Summary : Power plays are hard. Trying to one up the stranger who banged me senseless last night? Definitely harder. Do you believe in fate? I was stranded on a deserted stretch of highway late one night. A stranger with broad shoulders and smoldering eyes saved me. Got me back on my way. To my flight out of the country. And all he asked for in return was a kiss. That was a year ago. I never thought I’d see him again. But out of the blue, there he was. Melting my panties with his chiseled physique and insistent charm. Sweeping me away into a night that lasted clear on to morning. A morning I had to face alone. So, I snuck out and left him. I had to. To deal with a corporate shark hell-bent on taking a bite from my family’s billion-dollar firm. Imagine my surprise to see those same smoldering eyes flirting with me across a negotiation table. But I have to focus. Stand my ground. Keep my family’s company safe. And even though my number’s unlisted, he just texted me. And his sinful smile keeps daring me to answer it. But we’re in a crowded boardroom. With a hundred-million-dollars on the line. What could he possibly want?  Ruthless Wars is a sexy stand-alone romantic suspense, but the characters and storyline intertwine in the Ruthless Billionaires Club. Full Steam Ahead. Lexxi James Books are seductive, suspenseful romances filled with fun, sensual and sizzling high-heat love scenes.

Summary : The award-winning author presents a provocative, thoroughly modern revisionist biographical history of one of America’s greatest and most influential families—the Roosevelts—exposing heretofore unknown family secrets and detailing complex family rivalries with his signature cinematic flair. Drawing on previously hidden historical documents and interviews with the long-silent "illegitimate" branch of the family, William J. Mann paints an elegant, meticulously researched, and groundbreaking group portrait of this legendary family. Mann argues that the Roosevelts’ rise to power and prestige was actually driven by a series of intense personal contest that at times devolved into blood sport. His compelling and eye-opening masterwork is the story of a family at war with itself, of social Darwinism at its most ruthless—in which the strong devoured the weak and repudiated the inconvenient. Mann focuses on Eleanor Roosevelt, who, he argues, experienced this brutality firsthand, witnessing her Uncle Theodore cruelly destroy her father, Elliott—his brother and bitter rival—for political expediency. Mann presents a fascinating alternate picture of Eleanor, contending that this "worshipful niece" in fact bore a grudge against TR for the rest of her life, and dares to tell the truth about her intimate relationships without obfuscations, explanations, or labels. Mann also brings into focus Eleanor’s cousins, TR’s children, whose stories propelled the family rivalry but have never before been fully chronicled, as well as her illegitimate half-brother, Elliott Roosevelt Mann, who inherited his family’s ambition and skill without their name and privilege. Growing up in poverty just miles from his wealthy relatives, Elliott Mann embodied the American Dream, rising to middle-class prosperity and enjoying one of the very few happy, long-term marriages in the Roosevelt saga. For the first time, The Wars of the Roosevelts also includes the stories of Elliott’s daughter and grandchildren, and never-before-seen photographs from their archives. Deeply psychological and finely rendered, illustrated with sixteen pages of black-and-white photographs, The Wars of the Roosevelts illuminates not only the enviable strengths but also the profound shame of this remarkable and influential family.

Summary : The First and Second Italian Wars describes the course of military operations and political machinations in Italy from 1494 to 1504. The narrative begins with the French conquest of much of Italy. But the French hold collapsed. The second French invasion gained Northern Italy. This time, the French allied with the Pope’s son, Cesare Borgia. Cesare managed to double deal too many people; his efforts ended in disaster. The French agreement with the Spanish allowed them to retake Naples only to be defeated at the Garigliano by the famous general, Gonzalo de Cordoba. These wars were not just another series of medieval fights. These battles were different from what had gone before: the French utilized a new method of artillery transport; the Spanish commander formulated a new system of military unit organization, and Cesare Borgia sought different systems of raising troops and forming states. And all the powers managed to spend vast amounts of money the likes of which no one had imagined before. This was the emergence of the so-called Military Revolution.

