Janet prefers her men submissive, her relationships confined to a club environment. Which is why her attraction to former Navy SEAL Max doesn’t make a lot of sense. There isn’t a submissive bone in his honed, muscular body, suggesting that her interest in him is best indulged as a private fantasy. After a crisis situation reveals a different side of them both, the attraction becomes mutual, explosive and undeniable. They take the plunge, willing to see if the give-and-take of their unexpected relationship can satisfy their deepest desires. Unfortunately, ghosts from their past might take the reins from them both, destroying the balance of power before their love can find a way to tip the scales.

Totem Rituals and the American Flag
Author: Carolyn Marvin,Associate Professor of Communication Carolyn Marvin,David W. Ingle
Pubpsher: Cambridge University Press
Category: Social Science
This compelling book argues that American patriotism is a civil religion of blood sacrifice, which periodically kills its children to keep the group together. The flag is the sacred object of this religion; its sacrificial imperative is a secret which the group keeps from itself to survive. Expanding Durkheim's theory of the totem taboo as the organizing principle of enduring groups, Carolyn Marvin uncovers the system of sacrifice and regeneration which constitutes American nationalism, shows why historical instances of these rituals succeed or fail in unifying the group, and explains how mass media are essential to the process. American culture is depicted as ritually structured by a fertile center and sacrificial borders of death. Violence plays a key part in its identity. In essence, nationalism is neither quaint historical residue nor atavistic extremism, but a living tradition which defines American life.
The Neutral One is what we are at the core of being, the reconciliation of the seeming opposites of being. The Neutral One represents the Christ Self, the Sun of Righteousness, the Day star.
Although we cannot say what the Neutral One is, we Can. We can by saying and not saying what it is at the same time.
To describe the indescribable, we must do so without doing so. The Neutral One is what it is and what it is not too in reconciliation.
The Neutral One is that which is with us always, from everlasting to everlasting, without beginning or end. It is the beginning and the end of all things without being either, for it is ever before and after itself as two parts of the same thing.
The Neutral One is the living Christ that reconciles all things of heaven and earth unto one and delivers that unto God that God may be realized to be, indeed, the all in all dwelling in all.
Fascination with the dark and death threats are now accepted features of contemporary fantasy and fantastic fictions for young readers. These go back to the early gothic genre in which child characters were extensively used by authors. The aim of this book is to rediscover the children in their work.
Something is amiss in Alder Cove. Some say that it has all happened before and that it was bound to happen again. But these are only rumors. Some say that wandering by yourself at night, especially in the surrounding hills that border the town, is suicide: there are things out there that will eat you. But, again, these are only rumors. They say the river is haunted and that swimming there, in that deep, dark, cold water is treacherous. The current is strong, true, but worse, something lives there, and she, yes, she, will grab you and pull you under, swallowing you in one, painful gulp. And so it is here, near this river, near these hills, among these rumors, that Zeke and his family has just moved; it is here that Zeke will discover that this seemingly quiet seaside settlement holds a deadly secret. In his desire to discover the truth of the rumors that the small town holds Zeke discovers that an ancient curse has returned to Alder Cove expecting payment for the prosperity it has enjoyed over the last 30 years. Arriving in his new home, Zeke finds that the deteriorating town has left hidden clues that he must locate in order to protect the town, the people, and most importantly, Zeke's own family from further destruction and death. Zeke and his two friends, along with Zeke's own father who shares in some of the secrets the town holds, brave a night of terror and possible death as they fight to rid the town of its curse. With the help of prophetic dreams, ancient manuscripts and Runes, the battle with the mythical Korrigan becomes an unforgettable climactic moment of good versus evil. Brad Cameron is a High School English teacher who has been inspired to write Young Adult fiction through his countless hours of teaching and reading to young adults. With his wife Laurie, also an educator, Brad makes his home in the Pacific Northwest. Zeke Proper and the Sacrifice at Alder Cove is his first novel.
