New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick returns with a thrilling new venture into romance and mystery, featuring the most unusual, highly compatible--undeniably combustible--pairing of Tobias March and his mesmerizing partner, Lavinia Lake. An invitation to a country house party at Beaumont Castle provides a perfect solution to Tobias and Lavinia’s most exasperating challenge: how to escape the chaos of London for a remote, relaxing--and above all romantic--retreat from prying eyes and wagging tongues. But the lovers’ plans are foiled when their first cozy interlude of the weekend is disrupted by the appearance of a stunning woman from Tobias’s past. Aspasia Gray’s beauty is as haunting as her connection to Tobias. Her long-deceased fiancé was a friend of his--in addition to being an eccentric assassin. The mysterious nature of the bond between Tobias and Aspasia makes Lavinia more than a little uncomfortable. Especially as her first encounter with Aspasia occurs when she finds her in Tobias’s bedchamber... It seems Aspasia is seeking protection--and solace--after receiving an ominous message that eerily recalls the past. Suddenly the obstacles standing betweenTobias and Lavinia appear greater than just a little London gossip--and far more deadly.When events at the castle suggest someone is imitating the dead killer’s methods, the team of Lake and March fervently pursue the investigation--and each other--as their leads take them from Society’s most elegant haunts--and most discreet hideaways--to London’s shadiest backstreets. As their relationship heats up, so does the intrigue. Soon Lavinia will have to employ all her talents to flummox the scoundrel who so rudely interrupted her rendezvous. And then she and Tobias can get back to more pleasurable affairs.

A modern day love story about a couple named Zeke and Legs. Zeke sprung from a world filled with danger and secrets. He was raised by two parents that instilled strong moral values in him. Zeke instead began to favor the excitement of the street life. Legs, on the other hand, was a stunning beauty from a loving family that fell victim to the negative trappings of urban life. Their paths crossed as they were beginning to live a normal life. Legs and Zeke fell madly in love in only a short time. Their lust and desire for each became a priority. They decided to marry when a child was on the way. This began the drama that was their life. Keep an open mind as you relive their lives.The story is written with truth and detailed accounts of the many events that took place. They both found God and sought redemption through Jesus the Christ. Don't let the discomfort of their acts deter you from reading their entire story. Remember; they had to live through it too! The real heroes of the story are God and Christ; consequently, without the resurrecting power of the almighty their lives may have remained lost. I suggest you keep a Bible close by; just as I did while writing the story.
The Origin of Macroeconomics

Categories: Business & Economics
Type: BOOK - Published: 2018-05-09 - Publisher: Caligrama

The true origin of macroeconomics. This book details an unprecedented finding in the history of economic thought: the true origin of macroeconomics. This occurred in Spain with the researcher Germán Bernácer (Alicante 1883-1965) and his first book: Sociedad y Felicidad. Un Ensayo de Mecánica Social (Society and Happiness. An Essay on Social Mechanics), published in 1916. Twenty years before the publication of The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (1936) by Keynes, Bernácer established the fundamental pillars of macroeconomics. Some of these works came to the attention of Professor Robertson in Cambridge where Keynes worked. Villacís demonstrates the invalidity of the fundamental equation of macroeconomics: savings equal to investment. This book discusses the epistolary relationship of the author, José Villacís, with Professor Robert M. Solow.
