Michael Ashton, the Duke of Ravensdale, is caught in two scandals, neither of which is his own doing. The first involves a woman (don’t they always), and the second…well, it also involves a woman and a large sum of stolen money. In order to save the reputation Michael has spent his life rebuilding, he must track down the widow of his presumed-dead cousin in order to charm…or seduce her missing husband’s whereabouts from her.
After being abandoned a mere hour after her wedding, Blythe Willoughby Ashton wonders how she could have been fooled by such a cad and still feels humiliated and betrayed a year later. Her husband wooed her, married her, took her money and left. When she learns of his death, she decides unceremoniously to go on with her life—without a man. So when Thomas’s cousin—a Duke, no less—shows up uninvited on her doorstep, looking more handsome and irresistible than any man should, Blythe instinctively doesn’t trust him nor does she want to like him.
We all want to have the fine things in life. We want a good life, live in good neighborhoods, take our kids to the best schools, and do a lot of other things but one thing about all this is that there is money involved. It is just the sad truth that everything has a price tag. Well, everyone wants to have money and afford all these things but when the money is not available, the logical thing that would happen is that they should just cut their losses and forget about it altogether. However, things are different in the modern world because we can always get what we cannot pay for, at least upfront, thanks to debt.
This book will teach you everything you need to know about getting out of debt. You will no longer be thinking “How do I repay my debts?” or “How do I manage my money better?”

Thomas Bulfinch (July 15, 1796 – May 27, 1867) might never be as well known as his famous father, Charles Bulfinch, who was the architect of the Massachusetts State House and also worked on the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. However, Bulfinch was successful in his own right, working at a bank while also spending time writing.
Bulfinch reorganized Psalms to create a history of the Hebrews, but he is best known forBulfinch’s Mythology, which is comprised of The Age of Fable, The Age of Chivalry, andLegends of Charlemagne. Relying on writers like Ovid and Virgil, Bulfinch’s motive was to make mythology more popular. In that, he succeeded, as his works are still popular more than 150 years after they debuted.

One of the most popular fasts in recent years has been the Daniel Fast, a 21-day period of prayer and fasting based on the Old Testament prophet’s fasts recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10.
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, in which certain foods are restricted and others are consumed. This fast is similar to a ‘purified’ vegan diet; in addition to the exclusion of all animal products, no additives, preservatives, sweeteners, caffeine, alcohol, white flour, or processed foods are allowed. With the Daniel Fast people can eat as much Daniel-Fast-friendly food as they would like. Though most people begin the Daniel Fast for a spiritual purpose, many are amazed by the physical transformation that takes place. Many with high cholesterol experience a drop to healthy levels; people who have wrestled with weight issues are suddenly able to lose the pounds.
