Christina Jackson was chosen by Diego Caraway, simply because somehow she seemed to have stolen his heart and soared above many others in what was only supposed to be a competition to choose his bride. After backstabbing Dena pulled unrealistic and drastic stunts to prove a point to Diego's mother Keisha, and to show Diego that he'd made a mistake by choosing Christina over her, it leaves the couple in shambles. Diego's thoughts, unfortunately, aren't on his marriage, which drives Christina to fantasize about an affair with her close friend Chad. He also neglects his friendships as he wallows in Dena's glory of defeating him and ripping through his family. To her dismay, Diego only serves a sentence of three months behind bars before he's free, and the hunt was on to find the villainous young woman. In the final installment, the couple comes face to face with Diego's addiction to liquor and money, and if he doesn't snap out of it, then he might have to come to grips with losing Christina for good. If not losing her because of his long nights and early mornings and his drunken messes, then it would most definitely be to a tall, corporate Black stallion whom Christina has already had relations with. Will he finally step up and leave the past behind him, and sober up just enough to prove his love for her before it's too late? Even the Caraway family is at odds when the truth about what Markiesha did to Dena is brought to the forefront. Christina must stand in between the three conniving people and try to patch things up before she makes the ultimate decision to walk away from all of the drama. But is there a shimmer of hope to stay and marry into the craziness? Is love even strong enough for her to claim Diego's hand after all that's happened? Is she as strong as she appears to be? Hopefully, Diego can show his woman why it was she was chosen in the first place before she slips out of his grasp and walks away into a much better life than the troubles that Jackson, Mississippi has held.

'A Justifiable Obsession' traces the evolution of Ontario's relationship with the federal government in the years following the Second World War. Through extensive archival research in both national and provincial sources, P.E. Bryden demonstrates that the province's successive Conservative governments played a crucial role in framing the national agenda – although this central relationship has received little attention compared to those that have been more volatile. As such, Bryden's study sheds light on an important but largely ignored chapter in Canadian political history. Bryden focuses on the politicians and strategists who guided the province through the negotiation of intergovernmental economic, social, and constitutional issues, including tax policies, the design of the new social welfare net, and efforts to patriate the constitution. Written in a lucid, engaging style that captures the spirit of the politics of postwar Canada, 'A Justifiable Obsession' is a significant contribution to our understanding of Ontario's politics and political culture.

In an absorbing mystery thriller, a teenage girl with a past arrives in a city: new name, new identity, new foster family. She has chosen the city herself, and is fascinated by its harmony and beauty, but is clearly in fear of discovery. She is nursing a secret from her early childhood, a secret that produces new terrors for her the moment she fears her identity has been spotted. A parallel narrative tells of a young architect's apprentice, Zak, in 1750 - working with Jonathan Forrest, a man obsessed with past Druidic mysteries and a new architectural vision for the city. He plans to create the world's first circular terraced street, the King's Circus - a plan greeted with scorn and derision. Zac soon realises there's more than just obsession with an architectural vision; there is some secret associated with building a hidden chamber in the centre of the Circus. But Zac himself has his own confused and highly destructive agenda ... These narratives are framed by the voice of Bladud - mythical first builder of the city, destined to die in trying to fly. And ultimately his narrative brings all together in a clever and brilliantly intriguing climax.

London:1673. With her family ruined by war, penniless thirteen-year-old Sarah Jennings is overjoyed to be chosen as a maid of honor at the bawdy Restoration court of Charles II. She soon wins the trust of Lady Anne of York, a lonely princess who becomes one of her staunchest allies. And though Sarah’s beauty stirs the desires of jaded aristocrats, she wants a grander future for herself than that of a pampered mistress. Only one man possesses ambition and passions that match her own: John Churchill, a dashing young military hero. He would ask for her hand—and win her heart for a lifetime…. But Whitehall Palace is ripe with ever-shifting alliances and sexual scandal, and Sarah will need all her cleverness to succeed. Titles, power, and wealth are the prizes, while an idle whisper in the wrong ear can bring a cry of treason, and the executioner’s ax. Will Sarah’s loyalties––and her dreams––falter when a king is toppled from his throne and a new queen crowned? And will she dare risk everything when her one true love is tested by a passionate, dangerous obsession? Brimming with the intrigue and sensuality of one of history’s most decadent courts, Duchess brings to vivid life the story of an unforgettable woman who determines her own destiny––outspoken, outrageous, but most of all true to herself.
