. So when a celebrity whom Kendra closely resembles doesn't show up for a big charity event and Kendra is recruited to take her place, she can't say no. After all, everything has been set up so that her deception won't be exposed... Only, no one could have predicted that rival billionaires Nikos and Dmitri would be at the event, willing to bid astronomical sums to win the dinner prize-time with Kendra. Or that the chemistry between her and the men would be so explosive... Overwhelmed and completely out of her depth, Kendra finds herself drawn to both powerful, enigmatic men, and they seem just as taken with her. But what will Nikos and Dmitri do when they find out the truth?

“A definitive guide to astronomy’s hottest field.” —The Economist Since its formation nearly five billion years ago, our planet has been the sole living world in a vast and silent universe. But over the past two decades, astronomers have discovered thousands of “exoplanets,” including some that could be similar to our own world, and the pace of discovery is accelerating. In a fascinating account of this unfolding revolution, Lee Billings draws on interviews with the world’s top experts in the search for life beyond earth. He reveals how the search for exoplanets is not only a scientific challenge, but also a reflection of our culture’s timeless hopes, dreams, and fears.

Sport and the Color Line

The year 2003 marks the one-hundredth anniversary of W.E.B. Du Bois' "Souls of Black Folk," in which he declared that "the color line" would be the problem of the twentieth century. Half a century later, Jackie Robinson would display his remarkable athletic skills in "baseball's great experiment." Now, "Sport and the Color Line" takes a look at the last century through the lens of sports and race, drawing together articles by many of the leading figures in Sport Studies to address the African American experience and the history of race relations. The history of African Americans in sport is not simple, and it certainly did not begin in 1947 when Jackie Robinson first donned a Brooklyn Dodgers uniform. The essays presented here examine the complexity of black American sports culture, from the organization of semi-pro baseball and athletic programs at historically black colleges and universities, to the careers of individual stars such as Jack Johnson and Joe Louis, to the challenges faced by black women in sports. What are today's black athletes doing in the aftermath of desegregation, or with the legacy of Muhammad Ali's political stance? The essays gathered here engage such issues, as well as the paradoxes of corporate sport and the persistence of scientific racism in the athletic realm.

For Daisy Dooley, the only thing worse than being 39 and single is being 39 and divorced. A self-professed self-help addict, Daisy leaves the marriage she thought would forever rescue her from the angst of will he or won't he call, coping with painful setups from well-meaning friends, and lonely Saturday nights, only to return to the painful--and painfully funny--world of dating. Supported by her two best friends, one commitment-phobic single serial dater and one picture perfect happy wife and mother of two whose marriage sets the standard in happy marriages--at least from the outside--Daisy must find her way back through the awkward mating rituals that accompany relationships with the post-divorcee rebound man, and the passionate tweny-something eager to date a "mature woman," and battle the longing to be with the one true love who eluded her years before. In the end, Daisy Dooley does date who she deserves, and delivers a lot of laughs and lessons along the way.
