1264 A.D. - Davyss de Winter is the champion for King Henry III, a powerful and arrogant man that descends from a long line of powerful knights. He is also a much-sought after man and has had more than his share of female admirers, including a besotted baron's daughter who bore him bastard twins.His mother and family matriarch, the Lady Katharine de Warrenne de Winter, loses patience with her son's behavior and betrothes him to a woman she hopes will tame his wild ways. She selects a young woman from a lesser noble family with no political ties or ambitions, a perfect match for her son's prideful personality. Enter the Lady Devereux d'Arcy Allington; a young woman of astounding beauty, she wants nothing to do with Davyss. When Davyss, in protest of the marriage, sends his sword Lespada to the marriage ceremony, Devereux is beyond offended. Livid, she battles tooth and nail, refusing to marry a sword by proxy, until Lady Katharine intervenes. Cornered, Devereux is forced to marry Lespada because her groom refuses to show up for the ceremony. When Davyss gives in to his curiosity and meets his wife for the first time, he is overwhelmed with her beauty. Roughly consummating the marriage, he has set the tone for what both Davyss and Devereux believe will be a loveless, hateful marriage. But when Davyss begins to realize what he's done, he swallows his considerable pride and is determined to get to know the woman he married, a woman of grace and compassion like nothing he has ever known before. Though trials and tribulations, Davyss and Devereux's bond only strengthens. When Davyss is involved in the Battle of Evesham against Simon de Montfort, Devereux faces her own life and death situation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Campbell.

A man eager to make his fortune... A godfather who initiates a dangerous psychological game... An extraordinary proposition, one of discovery, pleasure - and pain. When Richard Fenwick, a young man without family or means, returns to London from a Grand Tour of Europe in 1761, his godfather, James Gilbert, has an unexpected proposition. Gilbert has led a sedate life in the country, but now, in his advancing years, he feels the urge to experience, if vicariously, the extremes of human feeling - love and passion, in particular - along with something much more sinister. He asks Richard to serve as his proxy and to write to him of his city adventures, and his ward believes he has no option but to accept. It quickly becomes clear that Gilbert desires correspondence of a titillating nature - tales of carousal, seduction, and excess - and so Richard begins to write of London's more salacious side. For here is an invitation to hedonism and Richard, eager to taste all that a privileged life has to offer, rises to the challenge. But Gilbert's elaborate and manipulative "experiments" into the most intimate workings of human behavior soon drag Richard into a vortex of betrayal, where lives may be ruined and tragedy is only a step away. And when Richard does the unthinkable and falls in love, the stakes are raised and he must make a defining choice. But what sort of man has he by now become? A chilling and deliciously dark tale of manipulation, sex, and seduction, The Skull and the Nightingale combines the intoxication of Perfume, the sensuality of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and the exquisite detail of The Crimson Petal and the White. This entrancing novel seduces the senses, bringing vividly to life the heady swirl of eighteenth-century London while exploring the darkest passions and instincts that animate us all. 1.

This book provides strong empirical evidences that support the Hotelling model of the exploitation of nonrenewable natural resources. It consists of three chapters addressing issues related to the behavior of the in-situ price, market price and the optimal extraction rate of nonrenewable natural resources. Exploiting the theoretical Hotelling model with technological progress and stock effect, the first chapter develops an empirical framework to estimate and evaluate the in-situ price of nonrenewable natural resources using average extraction cost data as proxy for marginal cost. The Second chapter estimates an empirical switching Hotelling model to test for linearity in their stock of the optimal extraction rates of nonrenewable natural resources. The last chapter takes a capital asset pricing approach to the determination of the price of a nonrenewable natural resource in the case where the resource is durable, in the sense that once extracted it becomes a productive asset held above ground.
In the last few decades, children adopted fromRomania, some of whom were institutionalized, havebeen touted as examples of how deprivation can affectattachment. Attachment Theory has often beenutilized to explain difficult behaviors. However,measuring attachment has often proven to bechallenging, as most measures have been developed foryoung children. This study presents the findings of secondary dataanalysis from survey data of American adoptiveparents of Romanian children. Scores from thesubscales of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) wereused as a proxy for attachment difficulties. Twohundred and thirty-two cases were analyzed to detectchanges in behaviors over time, controlling forvariables such as institutionalization and parentdemographics. Additionally, the CBCL scores werecompared to clinical and non-clinical norms. Recommendations for research, practice and policycentered on the development of more precise measuresfor research, education for parents whointernationally adopt and advocacy for the continuityof post-adoption assistance for families.
