Sweet Opposites Attract Rom Com

What’s a reality TV dating show and Mr. Darcy got in common? Me, that’s what.

Picture this: I’m a contestant on a reality dating show. Me, chasing love? Oh, I’ve got much grander plans than that. My activewear line needs some serious spotlight, and apparently, this show is the ticket. But let’s get real, is being paired with a Mr. Darcy knockoff really the price I have to pay?

That would be a deeply regretful yes.

Now, let’s talk about Sebastian Huntington-Ross, the wannabe Mr. Darcy. This guy is straight out of a Jane Austen novel, like they plucked him from the pages and plopped him right on set. Dark features, chiseled jawline, shoulders that could block out the sun, and an English accent that could melt glaciers. But guess what? Beyond those looks, he’s got an ego the size of a hot air balloon, arrogance that could win awards, and a smugness that could power a small city.

Science Fiction Romance

Her grumpy orc neighbor has the best buns in town – and his baked goods aren’t bad either!

When Elara flees corporate life to open a coffee shop in the small southern town of Fairhaven Falls, the last thing she is looking for is a relationship. But when she meets Grondar, the gruff orc owner of the bakery next door, sparks fly. Literally.

Grondar has been burned by human females before. He has no intention of letting the feisty little female next door get under his skin – no matter how attractive he finds her. And it certainly doesn’t mean he’s going to let her get away with sabotaging his business.

Despite their disastrous first meeting, Elara still finds herself having inappropriately heated thoughts about the massive orc next door. It doesn’t help that every time he stomps over to lecture her she ends up in his arms!

Romantic Comedy

Welcome to Seabury – where everyone knows everyone, the average tourist hasn’t got a clue it even exists, and that’s just how the locals like it!

Kate Hardy really doesn’t like change. Why would she when life’s pretty much perfect as it is?

She’s lived in the gorgeous coastal town of Seabury all her life – well, apart from that three-month blip in London – but she doesn’t like to think about that.

Now she’s back where she belongs – running her tiny seafront cafe, The Sardine, with her rescue dog Stanley at her side, and the occasional romantic (though decidedly brief) visit from a certain gorgeous French fisherman.

Movie & Video History & Criticism

In 1931 Universal Studios released Dracula starring Bela Lugosi. This box office success was followed by a string of films featuring macabre characters and chilling atmospherics, including Frankenstein, The Mummy, and The Invisible Man. With each new film, Universal established its place in the Hollywood firmament as the leading producer of horror films, a status it enjoyed for more than twenty years.

In The Monster Movies of Universal Studios, James L. Neibaur examines the key films produced by the studio from the early 1930s through the mid-1950s. In each entry, Neibaur recounts the movie’s production, provides critical commentary, considers the film’s commercial reception, and offers an overall assessment of the movie’s significance. Neibaur also examines the impact these films had on popular culture, an influence that resonates in the cinema of fear today.

I would be thrilled about starting my final year of med school if it weren’t for one terrible thing: I have to spend the next four weeks doing a rotation in Lakewood Medical Center’s emergency department, which is pretty much the last place in the hospital where I want to work. On my very first day in the ED, I completely humiliate myself in front of a handsome, enigmatic man . . . and then I learn that he’s Dr. Wesley Kent, the emotionless attending physician who’s going to be my supervisor for the entire month. I’m convinced things can’t get any worse, and I’m sure that I never want to set foot in the ED again, but as I begin learning what working in the emergency department is really all about, my world is thrown upside-down . . . especially when I realize that I might be falling for Dr. Kent, the one man who is totally off limits.

Private Investigator Mysteries

The line between the disabled and the non-disabled is shrinking. Computers, video cameras, high-definition monitors, biometric devices and voice recognition software have moved my life closer to that of somebody who’s fully able bodied, while the same technology is creating a more sedentary, house-bound life for those who have no disability whatsoever. From what I’ve read, I lead a more active life than a lot of people nowadays.

Winner of multiple awards including the Edgar Grand Master, Jeffery Deaver presents a tale and a brief biography of the quadriplegic crime-scene expert who provides his services to the New York Police Department—as well as federal and international law enforcement—from his well-equipped home lab on Central Park West . . .
