A daring beauty will risk everything for love in this thrilling romance in Joanna Bourne's Spymaster series. Raised as a poor but cunning pickpocket, Jess Whitby may have grown into a wealthy young woman, but now she must rely once again on her guile. Her father’s been wrongly accused of selling secrets to Napoleon, and he’s going to hang—unless Jess finds the real traitor in the London underworld. She never dreamed her search would begin by waking up naked in the bed of a rude merchant captain. Or how little she’d mind… When Captain Sebastian Kennett averts a kidnapping on the London docks, he takes the headstrong would-be victim home. He’s infatuated with her courageous spirit. She’s enthralled by his commanding strength and the sexy spark in his eyes. Then she discovers something else about the spellbinding seaman: He could be the traitor she’s hunting, the man whose next move could determine her father’s fate—and her future as well. From the Paperback edition.

Ich werde Ihnen genau erklären, wie die Medien heute WIRKLICH funktionieren. Was Sie dann mit diesem Wissen anfangen, das überlasse ich ganz Ihnen

It was relatively common in the days before mass relocation to find solitary Asian traders living and conducting business in the heart of white rural communities. Isolated because of their racial and cultural differences, they built walls around themselves - surviving like bits of flotsam in the hostile sea, practising their religion and conducting their daily routine as inconspicuously as possible.' Sisters Yasmin and Meena, their parents and grandmother are among those who live behind the walls, helpless to control their destinies in the arid years of apartheid, but not entirely without hope...Yasmin's strivings bring her some of what she wants in life, but not without tragedy compounded by long-concealed secrets that seem to be passed from other to daughter. In this sensitively written novel Farida Karodia explores the complex relationships between mothers and daughters and the peripheral role of principled, hard-working father whose only fault is his futile optimism.

What is black music? For some it is a unique expression of the African-American experience, its soulful vocals and stirring rhythms forged in the fires of black resistance in response to centuries of oppression. But as Ronald Radano argues in this bracing work, the whole idea of black music has a much longer and more complicated history-one that speaks as much of musical and racial integration as it does of separation.