Summary : "The Most Monstrous of Wars recounts the unprecedented brutality that turned the seemingly simple task of subduing a remote Italian province into one of the most grisly, demoralizing struggles Napoleon ever encountered. Seasoned by victories in Prussia and Austria, the French military met an enemy in Italy for which it was totally unprepared - the Calabrian peasant. The vicious contest that ensued illustrates the ability of primitively armed guerrillas to cripple a modern, well-equipped, and previously invincible army. In the first full-length study of the Calabrian War, Milton Finley depicts the conflict - in all its gory detail - as a turning point in the Napoleonic wars and as the prototype for twentieth-century guerrilla warfare." "Drawing on material from military archives and from soldiers' memoirs, Finley offers a narrative that is as much social history as military chronicle. He portrays both the Calabrian and French perspectives, from the Calabrian warriors who were motivated by religious fanaticism to pay any price in defense of their province, to the French soldiers who, when faced with an enemy who excelled in atrocities, responded in kind. Finley explores the dehumanizing effects of the bloody contest that killed 20,000 French soldiers, depleted Napoleon's treasury, and escalated to a level of savagery unmatched even in twentieth-century combat. As he underscores the general futility of partisan warfare, Finley blames Napoleon for failing to learn the lesson of Calabria and for becoming embroiled in a similar quagmire in Spain, which ultimately cost him his throne."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Summary : Many African countries are caught up in perennial or recurrent political conflicts that often culminate in devastating wars. These flaring conflicts and wars create harrowing economic hardships, dire refugee problems, and sustain a sense of despair in such countries. By their nature, these conflicts and wars affect writers in profound and sometimes paradoxical ways. On the one hand, literature-whether fiction, poetry, drama, or even memoirs-is animated by conflict. On the other hand, the sense of dislocation as well as the humanitarian crises unleashed by wars and other kinds of conflicts also constitute grave impediments to artistic exploration and literary expression. Writers and artists are frequently in the frontline of resistance to the kinds of injustices and abuses that precipitate wars and conflicts. Consequently, they are often detained, exiled, and even killed either by agents of state terror or by one faction or another in the tussle for state control. Writers, Writing Conflicts and Wars in Africa is a collection of testimonies by various writers and scholars who have experienced, or explored, the continent's conflicts and woes, including how the disruptions shape artistic and literary production. The book is divided into two broad categories: in one, several writers speak directly, and with rich anecdotal details about the impact wars and conflicts have had in the formation of their experience and work; in the second, a number of scholars articulate how particular writers have assimilated the horrors of wars and conflicts in their literary creations. The result is an invaluable harvest of reflections and perspectives that open the window into an essential, but until now sadly unexplored, facet of the cultural and political experience of African writers. The broad scope of this collection-covering Darfur, the Congolese crisis, Biafra, Zimbabwe, South Africa, among others-is complemented by a certain buoyancy of spirit that runs through most of the essays and anecdotes. _______________________ * Okey Ndibe teaches fiction and literature at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

Summary : “I have no doubt this will end up being the best fantasy debut of the year [...] I have absolutely no doubt that [Kuang’s] name will be up there with the likes of Robin Hobb and N.K. Jemisin.” -- Booknest A Library Journal, Paste Magazine, Vulture, BookBub, and ENTROPY Best Books of 2018 pick! Washington Post "5 Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novel of 2018" pick! A Bustle "30 Best Fiction Books of 2018" pick! A brilliantly imaginative talent makes her exciting debut with this epic historical military fantasy, inspired by the bloody history of China’s twentieth century and filled with treachery and magic, in the tradition of Ken Liu’s Grace of Kings and N.K. Jemisin’s Inheritance Trilogy. When Rin aced the Keju—the Empire-wide test to find the most talented youth to learn at the Academies—it was a shock to everyone: to the test officials, who couldn’t believe a war orphan from Rooster Province could pass without cheating; to Rin’s guardians, who believed they’d finally be able to marry her off and further their criminal enterprise; and to Rin herself, who realized she was finally free of the servitude and despair that had made up her daily existence. That she got into Sinegard—the most elite military school in Nikan—was even more surprising. But surprises aren’t always good. Because being a dark-skinned peasant girl from the south is not an easy thing at Sinegard. Targeted from the outset by rival classmates for her color, poverty, and gender, Rin discovers she possesses a lethal, unearthly power—an aptitude for the nearly-mythical art of shamanism. Exploring the depths of her gift with the help of a seemingly insane teacher and psychoactive substances, Rin learns that gods long thought dead are very much alive—and that mastering control over those powers could mean more than just surviving school. For while the Nikara Empire is at peace, the Federation of Mugen still lurks across a narrow sea. The militarily advanced Federation occupied Nikan for decades after the First Poppy War, and only barely lost the continent in the Second. And while most of the people are complacent to go about their lives, a few are aware that a Third Poppy War is just a spark away . . . Rin’s shamanic powers may be the only way to save her people. But as she finds out more about the god that has chosen her, the vengeful Phoenix, she fears that winning the war may cost her humanity . . . and that it may already be too late.

Summary : Civilization has long sought to limit the violence and ugliness of war. This book traces the recent history of these efforts, and explores important contemporary issues in the area. Geoffrey Best shows how the Second World War prompted reconstruction of international law, and charts the fortunes of its relations with war since then. He critically surveys the whole range of contemporary armed conflicts - high-tech international wars, wars of national liberation, revolutionary risings, and civil wars. Far more than a litany of the trouble-spots and tragedies of the second half of the twentieth century, this book offers an original and thought-provoking approach to contemporary history, law, politics, and ethics, and will be essential reading for anyone concerned with war.
